Ha ha, I'm not a big Hocky fan either, not in years anyway. When I lived in Plattsburgh a lot of people I knew there would play on the frozen lakes etc. after work and on weekends; but I suck on skates, ha! I just remember his family on the Island, and many neighbors on the street, all getting together to hoot and howl in front of the tube at his house. But they were into all kinds of sports big time anyway. I have a soft spot for the Yankees too, and when young a Reggie Jackson fan #44, though I did like the Dodgers better back then, LOL. My friend also had a large shark mounted he caught off Montauk Point (I think that's right) hanging on his wall. I enjoyed my times there, and the area was nice.
Anyway, best of luck to you too! Take care.
