What a Wave!

Saturday night's Islander game was a big win for the Islanders, but among the most memorable moments from the contest was the show that the fans put on at the Coliseum. During a stoppage in the third period, someone in the building must have decided to bring back an old classic because before anybody knew it, the crowd was overcome by The Wave. Yes....The Wave. This, however, was no ordinary wave. Within seconds, the crowd was roaring and everyone in all three levels of the coliseum was participating. While seemingly meaningless, The Wave was quite the spectacle. It took a great defensive play by Andy Sutton to finally bring attention back to the ice after The Wave made its way around the arena at least 15 times! I for one hope that The Wave caught on. Only time will tell if we have discovered a new Coliseum tradition.

While not the best quality, here's a quick video clip of The Wave that captured the Coliseum crowd on Saturday.

Watchdog Spots HNLI

Hockey Night on Long Island has made great strides since debuting early this year, but today may mark the biggest step yet. Newsday columnist, Neil Best (aka Watchdog), has taken notice of the massive impact of Blogtalkradio on sports talk and wrote a great feature for his Friday column and an extended version of the story in his sports media blog. Both the print column and blog entry center on HNLI hosts Alex and Steve and the progress that the show has made since starting up in March. It's great to see a major contributor in the media take notice of HNLI.
