One of the nicest arenas on Long Island. Or at least in Uniondale.


Greetings from the Mausoleum, where my view in the press box is currently overlooking the Islanders Ice Dancers working through their pre-game practice. No truth to the rumor one of them is next in line for the Islanders head coaching job.

Incidentally, when I walked in this afternoon after braving typical Long Island Expressway traffic, I was only a step behind back-up goaltender-turned-general-manager Garth Snow. It turns out he and I have a lot in common, which is to say, a few months back, neither of us appeared qualified to be overseeing a National Hockey League franchise. I’m still bitter that I never got an interview.

Anyway, not a lot to report early on, other than the home team looks exceptionally sharp and will certainly be crowd-pleasers this season. Of course, I’m talking about the Ice Dancers. The Islanders themselves are probably going to be awful.

OK. That’s all for now, back with more later…
