New York Islanders - Your #Isles40th favorite moments
My best Islander story is when I first became a fan. My mom had been trying to get me to a Rangers game forever and I never had any interest. Then, in 7th grade, my school went on a field trip to a pre-season Islanders vs. Devils game. I don't remember much of the day but I have to assume that the Islanders won because I've been a die hard fan ever since. And now, I'm glad I never went to a Rangers game because who knows where I'd be now! I could be a Rangers fan rather than a fan of the best hockey team ever! Since then I've gotten my grandfather, brother, and close friend to be Islander fans as luck on my mother though.
