The ALS Bucket Challenge has been sweeping the continent -- and has seen a tremendous amount of support from the hockey community, particularly the Islanders.
Howie Rose accepted Doug Weight's challenge....
and then nominated (among others) Jiggs McDonald
Now, in 32+ years of working on Islanders telecasts I've only worked regularly with two play-by-play men -- Howie and Jiggs.
(from Ed Westfall Night in 2011 -- a little bit younger, and a little bit drier)
Jiggs has nominated me (along with Ed Westfall, who worked with Jiggs, and then with Howie).
What will I do? Stay tuned.
But in the meantime, whether you've been nominated or not, visit ALSA.org and make a donation and help fight this disease.

And here's The Skinny I promised you, according to the ALS Association:

donations compared to $1.6 million during the same time period last year
(July 29 to August 15). These donations have come from existing donors
and 184,812 new donors to The Association."
