The Skinny on ALS: From Howie to Jiggs to ....me....


The ALS Bucket Challenge has been sweeping the continent -- and has seen a tremendous amount of support from the hockey community, particularly the Islanders.


So --

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:
