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:

"As of Friday, August 15, 2014, The ALS Association has received $9.5 million in 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."
