I was truly honored to be asked by the New York Islanders to come back to the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum last night to make one more special memory. I was joined by my buddy, Clinton Brown III at center ice as we dropped the puck between John Tavares and Mikko Koivu of the Minnesota Wild. http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=759601&navid=nhl:topheads
Clinton represented all of the great fans who have filled the Old Barn through more than four decades, and helped inspire those many Islander teams to achieve beyond most expectations. I first met Clinton when he was very young, recovering from some of his 20+ surgeries, and a fixture at our team practices at Cantiague Park. We would sit in his living room in Hicksville playing Nintendo and just becoming good friends. In hindsight, those visits served as an inspiration, many years later, to start the Companions in Courage Foundation.
Yours in courage,
Companions in Courage Foundation
