There was a sign that said we welcome Patrick Flatley of the NY ISLANDERS.
Now I didnt know what hockey was and also I couldnt even pronounce Islanders right (i used the "s" so I said IS LANDERS?) I was only 9 at the time.
So I get up finally to Patrick
and asked who are you and who were the IS Landers and what is hockey.
laughed and for about 45 min to an hour he
explained the whole game to me while others waited.
People must have been wondering why on earth he
spent so much time talking to this little black kid (me haha).
So though I am a Rangers and Avalanche (and some what partial to the St. Louis Blues as well) fan I have his
Islanders autographed photo and his
card among my hockey memorabilia.
