Mascot Day

Extra security has been ordered into the Nassau Coliseum vicinity for the Islanders home game Sunday Afternoon
March 10th vs. the Atlanta Thrashers.
The additional security is NOT for the following reasons:

* Aftermath of the 9-11-01 tragedy

** Islander fans getting ready to commit suicide if the team loses to YET ANOTHER basement dwelling team

*** The potential for Alec Baldwin to show up and say more stupid things ( before he leaves the country)

NO – Here is the issue at hand


Here is the starting lineup for the Mascots

Sparky – New York Islanders

Thrash – Atlanta Thrashers

Harvey the Hound – Calgary Flames

Blades the Bear – Boston Bruins ( BOSTON has a Mascot???)

Stormy – Carolina Hurricanes

Spartacat – Ottawa Senators

Storm – Bridgeport Sound Tigers

QuackerJack – Long Island Ducks (baseball)

Special Guest star : from the New York Mets – Mr. Met

Scratched from the lineup

SJ Sharkie – San Jose Sharks – out 2-3 months – broken ribs suffered in fight with Crackhead Theo (CHT)


Noting that CHT has a road game in Pittsburgh on Saturday Afternoon the 9th of March – and a home game the 11th vs. Montreal at MSG – Special forces will be guarding the mascots from CHT.

Noted anatgonists Thunderbug from Tampa Bay and Buffalo’s Sabretooth have home games and are conflicted out of the Nassau Coliseum for this event.

Noted antagonist mascot Stanley C. Panther from the Florida Panthers has refused to appear – without referring to the diminutive Rangers forward – noted that ” a threat existed in the metropolitan area” .

So when you are searched before the game tomorrow by the police – they will be looking to fortify the area to protect the mascots. Since he is not playing anyway – the New York Ranger$ may send Mark Messier as their mascot – to represent the current state of the team – he will be dressed as a Cro- Magnon and will be flinging dollar bills to the kids – as the overpaid/overaged roster that the team has.
