Default My daughter told me she got over the Mike Richards trade

Now she wants a poster of Claude Giroux. I am failing miserably in getting my girls to be Islander fans. The younger one is still ticked off about Jeff Carter getting traded... "but Dad, what is a blue jacket anyway?"

"I have no idea Mellie, I have no idea."

Anyway they want me to take them down to watch a game soon. They loved the Coliseum last time we were there.

Could be worse, they could want me to take them to see Justin Bieber or Beyonce... yuck!

LOL! I am a big Isles fan, no matter how bad they are. I had season tickets for 2 years when I was living on the Island. Miss those times, Ive met A LOT of Islanders players. Never forget that playoff series with Toronto back in 2002.

I grew up an Islander fan, but we are in the shadow of Philadelphia and it certainly is an easier ride to Philly than the Coliseum, so I am going to grin and bear it. Plus there is a chance that the Isles will be the Seattle or Kansas City Aeros in the next couple of years.

I had them at the Coliseum the day before Thanksgiving and they were cheering for the Flyers. You can't control who you are going to root for, it just happens.

Their room is funny. There is a post of La La Loopsy, Strawberry Shortcake, and Mike Richards on the same wall.

I feel your pain. My daughter was cheering for the NY Giants to win their last playoff game, which broke my heart because I despise the Giants. I just hope that one day my daughter and/or son do not come up to me and say that they are Ducks fans.

I think it's funny how you end up with your favorite teams as you grow up. I originally became a Dolphins fan at the age of 4 because I liked the colors. It just grew from there.

This might work....lol

Tell your daughter:

"Tonight honey, the Isles beat the best hockey team in the league (Wings)"

As a Wings fan, I am embarassed with some of our losses lately - Isles thrashed, Leafs (down 3-0 after 1).
