Favorite TeamsNYI, NY Jets, St. John's basketball, NY Mets, Tottenham Hotspur
Most Hated TeamsRangers, Pittsburgh, NJD, Flyers. Call it a Patrick Division thing. Never really cared much about the Caps. I actually loved John Druce because of that series against the Rags a while ago.

Most Hated PlayersAll-time: Darcy Tucker, Tie Domi, Theo Fleury, John Davidson, anyone on the Oilers between '83-'88. Hated that team. Glenn Anderson more than anyone.Current: Sidney Crosby, Sean Avery, Jarko Rutuu. I would hate Ryan Hollweg but he just awful as a player.
Best Hockey MemoriesFour Cups in a row. Two parades down Hempstead Tpke. I was lucky enough to attend. LaFontaine winning game seven against the Caps in 4 OTs Easter morning listening on my walkman pretending to be sleeping. Game Six against Pittsburgh at NVMC with me in attendance in '93. David Volek burying Ray Ferraro's pass to beat Pitt in the same series. Shawn Bates penalty shot against TML in '02. The Al Arbour game against the Pens last season was special.
My Hockey TeamsIslander, plain and simple. One of my favorite possessions is my LaFontaine jersey with 15 players from that '92-'93 playoff team signed on it.
As a hockey player, I compare to...I always liked Mark Parrish and Mats Sundin because I thought my game kind of emulated theirs. Not as good however, of course.
