A quick note for the hardcore fans among us...
The always enthusiastic Corey Witt e-mailed me today with a brief promotional note. On Saturday, August 9th (10 AM-noon) the Islanders will be hosting an "open house" meet and greet featuring two new roster additions, Josh Bailey and Doug Weight (well, one's a certain roster addition).
Bailey is 18 years old and was this year's first round selection, while the ageless Weight (actually he's 37) was signed to impart his owl-like wisdom upon the suddenly youthful Islander squad. Despite the age disparity, the promotional flyer made no mention of whether Weight will be dispensing some fatherly-like advice to Bailey. You'll all just have to show up and find out for yourselves.
