I was reading my timeline when suddenly it got taken over by a bunch of angry Islander fans. What was all the fuss about? As it turns out, they were fuming over Barclays Center introducing a awful new Islanders goal horn. Believe me. It is every bit as awful as it sounds.
Are they ser-ii–ou—ss?!?! I know the Isles relocated to Brooklyn and even have those ugly new third jerseys. But this is ridiculous. That goal horn is hideous. It reminds of a time when the franchise introduced those ugly Fish Sticks jerseys that had a resemblance to Stan Fischler. Oy voy.
I hope that’s not the case here. Why ruin a perfectly good goal horn? So far, the Islanders have sold over 8,000 season ticket plans at their new arena. Somewhat curiously, my Dad got a call from a salesperson who pitched a mini-plan for as low as $20. I guess they’re desperate. If they want to draw fans from Long Island, they better change it back to the more classic goal horn seen below with Islanders captain John Tavares winning Game 3 of last year’s first round.
