Scott Mayfield asked what I think every New York Islanders fan who has a twitter account was thinking this morning from a Michael Dal Colle tweet.

Oh, Twitter, the not so family friendly website that lets you connect with your favorite New York Islanders and other athletes. Twitter reminds me of that Johnny Cash song “A Backstage Pass”. It goes like this:

"There were wackoes and weirdoes and dingbats and dodoesAnd athletes and movie stars and David Allan Coe"

Minus the David Allan Coe part that could be a textbook definition of Twitter. Anyway, back to the point of this article if you haven’t noticed Josh Ho-Sang has been tweeting out motivational messages nearly every day.

Here are some of my favorite ones:

Essentially, they’re messages like this trying to put positivity into our lives on an otherwise dark and depressing internet website. Nonetheless, Ho-Sang’s actions may have sparked a new interest for Michael Dal Colle or did they?

Dal Colle usually doesn’t use Twitter so it came as a bit of a surprise when we saw the inspirational words fly from the Twitter handle of @MDalColle71.

Punctuation and grammar certainly don’t seem to be Dal Colle’s strong suit, it’s not my strong suit either,  so I won’t be getting on his case for that. Is this really Michael Dal Colle talking? Scott Mayfield had a conspiracy theory to this Twitter saga:

This seems like a logical explanation from Mayfield. Ho-Sang would certainly be on the top of any list of top suspects in this case. He tweets out motivation on the regular.

Or my own personal theory is Dal Colle is trolling. Twitter is essentially heaven for trolls and the twitter eggs of the world. Anyone who enjoys anonymously spewing hate normally does well on social media in general but so do the trolls.

This is a classic troll job from MDC if I’ve ever seen it. To me, this is Dal Colle making fun of Ho-Sang’s style of tweeting (subtweet game strong by the way). So what do you think? Dal Colle really tweeted, Ho-Sang tweeted it from MDC’s phone or a troll job? Vote on the EOI Twitter page
