With the New York Islanders struggling the Islanders subreddit has resorted to talking about Islands. Thanks a lot, Garth!
Happy Easter! Instead of getting into some depressing New York Islanders deep dive on a holy day, we are going to keep it light today instead. Today, we’ll look at the Islanders subreddit and how they’ve resorted to talking about islands.
Everyone copes with things differently. I, myself, try to use humor to deal with things and apparently so does the social media platform Reddit.
Under the New York Islanders section of the website, you can normally find conversations amongst fans about the team and so forth. Now, Islanders Reddit has turned into a place where people discuss, you guessed it, islands. How clever.
Here were some of my personal favorites from the updates.
"I’m surprised this hasn’t been mentioned yet. Long Island, the place many of us call home, is both the longest island at 118 miles long, and largest island by land at 1,214 sqare miles in the continental US. It’s also the most populated Island in the US, with a population of 7,869,820 people. from r/NewYorkIslanders"
"This island has the world’s biggest penalty box. from r/NewYorkIslanders"
"The sushi on this island is delicious and it gave the world a lot of great anime from r/NewYorkIslanders"
"This Island produced Andrew MacDonald, also known as a 2nd and 3rd round pick! from r/NewYorkIslanders"
Some of the updates were just interesting facts about islands, while others were hockey or Islanders themed which made them that much better. There are dozens more so you can check out all of them right here.
Only three more games to go ladies and gents we can all get through it together, but for now, if you’ll excuse me I have some island history to brush up on.
