Islanders Gain Former NFL Player Damien Woody On The Bandwagon
By Matt O'Leary
The New York Islanders are picking up some steam and some new fans. Former Jet, Damien Woody is now on board with the team.
When you win 10 games in a row, you’re going to get some attention. That’s exactly what’s happening with the New York Islanders as they continue to win games and people who normally don’t talk about them begin to talk about them.
That’s happened on local sports talk, the NHL Network, and just about anywhere else the National media can talk about hockey. The Isles added a former NFL o-lineman to the mix of people who are interested in them too, Damien Woody.
Woody, played for the Jets during their last run of success from 2008-2010. He now works for ESPN as an analyst, and he also gives commentary on the Jets on Twitter.
On Tuesday, Woody was ranting about the state of New York sports, when people chimed in to remind him that it’s not all bad.
The New York Islanders twitter account got involved and invited him to a game. He seemed excited, asking Islander fans which game he should go to. A few hours later the Isles win their 10th game in a row and he quote tweets them saying “it’s like that?!” and has a GIF of Kevin Hart nodding along.
For the latest update, Woody tweeted that he and the Islanders have something up their sleeves. Anytime the Isles can gain fans, especially some who work for ESPN and are famous for playing football it’s a good thing.
Give me all the attention on the Islanders that we can get, and welcome aboard Damien Woody. This is the best run franchise in New York, not named the Yankees.
