With the New York Islanders and the rest of the league waiting out the Corona Virus, we needed ideas for the podcast and Twitter came through.
It’s been three days since the NHL decided to suspend their season due to COVID-19 and I’m starting to miss the New York Islanders. Luckily in today’s world, following along on Twitter helps things go by and makes you feel more connected with the fanbase.
It was no different yesterday when we started to get ideas for the podcast going. Obviously, there are no new games to talk about but that doesn’t mean we will stop recording altogether.
We received some clever ideas for what we can talk about so let’s go over each one and see if Mitch and I would be able to do it.
DIY and Health
The first idea comes from our guy Tristan Peck. In Eyes on Files, we can breakdown our preferred DIY implements. First, love the name but I’m not sure my advice would be helpful at all. My skillset pretty much stops and starts at talking into a microphone.
Mitch, on the other hand, is a little bit handier so perhaps he can offer some great DIY tips on how to build a snow fort or something.
Eyes on Piles is definitely more realistic. I’m Celiac so I can definitely offer some advice on how to eat gluten free and some of the best food and drink choices while on a gluten-free diet.
Shopping, Home Design, and Running
I’m the worst shopper there is. I’ll go to the store for a handful of things and end up buying so many snacks. It’s so bad. Eyes on Aisles would be interesting for sure, it would just be me talking about where to find the Lucky Charms and which supermarket is overrated.
Eyes on Tiles would be a huge flop from my end. Interior design could not interest me any less. If it’s blue or has blue in the pattern I will probably like it. Don’t ask me how to lay tile either, I haven’t the slightest clue.
I have the lung capacity of a newborn. I would be so bad at trying to run and podcast, I’d probably make it about a half mile before wanting to just lay down.
Road Rage and St Patrick’s Day
Road rage is right up my alley. Eyes on Riles would be perfect. I drive on the Southern State and LIE every day of my life, which is two of the most populated highways on the Island. I have plenty of stories to share and have the horn honking etiquette down to a science.
St Patrick’s Day being canceled (essentially) is something I have an opinion on. I could probably get a good rant or two in on Eyes on British Isles.
Eyes on Miles would be me yelling about the LIRR for a full-length podcast. The railroad stinks out loud and everybody knows it.
Mitch and I breaking down the OJ case. Oh, I’m totally in on that. Eyes on Trials would be such a blast. I’d probably have to binge the OJ documentary on Netflix first but then I’d be willing to record that would be so much fun.

There were tons of great puns tweeted our way yesterday which you can check out on our Twitter page @EyesonIslesFS. It’s not easy having the sports world taken away but these made us chuckle which is all we could really use right now.
