It appears the arena the New York Islanders called home for parts of five years, forgot that the team existed and played in the building.

Trying to find content for social media teams hasn’t been an easy thing. The New York Islanders have done a really good job with their Isles Daily Challenges for example and other brands are starting to do similar things.

The Barclays Center official account, @barclayscenter tweeted out a Barclays Center Bing. Some of the things were “took the subway to an event”, “went to a Nets game”, “saw your favorite college team play”, etc.

You can go up and down this board, in all 24 spaces and not a single time will you see anything Islanders related. No, I’m not making this up.

Are we surprised though? How many times has the Barclays Center hinted at them not wanting the Islanders to be there or completely botching something Islanders related.

At first, they tried to change the goal horns, only the championship banners were raised, and those awful black and white uniforms were launched to help “commemorate” the move to Brooklyn.

If you walked around the building you would think it was a neutral site facility, not an Islanders game. So now, after the Islanders played their final game in the building just a couple of months ago, they don’t even get included on Barclays bingo board.

Who makes this stuff? Can’t think of another team we hosted for half a decade, let’s put in “ate Nathan’s fries” that’ll really get the people going.

You genuinely couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried. The Barclays Center twitter account hasn’t responded to the Islanders fans in the comments who found this lame excuse for a bingo board and I doubt they do.

At this point, all you can do is laugh at the lack of self-awareness.
