Coliseum Connection: Patrick 'Sign Guy' DowdPosted: Updated:
Islanders fan Patrick Dowd is better known as the "Sign Guy" at Islanders home games.
His inspirational signs greet the team every time they take the ice.
Dowd says his Coliseum Connection is the ambiance the old barn provides.
"What fans should really appreciate about the Coliseum is the ambiance that it has," says Dowd. "Even though it may not be glamorous and state of the art these days, when this team is doing well and they're just on a roll, that place gets so loud and so exciting that you walk out of there with shivers."
