Coliseum Connection: Jiggs McDonald
Jiggs McDonald was the voice of the Islanders during the team's golden days, and the Hall of Fame play-by-play announcer has a lot to say as the team says goodbye to Nassau Coliseum
"I'm surprised some nights that the glass didn't break - the noise and the decibel level that was reached," he says.
Jiggs calls Nassau Coliseum the loudest yet friendliest building in the league. He points to all the history that's happened at the Coliseum as its legacy.
"This building has hosted All-Star games, it's hosted Stanley Cup finals. It's lived up to everything that you could possibly throw at it. This should be the blueprint for every arena in the league," he says.
