EXCLUSIVE: It's Official!
We now have the check, so they can't ever take it away from us. Hummergate is over.
Just a few minutes ago, three very kind men from GMC/Hummer brought a check for $25,000 to the Coliseum, where it was heartily accepted by Chris Dey, Garth Snow and Chris Campoli on behalf of the New York Islanders Children's Foundation.
Because I know there were still plenty of doubters out there, here's a picture of the check. Don't know if you can make it out, but it says we got it for "Islanders winning the Hummer Metro Ice Challenge." Not the co-winners. Don't tell that to the Rangers.
We'll never understand how it got botched on Sunday afternoon, although I should make clear it wasn't good guy Sam Rosen's fault. Sam just said what somebody told him to.
All's well that ends well.
