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.

Excellent news. And right shall always win... or so I'm told.

Chris, I am glad that The Islanders Children's Foundation got the $25K, I really am, but it still should have been $50K. The Islanders won this thing fair and square, and the Garden jobbed a bunch of Long Island kids out of another $2K. That is the way that I will always remember it.
