Former New York Jets Player A Rabid Fan Of The New York Islanders

from Steve Serby of the New York Post,

So the question for Dan Feeney was as follows:

If beer chugging was an Olympic sport, could you win a gold medal?

Dan Feeney chuckles and says:

“I don’t know. There’s a lot of good drinkers in the United States, so I don’t know. I’d like to think I’d be on the USA Drinking Team, for sure.”

Funny how life works sometimes. You spend your football career toiling in the anonymity of being an an offensive lineman, you sign a free-agent contract with the Jets as a key backup, and next thing you know, you become a viral cult hero, raucously cheering on the Islanders, whose fans are suddenly cheering you on as the Beer Chug Guy.

He will be the one with the mullet and the mustache at The Barn for Game 3 of Islanders-Lightning. He will be the one in an Islanders No. 67 jersey — his Jets number — whipping himself and a crew of Jets teammates and his new band of brothers, the Islanders fans, into even more of a frenzy.
