Islanders featured on HBO's Entourage, again

Long Island native Kevin Connolly, who plays the role of "E" in HBO's fantastic series "Entourage" showed more love to his hometown Islanders in last Sunday's episode.

An Islanders logo appeared on his computer desktop at Murray Berenson's office building - E's new place of work.

It's not strange that E is seen wearing an Islanders hat or shirt on the show. In fact, Connolly, who hails from Patchogue, NY, does it in real life. He also dropped the ceremonial first puck at a game last season. My girlfriend, who used to work for Starbucks, served him once and he was wearing an Isles shirt then, too. He signed a coffee cup for me "Chris, Best Wishes!!! Kevin Connolly." Had he signed it "Let's Go Islanders!" it probably would have brought a tear to my eye.
