    This is very surprising that people from Long Island admit there is a NY state outside Long Island! I mean they consider Mount Vernon and Yonkers to be “upstate”. LOL

  2. Just sayin says:

    The Lizards should play a couple-3 games off Long Island.

    This is very suprising to see. It will deffinatly feel weird seeing the New York Lizards on their jersy. This is good to see that they are trying to expand the game and make their team a part of a bigger community. Hopefully they will play in stadiums all around the New York area and not just in long island. I think this would be benifitial because it would attract a lot of people from upstate New York.
