7th Woman

7th Woman's picture

Dee Karl grew up in countless neighborhoods of Brooklyn and Queens but became an “Islander” when her family finally settled in Jericho in the late '70s. Coming from a family of musicians rather than sports fans, she missed the Islanders’ dynasty years even though she lived in their own backyard. It’s a 45-minute drive to the Coliseum, but it’s a small price to pay for NHL Hockey. The love for hockey came in 1992 when she bought a bar and realized sports HAD to be on the TV. By 2003 she had become a passionate Islanders fan. She entered and won the 2004 NHL 7th Man contest for the NY Islanders .
