Much to Mr. Ryan's dismay, we have a tradition revolving around my first Sharks game of the season. We have drinks at Patty's, we miss shoot around and it's not even 50/50 that we make the puck drop, and we make our beers into sippy cups 'cause it's a shame to spill good beer.
Oh, and the Sharks lose. Every damn time.
I haven't made a game this year yet. At this point, I'm holding off in case they play the Wings in the playoffs. Ever since the reorganization after the strike, all the know-it-alls have predicted the end of the Wings as a dominant force. And yet, they are currently in a three way tie for the President's Cup*, given to the team having the best record in the season- the Stanley Cup is for winning the playoff tournament.
It looks like the Sharks will finish 5-7 and that means it could be the first round if Nashville gets their act together.
Let's go Red Wings!
Go in Peace
