Yep. Tonight it starts. The Sharks. The ice. My team. The hunt for The Cup. Is this the year? Will everyone stay healthy? Will it be an easy ride to the playoffs or will we have to scrape and claw our way there? Will we even make it to the playoffs? How will the new captain work out? Is this the year? Will there be regulars around my seat that know the game? Will I find some tall guy in the seat in front of me who leans forward? Is this the year? Who will the workhorse goalie be? Will I find a ton of newbies in my area that don't know about waiting for a break in play? Just how expensive is beer going to be? Is this the year? Who will get traded before the season is over? What new infraction will the referees incessantly call this season? The Sharks. My team. Tonight it starts. Another Sharks hockey season. Another quest for The Cup. Is this the year? The last couple of years, while the regular season has been fun....well, last years post season was a bit of a horror show.
As for the t-shirt, I found it at the Sharks store at The Tank for $25. Normally I wouldn't go near anything that had "Los Tiburones" on it, but I did think the skull was pretty cool.
Lace the skates. Drop The Puck. Game On!
