On Sentimentality

Mina and I were recently discussing how sentimentality affects our ability to rationalize and accept player trades. While neither of us would like to see Joe Thornton traded, for example, losing Patrick Marleau to a trade would be far worse. That might not bear out statistically speaking, but from a sentimentality stand point, it’s true. The […]

Why I Like Writing

@PezDOY, of trashboy and Day’s of Yorr fame, suggested this topic today on twitter, probably mostly as a joke, but I still found it intriguing. Writing is something I enjoy, although I don’t get to do it as often as I would like. People think being a stay at home parent is the shit, you […]

Recapping the NHL Awards

In what has become a yearly reminder that there are, in fact, fates worse than death, then NHL Awards show aired tonight in what is one of the most painful faux celebrations of sport the world has ever not seen. When you long for the days of the awards being some kitchy Canadian affair, you […]

Not at all Weekly Weecap

What’s a month between posts, eh? Anyway, while I was busy living the high flying, jet setting, sweet blogger life style, the Blackhawks won the Cup, ousting the Lightning, (whom I favored) in six games.  The Sharks also made some news, none of it involving a fight between teammates or Joe Thornton and Doug Wilson […]

New Coach In Town

For the past few days, I’ve been trying to decide how I feel about the Sharks hiring Peter DeBoer as their new coach. I’ve settled on, “well, at least it’s not Randy Carlyle,” because that really is the best summary of my feelings. I’m not too sure what to expect from DeBoer given all the […]

Miscellaneous Minutiae

First up, some minor notes: Hey, did you notice this today? Comic on DOY! Haven’t posted much of late, been busy busting blogger stereotypes from not my basement, but I have been keeping track of the Sharks, uh, moves. I’ll be disappearing come November, on account of having a newborn to care for, so I’ll […]

It’s Not You…No Wait. It Totally Is You.

Sharks, I just, I can’t. I just can’t. I can’t even. I don’t know about you anymore. You aren’t making the summer easy. I didn’t think you would, but it’s almost like you’re trying to drive me away. While we all knew change, much like winter, was coming, letting Todd walk seems like a bad […]

Jumbo Jabs

The Sharks cleaned out their lockers today, visibly bringing the terrible 2014-2015 season to a final end. Media was there and, as always, the Sharks had  few things to say about the way the season ended. Logan Couture made is unhappiness with the club’s culture known, the quote that got the most traction came from […]

The Season in Review

I debated just posting a really big poo emoji because it seemed like it would be the most appropriate  and succinct way to wrap up the season that was.  Sure, it wasn’t all bad, but there was a lot of not good, sub par, ok, total meh, and ehhh, could be better mixed in with […]

This is the End

Oh, hey, look at that. It hasn’t been nearly as long between posts as I was thinking. Apologies for the delay, but things have been really busy in Graytown lately, so blogging fell by the wayside. The Sharks, until basically tonight, kept refusing to end this hellish roller coaster of a season, winning JUST enough […]

The Week in Review

Stick a fork in this season because it is done. While not mathematically eliminated (yet) the Sharks remain a full eight points behind the Jets in the playoff race. Eight points that, let’s be honest, they aren’t likely to make up in the games that remain. The Sharks are also still six behind Calgary for […]

Party Line

In what I have to assume was one of the most awkward party lines ever, it has been reported that both Joe Thornton and DW received calls from Sharks majority owner, Hasso Plattner following their very public spat last week. What was said will never be known, but Thornton and DW are said to have […]

Jumbo Drops a Bomb

By now you’ve all seen this:               HO. LEE. PUCKS. That’s a helluva a bomb drop by the Sharks former Captain and occasional assistant/alternate Captain. What is going on here? Ok, so it’s not like we didn’t know that there were big problems in little teal land since last […]

Why Must You Lift Me Up and Then Break My Heart Again?

Can we talk about Saturday night’s game? I feel like it was the perfect 60 minute summary of the Sharks season. Start well, keep looking really promising for 20 minutes, look a tired in the second and shit the bed by the end of the third. YOU HAD A 2-0 LEAD SHARKS. YOU HAD ONE […]
