Sharks: Captain’s Practice Etc

(Originally posted on Kukla’s Korner)

I took a little tour of South Bay ice rinks this morning… afternoon.  Despite being on the wrong side of the Bay for convenience, both destinations provided what I was looking for.  A tour was not what I had planned, it just worked out that way and it’s how I trick myself into driving all over hell and gone.

The skate was a little late getting started at Sharks Ice, which gave me time to wonder if, after many trips to this rink, I was actually wrong about where the unofficial not mandatory and coachless practice-like activity would be taking place.  I had the trusty tweet from David Pollak telling me south rink but the rinks are not labelled.

Sharks: Burns Likes Us, He Really Likes Us

I know I said I would focus on the Flyers here but the Flyers aren’t doing anything and the Sharks are.  So here’s my post from Kukla’s Korner this morning:

Burns signed a 5 year extension with the San Jose Sharks.  Wow. I want to say that’s very Pisces of him, a “just do it” attitude like that.  Alrighty then.  (I just knew that if I started this morning’s blog entry out with “Sharks haven’t made any big announcements,” they would do something.  Yeah, I meant to do that.)  (more…)
