Last night was one of the best games I've seen the Sharks play all year. It was also probably the best crowd I've been in this season. People cheered for their pizza (while I booed of course) but then moved on pretty quickly back to the game, we got several, multiple "Hey Dallas- YOU SUCK!" chants going in our section, and HP seemed to find it's "Let's Go Sharks!" rhythm instead of having 5 sections chanting 5 different parts. Got our first (and last) mystery pucks of the season, pulling Couture Eager Thornton Vlasic who dominated for a combined 3G-3A-6PTS between them. Niemi had his legs flexin and his arms T-Rexin like a mofo (I keep trying to get T-Rex chants going but I don't think anybody understands.)
And then of course there was Slappy, who went 5-0 this month in wins and had a freakin' blast yet again.
First we ran into Sharkie, who seemed a bit jealous of Slappy (mascot rivalry perhaps?) Anyway he did what a good Shark would do and promptly swallowed him.
Then he put a Sharks band-aid under his eye... and literally made him his Nelly.
Slappy got a little sloppy pre-game (gotta hold onto that beer buddy)
Then we ran into a....cool...Stars...fan....? No but seriously this guy was awesome, we booed him out in the smoking section and his response was "I'm sorry, I was born different!" then he joked about riding the short bus to school with Steve Ott and let us take a pic of Slappy cockin back his pimp hand for a mighty blow!
We even saw mssjclowie! (who's friend never sent me the pic he took, grr... though I probably look equally retarded)
And at the end of the day, it was safe to say: He came, He slapped, He conquered. Just like the Sharks.
Bring on the Playoffs, bring on the Stanley Cup Finals, and BRING IT HOME BOYS!
(This is Slappy's album, there are other Sharkie pics in there as well as Slappy gettin loved on by random Sharks fans and old Slappy pics. Kind of in reverse chronological order, but that's where I'll be adding new pictures if anybodies interested. Password is, of course, "slappy".)
