San Jose Sharknados?


Talk about jumping the shark.

After the low-budget horror movie "Sharknado" generated an intense internet storm Thursday night, ESPN tried to jump on the bandwagon for a few social media laughs.

Except the target of the joke decided to bite back.

In a tweet sent by the official account of the Worldwide Leader, the folks at ESPN offered this suggestion for San Jose's NHL club.

"Hey @SanJoseSharks, thoughts on changing your name to the San Jose #Sharknados?"

Apparently the suggestion wasn't as well received as the Syfy movie that wowed TV audiences (and the web) with the entertaining tale of a giant Pacific storm that sends thousands of flying sharks at L.A.

"Hey @espn, thoughts on showing more hockey highlights?"
