Happy Monday, Sharks fans! This weekend was packed with comedy, action, and competition at the 2018 All-Star Game. The San Jose Sharks sent Brent Burns and Sharkie to Tampa for the game, so let’s count down the best posts from this weekend.
#5: Meet Me in San Jose
In case you missed it, the NHL announced this weekend that San Jose will host next year’s All-Star Game. It looks like Tampa’s Thunder Bug has already passed the baton to our own Sharkie.
#4: Everybody Loves Sharkie
Brent Burns’ wife, Susan, took over the San Jose Sharks’ Instagram account for the All-Star weekend. Not only did she post fin-tastic photos of Burns on the ice, doing press junkets, and spending time with his kids, she and the kids also took time to hang out with Sharkie.
#3: Tale As Old As Time
Everyone loves a happy Wookie, especially when he’s our happy Wookie! (Is it a faux pas to mix pop culture references? Too late.)
#2: Beards Galore
Whoever decided to photoshop Burns’ beard onto his son is a genius. If there’s an All-Star tournament for photoshop skills, this person gets our vote.
#1: The Fin One
Our favorite mascot with The Great One? No contest, that’s number one in our book.
Bonus: A Very Sharkie Birthday
January 28th is Sharkie’s birthday and the Sharks had a great highlight reel ready to go of Sharkie’s first year in action. Spending the weekend in sunny Tampa with his mascot buddies was a great way to celebrate. Happy birthday, Sharkie!
