just not with us.
Hop over and you'll see the Sharks are in the dark as far as this project is concerned. With all those that comment here, there must be someone or someones that have time to help out. Since I would never ask another what I'm not willing to do myself, yes, I plan on volunteering myself. All you need is Game Center or Center Ice with DVR. So come on everyone, let's not leave the Sharks the last man (or team) standing.
The first commercial for the Sharks 2011-2012 season is out, featuring Logan Couture as a pizza delivery boy. The commercial follows the same format as the previous two years, with a Sharks player performing poorly at a job until "But he's a great hockey player" follows the scene. The Sharks generally release around four commercials per year, each featuring a different player. Joe Thornton as a ventriloquist, which introduced Slappy to the world, is considered to be the best commercial in the run. Although these commercials were a huge hit when they were were first released and possessed some of the most creative marketing in the NHL, the theme is beginning to get a little stale as the years go along. We'll see what else they come up with throughout the year. Nonetheless, it is always nice to see these commercials being released as it signifies the beginning of a new season. The San Jose Sharks open the year at home against the Phoenix Coyotes on October 8th.
What a bust.
Defending Big D has been doing Pacific Division preview articles this summer, and I was asked to help out with a piece on the Sharks. It won't have anything earth-shattering for readers who stay plugged in all summer, but if you want a nice summary of everything that transpired in June, July, and August make sure to give it a read. Have a great Labor Day everyone.

This is always such a happy time. Hockey is so close!
Brodie tweeted it as 3, but the CSN article by Ratto says two, so we'll see tomorrow, I guess.
The parent company of the Sharks (but not their owners - see here for clarification) has renamed themselves after the team. The operator of the Sharks' business and manager of HP Pavilion is now Sharks Sports and Entertainment, effective today.
