San Jose loves our Sharks. Some fans take that love to a whole other level. Meet Paul. Here I am with him on the night our Sharks were eliminated from the playoffs. By early evening it was game over, season over for the Sharks. Yet, Paul still wore his Sharks gear out to see the Y&T concert, which I was hosting at the Little Fox Theater in Redwood City.
Not only that, he wore his new Sharks tattoo (which he’d just gotten that day–a day when he knew the injury-ridden Sharks could very well be eliminated). He waited in a long line for one of the free tattoos the Sharks were providing for hardcore fans. It’s his first tattoo ever.
But it’s not the tattoo or the shirt that make Paul a hardcore Sharks fan. It’s the combination of his 25 years + of ENJOYING the Sharks that does, as evidenced by the joy and energy he gets from the team, EVEN when they’ve JUST been eliminated.
Remember–October’s just a summer away.
