Can you imagine if the San Jose Sharks get swept in the finals by the Pittsburgh Penguins? The Sharks, a team that has suffered unbelievable losses year after year have finally broken through. This has to be their year, Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau aren't getting any younger. They have been this close to reaching the Stanley Cup Final so many times, only to see it slip away. Now, they have finally made it. The San Jose Sharks have officially arrived and they are quickly down 0-2 to the Penguins.
Imagine if they don't win a game. How horrific would it be if they lost tonight? The 12 San Jose Shark fans will be mortified and the 20,000 people that became fans of the team a week ago will be slightly disappointed for a couple of minutes. I don't want to see it happen. I want the Sharks to win because besides the Montreal Canadiens, the Pittsburgh Penguins are the most hatable franchise in the NHL. Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau deserve at least one cup right? Is this world so cruel that the Sharks just may get swept in the Stanley Cup Final? If the Sharks lose tonight, it absolutely will happen. Biggest game of your life, Jumbo Joe. Show up and sweet Jesus do not let Phil Kessell win a cup.
