Petshark: Talking Stick
Entries with the tag: faith
Here’s another interesting word: doubt. Nowadays it means “I don’t think it will happen but I’m not sure.” It used to mean “I think it will happen but I’m not sure.” It’s a subtle difference but it’s noteworthy.
Tickets for the Sharks’ first round of the playoffs go on sale tomorrow morning, though the dates of those games have yet to be announced. I guess everyone has a general idea, give or take a day. The tickets will be on sale Saturday at 10:00 am, online at Ticketmaster (Game A, Game B) or from the HP ticket office using a wristband procedure detailed here.
I wouldn’t say I doubted that the Sharks would make it into the playoffs (by either definition) but I certainly didn’t have faith that they would. I can’t say what the Sharks’ frame of mind was, surely they must have had some faith. But prior to the game, the Sharks were certainly not expecting any help from outside sources:
“Everyone wants to know” what is up with the San Jose Sharks. They signed a new player! Oh, people don’t mean the Stalberg signing? Okay then.
“Everyone wants to know” might be putting it too strongly, but anyone who’s anyone has noticed that the Sharks are playing way way WAY below expectations.
The players reassure us that they are engaging in the recommended amount of yelling during and after a game, even if they seem calm in front of the cameras. That’s good to know. Maybe someone should set up a noise meter in the room just to be sure.
