Petshark: Talking Stick
Entries with the tag: hockey fans
The Sharks’ audience didn’t leave early in such great numbers last night, not the way they did as Game 3 stumbled to the finish. Sure, the Sharks were only down by one goal for most of the game, they were never down by three. Still, I like to think people stayed because that was very likely the last game they would see this season. It hasn’t gone on long enough to feel like a real second season.
So we stayed and we gave a cheer full of gusto for Thornton’s last-minute goal. As the noise died down, I got that feeling best described by a Peggy Lee song I first heard in the movie After Hours. It is depressing, maudlin even. I don’t recommend it for play during a hockey game, or after one for that matter. But I remember the movie being hilarious.
