Petshark: Talking Stick

Tonight the Sharks play the Florida Panthers. This is not an opponent they see often, and not one that has been noticed much by anyone, in a long time, until recently.
What’s funny about the Panthers’ goal sound, you know that growl or scream or whatever, is that panthers don’t make any sound unless they want to warn you away. So that sound isn’t really very scary. What’s scary is when you don’t hear anything at all, unless it’s a rustling in the leaves over your head before the panther drops out of the tree. What is scary about a panther is that you don’t hear him. This could very well be the strategy that the Florida Panthers have been using to spread their strain of cat scratch fever through the NHL.
Several have lots of hair. Not flowing locks, but certainly thick manes covering their necks. Hold on, panthers don’t have manes, they’re supposed to be sleek. Oh well, the Panthers are defying a lot of expectations lately. Who are these guys? Many names you know but not familiar together. It’s like watching an episode of The Love Boat: you know the faces but the costume is all wrong.
