Train 2 the Tank: West Coast Meet Up for Game 2: Wings @ Sharks, May 2nd. All aboard!

04/29/2010 at 4:53pm EDT

Well, it’s not Herm to Hockeytown, but it might be the second best chance for those of us who live on the west coast to get together, put some faces to the names, and watch the Wings and Sharks pitched in battle towards the cup.

The wife and I will be watching game 2 this Sunday from the 6th row of the visitor’s corner. I’ve found club level is the only way to avoid the more troglodyte-like sharks fans. Here’s the rub - I’ve got one extra ticket for anyone who wants to come along, throw me the loot and it’s yours.

Beyond that, I wanted to take this opportunity to gather anyone else who’s a KK reader and a west coaster just crazy enough to head all the way out to San Jose to watch the game, and congregate somewhere in San Jose beforehand for drinks, food, and good-natured trash talking.

Who knows how long it’ll be before the Wings and the Sharks face off in the playoffs again. I still wistfully remember the two-fingered salute the wife gave the crowd when Schneider scored the OT winner a few years back. At least I think it was Schneider. I was pretty hammered. Good times. Memories in the making. C’mon, you know you want to go.

Folks interested in coming post below; I’ll be taking the stress train down from San Francisco, beers on board, and have no idea where a good place to meet up beforehand is. Anyone know of a good bar near the tank? Maybe we meet up in SF first and train down as a posse.

If anyone wants that spare ticket, or wants to help organize a meet-up, email me at hippydave @ gmail.com. Please preface the subject with TRAIN2TANK so I can pick it out from all the other spam.

Let’s do this thing!
