Quick Note: hockey returning to the Cow Palace?

I can’t tell whether I’m grinning because hockey is coming back to the Cow Palace or because the ECHL team is named the Bulls.  Either way, it’s something to smile about:

@PollakOnSharks: ECHL says the Cow Palace will be home to one of its teams in 2012-13.  A warm Bay Area welcome, please, for your San Francisco Bulls.

@PollakOnSharks:... Official SF Bulls announcement confirmed, second source on the record.

Still smiling…

When I first moved to San Francisco from Northern Michigan I saw Spiders ice hockey at the cow palace. Now they pretty much have weed expos and gun and knife shows.

I used to ride in the horse show part of the Grand National there.  So it all makes sense to me: cowboys, hockey players, it’s all good;)

The Cow Palace a classic old barn. What better place for some Bulls!

You’ll probably be in the following setup with the following teams:

Mountain Division
Alaska Aces
Utah Grizzlies
Colorado Eagles
Idaho Steelheads
San Francisco Bulls

Pacific Division
Las Vegas Wranglers
Stockton Thunder
Ontario Reign
Bakersfield Condors

If so, have fun with the Grizzlies.  That team is like a bunch of Matt Cookes, Steve Otts, and Darcy Tuckers.

About Petshark: Talking Stick

Native of Northern California.  Hockey fan since 1998... sort of... there's a hiatus in there that I still can't explain.

I want to know about anything and everything related to the sport and the spectacle.  I watch, I react, I write it down.

My interest in the Sharks was initially a matter of geographic convenience and regional loyalty because that seemed to be how it worked.  I had no prior interest (at all-- AT ALL) in professional sports of any kind.  When I met hockey, it might have set off a chain reaction of general sports fandom.  It hasn't, I don't think it will.  At all.

Since then, that interest developed into full blown (mostly sort of usually almost completely) exclusive loyalty to the Sharks.

I started blogging a couple years ago on wordpress. I still occasionally put things there that I don't think fit here because they are not about the Sharks. Wherever my words wander, here on Kuklas Korner, they will (usually) hang on to a teal thread.

I can be found in cyberspace on Twitter @petshark47, or emailed at talkingstick@petshark.net
