Let’s just say our beloved Sharks..were infact the Fog or the Waves..what would the logo look like? What would the colors be? Would anyone even want play or support a team called the Fog or Waves? But thankfully they are the Sharks. And we needn’t worry about such matters..until I bring up of course.
Have a great and safe weekend Sharks and Hockey fans. Go Fog! I mean Sharks!
