I'm sure you all saw it. After Cheechoo's goal, someone tossed a dead shark onto the ice in the shark tank.


What were your reactions? It seemed a little silly/ironic to toss a dead symbol of your team on the ice...dont ya' think? I guess they dont know the history behind the octopus.

Seeing how the game turned out, i doubt we will see that one again. If anyone has any pics - post them, i'd like to see a close up of that thing.

Good call. Pretty ridiculous, if you ask me, and I like the Sharks.

Not to derail, but MAN was it great to see Homer back! Hope he's okay...

I saw a quick glimps of it, but I thought it was a stuffed animal, not the real thing. To the Shark fan who threw that: unsure.gif

fix'd
But seriously, if it was a wings fan It would've been GREAT if someone tied a noose to its neck, or a fishing line in its mouth or something.

HAH!! That would be great! Someone who is going to game 5 should do that after we score, that'd be freakin' sweet!

You know what this means Wings fans..............................MORE OCTOPI!

Last home game there were like 3 which was awsome but can you imagine if there were like 5-7 of them, that would be awsome. Go Octopi

dude...we've been asking the same of you guys for YEARS.

I'd rather stick a dead Shark down my pants than an octopus any day.

Nah, an octopus is just a little slimey. Anyone ever pet a shark the wrong way? Skin is worse than sandpaper. I'd much rather walk around with the octopus stuck down the leg of my pants then have a shark scraping away my skin as I walk around. Would get painful fairly quick I would think.

Either way it's pretty dumb that they copy our tradition.
