Wanted to share this hilarious gem from the brilliant satirists at the Onion: Blackhawks Attempt To Find Out Why Shark On San Jose Logo Is Eating Hockey Stick.

SAN JOSE, CA—Baffled members of the Chicago Blackhawks reportedly scrutinized San Jose's logo Tuesday in an attempt to determine some logical reason as to why it pictures a ferocious underwater predator eating a hockey stick. "Sharks are primarily carnivorous, so it really makes no sense for them to suddenly introduce wood to their diet," said center Jonathan Toews, wondering how a hockey stick would wind up in the ocean. "Isn't a mascot animal supposed to be in favor of hockey? Why then would he ruin a good stick by biting it in half? Also, not to get too nitpicky, but San Jose is inland, so they don't have sharks, unless the shark is bursting up through the rink, which is just unrealistic and stupid." The San Jose Sharks were reportedly just as confused by the Blackhawks logo, failing to understand what a somewhat racist representation of a Native American had to do with hockey.

Worst part about terrible logos is 1) Players have to wear them with pride 2) Someone is actually getting paid major bones to draw these things up

I think the Bruins could make a sweet logo with a ravage bear holding a hockey stick, but then you run into the problem of changing an O6 logo.

I've always liked the San Jose logo.

I guess in hindsight, they could just have a mean looking shark without a hockey stick, but they felt like throwing a hockey reference in there. NBA has a similar thing with basketballs being put into just about every logo.

Way better than the Hurricanes "rose" logo, or the Ducks "no logo".
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

RBK must send out bottles of scotch to owners, GMs, or anyone associated with giving the :thumbup: to a new logo/jersey design...Most of them are downright FUGLY, and ya gotta be drunk to think they look good.

If you need to put a hockey stick, basketball or baseball bat in the logo so people know what it is, you're doing it wrong.

I'll say this - whenever the Onion does a hockey article, they knock it out of the park (should I not have mixed sports there? :P).

And I've always liked San Jose's logo. *shrug*

Yeah that's pretty crappy.

You know, if Chicago wasn't an original 6 team, everyone would make fun of their logo too. ;)

No it is not. The San Jose logo is the most amateurish logo EVER. The only thing worse was the Ducks Disney movie logo, but at least they changed that...and San Jose Sharks never even had a movie, there logo just sucks lol
