The San Jose Sharks have had a pretty good start to the season so far... and I don't just mean on the ice. Yes, the team is right in the mix for both a division title and maybe even Western Conference title, but it's the team's official twitter profile that is the clear-cut favorite to win King of the Sports Team Twitterers (that's a thing, because I say so). For fans of the Sharks, they are a must-follow, especially if you are a fan of pop culture references. Here are few of my favorites from this season so far:
Good luck not watching this about 20 consecutive times. Oh, and you may want to turn down the volume.
Use George Constanza in a tweet, you have won my attention. Use George Constanza freaking out, you have won my heart.
Tiger/Goat Role Reversal
Amur, a Siberian tiger (the world’s largest species of cat) who lives in a Safari Park in Moscow is treated to a meal of live-prey twice a week. Unfortunately for Amur, last week’s prey decided he was not going to be eaten. When Timur the goat was placed in Amur’s enclosure he proceeded to literally chase Amur out of his sleeping shelter. Since then, Timur has been sleeping in Amur’s shelter, while Amur has been sleeping on the snow covered roof to avoid confrontation with the intimidating goat.
One shift. One period. One game.
It’s a slogan the New York Rangers have unofficially adopted in their modern era of excellence, exemplifying the importance of each facet of the game while dominating the Metropolitan division. With the Blueshirts red hot right out of the gate again this season, here’s a few reasons why the club is the Big Apple’s best team.
The Rangers are the priciest team to watch in the New York Metro Area - It’s not often that a major city’s hockey team is the most expensive team in town, but the Rangers are proving that skates are more lucrative than sneakers at Madison Square Garden.
According to TicketNetwork New York Rangers tickets on the secondary market have sold for an average price of $160.05. That’s 92% more expensive than the crosstown Islanders, who own a $82.97 ticket average this season.
Prices are so high for Rangers games that the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets can’t even hold a candle to them. Knicks tickets at MSG have sold for an average price of $149.75 this season – 6.4% cheaper than the Rangers. The Nets? 43% cheaper at $91.26 for games at Barclays Center for the 2015/2016 NBA season.
