A Teal Reveal

It's 8/28 and since those are the jersey numbers of my two favorite Sharks players, I thought it was only appropriate that I share some exciting news with you today... 

There are only 41 days until the San Jose Sharks first game of the 2022-2023 NHL season... their season opener against the Nashville Predators over in Czechia... 

And there are only 48 more days until Eliot and I get to see them in person at their first game back stateside, their home opener in San Jose against the Carolina Hurricanes!!!

Yes, that's right!  Eliot and I are going to the San Jose Sharks home opener this fall and I'm really excited.  I've never been to the first game of the season, and I never thought I'd be able to.  Eliot's probably been to a ton of them back when he was a kid, but this will be my first and I'm super pumped about it!

Plus, this is also that game where Brent Burns comes back to the Tank.  It will be bittersweet to see him out on Sharks ice wearing red, but I'm glad that Eliot and I will be able to give him a proper send off, along with the rest of Sharks Territory.

If that wasn't awesome enough, we are also going to the Sharks game the following night.  That evening, they'll be having a recognition of Doug Wilson- the Sharks former General Manager who stepped down back in April.

These are the only back-to-back home games of the Sharks' entire season, so it's the weekend that made the most sense to fly out to California.  We were hesitant about it at first, but once we cancelled our anniversary trip, it made more sense since Eliot wasn't taking as much time off in September.  (Another silver lining.)

There is one other weekend home game that Eliot and I are planning to go out for if we're able to.  They're having a retirement ceremony for Patrick Marleau in February and we're trying to get out to San Jose that weekend as well.  Hopefully, everything works out!  Eliot and I would both love to be there when they retire #12!!!

We've still got a ways to go before hockey season starts, but things are moving in that direction.  Training camps are starting.  The guys are conditioning.  Pre-Season games will be starting later in September.  And Eliot and I have a few games at the Shark Tank to look forward to!  Time to break out my nail decals for their home opener debut... °o°
