Welcome to Playoff Mode
Do you remember the first time you saw a hockey game in person?
I remember like it was yesterday. In 1993 I was a relative newbie to Silicon Valley when a work colleague invited me to a Sharks vs. Detroit game. Detroit scored in the first 2 minutes of the game but the Sharks won 6-4 on the back of a three-point game from Sandis Ozolinsh. In a foreshadowing of the playoffs, Jamie Baker scored a pivotal goal as time ran out in the second period.
25 years after I went to my first game I joined the Sharks organization as co-President. I’m still a die-hard fan but now I’m in the building every night, not just on game days. It’s a completely different perspective on Team Teal – sort of like watching your favorite play from backstage – so I plan to use this blog to share my experiences with you.
