"Can a building vibrate right off its foundation? Shake loose from its moorings from pure excitement?
HP Pavilion nearly did Tuesday night. In the first Game 7 ever played in San Jose, the building was a quaking, jangling bundle of nerves and emotion. By the end, it was rocking in an explosion of joy,"
-Ann Killion, San Jose Mercury News
"...our beloved Los Tiburones gave their howling home horde the best offensive period in HP Pavilion playoff history."
-Mark Purdy, San Jose Mercury News
"...an arena fan base that makes every game sound like U2's opening night in Dublin."
-John Buccigross, ESPN.comAnd yes, even the AP:
"Evgeni Nabokov made 19 saves for second-seeded San Jose in front of a deafening crowd at the first Game 7 in Shark Tank history."
-Greg Beacham, AP Sports
I love watching the San Jose Sharks because I can lose my mind and scream my lungs out with 17,456 of my best friends. Last night was the most fun I've ever had at a Sharks game, and I suspect that might be the case for a few of you Bucketheads.
