TRH GAMEDAY 47 – SAN JOSE SHARKS: #MetalliSharks

The LA Kings have one last test before heading into the All-Star break. And it’s no easy task as they face-off against arguably their biggest rival in the San Jose Sharks.

It’s actually a pretty big test for both teams as each has struggled throughout the first half of the season. Reality is that neither team is assured a spot in the playoffs, and it’s possible that one or even both could miss the postseason.

So both the Kings and the Sharks are no doubt taking this game very seriously.

And as fans of the respective teams, we should be doing the same…

Oh for the love of…

That’s right, the fine folks at the SAP Center will be treated to a special Metallica Night!

It’s a special evening where fans can briefly pretend their back in the 1980s, which isn’t much different than 2015 if you’re counting Stanley Cup banners.

#NeverForget

So how exactly are people prepping for arguably the biggest night in franchise history?

Intro Metallica Night

Wait, ONLY in the building?

Metallica Night in the Building

hahahahahahaha

That’s right, only two members of Metallica are actually showing up for this momentous occasion. And no, they will not even be performing.

But that, for some reason, doesn’t change how jacked up Sharks fans are getting for what’s likely the biggest event of the year in San Jose.

Yes. Yes, that is what’s important here.

Maybe just stop talking for a while, Logan.

Man, this night is going to be great.

Metallica and the Sharks, everyone!

I guess the Metallica and Sharks combination makes sense, though.

What better band to partner with than one that had strong start, fell apart when it looked like they could be an all-time great, and now just basically records the same song over and over again.
