Joe Thornton

Well, I was SUPPOSED to sleep

I went to bed at midnight, ready to sleep a full 8 hours for the first time in... I don't really remember how long it's been, and ended up wide awake at 6AM. Damn it, I don't have anything to worry about for a few days! :P

Anyway, being a Sharks fan and having watched every Kings game since... late December or so, now that the series is over I could probably talk about it until I vomit (which I just might given how nauseous I get when I'm sleep-deprived).

As a kind of gross generalization, Sharks and Kings fans are generally pretty chill and knowledgeable. They are also united in their revulsion of Ducks fans (most of whom didn't exist before the season they won the Cup) who come across as slobbering idiots whose knowledge of hockey can be summed up as "that wasn't an elbowing penalty we're getting screwed"!.

This Twitter exchange between the Sharks and Kings mascots (seriously) exemplifies this:
BaileyLAKings: @sjsharkie good luck buddy..... If I can't have a cup I hope you do
BaileyLAKings: RT @sjsharkie: All class, unlike wildwing RT @BaileyLAKings: @sjsharkie good luck buddy..... If I can't have a cup I hope you do
BaileyLAKings: @sjsharkie I am an animal of my word. I hope you display my jersey proudly

I could keep going, but I think I've been writing this on and off all day, LOL. In summary, go Sharks!
