First San Jose Sharks Game
 
So, I went to my first Sharks game a week ago, against Nashville and I made a video recapping my night, so if you don't mind watching it....it'd be great! Thanks!

And while we're at it, I'm interested in knowing your experiences at your first Sharks game!

Has this been a topic of a thread already? If it is...then I'm sorry! :laugh:

My first Sharks game was at the old Cow Palace with my dad. Lost, as they normally did, to the Hawks. Horrible place to watch a game. Had a great time. :)

My first game was the first one at the Cow Palace. I still have my pin :D

I was also at the Nashville game from the OP. My friend fell down about 13 rows of stairs after a bit too much alcohol :laugh:

(he's ok, if anybody cares)

My first Sharks game was at the Cow Palace in the wood seats and I got yelled at for taking off my Starter jacket during play.:(

My first in person was the season opener of 99-00 season. It was a trip from my school (Univ of the Pacific in Stockton). Our seats were upper bowl, behind a net, Sharks beat the Flames, it was a GREAT time.

Never really thought about it until now, but in that 99-00 which popped my Sharks in person cherry, I went to the season opener, the season finale (the game they threw to get the 8 seed), and all of the home games vs. Blues in the playoffs (and Game 4 vs. Dallas).

Good times.

My first game was ironically against the Preds too a few years before the lockout...they won 5-2. I was at this Preds game as well...glad you had a blast, but be warned, it's nowhere near as a fast and fun when they're getting killed. Regardless, welcome to the crew.

As Mr. Plank from FTF says...God save us all. Go Sharks.

My first game was in 1-29-09 against Phoenix when Marcel Goc & Christan Ehrhoff scored both goals and what was so memorable was they were behind the glass seats and an usher gave me a game puck :)

Your a good stroy teller and very creative. Next Morgan Spurlock on our hands here. ;)

My first game was MLK day, 1994. Still have the ticket stubs. I was 8.

Sadly, I can't afford to go to San Jose for a game, and won't be able to any time soon. I saw the Sharks last year when they went to Buffalo and lost 6-3, and exactly a month ago today, here in Toronto during that dreadful road trip when they beat the Leafs 2-1. I had a freaking blast at that game. Glad to hear you had a great experience at your first game, welcome to the most pessimistic board of all time, the Sharks board. :)

Couldn't have asked for a more perfect first game.

I think nabby got the shutout in that one as well. Couldn't get much better.

February 12, 1992 at the Montreal Forum. Sharks lost 6-1. Don't remember too much about it since I was 10. Been to many more over the years in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Boston. Hoping to one day get out to HP!

My first game was during the Sharks 1st season. I was attending San Jose State and a friend of my girlfriend arranged a group outing to go to the game. There were about a dozen of us. The girls mostly just talked throughout the entire game and didn't pay much attention. I remember wondering why they even wanted to go to the game. I tuned them out as much as possible, enjoyed the game, and started becoming a Sharks fan.

My first Sharks game was this seasons 0-1 loss to the Sabres. Went with my girlfriend, a Sabres fan, and a couple newbies. It was an overall good experience minus the lack of scoring atmosphere. Didn't impress my girlfriend that much but I'm hoping we'll get to some games next season. It was just a really unlucky first game to go to.

My first game my dad had won club level seats at work. Got there super early so I could watch the warmups. Next thing I know I hear a *PING* and look to see that Ricci had rifled one off the corner of the crossbar. I stood there mouth open in awe as a puck comes sailing towards me (pre-safety net days, obviously). And have to hit the floor to not get it by it. Got the puck and a special case for it, but never got a chance to get him to sign it. Still memorable though.

Cow palace against the glass vs. the flames...don't remember who won.

Iron Chef 03-23-2012 02:29 PM

My first Sharks game was back in 93-94 season. We played an exhibition game against Team USA and actually won haha. I was 10 years old at the time. My teacher was a huge hockey nut and setup after school foot hockey games on the blacktop. From then on, I was hooked on the game. It also helped that my dad's company had season tickets and would give them to us for free.

I still remember the first playoff series. That moment when Jamie Baker scored that goal, my dad and I leapt into each others arms and went nuts.

ArcataShark 03-23-2012 02:43 PM

Lol, cow palace with my pops too. We lost but it was an exciting time.
