My first ever Sharks game was in the 95-96 season against the Capitals. They won 5-3 with 3 points a piece from Nolan and Friesen. Chris Terreri started for the Sharks. I think I was 8 at the time. I had never even heard of hockey and was blown away.

That started a huge phase in my life where I played roller hockey, collected tons of hockey cards (my favorite ever hockey card was of Irbe coming out of the Sharks head...I sat on it by accident and cried for like 2 days straight) and getting NHL 96 for the PC. I couldn't do my math homework but I could tell you the name and numbers of every player in the league at the time

Fun fact: After the Avs won the cup that year, I became an Avalanche fan for a bit and got an Avs jersey for my next B-day. Blasphemy, I know. I think around '99 is when I became a die-hard Sharks fan and got my first jersey.
