Sharks Gameday: 'Major Brad' by Stacers Schilling

New, 20 comments

The Sharks are playing the Colorado Avalanche, which means it is time to mourn some fallen Sharks

Love you, Gale

I would like to take a moment to remember a couple of fallen San Jose Sharks. They may be on the Colorado Avalanche now, but they will forever remain in our hearts.

The Sharks playing against Bradley Lewis Stuart and Jamie Lance McGinn tonight will be one of the most difficult things to ever happen to me. It's going to be an emotional evening especially since this is Brad Stuart's first game since he was traded away. In honor of this occasion, I have written a song to commemorate Stuart's time in San Jose. Play the video and sing along!



On the bench alone

Stuart is waiting

All pairs are go

"Can I play?"

The team is not convinced

But Todd McLellan

has the evidence

No need to defend

The ice time starts


Watching in a trance

The team is certain

Not a scoring chance

Nothing's working

Trying to skate fast

Up to the blueline

"Send me up some crack"

Jokes Major Brad

The deficit starts...


1, 2, 3, 4

Ice below him

Slipping, falling

Skating useless

Calling, calling Avs


Irwin's ice time cut

We're on the PK

Other team is up

Their powerplay's perfect

Bloggers to collect

possession data

"What's the score effect

who cares I'm done-"

Thinks Major Brad


Back at the bench

There is a problem

"Vlasic pair with Stuart"

Not responding

"Hello Major Brad

Are you still playing?

Try to join the rush

Stop standing by"

There's no reply


1, 2, 3, 4

Ice below him

Slipping, falling

Skating useless

Calling, calling Avs


Across the neutral zone

A final message:

"Let me retire here"

then nothing more


Far behind the play

Antti Niemi's mourning

He doesn't realize

Stuart's alive

No one understands

but Major Brad sees

"Now the league commands

Denver is my home

I'm coming home"


Ice below him

Slipping, falling

Skating useless

Calling, calling Sherman

Ice below him

Slipping, falling

Skating useless

Calling, calling

Avs

Avs



Gameday!

San Jose Sharks @ Colorado Avalanche

6pm PST

The Can

(people actually call it that [don't call it that])

Prediction:

Okay so that game against Anaheim was awesome, and not because of the win or its ridiculousness, but John Scott got suspended! Him being an idiot has improved our team. You know what team isn't improved?The Avalanche. Those poor fuckers. Sharks win 4-2, goals from Tommy Wingels, Matt Nieto (he's from Long Beach), Joe Pavelski, and Brent Burns (who would have already scored 15 goals if he was a forward).

Setting the Tone:

I think I already set the tone pretty damn well but here's one more for the hell of it
