Welcome....Sharks fan here! Used to work for their AAA team in Lexington (moved away in 2001).
I'll be upfront....I despise the Fish. I think it goes back to when their minor league affiliate was the KC Blades who played in the IHL. Being a huge Blues fan, I followed the Peoria Rivermen closely. Of course, they were in the same division as KC, so they played each other several times per year at Kemper Arena. I went to every Rivermen/Blades game during my college days. Great fun.....saw Tony Twist, Pat Jablonski, Guy Hebert and others that eventually found a home with the Blues or elsewhere in the NHL during their early years.
Of course, there were always KC fans that adopted SJ as their NHL team and wore their jerseys to Blades games. I was always there in my Blues jerseys. Made for a great rivalry on the ice and in the stands.
