An original Sharks fan, from before they were a team. Carried the first Sharks poster at an NHL exhibition game, between periods, North Stars vs Penguins, in the Bay Area. Were given tickets to the Islanders vs Penguins game after returning to our seats. Carried better "Let's Go Sharks" and "Bring On The Sharks" posters at that second game. I wonder if there are any videos.
I'll post a photo of the 1st poster/sign if I can find it. I know it's here somewhere as I came across it while sorting recently.
(Update: The poster has been found and posted on Fear The Fin as a FanShot on 2011-04-14.)
The only other games I was able to attend were an AHL game in Norfolk in the late 1990's between Norfolk and Richmond, and an WHL game in Seattle in the mid 1990's between the Thunderbirds and Moose Jaw Warriors. Patrick Marleau was with the Thunderbirds at the time.
I admit I really didn't follow the Sharks very closely in the early years, usually because I didn't have a TV then. Best I could do was read the recaps and watch the standings in the newspaper.
Started following them a bit closer, as the internet grew.
Go Sharks!

I'm also an original OAKLAND A's fan. Reason that "Oakland" is in caps is because I've been a fan since the A's moved to Oakland, the same year our family moved to California. I was so young, that the A's are the only team I knew of, and thus became a fan. My Dad was a, cough cough, lifetime Cubs fan.

My username comes from my music background, as when one is singing alone, on a stage, without a band, a solo act.

And, finally, I'm just a disabled Veteran from the Persian Gulf era, with some time to spare, and hopefully share what little insight I might have with fellow Sharks fans.
