"Familiarity breeds contempt", is the moral of an Aesops fable. "The Fox and the Lion".

It is story of a fox was terribly afraid. Then the more the fox crossed paths with the lion the less frightened he felt until eventually the fox came face to face with the lion and turned his tail to the beast and walked off without much ceremony.

The moral of that story is never more true when you are around a sports team for an entire season, in this case the San Jose Sharks.

I'm around the team more than I'm with my family. At practice, on the plane, in the hotel and of course watching and analyzing the games, I have over time become indifferent of the team.

Before you start to think this blog is a negative indictment of the team read on.

Although the team has had some tough breaks recently we haven't given up on the playoffs. We still have a chance to put together some wins at the end of the season and squeak into the playoffs - anything can happen.

The team's spirits are still high and we have many new faces that have joined the team. These players have fit right into the dressing room and have brought some extra energy to the team.

Our team will push hard to squeak into the playoffs, but if not, the future looks bright for the team.

This season, I've learned a lot and have improved over the year and hope to finish strong.

  I must be crazy. Did I just ask Owen Nolan to fight? Surely an average hockey fan would need to be slightly askew to instigate a fight, or even a ferocious round of rock-paper-scissors, with a 5-time NHL All-Star and former Sharks captain.

Though Big Owen cracked a smile, simply said “nah” and skated away, I knew I had done the right thing. After all, the answer is always “no” until you ask. Despite being denied my theatrical donnybrook, it was the only moment all day that a member of San Jose Sharks organization said “no” to me. I was not caught in a dream, but as a fortunate participant in the 2013 “Shark for a Day” Fantasy Camp, I WAS living a fantasy.

So there you have it. It’s the end of a seven game win streak, a terrific if not perfect home stand and the start of another huge road trip for the Sharks. And what an important 8 game stretch it was. On March 23rd the Sharks lost 2-0 in Minnesota and were a tired hockey team having played 14 of their prior 19 games on the road. It was an exhausting grind that had them in 9th place in the West at 13-11-6 record and 32 points. But two nights later in Anaheim they beat the Ducks 5-3 and it would be the start of a profound turnaround to their season.

Fast forward to this morning as they boarded their charter flight for Columbus and the Sharks are now 20-11-7 with 47 points and they are 5th in the West, only a point behind 4th placed Los Angeles but more importantly 7 points clear of the dreaded 9th spot. Not a bad little run of 7 straight wins and 8 straights games with at least a point.
