We’ve all seen the popular “This is Sharks Territory” signs. So just where exactly do you suppose Sharks Territory is?

It used to be that you could draw a large circle on a map around HP Pavilion, toss in San Mateo and parts of Alameda county, and that was pretty much Sharks Territory. Not anymore.

As the race to the Stanley Cup Playoffs escalates NBC Sports Network and the NHL Network are picking up our Sharks telecasts and distributing them nationally. Combine this “wide” coverage with the ability to view games on the Internet and you get a whole different idea of where Sharks fans live.

Thursday night during the Sharks 6-1 win over Minnesota I got Twitter messages from viewers in Des Moines (Iowa), Prince Edward Island, Guadalajara (Mexico), Charleston (South Carolina), Fresno, Las Vegas, Lindsay (Texas), Bellingham (Washington), Omaha, Kamloops (British Columbia), Brazil, Montreal, Chico, Newfoundland, Finland and Bali!

As you can see, Sharks fans can literally be found all over the globe. It’s a blast to be connected to so many of you through our telecasts and the web. And the way the hockey team is playing at this important time of the season, life in Sharks Territory is pretty good.

I’m Randy Hahn
