The Daily Chomp

The San Jose Sharks outstanding Media Relations Department is required to prepare game notes before every Sharks home contest. The print and electronic media covering the game that night use this packet of statistics and player biographies to enhance their articles or their broadcasts.

As a rule the game notes are pretty much run of the mill. But that’s not the case with the Sharks game notes. They include a little something called “Fin Facts”. Fin Facts are the things you just didn’t know about the Sharks players and probably can’t find anywhere else. Here are my favorite Fin Facts from the current notes.

Thomas Greiss “An avid cyclist, he went of a mountain biking tour through Germany last summer.”

Antti Niemi “Believes he looks like Matt Damon.”

Jason Demers “Would be Schmidt from the TV show “New Girl” if he could be any character on TV”

Joe Pavelski “Grows a red beard even though he has brown hair.”

Martin Havlat “Thoroughly enjoyed Maroon 5’s song Payphone when it came out last summer.”

Patrick Marleau “His favorite Avenger is Iron Man, but he does not own an Iron Man suit. He also has an immense respect for The Hulk.”

Joe Thornton “Recently did an interview with Shuli Egar from The Howard Stern Show and called it “the pinnacle of my interview career.”

TJ Galiardi “His mother’s side of the family owns a candy factory.”

Dan Boyle “A proud member of Team Coco, he is an ardent supporter of the Conan O’Brien Show and dreams to one day be a guest.”

Scott Hannan “Currently driving a powder blue car. Rumor has it that it sports a fin on the back.”

Logan Couture “Dreams of being able to rap like Drake.”

Marc-Edouard Vlasic “He can name all of the exits on I-80 in Nevada due to his several car rides across the country.”

Matt Irwin “His hidden talent is that he can speak French, which is no longer hidden now.”

Justin Braun “Is in no way related to Scooter Braun, who is Justin Bieber’s manager.”

Brent Burns “His dream is to have a jam session with rock icon John Mayer.”

BONUS FIN FACT ALERT!

Randy Hahn “When he was 14 he worked at a carnival in his native Edmonton where he was a ticket taker at the World Smallest Horse attraction.”
