Even if you knew the way to San Jose, why would you go there right now?
The Sharks are miserable. They can’t score. They’ve been shutout in three of their last four games.
The fans have already given up: Just look how few showed up for Thursday’s 10-1 thumping by the Vancouver Canucks.
Whatever the official attendance was, it’s hard to think it wasn’t much less than 10,000.
Things are grim.
Even their social media manager is morose.
When your team is this bad, there’s so little to say.
The team tweeted pre-game about it being head coach David Quinn’s 300th in the NHL.
The only in game tweets offered were a pair of simple end-of-period updates.
There just wasn’t anything else to report.
Sarcasm is all they have left:
The Sharks are winless in their first 10 games on the year.
And there’s a flicker of hope in the next two games — the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers are next up, both struggling but not like the Sharks are. But then it’s the Edmonton Oilers, who may be off to an awful start but at least they can score, followed by the Vegas Golden Knights, who are much, much better than the Sharks.
Is Anaheim on Sunday, Nov. 12, their real target of opportunity?
Or will they see one of their opponents somehow trip and fall before then?
Will there be anyone in attendance to witness any of this?
Will there be anyone left tweeting?
