The San Jose Sharks had their 25th anniversary ‘Throwback Night’ Tuesday against the Columbus Blue Jackest, and while the 5-2 loss wasn’t the result the team was looking for, it’s hard to call the night itself anything but a success.
Not only did San Jose rock their beautiful old-school teal jerseys and not only did the Twitter account go all out with ridiculous graphics for both teams, but the Sharks showed off one of the most-1990s videos you'll see in your life.
Check out their in-arena pump-up video from the 1993 season:
That is something. We’re not sure which part we like best: the way the sharks take off out of the water and fly or the hilarious high-five between the two sharks at center ice. It’s a toss-up, really. And don't gloss over the fact that there are six sharks on the ice. C'mon, ref.
When it came to Tuesday’s pre-game video, the Sharks didn’t distance themselves from the ultra-‘90s video, either. They embraced everything that had to do with the club during the 1990s. Keep a close eye because on top of the Saved By The Bell backgrounds, there are a few Mike Ricci sightings in here:
Great work all around by the Sharks. We can’t wait to see what the club does when they hit their 30th anniversary.
