The San Jose Sharks lost the game and a key player on Thursday night. During the 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings, rookie sensation Tomas Hertl injured his knee when he collided with Dustin Brown, who has a history of similarly questionable hits.
Sharks coach Todd McLellan chose not to say if he thought the hit could be avoided. Dirty? You be the judge.
— The Golden State Warriors suffered an “inexcusable” loss at home against a San Antonio Spurs team that was playing without their three best players. Warriors Insider Monte Poole captured some very frustrated comments from Dubs players.
“There’s no way to excuse this loss,” said center Andrew Bogut. “You can’t lose this game at home.”
— Jim Harbaugh absolutely wants to stay with the San Francisco 49ers, writes Matt Maiocco. In response to his name being brought up in rumors regarding the University of Texas vacancy at head coach, Harbaugh would like to raise an objection.
“In Judge Judy’s court, hearsay is not admissible evidence,” Harbaugh said. “I think we can all agree that an unnamed source is hearsay.”
— If you’ve ever wanted to pretend to be a stadium-eating giant, head on over to Waterbar in San Francisco. After stomping into the door and letting out a Godzilla-quality shriek, you can try to take a bite out of a gingerbread Candlestick Park. Waterbar pastry chef Angela Salvatore created an amazing replica of the ‘Stick using nothing but sweets. “Candystick Park” stands one foot tall and is two feet wide and three feet long. Check out this photo from SFGate.com.
And now it’s time to feast your eyes on some equally sweet links.
