Field of Links: Nobody does holiday videos quite like the Sharks

Dec 17, 2013, 7:45 AM PST

Tis the season for corny holiday videos. Many teams do them each year, but not as well as the San Jose Sharks. The latest Sharks Sports and Entertainment Holiday Card is the gift that keeps on giving. No, seriously, it’s over six minutes long and features several extra clips like the one featuring Patrick Marleau and Brent Burns above.

Some of the other highlights include: Tomas Hertl eating cookies at the kid’s table, Antti Niemi thinking a cactus is mistletoe, and Dan Boyle’s horrific comedy routineBut where are Joe Thornton and his pal Slappy? They don’t appear in the video at all.


Field of Links:

Watch the Lakers fail miserably in their attempts to name all nine of Santa’s reindeer. I betcha’ the Sharks can name all of those reindeer. Just saying.

Terrelle Pryor is unsure if he’ll ever get another chance to start for the Oakland Raiders.

A recent study claims that Raiders fans are the most unstable in the NFL.

Vin Scully took over the Dodgers’ Twitter account with predictably awesome results. This man is a treasure.

New Giants left fielder Michael Morse spent some in the Comcast SportsNet studios.

— Jose Canseco wants to be the next Texas Longhorns football coach. Don’t worry. This happens every time a coaching job opens up, except, this time it’s football. Surprisingly, the switch in sports doesn’t make the idea any weirder.

— Rob Gronkowski is out for the season, but the man still has to eat. Here he is riding a scooter in Whole Foods. Those things always look like fun until you have to use one.

Congrats on getting engaged, 49ers long snapper Kevin McDermott.
