Every February 2, the United States waits with bated breath as a groundhog's shadow will predict whether or not spring will come early.
However, being a California-based team, the difference between winter and spring is whether it will be 55F and sunny or 65F and sunny, so Groundhog Day isn't a huge thing. Unless you're talking about the classic Bill Murray movie, of course.
So in honor of Groundhog Day the movie, sjsharks.com has decided to list the top days this season we wouldn't mind living over and over again. One catch, though - no hockey stuff allowed. That'd be too easy.

Video: 2017 Sharks Tree-mendous Holiday Video
The annual Sharks holiday video was released, which extolled the virtues of teamwork and working together and to also not trust rookies with the navigation.
Actually, if there is a way to rewatch all of the Sharks Holiday Videos for the first time, that would be the best.

Who wouldn't want to relive the experience of being in Winnipeg on a beautiful winter's day?

Video: Hayden Skates Through Shark Head
The Sharks hosted Hayden Bradley as part of his Make-A-Wish wish, making him an honorary Shark. If this didn't make your heart melt, you don't have one. And an easy candidate to re-live.

SomeBODY once told us this was the day it was announced the Sharks are hosting the 2019 NHL All-Star Game. This kicked off a cycle of getting the hit song "All Star" by San Jose's own Smash Mouth stuck in our heads, which will definitely last until January 27, 2019.
