This week is a hot one. Like seven inches from the midday sun.
Santana lyrics aside, it has been an abnormally hot week in California. Temperatures should not exceed Joe Thornton's 2005-06 Art Ross-winning point total, but then Death Valley had to go and blow past it (130F, or 54.4C for our Canadian readers).
While San Jose and the Bay Area isn't on the level of Death Valley (or our Pacific Division rivals in Arizona or Nevada) yet, we understand that everyone is missing our normal perfect California coastal weather. So we wanted to be helpful and give some suggestions on how to cool down.
7. Put your house in #StealthMode
Shut your curtains and blinds and live in the dark.
6. Shoot the puck over the center red line and the opposing team's red goal line without the other team touching the puck
Yes, this is an icing joke.
5. Stay inside
Probably should have already been doing this to stop the spread of COVID-19, so now you have two reasons!
4. Watch the Sharks penalty kill
It sure seemed to cool down all the NHL teams' power plays this season, with a league-leading 85.7% kill rate.
3. Stand in the middle of a giant sheet of ice
...This option may not be available for everyone.
2. Spray yourself with water
Take a page from Burns's book.
And if all else fails...
1. Lie on your floor and try not to move
Stay cool, Sharks Territory.
