Shark Life: A Night of #BayAreaUnite

by Ann Frazier /

We don't just play for San Jose, we play for the Bay. 

It's part of the idea behind #BayAreaUnite: the Bay's teams support the other teams in the area. And with that, it's not uncommon to see athletes show up at games for other teams. 

On Wednesday, Bay Area Unite went on overdrive for the Sharks, as you could spot hockey players at two different games in the Bay Area. 

The night started off in San Francisco, where a group of players (and coaches and broadcasters) attended San Jose Sharks Night at the Giants game.

As it was Sharks Night, Evander Kane took part in some on-field ceremonies, including presenting Giants manager Bruce Bochy a team-signed jersey in honor of his upcoming retirement and throwing out the first pitch


Tweet from @SanJoseSharks: Nice.

Tweet from @evanderkane_9: Always wanted to throw the first pitch. Thanks to the @SFGiants for having me, that was fun. #BayAreaUnite

A few dozen miles south, Timo Meier was at the San Jose Earthquakes game to help show support for their big game.

Meier even took part in the Earthquake's game tradition of a first kick - and went bar-down, of course. Some habits never die. 

Tweet from @SanJoseSharks: .@MeierTimo picked the corner! Looked kinda familiar... 🤔@SJEarthquakes | #BayAreaUnite

All in all, the last Wednesday night before hockey season was a great night of sports - though we can't lie, it'll be nice to get back on the ice.
