What do you do if the hockey bug has bit you so hard, 41 home games isn't enough?
Meet Paul and Shereen. Known by their hashtag #TealCoupleTravels on social media, they are a die-hard Sharks fan duo who recently completed their bucket list of visiting all 30 road cities in the NHL, cheering on the Sharks all the way.
"After a few years of being season ticket holders and not missing a single game, we always felt 41 games just weren't enough to cheer on the team," said Paul in an interview with sjsharks.com. "We decided to take a quick road trip to watch the Sharks take on both our SoCal rivals late in the 2012-2013 season and, despite going 0-2 on the trip, it sparked an idea. The following season the Sharks happened to be playing in Montreal and Ottawa on Shereen's birthday weekend, so we jumped on the opportunity to travel to Canada in October for hockey. We swept that trip and instantly started plotting our future endeavor.
"The rest is history."
Over the next five years, Paul and Shereen slowly ticked off each of the NHL's road cities, starting in Los Angeles in 2013 and finally finishing their very impressive bucket list on February 2, 2018 in Columbus. Their overall record - "the second most frequently asked question," according to Paul - was just over .500 at 15-13-2, but they enjoyed the experience no matter the outcome.
