Why the Ottawa Senators are the ultimate sports franchise

    It’s time for a reality check on this starkinsider.com. Yes, yes, I know. San Jose gets over 300 days of sunshine a year. Funny that, eh. Every time I go it’s raining. Or foggy. Or if I’m stuck in San Francisco, both.

    Since you’re so busy, busy (busy!!) on the West Coast enjoying wine and lattes, I’d like to remind you that while San Jose has it all, it still lacks that most important of things…. A STANLEY CUP! Sharks, by the way, belong in the water, not on the ice. And they look better if they’re not wearing teal.

    Quick history lesson, eh:

    1. Ottawa Sens, Stanley Cup winners: 1919, 1920, 1922, 2926.

    2. Carrie Underwood: Marries a Sen. Not a Shark. She will be Carrie Fisher. The force is with us.

    3. Sens play in a bank. Sharks in a pavilion. Say no more.
