The San Jose Sharks aren’t afraid to laugh at themselves.
They had a commanding 4-1 lead in the third period against an inferior Buffalo Sabres team Tuesday night and they couldn’t hold it. The Sharks wound up losing 5-4 in overtime, and as many NHL teams do, they found a way to make everyone laugh on Twitter.
How? A Super Bowl LI joke.
Of course, the Sharks are referring to the 28-3 lead the Atlanta Falcons blew in their Super Bowl LI loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday. The Pats scored 31 unanswered points to win 34-28 in overtime for their fifth Lombardi Trophy.
Just like the Golden State Warriors and their 3-1 series lead jokes, the Falcons are going to be the brunt of these jokes for a long, long time.
