Sharks on a plane. Another touchdown!

This is my best six word memoir with photo ever! So clever! So creative. Shall I explain it?

Ok. The Sharks on a plane part is a joke from the movie, Snakes on a Plane with Samuel L. The pic is from a tweet by @SanJoseSharks. It is the San Jose Sharks flying down to Los Angeles to play Game 3 of the first round of playoffs. Sharks on a Plane is funny enough, but I needed two more words...

At the last Sharks/Kings game on Easter Sunday, the Sharks came back from being 0-2 to make 7 goals in a row, to win 7-2! On Twitter, there were tweets saying it was a touchdown! You know, like in football, including the extra point. 7 points for a touch down.

And a plane touches down as it lands. And I hope we play really, really well in L.A. AND get another touch down (7 points).

Whew! See what I mean?? Too clever.

OK. Well, maybe you had to be there....

#BeatLA. Just please. #BeatLA.
