The Sharks never disappoint when it comes to themed warm-up jerseys. That was especially true on Cinco de Mayo, when they sported their 'Los Tiburones' sweaters.
And they look amazing:
Seriously, I want to order all of the things. The colors alone are fantastic.
As is tradition, the team celebrated the holiday in perfect form with a special design by local artist Claudio Blanco.
Blanco wrote in a Twitter post that the design was inspired by the moment she discovered the Sharks in 1997. She dedicated the art to her grandfather, which is where some of the old-school vibes on the shark come from.
“This is where I referenced old traditional shark tattoos,” Blanco wrote on Twitter. “To represent my time in Mexico. I incorporated a traditional azulejo design that is found all throughout.”
The heart design surrounding the shark is a reference to “Los Milagritos” or “corazone de Hojalata,” which are heart-shaped figures that are made out of tin and used as offerings to ask for a miracle or to give thanks.
The Sharks will be auctioning off the jerseys with proceeds benefitting the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley located in San Jose.
If that doesn't work, the Sharks also have plenty of other swag with the logo on it, including shirts and drink koozies.
