San Jose Sharks right wing Devin Setoguchi attends Earthquakes MLS game

Two south bay sports behemoths collided Saturday as San Jose Sharks right wing Devin Setoguchi visited the 2-time MLS champion San Jose Earthquakes for a match against FC Dallas in Santa Clara. The Earthquakes (9-7-6) battled FC Dallas (10-2-11) to a 0-0 draw, and remain in the Western Conference playoff hunt with 8 games left in the 2010 season.

“It has been pretty good so far, they have been all over the place,” Setoguchi told CNSCA’s Dan Dibley during the first half. “Before this I have never watched a game, but it is fun to watch.” After attending one game earlier, his current record as a fan is 1-0-1. The southern Alberta native said his regime growing up with 6 months of snow mostly consisted of hockey, with a little bit of soccer thrown in during the summertime. As a restricted free agent, Setoguchi signed a 1-year, $1.8 million contract with the Sharks for 2010-11.

Scheduled to attend Sharks Night at Buck Shaw Stadium were Setoguchi, Jason Demers, Torrey Mitchell, Frazer McLaren and Jamie McGinn. The Sharks players were slated to meet the Quakes players prior to game time, and participate in halftime activites. The night also included a silent auction for Sharks memorabilia, and a visit by mascot SJ Sharkie. posted a game recap and photo gallery from Saturday night. The Quakes will have a short rest before they face the Philadelphia Union Wednesday at home (7PM). The game will be available on CSN via tape delay according to the Earthquakes.
