The San Jose Sharks and SVSE released their annual holiday video, this time with more polyester. Besweatered forwards Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton, Dany Heatley, Scott Nichol and Ryane Clowe sang selections from their non-existent holiday album including ‘The Chippy Song’ and ‘Douglas Murray is coming to town’. 6-foot-4 Joe Thornton and 5-foot-9 Scott Nichol combined on a duet of ‘Jolly Old St Nicholas’. The lone blueline representative, Dan Boyle, covered the popular ‘I saw Santa Kissing Randy Hahn’ with Slappy and earned a rebuke from Thornton.
“We haven’t been this excited or happy to see people singing in v-neck sweaters since Andy Williams sang all the hits every other commercial break,” exclaimed NBC Sports analyst Joe Yerdon. It could be the biggest holiday release since Muppet Christmas. Reports that DJ Steve Porter, coming off successful slap chop drop and HNIC Leafs-Habs remixes, will take a stab at the Sharks holiday album are unconfirmed.
