The San Jose Sharks are currently one of the best teams in the NHL, which is the main reason they have such a strong following in the Bay area.
Another reason is because they also have one of the best broadcast teams in the league.
Randy Hahn has been a Sharks' play-by-play broadcaster since their inaugural season in 1991, and is now in his 16th season as the sole play-by-play man on the TV side.
His partner, Drew Remenda, has been by his side since 1999. Remenda, a former Sharks assistant coach during the early 90s became the Sharks' color analyst for radio during the mid-90's alongside their great radio play-by-play man, Dan Rusanowsky.
From 1999-2006, the famous pair of Randy and Drew won three Northern California Emmy Awards, one in 1999, 2002 and 2005.
After the 05-06 season, Remenda left for a job with CBC's hockey night in Canada, and the departure was tough for San Jose fans.
But they needed to stop worrying, as their broadcaster would return to his old job after only one season away from his buddy Randy.
The duo has been back together calling Sharks games for a season and a half now, and Sharks fans could not be more entertained while watching their team play.
Not only do the Sharks announcers do a tremendous job of calling the games but they also add a different spice too it that most broadcasters don't have.
They make references to hip-hop songs like "Baby Got Back," they refer to the goal-tender's "meaty-part," they make up sounds, and they even have lucky commando nights with Lucky Charms.
