Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals was like a kick in the stomach for San Jose Sharks fans whose stomachs have already been kicked frequently than a game ball at the World Cup. Two goals in 22 seconds, with the Sharks taking two costly late-game penalties. Ouch.
You want to feel sorry for them. OK, most of us do. This Los Angeles Kings fan didn’t, and decided to troll hard with a dramatic reading for a San Jose Sharks fan’s sad lament on the HF Boards about the defeat. This is deliciously brutal (one PG-13 word):
Well that was a hundred paper cuts treated with a lemon juice and salt mixture and then slapped with a ruler for two hours …
The original post was by “StreetSharks”, who cites “#19 Joe Trollton” under its HF Boards name. The post:
What else do you expect him to say? When you lived the same failures the Sharks lived before last year, you know how it feels to be disappointed as a die hard fan.
Then put yourself in our place, a bunch of people taunting, trolling, and being cocky as hell against us after your win last year, how would you feel?
Basically, you were one of us.. respected us.. and somehow it all went downhill to a bunch of new age cocky jerks.
I'll accept the Kings win, it was a badass comback, but to come back here after being silent when it was 3-2 sharks to taunting the living **** out of us, how do you expect many of us to react?
Sorry I'm ranting to you bro, the trolls got to me tonight, cheers.
That last line might replace “don’t let the bastards get you down” as our favorite post-frustration mantra of all-time.
