The marine layer is burning off to give way to what should be a warm afternoon in the South Bay. It was a fairly late arrival last night – because of restrictions on late takeoffs and landings at San Jose International Airport, the team touched down in Oakland at a quarter to one before busing south to downtown San Jose, where we’ll be stationed for the next 36 hours. The team will take the ice at the Sharks’ practice facility shortly after 1:00 pm, which should allow enough time for this blog reflect on last night’s loss to Phoenix. “Waking up with the Kings” will be posted later this morning. A good day to all of you in the Kingdom.
