San Jose Sharks, ESPN exchange barbs on Twitter over ‘Sharknado’
If you haven’t at least heard of “Sharknado” starring Tara Reid and former “Beverly Hills 90210” actor Ian Zeiring, you are probably just waking up from a 48-hour nap. The ridiculous movie that debuted on the Syfy channel Thursday night is all everyone has been talking about.
The movie basically centered on a tornado that spit man-eating sharks at people. Don’t believe me? Just Google it — you’ll see. On Friday morning, ESPN decided to get in on the trending hashtag #Sharknado by tweeting a lame joke at the San Jose Sharks’ official Twitter account:

The joke was harmless and certainly not offensive, but whoever was operating the Sharks’ Twitter was in no mood for joking around with the World Wide Leader.
Hey @espn, thoughts on showing more hockey highlights?

And that was the end of that. ESPN now knows better than to try to get chummy with the Sharks. Either start showing more hockey highlights, or stop tweeting at the boys from San Jose. Clearly they have no interest in entertaining your corny humor.
