When ESPN dipped its toe into the frothy waters of Sharknado-mania by suggesting a name change for the San José Sharks, little did the network know the team’s reply would have teeth. Apparently the Sharks are more than just a snappy name; it turns out they play hockey too, not that you’d know from watching ESPN.

The Sharks must have hit a nerve — the response was quickly retweeted more than 12,000 times.
