Winston Churchill visits the Sharks

By Pierre LeBrun

A version of this quotation is taped in the stall of every Sharks player.

“To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour.” -- Winston Churchill
