Wanting to learn more about the upcoming Sharks, I sent a tweet last week to Worcester Sharks rookie James Marcou {@wsharksmarcou19}, asking him if he wouldn’t mind answering 20 of the questions that appear in the “Just Asking” section of the San Jose Sharks Magazine.  Not only did Mr. Marcou respond to my tweet, he answered all the questions through messaging from his Facebook page.  I would like to thank Mr. Marcou for answering all these questions and look forward to seeing him play in San Jose.
