San Jose Sharks are adding “ice girls” and fans aren’t happy

Even though their California counterparts both employ ice girls, along with several other teams in the league, the San Jose Sharks have never gone that route. When the ice needs to cleared, it’s usually skaters in black pants, fully covered.

There was no need to go with the eye candy route for the Sharks. The fans in San Jose actually love their hockey and don’t need eye candy to come to the games. (Yeah, that’s a dig at SoCal hockey “fans.”)

However, the Sharks think that ice girls are the way to go. They will wear skin-tight black pants, a top that will cover some of their body. They’ll just look like this. Essentially, it’s objectifying women, right? Kind of like what cheerleaders are for basketball and football, right?

Even though this will be a co-ed team, the men will be fully clothed while the women will be wearing tighter, more revealing outfits.

As much as eye candy is fun for some fans, overall, it’s not necessary and adds nothing to the game itself.

Sharks fans expressed their disappointment in this decision on Twitter.
