Did You Know?
FIN is not a SHARK! I get many people calling me “Sharkie”!
You want a shark go to San Jose. I am all whale baby… even better I am a mammal and actually ‘eat’ fish.
I do well over 100 appearances every year and this does not include Canucks games. I have made appearances at weddings, community events, and birthday parties (ranging from 1 to 90 years old). I even travel to other cities. I have been to Florida, New York, Montreal, and Toronto. Not to mention many beautiful places all over British Columbia. From my experiences this truly is B.C.’s team.
I get many people asking why I never come to their sections at games. I can only tell you that I do my best to visit everyone, but I do have a game night itinerary which often requires me to be at certain places at specific times.
Who is your favorite player?
I really do not have any favorites. I can tell you that they are all a bunch of great guys.
– Killer whales have sound reception or hearing through the lower jaw through the soft tissue and bone surrounding the ear.
– Killer whales have acute vision both in and out of the water (especially for popcorn at Rogers Arena).
– Killer whales breathe through a single blowhole on the dorsal surface of their heads.
