Brent Burns #88 :)
The private event was held at Sharks Ice in San Jose. I arrived at around 12:20PM & got to watch the Sharks practice until 1PM. After that, they went back to the locker room while the donors & their guests waited in anticipation for the buzzcuts, haha!

Joe Thornton #19 & Joe Pavelski #8
Buzzcut stations are set!
The players that were involved were: Joe Pavelski, Chris Tierney, Barclay Goodrow, Mirco Mueller, James Sheppard & Brent Burns. All were getting the buzzcuts to support three wonderful causes: the San Francisco Zoo, Defending the Blue Line & the Katie Moore Foundation. They had actual salon professionals help with the buzzcuts this year versus having random Sharks players doing it :P

I was quite happy with my seat as I was basically two rows away from my favorite Sharks player, Joe Pavelski! I was ecstatic that I got to witness his buzzcut right in front of me, haha. Oh that smile ;) He was the first to get the cut along with Goodrow.
Joe Pavelski & his smile ;)

Bye bye gorgeous hair!
Mirco Mueller was up next since he's Burns' defense buddy. He didn't look too pleased getting the cut, lol. James Sheppard lost his Disney prince hair & Chris Tierney took it like a man.

Finally, it was Brent Burns' turn to get it all shaved off! He took Pavelski's spot so I had a good viewing vantage for his turn as well. I think his was the biggest transformation of them all. He went from a beast to a good looking guy :P

I had put Stephen as my guest since Vinh couldn't make it. A shame since Burns was his favorite player. Stephen helped me wear Vinh's jersey to get it signed though so thanks Stephen! I also got my Pavelski jersey signed by Burns along with my white Sharks 2014 draft cap!

I look like a shrimp next to these two lol
My autographed items, yayyy!
Overall, a very fun event for a great cause! Would you ever participate in a good cause like this? Have you met any of your favorite sports players? :)
