7-Year-Old SJ Sharks Fan Cries on Video Over Trade

The trade of Ryane Clow drove one San Ramon boy to tears.

The San Ramon 7-year old who was driven to tears after the San Jose Sharks traded away his favorite player is an Internet sensation -- and is being closely courted by his still-favorite team.

Vincent Savage was filmed by his mother crying on April 5, after news broke that the Sharks traded away forward Ryane Clowe to the New York Rangers for draft picks.


"I'm so mad about everything the Sharks have done," he says on the video, which has since made the rounds on the Huffington Post and many other Web sites, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

He had the chance to air his grievances in directly to coaches and players this week, according to the newspaper. He and his mother visited the Sharks' locker room following the pre-game skate -- and he had some stiff words for the players remaining on the team.

"I can't believe you haven't won any Stanley Cups," Vincent told Sharks defense man Dan Boyle.

Clowe also chimed in to soothe Vincent's fears -- the player called him from New York and gave him a signed jersey.

Commence videotaped crying nationwide.
