It’s no secret that the ‘ice girls’ for hockey teams all over the country wear some pretty revealing garb. If you’ve ever been to a hockey game, you probably recall seeing some scantily clad young ladies cleaning the ice. The San Jose Sharks also have ice girls, though their uniforms have been regarded as modest in the past, in comparison to other teams like the Dallas Stars.
That’s all about to change though, as the Sharks have instituted a new uniform for their ice girls. They will now be wearing a tight, midriff-bearring shirt. Sounds chilly!
Although the job of cleaning the ice for the Sharks is available to both men and women, only the women will be required to wear the revealing uniform. This has many fans of the Sharks outraged. Some reportedly even plan to pull their season tickets if the team moves forward with the new dress code.
Shark’s fan Jarrod Hicks told the local NBC News affiliate:
“If the guys are not going to be wearing tight-fitting clothing, then why are the girls wearing tight-fitting clothing? And also, it won’t make us win a cup. And that’s what San Jose wants.”
A Facebook page has been started called “Say No To Shark’s Ice Girls” for those who feel the need to rally together in protest of the new uniforms. No word as to how the women who would be forced to wear the uniforms feel.
