Did you know that the National Hockey League club was founded in 1993 by The Walt Disney Company and was originally known as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. The name was inspired by the 1992 film “The Mighty Ducks.” The name remained the same until the 2006-2007 season, when the club officially became known as the Anaheim Ducks.
Although I am a die-hard San Jose Sharks fan, the Anaheim Ducks have always been my second favorite team because they are associated with Disney and, of course, my love of the film. I follow both teams, but when they play against each other, my heart may be torn, but I root for my Sharks. Do you like Hockey?
