The Kraken!

Holy heck, the Seattle team joining the NHL in 2021-22 is going to be called the Kraken!

What an absolutely awesome name. Kudos to whoever thought of it and who ever decided to go ahead with it.

The Stanley Cup playoffs start in only 8 days. Go Pens!

Below the thunders of the upper deep ;
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth : faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides : above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous grot and secret cell
Unnumber’d and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages and will lie
Battening upon huge seaworms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep ;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.

I can see a slight problem.

If the Kraken wakes and Seattle win the Super bowl, will it be the end of the world?
