This is San Jose Sharks fan Adrian Ruiz, celebrating after he got tickets to Game 3 of last year's Western Conference Semifinals. The AP contrasted this happy-good-times photo with this news:
Ruiz, 24, a surfer, was killed by a shark attack off the coast of Mexico. Ruiz was surfing at Trancones beach off the Pacific coast of Mexico on Monday, April 28, 2008 when he was bitten by a gray shark on his right thigh.
Way to kill the party, AP. Sheesh, the people at the Ironic Death Department must have stayed up all night working on this one. As a Mariners fan, it makes me afraid that I'm going to get raped to death by drunken sailors. I think I'll avoid deepwater ports for a while.
