How about San Josť?

Given that the 'Ť' accent flat-out doesn't exist in Spanish, Josť is by default better.  But that's not saying much, as using the accent is well beyond unnecessary in the writing of "San Jose".  Neither the San Jose Mercury News, the NHL, nor the San Jose Sharks themselves use an accent in the name of the team nor of the city.  In fact, if you do a Google News search of "San Josť", there is no English language source whatsoever that refers to the city as anything other than San Jose.

As someone who lives in San Jose, I can confirm that the Shrimp is correct.

Very well then, San Jose it'll be.

BTW Someone was asking this very question on Yahoo! about accents used in the Spanish language.  Obviously, there will always be some confusion with the unfamiliar at first. Perhaps my knowledge of French got in my way of the Spanish.

Thanks for re-clarifying.  :)

No problem, seahawk.  You're welcome to join up anytime. Besides, so far it's only so few of us participating I doubt anyone will run away with a big lead so fast.    :D :)
