Despite the fun and games, 32-year old Sharp has been in tremendous form for the Blades this season scoring 19 goals as his side chase promotion to the Premier League.
United twice came from behind in the game thanks to goals from Sharp as Norwich lost ground on leaders Leeds United at the top of the table.
The Blades currently sit in third following the draw and are a team that Irish fans will be sure to have their eyes on over the next couple of months.
Irish internationals David McGoldrick, Enda Stevens and John Egan all heavily feature for Chris Wilders side and are in with an excellent chance of playing Premier League football next season.
Sharp has scored 222 goals in English football since the turn of the century and is currently the most prolific English goalscorer.
