Shark Week

I don't know if it is my fascination with being a submarine commander, or being a sniper, or simply a head-hunting free safety--sharks are cool. They stalk their prey, lurking in the shadows. Then, out of now where, they attack. Generally, their prey have no idea what hit them. Right now on the Discovery Channel they are airing Shark week. It lessens the dead time of the summer. It is not quite as cool as sports, but it is interesting. It always amazes me how those massive hunks of predatory meat can hurl themselves out of the water. Google Air Jaws if you have not witnessed this for yourself. The first time we watched shark week, Katie was pregnant and dreamed about sharks for a month. And, when you are pregnant, your dreams are more vivid. I can only imagine.


  1. you may have a new nickname: the hammerhead. to earn it, i want to see you separate a receiver from the ball at football in the next few weeks.

  2. Unfortunately we cancelled our cable recently, so we are having to live shark week vicariously through our friends as they tell us the wild episodes they saw the night before.

  3. Daniel, I think it's on Netflix, if you have an account. If you don't, I know they offer free one month trials. I would think it's worth it.
