Upon hearing news that Rick Ankiel could be the front runner for the starting center fielder job, Bernadina needed a moment to himself. He thought about the trouble ahead and the trouble behind, as well as the importance of the coming days. (Honestly, he was also a bit confused because he thought Rick Ankiel had been sucked into a sub propeller during a shark riding contest...) To clear his mind, The Shark cranked some Eagles: Greatest Hits (the #1 best selling album of all time in the United States) on his iPod and went to the nearest aquarium to just swim out all his concerns.
While he may not have gotten the "moment to himself" that he wanted, he did get a standing invitation to become a permanent exhibit in the aquarium if the whole baseball thing doesn't work out.
PS. Bernadina went 1 for 2 today. .500 batting average... Not too shabby.
More to come.
