While the surgery was successful (for everyone except the dentist, who hasn't been seen since the moment the tooth was removed), the Shark was still too woozy from the 15 elephant tranquilizers the dentists had to use to sedate him, to play in today's game. Hopefully he will be back in the lineup tomorrow. By that point, a new tooth will have moved into the place where the other was removed, as with all Shark's teeth.
We managed to dig up a picture of the dentistry procedure. Even with the sedatives, it was hard to keep Bernadina still.
