BatShark Begins

We here at Sharkadina pride ourselves on our clever photoshops of actual sharks inserted into baseball situations. This may be the first time that one of our readers has sent us a photoshop that rivals our own. In case you missed it, Adam LaRoche homered using Bernadina's bat on Tuesday night. Adam "The Stag" LaRoche claimed to use the bat because it is two ounces lighter than his and Ian "Daddy Desmond" suggested that it would help him hit R.A. Dickey's knuckleball.

Super Shark fan @valliant306 created this image that accurately depicts the moment right after contact, showing us that in the game of shark, paper, knuckleball, Shark wins every time.
SHARK > knuckleball
While we have yet to receive an entry in our GO SHARK YOURSELF contest, between this photoshop, the best Shark drawing of all time, and our upcoming post honoring a couple of hardcore Shark fans, it is clear that there is some serious SHARKITUDE out there in NatsTown. Keep tweeting us your pics and we'll keep posting them!

Maybe it has something to do with Bernadina's stats...batting .500 over the past week, bringing his average to .295 on the season, so close to the .300 mark that Bill Ladson promised would make him drop the Speed Racer nickname and accept The Shark. Oh, wait that already happened.

Shark also has 3 runs, 4 RBIs, and 2 stolen bases in the past week. Shark Week will continue as long as Bernadina starts! (Actual Shark Week starts Aug. 12)

More to come.
