Shark Jumps, Hits, Steals, and Bunts Way to Victory

Last night, Shark was catching fire! In the series finale against the Houston Astros, The Shark gave Bryce Harper a rest and started in CF and batted 2nd. He went 3-4 including one hit that almost took off the pitchers head and later in the game laid down a perfect Shark Bunt. He also had two Shark Steals bringing his total for the year up to 13!

The Shark also continued his media blitz, being interviewed by Holden and Danny on 106.7 THE FAN. Sadly, no mention of the nickname, but still a good interview!

Last night during the game while recounting the THE CATCH OF THE YEAR, F.P. Santangelo called Bernadina "Air Jaws." That got us thinking here at Sharkadina and we wanted to give some examples of sharks making great leaping catches.

First, go back and watch THE CATCH OF THE YEAR again so you can compare it with these.

First off, this Sharkadina original image from last July is eerily appropriate as the Shark's diving catch and great offense was one of the reasons the Nats swept the Astros in their four game series this year.

The shuttle program doesn't even exist anymore!
Here's a Shark Week preview from the Discovery Channel, which features a Great White named Colossus jumping into the air to eat a fake seal. The resemblance to Bernadina jumping into the air to catch a fly ball is uncanny:

And finally, just for fun and for those who haven't seen it. Here is the famous scene from SyFy original movie "Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus" in which A GIANT SHARK JUMPS OUT OF THE WATER AND BITES AN AIRPLANE.

He must have thought it looked like a fly ball.

More to come.

  1. All Sharks on attack are riveting as hell! Real Shark going after seal, computer shark going after plane, and Sharkadina catching that ball in houston.
