Hello, we are Terry and Tyler and we nicknamed Roger Bernadina, "The Shark." on August 26, 2010.

We nicknamed him The Shark for the way he hunts down fly balls in the outfield like a Shark hunts his prey.

This is how we look at games:

If you can't see from that image, we wear shark hoods to the game, carry signs, and shamelessly cheer for our favorite player. If you see us at Nats Park say hi (and cheer loudly for The Shark).

Eventually, we met Roger Bernadina:

And hung out with him:

We got many more Shark fans on board:

And we were in the Washington Post:

The fan base of The Shark is growing daily. Be sure to keep up with us at this blog, as well as on Facebook and Twitter: @sharkadina (Terry) and @tyindc (Tyler).

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love your site guys! Feels like....going home...Keep spreading the word! Go Shark! Go Nats!

  2. Wonder if he could use the theme from Three Penny Opera (Ballad of Mack the Knife) as at bat music? The words go "Oh the shark has pretty teeth, dear, and he keeps them pearly white. Just a jack knife has McHeath, dear, and he keeps it out of sight." There's an awesome clip of Louis Armstrong singing it on YouTube.

  3. terry & tyler...we've been nats fans since their arrival in 2005 and are very excited to see young fans getting involved & keeping the web buzzing with all the "Roger" news!! Thanks & we'll be looking for you guys at the Park !!!

    Lyle Lovett sang "Brown-Eyed Handsome Man" at Wolf Trap last night. In the verse about the baseball player "rounding third and heading for home" he sang out "Roger Bernadina"!
