Who's Getting Pumped for Shark Week?
By Joe Cermele
I don't really watch a lot of TV. I don't have my "shows." I don't care what's happening on "True Blood" and no, I never saw that episode of "Seinfeld," so please stop asking. I did, however, see just about every show aired during Discovery Channel's Shark Week since I was eight years old. Back in the day, I recall a lot of rerun footage from the year before. In the past few years, I'd say Discovery has really upped their game. And they're very tight-lipped about what viewers can expect in 2012. I'm more excited about the unveiling of the line-up than I was to see the opening ceremony of the Olympics. But they did share one tidbit. Check out the video below. It looks like Volkswagen is a title sponsor this year, and as such, they've built an anti-shark cage that looks like a Bug. Given the Bug's history of faultiness, I really hope the doors don't fall off or something when they get nudged by a white shark. Who else is stoked for Shark Week?
