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?

Joe - You need to fill that void in your life by watching Seinfeld.

shark week is my favorite. I have done several shark dives in my life. one in st maarten on my honeymoon and one in the bahamas. these are dives without cages. 6-8 foot carribean reef sharks . The bahamas was best . we had sharks bumping into us . noone got bit . sharks really do take a bad rap.within the next two years planning to dive with great whites off baja on isla guadalupe. Will be in a cage for those

Its funny this is a post this week. We went to the zoo today and they just got a new sea lion exhibit. I got a couple of sideways glances when I asked my wife out loud if she thought they would include the flying great whites eating the sea lions as part of the show. Apparently a sense of humor is not part a qualification as a zoo keeper!

Sorry, Sayfu, but Greg and Chris are no longer together. The "great white shark" swims alone and is back on the hunt.
