Best Week Ever

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.  No, I’m not talking about any holiday.  No, I’m not talking about March Madness.  I’m definitely not talking about tax season.

I’m talking about SHARK WEEK!!!!!!!!!

For some reason I have yet to come up with, I find myself yet again drawn to the Discovery Channel this week (starting Sunday) to watch these not very lovable creatures tear things up–literally.  I have no idea why I do it.  Frankly, I don’t care.  I love it.

But I need more.  I need to create something that will make this week even more enjoyable.



(Twiddling thumbs)


Got it!  A Fantasy Scoreboard.

Just like any fantasy league, points will be awarded for various things we the viewer see during the week.  Here’s how it will break down:

5 Point Categories

Diver in a cage

Shark fins circling victim

Blood rising from the water to the surface

10 Point Categories

Limbs Devoured

Victim being dragged under water, then rushing back up…only to be dragged down to their fate

Cameraman yelling: Oh s#$#!!, F&$%, and any other thing that can be beeped out


High point total at the end of the week will get a special shout out on this site.  Other than that, let’s enjoy the week ahead of  us.  We may still never know why we are all addicted to this programming gem, but we’re not about to stop now.



Also, this year’s program is hosted by Andy Samberg.  Bonus.
