Shark Week is Back Celebrating 25 Years On Discovery!

It's that time again to celebrate one of this year's most anticipated weeks on TV..Shark Week! It was close to 20 years ago that I got hooked on Shark week and each year since, I countdown the days till those Great White shark jumps begin. What started was a late night out in August while at the University of Georgia getting home at 1am to turn on the tube and found this amazing Documentary, I didn't stop watching it that faithful night until 6am that morning! I can't stay up that late anymore, but I still max out my DVR each year with shark episodes.

Did I mention that my wife has a complete Phobia of sharks and can't even watch the commercial let alone hear me talk about it, this makes it a little challenging on who get's the remote each night

The Discovery Channel's Shark Week, which first aired on July 17, 1988, is a week-long series of feature television programs dedicated to sharks. Shark Week is held annually, normally running in July or August. Shark Week was developed to help the average person have a greater respect for sharks. Shark Week is now broadcast in over 72 countries.

Kent thanks for your comment and glad you enjoy shark week as well. Plenty of action to sat the least and I actually can't wait to get back out to catch a few again on a fly.
