Shark Week still fascinates

The Discovery Channel annual shark fest begins tonight at 9 p.m. ET with the two-hour premiere of Ocean of Fear: Worst Shark Attack Ever, narrated by Jaws man himself, Richard Dreyfuss. The show will tell the horrifying real-life story of the worst shark attack ever recorded, after the sinking of the U.S.S. Indianapolis in 1945.

My fascination with sharks began the summer I saw Jaws. Years later, when the annual Discovery Channel Shark Week kicks off, I’m like a kid at Christmas. There is something eerily entrancing about sharks that I cannot resist.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Shark Week, the Discovery Channel is offering 130 hours of shark programs this week until Saturday August 4.

From life-saving tips, if you’re ever under a shark attack, to the feeding habits of the mighty beasts, Shark Week has something for everyone who has ever been intrigued by sharks.

What a horrific story. I watched it and my heart goes out to their families.

God Bless the men on that ship.
