Shark Week: Free Diving With Great Whites

Personally we think anyone who free dives with Great Whites has to be just a little bit nuts.  However, cameraman Andy Casagrande has done 13 Shark Week specials and lived to tell his tales — with all his limbs intact.

Andy has some great stories about his adventures with those scary fish, and some really good tips for dealing with them (if you’re as crazy adventuresome as he is) should you ever encounter a Great White up close and personal.

Great whites are easy. They’re built like pit bulls on steroids. They can bend their fins here and there, but their way of showing they’re angry is they open and close their mouth. So they just show you the jaws sign. They swim right at you and gape.

We’ll take your word for it, Andy.  Anyway, you can catch the entire interview with Entertainment Weekly here.  It’s great stuff so give it a read.

The 501st Legion will be at Star Wars Celebration VI in full force. Just one of the many activities they have setup is Shoot-A-Trooper. This is your chance to pick up a Nerf gun and blast a stormtrooper…or maybe a celebrity. Shoot-A-Trooper is raising funds for the Peter Mayhew Foundation and will be in the Exhibit Hall near the Food Court.

Along with all the 501st members who will be allowing themselves to be shot, there will be a few celebrity guests as well such as The Clone Wars voice actor Stephen Stanton (who’ll most likely be wearing his Tarkin outfit, Thursday from 12pm-1pm), the young Boba Fett Daniel Logan (Saturday at 12:30 along with Slave Leias), and Peter Mayhew will be hanging out each day toward the end of the day. Stephen Stanton is also bringing his buddy Rick Fitts who played Dr. Martin in Star Trek: The Next Generation, so this may be your one and only chance to play Shoot-A-Trekker!

You can find out more about Shoot-A-Trooper by visiting their official Facebook page.
