You'll never enjoy anything as much as Omar Vizquel enjoyed his toy shark on Friday

Like a cockatiel with a mirror, baseball players are fundamentally incapable of resisting the allure of the dugout TV cameras. Whether they're pelting a teammate with sunflower seeds during an interview or videbombing a reporter, the camera is a tractor beam they cannot resist. But those are actions of brash, youthful players. Rarely do you see the coaches taking part. Then again, no one is quite like Omar Vizquel. 
Vizquel, who paints, sings Goo Goo Dolls songs and shows off Gold Glove defense even when he's not on the field, displayed some prime Dad humor as he used a toy shark ... thing ... to block the TV camera. We can only assume he sang the "Jaws" theme music as he went and kept repeating "We're gonna need a bigger camera." 

Sadly, no matter what you do the rest of your life, you will never have as much fun as Vizquel had in those five seconds.
