White Sox had 'shark cage' section for Shark's start

Bonjour! I am zee world famous Jacques Cousteau, seafaring explorer extraordinaire.

Today, we are going to see zee greatest danger I have encountered on my sea explorations. More frightening zan zee giant squeed and more dangerous zan zee 'ammerhead is the White Sox's Jeff Samardzija. Otherwise nicknamed zee Shark. 

Which is why, at his start against zee Mariners (a perfectly fitting team for such a day) on Sunday, fans in sections 154 and 155 at US Cellular Field in Cheecago were gifted Shark Cage caps.
