**MOJO** - Silence Day 1

"It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt." It's a famous quotation sometimes attributed to Mark Twain, sometimes to Abraham Lincoln, sometimes to Lisa Simpson. However, it's murky origins make it no less sage of advice. It is a lesson that some feel the Red Sox could learn, and so today begins Silence Mojo, to help those who feel the team should just "shut up and play".

We start with one of the silent killers from the sea: Great White Sharks.

It is a creature that has lasted 100 million years without a single evolutionary change. It lives to do nothing but swim, eat and make baby sharks. It is silent coming through the water, and when you see the fin break the surface coming toward you it is all ready too late. And if you think pesky birds are safe from the sea dwelling shark, you may want to think again.

Today's offense could learn a thing or two from the great white. Stalk ruthlessly. Attack ferociously. Rest is for those who are not feared. Today, lets start the All Star Break by making the water a little more crimson like the team's namesake.

By the end of today's game, Rodrigo Lopez will be wishing he had a bigger boat.

If you'd like to participate from home with today's mojo, Mad Shark is the perfect way to do it. Show those pesky divers who's boss.

Sharks also have any extraordinarily robust immune system. This does not mean I advocate getting shark organs, grinding them up, and ingesting them. The only real ways to benefit from sharks currently are to:
a) keep away from them
b) evolve epigonal and Leydig's organs like sharks have
c) further research their immunological response

Here's for Bloody, Dirty Water today.

Beware though, the last people who attempted to benifit through research of shark's immune system in hopes of curing Alzheimer's disease accidentally made a group of super intelligent sharks. I'm pretty sure Samuel L Jackson was on that research staff.
