When I can’t watch football or hockey, a TV programs that I love is Deadliest Catch, which is a story of a bunch of entrepreneurs who try to keep themselves afloat (literally) in the fishing industry. For those of you who follow the show, according to the NY Daily News, “Captain Phil Harris, the cantankerous, chain-smoking crabbing boat boss who became a household name on Discovery's hit series "The Deadliest Catch," died Tuesday. He was 53.Harris had suffered a stroke Jan. 30 while in port off-loading his ship the F/V Cornelia Marie in Alaska. He had been hospitalized ever since.”
It was hard not to like Phil…he was the guy who was always barking orders, but who also had a loveable side. A couple of seasons ago, he broke down in tears after rescuing one of the crew members who fell overboard into the freezing ocean.
