Today is a sad day. Captain Phil Harris, Of the Cornelia Marie fishing vessel, is now dead. He died of a stroke suffered while he was in port in Alaska. He was with his family.
I love to watch "The Deadliest Catch". It has become one of my favorite shows. I find it intriguing to sit in the comfort of my home and watch these fishermen battle life and death to reel in various type of crab. The characters are great and Phil was one of the best. He had a dry sense of humor, but was no-nonsense when it came down to business time. His approach was just do it, nothing else.
I will miss him, and hope that the show can find a person with a good persona to use in his stead. He cannot be replaced.
My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
