I’m so sad…

You probably couldn’t guess this…but I am a HUGE “Deadliest Catch” fan…and I’ve just learned that Phil Harris, Captain of the Cornelia Marie, has died:

Remembering ‘Deadliest Catch’ Captain Phil Harris

Phil was great because he was exactly what we thought a captain would be: Frequently swearing, chain-smoking, and stressing; a teller of tales with a fondness for pranks; a gruff man who’d choose to stay with his ship even when his doctors said it was dangerous; and a softie who’d turn almost poetic when he reflected on the only job he’d ever known.

Ol’Captain Harris gave “grizzled” a new and relevant meaning:

“You go through a couple marriages, smoke cigarettes like it’s going out of style, your body aches from the time you get up to the time you go to bed, and you wake up in the middle of the night thinking about where you’re going to put the next pot. Yeah, it’s a great lifestyle.” ~ Cap’n Phil Harris, Cornelia Marie

You will be missed, Captain.

    Gosh, I’m also a big fan of “Deadliest Catch” and the news of Capt. Harris’ death really knocked me for a loop. He was always one of my favorites to follow on the series and his love for his boys- and theirs for him- was always plain to see. I can’t imagine how tough it is for them right now. I’m going to really miss seeing him on the series, it won’t be the same without him. :(

    R.I.P Capt Phil. May you have fair winds and calm seas.
