Sad Day

Captain Phil Harris of the F/V Cornelia Marie died yesterday.

I didn’t know Phil Harris.  I never bought him a drink or smacked him on the back or called him a dick with a big grin on my face.  He was a guy on TV.

But damn it, I liked that guy on TV.  And I’m going to miss him.  Watching the clip of him talking about life at sea got me all choked up this morning.

My sincerest condolences to his family, his crew, and his friends.

  1. That is horrible. I kind of felt like he was the guy we all knew at the end of the bar. I think we all know someone like Phil…

    Honestly, he reminded both Dys and myself a little of her father.

  2. I woke up to a message on my phone about Captain Phil and had to hop on the computer to make sure it was true. Captain Phil was my very favorite on the show ever since Kim first got me hooked on it. My heart goes out to his family and his crew. 😦

    Dys told me when I first woke up so I wouldn’t learn about it via the crawl on the TV.

  3. Crap. I was hoping he was gonna make it.

    We all were. :\

  4. Tears came to my eyes when I had read about that.
