Clue-by-Four: Ramblings of a Jock Dork

Another Tribute: Capt. Phil Harris of the Cornelia Marie (9 P.M. on Discovery Channel)

Posted in Jock Dork: It's Who I Am by Wingnut on July 13, 2010

If you are not on the West Coast and plan to watch the All Star game, please TiVo or DVR tonights episode of Deadliest Catch at 9 p.m. on the Discovery Channel. This is the final episode for Cornelia Marie captain Phil Harris, who died earlier this year from a stroke.

He was a tough man at times, but was an amazing captain and a loving father. I have watched every episode since the series began and it will be hard to watch the final hours of a man I’ve grown to admire. I am grateful to Phil for opening his boat and family to the rest of us.

From what little I’ve seen, the final moments between father and son are very touching and demonstrate how much those boys looked up to their old man. Check out these links and watch the two hour special. Even if you have never seen the show, you will be better for the experience.
