Most of those guys on Deadliest Catch are from Seattle and many of them are Norwegian, who would of "thunk"!
I know so many people want to meet these guys, but he is one of the few people I want to meet before i Kick the bucket. Can you get him a message?

Deegers, yes, I keep rooting for Capt. J too!

I ran into Capt. Phil at Capital Grille last September. Seems to be a little full of himself these days. I would not have expected that from someone who almost died a few months earlier.

I had contact with many of those vessels, their crews, and their owners when I worked in Alaska. Trust me when I say that most of these guys NOT the sweethearts they appear to be on TV.

Have met Sig and Edgar and their wives and some of Sig's family/friends at a small party my friend had and they WERE/ARE nice guys. Of course I wasn't working on a boat with them and they were having a good time, so were in a good mood, having fun. But nice, ordinary people IMO.

And I agree, RIP Captain Phil.
