The world lost one of its most colorful characters yesterday when 'Deadliest Catch' crabber Captain Phil Harris died. My heart goes out to his family. Even though I never met the man, I believe Phil was truly one of a dwindling breed - an man who did his own thing, his own way, without apology. Though his life was shorter than it should've been, he seemed like a man who lived life to the fullest.
Safe journey, Phil.
