RIP Phil Harris

Tonight’s Deadliest Catch show is the one I’ve dreaded all season.  We weren’t home tonight, and I was literally sick to my stomach about whether I should watch it tonight or not.  We all knew this was the show Phil Harris dies.  There was no more hoping he pulls through.  If you have  not seen the show yet, just know as soon as they start playing Johnny Cash, you need to get the tissues out.  The most heart wrenching part?  When Josh had to call Jake (who had went off to rehab since he dad seemed to be doing better) and tell him that their dad didn’t make it.  (My heart is breaking again just typing that).

I just have to say that Discovery handled this with class.  Honestly, they couldn’t have done it any better.  After The Catch was funny stories about Phil.  He wouldn’t have wanted an hour show about him with us crying the whole time (though when Sig got a little teary eyed at the end there I almost lost it again).

Josh and Jake — I hope you find a way to buy the rest of the boat.  Having met you last week (Josh), you are a class act and you boys only deserve the best that comes your way (and try not to beat the crap out of Jake next season).

I can only believe that Phil is looking down from Heaven in amazement with all the lives he’s touched.  I’m sure he never knew what an impact he’s made.

  1. I'm glad you made it through the show. I know how worried you were last week about it airing.

    I think I'm might have to check this show out.
