I was watching “After the Catch”, a somewhat mild, advertisement-laden rehash of the season’s Deadliest Catch episodes on Discovery Channel where the captains sit down in a pub to talk about various topics with Cash Cab’s Ben Bailey. Even though I fully realize After the Catch is designed simply to stretch out Discovery Channel’s opportunities to sell advertising, I have to admit: I find it interesting enough to ‘keep from changing the channel’ after watching the new Tuesday episodes of Deadliest Catch.
While watching, I noticed the back of Ben Bailey’s shirt read, “Get your CRABS from Phil”. I fully admit, I loved the shirt and thought, “Hey! I want one of those!” Then I looked really carefully at the screen – Thank you Mitsubishi 65” High Definition Television – and I could read the very bottom of Ben’s shirt which said, “http://www.captainphilharris.com”.
Are you kiddin’ me? Captain Phil’s got a web site? Hell yeah.
Then I turned up all the ship’s web sites.
- Cornelia Marie – http://captainphilharris.com/
- Time Bandit – http://www.timebandit.tv/
- Northwestern – http://www.fvnorthwestern.com/
- Wizard – http://www.crabwizard.com/
Then I bought a shirt. Awright Cornelia Marie!
AFTER THE CATCH RECIPES:
Incidentally, each of the sea captains actually COOKED something on After the Catch and posted the recipes online. The crab stuffed mushrooms that Captain Phil made looked pretty tasty so I think I’m gonna aim to try to make those.
I’m so bummed. I bought this shirt of my dad years ago, but it not longer fits him. The store no longer exists either 😩.
Yeah, I know. The whole Cornelia Marie story line is also gone. I think things just didn’t work out for the family, even with the TV revenue which I think is the reason they tried to hold on and keep fishing.
