Catching Zs on Deadliest Catch

The show continues to astound its fans, but I'm betting the two episodes of Captain Phil falling asleep at the helm of the Cornelia Marie, and the one with a greenhorn deck ape on the early Dawn falling asleep on his watch, won't do much to endear fishermen as a whole to the rest of the professional seafaring community, including the policy makers at the Coast Guard.

Meanwhile, word is Phil almost died from an aneurysm. It's no wonder when you consider his obsessive work ethic and life style. You really can't survive on crab fishing, Red Bull and cigarettes.
