The good news is that Captain Phil from Deadliest Catch is that he is apparently recovering from surgery over the weekend after he had suffered a stroke last week. If you don't watch Deadliest Catch then you probably have no idea who Captain Phil is. If you do watch the show then you are probably saying to yourself this was just a matter of time. As near as I can make out, Captain Phil chain smokes 24 hours a day, can explode like a bottle rocket in about an instant and works way too much. Without him this show would not be nearly as entertaining and I really do hope he gets better soon. His family released the following statement through Discovery Channel.
"[Sons] Josh and Jake Harris thank everyone for their heartfelt thought and prayers. The Deadliest Catch community has always been more like family than just fans.
