I’m not the only journalist in the family. Over the weekend, my spouse went to CatchCon, a convention for fans of “The Deadliest Catch,” a Discovery Channel show she has covered in a column she writes for USA TODAY.
When she got home, she said I may still have a chance to draw two crab boats from the show that were docked by the Bell Harbor Conference Center for the 500 ticket-holders to tour.
I couldn’t say no. I zipped down I-5 to Pier 66 just in time to sketch the Wizard and the Northwestern as a Coast Guard helicopter and its crew staged a simulated rescue for the fans. Have I mentioned what a catch my wife is?
