Oh, how I miss having my own show. I have got to turn MO GOES into a regular television show or segment.
In between gigs, I found myself in Cabo San Lucas in a hot tub with three young hunks of burning love from Homer, Alaska. I had just come from a hike and was soaking solo when they showed up.
I thought I was gazing upon models from the Alaska 2011 Calendar. It turns outs that Keith, Joel, (aka Matt Damon), and Javin are commercial salmon fishermen (not to be confused with professional fishermen who do it for sport and money; these love chunks do it for money). I never realized how much I cared about salmon until these fisher fellows started talking. Sometimes it’s not the message; it’s the messenger. There are five species of salmon. Some are valued for their meat, some for their roe. Riveting, I know.
King (Chinook) – The best, Red (Sockeye), Silver (Coho), Dog (Chum)* – *The Japanese dig the Dog due to its roe. Humpies (Pink) – Mostly canned.
I like these guys. There are young, earnest, and respectful. Yes, I made them pose and busted them for being them, but I wish them good things. I told them they can’t be on The Deadliest Catch. I’d worry too much. However, if I were the head of the salmon industry, I’d have them sitting in hot tubs around the country touting the benefits of salmon. I’d listen. Oh, and wait ’til you hear all about Alaskan King Crab….
