Big Papa?

In an earlier post, Joel from the All Canada show suggested that Gord was beginning to look a bit like George Bernard Shaw. That seemed a bit harsh. I was glad that post didn’t take an ugly turn like the one where Gord suggested that Sir Charles looked like Richard Nixon.

However, a few weeks ago I was down in Key West and we stopped by Sloppy Joe’s. They had lots of pictures of the annual Big Papa Look-a-like contest. Now I don’t know if Gord looks more like George Bernard Shaw or Ernest Hemmingway, but at least Ernest knew how to fish. You be the judge. Does Gord look more like George Bernard Shaw, Ernest Hemmingway or Charles Manson?

  1. Once I was at a dinner with Joel (from All-Canada) and he told a woman he looked like Brad Pit with a hat on….she told him to put a hat on. I thought the picture of George Bernard Shaw was Gord at the end of the season!

  2. O.K. you guys, I leave for a week and come back to this! I'm flattered that Andy has "saved" what must be one of the worse pictures of yours truly.

  3. I think it's very unfair to compare Gord to anyone else. He's a one-of-a-kind Canuk. Someday, parents throughout Canada will be naming their sons after him, perhaps their daughters as well.

    Of greater interest to me is this particular photo of Gord. I've never seen him up pre-dawn before. So there must have been something really important to be doing. I'm thinking that he just crawled out of bed by his squinty eyes. Perhaps that beer in the long neck is the perfect eye-opener for such an occasion.

Thank you very much for making my get a way week so enjoyable. Dan and I had a great time. You and Susanne should be commended on how clean and well maintained your cabins and lodge are. I will recommend you to anyone that is looking to go to Canada fishing and I look forward to the time I can come back.
