Yesterday, I got the chance to serve as bass pro Mike Iaconelli's onboard marshall during the first day of the Elite Series tournament being held in Philadelphia on the Delaware River. For me, this was a very significant opportunity. See, Mike's home river is the Delaware. My home river is the Delaware. I'm a Jersey guy. Mike's a Jersey guy, and because of this he's the local fan favorite. The pressure is on for him, but despite any jitters, he couldn't have been a more stand up guy and super fun to ride with (even though it felt like his boat was in the air more than on the water).
