"But then he explained and I was like, 'Sure.' Everyone said, 'Do it.' It was peer pressure for a good cause."

You know your job is pretty cool when all you have to do is fish.

That's exactly what I'd be saying if I was a fisherman. However, I probably should since I still have a bucket list to catch a fish, fillet it, and roll my own sushi on the spot. That will have to wait for another day.

Until then, enjoy Ray Scott in all his glory. It was a fun laid back assignment.
