Thanks a million, buddy



A guy caught a 883-pound blue marlin in a fishing tournament off the coast of North Carolina last week and would've won nearly a million bucks if he hadn't been disqualified because of one of his crew members didn't have a $5 fishing license. Niiiice.

The poor guy named Andy Thomossan said, "It hurts. No record. No money. No fish. No nothing.Yep, it's a nice ending to the story, isn't it? We didn't do anything wrong. But one of our people did. He failed to get a fishing license, but we didn't know it. He told us he had it. He didn't. So you take a man for his word, you know? I can't do anything.''
