I like this guy
Alex Debogorski, one of the regulars on Ice Road Truckers. Trucker on the Ice Roads for 26 years, devoted family man (eleven kids, twelve grandkids, has said he woldn't mind ninety) hard worker, story teller, rough around the edges, unapologetically politically incorrect and Catholic. I caught the promo for next week's episode. It shows him driving in some kind of dangerous condition, and he touches his breast as he says "Jesus, I trust in thee, defend me from the fires of hell..." I almost fell off the chesterfield. How did that get on television?
