CJ Morgante Day Three Aboard The Stanley Thomas

Y’all may not believe this but CJ refereed the New England Revolution/DC United match last night at Foxboro, got done reviewed the game tape and then hopped in his car at 2:00AM to get to Gloucester to go fishing on his Fourth Boat this morning at 5:00AM.

He went out lobstering with Tony Gross this morning at 5:00AM aboard The Sandollar. We’ll have a report on how he is holding up when he gets in tonight. So far he has been an iron man.

Tony took four boxes of bait this morning, showing no mercy at all for CJ’s schedule. As long as Tony has unloaded here I don’t think he has ever taken four boxes of bait (the previous most amount of bait being three boxes).

CJ Morgante, Day Three Aboard The Stanley Thomas

Here’s CJ, and Matt pulling up to the dock after lobstering yesterday. It was CJ’s third day lobstering on three different lobster boats. He will be refereeing the New England Revolution vs DC United Major League Soccer Match tonight at 7:30. Be sure to check out the match and watch for CJ.

From The New england Revolution Website-

The New England Revolution will look to rebound from a difficult road loss to the San Jose Earthquakes and reclaim its position atop the Eastern Conference table when the club hosts bitter rival D.C. United at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 20, at Gillette Stadium.

The match will be televised regionally on TV38, while Cox3 in Rhode Island will simulcast TV38’s broadcast. Radio listeners will be able to catch the action on WRKO 680 AM. Following the match, the Revolution’s exclusive postgame show, “Revs Wrap,” will stream live on www.revolutionsoccer.net, and the show will also be archived on the site for future use.

CJ Morgante- Day 2 Aboard The Lady J

Here’s CJ, once again hopping right in to offload the crates of lobsters.

He hasn’t once been afraid to get his hands dirty or dive right into something.  As a matter of fact he was so gung ho the first day he showed up he was helping to grade lobsters and after about an hour I saw his hands were all cut up.  I got him a pair of gloves immediately  but I have a hunch he wouldn’t have said a word about it and just toughed it out.

Great guy.

CJ Morgante- Day Two Aboard The Lady J

If you’ve been following along you know that CJ Morgante, Major League Soccer Referee asked for the real Lobsterman experience. Frank set him up on three different boats to go lobstering in three days. That’s pretty cool if you ask me for a boy from Pennsylvania with no ties to Gloucester to just roll up here and hop aboard the boats and get to it.

Day Two- Aboard The Lady J with Captain Dave Jewell and mate Goulart.
