I’ll let you in on a secret . . . .

If you go to any marina in South Florida and hang out at the bar, you will see at least 10 boozy old fisherman an hour who resemble Ernest Hemingway.

It’s like the lottery, though — someone’s got to win. This year Key West crowned Bob Doughty of Deerfield Beach the winner of the annual Hemingway look-alike contest.

In my opinion, they should give the award to the first “snowy-haired” guy who shows up and doesn’t say his favorite Hemingway book is The Old Man and the Sea.
