Tall Ship season is duck season for Duluth native Bob Hom.

As the wrangler for the World's Largest Rubber Duck, Hom’s summers are busy spent traveling to different ports all around the country and inflating the 61 foot tall, 12 ton bright yellow duck.

In preparation for Tall Ships Duluth, Hom stops by the studio to tell us about his odd job (not his strangest job of all time though) and what people can expect to see this weekend.

What we are into this week: The Olympics (duh) and reruns of “The OC” and “Seinfeld”.
