The Old man and the sea on Barney jetty. This wonderful man told me a great joke about photographers, sorry I can’t remember. Maybe I will remember it some day. I hope he still alive and well. God bless him.
Santiago says this to Manolin during their conversation in his shack. They speak of baseball before Manolin goes to fetch the sardines for bait for the next day, and Santiago’s admiration for DiMaggio is apparent. DiMaggio becomes a symbol both of manhood and of overcoming strife for Santiago the next day while he is battling the great marlin. He cuts his hand and thinks about how Joe DiMaggio keeps playing despite the handicap of a bone spur; this gives him the strength to catch the fish.
