A photo from a canoe rental business in St. Croix Falls brings to mind the classic film, “What About Bob?” The shot of actor Bill Murray wearing a bright orange life jacket was posted on the website of Eric’s Canoe Rental without much explanation. Anybody know when Murray visited or anything about his trip down the river?

Here’s the shot from “What About Bob?” that Murray surely had in mind when he struck his pose, the only member of the group wearing the PFD:

A part-owner of the St. Paul Saints baseball team, Murray occasionally visits Minnesota to watch games and serve in his role as “Team Psychologist.”
