Spring is springing in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the waters are stocked, it’s open season for vaccines and we need to keep wearing our masks, even as we celebrate another year of Brady’s Bend Township on 16-APRIL 2021. Observations from Brady’s Bend Spring has sprung up with an allergic reaction for me these past few weeks. There is something magical about all the trees flowering and my eyes wanting to stay closed. Spring soccer is starting. Phoebe and Crosby are […]
Attention all want to be Riley’s River Rats, it’s time to step up to a new challenge. While 2021 continues to be an extension of 2020 with Covid-19 still raging war on us humans, ALS doesn’t stop, so neither will we when it comes to raising funds for research and PALS support. After successfully raising over $1000 as a team to #FIGHTNF and running in our undies, this one should be much easier. If you walk, run, swim, bike, paddle, […]
In case you still want to be an Undie runner, the official event is this upcoming Saturday. It’s virtual so you can run wherever and join the party online. We came together as a team with our masks, social distancing and small group. We also took to the bricks of our back alley. If you sponsored one of us or the entire team to help fund the battle with NF- thank you. Love and undies, #rileysriverrats
#Riley’sRiverRats #I’mWithCupid Aspinwall, Pennsylvania This weekend some of the river rats are going to take to the alley.You may wonder why we would strip to our undies in Pennsylvania but it’s fun in the fundraising that makes this such a special charity. I’ve been doing this since 2016 in Milwaukee. That year I ran past the bronze FONZ on the river walk. This year thanks to COVID-19 we will be distant, we will be virtual, we will be in an […]
Some days I watch the news and feel like the headlines are crazier than the Netflix Series: House of Cards. I remember that night in 2016 when I went to sleep with the feeling that I would wake up to the news that America’s Richest Bankrupt Billionaire was going to be elected as our country’s 45th President. I remember that feeling of emptiness and gut pain, knowing that our country was going down a path that was not guided with […]
Welcome to December 2020! Let’s see we are in month number ten since this started back in March. All the sports fans in the United States were getting ready for madness, first the toilet paper run, right before the NCAA could have their basketball tournament. Then there was no Opening Day for the Cubbies or Giants in April. As the safer at home plan continued outdoor soccer and the Pittsburgh Marathon were also cancelled. Thankfully as summer arrived up north […]
Yes it’s November 15, 2020. We are on day 3 of our Thanksgiving isolation in preparation for the holiday. We have discussed safe food handling protocols, forgoing the standard family style pass the dish, instead having a gloved-masked chef dish out individual plates. I was delighted to find a completely empty press box for yesterday’s state playoff game allowing me to stick to my isolation protocols. There are some perks to avoiding on field assignments this time of year. Debriefing […]
This is the year that you need to wear more than undies for Cupid’s Undie Run. Masks are required unless you are in your quarantine pod. Riley’s River Rats is planning their 2021 fundraiser for a virtual run or plunge on New Year’s Day. We will be creating Team T-shirts so you can wear them proudly throughout the New Year. Oh yes, sign ups are happening NOW and the 2021 Undie Run will be a virtual one.
Yes the dog is getting out in nature. The little break from heat and humidity was appreciated by the elkhound.
