Riggo Ponders The Nature Of Friendship

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 24, 2014 – 11:49 am

Riggo2

John Riggins brought the 5 O’Clock Club into the Atlantic Ocean.

Production for the Hall of Fame running back’s culinary show, “Riggo On The Range,” was the excuse for a reunion aboard the Hog Wild, Russ Grimm’s fishing boat in the Outer Banks of Manteo, N.C.

The old camaraderie returned when the “Diesel” hobnobbed with “Grimey,”  Donnie, “Jake” and Jeff –  also known as Grimm, Don Warren, Joe Jacoby and Jeff Bostic.

“The best way to sum it up is that when we left there after a couple of hours  on the beach I swear…  it felt like I would see those guys at 10 o’clock in the morning at the Park,” Riggins said.

“I mean, you just go right back to where you were. It was uncanny. I get goosebumps telling you that. I don’t know what it is, but there’s something  that I think in all of us that they say when you are a young child it’s in the DNA, and it’s just something that’s a reflex action. It’s a great feeling to have. I love being around them just for that reason, just to feel like, ‘Okay, we’re going back and we’re doing it again.’”

 

 

Cameras captured the intimacy Riggins described for a future episode of “Riggo On The Range.” They also found a recumbent Bostic paralyzed in the cabin by the motion of the sea.

Comcast SportsNet will air the Season 2 premiere of “Riggo On The Range” on Saturday, April 5, at 8:30 a.m.

    Riggo looks like a freakin’ sissy in that turtle neck and the shirt looks stupid also…

    I so wish you were meeting at the park at 10:00 a.m. MISS YOU GUYS SO MUCH! Wow, who knew Riggins would end up all grown up? LOL!

    John, I really enjoyed this pc. It does bring back memories. I’ve been a die heart fan since 1969 when I was over in Viet Nam. Growing up I was a Colts fan. But when I was over seas something lured me(you guys)to follow the Skins. Thanks for the walk down memory lane. Your biggest fan Bill E.
