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.
