Coming back from another SUPER BUSY weekend in NEPA. Friday I got to hang with my favorite bird, Tux, and fire up the crowd for the Penguins playoff opener. Our Pens won the first 2 games at home this weekend and can wrap up the 1st round of the Calder Cup playoffs with a win in Syracuse Wednesday night. #LetsGoPens
Sunday I hit Scranton with 500 over riders for the 12th Annual Tour de Scranton. We did the 32 mile trek to Carbondale & back. Despite a cloudy day, it was great to get out for my first big ride of the season.
The money raised benefits the Erin Jessica Moreken Drug & Alcohol Treatment Fund.

Sunday night I ditched the spandex and got all fancy with Fast Freddie at the big fundraiser for the Scranton Cultural Center. We were media hosts for the 15th Annual Evening of Fine Food & Wine. Wow! Great tastes indeed. And it's really cool to donate the time and give back to an awesome facility like the Cultural Center. We are so lucky to have such a venue here in NEPA.
Things got a little cheeky in the first rate at the Canterbury race track in Sydney, Australia yesterday when jockey Blake Shinn's trouser elastic snapped as he rode Miss Royale toward the finish line.
Even with his backside on full display, he managed to finish second, right in front of a horse named Modesty.
This stuff you can't make up.
And while it was embarrassing, it didn't affect him much. He won the last race of the day on a horse named Eisenhower.
