Freezing my tuckus off for a good cause

(UPDATED) Come back around noon on Saturday as I and the rest of our 'Freezedom of the Press' plunge team will be getting ready for the big event and giving live updates in our "Cover It Live" player.

I had to look up the definition of “tuckus” although I was pretty sure I had the right spelling and the right word. One search revealed a “tuckus” is “A non-offensive description for a human posterior.” That’ll work.

The mind must start going at the age of 36 because I don’t know what I am thinking participating in this year’s Polar Plunge for Special Olympics. The local event coordinator Tracey Susana asked me one day if I was participating in this year’s event and for some reason the word “sure” came out of my mouth.
The event is Saturday, January 28, 2012 at the Thirsty Pony and I am scheduled to work that day, so why not bring all of you along for my moment of embarrassment as I plunge into ice-cold water. There is also a costume contest prior to the event so any suggestions, not obscene, you have please post them below.
Some of my co-workers are joining me on our team "Freezedom of the Press" to raise money for Special Olympics. If you would like to donate to our team, or start your own, go HERE and submit a donation.
I will be doing a live blog of the morning leading up to the plunge with photos and video of whatever I can find. You can watch the live blog during the the day of the plunge by coming back here.


Polar Plunge - Freezedom of the Press




Oh No,

    the jig is UP, buckeye cable is as slow, if not slower than ATT dialup.


How fitting that Andy Dunn and son Caleb are in the background. Little did we all know that it would be Andy's last plunge. RIP #2083


The yiddish is spelled tuches.  It means "that which you are going to freeze during your polar plunge."   But you're doing it for a great cause, so more power to you!

I heard there was frozzen pop-cycles ready to jump in the water.


Really, "thehartleys says", I went to yiddishdictionaryonline and "tuches" came up NO MATCH COULD BE FOUND.

However, tuckus was found in urban dictionary.


this Polar Bear plunge is nothing but a bunch of overweight slobs getting wet. Go back to you mud hole and graze.



WOW!! That's ALL you got to say about this??? How about ALL money made goes to a great cause?? Obviously your bitter about the fact that ALL you are is a FANTASY football guru.........GEEEEZZZZ!!! You must be as miserable with your life as Taxpayer...........


RIP Andy....I know you were looking down and smiling on this day!!!!
