John Riggins has been promoting his next venture, a huntin’ and cookin’ show on the Sportsman Channel, for several months.
As you’ll recall, he suddenly stopped doing Redskins commentary for WTOP and MASN last winter. Shortly thereafter, he announced a new show, for which he would “range the field, rove the flood, and climb the mountain’s crest every week, looking for fur, fish, fowl, and fun. Then we’ll take to the kitchen and let my 120,000 BTU Montague Grizzly transform it into a feast.”
The show is scheduled (?) to begin appearing in January 2013, but it took another step closer to reality (?) with a press release this week. From the release:
Sportsman Channel the leader in outdoor TV for the American sportsman, announced today that NFL Hall of Famer and former New York Jets and Washington Redskins running back John Riggins has agreed to host a new celebrity-loaded series — “Riggo on the Range” — scheduled to begin airing January 2013 on the cable network.
“Riggo on the Range” will treat viewers to a culinary twist on hunting, featuring guest celebrities from food, entertainment, music and sports worlds. Each segment will follow Riggins around the world in pursuit of extraordinary hunting, outdoor and cooking adventures.
Can’t be any worse than flinging verbal assaults at the Shanahans on a weekly basis. Riggo has posted several video previews of the show, including this one, which is where I grabbed these images.
