WATCH: Andy Reid Takes the Ice Bucket Challenge

Part of a fund-raiser for ALS research.

Oh, sure, everybody’s moved on. But isn’t there part of you that would still get a thrill at watching former Eagles coach Andy Reid get doused with a bucket of ice and water?

Yes?




CBS Philly, which passes along the video, explains:

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has gone viral. What is it? The Ice Bucket Challenge is to help spread awareness in fighting ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis aka “Lou Gehrig’s disease”, a disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement.

If you are nominated to complete the challenge you have 24 hours to pour a bucket of ice water on your head, post the video on social media, and tag three more people — or you must donate $100 in fighting ALS.

We understand many people are taking the ice bath and paying the check. Which makes no sense. But! It's a great cause.
