This Blessed Day

Bikes line up in front of McGuirk Stadium

The weather this morning could not be any more blessed for a long motorcycle ride.   And with AFD Chaplain Bruce Arbour's official blessing under their belts the 19 riders who left from UMass McGuirk Stadium are sure to have a blessed ride over the 100+ mile course.

The blessing of the bikes

Jackass 3 -- named for David Bennett Sr.'s propensity to use it as a term of endearment with his many friends and family and not for the hijinks of the movie franchise -- raises money ($1,487) for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation in his memory.

If today is any indication, memories of David Bennett Sr. will live on for a very long time.
