Scott Parsons on Wrestling: It Takes a Family

Before the real fighting got underway at last night's NorCo Council meeting, Scott Parsons stepped down from the dais to recognize four wrestling stars on their way to bigger and better things. Saying that he wanted to draw attention to some of the good things happening locally, Parsons admitted he was once a wrestling ref. "Yes, I did throw people out of gyms," he confessed. As long as he never tells Bethlehem Mayor John Callahan, Parsons should be OK.

Parsons noted most of these young men been have been wrestling for many years. This means their parents have sacrificed untold hours carting them to practices, matches and tournaments.

"It takes a family to do this," he observed. He's absolutely right, no matter what sport. At this time of year, many moms and dads are spending several nights every week, surrounding baseball diamonds, not because they love baseball, but because they love their children.
Scott Parsons (yes, he is standing, too) introduces Aaron Bradley, Nazareth High School, rated the second best heavyweight wrestler in the country. Aaron went 37-1 this year, and is 113-19 overall.  
Saucon Valley's Ray O'Donnell, state champ, went 44-3 this year, and is on his way to Princeton

Becahi's Daren Cruz, rated #3 in the country in his weight group, will attend Lehigh U
Pen Argyl's Racciato, 44-0  in the 145 lbs. weight group this year, is on his way to U.  Pitt.

Scott Parsons threw John Callahan out of a wrestling match? Are you for real?

That's not what he said, but he did say he threw people out of gyms.

Who hasn't thrown John Callahan out of a wrestling match,a bar, a brothel, etc.

These poor guys were not forced to sit through a county council meeting to get their recognition, were they?

No. The were able to leave right away.

So you are saying that instead of Scott Parsons throwing out John Callahan, he threw out these kids right away??? What manners!!!

Now I know why the COAF supported this man. And here I thought he was an up and comer! Disgraceful!!!

Speaking about games, was the Fake Rev. at the latest council meeting last night?

Don't put limits on what you eat as much as you do how much you are eating. Besides, people who are drinking enough fluids is a day usually have clearer complexion so drink up. Another item to consider is to buy resistance bands, which help with stretching and yoga.

He has not been there for the past 4 meetings. But I am sure he watched the video.
