CSC's ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

I was called out recently by a colleague of mine about taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Guess what? I did, with the eager help of two charming ladies. Here's the video, in which I challenge a prominent member of this here Saints community to do it too! :-)

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) also know as Lou Gehrig's Disease is a horrible ailment that slowly takes away your motor functions and often leads to death. As Saints fans, we're unfortunately intimately aware of what it can do, given that former Black and Gold standout Steve Gleason is battling this terrible disease.

As is often the case with neuronal diseases (Alzheimer's is another one), it takes a lot of time and money to find a cure. The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is a cool way to grab people's attention about this disease and remind us all of the fact that there's no effective remedy yet.

So if you can, please donate at http://www.alsa.org/ even a little bit helps and let's keep this chain going and if you take the challenge, post your video/comments on this thread and let's contribute to beating ALS.

Now without further ado, here's yours truly, taking the challenge!
