“It is bone chilling sometimes when the wind is blowing, so if you don’t bundle up, you will freeze,” he said.

Pennsbury has been trying to literally take The Ridge for a couple years.

“They actually took one and hung it up in their bleachers during the game when Neshaminy traveled to their stadium,” McMahon said, recalling when a previous version of  “The Ridge” sign was stolen.

Asked if there would be extra precaution taken, McMahon said, “All you can does tie it. If you they want it, they will get it.”
