He carefully curates the agendas and prints copies before the meetings. "I get quarterly invites which is life’s biggest honor," says his daughter.
Some write their daily to-do list on a notepad, while others make a mental note of them. But who goes out to neatly write and print discussion topics before heading out to meet friends at a bar? Mr. Riley is that guy, and we must take some commitment lessons from him.
He gets the discussion agenda printed for his weekly meet-up with friends, and the internet is here to applaud his efforts. Riley's daughter, @kenzianidiot on Twitter, revealed her dad's discussion agenda. Kenzi Enright shares the weekly insight from her dad's serious "board meetings" with his pals in a bar. In one of the many tweets to follow, she writes, "My dad goes to a bar with his friends every Friday, and he makes a list of discussion topics." The image attached to the Tweet depicts neatly printed conversation topics he whips up for his Friday bar meetings. His efforts impressed people on Twitter, as the post has more than 260k likes.

The discussion topics include Jordan Love, World Cup, and some heavy political stuff like China and Russia, and on a lighter note, an after-Christmas party with the boys. The last item on the list was the general discussion. We wonder what landed in the "general" category.

A tweet by Enright followed, and she shed light on some behind-the-scenes of the elaborate "board meeting". "Backstory: my dad and his friends have a ‘board meeting’ every Friday, and he texts the 'board members' if they have anything to put on the agenda," reads a tweet by Enright. "I get quarterly invites which is life’s biggest honor," quips Enright. TODAY reached out to Riley and his daughter about how the fame feels, and they said that they are beyond surprised. It feels unreal to them how a simple discussion list blew the internet.
"When I first shared his agendas on Twitter, I just did it because I thought it was cute and might make a handful of people chuckle," Enright says, "We have gotten so many responses from people that get a kick out of it, but we have also heard from people that took a lot of meaning from it, and that has been incredibly touching."
Some Twitter users applauded his effort to get it printed when he could have just scribbled it on a piece of paper. A Twitter user, @travischlepp, wrote, "Does your dad need more friends?" Another Twitter user, @AngrySkycrane, said, "THE BOYS. Dad sounds cool as hell." @ihatethiskid wanted to contribute to the list and wrote, "Can I submit some topics for their next discussion?"
The series did not end there. Enright has kept the tradition alive and posts regular updates from their weekly meetings. Enright says it has been going on for years, and her father is big on making such lists.

"I truly think it’s so cool to see how many people are invested and following along with us," Riley tells TODAY. "And we are all relieved to know that our years of training for that in this bar are finally paying off."

Enright updates Riley's fanbase with a new agenda almost every Friday. The fun banter of the daddy-daughter tradition has brought smiles to people in a strange turn of events. And Enright is not complaining. Kenzi concludes by saying, "I am so lucky to have grown up in a family where truly everyone is welcome, and everyone is considered family, and I know that can be pretty rare." She adds, "We have stumbled into creating a space where anyone following along can feel like they are part of our family and that has been so ridiculously meaningful. And hopefully, everyone continues to feel like they are part of the crew. Because really they are."
