As you all know Matt Cole(Matt76) was killed Dec/'08. We had a comp for him to benefit the local JFL team. This past weekend we held the 1st Matt Cole Appliance Games. It was covered by WAND TV, NBC affliate. I post this link here because I knew Matt posted here often (Matt76)

Saw it on the news last night, Roger! Great segment but they sure did play some corny music to go along with it. (fixed your link, too, by the way)

BTW, notice the ALN shirt being worn by Wayne right at 2 minutes in. :thumbup:

That was awesome. It brought a tear to my eye. Damn, we are a lucky bunch.

It was a great time. Matt's whole family came in for it. His sister came from AZ and a brother from MN. Vin, I think we all had a tear in our eye sometime during the day. Matt's father competed and actually WON one event at 61 years old. Matt came from good stock, no doubt!

Death is never a good thing.

This was the best way I know of to remember Matt. I had a good time celebrating his life and I miss him.

Yes I did have an ALN shirt on. Hope people don't think thats where my bench belly came from!
