I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving! To me Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful to the Lord for everything He has given me and enjoy spending time with my family.

On Thanksgiving I will be on SPIKE TV eating cranberry sauce at the "kids table". With a top 3 finish I can make it back to the "big boy" table and compete in the SPIKE TV Finals with the likes of these two characters and others. Wish me luck.
