One of the lights in the mat area got knocked loose during a dodgeball game and was hanging by only two hooks, so Matt decided to fix it before practice last Thursday. They couldn't get a ladder in there because it could potentially damage the mats, but I think Matt came up with a pretty ingenious solution to that.:)

Watching that video was the first time in his life that sarah prayed:

"Please let him fall, God, please! I don't wanna have to fight him & I can't think up any other fake injuries. Please let him fall!!!!"

:scared0011: I'm with Arron, that was NUTS! And forget what Dana would say, what about Audra?

Men! :fryingpan:

For pete's sake, invest in a heavy duty tarp to protect the mats and a building maintenance guy to protect MATT! :rolleyes:

I'm sure his wife doesn't know he does this at the gym! Oh I just remembered they put those little mats for safety under him I'm sure he'd be fine if he fell 15 ft. :laugh:

For Ben, work is Matt-Hughes.com. That other "job" he's got is just a little something on the side to camoflouge (sp?) his "real" job. :laugh:

A man that is not afraid to work! Ouch, he was wearing a cup, right?

The way he was straddling that rope at first, kind of made me cringe!:laugh:

He climbs and moves like a large feline. I've often said it, but videos like this proove it isnt just when he's fighting...its when he's climbing or sorta hanging from the ceiling...or farming...thats when I saw it...I remember seeing him hoisted up on some kinda forklift truck to repair something I think...its no less nerve recking to watch a video as it is to see it in person...but like a cat, I suspect if he fell, he'd land on his feet....or bounce...cats bounce aswell :laugh:

Cool idea on how to get up there. In the future i would suggest using a large piece of plywood to put under the ladder to do that job. However this way looked like more fun!:laugh:

I can't watch the video from work, but I'm guessing he climbed the rope?

We just put a piece of carpet under the ladder when we need to change lights. :)
Of course, we don't have climbing ropes. Otherwise, we might try that method.
