Matt, thank you.

When I got home Sunday, my 9 year old son asked me if I still liked you after your loss after dirving up to see you fight.

I was a little shocked and said "Of course I do."

Then he said to me.. "Good because, if you never lose, your not fighting the right people right?".. ever since we heard that on TUF.. it's kind of a "mantra" in dealing with coming up a little short.

He said he watched the fight with my wife and thought your music was cool, and that got upset a little when you lost, but when you got up and saw that you were ok, he was better.

I am very proud to have my son think you are the greatest! I am proud to call myself a fan.

I hope you and your family have a great holiday season!

Here're some pics of what Matt and Audra were doing on Thanksgiving morning. Matt and his wife were 2 of the volunteers from the church family who worked at the community Thanksgiving meal that served over 400 people. They worked the early shift: cutting pies, filling cups with cranberry sauce, getting drinks ready, and finishing set up.

Every Thanksgiving the area churches put the event on for anyone who would like to enjoy their Thanksgiving meal with others. By keeping it real general they hope to pick up more people who would be eating the meal alone or who couldn't pay for such a meal. They fed over 400 people this year. Matt and Audra were on the early shift (8:30 AM) this year. After having a tough loss, Matt was still out there a few days later volunteering.
