The man cave update:

The contest officially ends November 19.  I am still crossing my fingers as the competition is pretty good.  I still ask anyone who would to go and throw some mad props out to me by voting for my video here by giving it five big stars and a sweet action comment.  I find myself dreaming of the man cave quite often…big tv, video game, surround sound, workout center.  In other words, I’d have something in my house to do!  Anyways, head on over to http://www.iwantmymancave.com/view-the-weekly-winners.aspx and vote for me on week number two.  And for those who care, I found this press release online of when I won.  I think it’s funny.
