Default Extreme Makeover fans?

They just finished up 2 miles down the road from me. It was kinda cool to watch the whole thing unfold. Had alot of friends that volunteered.

The OSU Baseball team (2-time College World Series champs) started 'de-construction' with baseballs and bats.

Katie and I drove by the house yesterday. It'* pretty cool.

It'* not an often-travelled road, and school is out (there'* a school about 100 feet away). They had signs up. Most of us just chose an alternate route.

No idea when it will air, but I gaurantee you'll see more than just a few people I know in the crew and the crowd.

Yup they spare no expense on that show! Now I'll be watching with more interest and looking for the "Zilla" in the background shots! You should have driven (or whined) past the site during the taping.......that would have been cool to have our first TV stunt car!

I love the show, they always pick good people to do it for, but one question about that show is how the heck these lucky people pay taxes on their new mansions? I've had the discussion before, wondering how long people get to enjoy their new house until they can't afford it anymore.
