hey there - just want to check in and wish everyone a happy thanksgiving!!! i hope you all get to be with your families and can enjoy the day. we get to spend another thanksgiving on the road. it really sucks having to be away from the family but that's part of the gig. i'd give anything to be able to be home but what are you gonna do?

one good thing about the day though... i'll be going to the cowboy's game. i have friend (marc colombo) who plays for the cowboy's and he lined us up with some tix for the game. we got to do this a few years ago also and it was a lot of fun. we brought the bus and tailgated before the game. looks like we'll be doing the same thing this year. so i won't be able to be with my family but we will be able to watch a football game - not as good but it will have to do. it's a pretty cool coincidence that we're near dallas on thanksgiving again but we are!!

funny story about marc colombo. i met him about 5 years ago or so when he was playing for the bears. he was introduced to me by a friend of ours who worked for elektra records at the time and came to a couple of gigs. he actually made it into the video for "so far away". if you watch the video he's the guy who they show his head and then start to pan down and about the shoulder's you see jon and then about his elbow you see me. needless to say - he's a big dude!! anyhoo, thanks for the tix buddy!! and again - i hope everyone has a great thanksgiving!!!

Thanks for the warm wishes Mike, I wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving as well. Yes it does suck to not be home with your loved ones but on the bright side, your out on a successful tour doing what you love to do. Better to be busy than be at home wishing you had work. You'll be home efore you know it. Well enjoy the game and have a turkey dog or something. Ill see you guys on the 18th, I get to meet you guys so im excited.

Hey Mike happy thanksgiving to you and the guys. Even tho you can't be with your families atleast you got to see them a few weeks ago when u played at Mohegan, and got to do an early thanksgiving. I know it's not the same as it being on the actual day but your doin what you love and you get to go to a Dallas game. I'm so jealous cuz I'm a huge T.O fan. I know alot of ppl talk junk bout him and how he's a "me" player but I think he's doin a lot better with his attitude in Dallas. I followed him from SF to Dallas cuz he's a great player. I mean after all he is #2 in the league in TD receptions behind the great Jerry Rice.Anyways I hope you guys enjoy the game and I'll be watchin. Thanx again for a great show at Mohegan. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! xoxoxoxo

Mike, I feel you my family is to far away to have any kind of get together. I have to say the show in Lowell was off the hook. Yes that's you on my picture Bad ASS! I wonder how many sick pictures people have of you guys that you may never see. You look all majestic.

Kick ass show as always man cant wait till you come back around.
