Ice Bucket Challenge!!

Well.... after being challenged by about 74 different people... it was finally time for me to accept my mission.  The Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS!!  My wife and I decided to have a little fun and film it in super epic SLO-MO!



Right after we took the challenge, and we were drenched with water, one of our neighbors came over and told us tearfully that she had lost a couple family members to ALS.  She thanked us for helping to spread awareness for this terrible disease.  That was one of the most amazing things I've ever had happen to me.  Here were are being goofballs dumping ice water on ourselves, and this woman comes up and thanks us.  This viral trend is truly amazing.  So much money has been raised for ALS this year.

And yes... we are also donating some money.

I decided I really needed to do this after watching Pete Frates' story.  As a lifelong baseball nut, this story really breaks my heart.  Pete is a true hero.
