I remember them saying that when I went to the wrestling events when I was a child, but I don't remember hearing it the other night. The quilt that I had made out of Road Dogg (aka Jesse James) fabric, turned out very nice and it was used in the raffle at the event. The manager purchased it from me and then raffled it off to the audience, after presenting it in the ring. I met with Road Dogg before the match and he signed the quilt before it was presented. He is a super sweet guy. We had loads of fun Saturday evening (Feb 12, 2011) and they allowed us to set up a table of my pictures, cards and promotion items. I spoke to several people who were interested in custom quilts or Bible covers and handed out loads of cards. Who'd a thought - at a wrestling match!?

Road Dogg himself!

Not really sure. They sold a lot of tickets at $1 each, so I'm sure they did well.
