Hey Purdman,

You seemed to be even more nervous than John. From what I could tell, you were always within earshot of a match but just could not stand to watch. Each time they ended, you were right there to shake John's hand though.

I agree with Timberly, you now know a bit of what it is like to be watching someone with whom you have an interest in. You may have had this before but I could see it down at the U.S. Open.

Sorry about the wife. You said so many nice things about her in our discussions at the tourny. I hope she is not serious.

All the best to you Purdman!!!

We look forward to sweating matches with you in the future.

My friend Heath, SOMEBODY HAD TO DO IT!!! John is to good of a person to let a little change rob him of his place in history. It was my pleasure and I wouldn't have minded if we went 2 and out. I had a gut feeling about John and I was right. I didn't know who he was or how he played. It was the way he asked. From the heart buddy. That's what got him there.

Just going through my pics and found this one of Purdman getting his first chance to shake John's hand after he won. (Sorry about the quality. I forget to set the quality higher when I changed batteries in the camera)

Man, I wish I could! I have a full time job for a great company. I put in my 40 just like everyone else and enjoy it. I honestly don't believe that my $1,300 stake entitles me to any more than I have recieved. I got some cash, had the best experience of my life, made some wonderful friends and found myself. That's plenty for me Edwin. Johns the man, and I wish him much success.

Didn't mean to come across that way Purdy. More referring to the lucky combination! I'll try and keep him safe here. We will be staying at the Ambassador Hotel if he cares to join us.
