    i absolutely LOVE the updates that this website has. i have been watching the show since 2007. my heart is so heavy for jake anderson and his father. but i think it would be safe to say (for the people who don’t know) that keith anderson was a United States Marine also. alot of times when i see postings about jake’s dad, that gets left out. most of the men in my family were (are) in the U.S. Marine Corps.. my brother was a Cpl. and still has 2 more years of inactive duty. He signed up for 4 yrs. active and 4 years inactive. he served 2 tours in Iraq (before Iraq is like it is now) .. thanks for the posts and updates!

    Thanks for the info tamara. I hope that Jake finds the closure that he must surely be looking for.

    I’m there – Pinchers is 5 minutes from my house. I’m so excited because I have not met Matt or Jake yet but have met Edgar once at EPCOT. Wish me luck on getting there early and getting some good pics!

    Hope you have a blast!

    I did have a great time; although, it was a 2 1/2 hour wait to get to the guys! They were great as usual. Love to upload a pic if you want to post.

    Oh – and I know this probably isn’t the place for this – but I have to update to my new email address. I changed it when I typed this response – hope that’s OK?

    I’m glad to hear you made it! …And I cant believe the wait time, lol! That’s alot of standing around!

  7. Lori says:

    It was worth it! Pincher’s had some great bands playing, so we had entertainment all night long. The guys signed for about 4 1/2 hoursw – now that’s alot of standing around! Like I said, they’re great guys -taking all that extra time for their fans!
