Thank you to the many supporters, well wishers and those that helped me get started! It looked like a mountain when I started, but I got there!

Thank you All!!

Cue Rocky theme...

I'm glad you proved all the haters wrong, Steve. Well done my good friend!

I wish I could say more, but really, I know what this means to you, and quite frankly, I don't want to ramble. I'm so happy for you, bud!!!

#13 3 years ago

great news my friend. congrats!

Congrats! In the end it doesn't sound like it's owed too much to charity, and for that you took enough grief, so kudos for the work involved on your end. I hope it proves every bit the catalyst and sustainer for a steady upswing in your life, as you hope it to be.

I believe it will. The donations at the beginning really amped me up, knowing I had support out there, the negatives really got to me, until I started the ignore use. I could only see the positives that way, and in that mess there were a ton of positives. It took a lot to get here, but I did it, and I am so happy I made it.

I have not even sold a baseball card yet, so that will be next and put a nice dent in the medical bills!

Thank you everyone!

Above everything else, at least the haters should know it has encouraged you to CONTINUE selling like you were to save up a part of the machine to make a difference for your lives. Sounds like it had a good effect, to me.

Great news, I'm excited for you!

The baseball cards got you the last $500? Gratz either way.

No, I have not sold a single card yet, I am waiting for them all to come back from PSA, then they all go off to an auction place.

Congrats Steve!

Congratulations Steve! I knew you could do it!

#27 3 years ago

Congrats man!

Hope you have a blast with it!

#28 3 years ago

A down vote. Really?

#29 3 years ago

Sour grapes.

#30 3 years ago

Yeah, I expected one or two down votes by people I never talked to or ever had any interaction.. whatever! The champ is coming home!

Thanks for all the congratulations!

And again, thanks to all the supporters, you guys were the best through the whole process!

#31 3 years ago

Great news Steve...enjoy it.

#32 3 years ago

So glad to hear this - take lots of pictures when you bring it home, Steve!

#33 3 years ago

Congrats! Glad you didn't let the haters and naysayers get you sidetracked. What a great story! Could be a great sub-plot for Rocky 8? Hey, you never know!

#34 3 years ago

Can't wait to see pics of it back in your possession, great story and fun thread to follow. Thanks for posting.

#36 3 years ago

OH... do not worry PICTURES will be taken and posted!!! Lots of them!!

Thanks for the support guys!

My uncle Lonnie and I watched these movies so many times when I was young. We would act out various scenes. Lonnie was always the best Clubber Lang.

My trumpet teacher in grad school played lead trumpet (the high trumpet parts) on Rocky III and IV. We talked several times about his role in the music. He was one of the greatest musicians and human beings that I have had the pleasure of knowing. "Doc" died of cancer while I was studying with him.

Your story hit a big nostalgic soft spot with me.

I'm a firm believer that putting yourself in a happy place can aid in the healing process, physically and mentally. This game could be just the ticket. Cheers again, dude.

As long as they dont come beating on his machine, although, that might be even better for this Rocky fan hah.
