Tomorrow night people from the Early Show are coming to visit me. They are going to spend a day in school with me and then come to my house. Soon after, they are flying my mom and me to New York to be on the show live.
I will give more information on Wednesday.

I was tricked. The show will not be on Friday. While they were filming I got a call from Harry Smith, one of the anchors of the Early Show. Friday night he is taking me and mom to a Mets game at the new stadium. The Mets are putting me in the front row and Harry said the team is waiting for me. They will tape some of this and put it with the rest of the day. I will give the air date as soon as they tell me.
Anything anyone wants me to tell Carlos Beltrone(Astro fans)?

Have fun my man... As far as Beltran goes, I think your mom would slap my mouth for what I would want you to say to "Mr. Mole".

Well you could tell him that he and the rest of the Mets did such a great job of finishing the last two years.

UPDATE: Show will not be Monday but will be on Wednesday (at this particular time anyway) just received a call. Seems like they did so much filming the producer stated they needed more time to get it together.
Next update-could be anytime.
Right now Gary is sitting with Harry Smith and spent time with the entire Mets team.
More to come.:brando:

I found this on the website

Wednesday morning we kick off our month-long series “Early’s Angels” with the heart-warming story of a young man from Houston. Sixteen-year-old Gary Lynn was born with cerebral palsy, but he’s not letting that stop him from helping others like him. He’s created a foundation to support research for cerebral palsy. Gary’s passion is sports, and while he doesn’t get to play the, he dreams of one day sitting front row at a professional sporting event. So, we granted Gary that wish and got him front row tickets to see the Mets play in New York with our very own Harry Smith.Tune in to meet this inspiring teen and hear his amazing story of generosity.

I saw it this morning. They did a wonderful job.
Andrea said they are going to send her a copy of the show.
I tried to tape it at school and it wouldn't work.

Gary,
That was so cool what they did for you and even better what you do for other people. I have not been able to meet you in person but I was in the original group of the Blue Crew, but living in Austin and some tough times I sold my tix to Sandy. I hope that one day I can meet you in person. I truly enjoyed the video and it brought tears of happiness to my eyes.
Have a gr8 trip and enjoy every minute.
