    I thought it was really cool watching this live last year. I wish them luck this year, and with HGSS, I really think they can do it!

    Never really paid attention to this last year. I suppose if they were to complete it it would be a feat worthy of complimenting, so I'm rooting for them to do it. After all, how difficult can it be? All they have to do is not sleep for three days and job's a gd'n.

    Good luck to them! Should be a hard task, but I'm sure they can do it. Might be fun to watch it too.
