This is a great article about Dustin and his Dad. They are two great people and they deserve nothing but the best.

Why be so negative about our own neighbors having fun and competing together, father and son, in a contest involving "intelligence, speed and strength"? I can't wait to see it. Yes, television as a whole is enough to make us all into Luddites! But let's make an exception here. GO DUSTIN and DAD!! Get the popcorn!

Just wanted to address why the Avilas weren't on last Tuesday's airing of "My Dad is Better Than Your Dad." Here is Sandra Avila's response: Dustin and Rick may be on Monday, March 10th or March 17th at 9:00 p.m. this is still not confirmed; however, we do know we are NOT on Monday, Feb. 25th.  Here is the NBC link you may want to look at. www.NBC.com/Schedule
