They posted the 4 finalists on the Kawasaki website tonight, and apparently the request by the Kawasaki Public Relations for a 'short statement' was interpreted differently by each of us. There's lots of 'blah, blah, blah' from each of the other three, but at this point I'm all about throwing down. I've known for a couple of weeks now, and there have been a couple of hiccups behind the scenes, but suffice it to say I'm ready to go learn, apply what I learn, and crush the opposition.

I'm cross-posting this on all the forums where I had people voting for me, with a most heartfelt 'THANK YOU' to all of you who voted, liked, shared, and otherwise facebook and forum posted in order to get me here. Thank you all!
