matthew mcnutt is a good guy — no, a great guy (he’s the one in the maine shirt, 2nd from the left in the photo). he’s been a youth worker for a handful of years, and is active in online youth worker circuits (like youth ministry exchange, the best message boards for youth workers, and even as a regular commenter here at ysmarko.com). after i posted sometime back about my cleanse, matthew emailed me suggesting we do our own version of the tv show “the biggest loser” as some kind of connection with the national youth workers convention this year. i didn’t think it fit (no pun intended), but matthew wasn’t deterred one bit. he went and applied to be on the real tv show, not some little youth workers version we could have cooked up. and he made it.
