Matt Eastman, the son of Barbara and the late Dale Eastman, who manages the Victory Ranch near Park City and guides fly-fishing trips, is making his television debut on "Wanna Go Fishing?" a new ESPN television show that brings reality-based programming into the outdoor genre. Eastman has dedicated his life to fishing, and his house lies steps away from the Provo River. In the new show, he travels across the country searching for the ideal guest to join him for saltwater fishing action. The destination could be as far as the coast of Africa or as near as the Florida Keys. The guests never know their ultimate destination. The show is presented by West Marine and airs every Sunday morning at 5:30 a.m. on ESPN2 from January through June of 2006. Romp for Cancer On Saturday, Jan. 28, Tubbs snowshoes and the Salt Lake City affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation are teaming up for their fourth annual "Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer" snowshoe series at Mountain Dell Golf Course. The event is a snowshoe fun run as well as an easy snowshoe walk to raise money from the participants’ pledges as well as direct donations. All the money raised through each event goes to the Salt Lake City affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and is used to benefit breast cancer research, education and screening. Registration begins at 8 a.m. and the walk starts at 10 a.m. An optional 3K snowshoe "fun run" will start at 9:30 a.m., allowing enough time for participants to join their friends for the walk as well. Over 300 pairs of Tubbs snowshoes will be available free of charge on a first come, first served basis. Get there early, or rent or bring your own. The cost of the event is $18 in advance and $20 the day of the event.

He will have to forfeit his Calgary World Cup result. However, that will leave him with 250 World Cup points, which makes him the third ranked American in World Cup points. The USBSF nomination of Lund to the Olympic team will not change.
