We’ve been down this road before.
It’s a good road. It’s a fun-filled road with interesting treasures to be discovered. A road laced with history.
But this is a fragile road because it’s made of cardboard.
It’s also a never-ending road to nowhere, because I don’t know what kind of metaphor or analogy or introduction [...]
We almost adopted a cat recently. We were planning to wait until we get a house, but while shopping for our parents’ pets, we saw this certain cat. He was 9 years old and was given up by his previous owners simply because they had a kid and didn’t want to take care of both.
Why am I so excited about college basketball? A few reasons.
1) My Chicago Bulls aren’t likely to be too fun to watch until Derrick Rose returns from injury.
2) I think the college game is simultaneously infinitely more fun and infinitely more frustrating to watch due to the raw passion and hustle and lack [...]
Let’s compare something shall we?
McDonald's was a little early with the label
Frank Thomas – Two Time MVP Award Winner
2 MVP awards means 2 pictures
Not so fast, 80s graphic!
Tony Gwynn – Zero-Time MVP Award Winner
I know these two were never in direct competition for the award, [...]
It took much longer than it ever should have, but Community Gum has now reached the 500 post milestone.
It’s a momentous occasion that’s sure to go down in the annals of card bloggery as “another blog post.” Try not to get too teary-eyed.
Yes, 500 posts. If this were the Hall of Fame, our [...]
Our blog was down for who knows how long for who knows why after I posted the first of these. Here’s hoping the same fate doesn’t befall round two.
If you missed the first part, and don’t feel like going back, just know that I’m very grateful for the thoughtfulness and generosity of bloggers and [...]
How about that Walking Dead season finale? The first half of the season was terrible, and still not wild about all the inconsistencies and random changing of the rules on the fly, but at least we got a nice action packed ending.
Oh, right. Cards. This is going to be a big one. Get ready.
There hasn’t been much movement on this blog for a while. I don’t like to see it sit and languish like this, but sometimes you have no other choice.
I could go through all the reasons why the posts each week have been slim-to-none, but why bore you with the same old stuff. You people [...]
If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted in a week, maybe what you’re about to see will explain it. You’re going to be treated to a very short introduction this time, because I’m writing 3,000 words or so overall on this doozy of a trade. Things like this take time you know.
The cards below [...]
All that talk…
All that talk yesterday about taking my blogging seriously and I committed an error. Well, if you go back and proof-read it, I’m sure you’ll find several, but that’s not what what I’m talking about.
It’s an error that could easily go unnoticed by everyone else in the world but me. I [...]
