Andy and I just took in a Cubs game together. The Cubs defeated the reigning champion Giants 4-3, but not after some come-to-be-expected drama from the Cubs bullpen.
We entered the 9th inning leading 2-0 thanks to solo homers by David DeJesus (which the announcer pronounced Da-Hey-Juice) and Starlin “Still No Walks” Castro. You may [...]
The Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Rose Parade have both passed us by for another year. As a kid, I used to enjoy watching a good parade. I liked all the different character balloons, and the moving floats always fascinated me. It’s pretty impressive what some people can do with a float-load of flower petals. [...]
Several months ago, I participated in a trade bait draft over at The Daily Dimwit’s place. At the time, I wasn’t actively trading, so that I could catch up on my backlog a bit more. Still, I wanted to get in on it, because there were several hits I was hoping to snag for my [...]
Hopefully most of you are familiar with the concept of Box Buster Bingo (aka BoBuBingo).
It’s a game run by Crackin Wax (who you may remember from my product review back in October). He opens a box of cards and you follow along with a bingo card he created previously. If you get a Bingo, then [...]
I’m not a poker player.
Sure, I’ve played poker. I think everyone that went to college in the early 2000s played poker. Poker was everywhere in our society. ESPN made it a “sport” (which it’s not). Celebrities would play it on television and people actually watched. The residual effects are still being seen with Annie [...]
It’s a phrase we’ll hear many times throughout our lives. Most of the time the way it’s uttered is riddled with cliche. It’s small talk. You could be discussing something as mundane as your weekend plans on a Wednesday and that co-worker chimes in “Good things come to those who wait.”
Right. Thanks for that.
This is it. The end of an era. Or at least a group break.
Before we get into it, I’ll let you all know that I’ll be working on packaging and shipping out the cards this week. It can be something of an involved process, but you can be assured I pack things well. I’ll [...]
What’s the next box on our list? Elements, my dear break watchers.
This is why I’m not a professional writer.
This is how mini boxes should be done
It’s worth mentioning each and every time, all of these boxes are courtesy of our good friends and Community Break Sponsor: BASEBALL CARD EXCHANGE
For every Community Break, I try to find one product that’s full of legends or Hall of Famers. It’s a way to fill out the under performing pre-expansion teams that people don’t like to claim and give people a chance to get some cool cards of players they don’t see a whole lot.
Are you ready to take a trip back in time? I hope so, because we’re opening 1999 Upper Deck Retro.
Keep your fingers crossed that our time traveling is more like “Back to the Future” and less like “Blast From the Past.”
How has "cool" not become passe slang by now?
It’s worth mentioning [...]
