Thoughts on the first half

I know, I know, Still no Obak video. I'm working on it.

Anyway, there's a game going on. My thoughts:

Helluva drive by Peyton.

The Saints got smacked in the mouth and came right back up fighting.

Some of these commercials are scaring the crap out of me. I will not sleep well tonight.

Peyton can't beat the Saints if he doesn't have the ball.

Payton with an A is playing to win. Good for him.

The Who are basically CSI's theme song right now and that makes me sad.

Whoops, second half's starting, cards upcoming.

Kickoff - HOLY CRAP. GIANT SWINGING BRASS BALLS. Who Dat?

Ok. Cards now.

I looked around for a decent half price football blaster and found bupkis. UD Icons = bupkis as far as I'm concerned. I went to plan B and taveled to the flea market to pick up a dollar football brick. One problem: a few weeks ago there waqs a fire at the flea market. I didn't think much of it. It turned out to be in Card and Porn Museum with the dollar bricks' building. So he's gone, status of inventory is unknown. This made me very sad. I could have picked up a $10 junk wax rack thingy but decided not to waste my money. Got a couple of retail packs of Chicle to go with my Hobby pack instead. I'll be showing off the cards over the next few days. Here's three interesting ones that don't fit my plans for future posts.

Matt Forte Jersey


Got this in the Hobby pack. The shop owner gave me a weird look when I asked if this guy was any good. Hey, I've been out of Fantasy football for two years now. I just don't know these things anymore. Will trade for any relic with "Atlanta" on it. Except Thrashers. That's another post.

Bazooka Joe Back


Are there any normal minis in this set?? Out of three packs I got two Joes and a gold border. Weird. I'd like to see an Umbrella one though.

Amelia Earhart ERA ICONS


All three packs had one of these inserts and after the first two I was pretty pissed about it. This one I have no problems with. I'm a sucker for girls on cards though. Someone else posted the relic version with a stamp on it. Very nice-a.

Ok back to eating ribs and drinking bourbon and cokes while watching the game finishing that video!

End of quester three:

THIS IS A GREAT GAME!

Cheap bourbon is soooo much better with Coke.

NFL: to the greatest fans EVAR, Thank you.

HOW ABOUT THANKING US WITH A COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT YOU GREEDY FU%#&RS

Whoops, shoulda started Viniateri, Coltsies.

HOLY CRAP CHOCOLATE RAIN DURING THE SUPERBOWL! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Whoi Daaaaaaaaat! Conversion missed.  Last team with the ball wins this one.

In other news my 3 year old daughter is apparently a Saints fan. Not sure how to feel about that.

OVERRULED!!!! CONVERSION GOOD! THE SAINTS AREN'T CURSED! THERE'S HOPE FOR MY FALCONS!

PICK SIX!!!!!!! HOLY BLEEPING BLEEEEP!!!!


MARDI GRAS HAS STARTED EARLY THIS YEAR!!!!!!!!!111

TOM BENSON DANCES TONIGHT!!!! 


BOURBON STREET WILL ROCK FOR WEEKS!!!!!


WHO DAT!!!!!!!

Really nice Earhart. Good game. Many of the commercials scared us too. Older daughter is worried she won't sleep after that Vizio thing. Advertising needs to take a Valium or something. Go Saints!

Commercial roundup:

Favorite: Pretty much all the Intel commercials. Yes, I'm a geek.

Most Horrifying: Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland.

Most annoying: Screaming Denny's chickens.

The worst part were all the Doritos commercials. People apparently actually voted for those. I really don't want to see what lost in those polls.

The best part was the Saints winning, I guess, or Manning's creepy stalker face on the sidelines.

From what we could tell from our box break, the gold border is the standard mini and all the variations we pulled had a white border and the crazy back. I have no clue what the umbrella back looks like either. Check out our video if you're so inclined.

Superbowl commercials pretty much all sucked this year. Totally agree about the Doritos ads.

That Vizio commercial scared me too. Too many pantsless people and commercials with Jim Nantz in them. The Doritos ninja was win, as was the violin beaver or whatever it was. Nothing topped the Letterman/Oprah/Leno commercial though. Blew my freakin' mind.

Oh yah, the game was pretty good too.

I have a spare '05 Pack Wars Chippah jersey or any of three Michael Vick as a Falcon jersey cards to offer for the Forte if you need it, and if it hasn't been claimed yet.

Letting Ilya or whatever his name is go was to only thing the Thrashers could do from listening to the NHL Channel on XM Satelitte Radio. They offered the max they were allowed on one contract and 70 mill over 7 years on another. If he doesn't want to be there trade him.
My word is beerstl. Is blogger now owned by Budweiser?
