Where I have been

I have been negligent in updating my blog since the end of August. No reason why, just work and life in general have been really busy. Since I last posted, the Lions finally won a game, Michigan looks like they will go to a Bowl game this year, and the Tigers gacked away a Division title (just like 2006). I would celebrate by posting images, but it takes forever for an image to post from home using dial up, so just bear with me as I ramble today.

I celebrated the Lion win by breaking down and purchasing a pack of Philadelphia. I like these cards, but probably will not try and complete the set due to SPs, and stuff. Rack packs seem to be the way to go with this set if you are trying to get the 200 card main set. The first card in my pack was Brian Westbrook with the photo showing his jockstrap getting stretched out. Not an image that I am used to seeing on football cards.

The Tigers exceeded my expectations this year, but the way they ended the season was disappointing. They should have been a third place team, but made it to a playoff game. Next year should see a regression to the mean (third place) as Jackson and Porcello will probably not repeat the numbers from this year.

Card collecting has also been put on hold as I get ready for the holidays. I have stayed away from card shows and purchases (shows are not hard to stay away from as there are not many around here). My next purchase will be the 09 Topps factory set. I am also waiting on cards in the mail from the Mojo Hand after winning a contest over there, and Dave's Trick or Treat. Last year he sent some Lions and Bears to go along with Tigers. What will this year hold? Don't know but can't wait to find out.

  1. Glad to hear you're OK! I'm not much of a football fan so I'll be concentrating on getting all my summertime trades and purchases logged in and organized. Also watching MLB TV and waiting for an announcement as to who our new manager will be in Tribe Town.
