Short term it's going to stay there.  Long term, I'm looking to get a house to keep everything in a specific room.

If you're apartment hunting, it could be more of a help than a hindrance.  Having a place to stash your collection and whatever else while you're moving things like furniture and everything else in your life isn't necessarily a bad thing.

I move things to my storage unit when it's convenient and I'm headed in that general direction.  It's worked out really well.  However, the fact that I have a 10' x 10' storage unit nearly full, and it's mostly my toy collection is kind of frightening.

Climate contolled storage is the answer!  Just check your local yellow pages, and be sure to check the place out before you sign any kind of contract.

Teams invite like a hundred guys to camp.  I think it's a fair bet that he might get invited.  Thing is, he's going to be competing for a roster spot against guys who played Division 1 ball and were undrafted this year, veterans who've been cut by their teams, etc.  In terms of football knowledge and skills, he's definitely behind in this race.  Besides, doesn Minnesota have enough Prima Donnas in Randy Moss alone?

I know what you're saying.  But I think owners wouldn't necessarily be into him from a marketing standpoint.  I definitely think they would catch a lot of flack from their football people.  Especially since in this era of NFL parity, almost any team can really compete for the Vince Lombardi trophy.

I definitely think the guy has serious athletic ability.  He was an NCAA wrestling national champ, right?  But his absence from any kind of organized football since high school is a huge strike against him.  I think a route like the Arena league, the CFL or NFL Europe would be the most likely scenario for him before he plays a single down in the NFL.  Could he get signed and get invited to an NFL training camp?  Possibly, but I would be really surprised to see him make any team's roster.

Now, upon looking at the article, I'm even more unsure about the guy.  He'd most likely play DE.  Honestly, I think that may be more of a skill position than someone like him is ready for.  He would really need to work on his footwork in a big way.  There's also a lot more to that position than just pass rushing.  It's about reading the offense, and trying to figure out pass versus run.  I definitely don't think he'd be a serious pass rush threat to top flight O linemen like Runyon, Pace, Turley or Ogden.  I think if he were lighter and faster, he might have more options in playing LB, but he'd need to shed like 30 odd pounds for that.

From reading the article, I'd be surprised if the guy could make an NFL practice squad.  He hasn't got any NCAA football experience, and hasn't played since High School.  It seems like kind of a longshot to me.  He could always go for the CFL or the Arena League.  I'm definitely surprised he didn't try to get on any of the NFL Europe rosters.  Add in the motorcycle accident injuries, and it doesn't look good to me.

YES.  This is why I have a 10' x 10' climate controlled storage unit.

This looks like a wait and see situation to me.  I hope they don't leave the She Hulk out on the cold when it comes to the FF though.

All of the OTC I've seen at regular retail have been basic lightsabers.  Everything else I've seen has been at import shops.

I think a Royal Guard could be a strong possibility for the EPISODE III Unleashed line.

The rest of it is that the "establishment" is afraid of him.  They want to keep him on the fringe in an effort to keep him from showing the American public how much they're getting screwed over.

Michael Moore does a good enough job keeping himself on the fringe.

I wouldn't pay to see this movie, but I'll watch it for free, like I did with Bowling for Columbine.

Did I ask for your opinion stalker boy?

If it's such bunk, then produce some evidence as to why you think it's not accurate.  Christopher Hitchins wrote a good article on it, and it's probably one of the better assessments of the movie.  He's a credible journalist.  Are you?  Or is it bunk because someone told you so?

Is some of what's in the movie true?  Damn straight.  Is some of it stilted to support Moore's viewpoint?  It's likely.

I think everyone should see this movie just to see what this war is really like.  It gets cleaned up a lot in network news editing before you see it on your tv at home.  It's time for the American public to get a little reality and see how distasteful the truth is.

The real question everyone should be asking is why are all these people trying to slander Michael Moore?  Some of it is to spin things to their way of thinking.  The rest of it is that the "establishment" is afraid of him.  They want to keep him on the fringe in an effort to keep him from showing the American public how much they're getting screwed over.

Someone mentioned this possibility to me:  Rams Bettis.  It's not out of the realm of possibility, and that would give us the cool, old-school Rams uni.  There's also Curtis Martin, another former Pat.
