I always take a "wait and see" approach to the offseason.  I think the Yanks letting Leiber go might be a mistake.  He had some great outings where he was nearly unhittable.

Al Leiter being effectively shown the door by the Mets is something of a surprise.  He was one of the clubhouse leaders, but I think Omar Minaya wants the team to go in a different direction.

What's very galling about off-season goings on is this:  Barry Bonds has the last 6+ years of his career being called into question and still has the nerve to hold a $1,000 + ticketed autograph event in NYC.  A-Rod is also a part of the event, but you would think that Bonds would lay low in light of the Balco scandal and the recent revelations.  I can't believe he has the nerve to do something like this now.

There's a KG in the blue uni in the new NBA box set, too.  He comes with a white uni Ben Wallace.

Yeah, he's gonna paint a dumpster brown and rust colored.

Did anyone manage to score the Shannon Sharpe figures?  I had to pass.

Brent, enjoy!  A friend of mine just got back from his honeymoon on Maui, and he said that the Road to Hana is something you shouldn't pass up.  Also, try to take the ride up to the top of Haleakala.

Jeez, I can't believe I forgot Ben Franklin?!  It was right next door to the movie theater downtown.  The movie theater where I saw Star Wars for the first time!  I remember getting my iron-on shirt for The Empire Strikes Back there.

I think the Iron Sheik might be dead.  Nikolai Volkoff still makes appearances.  I think.

Let's see.  The main places I remember going to were Child World and Sears.    There was also a toy chain called Toy & Sports Warehouse.  Add in the old big box stores like  Bradlees and Caldors.  Also, there was Service Merchandise.  And then later on came Kaybee and Toys R Us.

Child World was basically the TRU of it's day.  Definitely my old favorite.  I remember getting my vintage Yoda there quite vividly.

I had done well on the chase figures up until the last two series.  Dark Phoenix has totally eluded me, as has phasing Vision.  I managed to snag most of the others, except for the ML3 maskless Wolvie.  But these last two series are killing me!

You can always try to score the ML6 version of maskless Wolvie, Brent.  I finally got one at a show for $30.  I honestly don't care that the cardback doesn't say ML3, I care that I got that sculpt finally.

No, just Morgbug.  Don't mind him.  He's just Canadian.   ;D

No Vinatieri chase, eh?  That stinks.  They've finally made an OT and a K, and they don't make chase versions of either?  It's an outrage, I tell you!

It's a chase, and he's probably coming back.  If anything, it could be decent trade bait eventually.

Naahh, just been wondering about that.  I haven't heard anything solid.  It seems like the WR's are getting all the attention in this series.
