For those who don't know, the Chicago Symphony is probably the best symphony orchestra in America.

JD Sports Forum! / Re: Sammy Sosa busted with a CORKED bat!

The examination of Sammy's bats is definitely important.  But what's more important?  How will Sammy fare in the future?  

If his homerun numbers start to drop off, and he starts hitting a lot of fly balls, or doubles, then it taints a lot if not all of his personal hitting stats.  If he keeps on putting up the same, average number of homers with increased scrutiny, then I can accept this as a mistake.  If not, his career is tainted.

Been playing bass for the past 12 years.  My current band is currently popping in and out of the recording studio, working on our second CD-EP.  We've got label aspirations, and some strong material.

I would've gone with Vader at number one.  Thing is, he did manage to redeem himself.

Anyone notice that Hayden Christensen's looking a little bigger?  He was one of the actors commenting on the various heroes and villains.  Looks like he put some weight on for EPISODE III.

I don't get why we're getting so many of certain players.  Seems a might unfair to a lot of the hardworking guys in the NHL.  CuJo has gotten a pretty fair shake in the line so far.  Do we really need another?  Especially another Red Wing?  How many do we have at this point?  Can we at least get some players from the teams that are actually in the Stanley Cup Finals?!

I agree, Giguere definitely has come to the forefront.  And with Roy's retirement, I can definitely see Giguere as being a viable candidate to take his place in NHL7.

Roy seems to be the big question mark for a couple of series.  He was announced for NHl5 and one other series, but his retirement may change things.  After all, they've only be able to make players who are currently active.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Is Mace Windu a "bad egg"...?

One more thing about my Ki-Adi Mundi theory...he is herded into the center of the arena by Battle Droids during the cease-fire, when Dooku is addressing all the Jedi.  Perhaps he was intentionally spared, as to stay in the highest echelons of the Jedi order?

As for Mace, I have a hard time going along with the theory.  Jocasta Nu, I believe is a possibility, but not Mace.

I went to the State University of New York at Plattsburgh.  Majored in Mass Communications (TV Broadcast), and had a minor focus on music.  I graduated in 1994, but not before seeing our hockey team, the Cardinals, become the NCAA Div. III National Champions in 1993.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: What's up with availability
« on: June 3, 2003, 08:50 AM »
Availability is a very difficult issue.  But here's my take.

How Hasbro is responsible?  The case assortments.  Some case assortments just have too many of certain characters.  And then they show up in future assortments when the demand has already been filled.  Hence, you get pegwarmers.  Next item for Hasbro:  SKU's are only for Collection 1 & Collection 2.  Individual assortments should be given individual SKU #'s.  It would help the retailers re-order the items that are selling well.

How retailers are responsible?  Over-ordering.  Again.  They did it with EPISODE I.  Those first few waves just warmed the pegs for a long time.  With EPISODE II they did a little bit better this time around, but they didn't look past the 2002 Holiday season in terms of demand.  Hence, we've got too much 2002 stuff on the pegs and shelves and we're already close to Q3 of 2003.

Well, the SAGA Cardback is a different shade of blue.  This is the one the carded Padme & Coleman Trebor have come out on.  The Clone Wars cardback is somewhat red.

I can definitely appreciate your situation Cosmo.  I used to buy a lot of Sports Picks.  But now, I limit myself to players I like, the odd variation, local players, and most of the NFL line.

I haven't bought a single NBA figure for myself, just to trade to friends.  I've been debating getting the NHL5 line.  I'd like to get Roy, Messier and Domi, but I just don't know for certain that I'm going to do it.  McFarlane has said they'll guarantee 1 variant for every whole set that gets ordered, but it's starting to seem more like work than fun to get these.

As for the NFL line, I saw the Super Bowl set at a show in Philadelphia this weekend.  A dealer wanted $200 for them initially.  He then said $175.  I would've gone for it, but I just didn't have the cash available.  What's the top price most of you guys would pay for the Super Bowl set?
