I don't know that I agree about the Baltimore thing.  The Colts held onto their name after they left Baltimore.  Also, the city of Cleveland also fought Art Modell for ownership of the name The Browns,  prompting him to change the name of his franchise to the Ravens.  I think those situations are kind of sticky.  As for the Oilers/Texans....I'm on the fence.  I kind of like the Texans name.

Pardon me, but I think it's a dopey name.  Yes, they're playing in the nation's capitol, and they're also in the National League (if it were otherwise, it would be even dopier).  But the name doesn't do it for me. 

I think with Major League Baseball's emphasis on it's own history and tradition, it seems like the Washington Senators would have been a perfect fit.  Sure, the Senators didn't have a great tradition and were never anything special, but if the events of this past October have taught us anything, it's that streaks of bad luck do end.  When the NFL saw fit to expand again and resurrect the Cleveland Browns all was right in the world.  The same should have been said of the Senators.

I know in the league's that I'm in where we have defensive players and not just team defenses, tackles don't get tabulated until Monday at the earliest.  It still doesn't make this suck for you any less, HE.

That's messed up on the part of the NFL.  I would think that the stats would be final on the day of the game unless there's some kind of official protest.  But even then I couldn't see how that might affect individual stats, no less days later.

It took going to a show, but I scored the Absorbing Man AND the ML6 version of maskless Wolverine.  FINALLY!  And I'm also trading for a Hawkeye.  Life with Toy Biz is a little bit better now.

Uhhh, yeah!

I got the regular Vinatieri today.  But there's one question  that remains:  I haven't been very active on the Spawn boards lately, and I saw 4 white jersey Roy Williams today.  Is this the regular version, or the chase?  The source of the confusion is that the back of the package shows Williams in the Dallas blue jersey.

Whoa, this looks messed up.  As for the official stats, might I recommend that we reference the NFL's official stats at as the definitive source for stats?  I see that some of the stats seem to vary slightly from different sources.  I would say reference either the NFL site OR Yahoo alone since they're the host for the league.

Ah, I see.  It might make it easier for the forumites to understand that by either stating that it's an email entry, or add the name of the submitter to those posts.

The show isn't until May.  I'll hook you up if you don't have on by then.

Scored a Trent Green variant today.  I think the kid at the store was pissed that he didn't see it when it went out.  Oh well, I don't think he was a Chiefs fan anyway.

Well, X-crap is definitely overdone, but there are still a few on that list I'd like to see.  I didn't vote, but these are my top five:


There's a killer looking Marvel Select She Hulk that will be sold at the Wizard Conventions this coming year.  I believe she'll be in scale with Marvel Legends, too.  I'll definitely be buying this piece at WW in Philly.

BTW, has anyone seen the Marvel Select Doctor Doom?  It looks awesome!  This might be one of the few Marvel Select pieces I buy.

Hey Scott, what's with the multiple lists on your part?

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Top 10 Rock Bands of ALL Time
« on: November 13, 2004, 12:04 AM »
Always a tough thing to do, but here it is the way I see it.

1)  The Beatles.  They were revolutionaries, pure and simple.

2)  Elvis Presley.  The King deserves his due.  Just listen to his Sun Records work with Bill Black and Scotty Moore.  That was the original rock band, and they defined it in the mid 50's.

3)  The Rolling Stones.  Not a fan per se, but they hold their own.

4)  The Jimi Hendrix Experience.  There hasn't been anyone like him since.

5)  Black Sabbath.  The true fathers of Heavy Metal.

6)  Led Zeppelin.  A tremendously influential band.

7)  The Clash.  Punk and politics.  They were actually important.

8)  Bob Marley and the Wailers.  Another true revolutionary.

9)  The Ramones.  The progenitors of the NY punk scene, and yes I DO KNOW about the NY Dolls.  The Ramones had far more of an impact.

10)  Sex Pistols.  They made punk rock dangerous, regaining the spirit that rock had lost in the 70's.

I think a non-Mr. Fixit Grey Hulk is definitely warranted.  That's how the Hulk debuted, and there were some great storylines in the late 80's/early 90's with the grey Hulk as well.
