If that were the case, wouldn't LeBron et al. have gone to Dallas?  Snyder is a complete ass who craps on the fans and runs the Skins like a fantasy football team.

I know it's a popular sentiment nationally but that's not really an accurate view of the guy anymore. I'm a former season ticket holder and I certainly don't agree with everything Danny has done, but he is much like Cuban in his youth and obsession for winning (and tendency to rub some people the wrong way). The Skins just don't have any actual success to show for it.  ::)

I love that Cuban basically just shut up for the whole playoff run and did not allow himself to become a distraction. You know he was itching to have a go at Philip after that sweep.

What did you guys think of Lebron's postgame comments?

I grew up in the DC suburbs.  Synder has only been hands off in the past year.  Things like getting rid of Brian Mitchell so they could bring in a washed up Deon Sanders or drafting Heath Shuler are prime examples of his screw ups.  Just about everything at a Redskins game experience sucks...especially the extreme nightmare of parking, nevermind the price to park.  Synder has bought up DC radio stations so he can have complete control over broadcasts...i.e. no one can bad mouth him or the team.  The guy is nothing like Cuban, and he certainly is no Jack Kent Cooke.  He is just a rich guy with a Napoleon complex.

I'm even happy for Cuban, dude is the closest thing to Dan Snyder that the NBA has, so it's good to see him learn and grow. You gotta give those rings out though, come on.

Rumor is he had that in mind since the "Silence in the Library" episode back a couple of years ago.

That would kind of shock me.  I'm not sure at that point that if Tennant was definitely leaving yet.

Watched the final episode for season six.

Quite a good episode and set up for next season with a reveal of a characters identity.

Spoilers sweety....

It explains a lot from the first episode of the season.  Just wonder how long they had this planned out.

I watched my first Hartnell episode last night, An Unearthly Child.  Interesting to see how it all began.  Hartnell seems to play the Doctor as a cranky old man.  Really different than an of the other Doctors I've seen (Tom Baker to Matt Smith).  Too bad a lot of these old episodes were destroyed by the BBC.

Is the panic button on the cell phone?

No, a panic button on the control pads for the alarm system.

142
Why not ditch the security system and go with a self monitoring system over the internet? A system like that could send updates to your cell phone. You could even add cameras that can be accessed from the web.

It is much easier for the company to call me to tell me an alarm has gone off and should they send the police then getting a text at 2AM where I have to get up and get to a computer to see if someone is breaking in.  Plus I have a panic button that automatically summons the police if someone is breaking in while I'm at home and the alarm isn't armed.

I'm 36 and have cable and internet from the same provider.  I ditched the landline several years ago and just use my cell.  The only people who ever called the landline were telemarketers anyways.  The only downside is an additional fee for my security system.  However, the fee was less than what I paid for the landline.

Is this one shipping yet?  I just got an email saying my waitlist was about to be cancelled due to no one cancelling orders.  This would be the first time the waitlist has failed me.

They were clearanced here...  Really easy to get.  I wasn't even into them at the time and picked up Figrin D'an who was supposedly the hardest one to get, and got him pretty cheap.   :-\

I agree that another Clone's maybe not the route to go, but another Cantina alien that hadn't been done by anyone would've been more appreciated IMO.  Something particularly weird.

I paid a little over retail for them off of ebay when ebay was pretty new.  Maybe $2 a figure extra which I didn't think was bad at the time.  My Walmarts were consistently bad with exclusives through the 90's.  I only found their 12" Degobah Luke exclusive once, and it was the last figure.

I prefer this set over yet another clone.  I would have thought they would have moved on to the Fett's by now.  At least they did make Hammerhead.  Also, the Hasbro Nodes were a Walmart exclusive early on in the run so they weren't that easy to find.

At this point I have to wonder how the Caps would fare during the regular season if their schedule was more like baseball.  Meaning that they play a three games series with the same team.  For yet another year where the Caps can be the top seed and just stink in a playoff series, I just wonder if they could win consistently during the regular season if they played the same team in small series.  It just seems the opposing team can figure them out, but they can't figure out the opposing team for the long haul.

Well the Doctor is back. What did you think of the first episode? Nice shots if Utah there. Freaky looking alien huh?

Awesome episode.  I'm guessing this may have been the set up for the whole season.  Nice little cliffhanger...I wish they had played the first two episodes back to back.

I think you may be too kind to Caps assuming they won't self destruct again before reaching the finals.

I am so far behind on Lego right now.  I really have to go through the collection to see what I'm missing.  I haven't even picked up the last UCS set or two.  I hope this SDS doesn't come out for a while.
