I think the Canadians have passed on to a different club now  :o

Congrats Scott, I echo the ghost's sentiments wholeheartedly.

Gas was anywhere from $4.25 (resort pricing) down to $2.99 (Costco) in Hawaii but it's always ballparking Canadian prices anyway.  Currently $0.86 per liter here, or $3.44

Aloha from the Big Island all.

Nice!  I've been to Oahu and Maui which were both fantastic.  But I hear the Big Island is amazing.  Are you going to go check out that lava flow in Pahoa?

Likely we will.  We saw the flow two years ago when it was going into the ocean so this might be a little less visually exciting but still cool.  We were on Maui last week.   :)

The Big Island is probably our favourite (haven't been to Kauai yet) because it's so diverse and there's so much to do.  The only problem lies in the name - it is very big.  Where you can drive around the other islands and never really be that far away from anything here it's heck of a drive to most places.  We're currently 2 hours one way from Pahoa largely because the beaches and weather are far better on this part of the island (Waikoloa in the south Kohala district).  So if we go see the lava flow we're looking at a really long day but it would be worthwhile.

Holy crap, I'm in the finals! Good luck Brent, although I'm sure you won't need it with the points your team has been racking up lately.

And good luck to you too. 

I'm still a firm believer in Luck (hopefully not the guy on your bench this week though) so I really think it's anyone's game. 

Aloha from the Big Island all.

Up less than 15 versus Patrick and he still has 3 positions going with Cobb, Crosby, and Packers Defense.  Not feeling good about my chances unless Lacy has a big game.  Going up against Cobb in another playoff game as well, so here's hoping the TDs favor Lacy and Nelson instead.

Pretty impressive win by Brent this week - 90.97 to 90.60.  Does it get any closer than that?  Unreal.  Kudos to Marin on easily knocking off Scott.  Fitting match up and result for Packer fan vs. Viking fan this year.   ;D

In spite of my high scoring losses this season, I've had a similarly equal horseshoe in winning three games by a grand total of 2.2 points spread over all three of those wins. 

I'm not celebrating just yet in case there is a scoring correction.

Sure, it's a longshot, but the invitation is open to all that are interested.

I think you mean Monica Belluci, she's topping 50 but she is hot as all hell.
I never get tired of watching her in a movie.

You're right on both points.  My bad. 

She is hot as hell, but you don't see too many "old" Bond women.

Looks like the young Bond woman is Lea Seydoux.

Very true, but the Bond movie's initial primary market has long been the baby boomers.  The ass end of the boomer generation turned 50 this year.  So it makes sense from that standpoint, so long as they retain the younger eye candy as well.

Trying hard to remain positive.  I loved and grew up on the OT, seeing SW the first time(s) in theater at age 13. 

I enjoyed the PT in theaters, though it was a struggle.  Upon reflection on the PT though I find myself fairly disenchanted by that trio of movies.  It hurt. 

The trailer had cool aspects to it and looked good.  I'm guessing I'm one of the few that disliked the dark side saber.  Hilts?  Um, what?  And the soccer ball bit is disturbing. 

That said, I actually enjoyed the ST reboot movies because I looked at them mostly as fluff and fun and that worked.  JJ's movies seem enjoyable to me.  And Disney has done some wonders with other franchises so I'm hopeful.  Guardedly so however.

The results of this week pretty much lock up the final two playoff spots for Brent and OCB, no?

Looks that way.  I got shafted with a 57.21 to 57.53 loss last week, but I guess I was due to lose a close one.

Ooh, you put up a whopping 57 points and got shafted?   :-*

Gave in.  Since I was ordering the LOTR EE BluRays from Amazon, I snagged the red She-Hulk figure at the same time for $10.99.  Couldn't get the timing down to find it on HTS. 

I think the only thing I'm missing that's out and non-exclusive is the Wonderman figure.

I know this is an old thread but thought I'd bump in case anyone still is in need of the EE Blu-ray set.  Amazon has it up on a 1-day flash sale for $29.99:

Great price considering it was $120 when it first came out...

Thanks for that.  I've only owned the regular DVD EE editions up to now so that'll be a nifty addition to the 80" Sharp.   :)

Due apologies Rob.  I know how it feels to score that well and still lose.

Y'know what I love about fantasy football?  Luck. 

This week and last week I put up the second and third highest scores of the week.  Averaging 102+ points per week.  I love both head to head match-ups. 


My average is down around 98 points over the last three weeks, so clearly I under-performed this week and am deserving of the loss, what with the third highest point total.

Was the sound on this episode sketchy for anyone else?  Seemed to be cutting out a bit fairly frequently.
Check the batteries in your hearing aids - see if that helps  :-*

Ooh, another precision insight appeared midway through today's games.

Carson Palmer is listed as out for this week but you currently have him in your starting lineup. It is highly recommended you bench him. Consider adding Michael Vick, who is the best projected QB this week that is still available in your league.

Um yeah, my league is really super strict and the commissioner is a total dick, so he won't let us change quarterbacks halfway through the game.   ::)
