Thanks for the updates ;D

That is the beauty of the NBA though.  Game is not over until the last buzzer sounds.  so easy to come back from 20 down.  

Out of curiousity, will Laker fans be whining about the reffing?  Curse those conspiratorial directors at NBA headquarters.  BTW, was game 3 still the turning point ;)

Hockey game is over.

Quite.  I like 13 and 15.  Not much in the way of dupes there.

Matt, if that Camaro is up for sale, LMK.  Actually don't, my wife would kill me.  For real.  but if he feels like giving it away, I'll happily fly down and drive it back.  

Saw a beauty today while with the kid at the playground.  Navy blue, all original Mustang Fastback.  Oh so sweet.

How about a series of direct-to-video features ala The Ewok Adventures? Like a Jar Jar & Boss Nass buddy movie. They could be the next Laurel & Hardy. (Or not... :P )

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.  Noooooooooooo!  Please, no gungans, no ewoks.

I'm still cheering for Ottawa, but...  Dang, Brodeur is good.  Not that Lalime sucks, but tonight Brodeur was great as he has been so often in the past.  Methinks the Sens were a little cocky heading into the game.  

I fear though that a Giguere-Brodeur final may kill the game in the US.  7 consecutive triple overtime games all ending 1-0.  Old time hockey, Toe Blake, Eddie Shore.  Sure thing Coach.

paploo must die!!


Raving lunatic here.  

My anti-Ewok stance was simply in place to irritate grumpy Ewok up there, but hey, the more the merrier.  

Welcome ;D

All right, so I really don't like this guy.  Everybody knows that right?  The Lakers suck and I think he's stalking me, BUT...

That doesn't mean the pillsbury dough boy here isn't a great trader and a real help to collectors, even Canuckleheads like me.  

Helped me out with the KB fiasco - got my Vader Riddell
Helped me out with the holiday droids - tough find for everyone
Even fired me off a Naboo royal security for cheap.

Now if only I could get him to stop writing Laker slogans on the box.  Canada customs agents hate the Lakers too, so I get nailed with duty.  

Thanks Matt.

JediMAC's response:
Uh... Just to avoid any confusion here for the newer folks, Brent and I are the best of buds.  He's just being a sarcastic smartass here!   ;)   By the way, that was a Naboo Royal GUARD, not Security, B!   :P

Sounds cool to me.I like these figures alot.Looks like I'm going to have to join the damn Fanclub again tho to get mine.Something I really dont care to do again.

Maybe, maybe not.  I've never been a member of the fan club.  The price to be a member in Canada is rather absurd, particularly after exchange.  I no longer remember the exact amount, but it ran somewhere around $75 or more.  Too steep for me.  

That, however, has never stopped me from ordering anything from the fan club.  I'm not sure why, but I've never had a problem. Got most of the EU stuff through there.  The fan club exclusive four, Wuher and even the stormtrooper 4 pack.  Maybe they have a rule for foreigners ordering, I have no idea.  I just hope I haven't jeopardized that ability by saying this.  

I have to have this Fett.  I have Vader and R2, so I must have this guy.  Hopefully I can luck out with the fanclub again (unless anyone wants to volunteer to help me ;)).  Or not.

Heck no, the Celtics overachieved.  They really never should have gone past the Pacers.   :)

Also, I should have clarified, those quotes are indeed from the ESPN article.  Which in case it wasn't abundantly clear, I found awful.  

Further clarification.  I hate the Lakers.  But that stems from the old series back in the 80s, Magic versus Bird etc.  This is not to say that the Lakers of then were not remarkably talented.  Magic, Jabbar, Nixon were amongst the best if not the best at what they did.  There was a phenomenal supporting cast at the time too.  Perpetual sixth man awards and Rambis and his glasses.  

The recent version of the loathed Lakers has the best center in the NBA bar none.  Probably the best out and out player in Kobe.  It also has a remarkable coach and a reasonable supporting cast.  

What I cannot abide is a bunch of whining on the part of Lakers fans (no, not you specifically Matt) and media.  Fouls are fouls, they need to be called.  Reffing should be fair and even.  

Just to continue my rant about this article Matt linked, this is about the worst analogy I have ever seen in my life:
But it's not Shaq's fault that Rose is only 6-foot-7, and that his elbow is at the level of Rose's face. And, hey, when a big guy and a smaller guy collide, the big guy is the one who's going to be left standing. Is it fair to tag the big guy with a foul because he's bigger and stronger? Using the same logic, every time a small guy jets past a big guy, the refs should call the small guy for traveling."
Great, so by the same token when Rose is posting up on Shaq, because Shaq's 'private parts' are at the same height as Rose's elbows, he should feel free to crank him in the crackers a couple of times?  I thought the by-line said this guy used to be a coach, not a grade 5 student (with all due respect to more sensible grade 5 students)?  

Elbowing a guy in a face to make space is a foul.  End of story.  Doesn't matter if you elbow him in the face or the nether regions.  So too it doesn't matter if you are 7'6" or 6'7" or 5'4".  It's still a foul.  And if the little guy in the author's pathetic analogy isn't dribbling the ball when he blasts past the big guy, yeah, call him for travelling.  They're called RULES.
