Matt.  Question time.

Do you think the NBA really actually calls all the fouls?  Ever?  In any game?  Remember, I'm old enough to recall when basketball was a non-contact sport.  It looks more and more like a rugby scrum all the time.  

By the same token, 3 in the key; travel ball?  This is why I prefer college, they actually play by the rules of a game called basketball, rather than an entertainment program known as the NBA.  

Don't worry though, the calls will be reversed when the series shifts out west.

Headstones The Oracle of Hi-Fi

The real best band to come out of Kingston, ON.

Hey Dale, you listen to that CD or just drool on the booklet? ;)

It's just begging to be said guns don't kill people, people kill people.  I used to like to laugh at the US as the land where personal responsibility had no place.  Until Canada started doing the same.  

I despise Walmart and basically only shop there prior to 8 AM.  No other Canadian retailer carries a decently priced (remember, we pay $12.99 plus 14% for Marvel Legends) toys with a marginal selection.  Prices at TRU suck and their selection is worse (this is a store that still has Homer Wave 1 on the pegs).  

I buy toys there, and that's about it (well, maybe toilet paper).  I'll get my Maxim at 7-11.

Trivial cross border fact.  

US Mountain Dew has highest amount of caffeine of any soda/pop/coke.  No wonder y'all like it so much.

Canadian Mountain Dew has zero caffeine.

Actually, the ducks play hideously boring, trapping hockey that sucks the life and joy out of the game.  It wins, but it's tantamount to blasphemy.  

As regards kicking or knocking the puck out of the air, well, kicking is a no-no, but it depends on whether there was forward motion of the foot or simply a deflection off the foot/skate.  Redirecting with the stick in the air is allowed, so long as the contact with the stick is not above the waist.  Tough call there and other goals in the playoffs of questionable nature have been allowed.  One of the OT goals in the first round was allowed that was clearly a high stick.

Oh yeah, if you are watching US based hockey announcers, I'd have very little faith in their opinions.  No offence, but they tend to be transplanted baseball guys that really don't understand the game very well (unless perhaps they are out of the traditional hockey grounds - MInnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan).

Nuh-uh, guys. I am Lilith, end of story.  :-*

As you wish.

I was thinking of you more as a Princess Buttercup type (kidding). :-*

Urp.  

Greetings 'Jeff'.  

Uh, Matt, I remember that chat.  Is there anything I need to apologize for?

Looks like the Dallas game is the one to watch (so far)  2-2 in the second period.

Minnesota seems mildly hungry in this one, 4 mintues left in the second, 6-1.  Cliff Ronning just scored.  Looks like this one is going back to Minnesota for game 6.  I'd be impressed with the Canucks if they come back and win this one, but it doesn't seem likely.

I'm relieved.  Not much in that list that appeals to me at all.  No new Homers, I'm good.  Can't say I'm terribly dissappointed in the cancellation of the 300th set either.

Other Collectibles / Re: Who wants more Unleashed?!?!
« on: May 5, 2003, 10:26 PM »
Ah Scott, you're just not using your imagination.  Think about this:  A stormtrooper with a blast hitting him in the chest, knocking him back into the wall of the death star hangar.  Perfect complement to Han Unleashed.

Brad, you aren't taunting me because of what I said on another board, are you? ;)

Unleashed need to be dynamic characters.  While I love Jabba as much as the next guy (or gal), what's the Un-Jabba gonna be, drooling ferociously? :o

Chewie's a great choice for unleashed, so workable in so many ways.  I really wish they hadn't wasted a Vader with the redux.  They could have done a two pack or even three pack with Vader, Palpatine and Jedi Luke on the death star, just a much more dynamic version of the cinema scene.  Now that would be cool.

Hmm, not old enough in the sense of collecting to have had friends that collected toys - too old to have collected originally (i.e. vintage).  

But from a slightly different standpoint, I am amazed how few people are still active over at the other board where I did my initial burst of trading.  Lots of great people there, but for the most part, they all seem to be gone or only pop up occasionally.  Really, really transient population.  Matt, Scott, Dale, Bob are guys I traded with that are still around, many others are gone.  Jim doesn't count, cuz we didn't start trading until GH was up and running.  Even lots of Minnesota guys seem to have come and gone.
