Thanks Rob, spelling was never my strong suit.

I also hope that Robertson doesn't end up in the long line of closers that floundered on the South Side.  Maybe I'm just being pessimistic after the last few seasons, but after Jenks left town there doesn't seem to be anyone that can hold that job...

Meanwhile on the North Side of town:

So it would appear as though the White Sox have sealed the deal with Sam!#$%#$!%ja.  I'm really going to need to learn how to spell his last name now I guess...

Considering how bad the team has been over the last 6-7 years, I'm glad to see that they are at least making waves with their signings this offseason.  Now it's just a matter of whether or not it will equate to regular season success.

I've thoroughly enjoyed the Daniel Craig version of Bond and at least two of the three movies made with him.  Can't wait to see where they go with the Spectre angle.  It's funny because I saw an article yesterday where Craig was mentioning that he wouldn't mind seeing Blofeld show up again in a future Bond movie.  Maybe now he gets his wish.

I think I've watched this now a dozen times and love almost everything about it.  Not sold on the soccer ball astromech, but will keep an open mind.  I got very nervous that there was only the 'record' button on the back of the Stormtrooper armor, but was happy to see the 'pause' button after a couple viewings.  I also liked the nod to the original McQuarrie art concept with Daisey Ridley's headwrap.

I'm ok with the flame saber as long as Luke's and any other Jedi sabers are normal.

I'm with you on this.  I believe at the end of the trailer when everything has faded to black, you can hear a faint lightsaber sound effect, so I'm hopeful that means all others will be as we expect...  Fingers crossed.

Next year can't come soon enough!

Thankfully I won't need to drive into Chicago now to go see it now that they will be releasing it online!  However, my 10yo son said he would have accompanied me on the trip if I were going to go...  That's the age I was when ROTJ came out and I can still remember all the excitement leading up to that release.  I think I'm more excited for my sons than I am myself of seeing TFA when it comes out.

Just realized when I was posting my Black Thursday/Friday purchases that I never posted about what system I went with.  I ended up having enough airline miles to get a PS4 bundle that was being offered.  The unit came with an additional Dual Shock controller and two games (Minecraft and Knack).  Really looking forward to the boys going crazy this Christmas when they open that up!

Thanks for all the advice guys, it really helped in making the decision easier in the end.

I know it's early, but Best Buy started running their Black Friday deals online last night.  After several bouts of the site being down, I was finally able to get some things off the boys' and my list:

Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack - $40
Disney Infinity Toy Box 2.0 Starter Pack - $40
MLB 14 - $20
Lego Marvel Super Heroes - $15
Sony Blu-ray player - $50

Really psyched to get those starter packs for so much off.  They are going to freak when they open their new PS4 from Santa and these two packs from us.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and happy hunting if you  brave the stores today and tomorrow.

I had only owned the DVD EE's so it seemed like the best time to get these, finally.  They also had the Star Wars Blu-ray set for $80 so I got that to go along with it.  Hopefully this will be the last time I have to buy these until they are converted to Ultra 4K HD versions once the technology is available  :P

The boys are still too young to be able to see LOTR, but once they are able, I can't wait to marathon these and the SW movies.  Will definitely be a lot of fun when the time comes.

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...

The trailer will debut before all movies starting November 28...

Sorry, had to do it...  So does this mean that The Force gets up early for Black Friday too?  ::) :P

Blackhawks are playing with so many people from their farm team (Ice Hogs) that I think I'm going to refer to them as either the Blackhogs or the Icehawks until their starting line-ups are back.  Thankfully they squeaked out a fin llast night in Calgary.  Still can't believe they went to the box that many times and won...  Couple back to back games coming up in the next two weeks.  I'm just hopeful they can go at least 0.500 during the circus trip.  Fingers crossed!

Goodness me, but does my team ever suck.

They were obviously good enough to beat my team, the likes of whom have had their own suck-fest going on for long enough.  They need to get back on track here soon.
