My wife and I were huge fans of Sharktapus when it came out... :P

What was almost as scary to me was reading that Seau was the 8th member of the Chargers 1994 Super Bowl team to die.

Eddie O has been saying that exact same thing all series against Phoenix and it seems from memory that the main goals they scored were all up high.  They also didn't have nearly enough traffic in front of the net.  Smith had way too many open looks at shots.

One other thing that Eddie O said during the Hossa/Torres incident that I would love to get people's opinion on was with respect to how the league can get bad hits under control.  He stated that if a player is suspended for an illegal hit, then the team should have to play short handed for each game that player is suspended.  He thought players and coaches would have more incentive for policing themselves if that were the case.

I realize that it would never happen, but it could possibly keep things under more control.  Now, I'm not in favor of neutering players like the NFL tried to do this past season, but I did think he brought up an interesting concept...

The play-off experience was amazing last night until the third period when the Coyotes went up by 2.  After that the enegy just left the building.  The Blackhawks are in desperate need of a first tier goaltender as I think this season showed a distinct disadvantage for the Hawks in goal.

The linesman nearest that Hossa hit actually flinches in the video when the hit is made, presumably because he thought Hossa would fly into him rather than drop like a sack of rocks.  And no call?  GMAFB.  Cannot in any way say he missed the play because he's RIGHT THERE.

My wife and I were both yelling about that exact same point during the replays.  I seriously thought that Q was going to burst a blood vessel in his face when he was screaming at the officials after the play.  I was glad to hear that Hossa left the hospital under his own control and even happier to hear that Torres was indefinitely suspended until his meeting on Friday.

I'm really hoping that the Hawks can at least win one of the next two games (if not both) because I have tickets for Game 6 on Monday.  It would be awesome to see them win the series at home when I'm there.

Not sure if anyone else is watching the Blackhawks/Coyotes series, but Torres knocked out Hossa in the first period with a vicious hit.  Speculation is that he will get suspended for at least 6-10 games.  He left his feet and hit Hossa directly in the head with his shoulder.  They had to carry Hossa off the ice on a stretcher.  The worst part was that there was an official less than 10 feet away and he completely missed the call...

"ENOUGH WITH THE RE-ISSUES!!!" said the angry completist shaking his fist in the air...

Don't get me wrong, I'm one of the biggest Darth Maul fans out there and will get this (hopefully for less than what I paid for the original version), but I'd really like to start seeing some originality from Medicom again at some point.

Not sure if everyone was aware of these or not, but there was another Be@rbrick promo that was run with the release of TPM in 3D.  The sponsor was Suntory and this time there were only 8 figures. I think 3 of these are re-releases (Yoda, R2-D2, Darth Vader), but it appears as though the Yoda doesn't have the leg detail that the previous release had.  Anyway, just thought I'd post this in case there are more completists out there that couldn't get enough 70% Be@rbrick SW figures!

Just got back from Wrath of the Titans.  Meh.  Good popcorn flick, but nothing I couldn't have waited for on disk.

When we were there last year, we saw the pod race, hoth battle and flew around Kashyyyk.  I believe when I asked, they said that there were 60 different flights that could be seen.

I could totally see a snowspeeder or pod racer coaster.  That would have been an awesome addition to that theme park.

Sorry to hear about Tarkin, Jesse.  I hope it ends up getting better as time passes...

On a personal note, I may be seaking out advice from you as our Great Dane, Buffy, is turning 10 in May.  It's going to be a really rough patch for the entire family when it's her time.

Are we still drafting tomorrow if we only have 5?  Not that it matters as I won't be able to join live tomorrow anyway, just wasn't sure if we wanted more people or not.
