It may not have made a difference, but I think that was a bad call at the end of the game.  It should've been ruled an incomplete pass.  I doubt the Cardinals could pull anything off with only 5 seconds left, but still.

It was an exciting game and a fun one to watch.

AMEN.  I'm not going to rant over the officiating...well, yes I am.  I think the Cards got a raw deal between the Harrison TD at the end of the first half and the Warner "fumble" at the end of the game.  They sure took their sweet time making sure Harrison's TD was legit, but the angle on the TV looked to me like his knee was down before crossing the line.  It also looked to me like Warner's arm was moving forward on that last play, but no review at all?  For something that close at the end of the biggest game of the year? 

Anyone can say that the Steelers would have gotten another play and scored at the end of the half anyway (despite a number of strong Arizona goal line stands) and likewise, maybe the Cardinals wouldn't have done anything with one more play and 5 seconds on the clock, but who knows?  Maybe I'm biased because I wanted the Cards to win, but a little more even play calling would have been nice.  All in all, at least it was a really close, exciting finish.

Put all that aside though - the real injustice in the game was the call on that classless thug Harrison.  Shoving a guy, holding him down, clearly punching him in the back, shoving him down with a hit to the throat, then shoving him down AGAIN.  Madden was right - he should have been ejected.  Instead the Steelers get penalized what, a yard?  Say what you want about guys like C. Johnson, T. Owens, or R. Moss - I'd rather have a dozen guys like that on my team before I'd take a dirty cheating piece of **** like Harrison. 

Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Stealers.

And speaking of the Hawking lady, in the pop-up repeat episode last night, we learned that Hawking's first name is "Eloise" (the same name as his time-travveling rat, lol).  Then, in the new episode, the fiesty girl who takes Faraday to the bomb... Richard called her "Ellie".  Is she a young Eloise Hawking?  And if Eloise Hawking is indeed Daniel's mom, then that means that he just met his own mom in the past.   :o


I didn't catch the names, but thought the same thing when he mentioned she looked familiar.  I'm still not sure I like the whole time travel bit, but we'll see how it plays out.  I'm wondering if Faraday's whole "the future can't change" shtick is for real. I bought that a few episodes back, but if that's true, how are people on the island (i.e. the extras who get blown up by the mine at the river" getting killed in the past?  I think Faraday just told everyone that, so that they wouldn't try to change things and possibly create a problem with the time-space continuum.  Keeping all that in mind, do you think Richard went to visit John Locke as a boy because of some other indicator that said he might be a good leader or because past-John told him when and where he would be born and Richard decided to check it out?

Where's JediJman?   He should be here for this. ;)

Oh, I'm here.  Not much worth commenting on in this thread, but I can't resist the request from my adoring fans.   ;) 

This is supposed to be a thread about "The Office" right?  I was dissapointed that it was a rerun tonight, but it was a nice treat to see Holly again.

So, in the process of their reset, the local Walmart has moved the Moff JerJerod (X5) out of the clearance isle, scraped the $5.00 clearance stickers off, and put them in with the Legacy collection figures    :'(

The particularly sad thing is, if they marked them to like $2 or $3 bucks, i might just buy a couple, but at $7.46, no way; they'll be there in 10 years...

Funny - they dropped the price by over 50% on the BMFs after what, 3-4 months?  But they can't manage to offer a 2yr old figure for less than $5.

WOW, I didn't realize that the Series 1 standard Boba Fett got this expensive:

Boba Fett Auction

Boba Fett Auction 2

I wouldn't estimate current value based on non-winning Buy-it-now auctions.  Note that both of those have a "Or Best Offer" option on them.  I didn't see many of these in the completed auctions section, but Here's one that sold in the UK for just $20.  That's still more than I would have thought though.

Saw the Target GI Optimus today for $17 and change which is about 75% off. There were two on the shelf in really trashed boxes.  Thought about it as it looks pretty nice but decided I didn't really need more Transformers.

But, check your Target if you're interested, they might be cheap.

   E...

Ack - which Target?  The lowest I've seen these for is $35 (Crystal and BP Targets).

All I have to do is get a coat of clear spray paint on him and then he is done.

I like the box.....might buy it now.  Hopefully there's some logs in there.

Some logs in where?  What?  Stop drinking at work.

I'm not paying for action figures made out of cardboard!   :D

That's funny stuff.   ;D  I'm not mcloving this fig - will be an easy pass if there's nothing different versus the old can-cel and Anakin a redo.

The ARC-170 box is sitting on top of it for a little size comparison.  Unless the box is a total mock-up.

Kind of.  Neither box is fully in view so it's hard to tell how far off tothe right they go.  Also can't tell how disassembled the tank is - my first thought was that this is smaller than the AT-TE, but can't really tell based on this.  I hope someone comes across a back of box photo shortly...
