Burress has been chronically fined for crap like that by the Giants for like 3 years, it was probably a case his "last chance" than anything

Peterson was late to meeting, probably his first time...big difference

Hey Scott, when are you coming up for another meeting?  I want my free beer.   ;D

Yeah I know it was (supposedly) something dumb that he said was unimportant but which the team was public in saying they did NOT say it was important enough to miss work over.  And again, pick up your cell phone and call, ya know?  I mean I could see missing work for any myriad of emergencies, and ya just need to use that amazing piece of technology that gives you basically no excuse not to get ahold of someone. ;D

Well, it's easy to sit here and say that, but we still don't know the situation.  Maybe he was on his way to practice and found out his kid was running late and got into a fight with his wife, then drove in all upset about that and got stuck in traffic and just said to he11 with practice.  Maybe he forgot his cell when he stormed out or couldn't get reception.  Heck, maybe he had a phone, but didn't have the right number to call.  Or maybe he's just full of himself and couldn't be bothered to pick up the phone.

The point is, I think it's silly to keep him out of a game because he missed practice.  If he didn't make a game, then that's a big problem, but guys miss practice for soreness or injury all the time.  I work in an office, which is obviously very different, and most people would call in if something was up, even something serious.  However, I've seen people not show up because of traffic or weather or kids or whatever and not call in or change their out of office or their voicemail.  It would be ridiculous to see any of these people punished for something like this unless they missed some major deadline or presentation, which I would liken more to a game than a practice.

Besides, not having a good player play punishes the rest of the team as much, if not more than the player.  If you want to punish these guys, slap a big fat fine on them for missing practice - something like 5% of their annual pay or something substantial they will notice.  Just my two cents.

Burress blew off practice all together I thought.

Apparently, he missed a workout due to a family emergency and didn't call in to say he wouldn't be there.

Calling to say I wouldn't be at practice might not be at the top of my to do list depending on the type of "emergency," but that's just me.

TFormers has some pics up of what may be the toy of the movie Soundwave figure.

Ya.  It's lame - just like almost all of the first movie toys.  I liked the movie and the designs, but not so much on the toy front.  Going to save some $ this time.

These are amazingly bad.  I keep hoping they'll put out something new worth buying, but I'll be saving my modey as well. 

I know some might label me a G1 elitist, but I loved transformers because the vehicle mode looked like a vehicle and the robot mode looked like a robot.  This new stuff fails on both fronts - something that doesn't look like a robot transforms into something that doesn't look like a vehicle. 

You'd have more luck finding a robot shape in a bag of potato chips.

I'd buy many of those, were they good sculpts and within 200 miles of me. 

I'd get these two, likely no more. 

7 (tie). Valkyrie
9. Crimson Dynamo

He was late to a team meeting.

Really?  Weren't Chad Johnson and Plaxico Burress suspended for one game each for being late to meetings?  I guess the rules are different if it's your best guy...  ;)

It's nice if all you wanted were the tower and an AT-ST or something, but it does suck that we get vastly superior figures that make up at least two of the set.  The tower rocks, and was worth the price (to me) last year, but the price of the set sure was a lot easier to swallow knowing you got 2 VOTC Snowtroopers, and some other good stuff in it.

I don't know - most people I've talked bought it mainly for the Turret.  Most of the "new" figures are the same, so I don't see the Snowtrooper switch as much of a loss.  Hasbro could have just left the set two snowtroopers short as well.  I personally would rather have saved $5-10 on the set if it meant taking these instead of the SA version.

That's actually two confirmed stores within 5 miles of each other that are pricing this at $70.  Ridiculous.

I thought the vikings looked surprisingly good for a change yesterday.  I guess it helps to start out 14-0 shortly into the game.  Did anyone hear why Peterson didn't start the first or second series?  He didn't seem injured and ended up with a strong game - just seemed odd that they would keep out their best player through much of the first quarter for no reason.  I'm personally a firm believer in letting guys go out and get a feel for the game versus the committee approach many teams have started utilizing.

Christina Ricci at the Episode 1 premier.

Nice to see she's excited to be there, but I don't find her attractive at all.  Does anyone else think she just looks too much like a demon?  :o

The Legacy Collection / Re: Legacy Collection Comic Packs

The Leia from the Xizor pack has my vote as the biggest hunk of **** ever.

Way worse than monkey Leia.

That thing looks like a midget made from room temperature sculpy.

What's sad is that Hasbro can sculpt excellent figures like Padme or Ahsoka which have petite physiques, but Leia looks like she packing 20 extra pounds of water weight in her cankles. Plus, she has those horse**** preposed arms. They easily could have repainted the arms from Fireside Padme to polish this turd a little bit.

The 80's Jane Fonda/Olivia Newton John attire doesn't do much for her either. Throw some leg warmers on there and douse her in water and we'll have the perfect Flashdance figure.

I'm hugely dissapointed in that Leia figure.  I know they are comic packs and sometimes articulation/sculpting is limited due to cost, but the "skin" parts actually look thicker than the "clothed" parts, which is a little ridiculous.

I picked up an Isaac Asimov collection of short stories. I've been digging short stories lately.

Maybe you have ADD?

Wait, what were we talking about?

Justin helped me out by being a 'mule' and picking my stuff up from Matt! Thanks a lot for the help!

We will need to come up with a better nickname if you want help in the future.   ;)
