GO RED SOX!

Dang, Pedro looked good tonight.  I was worried for the Sox pitching after they were so beat up (and the debacle in game 1 with all those runs scored), but man they are pitching on fire now...

Ditto.

I, too, got some moolah from Dave today!  Everytime I've dealt with Dave, payment arrives quickly!  Smooth as always indeed...

Thanks again, Dave!

Here's what I've seen around town recently...

K-Mart: ANH wave & AotC wave

Target: ANH wave (no Chewie/3PO pack though) & BH wave

Wal-Mart: ANH wave

TRU: ANH wave, AotC wave, BH wave

I have not seen the Stormtrooper 2-pack yet, but I think that's in teh wave 3.5 cases (a case assortment with pretty much 1x each of the sets so far).

Alos, in a lot of the Target stores I've been to, the GH figures are always in the "other" Action Figure aisle (not the main AF aisle with batman, SW, GI Joe, etc).  They are mixed in with the McFarlane figures, Ninja Turtles, etc.  One Target even has them in the aisle with the Rescue Heroes.  Be sure to hunt around your local Target to make sure you aren't missing them!

Wow.

These figures look great!  Lots of articulation where needed (Wookiee and General).

I can't wait for these...

Mmm.... Padme.

I caught the first song and could have sworn she was faking it.  She had all the classic moves of a faker down (holding the mike in front of your mouth to obscure the view, no pause while moving, etc.)

Pretty funny that she got busted.   ;D  Too bad I missed the second song...

Kubricks / Re: Power of the Kubricks!
« on: October 25, 2004, 02:28 PM »

Ooooooh.  Pretty.  Maybe I should try to grab one of those Luke or R2 for my growing collection...

Wait.  Too expensive.  Other stuff I can buy with the $$$... or should I... no.

OK, Note to self:
I do not want to collect carded Kubricks, I do not want to collect carded Kubricks, I do not want to collect carded Kubricks, I do not want to collect carded Kubricks, I do not want to collect carded Kubricks, I do not want to collect carded Kubricks, I do not...

I don't think it's working... :-\

If pay was more even, and teams were more competitive, you would see more and more players wanting to play in there home towns, most of which are small market teams.  You can sit here and argue all day with me about the cap not working, but I will disagree til I die. 

Ah, but the fundamental flaw in a salary cap is revenue sharing.  Until baseball has a revenue sharing deal like football does, where 1 network buys the rights for ALL teams and everyone gets a share a cap will not work in baseball.

Now, being from Minnesota, I'd love to see a small markets get more competative.  I just don't think a cap will do it.

Lets look at some numbers.  The Yankees average 30mil a year for endorsements on TV/Radio because of their network.  There is NO way that the Twins could ever generate that much dough.

Even if the Twins started their own network (they did, and it failed miserably) they could NEVER generate the cash that the Yankees do putting the games on TV.  The large market teams make MORE money than the small market teams do.  End of story.

Revenue Sharing in football ensures that even if the Arizona Cardnals suck and never sell out a game, they will still earn 30-40millions in TV/endorsement cash alone.  You just don't get that security in baseball.

Let's say that there was a cap of $120 million put in place.  Do you really think that Tampa would suddenly start spending $120 million on payroll?  NO WAY.  All you'd do is cap the Yankees and Red Sox from being GREAT, they'd just be REALLY GOOD.

If we were to impose a salary cap in baseball, the only thing it would do is bring down player salaries, in that players might agree to take less money in order to sign with a competative team (the way it happens in teh NBA where guys take the minimum to play for a great team).

I do NOT think a salary cap would make all teams more competative unkless you find a way to pool all the TV/radio money from all teams and then split it up.  Teams like the Twins and the Devil Rays will never spend cash unless they know it is safe and they won't lose money.  (this is the same reason why I think a cap won't work in hockey).

Anyway, just my $0.02 on the matter.

Dang.

I missed both of the Game 7s, but sounds like they were great.

I still can't believe that the Sox pulled it off, or that Ortiz was the MVP.  Crazy.  Baseball history...

What a wild game last night, looks like tonight is going to get crazy too...

Jesse sent payment for some items he's picking up from me...

The payment arrived lightning quick and the deal was conducted with ease.  Fear not when dealing with Jesse!

Rumor has it that the Preview Vehicle is Anakin's New Jedi/TIE Starfighter looking thing...

The yellow looking one that's popped up in a few places, such as the Insider...
