I agree that it isn't a choke losing to the Canucks, but, and I'm just basing this off of the handful of games I watched of the Sharks this postseason, they sure do seem to blow a lot of third period leads. They seem like they can't close to me. Is Joe Nathan or Matt Capps on their team (had to take my chance to pour some salt in my MN Twins woes).

Thank God they finally arrested one of the jacka@%es you beat the Giants fan on opening day. Hope he gets put away for a long time.

How much would you pay for a vintage Vlix figure that was missing, say, a leg, but in otherwise decent condition?  Not exactly the same, but I'm sure people would pay some good coin for that shot at owning one of the most rare Star Wars figures.

Would it be a lot different than paying a $100+ for a box for a very rare/desirable vintage piece?  The box for a Flagg, for example?


I hear you and I realize that an item is worth what someone will pay you for it, but I just didn't know Stretch Armstrong was that popular still. I don't think there is a

I feel the opposite on those shows. The storage guys are taking advantage of people's lack of being able to pay for their storage. Now don't get me wrong that isn't their fault, but indirectly they are taking advantage.

And I think the Pawn Star guys are more than fair. They have to make a profit and they don't pretend things aren't worth something. Did you see the episode where the lady brought the Fabrige spider broach and wanted $1000. Rick said, "I couldn't steal this from you. I'll give you $18,000 for it".

I know those things broke after time as you stretched them and they had mentioned a full one was worth like $12,000. But would you pay a third to half price for a head of a SW fig? Just seemed crazy to me.

Not even sort of the right thread, but does anyone watch "Pawn Stars"? Did you see the head, missing the body, that they bought from a Stretch Serpent from the Stretch Armstrong line? He paid $500 for it and the toy expert said it was probably worth $4000 to $5000. I didn't know that Stretch Armstrong was still that popular that a piece of a toy no matter how rare would be worth that much.

This is one of those "up yours" moves from Hasbro I like. Now I will have no problem passing on BPs as opposed to buying them just because I don't have a clone painted like that.

Picked up "Vortex" for $14 hardcover and "Red Harvest" for $10 hardcover at a used book store yesterday. Nice to get them for half and 1/3 price.

This thread made me laugh. I must have spent like $50 on stuff this year it's been such slim pickings in brick and mortar.

I believe I heard he compares to Chad Pennington. I bet the Jets wish they hadn't used such a high pick on him (that was the year Brady went 199 as a side note).

Arm strength is so important to me so "not a lot of arm strength" quotes on a number 12 pick. Ugh

Five years from now people are going to look back at this draft and say wow not a single QB chosen was ever remotely a star in the league. The teams that take QBs today may say oh well it was worth the chance, but teams like Carolina, MN, Jacksonville, Houston are gonna be angry at themselves and the coaches that get fired over it will really be angry with themselves.

Cool. Another figure for me to see pictures of and then never find in the store to buy.

Watched "The King's Speech" this weekend. Very good, but if that was really the best movie from last year then that is sad for last year.

Those last two posts are excellent. I will never be out. I love SW too much, but for me now it's either the store I am near happens to stock (whether it's near my house or if I'm out and about) or if a store somewhat close is reported to have something new stocked then I will buy it. But the fun days or running around and having to have everything right away are long gone.

So if I miss out on something because of it. Oh well

Anyone have any thoughts on MLB adding another wild card team next year? Sounds like it's a done deal.

My first thought is NO. But it would make the division winner have a much bigger advantage over the wild card team than the system currently does so I like that.
