What is the deadline for Trades today? Is it Midnight or is it during the day?

The Stars Picked up Valerie Bure (excuse my ignorance, but is he any relation Pavel?) and we also got some guy from Philly who is on the "Day to Day" list and in NHL lingo that could mean he has been dead for weeks or lost an arm in a thresher incident or could just have a hang-nail.

Somebody poke me with a stick when Dallas actually does something in the offseason. GEEEZZ, I realize Jeff Garcia is not the answer to our QB problems but this is a multiple choice question where you have to pick the "MOST CORRECT" answer.  I am writing a letter now telling Jerry to just let the RB's take direct snaps for the 2004 season to alleviate any Quincy factor, oh wait, we don't have an RB either do we?  In a Free Agent season when only the Giants in our division are doing less....and I thought that this would be the year to see Parcells do something.

Somebody wake me up when training camp starts, I'll use last years program, its not like there will be any additions. UGH.

I would say Last Summer.  I had gone in for a steroid injection in my back and when I came off of the Anestesia, I got more sick than I did at my batchelor party.

I almost puked over the holidays when my cousin brought her new boyfriend for Thanksgiving...he apparently is from some place where people don't dip/chew (Up North somewhere).  He grabbed a coke bottle (the little 20 oz) that he thought was his, but happened to be my uncles spit cup. And proceeded to take a sip.  And we all know what seeing somebody else chuck does to you, but I was laughing so hard it  I didn't have a chance.  Thank goodness we were on the back porch and had not eaten yet.

Management is officially saying these trade rumors are complete BS, they aren't shopping Moss to anyone...

Well that would seem to confirm that he is gone.  Oh wait sorry I'm still thinking about Tom Hicks and A-Rod.

I'll have to say this is a pretty lively Free Agency already just 36 hours into it.

Either that or in the last few years the Cowboys have had ZERO cap room so I just tuned it out.

I just hope we get a Quarterback.  Now that it looks like we have a receiver big enough and with guts enough to go across the middle, it would be nice to extend his playing life by having a QB that could throw the ball in front of him, instead of behind him.  

And of course not to get picky, but I'm not to thrilled with the prospect of Drew Henson, we already have a failed baseball player who wants to be a QB in Hutchinson and he can't even beat out Quincy....

What scares me is the amount of $$ all our Division Opponents are spending. If it was Spurrier in Washington, I would just be laughing, but at least Joe Gibbs knows what a Pro System looks like.

And on a final note....Indianapolis has bankrupt their future on a Choke artist.  I cry for the memory of Johnny Unitis and for the current Career of Ricky Williams (formerly of Texas Tech not the Dreadlocked freak from UT)

Vinaterri almost became the Steve Christie of new Century...

Congrats to the Pats and their fans (except of course the ones who thought the best way to celebrate was turn over cars, start fires and back over pedestrians)

Be careful when you go to the Celebration Mikey D. ;)

The last time so far was in 2000. I hurt my back at work and had a lower discectomy. They removed parts of 2 vertibre(sp?) and then cut out part of the disc. I will say that after I woke up from the surgery it was instant relief from the pain. I actually looked forward to the surgery to get the pain over with.

I had almost the same thing when I was 14.  It took the Doctors months to decide what it was because 14 year olds don't get Herniated/Slipped discs.  Well 6 months and 1 quack Doctor later, we find a doctor who knew exactly what it was and I had surgery the day after Christmas  and you are right, the surgery made the pain go away INSTANTLY.  It was the physical therapy that hurt after that.

Then 18 years later(last Summer). BOOM back problems again.  Only this time they treat it with Steroid/Cortizone shots. So far 5 shots and I am begging them to just do the surgery again so I can get some relief.

Homemade Vanilla.  And I don't mean "Homemade Vanilla" as the flavor, I mean mix the ingredients, put them in the maker and either Crank it or plug it in. (assuming of course some Guy hasn't fled Bespin with your maker)

If I can't make it at home, give me a Dairy Queen Dipped Cone.

I used to have Pizza Inn almost exlusively until they went out of business around here.

Now its Pizza Hut.  

I realize there is better Pizza out there, but a flight from Dallas to Chicago just for some Pizza would not be economically feasible.

When I order I get Pepperoni and Extra Cheese and AS LITTLE sauce as possible almost to the extent of NO sauce at all. it is about 50% of the time that it shows up correctly, they usually give me EXTRA sauce.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What magazines do you subscribe to?
« on: January 31, 2004, 09:15 AM »
I have subscriptions at my office for Time and People, for the lobby.

At home I have The Insider, Shotgun News, The Texas Bar Journal, Vietnam, World War II, Cowboy Chronicle and Guns of the Old West.

I'd be Wedge Antilles.  He's at all the major battles, he survives them all, but he is still low key enough that nobody remembers him and he has a pretty stable job.  Plus he can wear the Corellian Blood Stipe on his pants.

but why the hatred for the Pats?  

  Their not flashy, they just get the job done.  

I think that answers it for most people.

I think it also might be that the Pats fans are more vocal and have been about the team and you how people in forums like to be contrary.

I do have a question though for Mikey D.  I have been so busy this week the only thing I have seen about the whole Bowl is some BS coverage of the teams eating or parties or here is my question:

Is Bruschi gonna play? I haven't heard a word about THE GAME and it isn't on the front page of ESPN or anything.

Also, is Kliff Kingsbury healed up too?  I mean just in case something happens to Brady?  I'd like the Pats to win if it meant he got a ring.

As of right now, I am still going to root for the Panthers though.  Being a Dallas fan, I have to root for the NFC.  Unless Denver or the Texans were in it, they are my AFC teams.

It is going to a Mexican Food Fiesta at our house Sunday!!!  I can't wait.  What I want is one of those inflatable arm chairs.  You know the ones that will hold a normal human, not just a kids chair.  I have wanted one of those for a while.  I figure the combo of that chair and the Tex-Mex, and I can make "noises" all during a Superbowl that will probably end up 3-0 after 2 overtimes.   AND I'LL WATCH EVERY MINUTE OF IT.  Because after Sunday Night no Football till August.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Imperials=Nazis,Rebels=?
« on: January 27, 2004, 09:33 PM »
I don't think the Rebels would be the Jews per se, but you can't kind of see in the EU stuff how the Imperials believed all non-humans to be lower lifeforms and only good for slave labor or extermination so there may be a correlation for the jews there.

I think if you are going to force the rebels into one particular group, I have seen arguments before like Jesse has said, that they closely resemble the American Civil War Rebels (Confederacy).  A mix match of militias, wearing uniforms unique to their homeland(world) but all part of the same military.

I think you can also view a little bit of them in various armies throughout history (and even some SINCE the movies came out).

I see traits of the Maquis (the organized French Resistance of WWII), American Revolutionary Minutemen, The Afghans that fought the Russians, the Viet Cong, The Highlanders of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce, the German Tribes that beat the Romans.

It is basically an unconventional force, using outdated weapons (until they are able to procure newer ones) that strikes from hidden locations with Charismatic Leadership.

Don't let the ewoks with the Jump wings hear you guys praising him too a real Ewok Paratroop, a Glider rider is still just a "Leg"...

I like this one, I just wish his hood was removable.  I think the Paploo we got is worse off because of his hood.

oh well, I'll buy 2 at least.  So i can have some ewoks that aren't Teebo or Teebo in Logray's headgear.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What have you stopped collecting?
« on: January 17, 2004, 09:50 AM »
I agree with the others on the list that as a kid, I wasn't a "Collector", but then again, I don't consider it collecting at 33 either...but here is a run of the Toy Lines that have been in under the bed, in the closet and had parts sucked up into the vaccum cleaner...

Johnny West (12 inch Cowboys)
The Lone Ranger
Adventure People by Fischer Price

THEN CAME............1977-1978-to 1982
Star Wars
Battlestar Galactica
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.

When GI JOE RAH came out they all THE TWO WORLDS Collided.  And by the time it came out all my buddies had given up on I had a "Closet" hobby.  But I bought GI JOE and Star Wars stuff till both.  

Then I got into WWII Militaria (right before the stuff started getting expensive)

Then in Grad School, POTF2 came out and I used what was left of my Student Loan $$ to snag figs.

Shortly after that Dragon Started making 12in Accuarate WWII Figures and I sunk $40 a piece into them...I probably had enough of their Germans that I could take of 1:6th Scale France...and I had enough of their Americans that I could probably Take it back...  I "hung out my shingle" and opened my own office so I had to stop collecting something and Dragon and WWII stuff got the AX (and thanks to Ebay got my a good start on my office expenses)

I have since started into the LOTR stuff, but only in moderation.  And I only buy OT Star Wars stuff.  But all through it I have been an opener, so I don't know if that counts as "Collecting".
