Hopefully the Tony Romo experiment is over here now.  And the Jason Garret and Rob Ryan and Dez Bryant......

(Yes I know Jerry Jones as GM is the real problem, but that won't change any time soon and except for not being smart enough to hire a GM he is a Great Owner)

I keep reading (probably just local writers) say that 20 other teams in the NFL would take Romo over their QB... I can think of maybe 3 (and sadly I'd be willing to take their QB's, so I think it is a matter of perspective.)

I would be up for cutting everyone on the team, firing all the coaches and trainers and starting over.  Jason Witten deserves to play for a winner.

With the playoffs just days away, keeping in mind that I am a 100% rooting jinx, I will cheer for your team's opponent this weekend for Hobbit Figures or Imperial Navy Commanders the price goes up in the 4th Quarter.

Now I can watch Hockey...what channel did they move that to?

You still have an "email group"?  How Retro!!

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Christmas Songs that Suck

Oh, and the kid getting his mother shoes so she can die.

Your Mom is dying at Christmas?!?! And why is the kid described as "dirty"? Like poor people can't afford soap and water? That's a slap in the face right there.

All my female relative love that song... and I love to get them all riled up by explaining to them how it wasn't some act of kindness, it was totally a guy getting scammed by a kid.  The little kid probably went right back in the store, returned the shoes and hit the corner to buy a dimebag.  The little kid might as well have told that sucker that he was a Nigerian prince who would help the guy get half his fortune while he was at it...

So yeah, next time that song comes on, try imagining that the little kid is totally a scam artist or pickpocket who's working the singer like a rube for a $20 to buy weed.  You'll totally gain a new appreciation for the song...

I pointed out in the car the other night that if she is dead it wouldn't matter if they "fit just fine".  Best 3 hours of silence that didn't involve sitting in a movie.

Saw these Prototypes on Ebay thanks to a tip from JJ, they didn't go for near what I thought they would.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Disney Buys LFL; Announces Episode 7

I will have a longer response when I get to a full size keyboard, but has anybody thought about Disney's animation arm getting on this for at least one of the movies after 7/8/9?   The actors don't age or get arrested.

Ok, after last nights game, I have to deliver this proclamation......

National Anthem Singers.... I don't care how respected, talented, lauded, awarded, hipster approved, 'Merican, Street, CMT Approved, Gospel, alternative, or Kardashian approved that you are.... please sing the song as it was written and arranged.

Oh and the Cowboys won... still a better chance they go 1-15 than win the Division or even get to 8-8.

I passed on the subscription... from thinking I'd sign up everybody in the family so I could army build to none....

They look cool and I want it to succeed but just not spending the $$ on figures these days.

I don't think there are that many that would like to see PT figures go away entirely

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers...............

Princess Leia (Tantive IV)
Death Squad Commander
Imperial Commander
Toryn Farr
Han Solo (Carbonite)
Lando Calrissian
Bespin Guard (Vintage)
Wedge Antilles (Snowspeeder)
Princess Leia (Bespin Escape)
Captain Piett
Lieutenant Sheckil
Emperor w/ Chair
Dash Rendar

Per the front page, Hasbro has confirmed that this is online only...

They forgot to mention  Which is where I've had to buy more figures lately than anywhere else.

It is the reason I have 2 DSTs instead on none.

Ok Trampoline is an Olympic Sport?  With Judges even. 

This would be more interesting if it was again a measurable (objective standard).

Maybe it should be who can bounce the highest or farthest.  Not whether the Judge from Papua New Guinea thinks your flips and "preacher seats" are better than the competitor's from some other country.   And since it is a solo sport there is no chance for the Double Bounce.

Without making this too "pit worthy", my favorite part of the games so far happened today.

The Saudi Female who competed in the Judo match today is a story I would suffer through during prime time.  Even if she got beat in less than a minute and half.

A young lady who wants to compete and went against bigger "odds" than just getting to the gym.  She was a blue belt and went against black belts, fearlessly.  That is the Olympic Spirit and it looked like everybody there supported her.

I will let you guys debate whether it was right to make a concession for her Hajib and all the other politicized aspects of it in the cesspool, ER uh Slime pit, Sarlaac Pit.

And if it turns out she and her parents did this for pure personal attention then I will be disappointed, as it stands though I say yay.
