Nope, like the Dallas Stars after them no way in H-E double hockey sticks will I ever root for a team who left the fine state of Minnesota

And the only thing I see the Lakers 4-peating this year is their losses in the first round to either the Spurs or the Kings...

KG sure put on a show on Friday adding another notch in his MVP resume belt...we shall see

I will as I told DennisTPM lay claim to all of Lakers titles they won while playing Minnesota s ours and not California's, you can take the Magic and Crybaby years, George Mikan, Vern Mikkelson, John Kundla and Bud Grant (yep that Bud Grant) were ours not yours...

BTW where is the nearest actual real lake to LA???  Tar Pits don't count

I saw the message this morning Bob and I was going to e-mail you about the hoax.  Don't feel bad as I have gotten this note numerous times.  Thanks for the thought though because viruses do suck...

I got numerous viruses from the guys at TheJawa last year (Sircam?) which is why you should never take these things too lightly

Looks like Chris took care of me Matt :P  I also notice he is also a Pepsi drinker, curious

My all time favorite pop has to be Mountain Dew though so I can't bad mouth the Pepsi family too bad

BTW, do you say pop or soda or (Brad I'm looking in your direction) everything is a Coke

Ice Cold Coca Cola, the nectar of the gods.  But as I said in the exercise thread I really can't touch the stuff so I drink diet pop...and I actually prefer Diet Pepsi

FYI, when they changed the Coke recipe back in the 80's they actually were changing it to taste like sugared Diet Coke.  All taste tests pointed to it kicking Pepsi's arse and when it was released it fizzled big time.  I still remember that and how pissed people were.

I've seen the New Coke still packaged as Coke II every now and then and only in 2 liters, I was going to buy some next time I saw it because I haven't had it for a long while 8)

I was usually Luke because I was the 2nd oldest in the neighborhood and my friend Wayne wanted to be Han.  While playing GI Joe I was always Duke...

Thanks to all of you guys for checking us out, I don't want to bad mouth Galactic Hunter too much cause I still like the site very much but its largest problem is that hardly any of the long time members collect anything any more, they're there just to socialize really.

RS is a lost cause. I, and everyone here excited about our future and we welcome you all to the site with open arms :)

Now my avatar...the most imfamous background character in Star Wars history needs no introduction...and he will be made in 3 3/4" Action Figure form someday :)

Thanks fellas, yep that is my new basement complete with the vintage Wallpaper.  I was actually thinking of taping up all of the card backs I have saved to make a newer looking more SW wallpaper.

Those Extend-a-Shelves are Wal Mart specials, they aren't that cheap though either ($7-$8) a piece.  I was thinking of either painting them or putting some wood grained contact paper on them but I was too impatient to peel wallpaper or do that and I just put it all up.

All I have left to do is hang my ships from the ceiling :o

I too am 6'4" :)  Last time I stepped on the scale I was 210, I think the highest I was was around 245 and the lowest since college was 203

I am not really fat I just have no muscle, I am a pretty stereotypical nerdy engineer I guess  :P

I never really gained the Freshman 15, our campus Food Service was terible and I wasn't huge into partying at all.   Plus I also lived about two miles from campus and walked to school every day (try that with -60 wind chill ;)) add in Basketball and Volleyball and I was in good shape.  This got me by until Mr Married with a Desk Job showed up.  There is this awesome little cafe within walking distance of our office which makes the best breakfasts imaginable.  I would eat the #1 (two eggs, hasbrowns and toast) almost four times a week.  Let's just say I put on a ton of weight...ugh.  Well, to be honest I'll tell you what I did.  My wife joined Weight Watchers.  She wasn't happy with the weight she also put on after we got married.  While I didn't officially join I sort of played along and was able to knock off around 35 pounds within 6 months.  I have been hovering there +/- 5 pounds for about two years now.  I still have about 10 to go to get to my College Weight but I am happy and healthy where I am now.  

I'll just say that it is a constant struggle to keep it off, a few weeks of going back on the leaded sodapop or having a few doughnuts and the pants will start feeling a little tight and its back on the wagon I go

On top of all that I started to jog right after college but my wife won't jog with me so I kind of gave that up.  I was up to around 5 miles a run at one time and I really enjoyed it.  We go on evening walks now when the weather permits with our son in stroller around some of the Lakes in town.  It is good excersise but I need to try and start running again.  Maybe this thread will be my inspiration.  One of my dreams is to run a marathon...someday
