And another night with a blatanly bad call that turned the tide of the game.

I'm hoping this off season that MLB will do something about adding an instant replay.  Something like the NFL were another member of the umpiring crew can call down to the field on close calls.  That's at least twice that a blatant screw up has gone in favor of the Chi Sox. 

I know the next pitch to Konerko could have been differnt, or whatever, but we still got a completely blown call.  I also don't think this time it's really anyone's fault other than the umpire.  Jermaine Dye even acted confused when he was awarded first.  Come on umps, get a clue!!!!  Don't make such an important call, late in the game, so quickly.

We're finally dropping on the Northeast side of Dallas.  We are now around $2.50 a gallon.  I'd love to see it drop back to the early 90's price of $.80 a gallon.

Like the title says, I picked up two black clone pilots and would like to trade them for shocktroopers or 501st if anyone has seen them yet. Let me know if you can help a collector out.  I'd prefer the clones above, but will consider Red/Green clone commanders and Commander Bly.

UPDATE:  I also picked up a Commander Gree yesterday and am looking to trade him as well.

Have you ever been to Texas for an extended period?

That's also pretty narrow minded don't you think?

Must be nice guys.  I live in Texas, and the lowest I've seen is $2.67, and I had a full tank that day.  Most places are still $2.80-2.90.

I was so excited watching the 'Stros mount their comeback.  Like John, I didn't think STL would be able to do anything.  Then a couple of baserunner's later I started to worry a bit.

Then the commentators start talking (like they always do, just shut the **** up so I can watch the game without your ******* rambling!!), the mentioned giving Pujols a diet of sliders.  What the hell!!!!  You can't go up there and throw the same pitch every time.  The hitter will get his timing down and then hit a majestic blast, just like Pujols did.  Lidge needed to throw slider, fastball, then changeup on consecutive pitches to throw off the hitter's timing.

But the Astros are throwing Oswalt tomorrow and Clemens on Thursday, so there is still hope to see a World Series game in Texas.  Too bad it's not my Rangers.

Power of the Force 2 / Is there a POTF trilogo Bespin Han??
« on: October 17, 2005, 07:48 PM »
Just like the title says?

I've got all the basic POTF2 Han Solo's on trilogo cards (being a Han collector), but I can't seem to find this particular variation.  I've asked some of my UK buddies, but they don't seem to know either.

Can anyone help me out here?  If so, are you looking to deal?

I've been trying to pick up a ROTJ Hoth Han for a while and was outbid in the final minutes on one yesterday.  So I waited and sniped one yesterday afternoon.  The bubble is a little yellow, but I finally go this.  My MOC focus right now is trying to get a Han on each cardback, SW, ESB, ROTJ, and POTF. I'm going for a basic run and then may go back later and try for different cardback variations.  I'm trying to get one Han in each outfit on each cardback.  The SW/ESB smuggler gear outfits are going to cost me a bit so I decided to start kind of low end.  I'll post pics sometime of my run.

I agree that the umpire blew the call and unfortunately for the Angels, it put the winning run on 1st.  However, over the course of a 162 game season, plus playoffs, the umpires get it right 99% of the time.  From the angle of the umpire, it couldn't tell if the ball bounced or not...I give him that, he can check with the infield umpires on that, but they clearly deferred the call to home plate on consultation.  As a baseball fan, I hate seeing this happen to any team...even if it had been the Yankees.

The problem to me lies with the umpire giving the out signal as he had been doing all night long on both third strikes and outs.  That to me was a bad call by the umpire.  But, had the Angels hit the ball a little better, or had Mark Buerhle (sp?) not been in the groove as he was, the 9th inning strikeout wouldn't have mattered.  Although the call was blown, this is one of the things that makes baseball interesting to me.  The human error factor can change the direction of a game.

I hope my points here didn't sound like someone rambling on.

Star Wars Ships and Vehicles / Needing custom/real X wing canopy
« on: October 10, 2005, 08:48 AM »
I'm not sure if I should put this in the trading section or the custom parts need, so I'm just making a new thread.

I'm looking for either a vintage or modern X wing canopy.  If one of those can't be found, I wouldn't mind a custom canopy.

I know some of you guys do casting and if someone could help me out so I can finish a custom X/TIE ugly that I've been stalemated on due to not having the one part I need to finish. 

I can pay or trade stuff that I might have that you need.  Just let me know if anyone can help me out.  Thanks.

Item pending.

Just like the title says, I'm looking for a green clone commander.  I've also got the red and green clone 3 packs.

I'm looking for 501st, red shocktroopers, and the green clone commander
