Great day for Chicago sports teams.  Kane has clavicle surgery and Rose needs his knee scoped.

At first I thought Rose must have been a Blackhawks call-up since I had never heard of him before...   :-[

Watched quite a bit of the Pens/Caps game tonight hoping for some good fireworks after Ovi's whack at Letang last time...  what a lame game.  Lotsa boring, sloppy, chippy penalties, some soft goals by Flower, and a general "blah" game from both teams.

Looking forward to Wild Vs. Nashville tomorrow.  Will be a much better test of Dubnyk and the Wild than the fodder we've been chewing up in our post-All Star run here.

Revoltech Stormtrooper Album

I'm obviously not much of a photographer, nor does my apartment make a good studio, but here are some quick pictures I snapped. Mostly some comparison shots with the Black Series Stormtrooper, and a size comparison with the few Black Series figures I have.

With the limited time I've had to mess around with the Stormtrooper, the worst part is that the arms are too short and the legs are too long (as you can see it's REALLY tall, almost as tall as the Revoltech Vader). Now that I've been able to compare everything, the Revo Vader might be a bit on the short side too. That one took about a week of posing to grow on me; the cape is definitely wild, but the sculpt is amazing.

I'll open 3PO (sorry for the typo on Twitter :-[) tomorrow and snap some pictures too. Kinda wishing I had snagged the Black Series R2-D2 when I was seeing it everywhere so I could snap some comparison pics, but I'll just have to wait for the Revo R2 to get here next month.

If anyone has specific requests for pictures (poses, etc.), let me know and I'll try my best to add them when I photograph the 3PO, I kinda half-assed this album.

I'm kind of surprised they're talking season over for a meniscus but I guess it depends on the severity and location of the tear.  It must be worse than peripheral.

No, it's just that it's Glass Joe, I mean, Derrick Rose.  He could get a hangnail and be out for the season.

Ah okay - when I hear 'getting a knee scoped' I think of it as like a quick procedure to clean some stuff up that costs guys like 3 weeks - that seems to be what it usually is in the NFL at least.

As for the timetable, I don't think anything's official and what I read was that they'd have more information after the surgery - but it was a meniscus tear to the same knee that cost Rose like 70 games last season, so I wouldn't be surprised at all if he's done for the year.

At this point I wouldn't be surprised if the guy retired... this is getting old as ****, I can only imagine how he feels.

Wait, is Rose getting a scope or does he have a meniscus tear?

I read meniscus tear yesterday and that his season was over.

Both a scope and a meniscus repair.  I don't think anyone's done a meniscus surgery/repair by anything other than arthroscopic surgery in probably 20+ years.  That's how long ago I had my first one and I've had two more since. 

I'm kind of surprised they're talking season over for a meniscus but I guess it depends on the severity and location of the tear.  It must be worse than peripheral.

but in the case of Kane's hit, they should seriously suspend the other guy for as long as Kane will be out (12 weeks I believe).

I know that this is unreasonable, but in the case of Kane's hit, they should seriously suspend the other guy for as long as Kane will be out (12 weeks I believe).  If you end up hitting someone and it's deemed a dirty hit, the punishment should equal the injury it causes.  I completely understand that hockey is a collision sport and that people are going to get hurt.  I'm not talking about the injuries that occur on a clean hit.  I'm talking about the headhunters out there that are looking to hurt someone (I'm looking at you Raffi Torres).
