Quite.  I like 13 and 15.  Not much in the way of dupes there.

Matt, if that Camaro is up for sale, LMK.  Actually don't, my wife would kill me.  For real.  but if he feels like giving it away, I'll happily fly down and drive it back.  

Saw a beauty today while with the kid at the playground.  Navy blue, all original Mustang Fastback.  Oh so sweet.

How about a series of direct-to-video features ala The Ewok Adventures? Like a Jar Jar & Boss Nass buddy movie. They could be the next Laurel & Hardy. (Or not... :P )

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.  Noooooooooooo!  Please, no gungans, no ewoks.

I'm still cheering for Ottawa, but...  Dang, Brodeur is good.  Not that Lalime sucks, but tonight Brodeur was great as he has been so often in the past.  Methinks the Sens were a little cocky heading into the game.  

I fear though that a Giguere-Brodeur final may kill the game in the US.  7 consecutive triple overtime games all ending 1-0.  Old time hockey, Toe Blake, Eddie Shore.  Sure thing Coach.

paploo must die!!


Raving lunatic here.  

My anti-Ewok stance was simply in place to irritate grumpy Ewok up there, but hey, the more the merrier.  

Welcome ;D

All right, so I really don't like this guy.  Everybody knows that right?  The Lakers suck and I think he's stalking me, BUT...

That doesn't mean the pillsbury dough boy here isn't a great trader and a real help to collectors, even Canuckleheads like me.  

Helped me out with the KB fiasco - got my Vader Riddell
Helped me out with the holiday droids - tough find for everyone
Even fired me off a Naboo royal security for cheap.

Now if only I could get him to stop writing Laker slogans on the box.  Canada customs agents hate the Lakers too, so I get nailed with duty.  

Thanks Matt.

JediMAC's response:
Uh... Just to avoid any confusion here for the newer folks, Brent and I are the best of buds.  He's just being a sarcastic smartass here!   ;)   By the way, that was a Naboo Royal GUARD, not Security, B!   :P

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Silver Fett and Clonetrooper coming...

Sounds cool to me.I like these figures alot.Looks like I'm going to have to join the damn Fanclub again tho to get mine.Something I really dont care to do again.

Maybe, maybe not.  I've never been a member of the fan club.  The price to be a member in Canada is rather absurd, particularly after exchange.  I no longer remember the exact amount, but it ran somewhere around $75 or more.  Too steep for me.  

That, however, has never stopped me from ordering anything from the fan club.  I'm not sure why, but I've never had a problem. Got most of the EU stuff through there.  The fan club exclusive four, Wuher and even the stormtrooper 4 pack.  Maybe they have a rule for foreigners ordering, I have no idea.  I just hope I haven't jeopardized that ability by saying this.  

I have to have this Fett.  I have Vader and R2, so I must have this guy.  Hopefully I can luck out with the fanclub again (unless anyone wants to volunteer to help me ;)).  Or not.

Heck no, the Celtics overachieved.  They really never should have gone past the Pacers.   :)

Also, I should have clarified, those quotes are indeed from the ESPN article.  Which in case it wasn't abundantly clear, I found awful.  

Further clarification.  I hate the Lakers.  But that stems from the old series back in the 80s, Magic versus Bird etc.  This is not to say that the Lakers of then were not remarkably talented.  Magic, Jabbar, Nixon were amongst the best if not the best at what they did.  There was a phenomenal supporting cast at the time too.  Perpetual sixth man awards and Rambis and his glasses.  

The recent version of the loathed Lakers has the best center in the NBA bar none.  Probably the best out and out player in Kobe.  It also has a remarkable coach and a reasonable supporting cast.  

What I cannot abide is a bunch of whining on the part of Lakers fans (no, not you specifically Matt) and media.  Fouls are fouls, they need to be called.  Reffing should be fair and even.  

Just to continue my rant about this article Matt linked, this is about the worst analogy I have ever seen in my life:
But it's not Shaq's fault that Rose is only 6-foot-7, and that his elbow is at the level of Rose's face. And, hey, when a big guy and a smaller guy collide, the big guy is the one who's going to be left standing. Is it fair to tag the big guy with a foul because he's bigger and stronger? Using the same logic, every time a small guy jets past a big guy, the refs should call the small guy for traveling."
Great, so by the same token when Rose is posting up on Shaq, because Shaq's 'private parts' are at the same height as Rose's elbows, he should feel free to crank him in the crackers a couple of times?  I thought the by-line said this guy used to be a coach, not a grade 5 student (with all due respect to more sensible grade 5 students)?  

Elbowing a guy in a face to make space is a foul.  End of story.  Doesn't matter if you elbow him in the face or the nether regions.  So too it doesn't matter if you are 7'6" or 6'7" or 5'4".  It's still a foul.  And if the little guy in the author's pathetic analogy isn't dribbling the ball when he blasts past the big guy, yeah, call him for travelling.  They're called RULES.

The turning point in the series was game 3?  That's just a tad arrogant don't you think?  Last I checked, the series was headed back to Texas with both teams winning with home court advantage.  If that stays true, guess who wins the series?

MVP award doesn't count if Shaq hammers Duncan?  What kind of twisted logic is that.  It's a regular season award for heaven's sake.  The Lakers "dogged" it for a good part of the season.  Near as I can figure that regular season record is why Kobe didn't get the nod.  #5 seed with the MVP?  I think not.  Besides, when did an MVP award become more important than a championship?  You don't think fourpeat is more appealing that MVP and lost to Minnesota in the first round?  Duh.  

And, hey, when a big guy and a smaller guy collide, the big guy is the one who's going to be left standing. Is it fair to tag the big guy with a foul because he's bigger and stronger? Using the same logic, every time a small guy jets past a big guy, the refs should call the small guy for traveling."
Is this guy for real?  The game USED to be a non-contact sport.  Now it seems to be a home team gets the calls sport.  Sorry, Shaq great as he is, is kicking the crap out of some guy and not supposed to get called?  Wrong sport, I believe you Yanks call the full contact sport football.  

The NBA wants total control of its product. They want to control the media, the coaches and the players. But Shaq won't kow-tow to the league. He says whatever he wants to say, whenever and wherever he wants to say it. That's why the NBA, and the referees -- who, after all, work for the NBA and are its agents -- don't give Shaq the respect he deserves
Hi, I'm the author and I bleed yellow and purple.  Duh.  The problem is that the NBA has lost control of its product, simply by no longer enforcing the rules.  It's pretty clear this was written prior to yesterday's games.  I could write the same thing just substituting in Duncan's name to get a reversal that would read just as well given yesterday's officiating.  

That's why Jackson is so intent on criticizing the way the games have been officiated. "And you know what?" the coach says. "Taking the refs to task in the media absolutely, positively gets results."

Never were more damning words uttered by a coach.  Great, the officials are so frail and frightened that just slamming them in the media is enough to get calls going your way?  Wow, there's a league I want to support.  Jackson's right though.  Look at the reffing.  One can only hope the San Antonio media is currently berating the refs in their media so the same result is achieved.  

Great logic.  Talent has nothing to do with the outcome of the game.  ...ego, psychology, resourcefulness, and, the mother of all causes and effects, politics.

Yeah, why do I prefer hockey again?
