JD Sports Forum! / Re: Sammy Sosa busted with a CORKED bat!

Just heard Sammy got suspended for 8 games.  Mistake or intentional, you knew that was coming.

And I also agree that Rose should be in the HOF.  Hopefully his lifetime ban will be lifted soon (all I hear he has to do is apologize).  I wonder, if and when the ban is lifted, would it tarnish him so much that he wouldn't be a first ballot inductee?

I own exactly one 12" figure, the Han and Tauntaun.  However, when I find him, this bad boy is coming home to my apartment.  He will be a centerpiece in my eventual Gammorean Guard collection (which I haven't gotten around to starting yet, unless you count the POTF2 fig and the Applause figural mug.  Maybe buying this will jump start that collection)

I agree that Urlacher is a great LB, but don't you think the absent of Roosevelt Colvin would hurt his production and vice versa?

Colvin signed with the Pats, which is excellent for us, because he's a top notch player, especially in the run stopping department, which is where the Pats sucked last year.  But from what I'm hearing, the reason they were both so good is that they played off each other's strengths and weaknesses.

I saw it, but really wasn't paying attention.  I'll probably catch it again during one of the hundreds of repeats MTV shows.  I fell asleep so I missed Gollum, which I want to see now.

I'm still reading Debt of Honor by Tom Clancy.  I'm almost finished with it, only about another 80 pages or so.  After that, it will be the quick read (2 days max) of SW: Force Heretic II: Refugee.  After that and in perfect time, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which is finally almost here after 3+ years.  Can't wait.

Can't let this thread die to the depths of page 2 ;)

Posh Spice.  The Spice Girls are a somewhat guilty pleasure of mine.  Now ordinarily, their type of music is not my style, but some of their songs have the habit of getting stuck in your head.

Power of the Force 2 / Re: Favorite Ship
« on: June 5, 2003, 10:53 AM »
I kind of like the Bwing.  Its just an awesome uniquely designed ship.

The Clone Wars Republic issues and one shots are top notch.  The Empire series has been hit or miss.

Wow, has it been 10 years already?  I'm getting old  ???

The first was excellent, the second not so much, the third somewhere in between.  And a fourth one (hopefully alongs the lines of the first one) should have been obvious from the ending of III, with the pteradons flying away from the island.  Dinos in populated areas?  

Thumbs up to Clonetrooper and Chewie.  I'm a little iffy about the Luke Xwing pilot though.  I really can't see much "Unleashed" about a dude sitting in a cockpit.  But I love this line and will hold judgement until I see pics.

Wasn't he also in Godzilla vs. Megalon, where he teamed up with the G-man to take down the dastardly duo of Megalon and Gigan?  :P

I play for my wife's company softball team.  This is a co-ed league where five women must play.  (You can play with four, but when the fifth is due up, she's an automatic out).  If you have anything less than four, you forfeit.  Three forfeits and you're out of the league permanently.  They've had some problems with women showing up last year, so they go out and recruit 9 women to play on the team, figuring "Hey it won't be a problem to get 5 to show up to a game".

We had a game last night, 8:45 pm start. (plenty of time to get home from work, eat dinner and relax before the game).  Guess how many women show up for the game?  3.  Out of 9 women, we get a 1/3 of them and one of them is not even on the roster, she's a friend of one of the girls.  

Now I have no problem if you have prior commitments and tell the manager that.  What I have a problem with is saying you're going to be there, ready to play and not show up.  You're wasting our time, our money (the players have to pay the umpire fees, $20 / game, unless you forfeit and then you have to pay the other teams also) and most importantly, the company's money, who paid the entry fees, etc. for us to play.

The manager is being alot more civil about this problem than I would be.  I had similar problems when I managed my company team last year and it really made my blood pressure rise.  (One of the main reasons why we didn't field a team this year)

Keep in mind that we all know we're not playing in the World Series and its just a game, but we do want to play.  If you don't, let us know so we can find someone to replace you.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Star Wars references in other movies?
« on: June 3, 2003, 03:33 PM »
Just movies or does TV count? If so, then the Simpsons has a ton of SW references in it.

On to movies:

-Armageddon: where Luke Wilson and BenLo debate who's Chewie and who's Han
-ET has tons: Walrusman, Greedo, Hammerhead and Boba Fett action figures and Yoda during the Halloween scene
-Close Encounters of the Third Kind: R2 is seen on the alien mothership
