what did she do?

Maybe you need to read more.  ;) This has been all over the online news, radio, and even the TV machine.

Or maybe you need to lighten up cool-aid boy.   ::)

I don't think it's Hasbro's fault.  There really is not a hude market for this.  What is a shame is that if a smaller company had the line (Say Art Asylum) it would still continue.  But hasbro needs huge numbers to make a profit.

I'll miss the bike and sidecar and mostly, a Minecar, but I'm happy with what we've got.

Its really hard to say if there is a hude market or not, without know what a hude market is.   ;)

I'd like to see a full transcript of it, because it wasn't big news here on the local radio on Monday - they played some typical team-oriented comments where he was talking about how all he wanted to do was win and how they needed to play better and yadda yadda yadda, it didn't seem like anything big at the time.

Apparently Owens even had a chat with Romo after the game:

"Owens, despite having 18 passes thrown his way in the loss to Washington, had what was deemed a serious conversation about the offense with quarterback Tony Romo after the game, according to multiple sources.

The types of routes and throws are what concerns Owens, the sources said. The receiver, who the sources said was venting to Romo about his frustrations, has not liked how some of the throws were coming from the quarterback as far back as the season opener. "

And in his own words...

The Cowboys ran 58 offensive plays. They threw it to him 18 times and let Owens run it twice on two end-arounds. Yet when asked if the ball was thrown his way often enough, Owens said: "I would say no. I'm a competitor, and I want the ball...when I don't get the ball, the offense is stagnant."

Personally, I love Owens as a player and I think his antics are pretty funny, but his mouth has burned bridges and killed teams mid season.

This is still one of the funniest stories I have ever read.   ;D

Beats me, I don't have anywhere to put that thing, and I'm not spending $150 on a training remote - but I assume what you're getting at is that it would have been easy for Hasbro to put one in this ultra-appropriate location.

OR that since a lot of us have the new Falcon, you can easily use this scene with it.  

I think its funny that they still call something like this a "Battle Pack"...they should call it a Snoozer Pack.

Owens is not the same caliber at all.  He's thrived under every QB he's worked with as far as I can remember.  His problem is that he can't shut his mouth and that gets him into trouble.

That really hasn't been a problem here in Dallas.  He's been well behaved for the most part and has put up massive numbers.

You didn't see the press conference with Owens after this week's game?  The one where he blamed their loss on the coaches not getting him the ball enough?  The ESPN guys talked about it afterwards and noted that he was actually thrown to or ran the ball on 20 of roughly 60 plays, indicating that they may actually be using him too much.  Give Dallas a few more losses and you'll start to see him tear that team apart.

No training remote?  WTF?

It should teach you that a guy like Moss, who is as fickle as can be as a football player, is highly dependent on someone serving him well.  Same holds true as for Owens.  With respect to Housh, it only shows he overperformed last year, something I truly enjoyed and benefitted from but guys are expecting him to perform as a #1 which he really isn't.  He is, for the most part, a possession receiver.  And with Ocho underperforming, he's getting hurt too. 

I'd agree that Moss is fickle, though I still don't get why NE is THAT bad this year.  I think its more a combination of conservative play calling and they're just not as good when they aren't cheating.

Owens is not the same caliber at all.  He's thrived under every QB he's worked with as far as I can remember.  His problem is that he can't shut his mouth and that gets him into trouble.

I also don't believe Housh overperformed last year versus this year.  I think the problem with Cinci is their run game.  C. Perry is averaging under 3 yards per carry and inthe games I've watched, defenses are overly focused on shutting down the receivers and preventing big plays.  That should be opening up the run game, but Perry's not doing his part to keep defenses honest and that's killing Housh.  It also doesn't help to have a gimpy Chad Johnson, since he had been drawing double coverage the last few years.

As for focus on RBs, I don't think you'd be enjoying a winning season with Steven Jackson, Brandon Jackson, W. McGahee, or L. Maroney on your squad.  Even LT and AP have underperformed so far this year.  Now if you had Owens, Fitzgerald, Boldin, Marshall, etc. you'd be doing pretty well.

Well, after scoring only 30 points this week I know what NOT to do in next year's draft...

And what is that?  Frankly this season has not taught me anything about who to draft or who will even be a good start next week.  When guys like H. Ward and L. Evans are blowing away R. Moss and houshmanzadeh, what does that teach you?  The only thing I've learned is to not waste so much time preparing for the season since pretty much each and every player has been wildly unpredictible.

A friend helped me out with the Imperial Knights and Cade/Talon comic packs this week...close to actually being caught up for a change!

With the Clone Wars series about to go into full swing, I wonder if the next Kuby series might be of that theme. Any one else interested in a CW line of 'bricks?

I'd be all over this depending on who they make.  I've avoided most of the prequel stuff, but the Clone Wars could be really cool.  I'd love to see a wave something like this:

 - Anakin
 - ARC Trooper
 - Ahsoka
 - General Obi-Wan in Clone Armor
 - Durge
 - Ventress

So anyone else get the vibe that Angela is pregnant.  She's been hooking up with Dwight, and during the weigh-in said that her doctor wants her to gain weight.  I mean, she's petite, but not scary small, so I think its because she's with "Shrute". :)

I liked the way Jim proposed, very much in keeping with how their relationship is, not too formal, but very much focused on all the little things, like where they first ate lunch together, etc.

One of the best scenes was when Holly tried to stop Angela from yelling at Kevin.  I am surprised that Dwight wasn't again punished by Michael for that, like maybe he'd have to make him breakfast, in addition to doing his laundry, plus that way Michael won't burn his foot again (Win-Win-Win).

This was a great episode overall.  The show is at its best when Michael is awkward like this versus when they make him a total jerk (shock does not always equal funny).  The proposal was great and totally threw me off, since Pam seemed to be getting more and more preoccupied at school.  Dwight is still the best thing going on that show.

Damn, yup that's it for him.  Not sure when Parker's due back, but given the pounding he'll inevitably face, and his smaller stature, he'll not last without a competent back-up.

Mendenhall was kickin' some ass last night too.  That's gotta be disappointing for him.

I think its safe to say that having a fractured shoulder is dissapointing whether you're already having a good night or not.   ;)

I have an Excel list of regular figs and major variations dating back to POTF2.  I'm betting the list has 99% of all the major variations that have popped up.  I'm running through now and changing the format on a few things*, but it should be ready in a week or two if anyone wants an Excel based customizable checklist for their stuff.


*I'm fixing it so that you can easily filter on all versions of a single character (i.e. Luke Skywalker and all the versions of Luke that have been made since 1995.
