Sounds like Junior Seau committed suicide. Don't know how "confirmed" that is.

Hooooly crap. Wow.

Gonna have to look hard at that concussion related syndrome. Seems like there has been a recent spike in these tragedies with former players.

Seemed like a good guy, sorry to hear that.

Yeah, Target has really become a complete non-factor, it's as if they've abandoned the SW line completely. I know some people have reported finding the DS Wave figures there, but all the stores around here, and there are at least 10-12, have not restocked with anything new since January. It's pathetic.

When K-Mart is a better option for new SW figures than Target, you know something's wrong.

All you Marvel guys can have your little Avenger movie, but this is my MUST SEE summer movie.  Your team may have a Hulk, but mine has the GD Batman. :)

Your Team may have a Super Hero with no actual super powers (  ;) ), but our Team has a Scarlett Johannson and she pwns Hathaway.

 ;D

There is one about five miles from my house. I never go there though. Too much like a thrift store.

Oh man, if you think K-Mart is bad, don't ever stop foot in a Rose's. That place makes K-Mart look like Shangrila.

I left the RFT on the pegs yesterday not realizing this was a variant too. I guess I will head back over lunch today and see if he's still there.

S-C-O-R-E!

Picked up the following at K-Mart over lunch:

Kithaba - Brown Headband
Dr Evazan - Non-Pink Scar
Gamorrean Guard
Logray - New Variant
Barriss Offee - New Variant
Bespin Han - New variant

No sign of Aayla, Skeletor, or Wedge.  :(

This store has sucked so badly for so long I almost fell over when I saw new stuff on the pegs. The only reason I even stopped there was that report on JTA's front page. Even so, it was a freaking nightmare getting out of there...all the registers went down for literally about 20 minutes and I just knew if I bailed I would regret it so I stuck it out. Ugh.

Still, new stuff...mmm.

Picked up the Euro-only 3-pack Set # 1 of 3 (Lt. Thire, Yoda, Destroyer Droid) off eBay - the elusive English language version.

Now I just need # 2 of 3 for a complete set.

What are these?  Repacks?

Yep, they are all straight repacks of previously carded figures. Nothing really compelling there, I just like picking up foreign exclusives.

I am already seeing these things show up at Marshall's/TJ Maxx...at least the 6" ones. Not a good sign.

So who will be meeting the Heat in the Finals now?  ;)

Sucks when all playoff suspense is eliminated on the first day of the playoffs after 2 games and one freak injury.

So the draft is done...another crop of interesting late-round picks for the Skins.

I love the people freaking out about them taking Cousins with a 4th...like this creates some kind of QB controversy. Dude was drafted solely to replace John Beck, whom they IMMEDIATELY released after making the pick.

God forbid RGIII gets hit by a car crossing the street next week and the franchise is ham-strung for the next 3 years with no first round picks.


BPA...it's not rocket science.

Heading out shortly for a 3 Walmart run with no expectations...

I thought the Giants picked David Wilson?  ;)

I've read a lot of articles since last night, and nearly all of them say that everyone and their mother knew that the Giants wanted Martin, and the Bucs traded back up specifically to get in front of them and ruin their night.

They reached for Wilson.

I tend to give the Giants the benefit of the doubt on draft strategy, they do it better than any other team IMO.

I'm admittedly biased, because I watched nearly every Tech game but not so many Boise State, so I'm only speaking from what I have observed personally. But David Wilson is GOOD. Not saying the other guys isn't, or won't be better ultimately, but I don't think it was as much of a reach as some might.

Cleveland and Miami just reek of QB desperation...I think they made those picks to appease their fanbase than because they really deserved to be drafted that high.

LOL, what's the point?

If we vote, they won't make them.

If they made them, there would be no articulation.

Even if they made them, AND articulated them, you couldn't find them in stores.

Sorry, filled with remorse and disgust at the same time...

Another month about to expire, another deadline missed on the Mando Shuttle. I guess EE is now going to say "Coming in May!" like anyone will believe that.

What angers me is that Hasbro actually TOLD people to go out and buy it from EE directly, giving the impression that they had worked out some kind of deal where these would find imminent release.

Apparently not.

I don't get it. Did they only make like 1000 of these? Why is it so hard to produce more and get them into circulation?

After getting burned on those DVD sets, damned if I'm going to overpay for this thing only to have it go the clearance route six months from now.

The Bucs walked away with the top safety and the second best RB.  I couldn't be happier.

What a weird draft last night was. I did not watch last year's at all, but the coverage was a lot more disappointing that I recall from years past.

First off, where were the war-room cams? Where were the interviews with GM's, coaches, etc reacting to their picks/trades/etc? We got NONE of that. Even the player interviews seemed rushed.

Second, there seemed like a LOT of intentional delays...I was constantly seeing "Pick Is In" and then it would be like another 5 minutes before the Commish sauntered up to the podium. I understand things are happening quickly, and it is a TV event for fans, so they want to milk each selection for all it's worth, sell advertising, etc but after awhile it just seems contrived. Teams were putting in picks FAST, they probably could have wrapped it all up in two hours without all the fluff.

I did find all the trades interesting, teams giving up multiple picks to only move up a couple of spots. Seems like a lot of teams fell in love with a certain guy and just got locked in.

I don't think anyone had a "bad" draft (and honestly who even knows for a few years) but if I was a Rams fan I would be coming away kind of disappointed. They didn't get Blackmon, Richardson, or any kind of OL help for Bradford. Stockpiling picks is nice but that team needs talent, not just role-players.

I also liked Gruden playing devil's advocate and showing some clips from guys he had concerns about, that was a refreshing realty check for all the unbridled optimism.

Anyways, RGIII is in the house, so all is right with the world.  ;D

Wasn't he in charge of the GI JOE line prior to taking over Star Wars?

I gather there has been a lot of similar frustration with that line the past few years.

I wonder if he will accept a LinkedIn invite from me? I have a lot of thoughts to share...
