My Friday 11/21/2014:
Get up around 7:25
Watch some Video Game Nerd videos on YouTube.
Work on some BCB drafts (Reinbach).
Took a nasty spill and got quite the welt on my shin.
Go to work for a couple hours, doing medical device stuff.
Took my car in for a recall about the power steering going out (it had gone out before, but was ok on this drive, thankfully.)
Got a ride home from my wife.
Watched The Sword in the Stone for the first time since I was a kid.. man, I LOVED that movie.
Wrote that "my first bad Sportlots experience" post.
Went to "Friendsgiving" at a friend's house.. lots of food, games, and booze. Good times.
On a whim, we went to a club downtown and saw Macaulay Culkin in his band Pizza Underground play songs about Pizza. Seriously! This is a real thing! I love the Velvet Underground.. I love silliness.. I love pizza.. and I love pop culture references like Macaulay Culkin.. so this band is right up my alley. It was a really fun, amazing/terrible show!
Came home and drafted up part of this.
Went to bed circa 1:30am.
Got up Saturday circa 8:15am.
My wife dropped me off to pick up my car.
Went to the card show!!!!
Bought 150+ cards for $43.
I'm actually a little overwhelmed where to start blogging about the card show pickups. So instead here's a recap of the cards I've gotten on Listia in the past week or so.
|I never watch wrestling, but man, AJ Lee. Wow. I can't resist.|
|Bubba Smith! Yeah, it seems most of the football oldies I like are ones who later became actors. Dick Butkus. Alex Karras. Police Academy's Bubba Smith.|
|Lou Brock with the funny helmet.|
|A couple needs for my 73 Topps setbuild. That McCovey is pretty beat-up. But wait! That's no ordinary 73 Topps McCovey!,,,|
|It's a blank back 73 Topps McCovey! Well-- technically not a blank back.. a scribbled-on back. Anybody know the story behind these?|
|Yep, I got an unopened pack of 2013 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects. Let's rip it..|
|Cool. I don't know any of these guys (Zippy? Any scouting reports?). But the below card was also in the pack...|
|Boom! A Gyorko RC refractor. Very nice. A semi-hit card I needed from a guy I collect.. can't ask for more than that out of a pack!|
|That's Macaulay on the left.|
