Happy Turkey Day
November 24th, 2011 by slangon

Thanksgiving is upon us, and I have to say, this is one of my favorite holidays of the year. It combines all the cool things (stuffing yourself on food and booze, watching foosball all day and hanging with family) but doesn’t have a lot of the stressful things involved in other holidays like Christmas (figuring […]

Some Birthday Cards
June 30th, 2010 by slangon

Last Saturday happened to be the 36th anniversary of the day that Derek Jeter popped out of his momma’s womb. It also happened to be the 36th anniversary of the day that I popped out of my momma’s womb. My wifey was cool enough to give me a blaster, a cereal box and a rack […]

Christmas Cards (The Kind Without Glitter) Part VI
January 13th, 2010 by slangon

This is the last of the posts highlighting my Christmas acquisitions, namely the box of ’07 Bowman Heritage I got from Dave and Adam’s Card World. Just to keep people from being terribly bored by this post, I will stick to just the good stuff. Before I get into it though, some quick thoughts / […]

Just in time for everyone to be over 206. I’ve seen a bunch of pack and box breaks of 206 over the last few weeks, and I must admit, the cards look awesome. Not awesome enough for me to decide to collect, though. Instead, I decided I would just try and nail down the Mets […]
