I'm a nerd and you don't care!

But I'm posting anyway...

How many of you have heard of Captain Marvel, Earth's Mightiest Mortal? I know Simpson's and Family Guy have referenced him...he's a little kid named Billy, granted powers by the wizard Shazam, so that whenever Billy speak's his name, he will be transformed into Captain Marvel, a ridiculously powerful being. In Family Guy, Peter yells "SHAZAM!" at the end of sex with Lois. Anyway....

I play this card game (like Magic), based on comic book superheroes called Vs. It's both Marvel and DC, so it's a lot of fun.

The newest set had a prerelease today (I couldn't attend though), with a set based on Infinite Crisis. Captain Marvel has a card. When you see his stats, he's extremely weak, as weak as Mary Jane's card.

But wait! You can make him more powerful than other characters! How? By actually saying "SHAZAM!" Doing so will temporarily increase his stats.

That's the coolest thing I've ever heard (and goes to show you all just how sad my life is!).

SHAZAM!

Trade

Harden for Abreu, huh? Seems like a better deal than the Sizemore/Sheets deal that I fleeced Timmy with.

How are the people involved liking the new type of league so far? I personally dig it.

 

What's the verdict?

Roasted Pumpkin Seed -- awesome, or totally awesome?

Resident Idiot

Hey guys. I told Jake and Erik about this video this weekend...it's a video two high school friends of mine made back in the day that's a parody of Resident Evil. The sound kind of sucks (it's out of sync) but you still get teh point. Click here to view it.

Share a Joke Day

So let's share jokes that we've heard / read recently.

Wall Street insiders are abuzz with the rumor about an impending joint venture between Wurlitzer and Xerox. They could team up to produce a reproductive organ.

Blogger Craps Itself

Other than effectively neutering 173 today, the Blogger crap-out should be over after tonight. I managed to push the missing posts to the frontpage, for what it's worth.

To recap the weekend -- we totally got rained out on Saturday so we all went to Chris' beachhouse instead. It was such an awesome time that I left my cell phone there to make sure I could visit again later. (Actually, that's not really true. I left my phone because I'm an idiot who didn't check his pockets on the way out.)

Regarding google searches, I don't think there's an effective strategy available short of personable responsibility. Sucky but true. As Elliot Spitzer said, don't email when you can phone, don't phone when you can talk in person, and don't talk when you can nod.

But I don't follow that rule, so whatever. All google searches for my name generally end up leading to the road in lancaster or some dude who makes miniature gaming things.

 

173

Let's see if this works, and I apologize if there are a bunch of posts when Blogger finally updates...

173 Lectures.

 

173

173 Tomatos

 

The answer is

Hey Chris,

It's a parody of the Never Ending Story. Peter is riding that big dog thing and it crashes into the Earth

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

Baseball and Beyond

Fun weekend Jake, Erik, Laurie.

To everyone else, we have to be more careful about what we post about. We found out our blog is easily found in a Google search. No more talking about Mark Fleming's red red hair.

Also, Strulson? Could you tell your pitchers to chill out? I'll let my batters know that they should stop hitting the shit out of the ball as well.
