Marquee for me

On a wrestling note - amazing to see Daniel Bryan cleared for in-ring action after two years. If you haven't seen his heart felt speech for coming back which started off Smackdown last night, well worth watching - can tear a guy up.

I hope he takes it easy to start (yeah - didn't really work out that way by the end of the show), and really, just gets to a major events and some TV show type position. I would rather have a half time Daniel Bryan for 5-10 more years than a full time Daniel Bryan for a few months.



Slow continuance of the completion towards 2008-09 O Pee Chee today. A decent enough highlight. As for about a cup of coffee in the NHL. His career line includes three games, that's it. I know not all players chosen for base set rookie card design can be winners, so I guess the up side is he did play in the NHL. A mark many baseball players don't reach regarding the majors.

The rest


I don't know why I really like the Andre Miller card with the basketball such a focus on the card, but the angle makes it really a cool card in my opinion. Otherwise, a nice Calderon Raptors card too.

  1. When it comes to DB, I hope he's been barred from doing the diving headbutt from the top..

    1. Absolutely 100% agree. It isn't necessary to be in his move set anyway.

    2. That and He Who Shall Not Be Named by WWE did the same move and had the brain of a severe Alzheimer's patient by time of death.
