Welcome

This blog is about sports and sports cards. Which both I love to talk about. My teams are as follows - MLB - Chicago White Sox, NCAA - Michigan Wolverines & NFL - Indianapolis Colts. Although I post my Michigan stuff to another site now - check it out at http://toomanymarios.blogspot.com/

Free cards!

I’ve spent the weekend getting all the cards I’ve received in the last month or so organized, logged in to my have lists, taken off my want lists, and am now trying to get some posts ready to go in the next few days.  Then sometime this week I’ll have to find the time to actually put them all away.  Which also explains why I’m so freaking far behind on reading your posts  I believe I’m probably almost a week behind on all my blogs.  Which isn’t too hard to do since I currently have 446 blogs subscribed to in my Google Reader.  Hopefully I can get caught up at work this week.

I was trying to add more blogs to my blog roll as there are a bunch I follow that I haven’t been able to add.  I got through about half of them, then the stupid blogger wouldn’t save anymore.  I click save, it say’s saving, but never goes away or save’s.  I guess I’ll try again sometime this week.  Sucks because I was on a roll getting them logged in.  I probably would have been done in another 10 or 15 minutes when it stopped.  Something like that always happens when I finally get time to do something.

Before I get into the free card, saw this on Twitter.  For those of you who don’t know who Oney Guillen is, it would Ozzie Guillen’s son.

Even Siri cannot understand Things Ozzie Guillen Says.

And now that my title has gotten you all reading and looking for free cards.  I received a PWE in the mail about a week ago.  Now if you follow my Ebay habits, which I post on here, then you probably realize I get cards in PWE all the time.  So the envelope itself, wasn’t a surprise.  At least until I opened it and out fell this.

Apparently Ted at “Crinkly Wrappers” actually reads what I write, or at least he did once.  I had posted how much I liked this card, probably when I received the sparkly version of it.  Tom Seaver, who is a player collection, White Sox, which is my favorite team, and the old style uniforms that I like.  Ted and I have traded in the past.  But along with this card, came this note

I think we’ve probably all said it at one point or another, people in this great community of ours are just awesome.  Sorry, about tricking you into reading this post with my misleading title, but your life will be better having seen that card.  I did it for your own good.

Thanks Ted, it’ll look great right next to my sparkly copy.  Be sure to check out “Crinkly Wrappers"

  1. Blogger has been acting up for me too. I can't save changes to my blog roll (and haven't been able to for a couple of weeks). Also, my comments only seem to show up about half the time on other people's blogs...

    1. I know this reply is about a month late, I just found this comment in the spam folder on blogger. So maybe that's whats happening to your comments. As far as the blog roll, I still can't add anything.

  2. Nice card ! I did a trade with Ted once. Got a very generous response back.

  3. You didn't trick us...it was a free card! A nice one at that. I can second the motion that Ted is a great trader.

    1. I like it, almost as much as the sparkly version.

  4. Ozzie has bought over 250 iPhones this year. They are all piled in a corner like Milla in Resident evil.

    Tom Seaver is actually superimposed over a much more recent game.

  5. I have this same issue on my blog with importing Reader's blog list. I believe the cutoff is 250. I feel that if I can't include all the current blogs on my blogroll then it isn't fair to about 80+ people I can't add. Then I sit there and go over each blog to see which one hasn't updated in months and I am still way over the limit.

    1. I didn't know about the superimposed but looking at it, it certainly could have been done.

      I don't think I've hit 250 yet, but I'm close. I'll have to look. I just added your blog to my reader. We'll see if blogger ever lets me add it to my blog roll.
