Unlike the Mets, to whom I converted in the early 80s after my favorite Yankees moved on, my … Continue reading Liveblog: Take One for the Team?
Favre Comes to Jersey
Brett Favre, Post-Retirement Originally uploaded by purpleslog As atheletes go, I'm a big Brett Favre fan.

COMMENT: Cosmic Spider-Man is Broken!
This past March, my sporadic co-blogger Dan did a write-up on the [new at the time] Marvel Knights expansion set to Upper Deck's Vs. System, the trading card game that lets you pit superheroes and supervillians against each other, Magic-style. I'd never played, but owned a few of the random cards that had been distributed … Continue reading COMMENT: Cosmic Spider-Man is Broken!
