Card Bloggers Unite and Other Stuff

It has been a little while since I have posted anything. Few things told me I should probably write something.

1. Spring Training is here.
2. I’m about to fall off the blog roll.
3. I got stuck in the snow.

You might think that stuck in the snow is no big deal that shit happens from time to time. Under normal conditions you would be right; the thing is though, I live in Phoenix. I wasn’t really stuck like my car wouldn’t move though. See last summer sometime my windshield wipers quit working. I didn’t know how to fix them and it wasn’t any big deal because it doesn’t really ever rain here and when it does it doesn’t pour or anything. We get that bullshit amount where you have to turn your wipers on and off over and over again because it doesn’t come down hard enough to leave them on. So anyway I get out to my car yesterday and it is covered in snow. I scraped it off with my hand and started to drive but I didn’t get a block before it was covered up again and no wipers to clear it off. Basically the sign that I need to get off my ass and fix the dam car which made me think “I need to get off my ass and write a post”.

As you may or may not know I have a Fantasy League called Card Bloggers Unite. As you probably gathered from the league name it consists of a bunch of card bloggers. 2013 will be our 4th year of the League. Dayf somehow came from next to last place in 2011 to win the championship in 2012. I was a real fucking injustice too since he named his team after a pastel girl’s toy horse. I sent out a league renewal yesterday and half the league has renewed already. We usually lose at least one every year so after a week I may be asking for new participants.

I have received a bunch of packages lately. The latest one was from Cards on Cards. It wasn’t your ordinary package either. You would think a guy with a blog called Cards on Cards would send cards right? Well this time he sent a truck.

To be honest he sent cards too but just because I got off my ass to write a post doesn’t mean that I got the gumption to break out the scanner and it was easier to yank the truck image off ebay than it was to search out the cards he sent. Technically there is a card with the truck though so it is still card related.

Thanks Kerry! I’m working on a return package but it will be all cards, no truck.

I thought you got lost in the desert!

Welcome back, and yeah, fix yer dang wipers! Don't you have inspections out there?

Our inspections consist of an emissions test, that is it.

That truck was my "bonus" item in some repack I bought awhile back. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting.

It rarely rains and it doesn't snow there? You mean when you make weekend plans you actually get to do them? That's not fair.
