I was going to post something Mizzou related, but never gathered the stuff. Usually I am in the thick of things and would be complaining about the Tigers losing last week, and figuring they have no chance this week. However, I don't care. It's not to say I won't listen to the game. ESPN2 isn't on at my place so I can't watch it. I'll keep up with it, but my attention is on the Royals and the handful of contests I entered to try to get World Series tickets. It's a long shot, but worth a shot anyways. I did just read that West Virginia beat Baylor, so that should make some certain bloggers happy. :)
Ok, lets look at some random stuff.
I pulled this card from a pack earlier this year. I am a big wrestling fan, so this was a sweet pull. I have had better luck pulling relics and such from wrestling than from any other packs. I am a fan of Edge's wrestling, so this is staying put in my wrestling binder. Don't worry, I don't have a huge binder filled with just wrestling, I also have NASCAR, Basketball, and other motorsports all in the same binder.
Let's move on to Obscure. I pulled this pack earlier this year from a Walmart box that had 15 packs in it. I had never heard of these, and after I opened them up, it made me feel like a kid again. While it didn't have any Royals, it had players I liked, such as Robin Yount. These cards came out when I was 11, so if I had known about these, I would have jumped all over them.
Let's move on to Yankees. This pack might have come from the same box, I can't remember. I'm not a Yankees fan, and most of the cards in this pack were from one of the years Upper Deck had unlicensed cards, so it was a bit odd. Nothing too great, though I might have pulled a Johnny Damon card, so it worked for me. I remember getting a Red Sox pack too at some point, which I was more excited about because until recently, I collected the Red Sox.
A while back I showed off a St. Louis Cardinals lottery ticket. This time I have the St. Louis Blues. I scanned them before I scratched them off unlike last time. The results were the same though, as I didn't win. Maybe next time I'll try my luck on the Kansas City Chiefs ticket the convenience store had.
While I didn't include any Royals in this post, Zack Greinke is a former Royals player, so that is close enough for me.
The Mizzou game has started, so I'm going to wrap this up. Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend.
