For anyone interested in comics in the Dallas area...

I'll have a couple tables at the Dallas Comic Con Saturday January 12th (11-6) and Sunday Jan 13th (12-4) at the Richardson Civic Center on Arapaho (right to the west of Hwy 75) trying to get rid of some of these comics I've been hanging on to for far too long.  I'm bringing a few boxes of used gaming stuff, but as this is a comic event I'm figuring most of the people there won't be interested in used gaming items.  Anyway, if you are in the area, come check out the show, it's only $5 entry fee and there are a lot of artists, writers and media guests attending.  I'll probably be the only guy there with both comics and used gaming stuff...and I'll have the vicious pink shrew at my booth so you'll know it's me...so if your'e an Aceaum member I haven't yet met come introduce yourself!

I hate the Big 10 or shall we now call it the Powder-Puff league.  Big 10 teams should be ban from BCS bowl games.  We just cannot compete with the SEC and the Pac 10 conferences.

Good luck, Mike, on the comic show.

I know it sucks to lose two years in a row in the national championship game but you can't have a defeatist attitude like that.  What about Michigan?  They pasted a damn good Florida team and no one expected them to do that.  You should be happy you arent an ACC or Big East fan.  Talk about bad bowl game showings.

Sorry man...

I undestand what you say about Michigan.  But remember they lost to Applacian (SP) State.  The loss heard around the world.  The Big 10 just does not play at the level of the SEC or Pac 10.  Every year we get pasted in the bowl games.

Has anybody ever played the board game "RuneBound?"  If so, any recommendations?

It looks cool.  I might like to pick it up for my game group to try, but I don't know anything about it.  Any of you guys ever play it?

Yeah..didn't we discover everything :wink:

As for the Big Ten, it is changing...More spread offensive minded coaches and mobile QBs.

Looking forward to seeing what Penn State looks like with Darryl Clark at QB.  He probably won't be another Michael Robinson, but he shows flashes of raw speed and talent.

Dumbest thing I have read all year (so far):

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22559988?gt1=10755

What's next?  Are they going to ban drinking in bars?  Ten dollars says the idiot councilman who proposed the bill wont get reelected next term.

Loved the game.  Green Bay, playoffs, lots of snow, Favre in top form.  My god, doesn't get much better than that.  Now I'm just praying for a Packers-Pats Super Bowl.   :D

That would be a great Bowl. Out of the remaining AFC quarterbacks, I'm sure Favre would want Brady to be the one who beats him.

Brady did beat Favre last year..sure he's over that, but it'll be good to see Randy get pushed around by our defense like old times :) (There would be a shit load of penalties for pass interference on both sides with that match up).

POLITICS

....often a tricky subject on an international forum I suppose.  However, I just wanted to say congratulations to our US collecting colleagues on your country's excellent Presidential nomination race thus far.  I have been watching some of the coverage here (it gets quite a lot of media space on this side of the Atlantic), and I am well impressed with the passion and drama you put into the whole process.  Great stuff!!  Looks like you are going to have a very interesting political year ahead.  As a few people here know, I work for rights/enviro campaigning organisations (aside from being a student) and like many such people am a keen follower (addict) of political campaigning both here and abroad.  And there seems to be loads to follow.  Keep it up!!

ps. so as our European members don't feel left out - well done to the French President too.  Carla Bruni  Wow  8O   8O

pps. apologies for derailing this forum from its usual tracking of the US Football coverage.  Go Boston 49-Sox-Packers (or whichever the team is...)  :wink:

Okay..I now shall put out a contract on your collection for such remarks.

Course if Al won't step foot in London-Paris-Walmart (or whatever you call your city), I'll get someone, with extra to break some fingers so such things can not be typed again :) :wink:

Giants 21, Cowboys 17!!  YEEAHHH!!  GO BIG BLUE!

How sweet it was to watch that bigmouth jerkoff Owens crying crocodile tears on national TV.  Oh, yeah! -- he'll be great locker room poison for next season.  Nice hire, Jerry!~

And to hear all the TV "experts"  mutter and backpeddle to hide their bitter disappointment after kissing Tony Romo's a$$ on a daily basis since last week?  Priceless!

Icing on the cake:  Watching as Wade Phillips kisses his two precious asst coaches, the ones that made him and Romo look so smart, goodbye.

ON A SIDE NOTE: Anybody see the Indianapolis game?  I did, and I really didn't care who won... UNTIL the halftime break.  The league honored a group of kids who had won the local Punt, Pass and Kick competition.  One of the kids was a little girl of 14 or so, who had won in the New England area.  She was wearing a Pats jersey.  (All the kids wore their local team's colors)

The classless Indianapolis crowd actually BOOED this little girl!!  :x

I was rooting for SD after that, and karmic justice prevailed.
Shame on those fans, they deserved every ounce of what they got!!
