World of Sports

Hey, I exist...

Here's a pack break, because why not.

I don't remember where I got these.  I just know I scanned these 6 months ago.

Like the drink, only not spelled the same.

Real Salt Lake makes me laugh every time I hear it.  Just trying way too hard to be like a real league.

You probably haven't heard of this guy.  That probably won't change.

Lady golfers.

I wish Rick Fox had recruited me for college basketball.

I love the generic Pryor card.  So funny.

Not sure why this set had such an obsession with lacrosse.  I'm not really sure why anyone would have an obsession with lacrosse.

Unlike almost all 400,000 NCAA athletes, he went pro in sports. Any pro lacrosse collectors out there?

Well looky there, I just blogged.  Been awhile.

NFL Score Streak: The Leftovers

In case you missed it, the Lions won.

Here's what you didn't miss: All of the good cards from the packs I had left over when the contest ended in 10 weeks.

Glossy Flacco RC.  Not bad.

Go Hokies! ...except they listed Wilford as having gone to Virginia.  Yucky McYuckYuck.

Other rookies.  Surprised by the Kalvin McRae...he's shown in his college uni.

I saved the best three cards for last:

I really like how they did the colors on 2008 Score.  It doesn't leave any doubt as to what the color is, but it's not just a basic colored border.  Very nice.

That's all folks.

NFL Score Streak: Week 10

The Bye weeks can't save you now.  Put up or shut up.  Broncos - Lions.  Game on.

This is the week you have all been waiting for.  The Week we will crown a champion.  32 teams became 2 teams.  Now, those 2 will become 1.

Only one team got cards this week.

The winner is:

The Lions are the 2014 NFL Score Streak Champions of the Blog!

Congratulations to their owner, John Hazen! John, please contact me to collect your prize.

Sorry Raz, you finish empty-handed in second place.

Not only did John pick the Lions, but he picked the Lions in Week 10.  Amazing.

However, anyone who picked Week 10 is eligible for the bonus prize.  Here is the list of folks who have a shot:

Matthew Scott
Josh D.
John Hazen

Alright, I put them into and randomized 10 times.  Here are the results:

Congrats Josh D, you won the bonus prize!

Thanks to everyone who followed this contest, I hope you enjoyed it!

Oh yeah, here's the rest of the cards from that pack:

Damn if Eli didn't stick his ugly face into this pack, too.  Eli, go home, it's over, you're done.

NFL Score Streak: Week 9

Broncos.  Lions. It's going to epic...except that the Lions automatically advance with a bye, and the nature of the contest is inherently unexciting.  I mean, I only need to show one Bronco card to move to the next week.  Otherwise, I show nothing and it's all over.

2013 Score.  52 cards.

DENVER BRONCOS - Zac Dysert doesn't give a damn about your bye week.

DETROIT LIONS - Mikel LeShoure shows up on the bye week.  Apparently nobody told him.

I guess you'll have to wait at least one more week for a champion!

Here what's happening in your neck of the woods:

Blue fancy.

Scorecard parallel which is hologrammy and not numbered.

Will next week be the week? Who knows...

NFL Score Streak: Week 8

Lions and Titans and Broncos, oh my!

I'm surprised we haven't had a week where all teams advanced.  Is this the time?

DENVER BRONCOS - Peyton for the Broncos...version 2008.

DETROIT LIONS - Now this is a statement if I've ever seen one.

TENNESSEE TITANS - Eliminated - The Titans just couldn't hang on any longer.

So, with that, we're down to just the Broncos and Lions.  Unfortunately for the Broncos, they are on the hot seat as the Lions have a bye in Week 9. The good news is Week 9 features a 52-card pack.  The Titans would have had a bye in week 9 had they survived.

Here's the rest of the cards:

Haha, Eli showing up after he's eliminated.  Eli gets picked off more than an acne scab on a teenager.  You don't have to worry about Eli coming out of the closet because he always gives it up to the other team.  Seriously, he's screwed more giants than Hagrid.  

Anyway, see you next week.

NFL Score Streak: Week 7

We're down to the final four,
so it's time for more Score,
today's cards from 2008,
Which teams will be great?

Let's do this!

DENVER BRONCOS - Woohoo, Bly is a 757 guy. Chesapeake, represent!

DETROIT LIONS - The Furrey Lion saves them just as he did in Week 5!

NEW YORK GIANTS - Elimated - Where were you on this one Eli?

TENNESSEE TITANS - Titans hold on strong!

So, we drop the Giants to leave us with three teams.  The Giants had a bye for Week 8, so they really blew.  Way to go, Eli.

Can't be too many weeks left, right?

Here's a look at the rest of the pack notables:

Glossy Griese.

NFL Score Streak: Week 6

With only 7 teams remaining, we reach our second 2013 Score rackity packity:

Will more cards translate to more teams moving on? Let's find out:

ARIZONA CARDINALS - Eliminated - Wow, rough start.

CAROLINA PANTHERS - Eliminated - Ouch, two up, two down...unexpected for sure.

DENVER BRONCOS - About time some decided to show up.

DETROIT LIONS - Matt Stafford wanted to make extra sure they moved on.

GREEN BAY PACKERS - Eliminated - Seriously? Three teams on a 52-card week?

NEW YORK GIANTS - Ugh, Eli comes through.  Yuck.

TENNESSEE TITANS - And the Titans move on as well.

So, that was a little shocking.  We lost 3 of 7 teams leaving us with a final four of Broncos, Lions, Giants, and Titans.  

Let's look at the other notable cards from the pack:

Not notable to you, maybe, but notable to me.

JJ Watt is a stud.

Ravens.  Meh.

Love the design, but the images leave something to be desired.  Oh well.

See you next week!
