Obligatory State of the Blog

As I'm sitting here watching the Rays and Rangers play in game 1 of the ALDS, I'm having trouble focusing on the game with all of the my life events that are coming up.  I'm getting married next Saturday October the 8th and will be leaving on my honeymoon for 10 days starting October 20th.  I'm really looking forward to both of these events (obviously!)  Starting this weekend, I will be doing all of the last minute preparations (haircuts, dentist visits, etc) so I'll be away from my collection quite a bit.  I've got a few trades that I'm going to ship out on Monday and then after that, it will probably be November when I get back to normal blogging and trading.  I'll still be reading and commenting but just not actively trading. I will be going to Chantilly for the card show on the 15th so maybe I'll see some of you bloggers there (let me know if you are going).  Luckily the show fell on the weekend between the wedding and honeymoon and my soon-to-be wife is letting me go (haha).  Yall will have to wait until after Halloween to see the great buys I always find there!

One of the reasons other than lack of material that I have been absent from my blog is that I've been playing a lot of Gears of War 3.  Video Games is another one of my expensive hobbies that have followed me since childhood.  Gears 3 is a great game in my opinion and I'm having a ton of fun playing it.  If any of you other bloggers are on Xbox Live, feel free to add me as a friend.  My gamertag is HAHAyurDEAD  .  Just let me know who you are because I tend to get a lot of random friend requests.

I'll be back soon enough.  See you all soon!


  1. Congrats and good luck. And again, thank you to the O's!

  2. Good luck man! Wish I could go to the Chantilly show, looks like a lot of signers will be there. Congrats on the life events!!!!

  3. How come I never knew you were on Xbox Live before now? Same here. Some days I just rather plop on the couch and game rather than blog. Heresy, I know! I'll hit you up w/ a request. My gamertag is DuoconFlywheels. I don't have Gears 3, but I've got several others we ma hav a mutual interest in.
