Lightning beats 730 Fox Sports

Lightning destroyed the station.  Just crushed it.  The station is being rebuilt and I am told will be back up and running tomorrow (Saturday).  I sincerely appreciate the messages from those of you that have missed the show.  The only silver lining in all of this is that we get all new equipment.  Other than that, this has been torture.

Our trip to the National Sports Collectors Convention (Chicago) *w/ Videos

Last year we went to Baltimore for the National Sports Collectors Convention.  I had once read a column that Bill Simmons wrote about him going to the convention for the first time, and decided I had to see it.  After Roser and I got done with our trip last year we decided it needed to be an annual trip.  This year the convention was in Chicago.  We went to a White Sox/ Yankees game one night, sat in the bleachers in Wrigley for a Cubs/Reds day game, and spent the time inside the convention center.  This year we took another one of our buddies, Mark McCleskey, with us on the trip.  I knew that I probably wouldn't feel like loading every pic and writing about what we bought, so this year I brought a video camera.  Here is what we found.
