Ever since I returned to the hobby in full force a few years ago, I’ve been reading blog after blog all proposing different ideas which would bring flocks of people to the hobby. More high-end products. More low-end products. Make it easier for set-builders. Make it more exciting for white-whale chasers. For prospectors. For kids. Of course, all of these proposals are worthwhile and needed for any good industry. As someone who is back fully into the hobby I say we don’t need to go out there and expect to find the magic bullet that will More >

Thanks to ESPN, the sports nation was given a glimpse into the new uniform that Notre Dame showcased for the first time in school history. The newly donned “Shamrock Series” uniform brought many Notre Dame faithful either to their feet in jubilation, or to their knees in prayer. Many love, and are embracing the change. While others have been shouting via blogs and twitter for the traditionally bland Notre Dame style to stay the same.

There’s nothing like getting an autograph from one of your sports heroes. I can remember who I was with, where I was at, and how long it took me to get every in person autograph I own.

The season is just twenty games in and anything can happen within the next sixty-two games! I predict there will be some pretty surprising playoff teams and some playoff hopefuls who will not make the cut this year. I will give you my interpretation and knowledge as a fan to predict how the season will turn out and which teams will make the cut this April. More >

Have you ever wanted to try to get your own in person autographs? If so, here is a quick guide that will hopefully encourage you to do so and not just confuse you. Although it may sound like a simple process, and can be, there is a variety of ways in which someone can go about getting in person autographs. Things vary from what you get signed, where you go, what you sign with, etc… I personally have experience doing in person autographs for a sports team in the area, and I will share with More >

When the NHL approved the sale of the Atlanta Thrashers to True North Sports and Entertainment for the purposes of moving the franchise to Winnipeg for the 2011-12 season, the evil R-word (realignment) was going to be a necessary topic of discussion.
A lot has been said since that time regarding realignment, specifically which team(s) should go to what division. There is a lot of lobbying from various people to position their team in the slot that Winnipeg will vacate when they move to the Western Conference next season. Most people would tell you that Detroit, Columbus or More >
