I already have a Trading card related blog at http://captkirk42.blogspot.com where I post about my collection. I usually post about my recent mail-days over at TCC (Trading Card Central) on my blog there.
Over here I will probably post my Wantlists and Tradelists and try to keep things up-to-date. I haven't really decided how I'll use this one.

January is arguably the most exciting month of the year in the world of sports as we are blessed with the grand event known as the NFL playoffs. Very little if anything can rival this drama filled single elimination tournament of brute force and wills. It is during these playoffs that heroes emerge.

On September 5 2009, I mailed a letter to Alex Burrows. Burrows had gone through a lot last season, when he lost his good friend Luc Bourdon. His whole season was dedicated to him. He scored 28 goals last season (Luc Bourdons number was 28), and by scoring a short handed goal againest the Hurricanes with only a couple minutes left, stopped their losing streak.
