  1. Aw, man! I just did a post on Spud Webb two days ago!

    I guess if I'd looked more closely at the back of the card, I would've realized that and posted accordingly. This is why I'll never be Sportscard Blogger Of The Year.

    But I'm not above plugging myself...

  2. ...forgot to mention: That Spud Webb/Manute Bol image is the best thing I've seen since Brian Roberts (5'9" - yeah right - 175 lbs) played next to Walter Young (6'5", 255) in the Orioles infield.

  3. I did see your post. I thought, "it's his birthday in a couple of days." I'm sure you're closer being to Sportscard Blogger of the Year than I am. :)
