Song for a Sunday Night

I discovered this video sort of at random:

Acutally I found the above video after finding the one below.

I found the one above because I had heard the one below on the radio and wanted to hear it again.  Of course it's the Goffin and King classic:

The song was a #5 Billboard hit for The Chiffons in 1963:

Good Luck, Ryno!

Ryne Sandberg, who has paid his dues, was rewarded today being named the interim manager of his first team, the Philadelphia Phillies.  I wish him all the best --unless they're playing the Cubs.

2013 Allen & Ginter's Blaster Pack 8

Here's the last pack from my 2013 Allen and Ginter's blaster:
 It's Tom Terrific!  I'm going to quibble.  There are so many better images of Seaver than this one.
 Whoa, two HOF pitchers in a row.  Yeah!
 I've been lukewarm on the subsets.  This I like!
He's Canadian like Ryan Dempster and Fergie Jenkins.
 Can you say Hall of Famer hot pack!
 Mini Goldschmidt
Goldy currently leads the National League with 90 RBI.  He looks like he knows it!

2013 Allen & Ginter's Blaster Pack 7

Two days ago I brought home a blaster of 2013 Allen & Ginter's.  Two packs left.  Here's number seven:
 I wouldn't know Tommy Lee from Bruce Lee.  Well I think I could pick out Bruce Lee and if I had a choice I'd rather have a Bruce Lee card (wasn't he in A&G?)  Anyway it is kind of a cool looking card.
 Since we're playing I'd rather have, I'd rather have an attractive female ESPN personality (though they all seem to be jumping ship for other networks lately.)  Sorry Chris M. but I'd rather have a Chris McKendry card.
 I do like this subset.
Alright!  Still the All-Time Home Run King (to me).
It's Ginter.  It's weird.  I'll take it.
 Mini Choo
 Are these purposely collated so you get mini's and regular cards of the same player in the same blaster?

Last pack tomorrow!

2013 Allen & Ginter's Blaster Pack 6

Continuing to open this bad boy.  Here's pack 6:
Ryno #3  I'm not a huge Sandberg collector but I'll take it.
Choo is having another good year.
Doug has been pitching very well of late and getting a lot of run support as well. 
 I could take or leave this one.
Another one.   :(
 Mini Codes
 Better than the gladiators.
 Here's a short fim made about the Thomas Beale ciphers

Two more packs to go.  Check back later tonight for pack 7.

2013 Allen & Ginter's Blaster Pack 5

  Here comes pack #5 from the 2013 Allen & Ginter's blaster I snagged at Target yesterday.  Pack 1Pack 2Pack 3, Pack 4
 Miguel is current on the DL with a strained back.  Been there --bad back--not the DL.
 We saw mini-Mark earlier.  Now we have big Mark as well.
 A Joe Mauer relic.  Well played Hackenbush!
 My second Ryno in two packs.  Nice!
Mini Morneau
 Nice of Morneau to join his teammate and with a black bordered mini.

This was a good pack.  Certainly a plain white swatch is not as exciting as it used to be.  Is a relic card from a current player really anything more than a short print variation?  Still...  The Sandberg is nice.  Throw in a black bordered mini of a popular player.  OK.
