Well, I've decided to change the name of my blog yet again. I started out with My Cardboard Obsession, but it sounded too much like a Calvin Klein cologne ad. Then I went with "Who Own Da Chiefs" in reference to my favorite sports movie, Slap Shot, but someone had already registered the web address, so I had to add my name to it, which got to be too wordy. I had considered going with "Hey Hanrahan!" but it would require an awkward explanation which would offend most people I told it to, and great lines like "The ******* machine took my quarter" and "That **** is no good," were just flat out profane.
I think I'm going to stick with this one, though. For one, I think it's at least catchy and memorable, plus it (kind of) rhymes. And although I may be thinking WAY too ambitiously, the web domain itself is available and would make a great name for a podcast. Although I have just gotten my feet wet in the internet card trading community, I would definitely like to do something more with this than just posting random Wal-Mart blaster box breaks.
I did, however, pick up a pretty cool card for my Kerry Wood personal collection this week. It is a Gallery Originals jersey card from the 2005 Topps Gallery set. The condition isn't quite mint, as a little bit of the blue has rubbed off on the bottom and there appears to be a little bit of a crease where the hole was cut, but the card is fantastic looking.
