  1. The LA Galaxy won the MLS Cup a couple weeks back but I was waiting for something before sharing some stories (that, and my work blocked LCVG so I don't get on nearly as much as I used to). I took my girls and a friend to practice the Saturday before our home game in the Western Conference final against Seattle. The team moved their practice from the usual field to inside the stadium so we didn't get to catch them going to practice. We did hang around though and caught pretty much everyone (except Landon Donovan) as they were going home. My daughter got a pair of cleats signed and we got pictures with most of the players. My oldest daughter and I went back the day before the MLS Cup. They again moved the practice inside the stadium but we got there early enough to catch most of the players as they arrived. It seemed like a lot of them were still waking up so we didn't push too much but I did get Gyasi Zardes to record a greeting for my youngest daughter Emma; he gave her his jersey earlier in the season. Trinity (the daughter with me) got Todd Dunivant to record a greeting for her friend (and his biggest fan) who was out of state at a speech tournament. It was quite cool. So earlier in the season I tweeted Dan Gargan (one of our defenders) and said we should get lunch. I went to a practice on the day they were leaving for Salt Lake and mentioned it to him when I saw him. He said they were getting ready to travel so a mid-week date would be better. I mentioned it again to him over Twitter but didn't hear anything. The night after the Galaxy won the championship the team had a rally in Hermosa Beach. I couldn't make it up but lo and behold, I get a message from Dan saying we should do lunch before the holidays. Fast forward to today and it happened! I got to spend an hour having lunch and talking about all sorts of things (mostly family and soccer) with an integral piece of our championship team! He even paid even though I had mentioned from the get go that I wanted to pick it up. There's even a possibility that we'll do it again with the rest of my family. Way cool!

    Passed on Forza (either one) for now. I was able to get Mordor and my dad ordered me Diablo and FIFA. My sister has something coming to me as well, probably Rocksmith. On top of the AC games that come with it, I think I am set for now. Now, I know 360 games are not compatible. Did that hold true for Arcade games as well?

    After a couple of false starts i did finally get an Xbox one, the assassin's creed bundle. Hoping my family gets me fifa and Diablo, maybe shadow of mordor. If i was to go after a racing game, is forza horizon the better choice or is forza 5 on sale worth it?

  6. Xbox One X - Available November 7th 2017 - $499.99

    $349 puts me $50 closer to getting one. I have $30 in Best Buy credit saved up and should be able to get about $100 on my PS3 (hmm, I think I swapped the hard drive so BB might not take it from me actually...). It's possible...
  7. Walking Dead Season 5 Discussion

    Dean may have been referring to the guy who had the Terminus people in the box car. I have read that someone from the show (maybe on Talking Dead?) has said that was not Negan.
  8. Walking Dead Season 5 Discussion

    Anyone else pick up that Bob may have been bitten when he went under water? When he left the church to go cry it may have been because he knew his time was limited and he just seemed to find love/happiness/acceptance. I won't be surprised if he gets to tell the hunters a little surprise next week...
  9. But then backed off that statement. So, at this point, it is still up in the air. I won't be surprised if it happens (though I am less certain Mel will direct) but it is basically 50-50 for me.
  10. I haven't yet but positive reviews and the bit I have seen are tempting me. $20 on Steam. I have heard it is a bit short (3 hours?) but I'm not sure if that is an accurate description of the length.

    It did not happen. Still, I wonder if I should go ahead and trade in my PS3 before it goes down more in value. I could move the blu-ray player from the back tv to the main one so we could still watch movies. With Christmas and my birthday in February, I bet I could get it around then. As much as Destiny intrigues me, I think if I was to go with a game that is out now it would be Diablo 3. I'd also have to consider getting FIFA 15. I would not be able to trade in Madden if I got a bundle, right? I believe that is a download version, not a disc version.
  12. Aston Villa for the win!!! I even picked them in the predictor league, though I got the final score wrong. I did get the Arsenal vs Man City score exactly right.
  13. Xbox One X - Available November 7th 2017 - $499.99

    I highly doubt my wife will let me do this, but if there was ever a time to get an Xbox One now would seem to be the time. The Best Buy near me appears to have the Madden bundle in stock and then I could get a free game (Destiny or Diablo???). I would be willing to trade in my PS3 for $120 as it is solely used for blu-ray viewing which the Bone would take over. A new console and two games for $280, and I could even try trading in some 360 games to knock that down even more... Argh, even bringing it up could get me in trouble (we're spending over $300 on a brake job, though at one point we thought that was going to be over $800).
  14. Hope you don't mind, but I have another LA Galaxy story to share with you. The team played on Friday. The atmosphere was...odd, but ultimately great. One of their stars, Gyasi Zardes, had a birthday so I made a birthday poster for him earlier in the week. Then the tragedy happened. Luca de la Garza, the 1 week old son of our defender AJ de la Garza, passed away due to complications after a surgery for a heart condition he was born with. At the game you could just feel something was different. Before the start of the match, the stadium observed a moment of silence and during the match we had a celebration/show of support for the family. It was pretty cool and even some of the players said afterward that they got emotional during it. The Galaxy won 6-0, helped by the other team's keeper getting a red card after 34 seconds. While the game was full of memorable moments, it was also a great day for my daughter Emma: - One of the teachers at her summer school was the wife of the team doctor. She saw us in our Galaxy gear and came over to talk to us. She enjoyed Emma so much (who wasn't even her student) that she said she would try to get a jersey from one of her favorite players, Marcelo Sarvas. It didn't happen during summer school and we just kind of forgot about it. When I got home on Friday to get ready for the game, my other daughter asked when I had gotten the new jersey. I didn't know what she was talking about. Sure enough, the lady came through. She got Emma a Marcelo jersey and he even wrote a little message to her on it. He's been a favorite for a while and this just cemented that. - At the game, I was walking Emma around the stadium to get her out of the sun. We ran into the tv announcer, Joe Tutino. He talked with me for a few minutes and took a picture with Emma. - Emma has been to a number of games now and the team mascot, Cozmo, knows her on site. He came over before the start of the game and gave her the scarf he was wearing. I've raised the possibility of him making it to her birthday party in October. We'll see if it happens. - I mentioned it was Gyasi Zardes' birthday and the card and all. Since we won the game, the team came over to our area to salute the fans. Gyasi doesn't normally do this but he was there this time. Sure enough, after they finished the salute, Gyasi came right over to us and traded his jersey for the birthday card. Emma made the exchange. It even got on the post-game show.
  15. 2013 Summer Movie Draft

    Did I miss this for this year? I don't think there was a last minute movie moved from summer to next year so I could actually have had all of my movies count for once!
