Out of the Blue

Happy summer to all of us in the Northern hemisphere, as the solstice passed at around 1:00 am today, and the weather now has an excuse for being so hot. And to those below the equator, happy winter!

Also, congrats to Miami on their back-to-back NBA titles. Personally, I was rooting for the Spurs, being one of those who was turned off by the circus surrounding Le LeBron taking his talents to South Beach. Pulling for Tim Duncan did strike me as a little odd in light of that, since the Spurs drafted him by compiling the third-worst record in the league during the lone season in the last 24 years that they missed the playoffs. I am not alone in thinking they dumped games along the way to hurt their record that year and help their draft chances, and if that's true, it's a lot sketchier than a simple free-agent signing.

As for the Cap'n, I suppose that by the time someone knew enough to notice the snafu, they'd left kid's cereals behind.

It was probably some disgruntled Commander in the Navy who continually got passed over for promotion, 'He's not a captain dammit! He's a commander like me!'

Looks like today's the day if you wan't to load up @GOG.

what deals stand out to you? i've been poking around but nothing really grabs me. i was hoping they'd cut a deal on NWN2 but no dice - still $10.

I've been waiting for FTL @ 75% off so I'm getting that one. Probably pick up the ARMA pack @ $14. Considering The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition @ $6.

Okay, that was pretty funny. Especially the part about the kinect.

When I was there on the first day of the summer sale, there were six things on the homepage, now there are 60. Also, there are a ton of bundles, so loading up is pretty easy. Don't see NWN2, but this bundle has pretty much everything else.

Yeah, that Sid Vicious pencil set is pretty sweet. But a replica of CBGBs bathroom? Cereal?

Man, the bathroom there was a rite of passage. But that doesn't look right to me. This is what the CBGBs bathroom looked like by the time I was going there. The one in that picture of the museum is way too... clean.

I was rooting for the Spurs also, but when they didn't win game 6, I figured they'd lose game 7. They did better in game 7 than I thought they would, they had their chances to win the game, just couldn't quite get there...  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

The Duncan draft was the main catalyst in the NBA changing the way the draft works, because it was so blatantly obvious they were tanking so they could draft Duncan. I believe they went something like 4-46 over their last 50 games of that season.

Then again, doing so has won them four titles and they came within 2 baskets of winning a fifth, so it's hard to argue it wasn't a smart decision.

It was a great series, especially these last two games. Kinda sad to think that this will maybe be the last run the Big Three in SA make.
