It has been a while, so I thought I would provide a little State of the Blog address:

Pitchers and Catchers have reported to Spring Training, so all is right with the world.

I am still out of work, but hopefully I might have an opportunity with the greatest team in the world. If the fifth starter position isn't available, maybe the Padres will consider my application for Ballpark Navigator. I've always liked the idea of being a tour guide, and I love the Padres, so it sounds perfect.

My little shelf at the LCS has netted me a few hundred bucks. WAY more than I anticipated! If I can keep from spending the proceeds on baseball cards, I should be able to live the comfortable life I have become accustomed to for at least another month or so.

Trade and prize update: I STILL owe prizes to a few folks. I really will get those out this week. Jimmy, your special, first-place prize is still in the works.

I just had 61 cards shipped via UPS from the Million Card Giveaway. It cost me a little over $20. Sixteen dollars less than the USPS option. Quite a few trades/giveaways coming with that shipment.

I haven't been wallowing in my unemployment too much. I recently finished a couple of projects for some local bands.

Promo Materials for Okay at Best

If you haven't listened to either of these bands, you should give them a listen.

That's all I can think of for now.

Oh, yeah. I never have to buy another 2011 Topps blaster. I got the coolest Manu-Patch card:

Damn it. I really didn't need to know that the Pilots manu-patch existed.

Wow, sweet! That's a card I wouldn't part with easily...

Are you renewing the same Fantasy League for 2011?

Why wouldn't they use Prince Fielder for the Pilots? It is the Brewers franchise after all.

Plus there is like 40 different Mariners logos to use for Ichiro.
