One more thing that needs to be brought back from my childhood.

August 29, 2011

About a month ago on WWE Monday Night Raw, CM Punk asked Vince McMahon to bring back the WWF Ice Cream Bars that were popular in the late 80’s and early 90’s.

While watching that classic promo from Punk about trying to bring that product back, I thought of something else that should also be brought back. I am talking about this:

That’s right folks. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pies! I was probably 5 or 6 when these babies arrived. I can remember eating at least one of these almost every day because my parents at the time owned a small grocery store and I was able to to snag them off the shelves whenever I pleased. I am sure Hostess would cash in pretty nicely if these pies returned. Man, I miss the old days.

I’m here folks.

I apologize for not getting up a thread earlier this week. I have been pretty busy at work and didn’t get much of a chance to go near a computer.

I missed most of the Bears game Monday night and when I finally had a chance to tune in, the game was well out of reach. I did see the highlights and I will say that was awful to say the least. Then again, this is what we should expect from the Bears: Shitty defense in terms of the secondary and a horrendous offense led by the genius Mike Martz. I saw this shit last presason so it isn’t anything new. When they play the Titans on Saturday, I think it’s going to be just as ugly. Just imagine how bad it’s going to be when the regular season starts. For the stat idiots out there, don’t waste your time here about how the Bears almost went to the Super Bowl last year. They go 11-5 yet played like a an 8-8 team. I’d rather have a team go 8-8, barely get into the playoffs and eventually win the Super Bowl than the same team going 11-5 and showing how shitty they really are when it matters the most. Enough of that though.

Madden ’12 comes out at midnight Tuesday. I have the demo for the PS3 and it’s much better than last year’s game. The game play is much more smooth without a delay in calling plays and they have actual player celebrations. In addition, they finally have Soldier Field in the game. The demo doesn’t have any commentary but I think Gus Johnson is still doing play-by-play for the full game. That would be awesome.

That’s it for me. I may have thoughts on the Bears/Titans game in a few days. Have a good weekend everybody.

Open thread.

Your thoughts on the Bears’ first preseason game and anything else that’s on your mind.

How could I forget?

I can’t believe I didn’t remember this but last week marked the third year of this website (six overall if you include the old one). Time certainly flies. In the three years here, there have been over 300 posts, nearly 7,000 comments and as many as 1,000 hits per day in a few of those days.

I say this quite a bit but it’s worth repeating: Thank you everybody for visiting this site on an almost everyday basis. If it isn’t for each of you guys, this website doesn’t exist. We all love Chucky’s rants, Genrebuster’s funny quotes and his “Ha Ha Ha’s” and MadCityMac’s love for beer. You guys are awesome. I appreciate the support very much.
