Sorry for the late news this morning, I got up and headed out to Best Buy to see if I could snatch up a 360. Well, after feeling good about the situation when I got there (only about 20 people in line), I found that Best Buy had already given out numbers to everyone that was in line from earlier in the morning. So that feeling of excitement, quickly died down. I'm just looking for 360's to help some people out, nothing more, nothing less. As you know, I already have one. I also went to Target and Walmart and had the same rotten luck. Oh well, at least I tried.

Man, the Giants beat the Chiefs last night, what a bummer. Tiki Barber is so underrated, he was an absolute beast last night. Now the Boys are put into a "Must Win" mode, more than ever. This game is HUGE, plain and simple. I just wish it was a 1:00 game, now I have to sit and cringe waiting for 4:00. I have all the confidense in the world that the Boys come out on top today, but I'm sure it will be a close game.

The Pistons crushed the lowly Bobcats last night to move their record to 18-3. I was also happy to see Riles lose his first game while coaching the Heat this year. Even if the Cavs are in our division, heh.

In other news...
Happy Birthday to the following OS'ers!

Enough about me, what's up with you? Enjoying the weekend so far, did you get yourself a 360?

i had similar luck... got to Best Buy at around 6:00, but there was a good 35 or so people in front of me

they ended up having 26 premiums, 2 cores, so no 360 for me

some people were really desperate... people that were behind me in line ended paying $250-400 to those in the front of the line for their vouchers

i can't really see myself paying $650-800 for an xbox though

eBay is looking good for me right now. I've got little time remaining on the auction I'm bidding on and I'm still winning. Just a few more hours.

I gave my gift for my best friend, and she liked it.

Uh... nothing else really. I did perform and that was an experience. I'll explain later.

Yes, KC disappointment. Their tackling is horrible. I still am not sold on the G-Men. They have been lucky as hell. That extra home game was huge. Oh well, all the Boys can do is take care of their business and win out.

:-\ I got outbid, and for more than I was willing to pay. I'll speak with my mom to see if she'll loan me any money to try to pull this one down.

Would the Saints really have beaten us at their place?

Anyways, todays gonna be a busy day with a lot of work to do. Plus I gotta catch the Skins and Cowboys and pray for a tie.

Was my daughters birthday yesterday, but we had a family wedding so we delayed her party until today. Went to the wedding yesterday, came home and I let her open some presents . She is real excited about today though...probably wont catch to much football..busy day.

it certainly was possible. The Saints weren't nearly as bad at the beginning of the season as they are now. Yes, I certainly would've liked to see that game anywhere other than NY.

Weekend is pretty quiet... I've resigned myself to the fact that I probably won't get a 360 anytime soon... I might wait and see what's up with the PS3, and if they're launching in the spring, I'll preorder towards that... And if the reports about the launch list doesn't sway me, I can always get the 360... I think they'll be easier to find around that time....

Panthers need to win at Baton Rouge today, man... That game last week was sickening... We're a little to schizo for my tastes...

I'm working on getting that damn 360! I'll talk to anyone I can if it gets me closer!

ARGH!

I can't really think of anything else!

WOW Total domination steve!!
My Skins had Sweet pay back for years of frustration at the hands of the Boys. I will enjoy this victory for a long long time.

Interesting day. No 360's in sight, but the Jags won. Pres. Bush is taking FG off the air by talking about Iraq, which I know I couldn't care less about... Seriously, I don't see how this is important to Americans, but I digress (I know we can't talk about politics on the board).

So it's been bad, decent, bad.

I am B O R E D. I dont know what I'm gonna do this week. All of my friends are back home for the holidays and here I am without an XBox(I sold the system and Halo 2...kept NCAA 06 though).
 
# 16 TarHeelMan @ 12/18/05 11:29 PM
Being without a system sucks... I didn't realize how much I would miss my PS2 until I sold it towards my 360 preorder.... Now I've got neither.

Yup, complete domination. No question about it, I have no excuses. The Skins were the better team, by far. Congrats.
