I eased off WoW with Skyrim. All the exploring I loved about WoW, with nobody else to bother me in the middle of it.

I recently kind of did as well. The channel that was airing them stopped airing episodes past season 5 though.

Planet earth. Joe Sakic is my favorite athlete of all time, but Crosby is better by quite a chunk.

The Series Finale of Parks & Rec should be taught in film school as one of the best ways to wrap up a series. We've all seen some ****-poor series finales over the years, but that's one that definitely nailed it (and it was a shrewd choice from Mike Schur to use the Travelling Wilbury's song "End of the Line" as the closing credits song).

I thought the same thing Bonzai. I get the appeal of colorado gear but know that it is a sign of being a transplant. I mean I've got a couple colorado shirts myself but I know that it screams, "I'm not from here." Brewery shirts are a really good start. I'm currently wearing this . Great Divide Yeti one. Also old Colorado Rockies gear is great too. Something from here maybe. No one outside of old school hockey fans know that the team ended up moving to New Jersey anyways and they just think it's a cool take on the Colorado flag.

In ESO one of the things you had to do in order to unlock one of the abilities was find like 200 of these books that were hidden in random spots, with some being really remote. It was forced exploration, but the ability was a monster in PVP so it was worth it.

I loved my time in Colorado, but looking back I wish I would of chose an overseas option. I didn't have a strong drive for it though because I deployed three times, and did another extended training tour in England (Dover) that took me to France, Germany, and Ireland for a couple of weeks at a time. I had enough time away at the end of it all. Plus I got to be there the night Sakic retired, and discover Buffalo burgers lol.
Ha, I was there that night as well. Even made it on TV during one of the ovations. Wife and I, and a good buddy. Wife was streaming tears, which is what got us on camera I am sure.

It was a blast, and we made sure to get club level seats so that there was some chance of getting his autograph being on that level. Just missed him, though my buddy got one from Forsberg because he went to the bathroom and happen to catch Forsberg leaving a bit early. I was sooo jealous lol.

Glad to hear that. Pretty well all my t-shirts are those soft, vintage tri-blend material shirts. Can you comment whether or not it's long? I'm 6'4 and sometimes have issues with shirts struggling to reach my waist. It's a Nike which are generally pretty good but since you own it I'd like to be prepared lol.

its been my experience that those materials tend to shrink very easily as opposed to an athletic synthetic material. If you got an xl it would probably be long enough, however I'm only 6'1" so dont really have that issue

Ah, that old Broncos logo. Wish the team would go back to those. The current look still looks awful and has aged even worse. But I guess they won three super bowls in the Swoosh-Horse unis so...

That old Broncos logo is nice. I remember my dad being so stoked when they changed it, but I think that had more to do with watching them blow it over and over in the super bowl wearing the orange.

Gah, between the new Doctor announcement and the whiny nitpickers disavowing the new Star Trek I can't imagine fandom culture getting much worse.

Ahhh. Gotcha. I think I own a few 100% cotton but I don't usually check the percentages of the fabric.
