I was a bad fan today. About 2:30, it hit me that I’d intended to go to the card show that is about five miles from the house. At 2:30, both the WVU game and Iron Bowl were starting. Oops.

A little over a week ago I was on the other side of Fort Worth and stopped in a Target. I was thrilled to find a 2015-16 Upper Deck Hockey Series 2 blaster. I wasn’t passing it up at $12.99.
