Chris Tierney collection 1.0

So........Why is a die hard NY Rangers fan (and a silent San Jose Sharks fan too) collecting sharks player Chris Tierney? I have no frickin clue in the world as to why but I like the guy and how he plays........that and the fact that he's playing better than most of the players on the NY Rangers team who are sitting in the basement at this moment (sad face). But let us not dwell on the sorrows of seeing the Rangers in the basement and instead celebrate a new PC adventure (PC-Personal Collection. Not Personal Computer or Poppy Cock or politically correct (god knows there's too much of that) or Personal Coach). What I will share with you is what I have obtained so far in my quest to collecting what I like to call..................... THE ALMIGHTY Chris Tierney Collection 1.0.


2014-15 Upper Deck SP Game Used Chris Tierney Inked Rookie Sweaters patch piece #21/49. This is a simple patch piece and I'm glad that Upper Deck didn't just use a plain swatch piece in the same way that Topps does for their limited numbers sometimes.


2014-15 UD The Cup Rookie Masterpiece rookie auto printing plate #1/1. My first ever THE CUP 1/1.


2014-15 UD Exquisite Collection Rookie auto patch #12/50. This has a very solid patch piece with 3 good colors and a little thread fraying. The patch piece itself looks like it may be from the armband on the sleeve. This is also my first Exquisite hockey rookie auto.


2014-15 UD SP Authentic Future Watch rookie auto patch #6/100. Again, UD used a nice 4 color patch piece for this limited series run.

more to come.................

Great SCOTT...........yes he's alive and now collecting Chris Tierney and Kevin Fiala.

Yes............I'm still alive. The Big Kahuna is still functioning. Sacrificing virgins is a lot of hard work and does get tiring. But yeah.......I just have not been able to devote as much time to here as I had hoped to do because I have 2 teenagers that keep me pretty busy along with working second shift that like you know totally kills my social life and much of any dreams of world dominance.

Thursday, October 12, 2017!

Oh sweet lord..............I'm still alive and kicking. I have gone through so many life changes in the last year that it might make some people's head spin. I had to change careers and then I had to change homes and say goodbye to the wildness and say hello to having neighbors and being part of a community again. I guess no more peeing out in the yard with the dog anymore as the neighbors and their kids might find it offensive (maybe that's why they were looking at me in a funny manner the first few days). Oh yeah.......neighbors......UGHHHH! For 11 years I enjoyed peace and quiet with the bears and the snakes and the sounds of mother nature's finest eating other animals. Instead of hearing the coyotes running around in the woods chasing after their dinner, now all I hear is kids screaming across the road from me in this lovely small community. Oh and let us not forget the lovely sounds of the thumping bass emanating from some guy's chevy celebrity every time he pulls into the community. I swear he's got a $1,000 system in a $425 vehicle. You can hear that car a mile down the road and you can hear the trunk rattling. I just might have to set off an EMP grenade one of these days. So for therapy purposes and so that I do not pee in the yard outback, I have returned to writing on here again. Let's take a brief look at the NY GIANTS:

0-5 for the season so far.
lost 4 wide receivers in one game all to ankle injuries.
Lost O'dell Beckham, Brandon Marshall, and Dwayne Harris for the season. Sterling Shepard is a question mark.
Ereck Flowers still sucks as lineman.
Coach McAdoo Wackadoo enjoys throwing Manning under the bus.
Coach McAdoo cannot make the right calls at the right time.
Coach Wackadoo needs to be released along with Reese and Flowers

God I hope this NFL season is over very very very soon.

Ok.....rant over.

Well.......more to come now that I have time for this again.

Blake Ashton Snell is a MLB pitcher for the Tampa Bay Rays who made his MLB debut on April 23, 2016 and managed to compile a 6-8 record in his first year with an ERA of 3.54 and amassed 98 strikeouts. Blake was drafted by Tampa Bay in the first round of the 2011 MLB draft.

This is Blake's 2011 Bowman Chrome prospect rookie auto which I obtained opening one box after another during the "great hunt" for Bryce Harper rookie autograph cards. Blake's signature is very legible and you can make out all of the letters in his first name and his last name without any eye strain effort. I like how he makes both of the L's in his last name the same size as the "S". It's a very clean autograph and it's very well balanced and the signature does not dance all over the place.

For his efforts Blake receives 5/5 sharpies!!!!!


 Big Kahuna approved

The Big Kahuna gets honest

Ok......I was wrong. I admit it. Cleveland looked like it was locked in to win it all when they had the series lead at 3-1 and I thought, "Holy Moses my prediction is about to become true." But then Cleveland choked up and Chicago got hot and Eddie Vedder sang songs to the children and then Kris Bryant ate a Gyro and then Bill Murray showed up and loved everyone and then Steve Bartman prayed for a redeeming miracle.

Despite all of that happening supposedly, the Chicago Cubs have finally won the World Series which this series itself is going to go in the record books as one of the best MLB World Series ever and while Cleveland unfortunately lost, they still need to hold their heads up high. Besides we can blame the NFL! The last time the NFL had two teams with ties in their win/loss records, the Cleveland Indians were in the world series and lost the world series. What happened this year...........2 teams in the NFL had ties in their records and Cleveland was in the world series......go figure........the goat perhaps has now become a Cleveland fan.

Congrats Chicago Cubs! Enjoy your spoils and victories! At least you didn't buy your world series like the NY Yankees have done.........................................................or did you?

The Big Kahuna has come down from the mountain to spread the word across the land and to share thoughts on the upcoming 2016 MLB World Series and will now finish up sacrificing virgins to address the masses:

 The Big Kahuna Speaks now.......(silence you fools):

"For I have had a dream....and in this dream there was a vision.....a vision of Babe Ruth. He stood there (while eating a hot dog with one hand and holding a 40oz in the other) and spoke so firmly at me these following words (while chunks of hot dog buns were being spewed upon me from him speaking)":

"Here in the afterlife Big Kahuna we know how things will turn out. Ty Cobb was going to tell you these words but unfortunately he's still stuck in hell reliving every day that he beat up the one arm fan in the bleachers by being beaten up by a pack of one arm horned demons with barb-wired baseball bats so they sent me instead to share these words of wisdom with you.":

Babe pulls a paper out of his pants pocket and the paper has scribble on it. Babe puts his hand into his other pocket and pulls out 2 hot dogs and begins to chow down.

"Sorry but these hot dogs are so good and I was hungry."

"Wait a minute Big Kahuna. Before I share these words with you I need another hot dog and a rub down."

(Big Kahuna waiting patiently)


 "Just a minute Big Kahuna.....Oh this is soooooooogood. I gotta have dessert too you know."

TMZ BREAKING NEWS STORY: The Big Kahuna grows impatient and decides to shave the top portion of his head while he's waiting on Babe Ruth's spirit to finish eating!

"For crying out loud RUTH....your balls are foul so get on with it!"

"Ok Big Kahuna. I've got my milk and a "cookie" for later (gotta feed the crabs too you know). Ok where was I....oh yeah....the message. This is what I am to share with you:

Babe shows me a picture that is on the paper:

"The great and powerful Chicago Cubs goat will sit back in silence and watch as the world series unfolds. He had been tasked with the job of keeping the Chicago Cubs baseball team unbalanced and sad for many years and was ultimately created to deprive the Cubs of ever winning another World Series championship. But the goat is puzzled. He is bothered by how well the team is playing this year. He wonders if he should let them get so far and then pop up like a big surprise in one of the many forms he likes to present himself a form of a...... say oh I dunno..... like when he popped up in the form of Steve Bartman perhaps. The goat was pondering and pondering and thinking and the goat thought perhaps this year he will take a vacation instead and allow the team to share in the joy of winning a championship because he knows that the people of Chicago deserve a champion team. But then the goat looks at how Cleveland is playing this year and is impressed with how they are on fire right now and knows that they are worthy of a World Championship as well. The goat takes a deeper look into his feelings and has sympathy for the people of Cleveland because he knows that the Cleveland Browns will NEVER EVER win a championship and bring glory to the masses. The goat then realizes that the Cleveland Cavaliers won a championship this year and it has already brought some happiness to the people of Cleveland. Then the goat realizes that the people of Chicago are still suffering from the White Sox failing to bring a championship to the windy city and the Blackhawks failing to win the Stanley Cup and this makes the goat think, "perhaps this year will finally be the year that the Chicago Cubs shall be allowed to win a world series."

The question at hand Big Kahuna is will the goat be turned into a sandwich specialty at Slyman's restuarant by the Indians so that they can end their amazing season on a feast of World Championship champagne and BBQ goat or will the Cubs finally be freed from this everlasting curse of World Series Championship denial and proudly drink from their highly hoisted bottles of championship champagne and serve the Indians up like a specialty sandwich from Au Cheval and end the years of misery and finally put the "goat" in the pasture for good."

The Babe folds up his piece of paper and puts it back into his pocket and then snaps his fingers and in the blink of an eye, the Babe and myself are staring at a kitchen table with cereal on it. The Babe sits down and begins........AGAIN..........EATING!

It is at this moment I awaken from my dream and I come to realize that in my hand was a spoon and the paper from which the Babe had spoken from.

SO, it is now on this very day in the year of YOUR LORD (that's me), I will decree to you......the people (my peeps), the followers of mine (my worshipers), to the masses among us..............IT IS ON THIS VERY DAY THAT I WILL DECLARE the winner of the 2016 MLB World Championship series (In 5 games) is going to be ............................................................................................................................................................

 "OH MY GOD......he did not say that"

"Yep.....the Chicago Cubs hope and dreams of a world series title for this year .............. and it's gone"

Because here's your winner folks

RICKY "Wild Thing" Vaughn and the Tribe will be the winners.

The "TRIBE" has spoken and the word is decreed (funny we just noticed that we're the tribe too-see it's predestined to happen!).
