A Wing and a Prayer
A Wing and a Prayer
The one toy I’ve still wanted since 1977.
Of the many items that I picked up on Force Friday 2015, the Millennium Falcon bluetooth speaker may be the only one that’s being used or out on display. Jedi Holocron, die cast vehicles, most figures are all in storage tubs.
That said, I’m probably going to get porgs this time around.
The only Black Series figures that I may get are Hera Syndulla and Grand Admiral Thrawn.
And $800 for a LEGO Millennium Falcon? Ouch.
According to tracking, this should arrive tomorrow.
I’ve decided to go back to using my backpack instead of the smaller bag that I got last week.
There were still times when my lower back was sore, probably from the bag.
I also find that I sometimes need to carry more stuff that I can in the smaller bag.
This was quite possibly my all time favorite from Game of Thrones, all 7 seasons.
I’m replaying Dwight Gooden’s rookie season in 1984, and I’m up to game #24 of his career: a road game vs. the San Francisco Giants, at Candlestick Park.
The opposing pitcher: Mike Krukow.
On this day, August 17, 1984, both pitchers went 9 innings, with no scoring.
In the top of the 10th, Krukow gave up a 2-run homer to Wally Backman, giving the Mets the lead. Jesse Orosco pitched the bottom of the 10th for the save (his 26th), with Gooden winning his 11th game of the season.
Starting pitching lines:
Gooden: 9 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 12 K
Krukow: 9.1 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 10 K
I doubt my replay will turn out the same. We’ll see.

I was under the impression that this was going to be a 10 episode series, so when I saw that 6 episodes were available on Thursday night, I decided to watch them all. I figured that the remaining episodes would be added on Friday.
So imagine my surprise when I found out that it was only a 6-episode series.
Anyways, I thought it was great. Very true to the animated series and the live action series. I was laughing a lot, from the dialogue. Pitch perfect from the earlier material.
And I’m still kicking myself for not recognizing the actor who played Denarian Saal in Guardians of the Galaxy, Peter Serafinowicz, as the Tick himself.
Recommended! Two thumbs up! Go watch it now!
So very tired.
