Back in October, I took over our school's Leadership class because the administrator who runs the class went out on maternity leave. Over the course of these three months, I have discovered a newfound respect for her and her job.
Between managing the Leadership kids, my own classes, and trying my damnedest to stay mentally sane... my life right now is straight up "ridiculous". With that being said...
Last night's CFP National Championship was ridiculously long. I love watching football and last night's game ended up being one for the ages, but four plus hours is way too long for this fan. I passed out early in the third quarter and missed all of the excitement, but I'm grateful to be watching the replay right now as I pound out this post.
While we're focusing on the ridiculous, I figured I'd show off the latest addition to my Rickey Henderson collection:
The card itself is ridiculously awesome. However you'd have to be ridiculously rich or brave to bust Topps Dynasty. One card boxes sell for around $300 to $350. Talk about a high risk/high reward product. You can hit the jackpot and pull a Babe Ruth or Roberto Clemente cut signature. However there are plenty of guys like Freddie Freeman and Sonny Gray too, which sell in the $50 range. I can't imagine dropping three bills on a box and pulling a $50 card out of it. I'd be ridiculously disappointed in myself for taking such a ridiculous risk.
Wanna hear another ridiculous thing about this Rickey? I picked up this card for $120 (+ $5 shipping), which is a ridiculous amount of money for me to spend on a single card. But what's even more ridiculous is the fact that I'm too scared to crack the seal and free Rickey from his plastic cell. Yeah. I admit that I'm ridiculous.
Need some more ridiculousness in your life? Check out this lot of 2016 Topps Archives 65th Anniversary autographs I recently purchased off of eBay:
The day after I bought this lot of autographs, another collector won this auction:
A complete set of this product with 16 autographs for just over the cost of two unopened boxes. That's flippin' ridiculous.
Okay... I'm starting to get a little ridiculous myself with the amount of times I'm using the word "ridiculous", so I'll wrap up this ridiculous post with this card...
1997 Genuine Article #19
At first glance, there isn't anything too ridiculous about this card. However... what if I told you that the guy pictured on this card is Roy Rogers, not Roy Rodgers?
Is it possible that Mr. Rogers purposely added a "D" to his signature to be ridiculous? Of course. Or maybe Andrew Havens, the president of The Genuine Article was ridiculously stupid and didn't catch the spelling error before he forged all 7,500 signatures.
Whatever the case is... I'm getting ridiculously tired. So do me a favor and leave a ridiculous comment down below. Today's topic...
What's something you find ridiculous?
Happy Tuesday and sayonara!
