2008 Upper Deck Heroes Football

I bought a blaster of the Baseball version of this product and succumbed to temptation and got a pack of the football. I guess it's worth opening a pack of football cards today.

258 Rulon Gardner
The first card in a pack of football cards... one of the very few packs I've bought all year... is a wrestler. A very good wrestler, but a wrestler. Put a Giants helmet on him and he sort of looks like a white Michael Strahan I suppose.

253 Tom Morello
One of the very few football packs I've bought all year and I get a wrestler and a communist. I always feel a little strange about outright cussing on this blog so I'll say it in pig latin.


Are there any football cards in this football pack? That's one way of not collecting football cards...

157 Joe Flacco
Ah, a real football player. From Delaware. Joe Flacco would have looked great in a Falcons uniform while Glenn Dorsey busted some heads on the defensive line. Arthur Blank chose to sell t-shirts instead, which is why I've mostly abandoned the NFL for college football. The Dawgs kicked Central Michigan's ass yesterday!

190 Sam Baker
68 Marshawn Lynch
23 Chad Johnson
$1.49 off a blaster box at Target

The rest of the cards look pretty much the same as the Flacco. So you think I should buy a blaster? The coupon expires at the end of the month so I have to hurry. While you're thinking about it, here's some communist music for ya to enjoy.

Freakin' commies. Nothing changes.

Say what you like about the tenets of national socialism, Dayf, at least it's an ethos.

I opened one of those packs and got a "guitar hero"

I would like that Tom Morello. The reason: He's in Guitar Hero 3 and I play Guitar Hero(along with Rock Band) WAY too much.
