Birth of the Achiever Card Blog

Hello and welcome to my blog. I am Motherscratcher and I apparently have way too much time on my hands. For those who are wondering my name and blog title are taken directly from Coen Brother's movies. Not that anyone was wondering. Someone would have to read it first to wonder.

OK, lets get to it

1. Why did I make a card blog?

About a week ago I discovered my old baseball cards and fell into a sort of hallucinatory mania trying to get them organized. Basically I fell back in love. For how long I do not know.
I was on the interwebs looking for answers to my many questions and stumbled across some blogs. Most notably Sports Cards Uncensored. I thought it was fantastic. I figured that considering my abundance of intelligence and wit, not to mention my dashing good looks, hoards of people would flock to read all of the interesting things I have to say. This may be a good way to get some of my questions answered.
I also thought that it may be interesting to document my observations as I attempt to navigate the ridiculous scorched earth, nonsensical landscape that sports cards have apparently become. At least it would be something for people to read while they are taking a break from searching for porn.

2. What do I plan to contribute?

Not a whole hell of a lot.

3. Will I ever do something to improve this blog's settings and layout?

I sure hope so.

4. What will I promise faithful readers of my blog?

I personally promise to send, with free shipping, a custom tee shirt with a picture of a bowling pin to anywhere inside the continental United States to the person who post the 5,000th comment on one of my posts. This is assuming that it is possible to track these things.

Things not to expect from my blog:
Any type of worthwhile information
A reasonable return on your valuable time

I will be back soon with another post as I attempt to scan a card and present it on the interweb for all to see and enjoy. I will also attempt to clarify the types of things that you can expect to find on this ridiculous blog. Thank you for your kind attention.

Why do I get the feeling that I'm talking to myself?

Forget it Donny, you're out of your element!

Keep it up though, we need more nonsensical Coen Bros/Card blogs in the world. I'd look pretty sweet in a t-shirt with a bowling pin too...

Welcome to the blogosphere. I am a huge fan of Albert Belle and former fan of Manny so I am expecting some good blogs on the two.
