Here it is. It all comes down to this. I've had a lot of fun. It has been a lot more work than I imagined. I'm piggybacking right on the back of my last post so I don't even know who's winning as of this writing.
It's right in the middle of the Cavs game so I probably will be in no position to do anything Turk Off related for a while yet.
Win or lose, I've had a blast.
#162 Troy Glaus 0pts #87 David Eckstein 0pts #20 Alex Rodriguez 1pts (I don't feel right about getting a point for this douche)
#142 Jered Weaver 0pts #63 Carlos Zambrano SP 8pts (Nice, pulling the big boys out in the end.)
#44 Bill Hall 0pts #10 Jimmy Rollins 0pts #49 Brandon Inge 0pts

Decent. But will it be decent enough?
#52 Brandon Wood 0pts #130 David Ortiz 0pts #88 Tim Lincecum 0pts #39 Micah Owings 0pts #76 Nick Markakis Chrome Black Refractor 89/99 10pts (CBR) x 7 (Markakis) = 70pts (HOLY COW!!!!!!!! A GRAND SLAM IN THE BOTTOM OF THE NINTH!!! Can you believe that I pulled this card of Makakis?!!! Outstanding! No matter what's happened I feel pretty confident about this pack.)

Pack 24 Total: 70 points
70 Freakin' points. Wow, what a way to finish. I swear that I just posted these packs as I pulled them. This just happened to be the last one.
I guess that the poll was right. Beardy and I both opened pretty good boxes. Both go t silks.
I can tell you that win or lose, that Black Chrome Markakis is going to find it's way to Beardy. You get a pull like that and are busting things with =the one guy in the world who could appreciate it more than any other...it's just like the stars aligned. Good times. Really good times.
There's still a Cabinet to open but that's really just for show. I'll drop that around midnight or so. It's pretty decent too.
