Moon Over My Hammy

This is rich.

A Chinese company claiming to be "Lunar Embassy" has had it's license suspended for trying to sell real estate on the Moon. Each owner of lunar soil was issued a "certificate" that ensured property ownership including rights to use the land and minerals up to three km underground. The best part is: thirty four people actually paid money (about $37 each) for real estate on the moon!

In an unrelated story, Mets owner Fred Wilpon has announced that plans to build his new stadium has been suspended due to land ownership issues. Who knew?

It's a moon joke. Nobody has pulled out.

I need to become crooked just so I can rip some of these people off. I wouldn't have to work a day in my life again.

"Nobody has pulled out."

Now we know why we're stuck with Jeff Wilpon.

SCREW YOU!!! I couldn't think of a tasteful joke involving pulling out so I opted to do none.

CLASSIC!!!

Metstra..if im not mistaken you said you were a blue shirts fan..

how bout them rangers?

Ming, after 7 seasons of no playoffs, I'm being cautious in my enthusiasm. I do think this season is different. And I'm willing to give Dominic Moore my Stephen McDonald award right now.

Now Metstra..lets not sell Petr Prucha short..he is doing a helluva job blocking shots and setting up oppertunites on PP's with Jagr and Nylander...Nylander's struggles putting the puck in the net are hurting Prucha's stats but his efforts last night blocking shots and sliding all over the ice tells the story about his blue collar style of play.

You would think a seasoned mets fan like myself would know that the first quarter of the season is meaningless other than positioning but I cant help but get excited.

I like Prucha too. Is Petr Prucha Czech for "Peter Puck"?
