Some people might look at my collecting cards of baseball players, and other sports figures as weird. It kind of is, after all, like our buddy north of the border says, they're just Pictures of Men. I feel it's acceptable to be a fan of sports, and collect the crap associated with it.
What I don't get is the massive coverage of the Royal wedding. The sewingmachinegal and I usually have the Today show on in the morning. For a variety of reasons, that maybe I will delve into later, I can hardly stand SportsCenter anymore. Today has spent millions covering the build-up to the wedding of the century. Who gives a crap? In my circle of friends and acquaintances, no one admits to giving a crap. I wonder what segment of our society cares about these powerless Brits.
Now Topps is on the bandwagon with their 50 card
commemorative set. Why? Ugh. I know there is a collector for everything, but really, collectible trading cards of a damn wedding?
