The perfect gift for the old arcade players out there...

Somewhere for the annoying and/or off-topic threads to go. Feel free to post about whatever, but abuse will still be dealt with, and possibly with more force. Especially pac-porno. ;)

Cool clock, but this stuff is so much better: http://www.cafepress.com/galaxiesgifts/435909

Let's all buy Dwayne Richard Dog T-Shirts, that'll confuse the hell outta them :lol: .

Where's my Mark Alpiger t-shirt with him hugging the Crystal Castles machine? :lol:

Ooo, better get a 100 pack of buttons while I'm at it.

And a bib, I need one of those. Maybe a Todd Rogers one, he is the pizza god after all.

I could go on.

Sorry to those on that list but you gotta agree that it's just too easy.

I wonder if they consulted any of the guys before using those pics. I wonder how many have sold? Gamers pictured probably didn't think those pics would go on anything. I know they didn't consult every gamer for the Houston event posters, as I was there 3 days before my brother in law pointed out my name on them; pretty lucky I was able to make it. I think they gave everyone a copy of the posters(2kinds). I got 6-7 game logo repro t-shirts of various titles, plus a turbosub t and a kids size(needed 2, but only had 1) as a comp for coming...I was going to buy a couple before as they were nice. The company donated them for the contest to promote them. I'll try to find a link to them, nice shirts. I was shocked at how nice the graphics looked and felt.

I'll thank you to know that I was kissing the game ! :wink:

Greg Erway told me that all were consulted, tho one has claimed to me that he wasn't. Perhaps he's pulling my leg...

As to how much that has sold, that's anyone's guess. I'd guess that sales are infrequent, but I wouldn't put a total of $250 a year out of the question... Maybe if they got some Mark Alpiger kissing products up, sales would go thru the roof ! Well, actually, things might go south, instead !

Yep, this was from an enterprise started a couple of years ago by Scott Evans. He did a nice job, and was quite generous to donate so many. To check these out, go to http://www.powerupclothing.com/

Yeesh, every time I see one of those I'm afraid I'll be next. If you see me dodging cameras you'll know why :wink: .

no offense intended but for superpac it is best to say Rick Fothergill has the highest verified score for superpac...not the WR.

BACKGROUND:native american indians kinda hate the Cleveland Indians baseball team using their peoples identity for the team name.
Sunday Cincinatti REds kicked the dirt outta the tribe 1-0 in the 12th inning. A dude named Rodrigez or Ramerez (i forget) scorded a run in the end to beat Cleveland. Go big red Machine!
