I know this makes several blogs in a day, but you all need an excuse to help pass the day anyways, and I keep finding things that amuse me that I would like to pass on to you..."Are you not entertained?!?!"
I decided to pass my lunch hour by youtubing others Allen and Ginter breaks. Probably the most amusing was what a believe to be a couple dudes from Taiwan (the really got excited when they found a Taiwan country card, and gladly displayed a Ching-Ming-Wang National Pride card with their box hits. They happily ripped away, singing some Taiwanese rock songs and a smattering of english when they announced their hit cards. The best moment though was when they discovered a 1/1 Charles Goodyear mini, what I believe to be a wood card, but was tough to tell. It was hand numbered on the back 01/01. Anyways, the cameraman just kept whooping it up and saying " one of one, Goodyear, one of one" and just having the time of his life.
So that was pretty fun stuff. But what amazes me the most is how QUICKLY these guys go through a 100 dollar box of cards. It is pretty hypnotizing actually. He opted for scissors on the break, which is good because you can be embarrassed if you get an exceptionally tough back to rip open.
My question then to you is what is your box break ritual? As a matter of fact, lets have a little fun with this one. Send your ritual story. Be creative, but somewhat honest, and KEEP IT CLEAN. Me and my wife (I am volunteering her) will judge the entries and the winner will receive some wax TBD. Sound fun? No? Well do it anyways because I still have several hours left in my workday! :)
