Analysis: Hey! Can't complain about a bonus hit! I guess those jacked up boxes can sometimes go in your favor, or something? If I can some out squeeze 15 points out of this last pack... yeah, that's not happening.

So there you have it kiddos. Another failure of a year, minus some cool hits. Next year... there is a special surprise. Lets just say I already know who my favorite player is going to be. Mark my words!

Analysis: So, picking Felicia Day probably wasn't the BEST pick in the world, I could have done better with a different pick I suppose. Ugh. Like, Jim Rice as my favorite player would have given me 60 points vice 20. That would have been nice, right? I'll just dream on.

Obligatory Picture:

Also, I found proof of my terrible relic... and other missing cards. Enjoy?

Selfie (With previously unpictured box topper...):

I'm enthused. I promise.

FINAL SCORE: 197 (Adjusted for Selfie)

That's all for this year. Until next time, keep it in the family.
