Future Group Break Update

Just to tease a little more on the potential future community box break...

I have obtained the rights to 6, yes, 6 hobby boxes.  I know in the last post I said 5 but I reserve the right to change my mind whenever I want.  Am I done with 6?  Who knows?  Maybe I am, maybe I'm not but as of right now, the number has been changed from 5 to 6.  Make a note of it.

As for other details, I'm still thinking I can manage this at $10 for 2 teams (one picked, one assigned).  That seems like a fair way to do things and should basically cover costs (probably not but who cares).  I have not officially rolled out the break and already I have 8 teams potentially wiped off the board because some people are too impatient. 

I will try to post more details as the days roll on.  I hope to have this break officially opened for business by the middle of next week.  I was shooting for this weekend but I will be busy as my band is playing a gig at the Pierogi Festival in Whiting, Indiana.  It used to be a quirky little festival that celebrates Polish heritage and those over-sized ravioli's stuffed with whatever you can imagine (no, I'm not Polish...not that there is anything wrong with that).  Ever since the Food Network covered the event a few years ago, the place is jam packed with people from all over.  Now they see crowds of about 200,000 come through there over the three day event.  My band got chosen to play one of the entertainment stages on Saturday at 2.  If you find yourself in Northwest Indiana about that time, stop on by.  We're in the beer garden.

Stay tuned for more details about the break.


  1. I'm all for beer and music and great food.... but last I checked, pierogis were Ukranian.
    Ah well... enough beer and who cares?

    1. I never said the festival made sense.

    2. Pierogis are Polish. Ukrainians called them petahe (at least the Ukrainians from the region of my granddad did).

  2. I'll jump in for the Islanders when you open it up. I don't do hockey normaly but it sounds fun so why not.

  3. I have my finger on the trigger

  4. What can we say, we LOVE our teams.

  5. I'm in for the group break (and I know Sal wants the Hawks so I'm just in for the fun if it).

    And it's a good possibility I'll end up in Whiting, IN sometime Saturday night for my favorite summer festival. I should know for sure in the next day or two (seeing as how it's Wednesday already).

  6. The suspense is killing me. Pretty cool that your band gets to play at a festival. My band only played at bars and parties.


Do you think I actually care about your opinion?
I might. So leave a comment and find out.
