Yesterday, May 1st, is the date I celebrate the fact that I didn't die in 2013. As you may recall, in April 2013, I came literally 5 minutes short of dying. It wasn't pleasant, to say the least. On May 1st, 2013, I began to reclaim my life (not that I really do much with it, LOL) and each year on the 1st of May my family and I celebrate the fact that I'm still here.
Usually, I get a card gift. This year is no exception, I got a box of
the new 2016-17 Ice set! It's only the second hockey box I've opened,
and I have not typed up the Box Break Review of the first one yet- I'm
getting a little backlogged, I have opened several boxes that I have not
properly reviewed...I'll get there!
But this box, since it only had 24 cards, should be an easy one to type up, and I think, for fun, I'll show all 24 cards. they aren't in the order I pulled them, but they are in numerical order. I have no idea how to get this text back where it should be, sorry!
With these cards, posting them to the Trading Card Database put me over 1000 hockey contributions, and also this final photo of the Shea Weber card is the 1000th photo I've taken in 2017. Yes, I keep track of that, LOL.
Ironically, May 1st was the first night I missed watching any hockey since February. With only one game on the schedule, and with the NHL not repeating, I missed it because I went to my model car club meeting instead, by time I got home it was done.
