It really doesn't bother me how much athletes make.

It is extremely hard to keep your body in the kind of shape it needs to be, to even compete in these sports. Even the worst NBA player on any roster is better than 95% of the people out there who play basketball and aren't in the NBA.

While these guys do make a lot of money, you have to remember the constant travel and constant team appointments they have to keep. Playing on a professional sports team is more then just showing up for the game. And players like LeBron James, or Kobe Bryant who make 15 million dollars a season? That's a lot, but you have to understand that teams like the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers make tons of money off of them and their names. Merchandise, appearances...them just being on the team sells tickets and they aren't cheap. Season tickets for the Lakers are literally thousands of dollars.

In the end, it all works out. The highest paid players are making money for the teams they play for. It isn't the one sided deal it may seem to be.

Yeah, there was a period between 2005 to 2007 where I played absolutely nothing - and it isn't like I didn't have any consoles, I had a Gamecube, PS2 and Xbox sitting right there. I was just burnt on video games for some reason. I still actively followed gaming during that time, just had no desire to play anything.

Possible reason: Leading up to that lull, I was just out of high school with a crappy job and a lot of time on my hands so I played a lot of Halo 2, Project Gotham 2 and Tribes Aerial Assault (PS2) online. The hundreds of hours I spent playing each of those games ended up burning me out on games period for awhile.

We do get a few looks in public though for whatever reason.

I certainly spend more time watching GiantBomb videos then I do playing games. I honestly don't visit the site much, maybe once a week. I watch the videos via the Roku app and read the news via RSS.

Neither. Pop Tarts are fucking disgusting, you may as well eat jelly sandwiched between two pieces of dog shit that were rolled in sugar and sprinkles.

Leaving for the Least Coast? Ah well, nothing wrong with a change in scenery.

Glad the Roku app will be back up soon. It's my preferred way to watch GB content.

I can say pretty confidently that you're screwed. If the tracking information does indeed say that the package was "delivered" to you, that's all eBay will care about.
