Should I open it and watch it or keep it pure?

I really want to watch it...

Perhaps our playoff success has been sealed in that very wrapping for the past 17 years.

I was thinking similarly - that this HAS to be a good sign

1st see if you can't find a torrent of it, because personally I'm a big collectibles guy so I wouldn't open it.

I would wait until after our first game. If we beat ATL, don't open it. If we lose, open it. There has to be luck in there somewhere.

You know some poor fool somewhere in the mid 90's thought if he didn't open it up it would be worth some money someday. Only to give it to the DAV. Middle class savings plan?

I'll be honest - I'm a bit surprised at how many " Don't open" responses there are

Watch it. Not like it's going to be worth more than what you paid for it.... ever. We didn't even go to the Super-Bowl.

Heh I probably would if I had those things.

I have several old albums I still listen to and luckily a few of my favorite more modern artists still press vinyl... Jamey Johnson, Pearl Jam, Alice Cooper (sometimes)

Just one turntable. I do have a couple Shure mics in cases but no they aren't hooked up heh.

I still think pristine vinyl sounds richer and more pure than any new technology.

But anyway, that was a Beck : "Where It's At" reference.

I have Pearl Jam's "Vs." on vinyl and man.... so rich and deep. "Even Flow" is amazing. I also have their "Vitology" and it's so much better than on cd. Eddie's voice is richer, the lead guitar takes up a whole different space than the cd. It's much closer to sounding live than any disc.

Funny how that works

We won't ever say..

Man VHS is so much better than Blu-Ray - The colors pop more and produce vivid sound.

LOL



As an Anecdote-

The same Thrift shop has a Oilers Jacket Brand New with tags on it for $70

I re-shingled my garage while listening to the Chiefs play the Oilers in what I think was their last year in Houston... and we won. That has nothing to do with anything but for some reason I think I'll always remember it.

I don't know why they had to destroy the AFC west by moving Tampa out of the division! No respect for rivalries.

If you open it, the ghost of Steve Bono will be free, thereby releasing the curse of the unnamed kicker. We will then be able to win the Superbowl.

Well I watched it tonight and to be exact.. It wasn't what I expected

I expected a Video about the 1995 Chiefs - well of course since Marty and the Chiefs are Plastered on the Cover.

Problem is..

The video was just about the '95 Season in General - it covered all the teams
It was pretty neat - and to be fair the Chiefs seemed to have a bit more on them than some of the other teams.

To see some of these players and coaches back in the day was a lot of fun.

Are his initials L.E.? I've been wanting to know how you all felt about that bastard. But I'm pretty sure I know cuz I'm a chiefs fan so. And I wouldn't dare start a thread on him here lol. I swear if I see him in person I will fistfuck his mouth lol.
