I’ve commented on these lyrics in the past…but every time we play the Chili Peppers “Around The World”, I get annoyed.  I dig the song (the intro is one of my favorite musical intros), but the lyrics…mainly one part…drive me nuts.  Look, I don’t expect lyrical genius from Anthony Keidas, but you couldn’t come up with a better line than this?

I know I know for sure
Ding, dang, dong, dong, deng, deng, dong, dong, ding, dang.
I know I know it's you
Ding, dang, dong, dong, deng, deng, dong, dong, ding, dang.


I came across this star on the internet…and this cracks me up…I love the like minded nature of hockey fans!

Remember back in the '90s when people thought Beanie Babies were a GOOD INVESTMENT?  Turns out they MIGHT not have been the great investment we thought. compared the estimated value of Beanie Babies from the 1998 "Beanie Baby Handbook" price guide with the price those same dolls are pulling on eBay today, 15 years later.  Here are three prime examples. Stripes the Dark Tiger was worth $250 in 1998, and expected to be worth $1,000 by 2008.  You can get one for $9.95 on eBay. Seaweed the Otter was worth $7 in 1998, but expected to be worth $60 by 2008.  You can get one for $2.99 on eBay. Teddy the violet bear was worth $700 to $1,000 in 1998, and expected to be worth $4,000 to $5,000 today.  Believe it or not, it's rare enough that it's still selling for a good amount today, but not THAT much . . . $699 on eBay.

Based on the fact that Beanie Babies were not the good investment that many thought they would be…What did you buy thinking it would be worth something one day?  Did it go up in value? Here are the texts we got:
