I didn’t break this box. This box broke me.

Here’s my entry in the “Most Painful UD Black Box Break” contest:

Melvin Mora Game Day Lineup

You can hear the wind go out of my sails at about 2:04… At first I thought it was a Miguel Tejada, which I could have lived with, but then I saw Mora’s name in the number 2 spot, circled in black, mocking me. It was definitely a kick in the groin feeling. But at this point I still had hope for the second pack. Maybe I’ll pull one of those Mystery Dual Cut Redemptions. Or maybe I’ll pull…….

Garrett Atkins UD Black

Garrett Atkins ladies and gentlemen! Still, Card #2 is much better than the Melvin Mora. Which is like saying getting punched in the stomach is better than getting kicked in the groin.

Now I don’t want to offend any Rockies fans, or Melvin Mora’s mother, but when you drop $200 on two cards, Melvin Mora + Garrett Atkins = LOSE.

Oh well…. I took a shot and I missed. Big time. And it ricocheted. And hit me in the face.

You know what though? I’m about ready to bust some more high-end stuff. Gotta love this hobby.

    It’s weird, because after I watched this video my butt started hurting from the UD rape thats going around.
