(A Random Post)

Apparently…this will be The WAMBAG’s 1,002nd post. I didn’t even really notice the 1,000 milestone, but that’s fitting in a way, because that’s not what we’re about. We’re not about the numbers. We’re about winning a championship…together.

To quote the great Tracy McGrady in those awesomely ridiculous Adidas commercials…you were fooled. Even when I lead the league in scoring in 2003 although my team went 21-61 as a whole and I selfishly demanded a trade…you were fooled. Because you thought it was about me. I believe in five.

Usually when comic book series hit milestone numbers like 25, 100, or 600 they do something big to shake it up, even though the fact that they made it to a milestone number speaks more to the longevity and success of the current and past strategies than it does for the need for up-shaking. Sometimes they change to a new creative team, kick-off or pay-off a big story that reveals dark secrets from a main character’s past, or they kill a character off in an ambigous explosion that leaves the door open for a later return (ie. “It was just a Skrull imposter!”).

But since we missed the boat on the 1,000th, it’s just business as usual.

Here’s to another 1,002!

“God, I’m so embarrassed.”
“You should be. They took your intellectual property and turned it into one 90 minute long gay joke. It was like watching Batman & Robin all over again.”

Destined to fight the world's evil, The WAMBAG endures massive battles involving impossible stunts, races on horse-pulled carriages, and the desecration of enchanting medieval castles (all done with dizzying computer graphics). Not only does the eye candy keep on coming, the tongue-in-cheek writing and deep Transylvanian accents perfect the film with a dose of dark humor.

Tagboard (!?!)

Apparently PHP7 doesn't support the same function calls I wrote in 2008? I should fix this at some point.
