    It was amazing to me that all you had to do was change from a sports to alien invasion graphic over the same LED game and I was suddenly interested.

    OK Nurmix I'll let you know too.

    It arrived OK.

    Whew! I was so worried about your receiving it in a timely and safe fashion. Thanks UK, I can sleep now.

    That's funny, Scott. The only "team sport" I was ever really that into was hockey (watching and playing). Even so, I enjoyed Mattel's sports handhelds, but I leaned more toward space (or driving/racing) themes as well.

    that is so funny, my grandpa got me a "football" which I loved despite the fact that I hate football and have no idea what the rules are. I think that the lights and sound were so cool and it was so abstract that it was enjoyable even if you weren't a big fan of the sport itself.

    I'm disappointed UK. You didn't even tell me whether my mild insult (attempting to call you a smart ass for your previous response to my post) was grammatically correct for a Yorkie:

    And while we're on the subject, is it even possible for anything said in the Yorkshire dialect to be grammatically correct?

    It is impractical to introduce grammar to the Yorkshire dialect so nobody has ever bothered trying.

    BTW, a Yorkie is a chocolate bar, for Truck Drivers.

    The Yorkshire dialect is not all that dissimilar from Lancashire, or "Little Liverpool" as it is more commonly known.

    "Little Liverpool" is an insult of the highest order.

    One day the county of Merseyside will be separated from the mainland and floated out into the Irish Sea. Not close to the Isle Of Man though, you wouldn't want to spoil the views from there.

    Hull (maybe Humberside so it includes Grimsby and Scunthorpe) can do a similar thing on the east coast, for symmetry
