Honus Wagner card

Remember those nuns who were selling the Honus Wagner card?  Well, they got $262,000 for it.

Best part: the guys delivering the money from the sale made it all the way to Daley Plaza in time to deposit it despite the fact that they were 106 miles away, it was dark and they were wearing sunglasses when they took off.

Hit it.

    And “half a pack of cigarettes” which considering where the card came from, how could you not put that in??????

    “We’re on a mission from God” This was on last night. Channel surfing stops whenever this is on, no matter the part. I love when Princess Leia shoot at them in the sewer…and they just get up with mud on their faces. Funny stuff.

      Agreed. Pretty sure I’ve watched that 106 mile journey three times in the last month…

      But the BEST part of that scene was where Jake (Belushi) actually takes off his sunglasses. The ONLY time in the movie he is not wearing them.

      Yep, channel surfing stops for either The Blues Brothers or Shawshank Redemption EVERY time.
