Now With More Molecules!

Any other Adrenalyn fans out there? Something about the name of Panini's trading card game reminds me of the movie Idiocracy. I guess it's the funky spelling with an XL on the end. Kinda like the Big Ass Taco from Carl's Jr. in the movie, needlessly over the top.

Anyway, we are well on our way to filling up our Adrenalyn XL album. We’ve got quite a few doubles for trade if anyone else out there needs any. Here are 5 more recent packs we’ve opened.

Pack 1. Everyone’s favorite Irishman, Shaquille O’Neal and the greatest Australian since Chris Anstey, Andrew Bogut. (Chris Anstey is an inside Mavericks joke, I may be the only one laughing.)

Pack 2. Kobe has probably my favorite pose in the set, while Najera is the exact opposite. I can’t believe the Mavs traded Kris Humphries away for Najera last year. Dumb.

Pack 3. I’m not too familiar with any of these guys besides Rudy and Caron. Pops has a funny name though, so that counts for something.

Pack 4. Nash and Aldridge are the best players here. The Blazers scare me a little if we have to play them in the playoffs. A little.

Pack 5. Williams & Wade would make an awesome backcourt or maybe a law firm. It sounds good either way.

There you go, 5 fresh packs of Adrenalyn XL to get your juices flowing. Later.


  1. What I don't understand is this set has players in updated uniforms, but the sticker set which was release after this set, still has players in their old uniforms. Makes me wonder why Panini sat on the sticker set so long before releasing it. Those things are usually released early into a season.

  2. The Blazers should scare you! Gerald Wallace was a nice pick up, but Dirk always seems to light us up.
