That's a perfect way to describe it. I'd never been to one of these things before, but when I got home, I told my wife that I felt like I needed a shower after being there.

It wasn't so bad here where I live (near San Diego)...I got a pretty sweet 1GB mp3/fm tuner for when I work out for like 30 bucks.

All 360s and Nanos were impossible to get and there were no big steals on TVs near me. Maybe next year.

Amounts are irrelevant. Mine was marked down more than 85% from retail.

You could sign a 34 year old starter with a career 4.60 era for 7 Million dollars a year. :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.

Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

I normally get to Best Buy by 2, but this year there wasn't really anything huge I wanted so I didn't even go.

Am I the only one that thought the term "Black Friday" was way overused this year? I literally never heard that term until this year and suddenly every media outlet was beating us over the head with it.

Even dumber: "Cyber Monday".

None can hold a flame to "Whiskey Wednesday" though.

Cyber Monday is a myth.

Black Friday is legit. You save a lot of money. It's a total pain in the ass, but you can save A LOT of money.
