Holiday Gift Guide

Saved by the Bell: The College Years (complete series) Zack Morris, A.C. Slater and Samuel “Screech” Powers rooming together in college? What’s that? add in a washed up pro football player as their resident advisor? Sounds like mid-90’s television gold — that is if it was the 90’s and you were in a coma. But the complete series (all 18 episodes) is available on amazon.com starting at $11.65. Remember the episode where Zack skydives for thrills and Kelly comes swooping back into his life and they embrace in the radio control room? Reminisce it all in your lonely basement bedroom.

Michael Vick Jersey Want to come across as an insensitive, anti-PETA, dog-hating a-hole? Buy yourself — or a loved one/well-respected family member — a discontinued Michael Vick jersey off of everyone’s favorite buy/sell website, Ebay. Jersey prices have been slashed since his messy situation over a year ago, affording you to buy a home and away jersey. This gift is perfect for the person who loves attracting negative, hateful attention and defending insane former athletes.
