Chauncey von Snuffles III

Chauncey von Snuffles III is a mini-pet you can purchase in Guild Wars 2 for 75 Laurels. Considering Laurels haven't been out long enough for anyone to acquire 75 Laurels, I got the opportunity to buy him during yesterdays press preview. Snuffles by his very name is deserving of his title as the runner-up in the Divinity's Reach Fanciest Cat competition, so when given 75 Laurels to spend as we saw fit, there was only purchase I had in mind. Here he is, in all his glory!

Thank you for these.  While

Thank you for these.  While the lack of special animation is unfortunate, the look alone is enough to justify purchasing this one.  ;)

It a lefty thing, essentially.Akers was talking last week about the adjustments he had to make Game Landry Jones Gold Jersey upon joining the 49ers this season after 12 years in Philadelphia. He bemoaned the upheaval of moving his family across the country. He spoke of the futility in trying to understand Candlestick Park infamously swirling winds, which he could face again in today home game against Arizona.just having a sensational season, Harbaugh said. was darn near perfect and flawless (against the Giants) touchbacks, onside kick, field Youth Curtis Lofton Limited Jersey goals. He doing a heck of a job. Akers is doing it at Candlestick, hardly a haven for kickers, makes his season even more Kids Marshawn Lynch Authentic Jersey notable. Much as baseball power hitters seek small ballparks in free agency, NFL kickers usually covet domes or at least stadiums without much wind.com David Akers on recordnear perfect went a step further in last Sunday win over the New York Giants, bouncing a perfect onside kick and making an ambitious tackle on another kickoff. That lessthangraceful takedown earned Akers some goodnatured grief from his teammates.like brushing your teeth with your opposite Chris Myers Game Jersey hand, Nedney said.No matter the details, Akers is clearly clicking. (He and Lee also cited the reliability of longtime long snapper Brian Jennings.) Akers is on pace to kick 41 field goals this season, Pink Dashon Goldson Elite Jersey which would obliterate the singleseason 49ers record held by Jeff Wilkins (30 in 1996).At this rate, Akers also would finish the year with 162 points easily Elite Aldrick Robinson Gold Jersey surpassing Rice record of 138 set in 1987. He traced a different route to the scoreboard, naturally, scoring 23 touchdowns that season.We talking apples and oranges, anyway, given the White Brandon Graham Elite Jersey dramatically different job descriptions of a placekicker and wide receiver. Even Sam Shields Mens Jersey so, to score 91 points in nine games means Akers is performing his duties with extreme efficiency.As he sails merrily along, nailing field goals and executing onside kicks and even making inartistic tackles, David Akers points to an unlikely factor in his smootherthanvelvet transition to the 49ers.was a little surprised when David decided to come here, because it not an easy place to kick, said Lee, who would know as San Francisco punter since 2004. guys Brandon Graham Green Jersey dream of a dome, and Candlestick is far from it. I just glad to have him here. Akers: played in the Northeast my whole career. It gets really breezy there. The difference is, Limited Lawrence Timmons Steelers Jersey you can kind of start to figure out Black Rob Housler Womens Jersey the wind. Out here, they tell me you can figure it out. Once you figure out that you can figure Curtis Lofton Limited Jersey it out, then you have it figured out that was Andy quote. White Arthur Moats Nike Jersey Nedney needed microfracture surgery to extend his career, and he decided that wasn worth it at age 38.This seems like an insidethehuddle nuance of pro football until you learn it was one big reason Akers felt White Brandon Weeden Authentic Jersey comfortable signing with the 49ers as a free agent. He knew Lee had spent the past six seasons holding for Nedney, another leftfooted kicker, and would not need to retrain his hands to do everything the opposite way.He has even made 5 of 5 field goal attempts from 50plus yards. Only three other kickers in the NFL have made five or more field goals of 50plus yards Kids Chandler Jones Nike Jersey this season: Sebastian Janikowski of the Raiders, Phil Dawson of Cleveland and Josh Scobee of Jacksonville.a huge factor, Akers said. a guy has done it for years, holding through high school and college, you used to catching the ball one way. Then all of a sudden you flip it around now you got the knee up and you holding with the hand. It can become a real mess. For leftfooted kickers, Lee holds the ball with his right hand and spins it, to turn the laces, with his left. This requires a certain deftness 49ers LaMichael James Elite Jersey of touch quickly, under pressure but it already second nature for Lee after all his time working with Nedney.The overall efficiency shouldn count as altogether surprising. Akers, who turns 37 next month, is a fivetime Pro Bowl selection who has made more than 82 percent of his career fieldgoal attempts. At the same time, he hadn made more than two from 50plus yards in a season until Youth Vernon Davis Pink Jersey 2011.Candlestick whiffs on both counts.Nedney gets it. Back in 2000, he signed with Carolina specifically because the holder there previously worked with a leftfooted kicker Vikings Erin Henderson Purple Jersey (John Kasay, who was injured that season). Nedney, like Akers, understood the risks of asking a holder to relearn his job.He living in the Santa Cruz Mountains, coaching special teams at his local high school and closely following the 49ers, his favorite team growing up in the Bay Area.The 49ers obviously are giving him a chance to shine. Their offense does not exactly stockpile touchdowns the way Rice/Joe Montana/Steve Young did in the glory days, and coach Jim Harbaugh leans toward conservative decisionmaking. He gladly settles for field goals, especially given Akers reliability.Jerry Rice deserves to have that record, Akers said, sheepish to land in the same sentence as the greatest wide receiver ever.That history, and the leftytrained Lee, trumped the challenges of Candlestick.And then Akers arrived at a key point. Maybe he thriving in San Francisco 23of25 on field goals, 91 White Darren Sproles Saints Jersey points, on pace to shatter Jerry Rice singleseason franchise scoring record in part because his holder, Andy Lee, already knew how to handle a leftfooted kicker.But Akers decided to come west, partly because of his association with the Harbaugh family. John Harbaugh, Jim brother, was Akers specialteams coach in Philadelphia for eight seasons, and their dad, Jack Harbaugh, recruited Akers to Western Redskins Rex Grossman Elite Jersey Kentucky. He ultimately signed with Louisville but remained friendly with the family.if I wanted, I couldn go out there and do what David doing right now, Nedney said. couldn kick a 35yard field goal (because of the knee), and he kicking 50yarders like it nothing. maybe it a lefty thing.
