Remember Pogs?

I did a little write up on pogs on my site ( http://geeksleek.com/remember-pogs/ ) and ordered some online to reminisce on the good ol days with Pogs. I know I can't be the only one that played with pogs. http://geeksleek.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Remember-Pogs.jpg Post your pogs if you gottem!
