A Rare Staff Editorial
Although this is clearly a fan site, we at DantasyLand try to eschew making commentaries on the stories we report. In this case, we felt that policy warranted an exception. Casey "Brewdawg" Brewer of Hoops World wrote a belittling article on Wally. We think it's fine to critique a player on their in-game flaws, but resorting to juvenile comments on someone's looks, fans, and/or grooming seems a little pathetic to us. Perhaps Mr. Brewer should grow up a bit before he posts any more of his thoughts on-line.

Whether you're a new visitor or and "old" one from Matt's page, we welcome you. The purpose of this site is to be a repository of all things Wally. To that end, we'll be offering links to Wally information, pictures (lots and lots of pictures!), and whatever else we can think of or scrounge up.
If you were a regular at Matt's, the gallery elements of this page may look familiar. We're taking over the reigns for Matt as he has gone on to pursue other ventures. We wish Matt continued success and happiness.
This is the very first update with our new ownership. Things may be a little rocky at first until we settle into a rhythm, but please bear with us in the interim.
In the mean time, please enjoy the Galleries.
Thank you for visiting,
The Folks at DantasyLand
