remind me again why i root for the Sacramento Kings?

i woke up this morning and went through my emails. since i didn't watch much of the NBA All-Star game last night, i had no clue what kind of stupid shit the Sacramento Kings did last night. i figured they would trade DeMarcus Cousins, but i figured it would be for more than some fucking spare parts and draft picks. but, once again, it's the Sacramento Kings. they can't get anything right, no matter what the fuck it is. so, they traded Cousins and Omri Casspi to New Orleans for Buddy Hield, Langston Galloway, Tyreke Evans and a 1st and 2nd round draft pick in this year's draft. the first round pick can't be a top 3 pick, so most likely it will be around 10 or so. so they traded an All-Star for 3 guards that stink and two picks they will fuck up. great. at least Boogie gets out and now gets to play with his good friend Anthony Davis. the Kings are definitely testing my fucking loyalty on this one.

the NBA All-Star game was mostly a dunk exhibition and a glorified pick up game from what i did see.

Homeland was really good last night.

Billions was good last night. i do see why so many people think the show is bad though.

Big Little Lies was excellent last night. i never read the book, so i was coming into the show not knowing what to expect. i do love a well acted murder mystery.

Girls was pretty funny last night.

Crashing was really fucking funny last night. i love comedy and know of so many of the comics in the show, i really think i will enjoy it.

Last Week Tonight was fucking brilliant as usual.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Hate Thy Neighbor and Unlocking the Cage. i'll be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.

mom made an appointment to take the car in today to get an oil change and whatever else needs to be done to it. it has over 220,000 miles on it, so i figure some maintenance will have to happen. she told me about it this morning that she had it changed to this afternoon. that's why i am doing this now.

i managed to get some sleep last night without the help of NyQuil, so hopefully the worst of my cold is now over. of course, i figure the 2 rum and cokes last night did help me sleep.

i hope everyone had a great weekend.

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

peace and chicken grease...

indiana jones to the rescue

when Manchester United was trailing 1-0 to Blackburn today, i was not happy. Blackburn is not good, not good at all. thankfully, Marcus Rashford scored to equalize by halftime. things started to drag in the second half, so bring on the super subs... Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. sure enough, those two would join up for the eventual game winner. Manchester United won 2-1. they have advanced to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup. their reward will be a game at Chelsea in the next round. oh joy.

the New York Rangers defeated Washington today 2-1. that was a nice way to kick off Hockey Day in America.

ROH last night was really good. i love that Christopher Daniels is still as good as he is today as he was 15 to 20 years ago.

the NBA Saturday night festivities were ok last night. the 3 point contest was good. the dunk contest was boring. and i love that the big men seem to always beat the guards in the skills competition.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Homeland, Billions, Big Little Lies, Girls, Crashing and Last Week Tonight.

i will probably watch a little bit of the NBA All-Star game tonight as well.

i hope everyone had a great Saturday. hopefully your Sunday will be even better.

i survived

well, i made it through the Dayton Flyers game without coughing a ton or really having any problems. of course, i nearly tripled the amount of NyQuil you're supposed to take last night. i think that did the trick. as for the game...

Dayton came out flat and paid for it. it wasn't long before they were down by 15 points. i feared the worst. thankfully, they cut the lead to 6 by halftime. Dayton came out on fire in the second half and quickly got the lead back. St. Bonaventure kept it pretty close, or i should say their point guard kept it close. he ended up with 35 for the game. Dayton ended up winning the game, 76-72. that puts them back in a first place tie with VCU. i believe they have a 3 game lead on the rest of the league. Dayton plays again on Tuesday against George Mason.

it was great to see Brian Roberts go into the Hall of Fame at halftime of the game today. he's one of the best shooters i have ever seen at Dayton.

Vice News Tonight had another great week of reporting.

NJPW was excellent last night. i could watch Will Ospreay wrestle forever and never get bored.

Real Time with Bill Maher was fucking hilarious last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be ROH.

i will probably watch some of the NBA Saturday Night festivities tonight, probably the dunk contest and the 3 point contest.

Manchester United plays tomorrow in the FA Cup at Blackburn. hopefully they will win.

the New York Rangers play tomorrow at home against Washington. i will probably be on here after the game is over.

i hope everyone has a great Saturday night. call if you need bail money.

and here i thought i was the asshole

i went to the post office today to mail a bill out since whoever does our mail decided today of all days they would get it done before 11 AM. so, as i'm walking up to the door, i notice this woman walking up from the other side. now, regardless of how i look, i do try to be polite as much as possible. so, i held the door open for her. the look of disgust on her face was comical. i figured she was probably a lesbian. i dropped my mail in the slot and started to laugh. there has to be a poem coming soon i suppose. then i went to the grocery store. sun was out and it was getting warmer. and here i am sucking on cough drops hoping to get what i need to get before another coughing fit comes on. if i didn't have to get more cough syrup or NyQuil, it would have been under $100 again. of course, i did stop in the liquor store and got some spiced rum (they didn't have my favorite, fuck) and a bottle of Jagermeister. one way or another, this cough is going to die.

i'm really hoping to kill it tonight as i really want to go to the Dayton Flyers game tomorrow. halftime will be the Hall of Fame ceremonies and Brian Roberts is one of the inductees this year. he's one of my favorite players ever at Dayton. so, hopefully i'll be going to the game tomorrow. if not, i'll be pissed off watching it on television.

The Big Bang Theory was pretty funny last night.

Life in Pieces was hilarious last night.

Baskets was too fucking funny last night. the shit water coming up from the toilet was fucking hilarious.

the New York Rangers lost to the fucking Islanders last night, 4-2. so much for that 6 game winning streak. they play next on Sunday at home against Washington.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, NJPW and Real Time with Bill Maher.

i heard from the editor at Full of Crow on my query from last month. i sent them the poems that were lost from last year once again. hopefully i hear back from them soon.

my sister is coming down for tomorrow. mom got a new phone so my sister is going to help her with that before (hopefully) we go to the basketball game.

i have no clue when i'll be on here tomorrow. hopefully it will be early evening.

i hope everyone has a great weekend.

the cough that won't go away

for some fucking reason, i can't seem to shake this cough i've had for almost 2 weeks now. it's truly fucking annoying the shit out of me. i forced myself to write last night. first time i've written anything in 13 days. 4 poems. i think they are pretty good. i suppose time will tell. i've been trying to sleep more, hoping that would give the white blood cells some time to get to work. apparently they are full of apathy as well. good times.

i listened to the latest Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast today. you can find it by going here:

i enjoyed NXT last night. i thought the match between Tyler Bate and Trent Seven was pretty good.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, The Big Bang Theory, Life in Pieces and Baskets.

the New York Rangers play tonight at the Islanders. needless to say, i really hope the Rangers win tonight.

Manchester United did not play well today at all. if Saint-Etienne could have shot the ball on goal, United would have been in trouble. instead, Zlatan Ibrahimovic got his first Manchester United hat trick to give United a 3-0 win in Europa League action today. United next plays on Sunday in the FA Cup.

i know i need to go to the grocery store tomorrow. i will probably be on here after that i guess. my hopes of going to the basketball game this weekend has greatly diminished. i wanted this cough to be gone for at least a couple days before i went to sit with 13,000 people again.

oh well.

until we meet again my friends...

response from Otoliths

i heard back from Mark at Otoliths on my recent poetry submission. my poems "lost dreams", "every disease" and "out to play" have been accepted for publication in the next issue. that comes out on May 1st.

98 and still counting

when i turned the Dayton Flyers on last night, the game was about 5 minutes old and Saint Louis still hadn't scored. that told me everything i needed to know. i love when a team takes no prisoners and refuses to play down to its competition. Dayton won last night, 85-63. honestly, the game never felt that close. the senior class set the record for most wins and i feel pretty confident that they are nowhere close to being finished this season. most encouraging for me is that Dayton is much closer to being 100% healthy again. music to my ears. they play again this Saturday at home. hopefully this fucking cough will be gone by then.

Smackdown was really good last night. i loved the triple threat match between Bray Wyatt, John Cena and AJ Styles. having Bray win and keep the title should prove that he belongs in that conversation.

205 Live was really good as well last night. i can't wait for Austin Aries to start wrestling again.

Taboo was great last night, as usual. amazingly, the show keeps getting darker. it's slowly filling my Penny Dreadful void.

happy it must be nice if you found the right one day

i started thinking about this today and i realized i have been single for 41 straight Valentine's Days. i'm sure a good number of them have been by choice but, especially for poetic purposes, a good number have also been the process of elimination. i have often wrote about being on the wrong side of that process. it's not fun. so, part of me would love to break this streak. but, part of me also understands i'd have a better chance of winning the lottery or brokering peace in the Middle East.

mom felt well enough today that she didn't take her walker with her when we went out and about. she also didn't use a cane. i made sure to be close enough to her that she wouldn't fall. hopefully this means her back is much better and now it's just about getting the hip better.

the New York Rangers won last night in Columbus, 3-2. that's 6 wins in a row. they next play on Thursday at the Islanders.

Monday Night Raw was spectacular last night. Bayley winning the Women's Championship was great. but, the best part of the show to me was Kevin Owens. i think him turning on Jericho now caught everyone off guard. that's why it was so fucking perfect. now, the badass that takes no shit, fuck the world, Kevin Owens is back.

Hate Thy Neighbor was very interesting last night. watching a gay pride parade in Jerusalem and seeing both sides of it was both good and bad. i love the number of people that are against hate. i hate the fact that some old man is taking poor boys and making them soldiers for their version of a religion. i thought the host made the best statement though. both sides love to talk, but neither of them listen. now everyone can understand why nothing gets done for peace in the Middle East.

Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis was brilliant last night. i'm not a huge fan of the band, but i am definitely a bigger fan after watching the documentary. the footage from Paris and the terrorist attack was amazing to watch. i'm not going to lie, i had a few tears during the documentary. i highly recommend checking this out.

the finale of The Young Pope was great last night. i didn't think i was going to enjoy the series but in the end, it was much better than i thought it was going to be.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, WWE Smackdown and Taboo. i'll watch 205 Live sometime tonight on WWE Network.

the Dayton Flyers play at Saint Louis tonight. this is a game they MUST win and in doing so, the senior class will set the program record for most wins by one class in their 4 years. i'm really hoping to drink to that tonight.

a quick heads up, look for some of my poetry in the morning...

i'm not sure when i'll be on here tomorrow. i still have the trash to pick up here and next door, so that's all for now.

you'd think i'd be tired...

i think i got to bed around 4 in the morning or so. i was up 2 hours later as i'm still fighting this damn cold. staying hydrated means i go to the bathroom like a guy in his damn 70's. thankfully, i got a few more hours of sleep after that. i haven't taken anything for my cold for about 18 hours or so. a few coughing fits, sort of like back in my smoking days. it's up to the white blood cells now.

The Grammy Awards were pretty good last night, even though i was furious with the technical fuck ups during Lady Gaga's performance with Metallica. the tribute to Prince was awesome. i loved that Adele put so much into her tribute to George Michael. and Adele basically saying that Beyonce should have won all the big awards was truly a highlight.
and of course, a couple of shits from Ohio did this:
all in all, a pretty good night.

WWE Elimination Chamber last night was great. even though i was tired as fuck when i watched it, i really enjoyed all the matches. i love that Naomi is now the Women's Champion and i am fucking thrilled that Bray Wyatt is the new Heavyweight Champion. it's about damn time.

The Young Pope was excellent last night. the season finale tonight should be really good.

the return of Girls last night was ok. there was a few funny lines but... thank god it's the final season.

Homeland was great last night. i love a holy shit ending.

Last Week Tonight was absolutely fucking brilliant last night, as usual.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, The Young Pope, Hate Thy Neighbor and Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis (Our Friends).

i'll be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.

the New York Rangers will look to continue their winning streak tonight in Columbus. hopefully i'll be enjoying a victory drink later tonight.

i'm not sure when i'll be on here tomorrow. i believe i have to drive mom around for a few things and i need to go to the bank.

long live The King

the New York Rangers came from behind last night and defeated Colorado 4-2. it was the 400th win of Henrik Lundqvist's amazing career. he is the fastest EVER to 400 wins in NHL history. i really, REALLY hope that he is part of a Stanley Cup team with the Rangers before his career is over. and i really wouldn't mind if it happened this season. congrats to The King.

ROH was excellent last night.

Saturday Night Live was fucking hilarious last night. i can just imagine how furious Trump got when he saw a black woman pretending to be him. fucking classic. one of the best episodes in a long time.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be The Young Pope, Girls, Last Week Tonight and Homeland.

i will probably spend most of the night watching The Grammy Awards.

after that is over is when i have the tough decision. do i start to watch the Sunday night shows on the DVR or do i go over to WWE Network and watch the Elimination Chamber ppv that will most likely be over by then? i'll probably do both knowing my stubborn ass. my good friend Sam Roberts will be on the pre-show for Elimination Chamber, so i definitely know i will check that out.

all in all, just a fucking clusterfuck waiting to happen.

i went to the grocery store after a nap yesterday. i wanted to get there before the pharmacy closed as i had a ton of prescriptions to pick up. i didn't have one damn coughing fit until i was getting the last items on the list. thankfully, it didn't last forever. as i was taking the full grocery cart out to the car, this beautiful young woman smiled at me and said hi. i said hello. i then quickly reminded myself that she looked around 17. i don't want to go to jail with a cough.

another tip for what not to wear while really sick... white shorts.

i have no damn clue when i'll be on here tomorrow.

i hope everyone had a great Saturday. hopefully your Sunday will be even better.

a great way to start the weekend

i'm a pretty intense guy when it comes to the things i love. i'm one of those assholes who wears his passions on his sleeves and has no problem being "that" guy. while watching Dayton play at Rhode Island last night, i thought of the number of times that shit state school had destroyed a Dayton could have been great season and wondered if Dayton had it in them to return the favor. it was a miracle Dayton was only down by 6 at halftime. they couldn't put the damn ball in the ocean if they tried. and then they played the second half 5 on 8 as Rhode Island was shooting free throws for the last 13 minutes of the game. amazingly, Dayton is full of guys this year that don't give two shits about all the obstacles in front of them. Xeyrius Williams hit two gigantic 3's in the last 30 seconds to give Dayton the win, 75-74. oh, i enjoyed the fuck out of that victory.

Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.

NJPW was excellent last night. i don't think i could ever get tired of watching Will Ospreay wrestle.

Real Time with Bill Maher last night was great. it also showed why Piers Morgan is still a cunt.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Saturday Night Live and ROH.

the New York Rangers play tonight at home against Colorado. with a win they will complete a sweep of the 4 game homestand.

Manchester United played one of their best first halves i have seen them play this season today against Watford. chance after chance and finally a goal from Juan Mata. they sat back more in the second half but were able to get a goal from Anthony Martial on a wonderful counterattack. job done, 2-0 win. all 3 points. exactly what they needed.

i will be on here probably tomorrow morning. Sunday is going to be a giant clusterfuck between the Sunday night shows, the Grammy Awards and the Elimination Chamber ppv. a good night to have insomnia i guess.

i hope everyone has a great Saturday. call if you need bail money.

sometimes that light is a train

just when i thought i was getting better... i've coughed so damn much my throat now tastes like blood. i haven't bothered to even try to call the doctor as i know they are probably booked solid. but, on the bright side, my blood sugar was below 100 this morning. if i only didn't have to be sick as fuck for that to happen.

The Big Bang Theory was really funny last night. go ahead and give Jim Parsons another Emmy Award.

Life in Pieces was hilarious last night.

Fuck, That's Delicious was an extended cut from the Chicago episode.

Baskets was fucking great last night.

Lip Sync Battle was pretty good last night as well.

the New York Rangers won last night 4-3. they are finally winning at home again. they can sweep the homestand on Saturday night against Colorado.

enjoy some music:

i will probably be on here tomorrow after Manchester United plays in the morning.

i hope everyone has a great weekend. i hope this is the weekend i start to get better and actually feel good enough to write. what a concept.

light at the end of the tunnel

well, i think (or hope) the worse part of my coughing is over with. i think i hit bottom last night with a coughing fit that had me sweating like i was in a Turkish prison. today has been much better. i felt good enough to actually do my laundry and go out of the house. hopefully i'll feel even better by this time tomorrow.

NXT was pretty good last night. i'm sort of interested to see where it goes now with Bobby Roode as champion.

you ever cough so hard...

that you end up shitting your pants? welcome to my Wednesday.

i'm definitely not getting enough sleep, so this might be a short one.

between the arthritis and the coughing, death is a beautiful option.

there's a chance for snow this evening. hopefully i'm drugged into a coma and miss it.

Smackdown was excellent last night. i think they set up their Elimination Chamber ppv this Sunday rather nicely.

205 Live was great as well. i think i'm certainly going to enjoy Jack Gallagher vs. Neville in a few weeks.

Taboo was fucking dark as hell again last night. i think i had just enough NyQuil and rum in me that it started to make sense.

The Dayton Flyers did exactly what i thought they would do last night. Saint Joseph's was shorthanded with 3 starters missing. so, of course, Dayton thought the game was going to be easy and played down to its competition. thankfully, they changed things around in the second half and avoided that landmine. Dayton won 77-70.

the New York Rangers won last night 4-1. The King stopped 43 of 44 shots. i still have a victory beer coming to me.

i just love being sick

i had to email my sister and tell her there was no way i was going to the basketball game tonight. i have been coughing for the last 2 days. i'm not running a fever but i definitely feel like shit. i went to the drugstore today and got some shit for my cough and to help me sleep. while i was at the store, life reminded me why i'm a loser. i'm standing in line waiting for this guy to get done with this beautiful cashier that i was really hoping to get a chance to flirt with. of course, an older lesbian opens up the next register and says, i can help you here sir. FUCK. there's another poem. i did laugh when i had to give the cashier the date of my birth so i could buy NyQuil though.

hopefully all the shit i got helps me get rid of this cough. if not, hopefully straight liquor will do the trick.

Monday Night Raw was very good last night. i would have loved to see Samoa Joe beat the shit out of Roman Reigns, but i understand. and i have no doubt that Goldberg taking on Kevin Owens at Fastlane means Owens is going to lose his title. that would make Goldberg vs. Lesnar at WrestleMania for the Universal title. that smells like what Vince thinks we want to see. as long as that means Owens vs. Jericho at Mania, i guess i can live with it.

Hate Thy Neighbor was about the budding racists in Ukraine. i have no problem when someone loves their country. when they are doing it with Neo-Nazi views, there's a big fucking problem.

The Young Pope was very interesting last night. there's only two episodes left. i have no damn clue where the show is going to go.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, WWE Smackdown and Taboo. i'll watch 205 Live on WWE Network sometime tonight.

the New York Rangers play tonight at home against Anaheim. hopefully they can get another victory and keep pace in the division.

the Dayton Flyers play tonight at home against Saint Joseph's. this will be the first game i'm going to miss this season. i think the game is on television. this is a game Dayton must win.

i did listen to the latest Jim Norton & Sam Roberts podcast this morning. you can find it by going here: https://soundcloud.com/jimandsamshow/ep-012-awkward-crush-interactions-henry-winkler-20170206

i've been up since 6 this morning and haven't been really able to sleep much today. i know what i need is a good 10 hour coma to let the white blood cells get to work. wish me luck.

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

peace and chicken grease...

response from Moran Press

i heard back from Stephen at Moran Press on my recent poetry submission. my poems "the little brown bottles", "women in prison", "end this charade", "easter sunday" and "some things you never forget" have been accepted for a 5 poem mini-chapbook. more info on that in the upcoming weeks.

one of the greatest chokes i have ever seen

the only way i was going to enjoy the Super Bowl last night was if someone did something truly stupid and if that someone was with Atlanta. thank god i got to be happy for a little bit. when the Falcons were up 28-3 i was not happy. now, my mother was thrilled since she's a Jets fan and hates New England. she was in one of her passive aggressive moods yesterday and i finally put my foot down. i forgot to take some things off of a chair so she made a stink about it and sat on the couch and then wanted to complain about it not being good for her back. i took the things off of the chair and i told her i'm only going to say this once. if you think you're going to take your passive aggressive shit out on me, you're asking for a murder suicide. that pretty much set the mood for most of the evening.

halftime reminded me just how many damn Lady Gaga songs i know.

when the Patriots started coming back, i was hoping they would come all the way. the Falcons made sure it was possible with some horrific play calling and a couple mistakes. as soon as the Patriots won the coin toss in OT, i knew the game was over. i will not remember this game as Tom Brady ending the debate on the best QB in history, etc. i will remember this game for the Falcons blowing a huge ass lead and choking away a Super Bowl. that's a cherry on top for any New Orleans Saints fan.

the New York Rangers won yesterday 4-3 over Calgary. hopefully they will now start to get on a roll.

The Young Pope was really good last night. tonight's show should certainly be very interesting.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Hate Thy Neighbor and The Young Pope. i'll be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.

the Dayton Flyers got a verbal commitment last night from a 6-7 forward from Czech Republic. music to my ears.

Manchester United beat Leicester yesterday 3-0. this was exactly what United needed.

today is a day of remembrance for all Manchester United fans.

i had to take mom to a doctor's appointment today. her hip replacement is scheduled for early April. at least it should happen after WrestleMania and the NCAA basketball championship.

it just started raining here and i think i'm coming down with a cold. just in time for the basketball game tomorrow night. joy.

i hope everyone had a great weekend. hopefully you made some money on the Super Bowl.

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

peace and chicken grease...
