i sent out 8 poems this morning, 3 to The Camel Saloon and 5 to 48th Street Press for their broadside series. i was in last year's as well. when i hear back from Russell and Chris, i'll be sure to pass along the info.
the poet of the day on my Google+ page is my friend Alan Catlin. i've been published with Alan since i began getting published. if you haven't read his work, i urge you to seek it out.
my poem "nuclear winter" is the featured poem at Jeremy Benson's website right now. you can find it here: http://www.jeremy-benson.com/FeaturePoetry.html
my thoughts on Wrestlemania are pretty simple. CM Punk vs. Undertaker was easily the best match of the night. sadly, not much of the rest of the show was worth a fuck. i did enjoy The Shield winning, mostly because Dean Ambrose is the future of this business. other than that, it was too damn predictable to be exciting at all. i was most disappointed with the Jericho vs. Fandango match. those 2 simply did not click at all. and considering Jericho is my 4th favorite wrestler of all time, you can imagine where i'm placing the blame. hopefully Vince is smart enough to spend the next year building some new talent so the relics don't have to carry the show any longer.
thankfully, the season finales of the Showtime shows saved my night. i really enjoyed all 3 of them.
the Yankees had a nice, i didn't see that coming, win yesterday over Detroit, 7-0. i doubt the Tigers will get shutout many times this season. amazing what decent pitching and some timely hitting can do. they play today in Cleveland, yet another opening day to go through. i imagine i'll sneak a peek or two, hoping they can finally win 2 games in a row.
tonight will be a true test of my attention span. on at about the same time for all of these, tonight i will be trying to view as much of the following as possible: New York Rangers vs. Toronto, the Voice, Monday Night Raw, and the National Championship game. if i'm not already insane, tonight should do the trick.
i am way behind in my fantasy hockey playoffs. if i pull this off in the games this week, it will be some kind of miracle.
and finally, a little game later on this afternoon between Manchester United and Manchester City. the result of today's match will basically determine my mood for the rest of the day, probably the week as well. a win, and i will be on cloud nine. a loss, and i will be pissed beyond belief. not that it will change the chances of United winning the league. it's just that losing to that team of fucking clowns burns me deeply. i suppose time will tell.
for those interested, i have Louisville winning tonight, 71-64.
hope everyone had a great weekend. until tomorrow...
