so, with Manchester United playing this afternoon but not on television anywhere, i had an afternoon at the computer following along. thankfully, they won 4-0 to advance to the next round of the Capital One Cup. the next game is this weekend at Fulham, which lost today. hopefully the good run of play can continue on.
i did watch bits and pieces of The Voice. got a little bummed when 2 of my favorites got eliminated. but, i was happy to see Cole end up on Team Blake. he's one i have my eye on.
Monday Night Raw started off great with Cena getting the shit beat out of him. but, of course, he somehow wins, which really pissed me off. i would have turned it off but the creative team won me back with the interactions of the Wyatt Family with Daniel Bryan and CM Punk. that has the smell of genius at work in my mind. i can't wait to see where that goes. the rest of the show was just sort of there for me.
the New York Rangers played hard, but once again, not good enough to win. a 2-0 loss. i certainly wasn't in love with the officiating last night. i doubt i will feel any better about it tonight against the fucking Islanders. i wouldn't mind a victory, but i'm not getting my hopes up.
the football game last night was a fucking bore to say the least. i split my fantasy football matches. but, i did go 11-2 on the week picking games. i spent most of my day today going between the United game and figuring which players to target on waivers. my fingers are crossed.
so between another night of The Voice, another Rangers game, the NBA season starts tonight. i suppose i will check that out in commercial breaks until the last 5 minutes or so.
we're supposed to get some rain tonight. i'm really hoping it doesn't as the corn still needs to be harvested.
that's all for today. i hope this finds everyone well. peace and chicken grease.
