Dayton was winning against #18 Baylor by as many as 14 points in the first half. Baylor slowly chipped away and i got the feeling Dayton was playing not to lose instead of playing to win. and sure enough, Baylor wins by 1 when Dayton's shot rims out at the buzzer. talk about a punch to the gut. they play again tonight against California in the 3rd place game. i'm interested to see how they respond to that kind of loss.
my sister arrived last night, beating the shitty weather and traffic. she's doing some baking today. no blowups so far, so i'm hoping that our recent trend of being adults with each other will continue.
a busy sports day ahead for me. Manchester United plays in Germany today in Champions League play. when i read about the plane troubles yesterday, i immediately thought back to the air disaster they had back in 1958. i do not have a good feeling about this game today. hopefully i am wrong.
the New York Rangers play tonight against Florida at the same time the Dayton game will be on. i think basketball will win out for the most part. hopefully the Rangers have a better game than the last turd they had.
the sun is out today but it certainly looks cold as fuck outside. i still need to go out and feed the cats and birds. i'm going to wait until after noon, as it hopefully will be above 25 degrees by then.
i didn't get any of the players i wanted in fantasy football this morning. and given the 3 games tomorrow, this is a crazy week for all of that. i'm hoping for a better week than last week. my chances of making the playoffs depend on it.
i was looking for a good laugh this morning and i believe i found it:
if you are traveling today, be safe. if you are getting an early holiday drink on today, have another one. and if you are not in this country and have no clue what holiday is coming up here... hope you have a great Wednesday. i imagine i will blog sometime tomorrow between doing my laundry and watching some football. i don't participate in the whole family (cousins, uncles, aunts, etc.) shit on Thanksgiving. i really have no desire to spend any time around the woman that molested me. fun times.
