i am a competitive asshole. anything i do, i either have to win or it is a complete waste of my fucking time. so, in typical asshole style last night, i started playing some pool game on the computer. and after losing for forever it seemed like, the competitive asshole switch got flipped on and i was fucking playing that game until i won. 3:30 in the morning, i had finally won. i started playing this game sometime around midnight. i looked at the time when i got done and just thought, fuck me. i still had email to go through and hopefully some sleep to get. i went to bed around 4 and woke up before 9 this morning. my back was killing me. i figured it was due to me being tired, and then i looked outside. a nice hard frost on everything as it got down to the teens last night. so, as you might imagine, i am full of fucking joy at the moment.
if i somehow make it to Saturday Night Live and ROH this evening fully awake, it will be a minor miracle.
Ohio State plays this afternoon against Indiana. i really wouldn't mind if they put up around 60 or 70 points today.
that game should lead right into the New York Rangers playing in Nashville. hopefully they can keep the winning ways on the road going.
this will be the make or break day for fantasy hockey for the week. i need another strong day of performances to pretty much wrap up another successful week. and speaking of fantasy sports, i made a decision this morning on the injured players on my fantasy football teams. when someone is probable on the Friday injury report, that means there is a 100% chance they are playing on Sunday. when someone is questionable on that report, that means it will be a game time decision. well, the injured player on my teams with that designation plays the late game Sunday night. so, sadly he's on my bench this week. knowing my luck, he ends up playing Sunday night and scores a couple of touchdowns. that's just the shit i will have to live with as i'd rather go with the guys i know will be playing. fingers are crossed.
the Gary Clark Jr. interview last night flew by. it was great as was he. i truly do believe he is the future of blues music.
Manchester United plays tomorrow morning, so i will probably be blogging before that happens; as that game will go right into the NFL games. and i will be in the hyper bitchy loud as fuck kind of mood tomorrow. especially if i have to wait for a few hours for my first fantasy touchdown of the day. never a good sign.
well, that's all for me. i can't decide if i'm going to take a nap before the Ohio State game or just start drinking now and pass out later. decisions, decisions.
hope this finds everyone well. peace and chicken grease.
