Monday Night Raw was pretty good. i'm a little surprised they are going to unify the heavyweight titles at a non-major PPV. i always do enjoy when CM Punk gets on one of his rolls on the mic. and the actual wrestling has been pretty decent here for the last little while.
as the snowflakes were coming down and as i was watching the last little bit of the NFL game, my mother decided to go to bed. that meant, i had to keep my voice down while watching the Dayton Flyers at midnight. yeah right...
Dayton started off the game with the obvious jitters. they fell behind by as much as 16 points in the first half. now, they were playing the #11 team in the country (Gonzaga), but still... thankfully, they went on a little run to get the halftime deficit down to 9. and then, holy shit... they shot an amazing 61% in the second half, made some clutch free throws down the stretch and got a HUGE win. highlights below:
they get to play Baylor tonight on ESPN. another upset and they will be in the finals. fingers are crossed and i have tried to do everything just like i did yesterday... not that i believe in superstitions or anything like that.
the game got over at 2:30 and it took me a good 2 hours before the rush of adrenaline finally was gone. i did get some decent sleep though, almost 5 hours or so.
The Voice last night was really good. i have no fucking clue who will be in the bottom 3 tonight. the talent this year is slightly better than any of the previous seasons. and the performances from Jacquie and Will last night were holy shit amazing. there's no chance those 2 will be leaving tonight. and hats off to Will for having the guts to sing At Last. most men wouldn't dare.
i suppose i should actually start my Christmas shopping soon. as i look at the flat tire on my truck, i suppose it will be all online once again this year.
hope this finds everyone well. my sister is traveling here as i type. thank god there is plenty of wine in the house. it will be needed at some point i imagine.
peace and chicken grease...
