when i woke up this morning there were roads closed and schools on delays and i ask my mother, didn't we only get an inch of snow overnight? and she says yes. crazy. you'd think this kind of weather doesn't happen here EVERY FUCKING YEAR. the wind has been really picking up during the day. mom's gonna have some fun when she comes home from work driving through the snow drifts in the lane now. thank god they are only a few inches deep. i got stuck in one years ago that was damn near a foot. that was a fun dig. good times.
Manchester United played like dog shit today in Champions League play. sadly, dog shit was a step up from how they had been playing lately, as they won 1-0 on a second half goal from Phil Jones. this allows them to win the group and avoid the great teams in the next round. still, they'll probably face a team they will struggle against. need to get some fucking midfielders SOON. they play again on Sunday at Aston Villa.
sure is nice to enjoy a victory beer again.
i split my fantasy football matches last night. i won the CBS one, which i am very happy about as that was against the best team in the league. my reward is the 4th seed in the playoffs and i get to play that team this week as well. joy. i lost the NFL.com one by less than 2 points. i really beat myself up about that as the winning points were on my bench and the guy that beat me was on my roster earlier this season. OUCH. i'm the 5th seed in those playoffs and have to play the team that spent all but the last day of the regular season in first place. good times. and if you think i'm a little anal during the regular season for fantasy football, the playoffs are a whole other level of insanity.
the New York Rangers play tonight at home against Nashville. i'd love to see a much better effort than the last 2 games. but i have my doubts. this team isn't talented enough to be a pretty team. and they aren't physical enough to be a mean team to play against. to put it kindly, they are mediocre at best. being 15-15-1 pretty much spells it out.
i did manage to catch a good portion of The Voice last night. i really enjoyed all 5 performances. it wouldn't shock me if Team Adam is the final 3 but i have no fucking clue who should go home tonight.
Monday Night Raw was pretty damn good last night. the crowd was great and i really loved how the Daniel Bryan chants threw HHH off his game in the final segment. helps that they were near Bryan's hometown. the final chaos between Cena, Orton, HHH. CM Punk, HBK, Daniel Bryan, and Stephanie McMahon was perfect. one of the better endings to a show in years.
it is supposed to get down to the single digits this evening. should be interesting to see if my truck will even start in this shit. i haven't even thought about the damn thing in over a week.
that's all for me. i'll be working on the Christmas cards tomorrow afternoon, so you lucky ones out there be checking your mailboxes soon.
