to say i was a little shocked last night when the news came down that the New York Yankees signed Jacoby Ellsbury would be an understatement. i figured he would leave the Red Sox but i never thought the Yankees would sign him. and certainly not to a deal worth $169 million if all the bonuses are met. wow. i should have played baseball.
add to that the news this morning that the New York Rangers have signed The King to a long term contract extension. i am absolutely thrilled they got this done and didn't let it drag out any longer. hopefully, Henrik knows now the expectation is winning the Stanley Cup.
i certainly wasn't surprised when the last 2 facing elimination on The Voice last night was Matthew and James. and when Matthew got eliminated, i immediately said aloud fuck you Christina. he was good enough to win the show but picked the wrong coach. as she is only interested in Jacquie winning. now, i hope Cole wins the show. Adam has 3 of the final 5, so he has the odds. i don't like him as a coach either, so i wouldn't be surprised if he fucks this up as well.
other than that last night, i flipped between some college basketball games and listened to the latest podcast of the Sam Roberts Show Online.
my today is pretty damn packed. Manchester United faces Everton this afternoon. i believe RvP may be back for this game. chances are they will need him. i'd love to see United get a home win over a side higher than them in the table, but i wouldn't be shocked if Moyes somehow fucks this up against his former club.
after that ends it's pretty much right into the car and on my way to watch the Dayton Flyers face Delaware State. what i am hoping to see is Dayton destroy this team and really start to flex the muscles of a top 25 team. they faced this scenario 2 years ago after winning a Thanksgiving tourney and got their asses handed to them by a shitty Buffalo team that only ended up winning 10 games that year. i hope they have learned from their mistakes.
after the game and a bit of food, i'm hoping to get back home in time to see American Horror Story. if not, there's always the repeat that comes on at like 2 in the morning.
not sure what's going on with my computer this morning. not fun when you put in a CD you really want to listen to and it says that it is blank. i'm really not in the mood to try to get this figured out at the moment, so i'm hoping a reboot is all i need to do.
that's all for me today. hope this finds everyone well.
