i woke up this morning and it was 50 degrees outside. most of the ice and snow is gone now, but there is still some stubborn places that haven't melted yet. nothing like the lane and all the areas around the house becoming shitty and muddy right before we're supposed to get 3 inches of rain. fun.
the Dayton Flyers won last night 96-84. they should have scored 100 but they have a terrible habit of getting a big lead and taking their foot off the gas pedal. big game coming up on Sunday against Southern Cal. Dayton will be looking to get some revenge for their overtime loss last season in California. the game is close to being a sell out, so it should be a pretty good one.
was listening to the post game show on the radio and heard the news about the death of Pat Flanagan. he owned the bar where the post game show takes place. the best Irish pub i've ever been in. and one of the nicest humans ever. at least he didn't have to deal with this round of cancer very long. rest in peace.
of course, i got home and immediately got sick. not sure what the fuck it was from, but it's a little hard to enjoy a victory beer sitting on the toilet. good times.
today has just been one long dreary mess. must be the holidays.
i now have some injury concerns on my fantasy football teams. figures.
the Rangers play tonight against the Islanders. nothing like a little hatred for the holidays. if the Rangers lose tonight i will be beyond pissed off. plus my sister will be here, so that will add to the fireworks. something will get said, i'll end up blowing a fuse... good times.
i'll probably be on here tomorrow after Manchester United plays. hopefully i will be in a better mood. just don't count on it.
