the worm has turned...

i woke up to some unexpected snow this morning. just enough to really fuck everything up. luckily, the guy who farms out here came out to put a few tracks in the lane. he also brought up the empty trash cans. that means i won't have to start the truck again. that was a bitch yesterday. but, it got warm after 30 minutes or so.

Manchester United won 3-0 yesterday, with the goals coming from unlikely places. Danny Welbeck gets 2, his first goals since the first game of the year. Tom Cleverley gets the third goal, his first in exactly one year. hopefully with RVP down for the month, they actually get some of the kids to help Rooney out. a big 3 points. today was the Champions League draw. when i saw United got the team from Greece i was really pleased. much better than it could have been. i love that City and Arsenal got fucked on their draw. good times.

the New York Rangers won last night 4-3 in a shootout. i was in and out of the game for the most part. here are the highlights:

the season finales last night were excellent. Homeland really surprised me. i didn't think the show had the guts to kill off a main character. Masters of Sex ended with a perfect cliffhanger. and Total Divas once again made me laugh. and it did make me move Bryan Danielson up a few spots in my book. way out punted his coverage and made sure he did everything possible to make sure he didn't fuck it up. kudos.

tonight will be my insane mix of The Voice and Monday Night Raw. i want to see as much of both shows as possible. so, it looks like i may be doing some YouTube catching up on The Voice. i am very curious how the final 3 respond to the pressure of the moment. i'd be surprised if Tessanne doesn't win it. as for Raw, any show after a ppv is usually good. hopefully that is the case.

my fantasy hockey team did just enough to get a 5-5 week. better than a losing week. as for fantasy football, yesterday couldn't have gone much better. in the CBS league, i will be playing in the finals next week. i won by 11 points, mostly because my opponent didn't take an injured player out of their lineup. which was really good, as the winning points were on their bench. as for the one, i have a 72.50 points lead going into tonight. if i blow that, i don't deserve to go to the semi-finals.

my mom got her car into the mechanic this morning. turns out she might need a new exhaust system. hopefully that isn't a problem for the rest of the winter. or, hopefully she gets it taken care of before that vehicle becomes mine.

happy to see that the postal service still works. hopefully everyone has got what i sent out last week. a thank you to the ones that have emailed me.

well, i'm going to try to sneak in a shower and dinner before i sit my fat ass in front of the television for the rest of the evening. hope this finds everyone well. until we meet again...
