well, all the ice and snow is finally gone. i've got a part of one field under a few inches of water. no bridges washed out yet. but, i think the bad stuff is still to come. i've got a feeling it is going to look a little different come tomorrow morning.
Manchester United won today 3-1. a very good performance by the team. nice to see Rooney healthy again. hopefully the injury to Welbeck is nothing serious as he is just now rounding into his best form EVER for the team. and holy shit, the first Premier League goal for Ashley Young in 19 months. a badly needed 3 points.
the New York Rangers last night tried every fucking bit of patience i have. they lost to the Islanders 5-3, the ass clowns first regulation win in something like 17 games or so. i'd love to know who the fuck thought putting 2 young refs in this game would be a good idea. nearly the entire game was played with special teams. and i know if i'm grasping at straws trying to come up with reasons for why this team stinks, the management and coaching staff is lost as well. something has to change soon or the season will be lost.
i internalized all my hatred last night, so my sister and i got along fine. she's out with my mother at the moment at my uncle's i believe. they are having their Christmas today. i haven't participated in that for over 25 years now, so i really couldn't care. i believe my sister and mother and i are exchanging gifts tomorrow morning. that will be interesting as i will need to wake up early to get all my fantasy football shit done. plus, we have a basketball game at 2 p.m.
i believe the rest of today will be a mixture of watching it rain, maybe a little writing, watching some sports, and taking a nap. i have a victory beer to consume. i am looking forward to Saturday Night Live tonight. with Fallon and Timberlake involved, i am thinking this will be the best show of the season. i think ROH this evening is a year in review for Adam Cole. i'll be in and out of that.
i did hop on over to Noise Trade today and picked up some free music from fun. i'll include the link down in the music section. very good.
the cold weather comes back in tomorrow afternoon. i'm really hoping all this fucking water doesn't freeze all at once. i know for damn sure we don't have that much ice melter out here on the farm.
not exactly sure when i will be blogging again. maybe late Sunday night, maybe early Monday morning. i'm going to be a little preoccupied with fantasy football on Sunday to do much of anything else. unless of course my CBS team starts to shit the bed. i'll drag myself away from it, just for my health. and if you think i hate losing normally, imagine me in a championship game. it's not pretty. i've lost more of them than i have won so far. tomorrow could bring me even. and i really, really would love that.
that's all for me today. i hope you are dry wherever the fuck you are. be well. stay safe for all of you procrastinating shoppers out there. and don't be afraid to buy me something, i won't mind.
peace and chicken grease.
