last night was a frustrating one for me. i knew if Dayton had any chance of winning, they had to play their best. sadly, when you have 2 starters that don't score and one happens to be your leading scorer, you have no fucking chance to play your best. and that is the frustrating part, seeing they lost by only 10. that did make the gamblers happy, as the spread was 10 1/2. my sister called from Las Vegas bitching about how she should have put some money down on it. after i cooled off last night, i sort of reflected on how great and unexpected this run to the Elite 8 truly was. hats off to the team, the coaching staff, and everyone involved. and please make this the bar that we strive to get past each year.
thankfully, i saved my victory beer from United's win yesterday to after the Dayton game. that gave me a little alcohol to have with my misery. and since i was wired from the game, i was able to stay up to about 4 in the morning. so, i did see all of Saturday Night Live. i loved it. Louis C.K. was funny as hell. and i also was able to catch the new episode of ROH. a great match between Elgin and AJ Styles. i haven't seen a time limit draw in years.
so, after i got the trash out and fed the animals this morning, i basically have spent my time today napping and fucking around on iTunes (i got a gift card). as usual, i'm all over the map with what i have bought today. but, that's the beauty of being crazy. you don't have to come up with reasons for anything.
tonight will be a crowded schedule, as usual for a Sunday. the New York Rangers play out in Edmonton. hopefully, they can get back to winning. and then there's the shows tonight. Shameless, House of Lies, and then over to HBO to watch Vice. i suppose i will try to squeeze some hockey in sometime during those shows. might be a night where i keep mom's tablet nearby.
but before all that i'll be watching the ceremony honoring the Dayton basketball team. i almost told mom we were going to go but i really don't feel like taking a fucking shower today. thankfully, the local tv station is going to air it. i think it's also going to be on the radio. so, that should be a nice way to cap off a great season.
that's pretty much all for me. i do plan on doing some writing late tonight. if i can bust out a good 5 poems tonight i will be thrilled. i'll let you know tomorrow how that shakes out.
hope this finds everyone well. if your brackets are still in good shape, fuck you. i'll be on here sometime tomorrow, hopefully after typing up a handful of poems.
until we meet again my enemies...
