so i was up at 6 this morning wondering how and if Manchester United was going to show up today. after a little breakfast, i was thrilled that the team i have followed since 1992 somewhat resembled a team i would be proud of. of course, they were playing a horrible team (that happened to beat them at home earlier this season) so i'm taking all of this with a grain of salt. but a 3-0 win is worthy of me being happy, for at least a few hours.
my cousin showed up this morning to pick up his cd. he paid me more than i was asking, which is always appreciated. he wants me to make him a few more with all the other songs on his list. so, it looks like i'll be downloading a ton of country music i don't listen to. but i'm being paid to do it, so i'll survive.
had a little fun on iTunes last night finding some songs i've been searching for for years. granted, i wasn't looking that hard. but, now that there is still a little money left on the gift card, i figured i better get them. you'll see what they are down below in the music section.
thankfully, ROH was on at noon here today. i'm really happy i won't have to try to stay awake to see it tonight. another great episode. all 3 matches were excellent. i'm still hoping to go in 2 weeks to see them in Dayton. but, chances are that's not going to happen.
today starts the MLS season. i imagine i will catch a few minutes of the games today before i hop in the shower. given all the stars that have joined the league this year, i will be paying more attention to it.
i am looking forward to see how i do tonight at the basketball game. i'm expecting to feel a little pain as i'll be doing something i haven't done in over a month. hopefully, the game is good enough to cancel out any discomfort i have. it is a MUST win for Dayton. with a ton of luck, they could get the 4 seed in the A10 tournament. chances are, 5 or 6 is more likely. but, for a team that started league play off horribly, i'm thrilled they have rebounded the way they have. tonight should be a nice way to send out the seniors. plus, the hall of fame ceremony at halftime should be really good as well.
and hopefully i am back home in time to watch Saturday Night Live and turn all the clocks ahead 1 hour. that's one thing i am paranoid about, given all the European sports i watch. of course, i'll forget to change the clock in my truck when i take the trash down tomorrow and probably won't realize it is the wrong time for a few weeks. i can't miss the start of a soccer game but anything i have to drive to, whatever. i'll get there when i get there. that reminds me i haven't worn a watch since i was in the 6th grade. not sure people caught on that i really didn't give a fuck. i'm sure they know by now.
silly me, the tree house show must have had their season finale last week. so much for me paying attention. so, last night after the hockey game was all Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. that show is pretty much how i decide where i'd like to live in the country. music festivals, good food, and sports teams. all the other important shit i'll leave to the people with money.
the New York Rangers were frustrating the shit out of me last night. it was partly them, and partly the goalie for Carolina. but thankfully, the flood gates opened up in the 3rd period and the Rangers won 4-2. and 3 of the goals came from guys on my fantasy hockey team. that helped me greatly. they play again tomorrow at noon against Detroit at home. i figure Hank will start again as he will be seeking his 300th win in the NHL. should be a good one.
that is all for now. much like i tell my cats when i'm closing up the barn, be well, stay together, eat whatever you kill, and be curious at your own risk.
peace my enemies...
