here are today's links for national poetry month:
i woke up this morning with a knot in my back the size of a basketball. it hasn't got much better. and on top of that, i got the shits this morning as well. these are the days when i know i'm being punished for ignoring the 8 year old me that wanted to die.
the New York Yankees won last night 7-3. Tanaka pitched well once he got over his nerves and the offense came through in big spots. of course, the first injury of the season also happened. and it had to be at the spot where they have no depth, first base. fuck. so, this afternoon the Yankees go out and lose 4-0. Pineda pitched well enough to win. the offense was lost for most of the day and couldn't get a hit when it mattered. the one time they did instant replay fucked that up for them. why have the shit if you still can't get the calls right? anywho, another day game tomorrow which will start my jam packed Sunday.
the New York Rangers play at home tonight against Ottawa. if they win, they clinch a playoff spot. so, i'll be a little jacked up for tonight's game.
thankfully, i was able to watch ROH today at noon. another great episode with amazing matches. Hero defeated Strong and the Young Bucks beat Red Dragon for the tag team titles. if you have a chance to catch the episode, do so.
i believe Saturday Night Live is new tonight. after that airs, i'm thinking i'm going to try to sleep for more than 6 hours for a change.
Manchester United used a GREAT game from Juan Mata today to destroy Newcastle 4-0. Mata scored 2 with Chicharito and Januzaj getting the other 2. that should give the team some good momentum heading into a must win game in Germany on Wednesday. i won't think about that game until then. instead, i will enjoy this victroy beer.
i do plan on watching the Final Four tonight although i'm sure i'll be thinking what if since Dayton got so close this year.
today is kind of sad as i think back 20 years ago. Kurt Cobain had a huge influence on my writing, my musical tastes, the way i dressed, how i smoked my cigarettes, and how badly i wanted to try heroin. fast forward to today and i no longer smoke, still haven't tried heroin, but will still bust out a flannel now and then. yet, that music still resonates with me and my writing. and i still remember exactly where i was when i got the news. i remember the tears and the song. the Trotwood, Ohio library parking lot and the song was Come As You Are.
maybe i'll do a little writing tonight.
that's all for me kids. be well and i will be on here sometime tomorrow, hopefully after a Yankees victory.
peace and chicken grease...
