first off today kids, here's a couple links for your national poetry month goodies:
and a big thank you to Janne Karlsson for the magic he can do with the random shit i spew in this blog
i did watch both basketball games last night in the Final Four. i didn't see the UConn win coming at all. i did see the Kentucky win coming though. thankfully. i think Kentucky is going to win it all. UConn is too good of a story to win it. Kentucky is what is absolutely wrong with college basketball, which is why i see them winning. it gives assholes something to bitch about for months to come.
the last game got over in time for Saturday Night Live. but, to be honest, i didn't really give a shit about SNL as soon as Austin City Limits started on PBS. i never pass up any chance to see Nine Inch Nails perform. that was great as was the few bits i saw on Saturday Night Live.
the New York Rangers lost last night, 3-2. part running into a goalie standing on his head and part shitty officiating. the NHL has a habit of swallowing the whistle when it gets close to playoff time. which helps the dirty fuckers around the league. yes, i'm talking to you Chris Neil. i really can't wait for the day when you're a bloody mess laying on the ice wondering what week it is. karma is one nasty bastard. just remember that.
the New York Yankees won today, 6-4. CC pitched good enough and the bats did just enough, like hitting their first HR of the season. i'm still getting used to not having the hammer of god closing these games out. the high anxiety will either make the victory beer sweeter or i'm going to spend more time on the toilet.
tonight is jam packed for me. the Sunday night shows; Shameless, House of Lies, Silicon Valley, and Veep will all have to be squeezed in after i get done watching WrestleMania 30. hard to believe i've seen all of them. i am really looking forward to this one. if Daniel Bryan isn't the big winner after this ppv, it may be the first time in my life where i will seriously consider giving up this shit. and i'm not really sure what's going to happen as i know the McMahon family, including HHH, loves to just fuck with the audience as much as possible.
so, it's going to be a late one tonight. thank god i rarely sleep anymore. it's mostly cat naps more than anything. amazing the great sleep you can get watching European soccer with two teams you couldn't give a shit about.
so tomorrow's blog, if i make it through everything tonight, will be a lengthy fucker. also, the Yankees have their home opener. so, toss that on to the fire as well.
hope everyone is doing well. enjoy what is left of your weekend. and i'll be on here late afternoon with more of my filth.
peace and chicken grease fuckers....
