i'm currently running on about 3 hours of sleep. needless to say, i will be a little extra cranky while watching the New York Rangers tonight.
let's go back to yesterday shall we...
the New York Yankees split a doubleheader, winning game 1 and giving away game 2. they won the series and are in first place, so i guess it's ok. they are off tonight and start a series in Chicago tomorrow.
i somehow made it through all the Sunday night shows, even though it took me forever. Total Divas was good, but scripted beyond belief last night. Nurse Jackie was good once again. Californication really had me laughing last night. Penny Dreadful had a HOLY SHIT ending. easily, the best show on tv right now. Last Week Tonight was brilliant. as for Silicon Valley and Veep, i enjoyed both of them. but, i was so damn tired, i have no idea if i was laughing because it was funny or i was delirious.
on to today...
Manchester United officially hired Louis van Gaal as manager today. he takes over once he is done coaching the Netherlands in the World Cup. he is a no non-sense kind of guy, so it will be interesting. Ryan Giggs was appointed his number 2, so that means the end of his playing career. but, hopefully in 3 years he is taking over the club for the next 20 or so. this will certainly make for an interesting silly season with all the rumors.
the New York Rangers play Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals tonight. Montreal announced that their starting goalie is out for the rest of the series. hopefully the Rangers take advantage of this HUGE opportunity. i expect tonight to be a nasty game as i'm sure Montreal will want some revenge for their goalie being injured (on an accidental play mind you). as long as the Rangers win and no one gets injured, i couldn't care what kind of game it is.
also tonight (all at the same time) are The Voice, Monday Night Raw, and Louie. hopefully the hockey ends at a decent time so i get to watch some of the other shows. looks like a night i'll be spending on YouTube.
i happened to do a little writing today. penned 5 poems in a little over 30 minutes today. so, with the one i wrote over the weekend, i typed up 6 poems this afternoon. i think i have a few winners in the batch.
a big thank you to everyone with their comments and reaction to my poem "all the damn yesterdays". i really appreciate it.
after feeding the animals today, i had to spray for insects in the cellar and around the house. that's always fun in a strong ass breeze. thankfully i didn't get any on me.
that's all for today kids. i need to get some dinner and get my mind in the right place for the game tonight. hope everyone had a great weekend. i'll be on here tomorrow sometime.
peace and chicken grease...
