yesterday seemed to have lasted much longer than just 24 hours. from the World Cup games to the amazing Sunday night shows, it felt like a week was crammed into one day. and it was worth it.
the World Cup games yesterday were amazing. the Netherlands came from behind to beat Mexico 2-1 with two very late goals. god, i hope that is how Manchester United will play under van Gaal. Costa Rica beat Greece on penalty kicks. i was amazed at how poorly Greece played up a man for almost 60 minutes. i guess it's just not in their DNA to attack. Costa Rica 1(5) - Greece 1(3).
that makes me 4 for 4 in my picks so far.
today France plays Nigeria and Germany plays Algeria. hopefully there will be two more wildly competitive games. i have France and Germany moving on, like most of the world does.
i wrote 2 poems last night and typed them up this morning. i really like both of them. i'll probably be sending out some poems in the next week or so.
i might have watched 10 minutes of the Yankees loss to the Red Sox last night, 8-5. that's three series losses in a row. not good. they play again tonight against Tampa. if they can't beat that shitty team, it's time to start worrying. or make a fucking trade already.
the Sunday night shows were really good last night. Big Brother makes me laugh as i love how they try to twist what they show against what actually happens in the house. Nurse Jackie was great. the ending really sets up next season nicely. Californication was great as well. to close the series off with the same song they ended the first season with was a great touch. i will really miss that show. Penny Dreadful blew my mind last night. easily, the best show of the last few months, maybe even years. i can't wait for the next season of that. Last Week Tonight was funny as always last night. that show is quickly becoming a favorite. i did watch The Leftovers last night. pretty fucking weird. probably would have helped if i read the book first. i'll try to watch the next episode to see if it grips me better than the first one.
i'm looking forward to Monday Night Raw tonight. i'm not pleased with the direction they went in the ppv last night, but that's not unusual. most guys who have watched for as long as i have think they can book it better.
my new meds seem to be working, knock on wood.
the weather is crazy as usual here. more chances of pop up thunderstorms today and tomorrow. as long as it doesn't knock out the satellite feed, i'm cool with it. i just want it to move out of here so my back can get some relief.
that's all for me today. hope everyone had a great weekend.
peace and chicken grease...
