i decided i would take a few hours before i wrote this blog today. if i would have got on here right after the Yankees game, i'd be in jail.
i mentioned to my mother yesterday about not liking how many pitches it took for the Yankees closer to get 3 outs. and then i uttered, watch, that will come back to bite him soon. sure enough, soon was today. first pitch of the 9th, the Twins homer to tie the game at 2. this started my tirade of language that would have made sailors blush. the Yankees go on to lose 7-2 by the way. i know that DRob is not the hammer of god, but the dumb fuck has got to be better at getting outs quickly. shit, i know most everyone playing defense behind you is close to getting social security, but fuck, use them once in awhile. the trying to strike everyone out method isn't working. i really wish they had the guts to try Betances at closer just once. he, apparently, can strike out everyone. took 19 pitches to get 6 outs, striking out 5. it took DRob 26 pitches to get 2 outs and give up 4 runs. they play again tomorrow, probably getting humbled by King Felix yet again.
at least Team USA won today, 2-1, in their friendly against Turkey. i liked that they really tried to attack as much as possible. i'd love this if their defense played like something better than dog shit. you can't play 90 minutes of emergency defending in the World Cup and expect to win. and please, for the love of god, be clinical when you do get a chance. they should have scored at least 5 times today. that being said, Turkey should have had 3 at the very least. but, a victory beer is a victory beer.
the NBA Finals is set. a rematch from last season. if the finals are like last year, i will be entertained.
i did watch ROH last night. another really good episode. i'm really going to have to consider getting that ppv later in the month.
my good friend, Swedish artist Janne Karlsson drew me my bio today. i'm going to use this fucker whenever i can.
i'm going to somehow try to watch most of Game 7 between Chicago and Los Angeles and try to watch all my Sunday night shows and get to bed before 3 in the morning. i don't like my chances.
the usual shows for tonight; Total Divas season finale, Penny Dreadful, Californication, Nurse Jackie, Veep, Silicon Valley season finale (way too soon for that sadly), and Last Week Tonight. i should be able to get most of the first period of the hockey game in before the shows come on.
i'm starting to wonder if the raccoon has eaten some of the cats that are missing. i only saw 6 cats yesterday and 9 today. i do believe one of the 15 is dead. but five more would be quite the shock. i did some snooping around today as i was putting out some raccoon repellent. i didn't see any signs of death, but i know we have had this in the past.
the corn is really coming up nicely out here. we're supposed to get some rain this coming week. that and some sunshine should have the soybeans coming up before too long.
that's all for today. not a bad start to the month. of course, it could have been better.
hope everyone is well. hope you have had a great weekend. and hopefully the upcoming week of work won't fucking suck for you.
peace and chicken grease...
