amazingly, i got some sleep last night. now, before you get too happy, it wasn't good sleep. two hours in my chair, two hours in the bed and then, after being disgusted that i was up at 6:30, two more hours in my bed. i haven't got that much sleep in months. hopefully, that will help me stay awake for everything going on today.
the Yankees won last night, 4-2. was nice to see Chase Whitley get his first major league win, even though DRob threatened to fuck it up again in the 9th. that victory beer became a victory rum and coke, with more rum than normal. i think that explains the sleep. the Yankees play tonight but i doubt i will be able to see it. i believe it is on FOX tonight, so it will only be seen in New York and Kansas City. i'll hunt around to see if i find the feed on Directv somewhere, but i won't have my hopes up.
i watched a good portion of Portugal vs. Mexico last night. wanted to scout Portugal a bit since they are in the same group of death with the USA. Portugal won late, 1-0.
here in a little bit i will start my crazy sports day. first up will be the USA vs. Nigeria in their final tune up for the World Cup. before that is over, The Belmont Stakes will be running as California Chrome tries to become the first Triple Crown winner since 1978. and after that is over, the New York Rangers play Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Kings. this is a MUST WIN game for the Rangers. after all that, and hopefully a few victory beers, i'll be watching the new episode of ROH. i'm hoping their ppv coming up is at a good price. i might just be ordering it.
saw a news story today about how fast the internet is in Chattanooga, Tennessee. blew my mind. might have to check out moving there.
it's warmed up here today, just in time to create some havoc for tomorrow morning. the crops are looking pretty good, but a little rain every few days makes them look so much better. and that always leads to making more money off of them.
i finally got the check i was waiting for in the mail today. so, looks like i will have more stories from the bank on Monday.
that's all for today. hope everyone is having a great start to their weekend. i'll be on here in the morning tomorrow, after breakfast and trash duty. and hopefully before it starts to rain and after feeding the damn cats. good times.
be well. be creative. be the cool motherfucker in the bar that everyone knows better than to fuck with. be the prankster. be the gangster. be the only prick that can actually play the guitar.
peace and chicken grease my enemies...
