my back tensed up in the morning yesterday, so i knew rain was on the way. sadly, the rain didn't get here until late at night. talk about a day of agony. and now i'm going to unload it on all 3 of you who read this. my apologies.
the Yankees lost yesterday, 6-4. they reverted back to the mistake filled first half of the season. a tad bit frustrating as they lost a chance to move up in the division as well. they will play this afternoon, needing a win to win the series and finish the homestand on a good note.
i figure i might check out some of the Baseball Hall of Fame inductions today. mostly, i want to see Joe Torre. the former Yankees manager certainly brought me tremendous joy in the late 90's.
Manchester United beat Roma, 3-2. they really only played a good 15 minutes. Wayne Rooney scored 2 goals and had an assist during those 15 minutes. LvG changed all but 2 players at halftime. the second half was mostly United hanging on for dear life. but, i'll gladly take a win. plus, it gives LvG plenty to bitch about and teachable moments for the squad to learn from. they next play on Tuesday against Inter Milan.
i did enjoy most of the UFC on FOX last night. with storms in the area, the local broadcast kept cutting in. the only reason i was pissed is none of the storms were actually local. they were mostly in areas that don't even watch FOX. but, at least i got to see the main event without any interruptions.
today is trash day at the farm. i figure i will do most of that once i get done with this. i have no idea when i'm taking the trash down to the road. i guess i need to check when it is going to storm today.
ROH was really good last night. if you love tag team wrestling, i highly recommend this episode.
another busy night of television is in store for me tonight. Big Brother, Ray Donovan, The Strain, Last Week Tonight, and Masters of Sex. and with any luck, i'll be able to get to bed before 2 in the morning.
i need to get the dishes done today as well. that will be fun with my body in pain. good times.
that's all for me today. i need to get my ass going. hope everyone is well. hopefully your Saturday night wasn't spent praying to the porcelain gods.
be well. be creative. be eager to send me cash. be cool.
peace and chicken grease...
