the Yankees won yesterday 9-5 to finish the season 84-78. Derek Jeter got a RBI single in his last at bat, giving him 3.465 hits for his career. that puts him at 6th place all time. not bad. i thought the Red Sox did a pretty good job with the ceremony yesterday, albeit some of it was WAY over the top. did they really think Jeter was going to dance to someone singing RESPECT? i certainly got a little misty when he left the field for the final time. i've watched his whole damn career. my second favorite Yankee of all time. hopefully he truly enjoys his retirement, he has earned it.
my fantasy football yesterday was full of heartbreak. i have lost one game by 4 damn points. i'm trailing in the other by 3 points going into the game tonight. and i certainly sucked at picking games this week. this is the kind of week that you tend to realize that sometimes when going with your gut, you find out your gut is full of shit.
the Saints got killed last night 38-17. and quite honestly, it wasn't even that close. thankfully, i only got to see bits and pieces of the game. they aren't going to start winning games until they fix that fucking defense.
thankfully, the Sunday night shows were excellent last night. Boardwalk Empire was great. i always love a brutal murder to finish off a show. The Strain was brilliant last night. another layer of the onion was revealed. i LOVE that show. Last Week Tonight had me laughing. Total Divas was pretty good. Ray Donovan was excellent. it certainly had a few shocking moments in the season finale. Masters of Sex was great. that had a few twists as well.
tonight is yet another clusterfuck on tv for me. i'm going to try to do a better job of watching Gotham tonight. that pretty much means that The Big Bang Theory is going to get the slight this week. The Voice and Monday Night Raw are on at that time as well. once again, i'll be relying on YouTube to help me with what i miss on the shows.
i think i may have found a new favorite music video:
around 4 in the morning, i wrote 5 poems. i typed those up this afternoon. i'm trying to write poems that are less than 8 lines long. got a few places i want to send to that want short poems. plus, i always love a good challenge.
one of these days i'm going to take advantage of this weather we are having and take some new photos of the farm. it's getting really close to harvest time.
that's pretty much all for me today. i hope everyone had a great weekend. thanks again for allowing me to waste a few minutes of your precious time.
be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.
peace and chicken grease...
