i got back home last night after the hockey game and a nightcap at Waffle House before midnight. i then mapped out a way to see all the Sunday night shows i usually watch. like a dumb ass, i watched all of them and got to bed a little before 6 this morning. and sure enough, a few minutes before 9, i was up and going. i have tried to take a nap this afternoon. needless to say i'm going to crash big time at some point this evening. of course, maybe i won't.
the Yankees won yesterday 5-2. i didn't watch any of the game, only some highlights. i was happy to see Tanaka pitch without any further injury concerns. maybe he'll escape surgery for the elbow. i also saw the club hit the 15,000th HR in franchise history. no other major league team has reached that number. i guess that's what they are going to be proud about this season. they play again tonight. i have no clue how i will squeeze them in this evening.
the New Orleans Saints won yesterday 20-9. i watched most of the first three quarters of the game. it wasn't pretty but i'll gladly take the win.
thankfully, the trip up to and back from Columbus yesterday was pain free. the highway has been under construction for god knows how long. amazingly, no delays. as for the game, it was pretty good. Columbus beat St. Louis 4-3 in OT. St. Louis really carried the play for most of the game. i do love that our tickets for our 1/4 season package are on the club level. not too high but high enough that you can really see the ice well. i guess our tickets for the Rangers games are behind their bench on the club level. that should be a fun time in early October. not sure how much mom is going to enjoy all the walking we had to do. her hip was really bothering her last night. i drove us back. i'm not a big fan of night driving, but... i figure sometime before i die her SUV will be mine, so i should get used to driving it.
i had a blueberry waffle last night at Waffle House. it is my go to meal from now on there.
as for the shows last night, i really enjoyed all of them. Total Divas was pretty funny given all the manufactured drama. The Strain was fucking creepy last night. i can't wait to see how this season is going to end up. Last Week Tonight was hilarious. Boardwalk Empire was excellent as always. Ray Donovan was a really nice build up to the season finale next week. Masters of Sex was really good. it will be interesting to see where it goes as well.
tonight is a cluster fuck of television. all at one time, the Yankees, Monday Night football, The Voice, The Big Bang Theory, Monday Night Raw, and Gotham will all be on. how the fuck am i going to watch all of them? hopefully, YouTube will come in handy tomorrow for what i miss. i really hope Gotham is on there as i really want to see that show. most likely tonight, i'll be flipping between The Voice, Raw, and The Big Bang Theory. i think the only thing i want for Christmas this year is a fucking DVR.
fantasy football finally went my way yesterday. i'm comfortably leading in both of my matches. of course, my picks weren't as good as i hoped. but, i'm still alive in the suicide pool.
mom is out of town until Wednesday, so i'm going to try to do my best to not burn the place to the ground. all it really means is i have to go into town each day to get the mail and i can listen to porn at a higher level. enjoy that visual.
that's all for me today. hope everyone had a great weekend. thanks again for allowing me to waste a few minutes of your 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...
