the hard freeze

i came down the stairs this morning and it was 16 degrees outside. before getting on the computer, i did the dishes. figured it was best to get some hot water going through these old pipes. that's definitely one of things i won't miss when we move from here.

now, back to where we left off...

the USA lost to Colombia yesterday 2-1. it was yet another game where they gave up a goal late. as much as i want them to be able to compete with the big boys of the soccer world, you have to be able to take advantage of your chances to do so. i would love to see how the complete team would do against Colombia, although i'm fooling myself into thinking it would be different.

i almost got hit 3 different times yesterday on my way to and from the bank. i just love elderly drivers.

mom did go to the basketball game with me last night. she was struggling but made it through. sadly, she's realized that her hearing is mostly gone in her left ear. that has heightened her sense of smell and just her luck, the guy next to her had mustard with his pretzel. i'm amazed she didn't puke on me. as for the game, Dayton won 76-52. they were lead in scoring by a freshman out of Detroit, Darrell Davis. that kid has the second coming of Brian Roberts (currently playing with the Charlotte Hornets in the NBA) written all over him. they next play down in Puerto Rico over Thanksgiving. highlights from the game are below:

we went to Waffle House after the game. mom believes her pills made her food taste like shit. i reminded her it was Waffle House. we got back home in time to watch Sonic Highways on HBO. another great episode.

today is yet another busy sports day. Ohio State plays at noon on the road in Minnesota. hopefully i'll be enjoying a victory beer this afternoon with the chili i made this morning. there are a few other college football games i'm looking forward to today. later tonight, the New York Rangers play in Pittsburgh.

also tonight, i do believe Saturday Night Live is new as is ROH. so, yet another late night.

mom is out driving, running errands right now. she felt good enough to try to drive alone again. i've waited by the phone, just in case. hopefully, everything goes well.

i need to get going. i have cats to feed and some other shit i'd like to get done before Ohio State comes on.

hope everyone has 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...
