i got up early enough to get some email work done before Manchester United came on. thankfully, United played an excellent game, winning 3-0. of course, seeing that this is the year of the injury for them, Di Maria left the game early with a hamstring injury. he's already been ruled out of the game on Tuesday. hopefully, that's all he misses, but i doubt it. it was nice to see Rooney and RVP score again in the same game. hopefully the team has turned the corner to a great season.
about 45 minutes before we were supposed to leave to go to the basketball game, my mother tells me that she doesn't want to go. so, before i could find someone else to go with, she asks my sister to go. my sister said yes, which surprised me after our blowout the day before. but, i figured i'd rather be interested in what happens than be at the game alone. we were very civil with each other and i think the tensions eased as the game went along. Dayton did their part, destroying UIC 75-41. below are the highlights:
we were going to go out to eat after the game but everywhere was fucking packed. so we just came home. back at home, i was able to see what happened in the games i missed while at the basketball game.
Ohio State beat the team i fucking hate, 42-28, but it came with a severe injury. their star QB, who set the BIG Ten record for touchdowns in a season earlier in the game, broke his ankle and is done for the year. now, Ohio State will have to use their 3rd string QB for the Big Ten title game against Wisconsin. not sure how they are going to pull that one off, but at least they kept the team i fucking hate from getting to a bowl game.
the New York Rangers swept the home and home with Philadelphia, winning 5-2. i got to see a quick replay of the game last night. i did enjoy the chants from the fans in the 3rd period of YOU CAN'T BEAT US. that made me laugh. and it was good to see some of the kids score yesterday. below are the highlights:
i really enjoyed those 4 victory beers yesterday. by the time i finished the fourth one, i was actually feeling pretty good.
ROH last night was excellent. i really enjoyed the match between Adam Cole and Matt Sydal. i thought the show did a pretty good job of setting up the next ppv.
i did watch some of the other college football games last night. that Alabama vs. Auburn game was fucking nuts.
my sister made it home last night. i think we are on pretty good terms at the moment. at the very least, i think we both have a better understanding of where each of us are in our lives. that's better than it was before.
today is going to be a day of trash removal, football, and hopefully some rest.
the New Orleans Saints play today at the Steelers (who happen to be my sister's favorite team). i don't like the Saints chances.
the only other thing on tonight that i'm really interested in is The Newsroom. the Showtime shows are off this week. so, that means i may actually get some sleep tonight.
i have a ton of trash to pick up and take down the lane. and of course, it is raining. this will be fun with my bad back.
hope everyone is having a great weekend. thanks again to all of you for letting me 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...
