as always, let's start with the bad news. the Dayton Flyers got their asses handed to them yesterday at Arkansas 69-55. the game never got closer than 11 in the second half. they don't play again until Saturday against Boston University. that should be a game where they get to take some frustration out on a team. hopefully.
the game last night between Columbus and Pittsburgh was one of the 5 best hockey games i have ever been to in my life. i told my friend Paul after the game, he should consider himself lucky that that game was his first NHL game. it had a bit of everything; fights, power play goal, short handed goal, penalty shot goal, overtime, shootout, and the building was probably 75% Penguins fans. Columbus won in a shootout 4-3.
we went out to eat afterwards and my sister picked up the check. thank you very much. it was a late drive home. we didn't get back home until after 1 AM. it was after Saturday Night Live and ROH. but, i did catch a bit of the New York Rangers highlights.
the Rangers won 5-1 last night in Vancouver. if this team can keep scoring goals like that, they could have another special season. here are some highlights:
as for Saturday Night Live, thanks to YouTube i saw most of what i missed. this one did make me laugh today:
after checking my email, i didn't get to bed until 4 AM. i was up this morning by 8 AM. all because of my hatred for a certain team. thankfully, Manchester United made sure today was going to be a good one for me.
Manchester United defeated Liverpool 3-0. goals from Rooney, Mata and RVP. but the man that made the 3-0 win possible was this man:
all my injury concerns for my fantasy football playoff game turned out to be ok. hopefully i can advance to the finals.
i got all the trash picked up and taken down to the lane. i fed the cats, who didn't like that i waited until after i watched the episode of ROH i missed last night. sorry fuckers, it was worth it. the tag match of The Young Bucks vs. ACH and Matt Sydal was fucking awesome.
i'm going to now read the Sunday paper and start watching some football games.
tonight, the New York Rangers play in Edmonton. i'm hoping to squeeze the game around my usual Sunday night viewing. i am really looking forward to the series finale of The Newsroom tonight. also tonight, i'll be watching Homeland and The Affair.
and then, hopefully getting some sleep.
hope everyone is having a great weekend. if not, drink something stronger.
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...
