with it getting dark so early here, it's very easy for me to slip into the winter blues. i do my best to cope and not fall in my traps, but... let's just say i'm a lazy fuck who is too smart to trick his own mind.
yesterday was a very long day for me. today is feeling like it will be longer.
the New Orleans Saints apparently can't win at home anymore. they played like absolute shit yesterday. a 41-10 loss that wasn't even that close. i stopped watching midway through the game and started watching the MLS final between Los Angeles and New England. that game was certainly better than the Saints game. plus, it was Landon Donovan's final professional game, so i wanted to see it. i'm happy he gets to go out as a winner. as for the Saints, if the Falcons lose tonight, they will still have a chance at making the playoffs. sadly, i'd prefer them to lose and get a better draft pick at this point.
i did order Final Battle last night on ppv. ROH put on one hell of a show. my favorite matches were the 6 man tag between ACH & The Young Bucks vs. Cedric Alexander & The Addiction. it was a fast paced holy shit match with great action throughout. the main event, Jay Briscoe vs. Adam Cole was fucking great. any match that has tables, chairs, thumbtacks, a few holy shit chants, plenty of 2 counts, a staple gun, and an incredible image to close out the show is worth every penny spent on getting the ppv. i'm a fan for life. just a great show.
the Sunday night shows were excellent. The Newsroom had yet another holy shit, i didn't see that coming ending. the series finale is next week. Homeland was excellent. i wish they didn't have the week off between the episodes. that would have made this episode that much more meaningful. The Affair did a good job of peeling back the onion a bit without revealing too much.
i woke up this morning amazingly refreshed after that long ass day. of course, 45 minutes of doing the dishes and my bad back was right back on my doorstep. not much has helped it today. thank god it isn't raining.
Manchester United played like shit today. too many fucking giveaways and surprise, surprise, another fucking injury. (insert superhero music here) RVP to the rescue. 2 goals from him and United stuns a Southampton team that outplayed them by a mile, 2-1. the win puts United in 3rd place in the Premier League. that's 5 wins in a row, first time that has happened since Sir Alex left the club. i suppose LVG is getting shit done faster than he thought it would take.
the New York Rangers play at home here in a few minutes. hopefully they can get a win tonight against the fucking Penguins. i'll be watching that as i listen to the Archie Miller show on the radio. i suppose i know why i am single.
also tonight is the usual clusterfuck of The Voice and Monday Night Raw. it's the Slammy Awards tonight on Raw, so i guess i'll be watching that.
later tonight i'll watch Men in Blazers as well.
i was happy that Ohio State made it into the college football playoffs. they will have their work cut out for them facing Alabama, the number one seed in the playoffs. but, i like them as an underdog. keep doubting them. please.
i will be on here sometime in the morning. i think i may have to drive mom to a doctor's appointment and we have a basketball game tomorrow night.
hope everyone had a great weekend. i'm off to go enjoy a victory beer. 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...
