i somehow managed to stay up and watch that NJPW ppv last night, Wrestle Kingdom 9. it was fucking awesome. i've seen bits and pieces of wrestling from Japan over the years, but last night was my first full live show. i would have to rank it in the top 5 wrestling ppv's i have EVER seen. the matches were great. the storytelling was top notch. to hear Jim Ross call matches again was great. i'm not going to spoil any results for anyone who might be getting the replay tonight. all i will say is do yourself a favor and get the ppv and enjoy the hell out of it.
the ROH show last night was a clip show of the top matches of 2014. since i had seen all those matches, i took that as a chance to get a quick nap in. other than the 2 hours i got this morning, that's all the sleep i've had. good times.
my friend Paul came over to watch the Bengals playoff game. it was good to see that he's better now and out of the hospital. of course the Bengals lost. he left before the game was over. i can't blame him. it was starting to snow and he had other shit to do. we did talk about going to some soccer matches in the future. that should be some fun.
Manchester United won today in the FA Cup 2-0. of course, they looked like shit doing so. and they also have 2 more injured players. thank fucking god the January transfer window will soon be open. goals today from Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria.
now, let's rewind to yesterday...
the Dayton Flyers took Duquesne behind the woodshed and beat the shit out of them yesterday. of course, it took them awhile to get going, but once they did, it was awesome to watch. Dayton won 81-55. honestly, for most of the game it never felt that close. their next two games are on the road. and since this is the season of being challenged, Dayton lost another player yesterday for the season to concussion symptoms. sadly, it also ends his career as he was a 5th year senior. so, with the other players gone and injuries, Dayton has 7 guys more or less. i'm so proud that this team has basically said fuck it and accepted the challenge. here are some highlights from yesterday:
after the game we went to the new house to look for a few things. i guess the furnace hasn't been cleaned for more than 5 years. good times.
we made it back to the farm in time to watch the NFL playoff games.
the New York Rangers beat the shit out of Buffalo last night, 6-1. the power play is finally clicking and i'm loving it. Buffalo took three straight penalties and the Rangers scored on all 3 power plays. hopefully this is a good sign of things to come, especially with a west coast road trip coming up. here are some highlights from last night:
i was sad to hear about the death of Stuart Scott today. i can remember watching all those SportsCenters when i got off from work and he was definitely one that entertained me. fucking cancer takes another good one. do any bad people die from cancer?
once i get done with this, i'm planning on watching the rest of the Dallas playoff game, maybe some World Juniors hockey, and the new season of Total Divas starts tonight. the rest of the Sunday night shows start back up next week.
i guess i should eat something as well. lunch kind of just blew past me today.
thankfully none of the snow is sticking but it is certainly getting fucking cold. i might actually have to get a blanket out for sleeping in the chair.
i hope everyone is having a great weekend. hopefully you didn't lose money betting on the wrong UFC fighter last night. 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...
