this is the problem with the week between the conference championship games and the Super Bowl. the never ending machine in this country has to find something to talk about. now, a part of me loves how awkward this is for the "real" media to be talking about balls, but another part of me is just fucking sick of it. did the Patriots cheat? yes, that's what they do. does every QB in the league try to get away with the same shit? yes, it's called being a professional. if you're not cheating, you're not trying. and i would love for the NFL to get this shit over with so this isn't the topic du jour come Super Bowl week. that way they can get to more important topics like what shampoo does Tom Brady use? what tips does Russell Wilson have for growing an ugly looking beard? how soon does Richard Sherman go off in the postgame press conference? you know, the real important shit.
i was in some pain last night. my left arm was driving me nuts. i figure with the weather systems changing here the next few days, i'm in for it. i took two pain pills to get some sleep last night. it worked, amazingly. i think i got almost 7 hours of sleep. that's like 3 days worth for me. of course, the arm still feels like shit.
i really just bounced around the channels last night. a little college basketball, some pro basketball, some pro wrestling, some home rehab shows, etc etc. tonight will be a different story.
i'll probably watch some of the NHL All-Star fantasy draft. i'd like to see who i'll be cheering on Sunday when i'm at the game. i'm also planning on watching the new episode of Treehouse Masters. and, i'll finally get to see NJPW on AXS TV. i love the Japanese style of pro wrestling. that should make for an eclectic evening.
first up for today is the Manchester United game in FA Cup action. they are playing a team they should beat. hopefully, they don't wait forever like the last round.
after that, i'm not sure if i'm going to the grocery store with my mother or not. i know i need to get my pills as i run out of one this evening. plus, we're running low on milk and bread. she's stubborn though, still wants to be independent. so, i might have to play the asshole son later on and force her to let me drive her. good times.
today marks 20 years exactly since i last saw my father. i'm pretty sure he still lives in the same county i do. i'm pretty sure he has for the entire 20 years. if you ever had to wonder why i hate the man... i got a good laugh in the paper the other day. one of the first names in the obituaries was James E. Campbell. my father's middle initial is M. i told my mother to look at it and realize just how close we were to one of the greatest days of my life.
and with that uplifting note, i bid everyone a great weekend. be safe. be drunk. have fun. only harm the ones that deserve it.
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...
