the American Dream is gone

i had a whole blog planned today about the closing of the sale of the farm, finding out how much my truck sold for, etc, etc, and then right before it was time to leave to go the lawyer's office i got the news. being a pro wrestling fan since basically my birth, when a wrestler dies that i grew up on, it's like losing a family member. and when i heard today that Dusty Rhodes was dead, that one shook me to my foundation. if anyone is responsible for me being mesmerized by pro wrestling, it's Dusty Rhodes. one of the greatest wrestlers of all-time. one of the greatest promo men of all-time. today is truly a sad one for me. here's some videos of one of the greatest of all-time:
this next one is the moment where i became a wrestling fan until the day i die:
goodbye Dream, you will be missed. may you rest in peace.

a quick music break so i can get some tissues and get my thoughts together:

the farm is gone now. mom signed all the papers today. got 2 nice fat checks since 2 brothers are buying it. we also found out what went for what at the second auction. in a true HOLY SHIT moment, i found out my piece of shit truck sold for $2,100. and here i was hoping for $50. needless to say, my bank account is going to look much better when i get that money in 8 days. i think both my mom and i are at peace with the decision to sell off the farm. it will certainly hold a memory in my life for the rest of my time here on earth.

my new dvd player decided to fuck up last night. and since i am a relative retard when it comes to technology, i went a little fucking crazy over it. eventually, after unplugging all the wrong things first, i unplugged a cord in the back of it and plugged it back in and it rebooted itself and all is fine again. of course, unplugging the wrong shit fucked up all the shit i was recording on the DVR, so it became a long night last night.

i didn't watch any of ROH. i already knew what happened and i know it was a great episode.

i gave TNA another chance last night. other than the two Kurt Angle matches, nothing really floated my boat:

NXT was good last night. Becky Lynch is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Tyler Breeze should get called up immediately to the main roster. and you can never go wrong with a main event involving Samoa Joe (with Kevin Owens on commentary):

but, the winner (once again) from last night, was Lucha Underground. i really loved the action from last night. enjoy some highlights:

earlier in the day, the New York Yankees lost 5-4 in extra innings. they pissed away a 4-2 lead. that stopped their winning streak. and then i found out after the game, they put their closer on the disabled list with forearm stiffness. maybe if the manager wouldn't use him so fucking much in non-save situations... oh well. they are thankfully off tonight. they start a series tomorrow at Baltimore.

in some truly amazing news, team USA beat Germany yesterday 2-1. now, i know it was just a friendly. and i know Germany didn't have all their best players playing. but, still. the USA beat Germany in Germany for the first time EVER. enjoy some goals:
ladies and gentlemen, Bobby Fucking Wood:
not bad to score the winners against the Netherlands and Germany in a span of five days.

time for another break:

the weather here has been fucking atrocious. just hot as fuck. and my mother doesn't do well in the heat anymore because of her Meniere's disease. so, i'm hoping to be inside for the rest of the evening. nothing like it being 89 degrees when the sun is getting ready to set. fuck me.

tonight on the DVR will be The Comedians. i will probably watch that sometime after the NBA Finals tonight. i will watch most of that game, unless i have a sudden need for a nap.

tomorrow is going to be a busy one. my new chair comes finally. that should really help with my bad back and my arthritis. i also need to hit the bank tomorrow to deposit a check from shitty Frontier Communications. and i also need to hit the post office. it's supposed to be hot and stormy tomorrow. just great.

that's all for me today. i hope everyone is in a cool place, enjoying a drink or something else resting between their legs.

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...
