happy July 4th to everyone. enjoy the fireworks, hot dogs, burgers, beers, and whatever else you do on this day:
last night was an interesting one. first off, team USA did not play that well against Guatemala, but still came away with a 4-0 win. hopefully they play better when the Gold Cup starts in a few days. i did like this goal though:
the New York Yankees got behind 3-0 last night and i figured, given the pitcher they were facing, it was done. silly me. Tampa took their starter out and the Yankees offense finally showed up. Tex hit a huge 3 run HR that tied the game in the 8th. the Yankees pissed away chance after chance to win the game. and then the 12th inning happened. i'm fucking sick and tired of Girardi over managing this team. he brought in a reliever when he didn't need to and of course, Tampa goes up 5-3. thankfully, Tampa walked the lead off batter of the bottom of the 12th. then the inning goes like this: strikeout, hit by A-Rod beating the shift, single by Tex to score a run, and then boom. there was fireworks going off outside the stadium. Brian McCann made sure they went off inside as well.
NJPW was excellent last night. hopefully one day the promotion will start airing matches in this country that are currently going on.
enjoy a quick music break boys and girls:
the WWE event this morning, Beast in the East, started off great. Jericho vs. Neville was a very good match. the ladies match was good, not great. i did like how they booked Brock Lesnar as he virtually killed The New Day. but for some fucking reason, the WWE put on the match that should have finished the show next. Balor vs. Owens was a fucking classic. and as much as i love Kevin Owens, this was the proper thing to see after the match:
the rest of my day looks like this: watching the Hot Dog eating contest, watching the Yankees, watching some soccer, including the Copa America final between Chile and Argentina. i figure tonight i'll find some fireworks on the television somewhere and then watch ROH and god knows what else. in between all that sitting on my ass, i'm figuring there will be some food bad for me, a long nap, a few items put together that mom wants done, and some bird watching as that is what passes for entertainment in this glorified retirement community i'm in.
i did talk to a stranger on Google+ this morning. i know, you have heard this before. her name is Rose, single, no kids, etc. so far, she hasn't mentioned needing money or Nigeria, so things are looking up. plus, her picture looks nice as well. that is probably a red flag, but i have the dreamer's disease.
that's all for me today. hope everyone has a great weekend. be safe. have fun. stay out of jail.
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...
