speaking of the silly season, when i saw that Phil Kessel was traded to the Penguins today, i think i might have shit my pants. that's the last thing i wanted to see a team in the Rangers division do, get really better. the Rangers signed a few guys, mostly depth guys, today. i'm waiting on all the restricted free agents to get done, hopefully soon. the biggest news of the day was that Glen Sather was stepping down from being the GM of the Rangers. i believe somewhere i could hear angels singing. not because of the job Slats did, but because Jeff Gorton is the new GM of the Rangers. he's been wanted by numerous teams over the last few years and the Rangers always said no. this is the guy who really built the Boston Bruins when they won their championship, so i, like every other Rangers fan in the world, are hoping he builds a winner in New York. Slats will still be in the organization as the president. i figure he and the Rangers owner love each other, so he'll have a job until he dies.
please enjoy a quick music break:
the New York Yankees lost again last night, 2-1. once again, the offense has gone missing. and they are wasting too much decent pitching at the moment. they play again tonight. hopefully they avoid the sweep.
team USA beat Germany last night 2-0 to advance to the finals of the Women's World Cup. the USA did get lucky with some calls, but they certainly outplayed Germany for most of the game. hopefully they can win it all on Sunday.
as i mentioned earlier, Tyrant was excellent last night. i've caught up on the episodes i missed. this season has a nice slow burn to it. Deadliest Catch last night was excellent as well. it's fascinating to watch what happens on a boat when the shit hits the fan.
as for tonight, since it is Wednesday, it's pro wrestling night. on the DVR tonight will be ROH and Lucha Underground. i will be watching NXT tonight, mostly for Finn Balor and Samoa Joe vs. Kevin Owens and Rhyno. that should be spectacular. also on the DVR tonight will be Big Brother.
here's some funny shit i saw today that really made me laugh:
i've spent most of today doing my laundry. i didn't realize i had so many black clothes.
that's really all for me today. i've got clothes to fold and websites to check as i try to stay updated on the free agency madness.
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...
