and it looks like another day of sunshine here. so, there is a little part of me that would like to actually go out and enjoy it. i haven't had my summer ritual bad sunburn yet.
enjoy some music before i get to the events of yesterday:
i did watch all of the Copa America final yesterday. i was stunned that Argentina blew that chance to win at the death of regulation. and then a little more stunned when Chile beat them in penalty kicks, 4-1. hard to believe Messi can be so good with his club and then be virtually invisible at times with his country. congrats to Chile on their first ever Copa America title.
the New York Yankees scored early yesterday and were cruising. cruising to the point where i actually fell asleep. so, imagine my surprise when i woke up to a 2-2 score, right after Betances blew the save by giving up a 2 run homer. i cleared my eyes and settled in for the bottom of the 9th. Tex got a miracle double. Jose Pirela came in to pinch run for him. Chris Young couldn't get a bunt down but managed to work a walk anyway. that brought up Ramon Flores:
the rest of the night was helping mom put up some stuff around the house, carry in boxes from the garage and watch some fireworks:
i did watch most of ROH last night (i finished it up this morning). a great main event between Red Dragon and Elgin vs. The Kingdom. and if you haven't seen Dalton Castle wrestle, i urge EVERYONE to do so.
another music break as i need to get some water:
after the Yankees game today, the USA women play Japan in the finals of the Women's World Cup. i can't believe the USA hasn't won the World Cup since 1999. hopefully that changes. after that is over, it will be time for the Sunday night shows. now, all of this will be on the DVR as i have no clue how long the soccer game will go. so, tonight i'll be watching Big Brother (mostly just to see the little details of what i already know), True Detective, Ballers and The Brink. closing out the night will be the season finale of Penny Dreadful. i saw this morning that the show will be coming back in 2016 for season 3. that made me very, VERY happy. hopefully the season finale is a great one.
i imagine if i still have any energy left, i will be doing some typing late tonight. i'm hoping the words keep on flowing after that poem i wrote this morning. it has the makings of a really good one.
that is all for me today. i hope everyone had a safe and wonderful 4th of July. enjoy the rest of the weekend.
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...
