i guess a little nostalgia helped the New York Yankees yesterday. after the retirement of Jorge Posada's #20, they actually scored some runs for their rookie pitcher. congrats to Severino on his first MLB win as the Yankees won 6-2. they will go for the split in the series today after the retirement ceremony for Andy Pettitte. his #46 will be going into Monument Park.
the wrestling last night was excellent. ROH was great. so great that i'm recording it again today. NXT Takeover: Brooklyn was off the charts great. the women's match between Sasha Banks and Bayley was one of the best women's matches i have ever seen. the storytelling was incredible. i felt sorry for Finn Balor and Kevin Owens to have to go after that one. but the lasting image of this event will be what happened after the women's match.
also on the DVR last night was the Austin City Limits performance from Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds. always good to have that one on hand just in case i need some inspiration.
enjoy some music and a kick ass poem perfect for a Sunday:
other than SummerSlam tonight, on my DVR will be the season finales of The Brink and Ballers; The Strain, Ray Donovan, Big Brother, Masters of Sex and Last Week Tonight. i have no clue when i will get around to watching all of them.
i helped mom this morning do some work in the flower beds and then put up some shelves in the garage. that certainly helped getting some shit off of the floor in the garage. plus, it will now force mom to go through the shit out there.
i figure at some point today i need to work in a shower and a nap. wrestling is going to be 4 hours long tonight, so i would hope not to be an old man and fall asleep before it's over.
that's all for me today kids. i hope everyone had a great Saturday. hopefully your Sunday will be even better.
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...
