the New York Yankees continued their slide into pissing away a chance at the playoffs by losing to Boston last night 10-4. i think i might have turned the game off in the top of the 1st inning. the magic number though is down to 2. so, maybe they just backslide into the playoffs with all the other wild card teams beating each other up. sadly, if they do make it and win that playoff game, they will have to face the Blue Jays. i doubt that series lasts long. the Yankees face Boston again tonight if mother nature cooperates. Tanaka is supposed to go tonight. it's a big start as this lines him up for that wild card game. figuring their luck here lately, tonight gets rained out and they have a doubleheader tomorrow.
for some reason the DVR didn't record the first 9 minutes of The Voice last night. judging from what i could figure out, i didn't miss much. my favorite performance last night was an easy one to choose. anyone who is smart enough to do a John Prine song is a winner in my book:
The Muppets was pretty funny last night. Scream Queens was once again so damn bad it was great. Total Divas was nearly a waste of time. i was more interested in Tyson Kidd's injury but the whole show was basically about Paige being scared to settle down and Dolph Ziggler "trying" to get back with Nikki Bella. it was one of those hours where you remember that reality shows aren't actually reality.
time for some music kids:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be You're The Worst. i'm looking forward to NXT tonight on the WWE Network as this will be the last show before the next live event.
Manchester United plays Wolfsburg today in Champions League group play. this is a MUST WIN game for United. i'm not sure how much i will get to see of it though as mom will be getting out of her conference and heading back home pretty much at the same time the game is going on. she wants to meet at the car rental place so she can turn it back in early.
the New York Rangers play their final preseason game tonight vs. Boston. i can't wait for hockey season to start back up.
that's pretty much all for me today. the rain has finally stopped but my body is still aching. maybe a long hot shower will do the trick. of course, the phone will ring in the middle of that shower. i learned a long time ago, if you're waiting for something to happen, go do something else. when i lived alone at the farm and was waiting for a phone call, i'd either go take a shower or a long shit. it never failed, the phone always rang.
not sure when i'll be on here tomorrow. when i do get back on here, i'm hoping i have nothing but good news to report.
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...
