better late than never

my sports night last night was on the verge of disaster. i picked both football games wrong, everything i needed to go my way in fantasy football went the opposite direction and the New York Yankees were being no hit through 7 innings. thankfully, Carlos Beltran broke that up. but, the team continues to not do the little things to get runners in; get the guy over, productive outs, etc. this was further glorified in the 9th inning, trailing 1-0, when Jacoby "i may not get a hit again for the rest of the season" Ellsbury hit into a double play instead of doing whatever it took to get the guy into scoring position. thankfully, the Yankees decided to show some heart and have, easily, their best win of the season. a walk and a steal to finally get someone into scoring position. A-Rod hit a HUGE double to tie the game. mind you this is coming off a pitcher who had never given up a run to the Yankees in his career. they walked McCann to force Girardi into making a decision. the dumb fucks in the tv booth wanted a pinch hitter. i was yelling at the top of my lungs to stick with Slade Heathcott. i'm at the point this season where i would much rather watch a kid fail than some old overpaid piece of shit (yes, that's you Stephen Drew) fail yet again. all Slade did was take the first pitch and hit the second home run of his career to give the Yankees a 4-1 lead. easily, given that this season is spiraling down the toilet, the best moment and win of the season. what should also be remembered from the game is the pitching job CC did. god willing, this will be the win that will send them on a sprint to the playoffs. they are 3 games out of the division lead. they play 3 more games with Toronto early next week. the job at hand is to win another game tonight. keep it within 3 games and then take your shot at winning the division in a year when most baseball "experts" thought the Yankees would finish in last place.

i lost 2 of my 3 fantasy football games. they weren't really close, so i won't beat myself up to much as i simply didn't have the right players to win. i went 10-6 on my picks. that i will be disappointed with. oh well.

Monday Night Raw could have been so much better last night. it started off well:
but they completely dropped the ball with the women's title match. i don't mind that Charlotte won by DQ. i don't mind Nikki setting the record for most days with the title. what i do mind is using a finish that they had already used over and over again. it's so god damn obvious that Vince doesn't believe in female wrestlers as actual "wrestlers"; they are simply something good to look at or time for you to take a piss. now, it's all set up for Charlotte to win the title this Sunday at the ppv. but this god awful taste in the mouth of nearly all wrestling fans will take a match that i don't think the fuckers that write this shit can come up with. that and the fact that Nikki can't wrestle to save her life. now, throw in the John Cena factor and maybe she doesn't lose this Sunday as that fucker won't allow it. if that happens, the Divas Revolution will be officially dead and i do hope that people just turn the product off and go support something else. the only other part of the show i enjoyed was this:
and that's only because i hope they put the title on Kevin Owens. but, given the WWE recently, they will manage to fuck that up as well.

i got some FREE music on NoiseTrade this morning. i will post the links below in the music section.

i finally watched the Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church documentary last night. it was excellent.

time for some music kids:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Big Brother. i am shocked that no one has leaked who got evicted yesterday. i guess i will have to watch tonight.

Manchester United plays at PSV Eindhoven today in Champions League group play. i will be interested to see how Memphis plays today as PSV is his former club. hopefully he plays great as Wayne Rooney will be missing again.

after that is over i will get all the trash together and figure out what phone mom should get for the "home office". the ones she's had for years have finally died. mom will use something until it dies. if it doesn't last for more than 15 years, she's disappointed. i am the same way kind of, but that's mostly due to the fact i haven't had a steady income since i was 26. i go without new shit simply because i can't afford it.

i hope this finds everyone enjoying some great weather and the beverage of your choice. until tomorrow my friends.

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...
