my fantasy teams did horrible yesterday. i won one game and will (most likely) lose the other two. thankfully, my picks did ok. if the Eagles and Vikings win tonight, i'll finish with 12 wins for the week.
the New Orleans Saints lost yesterday 31-19. i had a feeling they were going to pull it out yesterday late, but that quickly faded. it's only the first game, but that fucking secondary has to get healthy quick. they can't have another season where they have to out score everyone.
the New York Yankees found some heart and pride yesterday and a starting pitcher who could shut down a hot team. Tanaka pitched a strong seven innings and the Yankees won 5-0. could be the start of something or could just be the sun shining on a dog's ass. they start a series in that dump in Tampa tonight.
the Sunday night shows were excellent last night. i did manage to watch ROH last night. a really good episode this week. Big Brother was pretty funny. i'm interested to see who gets evicted tomorrow. Ray Donovan was good. Masters of Sex had a nice little twist at the end. The Strain was fucking fantastic. the entire episode had a few oh shit moments and the ending certainly left me wanting more. and it was great to have Last Week Tonight back on:
i wrote 7 poems today and typed them up this afternoon. i got a line stuck in my head last night that i had to get out today. 45 minutes later and i have 7 pretty damn good poems. that certainly gives me enough to do a submission in the next few days.
time for some music kids:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be Monday Night Raw. i figure i will be flipping between the Monday Night Football games and the baseball game. if i get bored, i'll finally watch that Jimi Hendrix concert i have on the DVR.
i will be on here tomorrow before Manchester United plays in the Champions League. it feels good to type that again.
i hope everyone had a great weekend. if i had quarterbacks on my fantasy teams that could actually throw touchdowns instead of interceptions, my weekend would have been great.
of course, if a miracle happens tonight and i somehow end up with 2 wins instead of one, i'll be a happy camper. as happy as a bitter asshole who's approaching 40 and still single can be i suppose.
as my mother always says, it could be worse. i ponder that each time my back starts to ache while i'm taking a shit on the toilet.
enjoy the visual 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...
