yesterday was a day of victory beers. rare i can have one of those anymore.
Ohio State beat Western Michigan yesterday 38-12. the offense looked better but still left too many points out on the field. at least three would be touchdowns were under thrown. and they still didn't run the ball enough in my eyes. the defense gave up a ton of yards but did a great job limiting the damage. the special teams played really good. Big Ten play starts next week. they better fine tune everything once again.
the New York Yankees i guess are saving the offense for the playoffs. they got some really good pitching yesterday and just enough offense to beat the White Sox 2-1. they go for the series win this afternoon. the magic number to clinch a payoff spot is now 4.
i watched a good portion of the Global Citizen Festival yesterday. MSNBC was killing me with all the fucking commercials. nothing like the hypocrisy of trying to make the world a better place while still being a slave to capitalism. then the fuckers only showed bits and pieces of the Pearl Jam performance as of course, they had to run commercials. thankfully, i found the broadcast on YouTube and got to see everything i missed. the performances were great by the way. Eddie Vedder and Beyonce doing "Redemption Song" and Beyonce and Ed Sheeran doing "Drunk in Love" were my top highlights. oh, and watching Bill Nye geek out to Pearl Jam covering "Rockin' in the Free World"
ROH was excellent last night. anytime an episode starts off with Matt Sydal vs. Kushida and finishes off with Nakamura vs. Adam Cole, you have yourself a damn near perfect episode of wrestling.
enjoy some music kids:
and now some of this and that:
i made some changes to my fantasy football rosters this morning. i guess i'll know by Monday night if i made the right choices or not.
the New Orleans Saints play at Carolina today without Drew Brees. i think they might keep it closer than people think, but i don't have much hope of them winning.
the New York Rangers beat the Devils last night 4-3. they scored 2 third period goals to win. they lost the exhibition 3 on 3 OT mostly because they took a penalty. 3 on 3 will definitely be crazy to watch this season. the team made some cuts after the game that kind of shocked me. but, i think the guys i wanted to get a longer look will probably be up mid-season anyway.
on the DVR tonight will be Last Week Tonight, The Strain, Ray Donovan, Masters of Sex and the VICE Special Report: Fixing The System.
i'm not sure when i'll be on here tomorrow. with mom being away, i have plenty of shit i want to get done. i need to go to the bank to made a deposit. i have a tree to cut down. i'm sure i'll have dishes to do, toilets to clean, carpet to vacuum and i don't want to be the asshole who waits until right before she comes home to do it. of course, that's probably what i'll end up doing. i do know i want to start cranking out the poetry submissions tomorrow and since i'll be going out to the bank, i might as well put the post office on the list. so if i'm a good boy and get my ass in gear in the morning, i'll be on here in the afternoon. but no promises.
i hope everyone had a wonderful Saturday. other than the rain and my bone spurs fucking with me, mine wasn't bad. enjoy your Sunday. may whatever ritual you have for the day agree with you.
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...
