team USA lost to Mexico last night 3-2. now, i'm not going to say that Mexico didn't deserve to win. they did. i'm not going to say that Mexico didn't outplay the USA for nearly the entire damn game. they did. what i will say is Jurgen Klinsmann has to go. i was all for his hiring and the promise of a fresh, progressive style of soccer. and then i see the results. the two biggest games he's been the manager, vs. Belgium in the World Cup and last night vs. Mexico, and his bright, brilliant plan is to just sit back and defend, defend, defend and hope you catch a break on a set play or counter attacking. when Mexico went up in extra time last night, the USA finally had to start to attack. and holy shit, they scored a goal in the process. what a concept. of course, a few minutes later they gave up the winner as they went back into turtle mode. i'm not sure who they should get to coach the team or become the technical director for all of US soccer. add on to yesterday's mess that the U-23 team lost and probably won't make the Olympics again and you see why the time is now for a change. it probably took me almost 4 hours to decompress after that loss last night. it will sadly take US Soccer a million times longer to get their heads out of their asses and do something about the problem.
i watched Saturday Night Live right after the soccer game. i needed a few laughs. thank god i found them:
ROH was excellent last night as well.
Ohio State reminds me of every punk motherfucker i grew up playing basketball with. so much god given talent yet they always just did enough to get by. Maryland was even in the 3rd quarter of the game yesterday, 21-21. their QB was running the ball like he was a NFL player playing against a high school team. i guess Ohio State finally realized they were getting punched in the mouth and decided to respond. Ohio State won 49-28. it NEVER should have been that close.
the New York Rangers had their home opener last night. i had to go on YouTube to find the player introductions. i was so happy i did:
they blitzed the Blue Jackets for 3 early goals and The King started playing like this:
the Rangers won the home and home winning last night 5-2. 3-0 to start the season while playing 3 games in 4 nights. that smells to me like a team on a mission this season. here are the game highlights from last night:
i managed to get my fantasy hockey team to even for the week. i'm going to roll the dice today and see if it stays that way. i'm hoping it does.
let's enjoy some music kids:
and now some of this and that:
tonight on the DVR will be Homeland, The Affair and Last Week Tonight.
the New Orleans Saints play the Eagles today. i have no fucking clue what to expect in this game. i'd love for the Saints to win as i could really use a strong drink today.
i'm taking a few chances on my fantasy football team today. it's one of those situations where i'm trusting my gut and hoping it doesn't have shit for brains.
i have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning. i haven't seen him in months so i get the feeling this is going to be a long one. i know i need some things checked, prescriptions renewed or changed, a flu shot, etc., etc. so i probably won't be on here until the afternoon tomorrow.
i hope everyone had a great Saturday. hopefully your Sunday is 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...
