i was up in time to watch team USA take on Sweden this morning in the World Juniors hockey tournament over in Finland. the boys had all the fucking chances in the world, but when you go 0 for 8 on the power play and can't get any of your 46 shots past the goalie, you're not going to win. the USA lost 1-0. they next play on Wednesday against Switzerland.
that was over in time for me to get my mind ready for Manchester United vs. Chelsea. United hit the post twice in the first half. they missed two glorious chances in the second half. they clearly played better today, but that's 8 fucking games in a row without a win. something has to change.
and just when i thought my day was going to be shit, the New York Yankees came to my rescue. i can't believe they traded for Aroldis Chapman from the Reds. that will give the Yankees one of the nastiest bullpens to ever grace the planet earth. and the best thing is they gave up next to nothing to get him. they kept all their top prospects. thank you for the belated Christmas gift Brian Cashman.

and now some of this and that:
i got pretty much what i wanted out of the New Orleans Saints game yesterday. the Saints won 38-27. Blake Bortles threw 4 touchdowns, which helped me greatly in fantasy football. plus, i do believe it might end up being the last time Drew Brees plays as a Saint at home. so it was nice to see him go out and play like the old Drew Brees.
speaking of fantasy football, while nothing is official yet, i'm pretty damn sure i won both of my championship matches. that will end up being my 7th and 8th championships for fantasy football. i have a 27 point lead in my 5th place game going into tonight in my NFL.com league. my opponent has Denver's quarterback tonight.
the New York Rangers play tonight in Nashville. they are hopefully well rested and ready to go tonight.
i'm interested to see what happens on Monday Night Raw tonight as John Cena makes his return to the show. hopefully he gets his ass kicked again.
as you might imagine, my remote control will be getting a workout tonight flipping between hockey, wrestling and football.
i guess my uncle is back home now. they had to rush him to the hospital yesterday as he was not keeping anything down. they sent back to the nursing home last night once they got all that calmed down. it's all due to him not drinking enough fluids and since he doesn't do that, the side effects to the chemo is even greater. i think the nursing home released him just so they wouldn't have to deal with the family anymore. that being said, i won't be shocked if the phone rings sometime before 6 in the morning in the next few days with some bad news from next door.
i think i'm going to try to stretch out some and ice my back down. this rain just murders me anymore.
i hope everyone had a great weekend. hard to believe that 2015 is almost done.
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...
