the Champions League final yesterday was high drama. Real Madrid scored in the first half, even though the goal shouldn't have counted. (Ramos was offside). When Atletico missed the penalty kick in the 47th minute, i figured that they had blown their chance. thankfully for them, they tied the game at 1 later on. the game went to extra time and with everyone cramping up, you could tell the game was going to penalty kicks. no one missed until Juanfran of Atletico hit the post in the 4th round. that set up CR7 to win it for Real Madrid. i believe everyone around the world knew it was going to end up with him without a shirt and Real Madrid winning their 11th title. sure enough. hopefully, in 2 seasons, i'll get to watch Manchester United raise that trophy again.
the New York Yankees got some awful pitching yesterday, which put them in a big enough hole that i never bothered watching much of the game. they lost 9-5. hopefully they can salvage the series by winning this afternoon.
i did watch most of Golden State's unbelievable comeback to force a game 7 against Oklahoma City last night. watching Klay Thompson shoot last night was like recalling dreams i had as a child of making every shot i took when i was dreaming that i was Larry Bird. it was truly fucking amazing.
American Masters was excellent last night. i could listen to music from The Highwaymen all day long and never get bored.
ROH was excellent as well. long live The Bullet Club.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be House of Lies, Silicon Valley, Veep and Penny Dreadful.
i imagine i will spend most of the day watching auto racing. the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600 are both today.
i did listen to the latest episode of Sam Roberts' Show podcast. if you want to laugh your ass off, give it a listen.
team USA crushed Bolivia last night 4-0. i believe that was the first time the boys had EVER beaten Bolivia. it was also the largest margin of victory for the USA against a South American team. needless to say, i was pleasantly surprised.
i've been talking to this woman online this morning. she says she lives right down the road from me. i guess in a few days we'll see if life has taken an interesting turn.
that's all for me today kids. i hope you had a great Saturday. hopefully your Sunday is even 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...
