i was saddened to hear the news that Gordie Howe died today. i never got to meet him but you could obviously tell the impact he had on a sport i truly love. rest in peace Mr. Hockey, your shift is done.
then i saw the news regarding David de Gea. when i saw he was trending on twitter, the first thought i had was who the fuck did Manchester United sell him to. instead, it was allegations from 4 years ago of him setting up a sex party that involved underage girls or rape or whatever for the U-21 Spain team. i thought the timing of this coming out was a bit fishy, especially when just yesterday he said in the Spanish papers that he is happy at United and was really happy the transfer to Real Madrid never happened last season. de Gea told the media that it is all lies and his lawyers are taking care of it. i'm interested to see what happens if he plays for Spain in Euro 2016.
but the best news i got today was when i found out one of my favorite local bands are finally putting out some new music for the first time in a decade. so, i know where my money will be going this weekend.
i really didn't care for much of WWE Smackdown last night. i always enjoy the Kevin Owens spots, but other than that, this show was more of what i've seen the last few weeks. i can't wait for it to go live in July.
thankfully, Lip Sync Battle was really fucking good last night. i think i enjoy the hour long episodes much better than the normal ones.
i did enjoy both Copa America matches last night. Venezuela knocked Uruguay out of the tournament with a 1-0 victory. Mexico knocked Jamaica out by winning 2-0. tonight, Chile takes on Bolivia and Argentina takes on Panama. should be two more good ones.
i did watch France defeat Romania today 2-1 to start off the Euro 2016 tournament. the goal they won it on was amazing. the games tomorrow are Albania vs. Switzerland, Wales vs. Slovakia and England vs. Russia.
the New York Yankees finished off their sweep of the Angels by winning 6-3 last night. of course, they lost another first baseman in the win. that position is now cursed i believe. they start a series with Detroit tonight. it's Old Timer's weekend, so hopefully the winning continues. they are somehow back at .500 again.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be NJPW and VICE.
i did enjoy San Jose defeating Pittsburgh last night, putting the party on hold. i think they play again on Sunday, back in San Jose.
i might watch some of Game 4 of the NBA Finals tonight. i'd love to see Cleveland tie the series up at 2.
i listened to the latest podcast from Sam Roberts' Show. it was about the Stanford rape case. everyone should give it a listen. you can find it by going here:
i have to take mom to get some documents shredded tomorrow morning, so i have no clue when i'll be back on here. i think she wants to also go to Hobby Lobby and Bed Bath & Beyond tomorrow as well. great.
i hope everyone has a great weekend. it's supposed to be hot as fuck here (90's) and rainy as well. exactly the weather i want to be out in public in.
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...
