Copa America Update:
i am really happy that the USA defeated Ecuador last night, 2-1. now, the win puts them in the semifinals for the first time since 1995. it came at quite a price though, as three players will miss the next game because of red and yellow cards. so, i guess everyone is going to find out just how deep the team is. but, if they end up playing Argentina, they have nothing to lose. no one in the world will give them a chance. and usually, that's when the USA plays its best.
Euro 2016 update:
Germany and Poland did a good job of allowing me to get my afternoon nap in yesterday. i'm not a big fan of 0-0 draws. i did watch a good portion of Sweden vs. Italy this morning. Italy won late, 1-0. someone has to tell Sweden you need to get shots on goal to score. right now, Croatia is up on Czech Republic 2-0. Spain takes on Turkey later this afternoon.
Lip Sync Battle was pretty fucking funny last night.
WWE Smackdown was pretty good. i am really looking forward to the Money in the Bank ppv this Sunday. it has all the makings of being a great one.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be NJPW, VICE and Dateline: On Assignment.
Czech Republic just scored to make it 2-1.
the New York Yankees ended their losing streak last night by winning 4-1 at Minnesota. i think the Twins might be one of the few teams that actually suck more than the Yankees this season. i doubt i watch much of the game tonight either.
i did watch the last few minutes of Cleveland forcing a Game 7 in the NBA Finals last night. it was fun to see Curry get ejected and his wife bitch that the league is rigged. i wonder if she thought it was rigged when her husband was winning back to back MVP awards. i doubt it. LeBron had another monster game. it's funny, ever since the Warriors more or less called him a bitch, he has taken over the series. if he somehow leads Cleveland to the title on Sunday, he might as well retire as he will never do anything better in his career.
crazy scenes in the Croatia vs. Czech Republic game. flares were shot onto the field. a steward looks like he got hit with one. and it looked like the flares were coming from the Croatian fans, who are winning the game. crazy.
i listened to Sam Roberts' Show podcast this morning. a very funny way to start the day. you can find that by going here: https://soundcloud.com/samrobertsshow/srshow-33-mike-lawrence
Czech Republic just scored on a penalty kick to make the game 2-2, 94th minute.
i guess we're going out to an late lunch/early dinner for Mom's birthday later today. i think we might be going to Menards as well. honestly, i'm just the driver anymore.
i hope everyone has a great weekend. have fun. be safe. call if you need bail money or help hiding the bodies.
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...
