what a difference a day makes...

i was a little anxious before the USA vs. Costa Rica game yesterday. and then i saw the head of US Soccer come out and in vague terms say that if "we" don't start winning, the coach will be fired. i loved it. being part German, i knew exactly how the coach and team would react. now, for the first 7 minutes or so, Costa Rica had them buried in their own half. and then came the penalty kick. it was a good call and i was happy to see Clint Dempsey taking it. he buried it to put the USA up  1-0. the goal also gave him 50 international goals. he and Landon Donovan are the only USA players to reach that mark in their careers. before the end of the first half, Jermaine Jones and Bobby Wood scored to put the USA up 3-0 at half. i was hoping some of the kids would play in the second half, but i think Jurgen was giving all us fans the finger by putting in 3 veterans. in the end, the USA won 4-0. they now control their own destiny in the group.
the USA will play Paraguay on Saturday. if they win, they will advance. if they draw, they will most likely advance. if they lose, they are eliminated. and since they seem to only play good when their backs are against the wall, they are in a good spot.

Colombia defeated Paraguay 2-1 last night. they will be a tough team to knock out of this tournament. the games tonight are Brazil vs. Haiti and Ecuador vs. Peru.

the New York Yankees got some great pitching last night and some offense to go along with it. what a fucking concept. they defeated the Angels 6-3. hopefully more of that will happen tonight.

Deadliest Catch was pretty interesting last night.

Maya & Marty was pretty damn funny last night.

two victory beers allowed me to get almost 5 hours of sleep last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Lucha Underground. i'll be watching NXT Takeover: The End on WWE Network for most of the evening. i'm really looking forward to the steel cage match between Samoa Joe and Finn Balor.

i did listen to Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast today. i highly recommend his interview with Matt Sydal. it's a great one.
you can find it by going here:

the weather is pretty damn amazing here today. sunny and a light breeze, high in the low 70's. damn near perfect. we've actually got the windows open. so, of course, the damn grass just had to be mowed. fuck this neighborhood. time to go feed the birds and find some more annoying wind chimes.

i doubt i watch much of the NBA Finals tonight. if it is close late, i might flip to it. but i doubt it.

i did see Manchester United made their first signing of the summer.
Eric Bailly. young defender that many people think will turn into a world class centerback one day. music to my fucking ears.

that's all for me today kids. i'm going to go outside and play in traffic. as much traffic as a cul-de-sac can possibly have...

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...
