i just watched the USA women's soccer team get knocked out of the Olympics by Sweden in penalty kicks. all i saw of the game was the penalty kicks as i completely forgot the game was on at noon today. oh well, it should be interesting to see what happens to the team now. not a good sign for the first tournament after the heart and soul of your team retires.
the New York Yankees came from behind to win 4-2 last night up in Boston. they took 2 out of 3 in the series, which i think says more about Boston than New York. the amazing thing is the Yankees are now just 3.5 games behind in the wild card race. tonight is A-Rod's last game as a Yankee. they start a series at home against Tampa tonight. it's a bit of a nostalgia weekend as tomorrow the 1996 World Series team will be honored. on Sunday, Mariano Rivera will get his plaque in Monument Park. hard to believe it's been 20 damn years since Charlie Hayes caught that popup.
Big Brother had the chance to be really exciting last night, and then like most of this season, it fizzled. but, after the double eviction that really didn't do much, Victor won HOH again. his plan (really Paul's plan) is to put up Corey and Paulie for eviction. that should do the trick for setting the house on fire.
Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll was excellent last night. i'm so happy none of my former girlfriends ever owned a chainsaw.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be Cypress Hill: Live from Austin.
i did listen to the latest episode of Seton Calling today. a great interview with Horatio Sanz. you can check it out by going here:
i will probably watch the USA men's basketball game against Serbia later today.
i finally shaved off most of my beard yesterday. i still have the long goatee but the rest of it hadn't been shaved in over a month. not exactly comfortable in 90+ heat. but, i did nearly pass out in the shower yesterday. all i could think of as i was drying off was if i fall, how long am i actually going to be down there? mom can't help me up. no one in this pseudo retirement community can help me up. so i toughed it out and made it to the fan in my room. good times.
not sure when i'll be on here over the weekend. Manchester United starts their Premier League season on Sunday. the Yankees play day games on both Saturday and Sunday. i'll shoot for the mornings and hopefully you'll live with getting it in the afternoons.
i hope everyone has a great weekend. take it easy and then take it again.
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...
