the New York Yankees saw their winning streak come to an end yesterday, losing 4-2 to Tampa Bay. they fell back 1 game each in the division and wild card race. they start a series against the Dodgers tonight to finish out the homestand. MUST win games for both teams, so it should be interesting.
the New Orleans Saints pissed away a lead and a tremendous game from Drew Brees yesterday to lose to Oakland, 35-34. so much for the defense being improved.
those two losses sort of left me in a funk for the rest of the day. my fantasy teams didn't do much better. i have no hope of winning my CBS Sports league game. i have 2 players going tonight, but i'm down 40 points and my opponent has the Steelers best WR going tonight. i'll chalk that up as a loss. my NFL.com league game is a little better. i'm trailing by a little over 3 points, mostly thanks to Drew Brees. i have a WR from the Rams going tonight and my opponent has a RB from the 49ers going tonight. hopefully i can squeeze out a victory.
thankfully, the Sunday night shows were excellent last night.
Lip Sync Battle was hilarious.
Big Brother was pretty funny. why are people shocked when they get fucked over on this show?
Ray Donovan was pretty good last night. the season finale should be interesting. Masters of Sex was good last night. hopefully this season will be better than the last one. Vice Principals was fucking hilarious last night. it sort of reminded me what happens when i drink too much tequila. Ballers was funny, mostly because of all the football players on the show. and finally, The Strain was fucking fantastic last night.
WWE Backlash was really good last night. i loved all the new champions. the pace and storytelling of the show was excellent and it got done at a decent time that i could still have some energy to watch all the other shows on the night. excellent work.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
nothing on the DVR tonight, i'll be flipping back and forth between Monday Night Raw and the two NFL games tonight.
mom didn't call the doctor's office today like i wanted her to. she wants to wait for the chiropractor to tell her how bad it really is. so i guess she needs a second opinion on her own pain.
i'll probably have to go to the grocery store tomorrow, probably after i take mom to the chiropractor. i'm sure the people watching my credit cards are wondering what the fuck is going on. going from barely being used each month to now being used multiple times each week, i can see why they might think they have been stolen.
i hope everyone had a better weekend than me. i'm not setting the bar that high anymore.
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...
