the New York Yankees pissed away a chance to make up ground in the playoff chase last night, leaving a small village on base while losing to Tampa Bay 2-0. they start a series up in Toronto tonight. as one of the outfielders said after the game, all the Yankees have to do is win 11 games out of the next 10 they play to make the playoffs. the reporters laughed as everyone knows, it might as well be over. i figure the Blue Jays will do everything they can to put the nails in the coffin this weekend.
team USA lost to team Czech Republic last night, 4-3, to finally end their stay in the World Cup of Hockey. it's the first time EVER the USA hasn't won a game at a international tournament. i think it might be time to blow it up and start over. you can't win much when your leading goal scorer is a defenseman with 2 goals in 3 games.
Fuck, That's Delicious was excellent last night.
Better Things was truly fucking great last night.
i picked New England to beat Houston last night, but i didn't think they would whip them like they did. i guess that's further proof that Tom Brady is a system quarterback if just about anyone can lead them to a victory.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be NJPW and High Maintenance.
i'm going to try to get to bed at a decent hour tonight since Manchester United plays tomorrow morning early as fuck. i will probably be on here after that, hopefully in a good mood.
the pills finally started to work for mom again. she hasn't been in as much pain today as the last couple days. hopefully that MRI on Monday clears a path to her getting better soon.
i might try to get a little writing done tonight as well. i've got a couple poems swimming up in my head that i really need to get out.
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...
