Ohio State was cruising along last night, up 21-7. then, they made the horrific mistake that young teams do sometimes, and took their foot off the gas. as someone who has watched sports for 40 years now, i knew what was coming next. sure enough, Penn State defeated Ohio State last night 24-21. it was a comedy of fucking errors on special teams and the offensive line that did the Buckeyes in. plus, the coach had a rare shitty night as well. now, i wonder how far they fall in the polls.
the New York Rangers were down 2-0 after the first period last night. i wasn't a happy man. by the end of the second period, i was very happy. the Rangers scored 3 goals in the 2nd and went on to defeat Washington 4-2 last night. that's a good character builder that they should be able to use all season long. they play again tonight at home against Arizona.
the Red and Blue Game yesterday at the University of Dayton was good. the women's team is going through a little rebuilding stage now that the longtime coach has left. they still have some good players, but i could see them struggling some this upcoming season. the men's team looked really good. they have 4 talented seniors that should carry the load most of the season. the biggest surprise for me was how much better the sophomore class looked. they looked like they are really ready to contribute. here are some highlights from yesterday:
after the game, i had to go to the grocery store to get more of mom's medications. the pharmacy closed at 6, so i was in a bit of a hurry. nothing i hate more than shitty drivers when i have somewhere to be. thankfully, i got there in plenty of time. and then i brought home some food for mom and i, a late lunch i guess.
Saturday Night Live was really good last night.
Austin City Limits was excellent last night.
ROH was really good last night as well.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be The Strain, Shameless, Masters of Sex, Westworld, Divorce, Insecure and Last Week Tonight.
Manchester United plays at Chelsea later this morning. this is a big game, not only for the club but also for The Special One. hopefully i'm enjoying a victory beer later today.
the New Orleans Saints play at the Chiefs today. i'm hoping for the best but i'm a realist. they are a different team outside of the dome.
i hope everyone had a great Saturday. hopefully your Sunday will be even better.
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...
