the New York Yankees got some more great starting pitching yesterday and plenty of offense to beat the Reds 9-5. they start another series tonight against Tampa. if they are "for real" about making the playoffs and being a threat, they need to win this series against the Rays.
Manchester United lost to Barcelona last night 1-0. honestly, the score was better than it should have been. David De Gea was the sole reason United only gave up 1 goal in the first half. United desperately needs help in the midfield and defense to play against a team like Barcelona.
i liked how the USA came out last night against Jamaica. they appeared they were taking the game seriously. of course, when Jamaica's best player (their goalkeeper) got injured and had to leave the game, it was like the USA thought the game was going to be easy now. once again, they were sloppy in the final third and it wasn't until a beautiful free kick from Jozy Altidore that they had a lead, 1-0. 4 minutes into the second half, Jamaica evened the score. go ahead and ratchet up the tension. Clint Dempsey put one off the post that had me pulling my fucking hair out. and then in the 88th minute, Jordan Morris, the guy who allowed his guy to score for Jamaica, makes up for his mistake with a wonderful goal. a cup winning goal. amazingly, they still haven't been defeated since Bruce Arena took over the job. i certainly enjoyed that victory drink last night.
Big Brother went as expected last night. sadly, i think Kevin ruined the surprise tonight. Ramses will get evicted and all the fireworks i was hoping for probably won't happen.
Lucha Underground was really good last night.
NXT was very good last night.
Snowfall was excellent once again last night.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight and Big Brother.

i'm hoping the damn rain has stopped. i know i need to get ready to take mom to physical therapy. i haven't had too many problems with the pinched nerves today. my greatest fear is that i'm developing carpal tunnel syndrome. i remember my father having it so bad in both wrists he had to have surgery on both of them. of course, that asshole had both done at the same time. that way we (mom, sister, myself) had to take care of him 24/7.
i can't imagine given my history being anything other than a poet.
i figure i will be on here tomorrow after a trip to the grocery store. it's supposed to be raining tomorrow, so that should be about as fun as a bag of flaming dicks.
that's all for me kids. 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...
