mom had a doctor's appointment today. all her numbers look good after they took her blood. after the appointment, we went to Perkins to finally use the coupon i got for my free birthday meal. and thankfully, the weather has been really good today.
my order from Walk Off Wax arrived today. i paid around $65 for the baseball cards. i think there was a little over $100 worth of cards in the boxes. i am very pleased with that.
Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.

i wrote 5 poems last night. i have been so completely uninspired these days in regards to my poetry. but, thankfully, the pen still works. i wrote what i believe to be 5 pretty good poems. i did a little work this morning until my back tapped out. i know where my next 16 poems are going. that will hopefully happen tomorrow or Saturday.
i got out this morning and filled the bird feeders. the weather is supposed to be pretty good the next couple of days.
the Yankees got an amazing game from Gerrit Cole last night. 8 innings pitched, 12 strikeouts, no walks and 4 hits. the Yankees won last night over Tampa, 1-0. that was the first series they have won against Tampa since god knows when. they go for the sweep tonight.

i counted 8 white women today that weren't wearing masks. the governor of this backwards state said today that the masks order will end in 3 weeks. but, as usual, if you are white in this state, you can get away with whatever the fuck you want.
the grocery store wasn't that crowded today. i was able to get everything on the list. didn't find any baseball cards anywhere. my order from Walk Off Wax should be here by the weekend.
NXT was excellent last night.

and by hate, i mean it curdles my fucking blood and drives me insane. so, you can imagine what i felt when Manchester United lost today, 2-1. i knew it was going to be a tough game, mostly because United had no choice but to change 10 players from the last lineup. they have a little game on Thursday against Liverpool. so, i figured Leicester was going to run the game for the most part. when United scored 5 minutes after Leicester scored, i was hoping i would be wrong. it was pretty even at the start of the second half and then United's manager forgot one of the most basic rules of the game. you never make fucking substitutions on a corner kick. he did and sure enough, there goes the second goal. now, in the grand scheme of things, i am pissed that this means Manchester City wins the title. of course, that was going to happen regardless. as long as United wins on Thursday, in the long run, the loss might be a good thing. mostly because it means Liverpool might not play any European football next season at all. that would be fucking glorious.

we got an inch of rain on Mother's Day. i thought mom held up pretty good but by the time the afternoon came around, you could tell her arthritis was really getting to her. and her and my sister just rub each other the wrong way anymore, so that was getting to her as well. add another frost warning last night and this weather isn't doing either of us any fucking favors.
the New York Yankees won yesterday over the Nationals, 3-2. two straight days of walk offs. they finished the homestand 7-2. now, they start a road trip tomorrow night in that dump down in Tampa.

i hope everyone has a great Mother's Day.
it is currently raining here and is going to do so all day long. not exactly the weather i hoped for on this day. but, as long as it doesn't flood, which is possible, i'll get by on some ice and my massage chair.
the New York Rangers actually gave a shit yesterday and defeated Boston, 5-4. i have a sneaky feeling that is going to be the coach's last game with the team. if so, at least he goes out a winner.

i just love when it's May and there is still a frost warning. the joys of climate change. it is either hot or cold, nothing else.
i did go through my poems last night. i need to do some more writing.
Smackdown and 205 Live were both really good last night.

today was one of those days where depression saddled right up to me and whispered into my ear. and as much as i tried to fight the temptation, i always give in. it's always interesting when you're in a store and you are looking for baseball cards while dreaming of your own death. good times. i didn't find any cards today. not surprising, not helpful either.
Manchester United lost yesterday 3-2 to Roma but advanced to the Europa League final on a 8-5 aggregate. they will face Villarreal in the final.

i completely forgot the Yankees play this afternoon, so i thought i should at least try to get the blog done early today.
so, the Rangers decided they were going to show some toughness last night, even though they aren't built that way. there was 6 fights in the game in the first 5 minutes or so. hats off to Brendan Smith for going after Tom Wilson. hats off to Buchnevich for a sneaky little slash on Wilson that i hope broke his fucking hand. the Rangers lost the game, 4-2. they play tonight at Boston, at least whoever doesn't get suspended from last night's game.

i was absolutely shocked at what the New York Rangers did today. they fired their general manager and team president because the owner, that delusional fuck James Dolan, thought the team should be in the playoffs this year. they are the youngest team in the league. my only guess is because the Knicks are doing well this season, he thinks the Rangers should be right there with them.

happy Star Wars day to everyone.
the New York Rangers lost to Washington last night, 6-3. i'm not pissed at the score, i'm pissed that the league didn't punish Tom Wilson for what he did to Buchnevich and Panarin. that piece of shit deserved way more than a $5,000 fine. so, when the two teams play tomorrow, i hope Wilson plays and i hope someone from the Rangers ends his fucking career.

the rain that started overnight and was still going this morning, was kicking my ass. i don't sleep well anymore when it is raining. as i tell my mom, we might need to move to the land of bent spoons. she is clueless that that is a heroin reference. thankfully, the rain eventually ended and we got a little sun today.
i went to the bank to deposit my check. of course, the lobby was closed for some fucking reason. so, there's 20 minutes of my life in the drive thru lane i will never get back. after that, i went to Big Lots to see if i could find some better storage for my cards. i did find that and 2 packs of 2019 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions. there was a couple good cards in the two packs i got. i went to Dollar Tree next door to see what they had. i found a Batman and Joker figurines that i didn't have. that was only $2. and then i had to go pick up mom's pills at Kroger.
so, the Manchester United game against Liverpool got postponed yesterday. i have no clue when or even if the game will be rescheduled. sadly, i doubt any of the protests will force the Glazers to sell the team. this is when i wish someone with an ungodly amount of fuck you money made them an offer they couldn't refuse for the team. but, that isn't going to happen.
