Weekend recap

June 1, 2009

I spent the entire day in the city yesterday hanging out and drinking, so, needless to say, I’m effing exhausted and want to just go lay in bed all day today. But since I need a paycheck, here I am. Let’s get this over with ASAP.

1. The Penguins are sucking it hard with two losses to the Red Wings. Detroit now leads the series 2-0 and the penguins are left with a hope and a prayer. Crosby has been frustrated, both sexually and hockey-wise by the Red Wings, and he doesn’t know what to do. CGally has also been frustrated sexually and hockey-wise, but unlike Crosby, there is absolutely no chance that CGally is going to find his way out of the frustration anytime soon. Crosby at least has four games left.

2. The Magic have upended the Cavs to move onto the NBA Finals. Finally, there will be an end to all this LeBron/Kobe shit going on everywhere as well as the puppet nonsense on ESPN. Glad to see that the stupid analysts are so on top of things that they saw the Magic coming from the first round and predicted this upset as well as the last one against the Celtics. Oh wait, they didn’t because they are pretty much all former players who don’t belong in the booth. My b.

3. Rafael Nadal got ousted from the French Open for, like, the first time in the history of the French Open. Looks like this was the weekend for upsets.

4. Florida State played THE Ohio State University on Sunday in baseball. The final score was 37-6. The Seminoles were leading 35-0 in the fifth inning, and I think it’s safe to say that the Buckeyes won a moral victory by winning the last four innings 6-2. Too bad moral victories don’t mean jack squat, but hey, they take what they can get. Looks like the ACC is a powerhouse in another sport. Add that to… well we’re pretty good at football and basketball still. Powerhouse is an overrated term. On another note, BC lost 3-2 to Texas. What’s so special about that? The game lasted 25 innings. Two innings short of a three game series.

5. David Ortiz has been dropped down to 6th in the lineup for the first time since 2005. This has still not been helping him with his bat and at this point, a trip to the DL looks imminent if he can’t figure his shit out. Not really news that happened over the weekend, but I need an outlet.

6. In a display of pure athleticism, Janet (the Fiancee) finished her work for her Montessori teaching certificate this weekend and presented her projects like a champ on Sunday. She was dropping the competition like flies and is finally done with this damn class which sent her to Manhattan two Sundays a month at 6AM for the last year. In case you haven’t put two and two together, this is why we were drinking in the city yesterday. We went to Heidelberg on the upper east side, and if you ever make a trip to the City, I suggest you go there and get “Das Boot”. It’s real, the bubble actually does exist, and it’s a lot of beer. It’s totally worth it, too.
