Of course Raul mothereffing Ibanez hit a game-tying homer just as the end of Mockingjay was making me cry. Of course that happened.
For the record, I love Raul, but he’s supposed to be atrocious in even numbered months. At least that’s the way it worked the past three years when he was on the Phillies. Plus, it’s physically impossible for me to root for the Yankees.
And of course he hit a walk-off homer as I was writing the second paragraph. Of course he did.
Oh, and to the Yankees fan I saw with the “Rahool” sign, it’s “Rauuuuulll.” Duh.
And the Reds lost. And the A’s are losing. This is just a bundle of suck. But maybe this is what I get for watching 10 hours of baseball and not doing the slightest thing to work on COMPS. Maybe.
Just a quick post with a couple of random things I found on the interwebs today:
- IUP’s men’s and women’s basketball teams were selected to their respective NCAA Division II Tournaments. Go Crimson Hawks! (Yes, I know that’s a dumb team name. It’s not my fault that the NCAA made them give up the team name they had when I was a student. I still think they should’ve gone with Squirrels or Jumpin’ Jimmies.) This year I found out about it before the tournament started, which is better than a couple of years ago when I stumbled upon the men’s team playing in the championship game on TV. (An IUP team on national television – it was weird.) And then they lost 😦
- It turns out that AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) is still a thing. Who knew? I saw an ad for it on Spotify this morning and had to check it out. I was kinda tempted to download it, but AIM will never be as awesome as it was when my college roommate and I would carry on two separate conversations, one spoken and one on AIM, while in the same room.
Okay, it’s past my bedtime (for reals).
