What a nightmare. I will spare most of the details from yesterday as I am trying to forget what happened. But I will just say that of all the crushing Rutgers losses I’ve ever seen, yesterday topped them all. This has been happening for years, and it seems like nothing is ever gonna change. Fuck Penn State and fuck Rutgers.
This morning, hungover and running on 3 hours of depressed sleep, still emotional from last night’s events, I made my Manalapan Men’s Softball League debut in a gritty doubleheader. We lost both games. And a 68-year old guy struck me out. Two times.
And last but not least, the Jets let a game slip away that was theirs. You can argue that the Packers made meaningful adjustments, and they did. Credit to them. You can argue that the Jets displayed a classic choke job, and they did. They got comfortable and conservative. The wheels fell off, and we paid the price. I’m also on the verge of losing all 3 fantasy leagues, again. I’m in panic mode over here.
So what’s worse? Losing to Penn State, being struck out twice by a guy who quite possibly invented the sport of softball, or the Jets falling short? Lemme know when you know. Fuck everything, this weekend is dead and buried.
Just a few more things. That 60 Minutes ticking noise makes me want to blow my brains out. My house is one million degrees and I don’t think the AC is working. I have laundry to do, but I don’t want to do it. I have 5 days of working and joyous commuting ahead of me this week. Send help.
