[center]Ladies and Gentlemen, a huge rarity is occurring tonight. Instead of spending another pathetic night of my life trolling on the internet, I'll actually be glued to my television!

For anyone who knows me, I HATE TV. I never watch it. I think the last primetime sitcom I've watched was The Simpsons like 5 years ago. Except for tennis, I don't want anything.

But tonight, is a special night.

First, not just one of my former colleges, but TWO are playing in conference tournies tonight.

UB (where I spent about a month at :p) plays some scrub team in the 1st round of the MAC tourney. I assume UB is gonna win that rather easily. Infact, I'm not even sure if we're getting it televised. Then, probably blow it in the QF's in Cleveland against some good team. But, meh. UB isn't supposed to win anyway! We're the top D1 scrub team in the land! We're a college known for having drunken parties!

Then, NIAGARA plays in the MAAC final, and is actually the favorite! I actually completed a few early courses there, and LOVED it. I just couldn't afford to go there for a degree, even with the scholarships I had. Infact, if I felt like going for my Bachelor's... Niagara is the place I'd go.

Anyway, they play Rider or something in the final... and BETTER NOT FUCKING BLOW IT. They beat Iona in the Sf, who was probably playing the best ball coming into the tourney, so the Purple Eagles should win. Just like Canisius should have won a few years ago against Fairfield. Sigh.

What's with the faggy names for the college teams here anyway? Purple Eagles? Golden Griffins? And the worst... the Bonnies? Gah. Whatever, though.

It's extremely rare that any local Western New York teams make the tourney. The only team in my lifetime was St. Bonaventure making it a few years ago, and fucking choking against Kentucky in the 1st round. OMG, I broke so much shit when they lost that game. Also, Canisius made it like 10 years ago, and got annihilated by Utah.

Even if Niagara makes it... they haven't had the best season. Probably looking at a 14 or 15 seed, and getting destroyed by Duke by about 50... but, that doesn't matter. Just having a hometown team in the tourney is so much fun. I wish college bball had some good teams here. It's such a blast.

Then... it's the season premiere of Cheap Seats. Cheap Seats is like Mystery Theatre 3000 whatever, but has to do with sports. Any show where people make fun of everything is my kind of show. I hope it doesn't suck. It's the only show I still watch occasionally.

Oh, and I already got accepted for my new job as a "Technical Assistant". I start next Monday. The competition was very stiff... since they didn't even interview me. They didn't even talk to me on the phone. I got an e-mail saying I have the job. Well, that works for me. Cushy jobs own. And it's a county job. Thus, uber-cush.

Well, that's all. I'm probably gonna play a little tennis, then do whatever.

I'm actually in a great mood today. I'm scared.

So much love for Croatia right now. Totally loving the Plumbers... they kind of rock my world. I don't even feel like a bad American anymore. I know I'm a bad American. I hate my government and our tennis players. It's not my fault.... look at them!

I hope my Spanish boys do well at Indian Wells. Can Juan Carlos please just win two matches in a row? It's a crazy idea, I know.

My midterm today went alright. Art is fairly easy anyways. I love art. I wish I...

I'm finally here, but I'm having so much trouble with my computer, I can hardly get on the internet at all. Someone is coming tomorrow to look at it.

It was so COLD here Friday when I got in and yesterday it drizzled almost all day long. But still, it was just gorgeous. I've never seen the desert down here so very green. Even the small hogback mountains, usually austerely brown, are covered in green. Yesterday, with the overcast skies and white clouds curled playfully around...

Well, what can I say?! How disappointed can you be?! WTF happened in Slovakia?! I blame that stupid court!!! I'm so they lost!!! Here I was thinking the Dutch would F*** up...but no.... I was wrong!

One positive "thing" is Fernando! Looking at the scores, I think he did best under the circumstances! BRAVO CARIÑO! At least he ditched the donut for Spain!
