this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
The 2015 Copa America is in full swing, Chile having advanced over Uruguay last night in part because star Uruguayan player Edinson Cavani being shown a red card after responding to this awesome move by the Chilean defender Gonzalo Jara.
Jara has now been suspended, but it's too late for Uruguay who have now been eliminated. I guess this is Karma payback for all of the Luis Suarez biting incidents over the years from the Uruguayans.
I wound up in a Woodson(hallowed be his name) youtube wormhole and it was fun to see Grbac throw right at him as a rookie. I would of advised against, but I was 14 at the time. So when you get bored; youidk dial up some Denard, Brady, Walker, Roundtree, Perry, Edwards Killfest(comes with a free Spartan helmet), Tai Streets or Forcier ND or IU. Maybe a certain game idk, I watched the Illinois game of endless scoring the other day for no reason. Although I did follow it up with the Drew Henson OSU game, nice little night on the couch(ssshh don't tell her) I do believe the title on The Blade front page was Mich(again & again). GO BLUE.
So I thought nothing of True Detective Season 1 when it was announced. I mean Matt McConaughey was a rom com guy and Woody Harrleson hadn't done much serious before this. Then I watched; superbly acted, great score, cool theme and an amazing story with the two lead characters having vastly different yet great story arcs. Unlike anything that's been on TV for a while. The whole Carcosa and Yellow King stuff was way out there.
I enjoyed the first episode of the new season, it could go in a lot of different ways. if you haven't seen it yet, I would recommend it. Helps fill the Game of Thrones void.
I have high hopes.
For those who like such things, the northern lights are absolutely on fire right now up north. Though there is a fairly bright half moon which is washing out the colors somewhat, the lights are covering nearly the entire northern half of the sky and flashing across the entire expanse. If you live in a northern part of the state or country, go take a peek outside before turning in.
