4/22 Dark Evening Update: Reds, Flying Pig Marathon, NBA Playoffs


Well, today was definitely better than yesterday, that’s why you see the title of this evening updated of just “dark” not “dark dark”, because last night it was a bad night for my sports teams and my exams were I’m going to keep it G-rated “poop.”

Today, I just studied all day, in the middle went out for a run in this beautiful 70 degree weather we had today in Cincinnati. Also, I had skyline as well, man that was some dope cheese.

Alright let’s recap a good night for our beloved redlegs.

Cincinnati Reds: After losing the first game of a four game series to the Pittsburgh Pirates last night in the Steel City, 6-5 on a Neil Walker walk off hit, the Reds look to bounce back tonight and man the “ACE” of the staff turned out another complete game against these same Pirates and that guy was Johnny Cueto.

Cueto went the distance, allowing one run, three hits, three walks and eight strikeouts on 117 pitches, 10 more he had in his last start, which was against Pittsburgh, where he went the distance, had a complete game shutout with 12 strikeouts. There were no score until the Reds struck for two in the seventh, one in the eighth, and one more in the ninth, where Johnny picked up a RBI single to cap off his stellar night.

Final score was 4-1 Cincinnati, two teams back at it for game 3 of the series tomorrow night, first pitch is at 7:05pm. This is the Cueto we need all season, and so it’s been a damn joy to watch him pitch.

Flying Pig Marathon: So, I’m about to run my first ever marathon in 12 freaking days, oh gosh. It just seems like yesterday, I just started training for it, which it began in mid December.

My legs are about to fall and my body is telling, just stop running! The weather elements I had to endure during my training was the worst; snow, sleet, negative temps, wind, etc. But, with Spring here, the runs have gotten so peacefully and less painful.

May 4th, 6:30am, it’s about to go down, my goal time is around 3:25:3:30.

NBA Playoffs: The Indiana Pacers were facing animist pressure tonight, because they lost game 1 to the 8th seed in the East, the Atlanta Hawks, and with them being the number one seed in the east, you lose tonight, all hell will break lose in Indianapolis. Thankfully for the Pacers, it didn’t happen. They looked like the team from the beginning of the season, as they took it to Atlanta in Game 2, by a final score of 101-85, series tied at one as the scene shifts to Atlanta for Games 3 and 4.

The Toronto Raptors rebounded tonight and defeat the Brooklyn Nets 100-95, and with that even up their best of seven series match up with the Nets at one.

Right now, the Washington Wizards and Chicago Bulls are playing game 2 of their series, with the Wizards up 1-0 in the matchup.

Video of the night is more comedy, this time is from one of the funniest person ever in the game:
