Today

My sister took the picture before I headed out today. I got in a few hours of hunting. It was pretty windy, and a bit cold. But it’s better when it’s cold. If you shoot a deer on a warm day, it might rot before you can get it butchered.

I really wanted to use my regular compound bow this year. I didn’t use it much in the past because the ceiling in my shack was low and the top of the bow would hit the ceiling. The ceiling of my tower’s blind is plenty high enough for a regular bow, and I might have used it. But I did something to my left elbow a couple months ago. It hurts when I draw back the string on the regular bow and I can’t hold itĀ for long.

So, it’s the crossbow again.

I’m starting to think I’m going to need surgery to fix whatever’s wrong with my elbow. Think I tore something.

The Pistons beat the Cavs. They played on the Michigan State court today, not sure why. I have Game 1 of the Dodger-Brewer NLCS on. Top of the 6th, LAD 1- MIL 5.

I’d kill for some tacos right now.

NBA Preseason

The Pistons didn’t win, but it was a good game.

You know, I can’t seem to watch a basketball game without thinking about something a lot of people say, “Basketball is a terrible sport because it’s too easy to score.”

I think these people are missing the point. The game isn’t how hard it is to score, the game is who can score the most. I happen to think basketball is a wonderful sport. It’s a sport that keeps you moving. Players don’t get much time to rest.

You get a lot of exercise playing basketball and you likely have very good reflexes. It’s a game that I was never good at, but it looks like a lot of fun for those who play it.

MLB Postseason

The Red Sox just beat the Yankees and won the ALDS. They’ll face Justin Verlander & the Astros in the ALCS. On the National League, the Dodgers and the Brewers will face each other in the NLCS.

I’m still rooting for Houston. As long as they have Verlander, they’re my backup team.

Hunting & Sports

I ordered my deer license today, a buck tag and a doe tag. My dad and I started putting my hunting tower together. We’ll probably finish it tomorrow. Got home in time to see Michigan beat Northwestern. I have the Tiger-Brewer game on. Top of the 6th, 5-5. Tomorrow is the Tigers’ last game of the season.

Justin Verlander & the Astros will be in the playoffs. I’ll be rooting for them.

Cleaning

Just finished cleaning the bedroom. Been at it all morning. And I decided to rearrange the furniture. Now the bed and the bedside table are on the other side of the room, and the dresser is turned another way. The room seems to have more space this way.

Now I’m having a beer. The Tigers start at 1. I’ll probably be cleaning the kitchen and watching the game during breaks.

P.S.
I just became a great uncle today.
