365 Thought Provoking Questions. Answered: #82-97

82. Do you own your things or do your things own you?

Well, if you talk to my tag team partner, I'm sure she would say that my mobile phone owns me, more specifically, twitter. However, despite being connected to the world and its on goings, I'm not a complicated guy that is overly interested with gadgets, technical things, and/or various electronics. I love my car, my phone, my television screen, my PlayStation 2 (yes, I still play it), and my X-box 360. And I own these things. I understand they can be replaced, and I'm not completely attached. And oh yeah, I love my wife, too.

83. Would you rather lose all of your old memories or never be able to make new ones?

Never be able to make new ones. While the memories I have or will make in the future I'm sure can be great, I truly believe your childhood memories are the ones you hold dear to your heart. I have no idea what the future holds, but my childhood, which was awesome, can never be taken away at this point.

84. How do you deal with someone in a position of power who wants you to fail?

Take it. Bear it. Wear it. And turn haters into believers through hard work and determination. That's it. I've always been a person that responds to negative reinforcement, however it may be delivered.

85. What do you have that you cannot live without?


Awesomeness. Ha!

Truthfully, my faith.

86. When you close your eyes what do you see?


Okay, I really had to close my eyes to answer this. What I see is clear blue water, a bright sun, and lots of sand. Keep in mind I am writing this DP Post on a Friday afternoon from my office. 

87. What sustains you on a daily basis?

The thought of improving my life. Either you improve or you decline as an overall person, everyday. This is supported by the sub-thoughts of having new experiences, meeting new people, adapting, and reacting to this race called life.

Every morning, is a new canvas. 

88. What are your top five personal values?

In order:

1. Humility 2. Unselfishness/Generosity 3. Honesty 4. Integrity 5. Gratitude

89. Why must you love someone enough to let them go?

To see if its real. Whether it can endure the boundaries, hurdles, and hiccups that love truly overcomes. Also, sometimes if you truly love someone, you will know that their happiness sometimes may require leaving you.

90. Do you ever celebrate the green lights?

All the time. What's better than green lights all the way for a few blocks? A slice of awesomeness in life.

91. What personal prisons have you built out of fears?


Oh wow. This is a really good one. I guess my answer would be taking huge risks. A risk along the idea of being life-changing. I can adapt to change, but it really scares me. I've created a personal prison to keep things as much as the same as I can until a big change is needed. And when it is, you can rest asssure I will over-calculate it.

92. What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?

I would love to go to Fenway Park for a Yankees/Red Sox game. Simple, I know. But to me, that would be pretty sweet. And of course, the Yankees should win in my version of the trip.

93. Why are you, you?

Umm, because I am me?

Once again, I hate talking about myself. Maybe that's yet another personal prison. But what makes me, me, I guess are my natural birth limitations, my experiences, and the overall philosophy of keeping life simple than the complexity that we make it.

94. If you haven’t achieved it yet what do you have to lose?

I'd love to visit all 30 MLB ballparks and tour the world. What do I have to lose, everything in my bank account.

95. What three words would you use to describe the last three months of your life?


Once again, in order:

1. Change 2. Fast 3. Awesome.

96. Is it ever right to do the wrong thing?  Is it ever wrong to do the right thing?


Right and wrong will always be a cause for debate depending on moral and ethical levels and values. However, doing the right thing is never wrong, despite sometimes being unpopular. On the other end of the spectrum, the only time it is right to do the wrong thing is to protect someone from unlawful harm in anyway.

97. How would you describe ‘freedom’ in your own words?

Freedom is the ability to speak, think, believe, do, or react in any way that is not influenced by others, and that does not cause harm to another person's character, financial being, or overall well-being.

Freedom is a simplicity that is achieved without dependencies, and has a thoroughly searched truth for the way you form and live your life.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/29/22

3 Up 1. Five Memphis Officers Charged - It's a bittersweet "Up", but one of necessity. The five officers who brutally beat Tyre Nichols to death in what has been determined as a traffic stop filled with procedural violations and a hellacious video of their beating to go with it being charged is a step in the necessary direction.  2. City of Memphis - Kudos to the City of Memphis and their office for understanding the duty and responsibility of releasing the videos of the murder of Tyre Nichols. We've seen in various cases where these kinds of evidence are withheld - that office deserves credit.  3. Royal Rumble Event - On a much lighter note in the "Up" section - and in the world - is the Royal Rumble event this weekend. So much fun. Check out my thoughts and reviews here .  3 Down 1. Tyre Nichols Video - Just utter disbelief, and worthy of a shake my head. We need answers, justice, and of course, change. Some of my immediate thoughts on the video release t

Hard to Kill 2023 Review: "A Great Way to Kick Off 2023"

Impact Wrestling continues to be the most solid pro wrestling product - at least for this fan. Yes, there are some other exciting things going on in different companies, but for me, Impact does the most with the least, and that's a good thing.  As noted in some previous posts on Impact Wrestling, I was all about bringing in Bully Ray. I get the hesitancy because,  here we go with old stars taking up television time , but everything about the Bully and Josh Alexander storyline has been done well. It's been personal. It's a different look for Alexander. And it's a nice blend of history for the company with Bully returning, a nice mix of a veteran and your current top guy, and overall, something very different we've yet to see from Alexander as champion.  This is the case up and down the roster and the product for Impact. Add to this theory Mickie James vs. Jordynne Grace. And the tag team scene. And everything else. The company continues to rehabilitate older stars, l

Thoughts on the 2023 Baseball Hall of Fame Ballot

I honestly had zero interest in this year's Hall of Fame Ballot.  I know, I know...how dare I?  For me, the 2023 ballot wasn't as sexy or overly interesting. I really thought this would be another year in which no one got in. From the names on the ballot, the controversial ones like Alex Rodriguez and Gary Sheffield that we knew the outcomes for, and the lost hope for guys like Jeff Kent, I found myself feeling like the theme which now clouds Scott Rolen's 2023 selection - just a lot of VERY good guys.  There isn't anything wrong or disrespectful about that. A lot of the names are now those that resonate with me as I get older and can honestly decide on without extrapolating numbers from baseball references. Call it old school, or somewhat ignorant, but like many, I'm at the point of my life where my first evaluation is instant - did he feel like a Hall of Famer?  If the answer is yes, then it's settled. If the answer is no, I'll do my due diligence in look

Royal Rumble 2023 Review: "Absolute Drama. Wrestling at its Best"

Absolute drama. Wrestling at its best.  That's all I can say as the 2023 Royal Rumble premium live event went off the air. This is not some rare take or outlier perspective I'm going to offer. The wrestling was good. But damn, everything that is the Sami Zayn and The Bloodline storyline is why pro wrestling is the best form of entertainment there is. Yes, they've twisted and turned along the way, even in some areas where you thought this was going to be predictable, but the entire thing has been layered magnificently where it's honestly conceivable to understand anyone's perspective in the entire thing.  I've long thought Sami vs. Roman wouldn't headline Wrestlemania with the E opting instead to go with The Usos vs. Zayn and Owens, but I honestly at the posting of this, cannot state that's the best direction.  Although, while it may not be on the front burner (and it'll probably eventually get there), having Cody Rhodes vs. Roman Reigns where both of
