2012 DP All-Star Clash - 2nd Round (Hollywood and Star World Bracket)


Hollywood Bracket 

#4 Peyton Manning vs. #8 Cyborg

#4 Peyton Manning vs. #8 Christiane "Cyborg" Santos

After pulling off the upset on LeBron James, Cyborg heads into the second round against the ultimate winner, and face of the NFL in Peyton Manning. I'm not sure if Peyton Manning could indeed fight, but there is a part of me that has to believe Manning leaves any altercation or competition as a victor. Manning is the ultimate preparer and in this bout against Cyborg, he's used to dealing with over aggressive steroid-using individuals attempting to take him down.

Result: Eli's Big Bro

#3 Prince vs. #7 Sheldon Cooper

#3 Prince vs. #7 Sheldon Cooper

Can you imagine if these two actually met?

Sheldon: *knock-knock* Prince *knock-knock* Prince* Knock-knock*Prince

Prince: I never meant to cause you any pain...

Sheldon: I'm not sure what you are talking about.

Prince: This is what it sounds like, when doves cry!

Sheldon: I'm a physicist, and I can assure you that is not possible.

Prince: Purple Rain, Purple Rain!!!

Sheldon: What is wrong with you! It is just sad, the state of humanity.

Prince: One time...two time!

Sheldon: Stop, please stop!

Prince: We're gonna party like it's 1999!

Sheldon: Oooooooh! Did you somehow acquire a continuum time machine?

Prince: Yes, It's my little red corvette!

Sheldon: Oh, I know that one!

Prince: You do?!

Sheldon: You just fell for one of my classic practical jokes. Bazinga!

Result: Sheldon by way of surviving one of Prince's unbearing, never-ending, non-stop performances.

Star World Bracket

#4 Chris Brown vs. #8 Steven Seagal

#4 Chris Brown vs. #8 Steven Seagal

Well, let's just look at this match-up logically. You can't destroy Steven Seagal. Just look at any of his movies. The man escapes nuclear attacks. And as for Chris Brown, he's only tough when he can attack a woman. This one is pretty academic.

Result: Seagal moves on.

#2 Super Mario vs. #6 Pitbull

#2 Super Mario vs. #6 Pitbull

Probably the most intriguing of the second round match-ups. It is Mr. world-wide against Mr. Nintendo himself. While Mario is very popular, one can argue that his appeal amongst those who are adults is not as strong as Pitbull's. However, without mentioning the franchise that Super Mario is, even if we play to Pitbull's strength which is partying and a having a good time, Super Mario recently adapted and cornered that aspect as well. Nintendo Wii. Mario Party! Oh yeah, the plumber man is the true Mr. Worldwide, and he's in your living rooms everyday.

Result: Super Mario

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Hustle (2022)

What is it about? A long-time scout, Stanley Sugarman, grinds out the life of an NBA scout and the politics of the NBA by taking a chance on a prospect he believes in to change both of their lives.  Who is in it? Adam Sandler - Stanley Sugarman Juancho Hernangomez - Bo Cruz Queen Latifah - Teresa Sugarman Favorite Scene:   Kermit and Bo line up at center court and Kermit begins the trash talk to get inside of Bo's head, eventually taking him off his game.  Favorite Quote:   "I'll say one last inspirational thing to you: they can't kill you if you're already dead." Review:  Hustle sat on "My List" on my Netflix account for quite a long time. Parked on the couch in the middle of the night with a newborn, and jonesing for some hoops, I dove in on what I read (and heard from others) was a "really good film". I'll give away the suspense, I thought Hustle was decent. It felt too cliche and had little depth, but still, a really good film.  The
