The IF Factor: Questions Answered #81-90

81. If you could enact one law in your country that does not currently exist, what would it be?

There would actually be quite a few. However, I would go with gun control. Nothing too elaborate, but the type of control that requires screening and effective security of allowing firearm usage in this country. 

82. If you could own only one thing for the rest of your life, what would you choose?

I would probably choose a good pair of pants. Weird? Yes, most definitely. But a good pair of pants sets the tone, and for a big and tall guy like myself, dictates the comfort for the day. As hard as pants are to find for us big guys, I'd like to own one pair, thus renting or borrowing everything else. If you happen to be one of those folks that has your perfect pants size in every store, you most likely won't understand this.

83. If you could be the current world champion in any one sport, which sport would it be?

Baseball, no doubt. It would be awesome to be part of a group that spent 8 months together towards one goal. And can you imagine catching the last out? 

84. If you could spend a weekend in any hotel in the world with all expenses paid, which hotel would you choose?

I'm not very up on my hotel knowledge, so I did what every other person does in 2012, I Googled "Best hotels in the world" and came across the Travel and Lesiure magazine website, and their yearly top 50 hotels in the world. #1 was a place in Tanzania. No interest. #2 was a hotel ranch in Montana, U.S. Even less interest. #3 was Southern Ocean Lounge on Kangaroo Island, Australia. Bingo. There is my answer. 

85. If you could cast an actor now alive to play you in a new film, what kind of film would it be and who would you choose?

Well, since Denzel and I are mere images of one another, obviously it would be him. 

No?

Seriously, I would select Kal Penn to probably play a younger D-Robo going through the college years. I think a movie about my senior year in college, and my senior year of baseball would be make for a decent thought provoking indie film. 

86. If you could have your portrait painted by any painter in history, to whom would you give the commission?

Michelangelo? Why not? He's a pretty good artist, and made for a key member of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. 

87. If you were given one hour to spend and unlimited amount of money in any store in the world, where would it be?

My first option would be a supermarket, but it really doesn't maximize the "unlimited" part of this deal.I would probably spend one hour in Best Buy purchasing all types of electronics. You know, the usual, televisions, tablets, sounds systems, video games and home appliances. 

88. If you could say one sentence to the leader of the country you are presently in, what would you say?

"These four years, not the first four, will define your legacy."

89. If you had to choose the best advertising campaign ever created, which one would it be?

Whatever campaign advertises bottled water. Even though I'm guilty of purchasing it, I still find it fascinating who ever came up with the idea of selling a product that is free to the buying public. The logic really defies any and all business plans and models. 

90. If you could have a song written about you, what musician would you want to compose it, who would perform it, and what would it be called?

It would be called "Ponderer", by Tina Turner.

CM Punk's Return - Perfect Timing for the Symbol of Anti-WWE

Looooooooook in my eyes, what do you see?! The lyrics to Cult of Personality, especially that first bar,  never felt so fitting for CM Punk as it did last night.  For the most part, everything that is CM Punk's return to wrestling last night at AEW Rampage ties directly into my latest thoughts on pro wrestling - the company is making it must-see destination television, an element desperately needed from pro wrestling.  Last night was incredible as again, it was another moment that made wrestling feel alive - with a wild and energetic pulse. It was one of the coolest moments in pro wrestling that you knew was coming, expected, anticipated, and it was everything and more. Again, MUST-SEE television. That's hard to do.  For me, it wasn't just Punk's return to pro wrestling, but the mere presence and voice of his inclusion in today's space. We know that Punk can deliver on the microphone - probably his best and most signature attribute. We also know that yes, he can

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/10/21

3 Up 1. Moderna Vaccine to Low Income Nations - In a world where the idea of "pandemic" now feels like a state of mind or the privilege of belief, Moderna has decided to aim its efforts in getting at least 1 billion doses to low-income countries the COVID vaccine. I'll save the "vaccine" chat for another time - but this is pretty awesome by Moderna. And oh yeah, highly needed.  2. Candace Parker and Diana Taurasi - Two absolute legends of the WNBA had some legacy-cementing moments this week. Parker lead her hometown Chicago Sky into the WNBA finals, and Taurasi, was named the GOAT of the WNBA by fans. Because well, she is. Congrats to both.  3. Netlfix's On My Block - For the second week in a row I'm putting a personal - and admittedly, biased - selection in the "Up" section. One of my favorite shows by Netflix, On My Block , released its fourth and final season, and yes, I binged it on my daily commute home. Gonna miss the crew from Freeridge.

Shoulda, Woulda - Ehhh: Thoughts on the Ending to the 2021 Yankees Season

I've waited to write this post. After all, it's been a tremendously emotional season...well, for the fan base that is.  For me, everything about this year's Yankees playoff run - or exit - was expected. This team, was as complex and complicated of a team as we've seen in a long time. Bad? No, I wouldn't say that. And I know that may trigger some in the fan base - but bad teams just don't make the playoffs in baseball. However, this team was incredibly flawed - to a glaring fault. Rooted deep, deep, deep in a philosophy that currently drives the organization and has now proven to be fruitless - and even more so year after year.  So no, I never expected this team to do much other than possibly surprise me with a deep playoff run. We've seen glimpses of this team's conflicting identity by running the bases, moving runners, getting timely hits, and looking somewhat threatening to the rest of the league. And yet, we've seen this team play terrible defense

The Pondering 10 - Yankees Fandom Annoyance

I'm a New York Yankees fan. If you haven't gotten that already from this blog, then the surprise declaration gives you a small set up for this latest Pondering 10 post. Yes, the Yankees are having a challenging year, and there are so many discussions and breakdowns that can be had that are productive, beneficial, and enlightening to why this season is unfolding the way it is.  You know what is not helpful? Yankee fans antics. Ironic, huh? I've long since realized that I'm associated with this fan base than can be overbearing and at times, super annoying. However, none more so than this year. Listening to sports radio, Yankees Twitter, and talking-head television has made that more clear than ever before.  With that said, here is my Pondering 10 on my Yankees Fandom Annoyance:
