The IF Factor: Questions Answered #111-120

111. If you had to donate everything you own to a charity that you have never given to previously, which charity would you give to?

I would donate my belonging to a charity that shelter for families, especially those in loss. I would want my possessions to go towards giving a family a leg up in life, or a second shot at a normal one. 

112. If you could work for any person in the world, who would it be, and what job would you want? 

If I couldn't be a Hotel Resort critic (Pondering 10 - Jobs I Would Love to Have), is it weird to say that I would choose the job I currently have? I love what I do, and thoroughly enjoy it.
113. If you could discover one item that belonged to someone in history, whose would it be, and what would it be? 

I would discover part of Noah's boat from the flood. I think that would be really awesome to come across. 

114. If you could “uninvent” one thing in the world so that it would no longer exist, what would you choose? 

Reality television.

115. If you were to be executed tomorrow but could decide the method, how would you prefer to go?

What an awful question, right? I guess I would choose lethal injection. Electrocution and hanging just seem like too much suffering.  

116. If you could play any position on your favorite sports team, what would it be? 

Easy - closer for the New York Yankees. 

117. If you could have a year any place in the world, all expenses paid, where would you go? 

Sydney, Australia. 

118. If you could see only one movie ever again, what film would you choose?

I'm sure DP devotees know the answer to this - Friday Night Lights. 

119. If you had to choose the title of your autobiography, what would  it be?

How about "Dome Pondering, The Autobiography?" Too generic? Fine. How about, "Life Long Ponderer: The Autobiography of..." 

120. If you could have only one piece of furniture in your house, what would you want it to be?

A desk. Everything else - TV watching, relaxing, sleeping - can be done on the floor. However, sometimes, a desk is needed to simply write, eat, and think.

DP Review of the Alternate Knicks Orange Jersey

One of the good aspects about having a blog and being truthful and honest about it, is the hindsight thought process it provides. DP devotees already know how much I love my New York Knicks, and how excited I was about their new jerseys last year. It was a new look that was desperately needed ( DP Review On Knicks New Uniforms ).  In reviewing those jerseys last year, I had the following comments in regards to then-rumors regarding the addition of an alternative orange jersey for the Knicks and overall NBA changes to the Christmas Day special jerseys:  "As long as we do not add an "alternative jersey" (I read rumors of an orange one - woof!) (and the league-wide Spanish jerseys are fine). And please, please - PLEASE - let's finally do away with the awful green jerseys we feel the need to wear on Christmas and St. Patrick's day! Pretty please!"

Predictions and Wild Guesses for the 2024 MLB Season

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports After an off-season where the Los Angeles Dodgers spent the equivalent of a nation's GDP to acquire talent - I'm not sure if that's factual, but it felt like it - the 2024 MLB Season is finally here.  Sure, this Yankees fan is not just annoyed with the big spending of the Dodgers, but yeah, secretly envious as well. That used to be us, man!  Regardless, baseball is back on the docket. While my beloved New York Knicks have my attention and all of my heart, including what has been a fun March Madness period for men's and women's basketball, it's soothing to have baseball back. I can't explain what it is, but baseball just does that for me.  Nonetheless, let's do what we do in this post every year. Here are my wacky predictions and wild guesses for the 2024 season.  --- STANDINGS (WINS) AL EAST Orioles - 93 Yankees - 90 Blue Jays - 85 Red Sox - 82 Rays - 80 AL CENTRAL Twins - 88 Tigers - 86 Guardians - 81 Royals - 70 White Sox -
