The IF Factor: Questions Answered #171-180

171. If you could go back in time, as yourself, to live for one year at any point in history, what year would you choose, and where would you go?

I would love to go back to Junior High School as I had a lot of fun and had many memories there. However, for the sake of redemption and a clear do-over, I will select my senior year of college. I would love to have that year over, and possibly handle a few things differently. And heck, maybe even blog throughout it. 

172. If you were to receive a letter today from anyone you have known during your lifetime, who would it be from and what would it say?

From my brother. It would say, "sorry (to me and my family), I was a total idiot".

173. If you could have received a telegram from one famous person now alive, who would it be from, and what would it say?

Mariano Rivera. It would say, "Dear friend and my biggest fan, please come down to Panama with me, and I will show you how to throw the cutter."

174. If you were to be successful in another profession, what would you want to do?

Ohh, probably something in the communications field. But I love athletics, events, and recreation. No change planned in the future. 

175. If you had to spend all of your vacations for the rest of your life in the same place, where would you go?

Tough one. Probably, St. Lucia. 

176. If you won a lottery, what is the first thing you would do?

I would buy my parents a house. 

177. If you could be a member of any club or association in the world, what would it be?

I've always been a loner. I'm not sure there is a club or association I'm dying to be a part of. Maybe, I'd help volunteer for the Boys and Girls Club of America. 

178. If you were given $5,000 to spend in one store in the world, where would you do your shopping?

Best Buy. Hello 80" television. 

179. If you were to perform in the circus, what would you do?

Coordinate each event. I'm definitely not circus talent material. 

180. If you could master one type of cuisine, which one would you choose?

I would say Mexican, because it's my favorite, but I'd go with Italian because it sounds impressive.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/22/22

3 Up 1. NY Times Investigative Series on Haiti - The history of Haiti is such a complex (and unfortunate) one. Really, it's a story that goes untold, specifically for the context of how the country is viewed. From being forced to pay operations to enslavers (yeah, you read that right), to so many other historical setbacks - including American interventions - the nation's history is so well laid out in this latest NY Times piece. I urge you to give it a read.  2. Equal Pay for US Women's Soccer Team - Kudos to US Soccer on coming around to giving the USWNT their due - equal pay for prize money from the World Cup. It's a start, and more importantly, it's a push forward for women's sports that do in fact push the needle in comparison, or more so, to their male counterparts.  3. Kate McKinnon - Random "UP" here, but I'm doing it anyway...A few SNL usuals are rumored to be walking away, including Kate McKinnon. The show obviously doesn't carry the

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/10/22

3 Up 1. Ketanji Brown Jackson - The new Supreme Court Justice is a win for black and brown girls everywhere. Representation matters.  2. Women's College Basketball Ratings - I'm giving the women's tournament its due as it garnered the highest television ratings ever for the national championship game in eighteen years. And that was head-to-head with the Grammys! Spare me the "women's sports don't draw" tired narrative. Invest in women's sports, period.  3. Baseball Returns - Sure, the sport bothered fans over the winter with its ugly and insulting labor spat. However, it's back, and that's cool.  3 Down 1. Ukraine Images - Unfortunately, I had to put the ongoing acts in Ukraine back in the tops spot. Have you seen some of the images coming out of the country? For me, it was the image of parents writing children's information (i.e. names, details of eating habits, etc...) on their backs - on their backs! - in anticipation of being separated

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Amateur (2018)

What is it about? The recruiting and exploitation of a teenage basketball phenom expose the immoral undercurrent world of amateur sports and business.  Who is in it?  Michael Rainey Jr. - Terron Forte Jr.  Brian White - Vince Josh Charles - Coach Gaines

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/27/22

3 Up 1. Volodymyr Zelensky - The President of Ukraine delivered a speech this week that certainly went viral not just for his take as the current war on Ukraine ensues, but for his honesty and courage throughout it.  2. Kentaji Brown Jackson - In a world on fire, here at home President Biden nominated Jackson, who becomes the first black woman to serve on the highest court in the nation. That's so cool. I'm happier for the tons of little girls of color who can dream of being a Supreme Court Judge, and now believe it.
