Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/21/13

3 Up

1. Any and all officials involved in the Boston Marathon Situation - Boston PD. Massachusetts State Police, Watertown, MA Police, FBI, SWAT teams, U.S. Coast Guard - everyone! Just awesome work.

2. City of Boston - You've been through so much over the past five days. Way to stay strong.

3. Sean Collier - The MIT Officer who died during this entire situation. Died in the line of duty keeping those students and that campus safe from those two spawns of evil.

3 Down

1. Terrorism (anywhere)

2. Active Terrorist Cells - The idea that terrorism is still an active pursuit for many is frustrating. Silly us thought this would be over with Bin Laden's death.

3. Gun Control Bill Voted Down - The idea that so many voted down the proposed bill for background checks to help gun control is alarming and ridiculous. Lobbying and corruption at it's finest. How do some in Washington sleep at night?

WWE Wrestlemania XL Review: "I absolutely loved this Wrestlemania"

It's easy to get caught up and become a prisoner of the moment. Especially in today's world where the latest moment is ostracized, super-analyzed, and hyperbolized - it's very much the clickbait, social media, microwave society we live in.  Yet, even after acknowledging that (as well as my Tribal Chief, of course), I still come to this feeling that Wrestlemania XL is one of the best Wrestlemania's, ever.  Yes, ever!  I don't need Triple H's metrics and benchmarks to influence me. No, no, no! In terms of hype, storylines, payoffs, match quality, and just overall fun - this entire weekend was amazing.  I'm slightly skewed in my preference as well. This was my son's first Wrestlemania as a pro wrestling fan. Having him at my side cheering on his favorites, getting caught up in the drama, and even crying at the end of the night because his Tribal Chief lost to "that no good Cody" added to the overall appreciation of the event.  So yeah, I have some

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!"
