Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/28/13

3 Up

1. The NBA Playoffs - How can any basketball fan call March Madness "the best time" of the year?

2. Travis Hafner - The slugger has really fit in with the Yankees coming up clutch. Even legging out a triple - yes, a triple! - this week.

3. Warm weather weekends. Once my weekends aren't spent working...I'll be able to enjoy them again.

3 Down

1. Mother of Brother-Suspects in Boston Marathon Bombing - How can any mother have their child risk their lives for such an extreme cause?

2. Sports Talking Heads - Usually it's specific people in the sports world that do this, how anyone can really make sound and credible statements about the NFL Draft is asinine. No one has seen these players play enough to warrant judgement.

3. Working 37 hours in three days with a combined 11 hours of sleep is not cool. But in the end, is quite the professional self-rewarding feat. I just can't wait until the Summer.

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!"

Quick Ponder: Daily Armor

Imagine, if we can see the dents and scratches, the smashes and chaos,  on the daily armor, each of us put on. Just imagine. 

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 -
