Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/9/13

3 Up

1. College Baseball Super Regionals - For the second week in a row, this makes the top 3. And of course, it has a great deal to do with the fact that I am sick and pretty much relegated to mass amounts of television watching. Either way, thank you college baseball.

2. Tony Parker - That chaotic play of him driving, losing the ball, down to a knee, getting control of himself, peeking at the shot clock, pump faking LeBron James, then just releasing the game-clinching shot was riveting. Just riveting.

3. Yasiel Puig - His hot start has been awesome to watch. Still amazing how the Dodgers just can't win baseball games.

3 Down

1. Being Sick - Not just being sick, but being severely sick. There is nothing like being bed-ridden, fatigued, malnourished, in pain, and being taken away from your day-to-day activities.

2. The Jackson Family - Paris, what are you doing? And to the rest of the Jackson's fighting over Michael's money and tearing this child's life apart, what are YOU doing?

3. Healthcare System - There needs to be a refocus in philosophy on the doctor/patient relationship. I don't believe it's just the doctor's job to get you back to health, but it should be the doctor's responsibility to work with you on getting you back to health. Big difference.

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!"
