The IF Factor: Questions Answered #211-220

211. If you could be the master chef in any restaurant in the world, where would you choose to cook?

I would probably be the chef at the White House. I couldn't think of a more dignified position to be a chef  than to prepare meals for the President of the United States. 

212. If you could ensure that your child has one experience that you have had yourself, what would you want it to be?

It would be to grow up in a diverse, multi-cultural, and passionate atmosphere such as New York City. Being able to relate and understand other cultures and other people is something I would want my child to be able to do and experience at a young age.

213. If you could have a free telephone line to any one person in the world, who would it be?

I hate double-ing up on the answers to these questions, but having an open line to President Obama would be pretty nice. "Hey Prez, what are we looking to get done here? Give me the goods in a few words." 

214. If you were stranded on a desert island and could have only one piece of music to listen to, what would it be?

I would probably go with something similar to a jam band. Something like O.A.R. as mostly everything else either comes with moods or certain quirks (I find it tough to listen to rap at night. Weird, I know...). 

215. If you could be any sports figure now alive, who would you want to be?

LeBron James. After all, who wouldn't want to be him right about now? The guy is on top of the world and dominates his sport. I'd love to play basketball and experience how it feels to be that physically superior than anyone else on the court. 

216. If you were to give one person you know an award for something, who would it be, and for what?

I would give my wife the award of Coupon Queen for always managing to maximize a discount on a purchase. I don't think I've ever met someone - anyone - saves as much as she does. Glad shes on my team. 

217. If you could become rich doing one thing that you currently don't do, what would you want it to be?

After thinking for awhile, this is really a tough question. Something I DON'T already do...hmmmm,

How about becoming rich for playing golf? I've never played golf. I find it utterly boring on television, and is one of the very few sports I absolutely cannot get into. But it is a lucrative sport, and quite frankly, it's easier on the body that the others are. 

218. If you were a machine, what machine would you be?

I'd be a traffic light. Weird, I know. But I'd be in a position of leadership. I'll be respected, despite a few reckless drivers. And I'll be around for awhile as traffic lights don't get outdated by new technology. 

219. If you could erase any one murder from history, which would it be?

The assassination of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King (DP Page of Famer!). One could only wonder what else Dr. King would have had in mind. 

220. If you had to change citizenship, which country would you want to become a citizen of?

England, Canada, or Bermuda. Most likely, England.

Dope Sports Threads - WNBA Signature Shoes (Stewart & Della Donne)

Signature sneakers for WNBA athletes? Ummm, yes, please!   This has been a long time coming. Since the debut of those signature Sheryl Swoopes from Nike , the market has not seen many women athletes given signature kicks, and more importantly, a platform for little girls and fans of the WNBA to emulate their favorite players and superstars - you know, the way we've always had it with our male athletes.  I want to live in a world where yes, little girls too can get excited about rockin' their favorite female basketball player's shoes. Shoes that are in their size...made for their feet.  Lately, we've seen a slow trend back into this space as the WNBA continues to gain popularity with a devoted following (like myself), but also as companies look to diversify their portfolio in a sports world that is ever-evolving.  I feel like Candace Parker helped revitalize that with the "Exhibit" line under Adidas. The design was endorsed, but not necessarily a signature shoe

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 8/14/22

3 Up 1. Little League Kid Hit in Head - If you haven't seen the video of the kid who was hit in the head by a wild pitch, and proceeds to first base, then to the pitcher's mound to console the opposing pitcher to was distraught over the action, then please do. Easily my favorite thing this week. And a stark reminder that there is good in the world.  2. Women Athletes Retire - Serena is hanging it up after the US Open. I saw it coming, but it's just tough to fathom when it becomes real. We'll have time to give Williams her flowers, but let's do so for Sylvia Fowles and Sue Bird - both legends in women's basketball who finished up remarkable careers today.  3. NEW CDC Guidelines - Okay, so most probably don't care about the CDC going forward. Has the pandemic officially been called off yet? Regardless, if the CDC is saying that quarantine (ah yes, that noble concept that once again feels as foreign as it was when it was introduced) is no longer needed, then we

Impact Wrestling Emergence 2022 Review: "...Just Solid - So Freakin' Solid."

It probably won't come as a shock to anyone who follows this blog that I will say the following statement: Impact Wrestling may just be the most consistently entertaining and fresh - very important adjective here! - wrestling product that I've engaged with over the past two years. It's just always there, as solid as it can be. No real highs, or lows that push me away as a fan - just good, consistent, thorough, solid pro wrestling enjoyment.  Now, make no mistake about it, over the past summer, I found myself a whopping thirteen weeks behind this solid product in favor of the still new (and intriguing) AEW product and my on-again-off-again hope in the WWE due to nostalgia. However, trusty-work-from-home days have allowed me to binge watch (and work, of course) and it certainly opened my eyes to a new experience when it came to wrestling. Removal from the episodic style habit, and the feel of episodes bridging together seamlessly.  Also, remove from the internet culture of we

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/19/22

3 Up 1. Father's Day and Juneteenth - A combined weekend of all-sort of celebrations, reflections, and appreciation. Sending gratitude and good vibes to all fathers, substitute fathers, step-in fathers, mentors, and figures who have helped shape the lives of many.  Also, take some time to reflect and think through the reflective day that is Juneteenth - new to so many - of the horrific start to our country's existence, and the freedom that came after a century of captivity.  2. Ashley Adirika - This is a dope story. It's the kind of story that is amazing and quite frankly, inspirational. Adirika, a Florida teen, graduates high school with offers from all Ivy schools and many more top institutions in the country. If that wasn't enough, Ashley also started her own non-profit organization to help mentorship for young women.  Unbelievably amazing.  3. Steph Curry - My dude was cooking! Steph continues to be one of my favorite athletes, and such a joy to watch. I was there
