The IF Factor: Questions Answered #231-240

231. If you could have any single option added to your automobile, what would it be?

Have you ever seen Knight Rider (the original version, not that crappy rehash with the Ford Mustang)? I would like the option to Turbo Boost, but Turbo Boost on steroids. Anytime I'm stuck in traffic, the ability to just jump over the entire darn thing. 

232. If you could have one new store added to your local mall, what would it be?

This is a tricky one. I really do most of my shopping from the comfort of my couch. I'm not a brand guy, or a picky shopper. If it fits, looks good, and affordable, I'm with it. I guess I'll go with any store that meets all three criteria consistently.


233. If you could have prevented the bombing of any single city during a war in this century, which would it be?

I feel awkward answering this because no city bombing is more important than the other. But since I'll stick to answering the question, I'd go with the recent Boston Marathon bombing. Only because it signified that our war on terror is so much greater than enemies overseas. There are those who share the same radical values among us. 

234. If you could have participated in any march on Washington, which would you have been a part of?

Washington D.C. Civil Rights March. Hearing Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech in person would have been awesome. 

235. If you could have a lifetime 50 percent discount in any single store at your local mall, which store would it be?

Another mall question?! Alright, I'll go with a weird one - Taco Bell. 

236. If you could have been present at any one ticker-tape parade, which would you choose?

1996 New York Yankees Championship parade. Mom didn't let me go. Made me go to school. Booooo! 

237. If you could have a copy of the New York Times from any single day in history, which would it be?

September 11th, 2001. 

238. If you could be given the complete film library of the work of a single actor, who would you pick?

Denzel Washington. He's one of those actors you know you're going to get a quality movie from. Even in his younger days, a film such as "For Queen and Country" was a decent. 

239. If you were invited to the White House for dinner tonight, what would you wear from your current wardrobe?

Suit and tie. Probably a tie of red and blue...or maybe just purple. Wouldn't want to be in "support" of any political party. Jees, when did politics become like gang awareness? This question took me back to thinking about what I was going to wear the next day in High School. Hmmm, not too much red, blue, yellow, grey, gold.etc. Probably why most of my wardrobe in high school consisted of sweatpants and a white t-shirt. Hey, I survived. 

240. If you had to choose the hour of day when times goes the slowest, what would you say?

Oh wow, eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeasily, the hour between 3:00pm and 4:00pm! I'm sure anyone that works during the day knows this. Cue the typical, "Do you get that three o' clock feeling" 5 Hour Energy commercial.

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
