Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/15/13

3 Up

1. Reminder of Birmingham Church Bombing - On the anniversary of the notorious Birmingham Church Bombing from 1963, it is a clear reminder of how far we've come in race relations in this country, even during recent times where those relations seem to have been tested or have taken a step backward.

2. Jim Ross - The best play-by-play announcer in pro wrestling (in my opinion) officially retired from the WWE this week. One of the greats whose voice will be missed.

3. The Fox - I completely missed this viral video until the tag team partner showed this to me. She promised me it was worth it, and quite frankly it was. I'm sure you've seen it by now (Currently over 30 million views on YouTube), but if you haven't, give it a watch. Trust me, you'll laugh.

3 Down

1. Seaside Heights Fire - It's heartbreaking to see thirty-two businesses and a community that rebuilt itself in time for the summer season following Hurricane Sandy now destroyed again by a large fire.

2. Colorado Floods - It's been a week of unfortunate happenings for cities and areas. The floods out in Colorado have destroyed a lot of property and still have over five hundred people unaccounted for.

3. C.J. Ross - How any judge can look at that Mayweather/Canelo fight and rule it a draw is unbelievable. Ross should either be investigated for corruption or tested for drug use.

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!"
