The IF Factor: Questions Answered #251-260

251. If you were to invent an award to give to one commercial company, which one would you award, and for what? 

As of this moment, I would give an "Employee Empowerment" award to Google. No not because they host this very blog, but because of how they treat and take care of their employees. I've had the opportunity in my career to work with those who are employed by Google and all of the rumors and hearsay is true - they do have fun and are super productive! Kudos to Google on finding the balance of employee happiness, innovation, and productivity.

252. If you could resolve any single dispute, anywhere in the world, what would you solve?

I would solve race relations here in America. Since the slave trade, our country has been struggling to see one another beyond the color of our skin and the different ways we look.


 253. If you could be a contestant on any game show, which would you like to be on?

Easy. Jeopardy. DP devotees would know, I've been a huge Jeopardy fan since I was eight. Yeah, I know, it's the nerd in me. 
254. If you could read the mind of anyone you know, who would it be?

My wife. It would make things a lot easier. I'm sure all married men echo my answer as well. 
255. If you could read the mind of someone famous, who would it be?

Lady Gaga. Amanda Bynes. Dennis Rodman. Kanye West. Pick any one of the four. I would just love to know what runs through their minds before they do the things that, you know, that only they do.
256. If you could dance any one dance perfectly, which dance would you choose?

Could someone teach me to Dougie? Just kidding. Break dancing. Just because its cool. Plus, you either seem like the "cool" guy at the party, or simply just the random guy break dancing to slow music. Either way, it's a win. 
257. If you could be the editor of any single magazine, what publication would you pick?

Men's Health Magazine. 
258. If you were elected leader of the United States tomorrow, what would be your first act?

Reform Education. Isn't it funny how this topic is always on the lips of every politician come election season, yet you never hear it in the years between. 
259. If you could eliminate one thing you do each day in the bathroom so that you never had to do it again, what would it be?

Clean the bathtub/shower is my immediate answer. However, because I don't do that everyday, I'll have to find something else. And if you do, then you're just sick.

I would go with flossing. It's annoying to stand there and go through every tooth, but it has to get done. Would be nice to simply have my teeth magically flossed before bed. 
260. If you could only hear one voice that you are familiar with for the rest of your life from the mouth of all people, whose would it be? 

 Either Bob Sheppard or Bruce Buffer. DP devotees knew the second was coming. I'll go with Sheppard, for the sole reason that Buffer's constant energy would tire me out.

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
