The IF Factor: Questions Answered #261-270

261. If you could serve in one capacity in the military (in which you haven't already served), what would you want to do?

Well, obviously, I've never served in the military. However, I would want to do something close to my career now, and that is work in logistics. Whether it is scheduling, planning, or project management, I'd love to serve my country by using my experience and attributes towards those aspects. 

262. If you could eliminate forevermore one cause of death on earth, what would it be?

Hunger. That's such a brutal way to die. Especially, when the resources are there throughout the world unlike other terrible diseases or ailments.
 
 263. If you have had to choose the best book in history, which book would get the prize?

For me, easily, The Bible.

264. If you could cure any disease, which would it be?

Cancer. For the sole reason that it just happens. There is no rhyme or reason for why it occurs in certain people, no matter how many studies we do.
 
265. If you could be the owner of any current team in professional sports, which one would you want?

I want to say the New York Yankees, because they are my favorite sports team, and well, they are worth quite a bit. However, I'll go with my second fave, the New York Knicks. Knicks management has been brutal, and I'd love to own them and hopefully fix the notorious image their front office has.

266. If you could eliminate one odor from the earth, which one would you get rid of?

Bad body odor. Nothing like the being next to someone on the subway who hasn't showered in days.

267. If you were to select a food that best describes your character, what food would it be?

Hamburger. Simple to make, is adaptable with tons of variations and specifics, and is rarely ever a bad idea for a meal.
268. If you could arrange a jam session with any three musicians in history, who would you include? 

 This is a good one. I'll go with this grouping:

1. Jimmy Cliff
2. O.A.R.
3. Jimmy Hendrix

269. If you could invent one new home appliance, what would it do?

A tea maker. There is a coffee make for folks who drink coffee. They can just pour, and boom, they have a drink in hand. Would be nice to have a machine that makes tea for you.

270. If you were to be someone's personal computer, whose would you like to be?

I'd love to be the personal computer of someone creative. Probably, an author, or columnist of some sort. I'll go with Mike Lupica because I enjoy his work.

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
