The IF Factor: Questions Answered #271-280

271. If you were to be a news correspondent posted to any foreign country, where would you like to go?

Probably somewhere relaxing, tropical, friendly, and where nothing catastrophic ever happens. Caribbean. More specifically, St. Croix. 

272. If you had to choose a time in history when overall things were worse than any single time, when would you say it was?

The time of slavery in this country. Even the things we thought were good, weren't as best as they could be. Diversity makes everything better.

273. If you could take away the vocal chords of any person, who would it be?

Anyone with one of the following accents: Boston, Bajan, or Staten Island/Long Island. Really, you can pick any of these as an answer. I'd be alright if I never hear those again. 

274. If you you could be a guest on any television talk show, which would it be?

Centerstage on YES. 

275. If you could keep only one thing that is in your bathroom right now, as the only thing in there forever, what would you save?

Weird question. I'll go with a small cup I have from Madison Square Garden that doubles as water class/spit cup. It's retro, and probably the only thing I'd keep forever in my bathroom. 

276. If you could have prevented one event in history, what event would you eliminate?

Doubling up on my answer from #272, I'm going to go with slavery. 

277. If you had to rename your hometown, what would you call it?

I'm not sure how I could rename Brooklyn. The name is so cool as is. But I guess I would go with the officially county name of Brooklyn - Kings. It's fitting as it is the greatest place on earth. 

278. If you could teach your children only one lesson in life, what would it be?

Integrity for themselves and for others. 

279. If you had to be a member of another family you know, which family would you join?

The Royal Family. To be forever rich and have pretty authentic British accents would be awesome. 

280. If you had the chance to make one purchase that you have passed up in your lifetime, what would it be?

PlayStation 3. Bought an X-Box and missed out on several years of playing MLB The Show. Although , it might have worked out as I saved myelf plenty of unproductive hours in my life. 

No worries though as I'll be purchasing a PS4 next month.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/17/22

3 Up 1. Dr. King Weekend - I love this weekend, because, I'm just a big fan of Dr. King. Sure, this is the weekend of many who will ill-use his quotes, water down his message and purpose, and hold up his work in such a way to accommodate and support their message - at times, it's comical.  However, it's a weekend to be reminded, to reflect, and to celebrate his life. Don't ever forget, Dr. King was hated during his time. He was killed for fear of what he would bring to America. Let's not forget that as we reflect this weekend. 

WWE Day 1 Review: Back to the WWE Product

I immediately warn you, this review will be skewed. Why? Well, yours truly hasn't followed the WWE product since Summerslam. I just haven't been interested in any way through 2021, and finally, I stopped hanging on with the hope that the product will hook me. I just simply gave up. There is too much out there to wait.  RAW has been atrocious - I don't even skim through the DVR recordings anymore unless something pops up in the general wrestling news feed worth seeing. Smackdown will typically and occasionally get a fast-forward style of viewing (mainly due to having to see Roman Reigns' work), and NXT feels more and more like a product that is Triple-A baseball - it's okay, but I can spend time invested into other products.  So yeah, I've been out of the loop. And this review surely will reflect that. However, with a new year (and a lazy Saturday Night), I gave the WWE my time and interest. I wasn't disappointed. And this is good heading into the Royal Rumbl

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/9/21

3 Up 1. Justice for Ahmaud Arbery - It won't bring Ahmaud back. It won't right the wrong done. I'm not even sure if it provides solace for his loved ones. However, having those three men finish their lives in prison is the most that could have been done. Kudos to Judge Timothy Walmsley and the point he made by holding a minute of silence to prove it was just a fraction of how long they chased Arbery.  2. Sidney Poitier - I learned about Poitier through a film class in High School. To this day, I'm thankful for a teacher to recognize the greatness of black actors and the contributions of others to the entertainment industry. From "To Sir with Love" to "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", I adored his work, and him as a person. A life well-lived.
