Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/3/13

3 Up

1. New York City Marathon - After Hurricane suspending last year's race and the tragedy that was the Boston Marathon bombing, today's NYC marathon - the largest of it's kind at over 55,000 - was a huge success in helping many moving forward. 

2. Boston Red Sox - I hate to say it, but the Red Sox deserved their title win this year. Also, what the win meant to the city following the attacks of the Boston Marathon bombings can't be measured.

3. Nick Foles - Not exactly the quarterback you expect to be on the "Up" list, but throwing seven touchdowns in one game will definitely get you there. 

3 Down

1. LAX Shooting - Mass shootings continue to plague this country, and it's even more alarming how quickly we've dropped the once hot-button issue of gun-control and gun policies in our country. 

2. Insensitive (Idiotic) Halloween Costumes - Just when I thought this story should be on this list, a moronic woman figured it would be a good idea to be a Boston Marathon bombing victim for Halloween. 

3. Justin Beiber - I'm not even sure how he continues to be supported or dignified as an artist.

2024 NBA All-Star Weekend Thoughts

There's something wrong with the All-Star Game.  Yeah, we've definitely had this conversation before. Expect to pick up this very discussion (again) in July when Major League Baseball has their version in the "Mid-Summer Classic" when it is the ONLY current topic to bounce around in the stratosphere of sports discourse.  What's wrong with the All-Star Game?!  I'm not dismissing the obvious - yes, the NBA All-Star Game is very much at an alarming point of necessary refinement and change - evaluation is needed. What we saw on Sunday night was not disappointing, but outright embarrassing. Also yes, gone are the days when the game flooded your television screen at a respectable 6:30pm on NBC, and you were wowed by the athleticism and star power of the first half of the game, and treated to what felt like the world's best players playing pickup basketball on the grandest stage.  Now? Not so much. So yeah, we got the message. The outrage - and shock TV and hot t
