The IF Factor: Questions Answered 281-290

280. If you could have been the producer of any single television show or series, which one would you pick?

I would say The Cosby Show as it is my favorite television show of all-time. However, I'll select my second favorite television show (not counting Monday Night Raw), in Friday Night Lights. I would have loved to work on that project. 

281. If you could own any single newspaper in the world, which one would you pick?

Not The New York Post, that's for sure. Although, does anyone buy newspapers anymore? It is a dying business. I'm going to go with a blog, and I'll go with the Huffington Post. 

282. If you could choose any six people to be the pallbearers at your funeral, who would you choose?

Same six guys who were groomsmen at my wedding, plus another friend who was unable to participate that day. He'd direct the six others. 

283. If you had to repeat your exact life over again exactly as it was, from any age, what age would you go back to?

Knowing exactly what I know now, I'll go with college. Interesting time for sure. 

284. If you could find one thing, besides money, in your family attic, what would you want to discover?

Nothing. My parents home doesn't have an attic. But that's semantics. I would love to find my old Nintendo 64 and the games I had for them. 

285. If you had to name the single most important quality of a good mate, what would it be?

Selflessness. 

286. If you had been the original designer of one existing corporate logo, which one would you select?

The Yankees' interlocking "NY". Classy, well recognized, and would bank me tons of royalties. 

287. If you could only wear one color, white or black, for the rest of your life, which would you choose?

Easily, black. One of my favorite colors. 

288. If you had to eat in only one restaurant for the rest of your life, which one would you choose?

Tops Diner in New Jersey. I'd be able to get any type of meal - breakfast, lunch, or dinner - from there, and it would be pretty good. 

289. If you had to be represented by an object in your home, what would you choose?

My laptop. All of my work, thoughts, blogging pieces, and interests are on there. 

290. If you had been the reporter to have broken one news event during your lifetime, what would you like it to have been?

It's hard to select "breaking" news that is positive, as most are usually negative in nature. However, I will go with being the first to have the news that President Obama had been elected as the 44th President of the United States. Pretty big news to be tied to.

Predictions and Wild Guesses for the 2021-22 NBA Season

For the first time in as long as I can remember, my New York Knicks have become a bit of a sanctuary for my sports fandom. Everything that has been the New York Yankees summer, and recent elimination, just begs for a proverbial turning of the page. The NBA season is that new chapter.  The Knicks season is a bit of a conundrum, as they've gotten much better, BUT, so did the rest of the Eastern Conference. I'm feeling confident, but I'm also anxious for more good basketball and hoping that last year wasn't some fluky gift to us Knicks for our patience prior to last season.  Whatevs...nonetheless, here are my predictions for the upcoming NBA season.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/24/21

3 Up 1. Science and Research - Look, I'm not trying to get into any debates or start trouble with this selection. I'm just giving props to the men and women who continue to develop these vaccines - and now approved booster shots - that help fight off this terrible virus that has plagued over the past 18 months. Some countries still don't have an option when it comes to vaccines - we're onto booster shots, and can "choose". Perspective and privilege are needed sometimes.  2. Col. Wang Yaping - Give it up to Yaping who in six weeks will become the first Chinese woman to walk in space. OF course, she is receiving tons of backlash from the media - but hey, did we expect anything else? 

CM Punk's Return - Perfect Timing for the Symbol of Anti-WWE

Looooooooook in my eyes, what do you see?! The lyrics to Cult of Personality, especially that first bar,  never felt so fitting for CM Punk as it did last night.  For the most part, everything that is CM Punk's return to wrestling last night at AEW Rampage ties directly into my latest thoughts on pro wrestling - the company is making it must-see destination television, an element desperately needed from pro wrestling.  Last night was incredible as again, it was another moment that made wrestling feel alive - with a wild and energetic pulse. It was one of the coolest moments in pro wrestling that you knew was coming, expected, anticipated, and it was everything and more. Again, MUST-SEE television. That's hard to do.  For me, it wasn't just Punk's return to pro wrestling, but the mere presence and voice of his inclusion in today's space. We know that Punk can deliver on the microphone - probably his best and most signature attribute. We also know that yes, he can

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/10/21

3 Up 1. Moderna Vaccine to Low Income Nations - In a world where the idea of "pandemic" now feels like a state of mind or the privilege of belief, Moderna has decided to aim its efforts in getting at least 1 billion doses to low-income countries the COVID vaccine. I'll save the "vaccine" chat for another time - but this is pretty awesome by Moderna. And oh yeah, highly needed.  2. Candace Parker and Diana Taurasi - Two absolute legends of the WNBA had some legacy-cementing moments this week. Parker lead her hometown Chicago Sky into the WNBA finals, and Taurasi, was named the GOAT of the WNBA by fans. Because well, she is. Congrats to both.  3. Netlfix's On My Block - For the second week in a row I'm putting a personal - and admittedly, biased - selection in the "Up" section. One of my favorite shows by Netflix, On My Block , released its fourth and final season, and yes, I binged it on my daily commute home. Gonna miss the crew from Freeridge.
