Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/5/13

3 Up

1. New Year, New Hope - I'm a big fan of New Years Eve. As you can tell by the DP's biggest post of the year being the Year in Review post (2013 Dome Pondering Year in Review), I like looking back on the year, reflecting on all that it offered, and looking forward to another blessed year. 

2. Indianapolis Colts - It's very easy to give up in life, especially in sports. Even more so in football when you are down twenty-eight at halftime. But Indy didn't, and they pulled of one quite the comeback in one of the most fun football games I've ever watched. 

3. The Goldbergs - With plenty of time around the apartment over the past two days due to frigid weather, I decided to take a chance and try a new show. Not very like me. Yet, I'm glad I did as the Goldbergs is insanely hilarious, and reminds me of a comedic version of one of my favorite shoes ever in The Wonder Years. Give it a try as well. 

3 Down

1. Alabama Mom - This is what is wrong with our Society today. Parents acting like this. Unbelievable. 

2. Cold Weather - I hate winter as is, yet this week we've gotten snow, frigid cold, icy conditions, and any other annoying winter-ish weather possible here in the Northeast. I wish I never left Barbados.

3. JR Smith - Seriously, dude? With seventeen seconds on the clock, a tied game in the fourth quarter, and your team in possession of the ball you hoist up an immediate three-point shot? C'mon man. Seriously, c'mon.

WWE Survivor Series 2023 Review: "Whaddya Wanna Talk About?"

Well, following that premium live event, in the words of Cody Rhodes... "whaddya wanna talk about?"  The obvious is there, right? CM Punk, somehow, makes a bid for another moment-of-the-year candidate for wrestling fans with another "return" - his second over the last four years. This one, back to the WWE, in what felt like the most improbable of opportunities. But as we've learned, WWE truly is where you "never say never".  You can go in so many directions on this one. But without going too far down a road that hasn't developed or we have some headlights on, it's quite clear that WWE is absolutely crushing the wrestling business right now, and adding anything - or anyone - to that continued record success is the mission. They. Are. Not. Settled.  Second, the unveil I thought was great. Just absolute pro wrestling at its peak. As soon as the guitar riff to "Cult of Personality" hit and the familiar graphics hit the screens, my immedia

Quick Ponder: Gratitude

  My sense of gratitude explodes within my heart when I cease expressing it through the tangible, but rather through, time and moments.  Happy Thanksgiving, all. 

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/26/23

3 Up 1. Hostages Released - It might not be an overwhelming consensus - as this topic is so polarizing that I doubt we come to such agreements. Regardless, having innocent individuals released is a plus in the situation. I wish we still didn't have innocent people dying, but that's a whole other topic.  1a. Cease Fire - Who knows how long this will last. But the fact there is an agreement in place while hostages are being released is a plus. Take it.  2. Thanksgiving - The older I get, the more this day has a deeper focus and a sense of gratitude. Please take a moment today to focus on that among all of the chaos of food, family, friends, and everything else.  3. CM Punk Return - How cool was that? CM Punk returns to the WWE at the Survivor Series. Never say never in that company.  3 Down 1. NBA Ethics Optics - From Miles Bridges to Josh Giddey, its been really difficult lately to trust the NBA's moral compass. I'm not throwing them under the bus as they've done the
