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.

Exorcising Demons with a Breen "Double Bang!"

These sorts of moments feel like they don't happen to us.  Well, they happen VERY rarely - I'm talking Larry Johnson's 4-point play-rare. Yeah, it's been THAT long.  But watching this New York Knicks team score eight points in less than thirty-five seconds, including a sequence that will forever live in my fandom, sits right with that LJ garden-rocking shot.  I sat on my couch in absolute shock at what I just saw.  "How the hell did they just win that game?!"  It's the kind of moment this fanbase deserves. It's the moment that releases and exorcises some demons that haunt us from the trauma of experiences.  Namely you, Reggie Miller.  I loved it. And the icing on the cake was Mike Breen - Oh, Mike Breen, the loveable man with the most epic voice that has narrated so much of my basketball-loving fandom - with not one, but two signature "Bang!" calls.  I'll never let this one down. Ever.  I'm not sure where this team will wrap up the se

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/28/24

3 Up 1. DiVincenzo Shot - Yeah, I'm biased. And you know what, I don't care. This moment brought me so many jobs this week, and it still is. "Bang! Bang!"  2. Caitlin Clark Effect - Well, here we go. So many of the WNBA teams have begun moving their games against the Indiana Fever to larger arenas. The upcoming WNBA season is going to be so incredibly interesting. 3. Candace Parker - Rounding out a hoops-heavy "Up" this week is the retirement of Candace Parker. Yes, she drives the Knicks fanbase bonkers, but Parker is one of the greatest to ever lace them up. It's a shame she had to retire due to injury, but nonetheless, she should be proud. I personally will remember the 2021 WNBA Finals where she led her hometown Chicago Sky over the star-studded Phoenix Mercury.  3 Down 1. Campus Protests - I've witnessed them personally at NYU. And we are set to see these protests continue, and likely grow, on campuses over the next few weeks. We are likely to s
