The IF Factor: Questions Answered: #321-330

321. If you could have been the person who discovered any country in history, which country would you like to have been the first to find?

Discovering the United States would have been nice, but we all know the really story on that one, and if you didn't know, people where here first. Still amazing Columbus has a national holiday dedicated to him.

However, I'm going to go with all of the Caribbean islands. All of them, because I'm being greedy on my imaginary exploration legacy. It would be nice to have been the one to have discovered them. Can you imagine getting off a boat from Europe and seeing warm weather and those beaches? 

322. If you had to cancel one hour of the day, every day, which hour would you eliminate?

The hour of 3:00pm to 4:00pm. It just drags at work, and always feels like the longest hour of the day.

323. If you could go back in time, as yourself, to observe any single event from your life, and from history, what would you want to witness?

There is a moment playing college baseball where I came in without any bullpen warm ups; game in danger of us blowing a huge lead; bases loaded; no one out; top of the order coming up; and of course, on the road in Purchase, NY, that is always truly special to me. I ended up getting out of the inning and the jam with two strikeouts and a pop out to close the game. For at least one day in my life I got to feel like my guy, Mariano Rivera.

As for history, I would have LOVED to be present for the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. 

324. If you were to choose a musical instrument that best describes your character, what would it be?

Guitar. Simple. Creative. Laid back. 

325. If you had to cancel one month of the year forevermore, so that period of time no longer existed, which month would go?

March. Talk about a dreadful period. Waiting for summer. Waiting for baseball to really begin. Waiting for NBA games to become playoff games. And just being tired of winter. 

326. If you could do any job in the world for one day, what would it be?

PA announcer for a basketball game. 

327. If you had to choose the best television show ever made, which one would you pick?

My favorite television show of all-time - The Cosby Show

328. If you could have been any sports figure from history, who would you want to have been?

Michael Jordan. I would just love the feeling of being better than everyone else, and knowing it. 

329. If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?

Being able to see my family more. 

330. If you had to choose the prize for the best movie in history, what film would win?

That's EXTREMELY tough. My favorite movie is Friday Night Lights, but I wouldn't call it the best movie in history. I'll probably go with Schindler's List off the top of my head, right now, as of this writing.

Impact Wrestling Emergence 2022 Review: "...Just Solid - So Freakin' Solid."

It probably won't come as a shock to anyone who follows this blog that I will say the following statement: Impact Wrestling may just be the most consistently entertaining and fresh - very important adjective here! - wrestling product that I've engaged with over the past two years. It's just always there, as solid as it can be. No real highs, or lows that push me away as a fan - just good, consistent, thorough, solid pro wrestling enjoyment.  Now, make no mistake about it, over the past summer, I found myself a whopping thirteen weeks behind this solid product in favor of the still new (and intriguing) AEW product and my on-again-off-again hope in the WWE due to nostalgia. However, trusty-work-from-home days have allowed me to binge watch (and work, of course) and it certainly opened my eyes to a new experience when it came to wrestling. Removal from the episodic style habit, and the feel of episodes bridging together seamlessly.  Also, remove from the internet culture of we

5 Thoughts on Pujols Hitting 700

It almost feels like the negative vitriol that surrounded Major League Baseball and its labor issues have dissipated into an air of forgetfulness and forgiveness. A season that has brought us old-school lore with the chasing of historical numbers by way of Aaron Judge and Albert Pujols, and the likes of a modern-day Babe Ruth, in another dominant season by Shohei Ohtani, would ultimately do that. Sprinkle in some amazing rookies on the rise, and all of sudden it's, what did I say about baseball's treatment of fans? It's been some season... In this post, I want to focus on Albert Pujols...the "King", the "Machine", one of the greatest ever. After hitting a historic 700th Home Run ( by the way, I definitely predicted that back in March  - just humble-bragging a bit), I wanted to drop five (fitting, yeah?) thoughts on Albert Pujols:  GREATEST EVER?! - Pujols' career often feels like the Angels' years were some sort of nightmare or a bad edition in a

Would You Rather: Questions 81-90

81. Would you rather be 4'5" or 7'7"? I would prefer to be 7'7". On this weird spectrum, I'm already used to being taller than the average person. I can deal with the extreme height. It'll be nice to play some pick up basketball.  82. Would you rather be tall and fat, or short and well built? Tall and fat. I can always lose the weight. Plus, short and jacked dudes often have to fight the stigma of being jerks on first appearance.  83. Would you rather be poor and work at a job you love, or rich and a job you hate? Poor and work at a job you love. Take it from someone who has their dream job, the sense of purpose and peace of mind is indeed worth much. 

Bound For Glory 2020 Review - If A Tree Falls And No One Hears It...

Television in 2020 has been weird. Check that. It's super weird.  In a year marred by pandemics, death, catastrophe, and overwhelming heartbreak, the viewing habits of everything in entertainment has changed - wrestling included. Ratings are down. No one respects appointment television - and heck, there is even less need for the idea of watching content through said television. Where am I going with this on a Wrestling pay-per-view review? Come on, get to the point, bro!  I haven't been shy in communicating my severe disappointment in professional wrestling (namely WWE) during this pandemic ( Pro Wrestling in COVID Times ). When many entertainment options were off the table, most notably that of sports, pro wrestling had an extreme opportunity to give fans something different, and even capture casual fans.  Unfortunately, they didn't. And a large part of my growing disinterest with pro wrestling has been because of the WWE, and to a much lesser extent, AEW.
