The IF Factor: Questions Answered #331-340

331. If you had to pick the worst movie in history, which one would get the dubious honor?

There are so many. Seriously, sometimes I wonder how some films receive funds to be made, and further, who gives it the green light to be placed on DVD to be documented forever? Off the top of my head right now, I'll go with Click or That's My Boy. Yes, safe to say I'm not a huge Adam Sandler guy.

332. If you could have discovered one medical cure in history, which one would you choose?

Penicillin. Seema pretty practical now, and really cures a lot of illnesses that are now minor, but not so much before this beauty of a discovery.

333. If you could have been a jury member in any court case in history, which trial would you choose?

None. Too much pressure. Although, I've never had to serve (yet), I guess I would choose a trial not so controversial or public. Although it didn't include a jury, I would have loved to sit in on the A-Rod/ML:B suspension arbitration hearings. That would have been gold. 

334. If you could add one sentence to the U.S. Constitution, what would it say?

"The right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness does not include lifetime or extensive government assistance" Controversial? Sure, but that's just how I feel. 

335. If you could be the author of any quotation from history, what words would you like to have uttered?

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”― Mahatma Gandhi

Such a great quote that truly embodies many of the qualities I strongly hold - faith, education, imagination, and the appreciation of life. 

336. If you could choose, from what you own right now, what clothes to be buried in when you die, what would you wear?

Ohhhhh, I don't know. I could careless about what I look like when I'm buried as long as I spend eternity with Jesus. But to answer the question, a simple suit and tie would suffice.

337. If you had to describe the worst job interview in your life, what job would it have been for?

My personal worst job interview would either be for a position to be a farmer (I don't think you apply for that anyway) and to work in the fast food industry. Why? Both jobs are the antithesis of me, and my heart wouldn't be in the interview at all. 

338. If you could have hit any homerun in baseball history, which one would you choose?

Easy - Joe Carter's World Series winning home run. It's the dream every baseball-loving kid has when growing up. Other home runs may have gone further, maybe even more dramatic, but none has meant as much as that one. 

339. If you could give anonymous advice to any one person about their appearance, who would it be, and what would you say?

To young black males: You - we - are behind the stereotypical eight ball in various matters, don't compound the issue with an idiotic appearance. Do better.

Dope Sports Threads - Nike City Connect Series (Kansas City Royals)

The Kansas City Royals' City Connect uniforms were a design that I wholeheartedly looked forward to. The Royals' current uniforms and aesthetics are some of the best in baseball, and for a city like Kansas City, it just feels like there was enough room creatively to do something historically enlightening (more so something many do not already know about the city), or a simple approach that builds off of the current design.  To be honest, it may sound simple, but the use of "blue" by the Royals is fantastic.  What we got is a concept that continued the awesome blue approach, with a design concept that is just as cool as their everyday threads. However, where I feel disappointed is the safe approach to this. I would have loved to see them lean into the rich history of the Negro Leagues that is Kansas City - a team (and city) able to do so more than others. That could have been really cool, enriching, meaningful, and somewhat different from the norm - maybe even an ode t

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/15/22

3 Up 1. California Church Heroes - It's soooooooo weird that the top spot is a result of something so horrific as our ongoing domestic terrorism problem of mass shootings. Still, the courage shown by the five members who stopped the shooter deserves it. Those individuals tackled the shooter and tied him up with an electric cord, while wounded.  It's so tough to fathom that those possibilities are within the realm of your Sunday worship, within the sanctity of your church.  But such is America... 2. Olivia Rodrigo & Drake - Rodrigo continues to reap rewards on an excellent album in 2021 as she topped the Billboard Music Awards with seven awards. There was also Drake who I'm beginning to sense we won't really appreciate his body of work until he's near the end of his career. But yeah, Drake poured in a few more for the legacy debates and discussions.

Back of a Church - Revived and Confused

Last week, I found myself in the back of a church service. For the first time in years, I was seated in God’s house. It was redeeming. It was joyous. It was uplifting. It was long overdue. It was also conflicting. Very conflicting. This moment was a culmination of the see-saw contention that has been the road traveled by my heart and soul since my last time present with a congregation. A lot has happened since that last time, and as I’m sure you’ve experienced, the world has endured and changed quite a bit since then too.  I’ve maintained my faith through that entire time. Though, it did wane and weigh throughout moments, periods, happenings, and various reflections. We all have our struggles. There were moments I failed. And others where I've held on steadfastly. Regardless, it continued as a vital source of my existence - my faith, my substance for being, and my purpose for existing.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/27/22

3 Up 1. Volodymyr Zelensky - The President of Ukraine delivered a speech this week that certainly went viral not just for his take as the current war on Ukraine ensues, but for his honesty and courage throughout it.  2. Kentaji Brown Jackson - In a world on fire, here at home President Biden nominated Jackson, who becomes the first black woman to serve on the highest court in the nation. That's so cool. I'm happier for the tons of little girls of color who can dream of being a Supreme Court Judge, and now believe it.
