Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/9/14

3 Up

1. Video Seeing Rain for First Time - This video is completely cute. Adorable. Absolutely just melts your heart. Makes you wonder when do we become jaded regarding the simple things in life? How many of us say, "ugh, it's raining" as opposed to the reaction of this little girl. 

2. Exonerated Murder Charges - This could easily be a "down" due to our justice system failing these two men. However, we'll focus on the positive and be thankful the correction was made even after twenty-one years of wrongful imprisonment.

3. Kevin Durant - These dude is simply amazing to watch. Durant is the template everyone guy goes for in the create-a-player in a video game. It's just amazing to watch him play...even when he goes for 41 against my Knicks. 

3 Down

1. Sochi Problems - As someone in the Sports and Event management field, to see the utter failings and lack of proper management from the Russians for the Winter Olympics is embarrassing. Accommodations are incomplete, security has been compromised, competition courses aren't up to par, and some athletes have threatened to leave. Russia should be highly embarrassed. 

2. Danish Zoo - I've never been one to be called an animal lover, but even I know what this Danish zoo did was completely wrong. 

3. Man Shoved By Marcus Smart - First, let me say, Smart was wrong for shoving him. He needs to keep his composure, regardless of whatever what was said to him. 

Yet, with that said, that man who feels he could yell anything at college kids because he throws a money into a booster club for Texas Tech should be ashamed of himself. Real tough guy yelling things to incite a twenty-year old. Good job, tough guy.

WWE Wrestlemania XL Review: "I absolutely loved this Wrestlemania"

It's easy to get caught up and become a prisoner of the moment. Especially in today's world where the latest moment is ostracized, super-analyzed, and hyperbolized - it's very much the clickbait, social media, microwave society we live in.  Yet, even after acknowledging that (as well as my Tribal Chief, of course), I still come to this feeling that Wrestlemania XL is one of the best Wrestlemania's, ever.  Yes, ever!  I don't need Triple H's metrics and benchmarks to influence me. No, no, no! In terms of hype, storylines, payoffs, match quality, and just overall fun - this entire weekend was amazing.  I'm slightly skewed in my preference as well. This was my son's first Wrestlemania as a pro wrestling fan. Having him at my side cheering on his favorites, getting caught up in the drama, and even crying at the end of the night because his Tribal Chief lost to "that no good Cody" added to the overall appreciation of the event.  So yeah, I have some

DP Review of the Alternate Knicks Orange Jersey

One of the good aspects about having a blog and being truthful and honest about it, is the hindsight thought process it provides. DP devotees already know how much I love my New York Knicks, and how excited I was about their new jerseys last year. It was a new look that was desperately needed ( DP Review On Knicks New Uniforms ).  In reviewing those jerseys last year, I had the following comments in regards to then-rumors regarding the addition of an alternative orange jersey for the Knicks and overall NBA changes to the Christmas Day special jerseys:  "As long as we do not add an "alternative jersey" (I read rumors of an orange one - woof!) (and the league-wide Spanish jerseys are fine). And please, please - PLEASE - let's finally do away with the awful green jerseys we feel the need to wear on Christmas and St. Patrick's day! Pretty please!"
