Sunday Sundown Rundown - 3/9/14

3 Up

1. Accountability for the NY Post - I read this story and was filled with so much satisfaction. Finally (FINALLY!), there is some accountability for yellow journalism and parts of the irresponsible media in today's society. I really hope these guys create a precedent in their case against the raunchy newspaper.

2. Joakim Noah - You just have to love athletes like Noah who have such high energy, hustle, character, and team spirit. Such a joy to watch him play at times, especially for a guy who isn't one of the premiere marquee names in the league. And where the Chicago Bulls are in the standings, how could he not be in the MVP conversation? Seriously.

3. Cool Houses - These houses are just so cool. Especially, the house over the river. Amazing.

3 Down

1. Malaysia Airline Flight MH307 - This story is so bizarre, it's something out of a sci-fi novel. The plane just vanished, and is one of the scariest, most-tragic, stories I've ever heard of. God Bless those who were on board, and their loved ones.

2. Spoiled Brat - I CANNOT even fathom the thought and lack of emotion this 18 year-old girl has. She is suing her parents for her final year of private high school tuition, the first year of college tuition, and $20,000. Of course, she is doing so by also claiming as an adult who is still a non-emancipated child, she doesn't have to follow her parent's rules. Only in America, folks. You have to read up on this. Your blood will boil in anger. Trust me.

3. Ann Coulter - I'm neither towards the left or the right in politics, however, Ann Coulter's recent remarks regarding the "browning of America" and claims that immigration reform is all about providing Dems with new voters is rather laughable. It's people like Coulter who are shooting the GOP in the foot and furthering liberalism in our society to the extreme. Just bloggin.

What is it about?  Building employees, who are victims of a wealthy tenant's Ponzi scheme, conspire and work together to rob what is left of the man's fortune to not only put him in jail, but to get revenge.  Who is in it?  Ben Stiller - Josh Kovaks Eddie Murphy - Slide Casey Affleck - Charlie Matthew Broderick - Mr. Fitzhugh

2024 NBA All-Star Weekend Thoughts

There's something wrong with the All-Star Game.  Yeah, we've definitely had this conversation before. Expect to pick up this very discussion (again) in July when Major League Baseball has their version in the "Mid-Summer Classic" when it is the ONLY current topic to bounce around in the stratosphere of sports discourse.  What's wrong with the All-Star Game?!  I'm not dismissing the obvious - yes, the NBA All-Star Game is very much at an alarming point of necessary refinement and change - evaluation is needed. What we saw on Sunday night was not disappointing, but outright embarrassing. Also yes, gone are the days when the game flooded your television screen at a respectable 6:30pm on NBC, and you were wowed by the athleticism and star power of the first half of the game, and treated to what felt like the world's best players playing pickup basketball on the grandest stage.  Now? Not so much. So yeah, we got the message. The outrage - and shock TV and hot t
