Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/27/14

3 Up

1. Nashville, Tennesse - Had my first encounter with "Music City" this past week, and it was terrific. Such a great city. Actually a lot more fun than I expected. Be on the lookout for that followup post. 

2. Dani Alves - Unfortunately, racism in sports has been the talk this week due to Donald Sterling's idiotic statements. However, Alves dealt with racism as well as a fan threw a banana at him during a Barcelona match. Instead of being hurt, Alves simply picked up the banana, ate it, and defused the situation with class and humor. Bravo! Bravo, Mr. Alves.

3 Down

1. Donald Sterling - What an idiotic thing to say. So happy to see him get caught. Again, I'm sure there are many who say very similar things to this in the comfort in their own space. Now that he was caught, he wants to apologize? Blah. 

2. Donald Sterling - I would love to see folks just outright boycott the Clippers next year. I feel bad for those players who have to don your organization's colors and ultimately work for you. I feel for those who work hard for the Clippers organization. Unfortunately, that is the only way a guy like Sterling will learn, by hurting him through his pockets.

3. Donald Sterling - What a clown, huh?

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!"
