The IF Factor: Questions Answered #371-380

371. If you had to have one job that you have had previously, which one would you want again?

I love my job now. It's what I've always wanted to do. However, if I have to take a step away from this job, I would select my previous position in Parks and Recreation. A lot of fun times (obviously, as there was a section of this blog dedicated to my experiences there - True Tales From Parks and Recreation). 

372. If you could have the autograph of any athlete  you do not have, whose would it be, and what would you like them to sign?

Obviously, my favorite athlete of all-time, Mariano Rivera.

373. If you could set the guidelines for gun control, what would they be?

I would have the process to acquire a gun be a bit more documented and meticulous than it currently is. Those looking to attain a gun and a license to carry said gun must be subject to yearly renewals and must undergo a state mental evaluation exam for renewals. Also, automatic weapons would no longer be legal. After all, what is the purpose of an automatic weapon? Surely, not for sport. 

374. If you could have the original baseball card of any three players in history, who would it be?

Obviously, my favorite athlete of all-time, Mariano Rivera, Willie Mays, and Ken Griffey Jr. 

375. If you could relive any single family outing in your life, what would it be?

One particular trip down to the Caribbean. There were many in my lifetime, but one specifically was super fun and memorable. 

376. If you had to pick one foreign language that students would be required to learn in school, what would it be?

Spanish. The Latin influence in our nation is becoming stronger and stronger. Being able to speak it is becoming more important. 

377. If you could set the national speed limit for all highways, what would it be?

70mph. People go 70 when it's 65, and we go 70 when it's 55, so why not make it 70? 

378. If you could sit and have a beer with three sports figures from any time, who would you pick?

Oooh, this is a good one. I'll go, Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter, and Al Leiter. 

379. If you had to pick the worst teacher from your childhood, who would win the prize? 

Ms. Garcia, my eighth grade Spanish teacher. She was the absolute worst. She even once told me that I'd never amount to anything. Pshhhh, whatever lady. 

380. If you were six inches taller for the day, what would you do?

That would make me a solid 7'1" for a day. Oh, you bet I'll be down at the park or maybe even playing some pickup basketball at my job (athletic facility). That would be so much fun.

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

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/7/17

3 Up 1. Captured Girls Return - The evil that is the gross, disgusting, group that is Boko Haram released 82 of the 300-plus they kidnapped over a year ago. Many are still missing, but giving these girls a chance at life away from the clutches of this group deserves the plus this week.  2. Dear White People - I got around to checking out this show on Netflix and boy was I happy to do so. DWP is VERY thought provoking, truthful, honest, authentic, and yes, very funny. And it's a great show, visually. Can't wait for season two.  3. LeBron James - Because most of us are just waiting for the eventual Cavs/Warriors NBA Finals, we're losing sight of really how awesome LeBron James is. The dude really is the difference maker in this league. It's quite astonishing to think about. The Cavs are rolling, and he's just toying with opponents.  3 Down 1. Trumpcare - Look, I'm not going into this full on. But it just seems to me that this administration is

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.
