Springfield Bracket

#1 Peyton Manning vs. #4 Sandra Bullock

Better Prom Date - Sorry Peyton, I'd be lying if I tried to come up with a reason to choose you over Sandra. (Bullock 1-0). 

Most Likely to Win Oscar/Grammy - about another easy one. A blowout and a somewhat upset. Sandra's moving on! (Bullock Wins 2-0)

#3 Batman vs. #7 Ronda Rousey

Better Prom Date - How can you not laugh at someone walking into prom with Batman? Seriously?! Now how about this, who is going to laugh at someone walking into prom with Ronda Roussey? She would probably punch you in the face...or worse. (Rousey 1-0)

Most Likely to Win Grammy/Oscar - Anyone seeing Batman doing any singing or entertaining? Didn't think so. Rousey is in Expendables 3 coming up (I know, not the best argument) and Fast and Furious 7. Tough luck Batman. (Rousey Wins 2-0)

Parts Unknown Bracket

#8 Leslie Knope vs. #4 Justin Timberlake

Better Prom Date - While Leslie Knope would be awesome as she would organize and plan everything for the night, we're talking about walking into prom with Justin Timberlake. Sorry Knope. (Timberlake 1-0)

Most Likely to Win Grammy/Oscar - Umm...yeah, sorry Knope. (Timberlake wins 2-0)

#6 Macklemore vs. #2 Kate Middleton

Better Prom Date - Macklemore would be pretty awesome from a fun perspective, but taking royalty, not like the I'll say-anything-to-this-girl-to-make-her-go-to-prom-with-me type of royalty, but real royalty, is unmatched. (Middleton 1-0)

Most Likely to Win Oscar/Grammy - Kate Middleton doesn't, and really shouldn't have to do anything ever again. Plus, Macklemore already has a Grammy. (Tied 1-1)

More Interesting Interview - As much as the world would anticipate it, I think a Kate Middleton interview would be boring. Besides being royalty, why else do we care? Macklemore at least brings social and politics to the table along with his celebrity, which always makes for something interesting to listen to, or at the least, respect. (Macklemore wins 2-1)

Dome Pondering Movie Review: The Incredibles 2 (2018)

What is it about? The Parr family returns to take on a new mission which involves a change in family roles as well as a new villain. Who is in it? Craig T. Nelson - Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible Holly Hunter - Helen Parr/Elastagirl Sarah Powell - Violet Parr Favorite Scene: After trying to contain Jack-Jack, his constant battle with a backyard rodent opens up the family to the multitude of powers that he possesses, or even, can develop. Favorite Quote: "If you wanna get out of the hole, first you gotta put down the shovel." Review: Like many, I LOVED the original Incredibles film. And yes, I too was annoyed whenever a sequel wasn't announced. After all, there were many franchises that debuted, got a sequel, and even moved straight to release on their third installment before our lovable heroic family got their turn! But I digress... Nonetheless, it finally arrived. And if I'm being honest, The Incredibles 2 was good. It just wasn't what I wa

AEW All IN: London (2023) Review: "This large of a crowd for an event that wasn't the WWE!"

I'm obviously registering these thoughts incredibly late, but such is the current state of pro wrestling right now - there is just so much going on, and so much to enjoy. It's a great time to be a fan, regardless of where your tribalism fandom falls - if you carry such allegiances.  I'm sure no matter what product you find entertaining, you circled AEW's All In event from Wembley Stadium as a must-watch. I don't care about someone else's "take" on the attendance total - I couldn't care less if it was the record for a pro wrestling event or not - what AEW was able to accomplish is absolutely amazing! Four years in, and the company produced an event on the levels of Wrestlemania in terms of attendance and business - that's damn impressive! Tony Khan and the entire company deserve loads of credit for taking that leap because it very much could have failed. They took a chance, and absolutely delivered (and so much more), and proved there is a subs

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/10/23

3 Up 1. Coco Gauf & Novak Djokovic - The US Open wrapped up this weekend and tennis crowned some deserving champions. Djokovic continues to add to a remarkable career with his 24th (!!) grand slam title win. And of course, Coco Gauff won over America with her win. It's impressive to see the effect that the Williams sisters have had on tennis - wow. Looking forward to seeing the star Gauff will become.  2. Olivia Rodrigo - Her first album was fire. Even this late-thirties male enjoyed it. The sophomore album is always the toughest and Rodrigo apparently (haven't listened to it myself, yet) dropped an absolute banger in "Guts". So much so, that it broke records for debut stream with over 60 million streams!  3. Deion Sanders - There's way to much dialogue around Sanders that isn't needed. Here is what it boils down to for me - Sanders took over a program that was 1-11. He brought in 80+ players. His team is currently 2-0, including victories over a ranked op
