Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/12/14

3 Up

1. Mothers - Mothers day is such a hard thing to wrap your mind around. On one end, it's nice to honor the women who make so many things happen in homes worldwide. However, on the other end, they deserve so much more than just one day. Either way, much love and praise to the good mothers out there. Your work is incomparable.

2. New York Rangers - It's rare that hockey takes over this city, but the Rangers are on the verge of this, especially after a dramatic Game 6 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Added to the story is the emotional sidebar of Martin St. Louis, who recently lost his mother, and played inspiringly to will the Rangers to force a Game 7. 

3. PlayStation 4 - Recently bought one along with MLB The Show 14 and it's one of the best things ever. Seriously, ever. I love PlayStation 4.

3 Down

1. Kidnapped Nigerian Girls - There are times when stories like this are happening and our media decides to cover other pointless "news" which makes me so angry. However, while I still feel this way, the situation of those Nigerian girls being held captive is the main focus and not our country's idiotic focus. Here is to hoping all of those girls are released, and that we can find those who are doing such evil deeds and bring them to justice. 

2. Michael Sam Coverage - I'm happy for Michael Sam and his ability to live life without fear and discrimination. But come on, the coverage of a seventh round pick is rather ridiculous. We want equality, yet, there are cameras following him prior to his selection? Again, other than being a gay football player, why else would this be big news? And isn't the idea to get beyond him being, you know, a gay football player? 

3. Brian McCann - The new high-priced and fiery catcher for the Yankees was projected to be the new heart and soul of the club. While still VERY early, his struggling play is beginning to show and is making many worry about the goods purchased.

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

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. 

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

Would You Rather: Questions 81-90

81. Would you rather be 4'5" or 7'7"? I would prefer to be 7'7". On this weird spectrum, I'm already used to being taller than the average person. I can deal with the extreme height. It'll be nice to play some pick up basketball.  82. Would you rather be tall and fat, or short and well built? Tall and fat. I can always lose the weight. Plus, short and jacked dudes often have to fight the stigma of being jerks on first appearance.  83. Would you rather be poor and work at a job you love, or rich and a job you hate? Poor and work at a job you love. Take it from someone who has their dream job, the sense of purpose and peace of mind is indeed worth much.
