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.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/17/22

3 Up 1. Dr. King Weekend - I love this weekend, because, I'm just a big fan of Dr. King. Sure, this is the weekend of many who will ill-use his quotes, water down his message and purpose, and hold up his work in such a way to accommodate and support their message - at times, it's comical.  However, it's a weekend to be reminded, to reflect, and to celebrate his life. Don't ever forget, Dr. King was hated during his time. He was killed for fear of what he would bring to America. Let's not forget that as we reflect this weekend. 

WWE Day 1 Review: Back to the WWE Product

I immediately warn you, this review will be skewed. Why? Well, yours truly hasn't followed the WWE product since Summerslam. I just haven't been interested in any way through 2021, and finally, I stopped hanging on with the hope that the product will hook me. I just simply gave up. There is too much out there to wait.  RAW has been atrocious - I don't even skim through the DVR recordings anymore unless something pops up in the general wrestling news feed worth seeing. Smackdown will typically and occasionally get a fast-forward style of viewing (mainly due to having to see Roman Reigns' work), and NXT feels more and more like a product that is Triple-A baseball - it's okay, but I can spend time invested into other products.  So yeah, I've been out of the loop. And this review surely will reflect that. However, with a new year (and a lazy Saturday Night), I gave the WWE my time and interest. I wasn't disappointed. And this is good heading into the Royal Rumbl

IMPACT Hard to Kill 2022 Review: "Mickie is in the Rumble. ROH is here. Wild times, Yo"

IMPACT Wrestling kicked off their 2022 campaign with big noise that made waves throughout pro wrestling and has now set them up for some intriguing things ahead. Before this event even took to the airwaves, there was the subtle, yet huge bomb, that was the voice of Pat McAfee on FOX announcing Mickie Jam...err, excuse me...IMPACT Knockout champion, Mickie James, would be in the Women's Royal Rumble. Yes, that's wrestling in 2022. Like you, I too was stunned. I sat there with Smackdown as backdrop entertainment, just to snap up wide-eyed and amazed, rewinding it, over and over again. You know, just to make sure I wasn't going crazy. So yeah... And then of course Hard to Kill happened. And this event continues to be such a fitting name for a company that truly embodies that slogan as it moves forward. Right now, that includes acknowledgment from the industry leader on national television, as well as offering up a metaphorical couch to its one-time rivals in ROH, for them to c
