Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/25/14

3 Up

1. Memorial Day Weekend - I love Memorial Day Weekend. The unofficial start of summer, BBQs, beaches, and of course, honoring the men and women who make our country so great. As someone who loves to write, blog, and share my thoughts, I greatly appreciate my 1st amendment right and those who made it happen, and continue to defend it. 

2. Birthday - On this Sunday, it is another birthday for yours truly. Turning 29 is sort of an odd birthday en route to the milestone one of 30, but it's still another year of God's grace and living on this earth. I'll take it. 

3. Cricket Catch - As a son of a cricketer, I appreciate the wonderful game of cricket. This catch made by Kieron Pollard is amazing. Probably the best play I've seen all year, in any sport. 

3 Down

1. Virgin Killer - This guy is just another mass murder who has a gripe with life and unfortunately will be remembered for his evil deeds. I refuse to read anyone's words (The killer's 141 page manifesto) describing their reasoning for taking the lives of many. Just me, just my opinion. Either way, this is such a sad story. 

2. Kimye Wedding - It's unbelievable how much coverage our media gives these two. For what?! No idea. When other stories and issues are more pressing and deserves the attention for it's cause, we get more Kim and Kanye. Congrats to the both of them on their wedding, but shame on our media. 

3. Donovan Snub - The Landon Donovan snub is interesting. While I get the USA Soccer looking to move on in a younger and fresher direction, leaving the best American player ever still feels a bit of a gamble. And for now, until proven otherwise, this gets a thumb down.

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!"

Quick Ponder: Daily Armor

Imagine, if we can see the dents and scratches, the smashes and chaos,  on the daily armor, each of us put on. Just imagine. 

Predictions and Wild Guesses for the 2024 MLB Season

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports After an off-season where the Los Angeles Dodgers spent the equivalent of a nation's GDP to acquire talent - I'm not sure if that's factual, but it felt like it - the 2024 MLB Season is finally here.  Sure, this Yankees fan is not just annoyed with the big spending of the Dodgers, but yeah, secretly envious as well. That used to be us, man!  Regardless, baseball is back on the docket. While my beloved New York Knicks have my attention and all of my heart, including what has been a fun March Madness period for men's and women's basketball, it's soothing to have baseball back. I can't explain what it is, but baseball just does that for me.  Nonetheless, let's do what we do in this post every year. Here are my wacky predictions and wild guesses for the 2024 season.  --- STANDINGS (WINS) AL EAST Orioles - 93 Yankees - 90 Blue Jays - 85 Red Sox - 82 Rays - 80 AL CENTRAL Twins - 88 Tigers - 86 Guardians - 81 Royals - 70 White Sox -
