Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/15/14

3 Up

1. Hockey - The sport really grabbed some casual viewers and made such an impression to possibly keep them heading into the 14-15 season. The Stanley Cup playoffs were remarkable, and the Finals were even better. As I stated yesterday after that amazing Game 5, Hockey is definitely on my radar moving forward. 

2. The World Cup - How awesome has the opening games been? This month is going to be lots and lots of fun. 

3. Yoenis Cespdes - This finalizes the sports trifecta for "ups" this week. No words needed. Just watch this video of what Cespedes did...and also, a follow up later this week in doing this.

3 Down

1. Mass Murders in Iraq - The recent mass murders by the ISIS terrorist group is causing a large concern in the country, and also placing the United States in a peculiar position after years of investment.

2. Mass Shootings - Say what you want about gun policy or even your opinion on the President - you have to admit what he said in regards to the latest school shooting in Oregon is true. No other developed country puts up with this nonsense. When will this stop? 

3. Miami Heat Fans - Walking out at the end of Game 4 when the Heat were down in the 4th quarter was unacceptable. Especially, when there is a possibility that could've been the last home game for the team this season. Then again, can we expect anything else from such a sketchy and somewhat, fraudulent, fanbase?

WWE Survivor Series 2023 Review: "Whaddya Wanna Talk About?"

Well, following that premium live event, in the words of Cody Rhodes... "whaddya wanna talk about?"  The obvious is there, right? CM Punk, somehow, makes a bid for another moment-of-the-year candidate for wrestling fans with another "return" - his second over the last four years. This one, back to the WWE, in what felt like the most improbable of opportunities. But as we've learned, WWE truly is where you "never say never".  You can go in so many directions on this one. But without going too far down a road that hasn't developed or we have some headlights on, it's quite clear that WWE is absolutely crushing the wrestling business right now, and adding anything - or anyone - to that continued record success is the mission. They. Are. Not. Settled.  Second, the unveil I thought was great. Just absolute pro wrestling at its peak. As soon as the guitar riff to "Cult of Personality" hit and the familiar graphics hit the screens, my immedia

Quick Ponder: Gratitude

  My sense of gratitude explodes within my heart when I cease expressing it through the tangible, but rather through, time and moments.  Happy Thanksgiving, all. 

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/26/23

3 Up 1. Hostages Released - It might not be an overwhelming consensus - as this topic is so polarizing that I doubt we come to such agreements. Regardless, having innocent individuals released is a plus in the situation. I wish we still didn't have innocent people dying, but that's a whole other topic.  1a. Cease Fire - Who knows how long this will last. But the fact there is an agreement in place while hostages are being released is a plus. Take it.  2. Thanksgiving - The older I get, the more this day has a deeper focus and a sense of gratitude. Please take a moment today to focus on that among all of the chaos of food, family, friends, and everything else.  3. CM Punk Return - How cool was that? CM Punk returns to the WWE at the Survivor Series. Never say never in that company.  3 Down 1. NBA Ethics Optics - From Miles Bridges to Josh Giddey, its been really difficult lately to trust the NBA's moral compass. I'm not throwing them under the bus as they've done the
