Sunday Sundown Rundown - 8/10/14

3 Up 

1. Generous College President - There are a lot of people in executive positions who talk about making change for their staff financially, but only do so with just that, talk. The Kentucky State President did so by action in taking a pay cut to help fund the school's lowest paid workers. Kudos to him. 

2. People Power - It is so easy to lose faith in humanity at times, especially when it comes to helping one another. However, stories such as the recent one in which commuters banded together to rock a train enough in order to free a man whose leg was trapped between the platform and the train.

3. "Apparently" Kid - I'm sure you've seen this by now. If you haven't, take a look. This kid was adorable, and downright hilarious...and for the record, I apparently have never been on live television before either. 

3 Down

1. ISIS/Iraqi Situation - As ISIS moved from claiming territory to unspeakable actions of murder, rape, and other disgusting actions as they run rampant, now we see the U.S. getting involved with air strikes to cease ISIS's destruction. Everyone knew this situations was heading down this road. We can nw only hope an pray this situation doesn't get more extreme. 

2. Mike Brown - What can be said here? These killings of minority young men continue to occur throughout our nation, and all with very cloudy details of what really happened. Not a good thing for race relations and societal harmony in our nation. 

3. NASCAR Incident - Such a tragic incident in the world of NASCAR this week. Tony Stewart will never be the same again. And of course, condolences to Kevin Ward Jr.'s family and loved ones.

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
