The IF Factor: Questions Answered #471-480

471. If you could visit only one more place in the world that you have never been, where would you go for this final voyage?

Australia. 

472. If you had to pick the most difficult question you could be asked, what would it be?

Well, it's one that has crossed my mind before - do I sell my parents house or keep it for myself when, you know...

473. If you could rid the earth of one thing, what would it be?

Ignorance.


474. If you had to choose the one thing that gives you the most comfort, what would you say?

Jesus. Nothing gives me more security than my faith. Not money. Not security. Not health. Just my faith. 

475. If you had to name the one thing that most frightens you about growing old, what would it be?

As I get older, I'm truly starting to appreciate the concept of not just living life to the fullest, but living life with effectiveness.

476. If you could be more ambitious in only one aspect of your life, what would it be?

Morning routine. I'm still a struggling morning person. Partly because my work schedule is all over the place. I would like to become more ambitious in rising early...and I guess going with that, going to bed early. Easier said than done. 

477. If you were to spend the rest of your life in the company of a single type of animal, which would you choose?

Well this is a rough question. I guess I'll go with a dog. They seem domestic enough to live with for the rest of my life. 

478. If you had to constantly carry a weapon of some kind, what would it be?

Am I in danger? Do I live in a dangerous neighborhood? I will select a knife. A gun seems rather dangerous, and things like rocket launchers and grenades aren't convenient enough. 

479. If you had to name the one most important ingredient of human beauty, what would you say it is?

It sounds cheesy and somewhat naive, but a will and need to serve others would be it. Those with a will and characteristic to serve and appreciate others are my favorite people. I typicaly can't stand self-aggrandizing selfish people. 

480. If you were to add a thirteenth month to the year, where would you insert it?

Easily between July and August. I'm all about summer, and anyway to expand it would be terrific.

5 Quick Knicks Draft 2022 Thoughts - "We're Not There Yet"

Well, the New York Knicks certainly do not disappoint in whatever they do in this stretch of anxiety-ridden mediocrity for the fanbase.  I had hope going into this season. That was eventually snuffed out with that horrid stretch in March. Then for some reason, I felt like maybe - just maybe - things would break for us in the Lottery. And for a brief second on draft night, especially once you could connect (in your hopelessly, imaginative mind) the pieces from the reports of all the reputable journalists, that maybe - again, just maybe! - we were going to get Jaden Ivy.  Ummm, yeah. Strike one. Strike two. Strike three.  With all of that said, I'm still here, and I'm still longing for that moment when NBA Champions and New York Knicks will be in the same sentence. Until then, I'm here continuing to vent through these words on this site.

Dope Sports Threats - Nike City Connect Series (Milwaukee Brewers)

Before we dive into the Milwaukee Brewers Nike City Connect uniforms, I want to give some major props to the Brewers organization for handling the Lorenzo Cain situation . Allowing Cain to remain with the team long enough to reach the 10-year milestone, despite a subpar performance and every intention to designate him for assignment, is classy.  Of course, that 10 years (and 5 years with the same team) gives Cain added incentives to his pension as a Major League player. The Brewers didn't have to do that. Classy stuff.  As for these new threads, it's tough for Nike to surpass the aesthetics of the Brewers' current everyday design. The pinstripes, the combination of blue and yellow, the arc of the font across the chest - all of it just feels like the very best of old-school-baseball-in modern-age-aesthetics. And yes, there is the beautiful, amazing, fantastic logo that sits atop the hat is a baseball glove, wrapped with the secret message of "MB" (Milwaukee Br...yo

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/19/22

3 Up 1. Father's Day and Juneteenth - A combined weekend of all-sort of celebrations, reflections, and appreciation. Sending gratitude and good vibes to all fathers, substitute fathers, step-in fathers, mentors, and figures who have helped shape the lives of many.  Also, take some time to reflect and think through the reflective day that is Juneteenth - new to so many - of the horrific start to our country's existence, and the freedom that came after a century of captivity.  2. Ashley Adirika - This is a dope story. It's the kind of story that is amazing and quite frankly, inspirational. Adirika, a Florida teen, graduates high school with offers from all Ivy schools and many more top institutions in the country. If that wasn't enough, Ashley also started her own non-profit organization to help mentorship for young women.  Unbelievably amazing.  3. Steph Curry - My dude was cooking! Steph continues to be one of my favorite athletes, and such a joy to watch. I was there

Dope Sports Threads - Nike City Connect Series (Los Angeles Angels) | MLB July 4th Hats

The Los Angeles Angels Nike City Connect uniforms might be the very first in the collection that makes a clear argument in style, practicality, and overall aesthetics to replace - yes, REPLACE! - the everyday uniforms.  That's no hyperbole from me. I really love the look of these threads and feel like the uniforms not only capture the mission statement of the collection but ultimately, do more for Angel's brand.  Let's dig in shall we... The biggest appeal to the uniforms for me is easy - simplicity. Nike and the Angels did not go crazy in trying to capture the "Los Angeles" in its identity, especially, considering the roots that are heavy (and controversial) in Anaheim. The overall look is clean, and with that, carries a tremendous cream overtone that drives the concept home.  The design is based off of the beach, the coastline, and everything that is summer in SoCal - baseball, beach, surfing, and good vibes. Check. Check. Check, and ultimately, check.  Pulling
