The IF Factor: Questions Answered #481-490

481. If you had to name the one thing that repeatedly makes you angriest, what would it be?

Selfish people who have zero regards for others and their well-being. 

482. If you could change one thing about the building you work in, what would you alter?

Wow. I would love to work in a new state-of-the-art athletic facility. The building I currently work in is over 40 years old. Ironically, it will be coming down this year, and a new one will be built in it's footprint. 

483. If you were to prescribe a cure for grief, what would it entail?

It would entail having fun. It just seems natural to me that the opposite of grief - having fun - should be a cure for the emotion.

484. If you were to name the most obnoxious tourists you've encountered, who would they be?

Living in New York City, I live this everyday - the tourist that stops on a dime because the terrible and very cliche photo they must take is so important that they must interrupt everyone's morning commute to work. Yup. Nothing more obnoxious that that camera-wielding knucklehead. 

485. If you had to eliminate forever, one form of weather, what would it be?

Ha - snow. I know some love it. After four years of college in Central New York, I couldn't careless to ever see snow again. Especially as a summer, warm-weather type of guy. I would suggest simply eliminating it from my surroundings forever. 

486. If you could ensure one thing about Heaven besides its existence, what would it be?

Well for one, I can't wait for Heaven. It's going to be so kick-ass. I can't imagine what God has prepared up there. Nonetheless, I hope it has baseball. And I know Heaven is going to be filled with fun and pain free, but since baseball is full of failure, I just hope the good Lord allows that in Heaven so the great game of baseball can continue. 

I know, complex, but hey, I can't wait to play baseball for eternity. 

487. If you could have had any job in history, what would it have been?

I say it all the time - Hotel/Resort reviewer for a major publication. Yes, please pay me to go experience the finest hotels in some of the greatest cities in the world. I'l gladly share with you my opinion. 

488. If you could ensure that one existing law would never be broken by anyone, which would it be?

Child Molestation. Pretty self-explanatory. 

489. If you could have changed one thing about your own wedding ceremony, what would be revised?

Hahahaha. My pants. Somehow I ended up with my brothers pants who wanted them longer than I would have. So I ended up with some pretty baggy pants all day. I'm not sure anyone noticed, but it still bugs me. 

490. If you were to pick the most romantic city or foreign country you have been to, which would win?

Italy. Spent 12 days there touring the entire country and it's greatest cities with my best friend, and tag team partner, aka my wife.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 12/11/22

3 Up 1. Protection of Same-Sex Marriage - Well, what do you know? Our elected officials CAN work together to get important policies completed that accurately and democratically represent the people. Cynicism aside, it's good to see this bill get passed. Imagine the huge step back that this would have been. 2. Britney Griner Home - I honestly don't care about the politics around this story. Griner needed to come home. And I'm glad she finally is.  3. Impact Wrestling Main Event - Everything that was "Speedball" Mike Bailey vs. "The Walking Weapon" Josh Alexander on this week's episode of Impact Wrestling was what makes pro wrestling so great. Both guys put on a classic that lasted almost an hour, and it was one of the best matches I've enjoyed in a long time. Kudos to both men.  3 Down 1. Grant Wahl - It's the kind of story that is super emotional for the following reasons: 1) Wahl was the premiere journalist in the soccer real; 2) Wahl was be

3 Up 1. Healthcare Debt Removed from Credit Score - This is a small win in a direction that just seems, well...reasonable. Healthcare is expensive and not exactly the fault of an individual's ability to handle their finances responsibly. The subtle change (with restrictions) is a nice addition that ought to help many battling health issues, yet not derail their entire personal life.  2. Alyssa Thompson - The teenage phenom comes off gaining some International play but becoming the first overall pick in the NWSL. Thompson's future is SO bright, and this should be part of that narrative when we marvel at her journey.  3. Ozone Layer Recovery - For years, as a kid, I remember hearing that "we were constantly damaging the Ozone layer". Many thanks to Captain Planet and the Planeteers for that insight. I'm glad to see there has been some progress there.  3 Down 1. Brazil Democracy - It's a shame to see politicians around the world pull from our history with senti

3 Up 1. Bad Bunny - Congratulations (and major breakthrough props) are in order for Bad Bunny who made history with the first Spanish-Language Album of the Year nomination. The dude has been crushing it with major cross-over appeal - and yes, he's a helluva wrestler.  2. Taylor Swift - This could be a down because of the entire Ticketmaster ordeal, but Swift gets the "Up" solely because only she can break Ticketmaster like this. The star power continues to be amazing.  3. FIFA World Cup - Sure, there is plenty of negatives to get into here, but the event itself is amazing. I'm ready to get caught up in it all.  3 Down 1. Iran Protestors - The nation is in political unrest and many protesters being caught are being sentenced to harsh penalties, or worse, death. Just more instability  2. U.S. Mass Shootings - We just continue to give access to individuals who shouldn't have guns. We've become so numb to this. What have we become?  Prayers, comfort, and positive

3 Up  1. Rail Workers Agreement - The nation avoiding a major - major! - supply chain issue when the Rail Workers union settled their dispute. In the process we learned that these workers had one - one! - sick day per year. That's absolutely insane. How could you not root for the union here to win? And they did.  2. Protecting Same-Sex/Interracial Marriage - It's amazing that we have to politicize and advocate as people for these kid of things, but here we are.  3. World Cup - Sports biggest event continues on with some thrilling games and upsets. Selfishly giving some love to the US Men's National Team who survived Group Play and made it to the Knockout stages.  3 Down 1. "Terminating the Constitution" - Look, I'm so over bashing Donald Trump. That's my neutral take on it all. My political take is this, how did we get here? Candidates are calling for ripping up the document that we base everything off of? Again, how did we get here?  2. Hate Speech on Twi
