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.

Predictions and Wild Guesses for the 2021-22 NBA Season

For the first time in as long as I can remember, my New York Knicks have become a bit of a sanctuary for my sports fandom. Everything that has been the New York Yankees summer, and recent elimination, just begs for a proverbial turning of the page. The NBA season is that new chapter.  The Knicks season is a bit of a conundrum, as they've gotten much better, BUT, so did the rest of the Eastern Conference. I'm feeling confident, but I'm also anxious for more good basketball and hoping that last year wasn't some fluky gift to us Knicks for our patience prior to last season.  Whatevs...nonetheless, here are my predictions for the upcoming NBA season.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/24/21

3 Up 1. Science and Research - Look, I'm not trying to get into any debates or start trouble with this selection. I'm just giving props to the men and women who continue to develop these vaccines - and now approved booster shots - that help fight off this terrible virus that has plagued over the past 18 months. Some countries still don't have an option when it comes to vaccines - we're onto booster shots, and can "choose". Perspective and privilege are needed sometimes.  2. Col. Wang Yaping - Give it up to Yaping who in six weeks will become the first Chinese woman to walk in space. OF course, she is receiving tons of backlash from the media - but hey, did we expect anything else? 

CM Punk's Return - Perfect Timing for the Symbol of Anti-WWE

Looooooooook in my eyes, what do you see?! The lyrics to Cult of Personality, especially that first bar,  never felt so fitting for CM Punk as it did last night.  For the most part, everything that is CM Punk's return to wrestling last night at AEW Rampage ties directly into my latest thoughts on pro wrestling - the company is making it must-see destination television, an element desperately needed from pro wrestling.  Last night was incredible as again, it was another moment that made wrestling feel alive - with a wild and energetic pulse. It was one of the coolest moments in pro wrestling that you knew was coming, expected, anticipated, and it was everything and more. Again, MUST-SEE television. That's hard to do.  For me, it wasn't just Punk's return to pro wrestling, but the mere presence and voice of his inclusion in today's space. We know that Punk can deliver on the microphone - probably his best and most signature attribute. We also know that yes, he can

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/10/21

3 Up 1. Moderna Vaccine to Low Income Nations - In a world where the idea of "pandemic" now feels like a state of mind or the privilege of belief, Moderna has decided to aim its efforts in getting at least 1 billion doses to low-income countries the COVID vaccine. I'll save the "vaccine" chat for another time - but this is pretty awesome by Moderna. And oh yeah, highly needed.  2. Candace Parker and Diana Taurasi - Two absolute legends of the WNBA had some legacy-cementing moments this week. Parker lead her hometown Chicago Sky into the WNBA finals, and Taurasi, was named the GOAT of the WNBA by fans. Because well, she is. Congrats to both.  3. Netlfix's On My Block - For the second week in a row I'm putting a personal - and admittedly, biased - selection in the "Up" section. One of my favorite shows by Netflix, On My Block , released its fourth and final season, and yes, I binged it on my daily commute home. Gonna miss the crew from Freeridge.
