Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/11/15

3 Up

1. Unity Rally - After the terrorist shootings in France, many came out in a unity rally to help support freedom of speech and to promote unity in the face of 

2. Trevor Booker's Crazy Shot - No words can describe this shot. Just take a look here

3. Pro Wrestling - Despite the WWE's awful programming, the world of pro wrestling has been very entertaining as of late with New Japans Wrestlekingdom 9 event that drew over 60,000 people in Tokyo, Japan, and the great products that is LUCHA underground and TNA Wrestling. 

3 Down

1. Nigeria - The international issues continue into 2015 as Nigeria lost over 2000 natives in a brutal massacre by the Boko Haram terrorist group. The world continues to be a horrific place. Let's hope this becomes as worldly of an issue as the others have been. 

2. Charlie Hebdo - Another terrorist attack in Paris this past week with the intent on curbing freedom of speech and intimidating democracy. The mass killings has sparked plenty of protests and discussion regarding freedom of speech and sacrilegious comments. 

3. NFL Rules - After Dez BRyant's awesome catch was not consider a catch because he didn't make a "football move", many are now wondering what exactly are the NFL rules. More than ever, the rules that govern the league seem arbitrary. 

1 Confused

Free Community College - I understand both sides of the spectrum on President Obama's latest initiative, but I'm not sure on how I truly feel about this. I'm all for education and making opportunities available, but who is paying for this? Nothing is free.

WWE Wrestlemania XL Review: "I absolutely loved this Wrestlemania"

It's easy to get caught up and become a prisoner of the moment. Especially in today's world where the latest moment is ostracized, super-analyzed, and hyperbolized - it's very much the clickbait, social media, microwave society we live in.  Yet, even after acknowledging that (as well as my Tribal Chief, of course), I still come to this feeling that Wrestlemania XL is one of the best Wrestlemania's, ever.  Yes, ever!  I don't need Triple H's metrics and benchmarks to influence me. No, no, no! In terms of hype, storylines, payoffs, match quality, and just overall fun - this entire weekend was amazing.  I'm slightly skewed in my preference as well. This was my son's first Wrestlemania as a pro wrestling fan. Having him at my side cheering on his favorites, getting caught up in the drama, and even crying at the end of the night because his Tribal Chief lost to "that no good Cody" added to the overall appreciation of the event.  So yeah, I have some

DP Review of the Alternate Knicks Orange Jersey

One of the good aspects about having a blog and being truthful and honest about it, is the hindsight thought process it provides. DP devotees already know how much I love my New York Knicks, and how excited I was about their new jerseys last year. It was a new look that was desperately needed ( DP Review On Knicks New Uniforms ).  In reviewing those jerseys last year, I had the following comments in regards to then-rumors regarding the addition of an alternative orange jersey for the Knicks and overall NBA changes to the Christmas Day special jerseys:  "As long as we do not add an "alternative jersey" (I read rumors of an orange one - woof!) (and the league-wide Spanish jerseys are fine). And please, please - PLEASE - let's finally do away with the awful green jerseys we feel the need to wear on Christmas and St. Patrick's day! Pretty please!"
