Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/19/15

3 Up

1. #IWishMyTeacherKnew - This was a really cool thing done by a third grade teacher in Denver, Colorado. The initiative not only gives her students an opportunity to share their feelings, but a platform for to relate to her students. Sometimes we need less standardized testing, and more initiatives like this. 

2. New York Mets - Whoa, who are these guys?! I thought the Mets would be good this year, but this good? No one saw this coming. Even as a Yankees fan, I'm happy for Mets fans. They've put up with quite a lot over the past few years. 

3. Alex Rodriguez - Speaking of a surprise, how awesome has it been to watch A-Rod turn back the clock and be one of the best hitters in baseball right now? He's never looked so relaxed. Once you hit rock bottom, what else is there to worry about? 

3 Down

1. ISIS Killing Christians - Just when you think ISIS couldn't be any more of a threat, they are now persecuting more Christians in Libya. This is heartbreaking. What has become of the Eastern world?  

2. Migrant Ship Capsized - In more sad news, a migrant ship capsized in the Mediterranean Sea as more people look to flee the Middle East and Northern Africa due to war, persecution, and poverty. 

3. Britt McHenry - It's funny, I had no idea who Britt McHenry was until her backlash was caught on video. We've all had our moments in anger at companies, but berating another person with personal insults the way she did is not only wrong, but evident of the true person she is. Unacceptable.

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

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/9/21

3 Up 1. Justice for Ahmaud Arbery - It won't bring Ahmaud back. It won't right the wrong done. I'm not even sure if it provides solace for his loved ones. However, having those three men finish their lives in prison is the most that could have been done. Kudos to Judge Timothy Walmsley and the point he made by holding a minute of silence to prove it was just a fraction of how long they chased Arbery.  2. Sidney Poitier - I learned about Poitier through a film class in High School. To this day, I'm thankful for a teacher to recognize the greatness of black actors and the contributions of others to the entertainment industry. From "To Sir with Love" to "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", I adored his work, and him as a person. A life well-lived.
