Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/6/15

3 Up 

1. Easter - One of my favorite holidays. How can you now love celebrating resurrection Sunday. Love it. Absolutely love it. Such a spiritual celebration every year. 

2. Charlie Adams' Goal - This was simply amazing. Even if you don't like soccer, one has to appreciate this absolute boot and heads up play by Adams. 

3. NFL Official Sarah Thomas - One could be really cynical about this, especially after the NFL's dealings with women and domestic abuse, but kudos to the NFL on closing the wide gap on gender equity in sports. 

3 Down

1. Kenyan College Shooting - Not only does this situation super sad, but I have to be honest, i makes me very mad when it isn't top news in our country the way it is around the world. 

2. Yemen Prisoners Free - As if the world isn't in enough chaos, over 250 dangerous prisoners with links to Al-Qaeda were freed this past week. Ugh...

3. Queens Women Bomb Plot - Scary. Shake my head kind of scary.

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!"
