Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/28/15

3 Up

1. Lara Logan - After her near death experience while reporting in Egypt in 2011, where she was beaten and sexually assaulted by a mob, Lara Logan is rumored to be ready to head back to her post as a reporter for CBS News. Kudos to Logan on the road to recovery. And for returning to her career. 

2. Jake Arrieta - Another near perfect game on Sunday Night Baseball, but Arrieta will settle for the consolation of another win towards his 21-7 record. Oh yeah, he also hit a home run. Is he not the NL Cy Young Award winner? 

3. Lunar Eclipse - How cool was the moon tonight? I won't even begin to describe what type of eclipse it was. All I know is that it was really cool to see. 

3 Down

1. Yogi Berra - It was sad to hear of the death of Yogi Berra this week. To hear of his accomplishments within baseball and what he meant to the game was a nice reminder, especially for a thirty year old like myself who may sometimes think of some of these guys as just old lore. He lived a quality enough life where many are discussing him as a person rather than his accomplishments. Thanks for all of it, Yogi! (Remembering Yogi Berra)

2. Freddie Gray Story - Just when things have died down in this realm of social issues, we are now getting details regarding what was told by some Police Officers, and what Freddie Gray may have said to police officers. Such a mess. 

3. Jonathan Papelbon - He's a good pitcher. But man, this guy is such a clown. Choking your team's best player, the potential NL MVP? Not a good idea. Doing so after coming to the team mid-season? Not a good idea? Engaging this fight after the Nationals were eliminated from the playoffs? Not a good idea. Need I say more? 

1 What Are You Doing? 

1. Brandon Marshall Lateral - Making a catch and then throwing the football back for a lateral? C'mon man? Seriously, c'mon, bruh. After a 2-0 start, my Jets were pretty much very Jet-like today.

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!"
