Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/10/16

3 Up

1. El Chapo Capture - When you read and watch documentaries on El Chapo and his rise as a drug kingpin, you understand not only the need for officials to capture him, but to get knowledge on how much our Southern border is being exploited. And yes, where are all those tunnels?!

2. MLB Hall of Fame - As stated this week, it was really good to see Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza get the nod into the Hall. For me, especially Griffey, who I think helped revolutionize and inspire a generation of fans. 

3. Wrestle Kingdom 10 - My goodness! After a a rather blah 2015, pro wrestling got off to an amazing start with the New Japan Pro Wrestling show on January 4th. Absolutely great show, especially the final three matches. 

3 Down

1. North Korea's H-Bomb - These guys are nuts over in North Korea, and of course, now they are experimenting with bombs and stuff. Just great. As if the world doesn't have enough problems in the international affairs scene.  

2. Doctor's Without Borders Bombed in Yemen - It always saddens me to hear of stories in which doctors and other staff working for Doctors without Borders are killed. They are such valuable people to society based on their skills, and they use it to help others without the proper care, and it just ends...like that. Ugh... The World is so wicked. 

3. Attempted Cop Murder - This clown attempted to murder a police officer in Philadelphia in the name of ISIS. So sick of this garbage...

2 Unbelievable

1. $1.3 Billion Jackpot - The idea that I can simply play the lotto and win 1.3 Billion dollars is craaaaazy! I can't even wrap my mind around it. Of course, my ticket didn't even land a number on Saturday night. Not. One. Number. And yes, if I win, I'll still produce the DP. Just in case you're wondering. I'll start giving away stuff like the other fancy blogs. Who wants batting gloves?!

2. Steph Curry's Swag - Steph Curry is now doing the sort of things only MJ did. I can't even imagine having 100% confidence in any shot I take that I turn around to mock the opposing bench before the ball goes through the net. Unbelievable.

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!"

Quick Ponder: Free and Guarded

Stay free. But keep the gate to  your peace, guarded.

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
