Sunday Sundown Rundown - 3/6/16

3 Up

1. UFC 196 - What a double main event! I'm pretty sure that Dana White lost lots of money when it came to the endings of both fights, but the fights themselves, and the shocking endings were very, very entertaining. Probably the best double main event I've ever seen in MMA. 

2. Norma - This story is fantastic. A 90 year old woman named Norma who has been recently diagnosed with cancer, decided to skip treatment to take a long road trip across the United States. There is so much to learn from in this story, which makes it all the more awesome. 

3. Peyton Manning Retirement - It's just felt right at this time. It's always terrible watching a great athlete struggle in the latter years of his career. But the fact that Peyton won the big one on his way out, and is leaving on that note, is a nice bow on the end. 

3 Down

1. Presidential Race- I'm not sure what it is, but the Presidential race on both sides have gotten to the point where I am exhausted. The race is now ridiculous, and no longer one of integrity. I actually fear for the options we as Americans will have. Just bloggin'.

2. LeBron Rumors - So here we go again with the rumors of LeBron leaving Cleveland again. And of course, the sporting talking heads are now ALL about speculating his next move. Ugh. 

3. OJ Simpson Trial Revival - It's been that type of week in the shoddy/ridiculous news realm of life. A knife was found, and a 24 year old case may have possibly been turned around? Ummm, yeah, thanks for the loud noise. Of course, NOTHING to see/hear/read here.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/11/24

3 Up 1. Super Bowl - That was an entertaining game! I'm definitely your football casual, so appropriately adjust your take in reading this. I rarely dive into the Super Bowl other than for social interest and custom, but I genuinely was glued to my seat watching this event - game and halftime performance. Well done, NFL.  Also, a record of 123M people watching it - that's pretty good, too.  1a. Patrick Mahomes/Chiefs - Congratulations to the Chiefs on a rarity in the NFL - back-to-back titles! Even more so, is the props towards Mahomes. Again, a super causal here, but that dude pulls me in. He's amazing.  1b. Usher Performance - I was all about it. Amazingly, I'm now the age of the target demographic of the NFL for these halftime shows. Regardless, Usher killed it!  2. Annie Ray - We often don't see these Grammys handed out, but kudos to Annie Ray for receiving a Grammy for her amazing work in music education. Definitely give this a quick read.  3. Record Stocks -
