Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/15/16

3 Up 

1. MLB - Baseball had a good week - minus a small hiccup to end it, more on that in a bit. From Max Scherzer's 20 strikeout game, the moment of Bartolo Colon hitting a home run, the story of Matt Bush's comeback, and the Play Ball initiative, baseball fans had plenty of moments to enjoy. 

2. Steph Curry - Oh you know, not playing a game for two weeks, then returning and dropping seventeen points in an overtime win - a new record - yeah, no big deal for this dude who is absolutely unreal. 

3. Boy Showing Dog Training Videos - This boy's parents told him he was responsible for training his puppy so, why not show the dog puppy training videos from YouTube, right? Smart kid, and a super adorable picture. 

3 Down 

1. Auction of Gun That Killed Trayvon Martin - This is just utterly ridiculous and disrespectful. I can't even imagine what and how the family of Trayvon Martin must feel. 

2. Texas Rangers - Cowards. Such cowards. First of all, get over the bat flip! It was awesome, and you - YOU! - gave it up. You also lost the series. Secondly, waiting until the final at-bat between both teams for the season to retaliate with a HBP, and then sucker punching the Bautista? Super cowardly act. 

3. Meteorologist Shaming - Who are the people who call or e-mail a news station to complain about the dress the meteorologist is wearing? Seriously? Are there not other important things to do in your life?

Turning 39 - One Last Go-Around in My 30s

I turn 39 today, and everything I read in regards to such a "milestone" is that it's dealing with the anxiety of turning 40. The big 4-0!  Yet, I sit here punching the keys completely unaware of fears, trepidations, and emotions towards the future. Instead, I find myself immersed in the present - in exactly that, 39. I also find myself slightly looking back on the road to get here - my final year in my 30s.  I look back on my thoughts on turning 30 ( Praying on a Cool Thirty ) and, ironically, I very much vibe and can feel the essence of where I was at the time. At the time, turning thirty meant a whoooooooooooole sort of different expectations and responsibilities. I am in that same place - a center of gratitude for the journey. My 30s have been a ride.  For me, I became a father, and I lost my father. I lost one of my best friends, yet, I gained another in my son - and then a second one just recently. I finished coursework on my second Masters degree, and I also watch
