Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/17/16

3 Up

1. Andrew Miller - Who is hotter than Andrew Miller right now in all of sports? I miss Miller terribly on my team, but watching what he is doing this October for the Tribe is absolutely historic and satisfying. 

2. Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jensen - Both of these dudes have been absolutely tremendous this week by strapping the Dodgers on their backs and pitching some tough innings. From Game 5 of the NLDS, to tonight's Game 2 of the NLCS, both Kershaw and Jensen have been rock solid. 

3. Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon - I'm not a huge fan of Alec Baldwin, but the job that he has been doing as Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live has been absolutely tremendous. It's been downright hilarious. Ditto for McKinnon as Hillary Clinton. 

3 Down

1. Second Presidential Debate - What. A. Disaster. Lucky for us, we get debate number three this week. Yay. Ugh. 

2. Tyson Gay's Daughter - Such a sad story to hear about Tyson Gay's daughter, Trinity, who was killed at the young age of 15. Gun violence in this country continues to dish heartbreaking news after heartbreaking news. 

3. Buffalo Bills Fans - Just when you thought white privilege couldn't get any worse, we get Bills fans who showed just how bad it is with ridiculous t-shirts made and comments dished about Colin Kaepernick. Yup, that's "Murica".

CM Punk, somehow, makes a bid for another moment-of-the-year candidate for wrestling fans with another "return" - his second over the last four years. This one, back to the WWE, in what felt like the most improbable of opportunities. But as we've learned, WWE truly is where you "never say never".  You can go in so many directions on this one. But without going too far down a road that hasn't developed or we have some headlights on, it's quite clear that WWE is absolutely crushing the wrestling business right now, and adding anything - or anyone - to that continued record success is the mission. They. Are. Not. Settled.  Second, the unveil I thought was great. Just absolute pro wrestling at its peak. As soon as the guitar riff to "Cult of Personality" hit and the familiar graphics hit the screens, my immedia

Quick Ponder: Gratitude

  My sense of gratitude explodes within my heart when I cease expressing it through the tangible, but rather through, time and moments.  Happy Thanksgiving, all.
