Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/2/16

3 Up 

1. Dee Gordon's Home Run - From paying tribute to Jose Fernandez by hitting right handed for the first pitch, to turning to the left side and blasting one out, this moment couldn't even have been scripted. What a really, really cool moment. Baseball is so special in that way. 

2. Homeless Man Rewarded - This is great story. The man who found the New Jersey bombs in the trash helped with acquiring an apartment and a job. I'm always a fan of these humanitarian stories. Especially, one which helps rewards those who may have saved lives with his actions. 

3. Bobby Lashley - With all of the rumors and speculation surrounding TNA, Bound For Glory still happened, and what once Lashley delivered. The dude, right now, is my front runner for Dome Pondering Male Wrestler of the Year. 

3 Down

1. South Carolina School Shooting - What is wrong with us? I have no more words to attempt to navigate these situations. We need to get it together. My heart goes out to the six year old boy's family whose life was snuffed out because of this nonsense. 

2. Politicians - From my thoughts earlier this week (Thoughts on First 2016 Presidential Debate), you know that I thought it was terrible. And there is the news regarding Donald Trump's tax situation, and then Rudy Guiliani stating that all married people cheat to defend his actions - it's all too much. Politics in America, for me at least, is at an all-time level of disgrace. Everyone. All of them. 

3. Colombia Vote - The country is in turmoil, and the latest vote to reject a peace deal creates more uncertainty for the long time split. It's easy to see both sides of the coin, but an unstable Colombia is not a healthy one for the world, especially South America.

Imagine, if we can see the dents and scratches, the smashes and chaos,  on the daily armor, each of us put on. Just imagine. 

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 -
