Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/26/17

3 Up

1. Moonlight - I haven't watched it as of it, but I'm super happy for those connected for Moonlight for two distinct reasons: 1) Diversity and Inclusion!; 2) Watching an indie movie prove that you don't need large budgets to make great films. 

2. Jordan Horowitz - So yeah, there was a snafu, the kind that really is the epitome of event management 101.Obviously, that's what the world will focus on, because, that's what we do now. But, Jordan deserves plenty of credit for having his dreams crushed on national television, but he handled it with poise, class, and honor. Awesome job, Jordan. 

3. Spring Weather - How awesome was the weather this week?! And my goodness, baseball is back! College baseball. Spring Training. People are playing catch, taking swings! I'm so happy!!!!


3 Down

1. White House Media Ban - I try to give politics a break from this section every week. I really do. Even this week when I shared a conference space with CPAC. But, then the White House goes ahead and bans specific sectors of the media. Good grief. 

2. Racist on Plane - So some clown asked a Pakistani couple if they had a bomb in their bags while they placed them in the overhead bin. Fortunately, this clown was removed from the plane. Assclown. 

3. Giraffe Video - I read this story, and it was stupid. People need to channel their energies and advocacy into more important ordeals.

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

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!"
