Sunday Sundown Rundown - 7/23/17

3 Up

1. Boy w/Double Hand Transplant - This is an amazing story! Not only is the young man the first to receive a double hand transplant, but he has functioning mobility in both hands. Better yet - he can now swing a bat! How cool is that?! And even better, what does this mean for others in the future? So cool. 

2. Aaron Judge's Blast - Judge has been giving Yankee fans - and baseball fans - thrills all year long with the blasts he's been sending into orbit. His latest home run in Seattle, which broke STATCAST, was epic, and will surely be one that will have mythical proportions in the future. 

3. What is America To Me - I love the opinion section of the New York Times - naturally as a blogger, why wouldn't I, right? Regardless, give this one a read regarding immigration, and the real life results of an issue we think of in just politics. 

3 Down

1. John McCain - It's tough hearing that the senator has been diagnosed with brain cancer. Here is to hoping he battles, and defeats this nasty, ugly disease. 

2. San Antonio Smuggling - The story coming out of San Antonio Texas is troubling, and disheartening. It sheds light on another perspective on immigration as many are smuggled here against their will, and that US Citizens are behind it. I can't even imagine the many other trucks, or various other ways, of others with similar results. So incredibly sad. 

3. Chester Bennington - Linkin Park definitely broke many barriers and even crossed cultural lines. RIP Bennington, your music will live on. 

2 SMH

1. OJ Simpson Parole - Was I the only one who couldn't believe the world once again surrounded OJ Simpson? And likewise, was I the only who couldn't believe that OJ had not changed over the past nine year? "Never been in conflict?" "Everyone loves me". Wow. October should be another media storm. God bless the Goldman family. I can only imagine the emotions his Mr. Goldman is going through.

2. Kyrie Irving - Talk about blowing up the NBA scene. Kyrie shocked the world, and now so many questions are up in the air, and so many domino effects are in place. On thing is for sure, the gap between Golden State and everyone else just got bigger.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/9/21

3 Up 1. Justice for Ahmaud Arbery - It won't bring Ahmaud back. It won't right the wrong done. I'm not even sure if it provides solace for his loved ones. However, having those three men finish their lives in prison is the most that could have been done. Kudos to Judge Timothy Walmsley and the point he made by holding a minute of silence to prove it was just a fraction of how long they chased Arbery.  2. Sidney Poitier - I learned about Poitier through a film class in High School. To this day, I'm thankful for a teacher to recognize the greatness of black actors and the contributions of others to the entertainment industry. From "To Sir with Love" to "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", I adored his work, and him as a person. A life well-lived.
