Sunday Sundown Rundown - 12/17/17


3 Up

1. Black Women in Alabama - First, thank you. You saved us all from witnessing another downfall from decent standards in America. And of course, I hope this movement continues to move forward as there are many black women, if unified and mobilized, and seriously change many things in this country of ours. 

2. Black Thought - Ok, so the 10 second freestyle this dude ripped off earlier this week was not only insanely talented, but he delivered some truth. Super impressive, you know, if you're into hip hop. 

3. Giancarlo Stanton - Giving the new Yankee the nod here for his honest thoughts in his Yankee introduction. Some may not like it, but I found it refreshing, especially when much of what he said is something all baseball fans are aware of. 

3 Down

1. 49% in Alabama - While the Alabama victory was nice to see, as I stated in my post regarding the Doug Jones win, who in the world are these people STILL voting for Roy Moore? It just shows you the mindset that is still out there, and of course, still powerful. 

2. Jerry Richardson - So, let me get this right. Colin Kaepernick, was pushed out of the league and is considered un-American by NFL Owners. Yet, now one of the NFL's owners, is selling his team, the Carolina Panthers, amidst strong allegations of sexual misconduct and racism. The NFL man...

3. Failed Terrorist Attempt - So, we made jokes about how it annoyed our commutes, but seriously, what if this went off as this man planned? So sick of terrorism, and these people who are looking to harm others. I can only dream of a world where this stuff is over. 

1 Crazy

1. Keaton Jones Video - First he was a sensation for being "bullied", then we learn he was in fact the one doing it, and much more. We also learned his mother is a white supremacist and that for some reason, they collected over $60K from a GoFundMe account. America is crazy.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/15/22

3 Up 1. California Church Heroes - It's soooooooo weird that the top spot is a result of something so horrific as our ongoing domestic terrorism problem of mass shootings. Still, the courage shown by the five members who stopped the shooter deserves it. Those individuals tackled the shooter and tied him up with an electric cord, while wounded.  It's so tough to fathom that those possibilities are within the realm of your Sunday worship, within the sanctity of your church.  But such is America... 2. Olivia Rodrigo & Drake - Rodrigo continues to reap rewards on an excellent album in 2021 as she topped the Billboard Music Awards with seven awards. There was also Drake who I'm beginning to sense we won't really appreciate his body of work until he's near the end of his career. But yeah, Drake poured in a few more for the legacy debates and discussions.

Dope Sports Threads - Nike City Connect Series (Kansas City Royals)

The Kansas City Royals' City Connect uniforms were a design that I wholeheartedly looked forward to. The Royals' current uniforms and aesthetics are some of the best in baseball, and for a city like Kansas City, it just feels like there was enough room creatively to do something historically enlightening (more so something many do not already know about the city), or a simple approach that builds off of the current design.  To be honest, it may sound simple, but the use of "blue" by the Royals is fantastic.  What we got is a concept that continued the awesome blue approach, with a design concept that is just as cool as their everyday threads. However, where I feel disappointed is the safe approach to this. I would have loved to see them lean into the rich history of the Negro Leagues that is Kansas City - a team (and city) able to do so more than others. That could have been really cool, enriching, meaningful, and somewhat different from the norm - maybe even an ode t

Today, and Someday

Today,  I push to leave on time, to place my ambition on rewind,  to conquer a list,  to feed the drive, to escape amiss Someday,  I'll work to return home soon, with purpose in tune,  to pursue the extent,  to feed my heart, for Today, I repent. 

Royal Rumble 2022 Review: "Struggles of the Current Product Came Glaring Through the Cracks"

The Royal Rumble is easily my favorite wrestling event of the year - solely for the sake of the match, the aura of the pageantry, and all of the drama that comes with it. Nothing is like that buzzer going off, the surprise entrant, and that possible encounter we've been waiting for, or we thought would never happen. It's pro wrestling's All-Star Game in a nutshell.   The event carries so much nostalgia for this wrestling fan, that no matter how bad I think the WWE product currently is - and believe me, I'm no longer avidly watching it - I will still plan my weekend around the event. Unfortunately, this year's Rumble provided that nostalgia, but the sheer struggles of the current product - again, at least to and for this fan - came glaring through the cracks.  Overall, I found the event to be fun. Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns was awesome. Mickie James getting her flowers was super cool, you can't replicate that big fight feel of Lashley vs. Lesnar, and of course
