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.

3 Up 1. Protection of Same-Sex Marriage - Well, what do you know? Our elected officials CAN work together to get important policies completed that accurately and democratically represent the people. Cynicism aside, it's good to see this bill get passed. Imagine the huge step back that this would have been. 2. Britney Griner Home - I honestly don't care about the politics around this story. Griner needed to come home. And I'm glad she finally is.  3. Impact Wrestling Main Event - Everything that was "Speedball" Mike Bailey vs. "The Walking Weapon" Josh Alexander on this week's episode of Impact Wrestling was what makes pro wrestling so great. Both guys put on a classic that lasted almost an hour, and it was one of the best matches I've enjoyed in a long time. Kudos to both men.  3 Down 1. Grant Wahl - It's the kind of story that is super emotional for the following reasons: 1) Wahl was the premiere journalist in the soccer real; 2) Wahl was be

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/15/23

3 Up 1. Healthcare Debt Removed from Credit Score - This is a small win in a direction that just seems, well...reasonable. Healthcare is expensive and not exactly the fault of an individual's ability to handle their finances responsibly. The subtle change (with restrictions) is a nice addition that ought to help many battling health issues, yet not derail their entire personal life.  2. Alyssa Thompson - The teenage phenom comes off gaining some International play but becoming the first overall pick in the NWSL. Thompson's future is SO bright, and this should be part of that narrative when we marvel at her journey.  3. Ozone Layer Recovery - For years, as a kid, I remember hearing that "we were constantly damaging the Ozone layer". Many thanks to Captain Planet and the Planeteers for that insight. I'm glad to see there has been some progress there.  3 Down 1. Brazil Democracy - It's a shame to see politicians around the world pull from our history with senti

3 Up 1. Bad Bunny - Congratulations (and major breakthrough props) are in order for Bad Bunny who made history with the first Spanish-Language Album of the Year nomination. The dude has been crushing it with major cross-over appeal - and yes, he's a helluva wrestler.  2. Taylor Swift - This could be a down because of the entire Ticketmaster ordeal, but Swift gets the "Up" solely because only she can break Ticketmaster like this. The star power continues to be amazing.  3. FIFA World Cup - Sure, there is plenty of negatives to get into here, but the event itself is amazing. I'm ready to get caught up in it all.  3 Down 1. Iran Protestors - The nation is in political unrest and many protesters being caught are being sentenced to harsh penalties, or worse, death. Just more instability  2. U.S. Mass Shootings - We just continue to give access to individuals who shouldn't have guns. We've become so numb to this. What have we become?  Prayers, comfort, and positive

3 Up  1. Rail Workers Agreement - The nation avoiding a major - major! - supply chain issue when the Rail Workers union settled their dispute. In the process we learned that these workers had one - one! - sick day per year. That's absolutely insane. How could you not root for the union here to win? And they did.  2. Protecting Same-Sex/Interracial Marriage - It's amazing that we have to politicize and advocate as people for these kid of things, but here we are.  3. World Cup - Sports biggest event continues on with some thrilling games and upsets. Selfishly giving some love to the US Men's National Team who survived Group Play and made it to the Knockout stages.  3 Down 1. "Terminating the Constitution" - Look, I'm so over bashing Donald Trump. That's my neutral take on it all. My political take is this, how did we get here? Candidates are calling for ripping up the document that we base everything off of? Again, how did we get here?  2. Hate Speech on Twi
