Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/3/18


3 Up 

1. Mamadou Gassama - Gassama thrilled us all this week by scaling a building to save a child in Paris. No words can truly explain he feat, you simply have to watch the video. However, props to France for giving this guy citizenship. However, it is quite interesting that it takes such efforts for some to look upon immigration in a different light. 

2. LeBron James - Is it me, or are you also torn watching LeBron in these NBA Playoffs. Amazed every step of the way by his greatness. However, sort of sad to watch how much he has to do just keep his team competitive. 

3. Karthik Nammani - I've done a few spelling bees in my early education career and they're incredibly hard. Kudos to the 2018 Scrippts Spelling Bee champ! 

3 Down

1. Puerto Rico - If the reports are true that over 4,000 fatalities happened, that is very awakening. However, it's still unbelievably sad how little our country has done for the people in Puerto Rico. 

2. Samantha Bee - Stupid comment. Fire her. Remove her show. And let's move on and stop saying dumb things. Can we do that, please? 

3. JR Smith - Duuuuuuuuude?! How do you NOT know the situation at play? It'll definitely go down as one of the biggest mental mistakes in sports history. 

1 What?!

1. Michael Rotondo - This story is just incredibly weird. Give it a read and be prepared...

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!"

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
