Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/21/19


3 Up

1. Easter - He. Is. Risen!

2. Bernie Fox Town Hall - I'm not a big Bernie guy. However, much props to Sanders who did a Fox News town hall on not only held his own, but actually got some interesting crowd responses. IN this crazy political culture, it would be nice to see some "cross-examination" - so-to-speak, so we can get some real discussion on serious issues.

3. BTS YouTube Record - I've never heard of this group until this story caught my attention this week. But apparently, K-Pop is real, and BTS' video release set a new YouTube record with most views over a 24 hour span (76 million!!).

3 Down

1. Sri Lanka Bombings - This story is so incredibly sad. Over 200 people killed. On Easter Sunday. The world does some horrific things, and this is an example of that.

2. Denver School Closings - I will NEVER forget the Colombine High School Shooting. In middle school, I was home sick, and watched the entire thing unfold on my TV, frightened at such a possibility. Today, it's a common thing. 20 years later, we watched ALL Denver schools close due to threats, and a woman, "inspired" by the act, leave Florida, head to Colorado, and purchase weapons with the intent to do the same. Again, what is this world?

3. "Let the Boys Play" - Just when MLB gets it right by finally allowing it's players to show some personality, it hit Tim Anderson with a one-game suspension for doing just that. Seriously?

1 Unknown

1. Mueller Report - Of course, those in support of Trump are hoping to find anything to avoid "collusion" possibilities, and those against him, are looking for anything that implies it. That's the unfortunate reality when it comes to what this report really means. But to be honest, it's amazing to me that our President admits that there was Russian interference, yet, has never called out Russia for it as much as he has the American media. But whatevs.

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Hustle (2022)

What is it about? A long-time scout, Stanley Sugarman, grinds out the life of an NBA scout and the politics of the NBA by taking a chance on a prospect he believes in to change both of their lives.  Who is in it? Adam Sandler - Stanley Sugarman Juancho Hernangomez - Bo Cruz Queen Latifah - Teresa Sugarman Favorite Scene:   Kermit and Bo line up at center court and Kermit begins the trash talk to get inside of Bo's head, eventually taking him off his game.  Favorite Quote:   "I'll say one last inspirational thing to you: they can't kill you if you're already dead." Review:  Hustle sat on "My List" on my Netflix account for quite a long time. Parked on the couch in the middle of the night with a newborn, and jonesing for some hoops, I dove in on what I read (and heard from others) was a "really good film". I'll give away the suspense, I thought Hustle was decent. It felt too cliche and had little depth, but still, a really good film.  The
