Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/2/19


3 Up

1. Loyola High School (Detroit) - In a nation where education inequality is something rarely found in inner city environments, Loyola High School in Detroit, Michigan not only boasts a graduating class that will ALL being accepted to college - Yes, 100% of the graduating class - but, the school emphasizes community work and strong character. Much props to the staff and administration at Loyola H.S.

2. Toronto Raptors - Sure, the squad is in the NBA Finals. But most impressive is the fact that the entire Toronto Raptors roster has NO lottery picks. None. Not one. That's damn impressive.

3. Women's College World Series - I love the College World Series, but there is something special going on in the world of softball and everything that has been the women's College World Series. So much drama, and so much fun to witness thus far.

3 Down

1. Virgina Beach Mass Shooting - Awful. Just, awful. When is enough, well...enough?

2. Midwest Tornadoes - Not much has been made about it, but the crazy weather ravaging the midwest and ruining lives has been horrific. Especially so in Ohio. My heart goes out to so many who have lost their homes, and possibly more.

3. MLB Guarding Nets - Hey, MLB! Extend the nets. Don't wait for a fatality. Don't. Just get it done NOW.

1 Annoying

1. Drake Coverage - I'm not blaming Drake for his antics during these NBA Finals. He can't help himself. Really, he's been doing this for so long. It's why he's gained such a following. This one falls on the media for the constant camera shots, discussions, and references to anything Drake. Really, it's not Drake who bothers me, it's the idea that he's getting more attention than the people who should have it. You know, like the Toronto Raptors? Just blogging...

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/11/24

3 Up 1. Super Bowl - That was an entertaining game! I'm definitely your football casual, so appropriately adjust your take in reading this. I rarely dive into the Super Bowl other than for social interest and custom, but I genuinely was glued to my seat watching this event - game and halftime performance. Well done, NFL.  Also, a record of 123M people watching it - that's pretty good, too.  1a. Patrick Mahomes/Chiefs - Congratulations to the Chiefs on a rarity in the NFL - back-to-back titles! Even more so, is the props towards Mahomes. Again, a super causal here, but that dude pulls me in. He's amazing.  1b. Usher Performance - I was all about it. Amazingly, I'm now the age of the target demographic of the NFL for these halftime shows. Regardless, Usher killed it!  2. Annie Ray - We often don't see these Grammys handed out, but kudos to Annie Ray for receiving a Grammy for her amazing work in music education. Definitely give this a quick read.  3. Record Stocks -
