Would You Rather: Questions 101-110


101. Would you rather go through life as Steve Bartman or Scott Norwood?

While Steve Bartman somehow was let off the hook, that dude literally had to go into hiding following the 2003 NLCS. I'm going Norwood here.

102. Would you rather only have Joel Embiid on the court or on social media?

While Joel Embiid on Twitter is indeed a national treasure in its own right, there is no substance to Embiid on Twitter without Embiid on the floor. Plus, the guy is a joy to watch on the basketball floor. Embiid on the Court is the answer here.

103. Would you rather be a great player with a trashed legacy or be a good player that few will remember?

In no way do I want to be Roger Clemens or Barry Bonds. Trashed legacies last forever and are brought up constantly in a negative light. I prefer to be that athlete people randomly bring up to make a positive point in a debate. Hey, you remember....yeah, that guy was good. Sooooo underrated! 

104. Would you rather listen to Mike Francesa or Stephen A. Smith for 8-hours straight?

Good grief, either way, I'm in for pain. I'll go with Francesa. While he's outright arrogant and really has limited knowledge on what he is talking about, the caricature of Francesa - a big reason on why he is famous, is hilarious to listen to. Stephen A.'s yelling gets tiring fast.

105. Would you rather have Johnny Manziel or Yasiel Puig as your teammate?

Give me Puig. He shows up, and at times, can help your team win. Not sure Manziel has done that since becoming a pro.

106. Would you rather take one punch by an in-his-prime Mike Tyson, or 30-seconds (no stoppage) in the Octagon with Brock Lesnar?

I want to do the one punch and get it over with, but Tyson could leave permanent brain damage. I'm going 30-seconds with The Beast, and I'll run around, before getting caught, and quickly taking my blows curled up against the cage while praying that the longest 30 seconds of my life ends.

107. Would you rather try to tackle Marshawn Lynch or try to hit a Clayton Kershaw curveball?

Kershaw curveball all day. That would be fun, and provides some bragging rights. I have no interest in tackling anyone, much less a dude like Marshawn Lynch. No thank you.

108. Would you rather have a career like Robert Horry or Charles Barkley?

Yikes. I hate to say this, but Robert Horry. I don't give into the pressure of having to win a title we place on NBA players these days, but Horry had it good! 7 titles, and some big shots en route to them all. I've never been a dominant athlete in any level, always a role player. I can relate and identify with that role. Give me Big Shot Rob.

109. Would you rather stand on the mound at Yankee Stadium, or hit a jumpshot on the floor of Madison Square Garden?

Both are awesome. But nothing beats the mound at Yankee Stadium (old and/or new).

110. Would you rather have your child be drafted by your favorite team's rival, or follow a sport of un-interest for a full-year?

This is easy. I couldn't follow golf or NASCAR, for an entire year. That would really be enjoyable. If my son were to be drafted and then play for the Boston Red Sox, I would be cool with that. At that point, I would root for the Red Sox...you know, temporarily.

Predictions and Wild Guesses for the 2021-22 NBA Season

For the first time in as long as I can remember, my New York Knicks have become a bit of a sanctuary for my sports fandom. Everything that has been the New York Yankees summer, and recent elimination, just begs for a proverbial turning of the page. The NBA season is that new chapter.  The Knicks season is a bit of a conundrum, as they've gotten much better, BUT, so did the rest of the Eastern Conference. I'm feeling confident, but I'm also anxious for more good basketball and hoping that last year wasn't some fluky gift to us Knicks for our patience prior to last season.  Whatevs...nonetheless, here are my predictions for the upcoming NBA season.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/24/21

3 Up 1. Science and Research - Look, I'm not trying to get into any debates or start trouble with this selection. I'm just giving props to the men and women who continue to develop these vaccines - and now approved booster shots - that help fight off this terrible virus that has plagued over the past 18 months. Some countries still don't have an option when it comes to vaccines - we're onto booster shots, and can "choose". Perspective and privilege are needed sometimes.  2. Col. Wang Yaping - Give it up to Yaping who in six weeks will become the first Chinese woman to walk in space. OF course, she is receiving tons of backlash from the media - but hey, did we expect anything else? 

CM Punk's Return - Perfect Timing for the Symbol of Anti-WWE

Looooooooook in my eyes, what do you see?! The lyrics to Cult of Personality, especially that first bar,  never felt so fitting for CM Punk as it did last night.  For the most part, everything that is CM Punk's return to wrestling last night at AEW Rampage ties directly into my latest thoughts on pro wrestling - the company is making it must-see destination television, an element desperately needed from pro wrestling.  Last night was incredible as again, it was another moment that made wrestling feel alive - with a wild and energetic pulse. It was one of the coolest moments in pro wrestling that you knew was coming, expected, anticipated, and it was everything and more. Again, MUST-SEE television. That's hard to do.  For me, it wasn't just Punk's return to pro wrestling, but the mere presence and voice of his inclusion in today's space. We know that Punk can deliver on the microphone - probably his best and most signature attribute. We also know that yes, he can

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/10/21

3 Up 1. Moderna Vaccine to Low Income Nations - In a world where the idea of "pandemic" now feels like a state of mind or the privilege of belief, Moderna has decided to aim its efforts in getting at least 1 billion doses to low-income countries the COVID vaccine. I'll save the "vaccine" chat for another time - but this is pretty awesome by Moderna. And oh yeah, highly needed.  2. Candace Parker and Diana Taurasi - Two absolute legends of the WNBA had some legacy-cementing moments this week. Parker lead her hometown Chicago Sky into the WNBA finals, and Taurasi, was named the GOAT of the WNBA by fans. Because well, she is. Congrats to both.  3. Netlfix's On My Block - For the second week in a row I'm putting a personal - and admittedly, biased - selection in the "Up" section. One of my favorite shows by Netflix, On My Block , released its fourth and final season, and yes, I binged it on my daily commute home. Gonna miss the crew from Freeridge.
