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.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/21/23

3 Up 1. Jim Brown's Legacy - It almost felt like it went without notice (maybe, just for me?), but the great Jim Brown left us this week. A fantastic athlete, with a more prominent voice and presence, Brown reshaped and redefined the standard for using your platform, and of course, expanding your influence.  2. Indoor Farms - As our natural resources became scarce, in some ways, alarmingly damaged (that's another discussion for another day), we've seen some amazing alternatives come about. The presence of indoor farms has been such, especially this precise farm in Compton that has produced 4.5 million pounds of leaves. Most importantly, is a resource within the community that was not available before.  3. $11B Rural Clean Energy Project - I'm sure they'll be some political retort to this, because well, there always is. But bringing clean energy to many rural areas of the United States is very much part of the issue in advancing our clean energy. On the surface, it

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/28/23

3 Up 1. Memorial Day Weekend - There are a lot of people who gave their lives for the freedoms we enjoy. It's more than a three-day weekend, or the unofficial start to summer - take some time and appreciate the many lives given to be where we are.  2. Tina Turner - An absolute favorite of mine, Turner leaves us with nothing but awesome songs, memories, and a vibe and energy that was unmatched.  3. Debt Limit Deal - Well, one week later and I think I understand the entire debt limit stuff. Nonetheless, we're giving it an "Up" as it's settled. Crisis averted? Go America.  3 Down 1. Target Rescinds Pride - Our society has become ridiculous. After conservatives railed liberals for "cancel culture", the right has doubled down with threats at Target regarding their Pride Month displays. All of this follows a Bud Light ban. We've officially become a country where we all cancel what we don't like. So much for discourse.  2. Catholic Church in Illinois -

End of the 22-23 Knicks Season

Josh Hart was wide open at the top of the key.  Julius Randle just didn't feel like the target of that pass.  Jalen Brunson turning the ball over felt like an apropos.  Regardless, the end of the 2022-2023 New York Knicks Season is here and it hurts. It definitely hurts. Yet, for the first time in SOOOOOOOOO LONGGGGGG, I have what's called, hope. Hope!  As the youngest team in the NBA Finals, and one that fell just two games short of the Eastern Conference Finals, this team - heck, this organization! - is very much on the right path.  This year was fun, and at the same time rewarding. Next year will surely come with some expectations, many of which have already started, including the latest need for a superstar. We all know how that goes. There is already a lot of dumb mock trades and ridiculous narratives that are driving me nuts.  Regardless, it was a good year. We very much need to say that more.  Here are five really salient thoughts as we head toward the off-season.  Jalen

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/15/20

  3 Up 1. Coronavirus Vaccine? - It's here...sort of. Regardless of the semantics, the announcement of a vaccine produced by Phizer that is 90% effective - Flu Shots are 40-60% effective!! - has some serious promise. As the virus hits a second wave here in the Fall, the news coming from big Pharma is starting to make this pandemic feel like it's in the 4th quarter. Regardless, don't be stupid - wear your mask.  2. Michelle Ng - THE first female General Manager in baseball! I just love it. Let's forget that Ng has tons of experience and success throughout her career and has only been given this opportunity at 52 when farrrrrrrrrr more white males with less have been given GM opportunities as early as in their late twenties. No, no, I won't remind you of the inequalities that are at play here. I'm just happy Ng is given her opportunity, and that baseball is progressing forward - something it always struggles with.  3. Chris Nikic - You want an inspiring story? Ho
