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 - 5/15/22

3 Up 1. California Church Heroes - It's soooooooo weird that the top spot is a result of something so horrific as our ongoing domestic terrorism problem of mass shootings. Still, the courage shown by the five members who stopped the shooter deserves it. Those individuals tackled the shooter and tied him up with an electric cord, while wounded.  It's so tough to fathom that those possibilities are within the realm of your Sunday worship, within the sanctity of your church.  But such is America... 2. Olivia Rodrigo & Drake - Rodrigo continues to reap rewards on an excellent album in 2021 as she topped the Billboard Music Awards with seven awards. There was also Drake who I'm beginning to sense we won't really appreciate his body of work until he's near the end of his career. But yeah, Drake poured in a few more for the legacy debates and discussions.

Dope Sports Threads - Nike City Connect Series (Kansas City Royals)

The Kansas City Royals' City Connect uniforms were a design that I wholeheartedly looked forward to. The Royals' current uniforms and aesthetics are some of the best in baseball, and for a city like Kansas City, it just feels like there was enough room creatively to do something historically enlightening (more so something many do not already know about the city), or a simple approach that builds off of the current design.  To be honest, it may sound simple, but the use of "blue" by the Royals is fantastic.  What we got is a concept that continued the awesome blue approach, with a design concept that is just as cool as their everyday threads. However, where I feel disappointed is the safe approach to this. I would have loved to see them lean into the rich history of the Negro Leagues that is Kansas City - a team (and city) able to do so more than others. That could have been really cool, enriching, meaningful, and somewhat different from the norm - maybe even an ode t

Today, and Someday

Today,  I push to leave on time, to place my ambition on rewind,  to conquer a list,  to feed the drive, to escape amiss Someday,  I'll work to return home soon, with purpose in tune,  to pursue the extent,  to feed my heart, for Today, I repent. 

Royal Rumble 2022 Review: "Struggles of the Current Product Came Glaring Through the Cracks"

The Royal Rumble is easily my favorite wrestling event of the year - solely for the sake of the match, the aura of the pageantry, and all of the drama that comes with it. Nothing is like that buzzer going off, the surprise entrant, and that possible encounter we've been waiting for, or we thought would never happen. It's pro wrestling's All-Star Game in a nutshell.   The event carries so much nostalgia for this wrestling fan, that no matter how bad I think the WWE product currently is - and believe me, I'm no longer avidly watching it - I will still plan my weekend around the event. Unfortunately, this year's Rumble provided that nostalgia, but the sheer struggles of the current product - again, at least to and for this fan - came glaring through the cracks.  Overall, I found the event to be fun. Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns was awesome. Mickie James getting her flowers was super cool, you can't replicate that big fight feel of Lashley vs. Lesnar, and of course
