Sunday Sundown Rundown - 3/1/20


3 Up

1. Vanessa Bryant - The tribute for Kobe Bryant was absolutely moving. Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal, Sabrina Ionescu, and others - were so great with their words and in the moment. But none were that of Vanessa Bryant's speech. How she managed to get through her beautiful words was the kind of strength only God can give. Her courage, tenacity, and poise - in all that she has experienced, and continues to go through - was and continues to be, incredible.

2. Sabrina Ionescu - She is the best-kept secret in all of sports, and quite frankly, it is a shame. However, the word is beginning to leak of Ionescu's greatness as she finished her senior season at Oregon as the only player - Male or Female - to have recorded 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds, and 1000 assists. Naturally, she also finished with the most triple-doubles in NCAA history as well. The New York Liberty, playing right down the road here in Brooklyn this season, has the first pick in the upcoming WNBA Draft. They better take Ionescu. And if they do, I'll be there throughout the summer.

3. Jessica Margulies - Major props to Margulies, who leads a boxing program for children on the Autistic spectrum, called - what else? - The Spectrum Bout. Her story and work is an inspiring one that should get some props.

3 Down

1. Coronavirus - Things have definitely gotten more serious, especially here at home in the United States. I feel like our government isn't as prepared for this as others around the world have been. Regardless, we are at the stage where another infection/diagnosis pops up in a new region across the world every few hours. Be safe ya'll. Wash your hands, and of course, avoid touching your face.

2. Harvey Weinstein Sentence - Weinstein, somehow, was acquitted of predatory sexual assault. SMH. That's America.

3. The Arrest of a 6-Year Old Student - It has to be said - if this little girl were white, in no way would she be dragged out of a school in handcuffs and treated the way she was. We see this across statistics throughout education in regards to many of the various gaps in education, and here it is, once again in action. Though, it was nice to see that the officer who engaged in this despicable act was terminated. That is so rare, that it is shocking to digest, to be honest.

1 Disgusted

1. Shared Photos of Kobe's Death - The fact that there are now leaked photos of the bodies from last month's tragic helicopter crash, including Kobe and Gigi Bryant, is disgusting. Shame on the officers involved. Where is the dignity?

Dome Pondering Movie Review: The Incredibles 2 (2018)

What is it about? The Parr family returns to take on a new mission which involves a change in family roles as well as a new villain. Who is in it? Craig T. Nelson - Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible Holly Hunter - Helen Parr/Elastagirl Sarah Powell - Violet Parr Favorite Scene: After trying to contain Jack-Jack, his constant battle with a backyard rodent opens up the family to the multitude of powers that he possesses, or even, can develop. Favorite Quote: "If you wanna get out of the hole, first you gotta put down the shovel." Review: Like many, I LOVED the original Incredibles film. And yes, I too was annoyed whenever a sequel wasn't announced. After all, there were many franchises that debuted, got a sequel, and even moved straight to release on their third installment before our lovable heroic family got their turn! But I digress... Nonetheless, it finally arrived. And if I'm being honest, The Incredibles 2 was good. It just wasn't what I wa

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/2/23

3 Up 1. Women's College Basketball - From the epic semi-final that was Iowa vs. South Carolina that crushed it in the ratings to today's awesome drama that was Iowa vs. LSU, women's basketball earned some much-deserved respect in the mainstream sports media. Shout out to all in today's game - loved it.  1a. Confident Women - I'm not jumping on a hot take regarding Caitlin Clark and Angela Reese. Both are super confident women who talked trash and balled. Give the women the space to do it, take it, and express it - like we do the men. Much respect to Clark and to Reese as well.  2. Wrestlemania - An amazing two nights for the WWE. Just epic storytelling and overall solidifies the greatest live event in entertainment. No one does it like the WWE.  3. Pandemic Over (?) - So, I'm not sure if anyone has officially, officially ended the pandemic - if they did, I definitely missed it. However, with the Senate voting to overturn the COVID-19 national emergency order, is

Impact No Surrender 2023 Review: "Interested in where the Product is Going"

I've fallen behind on my Impact Wrestling viewing, but honestly, that's okay. For viewership and enjoyment, yes. Not so well for posting a review for readership long after it's noteworthy or relevant. But whatevs, that's just where I am in life. Wrestling is much more fun removed from the restraints and influence of the criticism and impact (no pun intended) of the current time. That's just me. You can probably thank social media. Moving on, No Surrender 2023 continues Impact's progress into the new year. The product is still solid and consistent with a nice blend of characters and wrestlers moving in and out of the main event scene, along with a fresh batch of a resurgence of characters and occurrences. Nothing says that more than Rich Swann vs. Josh Alexander.  No Surrender was a solid event, but it does leave me extremely interested in where the product is going, or should I say planning, for 2023. I don't want to say that Alexander's title reign has
