Sunday Sundown Rundown - 7/26/20


3 Up

1. John Lews Across Pettus Bridge - This was cool. Lewis helped change American history on this very bridge many years ago. The act of carrying his body across the bridge one last time was just so cool. By the way, it's time to rename the bridge in the man's honor.

2. Regis Philbin - My mom lovvvvvvvvved Regis. Live! was one of her favorite shows in the morning, and because of that, I understand the genuine loss here. There are a few people who come into your homes daily and become a part of your life. For many, Regis was one of those characters/personalities.

3. Alyssa Nakken - Another cool thing this week. Alyssa Nakken becoming the first female coach in Major League Baseball. Very, very cool.

3 Down

1. Judge's Family Attacked - This was so sad, and really, just so 2020. A crazed lawyer calling himself a "feminazi" who hated "feminism (???) killed the son of Judge Esther Salas and injured her husband. Ugh. So stupid. And so incredibly sad.

2. Amazon People & Coronavirus - My heart really goes out to the indigenous tribes of the Amazon Brazil. A group of the group in the rainforest has been hardly hit by the Coronavirus, doubling the mortality rate of the rest of the world. Not only has their land been under attack, but this group also has to deal with the ugly the rest of the world has brought on its community.

3. Portland, Oregon - The snatching of protesters by Federal officials is deeply concerning.

1 SMH

1. Schools Reopening - I'll just say this - we should send our schools back the minute our leaders have decided to send their kids and grandkids to schools. There is no plan. No guidance. No measures in writing for schools to take. But yeah, let's just open our schools. Ugh...SMH.

WWE Wrestlemania XL Review: "I absolutely loved this Wrestlemania"

It's easy to get caught up and become a prisoner of the moment. Especially in today's world where the latest moment is ostracized, super-analyzed, and hyperbolized - it's very much the clickbait, social media, microwave society we live in.  Yet, even after acknowledging that (as well as my Tribal Chief, of course), I still come to this feeling that Wrestlemania XL is one of the best Wrestlemania's, ever.  Yes, ever!  I don't need Triple H's metrics and benchmarks to influence me. No, no, no! In terms of hype, storylines, payoffs, match quality, and just overall fun - this entire weekend was amazing.  I'm slightly skewed in my preference as well. This was my son's first Wrestlemania as a pro wrestling fan. Having him at my side cheering on his favorites, getting caught up in the drama, and even crying at the end of the night because his Tribal Chief lost to "that no good Cody" added to the overall appreciation of the event.  So yeah, I have some

DP Review of the Alternate Knicks Orange Jersey

One of the good aspects about having a blog and being truthful and honest about it, is the hindsight thought process it provides. DP devotees already know how much I love my New York Knicks, and how excited I was about their new jerseys last year. It was a new look that was desperately needed ( DP Review On Knicks New Uniforms ).  In reviewing those jerseys last year, I had the following comments in regards to then-rumors regarding the addition of an alternative orange jersey for the Knicks and overall NBA changes to the Christmas Day special jerseys:  "As long as we do not add an "alternative jersey" (I read rumors of an orange one - woof!) (and the league-wide Spanish jerseys are fine). And please, please - PLEASE - let's finally do away with the awful green jerseys we feel the need to wear on Christmas and St. Patrick's day! Pretty please!"
