Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/28/21


3 Up

1. Thanksgiving - A time for thanks, if nothing else, a restorative time away from work. Happy Thanksgiving to all, and be sure to give thanks and practice expressing gratitude. 

Here are some quick thanks and thoughts from yours truly...

2. McMichael Trial Conviction - Is it weird that I feel relieved from this trial? Afterall, so many of these things go the other way. I could go on about how the state of Georgia didn't want to prosecute this case until it became a viral discussion, butttttttt, I'll just take this. 

Really, I just hope this brings about some kind of peace for the parents of Ahmaud Arbery. 

3. Iman Shumpert - The dude has an NBA Championship and now, a Dancing With the Stars victory. That's impressive. Kudos to Shump on the unique accomplishment. 

3 Down

1. Virgin Abloh - I'm no fashion expert - but you don't have to research much to understand the talent that was Abloh. The outpouring of affection and appreciation for his work has been amazing to watch, and his impact, felt in so many places. Cancer sucks, man. 

2. Omicron - Well...just when we thought this pandemic couldn't get any crazier, we've got new variants causing travel bans, are unknown in nature and transmission, and has the name of an evil villain trying to destroy the planet. Is this going to be life going forward? 

3. Inflation - Gas prices. Groceries. Goods. Everything is expensive. Ugh...

2024 NBA All-Star Weekend Thoughts

There's something wrong with the All-Star Game.  Yeah, we've definitely had this conversation before. Expect to pick up this very discussion (again) in July when Major League Baseball has their version in the "Mid-Summer Classic" when it is the ONLY current topic to bounce around in the stratosphere of sports discourse.  What's wrong with the All-Star Game?!  I'm not dismissing the obvious - yes, the NBA All-Star Game is very much at an alarming point of necessary refinement and change - evaluation is needed. What we saw on Sunday night was not disappointing, but outright embarrassing. Also yes, gone are the days when the game flooded your television screen at a respectable 6:30pm on NBC, and you were wowed by the athleticism and star power of the first half of the game, and treated to what felt like the world's best players playing pickup basketball on the grandest stage.  Now? Not so much. So yeah, we got the message. The outrage - and shock TV and hot t
