Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/2/22

3 Up

1. ALS Ice Bucket Challenge - Just when you lose faith in the purpose of the internet and social media challenges, this OG of social media trends pops up to remind us of when the internet was a source of good powers. All jokes aside, it is pretty awesome to see such a trend make a true difference, and not just for internet clout. 

2. Aaron Judge - 61 home runs. Just unreal stuff from the big man. Keep it going. 

3. John Cena - Speaking of unreal, I honestly don't think Cena gets enough credit for his Make-a-Wish efforts. Kudos to Cena for the consistency, and for doing so with an extraordinarily busy schedule. 

3 Down

1. Hurricane Ian - Florida is in absolute shambles. So many homes were lost. So many lives were ruined. Keep so many of these people in your thoughts, prayers, vibes, and everything else. 

2. NFL and Tua - Everything - EVERYTHING - about the Tua situation is why I find football such a tough sport for me to consume regularly. Shame on the NFL for Tua even being on a field following a concussion. 

3. Indonesia Soccer Stampede - 125 lives were senselessly ended because of a soccer game. We all have heard of the stories of international soccer games, hooligans, and the atmosphere at those games, but what are we doing?

Quick Ponder: Daily Armor

Imagine, if we can see the dents and scratches, the smashes and chaos,  on the daily armor, each of us put on. Just imagine. 

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/11/24

3 Up 1. Super Bowl - That was an entertaining game! I'm definitely your football casual, so appropriately adjust your take in reading this. I rarely dive into the Super Bowl other than for social interest and custom, but I genuinely was glued to my seat watching this event - game and halftime performance. Well done, NFL.  Also, a record of 123M people watching it - that's pretty good, too.  1a. Patrick Mahomes/Chiefs - Congratulations to the Chiefs on a rarity in the NFL - back-to-back titles! Even more so, is the props towards Mahomes. Again, a super causal here, but that dude pulls me in. He's amazing.  1b. Usher Performance - I was all about it. Amazingly, I'm now the age of the target demographic of the NFL for these halftime shows. Regardless, Usher killed it!  2. Annie Ray - We often don't see these Grammys handed out, but kudos to Annie Ray for receiving a Grammy for her amazing work in music education. Definitely give this a quick read.  3. Record Stocks -
