Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/23/22

3 Up

1. Hearing Aids Over Counter - This is pretty cool even though we expected this. Sure, we can go into a deeper (more negative) discussion on the American healthcare system, but let's keep it positive. It is innovations and access like this that will help SO many in a significant way. Oh, the possibilities! 

Yes, that was some sarcasm. 

2. Emmett Till Statue - Much like above, there is a deeper discussion on Emmett Till, however, the positive is that a statue of Till is now present in Mississippi. We should NEVER forget Till and everything his death represents in the history and the fabric within the thread of our country's existence. 

3. Philadelphia Phillies - They barely qualified for the playoffs, and here they are as 2022 National League Champions. Who had this predicted?! 

Shout out to Bryce Harper finally getting to this stage and delivering in a big way. 

3 Down

1. Kanye West - Okay, yes, this week West gets the top "down" spot. He's been consistent enough, right? West continues an ever-winding story about an individual - himself - that we've never seen before. What a turn of events...

Also, in the present, the dude just flat-out says some awful things. All in the name of "free speech". 

1A. Adidas - Hey, are you guys going to do anything? Probably not. 

2. Liz Truss Resignation - Apparently no one wants to be in charge of the United Kingdom. 

3. Yankees Fans - Yes, the ALCS has been probably the toughest series to endure that I can remember since 2012 (against the Tigers). But the current complaining and outright rants come off as whiny, complaining, and spoiled more than an educated fanbase upset with recent performance. 

There is a difference. 

3 Interesting 

1. Midterm Elections - From what I'm reading, most of America feels more confident with selecting Republicans moving forward. Honestly, I can't blame them as Democrats have really led a lackluster ship since 2020. Just thoughts from this independent voter. 

2. Student Debt Relief Plan - Biden's Debt Relief plan was blocked by the Supreme Court. Honestly, I'm not sure I understand the viewpoint of those who oppose this bill. 

3. Trump Subpoenaed Jan 6th - That says it all...

Stay tuned this week, I guess.

AEW All IN: London (2023) Review: "This large of a crowd for an event that wasn't the WWE!"

I'm obviously registering these thoughts incredibly late, but such is the current state of pro wrestling right now - there is just so much going on, and so much to enjoy. It's a great time to be a fan, regardless of where your tribalism fandom falls - if you carry such allegiances.  I'm sure no matter what product you find entertaining, you circled AEW's All In event from Wembley Stadium as a must-watch. I don't care about someone else's "take" on the attendance total - I couldn't care less if it was the record for a pro wrestling event or not - what AEW was able to accomplish is absolutely amazing! Four years in, and the company produced an event on the levels of Wrestlemania in terms of attendance and business - that's damn impressive! Tony Khan and the entire company deserve loads of credit for taking that leap because it very much could have failed. They took a chance, and absolutely delivered (and so much more), and proved there is a subs

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/10/23

3 Up 1. Coco Gauf & Novak Djokovic - The US Open wrapped up this weekend and tennis crowned some deserving champions. Djokovic continues to add to a remarkable career with his 24th (!!) grand slam title win. And of course, Coco Gauff won over America with her win. It's impressive to see the effect that the Williams sisters have had on tennis - wow. Looking forward to seeing the star Gauff will become.  2. Olivia Rodrigo - Her first album was fire. Even this late-thirties male enjoyed it. The sophomore album is always the toughest and Rodrigo apparently (haven't listened to it myself, yet) dropped an absolute banger in "Guts". So much so, that it broke records for debut stream with over 60 million streams!  3. Deion Sanders - There's way to much dialogue around Sanders that isn't needed. Here is what it boils down to for me - Sanders took over a program that was 1-11. He brought in 80+ players. His team is currently 2-0, including victories over a ranked op

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/3/23

3 Up  1. Labor Day Weekend - It's the weekend where we mark the unofficial end of summer. However, the weather this upcoming week says otherwise. Nonetheless, I hope you all had an opportunity to reflect, restore, and give some gratitude on this weekend.  2. College Sports - College athletics are back in swing, providing some pretty awesome moments this week.  2a. Nebraska Women's Volleyball - 92,003 for a Women's Volleyball Game is not just a record for a Women's Athletic event, but it's pretty freakin' cool. Kudos to Nebraska Athletics and everyone who attended in making that a special occasion.  2b. Travis Hunter - I didn't get a chance to watch the Colorado vs. TCU game, however, I'm a fan of Deion Sanders, mainly from what he did for Jackson State. However, Hunter playing both ways is remarkable. Freak athlete.  3. Jimmy Buffett - The world said goodbye to Buffet whose songs can take you to a beach or to summer vibes in an instant.  3 Down  1.
