Sunday Sundown Rundown - 7/16/23

3 Up

1. Gilgo Beach Serial Killer Captured - The break in this case feels like something out of a Law and Order episode. Nonetheless, this gets the top spot for the sheer perspective of some break and information (maybe closure?) for the families of the loved ones who perished without answers. 

2. Wimbledon Winners - Alcaraz did the thing and went through Novak Djokovic to win his first major at 20 years old. Marketa Vondrousova became the Major's first unseeded champion. Both, VERY impressive. 

3. Sabrina Ionescu - 37 Points! The greatest three-point shooting display for a three-point competition round in either the WNBA or NBA. I've been a big fan of Ionescu, and super happy the WNBA gets some love this week via her accomplishment. 

3 Down

1. Extreme Weather - Floods and Heat everywhere. It seems like we're all suffering from one of the two, and some, both. Some crazy stuff going on. 

2. Hollywood Entertainment - SAG-AFTRA now joins the Writers Guild on the picket line against Studios, the industry, the machine - all of it. If the economy hasn't felt like it's cooling off, the domino effect of Hollywood going dark for the foreseeable future has 18-24 month effects. 

3. Bank of America - Like, can banks just do this? I mean, they did and got caught. But, like, creating fake accounts? Illegal fees? WHAT?!

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!"

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
