Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/22/23

3 Up

1. Aid into Gaza - After days of destruction, having diplomats agree to open borders and opportunities to provide aid to those in Gaza is the biggest "Up" I can think of for the week. 

2. Pentagon Drops Yemen Missiles - Was I the only one that missed this story? Kind of a big deal, no? 

3. WNBA Finals - Despite he absolute gut punch it was for my New York Liberty, the WNBA Finals was a great series. Even better is the budding rivalry and drama that is brewing between Las Vegas and New York. 

3 Down

1. Palestinian Hospital Attack - All kinds of emotion, drama, blame, and conspiracy theories surround this. Ultimately, it just made everything worse. All of that aside, it's just the innocent folks in all of this that makes this awful. 

2. Chicago 6-Year-Old Stabbed Hate Crime - As the world goes mad, we've got this tremendously heartbreaking story out of Chicago. What is wrong with people?!

3. Samantha Woll Murder - And another one. While reports say antisemitism isn't the cause, it's hard not to feel that way considering this moment in time. 

3 Interested

1. Sidney Powell Plea - Trump's indictments almost feel like last year's news with the heavy feels for what is happening in Gaza and Israel. However, it sure is interesting that Powell has pleaded guilty and is willing to cooperate with authorities on charges of obstruction of the election. 

2. Michigan State "Hitler Quiz" - Seriously, it's understood that Michigan State used a third party for this, however, business and legalities aside - who does this?! Like, who approved and thought this was a good idea? 

3. New Olympic Sports - I'm not sure I care all that much for baseball and Lacrosse (sorry Laxers), however, I'm so interested in Cricket and yes, Flag Football.

WWE Survivor Series 2023 Review: "Whaddya Wanna Talk About?"

Well, following that premium live event, in the words of Cody Rhodes... "whaddya wanna talk about?"  The obvious is there, right? CM Punk, somehow, makes a bid for another moment-of-the-year candidate for wrestling fans with another "return" - his second over the last four years. This one, back to the WWE, in what felt like the most improbable of opportunities. But as we've learned, WWE truly is where you "never say never".  You can go in so many directions on this one. But without going too far down a road that hasn't developed or we have some headlights on, it's quite clear that WWE is absolutely crushing the wrestling business right now, and adding anything - or anyone - to that continued record success is the mission. They. Are. Not. Settled.  Second, the unveil I thought was great. Just absolute pro wrestling at its peak. As soon as the guitar riff to "Cult of Personality" hit and the familiar graphics hit the screens, my immedia

Quick Ponder: Gratitude

  My sense of gratitude explodes within my heart when I cease expressing it through the tangible, but rather through, time and moments.  Happy Thanksgiving, all. 

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/26/23

3 Up 1. Hostages Released - It might not be an overwhelming consensus - as this topic is so polarizing that I doubt we come to such agreements. Regardless, having innocent individuals released is a plus in the situation. I wish we still didn't have innocent people dying, but that's a whole other topic.  1a. Cease Fire - Who knows how long this will last. But the fact there is an agreement in place while hostages are being released is a plus. Take it.  2. Thanksgiving - The older I get, the more this day has a deeper focus and a sense of gratitude. Please take a moment today to focus on that among all of the chaos of food, family, friends, and everything else.  3. CM Punk Return - How cool was that? CM Punk returns to the WWE at the Survivor Series. Never say never in that company.  3 Down 1. NBA Ethics Optics - From Miles Bridges to Josh Giddey, its been really difficult lately to trust the NBA's moral compass. I'm not throwing them under the bus as they've done the
