Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/18/24

3 Up

1. Beyonce Country Music - Bey Bey is sure to annoy a lot of people with the release of several country songs that will climb the charts. The question looking forward will be if "Country America" will accept it. If they do, The Queen is about to add to her legacy for sure. 

2. Caitlin Clark Breaks Record - Well, she did it. And she did it with quite the shot. Clark is box office and is quickly becoming one of the biggest attractions in basketball. I just don't see how Clark leaves Iowa for the WNBA, and the awaiting Indiana Fever. 

3. Jenny Cavnar -  The Oakland A's appointed Cavnar as the first female primary play-by-play announcer. That's really cool. The A's are an absolute mess. This, is definitely a win for the franchise One of the few they'll get this year. Yeah, I went there...

BTW - I'm hoping they stay in Oakland. 

3 Down

1. Chiefs Parade Shooting - Guns, guns, guns. Can't enjoy anything, anymore. 

2. Kelvin Kiptum Dies - The world record holder for the men's marathon suddenly died this week - in a rather sudden way. There is certainly more here, but of course, we lost a generational athlete. 

3. NBA Dunk Contest - The absolute runs. What was that Jaylen Brown dunk (trying to be Dee Brown)?! It's make or break next year with this event.

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!"

Stay free. But keep the gate to  your peace, guarded.

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
