Sunday Sundown Rundown - 3/10/24

3 Up

1. Wrongly Convicted Man Released - A wrongly convicted man was released in Philadelphia after 30 years -30 YEARS! Each time there is a story like this I am filled with many emotions. But the biggest one is that I'm happy to see justice done correctly. Peace be to that man. 

2. Caitlin Clark Effect - Clark continues to scorch the sports world as the Big Ten Championship (in which Clark participated) garnered the highest ratings for a regular season women's basketball game. I really can't wait to see what she does this season with the Indiana Fever. 

3. Instagram/Facebook Outage - It was for a mere few hours. But you know what? It was glorious. Remember the world before social media? Ahhhhhh, reality...

3 Down

1. Biden vs. Trump II - Well, now it's official after Nikki Haley officially suspended her campaign. It's the most inevitable (and possibly unwanted) rematch in the history of anything. It really does beg, can we not do better? 

2. Haiti Gang Violence - Haiti is undergoing some extreme social movements with gang warfare taking over the country. Haiti has seen its government seized, prisons released, and various ports under the control of gangs. Truly, some concerning (and Jack Ryan-ish) stuff. 

3. Amazon Wildfires - Well, there are now parts of the Amazon Rainforest that expect rainfall this time of the year, and is now on fire. Never seen before! Do with that as you want...

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
