Well, if you talk to my tag team partner, I'm sure she would say that my mobile phone owns me, more specifically, twitter. However, despite being connected to the world and its on goings, I'm not a complicated guy that is overly interested with gadgets, technical things, and/or various electronics. I love my car, my phone, my television screen, my PlayStation 2 (yes, I still play it), and my X-box 360. And I own these things. I understand they can be replaced, and I'm not completely attached. And oh yeah, I love my wife, too.
83. Would you rather lose all of your old memories or never be able to make new ones?
Never be able to make new ones. While the memories I have or will make in the future I'm sure can be great, I truly believe your childhood memories are the ones you hold dear to your heart. I have no idea what the future holds, but my childhood, which was awesome, can never be taken away at this point.

I’ve never seen anything like this…
Yet, the continued story of Jeremy Lin and the phenomenon that has grown out of it is amazing. This past Tuesday was the pinnacle of Lin-sanity, as Lin delivered a game winning shot against the Toronto Raptors that has heightened this craze to a climax. It was a moment this die-hard Knicks fan will never forget. A moment, as a sports fan, that seems unreal. However, it was the moment where I truly believed something larger is at work with this kid.

I was on the train heading home to Brooklyn when I first found out. As I checked my latest refreshed feed before I headed underground, twitter was buzzing with the breaking news – Whitney Houston Dead at age 48. As I continued to scroll through multiple sources such as the New York Daily News, the New York Times, and the Associated Press, the news was confirmed, and my heart sank.
With details being very vague right now and many questions still unanswered, especially, the cause of death, I find it very interesting to see how others are not only viewing her death, but are choosing to remember Houston. The overall public perception (minus media reaction) is that drugs were a cause, and from some social media responses, the overall theme was sadly, “just another crackhead died.”

If you live in New York as of February 9th, 2012, how can you not be wrapped up in the current sporting euphoria? Fresh off the heels of a New York Giants Super Bowl win, the sporting world has given us the wonderful story of one, Jeremy Lin. Who? Yes, Jeremy Lin. And dare I say, Lin is the most interesting, compelling, and inspirational story going today. In the midst of a terrible time where everything seemed down in the doldrums, the New York Knicks have found a gem, or as one sign said last night in Washington D.C., "Crouching Tiger, hidden point guard", to fill a dying (and I do mean dying) need on their team.

There are a lot of places in which I find inspiration. For one, when it comes to this little blog known as Dome Pondering, inspiration comes from many of the head-scratching, head-shaking, jaw-dropping, eye-squinting stories, concepts, and norms that occur in life. As for me personally, for some odd reason, I've always been motivated and inspired by doubters and nay-sayers. I'm often moved by negative-reinforcement (I'll show you!). Weird, I know. Other forms of inspiration are underdog stories, and hearing personal testimonies and stories of others who have turned their lives around.
50. Can you describe your life in a six word sentence?
Thoughtfully running this race called life.

Haven't we seen this script before? Different Super Bowl you say? Well, Super Bowl XLVI looked an awful lot like Super Bowl XLII did, with game changing catches, an Eli Manning fourth quarter drive, a disappointed Tom Brady, and another celebration for the city of New York. Now, DP devotees know that yours truly is a Jets fan, and quite honestly, watching another Giants/Patriots Super Bowl was not only depressing for the lose-lose situation it presented, but sadly reminded Jet nation of how dysfunctional our franchise is. And yes, how long it's been since we've been in a Super Bowl (1969!). However, similar to my feeling on the Giants winning Super Bowl XLII (Famine Over: G-Men Are Giants In New York City), I am content with the outcome of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady leaving the big stage without any hardware.

Every Saturday fans pack 100,000 seat stadiums and fill arenas with wacky chants, movements, and traditions in support of their favorite Division I collegiate schools and teams. Like a widespread plague, our nation's fascination with school and civic pride is admirable, well deserved, and honored. We cheer, we jeer, we shake our heads in disgust, we cry on senior day, and we become elated on what has become the biggest joke of a day in our society - national signing day. A day where collegiate fans are filled with hope and excitement as seventeen and eighteen year old boys across the nation are pampered and coddled as we await the defining moment of their selection by placing a simple on hat on their heads.
