Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/23/13

3 Up

1. LeBron James - Kudos to the best basketball player on the planet on winning his second NBA championship.

2. Trop Fest New York 2013 - I heard of the world-wide festival two years ago and never really thought much of it. This year, the festival made Brooklyn one of it's stops and I attended with the tag team partner. Had a great time with some interesting bands/artists, and the collection of some very good short films. Looking forward to attending again next year.

3. Rum - Weird, right? Just like any culture does, and just like those parents who believe in old home remedies, like mine do from the West Indian part of the world, I was told to drink a mixture of rum, honey, and lemon juice to help aid in my sickness. After giving up and willing to try just about anything, I threw back several two glasses Saturday night, and another one today. Lo and behold, I have been feeling much better. Guess what's on tap for tomorrow night while watching Monday Night Raw?

3 Down

1. Long-term illnesses - Yes, I am still sick, and it sucks. Slowwwwwwwwwwwwly getting better.

2. Bad Baby Names - I'm never one to get caught up in the hype like others with these celebrity baby names and such. Name your kid what you wish, ya know? However, when there are reports of Nazi followers naming their kids things such as "Aryan Nation" and "Adolph Hitler", and now Kanye West and Kim Kardashian with the brilliant name of "North West", it boggles the mind on society's direction (no pun intended regarding North West)

3. Manu Ginobili - I have no idea what Ginobili was doing in the final two games of the NBA Finals. At times he can be fun to watch, but this past week was brutal.

1. Basketball Student-Athletes - I'm not talking the programs, or the fans that support these programs. I'm giving the "Up" to those student-athletes who sacrifice and give their all for an experience they are about to embark on. Good luck to all of those who competed up onto this point, and those moving on in the NCAA Tournament. 
2. Unsolved - This weekend, the wife and I started this latest series on the USA Network about the Murders of Biggie Smalls and Tupac. So far, it has been especially good. Well done, well detailed, and very dramatic. Giving a personal recommendation on this one. 
3. MLS Soccer Sundays - Good to have Soccer Sundays back. And the first weekend, the MLS provided some very entertaining games, including Atlanta FC setting a new record for single-game attendance at over 72,000. Who said soccer isn't big in this country?

1. White House School Safety Plan - I CAN NOT believe our leaders believe gun training for teachers is a viable…

The Pondering 10 - Favorite MLB Uniforms

Unlike most sports, baseball uniforms carry a lot of tradition and history. It's rare that you see baseball teams deviate away from the history of a club, and if they do, it's usually an ownership change. For the most part, in baseball, the uniforms are sacred. Because of that, Major League Baseball has many teams with uniforms that are very, very significant, and also, very stylish. As we did for the NFL (Pondering 10 - Favorite NFL Uniforms), the following Pondering 10 will take a look at my favorite MLB uniforms.

The Pondering 10 - Favorite Things I Miss as a Kid

As I get older, the thoughts of childhood memories become fonder and fonder especially as the distance between that time and the present grows. As an adult, you watch the current generation doing certain things, and despite not exactly being in agreement with their ways, it takes you back to a certain time when you were in their position and how you enjoyed those crucial years for any individual. With summer in mid-swing, recently, I've become jealous of many youth because of what I remembered participating in as a child. Because of this, the following Pondering 10 will list my favorite things I miss as a kid:

2013 Bucket List - #26 Encourage a Guest Post - "Football: Dislike"

In a year where the DP has branched out to other sites, it's only natural that we have other contributors do so on this platform as well. As one of my goals for 2013, I wanted to have a guest blogger, and decided to go with my tag team partner (my wife for you DP newbies). See, she has an undying dislike for football, and I thought it would make for a good piece, would provide common ground for those that feel the same way, and of course, instant therapy for her problem with America's phenomenon. So without further adieu, here it is:
