Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/8/13

3 Up

1. Sarena Williams - She might be the best women's athlete of our time. Another U.S. Open win, and just another major added to the list of victories for the tennis great.

2. Peyton Manning - Seven touchdowns sound like something out of a Madden video game, but Peyton kicked off the NFL season this past Thursday with a bang accomplishing the crazy feat.

3. Yusmeiri Petit - Rounding up the sports heavy "Ups" this week is a rather unknown to most casual fans. Petit was one out away from a perfect game and lost it due to a hit by Eric Chavez. Tough loss, but getting that close is always admirable.

3 Down

1. Syria -This scenario gets stranger has it is drawn out. Either way, it's sure to keep tensions high around the world.

2. Yankees Bullpen - When my main man, Mariano Rivera, is blowing saves, then you know how bad it is. The Yankees bullpen has been dreadful and could be the deciding factor in them not playing games in October. 

3. Twerking Girl - The fad that is twerking is one that is annoying, especially the fact that girls record themselves doing it. This girl earns the third down this week for her twerking fail AND for still posting it to the web for shameful popularity.

Dear Son: Next Weekend!

--38 Weeks (Before Birth)--
Dear Son, 
This is going to sound absolutely absurd, especially considering the series of posts to you at this juncture, but here it goes: your mother and I had our first jaw-dropping moment in this entire experience called pregnancy. 
We sat there in a doctor's office going through the usual Q&A to close out a typical visit, to which we then heard the following statement, "...with that said, we're looking at next weekend." 
My reaction was exactly as described in my opener - jaw dropped, eyes wide open, thought process halted, with a part of me wondering where the time had gone, and another hoping there was a moment to follow where the doctor said, "just kidding." 
But she was dead serious. Your arrival is indeed next weekend as those guiding your mother's pregnancy have all recommend that you meet us after 39 weeks, instead of the usual 40.

Making Sense of The Bible, Politics, and Immigration

They use the Bible.
For any Christian, or any person that believes in the Good Book and trusts in Jesus for faith, for life, for eternity, it always is a point of contention, a source of struggle, and a subject that truly tears the heart apart - using the Bible to justify action. And in this case, specifically cruel and inhumane action. 
By that statement, you already know where I stand. And if you read and follow this blog, you already know where I did. Yet, after Jeff Sessions used Romans 13:1 as a means to justify the removal of immigrant children from their parents at the Southern Border, as a Christian, as someone who believes heavily in that book and in the faith of Christ, I'm left utterly appalled, angry, upset, and disappointed. 
Shockingly enough, much like what was promised in "Making America Great Again", we are seeing this country reverse into some dark times and questionable actions that reflect those specific times. Times that may have been great for any …

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/17/18

3 Up
1. Father's Day - Always a special day of the year, kudos to all of the men who are engaged and active fathers around the world. I had several wishes of "Happy Father's Day" today, and yes, it was weird. Hoping to officially join the club with my initiation year coming up. 
2. The Incredibles 2 - Honestly, it was was one of the movies I would have picked to end my now decade long-movie-theater-free streak. Yes folks, it's been over ten years now. I should probably put up a countdown on the site. Nonetheless, kudos to I2 for raking in over $180 Million over the weekend. And yes, this sequel is so long overdue. 
3. The World Cup - It's been absolutely incredible since the start. With many upsets and poor outings from some powerhouses, the tournament is already flipped upside down. We saw an epic Ronaldo performance, and a Messi letdown continuing that epic debate. Also, it's pretty interesting to watch those who fancy themselves "BIG" sports …
