The IF Factor: Questions Answered #241-250

241. If you could have your spouse say one thing about you to friends, what would you want him or her to say?

"He's just awesome."

242. If you spoke English with a foreign accent, which would you want it to be?

Oh this might be the easiest question of them all...a British accent.

243. If you could guarantee the happiness of any single person in the world because they most deserve it, who would it be?

I have way too many friends who are single, it could be any one of them.

244. If you could learn the total number of hours you have spent in your life doing one thing, what would it be?

Playing MVP Baseball 2005 for the Playstation 2. I literally had to disconnect my PS2 so I would not play it anymore. Still the best video game I've ever played. Just never gets old. And of course, is insanely addicting. 

245. If you had to name the person you know with the best attitude regarding money, who would it be?

My wife. I always thought I was either frugal, or just a simple person when it came to spending habits. My wife takes saving to another step with her coupons, sales, deals, and of course, the occasional e-mail to management when she is unhappy with a service or a product. She always gets her money's worth. 

246. If you could have only one magazine subscription for life, which would you pick?

Men's Health Magazine. 

247. If you had to choose the most necessary thing you do each day, what would say it was?

The five minute period between checking my clock and eventually getting up for the day. Gathering myself with a quick thought process and prayer is always necessary. 

248. If you were to decide on a new punishment for convicted murderers, aside from life imprisonment or the death penalty, what would it be?

The ability for the victim's immediate family and loved ones to cane the suspect in public. Sadistic and harsh? Sure. But so was the crime. Some folks aren't afraid of death and jail. But embarrassment and suffering just might do the trick. 

249. If you could have one extra hour each day to do only one thing, what would you do in that hour?

Blog. Or...maybe sleep because everything else eats up the hours in my day. 

250. If the laziest person you know had to do one thing each day for the rest of their life, what would they do?

Volunteer at after-school programs, YMCAs, or other youth based programs. If you're not going to work, at least help give back to the communities or enrich the lives of others. Just don't be a total waste of a mind.

Dope Sports Threads - MLB Player's Weekend Gear

I love everything about MLB Player's Weekend. From the moment it was rumored way back over the winter, I have been anticipating the announcements of what I feel is baseball finally - FINALLY - looking to modernize itself. Well, at least just a bit. Baby steps.

While I love MLB Uniforms and the tradition that comes with them, I do get annoyed with the over-abundance and wacky uniforms we see from the NBA. With that said, I like the idea of keeping this to one weekend. Where it becomes sort of a spectacle. And it is thus far.

Ultimately, I like that players are getting more say so in changing the antequated mentality that baseball currently has here in the States. Regardless, I'm sure most have seen the names, the uniforms and the gear. Here are my thoughts on the ones that caught my eye:

Unpacking Thoughts on Charlottesville

This weekend has been exhausting. Despite the constant systemic injustice that is the United States of America, it's a moment like this weekend that is delivered and must be unpacked and discussed carefully in the pursuit of social justice - justice that is long deserved. 
There is plenty wrapped up in everything that is Charlottesville, Virigina. This is deep, spans back to the beginning of this nation, and is a result of current times as well. 
I'm still decompressing it all. Here are a few quick thoughts as I too wrap my mind, my emotions, and my intellect and rationale around it:

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 8/13/17

3 Up
1. Los Angeles Dodgers - In a rough week where the real world just crushes us, the dominance of the Dodgers is one that leaves us in awe, and can take us out into something great for a few minutes. 
2. Derek Jeter The Owner - Is there anything that Derek Jeter loses at? The Captain is now part owner of the Miami Marlins, and get this - will be the first owner and CEO of color within MLB. That's HUGE. 
3. Married at 98 - These two are getting married at 98 (He's 94). How about they both workout at the gym twice-a-week, and met there. So cool in so many ways. Good for them! 
3 Down
1. Charlottesville - So many layers to this story. Hate. History. The ridiculous response from our President. And the apparent shock some in this country have that people are out there who still have this ideology. Point blank, this was terrorism. 
2. Trump and North Korea - Just before Charlottesville, Trump talked tough for absolutely no reason in a back-and-forth that unfortunately effects hund…

Pondering Picture #81

An establishment cannot uphold systemic injustice, and attempt to condemn it, simultaneously.

My prayers (and of course my thoughts...so many thoughts) are with Charlottesville, Virgina, and the many people of color who have endured through these scenes and images over the course of history.
