Sunday Sundown Rundown - 7/13/14

3 Up

1. LeBron James - While I found ESPN's coverage to be quite obnoxious and, well, very much on par with what they usually do when it comes to him, LeBron's penned notice to the world through Sports Illustrated was fantastic. Anyone else think that played into him giving the story to SI? After a disastrous "Decision" back in 2010, James did the complete opposite, and probably became a huge fan-favorite of many. Now let's see how many Miami "Heat" fans there will be in November. Frauds. 

2. World Cup - I'm going to the miss the World Cup. Streams of games during work. Brilliant football. And even for a small period, the passion for the game seen over seas, right here on U.S. soil. Farewell FIFA World Cup. As of right now, you are the leading candidate for a 2014 Pondy. 

3. Suits - A quick hit here for the USA show which I'm a big fan of. Started the latest season this weekend and I have to tip my hat to the writers for a remarkable plot. Just awesome stuff


3 Down

1. Israel-Palestine Conflict - Look, this issue will never, ever, ever, go away. You just hate to see such bloodshed and violence in the area, regardless of your faith and religious beliefs.

2. Fan Suing ESPN and MLB - This guy is a clown. A huge clown. Everyone forgot you and that moment until you brought about this ridiculous lawsuit. How can you not be more embarrassed by having your name attached to this silly lawsuit rather than that brief five minutes of sleeping on national TV? Oh yeah, by the way, what kind of fan falls asleep in the fourth inning of Yankees/Red Sox? Clown. 

3. MLB Star Injuries - From the amount of star pitchers undergoing Tommy John surgery to even position players like Yadier Molina and Brandon Phillips going down for a few months, the star power in basebal is lacking. Though, they have quite a stud in Mike Trout...hello, MLB?

Dome Pondering Export - "TNA's Biggest Problem Is..."

After ten years of importing materials, words, pictures, and videos from other sites her for your viewing and for archiving, I never thought I'd get to the point where I'd be EXPORTING material out to other sites. Yes, the DP continues to grow, and yours truly had the kind opportunity to contribute a guest column to an awesome Pro Wrestling blog with a very large audience. The piece has since been very well received, and I hope to have the opportunity to do so in the future, and maybe even other sites and avenues as well. 
You can read the column here on the TNAsylum website (special thanks to them as well for posting), or the entire text below:

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/15/17

3 Up
1. Hollywood Victims - Much props to the many men and women who have taken the step in telling their story about sexual assault and being the victim of displays of power for sexual gain within Hollywood. It's tough, especially in such an unforgiving business like show business, but it takes guts to tell the truth - much respect to you all who did so.
2. Joe Girardi - Have you ever seen a more brutally honest manager or head coach during a playoff stretch? Girardi has been letting his soul bare on mistakes, feelings, lineups, results, decisions, his family, his time in New York, and anything and everything else. I have a feeling Girardi is walking away, after this season, and if he is, I'm glad he's doing it by just being him. 
3. Eminem - I've seen some new school fans insult Eminem and downplaying his ability. I'm still a fan. After all, no one - NO ONE - captures anger in their music like Em. No one. Still so captivating. And yes, his freestyle of President …

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Wonder Woman (2017)

What is it about?

When a pilot crashes into her world, Diana, an Amazonian Warrior, leaves home to help fight a war and fulfill her true destiny. 
Who is in it? 

Gal Gadot - Diana
Chris Pine - Steve Trevor

Damn, I Love This Team

Damn. I love this team. 
I don't know what it is, or what spurred this immediate attachment in Spring Training, but I just do. Maybe it was the idea of hope and all of the wonders and excitement it brings. You know, when your squad finally ditches the old expensive brigade and gives the keys to the prospects we've been hearing about. 
Maybe that was it. 
Or, maybe it was the excitement produced by Gary Sanchez just the year before. And the near-miss of the playoffs the team teased the year prior. 
Or...maybe it was just the idea of dancing around the word "rebuilding" and having no (not low) expectations for the 2017 season. Quite frankly, we were playing with house cards, and that's a fun position to be in as a fan. 
Of course, Judge happened (Sooooooo much fun). And it happened 52 times - really 53 if we count that one home run that didn't get counted and was ruled a triple. But whose counting? 
And one of my favorites in David Robertson returned in pinstr…
