Sunday Sundown Rundown - 8/10/14

3 Up 

1. Generous College President - There are a lot of people in executive positions who talk about making change for their staff financially, but only do so with just that, talk. The Kentucky State President did so by action in taking a pay cut to help fund the school's lowest paid workers. Kudos to him. 

2. People Power - It is so easy to lose faith in humanity at times, especially when it comes to helping one another. However, stories such as the recent one in which commuters banded together to rock a train enough in order to free a man whose leg was trapped between the platform and the train.

3. "Apparently" Kid - I'm sure you've seen this by now. If you haven't, take a look. This kid was adorable, and downright hilarious...and for the record, I apparently have never been on live television before either. 

3 Down

1. ISIS/Iraqi Situation - As ISIS moved from claiming territory to unspeakable actions of murder, rape, and other disgusting actions as they run rampant, now we see the U.S. getting involved with air strikes to cease ISIS's destruction. Everyone knew this situations was heading down this road. We can nw only hope an pray this situation doesn't get more extreme. 

2. Mike Brown - What can be said here? These killings of minority young men continue to occur throughout our nation, and all with very cloudy details of what really happened. Not a good thing for race relations and societal harmony in our nation. 

3. NASCAR Incident - Such a tragic incident in the world of NASCAR this week. Tony Stewart will never be the same again. And of course, condolences to Kevin Ward Jr.'s family and loved ones.

1. Lt. Sayem Basad Pacha - No one will ever know what went through Pacha's head before he bear-hugged a suicide bomber the moment the vest was detonated. I can't even wrap my mind around the thought process. Whatever it is, this man is one thing - hero. And that's in the purest form. 
2. Kianoush Rostami - The earthquake that rocked the Iran/Iraq border was devastating. Yet, here is Rostami giving up his prized possession of an Olympic gold medal to raise money for the relief effort. Much respect. 
3. WWE War Games - In a more light-hearted "Up" this week (we need that from time-to-time, no?), the WWE's Survivor Series weekend was just fantastic. But man, so much props to everyone who put work into Saturday's NXT show, as well as the return of War Games. That match was so awesome.

1. Rob Moore - All I will say is this - it's bad when even something such as sexual assault is now becoming a topic and a driving force for identity politics. Re…

The Pondering 10 - Dream Pro Wrestling Matches

Just like any sport, movie, or form of entertainment, pro wrestling has produced many memorable characters, moments, and eras that fans hold dearly. The memories, debates and discussions that have formed over the years have caused all of us to at one time fantasize about our dream scenarios. We all have them. And yes, we all have our dream matches, even if they will not ever happen. The following Pondering 10 list takes a look at my top pro wrestling dream matches, with of course, all of the participants being in their prime.

1. Aly Raisman - Following the bravery of Mckayla Maroney and others in the #MeToo campaign, Raisman has stepped forward as the charges pile up for sexual abuse by former USA Gymnastics doctor, Larry Nassar. By the way, shame on USA Gymnastics for continuing to allow this culture. I shudder to think what else lies in the world of Gymnastics. 
2. New York Times - In a world where journalism - real journalism - is becoming harder and harder to find, The Times continues to break stories left and right, and did so again this week with the Louis CK piece. I think we all are tired of journalism wrapped in identity politics, and yes, even "fake news". 
3. Kristaps Porzingis - Obviously, you all know how much I love the Unicorn. But seriously, how enjoyable is he to watch? And barring injury, he can only get better. Melo, who?

1. Sean Hannity - Seriously, I don't even know how this guy sleeps at night. And really, I'm not even sure what kind of person follows thi…
