The IF Factor: Questions Answered 421-430

421. If you could realize a dream that you have had while asleep, what dream would you pick?

Walking the aisle at Wrestlemania. I'm don't remember what that dream was about, I know, strangely enough,  but I always felt walking the aisle at a Wrestlemania would such a cool moment. 

422. If you could choose two colors and one symbol to represent a new country created by you, what two colors and symbol would you choose?

I would choose dark blue and light blue, with white being a given color. I would choose a cross bar along with a old-English style cross in front of it. Because there are sites out there that allow you to actually design your own flag, I messed around and brought my vision to life.



423. If you had to identify the worst hotel room you have ever stayed in, where was it?

Oh, this is quite easy for me. While my trip to Italy did include some tiny rooms, bathrooms, showers, and some other inconveniences not suitable or accustomed by Americans, nothing will ever compare to a Washington D.C. hotel I stayed in during my college baseball days. Roaches, a mice, drug deals, and I'm pretty sure prostitution was rampant throughout the night. VERY sketchy building, scene, and area. 

Oddly enough, my recent trip to DC included one of the coolest hotels I've ever been in, "The George." 

424. If you had to name the most important invention in history, what would win?

Wow, this is extremely hard. Right off the bat I want to say the computer, as I can't even imagine life without modern technology. Also the wheel comes to mind as well. However, I'll stick to my guns on my original thought and go with electricity. I'm sure that change the game for many facets in life. 

425. If you had to choose the best song ever composed, which one would it be?

Wow. Too hard. No matter what I answer with, I'll come up with something else and wonder what  was thinking at this exact moment. I'm going to go cheat and go with three songs that immediately come to mind, "Imagine" by John Lennon, "I Can Only Imagine" by MercyMe, and "Everlong" by Foo Fighters. I'm going with these three just on the sheer quality of the writing involved in the lyrics. All three songs evoke deep and interesting thoughts amid the music. 

426. If you could solve one unsolved crime, which one would you solve?

Another tough one - first thing that came to mind was the unsolved murder of JonBenet Ramsey. 

427. If you could win any competition in the world, what would it be for?

American Idol or The Voice, or one of those other crazy singing competition shows would be tremendous because I absolutely cannot sing. But as someone who enjoys the sporting world, winning a Crossfit competition would be awesome. Again, another win very unlikely, and would probably be a miracle. 

428. If you just learned that you had exactly one year to live, what would you do with your remaining time?

Travel. I would quit my job, pack my bags and my laptop and go see the rest of the world. Possibly penning a "final season" so-to-speak of Dome Pondering.

429. If you could break one current world sports record, which one would it be?

All-time Home Run record. So there would be no more controversy. 

430. If you were allowed to eat only one vegetable for the rest of your life, which one would it be?

Broccoli. Love them. And they go with plenty of meals.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/17/17

3 Up
1. JJ Wyatt - Not only has the man raised over $37M for Hurricane Harvey relief, but unlike many of the various charities we have become accustomed to, Wyatt is very transparent in how he will spend the money, and what he plans to do. Still in such awe of this. 
2. Tim Duncan - In the same spectrum as Wyatt is one of my favorite athletes, Tim Duncan. A native from the US Virgin Islands, Tim Duncan has been instrumental in Hurricane Irma relief by donating 20,000 pounds of food to the area. Such awesome stories in the midst of all these Natural disasters. The power of the human spirit is so great. 
3. Cleveland Indians - 22 Baseball games in a row. The Indians record winning-streak came to an end  this week, but it is damn impressive. Are they NOT the choice to make it back to the World Series from the American League? 
3 Down
1. London Attacks - SMH on these terrorists attacks. My heart goes out to those affected by more senselessness in the world. 
2. White House on Jemele Hill -…

Dope Sports Threads - Nike NBA Uniforms

When Nike was announced as the new provider of the NBA uniforms, formerly designed by Adidas, I was very intrigued on what the super creative company would do. The team of Adidas and the NBA always felt a little...well, off. Nothing wrong with either brand, they just don't seem like a good fit for one another. Hence, we got jerseys with sleeves and such under their term. 
Go back to soccer, Adidas. It's where you shine. 
Enter, Nike. And this is the perfect fit for the NBA. And thus far, the designs, names of uniforms, and feel for the upcoming aesthetics within the NBA is awesome. Again, Nike just doing Nike things. 
With the the new uniforms, as always, here are a few notes on the latest:

Goodbye Melo

I've wanted this for the Knicks, and today I got it.

Carmelo Anthony is no longer a New York Knick heading into the 17-18 NBA Season.

No, I don't dislike Melo. In fact, if you go through previous posts you'll know, I find Melo to be a very, very good player. However, I just thought it was time for the Knicks to move past this era, and truly - like, really - rebuild.

Most importantly, build around Kristaps Porzingis.

But, again, for me, I've always - ALWAYS - believed that Carmelo Anthony needed to be the #2 (or #3) guy on a team. Watching him night in and night out as a Knick, he just never seemed to be the type of guy who lifts those around him. Again, he's a tremendous player but the track record is there. I don't buy into the "he's never had much around him" argument.

Have you seen the Knicks roster in comparison to the rest of the Eastern Conference the last few years?

Dome Pondering - 2012 Year in Review

Mic check. One, two, three. Mic check. Okay, so we're on, and hey, we're still alive! Stupid Mayans. Welcome to the DP's signature post of the year, the Year in Review. Each year, as we did last (Dome Pondering Year in Review - 2011), we take a look back at the calendar year and prepare for the next one ahead. With a packed and eventful 2012, there is much to delve into and plenty to prepare for in 2013. 
Before we do, I'd like to simply thank all of the DP devotees out there for your continued support and interest in this little blog called Dome Pondering. While it seems I've come to say the same thing every time at this part of the year, it bears repeating that this site full of my thoughts and words has grown tremendously over the last three years because of you. It seems the older I become and the less time I have, the more I am able to punch the keys. I don't get it either, and I'm not even going to try to figure it out. Nonetheless, thank you once ag…
