Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/7/14

Derek Jeter Celebration - "Derek Jeter Day" was awesome, bias feelings aside, the Yankees are always terrific in these ceremonies and events. Even better was Jeter's speech which was brief, right to the point, and of course, well done. Very surprising to see the Yankees not retire #2 the way they retired Mariano Rivera's #42 on his day, but I'm guessing another ceremony is in the works for next year. 

Sarena Williams - The 2013 Dome Pondering Athlete of the Year continued her dominance by winning another grand slam tournament. For the third straight US Open, Williams took home the title. 

5th Grade Planking Record - This is just tremendous. A 5th grade girl planked for one hour and twenty minutes to set a new world record. She watched Scooby Doo episodes while doing it. Amazing. Kudos to the little girl for her determination and accomplishment.

Facebook Accident - When will we learn as a society the dangers of using our smartphones and driving at the same time? Is Facebook really that important? Such a sad (and frustrating) story of what happened in North Dakota. 

Bruce Levenson - OK, so I'll give him credit for turning himself in and selling the team before this became another "Donald Sterling" discovery. However, one has to wonder how many of these racial discussions are pandered around in the offices of NBA organizations? 

Yankees Offense - Putrid. Awful. Nothing else to say here. Seriously, nothing.

President Obama's ISIS Plan - Well, it's been long overdue that it can be considered a "down", but we'll give it a wait and see approach as the President reveals his plan to take on this ISIS issue.

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 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:

Who is in it?

1. Heroes in Las Vegas - Among the heartbreak in Las Vegas are the many heroes who helped shield and save lives during the gun fire, as well as the many in hospitals who did some serious work in aiding the hundreds who flooded the hospitals in the area. Please, please, please be sure to read a story or two of the many who saved so many lives on that horrific night. 
2. Jimmy Kimmel - Kudos to the Kimmel on his opening monologue following the Las Vegas terrorist attack (let's call it what it is). In fact, many of the late show hosts delivered rhetoric that the talking heads on 24 hour networks couldn't, and in many ways, were the words reflective of so many. 
3. MLB Playoffs - Man oh man. How great have the MLB Playoffs been? I've been a nervous wreck with every moment of my New York Yankees. I still stand by it - best playoffs in sports.

1. Las Vegas Shooting Terrorist Attack - Shake. My. Head. Just unbelievable. 
2. Cam Newton - The comment was so unnecessary.…
