The IF Factor: Questions Answered #441-450

441. If you could pick one famous person to be your neighbor, who would you have next door to you?

Harold Reynolds. He's not super famous, but the guy is well-known enough to be pretty awesome to live next to. Being able to talk baseball with Reynolds would be a pretty sweet deal. 

442. If you could change one thing about your home, what would you make different?

Well, since I live in an apartment in New York City, I guess my answer would be to live in a home...with space, a backyard, a garage, and a basketball hoop in the driveway. Yes, sometimes I jones for that life - sue me. 

443. If you had to choose the most important single event of this current century, what would win the honor?

September 11th, 2001. I truly believe our world change in many ways following those horrible tragedies.

444. If you were asked what to put in a new breakfast cereal box as a gimmick, what would you pick?

Coupons for more cereal. That's the adult in me. The kid in my would say toys, but kids don't play with toys anymore. So maybe a free download of a future video game yet to be released? 

445. If you could change one thing about your city or town or neighborhood, what would you alter?

Less crime. New York City is as safe as it's ever been since growing up here. However, being even safer would be nice, especially in some neighborhoods. 

446. If you had to pick the most important quality for a leader of your country, what would it be?

Integrity. 

447. If you had to describe your worst medical experience, what would it be?

I guess it would be the three surgeries I had on my feet as an infant. It delayed my walking, and changed my active life forever. 

448. If you could go back in time just long enough to tell the founding fathers of America one thing, what would you tell or warn them of?

Abolish slavery from the beginning. Imagine if the slave trade never happened, what would race relations in our country - even the world - be like. Also, if granted a second chance to ask another, I would ask for them to clarify the "right to bare arms" amendment which has left us to too many interpretations for so long.  

449. If you could eliminate one habit you have, what would you stop doing?

Staying up late. I'm easily a night person - it's when I blog, get work done if needed, and do my best thinking. However, as I get older, I'm learning I can't burn both ends as well as I used to. And getting up early is more important now than it has ever been. And shockingly, getting up earlier just works better as an adult. 

450. If you could have witnessed any biblical event, what would you want to see?

To be there when the stone was removed and the guards realized Jesus was not in the tomb. I can only imagine what that day was like when everyone realized he arose. Imagine that?

One More Year of Possible Frustration. A Future of Guaranteed Idiocy.

One Year.

After all the drama, after all of the controversy, it now comes down to one year for Isiah Thomas to turn around the mess that he created. Isiah has one year to improve the group of misfits that he has put together for an NBA roster.

One Year.

Good luck Isiah.

The fact of the matter is that the Knicks are a mess. They have become arguably the most embarassing franchise in sports. A collection of high-priced players with no resumes of winning else where combined with a lack of leadership on the coaching, front office and ownership level is a combustible formula for any sports organization. It's sad. It's sad to see an organization that is used to winning and has a history of greatness and class reduced to nothing. Guys such as Patrick Ewing, Clyde Frazier and Willis Reed all who have worn that illustrious blue and Orange "New York" across their chests with pride and dignity are now an afterthought. Madison Square Garden - the mecca of basketball, and most hi…

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/21/18

3 Up
1. Women's March - I'm happy to see this movement wasn't just a reactionary thing to last year's happenings, but one that continues to move forward. It's a continue reminder that the fight for equality for us all is still ongoing. 
2. Aly Raisman - Raisman stood up land et the world know what was done to her and how corrupt USA gymnastics currently is. She really left it all out there, and it was quite eyebrow raising. It was also just as sickening to hear what has been going on, and what has been covered up. 
3. Tom Brady and the Patriots - Give the man his due. Brady is 40 years old and still winning. I don't care for the Super Bowl all that much anymore, but I recognize and respect the greatness. It's a once-in-a-generation deal, and I appreciate it. 
3 Down
1. Government Shutdown - Ugh. Come on...I don't care whose fault it is, this is a disaster. 
2. Deportation of Jorge Garcia - Look, I'm going to say something I'm sure will divide tho…

The Pondering 10 - All-Time Favorite Championship Belts

With the WWE finally moving on from the ridiculousness that was the appearance of the WWE championship (Really, they kept a spinning title for eight years), and of course the unveiling the look of the title, it got the wheels turning on the best looks for championship belts. From pro wrestling, boxing (although, don't expect to see any on this list as they are usually ugly), and mixed martial arts, there are plenty of different models, types, and appearances that come with them. The following Pondering 10 list is my favorite all-time championship belts.

2014 Bucket List #31 - Attend a TNA Wrestling Taping

I've been hoping (really hoping!) for the longest time that TNA would bring a batch of TNA tapings to this wonderful city. Every time they decided to take an Impact broadcast on the road, or hype the announcement of the location of a future pay-per-view, I genuinely think in my head - OK, this is it, they're coming babaaay! NYC!
Ummmmm, yeah. Not so much. And I'm left disappointed whenever the announcement is made. Sometimes it's a city that I just tip my hat and say, "Alright, enjoy the show chicago!" Or I just end up shaking my head in annoyance while I'm raging inside with comments like - Miami?!!! Seriously! That's where you're going? Over us?!
