The IF Factor: Questions Answered #451-460

451. If you could plan the perfect evening out, what would it involve?

It really doesn't take much for me. I'm a rather simple guy. The perfect evening would be watching a good game (Yankees, Knicks, or Red Bulls) with my wife, a solid dinner, and somehow being able to enjoy it all on a beach. Maybe doing all of it on a beach...in the Caribbean...yup, that's it. That's perfect. 

452. If you could program the perfect evening of television shows, which ones would you select, and in what order?

I'm guessing television shows which would exclude sports? And for the sake of being me, I won't choose any pro wrestling as well. 

The Wonder Years. Everybody Loves Raymond. Friday Night Lights. The Cosby Show. And Suits. 

That's a lot of television for me. That would easily be a week for me. Yes, I know, I don't watch much television.

453. If you had to name the dumbest purchase you've ever made, which would it be?

Other than a few video games during my childhood that I hoped would be good, the only thing that comes to mind is a Pittsburgh Pirates I once bought on-line at Marshalls. It was $6. I wore it once, because well, I'm not a Pirates fan.

Come to think of it, I also bought one of those red "memorial day" Yankee hats on the line of Marshalls as well - also $6. Stupid Marshalls. 

454. If you could receive all the products from a single company for free (but could not resell them), which company would you choose?

Nike. Can't really go wrong there. 

455. If you had to describe the perfect body, what would you say about it?

Athletic and lean. I've never been one for guys who are so jacked up they look like balloons or comic book characters come to life. 

456. If you could have the autograph of one person from history, who would it be?

Mariano Rivera. I know, I'm sure there is someone else that would be worth more, but Mo's is one I know I would really appreciate. Like frame and place on the wall, appreciate. 

457. If you could have any view from your home, what would it be?

Beach. Ocean. Sand, Sunsets and Sunrises. 

458. If you could have asked Richard Nixon one thing, what would you have asked?

If you could do it all over again, what would you do differently in regards to Watergate?

459. If you could have the world's largest collection of one thing, what would it be?

I'm not really one for gathering or "collecting" many things. As stated earlier, I'm a simple guy. But I guess I would go with baseball cards. Anything else probably would be a nuisance in my apartment. 

460. If you could have been the hero from any war, which war would it be, and for what heroic deed?

World War II. Capturing Adolph Hitler.

Harper, Machado, and...Moustakas? - Someone Sign Em' All!

As we await the breaking news of what team Bryce Harper and Manny Machado (or Machado and Harper, however you have them ranked) will sign with, let's ponder my crazy thought and wish, if you will, for the current MLB off-season.

No, this is not a campaign for my Yankees to sign one of them. And for the record, Yankees fans need to chill - the moves made this off-season have been awesome.

And no, let's not talk labor discussions. Its very obvious front offices have possibly learned from the mistakes of the past on long-term deals for huge amounts of money. Though, it only takes one owner with radical thinking to put a wrinkle into it all (my wish includes this very GM!).

I'm talking something that is not necessarily unprecedented, but an occurrence that possible could give MLB the national attention it hasn't gotten in a long time, and really, placing the game of baseball on the front burner of main stream appeal.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/21/19

3 Up

1.Katelyn Ohashi - Her performance went viral this week, and as many have already stated, it's impossible to watch Ohashi's performance and NOT feel happy. Just awesome, awesome stuff. Plus, she is insanely talented!

2. Nathan Phillips - So much props to Phillips who earned plenty of respect for his poise and patience when facing the group of MAGA students attempting to intimidate, annoy, and shame him. Phillips' integrity came through even more after having the floor to share his opinion on what happened - never outright throwing shade at the students. The dude has plenty of character.

3. MLK Weekend - Dr. King is a such a hero of mine. I'm always in awe of this weekend, of his life, of his thoughts, of his words, of his character, and even so on the contrary, how often his words, missions, and ideals are misconstrued today.

1. MAGA Teenagers - This video wraps up white privilege in the United States. By the way, it's also amazing how little has been sa…

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.
