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 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.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 3/11/18

3 Up
1. Basketball Student-Athletes - I'm not talking the programs, or the fans that support these programs. I'm giving the "Up" to those student-athletes who sacrifice and give their all for an experience they are about to embark on. Good luck to all of those who competed up onto this point, and those moving on in the NCAA Tournament. 
2. Unsolved - This weekend, the wife and I started this latest series on the USA Network about the Murders of Biggie Smalls and Tupac. So far, it has been especially good. Well done, well detailed, and very dramatic. Giving a personal recommendation on this one. 
3. MLS Soccer Sundays - Good to have Soccer Sundays back. And the first weekend, the MLS provided some very entertaining games, including Atlanta FC setting a new record for single-game attendance at over 72,000. Who said soccer isn't big in this country? 
3 Down
1. White House School Safety Plan - I CAN NOT believe our leaders believe gun training for teachers is a viable…

The Pondering 10 - Favorite MLB Uniforms

Unlike most sports, baseball uniforms carry a lot of tradition and history. It's rare that you see baseball teams deviate away from the history of a club, and if they do, it's usually an ownership change. For the most part, in baseball, the uniforms are sacred. Because of that, Major League Baseball has many teams with uniforms that are very, very significant, and also, very stylish. As we did for the NFL (Pondering 10 - Favorite NFL Uniforms), the following Pondering 10 will take a look at my favorite MLB uniforms.

The Pondering 10 - Favorite Things I Miss as a Kid

As I get older, the thoughts of childhood memories become fonder and fonder especially as the distance between that time and the present grows. As an adult, you watch the current generation doing certain things, and despite not exactly being in agreement with their ways, it takes you back to a certain time when you were in their position and how you enjoyed those crucial years for any individual. With summer in mid-swing, recently, I've become jealous of many youth because of what I remembered participating in as a child. Because of this, the following Pondering 10 will list my favorite things I miss as a kid:

2013 Bucket List - #26 Encourage a Guest Post - "Football: Dislike"

In a year where the DP has branched out to other sites, it's only natural that we have other contributors do so on this platform as well. As one of my goals for 2013, I wanted to have a guest blogger, and decided to go with my tag team partner (my wife for you DP newbies). See, she has an undying dislike for football, and I thought it would make for a good piece, would provide common ground for those that feel the same way, and of course, instant therapy for her problem with America's phenomenon. So without further adieu, here it is:
