The IF Factor: Questions Answered #481-490

481. If you had to name the one thing that repeatedly makes you angriest, what would it be?

Selfish people who have zero regards for others and their well-being. 

482. If you could change one thing about the building you work in, what would you alter?

Wow. I would love to work in a new state-of-the-art athletic facility. The building I currently work in is over 40 years old. Ironically, it will be coming down this year, and a new one will be built in it's footprint. 

483. If you were to prescribe a cure for grief, what would it entail?

It would entail having fun. It just seems natural to me that the opposite of grief - having fun - should be a cure for the emotion.

484. If you were to name the most obnoxious tourists you've encountered, who would they be?

Living in New York City, I live this everyday - the tourist that stops on a dime because the terrible and very cliche photo they must take is so important that they must interrupt everyone's morning commute to work. Yup. Nothing more obnoxious that that camera-wielding knucklehead. 

485. If you had to eliminate forever, one form of weather, what would it be?

Ha - snow. I know some love it. After four years of college in Central New York, I couldn't careless to ever see snow again. Especially as a summer, warm-weather type of guy. I would suggest simply eliminating it from my surroundings forever. 

486. If you could ensure one thing about Heaven besides its existence, what would it be?

Well for one, I can't wait for Heaven. It's going to be so kick-ass. I can't imagine what God has prepared up there. Nonetheless, I hope it has baseball. And I know Heaven is going to be filled with fun and pain free, but since baseball is full of failure, I just hope the good Lord allows that in Heaven so the great game of baseball can continue. 

I know, complex, but hey, I can't wait to play baseball for eternity. 

487. If you could have had any job in history, what would it have been?

I say it all the time - Hotel/Resort reviewer for a major publication. Yes, please pay me to go experience the finest hotels in some of the greatest cities in the world. I'l gladly share with you my opinion. 

488. If you could ensure that one existing law would never be broken by anyone, which would it be?

Child Molestation. Pretty self-explanatory. 

489. If you could have changed one thing about your own wedding ceremony, what would be revised?

Hahahaha. My pants. Somehow I ended up with my brothers pants who wanted them longer than I would have. So I ended up with some pretty baggy pants all day. I'm not sure anyone noticed, but it still bugs me. 

490. If you were to pick the most romantic city or foreign country you have been to, which would win?

Italy. Spent 12 days there touring the entire country and it's greatest cities with my best friend, and tag team partner, aka my wife.

I Wore a Porzingis T-Shirt Today

The comments came all day long, and from everywhere.
"Nice shirt! Love me some Kristaps! If they trade him tonight, I tell you what, I'll help you chant 'Fire Phil'". 
"They better keep the Unicorn in New York."
"Hey, did they trade Porzingis? Please tell me they didn't trade KP!" 
These were some of the comments to come out of random conversations I had with complete and total strangers today as I rocked my Porzingis T-shirt jersey and some bright orange nike's. The move served as a therapeutic last ditch protesting effort to accentuating my (unfortunate) feelings for this basketball team representing this great and wonderful city. I'm with Porzingis. 
The first comment was made by the spry female usher guiding me to my seat at the Barclay's Center. The second was a thirteen year old boy who stood behind me on the Will Call line sparking a conversation of angst, frustration, and disappointment with the team we chose to suppor…

Turning Thirty-Two

Today, I turn thirty-two. There is just something odd about this age - like twenty-three was, or twenty-eight was, you know, the mile markers in between the rest stops - that just doesn't carry the super significance as 21 and 30 did. Although, at this stage of life, there are many mile markers, and those celebratory rest stops are much, much fewer in between. 
Though, it wasn't too long ago I passed a big one - thirty! And if you remember, I loved becoming AND being thirty. To be honest, I enjoyed being thirty-one, and really, thirty-two already seems kick-ass. Call me crazy, my thirties have been VERY enjoyable. 
But as I turn thirty-two, there isn't much significance in the number, but truly, it's about the changes in myself. Thirty was just two years away, and I am already better than that version of myself. This year marked ten years since I've graduated from college (Things I Would tell My college Self), and I am a much better version of myself compared to t…

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.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/31/16

3 Up
1. Awesome Nurse - I'm not fan of snow, but I do think everyone should at least experience it. After all, it's fun as a kid. So, when Lucy, a 7 year old recovering from bone marrow transplant, as well as others in the hospital, were unable to play in the snow storm that hit the North East earlier this week, a nurse braved the cold and mess, and brought the snow in. Sometimes a kind act is more than a simple one. 
2. Angelique Kerber - Beating Serena Williams is no east feat. Beating Williams in the Australian Open final for the Australian championship - very difficult. Kerber pulled off the task. On top of that, she became a Grand Slam champion with the victory. 
3. Radio Hosts Owns Caller - Bigotry lives, and these days, it's coming to the point where people aren't hiding it anymore. Listen to this caller who calls all Muslims, "maggots", his reasoning for it, and how the host really shuts him down.
