Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/1/15

3 Up

1. Super Bowl 49 - After a complete dud last year, this year's edition of the "Big Game" gave us quite the game with an ending (more on that in a bit) that gave us enough controversy to offer a riveting finish. 

2. Sarena Williams - Another Australian Open, another Major Title Win. Her 19th, and Sarena continues to win, win, win, and win. One of the greatest athletes of my lifetime. 

3. Bottom Line Scroll - This one was recommended by the tag team partner - here is a pretty funny video of a little boy who was attempting to stop the bottom line scroll on the television. 

3 Down

1. Pete Carroll - Pretty obvious, right? Who OK'ed a pass play on the goal line? Why don't you use Marshawn Lynch? That pass was probably the worst play call I've ever seen in a big game in my lifetime. 

2. Failed Teacher - Another blackeye on our education system, especially here in New York City. A teacher who has had low evaluation ratings and has had failing students for six consecutive years, will keep her job and her lofty $84, 500 salary. Ugh. Our country needs true education reform. 

3. Snowstorm Critics - Those of us here in NYC lucked out after Juno didn't pack as much as anticipated. However, those who decided to criticize weather forecasters, meteorologists, and city officials are just ignorant. You got a day off, and safety precautions were taken. Chill out.

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:
