Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/3/15

3 Up

1. Riot Interrupting Mom - The visual has already gone viral, but the mom who recognized her teenage son in the middle of the Baltimore riots and thus gave him a good ole fashioned parental clubbing was nice to see. Good for mom, and to those finding issue with her doing so are really missing the point on parenting.

2. Stephen Curry - Curry will be named the NBA's MVP tomorrow. Good for him as he clearly deserves it. It's also very nice to see the NBA champion new faces and deserving players rather than the usual suspects.

3. Homeless Man Tithing - Read this story a few days ago and it put things back into perspective for me. Sometimes we need that, and this man's generosity exemplifies that. 

3 Down

1. Baltimore Riots - What can we say here? Another touchy and very layered subject. However, regardless, those who were rioting, whatever the cause may be (e.g. frustration), tearing down communities is not justified approach.

2. Social Media/Protesters - Protesters across the nation doings so for Baltimore now seems so ineffective. Just seems like a reason for people to be unruly or a part of something rather than a cause for change. Especially the thumb warriors on social media. Just my opinion.

3. Jamie Foxx - Gosh, talk about an absolute butchering of our National Anthem on such a big stage. Why does everyone want to make the anthem their own? Just sing it as it is written.

Dome Pondering Export - "TNA's Biggest Problem Is..."

After ten years of importing materials, words, pictures, and videos from other sites her for your viewing and for archiving, I never thought I'd get to the point where I'd be EXPORTING material out to other sites. Yes, the DP continues to grow, and yours truly had the kind opportunity to contribute a guest column to an awesome Pro Wrestling blog with a very large audience. The piece has since been very well received, and I hope to have the opportunity to do so in the future, and maybe even other sites and avenues as well. 
You can read the column here on the TNAsylum website (special thanks to them as well for posting), or the entire text below:

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/15/17

3 Up
1. Hollywood Victims - Much props to the many men and women who have taken the step in telling their story about sexual assault and being the victim of displays of power for sexual gain within Hollywood. It's tough, especially in such an unforgiving business like show business, but it takes guts to tell the truth - much respect to you all who did so.
2. Joe Girardi - Have you ever seen a more brutally honest manager or head coach during a playoff stretch? Girardi has been letting his soul bare on mistakes, feelings, lineups, results, decisions, his family, his time in New York, and anything and everything else. I have a feeling Girardi is walking away, after this season, and if he is, I'm glad he's doing it by just being him. 
3. Eminem - I've seen some new school fans insult Eminem and downplaying his ability. I'm still a fan. After all, no one - NO ONE - captures anger in their music like Em. No one. Still so captivating. And yes, his freestyle of President …

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Wonder Woman (2017)

What is it about?

When a pilot crashes into her world, Diana, an Amazonian Warrior, leaves home to help fight a war and fulfill her true destiny. 
Who is in it? 

Gal Gadot - Diana
Chris Pine - Steve Trevor

Damn, I Love This Team

Damn. I love this team. 
I don't know what it is, or what spurred this immediate attachment in Spring Training, but I just do. Maybe it was the idea of hope and all of the wonders and excitement it brings. You know, when your squad finally ditches the old expensive brigade and gives the keys to the prospects we've been hearing about. 
Maybe that was it. 
Or, maybe it was the excitement produced by Gary Sanchez just the year before. And the near-miss of the playoffs the team teased the year prior. 
Or...maybe it was just the idea of dancing around the word "rebuilding" and having no (not low) expectations for the 2017 season. Quite frankly, we were playing with house cards, and that's a fun position to be in as a fan. 
Of course, Judge happened (Sooooooo much fun). And it happened 52 times - really 53 if we count that one home run that didn't get counted and was ruled a triple. But whose counting? 
And one of my favorites in David Robertson returned in pinstr…
