Sunday Sundown Rundown - 7/5/15

3 Up

1. America! - The holiday weekend was nice to enjoy, including all of the patriotism and good things we enjoy in this nation. It was desperately needed following many of the internal social issues we've been having as of late. 

2. US Women's National Soccer - Champs! What else is there to say? The USWNT made adjustments and tough decisions like benching legend, Abby Wambach, and my adult soccer crush, Sydney Leroux (don't worry, the wife knowws), and improved every game on the road to this win. It was a fun ride that hopefully increases the exposure of soccer in this nation. 

3. Becky Hammon - If girl power isn't already in the air already, kudos to the San Antonio Spurs and Becky Hammon as she becomes the first female head coach in the NBA Summer League.

1. Chicago - Just when July 4th weekend was a great way to get our minds off domestic issues, the city of Chicago reminded us what real America is currently like. The city continued it's claim as the murder capital of the US with 27 injured and 3 dead over the span of 8 hours, including a horrific and senseless death of a 7 year old. Something needs to be done about Chi-town...seriously. 

2. Donald Trump - Political affairs and beliefs aside, did he really believe he could make a comment about immigrants and not receive backlash? A man of his wealth can't be that stupid, right? I'm beginning to believe this is just a vanity run for Trump. 

3. Black Confederate - This woman seriously said "slavery was a choice". Wow. Yes, we have a candidate for the 2015 Idiot of the Year. 

1 Heartbreak

1. England Women's National Soccer - With family roots and ties to England, I really was pulling for the Lionesses in this World Cup. Such a shame to see the own-goal cost them a trip to the Finals which would've made for an interesting post-July 4th against the US. And yes, everyone needs to lay off Laura Bassett, she made an honest play that just went wrong.

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 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:

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

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/8/17

1. Heroes in Las Vegas - Among the heartbreak in Las Vegas are the many heroes who helped shield and save lives during the gun fire, as well as the many in hospitals who did some serious work in aiding the hundreds who flooded the hospitals in the area. Please, please, please be sure to read a story or two of the many who saved so many lives on that horrific night. 
2. Jimmy Kimmel - Kudos to the Kimmel on his opening monologue following the Las Vegas terrorist attack (let's call it what it is). In fact, many of the late show hosts delivered rhetoric that the talking heads on 24 hour networks couldn't, and in many ways, were the words reflective of so many. 
3. MLB Playoffs - Man oh man. How great have the MLB Playoffs been? I've been a nervous wreck with every moment of my New York Yankees. I still stand by it - best playoffs in sports.

1. Las Vegas Shooting Terrorist Attack - Shake. My. Head. Just unbelievable. 
2. Cam Newton - The comment was so unnecessary.…
