Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/28/15

3 Up

1. Lara Logan - After her near death experience while reporting in Egypt in 2011, where she was beaten and sexually assaulted by a mob, Lara Logan is rumored to be ready to head back to her post as a reporter for CBS News. Kudos to Logan on the road to recovery. And for returning to her career. 

2. Jake Arrieta - Another near perfect game on Sunday Night Baseball, but Arrieta will settle for the consolation of another win towards his 21-7 record. Oh yeah, he also hit a home run. Is he not the NL Cy Young Award winner? 

3. Lunar Eclipse - How cool was the moon tonight? I won't even begin to describe what type of eclipse it was. All I know is that it was really cool to see. 

3 Down

1. Yogi Berra - It was sad to hear of the death of Yogi Berra this week. To hear of his accomplishments within baseball and what he meant to the game was a nice reminder, especially for a thirty year old like myself who may sometimes think of some of these guys as just old lore. He lived a quality enough life where many are discussing him as a person rather than his accomplishments. Thanks for all of it, Yogi! (Remembering Yogi Berra)

2. Freddie Gray Story - Just when things have died down in this realm of social issues, we are now getting details regarding what was told by some Police Officers, and what Freddie Gray may have said to police officers. Such a mess. 

3. Jonathan Papelbon - He's a good pitcher. But man, this guy is such a clown. Choking your team's best player, the potential NL MVP? Not a good idea. Doing so after coming to the team mid-season? Not a good idea? Engaging this fight after the Nationals were eliminated from the playoffs? Not a good idea. Need I say more? 

1 What Are You Doing? 

1. Brandon Marshall Lateral - Making a catch and then throwing the football back for a lateral? C'mon man? Seriously, c'mon, bruh. After a 2-0 start, my Jets were pretty much very Jet-like today.

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…
