Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/8/15

3 Up

1. Adele - Hello....I'm Sorrrrrry! Gosh, Adele is such a throwback to when artists made music that truly inspired, and you know, took time to make their albums. Quality over quantity. Imagine that? Her first single was released this week and I'm already awaiting the album. I just can't get the single out of her head. 

2. Protests of and through Football - If you read this blog, you know I'm not a big football fan. In fact,  as I get older, the more I move away from the game. I actually find the importance we place on the game (and pardons given) in this country to be horrifying. Yet, kudos to Wendi Nix who poignantly made comments in regards to the NFL and Greg Hardy, as well as the University of Missouri football players who are protesting by not playing until the school President is removed for his inaction against racism on campus. 

3. MLS Playoffs - How awesome hve the MLS playoffs been this weekend? Especially that insane Seattle Sounders/FC Dallas game? Here is to hoping the long layoff doesn't affect the momentum. 

3 Down

1. Possible Bombed Russian Plane - Ugh...The thought that officials are coming to the conclusion that the downed Russian passenger jet which tragically broke apart over Egypt last week could have been a bomb more so leans towards the initial celebration of the ISIS group who took responsibility for it immediately. Gosh, so sickening! Such wickedness in this world...

2. Evangelical Starbucks Protest - Obviously, I'm a Christian. I've never held that in an ambiguous or non-disclosed way on this site. However, some of these Christian and evangelical groups who are attacking Starbucks for the new "Holiday" design cups need to chill. It's reasons such as this which continue to divide us from many today. Seriously, they're just cups! Who cares?! 

3. Seth Rollins Injury - This was difficult to read as Seth Rollins was having such a great year for the WWE. Rollins, an absolute workhorse, was in the middle of a big year, and now is out for the next 8-9 months. Tough break for the WWE, for Rollins, and more so, for all of us pro wrestling fans.

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…
