Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/28/16

3 Up

1. Post -Boko Haram Abductors Rebuild - Lost in the entire terrorist outlook is the damage that Boko Haram is doing in West Africa. This article gives good insight into that issue, as well as the efforts to help the women who are abducted by this evil group, rebuild and start new lives. 

2. Steph Curry - The dude is an absolute beast! After dropping 51 points on Friday night, Curry returned to torch the Thunder for 46, to tie the NBA record for most threes in one game, AND to break his own record for most three pointers in a season, with 24 games still left to go. OH! And how about that 32 foot jump shot to win the game. No biggie. Just Steph. 

3. Lionel Messi - Kudos to Messi on following up on his word that he would meet the Afghan boy who was a big fan of his. Messi was cool enough to give him two autographed jerseys (real ones so he didn't have to wear trash bags like he was in the viral photo). A really, really cool story. 

3 Down

1. Oscars - For the fourth year in a row, I decided to not watch the Oscars for the obvious reasons that makes it "controversial". However, despite Hollywood's approach to not change it's ways on the issue, I found the use of the said controversy and the serious issue for entertainment to be distasteful. Just me, but the Oscars still feels like a door opened for only a few people. This kid from Brooklyn can't relate. Sorry. 

2. Kansas Shooting - Another mass shooting. Ugh. It just makes me angry. We've become so desensitized to this type of violence. 

3. Chris Christie - Endorsing Trump, huh? After all he had to say and attack when he was in the race, now he is for him? Sounds like someone is angling for a position. Which just makes politics so much more politics - if you get my drift. Ultimately, which just makes me lose respect for Christie.

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

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…
