Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/19/16

3 Up

1. Father's Day - A big shout out and major props to all of the men out there doing their part raising their kids, and helping to shape the future of our world. Especially, these days, when such credible men are disappearing 

2. Gun Control Discussion - It's a bit refreshing to see that the discussion on gun control isn't just hot air, but something that many are taking seriously. The U.S. Supreme Court may take action, and of course, even Bill O'Reilly shocked us all with a viewpoint that was well...un-O'Reilly-like. 

3. LeBron James - He. Got. It. Done! Kudos to James for bringing a title to Cleveland under all of the scrutiny he's been under since a teenager. Really, really, really happy for that dude. 

3 Down

1. Westboro Baptist Church - The fact that these folks, in some people's eyes, rperesent Christians and their values really bothers me. But it is what it is. Regardless, seeing these people go down to Orlando to protest is disgusting. The absolute worst. 

2. Splash Mountain Alligator - It was tremendously sad to hear about the child who was found dead in Florida after being taken by an Alligator. Occurrences like that are just mind boggling, especially when the gator just rolled up on a beach were patrons are. So scary. 

3. Stephen A. Smith - Claiming Ayesha Curry needs to "know her place" is utterly ridiculous. On top of that, claiming he would have never lost the OJ Simpson trial - head scratching. But hey, we all give in and give him attention.

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 …

Goodbye Melo

I've wanted this for the Knicks, and today I got it.

Carmelo Anthony is no longer a New York Knick heading into the 17-18 NBA Season.

No, I don't dislike Melo. In fact, if you go through previous posts you'll know, I find Melo to be a very, very good player. However, I just thought it was time for the Knicks to move past this era, and truly - like, really - rebuild.

Most importantly, build around Kristaps Porzingis.

But, again, for me, I've always - ALWAYS - believed that Carmelo Anthony needed to be the #2 (or #3) guy on a team. Watching him night in and night out as a Knick, he just never seemed to be the type of guy who lifts those around him. Again, he's a tremendous player but the track record is there. I don't buy into the "he's never had much around him" argument.

Have you seen the Knicks roster in comparison to the rest of the Eastern Conference the last few years?
