Sunday Sundown Rundown - 7/10/16

3 Up

1. Diamond Reynolds - The girlfriend of Philando Castile, Reynolds who showed the craziest amount of poise, honor, and integrity of anyone I can ever think of. We all wish we could have half the guts that woman has shown this week. 

2. Carmelo Anthony - While some celebrities and athletes did their pointless parts on social media, I gained major respect for Carmelo Anthony who called out athletes to begin taking a stance on social injustice. 

3. John Cena - With the United States crumbling around social issues, John Cena continued doing the right thing as he made a young cancer survivor's night by inviting him into the ring this Monday on Raw. 

3 Down

1. Shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile - Do I even need to go in depth on this? Just unbelievable and saddening. So, so, sad...and infuriating. 

1. Dallas Shootings - Tied for number one on the "down" this week is of course the Dallas Police shootings. This entire week just sucked. My heart goes out to the loved ones of those five officers who lost their lives. 

3. Opposers of BLM Movement - I don't quite understand how anyone can look at the Black Lives Matter movement and consider it anything but necessary. Those attempting to change the narrative to #AllLivesMatter and anything else is gravely missing the issue at hand. Either that, or are just suffering from a large sense of privilege. Yup, you got it from me. That's my stance. Always has been.

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?
