Would You Rather: Questions #21-30

21. Would you rather live in Harry Potter's world or a life of fame and wealth?

Umm, I have note yet read any of the Harry Potter books or see any of the movies. I know, I know. Though, I've gotten the gist of the film by being around it, and of course, seeing many playing the game of quidditch. With that said - yeaaaaaaaah - give me a life of fame and wealth. Keep your sorcery. 

22. Would you rather date a celebrity of your choice or the hottest person you know?

The hottest person I know. I know them for their physical attractiveness, as well, as for who they are. Win, win. Plus, celebs are nuts. I don't need that type of drama in my life. 

23. Would you rather fly or be able to read minds?

Fly. Reading minds is way to intrusive for me. It removes too much of the mystery that makes life interesting.

24. Would you rather get a dream vacation or spend five days with anyone you want but remain in your hometown?

Ummmm, yeah. Just give me the the dream vacation. 

25. Would you rather have more time per day or more money per day?

Money is always great, but I am one of those people that never finds enough time in the day to do everything I want. It's probably the reason I stay up so late, and sacrifice sleep. Maybe thirty hours for the day? I would add those hours to my sleep schedule. 

26. Would you rather win the lottery or live twice as long?

Win the lottery. Once in a lifetime, right? 

27. Would you rather be a lawyer or a doctor?

This is interesting. I've been told since college that I have the skills to be a lawyer. However, I like the idea of helping people as most lawyers in my opinion, are annoying. For the sake of the question, and because I'm utterly torn on this, I am going with lawyer. I'll be one of those good-guy lawyers. You know, fight for those who don't have a voice...and all that. 

28. Would you rather have a rewind button in your life or a pause button?

Pause button. Mistakes are part of life. In some ways, they make life beautiful. 

29. Would you rather being able to communicate with animals or be able to speak all foreign languages?

Talking to Pandas, my favorite animals, would be utterly fantastic. Regardless, being able to speak all foreign languages provides you with a certain connection and access to other humans. I like the idea of the latter much more. 

30. Would you rather mentally never age or physically never age - at your current age?

Ooooh, so easy. Keep me physically at thirty-one. I'm good with that. But NEVER would I want to remain stagnant mentally. That's not living in my eyes.

Dope Sports Threads - MLB Player's Weekend Gear

I love everything about MLB Player's Weekend. From the moment it was rumored way back over the winter, I have been anticipating the announcements of what I feel is baseball finally - FINALLY - looking to modernize itself. Well, at least just a bit. Baby steps.

While I love MLB Uniforms and the tradition that comes with them, I do get annoyed with the over-abundance and wacky uniforms we see from the NBA. With that said, I like the idea of keeping this to one weekend. Where it becomes sort of a spectacle. And it is thus far.

Ultimately, I like that players are getting more say so in changing the antequated mentality that baseball currently has here in the States. Regardless, I'm sure most have seen the names, the uniforms and the gear. Here are my thoughts on the ones that caught my eye:

Unpacking Thoughts on Charlottesville

This weekend has been exhausting. Despite the constant systemic injustice that is the United States of America, it's a moment like this weekend that is delivered and must be unpacked and discussed carefully in the pursuit of social justice - justice that is long deserved. 
There is plenty wrapped up in everything that is Charlottesville, Virigina. This is deep, spans back to the beginning of this nation, and is a result of current times as well. 
I'm still decompressing it all. Here are a few quick thoughts as I too wrap my mind, my emotions, and my intellect and rationale around it:

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 8/13/17

3 Up
1. Los Angeles Dodgers - In a rough week where the real world just crushes us, the dominance of the Dodgers is one that leaves us in awe, and can take us out into something great for a few minutes. 
2. Derek Jeter The Owner - Is there anything that Derek Jeter loses at? The Captain is now part owner of the Miami Marlins, and get this - will be the first owner and CEO of color within MLB. That's HUGE. 
3. Married at 98 - These two are getting married at 98 (He's 94). How about they both workout at the gym twice-a-week, and met there. So cool in so many ways. Good for them! 
3 Down
1. Charlottesville - So many layers to this story. Hate. History. The ridiculous response from our President. And the apparent shock some in this country have that people are out there who still have this ideology. Point blank, this was terrorism. 
2. Trump and North Korea - Just before Charlottesville, Trump talked tough for absolutely no reason in a back-and-forth that unfortunately effects hund…

Pondering Picture #81

An establishment cannot uphold systemic injustice, and attempt to condemn it, simultaneously.

My prayers (and of course my thoughts...so many thoughts) are with Charlottesville, Virgina, and the many people of color who have endured through these scenes and images over the course of history.
