Would You Rather: Questions 41-50

41. Would you rather have free Starbucks for a year or free iTunes for a year? 

Call me crazy, but I am going with free Starbucks for a year. Free ITunes sounds great, but I already have a Spotify account that I already enjoy tremendously. Plus, I live in NYC, and there is a Starbucks like every ten feet. 

42. Would you rather be a ninja or a wizard? 

Ninja! Way cooler, and way more fun. I've seen my wife watch Harry Potter. No offense, not really moved by being a wizard, unless, it's the opportunity to play pro basketball in Washington. 

43. Would you rather go deaf in one ear or only be allowed to use the internet one hour per day?

This is tough, but I am going to go with going deaf in one ear. The internet is so essential in today's world, especially in how I consume information and of course, explore one of my favorite hobbies in contributing to this little blog.

44. Would you rather only wear 80's clothes or only 80's hairstyles? 

80's hairstyles. Bad ass and eccentric. 80's clothes all of the time makes you look weird and a little off the rocker to others who see you daily. 

45. Would you rather be able to listen to any song with your mind, or be able to watch your dreams on your television?

I prefer to listen to any song in my mind. A weird mental Spotify would be fantastic. Watching my dreams on television really doesn't move me. Blah. Eh. 

46. Would you rather live in a five star prison, or the poorest country in the world? 

Give me freedom over everything. Any prison, no matter how nice, is just that, prison. 

47. Would you rather always know when someone is lying, or always get away with lying? 

Always knowing when someone is lying would be absolutely fantastic. Just utterly fantastic! Think about all of the ways you can mess with people and catch them in their lies. Or how about the opportunity to make life decisions based on knowing the truth in a situation? So yeah, guess which one I am going with? 

48. Would you rather be always overdressed or always underdressed? 

Underdressed. Wayyyyyy more comfortable, and produces and atmosphere to conform more often that being formal. 

49. Would you rather be the opposite gender for a day, or be a kid again for a day? 

Be a kid again. I'm not sure I have any desire to be a woman for a day, plus, I would love to have the responsibilities and free mindset of a kid for one day. 

50. Would you rather have the opportunity to explore all of earth, or have the opportunity to go to space? 

This is a really, really good one. I would go with exploring earth. While space is an extremely rare opportunity, exploring the entire world is something I truly enjoy, and would produce multiple experiences within that option.

Dear Son, Letting In and Letting Go

--25 Weeks Old (Before Birth)--
Dear Son, 
The word is now spreading to more and more people about your existence, or eventual arrival - however, you prefer to look at it - and it feels like a fire that is now out of our control. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but as mentioned in prior letters to you, your mother and I are pretty methodical in how we divulge news about our private lives. 
Truthfully, your mother is definitely more willing to share news than I am, and you'll eventually see that one day. Maybe I'll change, who knows? But the truth is, because of the nature in how I grew up, in the neighborhood that I did, and really, the independence that I had to attain early on, I've always been late to share things with others. That's just who I am. It's probably why I have had this very blog since I was sixteen - to let those thoughts out somewhere.

March Sadness

This post has been coming for awhile, and it now seems like the best time to do so...
So, here goes...
Division I Basketball is getting more and more difficult for me to watch and support. 
Just like I once laid out regarding my ethical feelings towards the NFL (and really, football, overall), thus is the same credence and feelings I have developing for Division I Basketball - mainly the NCAA's approach to it. Now of course, my feelings aren't something new as many share my thoughts and opinions on this - the NCAA is corrupt and college basketball is a sham. But for me, it goes even deeper - certain programs, coaches, and communities enable this exploitation of young men. And yes, many shy away from that word, but that's exactly what college basketball has become, an exploitation of services.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 3/18/18

3 Up 
1. UMBC - I'm really struggling to watch these tournament games. The games have been entertaining, but morally, I can't stomach the exploitation of these young men (more on that some other time). Regardless, kudos to the young men of UMBC who made history this week. I'm thrilled to see such a program make headlines, and of course, for a coach from the DII and DIII ranks who did it the right way. 
2. UMBC Social Media Team - Yo, whoever is running the UMBC Twitter following their defeat of Virginia deserves a raise. There was some serious shade being thrown, and to be honest, everyone who was in their way in some ways, deserves it. 
3. 2018 Paralympics - Oddly, I watched a tremendous amount of these games and was totally in awe of the athletes. Shockingly, the hockey games were super entertaining to me. So much love and credit to those who participated, and even more importantly, continue to persevere despite disabilities.

1. Florida Bridge Collapse - So sad. I…
