Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/9/16


3 Up

1. Russell Westbrook - I know the NBA's MVP debate is a good one. Really, a suffice argument can be made for all the options in the discussion. However, Westbrook is my guy. 42 triple doubles! Averaged - AVERAGED - a Triple Double this season! And yes, has led the Thunder to the playoffs! That's my pick - my guy. And I hope to have a post up this week with more on Westbrook. Unbelievable. 

2. Girl with Black Doll - Kudos to the two year old girl who selected a black doll for her mom to purchase, and defended her choice against the cashier, who questioned her choice, and did so with the innocence only a child could have. The gall of adults sometimes? Unbelievable. 

3. Warm Weather - It's FINALLY showing some signs of life in the weather department. Spring is definitely on it's way. Can't wait. Had to give this some love. You all know I love me some warm weather. 

3 Down

1. Syria Gas Attack - What else can I say that hasn't been said, or isn't already known. This is awful. And it's heartbreaking to think that this is the day-to-day reality of some in Syria. 

2. Egypt Church Bombings - Just when the world couldn't get any more brutal, we see the awful scenes from church bombings in Egypt on Palm Sunday. At times it feels like things aren't so bad, then the world and it's evil forces swiftly and continuously remind you of how ruthless things can be. Ugh...my heart and prayers to everyone in Syria and Egypt. 

3. Pepsi Advertisement - Who approved this commercial? Seriously, who in their right mind gave this the green light? It's very obvious the top execs in corporate America are white men who don't understand social justice, and aren't truly connected to reality. And oh yeah, shame on the Kardashians for accepting and going along with this gig. But for them, anything for fame, right?

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 …

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:

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…
