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?

Making Sense of The Bible, Politics, and Immigration

They use the Bible.
For any Christian, or any person that believes in the Good Book and trusts in Jesus for faith, for life, for eternity, it always is a point of contention, a source of struggle, and a subject that truly tears the heart apart - using the Bible to justify action. And in this case, specifically cruel and inhumane action. 
By that statement, you already know where I stand. And if you read and follow this blog, you already know where I did. Yet, after Jeff Sessions used Romans 13:1 as a means to justify the removal of immigrant children from their parents at the Southern Border, as a Christian, as someone who believes heavily in that book and in the faith of Christ, I'm left utterly appalled, angry, upset, and disappointed. 
Shockingly enough, much like what was promised in "Making America Great Again", we are seeing this country reverse into some dark times and questionable actions that reflect those specific times. Times that may have been great for any …

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/17/18

3 Up
1. Father's Day - Always a special day of the year, kudos to all of the men who are engaged and active fathers around the world. I had several wishes of "Happy Father's Day" today, and yes, it was weird. Hoping to officially join the club with my initiation year coming up. 
2. The Incredibles 2 - Honestly, it was was one of the movies I would have picked to end my now decade long-movie-theater-free streak. Yes folks, it's been over ten years now. I should probably put up a countdown on the site. Nonetheless, kudos to I2 for raking in over $180 Million over the weekend. And yes, this sequel is so long overdue. 
3. The World Cup - It's been absolutely incredible since the start. With many upsets and poor outings from some powerhouses, the tournament is already flipped upside down. We saw an epic Ronaldo performance, and a Messi letdown continuing that epic debate. Also, it's pretty interesting to watch those who fancy themselves "BIG" sports …

Dear Son: Next Weekend!

--38 Weeks (Before Birth)--
Dear Son, 
This is going to sound absolutely absurd, especially considering the series of posts to you at this juncture, but here it goes: your mother and I had our first jaw-dropping moment in this entire experience called pregnancy. 
We sat there in a doctor's office going through the usual Q&A to close out a typical visit, to which we then heard the following statement, "...with that said, we're looking at next weekend." 
My reaction was exactly as described in my opener - jaw dropped, eyes wide open, thought process halted, with a part of me wondering where the time had gone, and another hoping there was a moment to follow where the doctor said, "just kidding." 
But she was dead serious. Your arrival is indeed next weekend as those guiding your mother's pregnancy have all recommend that you meet us after 39 weeks, instead of the usual 40.
