Page of Fame


The mission of the Dome Pondering Page of Fame is to recognize the individuals, moments, stories, issues, or topics that have been discussed, written about, or have helped to the overall contribution of this blog. With over ten years of posts from this blog, why the heck not honor those stories that continue to pop up on the main page?! Those topics which continue to offer writing material for this avid blogger are indeed special and from now will be honored for such. 

And oh yeah...we'll have some fun with this as well.


Class of 2013

Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

I wouldn't have it any other way than to have the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as the first DP Page of Famer. As you know, Dr. King is held in the highest regards by your truly, and is one of the rare people I find to be fascinating in his beliefs, thoughts, morals, and overall being.

Friday Night Lights 

The second inductee onto the DP Page of Fame, Friday Night Lights - book, movie, and film - was a sure lock if you have been following this little blog for a while. DP devotees are well aware of this fact - I'm pretty obsessed with the series. And just so you know, I'm alright with that semi-embarrassing fact. Read More...













Class of 2014

MVP Baseball 2005

The third inductee to the Dome Pondering Page of Fame, MVP Baseball has quite the peculiar significance and prestige to this blog, and well, to yours truly. To be quite frank, I've probably wasted an obscene amount of time playing this game in my lifetime. Read More...












Alex Rodriguez

If you're a long time DP devotee, you knew this time was coming. You just knew someday - one day - the man, Alex Rodriguez, will be inducted onto the Page of Fame. I've been saying it for years and I'll repeat it one more time, "Alex Rodriguez is the most fascinating athlete in my lifetime". Read More...













Class of 2015

James L. Dolan

Oh, folks, this is going to be a good one. Long time DP devotees know my longtime annoyance and heartache with my beloved New York Knicks. Yup, love hurts, right? Well, much of that hurt began when James L. Dolan took over the operations of Madison Square Garden from his father, including the Knicks, and it's been a struggle ever since. Read More...











Randy "Macho Man" Savage

Growing up there were two guys who immediately attracted my eyeballs when it came to pro wrestling, Bret "The Hitman" Hart and Randy "Macho Man" Savage. Savage was my first guy dating back to my first years as a pro wrestling fan. The guy had it all, the crazy look, the flashy outfits, the incredible promos that hooked you, and of course, the athleticism inside of the ring. Read More...












Class of 2016


"Black Boy" by Richard Wright

I never quite understood the urge my mother had for me to read this book during my teenage years. "I want you to read this book! You WILL read this book!." My mom was never pushy when it came to things like this, so I knew she was serious, and I knew she had a reason. Read More...












The "Flip Play"

I laid there, nervous, hoping the Yankees could somehow hold on and squeak out a win over the Oakland Athletics to keep the season alive. Then it happened. Terrence Long ripped a liner down the right field line. Shane Spencer, in all of his instant-glory, over threw both Alfonso Soriano and Tino Martinez. Here came Jeremy Giambi, carrying the weight of being Jason's brother in a rage in which he moved around the bases. Then suddenly, like a Super Hero, Derek Jeter comes out of no where, probably with his cape flailing from around his neck, picks up the errant throw, shovels it to a waiting Jorge Posada, tagging Giambi for the out.

Ken Griffey Jr's Swing

Let's be honest, Ken Griffey Jr. was the man. He was THAT guy for baseball. And in my opinion, a guy in which they have not been able to replace since he abdicated the throne. I was  huge fan of Griffey, but his swing is what REALLY made him special. Read More...












Jimmy Cliff

As a kid, I remember hearing the tunes of Jimmy Cliff in my household and anytime I was in my father's car. My dad has always been a big fan, and instantly educated me on the musical taste that was Jimmy Cliff, especially in a country where Bob Marley received all of the accolades and adulation.
