The IF Factor: Questions Answered #171-180

171. If you could go back in time, as yourself, to live for one year at any point in history, what year would you choose, and where would you go?

I would love to go back to Junior High School as I had a lot of fun and had many memories there. However, for the sake of redemption and a clear do-over, I will select my senior year of college. I would love to have that year over, and possibly handle a few things differently. And heck, maybe even blog throughout it. 

172. If you were to receive a letter today from anyone you have known during your lifetime, who would it be from and what would it say?

From my brother. It would say, "sorry (to me and my family), I was a total idiot".

173. If you could have received a telegram from one famous person now alive, who would it be from, and what would it say?

Mariano Rivera. It would say, "Dear friend and my biggest fan, please come down to Panama with me, and I will show you how to throw the cutter."

174. If you were to be successful in another profession, what would you want to do?

Ohh, probably something in the communications field. But I love athletics, events, and recreation. No change planned in the future. 

175. If you had to spend all of your vacations for the rest of your life in the same place, where would you go?

Tough one. Probably, St. Lucia. 

176. If you won a lottery, what is the first thing you would do?

I would buy my parents a house. 

177. If you could be a member of any club or association in the world, what would it be?

I've always been a loner. I'm not sure there is a club or association I'm dying to be a part of. Maybe, I'd help volunteer for the Boys and Girls Club of America. 

178. If you were given $5,000 to spend in one store in the world, where would you do your shopping?

Best Buy. Hello 80" television. 

179. If you were to perform in the circus, what would you do?

Coordinate each event. I'm definitely not circus talent material. 

180. If you could master one type of cuisine, which one would you choose?

I would say Mexican, because it's my favorite, but I'd go with Italian because it sounds impressive.

Defending the NFL - I Just Don't Get It

Yes, I don't watch football. Well, not anymore. 
I've been completey sober for two years, not counting that one hiccup in watching the Super Bowl in February. 
So yeah, I'm not into football. I'm not particularly fond of the sport's connection to CTE issues, it's blatant obstruction or disregard for science expressing it's connection to football, nor its handling of various matters over the years. And that's even before Colin Kaepernick decided to shake the core of our nation's reality my simply dropping to a knee. 
I actually don't even care for the sport, really. The NFL is rather gross in all that it is, and has been for a long time. And for those touting college football and it's culture - excuse me. I was born, raised, and currently live in the North East. I have friends and colleagues in the South and across the country who revel in those sagas that exist only for and around Saturdays in the Fall. But, not even college football intere…

Pro Wrestling's Interesting Place in 2017

For me, pro wrestling is an interesting place. And it got here in 2017. 
For the pro wrestling fan, there are plenty of current options. We're not talking the kind of options that was once out there on a national level (ala WCW and ECW), but the kind we now have in various indie operations, the many regions that are currently on fire (UK Scene), and yes, those that you can simply log onto YouTube, or some other streaming service to find content of.
The pro wrestling fan doesn't have to have cable anymore. Actually, there isn't much of a need for cable as is. And quite frankly, the pro wrestling fan probably doesn't even need national wrestling companies as well.
Just like the pro wrestling fan, I too find myself in this peculiar area on the spectrum seeking and exploring various organizations, offerings, and presentations of the art form that is available. Much like I did in the past, I'm open to seeing what's out there, and more importantly, what is entertain…

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 12/10/17

3 Up
1. Brian Cashman - Yes, I was one of those crazies that followed the breaking story of Stanton to the Yankees on Friday night into Saturday morning - until 4:00am to be exact. I still can't believe it's real. More so, can we give credit to Brian Cashman, who continues to prove doubters wrong in his wheeling and dealing? The rebuilding was one year, and well, that included being one win from the World Series. Just Crazy. 
2. Get Out - I finally got around to watching the Jordan Peele film, and it's absolutely amazing. So thought provoking in so many ways. A great film, and ironically, one that has me thinking about visiting the in-laws in a week or so. Just kidding...sort of. 
3. Supergirl - This girl is 16 and already can squat way more than I could. Such a crazy story, but an inspirational one. Definitely give it a read. 
3 Down
1. Roy Moore - "I think it was great at the time when families were united — even though we had slavery..." SMH. Yet, we still hear…
