Sunday Sundown Rundown - 7/28/13

3 Up

1. Derek Jeter - If I said The Captain would hit a home run on his first pitch in his return, it would sound crazy. If Hollywood scripted it in a movie, it would seem too cheesy. But, that's what happened, and it was pretty awesome. 

2. Qing Chen - For being a hero and saving a toddler who somehow fell out of a window above a store and ended up on an awning. Quick thinking and poise in a scary situation.

3. Matt Harvey - The guy is unbelievable. The Mets have themselves an absolute stud going forward.

3 Down

1. Anthony Weiner - Dude, seriously? Carlos Danger? Really?! Someone really needs to take texting off of your phone plan. Quite frankly, you are now up for another run of "Idiot of the Year" and the "What Were You Thinking?" Awards of the year.

2. Royal Baby Stalkers - I have a good amount of family from the UK and currently living in the UK, so I understand the importance of the new addition to the royal family. However, for those that were obsessed with finding out the name of the child and fawning over every released picture of it, here is some free advice - get a life.

3. Alex Rodriguez - Oh, A-Rod, you sly, insecure, future DP Page of Famer. You continue to baffle me with these weird and sad bouts of awkwardness. I really don't get you anymore. Not that I ever have, but you seemingly continue to top yourself.

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.

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…
