The IF Factor: Questions Answered #251-260

251. If you were to invent an award to give to one commercial company, which one would you award, and for what? 

As of this moment, I would give an "Employee Empowerment" award to Google. No not because they host this very blog, but because of how they treat and take care of their employees. I've had the opportunity in my career to work with those who are employed by Google and all of the rumors and hearsay is true - they do have fun and are super productive! Kudos to Google on finding the balance of employee happiness, innovation, and productivity.

252. If you could resolve any single dispute, anywhere in the world, what would you solve?

I would solve race relations here in America. Since the slave trade, our country has been struggling to see one another beyond the color of our skin and the different ways we look.

 253. If you could be a contestant on any game show, which would you like to be on?

Easy. Jeopardy. DP devotees would know, I've been a huge Jeopardy fan since I was eight. Yeah, I know, it's the nerd in me. 
254. If you could read the mind of anyone you know, who would it be?

My wife. It would make things a lot easier. I'm sure all married men echo my answer as well. 
255. If you could read the mind of someone famous, who would it be?

Lady Gaga. Amanda Bynes. Dennis Rodman. Kanye West. Pick any one of the four. I would just love to know what runs through their minds before they do the things that, you know, that only they do.
256. If you could dance any one dance perfectly, which dance would you choose?

Could someone teach me to Dougie? Just kidding. Break dancing. Just because its cool. Plus, you either seem like the "cool" guy at the party, or simply just the random guy break dancing to slow music. Either way, it's a win. 
257. If you could be the editor of any single magazine, what publication would you pick?

Men's Health Magazine. 
258. If you were elected leader of the United States tomorrow, what would be your first act?

Reform Education. Isn't it funny how this topic is always on the lips of every politician come election season, yet you never hear it in the years between. 
259. If you could eliminate one thing you do each day in the bathroom so that you never had to do it again, what would it be?

Clean the bathtub/shower is my immediate answer. However, because I don't do that everyday, I'll have to find something else. And if you do, then you're just sick.

I would go with flossing. It's annoying to stand there and go through every tooth, but it has to get done. Would be nice to simply have my teeth magically flossed before bed. 
260. If you could only hear one voice that you are familiar with for the rest of your life from the mouth of all people, whose would it be? 

 Either Bob Sheppard or Bruce Buffer. DP devotees knew the second was coming. I'll go with Sheppard, for the sole reason that Buffer's constant energy would tire me out.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 3/11/18

3 Up
1. Basketball Student-Athletes - I'm not talking the programs, or the fans that support these programs. I'm giving the "Up" to those student-athletes who sacrifice and give their all for an experience they are about to embark on. Good luck to all of those who competed up onto this point, and those moving on in the NCAA Tournament. 
2. Unsolved - This weekend, the wife and I started this latest series on the USA Network about the Murders of Biggie Smalls and Tupac. So far, it has been especially good. Well done, well detailed, and very dramatic. Giving a personal recommendation on this one. 
3. MLS Soccer Sundays - Good to have Soccer Sundays back. And the first weekend, the MLS provided some very entertaining games, including Atlanta FC setting a new record for single-game attendance at over 72,000. Who said soccer isn't big in this country? 
3 Down
1. White House School Safety Plan - I CAN NOT believe our leaders believe gun training for teachers is a viable…

The Pondering 10 - Favorite MLB Uniforms

Unlike most sports, baseball uniforms carry a lot of tradition and history. It's rare that you see baseball teams deviate away from the history of a club, and if they do, it's usually an ownership change. For the most part, in baseball, the uniforms are sacred. Because of that, Major League Baseball has many teams with uniforms that are very, very significant, and also, very stylish. As we did for the NFL (Pondering 10 - Favorite NFL Uniforms), the following Pondering 10 will take a look at my favorite MLB uniforms.

The Pondering 10 - Favorite Things I Miss as a Kid

As I get older, the thoughts of childhood memories become fonder and fonder especially as the distance between that time and the present grows. As an adult, you watch the current generation doing certain things, and despite not exactly being in agreement with their ways, it takes you back to a certain time when you were in their position and how you enjoyed those crucial years for any individual. With summer in mid-swing, recently, I've become jealous of many youth because of what I remembered participating in as a child. Because of this, the following Pondering 10 will list my favorite things I miss as a kid:

2013 Bucket List - #26 Encourage a Guest Post - "Football: Dislike"

In a year where the DP has branched out to other sites, it's only natural that we have other contributors do so on this platform as well. As one of my goals for 2013, I wanted to have a guest blogger, and decided to go with my tag team partner (my wife for you DP newbies). See, she has an undying dislike for football, and I thought it would make for a good piece, would provide common ground for those that feel the same way, and of course, instant therapy for her problem with America's phenomenon. So without further adieu, here it is:
