Sunday Sundown Rundown - 8/17/14

3 Up

1. Mo'Ne Davis & Pierce Jones - These two little leaguers have been tremendously awesome this week. From Davis, who not only is first black female to pitch in the Little League World Series, but threw a 6 inning, 8 K shutout,  to Pierce Jones who produced the impressive stat of 4-4, 3HR, 1 Triple, 14 Total Bases, and only saw 9 pitches in all four at bats. Both have become household names at only 13. Rock on! 

2 .Protesters - Kudos to those who have traveled to Ferguson, Missouri and have done so by protesting peacefully. So many sit at home and complain, but many decided to take action, and did so in a productive way. 

3. ALS Awareness - The social media craze has been what you expect from social media fads - some people just doing it to be seen. But if you can get around that, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has done wonders for raising money and awareness for ALS. Kudos to those who participated and donated.

1. Ferguson Rioters - Let's just be VERY honest - You guys are morons. Go ahead, destroy your community. Yup, that's going to make changes. Idiots. 

2. SWAT Team Decision - I discussed this early in my thoughts on the Ferguson/Mike Brown Situation - Who thouht bringing in the SWAT team would bring a sense of peace. SWAT teams are synonymous with last resort and violence. Answering violence with violence was just a bad idea. Terrible idea. 

3. Robin William's Death - I'll be honest, it's hard for me to truly feel for those who take their own life. However, Williams seemed to have touched tons of people through his life, his charity, and his work. He'll definitely be missed.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/19/17

1. Lt. Sayem Basad Pacha - No one will ever know what went through Pacha's head before he bear-hugged a suicide bomber the moment the vest was detonated. I can't even wrap my mind around the thought process. Whatever it is, this man is one thing - hero. And that's in the purest form. 
2. Kianoush Rostami - The earthquake that rocked the Iran/Iraq border was devastating. Yet, here is Rostami giving up his prized possession of an Olympic gold medal to raise money for the relief effort. Much respect. 
3. WWE War Games - In a more light-hearted "Up" this week (we need that from time-to-time, no?), the WWE's Survivor Series weekend was just fantastic. But man, so much props to everyone who put work into Saturday's NXT show, as well as the return of War Games. That match was so awesome.

1. Rob Moore - All I will say is this - it's bad when even something such as sexual assault is now becoming a topic and a driving force for identity politics. Re…

Just like any sport, movie, or form of entertainment, pro wrestling has produced many memorable characters, moments, and eras that fans hold dearly.

The following Pondering 10 list takes a look at my top pro wrestling dream matches, with of course, all of the participants being in their prime.
