Sunday Sundown Rundown - 12/14/14

3 Up

1. Anwar Sanders - A black police officer in New Mexico, Sanders who wrote a very interesting article about the two words he lives due to his occupation. Sanders penned piece also discusses the need for the black community to go beyond protesting for real action for change. A risky piece for him, but also a very, very, thought provoking one. 

2. Baby Double Take Video - Here is a video recommended to me by the tag team partner. It's a rather funny one that will ultimately make you smile. 

3. New Girl - You all know I do not watch much television (besides sports, and sports related content), but was recently sucked into this show with Zooey Deshanel and crew by my wife. Oddly, the show is hysterically funny and an easy watch. It's no Goldbergs, but still a good watch.

1. Sidney Hostage Situation - A late add to the "down", but nonetheless, a super important one as hostages were seen holding a flag with Arabic writing on it which possibly indicated "jihadist" intentions. The story is still developing as of the publishing of this post.

2. Lennon Lacy - For some reason, this story has slipped through the cracks among the situations of Mike Brown and Eric Garner. However, the shocking and awful death of Lennon Lacy in North Carolina has now become national news, and hopefully, the killers are found. 

3. Caitlyn Ricci - The New Jersey teen who not only sued her parents for college tuition, but won, is now the walking and talking poster child for the entitlement generation. Shame on the New Jersey judicial system for imposing such a ridiculous judgement and for setting a nasty precedent for future spoiled brats. 

1 Heartbreak

1. Demario Bailey - While there are so many focused on bringing attention towards making "blacks lives matter", please read the story of Demario Bailey's death recently in Chicago. When will this stop?

1. Aly Raisman - Following the bravery of Mckayla Maroney and others in the #MeToo campaign, Raisman has stepped forward as the charges pile up for sexual abuse by former USA Gymnastics doctor, Larry Nassar. By the way, shame on USA Gymnastics for continuing to allow this culture. I shudder to think what else lies in the world of Gymnastics. 
2. New York Times - In a world where journalism - real journalism - is becoming harder and harder to find, The Times continues to break stories left and right, and did so again this week with the Louis CK piece. I think we all are tired of journalism wrapped in identity politics, and yes, even "fake news". 
3. Kristaps Porzingis - Obviously, you all know how much I love the Unicorn. But seriously, how enjoyable is he to watch? And barring injury, he can only get better. Melo, who?

1. Sean Hannity - Seriously, I don't even know how this guy sleeps at night. And really, I'm not even sure what kind of person follows thi…

Pondering Picture #82

I snapped this photo in midtown Manhattan following a meeting with believe it or not, various professors from my alma mater of Cazenovia College. It was tremendous catching up with them all, especially considering it's been ten-plus years since I've seen them. 
Sometimes, honestly, it's almost like I forget I spent four years in upstate New York. And when I am reminded of it, often I am amazed in how a such a small town helped prepare me to tackle the big city, New York City - my home. 
Life is crazy.

The Pondering 10 - All-Time Favorite Championship Belts

With the WWE finally moving on from the ridiculousness that was the appearance of the WWE championship (Really, they kept a spinning title for eight years), and of course the unveiling the look of the title, it got the wheels turning on the best looks for championship belts. From pro wrestling, boxing (although, don't expect to see any on this list as they are usually ugly), and mixed martial arts, there are plenty of different models, types, and appearances that come with them. The following Pondering 10 list is my favorite all-time championship belts.
