The IF Factor: Questions Answered #491-500 (The Finale)

491. If you were to pick the best and worst wedding presents you received, what would they be?

Best wedding present was a George Foreman grill, close second were Survivor Series tickets. Yes, I mean that. The worst was a bed set that we had to return because well, it wasn't our style - or anyone's to be honest. 

492. If you had to pick the best advice that someone gave you at, or about, your own wedding, what was it, and who said it?

I don't remember who told me these words, but they simply said to be sure to eat. It's amazing how quickly the day goes by, and how you can get wrapped up in it all without doing something as important as eating. The person was correct. Didn't eat much, and barely ate during the reception. 


493. If you could go back and change one thing about your wedding night after the guests were all gone, what would you alter?

Nothing. The night was awesome. Hung out with some old friends, chatted, and relaxed after a looooooong day. 

494. If you had to go back and say one thing to a high school crush today, what would you say?

Hahaha, I would say: "hi, how are you?"

Getting that much out in High School was difficult.

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

Purchase a house. Maybe two depending on how much I won. 

496. If you were tabbed with having to give a company an award for their commercials, what award would you give, and what company would you choose?

Sonic. The two guys in those commercials are hilarious, and the content is as well. There aren't any Sonics here in the city, so I have to grab it whenever we are on the road. 

497. If you could read the mind of anyone you know, who would it be?

My wife. Would make life easier wouldn't? I'm sure every man with a wife or girlfriend understands this. 

498. If you can relive one moment in professional in basketball with you replacing the hero, what moment would you choose, and who would you replace?

While I would love to say Larry Johnson's four point play in MSG, Michael Jordan's crossover on Byron Russell to win his sixth NBA title was epic. 

499. If you could grant one sports championship for a city or region, which team would you choose?

Oh gosh, easy - Knicks. I really want to see the bedlam in this city should the Knicks win a championship and go down the Canyon of Heroes in July. 

500. If you can choose one word to describe all 500 questions in this series, what word would you pick?

Fun.

Making Sense of The Bible, Politics, and Immigration

They use the Bible.
For any Christian, or any person that believes in the Good Book and trusts in Jesus for faith, for life, for eternity, it always is a point of contention, a source of struggle, and a subject that truly tears the heart apart - using the Bible to justify action. And in this case, specifically cruel and inhumane action. 
By that statement, you already know where I stand. And if you read and follow this blog, you already know where I did. Yet, after Jeff Sessions used Romans 13:1 as a means to justify the removal of immigrant children from their parents at the Southern Border, as a Christian, as someone who believes heavily in that book and in the faith of Christ, I'm left utterly appalled, angry, upset, and disappointed. 
Shockingly enough, much like what was promised in "Making America Great Again", we are seeing this country reverse into some dark times and questionable actions that reflect those specific times. Times that may have been great for any …

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/17/18

3 Up
1. Father's Day - Always a special day of the year, kudos to all of the men who are engaged and active fathers around the world. I had several wishes of "Happy Father's Day" today, and yes, it was weird. Hoping to officially join the club with my initiation year coming up. 
2. The Incredibles 2 - Honestly, it was was one of the movies I would have picked to end my now decade long-movie-theater-free streak. Yes folks, it's been over ten years now. I should probably put up a countdown on the site. Nonetheless, kudos to I2 for raking in over $180 Million over the weekend. And yes, this sequel is so long overdue. 
3. The World Cup - It's been absolutely incredible since the start. With many upsets and poor outings from some powerhouses, the tournament is already flipped upside down. We saw an epic Ronaldo performance, and a Messi letdown continuing that epic debate. Also, it's pretty interesting to watch those who fancy themselves "BIG" sports …

Thoughts on 2018 State of the Union Address

Heading into this State of the Union address, I strongly believed this was President Trump's opportunity to somehow clear the air and change slow the growing perspective he's been claiming as "fake news". For a guy whose strength in politics has been refuting claims, attacking others, tweeting without control, and giving informal and fiery speeches in the form of rallies, having a blank canvas to unite, to control the perspective, and to give his mission is indeed foreign. 
Last night was his chance. And in my opinion, it was the "must win" in the political spectrum, especially considering the midterm election season we are upon. 
Again, im not a "must win" kind of person, but his message tonight is just that in the political spectrum. Has to deliver. Has to. — Dome Pondering (@DomePondering) January 30, 2018
Overall, I thought the President did well. I'm being fair and just. And as a former college debater and an absolute junkie for rhetoric…
