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.

One More Year of Possible Frustration. A Future of Guaranteed Idiocy.

One Year.

After all the drama, after all of the controversy, it now comes down to one year for Isiah Thomas to turn around the mess that he created. Isiah has one year to improve the group of misfits that he has put together for an NBA roster.

One Year.

Good luck Isiah.

The fact of the matter is that the Knicks are a mess. They have become arguably the most embarassing franchise in sports. A collection of high-priced players with no resumes of winning else where combined with a lack of leadership on the coaching, front office and ownership level is a combustible formula for any sports organization. It's sad. It's sad to see an organization that is used to winning and has a history of greatness and class reduced to nothing. Guys such as Patrick Ewing, Clyde Frazier and Willis Reed all who have worn that illustrious blue and Orange "New York" across their chests with pride and dignity are now an afterthought. Madison Square Garden - the mecca of basketball, and most hi…

Pondering Picture #83

"Shitholes." 
Look, I've tried to be fair with the President. Some countries and their current conditions are exactly that - shitholes. Very poor conditions. He's nothing but honest and blunt in his assessment. 
However, his comment is just another in a continued (rather excessive) pattern of actions that alienates and divides, and continues to marginalize people of color. After a while, you learn it's not about immigration reform for this administration, but rather, the "kind" of immigrant here that will making this country "Great Again."







Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/14/18

3 Up
1. Minnesota Vikings Win - It was the most football I've watched since last year's Super Bowl, and I'm actually glad I did. I watched the remaining 1:57 from a dinner establishment, and it was rather riveting. Such a cool moment for Stefan Diggs. In so many ways that entire scenario was rather unreal. Almost movie-like. 
2. Don Lemon - Whoa! I think it's safe to say Lemon is not a fan of the President, and really, in some ways, become a voice for people of color under this current administration. His words on Thursday night were fierce, true, and authentic on how many POCs felt after the President's comments. It's a sudden change from Lemon's reputation following the Ferguson riots. 
3. Mark Wahlberg - Sure, it took some public pressure. And sure, it may even look like a PR stunt. But still, Wahlberg did the right thing after news broke he earned $1.5 million and Michelle Williams earned $1,000. A donation in her name of the entire $1.5 million was the…

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.
