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.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/22/18

3 Up
1. Tammie Jo Shults - Kudos to the captain of the Southwest aircraft that blew an engine. Shults was able to land the plane safely with busted engine, thus minimizing the fatality of the fiasco to just the one person who unfortunately was sucked out of a window. So crazy. All of it, so incredible. 
1a. Southwest In-Flight Crew - More kudos to TJS's staff who not only pulled a woman being sucked out of a plane back into the aircraft, but managed to keep everyone onboard safe and poised during the emergency. 
2. James Shaw Jr. - There were even more heroes this week as James Shaw Jr. wrestled a rifle away from a madman who rushed a Waffle House in Tennessee and opened up fire. Took lots of guts, but Shaw saved countless lives. 
3. LeBron James - I don't understand how any sports fan can say anything about LeBron James. The dude once again is carrying a rather dubious contending roster on his back during these playoffs.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/15/18

3 Up
1. Bartolo Colon - Mannnnnnnn, this dude at 44 years old and at who knows how many pounds overweight, almost threw a perfect game against the defending World Series Champions on National television. Bartolo, don't you ever change. 
2. Beyonce - I probably could just leave this "UP" as just "Beyonce", and really, most wouldn't even bat an eye at it. Regardless, she earned it this week, slaying as always. Beyonce killed it at Coachella with some awesome performances, reuniting with Destiny's Child, and of course, making history as the first black woman to headline the festival. 
3. New York Mets - Even this Yankees fan has to give it up to the Mets and their hot start. They are playing some fun baseball, and well, it's backed by those big arms they need to rely on. Kudos to the Amazin's!

1. Philadelphia Starbucks - For those who don't understand "white privilege", here is an example of the opposite - two black men waiting…

2013 Bucket List - #29 Attend Wrestlemania

It only took me twenty eight years and twenty-nine events, but I finally (finally!!) made it to Wrestlemania. I've attended so many wrestling events in my lifetime, from small local shows to pay-per-view events, from small local promotions, to the global companies, but never had I gone to the big one - Wrestlemania. 
Upon hearing the huge event was returning to the metropolitan area at Met Life stadium, I knew I had to attend. As soon as tickets went on pre-sale, I purchased them...way back in November. I knew, if not now, then when? If not this year, then probably never. Some might not understand the importance of it, but to crazy wrestling addicts like myself, this is the show. And while it wasn't on the 2013 Bucket List, this was on my absolute lifetime list, and this past Sunday, I placed a big fat check mark next to it. The following is a little review of my Wrestlemania 29 experience, live!

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.
