Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/16/15

3 Up

1. Walking Commuter - James Robertson who walked 21 miles each way on his daily commute to work to earn a living, received a car from a local dealership. Reading Robertson's story is amazing and reassures you the hard work some put into their daily lives. 

2. Zach Lavine - After years of duds, Zach Lavine brought the dunk contest alive with some athletic and spectacular dunks that left us all in awe. Lavine did it all with ease, which was even more impressive. 

3. Suits - I don't watch much television, but Suits is a personal favorite of mine. The show has tremendous acting, with even better writing. Big fan. Big, big fan. Recently got around to the latest season and already anxious for more. 

3 Down

1. Jackie Robinson West Situation - I touched on this earlier this week, but this whole situation regarding the Jackie Robinson West Little League team just flat out stinks. Such a shame to see the efforts of these kids, at no fault of their own, completely tarnished. 

2. Brian Williams - In an age where respecting the news and how we receive it becomes less and less credible, it is released that Williams fabricated and embellished stories in the past during his broadcasts. 

3. Kenny Smith Commentary - I actually like Kenny Smith's analysis when he is in studio, as he is a part of my favorite studio panel in sports, Inside the NBA. However, Smith has a knack for trying to over do it whenever in a public setting. His commentary, which was also aired in-house, was absolutely atrocious. It really was. At one point, he challenged Chris Berman for worst All-Star Game personality. He was trying too hard, and it very much hurt a lot of the broadcast.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/12/17

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.

WWE Battleground 2014: Usos vs. The Wyatts, and Well, Just Get Ready For SummerSlam!

I really didn't have much interest in WWE Battleground last night. It just felt like another WWE PPV with another new name that really didn't have much meaning other than stamping another event with a pointless description until SummerSlam. And to be honest, the recent string of WWE TV hasn't been the most entertaining in my eyes. Maybe it's just me, but I haven't been excited. Just meh. WWE just seems to be spinning their wheels a midst the doldrums of complacency and pitching the WWE Network every chance they have. 
Nonetheless, WWE Battleground wasn't all that terrible in my eyes. Here are some quick thoughts from last night's event:
