Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/8/14

3 Up 

1. Saved by the Bell Reunion on Jimmy Fallon - I was never a big fan of Saved by the Bell. In fact, the show bothers me a bit. However, the reunion and skit Jimmy Fallon executed on his show was funny, entertaining, and very well done. Kudos to all involved. 

2. Grammy Awards - Most years, the Grammys, at least to me, are bothersome. However, this year's edition provided many performances from a good mix and array of artists. A very entertaining show which cut out the attempt at comedy fluff, and gave music fans what we love, music. Also, congrats to Sam Smith who cleaned up as expected. 

3. Jalen Reynolds Dunk - This dunk was pretty sweet. I really feel sorry for the poor guy attempting to defend this and had no idea what was going on. 

3 Down

1. ISIS - These sure do know how to remain evil. The terrorist group now has issues with Jordan, among the long list of countries, and are now resorting to other forms of torture and execution for prisoners. 

2. Warren Sapp - I've never been a fan of Sapp. Great football player, but as a person the guys is a class A jerk. Over Super Bowl weekend, Sapp was arrested for soliciting prostitution and terminated from his duties for the NFL Network. 

3. North Korea - Not only did they issue a threat towards the United States of "final doom", but have recently fired test missiles. Evil continues on...

1 What the Heck?

1. High School Final Score - How a final score of a High School game can end 2-0, and the only basket was sore in the first fifteen seconds is beyond me. Who watched this game? Who played? Who coached? What the heck? Who officiated this game?

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…

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/21/18

3 Up
1. Women's March - I'm happy to see this movement wasn't just a reactionary thing to last year's happenings, but one that continues to move forward. It's a continue reminder that the fight for equality for us all is still ongoing. 
2. Aly Raisman - Raisman stood up land et the world know what was done to her and how corrupt USA gymnastics currently is. She really left it all out there, and it was quite eyebrow raising. It was also just as sickening to hear what has been going on, and what has been covered up. 
3. Tom Brady and the Patriots - Give the man his due. Brady is 40 years old and still winning. I don't care for the Super Bowl all that much anymore, but I recognize and respect the greatness. It's a once-in-a-generation deal, and I appreciate it. 
3 Down
1. Government Shutdown - Ugh. Come on...I don't care whose fault it is, this is a disaster. 
2. Deportation of Jorge Garcia - Look, I'm going to say something I'm sure will divide tho…

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.

2014 Bucket List #31 - Attend a TNA Wrestling Taping

I've been hoping (really hoping!) for the longest time that TNA would bring a batch of TNA tapings to this wonderful city. Every time they decided to take an Impact broadcast on the road, or hype the announcement of the location of a future pay-per-view, I genuinely think in my head - OK, this is it, they're coming babaaay! NYC!
Ummmmm, yeah. Not so much. And I'm left disappointed whenever the announcement is made. Sometimes it's a city that I just tip my hat and say, "Alright, enjoy the show chicago!" Or I just end up shaking my head in annoyance while I'm raging inside with comments like - Miami?!!! Seriously! That's where you're going? Over us?!
