Sunday Sundown Rundown - 3/15/15

3 Up 

1. Coach Steve Lavin - On the brink of the NCAA Tournament, Coach Lavin suspended one of his key players, Chris Obekpa, for two weeks after violating team rules. Not many would do such a thing, and you have to love the transparency and discipline Lavin is using here, regardless of the timing. Ethics - it's a beautiful thing in college sports when used. 

2. Impact Wrestling - Pro Wrestling getting the nod here at number two this week as Impact Wrestling delivered quite the show this past Friday on Destination America. A show that was truly entertaining and warranted comparisons to pay-per-view television. 

3. Leigh Castergine - Castergine, who works for the New York Mets,  wrote a very insightful piece on CNN.com about the need for more women in the sports industry. As someone in that field, I can concur, and even support her claims that the inclusion of women and minorities are severely needed. 

3 Down

1. 70 Year old Nun Gang Raped - Do I even need to say more? What is wrong with our world? 

2. Feguson Cops Shot - Just when you thought the stories out of Ferguson, Missouri were over, we get the shooting of two police officers during protests. When will this end? 

3. McDonalds Teen Girls Fight - I'm not even sure what to say. To some, this may be a shock, but this kind of stuff has been happening for years, but recently, it's become a bit more violent and prevalent. There are a lot of factors here, all which come down to parenting and productive homes as the issue. Just my opinion.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/19/17

3 Up
1. Lt. Sayem Basad Pacha - No one will ever know what went through Pacha's head before he bear-hugged a suicide bomber the moment the vest was detonated. I can't even wrap my mind around the thought process. Whatever it is, this man is one thing - hero. And that's in the purest form. 
2. Kianoush Rostami - The earthquake that rocked the Iran/Iraq border was devastating. Yet, here is Rostami giving up his prized possession of an Olympic gold medal to raise money for the relief effort. Much respect. 
3. WWE War Games - In a more light-hearted "Up" this week (we need that from time-to-time, no?), the WWE's Survivor Series weekend was just fantastic. But man, so much props to everyone who put work into Saturday's NXT show, as well as the return of War Games. That match was so awesome.

1. Rob Moore - All I will say is this - it's bad when even something such as sexual assault is now becoming a topic and a driving force for identity politics. Re…
