Sunday Sundown Rundown - 3/9/15

3 Up

1. Russell Westbrook - After Kevin Durant went down again to an injury, Russell Westbrook not only responded to the challenge of carrying the Thunder, but he notched four straight triple-doubles, and had yet another one tonight. The guy has been insane as of late. 

2. MLS Opening Weekend - I was crazy enough to watch all three Sunday games today, and I really haven't regretted it. The MLS opening weekend has been amazing and should be another season of growth for the budding league. 

3. Cute Four Year Old - This video was so cute, and her response to a four year old boy calling her ugly was a nice touch. Sure, kids are mean and that little boy will probably never remember saying what he did, but the little girl's poise in that response was nice. Kudos to her parents as well - the true foundation of the response. 

3 Down

1. Curt Schilling Daughter's Social Media Attackers - Those who decided to go after Curt Schilling's daughter on social media this week with all sorts of disgusting remarks are low-lives. True scumbags. As great as social media can be, there is such an ugly side of individuals who now hide behind screens making the world a terrible place. 

2. MH370 Anniversary - It's hard to imagine it has been one year since flight MH370 disappeared. One year later, we still have no idea where the plane or bodies of those on that flight are. Scary, disturbing, puzzling, and sad altogether. 

3. University of Oklahoma - I came across the video of the Sigma Alpha Episolon chapter at the University of Oklahoma chanting "There will never be a n----r in SAE" on a bus. Sure it's racist - of course, absolutely. However, the chant seemed all to casual and common. That's the part that should bother many.

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.

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.
