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.

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…

Pondering Picture #83

"Shitholes." 
Look, I've tried to be fair with the President. Some countries and their current conditions are exactly that - shitholes. Very poor conditions. He's nothing but honest and blunt in his assessment. 
However, his comment is just another in a continued (rather excessive) pattern of actions that alienates and divides, and continues to marginalize people of color. After a while, you learn it's not about immigration reform for this administration, but rather, the "kind" of immigrant here that will making this country "Great Again."







Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/14/18

3 Up
1. Minnesota Vikings Win - It was the most football I've watched since last year's Super Bowl, and I'm actually glad I did. I watched the remaining 1:57 from a dinner establishment, and it was rather riveting. Such a cool moment for Stefan Diggs. In so many ways that entire scenario was rather unreal. Almost movie-like. 
2. Don Lemon - Whoa! I think it's safe to say Lemon is not a fan of the President, and really, in some ways, become a voice for people of color under this current administration. His words on Thursday night were fierce, true, and authentic on how many POCs felt after the President's comments. It's a sudden change from Lemon's reputation following the Ferguson riots. 
3. Mark Wahlberg - Sure, it took some public pressure. And sure, it may even look like a PR stunt. But still, Wahlberg did the right thing after news broke he earned $1.5 million and Michelle Williams earned $1,000. A donation in her name of the entire $1.5 million was the…

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.
