Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/10/15

3 Up

1. Mother's Day - An obvious "up" for this week. Kudos to all the hard working mothers out there. However, as my mother told me, "everyday is mother's day". She's right, don't wait for one Sunday every year to honor our mamas. Do it everyday! 

2. Ernie Johnson - Kudos to the TNT sports host who gave his Emmy award to the daughters and family of Stuart Scott. EJ is a class act, and his sentiment and speech was just another representation of that. 

3. Lionel Messi - Oh. My. Word. That goal...just watch it. Just watch what he does to the best defender in the world. Messi is such a joy to watch.

3 Down

1. #PoliceLivesMatter - Such a sad week to see those who protect us fall due to ignorance and ridiculousness. From having to bury Officer Brian Moore here in New York City, to the now murders of two Mississippi officers, this all needs to stop. All of it. 

2. James Dolan - It's been a while since Dolan has given me something to ponder about, but he has done it. Dolan has once again brought back Isiah Thomas to Madison Square Garden to run the New York Liberty. Ugh. How many chances does this guy get? 

3. Tom Brady - I don't know what else can be said about #DeflateGate, however, the way Tom Brady defended himself from the findings in the Wells reports was very similar to the way some of the steroids users in baseball looked to avoid the accusations. Brady came off very guilty this week, and that doesn't speak well for his reputation and possibly, his legacy.

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.
