Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/21/15

3 Up

1. Max Scherzer - We'll let the Jose Tabata hit-by-pitch slide, although, yes, I believe he could have gotten out of the way. Regardless, Mad Max was super filthy and is probably the best pitcher in the world right now. A one-hitter and a no-hitter on back-to-back starts? Yup, you've earned this top spot.

2. Jay Lethal - Congrats to Lethal, a true grinder and fan of the pro wrestling business who captured his first World Title this week. Lethal is a throwback to the wrestler who truly paid his dues and earned his way to the top in a gradual and organic way. Kudos!

3. Soca River - This Slovenian River is actually really beautiful. Sometimes an uncovering like this is just needed to reinvest us in life.

3 Down

1. Charleston, SC Shooting - So sad. Oh, so sad. I'm not even sure what else to say in regards to this.

2. Racism in Dominican Republic - The issues between Haiti and the Dominican Republic are well known. However, lately, the rampant racism and beating of Haitians in the DR is just another form of racism being brought to the forefront in today's world. Some are linking it to "deportations" and some have gone to the other extreme to call it "racial cleansing", but the truth is somewhere in the middle and it's still wrong.

3. Donald Trump - Wow, dude. That speec...err, rant...err whatever, was so bad it was entertaining. Sadly, Trump has no clue, and probably won't appeal to anyone other than the 1 percent in America.

1 Weird

1. Rachel Dolezal - She needs help. I'm sorry, does anyone want to just be themselves, anymore?

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.

WWE Battleground 2014: Usos vs. The Wyatts, and Well, Just Get Ready For SummerSlam!

I really didn't have much interest in WWE Battleground last night. It just felt like another WWE PPV with another new name that really didn't have much meaning other than stamping another event with a pointless description until SummerSlam. And to be honest, the recent string of WWE TV hasn't been the most entertaining in my eyes. Maybe it's just me, but I haven't been excited. Just meh. WWE just seems to be spinning their wheels a midst the doldrums of complacency and pitching the WWE Network every chance they have. 
Nonetheless, WWE Battleground wasn't all that terrible in my eyes. Here are some quick thoughts from last night's event:
