Sunday Sundown Rundown - 12/20/15

3 Up

1. Zaevion Dobson - The High School football star in Tennessee was killed as he shielded three other girls from the gunfire of gang members. And while it's a shame that he died, and we have every reason to be outraged by the constant violence, I'll focus on remembering and honoring Dobson as a hero. 

2. Cam Newton - Besides being really good at football these days, how can you not like Cam Newton? The guy plays the game with a certain enjoyment, and you have to love him giving away footballs to kids after every score! Plus, his performance this week against the Giants was outstanding.

3. Diving Between Continents - This story is amazing, even more so are the absolutely stunning visuals of a diver who has been diving in an an area in Iceland that allows him to touch both North America and Europe. Check it out!

1. Virginia School District - I cannot believe how far we are going with the phobia on Islam as an entire school district was shut down after students received a "controversial" assignment including the Muslim oath. Yes, I understand the caution, especially the way our society gets crazy when it comes to religion and schools, but this is a bit far. Shutting school down? C'mon...

2. Democratic Debate - I have yet to watch it as it still sits on the DVR, but I have to ask, why in the world are the Dems continuing to place their debates on odd channels and on Saturday nights? Seems rather odd. Put it on primetime on a Wednesday night! The nation doesn't seem to have as much interest in the DemDebates as the GOP debates, and the off-placement certainly adds to the reasoning. 

3. Miss Universe Pageant - Sure, Steve Harvey screwed up the ending. However, why do we care so much about these things? Why are these pageants THIS important to people? Call me crazy, but these things set women back years. Just my opinion, just bloggin...

1. Tammie Jo Shults - Kudos to the captain of the Southwest aircraft that blew an engine. Shults was able to land the plane safely with busted engine, thus minimizing the fatality of the fiasco to just the one person who unfortunately was sucked out of a window. So crazy. All of it, so incredible. 
1a. Southwest In-Flight Crew - More kudos to TJS's staff who not only pulled a woman being sucked out of a plane back into the aircraft, but managed to keep everyone onboard safe and poised during the emergency. 
2. James Shaw Jr. - There were even more heroes this week as James Shaw Jr. wrestled a rifle away from a madman who rushed a Waffle House in Tennessee and opened up fire. Took lots of guts, but Shaw saved countless lives. 
3. LeBron James - I don't understand how any sports fan can say anything about LeBron James. The dude once again is carrying a rather dubious contending roster on his back during these playoffs.

1. Waffle House - More mass shootings...Ugh. I r…

The Pondering 10 - Favorite MLB Uniforms

Unlike most sports, baseball uniforms carry a lot of tradition and history. It's rare that you see baseball teams deviate away from the history of a club, and if they do, it's usually an ownership change. For the most part, in baseball, the uniforms are sacred. Because of that, Major League Baseball has many teams with uniforms that are very, very significant, and also, very stylish. As we did for the NFL (Pondering 10 - Favorite NFL Uniforms), the following Pondering 10 will take a look at my favorite MLB uniforms.

2013 Bucket List - #29 Attend Wrestlemania

It only took me twenty eight years and twenty-nine events, but I finally (finally!!) made it to Wrestlemania. I've attended so many wrestling events in my lifetime, from small local shows to pay-per-view events, from small local promotions, to the global companies, but never had I gone to the big one - Wrestlemania. 
Upon hearing the huge event was returning to the metropolitan area at Met Life stadium, I knew I had to attend. As soon as tickets went on pre-sale, I purchased them...way back in November. I knew, if not now, then when? If not this year, then probably never. Some might not understand the importance of it, but to crazy wrestling addicts like myself, this is the show. And while it wasn't on the 2013 Bucket List, this was on my absolute lifetime list, and this past Sunday, I placed a big fat check mark next to it. The following is a little review of my Wrestlemania 29 experience, live!

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.
