Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/17/16

3 Up

1. Virginia Teen Lifts Truck - We hear it all the time, "you never know what you are capable of until you have to do it." Well, a Virginia teen confirmed this when she lifted a burning truck to rescue her father. Amazing, and Thank God for the safety of her father. 

2. "Dear Ted Cruz" - After that clown Ted Cruz decided to run his mouth about this wonderful City of New York, comedian Judy Gold penned a very interesting essay that not only points out Cruz's ignorance and hypocrisy when it comes to "New York Values", but that he just alienated and made an enemy in the greatest city in the world. 

3. Cam Newton - How can anyone not buy into the star that is Cam Newton. Giving away TD footballs is so cool, and becomes even cooler when they produce reactions like this

3 Down

1. Burkina Faso Terrorist Attack - Unfortunately terrorism strikes again as Al Qaeda killed 23 (18 nationalities) and injured many more at a luxury hotel in the Western African country. Unfortunately, the story won't get major publicity or the media's attention. Heart breaking and so infuriating. 

2. Ted Cruz - What a clown. Not sure if he thought he was winning over the country, but saying with such a smug face, "You're from New York, so you wont understand New York Values", may have just changed the race for Cruz. By the way, great response by Trump in which Cruz was left out to dry. What a clown. 

3. Oscar Diversity - I never really cared about Awards season. Truth be told, my opinion of it just feels like plenty of rich, white people who enjoy the ego stroke instead of celebrating the art form. I'm not surprised by the lack of Oscar diversity in the nominations. I actually don't care. But regardless, because this is still a thing, shame on them.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/19/17

3 Up
1. Lt. Sayem Basad Pacha - No one will ever know what went through Pacha's head before he bear-hugged a suicide bomber the moment the vest was detonated. I can't even wrap my mind around the thought process. Whatever it is, this man is one thing - hero. And that's in the purest form. 
2. Kianoush Rostami - The earthquake that rocked the Iran/Iraq border was devastating. Yet, here is Rostami giving up his prized possession of an Olympic gold medal to raise money for the relief effort. Much respect. 
3. WWE War Games - In a more light-hearted "Up" this week (we need that from time-to-time, no?), the WWE's Survivor Series weekend was just fantastic. But man, so much props to everyone who put work into Saturday's NXT show, as well as the return of War Games. That match was so awesome.

1. Rob Moore - All I will say is this - it's bad when even something such as sexual assault is now becoming a topic and a driving force for identity politics. Re…

2012 Bucket List - #15 Complete a Jigsaw Puzzle

When was the last time you completed a puzzle? Seriously, when was the last time you completed a jigsaw puzzle? Yes, a jigsaw puzzle! If, ever? 
These days, the art of the puzzle seems so far fetched and almost so two-decades ago that the thought of completing one is about as current as recording your favorite songs off the radio using a tape cassette. 
However, as a bucket list tasks for 2012, yours truly wanted to do exactly that. After all, it is a task that takes me back to a childhood of doing puzzles with my mom, and of course, can enhance and sharpen some of the mental attributes that may be diminishing in the technological, focus-challenged, attention deficient society we all live in.

The Pondering 10 - Dream Pro Wrestling Matches

Just like any sport, movie, or form of entertainment, pro wrestling has produced many memorable characters, moments, and eras that fans hold dearly. The memories, debates and discussions that have formed over the years have caused all of us to at one time fantasize about our dream scenarios. We all have them. And yes, we all have our dream matches, even if they will not ever happen. The following Pondering 10 list takes a look at my top pro wrestling dream matches, with of course, all of the participants being in their prime.
