Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/21/16

3 Up 

1. Monty Williams - My goodness. How a man can lose his wife, yet still find it in his heart to forgive, to not be angry, and to use it to inspire us all on the act of forgiveness, is beyond me. But that's exactly what Monty Williams did in this memorable speech. 

2. High Schools Student's Surprise - I'll admit, kids today are often into themselves. However, this story about a group of High School students in Texas that held a surprise birthday party for their teacher is awesome. Who knew? 

3. Polar Bears Meet For the First Time - I'm a sucker for Polar Bears. Yes, I am. And this video was awesome.

1. Oregon Occupiers - WHY (!!!) are these folks still doing what they are doing. Yes, the obvious is known - if these men and women had darker skin tone, they would be dead by now. However, these morons continue to waste the time of our officials, and even have gone as far as defecating on Native American grounds and other artifact sites. Ugh. 

2. Kalamazoo Shooting Spree - Sick of mass shootings. Seriously, when will we stop?

3. Bellator 149 - Wow. From the awful Kimbo Slice vs. Dada 5000 fight, to the mess that was Shamrock vs. Gracie, this was an embarrassing event for Bellator. Absolutely dreadful. 

1 SMH

1. Kesha vs. Sony - I found it very disheartening to hear that a judge ruled that Kesha must remain under contract to SONY, and her alleged rapist boss. Sure, I understand the seriousness of a binding contract, which makes this situation even more messed up. In a perfect world, gray areas like this wouldn't exist. Then again, in a perfect world, neither would sexual assault.

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. Bartolo Colon - Mannnnnnnn, this dude at 44 years old and at who knows how many pounds overweight, almost threw a perfect game against the defending World Series Champions on National television. Bartolo, don't you ever change. 
2. Beyonce - I probably could just leave this "UP" as just "Beyonce", and really, most wouldn't even bat an eye at it. Regardless, she earned it this week, slaying as always. Beyonce killed it at Coachella with some awesome performances, reuniting with Destiny's Child, and of course, making history as the first black woman to headline the festival. 
3. New York Mets - Even this Yankees fan has to give it up to the Mets and their hot start. They are playing some fun baseball, and well, it's backed by those big arms they need to rely on. Kudos to the Amazin's!

1. Philadelphia Starbucks - For those who don't understand "white privilege", here is an example of the opposite - two black men waiting…

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 - 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.
