Sunday Sundown Rundown - 3/13/16

3 Up

1. Homeless Man Resume - I came across this story and instantly knew it was this week's top "Up" spot. You just have to love a story of second chances. A homeless man creating resumes; a person giving him a shot; and ultimately him, beginning his redemption story. Great stuff. 

2. Erin Andrews - I can't imagine having to go through what she did this week, or even over the last few years. This is a sick world with some awfully sick individuals in it who feel no remorse in violating other individuals. Forget the money, Andrews taking the stand was pure guts, and I admire her courage in doing so. 

3. Bryce Harper - Thank you, sir! Baseball needs a wake up call on the tired "unwritten rules". I shared my thoughts this week on this (Baseball's Unwritten Rules - Harper Nailed It), but baseball needs one of it's big time young stars to send this message. Kudos to Harper for being honest.


3 Down

1. Terrorist Attacks - I hate the world we live in sometimes. Reading of the events that happened in the Ivory Coast shootings and the bombings in Turkey, this terrorist stuff is still here, and it's still real. 

2. Maria Sharapova - Not only has she been doping for a while, she was knowingly doing so. So far, she has gotten off pretty lightly. It amazes me how she hasn't received the backlash a cheater ought to. Can you imagine if Serena Williams was in this spot? 

3. Kim Kardashian Enablers - I won't even get into Kim K's recent photo, which is ridiculous. However, those that enable her with attention is what makes it all incredibly bad. WHY? Kudos to people like Chloe Grace Moretz, Pink, and others who have the courage to stand up, to refute the nonsense that it is, and look for more ways to empower women.

1. ROH/ NJPW & MSG - I know, that sub header reads like a crazy jumbling of acronyms, however, kudos to Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling who sold out Madison Square Garden this week. The first sold out show at MSG by a company other than the WWE. If this isn't evidence of the massive change within the wrestling business in 2018, I'm not sure what it is. 
2. Ramon Laureano Throw - That throw was absolutely insane. Just insane. Right on the money. 
3. Wayne Rooney - Speaking of insane plays, how about Wayne Rooney continuing to do Wayne Rooney things in MLS with this insane clutch play. The placement on that cross was just crazy.

1. Unite the Right Rally - It's still insane to me how these types of rallies are still so common. Especially after Charlottesville last year. But yet, here we are. SMH. 
2. Laura Ingraham - I don't even consider some of these talking heads on cable news legit anymore. What bothers me is not what they say, but the viewer…

1. Randy Moss' Tie - I don't care much for the NFL these days, but I did see the tie that Randy Moss wore for his induction. The tie acknowledged the many black men and women who were killed or died under various circumstances by law enforcement around the country. It's a nice gesture letting the families of those victims know they haven't been forgotten, and it's also one that once again brings to light the message that Kaepernick started. Not the anthem.

2. Jerry Jones Hypocrisy - Speaking of anthems...THIS was so fantastic. And so very true. By the way, remove the hat, Jerry! It's quite disrespectful to the flag and the anthem. Honestly, it's amazing how ridiculous this entire ordeal has gotten.

3. NRA Trolling - So the NRA is looking for money and are claiming they may cease to exist if they don't get the support. Kudos to the many who sent "thoughts and prayers" trolling the notorious organization. In a world where trolling is so co…

The IF Factor: Questions Answered #81-90

81. If you could enact one law in your country that does not currently exist, what would it be?

There would actually be quite a few. However, I would go with gun control. Nothing too elaborate, but the type of control that requires screening and effective security of allowing firearm usage in this country. 
82. If you could own only one thing for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
I would probably choose a good pair of pants. Weird? Yes, most definitely. But a good pair of pants sets the tone, and for a big and tall guy like myself, dictates the comfort for the day. As hard as pants are to find for us big guys, I'd like to own one pair, thus renting or borrowing everything else. If you happen to be one of those folks that has your perfect pants size in every store, you most likely won't understand this.

Impact Comeback?

It wasn't long ago that I officially took my heart back from Impact Wrestling (then TNA). It was during this time in which Dixie Carter and crew had been taking the loyalty of it's fans for granted, and really, doing one of the greatest disservices in pro wrestling history when it came to the potential and positioning of the company.

Regardless, here we are with yet another chapter of this company (2nd under this new ownership). Yet,  in an intriguing way, this new era is easily my favorite in the company's history since, well,  maybe that 2002-2006 run when it provided an alternative to the mega giant that is Vince and friends.
