Sunday Sundown Rundown - 3/20/16

3 Up

1. Cuba Visit - For the first time in 88 years, a U.S. President has visited Cuba. As relations begin to thaw between the two nations, it's nice to see history made as the official mending of the fences begins. 

2. Paris Attacker Caught - This clown has been on the run for too long. It's sad to see that it took this long, but regardless, it's nice to see this scumbag captured, and hopefully, brought to justice very soon. 

3. Basketball - March Madness has been absolutely tremendous. Also, the NBA was on full display last night in that epic Warriors vs. Spurs showdown. Whether it's college basketball or the pros, basketball is absolutely so much fun right now. Yay, roundball!

1. Donald Trump Riots - Without getting too political, the protests and riots that are coming out of Donald Trump's campaigns are very unfortunate. One, for the fact that this is part of a Presidential race, and also, for the idea that it has become the norm. Just ridiculous. 

2. NFL Brain Disease Admission - So a high-ranking NFL exec FINALLY admitted that the game is direcly linked to brain damage? Of course, this is announced during Cuba visits, the Paris attackers, Trump riots, and all that is March Madness. Yeaaaaaah, the admission seems very suspect to me too. Even if it's honest timing, we all know that they KNOW. It's what are they planning to do about it! Until then, save your admissions. 

3. Madonna - Look, if anyone were to pull the stunt that Madonna did, there would be public outcry. ESPECIALLY, if it were a male performer. How is this NOT considered sexual assault? AND the victim was seventeen! Oh yeah, she's Madonna...no big deal. The world can be so ass backwards sometimes.

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…

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.
