Sunday Sundown Rundown - 3/27/16

3 Up

1. Easter - He IS Risen! Happy Easter to all of you, your families, and your loved ones. 

2. Teacher's Photo - In a world where terrorism is on the front burner, whether good, like this story of a top ISIS commander being killed, or all of the horrifying attacks this week, it's a photo like this from a teacher in Mississippi which reminds us that hate is often taught.

3. Syracuse Basketball - Having both the women's and men's teams in the Final Four is very, very impressive. Especially, the way in which both teams are doing it with grit, and a bit of drama. Kudos to the student-athletes, the school, and of course, the Central New York area.

1. Terrorism - From Brussells, Iraq, and the bombing in Pakistan on this Easter Sunday, I am so sick of this nonsense. The part that really sends me over is that fact that these terrorists scum are just blowing themselves up to take out as many as they can. Ugh...My prayers go out to the victims and their loved ones from each incident. 

2. Craig Sager - Sad to hear that the cancer we thought Sager defeated has returned. Even more sad is the statement made from his doctor that he has 3 to 6 months to live. Cancer sucks. So much. 

3. Bad Politics - The latest new-low in the Presidential run popped up as Ted Cruz was accused of having an affair, with alegations that the story was planted by Donald Trump. This whole entire race, both sides-both parties-all involved, has gotten utterly ridiculous.

1. Aly Raisman - Following the bravery of Mckayla Maroney and others in the #MeToo campaign, Raisman has stepped forward as the charges pile up for sexual abuse by former USA Gymnastics doctor, Larry Nassar. By the way, shame on USA Gymnastics for continuing to allow this culture. I shudder to think what else lies in the world of Gymnastics. 
2. New York Times - In a world where journalism - real journalism - is becoming harder and harder to find, The Times continues to break stories left and right, and did so again this week with the Louis CK piece. I think we all are tired of journalism wrapped in identity politics, and yes, even "fake news". 
3. Kristaps Porzingis - Obviously, you all know how much I love the Unicorn. But seriously, how enjoyable is he to watch? And barring injury, he can only get better. Melo, who?

1. Sean Hannity - Seriously, I don't even know how this guy sleeps at night. And really, I'm not even sure what kind of person follows thi…

Pondering Picture #82

I snapped this photo in midtown Manhattan following a meeting with believe it or not, various professors from my alma mater of Cazenovia College. It was tremendous catching up with them all, especially considering it's been ten-plus years since I've seen them. 
Sometimes, honestly, it's almost like I forget I spent four years in upstate New York. And when I am reminded of it, often I am amazed in how a such a small town helped prepare me to tackle the big city, New York City - my home. 
Life is crazy.
