Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/30/16

3 Up

1. Bullpen Use - I love this post season for how the philosophy of baseball bullpens are being used. In my opinion, the idea of labels is rather ridiculous other than "closer". Throw your best arms, even if it's your closer to win the game. Terry Francona and Joe Maddon are definitely managing that way, and it's fantastic to watch. I'm not ready for baseball to end. 

2. Moise Morancy - Give this dude some credit for standing up for a little girl who was being groped by a pervert on a New York City bus. Morancy stopped the man, apprehended him, and kept him at bay until NYPD arrive. Of course, the police placed him in handcuffs as well upon arriving (profile much, America?), but later let him go.

3. Manny Pacquiao - Apparently Pac Man has a fight coming up soon - not sure I'm interested. Boxing needs to do better, but that's for another post, at another time. Regardless, Pac using funds from his Mayweather purse to build homes for 1,000 poor individuals is awesome. 

3 Down

1. Hillary Clinton's E-mails - So apparently, the Department of Justice will reopen their investigation of Hillary Clinton's handling of, you know, "the e-mails". I'm not defending her, but I'm so sick of the things surrounding this election. Has anyone else really wrap their minds around the fact that election day is mere days away. Ugh. Not excited to vote at all. 

2. Roger Goodell - I can honestly say I have not watched one game of football this season. That might change, but I find no interest in the league lately, especially considering how shady the NFL really is. Look no further than his latest interview in which he attempts to defend domestic abuses cases in the NFL by stating "fans don't understand". Ugh...

3. Dixie Carter - The current majority of TNA Wrestling has mismanaged the company into the ground with some extremely shady practices. Tomorrow, the company's fate comes to ahead as a court will determine who will be given majority ownership. For me, I'm rooting for Billy Corgan. But, my guts tells me it's Carter. 

2 Unfortunate

1. Jose Fernandez Autopsy - It doesn't take away from the sudden loss or the moral of life's unpredictability that comes with it, but, hearing of cocaine and alcohol being a factor in the crash is troubling and well, so unfortunate. 

2. Cleveland Indians - The story is great, but how is no one questioning the ridiculous microaggression-filled name that is the "Indians". How about the Chief Wahoo logo? If it's my call, the franchise needs to lose it.

One More Year of Possible Frustration. A Future of Guaranteed Idiocy.

One Year.

After all the drama, after all of the controversy, it now comes down to one year for Isiah Thomas to turn around the mess that he created. Isiah has one year to improve the group of misfits that he has put together for an NBA roster.

One Year.

Good luck Isiah.

The fact of the matter is that the Knicks are a mess. They have become arguably the most embarassing franchise in sports. A collection of high-priced players with no resumes of winning else where combined with a lack of leadership on the coaching, front office and ownership level is a combustible formula for any sports organization. It's sad. It's sad to see an organization that is used to winning and has a history of greatness and class reduced to nothing. Guys such as Patrick Ewing, Clyde Frazier and Willis Reed all who have worn that illustrious blue and Orange "New York" across their chests with pride and dignity are now an afterthought. Madison Square Garden - the mecca of basketball, and most hi…

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/21/18

3 Up
1. Women's March - I'm happy to see this movement wasn't just a reactionary thing to last year's happenings, but one that continues to move forward. It's a continue reminder that the fight for equality for us all is still ongoing. 
2. Aly Raisman - Raisman stood up land et the world know what was done to her and how corrupt USA gymnastics currently is. She really left it all out there, and it was quite eyebrow raising. It was also just as sickening to hear what has been going on, and what has been covered up. 
3. Tom Brady and the Patriots - Give the man his due. Brady is 40 years old and still winning. I don't care for the Super Bowl all that much anymore, but I recognize and respect the greatness. It's a once-in-a-generation deal, and I appreciate it. 
3 Down
1. Government Shutdown - Ugh. Come on...I don't care whose fault it is, this is a disaster. 
2. Deportation of Jorge Garcia - Look, I'm going to say something I'm sure will divide tho…

The Pondering 10 - All-Time Favorite Championship Belts

With the WWE finally moving on from the ridiculousness that was the appearance of the WWE championship (Really, they kept a spinning title for eight years), and of course the unveiling the look of the title, it got the wheels turning on the best looks for championship belts. From pro wrestling, boxing (although, don't expect to see any on this list as they are usually ugly), and mixed martial arts, there are plenty of different models, types, and appearances that come with them. The following Pondering 10 list is my favorite all-time championship belts.
