Would You Rather: Questions #21-30

21. Would you rather live in Harry Potter's world or a life of fame and wealth?

Umm, I have note yet read any of the Harry Potter books or see any of the movies. I know, I know. Though, I've gotten the gist of the film by being around it, and of course, seeing many playing the game of quidditch. With that said - yeaaaaaaaah - give me a life of fame and wealth. Keep your sorcery. 

22. Would you rather date a celebrity of your choice or the hottest person you know?

The hottest person I know. I know them for their physical attractiveness, as well, as for who they are. Win, win. Plus, celebs are nuts. I don't need that type of drama in my life. 

23. Would you rather fly or be able to read minds?

Fly. Reading minds is way to intrusive for me. It removes too much of the mystery that makes life interesting.

24. Would you rather get a dream vacation or spend five days with anyone you want but remain in your hometown?

Ummmm, yeah. Just give me the the dream vacation. 

25. Would you rather have more time per day or more money per day?

Money is always great, but I am one of those people that never finds enough time in the day to do everything I want. It's probably the reason I stay up so late, and sacrifice sleep. Maybe thirty hours for the day? I would add those hours to my sleep schedule. 

26. Would you rather win the lottery or live twice as long?

Win the lottery. Once in a lifetime, right? 

27. Would you rather be a lawyer or a doctor?

This is interesting. I've been told since college that I have the skills to be a lawyer. However, I like the idea of helping people as most lawyers in my opinion, are annoying. For the sake of the question, and because I'm utterly torn on this, I am going with lawyer. I'll be one of those good-guy lawyers. You know, fight for those who don't have a voice...and all that. 

28. Would you rather have a rewind button in your life or a pause button?

Pause button. Mistakes are part of life. In some ways, they make life beautiful. 

29. Would you rather being able to communicate with animals or be able to speak all foreign languages?

Talking to Pandas, my favorite animals, would be utterly fantastic. Regardless, being able to speak all foreign languages provides you with a certain connection and access to other humans. I like the idea of the latter much more. 

30. Would you rather mentally never age or physically never age - at your current age?

Ooooh, so easy. Keep me physically at thirty-one. I'm good with that. But NEVER would I want to remain stagnant mentally. That's not living in my eyes.

1. JJ Wyatt - Not only has the man raised over $37M for Hurricane Harvey relief, but unlike many of the various charities we have become accustomed to, Wyatt is very transparent in how he will spend the money, and what he plans to do. Still in such awe of this. 
2. Tim Duncan - In the same spectrum as Wyatt is one of my favorite athletes, Tim Duncan. A native from the US Virgin Islands, Tim Duncan has been instrumental in Hurricane Irma relief by donating 20,000 pounds of food to the area. Such awesome stories in the midst of all these Natural disasters. The power of the human spirit is so great. 
3. Cleveland Indians - 22 Baseball games in a row. The Indians record winning-streak came to an end  this week, but it is damn impressive. Are they NOT the choice to make it back to the World Series from the American League?

1. London Attacks - SMH on these terrorists attacks. My heart goes out to those affected by more senselessness in the world.

Dope Sports Threads - Nike NBA Uniforms

When Nike was announced as the new provider of the NBA uniforms, formerly designed by Adidas, I was very intrigued on what the super creative company would do. The team of Adidas and the NBA always felt a little...well, off. Nothing wrong with either brand, they just don't seem like a good fit for one another. Hence, we got jerseys with sleeves and such under their term. 
Go back to soccer, Adidas. It's where you shine. 
Enter, Nike. And this is the perfect fit for the NBA. And thus far, the designs, names of uniforms, and feel for the upcoming aesthetics within the NBA is awesome. Again, Nike just doing Nike things. 
With the the new uniforms, as always, here are a few notes on the latest:

Pondering Picture #82

It's Welcome Week at the institution that I work at, and it's been quite the hectic week of meeting, greeting, and providing programming for new students. I'm also continuously amazed at the amount of international students we have, and the hearing the journey and testimony of their road to this point in their lives. 
Despite the rigorous joy, I sort of miss that peace of hiking the Ithaca, NY area just before this time. Loved chasing waterfalls...
Sorry TLC.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/3/17

1. J.J. Watt - What started out as a mere fundraiser for Houston with a goal of a few hundred thousand dollars has turned into a mega-story with Watt raising over $18M for Harvey relief in Houston. Watt deserves so much credit. An athlete truly in-tune with his city and community. And really, one that just does good for others. 
2. Frances Tiafoe - Monday night's 1st round opener against Roger Federer was absolutely classic. The 19 year-old American took the great Federer into the final moments of a fifth set with some serious swag. Tiafoe surely made a name for himself, and I'll definitely be looking for him in the future. 
3. Yale University - Look, I'm all for changing names and tearing down statues of people who don't deserve it - like, those who really don't deserve it. Not because of our distorted version of history. Kudos to Yale taking a step in this direction removing Calhoun, a big time slavery advocate, as a name from one of their buildings.
