Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/8/17

3 Up

1. Happy New Year - Good riddance, 2016. I wish all of you the best for 2017! 

2. Giannis Antetokounmpo - The Greek Freak is an absolute pleasure to watch. His name evokes just that - freak! I had an opportunity to watch the improvements of Antetokounmpo this week as he took on my New York Knicks, and of course, he gave them the business. That kid is going to be special to watch over the next few years. 

3. Tracee Ellis Ross - I don't really care for the Golden Globes. Sorry, I just don't. However, in reading about Ross' speech on the underepresentation of specific subgroups in Hollywood was very admirable. 


3 Down

1. Istanbul New Year Attack - Awful. Absolutely ridiculous. 

2. Ft. Lauderdale Shooting - Another sad story within the first week of 2017. And of course, it sheds light on the rules and policies of gun carry rules on flights. 

3. Russian Hacking of Election - Look, evidence and reports are moving closer and closer to confirming this happened. I don't care what your political affiliation is, this stinks. The idea that there was foreign influence in OUR elections is troubling to say the least.

1. Lt. Sayem Basad Pacha - No one will ever know what went through Pacha's head before he bear-hugged a suicide bomber the moment the vest was detonated. I can't even wrap my mind around the thought process. Whatever it is, this man is one thing - hero. And that's in the purest form. 
2. Kianoush Rostami - The earthquake that rocked the Iran/Iraq border was devastating. Yet, here is Rostami giving up his prized possession of an Olympic gold medal to raise money for the relief effort. Much respect. 
3. WWE War Games - In a more light-hearted "Up" this week (we need that from time-to-time, no?), the WWE's Survivor Series weekend was just fantastic. But man, so much props to everyone who put work into Saturday's NXT show, as well as the return of War Games. That match was so awesome.

1. Rob Moore - All I will say is this - it's bad when even something such as sexual assault is now becoming a topic and a driving force for identity politics. Re…

Just like any sport, movie, or form of entertainment, pro wrestling has produced many memorable characters, moments, and eras that fans hold dearly.
