The Morning Dump: 2/22/12

Are you ready for the DUMP?  I am.  State auditor was in my office yesterday and left with a smile.  BOOM BABY!  GET SOME!  Happy ******* Wednesday!

I saw a report that Yu Darvish (FYI: Rangers New Japanese Pitcher) looked impressive in camp on Tuesday.  What a joke.  I could look impressive on the first day of pitcher/catcher spring training and I suck. All they do is throwing to first base and stretching.

The Accenture Match Play Championship starts today.  My pick to win is…  Dustin Johnson.  Tiger will advance deep also.

Brady Quinn breaks down Tebow’s “humble” facade in GQ.  Bishop, I think that means I win.

The Mariners have dropped Ichiro Suzuki out of their leadoff spot to 3rd in the order.  After batting under .300 for the first time last year I think he will have a rebound year.

The WSJ reported that Joe Sakic was the highest paid athlete ever in proportion to the others in his sport.  In 1997 Sakic made $17 mil and that was 14.56 times the league average of $1.7 mil.  Jordan was 2nd.

Jason Campbell left his bride-to-be at the altar in the Dominican Republic over the weekend.  Someone probably told him that the marriage would still be legal in the U.S. so he bolted.

4 of the 5 founders of The Sports Dump will be participating in the Million Mustache March on 4/1/12 in Washington, D.C..  Greg will not because his “Big Boy” hair has not come in yet…  Upstairs and Downstairs.

I am working on a list of offensive slurs used to describe the people of Turkmenistan.  I don’t plan on using them but I hear there is a pretty good small forward that the NBA will be all over soon and I don’t want to pull an ESPN when I write about him.

Tom Brady’s mentor and maybe the one man who could fix Tebow, Tom Martinez passed away yesterday.  If you get a chance watch the piece ESPN ran on his and Brady’s relationship.  Great stuff.
