The Morning Dump: 5/28/12

Happy Memorial Day to you all.

Congrats to Kasey Kahne for winning the snoozefest that is the Coca Cola 600.  I love NASCAR and have been to a number of races but any race at Lowes Motor Speedway bores me out of my gourd.

Dario Franchitti won his 3rd Indy 500 yesterday as the Hondas gave Chevy their first loss of the season.  The Dan Wheldon tribute at the opening was pretty emotional.

OKC is longer, leaner and faster.  How do you beat that?  By going right at them.  It took the Spurs 3 quarters to learn that but in the end they figured it out.  Thank you James Harden hitting that late 3.  I was one of the gamblers you helped.

Nick Fairley passed a Alabama State Trooper going 100 mph.  He is charged with DUI, evading police and open container.  Didn’t Gunther Cunningham say he was faster than Suh when they drafted him?  He was right.  Suh was only going 90 when he got arrested.

Bryce Harper hit his 2nd HR of the weekend yesterday for the NL East leading Nationals.  He is fun to watch isn’t he?

Yu Darvish got his 7th win of the season yesterday and now leads the American League.

Rajon Rondo is my NBA Playoff MVP so far.  He does it all and he does whatever it takes to win.

The Heat are huge favorites against the Celtics(a $100 bet on Miami to win the series gets you $18) but I think this will be a very physical series on Miami.

Zach Johnson overcame a 2 stroke penalty on the 72nd hole to win the Colonial.  Luke Donald won the European BMW Championship to regain the #1 world ranking.

I can’t wait for the Junior Dos Santos/Cain Velasquez rematch.

Lionel Messi ended his record-breaking season with his 73rd goal on Saturday.  The Greatest Ever!!
