The Morning Dump: 6/18/12

I hope all you fathers out there had as good a father’s day weekend as I did.  Now where did I put my coffee.

What do Earnhardt wins and the summer Olympics have in common? They happen every 4 years.

If your state fought on the losing side in the civil war, most of you are celebrating the end of Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s 143 race winless streak.  I hear the 88 flag will be flying above the N.C. state capital.  There will also be victory lap reenactments and rides for the kids.  I also hear Tony Stewart will not make an appearance.

The Heat has taken a 2-1 lead on the Thunder and Lebron James is shutting down Durant one-on-one.  Lebron will always have his critics but he is one of the best.  I can only think of one player who would beat him one-on-one (Chamberlain).

LaDainian Tomlinson is retiring as one of the greatest RBs in the history of the game.  His 162 TDs and 13,684 career rushing yards leaves little doubt he is a first ballot Hall of Famer.  His 2006-2007 season was the greatest ever.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. stopped Andy Lee in the 7th to set up a middleweight unification bout with Sergio Martinez.  This is the best fight on the horizon other than the mythical Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight.

It looks like Stony Brook left all its offense in New York.  They looked outgunned by UCLA and Florida State from the start.  Arizona is impressing me big time.
