The Morning Dump: 8/8/12

“Either you run the day or the day runs you.  Bring on the Red Bull”- Jim Rohn and Charlie Copeland

Robert Harting has it right.  The German discus thrower showed us all how a gold medal celebration should look.

I love the move by Penn State to put blue ribbons to support victims of child sex abuse on their jerseys.  Class move.  I will be rooting hard for Bill O’Brien and the rest of the Penn State community to rise up from this and become an example doing it right.

Ashton Eaton started his quest for Olympic decathlon gold with the fastest 100m in Olympic history for a decathlete.  The decathlon is my favorite event and the winner truly is the greatest athlete alive.

South Carolina’s Byron Jerideau is a beast.  If you are scoring at home, that’s 708lbs of teammates he carries on his back.

How mad are the Jets players at Tebow for winning each wind sprint yesterday by a wide margin?  That team is in implosion mode already.

Time to shut up, AJ Allmendinger.  Talking about why you failed the test only keeps it in the news.  Do your treatment and be quiet if you want back into NASCAR.

”He was comforting us.  He wrapped me up in a big bear hug, and he told me everything was going to be alright. That’s the Andy I know.”- John Harbaugh’s remarks about Andy Reid at Andy’s son’s funeral yesterday.  Many of the comments I have seen are just like this one.  Andy Reid spent the funeral yesterday comforting every person he saw.

Can Jennifer Kessy and April Ross get the gold or will May-Treanor/Walsh-Jennings put the perfect end to their Olympic careers with a 3rd straight gold?  Be somewhere you can watch it at 4pm today.
