The Morning Dump: 8/10/12

The long history of the Los Angeles Lakers trading for great big men (Wilt, Kareem, Shaq) continues with the addition of Dwight Howard in a massive 4-team deal.  The 76ers will get Andrew Bynum and Andre Iguodala heads to Denver.

A United States reporter asked Usain Bolt about the rumors around doping in track by referring to the Jamaican track team as the “Jamaican Drug Team”.  He quickly apologized and re-asked the question but Bolt and the other Jamaicans are not too happy.

Tiger Woods shot a 1st rd 69 yesterday and is 3 shots off the lead.  We have seen Tiger come out strong in majors this year, only to falter on the weekend.  One of my favorite golfers, Carl Pettersson has the early lead at 6-under par.

The Washington Nationals are for real.  I can’t wait to see what happens when Strasburg hits his innings limit.  Will they shut him down?

The Orioles called Manny Machado.  Great talent, he will be a great major leaguer.  The question is do the Orioles put him at SS and bench Hardy or does he go to 3rd for now and SS later.

One play, one injury.  That’s the Ryan Mathews I know.

3 things impressed my very much last night watching preseason football.  1. The Saints D is legit.  They harassed Brady and the additions of Lofton and Hicks look nice.  2. THe Falcons offense will be very good.  Julio Jones is a beast.  3. RG3 will have no problem adjusting to the pros.  There will be growing pains, but he will be a star.

3 things that didn’t impress me.  1.  Ravens D looked old and slow.  2. Todd Haley’s play calling.  3. Peyton Manning throws aren’t coming out great.  Arm strength isn’t there yet.

Thanks for the challenge China, but the medal count belongs to us.

Team USA is going to beatdown Argentina after Campazzo’s nut check on Melo in the prelims.  They beat Argentina by 29 in the prelims.  I hope Coach K has to answer questions about running up the score after this game.
