The Morning Dump: 8/17/12

Today is my last day working as a resident of Columbia, SC.  I love the town, love the experience and most of all love all the people who have become my family here.  This is not goodbye.  It’s just a see you later.

I’m listening to The Cars this morning.  There is no better example of beautiful women chasing ugly rock stars than Ric Ocasek and Paulina Porizkova.

Bin Laden’s former translator has joined the ranks of the Lebron haters.

Tommy John is the latest to blast the Nationals plan to shut-down Strasburg while they are in the hunt for the World Series.  He told Colin Cowherd on The Herd that “I would hope the general manager has a degree in orthopedic surgery, or at least kinesiology or physiology, and I don’t think Mike Rizzo has any of that”.  Tommy John pitched 207 innings in his first year back and never missed another start in his career.

Clint Bowyer is looking for his 2nd win of the season at Michigan this weekend and is the favorite (like he is every race).  If by some miracle he doesn’t win, I think Carl Edwards will hit the winners circle for the 1st time this season.

Soon-to-be retired Chipper Jones hit 2 bombs on Chipper Jones Bobblehead Night at Turner Field.

Brian Urlacher has had so many knee surgeries this summer that his next one is free.
