The Morning Dump: 10/16/12

“What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.  Unless it’s polio.  There is no chance that will make you stronger.”- Jumbo

I hope this is not the last we will see Ray Lewis on a NFL field, but a comeback from this kind of injury at this age will be tough.  He is the greatest LB of all time and ranks 2nd on my list of defensive players in my lifetime.  1. LT, 3. Reggie White, 4. Bruce Smith, 5. Junior Seau.

Lefty misses the $1M shot, but hits for $50k.

Peyton Manning and the Broncos came back from 24 pts down at halftime to beat the Chargers 35-24.  It was the biggest road comeback in NFL history.  Phillip Rivers had a good half.  It just wasn’t the half that mattered.  I love it when Phillip Rivers is sad.

Hall of Fame coach Bobby Knight is selling his championship rings, gold medals, sport coats and sweaters from his coaching career at auction.  He is using the money to pay for the education of his grandchildren.  What would you pay for the chair he threw across the floor?

Big win by the Giants over the Cardinals last night.  If I was Matt Holliday, I would not dig in too deep in the batter’s box on Wednesday.

This Zumba instructor sex scandal story is great, but the guy I feel bad for is the one who just wanted to try Zumba and now his wife doesn’t trust him.  This trial should be easy.  Judge: Sir!, Suspected John: Yes, your honor?, Judge: How many times have you been to this Zumba class and how much weight have you lost?, Suspected John: 6 days a week for 5 weeks and I have gained 5 lbs.  Judge:  Guilty!  Let’s go to lunch.

A man was stabbed outside this weekend’s Giants/49ers game for wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey.  This doesn’t bother me (He’s fine).  If you are going to go to a football game and you are going to wear a jersey of a team that is not even playing a mild stabbing is expected.

Can the Yankees get less than 0 hits against Verlander tonight?  The only chance the Yankees have is if Verlander starts thinking about Kate Upton and it makes it hard for him to do his leg kick.
