You know it’s a slow “celebrity” birthday day when we have to use someone from the world of politics and news for our Daily Dump. Alas, June 21 is that day. Whatever side of the aisle you fall on, however you may feel about the security of information, whichever way you lean on important issues like privacy and intrusion, it’s a virtual (get it?) certainty that Edward Snowden has at least made people more aware of all of those things.
Personally, there’s not anything in life I care enough about to basically spend the rest of mine on the sneak. But that’s just me. Having lived in DC for a decade or so, embassies are nice, no doubt. But I couldn’t be confined anywhere and be happy. Maybe the Playboy mansion. I guess that would be a slightly different story, but I digress.
Regardless, Snowden is 34 today, and if I was on the lamb and holed up in an embassy somewhere wanted by nearly every intelligence agency, I’d probably watch a lot of MAC football replays. Pretty points and high octane offenses always take my mind off of national security.
On to the sports news and notes you need to know from an undisclosed location in today’s Hustle Belt Daily Dump....

Former NFL Tackle Comes Out | SBNation
A sad, inspiring, and courageous story all rolled up into one. Worth your time and probably worth some thought after the fact.
Happy Hump Day, everybody. Half way to the weekend.
