Why name the award after Mr. Lumpkin? Because he is the longtime police chief in Athens, Georgia, widely recognized as the trail blazers of ridiculous athlete arrests. Whether it's scooter-related infractions, being passed out drunk on a toilet while taking a dump, the always dangerous "emerging from an alley", or passing cars on the right on a two-lane road, no one busts more heads for more flimsy reasons that the Athens-Clarke County Police Department.
What happened to that fantastic scoreboard, 'Dawgs? . . .
Either that dawg is so determined to hammer your ass he's going after you with the claw end, or he's so stupid he's about to hit himself in the face with the blunt end. It works for visitors and home crowds, really, since you can assume either with likely probability. Oh, and nice sweater, American Apparel dawg. There's skinny jeans behind that scoreboard and you know it.
