NL MLB Score, Julian White of FAMU, Jacob Bell & Minnesota Vikings News: 5/11, Vol. 140, 2nd Edt'n

Wherever you are, whatever you've been going through, God says the struggle is over for you, you've been in this place long enough and your mountainside has been rough, but God said the struggle is over for you!  Welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!

Marching 100
There was only one game in the National League in baseball as Washington Nationals knock off the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-2 as Stephen Strasburg earned his 3rd win of the seasons as he struck 13 batters in only 6 innings. Wow!

In sporting news, as reported in a previous sports segment concerning the hazing death of FAMU’s drum major Robert Champion at the conclusion of the annual Florida Classic in Orlando, the man who has been at the helm of the renowned Marching 100 for over a decade, Julian White has abruptly retired after months of fighting to keep his job.  With more trouble mounting for the program such as many as 60 students not being eligible to participate in band activities, but yet in still allowed to travel and perform.  If fact, two so-called members of the band Caleb Jackson and Brian Jones, who both were arrested in the hazing case, were not eligible, not only performed during the half-time show but also was given per-diem payments and allowed to stay in the hotel.  White indicated that his retirement would take effect as soon as possible and that recent developments affected his decision to hang up his baton.

As stories of concussions and former players having medical challenges, eight year veteran Jacob Bell retired from the game, just one month after signing a $890k dollar one year contract with the Cincinnati Bengals.  Bell, indicated that he doesn’t have any specific health challenges, but wanted to walk away while he still can and stated “I mean, we have so much more to look forward to after we're done with football that you know to have something like the brain trauma and the CTE stuff is such a factor…..for me it was a big consideration.”

For your Quick NFL Hits, a plan to build the Minnesota Vikings a new home cleared its final hurdle Thursday in the state Senate, Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell agreed to a five-contract extension on Thursday; terms of the deal weren't disclosed, the Carolina Panthers have agreed to a four-year, $12.58 million guaranteed deal with first-round pick Luke Kuechly, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Carolina Panthers have agreed to a four-year, $12.58 million guaranteed deal with first-round pick Luke Kuechly and finally, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey has been charged with misdemeanor drunken driving following his arrest last month after a traffic stop on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.
