Lois Ann Goodman, Pat Summitt, NHRA & Mello Yello, Allen Pinkett & SEC Officials: 8/30, Vol. 218, 3rd Edition

Don't you bow, don't bend.  Don't give up, don't give in. Hold on and just be strong because God will step in and it won't be long!  For your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y.

NHRA & Mello Yello
have joined forces

 The NHRA will increase from 23 to 24 events in 2013 and will assume a new series name to go with a renewed title sponsorship agreement for Coca-Cola through 2018 and title sponsorship will switch from the Full Throttle energy drink to the Mello Yello citrus soft drink, PGA Championship winner Rory McIlroy will miss the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda in October because of a scheduling conflict, Tiger Woods and Notah Begay III, longtime friends and former college roommates at Stanford, helped lead the American side to victory in the NB3 Foundation Challenge at Turning Stone Resort's Atunyote Golf Club, Florida State athletic director Randy Spetman has signed a one-year contract extension to remain at the school through February 14, 2014, Notre Dame's recent suspensions of four players could actually be a sign the program is gaining an "edge" that will help it be more successful, Irish radio analyst Allen Pinkett said Wednesday and he stated “I've always felt like to have a successful team you've got to have a few bad citizens on the team. That's how Ohio State used to win all the time. They would have two or three guys that were criminals and that just adds to the chemistry of the team. You can't have a football team full of choir boys”, the FBI kept a thick file, 868 page file on Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, but it mostly involves threatening letters sent to him and his staff years ago, and there's no mention of his former assistant Jerry Sandusky, who was convicted this year of molesting boys, the bidding process for the semifinal and championship sites for college football's upcoming playoff will begin this fall, BCS executive director Bill Hancock said.
SEC officials will have a new look Thursday night when South Carolina plays Vanderbilt as each on-field official will be wearing a wireless microphone system similar to those used in European soccer and will allow all officials, regardless of their position on the field, to talk to each other, Texas A&M and Arkansas have agreed to move their annual meeting to Cowboys Stadium in Arlington beginning in 2014 through the 2024 season, the NCAA has declared two New Mexico football players, senior defensive linemen Rod Davis and Fatu Ulale ineligible for several games at the start of the season due to the university self-reporting impermissible benefits, three East Carolina receivers senior Dayon Arrington, sophomore Danny Webster and redshirt freshman Antonio Cannon, have been suspended for the Pirates' opening game because they violated undisclosed team policy, the Ottawa Senators have signed forward Kyle Turris to a $17.5 million, five-year contract extension, the NHL and NHLPA remained at an impasse in the latest round of collective bargaining talks as the deadline for a lockout looms, Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp is out of the lineup a day after he collided with the center-field wall, but tests showed no structural damage to his left knee and jaw, Roger Clemens is planning to make a second start on September 8 for the Sugar Land (Texas) Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League, Fox 26 in Houston reported Wednesday night, and finally, Minnesota Twins All-Star catcher Joe Mauer has cleared waivers, according to a report by Fox Sports, as it’s usually not a sign of a team's desire to get rid of an expensive star but more of a procedural move to gauge potential interest in case a legitimate trade offer were to come about.
