Trusting only in Thy merit, would I seek Thy face; heal my wounded, broken spirit, save me by Thy grace…. I’m calling you Savior, Savior….hear my humble cry! Good morning and welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema on Gospel Radio better than when you it yesterday! I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!  Let’s Get It Started!

Week 1 for the 2012
NFL season kicked off!
You’ve been waiting and debating for all so long, ahhhhh the NFL season is here and it’s time to get it on!  The 2012 National Football League season kicked off last night with one of the oldest rivalry in the game as the Dallas Cowboys traveled to face off against the defending Super Bowl champs in the New York Giants and the first half started off slow both team until Dallas QB Tomy Romo hooked up for a TD with Kevin Olgetree before half-time as they took the 7-3 lead and in the 2nd half, both offenses came to life, especially for Romo who went on to toss 3 TD’s to go along with 307 blistering yards and running back DeMarco Murray helped open up the passing game with 131 ground pounding yards as the Cowboys showed they were for real as they notch the win for the first game of season 24-17.
The 2012 US Open kept churning yesterday as Andy Roddick’s professional tennis career has come to an end as he tried to hold off 7th seeded Juan Martin de Potro in 4 sets, but didn’t have enough in tank as he lost the match 6-7, 7-6, 6-2, 6-4, #1 seed Roger Federer was UPSET by 6th seeded Tomas Berdych in 4 sets 6-7, 4-6, 6-3, 3-6, 8th seeded Janko Tipsarevic got past 19th seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber in straight sets 6-3, 7-6, 6-2, while 2nd seeded Novak Djokovic cruised in straight sets over 18th seeded Stanislas Wawinka 6-4, 6-1, 3-1 as Wawinka retired and 3rd seeded Andy Murray is will continue to play for a major win as he needed 4 sets to notch the win over 12th seeded Marin Cilic 3-6, 7-6, 6-2, 6-0.
And the ladies played through more quarterfinals as #3 seed Maria Sharapova needed 3 sets to knock off 11th seeded Marion Bartoli 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 10th seeded Sara Errani won in straight sets 6-2, 6-4 against 20th seeded Roberta Vinci and 4th seeded Serena Williams had not problems with 12th seeded Ana Ivanovic with a crushing win of 6-1, 6-3.
Major League Baseball were running the bases last night as the American League had seven games on tap as the Minnesota Twins blasted the Chicago White Sox 6-2 with 2 homeruns from Alex Rios, the LA Angels dominated the Oakland A’s 7-1, the Cleveland Indians were walloped by the Detroit Tigers also with a score of 7-1 as Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder both launched homeruns, the Baltimore Orioles lost 6-4 to the Toronto Blue Jays with a homer from Rajal Davis, while the New York Yankees got past the Tampa Bay Rays 6-4 behind Russell Martin’s 15th homer, the Texas Rangers won by run 7-6 over the Kansas City Royals as Adrian Beltre’s 3 run homer help seal the deal and the Boston Red Sox lost 2-1 to the Seattle Mariners.
For your NBA Quick Dribbles, Chicago Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf and coach Tom Thibodeau have resumed negotiations about a contract extension for Thibodeau, according to a source familiar with the situation, the Brooklyn Nets have agreed in principle with Andray Blatche on a nonguaranteed contract, a league source told on Wednesday after Blatche was released by the Washington Wizards via the amnesty process, New York Knicks sharpshooter Steve Novak told on Wednesday that he and most of the team have organized a "pre-training camp" starting on Monday, the Los Angeles Lakers have signed rookie forward Reeves Nelson and rookie center Greg Somogyi to one year non-guaranteed contracts, the team announced Wednesday and finally, and Chicago Bulls superstar point guard Derrick Rose will dish out more than assist as he now is an equity partner in Giordano’s, a deep dish pizza establishment in Chicago.
