Shaq In Mexico, ABA Merger, NFL Tix Prices & NL MLB, WNBA, PGA & MLS Scores: 9/7, Vol. 224, 2nd Edition

            There's a voice that cries out in the silence, searching for a heart that will love him….longing for a child that will give him their all, give it all, he wants it all!  Welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y.!

The top 5 highest NFL premium
ticket prices
            Just like their American League brother, the National League had a light schedule last night with on 3 games on tap as the Colorado Rockies were SHUT OUT by the Atlanta Braves 1-0 as the Braves won on an unearned run, the Milwaukee Brewers were thrashed by the Miami Marlins 6-2 as Josh Johnson struck out 7 batters and the Washington Nationals and the Chicago cubs benches and bullpens emptied after a testy exchange between Cubs bench coach Jamie Quirk and Nationals 3rd base coach Bo Porter, but really no action as the Nationals manhandled the Cubs 9-2.
The BMW Championship started yesterday at Crooked Stick Golf Club as Bo Van Pelt, Webb Simpson, Rory McIlroy and Graham Delaet are all tied for 1st with an -8 under par, Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh are tied for 2nd at -7 under par and host of golfers are tied for 5th with a -6 under par.
The ladies of the WNBA only had urone game on hardwood as the Tulsa Shock was literally spanked by the Seattle Storm 101-74 as Lauren Jackson scored a season high of 23 points.
Major League Soccer had only one game as the Houston Dynamo SHUT OUT Real Salt Lake 1-0.
In sporting news, some 42 years later and some $240 million dollars richer, former American Basketball Association owners Ozzie and Dan Silna have been the beneficiaries of the growth of the National Basketball Association, particularly in dealing with TV revenue.  In 1976, Ozzie and Dan agreed to fold their team so the NBA can move forward with a merger with the ABA and the Indiana Pacers, the now Brooklyn Nets, Denver Nuggets and the San Antonio Spurs agreed to pay the pair a portion of the TV revenue earned starting in 1980, as they were the teams that survived the merger.  However, the brothers think they have gotten the short end of the stick since they feel the league has omitted them from international broadcasts and cable packages and have asked a judge to re-open the anti-trust case.
For your NFL Quick Hits, Adrian Peterson hasn't wavered at all summer and says he is ready to play for Minnesota in the season opener, but the decision is out of his hands, three players fighting suspensions from the NFL's bounty investigation have told a federal judge they are comfortable with their representation by union lawyers and see no potential conflict of interest in the arrangement, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he was pleased with Wednesday night's season opener, the first time the league has used replacement referees in a regular-season game since the first week of the 2001 season, a 3rd grader was sent home to change since he wore Payton Manning’s #18 jersey since as the number 18 is associated with a local gang, and finally, the Jets have the highest average, non-premium ticket price in the league at $117.94, according to Team Marketing Report's Fan Cost Index, which was released Thursday afternoon, while the New England Patriots were 2nd at .10 cents lower, the defending champion New York Giants were 3rd at $111.69, the Chicago Bears top off at $110.91 and the Dallas Cowboys, the $2 billion team, was 5th at $110.70.
