US Open, Monday Night Football, WNBA Inspire Luncheon, AL MLB Scores & AL Standings: 9/11, Vol. 226, 1st Edt'n


Sometimes you have to encourage yourself. Sometimes you have to speak victory during the test.  And no matter how you feel, speak the word and you will be healed; speak over yourself, encourage yourself in the Lord!  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!  Here We Go!  And before I kick off this the sports segment, let us not forget those who lost their lives as victims and those who lost their lives as hero’s during September 11th…..may God rest their souls in peace…..and God Bless America!

Andy Murray gets one a best
kisses of his life after winning
the US Open
What a year it has been for Great Britain’s 3rd seeded Andy Murray who won a gold medal during the 2012 London Olympics and until yesterday, it had been 76 years since a British man won a Grand Slam singles championship, but Murray brought that drought to an end as he outlasted and ousted 2nd seeded Novak Djokovic and captured the 2012 US Open in 5 sets 7-6, 7-5, 2-6, 3-6, 6-2.  
            Monday Night Football kicked off last night with a double header as the Cincinnati Bengals was annihilated by the Baltimore Ravens 44-13 with 299 passing yards from Joe Flanco to go along with his 2 TD’s and Ed Reed did what Ed Reed does as he became the NFL leader for interception return yards, after pick 6’ing and interception for 34 yards and the California Battle between the San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders witnessed the Chargers starting the season off right with a 22-14 win against those Raiders as Philip Rivers threw for 231 yards and one score.
            There were only 10 games total in Major League Baseball as the American League had only 3 of them starting with the Detroit Tigers getting blasted by the Chicago White Sox 6-1 with A. J. Pierzynski’s 26th homer, the Cleveland Indians hammered by the Minnesota Twins 7-2 as Lonnie Chisenahall went yard and the Oakland A’s knocked off the LA Angels 3-1 as Brandon Moss belts his 17th homerun.
As the Hunt for October is just around the corner, the American League standings have the New York Yankees atop the of the East, but only by one game over the Baltimore Orioles, the Chicago White Sox leads the Central with the Detroit Tigers 3 games behind and the Texas Rangers lead the West as the Oakland A’s are also 3 games back.      
            
Venus Williams at the WNBA
Inspire Luncheon
The WNBA was off last night as far as business on the basketball court, but they were on duty off the court in New York as they honored the outstanding women of US Olympic Team, who proudly brought home 58 of the United States 104 medals, with their Inspiration Award.  The women were honored at the WNBA’s Inspiring Women Luncheon by WNBA president Laurel Richie, who lead the charge in recognizing their accomplishments stated in part “You are an inspiration to the next generation of young girls who we know were glued to their TV sets and their iPads and iPods and all other devices, and they watched you compete. You have shown what women can be as athletes and what athletes can be as citizens."  Tennis star Venus Williams also attended the luncheon credited Title IX for providing her with the opportunities that she has experienced.  And speaking of Title IX, if you missed my commentary on the 40th Anniversary of Title IX, appropriately titled Thank God for Title IX, please log onto my blogsite at ceejaysports.com and click on the Commentary Corner link.
