ALCS Score, NHL Lockout Update & NBA Quick Dribbles w/ Delonte West: 10/16, Vol. 250, 1st Edition

Sing your way through your struggles.  Sing your way through your situations.  Sing your way through your strife’s. Sing your way through your skirmishes.  Oh, sing unto the Lord and make a joyful noise because He is worthy to be praised!  Good morning and welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema on Gospel Radio better than when you heard it yesterday! I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!  Let’s Get It Started!

Justin Verlander of the Tigers
had the Yankees under his control
 Major League Baseball had one game running the bases last night as the American League Championship Series is just one game shy of putting it in the books as the Detroit Tigers’ Justin Verlander pitched just above 8 innings to get the win as the Tigers get past the slumping New York Yankees 2-1 with help of a homerun from Delmon Young as the Tigers take a commanding 3-0 series lead.

In sporting news, the National Hockey League resumed lockout talks with NHL Players’ Association and in a surprising move, the league offered a 50-50 revenue split to the union and with a full 82 game season starting November 2.  The union indicated that the offer is not short and they are in process sifting through it to completely and fully understand it and the key issue is how the 50-50 split, which is down from the previous 57%, will affect the their current signed contracts.  So, it appears that perhaps by the end of this week, a deal should be in place and skating on the frozen pond should be upon us.

For your NBA Quick Dribbles, Delonte West's suspension from the Dallas Mavericks for conduct detrimental to the team lasted less than a day and was reinstated after a Tuesday afternoon meeting with coach Rick Carlisle and president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade believes his surgically repaired left knee is progressing ahead of schedule and plans to play in his third consecutive preseason game Thursday against the Detroit Pistons, Los Angeles Clippers guards Chris Paul and Chauncey Billups went through practice and a full-contact scrimmage Tuesday without incident heading into Wednesday night's preseason game against the Utah Jazz in Los Angeles, the New York Knicks have exercised Iman Shumpert's third-year option, the team announced Tuesday and finally, King County Executive Dow Constantine and Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn signed legislation Tuesday on the funding plan for construction of an arena that could be used to lure the NBA back to Seattle.
