            If I had not been For the Lord who, was on my side, I’d be lost like a ship without a guide!  For your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y.

Lolo Jones apologized for not
knowing Eric LeGrand was paralyzed
after he challenge her to a race
For your Olympic Sporting News, Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones trash-talked about head injuries to former Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand after he jokingly challenged her to a race on Twitter and when she responded that in part that he must have been hit in the head, she didn't know was that the defensive tackle had been paralyzed in a game, but has since apologized and LeGrand took it all in stride and with the backlash LoLo received, LeGrand called it ridiculous, Olympic stars Ryan Lochte and Allison Schmitt will headline the U.S. team for the short course world championships in Istanbsul, Turkey, December 12-16, Canada forward Christine Sinclair will have her FIFA disciplinary case heard Friday over critical comments she made about the referee after losing to the United States at the London Olympics in soccer, and finally, The International Cycling Union said a Swiss court ruling has prohibited Floyd Landis from repeating claims that UCI leaders corruptly protected Lance Armstrong from a doping case.

Mike Tyson can't enter
into New Zealand
For your Quick News & Notes, New Zealand authorities on Wednesday barred Mike Tyson from entering the country whose indigenous Maori people Tyson says inspired his facial tattoo, but the promotion and ticket sales for the event he is slated to appear, ‘Days of the Champion’, is still being promoted, all-time action fighter and two-division titleholder Arturo Gatti, who died in 2009, and light heavyweight champion rivals Virgil Hill and Henry Maske, are the newcomers to this year's International Boxing Hall of Fame ballot and the results will be announced at the end of the year, if the mandatory fight between junior welterweight titlist Lamont Peterson and #1 challenger Zab Judah takes place, both will be fighting for far less than expected as Peterson, who is the titleholder, is entitled to $37,500, which is 75% and Judah, as the challenger, would receive just $12,500 or 25%, but it remains unseen if the fight would take place, Lois Ann Goodman, a nationally known professional tennis referee charged with the coffee-cup killing of her husband gave police a DNA sample Wednesday after dropping her opposition to the procedure.

Pat Summitt said in an affidavit, that is part of a lawsuit filed against the University of Tennessee by former Lady Vols media director Debby Jennings,  that she initially felt she was being forced to step down as the Lady Vols' basketball coach by Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart, who later told Summitt that she had misinterpreted his comments, Taran Buie and Jamal Coombs-McDaniel, who both sat out last season as transfers, have been suspended by Hofstra head basketball coach Mo Cassara for violating team rules, Virginia starting point guard Jontel Evans is expected to miss six weeks after having surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right foot, Connecticut's athletic director says the university is looking for a sponsor to step forward and secure the naming rights for its planned basketball training center and has no plans to name the building after newly retired basketball coach Jim Calhoun, the Big 12 is disputing a newspaper report that its coordinator of officials "apologized profusely" to Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy following a blown call in Saturday's 41-36 loss to Texas, the ACC has decided to stay with eight league football games for the foreseeable future instead of transitioning to nine conference games in 2013 as originally planned, the conference announced on Wednesday, leading Georgia wide receiver Michael Bennett is out for the season after tearing the ACL in his right knee during Tuesday's practice, Gabriel Landeskog, last season's Calder Trophy winner as NHL Rookie of the Year, has agreed to join Djurgarden of Sweden's second division on a two month deal during the NHL lockout, Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn has decided to play for Hamburg of the German league during the NHL lockout, Los Angeles Dodgers All-Star center fielder Matt Kemp said he will undergo surgery Friday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, Sandy Alderson acknowledged the New York Mets are unlikely to pursue big-ticket free agents this winter, but team officials will make a priority of signing All-Stars R.A.
