NHL PLayoffs & NBA scores, Micky Loomis' scandal & Arkansas hires a coach: 4/24, Vol. 127, 1st Edt'n

A shepherd or teacher is what you could be or maybe a fisherman out on the sea….or maybe a carpenter building things, but who would imagine a king! Good morning and welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio better than when you heard it yesterday, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!  Here We Go!


There were two pivotal game 6’s on the iceeee last night in the National Hockey League as the New York Rangers forced a game 7 seven as they defeated the Ottawa Senators 3-2 as Derek Stepan assisted on 2 goals and the Phoenix Coyotes dominated and SHUT OUT the Chicago Blackhawks 4-0 to win the series as four players each a scored a goal.

The National Basketball Association had six games on the hard court last night as the Detroit Pistons came up short against the Indiana Pacers 103-97 with a double-double from Paul George with 27 points and 10 rebounds, the Charlotte Bobcats continued their march to secure the worst win percentage in NBA history as they were literally spanked by the Washington Wizards 101-73 as John Wall delivered 16 points and handed out 14 dimes on his delivery route, the Philadelphia 76er’s totally erased the New Jersey Nets 105-87 while the Toronto Raptors lost against the Milwaukee Bucks 92-86 with 25 points from Brandon Jennings, the Cleveland Cavaliers was defeated by the Memphis Grizzlies 109-101 with a double-double from Mareese Speights and the Portland Trailblazers was simply befuddled and totally embarrassed by the San Antonio Spurs 124-89 as the Spurs wrapped up the number one seed in the West.  The last two remaining teams in the Eastern Conference clinched a playoff berth with the New York Knicks and the Philadelphia 76er’s securing the 7th and 8th seeds and in the Western Conference, the Utah Jazz is the lone team that has not clinched a playoff berth.

In sporting news, as if the bounty scandal was not enough, New Orleans Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis is now dealing with allegations of using an electronic device that gave him the ability to eavesdrop on visiting coaching staff’s during his first three seasons as general manager.  The report was broadcasted yesterday on ESPN’s Outside The Lines and Greg Bensel, Saints VP of Communications stated “this is 1,000 percent false. This is 1,000 percent inaccurate.”  An investigation is pending.

To help stabilize a top five program with the Arkansas Razorbacks football team, the school hired John L. Smith to replace fired coach Bobby Petrino.  Smith coached with Petrino at Arkansas, Michigan State, Louisville and Utah State and prior to replacing Petrino, Smith was the head coach at Weber State for only four months.  It was Smith that approached Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long about returning to the program to be the bridge that provides a smooth transition and Smith signed a 10 month contract worth $850k dollars.
