2012 NFL Draft in NYC & NHL Playoffs Scores: 4/27, Vol. 130, 1st Edition

The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty, let all the earth rejoice, all the earth rejoice. He wraps Himself in light and darkness tries to hide, it trembles at His voice…so I ask, how great is our God? 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!  Le’ Go!

One of the most exciting days off the field took place last night under the bright lights of New York City at Radio city Music Hall, as the National Football League kicked off round one of the 2012 NFL Draft as there were a total of 8 trades made in the first round and the first round finished in record time. The first two picks were no surprise as Andrew Luck of Stanford was selected #1 overall by the Indianapolis Colts to replace their former legendary quarterback Peyton Manning and the 2nd pick went to the Washington Redskins as they selected Baylor University standout quarterback Robert Griffin, III.  The Cleveland Browns jumped up to the 3rd spot to select stellar running back from Alabama Trent Richardson, the Minnesota Vikings dropped from the 3rd spot to the 4th spot and still selected the player they coveted, Matt Kalil, offensive tackle from USC, the 5th pick witnessed the Jacksonville Jaguars selecting Justin Blackmon, wide receiver from Oklahoma State, while Morris Claiborne, corner back out of LSU was selected 6th, the 7th pick claimed another Crimson Tide out of Alabama as Mark Barron, safety was selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  As everyone expected, Ryan Tannehill, quarterback from Texas A&M was selected 8th by the Miami Dolphins, the Carolina Panthers selected Luke Kuechly, inside linebacker from Boston College at #9 and rounding out the top ten picks is Stephon Gilmore, cornerback from South Carolina went to the Buffalo Bills.  On a local note, the Houston Texans selected Whitney Mercilus, defensive end out of Illinois at the 26th pick to replace dominating defensive end Mario Williams. The winners of the draft are as follows as the Minnesota Vikings as they received 3 picks from the Cleveland Browns and still landed they player they coveted, the New England Patriots made two excellent trades finally drafted a pass rusher and significant inside linebacker and the St. Louis Rams drafted a key defensive player and they have three second round selections to go along with two first-rounder’s each in 2013 and 2014. Now the losers in the first round were the Seattle Seahawks as the selected a player that some didn’t have being drafted in the second round, the Tampa Bay Bucs as the traded down and missed out on cornerback Morris Claiborne and the Denver Broncos were considered losers since they traded back and missed out on some really good players as well. The conference that won in the first round was the South Eastern Conference, as they had nine players drafted in the first round, which included four players in the top ten as that conference continues to churn out outstanding football players.  Round two and three of the draft will commence later tonight at 7p Eastern Standard Time on ESPN.

So here’s the $80k question…did your team get better? Pontificate on that!

Now on to the action on the court, frozen that is, as the National Hockey League had not one, but two game 7’s as the Ottawa Senators lost by one measly goal against the New York Rangers 2-1 as Dan Girardi and Mark Staal each scored a goal to the help the Rangers advanced to the conference semi-finals and in the second game, the New Jersey Devils needed double-overtime to knock off the Florida Panthers 3-2 as Adam Henrique scored two goals, but one crucial goal came in overtime to guide the Devils into the conference semi-finals.

In sporting news, general manager of the New Orleans Saints Micky Loomis finally spoke about his alleged wiretapping scandal and was livid and angry about the accusations and stated “I have never asked for the capability to listen to an opposing team's communications, I have never inquired as to the possibility of listening in on an opposing team's communications. And I've never been aware of any capability to listen in on an opposing team's communications at the Superdome or at any NFL stadium and frankly, I don't know who made the allegation and I'm angry about it.”
