Manny Pacquiao, Kevin Durant, AL Interleague & WNBA Scores, Olympics & NBA News:6/14, Vol. 164, 2nd Edt'n

There's a voice that cries out in the silence, searching for a heart that will love him, longing for a child that will give him their all, give it all, he wants it all! Good morning and welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio better than when you it yesterday, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!  Let’s Get It Started!




1992 Dream Team
20th Anniversary
Major League Baseball was jammed pack with games yesterday as one National League played out with the Houston Astros getting SHUT OUT and literally spanked 10-0 by the San Francisco Giants as Matt Cain threw the very first perfect game in the Giants 145 year history with 14 strikeouts and the 22nd perfect game in major league history and in the American League stadiums, the Interleague games continued and the Pittsburgh Pirates were clobbered by the Baltimore Orioles 7-1, the New York Mets annihilated the Tampa Bay Rays with a one hitter from R. A. Dickey, the Arizona Diamondbacks were SHUT OUT by the Texas Rangers 1-0, while the Milwaukee Brewers were edged out by the Kansas City Royals in 11 innings 4-3, the Philadelphia Phillies eked out a one run win against the Minnesota Twins 9-8, the San Diego Padres SHUT OUT the Seattle Mariners 1-0 and Stephen Strasburg continued his dominance and struck out 8 batters in 6 innings to notch his 8th win of the season,  as the Washington Nationals pounded the Toronto Blue Jays 6-2.

With the NBA Finals off last night, the Queens of the Basketball Court tipped off with two games on tap as the LA Sparks dribbled past the Connecticut Sun 87-81 as Candace Sparks torched the Sun with 33 points and 16 glass grabbing rebounds and the Seattle Storm were lambasted by the Chicago Sky 74-58.

As the NBA Finals are in full throttle and after OKC’s Kevin Durant lite up the scoreboard with 36 points in Game 1, Durant became the second player since the ABA-NBA merger next to Allen Iverson, who scored 48 points, to score the highest points in his first NBA Finals tied with Michael Jordan.  But what’s most impressive with his scoring prowess is that he does it so effortlessly.  Whether it’s catching and shooting the ball, coming off a pick and roll or shaking the rim with a thunderous dunk, it is all pretty much done without much energy exertion and self-glorified hype. 

In sporting news, since most people agree that Manny Pacquiao was robbed and bamboozled  in his fight against Timothy Bradley, that the World Boxing Organization announced Wednesday they will review the controversial victory.  WBO president Francisco "Paco" Valcarcel, who was ringside for the fight stated “I want to clarify that in no way does this say we are doubting the capacity of these judges, which we consider as honest and competent judges.”

For your London Summer Olympic News, I had the pleasure of watching the 20th anniversary of the Dream Team that included a laundry list of talented players with the exception of Isaiah Thomas, who was intentionally left off the team, but 20 years later, he harbors no bitterness and congratulated The Dream Team on their anniversary, the 2010 Tour de France champion Andy Schleck pulled out of this year's race due to a spine injury he sustained during the Criterium du Dauphine last week, and finally, Cameroon-born Daniel Koum rocked Australian weightlifting by claims that he demanded $5,000 to compete at an Olympic qualifying event, knowing Australia's chance of having a competitor at the London Games would be wrecked if he withdrew.

For your NBA Quick Dribbles,  the Miami Heat remain noncommittal on whether All-Star forward Chris Bosh will return to the starting lineup Thursday in Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder, the NBA says the league's board of governors has voted to approve the sale of the New Orleans Hornets to New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson for $338 million dollars, the NBA fined Boston Celtics center Kevin Garnett .12 of his $21.2 million dollar salary or in other terms, $25,000 Wednesday for failing to make himself available to reporters following a Game 7 loss in Miami, Boston Celtics guards Ray Allen and Mickael Pietrus both underwent arthroscopic surgery Wednesday morning at New England Baptist Hospital, according to the team, and finally, the Oklahoma City Thunder's victory over the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals drew the highest rating for a Game 1 that ABC has ever had, drawing a 11.8 overnight Nielsen rating, up 10 percent over last year's Finals Game 1 between the Heat and the Dallas Mavericks.

Lance Armstrong, NL Interleague Scores, BCS, NFL W/ Tebow & Pacman Jones: 6/14, Vol. 164, 2nd Edt'n

I started singing, I started clapping, I started dancing, people were laughing, they knew my problems, they knew my pain, but I knew God would take them away! Welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y.!



Lance Armstrong is facing
new doping charges
There were a plethora of Interleague games in the National League stadiums as the New York Yankees got past the Atlanta Braves by one run 3-2 with the 19th homer from Curtis Granderson that notched the win, the Cleveland Indians were defeated by the Cincinnati Reds 5-3 with the assistance of a 2 run homerun from Brandon Phillips, the Boston Red Sox blasted the Miami Marlins 10-2 with 9 batters striking out against Felix Doubront, the Detroit Tigers hit up the Chicago Cubs for 8 runs to the Cubs 4 runs with a homer from Brennan Boesch, while the Chicago White Sox were SHUT OUT  against the defending champion St. Louis Cardinals 1-0 as Lance Lynn struck-out 12 batters, the Oakland A’s knocked off the Colorado Rockies 10-8 with 3 homers from 3 different A’s and the LA Angels are gaining some ground as they defeated the LA Dodgers for the second night in row, 2-1 with a homerun from Erik Aybar.

Lance Armstrong’s drama continues as the 7 time Tour de France champion received a letter Tuesday from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, saying they intend to file charges that he possessed and used human growth hormone, testosterone and blood-doping products while a member of the U.S. Postal racing team, beginning in 1998. If true, he could be stripped of all seven Tour de France titles.  Armstrong, of course have denied the allegations yet again and released a statement that read in part “These charges are baseless, motivated by spite and advanced through testimony bought and paid for by promises of anonymity and immunity. Although USADA alleges a wide-ranging conspiracy extended over more than 16 years, I am the only athlete it has chosen to charge. USADA’s malice, its methods, its star-chamber practices, and its decision to punish first and adjudicate later all are at odds with our ideals of fairness and fair play.”


In sporting news, college football is steadily creeping towards a playoff system to determine its national champion.  BCS Commissioners and Norte Dame’s athletic director made progress on Wednesday to create a future postseason model.  Although a variety of issues were discussed, the reiterated that the ultimate decision will come from school presidents, who will consider multiple options.


For your NFL Quick Hits, The NFL is hoping Adam "Pacman" Jones can help the 2012 rookie class not make the same off-the-field mistakes that have defined his pro career and has invited the Cincinnati Bengals cornerback to talk to rookies the rookie symposium about the wrong way to start a professional career, Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure was suspended for two games without pay Wednesday and will have to give up two more game checks for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin expressed disappointment and frustration about losing tight end Jake Ballard to the New England Patriots…so why put him on so early on minicamp, Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dontay Moch has been suspended for the first four games of the season because he violated the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, and finally, Tim Tebow, whom the New York Jets plan to use in a Wildcat package, revealed Wednesday at minicamp that his weight is 249 pounds, one pound shy of the ideal weight where they want him.
