After you've gone through the hurt…after you've gone through the pain. After you've gone through the storm….after you've gone through the rain. Prayed and cried, You've prayed and cried. Prayed and cried…prayed and cried. After you've done all you can, you just stand.

In sporting news, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has rejected the appeals of the four players he suspended for their role associated with the league’s bounty investigation of the New Orleans Saints. Goodell is still providing the four players, Jonathan Vilma, Anthony Hargrove, Will Smith and Scott Fujita, with an opportunity to have their suspensions reduced if they brought fourth new information. In his decision, Goodell stated “you elected not to testify or to make any substantive statement, written or oral, in support of your appeal; you elected not to call a single witness to support your appeal; and you elected not to introduce a single exhibit addressing the merits of your appeal. Instead, your lawyers raised a series of jurisdictional and procedural objections that generally ignore" the collective bargaining agreement”.
Instead of making an appearance in the run-off against Allyson Felix on Monday night, Jeneba Tarmoh elected to make an appearance on ESPN’s Sports Center to defend her decision to not take part in the run-off and stated in part “although I feel that I won and I got third and I deserve to be on that team and I feel that they took it away from me, it’s okay. When I gave the position to Allyson, I gave it to her with open arms”.
