NFL News w/ Green Bay Packers, Robinson Cano Booed, Olympic News w/ Lance Armstrong: 7-11, Vol. 183, 2nd Edition

I'll pray for you, you pray for me, I love you, I need you to survive, I won't harm you with words from my mouth I love you, I need you to survive! Welcome back to your Spiritual Sports on Rhema Gospel, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y.

Robinson Cano reacts to the booing
during the Home Run Derby
During Monday night’s Home Run Derby, the captain of the American League, Robinson Cano was booed viciously and constantly after he promised to select a Kansas City Royal player, most notably Billy Butler to be in the Home Run Derby, in his hometown stadium, but Cano decided not to select Butler and the fans voiced their displeasure over, and over and over again.  A similar situation occurred at last year’s derby when Prince Fielder did not select Justin Upton from the Arizona Diamondbacks to be in the derby in his hometown stadium.  So to ward off any such situation in future derbies, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig is considering a rule that a hometown slugger be included in the Home Run Derby in his own stadium.
For your London Summer Olympic News, U.S. District Court Judge Sam Sparks in Austin dismissed a lawsuit filed by Lance Armstrong that is aimed at preventing the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency from moving ahead with charges that he used performance-enhancing drugs throughout much of his long career and Armstrong can re-file in 20 days, Judge Charles Haddon-Cave, a High Court judge in London rejected the argument by locals opposed of placing missiles on top of their apartment building and stated the missiles presented "no real threat" to residents and were a necessary part of Olympic security, President John Fahey, the head of the World Anti-Doping Agency urged drug cheats Tuesday to withdraw from their Olympic teams and stay away from the London Games and said athletes will face the strictest anti-doping program in Olympic history and stand only a small chance of escaping detection, and finally, during this, the summer of the 40th anniversary of Title IX, American women have reached another milestone in sports….for the first time, they outnumber the men on the U.S. Olympic team.  And speaking of Title IX, make sure read and/or listen to my commentary titled ‘Thank God for Title IX’ on my blog site ceejaysports.com in the June blog archive section.
For your NFL Quick Hits, if Drew Brees does not have a long-term contract in place by Monday's 4 p.m. ET deadline, the New Orleans Saints quarterback has no plans to sign his franchise tender and report to training camp, according to league and team sources, former Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon ran a 4.52 40-yard dash in front of representatives from 21 teams at his pro day Tuesday, according to the Houston Chronicle as he held the workout in advance of Thursday's supplemental draft, the attorney for former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf says authorities in Texas are no longer seeking to extradite Leaf and revoke his probation and will be transferred to the next treatment program for his addiction to painkillers, and finally, the Green Bay Packers announced Tuesday that they had a record year financially, driven in large part by their 13-0 start to a season in which they were the defending Super Bowl champion and they had $42.7 million in net income in 2011-12, an increase of 150 percent over the previous year, while their total revenue was $302 million, up 6.9 percent.

And here I am to worship, here I am to bow down, here I am to say that you're my God. You're altogether lovely, altogether worthy, altogether wonderful to me!  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!

Prince Fielder win his
2nd Home Run Derby
     As Major League Baseball took a break from their regular season, they kicked off their All Star break with the State Farm Home Run Derby to a thrilling crowd at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, MO and the night belonged to a Prince!  Prince Fielder joined baseball great Ken Griffey, Jr. as the only players to win multiple home run derbies as Fielder outlasted Jose Bautista in the final round 12-7.  As for the captain of the American League Home Run Derby Team and defending champion he blasted dud, after dud, after dud, after dud…you get the picture, as fans of the Kansas City Royals booed Robinson Cano repeatedly for primarily for not selecting Royals Billy Butler, who totaled 16 homeruns at the break and wasn’t not selected and fans repeatedly voiced their displeasure with Cano and teammate Curtis Granderson  tweeted after the event “that was the most interesting reaction to a home (run) derby I’ve ever seen, but the fans were excited which is all that counts.”
     For your NBA Quick Dribbles, as the Orlando Magic try to find and/or create ways to ship disgruntled All Star center Dwight Howard out of the City Beautiful, it may require four teams to pull off this complex deal as a tentative deal includes Howard going to the Brooklyn Nets along with Jason Richardson, Chris Duhon and Earl Clark in the proposed deal and the Magic would get Brook Lopez, Luke Walton, Damion James, Shelden Williams, Armon Johnson and three first-round picks, which will include two from the Nets and a lottery-protected first round from the LA Clippers. The Cleveland Cavaliers are also involved and would get Kris Humphries, Quentin Richardson, Sundiata Gaines and a first-round pick from the Nets and $3 million in cash and the Clippers would receive MarShon Brooks.  Now this just merely a framework of a deal and there are several moving parts that would need to fall into place prior to the deal being consummated. The New York Knicks will acquire unrestricted free agent center Marcus Camby in a sign-and-trade deal with the Houston Rockets, according to a source close to Camby and the Rockets receive guard Toney Douglas, center Jerome Jordan, forward Josh Harrellson and second-round picks in 2014 and 2015, according to a league source, sharpshooter Steve Novak has agreed to re-sign with the New York Knicks in a deal worth $15 million over four years, Miami Heat guard Dwayne Wade underwent surgery on his left knee Monday morning, and told ESPN's Rachel Nichols that the procedure went well, and finally, the Sacramento Kings have signed first-round pick Thomas Robinson to a rookie contract.
