WNBA Finals, WNBA 1st Team, NBA w/ Kevin Love, NFL w/ Ray Lewis: 10/18, Vol. 251, 1st Edition


Truth is I’m weak. No strength to fight….no tears to cry, even if I tried. But still my soul refuses to die and just one touch-will change-my life. Take me to the King, I don’t have much to bring, my heart and soul in pieces is my offering!  Good morning and welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema on Gospel Radio better than when you heard it yesterday! I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!  Let’s Get It Started!




Cheryl Reeves, coach of the
Minnesota Lynx was
fired up last night!
The Lovely Ladies of the WNBA continued their WNBA Finals last night with Game 2 of the series as the defending champs Minnesota Lynx crushed the Indiana Fever 83-71 as they were fired up by their coach’s Cheryl Reeves jacket-tossing sideline technical foul rant as Seimone Augustus was on en fuego as she made the sing out hallelujah with her 27 points and her teammate Maya Moore poured in 23 points to back her up as the Lynx even the series 1 game apiece.

And in off the court WNBA news, Connecticut's Tina Charles was the leading vote-getter for the All-WNBA team, and Indiana's Tamika Catchings earned her seventh first-team selection and LA Sparks' Candace Parker, New York Liberty Cappie Pondexter and Minnesota's Seimone Augustus joined them on the first team.

For your NBA Quick Dribbles, Olympic champion and two-time All-Star Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves, broke his right hand in a morning workout Wednesday and will miss six to eight weeks, after being suspended for less than a day, colorful guard Delonte West compared his one-day suspension from the Dallas Mavericks to a dispute at a family barbecue and West stated “Uncle Ricky handled the situation, you know what I mean?" We went and had a talk, and we came right back to the barbecue”, well alright then, the Boston Celtics added another versatile piece to their backcourt personnel Wednesday by signing veteran combo guard Leandro Barbosa, according to a league source, Milwaukee Bucks rookie forward John Henson will be held out of practice for about two weeks after suffering a left knee sprain and bone bruise in Tuesday's preseason loss to Chicago, the Sacramento Kings exercised the 2013-14 contract options of center DeMarcus Cousins and guard Jimmer Fredette, the Toronto Raptors exercised the fourth-year team option on forward Ed Davis' rookie-scale contract, and finally, the effects of the NBA's new anti-flopping program are being felt by players even before the program has been fully implemented as Golden State Warriors guard Jarrett Jack indicated that he was among the first NBA players to receive a warning from the league for flopping, tweeting Tuesday, "So I've been warned for flopping hahaha”……yeah, yeah…laugh now ‘cause it’s all fun and games till somebody’s pocket gets damage from fines…..huh!

For your NFL Quick Hits, Jonathan Vilma did something he hasn’t done all season with the New Orleans Saints, he practiced, as he awaits the appeal process of his suspension, during a radio interview, Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed confirmed Wednesday he has a torn shoulder labrum and that it may be affecting his level of play, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis tore his right triceps in Sunday's game against Dallas and underwent surgery on Wednesday, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder and he was placed on injured reserve with the "designated to return" tag, which means by rule, Lewis must sit out eight weeks before he can return this season, the NFL fined Houston Texans safety Danieal Manning $15,000 on Tuesday for his punch during the team’s 42-24 loss on Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers, and finally, fullback John Conner, a Rex Ryan favorite who became a reality-TV sensation during the New York Jets  appearance in 2010 on HBO’s Hard Knocks, was waived Wednesday with an injury settlement.

The Cards downed the Giants
in Game 4 of the NLCS
Major League Baseball had two games scheduled yesterday since the Detroit Tigers & New York Yankees game was postponed due to inclimate weather, but Game 3 of the National League Championship Series played on as the defending champions St. Louis Cardinals knocked off the San Francisco Giants 3-1 as Chris Carpenter launched a homerun as the Cards take a 2-1 series lead.

LeBron James will have to make
sure his chalk tossing is 90
seconds or less
In sporting news, the National Basketball Association would like to make sure games this season start on time and one way they are looking to achieve this feat is by putting a time limit on pre-game rituals.  You know, the orchestrated hand slaps, high five’s, six’s and seven’s and sometimes even eight’s, the chalk tossing and there is even the Oscar nominated drawn out skits.  In order to accomplish this, the NBA will place 90 seconds on the game clock after team introductions are finished, and once the clock strikes zero, teams will be expected to play.  Once the clock reaches the 30 second mark, a warning horn will sound and an alert by the refs and if time has expired and teams are not ready, a delay of game penalty will be assessed and two delay of game warnings would equal a technical foul. 

Gabriela Douglas wins
           Sportswoman of the Year

   For your Olympic Sporting News, Olympic all-around champion Gabby Douglas has won Sportswoman of the Year honors from the Women's Sports Foundation and she beat out Lindsey Vonn, London Olympians Serena Williams, Missy Franklin, and Allyson Felix, Lance Armstrong's former physician Dr. Michele Ferrari, has denied accusations that he masterminded the doping habits of the cycling great and other riders, and finally, attorneys for the parents of elite open-water swimmer Fran Crippen, who drowned two years ago during a race in the United Arab Emirates, are weighing legal action against the sport's international and national governing bodies.
