Any prayers for Jim Bryan (#4 all time Arkansas high school basketball scorer with 2,700+ points (before 3-points invented ) ) would be appreciated.

    ...Veteran goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc, who has more than 100 caps for her country, is looking to inspire a nation again in what will be her fifth World Cup. With 100 days left, she is buzzing. “For us it’s that excitement,” said the 34-year-old from Maple Ridge, B.C., who will likely join Stephanie Labbe in backing up Erin McLeod. “It’s coming, it’s closer. This is what we’ve been waiting for, this is what we’ve been dreaming about. “As a child you dream of playing in an Olympic Games or a World Cup. But you never really dream of it being in...

    For the third time in International Little League history a team has been caught cheating and had its wins and title taken away. The latest story comes from Chicago and it involves an all-Black team. The governing body of international Little League has vacated Chicago’s Jackie Robinson West Little League (JRW) team title as champion of America. According to a spokesman for Little League International (LLI), its investigation into the eligibility of JRW players determined that not only had ineligible players been allowed onto the team, their status was known to team officials. The ineligibility of the players stems from...

    After six years in office, President Obama says his basketball skills went from "nothing but net" to nothing. "I’ll be honest with you: my game is a little broke, I've been a little busy," he told a crowd of students and faculty at Ivy Tech Community College in Indianapolis on Friday, where he touted his new plan to give students who meet certain academic standards two free years of community college. "The risk-reward ratio starts shifting. The chances of an Achilles tear or an ACL injury is increasing each month, and then the satisfaction that I get from playing diminishes...

MLive did a story on Harbaugh’s contract that states the coach will earn $150,000 if the players hit certain academic bench marks. Harbaugh will get $50,000 if he’s picked as the league’s top coach. The academic bonus is 3 percent of Harbaugh’s $5 million annual salary. ForTheRecord says: Ann Arbor Public Schools teachers who are evaluated and given the highest rating of “highly effective”...

Brady cannot pass squishy balls, thus the patriots lose to the Seahawks. Now that Kitten Bowl (hallmark) and Puppy Bowl (Animal Planet) are over. Bella and the Bulldogs (nick) female high school quarterback is over too. Lets have some real football, with the properly inflated balls and lets congratulate Aaron Rogers for making the MVP.

Winners, Losers, And Unequal Pay: Lessons From The Superbowl For A Are you ready for some football? Super Bowl Sunday is a day for fun, food and friends - and a good time to enjoy friendly rivalries as fellow Americans, rather than seeing one-another through “liberal” and “conservative” lenses.

    GOP's dynamic duo of deflation: John Boehner and Mitch McConnell The sports media has been in a tizzy covering the scandal known as “deflate gate.” After it was discovered that 11 of the 12 footballs used by the New England Patriots in their playoff game against the Colts were deflated, the media speculation has been intense about whether the Patriots altered the footballs to gain an advantage. It is amazing that with our immense problems, the media is fixated on such a trivial issue. Instead, a related topic is more important; why do Republican Party leaders suffer from deflated balls,...

    Lance Armstrong is back in the news again. I learned this from my pastor, Dr. David Murray, and his blog yesterday. You’ll recall Armstrong won 7 Tour de France cycling titles while on steroids. He basically acknowledges that he’s sorry he got caught but would do it all again. Dr. Murray’s focus is on repentance, trying to apply it to our own lives which can be difficult in light of the fact that Armstrong isn’t a Christian. Lance Armstrong has always been an odd character. He was involved in a sport that no one in America cares about except the...

    I win and you cheated. That’s what my four year-old says whenever we race from the bedroom to the kitchen, or up and down the driveway, or whatever he decides is now a competition.  He’s learned from his TV shows* that “cheaters never win”, and therefore anyone who doesn’t  win, must be a cheater.  And even if you do cheat, if you win, you haven’t cheated, because winners never cheat. My son has summed up liberal thought perfectly. In his four year-old brain, he’s failed to make the leap that winning by cheating robs you of the win, and that...

    News broke Friday evening that one of the greatest baseball players to ever play the game, Ernie Banks, had passed away at the age of 83. The man lovingly known as “Mr. Cub” spent his enter major league career with the North Side franchise, slugging 512 home runs and winning two NL MVP awards. The 14-time All-Star started his playing career in the Negro Leagues and was the first black player to put on a Chicago Cubs uniform. Despite playing for the perennially bottom-dwelling Cubbies, his optimism and love of the game never wavered, as evidenced by his famous quote,...

    In an emotion filled interview at the conclusion of Sunday's NFC Championship Game, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson perfectly reflected the powerful optimism that faith in God brings.  For a young man headed to his second Super Bowl and on top of the NFL in only his third season, he also displayed the refreshing humility of a true leader of men and follower of Christ. His humble optimism is a key component to a faith in God which is often derided or dismissed by the non-believer, and far too often forgotten or taken for granted by the believer. For Russell Wilson and entire Seattle Seahawks team, much...

    Senator Harry Reid was injured when a home exercise apparatus he was using collapsed under him. The former Majority Leader suffered broken bones in his face and ribs. Though his injuries were described as "relatively minor," Reid's anger at the Koch brothers was not. "I don't know how they did it, but their insidious campaign of terror against this country's legitimate leaders must be stopped," Reid demanded. Doubtful that a judicial remedy could suffice due to lack of evidence, Reid vowed he would "call upon the President to utilize his newly asserted executive authority to ensure that justice is meted...

Having done absolutely nothing in the NFL, Oprah Winfrey interviewed him and now he’s all the rage again within the liberal sports media. Let’s be clear about Sam, he hasn’t played a single down of football in the NFL. He’s no hero, he’s a washed up linebacker who simply doesn’t...

If you haven’t heard about this don’t be surprised. Sharia has been creeping into professional sports in America through Black athletes for the last several years. All of these players with made up “Islamist” names are under the spell of CAIR and groups like it. Combining this with the “Muslim population Rule,” which holds that as they grow in numbers within a given universe they will become...

    NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley spoke candidly about the problems facing the black community when appearing on a Philadelphia radio station, accusing “unintelligent,” “brainwashed” African-Americans of keeping successful ones down. While appearing on “Afternoons with Anthony Gargano and Rob Ellis,” Barkley was asked about a rumor that Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was getting criticism from his black teammates for not being, quote, “black enough.” Barkley went on a long monologue on the subject: ”Unfortunately, as I tell my white friends, we as black people, we’re never going to be successful, not because of you white people, but because...

    Fisherman in California Catches ATF Agent’s Gun and Badge in Lake October 10 2014 by Dan Cannon Share This Post Yet another fishing story where the catch ended up being a firearm. A fisherman at Castaic Lake in California was in for a bit of a surprise when he hauled in a backpack containing a handgun, a Dept of Treasury Badge, and a pager.

Last month attorney/activist Eric Vickers indicated in a letter to Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig that upcoming playoff games in St. Louis have been identified as "protest targets." A few weeks ago, the stadium was the scene of a foiled demonstration. Organizers Sarah Griesbach and Elizabeth Vega, two middle-aged white women who...

He, along with many other Cardinals fans, clashed with a small group of protesters who want to see Wilson prosecuted. The guy in the Darren Wilson jersey wasn't even the worst part. Here is a video of some of the protest from last night, via Argus Streaming News. It's rather long, so I'll point out some...
