I honestly feel like Evander Holyfield might be a guy who loves the Lord, but being fairly naive he’s been played by pulpit pimps all over. His status basically attracts evil like a magnet. He used to hang with Creflo Augustus Dollar, Jr. and once gave Toufik Benedictus Hinn (aka Benny Hinn) a bunch of money after a supposed healing, that was later found to be nothing but a misdiagnosis. Well now he’s got money problems and the “total life prosperity” (heresy) didn’t give him the physical ability to keep fighting at the top of the boxing game.
|Evander Holyfield Tries to Hold On: Says $10M Home Won’t Be Foreclosed
I really hope Holyfield is now worshiping with a group of saints teaching sound doctrine. But his life is an example of how the prosperity doctrine is not all it’s trumped up to be. Evander named and claimed wins for some fights and lost. He’s not a contender for anything in boxing now. He’s got money trouble and he’s “not liquid”. In this market, selling big trucks and houses is not easy.
We all know Evander while claiming the Lord’s name has continually been found in sexual immorality and has had marriage after marriage. And usually if someone is having an affair outside the marriage it’s him. So he’s been all messed up in many adulteries. It’s such a convoluted mess, I won’t even attempt to explain or sort it all out. I will say he’s never attempted to act like God approved of any time he’s been caught in immorality, far as I know and that’s a good thing. I just hope he gets his life together and lives godly.
Bottom line, 2 witnesses say Roger Clemens used HGH. Roger Clemens claims he never used it, oh but his wife did. I think Clemens is a liar, lied under oath and should be appropriately prosecuted.
|Clemens denies he ever used steroids
Has Roger Clemens been contemplating a run for public office? That “I think Andy has misheard – I think he misremembers our conversation.” line sounds just like some of the stuff I’ve heard politicians saying when they are asked direct questions.
Some might claim Brian McNamee is not a man of the highest moral character, given some events in his past, but he’s been on point with other claims regarding who used HGH. Let’s remember, Roger Clemens has 2 witnesses against him, not just McNamee.
Pettitte, who spent the last nine seasons as a teammate of Clemens with the Yankees and Houston Astros, also was named in the Mitchell Report by McNamee, who said he injected the two-time All-Star with HGH on two occasions. Pettitte later admitted that he had used HGH twice while injured in 2002.
Pettitte also issued a statement hours prior to Wednesday’s hearing, admitting that he also used HGH in 2004. The lefthander spoke to committee lawyers under oath last week, providing a sworn deposition that coincided with many of McNamee’s claims.
McNamee said Andy Pettitte did it and Pettitte admits he did.
So with Clemens speaking against both Pettitte and McNamee, he’s claiming one guy “misheard” in Pettitte and what would be McNamee’s motive for saying things that have him standing in a congressional hearing? McNamee has nothing to gain from implicating Clemens.
I believe 2 witnesses over 1 who has everything to gain from lying.
McNamee saved materials used when injecting Clemens, but given those syringes were not kept under a tight police-style level of security. So it might not be admissible in court. Still, it shows McNamee is doing much to prove his claim. Also congress wanted to speak to Roger Clemens’ former nanny about this matter, but guess who got to her before she could be interviewed? Roger Clemens.
|Ex-teammates, former nanny may hurt Clemens
Now why would Roger Clemens need to meet with the nanny nobody could find, to tell her to “tell the truth” and “I wasn’t there”? Seems like he prepped her to me. Although Clemens claims he was doing his part to help the investigation. He should have told them where to find her and not met with her himself if he wanted to help. Obviously he knew how to reach her better than others.
Now I feel Clemens is guilty even without him being indicted, but I suspect I’ll have far less people complaining about me speaking about Roger Clemens, than those who were upset I spoke about Barry Bonds even after he was indicted. It’s just so amazing how the people who speak up for Barry will probably be silent or far less vigorous with defending Clemens and probably never speak in defense of someone like Lance Armstrong. I always felt Lance was up to no good too. Even Lance’s former friends say he was dirty. And what if steroids were the cause of Lance Armstrong’s cancer?
I would not mind if all the names I’ve mentioned joined Marion Jones behind bars. Of course Lance would have to do his time in a French prison 😛 .
It’s sad there are so many cheaters, but seeing selective outrage is always interesting too.
Knowing the Patriots have had a perfect season, me NOT being a Patriots fan and knowing how they were busted early in the season for stealing signals. This would normally lead me to claim the Patriots are just cheaters, who don’t deserve credit for a perfect season. Keep in mind, I am NOT an Patriots fan. I watched yesterday’s game hoping they would lose, while knowing they would probably win and they did win. I work hard to find ways to denounce them when such opportunities are available 😆 .
(I do appreciate the effort the NY Giants put forth to try and win though.)
However, I must give credit where it is honestly due. The New England Patriots have won every regular season game. I can’t harp about them ever stealing signals, because it appears THAT KIND OF CHEATING IS COMMON WITH ALL NFL TEAMS.
|Spy for a spy: Jets started video battle
With my last salvo to blast the Patriots with lost, I can only say to them, congratulations. I hope these teams stop cheating so much.
On a related note, the NFL was smart, to not hoard broadcasting of the game to their own network (the NFL Network).
And those were just the ones who were caught. Bottom line is that the UNION representing baseball players was able to stall and delay things for a very long time. On top of others in baseball not desiring to upset things too much. So while every sport has dope, baseball grew worse and worse. Now a total of 88 players, many household names have been exposed to be involved in dope.
Some people will never believe these guys are big time cheaters. Especially their favorites if named. I think we all felt John Rocker was on something. So for him to show up in the list was no surprise!
Barry Bonds’ name is all over the Mitchell report and while I contemplated putting quotes here from the report about him, it would take so many pages I decided not to. If you read some of the report though, you’ll see that Bonds and his trainer Gary Anderson were the reason lots of other players ended up using the same dope he’s been repeatedly accused of using.
Mitchell has recommended baseball not boot all the cheaters or try to discipline them all. Basically, all this work and Mitchell asks for amnesty.
From the Mitchell report:
I urge the Commissioner to forego imposing discipline on players for past violations of baseball’s rules on performance enhancing substances, including the players named in this report, except in those cases where he determines that the conduct is so serious that discipline is necessary to maintain the integrity of the game. I make this recommendation fully aware that there are valid arguments both for and against it; but I believe that those in favor are compelling.
Bud Selig, being spineless probably won’t come down very hard on anyone and has already provided his response.
So they’ve been exposed, but nobody will do much about it.
It would be fitting that NOBODY named in the report ever be inducted into the MLB Hall of Fame.
Well the sentencing is in:
|Suspended NFL star Michael Vick sentenced to 23 months in prison
Vick is contrite, he’s accepted his sentence and responsibility for his actions. While many football fans and Michael Vick’s family are saddened, we must remember the soul is more important than the body. Imagine if Michael Vick had lived what appeared to be an exemplary life to most, but never claimed Christ? In all that has happened to him, Michael Vick’s claim to know the Lord Jesus as his Lord and Savior may honestly be true. All that has transpired may have been God’s way of calling Michael Vick to the Only Begotten Son. Breaking him, humbling him and opening His heart to the message of salvation in Christ.
|John 6:44 (New American Standard Bible)
I can’t say I know Michael Vick’s heart, but the Lord knows. What I do know is that God did allow all that has transpired to take place, by His sovereign will and if Michael Vick is honestly now saved, all that looks bad will actually have the most happy and victorious ending. Because a football field does not matter. Money and earthly possessions do not matter. What matters is knowing the Lord Jesus Christ, God in flesh, God’s Son who existed with His Father before the foundation of the world. Knowing that he died for His sheep and His sheep are those who sincerely embrace Only Him as their hope for salvation.
