MLB and NFL misc.

First of all, an article about Rangers 1st baseman Mark Teixeira's (a Christian) consecutive games played streak coming to an end last Saturday:

Here's an article about Colts offensive tackle Tarik Glenn (a Christian) helping out rookie offensive lineman Tony Ugoh, who may possibly end up replacing Glenn in the future. Here's a quote from Glenn about it:

Glenn said the approach involves more than football. He said it’s more about life.

And because of that, he said he really sees no other way.

“A lot of it has to with my faith, and my values,” Glenn said. “What I believe got me here isn’t a self-centered, selfish mentality or way of thinking.

“It’s more, ‘Whatever you receive, you give that much more.’’’

Here's the article:

Next, an article about the one-year anniversary of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's near fatal motorcycle crash. Here's a quote from him about it:

"A lot of good things and some bad things (happened since last year), but I'm blessed, I truly am, to be out here," Roethlisberger said Tuesday. "It's a beautiful day to be on this football field with my teammates."

Here's the article:

Here's a note about a good thing that Cubs pitcher Will Ohman had to say to a fan at Wrigley Field:

Clarification: After Will Ohman was pulled from Tuesday's game, he appeared to be having an animated conversation of his own with a fan sitting behind the Cubs' dugout. However, Ohman did not yell at the fan, as reported. Ohman was upset that the man was using profanity in front of some kids sitting in the area, and was trying to get him to stop.

Here's the article:

Also, an article about the Colts Super Bowl ring ceremony. Here's a quote from Colts owner Jim Irsay:

There's the word "Faith" on one shank, or side, of the ring. Faith "gives you the strength to have the perseverance to move forward even after many disappointments," Irsay explained.

Here's the article:

By the way, to see video of the ring ceremony, go to and look on the right side of the screen near the top. I haven't watched it yet, but I'm going to when I get the chance. Here's the site:

Here's a link to the MLB Father's Day page:

Lastly, here's a link to Nothing But Nets, a group that raises money to buy insecticide-treated bed nets for $10 for families in Africa to prevent children from dying from malaria. One of the groups supporters is San Antonio Silver Stars Ruth Riley, a Christian. Here's the website:
