Dungy, and MLB and basketball misc.

First of all, I mentioned Colts head coach Tony Dungy's (a Chrisitan) blog before, but that was before I had read any of his posts. After having read them, his blog is a must read. They're great, and give some idea of his day-to-day life. Recently, he's been tellling about his travels on his book tour for his Christian book Quiet Strength. It's a Christian blog too, where he sometimes tells about his faith too. Here's the blog page:

Also about Dungy, he was on Focus on the Family last week, Wednesday through Friday. I missed it, but I found that the show is available to buy on audio CD for a $9 donation. Here's more information on the CD: For more information about the broadcasts, go here:

Here's another article about Orioles 2nd baseman Brian Roberts, a Christian, and the charity work that he does in Baltimore:

Next, a Christian article on 76ers forward Kyle Korver:

Here's a great article about former MLB player and current minor league manager Brett Butler, a Christian. He's currently the manager for the Mobile BayBears, the Double-A team for the Diamondbacks. Here's some quotes about/from Butler:

Brett Butler has shared a bunker with some of baseball's most, shall we say spicy, elocutionists. Bobby Cox and Tommy Lasorda are two of the notable managers on that list.

But in some important ways, Butler is a manager of his own making. His production carries a hard PG rating.

We take you to an evening early in Butler's latest assignment, shepherding the Class AA Mobile BayBears of the Southern League.

"There was a point he got into an argument with the umpire and he was really going off," begins BayBears team president and part owner Bill Shanahan.

"I called up [to the press box] on the walkie-talkie and told them to turn off the music. Turn off everything. I knew he wasn't going to swear, and I wanted to hear what was going on.

"Another manager in the past, I would have turned the music up."

"I'm 50 years old and I've never really had a real job," he said. "I had a job in college and things like that, but all my life, I'm a baseball player. There are three things I love: I love the Lord, I love my family and I love baseball." ...

"God runs my life. If I'm supposed to manage in the big leagues, I will. If I'm not, then He's got another purpose for me. Right now, I'm the Double A manager. All I'm trying to do is get as many kids as I can to the big leagues." And one 50-year-old, too, in the process.

Here's the article:

Lastly, an article about Fever forward Tamika Catchings, a Christian, and her season so far at the WBNA midpoint and her prospects of getting the MVP award:
