Hello. I still have extra time because of the weather, so I'll post again. I'm trying something different with posting through (, so I'm going to see how that works. I'm hoping that doing it that way will be less time consuming for me. I'll see how it works and let me know what you think. Thanks.

I only have a few articles today, but I thought that I would go ahead and post anyways. The first article is about Pacers guard Jamaal Tinsley hosting a coat drive to collect coats for needy people:

Here's an article about new Redskins head coach Jim Zorn, a Christian, and the kind of person that he is. Zorn is replacing retired Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs, also a Christian. Interviewed for the article were Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and 49ers quarterback Trent Dilfer, both also Christians who worked under Zorn at his former job as Seahawks quarterbacks coach. Here's a couple of quotes about Zorn:

In the Washington Redskins' seemingly interminable search to find the replacement for Joe Gibbs, they may well have found, well, another Joe Gibbs. Just like his predecessor, Zorn — born in the Los Angeles suburb of Whittier — was a college quarterback in Southern California (Cal-Poly Pomona), became deeply religious and possesses an innate ability to stay calm through chaos. Like Gibbs, he is a family man. He and his wife Joy have four children, and in Seattle they would do things as a group when they had time — even something as mundane as a shopping trip to an outdoors sporting goods store. ...

"He's very much like a Joe Gibbs," said Trent Dilfer, who played under Zorn for four seasons in Seattle. "He's wise beyond his years. His faith is at the front of his life. And he's aware of the global perspective. I think what happens in the course of a football season when you are not one of the top-echelon teams — one of the top five or six teams — and you are in a fight to try and make the playoffs, one of the biggest things the head coach needs is to create a calmness about the team. What Gibbs and the best coaches can do is put things in perspective for the football team. That's what he was able to do as a quarterback coach."When there are team dramas, there will be a lot of dialogue there between players and coach. He will handle those dramas."

Next a good article in the New York Times about Giants wide receiver David Tyree, a Christian, and what he overcame in his personal life to become an outspoken Christian and one of the Giants Super Bowl heroes: Here's a quote from the transcript from the interview that the article is from, which is even better:

NYT: Do you think back often to your story?

DT: What has occurred now has forced me to. I’m praying that I get the opportunity to do a book. It’s more than just a feel-good story. It’s not about David Tyree. It’s bigger than this Super Bowl catch. It’s about destiny and purpose for one person’s life. It’s about one man’s willingness to submit to a Holy God. From the moment I’ve done that, my life has been filled with miracles. When you talk about the restoration of my family. I’ve been to a Pro Bowl. Been to a Super Bowl. Won a world championship. Have beautiful identical twin girls on the way, a family of four.

Lastly, a good article about former Royal and new A's 1st baseman/DH Mike Sweeney, a Christian, and how much his former Royals teammates are going to miss his leadership with the team as team captain:
