Kudos to Morgan Shepherd who qualified in the 21st slot for Saturday’s Nationwide Series race and finished 34th. Anyone who’s not familiar with Shepherd, put him in the little search thingy! We’re big fans here and glad to see his season righting itself. This Racin’ Today story gives background on his program, but doesn’t get into his faith. He’s now on Facebook and Twitter. Despite a litany of on-track challenges, his off-track ministry is flourishing.
I am Second
The website, www.IamSecond.com, have posted several new testimonies from college football quarterbacks and rivals Colt McCoy and Sam Bradford, to go alongwith older videos from NASCAR announcer Darrell Waltrip, baseball feel-good story Josh Hamilton, Dallas Cowboy Jason Witten and former NFL coach and NASCAR team owner Joe Gibbs.
The former Sports Illustrated, now ESPN.com writer turns out some real gems. Here’s a couple of my favorites that involve faith in some way, shape or form. This is a GREAT, and revealing, piece on Texas quarterback Colt McCoy. The UT signal caller isn’t shy about sharing his faith but didn’t know him and Tebow weren’t big fans of each other. Thanks that make you go hmmmm… Then, there is this video on John Wooden, who was turning 99-years-old and recalled the last time “he used a profanity.” New Orleans point guard Chris Paul will share his story with Reilly on his intermittent show, Homecoming, in the near future where he’ll probably talk about his new book.
Saw golfer John Daly on the sidelines at the Arkansas-Ole Miss game. He has dropped a lot of weight.
