SORT BY Relevancy
The latest Seton Hall Sports Poll, which polled 771 Americans (by landline and cellphone across the nation), was unveilved on January 28, 2016. With the Super Bowl coming right as the presidential primary season “kicks off,” Americans said they were following the presidential contests by more than a 2-to-1 margin over football, with 60% choosing the political contests, and 24% the Super Bowl. 53% say the political races will be the most competitive, compared to 37% naming the Super Bowl.
The reasons for watching the Super Bowl are of course, varied. 40% said it was best explained because they were football fans, with 19% saying they were a fan of one of the participating teams, 18% saying it was a “big event,” and 10% interested in the commercials. Only 2% said it was primarily because they had a bet on the game, although in another question, 13% said they participated in wagering on the game.
Peyton Manning, whose name emerged recently as having been sent human growth hormones (the report was on Al Jazeera and was recanted by the source), was the subject of a question on whether that report changed opinions about him. (During the polling period, the NFL announced it would investigate the charges). A significant 11% said they thought “less favorably” of him, and 76% said it had no effect.
Pete Rose, who will be inducted in the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame this year, was the subject of two questions, the first asking whether that was appropriate - to which 47% said yes, 33% no. The second asked if he should be eligible to be elected to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, to which 56% said yes, 28% no.
The Seton Hall Sports Poll has been conducted regularly since 2006.

We all have memories of Ken Griffey Jr. — the swing (oh, that swing), the over-the-wall-catches, the back-to-back home runs with his father and the dogpile at the Kingdome.
Mine is different. Much different.
When I think of Ken Griffey Jr., I think of a nearly empty clubhouse in Sarasota, Fla., in the spring of 2008. It was just two people, one of whom happened to be headed to the Hall of Fame and the other was me.The Hall of Fame is comprised of 310 elected members. Included are 215 former major league players, 28 executives, 35 Negro leaguers, 22 managers and 10 umpires. The Baseball Writers’ Association of America has elected 119 candidates to the Hall while the Committees on managers, umpires, executives and long-retired players (in all of its forms) has chosen 165 deserving candidates (96 major leaguers, 28 executives, 22 managers, nine Negro Leaguers and 10 umpires). The defunct “Committee on Negro Baseball Leagues” selected nine men between 1971-77 and the Special Committee on Negro Leagues in 2006, elected 17 Negro Leaguers. There are currently 70 living members. By position, there are: 77 pitchers, 16 catchers, 21 first basemen, 21 second basemen, 16 third basemen, 24 shortstops, 21 left fielders, 23 center fielders, 24 right fielders, 1 designated hitter, 23 managers, 10 umpires and 33 executives.
Hi, I am Pastor Steve Hall. I am the Pastor of the Johnston Church of God. A small church in Johnston SC with a very BIG heart for GOD and His people. Also the co owner of WUCC 99.9 F.M. in Williston SC. a Christian radio station reaching 1.5 million potential listeners. I have over 20 years in pastoral ministry however my greatest work for God has yet to be completed. Our church has a outreach ministry in Peru where I have been on 2 missions' trips and plan on going back in August 2016. My new assignment from God started in January 2016. My Father has called me and the Johnston church to fight against the Jezebel spirit including all of her many demons.
My Grandpa Hall would say " I can't but WE CAN" so let the Saints join Together and let us bring down Jezebel.
Pastor Steve Hall
