    The "Atlanta Hearts": How the Hawks can overcome the Cavs and the NBA System

    in Sports

    Join me tonight for a special episode of The Dirty Word as we discuss the Eastern Conference Finals series between the Hawks and Cavs. 


    After a very controversial ejection of Al Horford, the Hawks are on the brink of elimination Tuesday night as the Cavs lead the series3-0. Despite being down in the series, many Hawks fans AND national pundits believe that dirty play and tactics have contributed to the Cavs success in this series.


    We will talk about the Horford/Dellavadova incident and take a deep dive into the "gutsy" play of the Aussie point guard.


    Is he crossing the line and when will Atlanta seek true retribution against he and the Cavs. 


    I will also give a step by step process on how the Hawks can defy all odds and win this series, even overcoming shady officiating. 


    Stay tuned tonight at 11:30 and keep it locked! Calls are welcome!

    Blackhawks vs Ducks Preview, Do Or Die Time for Bulls After Strange Game 5

    in Sports

    The Chicago Blackhawks will open up their series against the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday.  The winner of this series will earn a spot in the Stanley Cup Finals.  The two teams have never met in the playoffs before, so what should fans be looking for as the keys to this series?  While the Hawks are well rested and already in to their conference finals series, the Bulls will try to stave off elimination tonight in Game 6 versus the Cleveland Cavaliers.  There was more offensive droughts for the Bulls in Game 5, but they also were victims of some very questionable officiating.  Joey Crawford continued his love affair with Lebron's teams in the playoffs.  Fair or foul?  After missing Games 4 & 5 due to a hamstring injury, Pau Gasol is expected to play tonight.  Can he provide enough offense to lead the Bulls to a victory and winner-take-all Game 7?  All this plus your phone calls at (347) 327-9183.

    in Christianity

    2. A Shiite rebel leader in Yemen vowed to not surrender amid Saudi-led airstrikes in a rambling speech that rejected U.N. efforts to halt violence there, even as the political party of the country’s former leader welcomed international efforts for a cease-fire.


    3. A tsunami as big as one metre was forecast to hit the Okinawa island chain after a 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck far-southern Japan. 


    4. The first French weapons from a $3 billion Saudi-funded program will arrived in Lebanon on Monday as allies seek to bolster the country’s defenses against the Islamic State group and other jihadists pressing along its Syrian border. 


    5. A senior commander in Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said on Sunday that international nuclear inspectors will be barred from all Iranian military sites under any deal with world powers, setting up a possible standoff as negotiators try to reach a final deal.

    The prophetic passage of Scripture we are looking at today is Joshua 10:7-10 which reads: "So Joshua ascended from Gilgal, he, and all the people of war with him, and all the mighty men of valour. And the Lord said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee. Joshua therefore came unto them suddenly, and went up from Gilgal all night. And the Lord discomfited them before Israel, and slew them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, and chased them along the way that goeth up to Bethhoron, and smote them to Azekah, and unto Makkedah.”

    in Books

    When a routine 911 call turns deadly, Paramedic Sara Dyer finds herself held at gunpoint by Jason Keegan, an injured psych-ward patient charged with murder. The situation spirals out of Sara’s control when the confrontation becomes a tense standoff between Keegan and the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.


    As Keegan’s hostage, Sara fights to save them both before he blows them up. She realizes his warning to the Cayman police is no empty threat since he’d rather die than spend the rest of his life in a prison cell. Sara soon discovers Keegan is just as determined to survive as she is - provided he can escape Grand Cayman and disappear forever. As she struggles to trust in God’s protection, help from an atheist turns her struggle into a lure away from her faith.
