trying to get things right.I apologize to the people of B from XF's blog

Jenson Button said his opening day of practice at Silverstone was hampered by number crunching with Hondas new power unit. Cameron Sutton Jersey .While teammate Fernando Alonso finished a promising sixth position in FP2, Button managed just 20 laps in the afternoon after a number of issues.When asked if McLarens pace was unexpected on day one, he replied: I think Fernandos is a bit more unexpected in P6! For me I did a lap on the prime tyre at the start of the session and we had a problem, sat in the garage for half an hour, went out and did another lap, had another problem and sat back in the garage for a little while.Eventually got back out on the soft right at the end and did a lap on low fuel but we did no set-up work or anything. But still to be P9 is a little bit strange but Im sure tomorrow well be put back in our place. The suns come out - whats happened to the traditional British weather that we need!Asked if he could feel a big improvement with Hondas upgrade, he said: Its never going to be 50 kilowatts, its never going to be a massive amount from circuit to circuit. Silverstone is a very different circuit to Austria, its very windy out there so youre controlled by all the different conditions. But hopefully they can see something in the data.Button does not think the power unit issues which limited his running are cause for major concern but rather a case of McLaren being ultra cautious.We had a few issues to do with the power unit. Its nothing thats an issue long term, its just number crunching on the laptop. So I missed some of the session - a hell of a lot of the session - and set up work we didnt do.Sitting in the garage all day is something we havent done for a long time. Number issues in the engine, we have some new things at this race and were just making sure theyre OK before we run them.The 2009 world champion is staying realistic about McLarens prospects on Saturday.I think qualifying is still going to be difficult to get into the top ten. Nico [Rosberg] didnt run, the Force Indias didnt run soft tyres, the Williams will be quick. Its going to be tricky but if we get a clear morning it could be an alright day. James Conner Youth Jersey . A lawyer for MLB, Matthew Menchel, confirmed Wednesday the league dropped its case against Biogenesis of America, its owner Anthony Bosch and several other individuals. The lawsuit had accused Biogenesis and Bosch of conspiring with players to violate their contracts by providing them with banned performance-enhancing substances. JuJu Smith-Schuster Steelers Jersey . One game after a miserable showing in Oklahoma City, Gay tied a career high with 41 points and the Sacramento Kings cruised to a 114-97 victory at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. . The Olympic champion curler and TSN curling analyst immediately went online to look at the Halls long list of honoured members. Thats when the enormity of the honour sunk in. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Andrew Bogut wanted one more shot to represent Australia at the Olympics and wasnt going to let an injury take that away again.The No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 NBA draft tumbled to the floor with a hyperextended knee in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, and no one really expected him to get up this summer.But here he is in Rio, making a nearly perfect debut.The injury looked bad, and not to mention played a significant role in the Golden State Warriors losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers after setting the NBA regular-season record at 73 wins.But the new Dallas Maverick looked fully recovered, scoring 18 points on 9 for 10 shooting in Australias 87-66 win over France on Saturday. He played his usual complete game, pulling four rebounds to go with five assists.Bogut said after the injury, his plans were still to play in the Olympics, there was just the matter of how the knee felt. There was extra motivation after missing the 2012 London Games with an ankle injury and dealing with back spasms during a regional Olympic qualifier in 2015. The 31-year old may not get another chance to play on this stage.He said he was upset about missing it, adding that would have been my (third) if I played in that one. Bogut said. I was like, I dont want it to end that way where Im just sitting at home with ice on my knee if I can give it a crack.I didnt want it taken away that easily. I said Ill give it a crack up until this day. If it wasnt right yesterday, Id put my hand up and Im on a flight back home.Bogut wasnt just a body trudging up and down the court on Saturday.He caught six alley-oops despite playing a France team with Utah Jazz 7-foot-1 center and defensive specialist Rudy Gobert. Bogut had previously played sparingly against China and Spain in exhibitions since the NBA Finals.I felt good, I kind of was surprised that I did, Bogut said. The alley-oops were not something we specifically targeted. ... When youve got smart guys like (Matthew Dellavedova) and Patty (Mills) handling the ball, you get a couple of easy baskets.Bogut may not have expected to play so well, but some members of the team were surprised hes even in Rio. Assistant coach Luc Longley thought he was done wheen Bogut went down in the NBA playoffs. Cameron Sutton Womens Jersey. I do know hes a tough hombre, Longley said. We had him New Zealand last year with a really, really bad back and he managed to get himself up and play and play well and dominant. If somebody is going to get it done, hes the character who is going to find a way to play.This is about the early timeline Bogut was expected to return. Hes not wearing a brace, but has the knee taped and wrapped under layers of padding -- enough to allow him to run, but also keep the pain to a minimum. There was some concern the Mavs would ask him to sit out after being traded from the Warriors, but the team was open to it long as the knee was healthy.Its been mentally and physically tolling to try and make this, Bogut said. I didnt think I was going to make it early on. And then the further and further I got I said Ive got a chance, Ive got a chance. It went from 10 percent chance to 20 percent chance and there were some dark days, but I ended up rehabbing fine and got back.Teammate Joe Ingles added, He promised us he was going to do everything he could and you saw tonight he obviously did.It was a big win for an Australian team that has never medaled in the Olympics. This may be their best team in international play with five NBA players and France was considered by many to be the second-best team in the tournament. The Frenchmen also had five NBA players on the roster.Boguts Olympics got off to a rocky start after he complained about the lodging conditions on social media, but apparently things have gotten better.The comments were never to disparage Brazil or the people in Brazil, Bogut said. It was more with the IOC more than anybody. The Brazilians have done a fantastic job of sending people to our room daily to see if anything needs fixing. Theyre trying to get things right.I apologize to the people of Brazil. I never intended that to be a shot at them. It was more a shot at the IOC to get out of the penthouse suites and get things rolling a little bit better.---AP Sports Writer Tom Withers contributed to this report Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
