Hours later, the Union announced that Pappas contract had been terminated. The pharmaceutical salesman admitted he was recruited by a marketing company that was paid by pharmacies to refer people whose insurance paid for compounded medication including pain creams, scar creams and vitamins.Pappas admitted that he recruited others to join the scheme, including people using a health benefit program for service members and their families managed by the U.S. Department of Defense. He admitted that he attempted to recruit beneficiaries from TRICARE because they gave high reimbursements for compounded medication and cream, federal prosecutors said.Prosecutors said that while he received $481,773 from the marketing company, his employer, TRICARE and other insurance companies lost at least $3.69 million. Pappas faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he is sentenced on Oct. 25.The former goalkeeper on the defunct Philadelphia Kixx indoor soccer team has been the Unions TV analyst since 2014.

But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. MIAMI -- Richie Incognito says Jonathan Martin reached out to him several times in the aftermath of the bullying scandal that sabotaged the Miami Dolphins 2013 season, but Incognito has no interest in talking.The two were teammates on the Dolphins offensive line and at the center of the scandal.Incognito is now a guard for the Buffalo Bills, who play the Dolphins on Sunday. In a conference call on Wednesday with the South Florida media, Incognito said he has kept in touch with Dolphins players and Joe Philbin, who was their coach then.But he never patched up differences with Martin, once a close friend.Zero conversation with Jonathan Martin, Incognito said. He has reached out and tried to speak a few times, but I have nothing to say.Martin retired last year. He posted on Facebook that difficulties in the profession led him to attempt suicide multiple times.An NFL investigation found that Incognito and two teammates engaged in perssistent harassment directed at Martin, who left the team midseason in 2013. Adidas Originals Nmd Xr1 Black. . Incognito was suspended for the final eight games and sat out the 2014 season before joining the Bills.Incognito described the situation with the Dolphins as surreal and a circus.The whole incident went down [and] Im a pariah in the national media and basically turned radioactive there for a few months, he said. Jonathan and I were close friends. I cared about him. If anybody was there for Jonathan, it was me. And Jonathan had his troubles. He had his demons, like we all do. He left for whatever reason and he handled it the way he did, and then really the story kind of takes on a life of its own.As for Incognitos role in the scandal?Im not saying I was a saint, he said, but I sleep well at night knowing what I did. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
Another Rugby Championship in the books, the All Blacks have set their sights on the all-time Tier 1 Test winning streak of 18 matches -- assignment No. Art Monk Jersey .16 set down for Buenos Aires. With Argentina opting to take their encounter against the Wallabies to London next week, this Test against the All Blacks is the Pumas last on home soil for 2016.The Portenos will hopefully get themselves to Estadio Jose Amalfitani in their droves, given what the Pumas produced against the world champions in Hamilton a few weeks ago. For 50 minutes, Argentina put the All Blacks under all sorts of pressure; but the Pumas lacked the finishing expertise to really hurt New Zealand where it matters -- the scoreboard. They were then largely disappointing against a struggling Wallabies outfit a week later, failing to recover after shipping three early tries.Conversely, the All Blacks were back to their best against the Springboks after more than just a few uncomfortable moments in Hamilton a week prior. The six-tries-to-one hammering was the sixth occasion on which New Zealand have scored at least 35 points this season - and its unlikely to be the last.Team newsArgentina?The Pumas have made an interesting call at captain, with Martin Landajo returning to take over from Agustin Creevy after the half-back was recalled ahead of Tomas Cubelli. There are two further changes, one each to the forwards and backs, with Guido Petti returning at lock and Ramiro Moyano earning a start on the left wing.?Joaquin Tuculet, Santiago Cordero, Matias Moroni, Santiago Gonzalez Iglesias, Ramiro Moyano, Nicolas Sanchez, Martin Landajo (captain), Facundo Isa, Javier Ortego Desio, Pablo Matera, Matias Alemanno, Guido Petti, Ramiro Herrera, Agustin Creevy, Nahuel Telaz Chaparro. Replacements: Julian Montoya, Lucas Noguera, Enrique Pieretto, Juan Manuel Leguizamon, Leonardo Senatore, Tomas Cubelli, Jeronimo De la Fuente, Matias Orlando.New ZealandAll Blacks coach Steve Hansen has opted for a few fresh faces in Argentina, with only one forced by injury. That comes at No.6 where Liam Squire gets a chance for Jerome Kaino, the Blues skipper sitting out with a shoulder injury in a bid to be fit for next weeks trip to Durban. The other change up front comes at lock where Patrick Tuipoluto slots in for Sam Whitelock. In the backs, Aaron Smith has been given the week off with TJ Perenara starting at No.9 while Anton Lienert-Brown will wear the No.13 jersey in place of Malakai Fekitoa. There are a further five changes to the bench, the biggest of which could see Damian McKenzie win his first Test cap.Ben Smith, Israel Dagg, Anton Lienert-Brown, Ryan Crotty, Julian Savea, Beauden Barrett, TJ Perenara; Kieran Read, Ardie Savea, Liam Squire, Brodie Retallick, Patrick Tuipulotu, Owen Franks, Dane Coles, Joe Moody. Replacements: Codie Taylor, Wyatt Crockett, Ofa Tuungafasi, Sam Whitelock, Elliot Dixon, Tawera Kerr-Barlow, Lima Sopoaga, Damian McKenzieKey matchup: Pablo Matera vs. Liam SquireMatera was one of the Pumas better performers in Perth a fortnight ago, the back-rower making an equal match-high 15 runs in a busy performance at nib Stadium. He was similarly impressive a week prior in Hamilton, adding plenty of punch to a loose-forward trio that also features rising star Facundo Isa. Back on home soil, Matera must replicate those twin efforts if the Pumas are to be any chance of a first ever win over the All Blacks.Squire, meanwhile, is enjoying quite the season. Having moved from the Chiefs to the Highlanders at the start of the year, Squire proved himself to be one of the buys of the Super Rugby season as the southerners came within one game of the final. A ball-running No.6 in a similar mould to Jerome Kaino, the man he replaces, Squire will be making his first start after two appearances off the bench.Key stats (Opta Stats)- New Zealand have won their last 21 games against the Pumas, their only blemish in 27 previous encounters being a 21-21 draw in November 1985.- New Zealand have scored a joint record 24 tries in this tournament (also 24 in 2013), one more and they will hold the standalone record for most tries in a Rugby Championship/Tri Nations campaign.- Just two players have made over 250 metres with ball in hand in The Rugby Championship this year: Ben Smith (257) and Facundo Isa (251).WeatherIts nothing but sunshine for Buenos Aires on Saturday with the mercury set to reach a top of 19 degrees. The hard, fast track should make for some exciting running rugby.UBET verdict: Argentina $8.50, New Zealand $1.07.New Zealand will be popular through multis this weekend, but their prohibitive $1.07 price will rule out most rank and file rugby punters. A line bet will be the trick and, judging by the early betting indicators, the world champions will be heavily tried to cover the 18.5 handicap.VerdictAll Blacks coach Steve Hansen has done well to build the world champions players base, and he gets the chance to see just where some of those future stars are at this weekend. Crucially, Hansen has maintained the key cogs of this years scintillating form in Dane Coles, Brodie Retallick, skipper Kieran Read, and backs Beauden Barrett and Ben Smith, which should see the new faces slot in seamlessly. The Pumas will be better at home but their failure to turn long periods of possession and territory into points has become more than just a passing concern.All Blacks by 17. Brian Quick Jersey . The Brazilian goalkeeper signed a loan deal with the Major League Soccer club on Friday as he looks to get playing time ahead of this summers World Cup in his home country. Charles Mann Jersey . Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0. Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout. . That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. Indiana Preview CapsuleBy The Associated Press=IndianaLast season: 27-8, won Big Ten regular season title, lost to North Carolina in NCAA Tournament regional semifinals.Nickname: Hoosiers.Coach: Tom Crean.Conference: Big Ten.Whos gone: G Kevin Yogi Ferrell, F Troy Williams, F Max Bielfeldt, G Nick Zeisloft.Whos back: C Thomas Bryant and F OG Anunoby were so impressive as freshmen some thought they should head straight to the NBA. G James Blackmon Jr. also tested the NBA waters despite missing the second half of last season after having knee surgery. G Robert Johnson may be the most crucial player on this seasons team because of his leadership skills, but he had offseason ankle surgery.Whos new: Former Pittsburgh G Josh Newkirk is expected to play a significant role after sitting out last season because of the NCAA trannsfer rules. Phil Taylor Jersey. F Freddie McSwain Jr., a junior college transfer, could provide another athletic interior presence after averaging a double-double last season. The two freshmen most likely to help immediately will be G Curtis Jones and 6-10 forward DeRon Davis.The Skinny: Indiana has plenty of athletes, lots of scoring punch and even the knowledge of what it takes to win a conference title. But Crean still must find a replacement for Ferrell and wont have a senior to lean on until F Collin Hartman returns after injuring his knee last month.

Back in 2000, we saw what could very reasonably be called the greatest month of September by a player in the history of the sport. Patrice Bergeron Jersey . Since 1913, there have been only five seasons where a player hit at least 10 home runs, drove in at least 20 runs, and hit over .400 from September 1 until the end of the season.Four of those names are among the greatest to ever play the game: Rogers Hornsby (1922), Joe DiMaggio (1948), Stan Musial (1953) and Barry Bonds, who would accomplish the feat the following season, in 2001. However, the fifth member of this elite club caught lightning in a bottle in 2000, culminating in a last month of the season for the ages: a .477 batting average, 1.486 OPS, 11 HR, 32 RBI and, for good measure, five stolen bases. Chris Kunitz Jersey . LOUIS -- Roman Polak was celebrating even before Alexander Steen scored the winning goal in Saturdays 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Brad Marchand Jersey . "It was nerve-wracking, but we pulled through," said Collaros, who threw four touchdown passes to lead the Toronto Argonauts (8-4) to a 33-27 win over the Calgary Stampeders (9-3) in front of 28,781 fans at McMahon Stadium. .875,000, avoiding arbitration. Clippards deal Monday means all eight Nationals players who filed for arbitration wound up settling before a hearing. TORONTO -- Trevor Bauer and his injured finger couldnt make it through the first inning Monday night. That means Corey Kluber is expected back on the mound for Cleveland a day earlier than planned.Bauer was removed from Game 3 of the AL Championship Series on Monday night after blood began dripping from his right pinkie. The right-hander had been pushed back two days to Game 3 because he cut the finger on a drone last week. He received stitches, but with two on and two out in the first inning against Toronto, there was already blood on his hand and coming out of his finger.Bauer shook his head in disappointment while being tended to on the mound, and he was replaced by Dan Otero after 21 pitches.Bauers early exit meant Kluber is expected to pitch Game 4 on short rest for Cleveland. Manager Terry Francona had said that was his plan if Bauers finger acted up.Francona said before Mondays game that rookie left-hander Ryan Merritt would start Game 4 if everything went OK with Bauer. Then the Indians would keep the rest of their pitchers on normal rest, with Bauer in line for a potential Game 7.But Francona also left open the possibility that Bauers finger wouldnt hold up.If something happens with Bauer and we have a little bit of a malfunction in his finger ... then we would bring Kluber baack (Tuesday), and then Merritt would pitch the next day, Francona said. Joe Thornton Jersey. Then that would allow Kluber to pitch a Game 7 if need be.Kluber pitched 6 1/3 scoreless innings in Game 1 on Friday.Cleveland entered with a 2-0 series lead, but the Indians have been battling rotation injuries. Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar arent on the ALCS roster, and Bauers problem left Francona in another tough spot.Merritts major league resume consists of 11 innings in the regular season this year. He made one start, holding Kansas City to a run and three hits in five innings Sept. 30.Its awesome that they trust me, the 24-year-old Merritt said. Im just going to go out there and have fun, enjoy it, and try to give my team the best chance to win.Salazar, who is not on the ALCS roster because of forearm issues, threw to hitters on the field at the end of Clevelands workout Sunday.Were not ready to activate him but he is doing much, much better, Francona said. Like we said before, the first goal was to get him completely healthy, and then when that happens well see where and if it leads to him helping us in a game.---Follow Noah Trister at 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 ' ' '
Match factsOct 29-Nov 2, 2016, Harare Start time 9. NaVorro Bowman Jersey .30 am (0730 GMT)Big pictureThe last time Sri Lanka played Tests against Zimbabwe was in 2004, when Marvan Atapattu was in his first full series as captain. Kumar Sangakkara made 270 in that Bulawayo Test, his second double-hundred. Between then and now Sangakkara improved his high score twice and retired with only one less double-hundred than Don Bradmans twelve. No Sri Lankans from that tour are on this one.Elton Chigumbura and Tinashe Panyangara made their debuts during that series and remain Zimbabwes only active cricketers from that tour. Unlike several of those Sri Lankans, who had storied careers, Chigumbura played only 14 Tests and Panyangara nine. The Harare Test beginning this Saturday will only be Zimbabwes 25th since then, and neither player will feature in it.Between 2004 and 2016, cricket in Zimbabwe has suffered because of the boards financial trouble and a talent exodus as players and coaches sought better opportunities with other teams. Both issues fed off each other.There is a sense of optimism now, though. Heath Streak, one of Zimbabwes finest cricketers, is back - this time as coach - and has a plan that puts players first. With Tatenda Taibu, who is now a selector and development officer, Streak aims to create a structure that nurtures budding cricketers. And thats whom this match will be about for Zimbabwe.Their next Test series is a return tour to Sri Lanka in June 2017, but Streak has vowed to have plenty of cricket before then, which might mean these fixtures are not make or break for players like the uncapped youngsters Tarisai Musakanda and Carl Mumba, and the returning Malcolm Waller, who hasnt played a Test since 2014. That breathing space could facilitate a positive approach from Zimbabwe instead of being wary of embarrassment, a theme that had crept into their cricket according to Streak.Sri Lanka have a young side of their own. A combination of injuries and player management issues have deprived them of their captain Angelo Mathews, vice-captain Dinesh Chandimal, and fast bowlers Dhammika Prasad, Nuwan Pradeep and Dushmantha Chameera. However, the stand-in captain Rangana Herath was not worried, especially after the recent 3-0 whitewash of Australia.Herath, at the age of 38, was at the forefront of that victory with 28 wickets, and he was supported by fellow spinners Dilruwan Perera and Lakshan Sandakan. However, Sri Lanka were able to play three spinners because Mathews provided a medium-pace option, which they will now be without. Their batting is also inexperienced, with only Dimuth Karunaratne and Upul Tharanga, a late inclusion in the squad, having played more than five away Tests.Heraths story of leading Sri Lanka for the first time 17 years after making his debut adds to the significance of this fixture. It is also Zimbabwes 100th Test, and they will hope to end their winless record against Sri Lanka.Form guideZimbabwe LLLLL (completed matches, most recent first) Sri LankaWWWDLIn the spotlightBrian Chari and Peter Moor scored centuries in the games against Pakistan A earlier this month. Its likely they will feature in this game to strengthen the Zimbabwe batting. Malcom Waller will also be hoping to claim his spot after returning to the Test squad; he made four fifties across formats against Pakistan A recently.Sri Lanka have persisted with Dimuth Karunaratne, despite the general feeling back home that he doesnt belong at the highest level. Hes coming off a series against West Indies A in which he made 131, 39 not out, 68 and 3. As the most senior batsman in this side, he has a point to prove, especially with eight of his 12 most recent Test innings ending in single digits.Team newsZimbabwes strength is their batting. Hamilton Masakadza, Sean Williams and Craig Ervine will form the core, and Peter Moor is certain to play. Moor has occasional back issues, and Regis Chakabva keeping wicket could mean no place in the team for Sikandar Raza. Carl Mumba is likely to make debut, but Musakanda might have to wait.Zimbabwe (probable) 1 Tino Mawoyo, 2 Brian Chari, 3 Hamilton Masakadza, 4 Craig Ervine, 5 Sean Williams, 6 Peter Moor, 7 Regis Chakabva/Sikandar Raza, 8 Graeme Cremer, 9 Donald Tiripano, 10 Carl Mumba, 11 Chris MpofuUpul Tharanga and the uncapped Asela Gunaratne are likely to replace Mathews and Chandimal in Sri Lankas line-up. Teenage fast bowler Lahiru Kumara could also make a debut depending on Sri Lankas combination.Sri Lanka (probable): 1 Kaushal Silva, 2 Dimuth Karunaratne, 3 Kusal Perera, 4 Kusal Mendis, 5 Upul Tharanga, 6 Niroshan Dickwella, 7 Dananjaya de Silva, 8 Dilruwan Perera, 9 Rangana Herath, 10 Suranga Lakmal, 11 Lahiru GamagePitch and conditionsThe pitch looked like a typical Harare Sports Club surface, with a consistent layer of grass that should hold the surface together over five days without offering huge assistance to the seamers. October is the hottest month in Zimbabwe and no rain is forecast.Stats and triviaAll of Zimbabwes 11 Test wins have come against subcontinent teams, but have never beaten Sri Lanka in 15 encountersHerath needs 24 wickets to pass Chaminda Vaas 355 and become Sri Lankas second highest wicket-takerHamilton Masakadza needs 269 more to become the fifth Zimbabwean to score 2000 runs. He needs 259 to overtake Heath Streak, who has 1990 runs.QuotesWere still the underdogs, but with them having a few debutants and missing Angelo Mathews - who gives them a lot of balance and is a serious player - they will be weaker by their standards.Zimbabwe head coach Heath StreakWe learnt a little bit from playing Australia, when they came as the No 1 Test nation and we were well down the rankings list, yet we were able to outplay them. So I dont think you can look at an opposition in Test cricket and think it will be an easy ride. Zimbabwe have played quite a bit of good cricket recently so theyre sharp and have probably worked out their best combinations, so were expecting them to be a really good team.Sri Lanka coach Graham Ford Fred Biletnikoff Jersey . Then the Pacers gave Oladipo and his Orlando teammates the cold shoulder. Paul Georges buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter spurred a 21-4 run, finally sending Indiana past the Magic 97-87 in a tougher-than-expected opening night matchup. Ted Hendricks Jersey .  The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. In that time, hes recorded 17 goals and 17 assists with 36 penalty minutes. . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead.

SILVERSTONE, Great Britain -- Honda says the results from the first day of running its engine upgrade were surprisingly encouraging as both McLarens finished Friday practice at the British Grand Prix in the top ten. Adidas NMD R1 Donna .Honda spent two engine tokens on updating the intake system on its internal combustion engine in the pursuit of greater efficiency and performance. Honda boss Yusuke Hasegawa said it was hard to gain a full understanding of the progress brought by the update, but that the end result was better than expected.Silverstone is a track that tests all aspects of the car, therefore it is still too early to confirm if our engine update has taken full effect, Hasegawa said. Both Fernando and Jenson struggled with the gusty winds and the low grip track, which destabilised the cars and made them difficult to drive.However, even though Jenson was limited in FP2 running due to engine data issues, our days results were surprisingly encouraging, and we think we are heading in the right direction overall.Not surprisingly, we are expecting a rainy Saturday and Sunday, but we are hoping that we can reach Q3 without relying on changing conditions as we did at the Austrian GPFernando Alonso added: Its difficult to understand the effect of upgraded engine because we couldnt test it back to back with the old one, on a different track, but Im sure Honda will now be looking at the numbers and will confirm theres more power now than before. Superstar Supercolor Pack . The 28-year-old from Calgary matched his career best after missing just one shot in his two rounds of shooting in the mens 10-kilometre sprint competition. Smith finished in 23 minutes 15. Adidas Superstar Donna . JOHNS, N. . They were putting most of their energy into a record-setting offensive display. Fast bowlers use the short ball as a legitimate weapon to unsettle any batsman. It is a fair and reasonable tactic that has stood the test of time.On that terrible day at the SCG in November 2014, Phillip Hughes appeared to misjudge the pace of the ball and looked to be through his hook shot before he was struck in the neck, clear of the protective face of the helmet.It was a shocking, freak accident and, especially for Phils family and friends, so terrible in its finality.In the wake of the Hughes tragedy there has been a disturbing number of quality batsmen being struck on the helmet. The hit list is not dominated by mid- to lower-order batsmen. In recent times players of the calibre of Steven Smith, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke, Chris Rogers and Virat Kohli have copped heavy blows to the helmet.When looking at footage of the incidents, you see all too clearly that all of the players who were hit were not watching the ball and they were struck on the side of the helmet.Just a couple of weeks after Hughes tragic death, Australia played India at the Adelaide Oval. The ground was packed but the silence was deafening the instant Kohli was hit on the helmet from the first ball he faced from Mitchell Johnson.Kohli, one of the best and most exciting batsmen in the world, was not watching the ball.If some of the worlds best batsmen are taking their eye off the ball, whats happening to batting technique among the young, emerging cricketers?All parents want their children to be safe, but just sticking a helmet on them is not the only solution here. Youngsters need to learn to watch the ball like a hawk and to play short-pitched bowling.Junior coaches everywhere must look at what they are doing. Proper technique against short-pitched bowling starts the day the youngster picks up a cricket bat, eager to learn the game. The Chappells were five years old when they did.Former Test opening batsman Ashley Woodcock coaches juniors and seniors at University Cricket Club in Adelaide. He learnt the rudiments of batting from his older brother Steve.Two basic shots are the backward defence and the forward defence, Woodcock said. With the modern-day forward press, it makes life difficult to get back and across to a short-pitched delivery. In the days before helmets a batsman had no choice. He had to watch the ball.Long-time South Australian captain Les Favell used to invite a current State player to accompany him on coaching trips to the country areas. He stressed to the youngsters that all the attacking shots are linked to two basic shots: the forward and back defence.When a batsman plays back, the movement is back and across. From that position he can cut, pull or hook. Shots developed from the forward defence are the off and the cover drives and shots off the pads.Among the list of players who accompanied Favell on those trips were Garry Sobers and Barry Richards. Both men had a back-and-across first movement. Those basic movements are important, all done while never taking your eye off the ball.Against fast bowling a back-and-across first movement allows the batsman to get in behind the line of flight. If the ball is wide he can allow it to pass, but he can hook a short ball that is passing over leg stump if he is back and across his stumps, with his head inside the line of flight. This technique is terrific because even if he makes a mistake and misses the ball, his head is inside the line and out of harms way.Englands Colin Cowdrey scored centuries against West Indian speedsters Wes Hall and Charlie Griffith in the early 1960s. He likened the challenge of facing a fast bowler to be akin to a boxer moving his feet swiftly, never taking his eyes off his opponent, easily swaying away from danger.Ian Redpath, a former Australian Test opener, rarely hooked the ball, yet he scored three centuries in 1975-76 against West Indies, whose attack included Andy Roberts and Michael Holding. Redpaths method was make the West Indies bowlers bowl to him. Anything short, shoulder to head high, he swayed out of the way, waiting for a ball of full length to drive for four.It is folly to think the helmet, however innovative and strong, can fully protect batsmen.Last Friday, during the elimination final of the Matador Cup at Drummoyne Oval, New South Wales opening batsman Daniel Hughes was struck on the side of his helmet as he attempted to hook a short ball from Victorias Peter Siddle. Hughes fell to his knees as concerned fieldsmen rushed to his side. The medical officer at the ground, Dr John Orchard, immediately ordered Hughes to take a concussion test. After undergoing the test, Hughes (retired hurt on 23) was ruled out of taking further part in the match. A concussion substitute (Nick Larkin) took his place.Fellow NSW batsman Nic Maddinson replaced Hughes in the order. He too was struck a blow on the helmet and was assessed under Cricket Australias new Concussion and Head Traauma Policy by medical staff on the ground and allowed to bat on. Adidas Human Race Italia. He played on and belted a match-winning 86. These incidents further highlight how dangerous the game has become mainly because of poor technique against short-pitched bowling and batsmen taking their eye off the ball.Former Test captain Ian Chappell was a good hooker and I cant remember him being hit in the head at any stage of his first-class career.When youre quickly on to the front foot its impossible to get inside the line of the delivery to play the shot more safely, he said.I cant believe they [Cricket Australia] held a review of safety and it didnt include the technique of playing the short ball.Bob Simpson, a former Australian Test opener and captain, was adamant that technique against fast bowling generally seemed to be lacking.I think the helmet gives a batsman a false sense of security, he said.Don Bradman reckoned the most important aspect of batting was to watch the ball. Arguably Australias best batsman since Bradman, Greg Chappell, nowadays Cricket Australias talent manager, said the bigger issue is that the helmets are now heavier and cause players to stand more upright to manage that weight.This puts their weight back on their heels more than the players of the past who were more on the balls of their feet, Greg said. They find it harder to change position quickly so they are more prone to get hit than a nimble-footed player.The fact that they know that they are less likely to get badly hurt, there is not the same incentive to develop a good method to deal with short balls. We didnt have that luxury so we had to get into a better position.The two keys to not getting hit are to be on the balls of your feet and to watch the ball.In relation to coaching youngsters in the art of batting, Greg suggested starting with a soft ball. Unlike our father [Martin Chappell], I wouldnt recommend using a hard ball from the start.Use a soft ball and include short balls early by getting a youngster to hit to areas. What I mean by hitting to areas is to set the session up anywhere but a net. A tennis court is ideal so the kid has a feeling of space around them, but the ball cant go too far. Apart from ensuring that the grip and stance are comfortable, relaxed and efficient, I wouldnt teach the kid anything else.Greg advocated setting three scoring zones - square of the wicket on the off-side, square of the wicket on the leg side and straight back past the bowler.If one can cut, pull and drive, one can be a great player. Think Graeme Pollock - those three shots were all he needed. Every other shot is a derivative of those three anyway.Greg sets up a coaching session by bowling from the net of a tennis court to the youngster batting on the base line. Scoring zones are from the back corner of the net to mid-pitch both sides. He lobs the ball to the batsman and direct them to a target. For example, if the ball is lobbed full and straight, Greg will say, Okay son, I want you to hit it to the net straight past me.If a cut shot to the point boundary is required, the ball is lobbed short and wide of the off stump.I include balls bouncing up to chest and head height very early so it becomes part of the whole rather than a separate part of the learning, Greg said.Most kids quickly work out that if they shift their body to the off side of the short ball they can hit it hard through the leg-side target area. As they get more proficient, I cramp them for room with more speed to see how they cope. If they have a problem, I ask them what they think the solution is rather than telling them what to do. It generally works extremely well and the kids progress quickly.Martin Chappell gave his three boys this advice: You have a bat in your hand for one reason and one reason only and that is to score runs. Learn to use the bat properly and you will never get hit.Greg believes good footwork is nothing more than developing the ability to shift ones body from one position to another to free ones arms to hit the ball to the intended target area.This is what Bradman did better than the rest of us, he said.For the sake of the health of our international and emerging batsmen, lets hope the administrators take heed of the sound advice from three of Australias batting legends.By all means, lets have lighter, stronger batting helmets, but the very first step in safety for batsmen against any bowler is to watch the ball.The ICC cant afford to take its eye off the ball over this safety issue. Safety for batsmen is a global priority. Batsman getting hit on the head - whether while wearing a helmet or not - are vulnerable to serious injury.Proper technique when playing the short stuff is paramount and every batting coach from the grassroots to the Test arena needs to take heed. 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 ' ' '
EUGENE, Ore. Justin Hunter Jersey . -- Consider this a second chance for Tyson Gay. Maybe his last one, too.The 33-year-old sprinter was handed a spot on the U.S. Olympic track team as a relay runner Monday, more than two years after his doping positive cost the Americans their silver medal from the 2012 Games.Gay dominated the sprints for a time before Usain Bolt burst onto the scene in 2008. The American is still ranked second all-time behind Bolt with a time of 9.69 seconds in the 100.But the last several years have been a struggle, filled with injuries and setbacks -- none bigger than a positive doping test in 2013 that cost him one year out of the sport and forced the relay team to surrender its medal.Gay finished fifth in the 100 and sixth in the 200 at the recently completed Olympic trials, but coaches stuck to the order of finish for the 100 meters, taking Gay and sixth-place finisher Christian Coleman, along with Mike Rodgers, whose spot was locked in thanks to his fourth-place finish.In Gay, the U.S. gets a two-time Olympian and 2007 world champion at both 100 and 200 meters -- choosing him over high-schoolers Noah Lyles and Michael Norman, who finished 4-5 in the 200 at trials.Asked before the trials what it would mean to make the team, Gay said: A hell of a lot. Im considered the old one of the bunch now. It definitely means a lot to me to still keep up with these young guys here, use some of my veteran skills to my advantage.Also added for relays on the 127-person team, which includes 84 first-time Olympians, were Arman Hall, Tony McQuay and Kyle Clemons (mens 4x400), Ariana Washington (womens 4x100) and Francena McCorory and Courtney Okolo (womens 4x400).Some other things to know about the U.S. track and field team:LIKE A FINE WINE: At 41, Bernard Lagat is still going strong -- making his fifth Olympic team. The ageless 5,000-meter runner showed just about everyone that age is merely a number. I dont believe Im old, Lagat said. If you believe youre old -- Im going to run like an old man.JUST A KID: For a few days, 18-year-old high jumper Vashti Cunningham was set to be the youngest to compete for the U.S. Olympic track team in four decades. That lasted until 16-year-old Sydney McLaughlin came along and made the team in the 400-meter hurdles and took that distinction. To think, she had a little case of stage fright to begin the trials. It hardly showed as she set the world junior record to finish third and earn her place in Rio. This has to be the icing on the cake, the prep star from New Jersey said. Regardless of what happens in Rio, I made it here and Im just so thankful for all of that.FEEL-GOOD STORY ENDS WELL: 800-meter runner Boris Berian made the team despite an uphill climb -- working at McDonalds after dropping out of college to earn extra money to train and recently winning a lawsuit over Nike over what gear he could wear that nearly kept him off the starting line.FEEL-GOOD STORY ENDS NOT AS WELL: 110-meter hurdler and defending Olympic champion Aries Merritt finished fourth -- missing the team by one spot less than a year after returning from a kidney transplant. He had a positive outlook, though. For me to be where I am is a miracle, said Merritt, who operated at 10 percent kidney function when he captured a bronze medal at the 2015 world championships last summer.DOUBLE DIP: Why stop at one event when you can double? There are plenty of athletes doubling up in Rio, including Galen Rupp (marathon, 10,000 meters), LaShawn Merritt (200, 400), Tianna Bartoletta (100, long jump), Tori Bowie (100, 200) and Justin Gatlin (100, 200). But Molly Huddle, who qualified for the 5,000 and 10,000 meters, was entered only in the 10K. And Allyson Felix, who had designs on a 200-400 double, didnt make the 200 lineup. Jack Ham Jersey . -- Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis was charged Thursday with driving while intoxicated, a day after he was suspended for an NFL substance-abuse policy violation. T.

HESPERIA, California -- A teenager has filed a civil lawsuit alleging school administrators and coaches failed to protect him from being sodomized as part of a hazing ritual carried out by teammates on the Oak Hills High School football team.The alleged victim was a freshman football player at the time of the 2012 incident and is identified in San Bernardino County Superior Court documents as John Doe. He is now 18, finished with high school and living in another community near Hesperia, according to his attorney.The older players had shut off the lights in the locker room, said Skye Daley, the Irvine-based attorney handling the case. He was pinned down and he thinks it took at least two people, maybe three, to pin him down and penetrate him with their fingers.Daley said the plaintiffs decision to come forward anonymously and to pursue legal action was a direct result of his viewing of an Outside the Lines special report on extreme hazing that aired Sept. 13 on ESPN. The report featured another former Oak Hills football player, Josh Villegas, who alleged that there was a culture of abuse around the football team.In that OTL special, Villegas said that, as a 14-year-old freshman in 2013, a player pinned him down in the locker room bathroom while another stuck fingers into his rectum. He and his family have criticized the school for not seriously investigating what happened.The incident is part of a wider trend of hazing incidents involving sodomy. As part of its special report, Outside the Lines found more than 40 such incidents since 2011, including seven so far this year.Its become much more violent, sexually, since the internet, psychologist Susan Lipkins, who focuses her work on hazing, told OTL.Experts say that most such incidents never get reported. In the years prior to the OTL special in September, the former Oak Hills football player who has just decided to come forward had only spoken with his mother about the alleged attack, Daley said.The day the assault happened, he told his mom and made her swear she would never tell his dad about what happened, Daley said, adding that the incident was never reported to coaches, school officials or police.But on Sept. 12, the 18-year old, aware of the upcoming OTL report, decided to finally inform his father about the hazing incident that had occurred four years earlier, Daley said.The teen played football his entire freshman season at Oak Hills but left the school after his freshman year, finishing high school in a neighboring community, Daley said.According to Daley, the father of the 18-year-old former Oak Hills player reached out to him after watching the interview of 17-year-old Josh Villegas in the OTL report on extreme hazing. Villegas recounted how he was verbally abused by football team coaches, who, he said, frequently used profanity and gay slurs during practices.Villegas also told ESPN older players would frequently fondle the buttocks of younger players, threatening to insert fingers in their rectums and assault them after shutting off the lights in the locker room. Villegas said he was using a urinal in a locker room bathroom in August 2013, prior to a football practice, when two older players overpowered him and followed through oon the threat. Robert Golden Jersey. The details of the alleged attack are spelled out in a July 2014 lawsuit filed by Villegas and his mother, Letha Selby, in San Bernardino County Superior Court against the Hesperia Unified School District.Identified in court documents at the time as John and Jane Doe, Villegas and his mother allege that Oak Hills coaches and administrators encouraged and tolerated a long-lasting tradition of ritual hazing and sadomasochistic sexual beatings.Coaches and administrators at Oak Hills, a school district spokesperson and the districts attorney all declined to speak with Outside the Lines about the lawsuit filed by Villegas and Selby. In court filings, the school district denies Villegas and Selbys allegations, saying they stem from an unverified complaint.Villegas said he was never able to identify the teammates who, he says, sodomized him in a locker room bathroom.The school districts investigation of the case was carried out by Bill Holland, a school police officer at the time, who had served as a volunteer freshman football coach the season prior to the alleged attack. Holland completed his investigation in two days, dismissing Villegas claims.The fall 2012 season at Oak Hills, when Holland served as a volunteer coach, is also when the second teen alleges he was attacked by teammates inside a dark locker room.It validates Joshs story by adding yet another name to the list of people whove come forward and said: This happened to me, Daley said. What this does is it confirms that theres a culture that permeates the football team. Its systemic.I applaud his bravery, Villegas said, when contacted about the latest lawsuit filed by a former Oak Hills football player. Thats what I wanted to happen by coming out. I wanted more people to come forward.Im real proud of Joshua. It took a lot of courage for him to speak up. Seeing other kids come forward has really made him feel better, Selby said.Five other former Oak Hills players have confirmed to Outside the Lines that violent sexual hazing was commonplace on the football team.According to this most recent lawsuit, the attack in 2012 that involved forced sodomy followed weeks of abusive language from coaches, including the frequent use of gay slurs, and increasingly severe sadomasochistic sexual hazing.The plaintiff was subjected to and witnessed regular instances of tea bagging wherein an older player would place his testicles on the face of a younger player, the lawsuit says.In court depositions from the Villegas lawsuit, obtained by Outside the Lines, Holland and other Oak Hills coaches denied the use of gay slurs and any knowledge of extreme hazing but they also admitted they did not investigate whether any history of hazing existed within the football program.Holland is currently the mayor of Hesperia.The civil case filed by Josh Villegas and his mother is scheduled to go to trial Nov. 14.Were prepared to try this case and we think we have a very strong case. Josh deserves his day in court, Daley said.A school district spokesperson and the districts attorney were not available for comment Friday. 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 ' ' '
Legspinner Samuel Badree has described Pakistan as a very, very dangerous team which can demolish any opposition. Huarache Blanche Et Grise . West Indies face them in three T20Is from Friday in the UAE and Badree insisted his side waswary of the challenge posed by Sarfraz Ahmed and his men despite the gap in rankings. West Indies, having won the World T20, are at No. 3 and Pakistan are No. 7.On their day, they can demolish any opposition, and we are wary of that challenge, Badree said. We respect every opposition that we come up against, and we are going to do the same against Pakistan. We are going to prepare well, knowing that Pakistan are a very, very dangerous team.The responsibility of living up to that reputation has fallen on a few rookies, and Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur gave them a glowing recommendation. The players we have brought in - Imad Wasim, Babar Azam, Sohail Khan, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Nawaz - they take the game on. They dont fear failure, which is fantastic. They are the guys we want to build this one-day cricket brand around.West Indies, however, would have to find a way to cope without two of their best T20I players. Chris Gayle is injured and Andre Russell withdrew from the tour for personal reasons.Its a different team from the team that won the World T20, Badree said. We have a lot of new guys, a few players who are making their debuts on this tour. A number of our guys have been here before - the likes of [Sunil] Narine, [Dwayne] Bravo, [Kieron] Pollard. So we are looking forward to some very good games of cricket and, of course, wed like to win the series and remain as one of the best T20 teams in the world.One of the newer faces is opening batsman Evin Lewis, who made his maiden first-class, List A and T20I centuries in 2016 and has been named player of the year by the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board. That maiden T20I ton came against India in Florida in which Lewis and Johnson Charles shared a 126-run opening stand to lay the platform for a match-winning total of 245.I said [to myself] that this could be my opportunity to put myself on the world stage and I went out there and played positively and it paid off for me so I was happy about that, Lewis said of the knock. Johno [Johnson Charles] is a pretty attacking batsman like myself so there is less pressure on me. When he scores, it makes it easier for me to score also.A factor that could make this series, which also includes three ODIs and three Tests, compelling could be the mercurial nature of both sides.Pakistan are very similar to us in terms of their consistency - or lack, thereof, Badree said. One day they will give a brilliant performance, just like us, then the next, they leave a lot to be desired.West Indies begin the tour with a warm-up match against Emirates Cricket Board XI on September 20.

Good novels with a motor sport theme are hard to come by. Jesper Fast Jersey . There were many excruciating examples in the 50s and 60s when, fitting the period perhaps, drivers were all jolly good chaps and eventually got their girl -- or gal. The villain usually reeked of garlic and drove for a foreign team run either by a dastardly cove smoking untipped Gitanes or a mysterious Count with slicked-back hair and driving an Italian supercar.Bob Judd set new standards 20 years ago thanks to bolstering his genuine enthusiasm for the sport by becoming part of racing circus on both sides of the Atlantic. Added to which, he is a fine writer with an eye for detail; two attributes not necessarily a given with his predecessors.For me, the best fiction motor sport book of all time is Stand On It by Stroker Ace, actually written by William Neely and Robert K. Ottum as an autobiography of a fictional driver based on actual events from the racing world in North America. Published in 1971, its been many years since I first came across the paperback but Im sure it would continue to have me doubled over if I read it today. It was so good, they made the film Stroker Ace starring Burt Reynolds but, as often happens, much of the subtly generated by the truly clever writing was lost in translation.Im mentioning this because Im currently on holiday and brought with me an advance copy of Crash, a novel by Toby Vintcent with a Formula One theme. The brash title did little to dispel a reluctance to turn the first page and get going.I read it in four sittings (okay, I didnt have much to do while lying on the beach) but that should indicate that this is a pacey, well-written story. F1 forms the backdrop but not the main theme, which can best be described the intrigue and nastiness of Russian politics.The chapters are short; a clever format that encourages page-turning, as in: Ill just read this next chapter....and the next...oh, and this one, too. Thats because the plot moves along at a brisk pace, starting with a massive shunt that kills a number of spectators. Initially, this seems ghoulish and the mechanics of the accident come across as slightly bizarre. But those details become irrelevant as the story reveals all.If the detail involved in the motor racing narrative is to be a barometer, then it is to be assumed that Vintcent has carried out an equally diligent and extensive research in the other areas touched by his plot -- specifically, the machinations of Russian politics. If the real Charlie Whiting reads this novel and finds himself a touch perturbed initially about the insinuation that one of the race tracks is not safe, his unease will be nothing compared to President Putins feelings over how his country and the books fictional leaders are portrayed.The story line is comfortably easy to follow thanks to clever recapping of events by the main characters. As with all good novels, there are parts that marginally stretch credibility. But who cares? Its a motor racing novel that works; a cracking read worth putting in your bag for the coming holiday.Crash by Toby Vintcent (Arcadia Books) Martin St. Louis Jersey .  The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season.

Renata did not expect her sons success with the Foxes, but said she did not miss a match as the dramatic campaign unfolded.At the final whistle I burst into tears. I only heard from Claudio later because my grandchildren and my sons cousins called. He was so happy. We all are. Now we can finally relax, she told Italian newspaper La Repubblica.

It has been a colourful journey for Ranieri since his Roma days In my view, at Roma he was not treated with respect. In the family we are all Giallorossi fans, so when Claudio was there we were also guests at Trigoria [the training ground], she said.We were disappointed with the way things ended.

MARYS, Ont. -- Tim Raines and George Bell were both superstar outfielders who enjoyed their peak years in Canadian markets. Their Canadian connection will live on for years to come. Raines and Bell will be officially inducted in the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame on Saturday. The Class of 2013 also includes former outfielder Rob Ducey, former announcer Tom Cheek and longtime minor-league owner Nat Bailey. "When you start playing professional baseball, you dont ever think about this," a smiling Raines said Friday. "When your career is over its when you really start thinking about it. But I never dreamed when I first signed out of high school that this day would ever come. "But its a special day, its a special achievement and its something you have until the day you die." Raines played in the outfield for six major-league teams from 1979 to 2002 and had a glorious run with the Montreal Expos through the 1980s. The seven-time all-star won two World Series as a player later in his playing career and added a third title as a coach. Nicknamed "Rock," he retired with a career .294 average with 2,605 hits, 170 homers and 808 stolen bases. "You knew when you were facing him, you were facing one of the best," said former Blue Jays closer Tom Henke, a 2011 Hall inductee. Bell spent 12 seasons in the major leagues with Toronto, the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox but enjoyed his best success with the Blue Jays. The three-time all-star won the American League MVP with Toronto in 1987 after hitting .308 with 47 homers and 134 runs batted in. A lasting image for Toronto fans is of Bell making the game-ending catch in left field when the Blue Jays won their first American League East division title. "I think catching that last out in 1985 was the best (memory) ever," Bell said. "I went down on my knees and pray to the Lord. I (caught) the last out," he added. Ducey, a 48-year-old Toronto native who grew up in Cambridge, Ont., played for both Toronto and Montreal over his 13-year pro career. He played for Canada at the 2004 Athens Olympics and later moved into coaching. "I think a lot of the friendships and relationships over the course of 20 years, 25 years and even ongoing now, people you meet in the game and opportunities that present themselves because of the game," Ducey said of his special memories. "I think thats the fondest part of the whole deal." Cheek, who diied in 2005, broadcast 4,306 consecutive Jays games from Torontos first-ever contest right up until June 2, 2004. Wholesale Wild Jerseys. He was recently named as the recipient of the 2013 Ford C. Frick Award for broadcasting excellence by the Baseball Hall of Fame and will be honoured again next month in Cooperstown. Bailey, who died in 1978, purchased the triple-A Vancouver Mounties in the mid-50s and helped raise the sports interest in the city. Bell, Raines and Ducey were on hand for a golf tournament and banquet on a rainy Friday morning in the small town of St. Marys, Ont., about a two-hour drive west of Toronto. They were all smiles as they shared some laughs with old friends and recalled the fond memories of their playing days. Raines said Montreal was a very special city for him. "It meant everything to me," he said. "Actually, I grew up in Montreal. I was a 19-year-old kid when I first went there and I was almost 30 when I left. Just the raw excitement of the fans, competing at the major-league level, it was like home for me. "I felt like I was an adopted son of Montreal and I enjoyed every minute of it." Bell, often a man of few words, was happy to be back in the area and proud of his latest accomplishment. "I think its one of the more beautiful honours you can have in baseball or any kind of sport," he said. Henke remembers Bell as being a tremendous competitor. "George was a guy youd want to go to war with," he said. "He was a great teammate." He recalled Bells leadership in the clubhouse really standing out. "George was an old-school guy where he took the young guys aside and said, Hey, this is the right way to do things, this is the wrong way to do things.

Raines, who like Bell is 53, recalled thriving off the energy in the stadium during his days patrolling the Montreal outfield. "I was a proud guy. I was a guy that had fun doing what I was doing and the fans got me excited to do what I did," he said. "For my teammates who played with me, they knew how I was.

METAIRIE, La. Nike Air Force 1 Offerte . -- New Orleans Saints cornerback Delvin Breaux is expected to miss six weeks after having surgery Monday to repair a broken left fibula, coach Sean Payton said.Thats a big blow, considering that Breaux has established himself as one of New Orleans top defensive players and since the Saints are extremely thin on experience behind him.The Saints other three cornerbacks in Sundays season opener were all making their NFL debuts -- second-year pro P.J. Williams and undrafted rookies?DeVante Harris?and Ken Crawley. Thats part of the reason why they allowed 25 points over the final 19 minutes in a crushing 35-34 loss to the Oakland Raiders.The Saints already signed veteran Sterling Moore last week after he was released by the Buffalo Bills. He was inactive because he was so new to the team, but he will almost certainly be active for a Week 2 matchup that doesnt get any easier --?Odell Beckham Jr. and the New York Giants.On Tuesday the Saints signed cornerback B.W. Webb to help fill Breauxs void.I dont know that it changes the vision for the defense, Payton said of Breauxs injury. Weve just got to really understand who were playing and who were taking away. But I dont think by any means you start with a whole new plan.Obviously losing a good player like him can alter some things youre wanting to do coverage-wise.The Saints had one of the worst pass defenses in NFL history last season, setting league records for most touchdown passes allowed in a season (45) and opponents passer rating (116.1). They have since released veteran cornerbacks Brandon Browner and Keenan Lewis, and they placed last years nickel cornerback, Damian Swann, on injured reserve this summer.Breaux was the glue for that group, however, after his sensational debut season in 2015, coming from the Canadian Football League. The physical, 6-foot-1, 196-pounder made a remarkable comeback after breaking his neck in high school 10 years ago. He wasnt able to play in college, so he worked his way through semi-pro leagues, arena leagues and the CFL before landing the job with his hometown team. Nike Air Force One Basse Bianche .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Rowers packed up their oars for the day while cyclists hit slippery roads on skinny time-trial bikes unsuited to harsh weather conditions as sun-drenched Rio turned blustery, wet and gray on Wednesday.Strong winds rattled palm trees along the coast and whipped up waves on the scenic lagoon where rowing was canceled for a full day for the second time at the Rio Olympics.Twenty-two races, including the first two medal races, were postponed but international rowing federation director Matt Smith said theres still room on the schedule without having to resort to drastic measures -- even if Thursdays competition is also called off.If Friday morning at 10 oclock we are sitting here, we may have to lose some races, Smith said.The regatta already lost a day to bad weather on Sunday, but race officials made up for it by rescheduling heats for Monday and Tuesday.Under dark skies, cyclists braved lashing rain and wind on the time-trial course along Rios southern coast. Ellen van Dijk of the Netherlands slid off the road. Although she stayed on her bike, she got tangled in weeds, which may have cost her a medal. She finished fourth.Gold-medalist Kristin Armstrong of the U.S. said she got a bit concerrned when she woke up at 4:30 a. Nike Air Force One Basse Grigie. m. and looked out the window.I had a choice at that moment to take it and get super nervous and say, `Oh my gosh, she said. Or I could say, `Ive probably ridden in the rain on my time-trial bike more than anybody out here, so I just tricked my mind and said, `Take it, Armstrong said.Time-trial bikes have skinny tires and aerodynamics that dont always work well in the wind.The mens competition took place in similar weather, with parts of the course drenched in rain and others more or less dry.The biggest problem for rowers is not so much the rain as the wind. On Saturday, the competition went ahead despite choppy waters that left rowers struggling to keep their boats balanced.Some athletes who struggled in the waves said the races should have been postponed, but rowing officials insisted the conditions were the same for everyone.Its much more stressful when we have unfair wind, said Smith, recalling how at the London Olympics the wind sometimes varied from lane to lane.---Associated Press writer David Skretta contributed to this report. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Oswaldo Arcia homered leading off the 10th inning, and Minnesota beat the Chicago White Sox 3-2 to complete the day-night doubleheader sweep on Friday. Josh Willingham and Chris Hermann also went deep in the game, and the Twins hit a combined seven homers on the day on the way to the sweep even though they struck out 25 times. "You dont win too many ballgames when you strike out (24) times," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "The ball flies here. We put some good swings out there, got enough runs. The bullpen did a great job. Starters did a great job for us." Brian Duensing (6-1) struck out the lone batter he faced in the opener and then worked a scoreless ninth to become the first pitcher to win both games of a doubleheader since the Yankees Luis Vizcaino on July 21, 2007, according to STATS LLC. He also is the first in franchise history to win two games on the same day since Walter Johnson in 1923, according to information provided to the team by the Elias Sports Bureau. "I was kind of in the right place at the right time," Duensing said. "I think all of our pitchers threw the ball really well today." All that came after the White Sox made a big move before the opener, trading Alex Rios to Texas. Then, Justin Morneau hit a grand slam and solo homer to lift the Twins to a 7-5 win in the early game. In the second game, Minnesota was trailing 2-1 heading into the eighth when Willingham greeted reliever Matt Lindstrom with a leadoff homer. Arcia, who homered in the first game, put the Twins ahead when he drove a 1-0 pitch from Dylan Axelrod (4-9) well beyond the centre-field wall leading off the 10th. Glen Perkins hit Avisail Garcia leading off the bottom half, but he ended it by retiring Alexei Ramirez on a fly to right with a runner on third for his 28th save in 31 chances. That gave the White Sox 12 losses in 15 games and wiped out whatever momentum they built by sweeping the New York Yankees. Hermann homered off Charlie Leesman in the fourth to give the Twins a 1-0 lead, but Chicagos Alexei Ramirez tied it with a solo drive in the bottom half against Liam Hendriks. That came hours after he hit a two-run shot, ending a home run drought that dated to April 3 and spanned 451 at-bats. The White Soxs Blake Tekotte made it 2-1 in the sixth with his first career homer, after being recalled from Triple-A Charlotte earlier in the day. Leesman dodged several tight spots in his major league debut but left to a nice ovation after he walked Chris Colabello leading off the sixth. He allowed one run and four hits, and was headed back to Triple-A after having his contract purchaased earlier in the day. Patrick Roy Jersey. Hendriks lasted 6 1-3 innings and gave up two runs and seven hits before heading back to Triple-A Rochester. Caleb Thielbar came in with runners on first and third and struck out Garcia -- the promising outfielder who arrived late after being called up following the Rios trade --batting for Tekotte. "That situation called for him being put in the game," manager Robin Ventura said. "We didnt really hesitate. He was there for awhile." Clete Thomas made a nice running catch on Alejandro De Azas fly to centre to end the threat, and White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham saved a run with a diving stop against a pinch-hitting Joe Mauer with two on and two out in the eighth. In the first game, the White Sox were in line for their fourth straight win before Morneau mucked it up. His grand slam off reliever Nate Jones with two out in the seventh wiped out a 3-1 deficit. He added a solo drive in the ninth off Ramon Troncoso, making it 7-3. Perkins gave up a two-run single to Ramirez in the bottom half before striking out Adam Dunn to end the game. Colabello and Oswaldo Arcia also went deep for Minnesota and the Twins came away with the win after dropping two of three at Kansas City. Chicagos Paul Konerko tied Cal Ripken Jr. with his 431st home run. Ramirez made it 3-1 with a two-run drive in the fifth, and the White Sox fell after sweeping three from the New York Yankees. John Danks was in line for his first win since July 2, but the bullpen couldnt hold it for him. He left after walking Clete Thomas and Pedro Florimon to start the seventh. Matt Lindstrom struck out Brian Dozier before Donnie Veal (1-3) walked Joe Mauer to load the bases. Then, after Jones struck out Josh Willingham, Morneau drove a 1-2 pitch out to right. The grand slam was the seventh of his career and his first since July 20, 2009, at Oakland. Gibson lasted 5 2-3 innings for Minnesota and allowed three runs and four hits, including the drives by Konerko and Ramirez. He struck out four and walked four. Duensing (5-1) struck out Tekotte to end the sixth. NOTES: Ramirez had gone 451 at-bats without a homer before he connected in Game 1. ... Dayan Viciedo was the DH for Game 2 after being scratched from the lineup as the left fielder from Game 1 because of discomfort in his left thumb. He also missed Tuesdays game against the Yankees after jamming the thumb the previous day. ...

Two of the most iconic players in Houston Texans history have hung up their cleats over the past eight days. Nike Air Force 1 Low Hombre . Tennessee Titans wideout Andre Johnson?announced his retirement?on Monday, a week after Miami Dolphins running back Arian Foster did the same.Which raises the question: Who is the best player in the Texans 15-year history?Johnson joined the Texans a year after they were founded in 2002, playing 12 years and earning seven Pro Bowl selections along with two first-team and two second-team All-Pro selections. He tallied nearly three times more receiving yards (13,851) with Houston than the next-most by any player (Owen Daniels, 4,617) in team history.Foster, however, is the franchises all-time touchdown leader, with 68 (to Johnsons 64). He played seven seasons for the Texans, earning four Pro Bowl trips and being named first-team and second-team All-Pro once each. Foster led the NFL in rushing yards, scrimmage yards and total touchdowns in 2010, before leading the league in TDs again in 2012.A current Texan has a compelling case as well. Last season, defensive end J.J. Watt joined Lawrence Taylor as the only players in NFL history to collect three Defensive Player of the Year awards. In his first five NFL seasons, Watt received four Pro Bowl nods and four first-team All-Pro selections.So whos your pick?Watt is on injured reserve after his second back surgery in a span of 10 weeks, but his career path should make him a shoo-in answer to this question eventually. His 76 career sacks are already 23 more than anyone else in Texans history (Mario Williams). Since sacks became an official stat in 1982, only Reggie White (81.0) tallied more through his first five seasons than Watt (74.5).--?David DeChant Nike Air Force 1 07 Hombre .

SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. Hampshire 276 for 1 (Smith 99*, Adams 88, Alsop 50*) v LancashireScorecard Stand-in Hampshire captain Will Smith sits on 99 overnight, one short of his first Specsavers County Championship century of the season - as the Division One basement county enjoyed the best of the opening day against Lancashire at the Ageas Bowl.Smith, taking the reins while James Vince turns out for England, eclipsing his previous best score of 67 this season, while partners Jimmy Adams and Tom Alsop posted half centuries.Smiths opening companion Adams scored his Championship-best score of 88 as part of a stand of 191, Hampshires highest partnership of the season, and the second greatest opening stand by any Hampshire team against Lancashire.Smith and Adams took few risks in each of the opening two sessions of the day, after the former had won the toss and batted on a flat track. Runs always seemed hard work and required patience to find, but Smith, in particular, batted in an almost shell-like state, leaving the swinging ball outside his off stump, intensely keen to horde his wicket.In slight contrast, Adams was happier to punch over-pitched deliveries down the ground and open up the off side with well-placed cover drives. He survived several excited appeals for caught-behind but the only genuine chance came when he edged low to TTom Smith at second slip, who couldnt quite get his fingers round the ball. Nike Air Force 1 High Comprar. The left handed Adams reached his half century in 122 balls, continuing fine recent form which has included three fifties and a 49 in four innings - although none of his seven fifties this season have been converted to three-figures.Sure enough, he thwacked a cut straight to Steven Croft at point for 88, a case of a metre either side and it would have reached the boundary in the blink of an eye.Smith, in his sedate manner, reached his own fifty in 147 balls, but his luck was in on 70 when he edged to second slip where Smith, again, was the unlucky fielder.But will have to wait until the morning to have a chance of converting to a ton - which would be the 17th of his career.Alsop was alongside him at the close, unbeaten on 50, which included his 500th first-class run, before the close, adding another 85 to secure two batting points for the home side.The Lancashire bowling attack will have bowled worse for more reward, but by no means looked threatening for a large period of time. Saqid Mahmood, on his first-class debut, carried the more regular worries to the batsmen but it was a Hampshire day. 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 ' ' '

The result means unbeaten England lead the way after three rounds of the tournament, two points clear of France and Wales. And England will next face Wales in a pivotal showdown at the Twickenham Stoop on Saturday March 12 (live on Sky Sports 5).Having lost their tournament opener in Ireland, Wales made it two wins in a row with a hard-fought victory over France at The Gnoll.And the Welsh have also confirmed their place for the 2017 World Cup, because they cannot now be overtaken by Scotland. Safi NDiaye scored a first-half try for France The hosts made a superb start, taking the lead after just three minutes when full-back Dyddgu Hywel received the ball on the 22 and ran a lovely line to touch down.France winger Caroline Boujard then dropped a kick when looking certain to score, but the visiting forwards were impressive, and No 8 Safi NDiaye scored a pushover try on the quarter hour.However, brave Welsh defending held up the French pack on the line on a pair of occasions, meaning it was 5-5 at half-time.Wales lost Shona Powell-Hughes to the sin-bin just before the break, though, and France went in front five minutes after the interval, courtesy of an Audrey Abadie penalty.

Cyril Riolis last-gasp goal lifted Hawthorn to a pulsating 11. Scarpe Nike Air Huarache .9 (75) to 10.10 (70) win over Sydney to take the reigning triple premiers two games clear at the top of the AFL.Thursday nights top-of-the-table cracker went down to the wire at the SCG as two quality rivals picked and prodded each other until the final siren.The Swans led after the first and third quarters in front of 42,314 spectators - the venues biggest crowd since 1997 - and held a one-point lead with less than three minutes on the clock.But Riolis late heroics were the difference for the Hawks in the five-point win.It settled the score on Sydneys round-nine victory at the MCG and hands Alastair Clarksons men the mental edge heading into any potential finals meeting.For the Swans it was a second golden opportunity missed to go top, just a fortnight after the Western Bulldogs denied them the summit.It came despite Gary Rohans career-high four goals and an impressive performance from youngster Tom Papley, who booted two of his own.Rohan put Sydney on the board first with his 50th career goal as the Swans took the opening term by nine points and led the inside 50 and contested possession counts by eight.But the Hawks returned with a vengeance to keep their long-time rivals to zero goals and one point in a dominant second quarter.Small forwards Rioli (two goals, 17 possessions) and Paul Puopolo (one goal, 18 possessions) fired up to give some of the Swans younger backmen a schooling, as John Longmires league-best defence struggled to get out of their half despite Lance Franklins (two goals) best efforts.However the 11-point halftime lead didnt hold as Sydney rediscovered their efficiency.Papley booted the Swans first goal since the opening quarter before Rohan brought the scores level and then kicked Sydney clear with his third and fourth majors.With everything on the line in the fourth, Jonathon Ceglar put the Hawks in front by a point with less than nine minutes to run.But within the blink of an eye Papley struck again, out-foxing Luke Hodge to bomb a long-range beauty.When Shaun Burgoyne slotted his second to narrow Sydneys already-slim lead to a solitary point, the stage was set for Rioli to set sail his 55m winner.Hodge could attract the ire of the match review panel for a sling tackle on Callum Sinclair.The Swans will have some concerns over Zak Jones, who was carried from the field with a leg injury in the final term. Pelle Nike Huarache Triple Nero Uomo/Donna Scarpe .C. -- Charlotte Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said after all of these years in the NBA hes still amazed at some of the things LeBron James does. Scarpe Nike Air Huarache Ultra Breathe Triple Nero Uomo/Donna 833147-001 .ca! Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. . World champions Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov of Russia won the gold medal with 237.71 points, Moore-Towers and Moscovitch followed at 208.45 and Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov of Russia were third at 187. Devin Toner believes Ireland dispelled the All Blacks mystique in Chicago, planting doubts in New Zealand minds ahead of Saturdays Dublin rematch.Ireland claimed their first-ever win over New Zealand in 111 years of trying at Soldier Field on Nov. 5, with lock Toner hopeful that historic victory carried with it some vital myth-busting.New Zealand are gunning for revenge at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, with Toner challenging Ireland to seize every shred of mental edge from that 40-29 triumph in the USA.Everyones beatable, it is only 15 men against 15 men, said Toner. Its a good thing that we won in Chicago; I didnt want to keep going on having never won against them.Hopefully it removes the mystique a little. But while we know that it was a great performance by us, I think they did have an off day as well.There were a lot of uncharacteristic mistakes from them in Chicago and we know it wont be the same this week. Its going to be a completely different challenge this weekend.I think how we did so well in the last game was pressure: we built it through getting pressure off their lineout, getting up off their line, making them knock the ball on and putting that little bit of doubt in their head.I think that doubt and thaat seed is sown now. Nike Air Huarache Sconti. They know were a good team and we can get in their face. If they start sticking passes and getting the offloads theyre a different machine. But hopefully were in the back of their heads now.One man who did shine in Chicago was Robbie Henshaw, who is fast developing the leadership drive to become a genuine Test match superstar, according to his Ireland centre partner Jared Payne.Henshaw truly came of Test match age in the Windy City and ploughed over for the fifth and decisive try at Soldier Field.Payne said: I think hes getting better and better, the way he conducts himself off the pitch now, hes become more of a leader than when he first started out.He backs himself a lot more now. Hes got the physical attributes to become a superstar, and the more confidence he gets in himself off the pitch and the more he starts to lead people its going to come out more in his game, and I think youre slowly starting to see that.Hopefully that continues: because when youve got someone playing that well beside you its pretty easy almost to just jump on a free ride off him. 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 ' ' '
