IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Iowa power forward Dale Jones has been granted an extra year of eligibility. Puma Fenty By Rihanna .Jones tore a ligament in his right knee for the second time in three years in December after playing just six games. He was averaging 5.5 rebounds and three rebounds for the Hawkeyes.Jones, a junior college transfer, is expected to give Iowas thin frontcourt a major boost over the next two seasons.

Australia took seven sailing crews to Rio; six made their medal races, and four won medals, in a strike rate that leaves other big squads in their wake. Adidas Originals Superstar Sale . Only the swimming team won more medals from vastly more chances.If we can come to an environment like this and convert essentially four medal chances ... thats a pretty damn good outcome, Australian Sailing team leader Peter Conde said.The medal run was four years in the making.We had our first trip here six months before the last Olympics, Conde said. We started in April 2012; we had the first sailors training here in November 2012.All four of Australias expected medal chances finished in the top two in Rio.Mat Belcher and Will Ryan, who won silver in the mens 470, made 10 trips to Rio to learn the complex conditions.Jason Waterhouse and Lisa Darmanin, who won silver in the Nacra 17, told a similar story.Weve spent almost six months in Rio sailing in these waters just to get acclimatised to the conditions, Waterhouse said.Rios complex weather and water patterns meant some Australian favourites faced a fight just to stay in touch with the leaders, however.Tom Burton won gold in the Laser but only after a one in 10 tactical move on the starting line came off to perfection.And Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen in the 49er were unable to get in front of the New Zealand crew, who claimed gold ahead of Australias silver.But the medals werent the only measure of success.Jake Lilley and Ashley Stoddart made the Finn and Laser Radial medal race, respectively, and both 23-year-olds showed the potential to push for better results in future Games.If they are selected for Tokyo 2020, they will know the Australian Sailing Team has already put in the work to see them succeed.That started again in April. Our first trip to Tokyo [was] in April, Conde said. Adidas Superstar Shoes Sale .

Ravindra Jadejas press conference was hilarious. Nike Air Max 90 Womens Cheap . It will most certainly be lost in translation, but it is worth reproducing it for the benefit of those who understand Hindi in its entire colour because what he said was instructive.He was talking about why India didnt ever feel they were in threat of ceding the advantage despite there being three partnerships in New Zealand innings, especially the 124-run stand between Kane Williamson and Tom Latham. Ab turning track pe ek partnership hoti hai. Uske baad naya batsman koi bhi jayega, uske liye itna footmarks dekh ke udhar unki…And now realising where he was going, Jadeja stopped. What usually follows this is beeped on TV. Or asterisked as its loose translation in text here will be. What Jadeja meant was one big partnership is always expected but it is no big deal on such turning tracks because when a new batsman comes in and he sees the footmarks and the rough, he goes…Thats where he stopped himself. What usually follows in Hindi can be loosely - and very loosely indeed - translated to, He goes holy f***. Had he said the whole sentence it wouldnt have been funny. The fact that he stopped himself was what made it hilarious. He stopped talking clichés and let himself go in a language he was most comfortable with, but also had the awareness to stop himself when he was about to say something he shouldnt be.The way Jadeja spoke of how the match went showed the confidence India went into the match with. New Zealand tried their best, but in hindsight did they really stand a chance? The batsmen couldnt pick from the hand which balls were going to turn and which were going straight on. Loose balls were few and far between. Fielding, especially catching, was at its best. On such a turning track six wickets were lbw, which in itself is testament to how accurate Jadeja and R Ashwin were.Jadeja said the accuracy bit was discussed with both Anil Kumble and Ashwin. He [Kumble] told me to go wide on the crease and bowl around the sixth stump for the left-hand batsmen because there was rough there. He told me to target putting as many balls as possible in that rough because from there, some balls were turning and some were going straight. That would have created doubts in the batsmens minds, so thats what we spoke of.Ashwin and I spoke of bowling at the stumps. Adjust our lines so that after the turn the ball ends up on the stumps. We knew well get maximum chances if we kept the threat of lbw or bowled alive. There wasnt much turn from the stumps so our initial plan was to string together maiden overs. We needed to give up fewer runs and that would also create pressure on them. Finally we executed our plan.Jadeja also said they were aware of the lack of experience in the New Zealand batting. He said they knew there werent many who could play a long chanceless innings.Jadejas biggest threat on such turning tracks is the straighter balls that he picks. New Zealand have said they dont pick him from the hand, and they try to play him off the pitch. Jadeja wasnt giving out his secrets although it is quite possible that on turning tracks it is the natural variation that carries balls straight. In the process he did compare this Kanpur track to the under-prepared tracks he grew up playing on in Saurashtra.We didnt have very well prepared grounds and pitches growing up. These are the kinds Ive been brought up on, the kinds where there were no groundsmen and we were just practising, Jadeja said. The facilities we had were of that kind, so having played on such pitches, Ive got an idea of how to bowl, which areas to bowl on, what speed to bowl at. From my childhood to Under-17, Under-19 till now, Ive played on turners or unprepared pitches. Having played so much on them, Ive got an idea now. Nike Air Max 95 Womens Uk . It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night. Nike Air Max 95 Sale Uk . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable.

The 10th-ranked German improved her record in finals to 3-5. . The All-Pro lineman got the leg bent under him while trying to make a tackle during the first half of a 22-20 overtime loss at Miami on Thursday night. The medical staff initially thought hed torn the ligament, and the test a day later in Cincinnati confirmed it. The first time San Diego State was nationally ranked this season, the Aztecs responded by playing their worst game of the season.San Diego State is now back in the rankings at No. 24 and will seek a better result when it travels to play Wyoming in Mountain West play on Saturday (3:30 p.m., CBS Sports Network).The earlier ranking marked the first time the Aztecs had been nationally ranked since 1995. Living up to the billing proved difficult as South Alabama rolled to a 42-24 win over San Diego State.The Aztecs quickly fell out of the rankings and have since responded with six consecutive victories. This time, the players feel more comfortable having nationally ranked tagged to their program.That was just a tough game. We had some bad luck in that one, senior defensive end Kyle Kelley said of the South Alabama loss at Tuesdays press conference. We dont take into account the rankings that much. Were just worried about the (Wyoming) game itself. I dont really care if we are ranked right now. It all depends if we are ranked at the end of the year. Thats my main goal.San Diego State (9-1, 6-0) has already clinched the Pacific Division of the Mountain West and will play in the conference title game. Continue to win and the Aztecs will have a chance at landing a spot in the Cotton Bowl.Aztecs coach Rocky Long said those goals mean more to him than being ranked.Our team wants to win the conference championship, Long said. Im sure they are happy that we are back in the Top 25, even though I told them that it doesnt matter until the end of the season.Our motivation is that we want to win the rest of the games because there are a lot of good things that can happen after the season if we can win them all. We might get to play in a New Years Day bowl game, wed be the conference champions. There are incentives out there.Wyoming has its own dose of incentive this week as it continues pursuit of winning the conferences Mountain Division.The Cowboys (7-3, 5-1) are tied for first place with Boise State and New Mexico but hurt their chances with last Saturdays 69-66 triple-overtime loss to UNLV.It was a game that came down to a play here or there, Wyoming coach Craig Bohl said. There certainly were a lot of plays in the ballgame -- some really good and some nnot so good. Curry 2 Under Armour. I think its important that we move forward and hang together as a football team. And as coaches, there are a lot of things that weve got to clean up within a short week.One area in which the Cowboys will need to be strong is defending the run as San Diego State rushed for a school-record 474 yards in last Saturdays 46-16 victory over Nevada.Aztecs senior running back Donnel Pumphrey leads the nation with 1,779 rushing yards and moved into fourth place in FBS history with 6,051 yards.Pumphrey needs 32 yards to move past third-place Tony Dorsett (Pittsburgh) and is also moving within range of second-place Ricky Williams (6,279) of Texas and record-holder Ron Dayne (6,397) of Wisconsin.He also is tied for ninth on the all-time rushing touchdowns list with 59.Pumphrey rushed for 198 yards in the victory over Nevada and wasnt even the leading rusher on his team. Junior Rashaad Penny topped him by rushing for a career-best 208 yards.Wyoming also features a standout back in junior Brian Hill, who ranks third in the nation with 1,417 yards. Hill stands third in Mountain West history with 3,844 career rushing yards but could find running room to be a challenge against the Aztecs, who rank second nationally in rushing defense (86.4 yards per game).Cowboys sophomore quarterback Josh Allen passed for a career-best 334 yards and four touchdowns in the loss to UNLV -- which was the third-highest scoring game in FBS history. Allen has passed for 2,218 yards and 21 touchdowns against 10 interceptions.Senior wideout Tanner Gentry is also having solid season with 53 receptions for 962 yards and a conference-leading 11 touchdowns.Sophomore free safety Andrew Wingard leads the Wyoming defense with 99 tackles. Sophomore strong safety Marcus Epps, sophomore cornerback Antonio Hull and redshirt freshman weakside linebacker Logan Wilson share the team leadership with three interceptions apiece.Standout San Diego State senior cornerback Damontae Kazee has five interceptions this season and holds the school career mark of 15.The Aztecs rushed for 293 yards while rolling to a 38-3 victory over Wyoming last season. 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 ' ' '
CHICAGO -- Nearly a year after throwing a no-hitter at Wrigley Field, Cole Hamels was masterful again in his return to the famed ballpark. .Hamels pitched eight dominant innings, and the Texas Rangers stopped a four-game slide by topping the Chicago Cubs 4-1 Sunday in a matchup of division leaders.I got 10 days of rest. You get a whole week of rest, I guess that helps, Hamels said. I know its the second half, want to start off right. This is now the go time.Hamels (10-2) struck out his first six batters. He fanned seven overall and gave up just an unearned run on four hits.The fastball, the cutter allowed him to get to the changeup today, and he was really exceptional, Rangers manager Jeff Banister said.Last summer, the lefty threw a no-hitter and struck out 13 at Wrigley in his final start for Philadelphia. He was then traded to the Rangers.Ive always enjoyed coming to Wrigley Field, Hamels said. Growing up as a kid watching it on WGN, its just a great ballpark to come play at. The fans are great here. Im just going out enjoying the moment.Sam Dyson struck out three in the ninth for his 19th save in 21 chances.Ian Desmond homered and Robinson Chirinos drove in two runs as Texas avoided a three-game sweep. The Cubs had won three in a row.John Lackey (7-6) allowed four runs and six hits in eight innings as his winless streak reached seven starts on a warm afternoon with the wind blowing out. He is 14-16 in 41 starts against Texas, the team hes faced most often in his career.The story really today was Cole. He pitched really well, Lackey said. We werent able to do anything against him. I was honestly pretty happy about the way I threw the ball. Threw eight innings and definitely not a good day to pitch.Hamels fanned the side in the first two innings.I was able to execute pretty well, Hamels said. Sometimes things just work enough to miss the barrels. If you can go out and really establish the strike zone early, they cant get as comfortable.The streak ended when Matt Szczur popped out and Albert Almora Jr. reached on third baseman Adrian Beltres error in the third. Javier Baez doubled home a run.Elvis Andrus RBI single and Chirinos sacrifice fly put the Rangers ahead in the second. Almora made a leaping catch in center field to rob Chirinos of extra bases.Chirinos hit an RBI double after Lackey walked the first two batters in the fourth.Desmond led off the eighth with his 16th home run.The Cubs got back-to-back singles to start the bottom of the seventh before a double play and groundout ended the rally.Cole did exactly what we needed today, and we got hits when they counted and we were able to get the win, first baseman Prince Fielder said. Good defense, great win all around.We needed it really bad. Weve been struggling as a team.TRAINERS ROOMRangers: OF Shin-Soo Choo (back) was out of the lineup for a third straight game, but Banister said the team isnt considering putting him on the disabled list just yet. It still seems to bother him when hes throwing, Banister said. . RHP Kyle Lohse (strained oblique) threw a pain-free bullpen session Saturday. Banister expects him to start Tuesday at the Angels.DRAMALackey argued with home plate umpire Cory Blaser after the top of the sixth before right fielder Jason Heyward got between them. Cubs manager Joe Maddon then addressed Blaser. Lackey declined to go into details of the chat.Theyre talking about Christmas cards for next year, Maddon joked. Just let John vent a little bit. Hes fine.UP NEXTRangers: RHP A.J. Griffin (3-1, 3.81 ERA) is scheduled to start Mondays opener of a three-game series at the Angels, who are expected to start RHP Nick Tropeano (3-2, 3.12).Cubs: LHP Jon Lester (9-4, 3.01) is to start Mondays opener of a three-game set against the visiting Mets and LHP Steven Matz (7-5, 3.38).

Barcelona take on Real Madrid live on Sky Sports 2 HD this Saturday, in their first match since Cruyff lost his long-term battle with lung cancer at the age of 68.Luis Enrique and Zinedine Zidane have Champions League games against Wolfsburg and Atletico Madrid respectively to prepare for the following week, but Gibson believes neither side will consider resting players for this huge clash. Both sides have delivered their own tributes to Cruyff this week and the news, which shook the world of football, is set to add an extra dimension to El Clasico.It gives it a new slant to the game, Gibson told the Sky Sports La Liga Weekly podcast. La Liga Weekly- March 28 Listen to this weeks podcast on Cruyff, El Clasico and more. We were looking at this game prior to the death of Johan Cruyff, Real Madrid have got Wolfsburg, Barcelona play Atletico Madrid, you look at the league table, which suggests that Barcelona could rest one or two players for the Real Madrid game, of course they wouldnt want to lose. Johan Cruyff lost his battle with cancer at the age of 68 Now, it is going to be a massive occasion and I think you can look at the game totally different now. The strongest team from Barcelona will play.A talking point ahead of the game is Barcelonas goalkeeping situation. Marc-Andre ter Stegen suggested his future at the club was in doubt due to a lack of playing time.Ter Stegen said: If the situation remains the way it is at the moment, however, then were definitely going to have to talk - theres no avoiding that. Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, currently on international duty with Germany, has suggested he may have to seek a move away from Barcelona However, Claudio Bravo is currently first choice keeper at the club despite being 32-years-old and his excellent form since arriving at the Nou Camp is signalled by the fact that he won the Zamora Trophy for conceding the fewest goals in the Spanish top flight last term.It is going to be an interesting situation, Gibson added.The choice is one where there is a near 10 year difference between the ages, Claudio Bravo and Ter Stegen.Do you stick with the 32-year-old who hasnt llet them down, hes been super, faultless since he joined the club, or the 23-year-old for the long term who has got potential, add into the equation speculation in the Spanish press that they are looking at Courtois. It does appear as if there is a big question mark over the goalkeeper for Barcelona next season. The future of Barcelona looks bright as their Under-10s team beat Espanyol in the final of the La Liga Promises Iscar Cup Real Madrid also have a few selection issues to iron out with Sergio Ramos struggling with a back complaint alongside the need to get the best out of their front three of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo, who have failed to win an El Clasico when they have all started together.Gibson believes Zidanes team are the perfect opponents for Barcelona on Saturday as Real look to close the 10-point gap between the two clubs. Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale have never beaten Barcelona when they have all started together I think it is fitting that they are playing Real Madrid, who have behaved impeccably as well with their tributes to Barcelona and to Johan Cruyff.I just hope we have a real top class game that is fitting of the memory of Johan Cruyff. I think that is possible because of the league table positioning, the pressure is off both teams slightly, so I am really hoping for a good game this weekend.Watch Barcelona v Real Madrid live on Sky Sports 2 HD this Saturday from 7pm.

On the eve of their first match during their previous visit to India, New Zealand coach Mike Hesson asked the curator in Nagpur what the pitch was expected to do. Cheap NFL Jerseys China . Hesson says he was told it was a hard and bouncy pitch. New Zealand went ahead and left out Tim Southee and Trent Boult, played three spinners, attacked the new ball because they knew the old ball would be impossible to go after, scored just 126, but their spinners delivered them a 47-run win. New Zealands reading of the conditions, and then adapting to them, were big reasons behind their unbeaten run in the league stages of the World T20.That was Twenty20. This is Test cricket. New Zealand will draw confidence from that showing, but they wont be deluding themselves based on the World T20. This three-Test series has all the makings of this groups biggest test. New Zealand have only ever won two Tests in India, and may need to double that tally to win this series. But there is anticipation around them, mostly because of what they did in the World T20, in particular their two spinners whose performances suggested they could translate their promise into longer forms. Now, Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi are joined by Mark Craig.Never in recent memory has more been expected of a New Zealand tour of India. Never in recent memory have India looked this dominant at home. India have three spinners with much more pedigree and experience of these conditions. Ever since India decided to play on pitches where the ball starts turning early and turns big, beating them in a home Test series has become arguably the biggest challenge in world cricket.With cricket being a game of conditions, it couldnt be more loaded against New Zealand. The only preparation they have had in the move from their tracks to this intense, relentless trial by spin is two training sessions in Delhi, a three-day game on a flat track against unthreatening spinners, and two more training sessions in Kanpur. The heat is stifling. There is high humidity and no breeze in Kanpur right now.The curator at Green Park has said the turn wont be as alarming as it was in Nagpur, but the pitch looks really dry and has cracks. In unusual scenes two days before the Test, the groundstaff asked some net bowlers to bowl on the match pitch. It is technically allowed - the pitch is handed over to the match referee on the morning of the Test - but this is hardly ever done. The poor rating for the Nagpur pitch after the Test against South Africa last year plays on the minds of groundsmen now. There were no puffs of dust, which relieved them. However, there was turn. Dont be surprised either if the spinners business area is drier and rougher than the rest of the pitch, negating Neil Wagners bounce, and accentuating the turn.He hasnt told us it is hard and bouncy as the Nagpur groundsman did, Hesson joked when asked about any conversations he might have had with the groundstaff here.Hesson is not surprised by what he has seen. Unless some grass grows over the next two days, there will be plenty of assistance for the spinners, he said. I think the pitch will deteriorate, as it should. Spin will play a massive part, as will reverse swing. So there are no surprises here.Hesson knows knowing what to expect is different from reacting to it. If one jumps at them, Ravindra Jadeja will keep firing in that general area all day with slight variation of angle, and let the pitch do the rest. R Ashwin will add dip to it. He will swerve it with the new ball. Amit Mishra will add the legspinners X-factor. There will be catchers around, there will be deep fielders to choke easy runs, and there will be no relenting from the heat and humidity. Not in Kanpur and Kolkata at least.The ability to respond with a clear mind and quick feet when the ball starts jumping and staying low comes with solid defence and lots of practice playing on such tracks. Knowing the international schedules today, Hesson said this is possibly the best preparation his side could have had. He has now put it down to the ability to adapt.The conditions here are slightly different than they were in Delhi, Hesson said. Its up to today and tomorrow to make sure we adapt the best we can. And we know even during the game the pitch is going to change, so we have to keep adjusting.Hesson summed up the dual challenge of playing India in these conditions by saying that you have to prepare for the worst, but, at the same time, guard against jumping at shadows, by building it up too much and failing to recognise easier conditions when they come their way.We have watched the Test matches against South Africa, absolutely, Hesson said. We saw the conditions in that series, and they were challenging. There is no doubt about that. If you prepare, over-train in terms of preparing for those conditions and then you get something slightly better, then thats great. You have got to prepare for the harshest conditions and see how it goes from there.I think you can jump at shadows at times [if you prepare for the worst]. I think you need to adapt to what you are confronted with. We have got an idea how we think how the surface might play, but it might be quite different. We are capable of adapting.Adapting quickly won them games in the World T20, but there wont be any quick wins here. We have won two Test matches in our history here, Hesson said. So we know it is a tough place to come and win, as it is for any touring side. And India are playing good cricket at the moment, but we have got a group of cricketers who will be highly competitive. Thats our challenge - to be highly competitive and stay in the game for long periods of time. Then, anything can happen.There is no set formula to beat India in India in this mood, but England showed it can be done if you have four attributes: a solid defensive batsman in Alastair Cook, who showed to the rest that it was possible to bat, a maverick in Kevin Pietersen, who could drive the nail in, two spinners in Monty Panesar and Graeme Swann, who were accurate and quick, and reverse swing in James Anderson. Lower-order runs can be a big factor as South Africa learned in their defeat despite having reduced India to 120-odd for 6 on more than one occasion.New Zealand have a defensive batsman in Williamson, they have a potential maverick if Ross Taylor can have a big series, they have spinners and the variety of spinners, although unproven at this level, and they have the possibility of reverse swing. They bat deep. If all, or most these factors click, they can take games deep. Then, anything can happen. Cheap Football Jerseys China .

LOS ANGELES -- The Rams were a certifiable hit in their return to Los Angeles for the first time in nearly 22 years. Now if they could just score a touchdown.They have yet to find the end zone since leaving St. Louis, yet still managed to win their regular-season home debut on Sunday, beating the Seattle Seahawks 9-3 on Greg Zuerleins three field goals -- the longest a 47-yarder in the fourth quarter.The Rams (1-1) were shut out in a 28-0 loss at San Francisco in their season opener.Last week, to put it simple, we got embarrassed, wide receiver Kenny Britt said. And so to come back like this is good for morale and good for our confidence.Plenty of penalties slowed down the game for the announced crowd of 91,046 on a searing day at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, where the Rams marked the long-awaited occasion by wearing blue-and-gold throwback uniforms for their regular-season home debut.You most definitely want to set the tone, especially at home, safety Mark Barron said. This is what we do at home. When we come home, we win.With field goals accounting for all the offense, it was hardly the high-scoring show Los Angeles sports fans are known to crave.At times, the dull roar of chatter was the loudest sound from the crowd until the fourth quarter when they were on their feet cheering the Rams defense.Alec Ogletree recovered a fumble by Seattles Christine Michael at the Los Angeles 29 with 57 seconds left in the game, ending the Seahawks last scoring bid.It kind of happened all so fast, Ogletree said. I was kind of just roaming the field. I dropped like 30 yards deep, which I dont even think I was supposed to do. I just saw him (Russell Wilson) check it down, I just ran it down.The drive included an incomplete pass from Wilson and a false start penalty on the Seahawks.It was just a great play by those guys, Michael said. They played a tremendous game. I just got to do better, hold on to the ball in those situations.Barron had 11 tackles and Ogletree added eight to lead the Rams defense.Seattle racked up 10 penalties for 114 yards; the Rams had nine penalties for 78 yards.The teams put on a defensive slugfest, with passes getting broken up in the end zone, offensive drives ending in punts and neither quarterback airing it out much.Wilson was 22 of 35 for 254 yards, getting sacked twice. He sprained his right ankle in last weeks win over Miami.Rams starter Case Keenum was 18 of 30 for 239 yards. He was sacked three times.I made sure as Im running out just to savor that moment, Keenum said about emerging from the tunnel to flames and fireworks. Im going to remember it forever. It might not have been the prettiest game, but it was a lot of funn. Cheap Jerseys Authentic. The victory extended the Rams recent dominance against their NFC West rival. Theyve won four of their past five against the Seahawks, including both games last season. The Rams defensive line has sacked Wilson 18 times in the past five meetings.We got to see them twice a year, Barron said, so we want to establish that and let them know we are coming.Zuerlein got the Rams on the board in the first quarter with a 39-yard field goal. The Seahawks (1-1) tied it on a 23-yard field goal by Steven Hauschka in the second.Zuerlein put the Rams in front 6-3 on a 20-yarder with 1:04 left before halftime. Early in the fourth, he made it 9-3 on his longest kick of the game.RED HOTThe temperature hit 88 degrees under cloudless skies and lead singer Anthony Kiedis stripped off his No. 16 Jared Goff jersey during the Red Hot Chili Peppers pregame concert in the west end zone. A group of Rams Hall of Famers, including Jackie Slater, Marshall Faulk, Eric Dickerson and Jack Youngblood helped light the Coliseums torch, which also burned when the stadium hosted the 1932 and 1984 Olympics.STILL WAITINGGoff, the No. 1 overall pick in this years draft, was promoted to backup for the game after being the inactive third-stringer in the Rams opening-week loss. Goff practiced with the first-team offense more often during the week, but has yet to make his regular-season debut.HE SAID ITI like touchdowns, but I love winning, Keenum said.BACK HOMESeattle coach Pete Carroll returned to the Coliseum, where he oversaw Southern Californias football dynasty for nine years that included two national championships before jumping to the NFL.

NEW ORLEANS -- Its Holiday season in New Orleans all right. Nike Free Rn Distance Dames . One of the Pelicans primary players is back and already helping them win.Jrue Holiday scored 21 points in his first action this season, Anthony Davis had his latest stellar outing with 38 points, nine rebounds and four blocks, and the Pelicans beat the Portland Trail Blazers 113-101 on Friday night.I head a great first game, Holiday said. The thrill was there. It felt good, being a part of a team.Holiday made his season debut after missing the first 12 games to care for his wife, retired soccer star Lauren Holiday, who had brain surgery last month only weeks after giving birth to the couples first child, a daughter.He wound up playing just more than 23 minutes hitting an array of jumpers, including a 3, as well as driving floaters and layups. He finished with seven assists, none more crowd-pleasing than his crisp bounce-pass to a cutting Davis, who finished the play with a thunderous two-handed dunk.Holiday had been in constant contact with coaches and studying game video while on leave, so he wasnt surprised that he quickly got into the rhythm of the offense.There are some new faces around here, but at the same time its the same system, Holiday said. The part that I was really worried about was conditioning. I really thought that I was behind. Maybe I was just excited for this game. I felt like I could play forever.Terrence Jones added 15 points, and Tim Frazier had 12 for the Pelicans. New Orleans built the lead up to 20 in the fourth quarter and cruised to the finished. Theyve won three of five after an 0-8 start.Damian Lillard scored 27 points, and CJ McCollum 24 for Portland, which has lost three straight to fall to 7-7. Mason Plumlee added 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Trail Blazers, who never got closer than eight points in the second half.We obviously are not playing the best basketball right now, but we are still .500, said Portland forward Ed Davis, who had 11 rebounds in a starting role that required him to attempt to defend his Pelicans namesake. Its not like we are on an eight-game losing streak.We are not in panic mode, he added. Well be all right, man.TIP-INSTrail Blazers: Maurice Harkless scored 10 points, but went 2 of 7 from 3-point range, from where the Blazers went 12 of 34 as a team. ... Portland has scored 100 or more points in 12 of its first 14 games. ... The Blazers, which lost 126-109 in Houston on Thursday night, dropped to 3-4 on the road.Pelicans: Alvin Gentry reached his 800th career game as an NBA head coach. ... New Orleans won its second straight home game after starting 0-5 on its own floor. ... Center Alexis Ajinca sat out with a sore left shoulder.HOLIDAY CHEERThe crowd bellowed, Jruuuuue! as Holiday checked in, and he wasted no time getting involved, assisting on Jones layup the first time he handled the ball on the offensive end.Within four minutes on the court, Holiday scored five points to go with a rebound and assists, and even a block on Noah Vonlehs dunk attempt.Anthony Davis called Holiday instant offense.He comes in, makes great reads, makes plays for himself or others -- and also does it on the defensive end, Davis said. In my eyes, hes one of the top point guards in the league and it showed.DOMINANT DAVISDavis was making shots from all over the court, hitting a pair of 3s to go with usual leaners, floaters, layups and mid-range jumpers.The Pelicans made their first significant push in the final three minutes of the first half. Portland was down 51-47 after Plumlees 16-foot jumper, but Davis responded with a 16-footer of his own that sparked a 13-4 run to close out the half. Davis added six more points during the spurt, hitting a jumper, floater and spinning a reverse layup off the glass with McCollum climbing on his shoulders. Davis also rejected his third Lillard shot of the half, and New Orleans led 64-51 as the horn sounded to end the second quarter.NEW LOOKHoliday wore goggles as a precaution after missing the last nine games of last season because of an inadvertent elbow he took to the head, fracturing his orbital eye wall.He said he hasnt decided yet how long hell wear them.We won so Im probably going to play in them Saturday night, he said. I think I look dorky. Ive already been made fun of by half of the team. Thats OK as long as we get the win.UP NEXTTrail Blazers: Visit Brooklyn on Sunday.Pelicans: Host Charlotte on Saturday night. Nike Free Rn Distance 2 . -- If Henry Burris has his way, he will be the starting quarterback to lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats back to the Grey Cup next year. Nike Free Run 2 Wit . According to a report from the Winnipeg Free Press, the Bombers will name Acting GM Kyle Walters to the post full time. . The Croatian served 21 aces and hit 42 winners against Sijsling, who double-faulted to give Cilic a 4-3 lead in the deciding set. "All the players, they know me and they were really happy to see me and they were really happy that this is over for me," Cilic said. NEW YORK -- Angelique Kerber probably doesnt consider herself a late bloomer, but the meaty metrics of tennis suggest otherwise.The No. 2-seeded German could depart the National Tennis Center in two weeks as the WTAs No. 1-ranked player -- making her, at 28, the oldest woman ever to claim the top spot for the first time.Kerber sprinted into the second round Monday when Polona Hercog retired with a combination of illness and heat stroke after losing the first seven games in Arthur Ashe Stadium. Hercog is now 1-18 versus top-10 opponents.Serena Williams, who is defending 460 more points here than Kerber, essentially needs to last longer than Kerber in the draw to retain that No. 1 ranking. Jennifer Capriati was 25 years and 6 months old when she ascended to the No. 1 ranking for the first time, in 2001. Kerber, incredibly, would be more than three years older.A few more takeaways from the match:Startlingly swift beginning: Kerber came into New York following a pair of difficult losses -- to Monica Puig in the gold-medal match in Rio and to Karolina Pliskova in the Cincinnati final -- but there was no hangover here. Kerber won 30 of the abbreviated matchs 39 points, in a tidy total of 33 minutes. Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit Heren. If theres pressure, shes not feeling it: Kerber could have lifted that No. 1 ranking with a title in Cincinnati but looked tired in losing to Pliskova. In her pre-tournament news conference, Kerber said she embraced questions about taking Williams ranking. On court after her win Monday, she reinforced that idea. Lets see if the day will come someday, she said. I will be really happy. Im really trying to focus here, win all the matches, and then well see.Recent history means nothing: Believe it or not, the unseeded Hercog had won two of the previous three matches against Kerber. The Slovenian, ranked No. 120 among WTA players, scored victories in Warsaw in 2010 and Monterrey a year later -- both in straight sets. Kerber now holds a 4-2 head-to-head edge.No service issues: Kerber was all over Hercogs serve, breaking her in each of three opportunities. The German won 10 of 17 points on Hercogs first serve and was 4-for-4 in the second. On her own serve, Kerber won 16 of 18 points. 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 ' ' '

Today, we look back at Boston Strong - a citys recovery from tragedy. Onitsuka Tiger Store . Hey!" The lower tier of the School End of Queens Park Rangers Loftus Road was packed solid with a very festive-sounding Chelsea choral section in this particular part of South Africa Road London, W12. . Toronto has dropped games to Indiana and Miami since a five-game winning streak and closed out a three-game road trip at 1-2. Certainly the biggest shock of the day Saturday, the last big day of prep races for next months Breeders Cup, was Tepins loss in the First Lady at Keeneland. But it wasnt just that Tepin could finish only second at 2-5 that was so surprising, it was also the manner in which the First Lady upset was sprung.Photo Call, of all horses, bounded to the early lead and quickly dared everyone else in the First Lady field to catch her. It wasnt like Photo Call hadnt shown speed before. She had. This year. In all of her recent races. But those races in which Photo Call showed speed were all slow-paced, extended-distance events, most of which she didnt even run particularly well. So when Photo Call opened a sizeable early lead through a second quarter-mile in a fast 23.19, you could be forgiven if you were wondering what happened to the real Photo Call, and who is this imposter?Yet even when Photo Call turned for home with a gigantic lead that seemed in double-digit territory, I still kind of thought that Photo Call would tire and Tepin would catch her, just as Tepin did last March in the Hillsborough when Isabella Sings tried the same, front-running gambit. Only this time, Photo Call was a much better horse than Isabella Sings (even if she hadnt shown it in a while), and Tepin wasnt going to have her tank emptied in the stretch, not with the Breeders Cup just four weeks away.Photo Call held on to win by almost three lengths. And this was the first time Tepin was beaten by open lengths since August 2014, a staggering 26 months ago.Tepins connections were up front beforehand about not wanting to take too much out of Tepin on Saturday, which is why she went in the First Lady in the first place instead of the Shadwell Turf Mile against males. They didnt want her to have to run an A race, and she didnt.That said, this is now two straight races from Tepin since her historic victory at Royal Ascot that were not A performances. She did beat males winning last months Woodbine Mile, but that was not Tepin at her top. I know very well to never, ever underestimate a champion, and Tepin is absolutely all of that. But this is something to think about as she now targets a defense of her title in the Breeders Cup Mile.The irony of Saturday is Tepin lost against a female, and Miss Temple City prevailed over males in the richer Shadwell Turf Mile, a race she ran in, in part, to avoid having to face Tepin.This is the second time this year Miss Temple City opted for a Grade 1 start at Keeneland against males instead of taking on Tepin. She won the first one, too - last Aprils Makers 46 Mile the day before Tepin won the Jenny Wiley.Miss Temple Citys connections might consider sending a very nice gift basket to Tepins people. But dont make the mistake of taking Miss Temple City as a mere lucky opportunist. She is very good - she ran much better than her two losses at Saratoga would suggest on paper - and she beat a stronger group of males in the Shadwell than she did in the Makers 46.But for me, the Shadwell was all about Ironicuss fast closing second. This was Ironicuss first start since his troubled-trip second to nonee other than Flintshire in the Manhattan on Belmont Stakes Day due to foot issues, and he might have gotten up had not an opponent shifted out in front of him in mid-stretch. Onitsuka Tiger Clearance. In any case, Ironicus is now primed for a peak performance in the Breeders Cup Mile, and I think he is very dangerous in that spot.One other standout turf female who raced on Saturday must be mentioned here, and that is Lady Eli. Lady Eli, so breathtaking in the first phase of her racing career, made it all the way back from the scourge of laminitis to win the Flower Bowl. And now she sets her sights on the Breeders Cup Filly & Mare Turf, for which she is Americas top hope.This is just a remarkable story. Remarkable, too, was the rousing applause fans in attendance at Belmont Park on Saturday gave Lady Eli on her return to the winners circle. Downstate New York racing fans throw receptions such as this around like sewer covers. So it was great to see, and thoroughly deserved.Saturday notes** Sadly, the devaluation of the once-great Jockey Club Gold Cup continued Saturday with Hoppertunitys decision over Effinex and three others.I dont want to knock Hoppertunity. Hes had the tall order of facing California Chrome, Beholder, and Shared Belief in several of his races and, like many others, he was simply not up to the task. Still, Hoppertunitys only victory in his 13 starts immediately preceding the Gold Cup was a nose decision in the San Antonio last February over Imperative, another who rarely wins. Lets just say this Gold Cup was not a key prep for the Breeders Cup Classic.** I liked both preps for the Breeders Cup Juvenile - the Champagne and the Breeders Futurity. The Champagne was a terrific race. Practical Joke got up by a nose despite a bad start over Syndergaard, who was admirably game after setting a scorching pace and fighting back after getting hooked by Practical Joke in mid-stretch. These are two fine colts.Classic Empire also showed a lot of substance winning the Breeders Futurity decisively. Because he wheeled and lost his rider at the start of the Hopeful (won by Practical Joke), the Breeders Futurity was Classic Empires first representative start in three months, and he was stretching out to two turns for the first time, to boot. Moreover, Classic Empire was wide throughout, a concession of ground that would have been significant in almost any situation, but one that was even more noteworthy considering the inside appeared to be very live Saturday on Keenelands main track. This was a very strong effort.** On the face of it, the Frizette seemed like a strongly run race, with Yellow Agate getting up by a head over Libbys Tail, with a chasm of more than nine lengths back to the third finisher. The clock says otherwise, however. Yellow Agates winning Beyer Figure was a modest 77, only marginally better than the even more modest 73 Beyer Dancing Rags was assigned for winning Fridays Alcibiades.For the record, Classic Empire and Practical Joke each earned 88 Beyers. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

A lot of people said the boys walked off but some of us clapped Cameron off.There are no hard feelings Im sure. Once you cross that white line for 80 minutes we hate them but when you get off the field that is all overWe all get along. It is just that the media have to write about something. I dont see why it is going to change now.Wests Tigers captain Woods has been mentioned as a leading contender to succeed the retired Paul Gallen as Blues skipper next season.It would be the best ever but we have seven weeks left here with the Tigers and that is all I am focused on, Woods said. Tom Heaton Jersey .

Today, we look back at Boston Strong - a citys recovery from tragedy. West Indies have dropped Kieron Pollard and Denesh Ramdin from their ODI squad for next months tri-series in Zimbabwe, which also features Sri Lanka. Courtney Browne, the head of West Indies selection committee, informed Pollard and Ramdin about their axing via email.The emails, accessed by ESPNcricinfo, were sent by Browne earlier this week. Brownes message to both players was straightforward, saying they had been dropped and telling them they were free to seek clarification from him or the selection panel if they wanted. Considering the squad has not been officially announced yet, ESPNcricinfo sought a comment from the WICB on Wednesday, but the board did not respond.Both Pollard and Ramdin had poor returns in the recently concluded limited-overs series against Pakistan in the UAE. Pollard managed 43 runs in the three T20s, and bowled two overs, going wicketless. In the three-match ODI series, which West Indies lost 3-0, Pollard scored 42 runs at an average of 14.00. He took one wicket in the 12 overs he bowled across the three matches.Ramdin, who was recalled to the ODI squad, compiled 79 runs at 26.33 in the three ODIs and did not feature in the T20s. Brownes selection panel had dropped Ramdin from the squad for the four-Test series at home against India earlierr this year. Raheem Sterling Jersey. Ramdin made the news public on Twitter before the squad was announced, and was subsequently sanctioned by the WICB.Ramdin has endured difficult times in the past 18 months. Despite helping West Indies level the Test series 1-all at home against England, Ramdin was stripped of Test captaincy immediately after the 2-0 home Test series loss to Australia.Pollard, meanwhile, has had mixed returns since returning from knee surgery last November. Pollard was picked for the tri-series at home in June, involving Australia and South Africa, and was instrumental in West Indies finishing as runners-up, scoring 205 runs at 41.00 including two half-centuries.Browne, who replaced former West Indies captain Clive Lloyd as chairman of selectors in June, has taken some bold decisions during his short tenure, including dropping Darren Sammy after he had led West Indies to their second World T20 title.Sammy did not hide his frustration when he called the symposium organised by the WICB and the West Indies Players Association in July, to clear the differences between the board and the players, a publicity stunt on his Twitter account. 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 ' ' '
