CINCINNATI -- Jon Lesters late-summer surge put him in position to get 20 wins for the first time in his career. Air Max 270 Cheap Online . The left-hander let his one chance slip away with an uncharacteristically poor performance.No time to fume over it, though. He might be starting the Cubs first playoff game in a few days.Lester struggled for the first time since mid-July as the Cincinnati Reds pulled away to a 7-4 victory on Saturday against what is likely to be Chicagos lineup for its opening game of the playoffs.Asked before the game if hell open the playoffs with the same lineup -- including Lester on the mound -- manager Joe Maddon said, Theres a shot. The Cubs will host the NL wild-card playoff winner on Friday at Wrigley Field.For now, its more about staying ready and accomplishing a few personal goals, like a 20-win season. Lester (19-5) found himself rushing on the mound Saturday as he gave up five runs in only five innings, including Eugenio Suarezs two-run homer and a pair of RBI by Joey Votto. The left-hander hadnt allowed five runs in a start since July 9.I dont know if I was rushing, just trying to get through the game or what, said Lester, who threw 111 pitches. Im more or less bummed about that more than the other stuff.Maddon has been getting players some rest heading into the postseason. Even so, the Cubs have won eight of 12, finishing one of their best regular seasons with a flourish. Chicagos 102 victories are its most since 1910.I think weve been doing a nice job, Maddon said. Im happy with what were doing now. Its not about this. Its about four days off (before the first playoff game) -- thats the bigger concern.Tim Adleman (4-4) gave up three runs in five innings as part of a rare Reds victory over Chicago. The Cubs are 14-4 against Cincinnati this season. Ben Zobrist hit his third homer in two games.The overwhelming majority of the 30,970 fans were wearing Cubs blue and cheering for Lester to get that milestone victory.You know everybody in that clubhouse wanted to get him his 20th win, Adleman said. This didnt feel at all like home. The place was flooded with Cubs fans. It was sweet to get the win today.Nobodys been better lately than Lester. Since the All-Star break, hed won a career-high 10 straight decisions. In September, he allowed a total of two runs while winning all five starts. Lester had allowed one run or none in a club-record eight straight starts heading into Saturday.The Reds strung together several well-placed hits while sending him to his first loss since July 3. Lester was hoping to become the first Cubs left-hander to win 20 games since Dick Ellsworth in 1963.Jake Arrieta won 22 games last season to help the Cubs reach the playoffs.STATSThe Cubs have hit 40 homers against the Reds this season, the most ever by an opposing team against Cincinnati. ... Dexter Fowler singled for his 1,000th career hit. ... Suarez snapped an 0-for-12 slump with his first homer since Aug. 30. ... Votto had three hits and drove in three runs overall. Hes batting .412 since the All-Star break. Hes trying to become the first player in the majors to hit .400 after the All-Star break since Ichiro Suzuki hit .429 in 2004. ... Aroldis Chapman fanned Votto on three pitches in the eighth clocked at 101, 102 and 101 mph.TRAINERS ROOMCubs: OF Jorge Soler took batting practice on Saturday and appeared to have no problems with his sore right side that has sidelined him for a week. Maddon said he would likely play on Sunday if there was no lingering soreness.Reds: 2B Brandon Phillips had an MRI on his sore left hand that found a deep bruise. He missed a fourth straight game.UP NEXTCubs: Kyle Hendricks (16-8) is expected to go no more than five innings as the Cubs keep him fresh for the postseason. Hendricks has allowed three or fewer runs in each of his last 22 starts since May 22, the longest such streak in the majors this season. His 1.99 ERA is the lowest in the majors.Reds: Robert Stephenson (2-3) makes his sixth start since he was promoted in September. He gave up four runs in 3 2/3 innings of a 9-2 loss at Wrigley Field on Sept. 21.---Follow Joe Kay on Twitter: http://twitter.com/apjoekay Discount Air Max 270 . -- For the first time in two months, an opponent was standing up to Alabama. Cheap Air Max 270 . PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.wholesaleairmax270.com/ . - The Oakland Raiders re-signed offensive lineman Khalif Barnes on Friday. COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolinas offense finally opened things up this season. Freshman quarterback Jake Bentley was a big reason why.Bentley threw for two touchdowns and 201 yards Saturday in his first college game to lead the Gamecocks to a 34-28 victory over Massachusetts. The victory matched the Gamecocks total from their dysfunctional 2015 season and was the most points they had scored this fall.We just really opened up the playbook when Jake was back there, because we know he can throw it very well, said receiver Deebo Samuel, who had eight catches for 106 yards.South Carolina coach Will Muschamp was expecting to redshirt Bentley this season before the teams mounting offensive problems -- they entered dead last in points per game in the Football Bowl Subdivision -- left the first-year coach open to any solution.Bentley proved the right answer against the Minutemen (1-7). He led the Gamecocks (3-4) to touchdowns on their first two series, and then threw a pair of pretty fade passes for TD, the first from 16 yards out to K.C. Crosby and later a 24-yarder to Bryan Edwards to lead 27-7.When UMass cut things to 34-28 with less than 5 minutes left, Bentley accounted for 30 yards to help the Gamecocks run out the clock.Muschamp said he and quarterbacks coach Kurt Roper decided Bentley had improved enough from August until now to be a positive change for the teams attack. Bentley had waited for his shot behind senior Perry Orth and fellow freshman Brandon McIlwain, who had each started three games this season.At the end of the day, we felt like he had progressed very well, he said.Bentley was not available to the media per Muschamps rules against letting freshman do interviews.Running back David Williams ran for two 1-yard TDs for South Carolina, but said he was excited about Bentleys debut.Ive just been impressed since I met, his IQ, how comfortable he is, leading the Gamecocks, Williams said.Muschamp was frustrated with his defense, especially in the second half when the Minutemen rallied.It was an excited locker room because we won, he said. But its also a locker room tthat knows it made mistakes and corrections have to be made. Wholesale Air Max 270. UMass did its share to help with three turnovers in the opening half, two which led to two South Carolina scores.Tight end Adam Breneman had two TD catches for Massachusetts, which fell to 0-3 against Southeastern Conference teams this fall.THE TAKEAWAYMASSACHUSETTS: UMass has been outscored 131-77 in its four games this season against teams from the Power 5 conferences.SOUTH CAROLINA: Its future -- and offensive recovery -- may have started with Bentley behind center. The freshman, wholl turn 19 next month, is sure to have some bumps ahead, maybe as soon as next weeks home game against No. 18 Tennessee. But there was little benefit keeping the strong-armed Bentley on the bench if he could spark up the offense this season.SOUTH CAROLINAS RUN GAMEAfter gaining only 30 yards in a 28-14 loss to Georgia two weeks ago, Gamecock runners put up 194 yards against the Minutemen. Freshman Rico Dowdle led the way with 87 yards and Williams had 69 yards.NEAR MISSESBreneman said UMass knows how close it has come in its games with the SEC this season -- losing 24-7 to Florida and 47-35 to Mississippi State before the South Carolina game.Is it impressive that weve played with three SEC teams so far and you look back on it and see that we couldve won all three of those games if we wouldve made one less mistake, Breneman said. At the same time, at some point, being close isnt good enough. I think thats the feeling in the locker room.UP NEXTMASSACHUSETTS: The Minutemen return home to play Football Championship Subdivision opponent Wagner. The game ends the UMass home season as it finishes with games at Troy, BYU and Hawaii.SOUTH CAROLINA: The Gamecocks go back to the Southeastern Conference grinder against No. 18 Tennessee. The Gamecocks have only won two SEC games the past two seasons and will face a difficult challenge against the Vols, who are in the thick of the Eastern Division chase. ' ' ' 
TORONTO -- QB Henry Burris threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Ernest Jackson in overtime and the Ottawa Redblacks won the Grey Cup on Sunday night, upsetting the Calgary Stampeders 39-33. Nike Air Max Danmark .The third-year Redblacks won their first Canadian Football League title, and gave Ottawa its 10th championship. The Rough Riders won the last of their seven titles in 1976, and the Senators won in 1925 and 1926. The Redblacks lost to Edmonton last year in the title game.For all those haters out there, their organizations havent won a Grey Cup in decades, but ours, in three years, here we are, Grey Cup champions, the 41-year-old Burris said.Calgary was favored by double digits after finishing the regular season 15-2-1. The Redblacks, at 8-9-1, were the first team to finish first in a division with a losing record.After Jackson bobbled but made the touchdown catch on the first possession of overtime, Burris missed the wide-open Khalil Paden on the mandatory 2-point conversion try.I didnt even know E.J. kind of bobbled it, Burris said. I didnt even know it was a completed pass, because it hit his hands and all of a sudden I see it bounce and I was thinking, Awww! Then all of a sudden I hear everyone go crazy and I was like, Did it just happen? Did we just score? I think little plays like that just showed you that this was our moment.Calgary needed to match Ottawas six points in OT, but went three-and-out. QB Bo Levi Mitchells third-down pass went off Bakari Grants hands to give Ottawa one of the biggest upset victories in Grey Cup history.Burris won the game MVP award for the second time, completing 35 of 46 passes for 461 yards and three touchdowns. The former Temple star also ran for two scores after injuring a knee in warm-ups.I knew I wasnt going to be the typical running guy that I usually am, but as long as I could come out here and make good, quick decisions and get the ball out of my hand ... maybe I could do enough to help put our team in a position to be successful, Burris said.Burris also was the Grey Cup MVP with the Stampeders in 2008 in their victory over Montreal at Olympic Stadium. He was Jeff Garcias backup with the 1998 champion Stampeders.The Stampeders rallied from 20 points down to force overtime. DaVaris Daniels scored on a 19-yard run with 1:38 left to cut it to 33-30. Glenn Love recovered Rob Mavers onside kick at Calgarys 49, and Rene Paredes tied it with a 10-yard field goal in the final second.If you dont like ups and downs and all that kind of stuff, then footballs not a good profession to be in, Ottawa coach Rick Campbell said. But I think thats why everybody loves it.Mitchell threw three interceptions for the Stampeders.Burris led Ottawa to a 20-7 lead at halftime, completing 20 of 25 passes for 266 yards and one touchdown -- a 6-yarder to Patrick Lavoie. Burris also threw a 9-yard scoring pass to Brad Sinopoli in the third quarter.It was the third Grey Cup game to go to overtime, and the first since 2005 when Edmonton beat Montreal 38-35 in Vancouver.

The visitors took a deserved lead in the 16th minute with midfielder Yohan Cabaye curling the ball beyond Adrian from inside the penalty area. MADISON, Wis. -- Linebacker Vince Biegel attributes Wisconsins success in the face of injuries in part to a refrain familiar in college football locker rooms across the country.What makes the sixth-ranked Badgers stand out is that they have thrived with the next man up philosophy.Tough-as-nails defense has been a constant this season in Madison, helping Wisconsin seize control of the Big Ten West division. The Badgers (8-2, 5-2, No. 7 CFP) can ensure a trip to the league championship game by winning their final two regular-season contests, starting Saturday at Purdue .Weve had some unfortunate luck with players going down, but it goes down to the players that we have, and the mindset they have to step in, Biegel said.A senior leader, Biegel has played for three head coaches. Bret Bielema was still in Madison when Biegel arrived as a redshirt freshman in 2012. Gary Andersen followed for the next two seasons before current coach Paul Chryst took over in 2015.Biegel loves playing for Chryst, a Madison native who has restored stability. As a former Wisconsin player, Chryst embodies the grind-it-out, no-nonsense style on which the program prides itself.While Wisconsin would love to collect five-star recruits, the Badgers seem just fine with molding and developing lesser-regarded prospects.Ive overlooked at times the culture we have at the University of Wisconsin, because its just ingrained in you from Day 1, the precedent and standard we set here, Biegel said. Its not the five-star, the four guys we dont get. Its the hard work in the offseason, the dedication, the focus we have.That attitude, in turn, is handed down from each generation of Badgers, Biegel said, transcending coaching tenures.The Badgers are third in the FBS in scoring defense (12.7 points a game) and eighth in total defense (292.5 yards). Theyre tops in the Big Ten in rushing defense 101.0 yards per game. And theyve done it through a mix of injuries.Starting inside linebacker Chris Orr was lost for the season in the opener against LSU with a knee injury. Jack Cichy, a fellow starter inside, went down with a season-ending pectoral muscle injury lasst month against Iowa. Nike Air Max Tilbud Danmark. Biegel missed two games with a foot injury. The Badgers lost both games -- to top-five teams Michigan and Ohio State -- but the defense still performed well with Garret Dooley filling in for Biegel. The Badgers held Michigan to a season-low point total in the 14-7 loss . Dooley remains an important player in the linebacker rotation.Low-key like Chryst, defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox heaps the praise on how his players up and down roster get ready.The guys have done a really good job of understanding the importance of practice, how its their time of going over their craft, Wilcox said. All the components that give you the opportunities to have some success.Ryan Connelly and Leon Jacobs have both been more than capable replacements for Cichy, the leading tackler at the time of his injury.In the secondary, Lubern Figaro has improved through the year after taking over when third cornerback Natrell Jamerson went down with a leg injury early in the season. Jamerson is back, adding to the depth in what has been a solid secondary.Wisconsin had four interceptions last week against Illinois .Up front, Olive Sagapolu will miss the Purdue game this weekend because of a right arm injury. At 6-foot-2, 340 pounds, Sagapolu is a space-eating nose tackle who helps slow down the run.The Badgers turned to 6-4, 288-pound Conor Sheehy to play nose. Its a position that he had played before, and while the defense lost size without Sagapolu, it gained more athleticism up front.None of those D-linemen get enough credit. He might have a bad play now and then, but Conor plays steady football, Wilcox said. Conors a guy who will do anything for the team; very, very smart, well prepared and real good technique.Sheehy had figured to play more end this season, though he practiced at both positions.It doesnt matter to me, Sheehy said, Whatever they need me to play.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org---Follow Genaro Armas at: https://twitter.com/GArmasAP ' ' ' 
D-Day has arrived for prospective AFL players around the country with the national draft to take place at Sydneys Hordern Pavillion on Friday evening. Clearance Air Max Shoes .Essendon are expected to take Sandringhams Andrew McGrath or North Ballarats Hugh McCluggage with the top pick in one of the most even drafts in recent memory.The Bombers have decided who they will select with the No.1 pick of Fridays national draft but are keeping their choice a closely guarded secret.Barring a late change of heart, it is likely McGrath or McCluggage - both gun midfielders - will join John Worsfolds effort to propel this years wooden spooner back up the ladder in 2017.McGrath announced himself as a potential No.1 pick in a stunning season where he captained TAC Cup side Sandringham and school team Brighton Grammar to premierships and co-captained Vic Metro to a national championship.Obviously that pick carries a bit of weight and expectation but its a massive honour too, McGrath said.If the cards were to fall that way Id be really humbled and privileged to accept that responsibility.Hopefully Id take it with both hands and represent myself and my club in the best possible way.Both players have toured Essendons facilities in recent weeks but say they are none the wiser as to the Bombers intentions.Theyre keeping their lips shut pretty tight, McCluggage said.I dont think anyone has much of an idea. Whatever happens, happens.Ive been pretty nervous ... its been a pretty big build-up over the last few weeks without school to keep your mind off things.So Im nervous but really excited at the same time to get stuck into things.Unlike recent years when the likes of Jacob Weitering, Paddy McCartin and Tom Boyd have announced themselves as the best young player in the land a long way out from the draft, the race to No.1 has been much closer for this draft class.Most other years No.1 has ben declared from about July, AFL national talent manager Kevin Sheahan said.So its been very tight at the top and then settled down to two or three most likely to go to Essendon.But clubs who dont have a first round pick need not despair, according to Sheahan.We think up the front that the midfielders are as good as any year but its down the back end that we reckon is special because our game is growing, he said.Were really buoyant about whats down the back. Weve seen the likes of Adam Goodes, Dane Swan, James Hird and Rory Sloane (go late) in years past.There have been some wonderful players and we think there are a bunch of players who could be taken down the back of this draft that will end up champions of the game, such is the depth of talent.

SILVERSTONE, Great Britain -- Kimi Raikkonen says he would not waste his time in Formula One if he did not feel motivated enough to win another title.Since returning to Ferrari in 2014, Raikkonen has failed to win a race and has scored just nine podiums in 47 races. He is out of contract at the end of this year, but says he is motivated to remain at the team next year and continue his pursuit of a second world title.Ive always said I would not be here if I didnt enjoy it or felt that I cant drive, or do it 100 percent -- it hasnt changed, he said. It doesnt always mean if you have a bad results you are not 100 percent giving your best or motivated or something, its not so simple.If I wasnt motivated, I wouldnt be here wasting my own time or the teams time. I obviously enjoy it more when the results arre better, but it doesnt mean that you drive better than you drove before. Nike Air Max Mens Sale. Its just that the whole package is better around you and we do a better job improving the package.Raikkonen confirmed he would not search for another F1 drive outside Ferrari.Ive always said, for nearly 10 years, that my last team would be Ferrari and its still like that. What happens in the future I dont know, time will tell, but I usually dont make plans for a very long future.Things change in life very quickly and hopefully Ill stay healthy and well see what happens in the future. I havent really put a lot of thought into it but Im sure theres a lot of nice things to do in the future. ' ' ' 
The last few seasons have perhaps been some of the best in club history for Southampton. Air Max 95 Wholesale Canada . However, it seems with every passing campaign, players and managers leave and another rebuilding effort commences.This season, that rebuild has fallen at the feet of manager Claude Puel, who took over when Ronald Koeman departed for the greener pastures of Everton. Through the opening two-plus months of the season Puel has done a fine job on the south coast.The Saints (2-3-2) will aim to extend their unbeaten run in league play to three matches when they welcome Burnley to St. Marys Stadium on Sunday.After starting the campaign winless in their first four matches, the Saints picked up their form with a pair of victories against Swansea City and West Ham United. They have not conceded a goal in their last three matches, including a scoreless draw against defending champions Leicester City prior to the international hiatus.Both sides had plenty of chances but were ultimately unable to find the back of the net, which forced the clubs to share the spoils.Puel was keen to praise the efforts of midfielder Oriol Romeu in keeping the ball out of the net. The Spanish midfielder won five of six tackles against Leicester to go with three interceptions, two blocks and one clearance.He doesnt play well just in this game, the manager said. Since the beginning of the season we have seen good play from him for the defence. In every match, he can play a fantastic game because his quality is that of an excellent player.He can recover the ball and thats very important for us, because he gives a structure for the team. Hes very interesting with the ball and without the ball in front of the defence.Burnley (2-1-4) come into this clash in 14th place. Theyll be hoping for a result Sunday to move them further away from the dreaded drop zone despite it still be early in the season.Sean Dyches charges have been nothing if not somewhat inconsistent this season. In their two wins the defence has been impenetrable, but theyve been unable to maintain that form in defeats to Swansea City, Chelsea, Leicester City and Arsenal. Most recently, the Clarets played well and put in an excellent shift in the defensive third, though it wasnt enough to earn a point in the 1-0 loss to the Gunners.Despite things not going their way, Dyche was quick to praise his teams defensive efforts against a powerful opponent.We had some really good chances, he said. Weve hit the bar and made their keeper work and then, on the other side of things, when you have to defend, I felt we did that very well.The organisation and belief is a big thing in this team and that was absolutely on show. The defeat doesnt take the gloss off completely though because its a long season and we are improving.These sides last met on March 21, 2015, with Southampton taking a 2-0 victory over Burnley at St. Marys courtesy of a 37th-minute strike from Shane Long and 58th-minute own goal.

Philadelphia is 2-0 against the Senators this season and scored five goals in each victory. The Flyers recorded a 5-0 win in Ottawa on Nov. 12 and then earned a 5-2 home decision on Nov. 19. The Flyers have claimed three straight and four of the last five encounters with the Sens overall and Philly has won two in a row and three of its past four tests in Canadas capital city.The Toronto Blue Jays, winners of five in a row and eight of their last 10 games, are currently the hottest team in Major League Baseball. While this recent surge still has them four games below .500 and last in the American League East, they have pulled to within five-and-a-half games of the second Wild Card position, currently held jointly by the New York Yankees and Texas Rangers. The question is, what has been the biggest reason for their recent success? Offensively, Adam Lind is on fire, not just during this stretch but for the entire month of June. In the 13 games played this month, the Blue Jays first-baseman/designated hitter has a .439 average with four home runs and 13 runs batted in. Overall, he is hitting .350 for the season with a .561 slugging percentage.  He is also currently on the three-game, multi-hit streak, highlighted by three hits and his eighth home run of the season in Sundays win over the Rangers, giving the Blue Jays a sweep of the series. Infielder Edwin Encarnacion is tied for fourth in the American League with 18 home runs and is putting together another solid power season. Hes driven in seven runs in the past 10 games for the Jays and hit .282 over the same stretch. His defensive abilities were on display in Sundayys win when he stabbed a line drive at the hot corner. Air Max 95 Cheap Authentic. Centrefielder Colby Rasmus has homered in each of the Jays last three games and driven in six runs in the process. Since he gave up five runs in a 5-0 loss at the hands of the New York Yankees on May 17th, starter Mark Buehrle has been solid. He is 2-1 in the five starts since that loss, with an earned-run-average (ERA) of 1.91 and has pitched at least six innings in each start. In the process, he lowered his overall season ERA from 6.33 to its current 4.66. The Jays have won both games started by Chien-Ming Wang, who was signed after his minor league release by the New York Yankees. He picked up a no-decision in his first start, where he went seven-and-a-third innings and gave up five runs against the Chicago White Sox. In his second start, he threw seven shutout innings to lead the Jays to a 7-2 victory over the Rangers. The Blue Jays bullpen has been a strength of the team all season and they have continued to perform at a high level, led by closer Casey Janssen, who has converted 14 of 15 save opportunities this season.With many things to choose from, our question to you is, what has been the biggest reason for the Blue Jays recent success?Its Your!

Springfield, Mass. Cheap Air Max For Sale . -- The dream his stepfather had long ago becomes reality Friday night at the Springfield Symphony Hall as the LSU and NBA icon, Shaquille ONeal, is inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.And if Shaq has his way, Sgt. Phillip Harrisons memory will be front and center at the Symphony Hall.And I will probably make one of my relatives move, ONeal said Wednesday night on NBA-TV. And leave an empty seat for Phillip Harrison. I ordered my tickets the other day but I will probably have to make a painful call to one of my cousins, hey I need your seat. Ill make it up to you, because I want that seat to be empty. If he was still alive, I know he would be there and be so happy.The enshrinement event begins at 5:30 p.m. CT and will be covered live on NBA-TV and NBA.com.What remains to be seen is will we see the fun-loving Shaq in his acceptance speech or will he be emotional when he talks about his mom Lucille ONeal and his stepdad Sgt. Phillip Harrison.It was the fun-loving side of Shaq that came out a few years ago after Coach Dale Brown introduced him in Natchitoches (as he dubbed it Shaqitoches) at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame. At the College Basketball Hall of Fame induction in 2014 when both Shaq and Dale went in, it was a night of one upsmanship in storytelling.But there is something magical about the pinnacle of the sport in Springfield. When Hall of Famers (and Shaquille will have Julius Erving, Bill Russell, Alonzo Mourning and Isiah Thomas escort him to the stage for is his acceptance speech. Thats the moment when it seems to hit the inductees the most and emotional flow. So who knows what the moment will bring out in ONeal?At the Thursday press conference at the Hall, which is also opened to a paid crowd at the museum, ONeal was at his best, strutting the stage like a fashion model with his new Hall of Fame jacket and later bringing a young girl on stage with a Michigan State sweatshirt to take a picture with him and fellow inductee Coach Tom Izzo of Michigan State. Then inductee Sheryl Swoopes got up and told the story that ONeal offered a million dollars if she would take a pratfall walking up to the stage. Swoopes said only if ONeal could show her the money!Wednesday night on NBATV, ONeal sat down with TNT colleague Ernie Johnson for a one-hour chat billed as The Big Conversation and to me, as someone who has watched him since his days at LSU from 1989-92 and beyond, this was one of the most articulate and in many ways comprehensive interviews Shaq as given on a national stage. Johnson may need to get some of the credit for that because of his demeanor and style, but ONeal also took the opportunity to open up on many subjects that many times included his parents.Some highlights:I asked my mother a long time ago why did you name me Shaquille ONeal. She said because my grandmother told me that you would somebody that will always be remembered. Thats what she told me. Because all my other kids and cousins are Brian, Tony, Jerome ... Why did you name me that crazy name? My mother told me that you are going to be world renown. That name Shaquille ONeal will ring bells.My dream was to make $8 million for 10 years and I already had it set. I had a little house. I was going to get a Blazer and a Mercedes-Benz. Johnson goes: So youve exceeded your expectations? Yes I did. I really did. laughed ONeal.(Talking about Kobe when he first came to the Lakers) You know how they always say how a guy is in the gym a couple of hours before or a couple hours after practice? That was Kobe Bryant. Im a veteran. Practice is at 10. Im arriving at 9:45. He was always there.(On the relationship with Kobe now). Were cool ... The NBA stands for Nothing But Actors. So the beef that we had there will never spill over into real life.(On Pat Riley and his LSU Coach Dale Brown) ... (Riley) and Dale Brown when they tell stories before a game, you just want to go out and kill people. Pat Riley and Dale Brown are similar guys. They teach never give up. Thats what took me to the next level. Not training. Not going out in the gym three hours. Conversations.Dale Brown had a rule that if you miss class you are going to run. Im a junior. Im an All-American ... I might be going pro at the end of this year. I might not. I miss class one day. Im sleeping and I wake up and there is this hand on my chest ... I actually think Im dead. God? There is this white hand on my chest (Coach Browns hand). The crazy thing is I got three locks on my door. How the hell did this guy get in my room? ... I ran about 15 laps (at Bernie Moore track) ... I never missed class again. It took that disciplinarian father-like figure to get me to perform at the next level.A guy asked me the other day are you happy about the hall of fame and I said yea. He said you dont have a smile on your face. This was (Phillip Harrisons) dream as well as my dream. Hes my stepfather ... But when he started teaching me basketball he always preached three names - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell. He told me everything about those guys. He kept saying if you listen to me I can make you as good as those guys. I wanted to be Dr. J, but once I became seven-foot, I got to be like those guys. He would just preach their name all the time. When I heard people say that Shaq is similar to those guys, all that stuff he was telling me was correct.One of the more amazing and poignant moments came in the shows final minutes when Johnson slowly and deliberately asked ONeal about his biological father and any chance of a relationship. Its a clip worth watching on NBATV as Shaq appears to wipe away a tear from under his eye as he tells the story of meeting with the man after this past basketball season.The show is a very amazing look at the life of a sports icon that really in a short time takes you through more than Xs and Os and championships and broken backboards. Shaquille ONeal is what he is because of his basketball ability at LSU and the NBA. But he has also become an iconic figure in sports. One that has transcended the game into business dealings, television and made a wonderful life for himself and his family.Friday night, is just another chance for people to recognize the talent and yes the personality that we know as Shaq. Its going to be quite a night.Frankly its quite a class with him as well: ABA superstar Zelmo Beaty, 27-year NBA referee Darell Garretson, 11-time NBA All-Star Allen Iverson, two-time NABC Coach of the Year Tom Izzo, the first African-American coach in a professional league John McLendon, early African American Pioneer Cumberland Posey, iconic Chicago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf, four-time WNBA Champion Sheryl Swoopes and global ambassador of the game Yao Ming.I just have a feeling that Shaq may just own the night.

Dont do that. That was just a bad mistake. They ran the same play back-to-back, and I made a play.It wasnt all pretty for McKelvin. He bit badly on a fake by Falcons wide receiver?Taylor Gabriel that led to a 76-yard touchdown, then failed to take advantage of a couple opportunities, including a gift interception down the stretch that could have iced the game.

CHARLESTON, S. Air Jordan Shoes From China .C. -- Western Michigan coach Steve Hawkins watched his team slice a double-digit lead to three points against defending national champion Villanova. Then the third-ranked Wildcats showed once more theyre built to handle tough games.They did what they do, Hawkins said.Villanova used a 13-4 run down the stretch for a 76-65 win over the Broncos (1-2) on Thursday to start the Charleston Classic. Western Michigan had cut a 14-point second-half lead to 59-56 to draw within striking distances of the Wildcats.Thats when Eric Paschall, Kris Jenkins and Josh Hart all hit 3-pointers to keep Villanova undefeated and off to its fourth straight 3-0 start.Paschall finished with 17 points, and Jalen Brunson and Hart had 14 each. Jenkins, whos shot at the end gave the Wildcats their national title last April, had 11.It was a good, tough game, Wildcats coach Jay Wright said. It wasnt pretty, though and weve still got to get a lot better.Villanova improved to 12-0 in early season tournaments over the years. The Wildcats are chasing their third consecutive crown after winning the Legends Classic in 2014 and NIT season tipoff last year.Jalen Brunson said the Wildcats, who toughed out a 79-76 win at No. 15 Purdue on Monday night, didnt panic at Western Michigans charge. Weve got veterans and its a situation weve seen before, he said.The Wildcats will face Wake Forest, a 103-81 winner over UTEP, on Friday for a spot in Sundays championship.The Broncos (1-2) fell to 0-4 at the eight-team Charleston tournament. They lost all three games when they last visited in the 2008-09 season. Thomas Wilder led Western Michigan with 19 points.BIG PICTUREWestern Michigan lost its second straight after falling to Oakland on Monday. The Broncos forced too many long shots, finishing 3 of 15 from behind the arc. They were much more effective driving deep into Villanovas defense. Wilders five baskets came from around the rim.Villanova came off a 79-76 win at No. 15 Purdue, and its sluggish performance made this much closer than it should have been. Jenkins picked up two early fouls and played only 21 minutes in his return to South Carolina, having spent part of his childhood in Columbia.DEFENSIVE IMPROVEMENTWright said his team must pick up its defensive pressure if it hopes to succeed this year. The Wildcats lost two big defenders in forward Daniel Ochefu and guard Ryan Arcidiacono. Wright said Arcidiacono called out defensive changes, a job thats fallen to Brunson this season. We have the ability, Brunson said. We just have to get better.WESTERN SWAGHawkins said his team will consider its strong showing against Villanova whenever theyre facing adversity this season. He said the players came here to win, but also understand they made improvements that will help them later. Its something well have in our holster, he said.STANDING STRONGPaschall, Villanovas 6-foot-7 sophomore, is guarding taller players this season because of the Wildcats lack of size in their rotation. Of the eight players with 15 or more minutes, only 6-9 senior Darryl Reynolds was taller than Paschall. The sophomore says it is a difficult challenge that hes becoming more accustomed to each time out.

So far, there is no policy available to boxing promoters to buy so they can put on a boxing card in New York, which has not hosted a professional boxing event since Aug. 21.Pedraza (22-0, 12 KOs), 27, of Puerto Rico, will be making the third defense of his 130-pound world title since he won the vacant belt by one-sided decision against Andrey Klimov in June 2015.I think its a helluva fight, very dangerous, but its a fight Pedraza wanted, promoter Lou DiBella said. Davis has been screaming and yelling that he wanted a big fight, and he got what he wanted.In order to make the fight, Pedraza had to secure an exception from the IBF allowing him to fight Davis rather than his mandatory challenger, Englands Liam Walsh (21-0, 14 KOs), who became the mandatory by beating Klimov by near-shutout decision on Oct. 8.Davis (16-0, 15 KOs), 22, of Baltimore, is an exceptionally fast and hard-hitting rising prospect who will be taking a huge step up in competition.

Its a tremendous opportunity, and hes ready to step up and seize the moment. This is something me and Floyd have been working on for some time.Ellerbe initially tried to make a deal for Davis to challenge titleholder Jason Sosa for his version of the title, but that deal fell apart, so they pursued Pedraza.We tried to make the Sosa fight, but it didnt happen for a number of reasons, Ellerbe said. Were excited to work with Lou. We have a tremendous card Jan. 14, and this fight is just part of it. Gervonta is a straight killer. Hes a very good boxer, but hes also a tremendous puncher. Hell go into the fight fully prepared, and we expect him to bring that IBF championship home.The card will mark the first time that Mayweather Promotions, which also represents Jack, will be promoting in New York, a place Mayweather never fought as an active boxer.Floyd has been wanting to bring a big event to New York and invade New York, Ellerbe said. Mayweather Promotions invades New York. Its something weve been working on. Were very confident that everything will be worked out [with regard to the insurance issue]. Lou and his team have worked extremely hard, and Floyd has been very adamant that he wants to do anything in his power to make this happen. Air Max Baratas España .

Their agent, Paul Doyle, contends something in the new supplements the sprinters were taking caused it and "Chris is the one that provided those." The email quotes Xuereb as saying he was disappointed the athletes are blaming him for their violations. "It is time the athletes took responsibility for their doping instead of looking around for a scapegoat, whether that person is their therapist, bartender or anyone else," says the email, which details Xuerebs relationship with the sprinters. "Athletes keep using the same story, which is to blame the scapegoat for their own wrongdoing." Earlier Tuesday, Italian police formally placed Powell, Simpson and Xuereb under criminal investigation for violating the countrys doping laws. The move came a day after Italian police confiscated unidentified substances in a raid on the hotel where the three were staying in the northeastern town of Lignano Sabbiadoro, following the athletes positive tests. Police told the AP the raids were executed after a tip from the World Anti-Doping Agency. Doyle said he and the sprinters worked in conjunction with WADA on the raid after becoming suspicious that Xuereb might have given them supplements laced with a banned substance. Doyle also said Powell and Simpson were aware of the impending raid, but Xuereb was kept out of the loop. "Asafa and Sherone have been tested more than 100 times each through their career ... and never turned in a positive test," Doyle told the AP in a phone interview. "Now they change their supplements and the first time they get tested, they have a positive test? It has to be something in those new supplements that has caused it. Chris is the one that provided those. "Were not saying he did anything deliberate, but its in those supplements." In the email statement from Xuerebs account, he is quoted as saying he "did not provide any banned or illegal substances to Asafa Powell or Sherone Simpson." The statement says all the vitamins Xuereb provided to the sprinters were found to be legal by Italian police. "I do not know what these athletes were taking in addition to what I suggested to them," the statement said. "Although I suggested certain vitamins to these athletes, it is ultimately the athletes responsibility to accept or reject my suggestion. "Unfortunately, it appears that these athletes were not solely following my suggestions or WADAs guidelines. These guidelines are in place so all athletes can have a clean sport. Both athletes are clearly looking for a scapegoat. I am confident, and I have also spoken to researchers and the police, that I have done nothing wrong." Doyle said that while the sprinters had been led to believe everything they were taking was untainted, he and the athletes should have been more responsible about which supplements they used. "In hindsight, we shouldve been given a list, made sure we got a list," Doyle said. "The extent of what I did, I said to (Xuereb) in a text message, that all supplements have to be cleared by me first. He never cleared them with me. He did send them in an invoice that had the names of supplements in there that he had purchased. But that was it. I didnt have the ingredient list."

Two pressure cooker bombs exploded near the finish line of the April 15 race in an area packed with fans cheering the passing runners. Three people were killed and more than 260 injured, including at least 16 who lost limbs. http://www.cheapairmax720.us/ . After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week. Perth Wildcats claimed an 84-74 overtime win against the Cairns Taipans on Saturday night to avoid a second straight loss to start their title defence.Jaron Johnson bought the Perth Arena crowd to their feet when he dropped a three-point shot to tie the scores with just 0.80 seconds remaining in the game.Just 17.1 seconds earlier, Johnson had those same fans holding their heads in disbelief after he turned the ball over when the Cats trailed by one point and looked to have blown their chance of victory.That three pointer was Johnsons 13th in a massive personal final quarter after the Taipans had led by as many as six in the same period.He finished the games highest scorer, with 26, while Casey Prather scored 23.The Taipans managed only four points in the overtime period.The Wildcats produced an almost carbon copy of Thursdays away loss to the Brisbane Bullets in the season opener.They got out to an early lead (14 points) against the Taipans, just like they did against the Bullets - only to let their opposition back in the game after the main break.Only this time, they managed to find a way to win.Perth coach Trevor Gleeson must have let out a massive sigh of relief after the game, having given away a technical foul and a subsequent one point to the Taipans Cameron Gliddon during the fourth quarter.The margin then was two points in favour of the visitors.Gliddon was terrific in the Cairns comeback, adding 10 points of his own in the fourth quarter and 20 for the game.The Taipans didnt help themselves in the first half though, with inaccurate shooting.After scoring the first four points of the contest, they managed only eight for the opening quarter. Cheap Air Max 720 Wholesale. They shot a disappointing 17 per cent from the field, with none of their seven attempts from three-point range dropping.Cairns also got itself into foul trouble late in the period, but while the Cats couldnt make the most of their gifts from the free-throw line (six from 11), they still led by 11 points at the first break.That lead was reduced to just eight by half-time, despite the Taipans still struggling in offense.Prather and Jameel McKay threatened to blow the game apart for the home side early in the second quarter, the beneficiaries of some typically dogged Damian Martin defence - and the lead got out to 14.New Wildcats US import Jaron Johnson couldnt say if the match-tying shot was the biggest he has ever hit, but admits its in his top five.Its probably ... right up there, he said.I want to be the type of player that can be put into that position to shoot like take.Coach wrote the play. I had had a turnover just previous to that so I was feeling kind of bad about it, but my teammates were there to pick me up.Cairns coach Aaron Fearne said he was disappointed that they let the win go.We lacked some discipline on what were doing, he said.Im disappointed we didnt stay aggressive. We had been playing very aggressive in the pre-season and came out tonight tentative; very on the back foot.We let them control us, instead of us controlling the game.And then obviously we broke down on that last play when they hit the three.

Mathieu Debuchy has joined Bordeaux on loan for the remainder of the season. Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys . The Arsenal right-back is desperate for first-team football to stake his claim for a place in Frances Euro 2016 squad and initially wanted to remain in the Premier League.But Bordeaux made a late move, and the deal was done with the Ligue 1 club before the transfer window closed. Debuchy, 30, joined Arsenal in a £12m move from Newcastle in the summer of 2014, but his first season was interrupted by two serious injuries and he has since struggled to be selected ahead of Hector Bellerin.Arsenal said on their official website: Everyone at Arsenal wishes Mathieu well for his time with the Girondins. Debuchy has spent a lot of time on the bench this term Debuchy, who spent 10 years and played 301 games at Lille, was part of the Euro 2012 and World Cup 2014 squads for France, for whom he last played in September 2015 in a 2-1 win over Serbia, at Bordeauxs brand new stadium, built for Euro 2016.Its hard to imagine it.

SUZUKA, Japan -- Formula One teams are divided over where to go pre-season testing next year, with some favouring Barcelona and others Bahrain.Changes to the regulations present a step into the unknown in 2017, with both the teams and tyre supplier Pirelli set to be on a steep learning curve at the two four-day tests before the first race in Australia. Pirelli favours Bahrain because the temperatures will be more representative of most races on the calendar and the tracks emphasis on traction will help it understand the level of degradation to expect at the opening races.Under the regulations the pre-season tests need to take place in Europe, but in the Suzuka Friday press conference, Mercedes technical boss Paddy Lowe led the campaign to choose Bahrain instead.The situation is that we have the biggest change in tyre regulations probably for one or two decades and Pirelli have asked the FIA if they would support testing in Bahrain, which is outside Europe, Lowe said. By regulation it requires a process to get there, so as I understand, a majority of teams support that request.For me, the important point is that what Pirelli were asking for is some hot-condition testing of the compounds particularly. The structure of the tyre is created and tested in the lab but the compounds they can only evaluate in real circuit conditions and unfortunately the mule car programme which is running at the moment has delivered three cars which are very helpful to the process but they are not delivering the level of aerodynamic load that will be seen next year.So for me its a matter of supporting Pirellis request to contain the risk of arriving at the first race as being the first event with hot conditions and theres real risk to the show. Weve seen what can happen, for example, in Indianapolis 2005.We mustnt forget that we need to put on a show, we need to run a 300 kilometers race with sensible numbers of tyres, so thats not an inconsiderable risk and should be covered. So thats why we particularly support that request.However, Williams technical director Pat Symonds was of a different opinion.[We are] diametrically opposed, he said. The cost of doing a test outside of Europe is vast. Depending on exactly how you do it and how much you have to ship back to the UK, how much you can ship on to the first race -- were talking of a minimum of £300,000, probably a maximum of £500,000 so a likely figure sitting in the middle of that. Now to a team like Mercedes, Im sure that they can put contingencies in their budgets to cover things like that. A team like Williams simply cant, its a significant amount of our budget, it is unaccounted for and therefore I think it is the wrong thing to do.Now, the rules do have an anomaly in them in that Im sure everyone knows that at this stage of the year you normally need unanimous agreement to change the rules, but there is an anomaly in that theres just this very one thing where at the moment the rules do not allow you to test outside Europe but there is this anomaly that by majority you can agree to test outside Europe. We are opposed to that. The thing that the rules do not allow you to do is to split the testing so you cant have some people testing in Europe, some people testing outside.Now Paddy mentioned we need to have safety and the Indianapolis situation and things like that but I think its very, very clear in the requirements that Pirelli have signed up to and indeed that Pirelli have asked for that were not running cars to test the safety of tyres. That has to be done off the car, that has to be done before they ever see a track, so I dont think that thats an acceptable reason to go testing in the Middle East or elsewhere. Yes, there will be difficulties but you know were inn the same boat. Wholesale Basketball Jerseys China. We are having the tyres selected for us for the first few races which personally I think is a good thing.If it does come about, then obviously people are going to have to do it because, as I say, we cant split the testing but its going to make a very, very serious dent in our budget. If we do it, I think we need to consider where we do it because we do act like sheep quite often in Formula One and theres this thing of oh well, weve tested in Bahrain before, lets go to Bahrain.Personally I dont think Bahrains a very good circuit to go testing. We have tested there in the winter, some people remember some years ago that there was a test there which was effectively sand-stormed off rather than rained off. And even when we tested there as recently as 2014, the first few hours of the day were spent just cleaning the circuit up. If you accept youre going to stop on the way to Australia, it really doesnt matter where you stop. I think Abu Dhabi would be a much better place, maybe even Malaysia. But as a team were opposed to the idea.Lowe stepped in a second time to clarify his position.I need to correct Pat because I think you misstated what I said. I wasnt talking about the safety of the tyre from a construction point of view, I made that clear. Its just safety from a show point of view with the compound. If you have the wrong compounds then we will be trying to do six or seven stop races and we dont have the tyres to do it. That was my point.Pirellis side of the argument was put forward by its technical chief Mario Isola in a separate media session. He said Pirelli needs the test in hotter conditions to understand the compounds so that it can judge whether the compound selection it has made for the first three races (a decision that needs to be made prior to the first test in order to ship the tyres) is correct.Without representative testing in hot conditions, Isola said Pirelli would have to make conservative compound choices for the first race, which could then have a negative impact on the racing. However, with a test in Bahrain it would be able to prescribe softer compounds in the knowledge that it could still enact an emergency plan to change them if the data from Bahrain proves it has made the wrong choice.When we have the feedback from the winter test, if we decide that any of our choices for Australia, China or Bahrain is completely wrong, we can put in place an emergency plan moving the selection. So, if we decide for Australia that we are going soft, super-soft, ultra-soft and then we realise in testing we are too soft because the performance of the car is much higher compared to expectations, we can move a step harder and move to medium, soft and super-soft. So it is an emergency plan.We would prefer to avoid any last minute change, but considering next year everything is new, the cars are new -- and their performance is just an estimation from simulation -- tyres are new, compounds are new and constructions are new, maybe it is necessary to do that. So we need to prepare a plan and share it with the FIA and the teams and agree that if anything like that happens we are ready to react.Although the option of splitting the teams into two separate tests is against the current regulations, Isola said Pirelli would be willing to accommodate it.We are ready to supply logistics for both tests if they are going to happen, but of course it is not our decision. If the decision is to give the teams the freedom to go to Barcelona or Bahrain, we will provide the logistics for both tests. But my feeling is that it will not be the solution we choose. ' ' ' 
Anthony Davis was flat on his back, grabbing his right ankle and wincing in pain. Cheap Air Max 270 Canada . And now the New Orleans Pelicans can only wonder if their best player will be ready for opening night.Davis sprained his ankle Wednesday in a preseason game against the Houston Rockets in Beijing, part of the NBA Global Games. The All-Star center was unable to play when last season ended because of shoulder and knee problems, and this season is presumably going to begin with him facing yet another injury issue.Its very frustrating, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. Its very frustrating in that we cant seem to get a rhythm or we cant seem to put the team together because theres always someone missing.Davis has never played in more than 68 games in a regular season for New Orleans, missing an average of 17 contests in each of his first four seasons. He needed surgery on his left knee to fix a problem in March.Davis was scheduled for more evaluation on his ankle Thursday, when the team is back in New Orleans. The Pelicans 13-hour flight home from Beijing was scheduled to land around 2:40 a.m. Eastern time.New Orleans used 42 different starting lineups in 82 games last season -- only one of those lineups for more than six games. And this season is starting with an array of injury concerns for the Pelicans, even before Davis got hurt when he was going against Houston center Nene during the first quarter.Guard ETwaun Moore (right heel contusion) got hurt Wednesday as well. Tyreke Evans and Quincy Pondexter didnt even make the trip to China while dealing with the aftermath of knee surgeries, and starting point guard Jrue Holiday is out indefinitely to be with his wife, former U.S. soccer star Lauren Holiday -- who was diagnosed with a brain tumor while pregnant with the couples first child.The Holidays daughter was born last month, and Lauren Holiday is expected to have surgery to remove the benign tumor later this fall.---ROCKETS 116, PELICANS 104BEIJING -- James Harden scored 14 points and handed out eight assists for Houston, which remained unbeaten in four preseason games and swept two matchups with New Orleans on this trip to China.Bobby Brown led the Rockets with 18 points.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Even before he dismounted his bike on that snowy Minnesota morning three years ago to ask Gwen Jorgensen if shed be his wife, Patrick Lemieux issued an equally unexpected proposal: He would abandon his pro cycling career to be her house husband. Nike Air Force 1 Low .She was taken aback both times -- and twice she said yes.While viewers of the Rio de Janeiro Olympics are taking to social media to slam what they perceive as sexist portrayals of some of the worlds greatest athletes, Jorgensen fiercely credits her husbands role in her emergence as the worlds top female triathlete.Patrick is vital to my success, said Jorgensen, the two-time defending ITU world champion and the favorite in the womens Olympic triathlon this weekend.She said she never could have left her family in the Midwest to train and tour overseas for nine months a year and keep crushing races were it not for Lemieux quitting the Kenda 5-Hour Energy pro cycling team after two seasons to serve as her compass, chef and chauffeur.He provides the mental support, Jorgensen said. He also does all the little things like the cooking and cleaning and he goes to the grocery store.All of which would otherwise add up over time to sap the mental, physical and emotional energy required to stay on top of the world.So, Jorgensen said, Im really fortunate.While others in their circle look at the couple through envious eyes, Lemieux raises plenty of eyebrows in a society that grapples with gender roles.I dont have a `job, for some people, thats hard for them to grasp. But once you explain it they go, `I get it. Like, wow! OK, cool, Lemieux said Wednesday while watching the U.S. womens swim practice at the Flamengo Club not far from the triathlon course on Copacabana Beach where the men race Thursday.Yeah, of course, its a really easy punchline for a story like, `Guy stays at home, works for his wife. But its much more than that for us.Their lives crossed -- and changed -- during a chance encounter in 2011 in Milwaukee, where Jorgensen was an accountant at Ernst & Young and trying to see if this new sport shed been recruited to a year earlier was her bag.Lemieux happened upon a Wednesday night group bike ride while in town for a night. He joined the peloton and recognized his friend, Tom Schuler, who asked Lemieux if hed give some advice to Jorgensen.Although she was a track All-American and swam for three years at the University of Wisconsin, Jorgensen had only been riding for a year.He gave her some tips and when they were almost through Lemieux told Jorgensen he knew of this really great restaurant if she was up for it.She was.Without braking, Lemieux let go of the handlebars, sat up and casually tapped her number into his cellphone.Jorgensen:I thought that was very impressive.Lemieux:Yeah, that was like doing a wheelie, I guess.They soon began dating and a year later Lemieux was visiting Jorgensen in Madrid. He had a race to get back to in the U.S., but told her he wasnt going to use the ticket. She needed an operations manager to allow her to take that next step and he knew just the guy.Jorgensen:He told me, `Im going to be quitting cycling to be with you the whole time. I was like, `Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! You need to think about this. I was actually more hesitant than him. He had been thinking about it and this was just a shock to me and I said I dont want you to have any regrets or I want you to follow your passion, as well, and he said, `No, Ive made my decision and Im going to be there with you.Lemieux:It was really clear to see. I was very pragmatic about my ability in the sport and it was clear to see that Gwen had already surpassed the highest level that I would reach. So, for me to quit that was more the emotions of leaving my friends pretty much. Cyclings pretty tough. It wasnt something that I was really prepared to keep investing in to get the returns on my performance that I wanted. So, that decision, people say, `Oh, thats tough, giving up your career. But Im really at peace with it. Ive never once turned back and said I wish I could go back. I miss riding my bike sometimes when the weathers nice for four, five, six hours. But the racing part of it, I dont miss it at all.Falling in love had revealed a hatred in his life.Yeah, its just a terrible sport, cycling, Lemieux said. Its really dangerous. All of it, the high speed. When you think about it, Novak Djokovic, when he goes out to play, hes never going to lose his life. When the road cyclists go out, they might die and thats a really confronting thing in that sport. And it just wasnt fun for me anymore.So, they were officially a team, and as 2013 was winding down, Lemieux and Jorgensen were back home in St. Paul, Minnesota, when they went on another memorable bike ride. As they approached the Ford Parkway Bridge, he suggested they stop and take a photo. I remember getting off my bike and thinking it really wasnt that pretty that day because it was actually the first snowfall and you really couldnt see a view of the river, Jorgensen said.You know, Im always going to love you, he said.You cant say these things unless you mean it, she interrupted.OK, well, what if I do this, he said as he got down on a knee.To say Jorgensen was swept off her feet doesnt do justice to the moment.I was shocked and I took a step back and slipped and fell on the ice, Jorgensen said. But, yeah, I was fine.As a team, Jorgensen won an unprecedented dozen consecutive races between May 2014 and April 2016, securing consecutive ITU world championships before cutting back on her schedule this year with an Olympic gold medal in mind.I love having Patrick around, she said. Hes there every day. Its an advantage for me and Pat, hes the worlds best caretaker. Because he comes from sport, he knows what I need, so I dont even ask for things. He just always knows.---AP Summer Games website: http://summergames.ap.org---Follow AP Sports Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton Nike Air Force 1 Shoes Sale .

The Redskins announced Monday that the quarterback who led the team to the Super Bowl championship in the 1987 season will serve as a personnel executive. PITTSBURGH -- The path back to the playoff hunt hasnt exactly been daunting for the Pittsburgh Steelers.Four wins over four teams in various stages of development -- the still winless as Christmas approaches Cleveland Browns, the banged up Indianapolis Colts, the erratic New York Giants and the suddenly stumbling Buffalo Bills -- has put Pittsburgh right back where it was in early October: in control of its destiny in the AFC North.And sorry, theyre not sorry about the road theyve taken to get here.You cant say just because we beat a team on their bad day that they (stink), guard Ramon Foster said with a laugh on Monday.It might be that the Steelers (8-5) are playing so well at the moment, it just kind of looks that way. The team that struggled early in the season on the road against so-so opposition isnt just winning games, it is overwhelming them. Consider this: Pittsburgh hasnt trailed any point during its current four-game run.December football is all about running the ball and playing good defense and weve done that, right tackle Marcus Gilbert said.Emphatically.For three hours in the snow on Sunday, the Steelers sent the Bills skidding all over snowy New Era Field in a one-sided 27-20 romp . Running back LeVeon Bell and the Steelers cohesive offensive line mashed Buffalo into submission. Bells franchise record 236 yards rushing -- no small feat for a franchise thats played 1,210 games (playoffs included) across 84 seasons -- came on 38 clock-chewing carries that showcased everything thats made him arguably the most dynamic back in the league.If he wasnt putting his hand on the back of one of his linemen while waiting for a hole to open then he was shedding would-be tacklers in the open field or -- in perhaps his only questionable decision of the day -- launching himself six feet into the air in an attempt to hurdle Buffalos Ronald Darby.While it took Pittsburgh offensive coordinator Todd Haley a full half to realize the most direct path to victory came with the ball in Bells hands instead of an uncharacteristically mistake-pronne Ben Roethlisberger, the line realized it far earlier. Nike Air Force 1 Online Store. Those first three runs LeVeon had, you knew it was going to be a special day, said Foster, who sat out while nursing a bruised chest and watched backup B.J. Finney fill in admirably. The ball wasnt coming out right when we were throwing it. The run is where it was at for us and what better way to do it against the No. 1 (offensive) rushing team in the league?Its a method thats caught on during Pittsburghs resurgence. The Steelers have controlled play early, building 14-0 leads in each of their last four games, forcing opponents to rely on the pass to catch up. That wasnt a problem early in the season as Pittsburghs rebuilt secondary searched for chemistry and its pass rush took a sabbatical. Now putting the ball in the air against the Steelers offers no guarantees.Pittsburgh has picked up 18 of its 31 sacks over the last month and picked off five passes in the process. The Bills came in averaging over 160 yards rushing a game but managed just 67, the fourth time in the Steelers last five games they held the opponents under 100 yards on the ground.

CHICAGO -- Matt Ridley climbed his ladder, scrawled a tribute to his deceased loved ones and high fived his mom when his feet hit the sidewalk.The Cubs winning it all still seemed a bit surreal to him. Yet, there he was writing Ridley Nation high on the brick bleacher wall along Waveland Avenue in honor of his brother, father and uncle.Every time I hear the call of the last out, it almost sounds like its not real -- like its a joke, Ridley said Monday.No joke, the Chicago Cubs at long last won the World Series when they beat the Cleveland Indians last week. And their first championship in 108 years stirred all sorts of emotions.Fans who werent sure they would ever see it happen have been thinking about loved ones who never got to witness it. Theyve been flowing to Wrigley Field in a steady stream, turning the walls and sidewalks outside the famed ballpark into one gigantic chalkboard.The bricks beyond the ivy are jammed with names and notes to family members. There are messages encouraging the team, and drawings, too.It was all in chalk, and it was all about to go away.The Cubs announced Monday they need to remove the messages and artwork due to offseason construction. Fans had until 5 p.m. CST Tuesday, though some were still adding to the walls sidewalks after the deadline. The team also said final photographs will be taken and displayed publicly at a later date.Fans started writing encouraging messages to the team in chalk on the walls outside the bleachers during the run to the Cubs first championship since 1908, and they have continued in such a steady stream there is little room left anywhere outside the ballpark, be it outside the bleachers or near the marquee.Along Sheffield Avenue, beyond right field, Kathleen and Bob Dove of Evanston found a spot a few feet up the wall to pay tribute to her mother. They colored a brick in light blue chalk and wrote Dorothy McGuire in white.The whole time I grew up, it revolved around the Cubs game -- meals, Kathleen Dove said. She knew all the players every year. She would tell me all the statistics, this will be the year. She was a very typical diehard, I mean just brutally diehard, Cubs fan. She would be really amazed at this.Bob Dove, a retired sound technician for Chicago PBS affiliate WTTW, recalled working on a documentary about Bill Veeck Jr. during the last year of his life. And he has little doubt Veeck would have loved the scene playing out along the streets outside Wrigley.We have all of this angst about immigrants and raciial animus and all that stuff, Bob Dove said. Ecco Shoes Canada. . The Cubs victory is the greatest thing to happen in Chicago right now because everything else thats going on right now is so negative. Veeck would love this wall because its representative of his philosophy of being a team for everyone. And he was the person that integrated the American League.Bill Veeck went to work for the Cubs when his father Bill Sr. was team president and was responsible for the ivy being planted in 1937. He also integrated the American League as owner of the Cleveland Indians when he signed Larry Doby and frequently hung out in the Wrigley Field bleachers after selling the White Sox to Jerry Reinsdorf in 1981.Kim Bresnahan of Evanston was on the phone with her friend Nana Sedor in Homer, Alaska, as she looked for space on the wall along Sheffield. Bresnahan was there to pay tribute to her ex-husbands father as well as her friends brother Chris, a loyal fan who died at 16.This victory was for every underdog in the world, Nana Sedor said.The two friends have been following the Cubs for decades, going back to the black cat and the collapse against the New York Mets in 1969. They recalled ditching school to go to Wrigley Field as teenagers and cheer on those Lovable Losers. In some ways, this championship run was like a shock to the system -- a glorious shock to the system.In our lives, we dont have a lot of hope, Bresnahan said. Theres a lot of bad stuff going on. And its like, `Oh my God, if the Cubs can do it in 108 years, we can do anything. Right?Lifelong Cubs fan Becky Ellous cried when the championship drought ended and thought about her grandfather Frank Sokol, who died five years ago at age 87. To him, the Cubs were bozos, yet he would watch every game no matter how bad they were.This would have made him so happy, Ellous said. He would have loved every single minute of it.Along Waveland Avenue, Ridley said he started bawling listening to Eddie Vedders Someday Well Go All The Way heading to the ballpark on Monday.He came with his 12-year-old son Matthew Jr., and his mom Nancy Ridley, who grew up on Addison a few blocks from the famed marquee. She was in the bleachers for Game 6 of the NLCS when then the Cubs beat the Dodgers for their first pennant since 1945. And she was blunt when asked if she thought she would see a moment like this.No, she said. I really didnt. ' ' ' 
Manchester City and England goalkeeper Joe Hart talks through the best and worst of his derby moments on Soccer AM. Air Max 95 Ireland Online . With the Manchester giants set to collide on Super Sunday, the City shot-stopper goes through some memorable moments from down the years.The First - Man Utd 1-2 Man City [Old Trafford] 10 February, 2008 Darius Vassell was on target at Old Trafford It was my first time at Old Trafford to play. It was the 50th year anniversary to the Munich disaster so we wore really old school kits. We literally had the Man Utd badge and the Man City badge. It was a great occasion, Benjani (Mwaruwari) scored and Darius Vassell. It was a dream come true. The Last - Man Utd 0-0 Man City [Old Trafford] 25 October, 2015 The last Manchester derby ended in a bore draw The last derby was a bore draw - it wasnt a great game. Man Utd didnt get many chances. I think Chrissy (Smalling) had a late chance off a (Marouane) Felliani knockdown and just managed to head it wide. It was an important point and hopefully it will prove a more important one at the end of the season.That Goal - Man Utd 2-1 Man City [Old Trafford] 12 February, 2011 Wayne Rooney with that maginificent bicycle kick Obviously the ball deflected off a Nani cross and Wazza (Rooney) swears blind to me that it came off his shin, but his celebration - the fact that it was the winner - it hurt me, it was against me and it cost us the derby. But like I said it was a special moment for a special player.The Best - Man City 1-0 Man Utd [Etihad Stadium] 30 April, 2012 Vincent Kompany headed home the winner in 2012 The best has to be the 6-1 victory - or was it? I dont know. That was a special because of the score, but when we played Man Utd with a couple of games to go, I think it was on a Monday night and a huge deal was made of it all across the world. It was practically a title decider. Vinny (Kompany) scored a fantastic header and went on to win the game 1-0 and went on to win out first ever title.The Worst - Man Utd 4-2 Man City [Old Trafford] 12 April, 2015 Marouane Fellaini scored in the 4-2 win last season We lost the game 4-2 which was an all-round bad game. It was a real low point in a pretty exciting career so far at Manchester City, especially in the last couple of years. It was a really bad game and we really didnt do ourselves justice.Next - Man City v Man Utd [Etihad Stadium] 20 March, 2016 Hart will be out for another famous derby day win on Sunday Weve been disappointing the last two games, two 0-0 draws which is not where we want to be. Weve been struggling a bit for form. Weve got so much that were fighting for and that much riding on the game that we cant really change how you approach the game because we go to win every single game - its all about three points.Watch the Super Sunday clash between Manchester City v Manchester United on Sky Sports 1 HD from 3.30pm.

The victory improved the Czech pairs impressive cup doubles record to 14-1.ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Broncos centre Dan Koppen is out for the season after tearing his left ACL on Sunday in 9-on-7 drills, less than six weeks after rejoining Denver following J.D. Waltons setback in his comeback from ankle surgery. Koppen, an 11-year veteran who played his first nine seasons with the Patriots, was caught in a pile early in the workout and was carted off the field and taken for an MRI, which revealed the season-ending injury. Manny Ramirez, who took most of the snaps at centre during Denvers off-season practices, stepped in for Koppen, whose teams have gone 108-28 in games he has started. Later in the day, the Broncos signed free-agent centre Steve Vallos, pending a physical. Vallos is a six-year veteran who has played in Seattle, Cleveland, Philadelphia and Jacksonville with nine career starts. "I always cringe," a sombre-sounding coach John Fox said after practice. "You never like to see players get injured, particularly severely injured. But you understand when you do this long enough, whether youre a player or a coach, that this happens. You know, you get them back ready. And youve got some guys that have worked hard off of injuries last year and it will be no different this year." Koppens injury is the latest setback to Peyton Mannings patched-up pocket of protection. Left guarrd Zane Beadles was the only starting lineman to come out of last season unscathed. Wholesale Nike Shoes Ireland. All-Pro left tackle Ryan Clady has been limited at training camp since signing a $57.5 million contract earlier this month as he recovers from right shoulder surgery. Tackle Orlando Franklin (toe, shoulder) and guard Chris Kuper (ankle) are also coming off surgeries. Franklin has been back at practice but Kuper hasnt. With Kuper needing another operation this off-season, the Broncos signed right guard Louis Vasquez in free agency. Ramirez started 11 games at right guard last season. "We need that flexibility," Fox said. "When you pick your offensive line, not just for the season, but for game day, you have to pick them from the standpoint of having some flexibility. Youve got to have a swing guard/centre, youve got to have a swing tackle/guard, for the games." Defensive lineman Derek Wolfe also sprained an ankle and didnt return to Saturdays practice, which was the second straight workout in full pads for the Broncos. "Thats the Catch-22 any coach goes through any time of year," Fox said. "Youre getting ready for the season and you need to get into pads because youve got to get in shape and yet youre still trying to make sure youve got enough guys to battle with." ' ' '

ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves are getting older in their starting rotation next season.A lot, lot older.Not content to add one 40-something starter, the Braves made it two by agreeing to terms with 43-year-old Bartolo Colon, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Friday.The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement is expected from the Braves until next week on the reported $12.5 million, one-year deal with Colon.The agreement is subject to a physical and comes one day after the Braves said they had an agreement with 42-year-old knuckleballer R.A. Dickey.MLB.com first reported the Colon deal, which includes a team option for 2018.Colon went 15-8 with a 3.43 ERA for the New York Mets this season. He was picked for the All-Star Game and memorably became the oldest player in baseball history to hit his first career homer when he went deep at San Diego on May 7.While having two 40-year-old starters is not unprecedented -- the 1990 Texas Rangers featured 43-year-old Nolan Ryan and 42-year-old Charlie Hough -- its extremely rare.Still, Colon and Dickey both fit what the Braves were hoping to add as they prepare to move into SunTrust Park: experienced starters who could eat up innings and not require the sort of long-term contracts that would hamper payroll flexibility and stymie the growth of the organizations plethora of promising young pitchers.Colon and Dickey will bolster a shaky rotation that didnt produce anyone with double-figure wins this past season but does feature two-time All-Star JJulio Teheran and hard-throwing Mike Foltynewicz, who led the team with a 9-5 record.

Kemp teamed with first baseman Freddie Freeman to provide a 1-2 punch in the middle of the batting order.The Braves went 50-47 after an 18-46 start, including 12 wins in their final 14 games. General manager John Coppolella made it clear he expects to be a playoff contender next season when the team moves from Turner Field to its new $622 million stadium in suburban Cobb County.Atlanta is still hoping to add another catcher -- former Braves star Brian McCann, now with the New York Yankees, is among those mentioned -- and perhaps pick up another versatile player to help off the bench.Otherwise, the Braves appear to be largely set for 2017.And much, much older.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .

Match factsSeptember 27, 2016 Start time 1000 local (0800 GMT)Big PictureFollowing a Sri Lanka tour that was at times traumatic (the Tests) and at others more encouraging (the ODIs), there is an undoubted sense of anticipation among Australias cricketers about playing in more familiar South African climes. It is no mystery that this is the country where Australia have enjoyed the most away success over the past 20 years or so, for there is minimal adjustment to be made from Australian surfaces. That being said, batsmen and bowlers who strove for weeks to come to grips with Asian pitches and Sri Lankas phalanx of spin bowlers will now have to adjust back up to a little more bounce, pace and quantities of seam bowling.So too will Australias captain Steven Smith need to build a rapport with some new pace-bowling assets, after the decision to rest both Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood from this tour. Daniel Worrall, Joe Mennie and Chris Tremain have all performed well for their states, but the shift to international-level scrutiny and responsibility always stretches the mental resources of young cricketers. A meeting with Ireland in South Africa may be to the slightly less demanding end of the international cricketing scale, but Smith will need to make sure his bowling attack is in good discipline nonetheless. They are being mentored, too, by a new figure - David Saker, the former England bowling coach, is on his first tour as Darren Lehmanns assistant.Ireland, meanwhile, have been stung by a heavy defeat at the hands of South Africa, and will want to make amends against opponents who have also served as useful allies in terms of encouraging this emerging teams rise to the cusp of full international status in the game. The flip side of administrative assistance from Cricket Australia has been several bruising defeats for William Porterfields men, but it should also be stated that their most recent meeting last year ended in a creditable 23-run margin of defeat. Whether the Irish can better that result against an Australian side gearing up to face South Africa will soon be known.Form guideAustralia WWWLW (last five completed matches, most recent first)Ireland LLWLWIn the spotlightWhen he returned home after the first two ODIs in Sri Lanka Steven Smith looked, for the first time in his brief Australian captaincy tenure, like he needed a break. This was as much a mental refresh as a physical one, ensuring his mind would be cleared of the failings of the Test side in Asia ahead of assignments in contrasting conditions. David Warner shone as stand-in captain during Smiths absence, and the full-time leader will be eager to reassert his primacy in charge by starting well against Ireland. He has spoken of wanting the Australian side to be moree assertive under his leadership, and it will be fascinating to see how far chests are puffed out at Benoni. Wholesale Adidas Shoes Canada. Celebrations of a dramatic County Championship victory with Middlesex did not stop Tim Murtagh from fronting up for Ireland against South Africa a few days later. He put in a reasonable shift too, going for fewer than six runs an over as South Africa teed off against other members of the Ireland attack. Against an Australian side new in the country and coming off a trip to Sri Lanka, it will be up to Murtagh in particular to probe for weaknesses in techniques that must now revert to more conventional, harder-wicket methods.Teams newsAustralia named their playing XI on the eve of the match, with right-arm fast bowler Daniel Worrall set to make his ODI debut.**Australia: 1 David Warner, 2 Usman Khawaja, 3 Steven Smith (capt), 4 George Bailey, 5 Travis Head, 6 Mitchell Marsh, 7 Matthew Wade (wk), 8 John Hastings, 9 Adam Zampa, 10 Scott Boland, 11 Daniel WorrallNiall OBrien, who was forced to sit out the match against South Africa because he slipped and hit his head in the bathroom before the game, has been ruled out of the Australia game with a concussion.* Andy McBrine is a possible inclusion for Ireland should they wish to change things up after the heavy loss to South Africa.Ireland (possible): 1 William Porterfield (capt), 2 Paul Stirling, 3 John Anderson, 4 Gary Wilson (wk), 5 Kevin OBrien, 6 Sean Terry, 7 Stuart Poynter, 8 George Dockrell , 9 Tim Murtagh, 10 Craig Young, 11 Peter ChasePitch and conditionsSouth Africa showed there are plenty of runs in the Benoni surface, although by the end of the day it had slowed up and was aiding JP Duminys off breaks.
