NEW YORK -- Brandon Pirri is fitting in perfectly in his first season with the New York Rangers. Howie Morenz Canadiens Jersey .Im glad were the ones who got him, Derek Stepan said after Pirri scored twice to help the Rangers beat the Boston Bruins 5-2 on Wednesday night. Thats for sure.Pirri has four goals and two assists in seven games. The left wing signed with the Rangers as a free agent after splitting last season with Florida and Anaheim.You guys can all see he can shoot the puck, Stepan said. Hes got a knack for the net. Its not easy to score goals in this league and he seems to be in those areas to score. Thats a difficult thing and, to me, thats a skill. If you have it, its special and its rare.Rick Nash, Kevin Hayes and Jimmy Vesey also scored for New York, and Henrik Lundqvist stopped 27 shots. The Rangers won their third straight game, overcoming a 2-0 deficit to improve to 5-2-0.David Pastrnak and Austin Czarnik scored for Boston. The Bruins have lost three straight to drop to 3-4-0.You know you sure are not happy with the outcome, Bruins coach Claude Julien said. We are here to win hockey games and not pat ourselves on the back when we think you deserve it.Zane McIntyre made 26 saves in his first NHL start. He was called up prior to Bostons 5-0 home loss to Minnesota on Tuesday night to back up Malcolm Subban due to injuries to Tuukka Risk and Anton Khudobin.Zane played unbelievable, Boston defenseman Torey Krug said. He made some big saves for us even when we were down 3-2, 4-2, 5-2. He kept going. He was still coming up with some big saves. It could have been a lot worse. Shame on us for not helping him out more.Down 2-0 after the first, the Rangers scored three times in the final 10:44 of the second.Nash began the comeback with a power-play goal at 9:16. He curled to the net before corralling a rebound of Stepans point shot and flipping it over McIntyre for his third of the season.Hayes tied it with 3:25 left in the second, banking a shot from behind the net off of McIntyres pants.Pirris power-play goal with 36 seconds left made it 3-2. He ripped a shot from the right circle that was in the net before McIntrye could get his glove up. New York finished the game 2 for 6 on the man advantage, while the Bruins were 0 for 1.We worked hard and we drew a lot of penalties, Pirri said. When you get that many (man advantage) opportunities you have to cash in. It brings a lot of momentum even if youre not scoring but youre generating chances. So thats what we focus on every time and then from there you let the skill take over.It was not all positive for the Rangers in the second, with Dan Girardi missing two shifts following a hit from Pastrnak, who was assessed a minor penalty for an illegal check to the head. Girardi leaped in the air to play a loose puck in the neutral zone and, as he came down, Pastrnak drove his shoulder into the upper body of the New York defenseman.Girardi said he didnt really see him coming until the last second, but noted the hit landed in the front of the face so it wasnt like a forehead or side of the head blow. He added he underwent concussion protocol.Pirri made it 4-2 2:23 into the third with his fourth of the season. Vesey scored on a tap-in 43 seconds later.The Bruins opened the scoring Pastrnaks fifth of the season 10 seconds into the game. The lead grew to 2-0 14:34 later when Czarnik scored his first goal in the NHL. Czarnik fired a shot from inside the blue line that New York defenseman Brady Skjei blocked, but Henrik Lundqvist appeared to lose track of the puck and it bounced across the goal line.We didnt start the way we wanted, New York coach Alain Vigneault said. We know.Game notes Prior to the game, the Bruins announced Czarnik had been called up from Providence of the AHL. Czarnik had a goal and two assists in two games with Providence this season. Czarnik, 23, did play in two NHL games earlier this season with the Bruins. ... Boston also announced RW David Backes had his olecranon bursa removed from his elbow on Monday.... New York lost fourth-line RW Josh Jooris for the game with a separated shoulder and is out indefinitely, Vigneault said after the game.UP NEXT:BRUINS: Play at Detroit Saturday night.RANGERS: Play at Carolina Friday night. Al Montoya Canadiens Jersey .

BOSTON -- August continues to be kind to the Kansas City Royals. Nicolas Meloche Jersey .Eric Hosmer and Alex Gordon homered, and Ian Kennedy allowed one run through five innings as the Kansas City Royals continued their monthlong hot streak with a 6-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Friday night.Kansas City has won 11 of its last 12 games and is 18-6 in August.Hosmer homered for the second time this season off Red Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright (13-6), who took the loss in his first game back off the disabled list with a right shoulder strain, giving up five runs and seven hits.Honestly, you just have to swing hard and hope the ball doesnt break. But if it does, it breaks into your bat, Hosmer said.Kennedy (9-9) had a chance set a club record by allowing one or fewer runs in six straight outings of at least six innings. But he left with a runner on after 5 1/3 innings and wound up charged for two earned runs in the game. He finished with nine strikeouts.Kelvin Herrera earned his 10th save.Lorenzo Cain added a solo homer in the eighth inning.Wright lost despite going at least six innings for the 10th time in 15 starts. Before Friday he had not allowed more than one home run in any of his previous 26 starts, which was the fourth-longest active streak in the majors. It also had been the longest by a Red Sox pitcher since Pedro Martinez did it over 44 starts.I had a little bit of a feeling with Steven Wright being on the DL and not pitching, that knuckleball is a feel pitch, Royals manager Ned Yost said. My thought was `Maybe its going to take him an inning or two to settle in. I was right.Mookie Betts had five hits and two RBI for the Red Sox. Dustin Pedroia added four hits and an RBI.Thats just how it goes sometimes, Betts said. Sometimes we score the ones were not expecting and then when we you need to score, sometimes it just doesnt happen.The Royals jumped on Wright at the outset, taking a 5-0 lead in the first inning on a three-run shot by Hosmer, followed quickly by a two-run blast by Gordon.Boston had three hits and got one run back in its half of first. It had a chance to add more after loading the bases with one out, but the potential rally stalled when Sandy Leon and Jackie Bradley, Jr. both struck out.TRAINERS ROOMRoyals: RHP Wade Davis (right flexor strain) is expected to throw for Triple-A Omaha on Saturday, and then possibly again on Monday. Yost said he doesnt anticipate him returning before Sept. 1.Red Sox: Rookie LF Andrew Benintendi went through another series of tests Friday which reaffirmed the original diagnosis of no structural damage to his sprained left knee. He was hurt during Bostons loss to the Rays Wednesday night. Benintendi was walking around the clubhouse with no brace Friday. Obviously its something you dont plan on, he said. Its unfortunate that it happened and Im just going to try to get as healthy as possible as quickly as I can. ... RHP Koji Uehara, who has been on the DL since July 20 with right pectoral sprain, threw a bullpen session Friday.STREAK ENDSKansas Citys bullpen extended its scoreless streak to 41 1/3 innings pitching before allowing a run in the ninth inning. It was the longest streak in the majors since the Kansas City As went 44 innings in 1966.OLYMPIC HOMECOMINGNeedham, Massachusetts native and Olympic medalist Aly Raisman began her homecoming tour Friday by throwing out the first pitch before the game.Raisman won her second Olympic gold medal as a member of the U.S. womens gymnastics team in Rio, as well as two silver medals in the womens individual all-around and floor exercise.Before tossing her pitch, Raisman took off the medals she was wearing and let David Ortiz wear them while he caught for her.UP NEXTRoyals: LHP Danny Duffy (11-1, 2.66 ERA) will make his 20th start of the season and 100th of his career on Saturday. He earned his 10th straight win in Kansas Citys 2-1 win over Minnesota on Sunday, holding the Twins to one run and eight hits. His next strikeout will be the 500th of his career.Red Sox: LHP David Price (12-8, 4.00) leads the majors with nine starts of at least eight innings this season. His 2.01 career ERA against the Royals is the third-lowest among active pitchers. Blake Comeau Avalanche Jersey .C. -- Kemba Walker and the Charlotte Bobcats got off to a fast start, and the Sacramento Kings were never quite able to catch up. Erik Johnson Avalanche Jersey . -- The Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake played to a 0-0 tie Saturday night that left the top of the Western Conference standings unchanged. http://www.hockeyavalancheproshop.com/semyon-varlamov-jersey/ . The Olympic champion curler and TSN curling analyst immediately went online to look at the Halls long list of honoured members. Thats when the enormity of the honour sunk in. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti acknowledged Saturday that the results of Novembers U.S. presidential election could weigh heavily on his citys chances of hosting the 2024 Olympics, saying that a victory by Donald Trump could turn off International Olympic Committee voters.Garcetti also told The Associated Press that Los Angeles could offer the last best hope for the United States to host the Summer Olympics again before the American people begin tuning out from the Games.Garcetti, a 45-year-old Democrat and supporter of Hillary Clinton, is in Brazil to observe the Rio de Janeiro Games and pitch his citys bid to IOC members. One of the main topics of conversation with the delegates has been the U.S. election -- and the prospects of a Trump presidency.I think for some of the IOC members, they would say, Wait a second, can we go to a country like that, where weve heard things that we take offense to? Garcetti said. But I think that gives us even more urgency globally, where we can say, This is something that is a different strength maybe than the things that youve heard or the things you believe. I think we continue no matter what the outcome of the election is.A new U.S. president will be in office when the IOC selects the 2024 host city in September 2017.Los Angeles, which hosted the Olympics in 1932 and 1984, is competing with Paris, Rome and Budapest, Hungary.Everything that were going through right now in the United States politically, I dont want us to be a country that turns into itself, said Garcetti, who spoke at the Democratic convention in Philadelphia last month. I think we have to look outward to the world.The IOCs 98 members come from all over the world, and Trumps comments on Mexicans, Muslims and other issues wont encourage them to vote for a U.S. city, according to Garcetti.They wonder, Is America going to take this strange turn? Garcetti said. Were there to be an election result that is less international, more inward focused, maybe theres even greater urgency to a bid like this.Garcetti adde: But even if that doesnt happen, even the threat of that, the talk of that, the idea that we exclude people based on who they are at our borders, gives us urgency to having things like the Olympics undersscore who we are and what were about. Joe Colborne Jersey. os Angeles bid chairman Casey Wasserman said the city will continue to push the bid on its own technical merits.I dont think you can judge a country by who runs for president, he said. I think you should judge a country on who is the president and their beliefs and their policies. And clearly thats something the members will take into account. But thats something I cant control.Los Angeles is seeking to bring the Summer Olympics back to the U.S. for the first time since Atlanta hosted the 1996 Games. The bid follows failed attempts by New York and Chicago for the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, respectively.I dont know if this is the last best hope, but I do think that after a few bids, after a while, there will be real feeling of people tuning out in America, a new generation that isnt connected with the legacy sports, said Garcetti, who attended Rios opening ceremony on Friday night, 32 years after going to the close of the 84 Games as a 13-year-old.Recent American bids have suffered from anti-U.S. sentiment among some members in the European-dominated IOC, and Garcetti said he is working to change that.There may be a general anti-Americanism, but once you create a relationship with somebody, it becomes a relationship with Eric and that person, he said. As we get to know each other over time, they realize you cant slap a title, just like American and a caricature of what that means on anybody.I want to listen, Garcetti said. I dont want to just come in and say, Were the Americans, we get the most medals, we bring in the sponsorships. That turns people off.He acknowledged there could be a backlash among some IOC members to what they consider U.S. meddling in global sports affairs, including the Justice Department investigation of world soccer body FIFA and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agencys call for a total ban on Russias Olympic team over state-sponsored doping.Ive been very careful to say, Look, what prosecutors or anti-doping officials do, at least in our country, is completely separate from what a mayor or a city government is about. Were not involved at all. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

LAS VEGAS -- NASCARs top circuit has been called the Winston Cup, Nextel Cup and Sprint Cup. Puma Basket Heart Dk .Starting in 2017, the sport could have a Cup-less name, one of many changes expected as Monster Energy takes over as title sponsor with a desire to attract younger fans to a sagging sport.Young people set trends in fashion and then older people adapt, said Mark Hall, Monsters chief marketing officer. Fashion is set by a small group of influencers. The challenge is to make your product relevant to that group and then have them influence the others. If weve been successful in the past, weve followed that model.A decade ago, NASCAR was the cool sport, drawing record television ratings and numerous sponsors as it branched out from its Southeastern roots. The recession hit the sport hard, then the fans started to scatter and TV ratings dwindled. Sprint, which inherited the sponsorship of the sports top series when it merged with Nextel, announced in December 2014 it wouldnt renew.It took nearly two years to find a replacement, and its believed Monster is paying much less. But NASCAR hopes the relationship with the California-based maker of caffeine-filled energy drinks will reinvigorate an aging fan base.NASCAR Chairman Brian France kept saying fun and edgy in describing Monster at Thursdays news conference announcing the agreement.They get at a millennial audience in a different way than weve ever been associated with, France said. They know what theyre doing.France declined to say what the name of the circuit will be in 2017. NASCARs press release of the multiyear agreement referred to NASCARs premier series, hinting the Cup name will go away. An official announcement of the name and logo is expected within a couple weeks.Weve got some real good options on that, France said.NASCAR and Monster will have to move quickly. A marketing plan, signage and other sponsorship issues are pressing ahead of the Feb. 26 season-opening Daytona 500.Its a brand that can translate to the youth, said driver Kurt Busch, whose car has been sponsored by Monster since 2012. Yet its a brand thats respected in all of motorsports.The culture change from a cellular company as face of the sport to an energy drink targeted to millennials was apparent as models in form-fitting outfits flanked both ends of the stage at Thursdays announcement.We want to bring some good shows and entertainment for NASCAR fans so they can interact with our brand and understand what our culture is all about, said Mitch Covington, Monsters vice president of sports marketing. Of course, they will have met the fabulous Monster Energy girls. Were going to have a lot of fun at NASCAR, both in the parking lot and inside the oval. Puma x Rihanna Slippers . Haas said he "felt a lot of pain" in his right shoulder when he slammed his racket to the ground in frustration after losing his serve at 3-3 in the first set. Puma Suede Heart Satin Magenta . Both players have lower body injuries that will keep them out of the lineup until at least January 31, which is the first game they can be activated from IR. http://www.rihannacreepersdk.com/puma-suede-creepers-rihanna-danmark/puma-suede-beige.html . There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season. NEWPORT, R.I. -- Top-seeded Steve Johnson advanced to the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships quarterfinals Wednesday, beating Japans Yuichi Sugita, 6-1, 6-4.Coming off a career-best finish in a Grand Slam, the 26-year-old Johnson needed just 20 minutes to win the first set and 59 to close the match. It was his first on Newports grass this week after the top four seeds were given byes.Johnson was one of six Americans in action Wednesday on the grounds of the International Tennis Hall of Fame.Defending champion Rajeev Ram, a two-time winner in Newport -- also in 2009 when he won his only other career ATP tourney -- lost to seventh-seeded Dudi Sela of Israel, 6-3, 6-4.Second-seeded Ivo Karlovic of Croatia rallied past Canadian qualifier Frank Dancevic, 3-6, 7-6 (5), 6-4.Ranked No. 25 on the tour coming into the week, Johnson served an ace on the first point of the match and lost just one point in the third through fifth games of the opening set.He had it a little tougher in the second, but continued his solid season on grass, raising his record to 11-3.I just served well in the first, he said. He returned well in the second. I just think that makes it tricky when you dont have to play any points in the first.Johnson lost in the fourth round to Roger Federer at WWimbledon. Puma Rihanna Sko. Johnson won his first career singles title, also on grass, at Nottingham last month.Im comfortable, but Im still uncomfortable, he said about the surface. Theres a lot to learn, a lot to improve on. Thats why Im here to try and keep getting better.He said hes looking forward to heading to the Olympics in Rio next month and -- unlike other athletes -- hasnt considered not attending.I never thought about not going, he said.Ram said he had trouble with the breezy conditions and didnt play well.I felt he dealt with the conditions really well, had good energy the whole way through and he was just better than me today, he said.John Isner was the last to win consecutive Newport titles, doing it in 2011 and 12.American Donald Young, the No. 8 seed, joined Johnson in advancing Wednesday by defeating fellow countryman Stefan Kozlov, 6-0, 6-4.Americans Brian Baker and Dennis Novikov also were ousted.Baker lost to No. 4 seed Marcos Baghdatis of Cypriot, 6-4, 6-3. Novikov lost to Dominican Victor Estrella Burgos, 7-6 (3), 6-3.In other play, Switzerlands Marco Chiudinelli beat Australian John-Patrick Smith, 1-6, 6-3, 6-3. 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 ' ' '

Most times, guys dont hit my off-speed very good, but they hit all my off-speed pitches today.Porcello allowed one run on three hits over seven innings and became the first Boston pitcher since Dave Boo Ferriss to begin a year by winning his first 12 decisions in Fenway.Betts two-run homer in the first cleared the Green Monster and made it 2-0.His second, a three-run shot into the first row of Monster seats, keyed a seven-run second. Bradley hit his off the Pesky Pole, and rookie Andrew Benintendi and Pedroia each drove in a run during the inning.Betts third homer was a three-run shot that caromed off a billboard above the Monster in a six-run fifth.Michael Bourn had a solo homer and RBI single for the Diamondbacks.

It consumed three days and a total of 11 hours, 5 minutes and was decided 70-68 in the frantic fifth set.It was the longest tennis match ever and required a staggering 183 games.On Peoples Sunday, Isner got tangled up with Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. While it wont be remembered as fondly by historians as the epic of 2010, it was something special.Tsonga, saving a match point along the way, won 6-7 (3), 3-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2, 19-17.The match, played over two days, went 4 hours, 25 minutes, with the fifth set alone running 2 hours, 8 minutes.Isner had 38 aces and 101 winners. Tsonga had 21 aces and 88 winners.It was tied for the fourth-longest fifth set in a major in the Open era, matching the 1987 first-round match here between Paul McNamee and Todd Nelson.As the fifth set progressed, did that endless match flash into his consciousness?No, Isner said afterward. He was serving very well. I knew the match could go a long way. But I wasnt thinking about six years ago.It was a rousing comeback for Tsonga, who like Isner is 31 years old. He dropped the first two sets Saturday before winning the third in a critical tiebreaker. The two players came back Sunday and played the final two sets.Its worth noting the No. 12-seeded Tsonga was actually seeded higher than No. 18 Isner. Tsonga is a two-time semifinalist here, in 2011 and 2012.Its good to be alive, said Tsonga, who is 6-0 in five-set matches at Wimbledon.The key moment for Tsonga came when he was serving at 15-16. With Isner holding match point, at 30-40, he came up with a forehand winner to bring it back to deuce before holding. Isner faced a break point at 17-all, but an unreturnable serve bailed him out.The double-edged sword for Isner on the grass here: It helps his thunderous serve go through the service box (43 percent of his serves were not returned), but it also creates low, skidding shots that are difficult for someone that tall to reach down and dig out.It was Isners third straight loss here in the third round, and Wimbledon remains the only major in which he has failed to advance to the fourth round.It was the ninth time Isner has gone to at least 6-all in a fifth set in his career. Understandably, he is in favor of a fifth-set tiebreaker in majors; the US Open is the only Grand Slam to employ the fifth-set tiebreaker.I would, Isner said. Ive said that a bunch.Tsongas reward for persistence is another quick turnaround: Monday, hes got fellow Frenchman Richard Gasquet, who defeated Albert Ramos-Vinolas in four sets. Gasquet and Tsonga have split eight career matches.In addition to Tsonga and Gasquet, Mahut and Lucas Pouille give France four men in the round of 16, the most for any country.Its a little bit sad because a few days ago, I won my first match, and I wait two days to play my second match, Tsonga said. They didnt schedule me on the second day. Now I have to play three days in a row.Yeah, thats a little bit unfair, but Im prepared for it. Tomorrow is going to be another day. NHL Jerseys Wholesale .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. Cheap NHL Jerseys From China . -- Eastern Kentucky thrives off creating havoc for others. http://www.cheapnhljerseyssale.us/ . LOUIS -- St. ESPN NRL expert Brett Kimmorley analyses another weekend of rugby league action, and explains what he discovered in round 18 of the NRL in his latest edition of Set of Six.Kieran Foran has been extremely brave at such a difficult timeMental health is an enormous social issue. Kieran Foran has been brave enough to stand up and quit the game to take time away for himself, despite many questioning his decision.Mental health can target and challenge anyone. Forans brave decision sends a clear message to everyone in society that if someone has problems then they need to seek help and shouldnt be afraid to share their feelings.Hopefully, Foran can deal with his difficult situation and ultimately come out of this as a stronger person.Parramatta should be praised for their resiliencyThe Parramatta Eels were unbelievable on Friday night. How were they able to win?After everything theyve been through, the Eels trailed 18-6 and were reduced to just 15 men due to concussion and injury, but were courageous and rallied to beat the Sydney Roosters who had everything to play for.Coach Brad Arthur should be congratulated for their gritty attitude. They have a wonderful culture, theyre courageous and gutsy.Parramatta must be given credit for their ability to keep fighting despite all of their off-field dramas. Mathematically, theyre still a chance of finals football but next week is a big test for them against the Penrith Panthers.The Cronulla Sharks make it 13 in a rowI honestly thought the streak was going to come to an end against the Penrith Panthers due to a number of their Origin stars, such as Paul Gallen, Jack Bird, Wade Graham, Andrew Fifita and James Maloney, unavailable.However, the players who lined up in their place stepped up in a big way. Watching the Sharks beat the Panthers, it seemed like they didnt even have any of their representative players missing from the side.Theyve got plenty of depth and a lot of confidence at the moment. Theyve had a great run with injuries this season, and touch wood they dont suffer any, but if they do, they have the capability to slot someone in and not miss a beat to do the required job.Its a significant accomplishment for the club and I believe they have the best roster in the competition. Theyve really managed the salary cap well, and the next 18-24 months are really important they are to sustain a long run with this roster of players.The Bulldogs hhave the biggest forward pack in the NRLThe Canterbury Bulldogs are massive. Cheap Hockey Jerseys. Their forward pack is the biggest and most physical forward pack in the competition and they also have a high-skill level. Its unbelievable how they play. They dont play with the traditional dynamic halves.They have Sam Kasiano who is the biggest halfback in the competition. Kasiano comes off the bench when players are tiring and creates havoc, even though he weighs 120 kilograms.They were missing Josh Jackson and David Klemmer on Saturday night due to Origin duties and still fielded a huge forward pack consisting of James Graham, Greg Eastwood, Aiden Tolman, Tony Williams and Kasiano.The Bulldogs will go close to winning the premiership this season and their coach Des Hasler who knows how to win.Wests Tigers cant afford inconsistent effortsWests Tigers were very good for 50 minutes against an excellent football side in the Canterbury Bulldogs. The Wests Tigers have plenty of football left in them for the rest of the season but you cant afford to make mistakes at critical times, especially against the better sides.Wests Tigers were possibly better than they expected to be and they couldve won the game but theyll rue the costly errors that prevented them from extending their lead. Itll be a lesson for them against the top sides that you need to minimalise mistakes to keep yourself in the game.Coached by Des Hasler, the Bulldogs have played finals football for the last few years so they know how to manage the pressure, and in the end, they were too good and got the job done.Next generation ushered in for Wests TigersIt was a both a thrill and a great moment of pride for me when Jacob Liddle made his NRL debut for Wests Tigers on Saturday. I coached the Wests Tigers Under 20s Holden Cup side last year and its really special to see some of the kids youve coached make their debut.A number of players I coached, like Te Maire Martin along with Liddle, have made their first-grade debuts this season.Liddle appears to be the player to take over from hooker Robbie Farah in the near future. He did a wonderful job at the club last year and they are grooming him for when Farah departs.For me, its nice to see some of these kids youve coached start to achieve some of their dreams.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 ' ' '

Clayton Kershaw: 2nd winning pitcher in a 1-0 victory over the Cubs in postseason history, joining Babe Ruth. Ryan Suter USA Jersey . Jack Johnson USA Jersey . Tracey comes to the Blue Bombers after spending over a decade with Queens University. Most recently he was the schools assistant football coach. James van Riemsdyk USA Jersey . While hell be dialed in to that tournament on a course he loves, you can forgive him if his eyes glance down the calendar just a bit, towards April. http://www.hockeyteamusajerseystore.com/Phil-Kessel-Jersey/ . Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey last Sunday. The fine is the fourth this season for Goldson. He was fined $30,000 for a hit on the New York Jets Jeff Cumberland in Week 1. DETROIT -- Even before the ball reached him, Lions cornerback Darius Slay knew that Carson Wentz had made his first costly NFL mistake.I was surprised he even threw that, Slay said of Wentzs first NFL interception, which helped the Lions to a 24-23 win over the previously undefeated Philadelphia Eagles.I was in great position, so Im like, OK. But then I looked in the air and I said, Oh, the ball is coming for real. Hes really throwing this. Oh well, its time for his first career pick. I was like, Oh, this is me right here, for sure. Hes a talented guy, man. I was kind of surprised.After a Matt Prater go-ahead field goal, the Eagles got the ball back on their own 25-yard line with 1:28 remaining. The Eagles had no timeouts, but trailing by just a point, had time to work themselves into field goal range. Instead, Wentz unleashed a long pass down the right side for wide receiver Nelson Agholor on first down that Slay hauled in to ice the game.Before the interception, Wentz had thrown 134 passes without an interception, a short-lived NFL rookie record for pass attempts without throwing a pick that was broken later Sunday by Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.Eagles coach Doug Pederson indicated afterward that Agholor was third on the progression for that play. Wentz, though, saw something in the defensive secondary out of the huddle and decided to take a shot.You always want to get the drive started on the right foot, especially in those situations, but the coverage kind of dictated that, and we didnt maake the play, they made a great play, and thats how it worked, Wentz said. Kevin Shattenkirk USA Jersey. It was kind of an alert. He wasnt the first read, but it was kind of an alert, the way the safeties played. I went to him and they made the play, and not us.Slay and Agholor fought for positioning, and it was Slay who ended up coming away with the ball, grabbing it just over Agholors outstretched hand.I should have located it better, Agholor said. Where it was positioned, I was trying my best to fade and locate it, but it put me in a poor position to where I couldnt defend it the way I would have, or come down with it offensively.Overall, Wentz had another strong outing. He finished 25-of-33 for 238 yards with two touchdowns and the pick, and helped the Eagles come back from a 21-10 halftime deficit. Through four games, hes thrown for 1,007 yards with seven touchdowns and one interception.I didnt believe all the hype at first, but hes a very, very great decision [maker], Slay said. But right then I just made a better play.Now 3-1, the Eagles look to regroup with a trip to Washington on deck.You never enjoy losing. Thats just the way it is, Wentz said. But its the NFL. Its hard to win in this league. They played a great game. Weve got to go back and watch the tape, clean up some of the mistakes -- like I mentioned, some of those things we can control ourselves -- and just go onto the next week. Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Since Day 1 of the Rio games, Olympic fans have been channeling American fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, taking the proverbial foil to media outlets for their disappointing coverage of female athletes. Blake Comeau Jersey .Theres been plenty to critique, beginning with NBC commentator Dan Hicks crediting Hungarian swimmer Katinka Hosszus husband/trainer as the man responsible for her world-record performance on the opening day of competition. That was just the first in an ever-widening pool of sexist remarks from media all over the globe - a pool as troubling as that mysteriously green diving pool.In print and on television, female athletes have been reduced to their relationships to men, whether it be a coach, a husband or a similarly skilled male athlete. Weve seen their athletic accomplishments glossed over in favor of conversations about their hair, makeup, nail polish or love lives. One Olympic star was even asked if shed rather win a medal or be thinner. For real.Youve likely already heard about a lot of these offenses as the pushback from fans, more woke media members and even some male Olympians has been loud and swift. From The Independent to The Guardian to Mashable to HuffPo, reporters have curated media missteps and resulting reactions, revealing a world that struggles to describe the female athlete in terms befitting her achievements.Lindy West wrote a helpful guide to covering female Olympians in the Guardian last week, imploring media members, Dont bring your sex feelings into it. ... There is not currently a vacuum of serious, well-rounded coverage of mens sports. There is not a historic precedent of mens bodies eclipsing their accomplishments, and, in turn, undermining their credibility and hobbling their upward mobility in every major industry. It is OK to have sex feelings. Just watch where youre spraying them.Former Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, who joined me and advocate Jess Weiner on my Thats What She Said podcast this week, knows about the challenges of being in the Olympic spotlight all too well.Its frustrating for female athletes, she said. I always tell people that as an athlete, especially a female athlete, we want you to critique us. We want you to continue to nitpick and pull us apart, but do it off of our performances and off of our skills, rather than something that has nothing to do with our sports.?A study recently released by the Cambridge University Press analyzed multibillion word databases of written and spoken English language from a huge range of media sources and found that while male athletes are usually described in sporting terms, language around women in sport focuses disproportionately on the appearance, clothes and personal lives of women, highlighting a greater emphasis on aesthetics over athletics.Intentional misogyny is not always at the root of these offenses. Women have long been valued in society first and foremost for their appearance, and media has long portrayed women across all professions and industries through the male gaze. As a result, whether its female scientists or female athletes, it can become almost instinctual to sexualize, regardless of how inappropriate the context. While we can all agree that Olympians are some of the fittest, most attractive people on the planet, their athletic achievements, not their looks, should be the focus of commentary.The fact that sexualizing women is deeply embedded in our society doesnt excuse reporters. Part of the job must be to filter their initial reactions before putting them into words and sharing them. And more and more, fans are taking media to task for their failing filters. No phone calls or letters to the editor these days, a simple tweet (or several thousand) will do.The tweets add up and have already forced some media members and outlets to issue mea culpas within days -- even hours -- of their remarks. While its disappointing to see how widespread the sexist coverage has been, across all sports and countries, the pushback from viewers is a solid start toward correcting behavior.One of the best parts of the Olympics is seeing female athletes given (nearly) equal air time to their male counterparts. Our nation becomes captivated with the athletic achievements of women who have spent their lives pursuing greatness. And while tone-deaf commentary may sometimes sour those moments, the lasting images, moments and memories are of the dominant athletic performances. Young girls grow up with Simone Biles and Katie Ledecky on the front pages and in their social feeds, replacing, even if oh-so-briefly, Hollywood starlets and reality stars.Theres work to be done to give female athletes the respect theyve earned. But the fact that more and more people seem to be aware of the discrepancy in coverage and expect better from the media is a step in the right direction. Lanny McDonald Avalanche Jersey . That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. Lanny McDonald Jersey . -- There were so many positives from the Orlando Magics first victory of the season that it was hard for coach Jacque Vaughn to stop praising his players. http://www.hockeyavalanchestore.us/John-Wensink-Jersey/ . While hell be dialed in to that tournament on a course he loves, you can forgive him if his eyes glance down the calendar just a bit, towards April. Nick Kyrgios rained down 23 aces as he beat David Goffin in a 4-6, 6-3, 7-5 comeback to win the Japan Open and claim his third title of the season on Sunday.The Australian added the Japanese event to the first two trophies of his career, which he won earlier in 2016 in Marseille and Atlanta.Kyrgios spent two hours on court against his Belgian opponent, saving 11 of a dozen break points while breaking Goffin twice - including in the penultimate game which set up victory.He put his big game on display for eager Japanese fans, who adopted the 21-year-old as a favourite after the early elimination of national tennis hero Kei Nishikori.Kyrgios put in a massive effort to start turning the momentum after dropping the firsst set to the fifth-seeded Goffin. Francois Beauchemin Jersey. The 15th-ranked Kyrgios saved five break points to hold for 2-1 in the second set and then broke in the next game on his way to levelling at a set each.In the third, his break of Goffin for 6-5 made the different as he served out the win a game later.Victory helped Kyrgios in the points chase to the season-ending finals next month in London, with the Australian moving to provisional 12th for the eight-man World Tour Finals.Kyrgios now stands 38-14 for the season and he becomes just the fifth mens player this year to win three titles or more. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

The goal of any promoted side is simple: avoid relegation and secure a second consecutive season in the top flight, allowing the club to further establish itself at the Premier League level. Cal Clutterbuck Islanders Jersey . Collecting a slice of the television revenue doesnt hurt either.With both Middlesbrough and Hull City shooting to achieve that same goal, Monday nights clash between the sides at the Riverside Stadium is massive.Middlesbrough (2-6-5) entered the weekend in 15th place and struggling a bit as they find themselves winless in their last three league matches and 10 of 11. The clubs wins came against Sunderland and Bournemouth, and Mondays clash represents an opportunity to better their own standing while simultaneously pushing a relegation rival further into the abyss.Boros most complete performance of the season came in an Oct. 29 2-0 victory over Bournemouth their first home win of the campaign, but its been a struggle to come up with another complete performance.Last weeks effort against Leicester City held some positives as the club took the early lead after 13 minutes thanks to a goal from Alvaro Negredo, and again seized the lead on 71 minutes through Negredo, but Islam Slimanis stoppage-time penalty forced the clubs to share the spoils.Manager Aitor Karanka was proud of his sides spirited performance.We showed again we are a really good side and how well we can play, against Leicester who won the league last season, he said. We should have won the game and I think we were the better team. But football can be unfair and today we didnt get the three points we deserved.But as they move on from last week and focus on Mondays tilt, midfielder Marten de Roon believes his side has shown marked improvement and its only a matter of time before the results come.Honestly, I think in the last few weeks weve been improving as a team in every single game, the midfielder said. I think we were a bit unlucky against Chelsea with the 1-0 defeat and against Leicester when we shouldve taken three points.But it gives us confidence that were playing better and showing that we can compete with anybody then finally the points will come.The Dutchman also realises the significance of this match.Hull is a big match, he added. Monday is a massive opportunity for us to show the people around us that were above them.Hull City (3-2-8) have a much tougher road ahead as the Tigers find themselves in the relegation zone with just 11 points from their 13 matches. They have just one victory, a 2-1 result over Southampton on Nov. 6, in their last 11 league matches and will need to string a few wins together if they hope to pull themselves out of the drop zone.The win over Southampton saw Michael Dawson and Robert Snodgrass strike in a span of two minutes, but since that match they looked listless in a 3-0 loss to Sunderland, and out of ideas in the final third of last weeks 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion.On the positive side, the club will bring some positive momentum into Mondays clash after knocking off Newcastle United in midweek to secure a spot in the EFL Cup semifinals against Manchester United.Even with the success in the Cup, midfielder Tom Huddlestone realises the focus must now shift to picking up points in the Premier League.We need to be picking up a lot more points in the league, said Huddlestone. Weve been a bit hit and miss recently, so we need to find a consistency and start putting our chances away.We also need to get back to being solid in defence like we were at the start of the season. Hopefully what weve done in the cup will be a boost to us in the league, which is where we need to knuckle down. Its over a month until the first leg of the semi-final, so its about playing well in the league now.Middlesbrough have had a few positive results against big teams recently. We saw their quality in the Championship last season and theyve only added to that since. But well go there and try and stamp our authority on the game.The sides split both meetings in the Championship last season with Boro collecting a 1-0 victory courtesy of a late strike from David Nugent in March. Hull claimed a 3-0 result at the KCOM Stadium in November 2015. Anthony Beauvillier Islanders Jersey . -- Jimmy Walkers first PGA Tour trophy came with a special gift tucked inside. Denis Potvin Jersey . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. http://www.hockeyislandersstore.us/Mathew-Barzal-Jersey/ . Darren Helm scored on Detroits sixth attempt in the shootout and then Jonas Gustavsson stopped Andrew Shaws shot, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 5-4 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night. This time last year, two golfers -- Lydia Ko and Inbee Park -- commanded most of the attention going into the CME Group Tour Championship with LPGA season honors on the line.For the last event of 2016, which starts Thursday at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Florida, Ko, No. 1 in the Rolex Rankings, again is a main part of the plot. But Park, bothered much of the season by a thumb injury, isnt in this weeks field. The gold medalist in womens golf at the Summer Olympics and a seven-time major champion, Park is taking an extended break in hopes of getting healthy again.Ko has another very formidable foil at this years CME Group Tour Championship in the form of Ariya Jutanugarn. The 20-year-old from Thailand burst into prominence in the spring with three straight victories -- she was the first LPGA winner from that increasingly golf-loving country -- and has added two more since, including a major title at the Ricoh Womens British Open.Jutanugarn arrives on Floridas southwest coast with one more victory in 2016 than Ko, whose four wins are topped by a a major triumph at the ANA Inspiration. The 19-year-old from New Zealand took advantage of a late-Sunday swoon by Jutanugarn, who had a two-stroke lead before a crushing bogey-bogey-bogey finish that opened an avenue for Ko to win her second straight major.That was seven long months ago, and the uncertainty with which Jutanugarn played those closing holes at Mission Hills Country Club has been replaced with a relaxed confidence.As the LPGA concludes its global schedule in the United States after six tournaments in Asia and last weeks Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Mexico, Jutanugarn, not Ko, has the mojo of the moment.Although Jutanugarn hasnt won since the Canadian Pacific Womens Open in late August, she has played well of late, racking up five top-10s in seven events since her fifth victory. Ko, on the other hand, hasnt won since July and has experienced an indifferent fall with only one top-10 in her last six starts, with three finishes outside the top 40. Her game has been uneven, and she fired caddie Jason Hamilton, with whom she had a lot of success the last couple of years. Ko is still No. 1 in the world, but Jutanugarn is an ascendant No. 2 after a major attitude adjustment.This year, I have so much fun, more than last year, Jutanugarn said during the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia in late October. This year, my only focus is I really want to be happy on the course. Thats the change for me from last year.Its hard to fathom that a year ago Jutanugarn missed the cut in 10 consecutive events. Jean-Francois Berube Islanders Jersey. . But she began to play better late in the 2015 season and in 2016, following her collapse at the ANA Inspiration, began working with performance coaches Lynn Marriott and Pia Nilsson of Vision54. With an improved mindset, Jutanugarn was poised to capitalize on her talent, evident since she won the 2011 U.S. Girls Junior at age 15.Powerful (she is ranked 18th in 2016 in driving distance despite rarely ever using a driver) with good touch (she is No. 3 in putts per green in regulation), Jutanugarn has the lead over Ko in a couple of season races. Jutanugarn tops the money list with $2,475,218, less than $20,000 ahead of the South Korea-born New Zealander. She has a 14-point advantage over Ko for Rolex Player of the Year and leads the Race to the CME Globe with Ko in the second position. Ko (69.611) has a narrow lead over Jutanugarn (69.632) in scoring average.The path to victory this week for either Jutanugarn or Ko could be blocked by Shanshan Feng of China, who won back-to-back events (Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia and Toto Japan Classic) within the last month. The bronze medalist at Rio, behind Park and Ko, Feng has climbed to No. 4 in the world, trailing Ko, Jutanugarn and South Korean In Gee Chun, the winner of the seasons final major, The Evian Championship.One honor that isnt in the balance at Tiburon: Louise Suggs Rolex Rookie of the Year. Chun, who wasnt an LPGA member in 2015 when she won the U.S. Womens Open, already has captured that award easily over Mexicos Gaby Lopez, American Megan Khang and Su Oh of Australia.Besides Park, notably absent from the season-ender, for which 72 players qualify, is Michelle Wie. The 2014 U.S. Womens Open champion, Wie finished 115th in the Race to the CME Globe and has tumbled to 160th in the Rolex Rankings after missing 12 cuts in her first 20 events of 2016. She played better in Asia -- picking up a top-10 at the Blue Bay LPGA -- but the upswing couldnt make up for her poor play earlier in the year.At the end of a disappointing season, Wie, 27, can look at Jutanugarn as an example of how things can turn around drastically. When youve been mired in a slump and hobbled with injuries, you look for any available inspiration. The womens game is now in the hands of young stars who will have the stage, trying to end a season in style. 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 ' ' '

UFC expert Adam Matues provides his preview for UFC 205 as Conor McGregor taking on Eddie Alvarez. Victor Cuesta Jersey . Ill wrap one on one shoulder, and Ill wrap another on the other shoulder.Those were the words of Conor McGregor as he prepares for his latest attempt at history. In the early hours of Sunday morning, the Irishman will face off against lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez and should he win, he will become the first fighter in the UFC to ever simultaneously hold two title belts.  Despite being the 145lb world champion, McGregors last two fights have been at 170lbs, but the former Cage Warriors lightweight champion could have found his perfect division at 155lbs and perhaps the conditioning issues surrounding him are due to fighting at the extremities of his weight.The weight cut to get to 145lbs is too severe and the effects of such a gruelling preparation was seen in his fight with Chad Mendes, while he struggled with the high tempo in his fights against Diaz. UFC president Dana White seperates Eddie Alvarez and Conor McGregor during the UFC 205 press conference Alvarezs intensity for five hard rounds is proven and you would expect that he will look to utilise his weight advantage and wrestling skills to neutralise McGregor on the mat, making over 2.5 rounds appeal at 11/10 with Sky Bet.Mendes was able to take McGregor to the ground on multiple occasions and, although, the Irishman did show off much improved takedown defence in his last fight, an argument could be made for Alvarez to win by submission. Is McGregors charm back? The swagger is back and Eddie Alvarez could be about to find that out GROUND GAINSHowever, the Irishman has brought in Dillon Danis, a high-level Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt to be his sparring partner and, from the training footage that has been released, McGregor looks confident and slick on the ground.Alvarez may find he has underestimated McGregors ground game and after the first two rounds, switch his game plan and instead look to engage in a striking match, which will be a big mistake.Not only does Alvarez find himself at a five-inch reach disadvantage, his opponent is one of the most dangerous strikers in MMA, who combines deadly precision with devastating power. Striking coach Owen Roddy put it perfectly when he said Conor has 25 minutes to land just one big punch.WALKING TARGET McGregor is determined to give UFC fans another spectacle Despite his great footwork, Alvarezs run forward high pressure style makes him easy to hit. McGregor was able to knockdown the much heavier Diaz but both he and Alvarez are tough, resilient brawlers that are hard to finish.Its a monumental task for McGregor to step up a weight division and KO the lightweight champion of the world for only the second time in his career.McGregor is a natural lightweight with a welterweight reach and you can anticipate that when the fight is standing, he will be slipping Alvarezs big right hand whilst countering with his brutal step back left hand, picking off Alvarezs advances every time he looks to set up a takedown.Im also expecting him to impress the judges with a couple of knockdowns but fail to get the knockout. On top of this, four of Alvarezs last five fights have gone the distance and therefore my main bet is going to be McGregor to win by decision at 15/2 with Sky Bet. McGregor gained revenge over Nate Diaz earlier this year BEST OF THE RESTUFC 205 is the best fight card ever assembled and below are my best bets from the fights outside of the main event.Nurmagomedov v JohnsonWith a perfect 23-0 record in professional MMA, Khabib Nurmagomedov is the sports hottest rising star right now. The Russian is unlucky not to be fighting Alvarez for the lightweight title himself and should have no problems extending his unbeaten record against Michael Johnson, who has lost two of his last three fights. However, Johnson has never lost via TKO/KO and therefore Nurmagomedov to win by submission at 4/1 looks a good bet.Jedrzejczyk vs  Kowalkiewicz UFCs new Rousey Our exclusive interview with Joanna Jedrzejczyk Its the battle of the unbeaten Polish females for the first title fight of the night as straw weight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk defends her belt against Karolina Kowalkiewicz. The champion is arguably the best female fighter on the planet right now, although Cris Cyborg and Ronda Rousey may have something to say about that, but its not going to be an easy night for her in what could potentially be the fight of the night. The build-up started explosively with Jedrzejczyk seemingly head-butting her opponent at the weigh in. With seven of her 12 MMA wins coming via decision, you can expect the former kick-boxer to use aggressive and precise striking to successfully defend her belt via points. My bet is therefore Jedrzejczyk to win by decision at 10/11.Weidman v RomeroThis is closer fight than the odds would suggest, with both fighters having just one loss on their MMA records. Chris Weidman is the 4/7 favourite, which is too short for someone who hasnt fought for 11 months, having suffered injury setbacks since losing his title. It looks an even worse price when we consider that his opponent Yoel Romero has won seven straight fights with the last six going to a third round.
