PITTSBURGH -- The Milwaukee Brewers wont be going to the postseason and they spent the weekend trying to keep the Pittsburgh Pirates from getting there. Authentic Daniel Norris Jersey .Domingo Santana had his first career two-home run game, Jonathan Villar hit his first grand slam and Chris Carter connected for his 32nd homer as the Brewers rolled to a 10-0 victory over the sputtering Pirates on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.The Pirates have lost six in a row since sweeping a four-game series at Milwaukee last weekend, falling 3 1/2 games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the second National League wild card. The Pirates host the Cardinals in a three-game series beginning Monday.This ones done, Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said. Learn from it. The schedules been fortunate for us. We get to chase the team that were chasing. We all need to hit the reset and refresh button and go on. Lamenting about the past doesnt do anybody any good.The Brewers are in fourth place in the NL Central with a 60-76 record.Santana, who has six home runs while being limited to 54 games this season because of a shoulder injury, hit a solo shot off starter Steven Brault (0-2) to open the scoring. The third-year outfielder hit the second of back-to-back homers with Carter, who had a three-run drive, off rookie left-handed reliever Kelvin Marte during a five-run ninth.It just feels good to hit one, so I feel really feel fortunate to hit two in one game, Santana said. Ive been through a lot this year. Im trying to stay positive and go out, help the team as much as I can and make a good impression.Villar connected as a pinch-hitter with two outs in the sixth inning off Juan Nicasio to break open a 1-0 game. Normally the Brewers third baseman, Villar did not start for a second straight day because of a sore left knee that was the result of the Pirates Josh Harrison sliding into him Friday night.It was the 12th home run of the season for Villar, adding to the four-year veterans career high, as he helped the Brewers win their fourth straight game.I hit the ball and starting running to first base becuase I didnt think I hit it hard enough for it to go out, Villar said. I was surprised but it was a good surprise.Chase Anderson (8-11) scattered five hits over five innings while striking out two and walking none as he combined with three relievers on a six-hitter. Anderson has not recorded an out in the seventh inning in 14 starts since June 8 but has not allowed more than three runs in 11 starts since June 28.The Brewers allowed four runs in the series.Its huge, Anderson said of the sweep. Were such a young team and its important that we can bounce back from losing (six) in a row. We just want to keep growing together and come back next year and have a better season.Santana had three of the Brewers 13 hits. Carter finished with two hits and three RBI and Keon Broxton doubled twice.Making his fourth career start, Brault also pitched five innings and gave up one run on four hits with five strikeouts and three walks. Both of his losses have come against the Brewers.Harrison had two hits.TRAINERS ROOMBrewers: With Villar limited to pinch-hitting, INF Yadiel Rivera was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs to provide depth.Pirates: RHP Gerrit Cole (elbow inflammation) is on schedule to be activated from the disabled list Sept. 12 and start at Philadelphia. He has been out since Aug. 25. ... 3B Jung Ho Kang (sore left shoulder) is expected to activated from the DL on Monday after being sidelined since Aug. 20. ... RHP Neftali Feliz said he felt better after leaving Saturday nights game with arm discomfort but there is no timetable for when he may pitch again.COUNSELL EJECTEDBrewers manager Craig Counsell was ejected in the second inning by second base umpire and crew chief Brian Gorman following a long argument over an obstruction callWith the Brewers ahead 1-0, Orlando Arcia appeared to score from first base after third baseman Adam Frazier threw wildly to first base on Hernan Perezs two-out grounder. The throw pulled first baseman John Jaso off the bag and he collided with Perez.The umpires, after huddling twice, ruled obstruction on Jaso and sent Arcia back to third base, where he was left stranded when Carter lined out.UP NEXTBrewers: Rookie RHP Zach Davies (10-6, 4.07 ERA) faces Cubs RHP Kyle Hendricks (13-7, 2.09) on Monday in the opener of a three-game home series.Pirates: Rookie RHP Chad Kuhl (3-2, 3.70) opposes St. Louis RHP Adam Wainwright (9-8, 4.53) in the series opener. Tigers Jerseys From China . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. Authentic Lance Parrish Jersey .C. -- Manny Malhotra had two goals and an assist, leading the Carolina Hurricanes to a 6-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. http://www.cheaptigersjerseys.us/authent...mermann-jersey/ . The catch: It needs a lot of money, and it needs it fast.The Winnipeg Goldeyes found out that even a six-run lead is not safe when playing the Gary SouthShore RailCats. Danny Pulfer helped Gary battled back from a 7-1 deficit to defeat the Winnipeg Goldeyes 9-8 on Tuesday night. The loss drops the Goldeyes below .500 for the first time all season. Pulfer homered in the eighth to pull Gary within one and then he drove in the winner in the ninth inning. The win completes a four-game series sweep for the RailCats over the Goldeyes. In his second game back with the Goldeyes, Tyler Graham used his speed to help generate the games opening run. He led off with a hustle double, stole third base, and then scored on a Mike Coles infield single. That would be the start of a big inning for the Goldeyes, who would make it 2-0 on a Josh Mazzola sacrifice fly. Ryan Scoma followed and battled a full count before blasting a Will Krout offering over the wall in center. The two-run home run was Scomas first of the season and Winnipeg took a four run lead into the second. With the score now 4-1 in the fifth, the RailCats committed a pair of fielding errors on the first two batters of the inning and Mazzola would make them pay instantly. He hit a towering shot over the leftfield wall and the three-run home run made it 7-1. A two run double off the bat of Brian Kolb cut the lead to 7-3 in the sixth and the potential Gary comeback got its first big push. In the same inning, with the Goldeyes holding an 8-4 lead in the sixth, Winnipeg had runners on second and third with less than two outs but could not find a way to cash them in. Tigers Jerseys Outlet. That would prove to be a big missed opportunity. A three-run game in the eighth, Goldeyes reliever Brendan Lafferty walked the first batter of the inning. Pulfer followed that with a home run over the wall in left to make it a one run game. Mike Massaro – on his fifth hit of the game - tied it with a base hit up the middle, scoring Chase Tucker who was hit by a pitch earlier. Closer Patrick Keating was brought in and got the final two outs of the inning, but all of a sudden it was a brand new ballgame. With one out in the ninth, Brian Kolb slashed a triple down the right field line, joining Massaro in Garys five hit party. The next batter, Pulfer, hit a sacrifice fly to deep center to give the RailCats their first lead of the night, one that would hold as the final. Taylor Sewitt worked a scoreless eighth to improve to 3-0 in relief. Marco Gonzalez came on in the ninth for his third save, stranding the potential tying run at first base. Patrick Keating took the loss to fall to 4-1. Hardy took the no decision after going 5 2/3 innings in his 11th start of the season. He struck out five while allowing four runs on eight hits. Following a travel day on Wednesday, the Goldeyes begin a ten game road trip through the CanAm League. The stretch begins on Thursday at 6 p.m. CT when Winnipeg visits the Quebec Capitales. All Goldeyes road action can be heard on TSN 1290 with play-by-play voice Paul Edmonds.

India 631 (Kohli 235, Vijay 136, Jayant 104) beat England 400 (Jennings 112, Buttler 76, Moeen 50, Ashwin 6-112, Jadeja 4-109) and 195 (Root 77, Ashwin 6-55) by an innings and 36 runs Scorecard and ball-by-ball detailsWith a victory over England by an innings and 36 runs, India have secured their fifth consecutive series and regained the Anthony De Mello trophy. Marlins Jerseys For Sale . R Ashwin picked up his second five-for of the match, and the 24th of his career, to make sure the formalities were complete by the first half hour on the fifth day. He took his first wicket when the visitors were 180 for 4. They were all out for 195. It was only the third time in Test history that a team had made 400 in the first innings and then lost by an innings.The end was very quick and very messy. Jonny Bairstow was sent packing in the second over and Chris Woakes in the fourth. Their dismissals provided a simple little summary of the difference in skill between the sides in subcontinent conditions.Ashwin flicked a carrom ball on middle and leg with the intention of making Bairstow play across the line and the batsman obliged. Bairstow failed to pick the variation, was squared up when the ball turned the wrong way, and sharply, and was plumb lbw. Woakes, in the next Ashwin over, went for a loose cover drive, but the ball dipped on him and stormed through the gate to hit the stumps. Reading the ball out of the hand is key to playing on turning tracks, as is avoiding strokes that have a high degree of risk, like hitting against the break.Adil Rashid gave an example of the other thing batsmen werent supposed to do in all of Test cricket. Throw his wicket away. He lobbed a catch to midwicket off Ashwins third over James Anderson came out and was promptly pulled into some polite conversation by the close-in fielders after his criticism of their captain. He too popped a catch to midwicket to give Ashwin his sixth wicket of the Test and the best match figures by a spinner at Wankhede stadium - 12 for 167. Andre Dawson Jersey . Sgt. Eric ONeal says most of the arrests at Monday nights game were for public drunkenness, though one person was taken into custody on suspicion of trying to steal a seat from the stadium. Marlins Jerseys From China . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead. http://www.marlinsjerseyscheap.com/?tag=martin-prado-jersey .Y. - New York City has been selected to host the NBA All-Star weekend in 2015, with the game played at Madison Square Garden and the slam dunk contest and other skills events held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. There wont be Olympic gold or any other trophies in Roger Federers near future.On Tuesday, the all-time Grand Slam leader announced on Facebook that he needs extensive rehabilitation on his knee and will miss the rest of the season.The doctors advised that if I want to play on the ATP World Tour injury free for another few years, as I intend to do, I must give both my knee and body the proper time to fully recover, Federer wrote.One of the most durable players on tour for most of his career, Federer has played sparingly this season following meniscus surgery to repair a torn tendon in early February. Federer, 34, then withdrew from the French Open with a back injury, the first major he missed since the 1999 US Open.The Swiss has played only 28 matches this season and has not won a title. He did reach the Wimbledon semifinals earlier this month but was ousted by Milos Raonic in five sets.It is tough to miss the rest of the year, Federer wrote. However, the silver lining is that this experience has made me realize how lucky I have been throughout my career with very few injuries. Discount Marlins Jerseys Online. Federers 17 Grand Slam titles are three more than anyone else in history, although he has not triumphed since winning Wimbledon in 2012. Still, the third-ranked player has played remarkable tennis in recent years, particularly last season when he reached the Wimbledon and US Open finals.Federer was scheduled to play singles and doubles in Rio. At the 2008 Beijing Games, he won gold with partner Stan Wawrinka, and four years later, he reached the gold medal match before falling to Andy Murray.The love I have for tennis, the competition, tournaments and of course you, the fans remains intact. I am as motivated as ever and plan to put all my energy towards coming back strong, healthy and in shape to play attacking tennis in 2017.

(Sports Network) - The well-rested Chicago Blackhawks will get back to work tonight, as they host the rival Detroit Red Wings in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals at the United Center. Cheap Football Italy Jerseys . Join us tonight and get updates from TSNs hockey personalities with TSN.cas Game Night blog on the TSN GameTracker beginning at 8pm et/5pm pt. The top-seeded Blackhawks ousted Minnesota in five games during the opening round and havent played since beating the Wild by a 5-1 score last Thursday. Although the series ended with a lopsided win, the Presidents Trophy winners had to work hard earlier in the first round. The Blackhawks needed overtime to win the opener against eighth-seeded Minnesota and even lost Game 3 in OT before eventually closing out the series in five. After a 3-0 win in Game 4 and the 5-1 decision in the series clincher, the Blackhawks wound up outscoring the Wild by a 17-7 margin in the series. Chicago wore down the Wild in Round 1 thanks to its superior depth at both ends on the ice. The deep roster includes plenty of familiar faces from the Blackhawks Stanley Cup championship team of 2010. Forwards Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Marian Hossa, Patrick Sharp and Dave Bolland and defensemen Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook and Niklas Hjalmarsson all helped Chicago lift the Cup three years ago and head coach Joel Quenneville can lean heavily on that postseason experience this spring. Sharp and Hossa paced Chicago with six points apiece in the opening round. Sharp, who had 11 goals during the Blackhawks title run in 2010, notched five goals and one assist against Minnesota, while Hossa had three goals and three helpers. Every Chicago forward who played in all five games during the first round registered at least a point and nine of those players had at least two points. The Blackhawks also will get centerman Dave Bolland back for the start of Round 2. Bolland missed the entire first series with a lower-body injury, but is ready to go for Game 1 against Detroit. Chicago said on Wednesday that Viktor Stalberg will not play in Game 1. Coach Joel Quenneville says its a "coachs decision" and Stalberg could get back on the ice at any point in the series. He says he has talked to Stalberg about the decision to bench him for Wednesday nights series opener. Stalberg, one of the fastest skaters on the team, has been working outside of the top four lines in practice, so the move was not a complete surprise. But Stalberg had nine goals and 14 assists in 47 games this season, then had a big assist and a plus-2 rating while playing all five games in the first round against Minnesota. Chicago goaltender Corey Crawford had a terrific start to this years playoffs, posting 1.32 goals against average and .950 save percentage over five games. The 28-year-old is now 9-9 with a 2.11 GAA in 19 career playoff games. Crawford started 28 games for Chicago in the regular season, while 19 starts went to Ray Emery, who was unavailable in the first round due to a lower-body injury. However, Emery, who posted an amazing 17-1-0 record this season, is ready to back up Crawford at the start of this series. Emery is 20-15 with a 2.57 GAA and .903 save percentage in 36 career playoff games. The Red Wings fought hard to make the playoffs for the 22nd straight season in 2013 and the seventh-seeded club proved it still belongs there with an upset of Anaheim in Round 1. Although Detroits seventh-place finish in the West is the clubs worst seeding since it last missed the postseason in 1989-90, the Red Wings knocked off the second-seeded Ducks in seven games during this years conference quarterfinals. The Red Wings now find themselves in the conference semifinals for the sixth time in seven seasons after getting bounced out by Nashville in the opening round last spring. Detroit used a balanced scoring attack and timely stops from goaltender Jimmy Howard to outlast the Ducks in seven games. The Red Wings had six forwards post two or more goals in the battle against Anaheim. Henrik Zetterberg and Johan Franzen led the way with three goals each, while Pavel Datsyuk, Daniel Cleary, Damien Brunner and Justin Abdelkader notch two goals apiece. Zetterberg led the Red Wings with eight total points in the opening round and Datsyuk finished with seventh. This is Zetterbergs first postseason run as captain after he inherited the "C" following Nicklas Lidstroms retirement last summer. The loss of Lidstrom still looms large on the blue line for Detroit, but the club did finish fifth in team defense this season with just 2.29 goals per game. Howard had a busy series in net for Detroit in the conference quarters, as he faced an average of 32 shots per game against the Ducks. In the end, Howard posted a 2.74 GAA and .911 save percentage over the seven games and he proved his worth in close games, recording a 3-1 record in the four tests that went to overtime. The 29-year-old Howard is 17-18 all-time in the playoffs with a 2.65 GAA and .914 save percentage. Chicago won all four meetings in this years season series and has claimed seven straight against the Red Wings overall. Three of the four encounters between the clubs ended after regulation, while the other contest was a 7-1 rout in Detroit on March 31. That blowout loss represented a season-high in goals allowed for the Red Wings, who have dropped nine of their last 10 games against Chicago. "Its going to be fun to play them again," Zetterberg said. "They had our number in the regular season, so its going to be a challenge for us. Weve played better the last 10 games." Chicago, which also gets to host Game 2 on Saturday, was 18-3-3 at the United Center this season before going 3-0 in home games in the opening round. Detroit was 11-9-4 as the guest in the regular season and split four games in Anaheim in the conference quarters. The Central Division and Original Six foes also have met 15 times in the playoffs and Chicago has taken eight of those series. However, Detroit has taken the last two postseason encounters, including a five-game series win when the franchises last met in the playoffs in the 2009 Western Conference finals. Replica Italy Jerseys . LOUIS -- The New Orleans Saints looked like a team playing out the string. Italy World Cup Jerseys . Now, correct me if Im wrong but I saw one official distinctly pointing at the net indicating a good goal but after an inconclusive review they overturned the goal. Shouldnt the ruling on the ice (good goal) stand after an inconclusive review? Why was this overturned? James Veaudry Pembroke, ON -- Hey Kerry, Youll get a lot of these, but why was the Montreal goal against Nashville Saturday night overturned? Eller puts the puck on net and the on ice ruling from the ref behind the net is a Montreal goal. http://www.cheapitalyjerseysauthentic.com/ . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Rangers impressive stretch of scoreless innings by the pitching staff ended with an emphatic thud Sunday.More importantly, manager Jeff Banisters ballclub missed a chance to hang onto its lead in the race for home-field advantage in the playoffs.Not that theres much concern in Texas clubhouse.With their final six games at Globe Life Park -- where they own the second-best home record in the AL -- the Rangers are still confident heading into the final stretch of the regular season.Its crucial, Banister said after Oakland rookie Jharel Cotton pitched seven crisp innings to beat Rangers 7-1. We need to go home and play clean baseball. We were able to get some guys rest, get some guys off their legs today, so they should be fresh going into tomorrow.The Rangers, who clinched the AL West on Friday, fell into a tie with the Boston Red Sox for home-field advantage in the playoffs. Texas (92-64) holds a slight tiebreaking advantage based on division record and will close out the regular season with a pair of three-game series against Milwaukee and Tampa Bay.Things might not have been so tight had the Rangers been able to do anything against Cotton.Adrian Beltre drove in the only run for Texas with his team-leading 32nd home run in the seventh. It was the 445th career home run for Beltre. The 37-year-old also singled to move past home run king Barry Bonds on the career hits list with 2,937.Beyond that, the Rangers had just two singles and a double.Thats the first time weve seen (Cotton), Banister said. Hes got a special changeup . something we had not seen. When hes got that working for him it does present a challenge when its the first time these guys have seen him.Ryon Healy had three hits, including a two-run homer, and Stephen Vogt drove in three runs to help the As win after being shut out in back-to-back games.Oakland will be sitting out the postseason and had lost the first five games on this homestand, but ended it on an encouraging note behind Cotton (2-0). The rookie right-hander allowed one run, struck out five and faced two over the minimum while quieting the Rangers potent offennse. Youth Italy Jerseys. Cotton became the first As pitcher since at least 1913 to start his career with four consecutive starts of five innings or longer while allowing one earned run or less.I feel like it was a Sunday game and they wanted to get away, Cotton said of the Rangers hitters. I was on the mound like, `Thank you. Just keep swinging. That was good for me.Sean Doolittle and Ryan Dull pitched one inning apiece to complete the five-hitter.The As did all of their scoring in the second to chase starter Colby Lewis (6-4).Bruce Maxwell blooped an RBI single just past the outstretched glove of shortstop Hanser Alberto. Marcus Semien scored on a groundout and Vogt lined a three-run double to right before Healys 12th home run, a towering shot that put Oakland up 7-0.That ended a streak of 23 consecutive scoreless innings by Texas pitchers.LEWIS BEATEN BUT ENCOURAGEDLewis, who had won four consecutive games at the Coliseum, lasted just 1 1/3 innings and allowed a season-high seven runs and seven hits. The right-hander has lost four consecutive decisions, three since a two-month stint on the disabled list.I felt great, the best Ive felt in a long time, Lewis said. Thats the way it goes. I feel like I made a lot of good pitches. They just were able to drop balls in where our defenders werent. Thats about it.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: Sonny Gray will come off the disabled list to make his first start in nearly two months against the Angels on Wednesday. Gray has not pitched in a game since Aug. 6 because of a forearm strain.UP NEXTRangers: LHP Martin Perez (10-10) faces the Brewers on Monday when Texas begins its final homestand of the regular season. Perez owns a 2.65 ERA at home, tied for the lowest in the AL among qualifying pitchers.Athletics: Sean Manaea (6-9) starts against the Angels in Anaheim on Monday. The left-handed rookie has not allowed a run in 11 consecutive innings since missing more than two weeks with a sore back.---This story corrects the spelling to Banister throughout.

EVIAN, France -- Seven years ago Joanna Klatten wasnt playing in professional golf tournaments -- she was working at them. Nicholas Castellanos Jersey .A lot can happen in seven years.In that time the Evian Masters has become the Evian Championship, the fifth major of the LPGA season, and Klatten has become the longest hitter in the womens game.Having completed a first round tied for 53rd at a 1-over 72 in the 2016 Evian Championship Thursday, Klatten can reflect that her work environment has improved (just a bit) in the past few years: Where once she fidgeted behind a desk, this week shes standing on tee boxes, casting an eye over Lake Geneva and the snow-capped mountains of the Alps beyond.But Klatten is no stranger to golf courses with a quintessentially French view.She grew up playing the game at Saint-Cloud Golf Club in Paris, where the eighth and ninth holes present a funnel of trees with a view of the Eiffel Tower in the far distance.Klatten is perfectly at home in Paris. She loves the culture -- attending concerts, the opera and the ballet when possible. After graduating from Georgia State University in Atlanta, where she was a 2007 first-team All-CAA selection, she returned to the City of Light.I never had the goal to turn professional, she told espnW before her first round. I was going to follow everyone else in my family, to work in marketing and events. I even worked for a radio company for a bit.Klatten may love the attractions of the city, but it started to dawn on her that being stuck in an office wasnt her style.I need to be doing something all the time, I cant keep still, she laughed. I like being outside and activities like skiing and sky-diving. When I was working I didnt hit any golf balls for a year and a half.As the clubs gathered dust in the garage, she kept an eye on her peers from the European amateur scene.Some of my friends had started playing on tour, they were enjoying it and I started to wonder. Maybe I was missing out on something, it didnt feel right.She had an itch, and it was an unlikely voice who told her to scratch it -- Sergio Garcia.I was working at the European Tours BMW International Open in Munich and at a meal there I was chatting to Sergio and a few other players. I told them I had the course record at Saint-Cloud of 63. They were saying that if I could go that low, I had potential and I should see how far it could take me.There was another consideration.I was working for the tournament director and he also said it was probably a good idea I tried golf, she said with a sheepish smile. Yeah, Im not very good at organizing.Working in an office wasnt for me, so I quit my job in 2010 and it was a long road.Her laugh at this remark suggests she had her doubts at times.Yeah, it might have taken me about six months to break 80, she said.In late 2010 she headed to the Ladies European Tours Q school and gained a card via a top-10 finish. The journey, however, was far from complete: Five tournaments into 2011, she had yet to play a weekend.The turning point came in midsummer: a first cut made in the Netherlands, an 18-hole lead in her very next start in Switzerland and then qualification for a first major championship, the Ricoh Womens British Open on the toughest track on the rotation, Carnoustie.She missed the cut, but an encounter with her there suggested she had taken another step forward. She had been taken by the atmosphere on the range, by the focus of the worlds best players, by their striving for success.Kicking on from that experience the following year, she claimed a first professional victory on the ALPG Tour before racking up 19 top-25 finishes on the Ladies European Tour as she finished 2012 at 25th in the rankings and 2013 at 13th.She was ready for the challenge of the LPGA.There is a huge difference level-wise, people are way more serious, she said. It pushes you. I like that.Although excited about the golf, there were aspects of the new lifestyle that took some getting used to.To begin with, it was the same hotel room every week; you know getting stuck with the same chains and its all so similar, I wasnt sure for a bit. But then I decided to do private housing, which is this great idea the LPGA has. Some players dont like staying with strangers, but I like being with the locals and Ive been so lucky.Ive stayed in such nice places with lovely people, getting to know all about the area and the culture. It makes it a little less like a job and a drudge. There is one family I always stay with in Michigan; they are almost like family. They make it so much easier for me. I love going back to them.A big league win remains elusive, but an LPGA career-best sixth place came in this years Lotte Championship in Hawaii. She also claimed an alternative victory in last seasons end-of-year KIA Performance Awards, when presented with the power drive prize for longest driver (average of 274-yards, longest hit 355-yards).Sounding a little emotional, she said at the prize: Six years ago, if youd said I would be here at this awards, it is too amazing. It is a good reward for so much effort. Its a dream come true for me playing here; way better than an office.Statistics also point the way forward.Oh yeah, she said with wide-eyed Gallic emphasis. This year, I am leading the driving distance again, and I am seventh for greens in regulation. Its just the putting. If I fix it, then there is potential. Im playing well this year, Im optimistic.A two-time top-five finisher in the Ladies Open de France (including a hole-in-one last year), she was ready to bring her A-game to Evian.I love the set up of the course; it suits me very well. I used to have a miss from the tee on the left, which is bad at Evian, but I dont have that miss now. Then once youre on the fairway at Evian, there is a lot of elevation and carry required with the approach, and that suits my ball flight as I have a lot of height and length. Theres plenty of reason to be confident, I just need to get it in the hole.No one likes an early alarm call, but Klatten didnt mind Thursday.First out from the 10th tee at 7:45 a.m. local time; there was no commute, and her office had no desk -- and she likes it that way. Denny McLain Jersey .com) - The Montreal Canadiens will try to halt their longest losing streak of the season when they host the struggling New York Islanders in tonights clash at the Bell Centre. Al Kaline Jersey . -- Ryan Getzlaf grabbed the three pucks wrapped in tape and held them up to his chest in the Anaheim Ducks dressing room for a celebration nine seasons in the making. http://www.wholesaletigersjerseys.com/jose-iglesias-jersey/ . It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night.

Alex Hales deserves his fine for dissent, according to Englands assistant coach, Paul Farbrace. Wholesale Tigers Jerseys . Hales was fined 15% of his match fee for showing dissent to the TV umpire during the first day of the fourth Investec Test at The Oval.Having struggled to hide his frustration after he was adjudged to have been caught at midwicket by Yasir Shah off the bowling of Mohammad Amir - Hales believed the ball had bounced before Yasir claimed it - he then visited Joel Wilson in the third umpires room and questioned the decision. Hales was then said to have made inappropriate comments as he was leaving the room according to an ICC statement.As a result, Hales was found to have breached Article 2.1.5 of the ICC code of conduct, which relates to showing dissent at an umpires decision during an international match. Hales admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by the match referee, Richie Richardson. There was no need for a formal hearing.While the England team management have no intention of taking further action against Hales, they have made it clear that his behaviour was inappropriate, unacceptable and unwise.He deserves his fine, Farbrace said. You cant go into the match referees office during a game and have heated exchange as Alex did. He deserves to be fined. We cant support any player going in and having a crack at third umpire. However frustrated he might be, it is the wrong thing to do. The ICC have done the right thing today.Going into the match referees office was the wrong thing to do. We would not have advised him to go and share his thoughts. It was not the brightest thing to do and it wasnt going to make any difference. And mid-game, its not the best thing to upset umpires.Hales has endured a poor series. He is averaging just 19.00 after seven innings with a top-score of 54. Broadcast footage of his dismissal at The Oval was unclear and did not clarify whether the catch had been taken cleanly.Hales mood will not have been improved after he dropped a relatively straightforward chance offered by Yasir to gully on the second morning of the Test. Later in the session he was seen to mock Azhar Ali - Hales feigned crying - after it appeared the batsman had complained to the on-field umpires over comments made to him by the England fielders.Farbrace was not concerned by Hales on field actions - there are always exchanges on the field- but felt a line had been crossed when he went to remonstrate with the TV umpire.Its hard to support that player in that situation, Farbrace said. The last thing you need to do is go in and kick the door off its hinges and tell the third umpire hes made a mistake. Its not going to make any difference, other than to your bank balance.

Australias tall timber shooters Caitlin Bassett and Gretel Tippett posed New Zealand plenty of problems as the Diamonds thumped the Silver Ferns 68-56 in the first Constellation Cup netball Test in Sydney.The Diamonds equalled their highest ever score against the Silver Ferns on Sunday and never trailed again after conceding the first goal of the match.They scored the next nine and the visitors never got closer than two in the first half and the gap didnt dip below nine in the second.Player of the match, the 193cm Bassett, followed up her international career best effort of 53 goals in Australias last game against the Silver Ferns by nailing all 47 of her attempts before being replaced at three-quarter time.Tippett, at 192cm , was starting a Test alongside Bassett for the first time and shot three from four in the first half.But she racked up seven assists and troubled the Ferns with her athleticism and unorthordox play.We really wanted to expose the C Bass-Gretel combination today and it was probably a dream start for that, Diamonds coac h Lisa Alexander said.Australias four shooters missed just four of their combined 72 shots.Their deadeye accuracy was complemented by tencious defence which forced 24 turnovers and accurate feeding, especially from wing attack Madi Robinson.

SAN JOSE, Calif. Miguel Sano Jersey . -- Midway through the first half of Sundays national championship game at Avaya Stadium, USCs Kayla Mills took a West Virginia shot flush in the face from no more than a few yards away. It felt, well, unpleasant. A ball to the nose will feel that way.I wanted to cry, Mills said after the game. I wanted to stop, but I was like Oh my gosh, the ball is still in our half. I cannot let them score, because I did not get hit in the face for nothing. And so, I was just trying to get myself sorted out. I didnt want to take that for nothing.It hurt, and I wanted to cry a little bit. But nothing came out, so were good.It just didnt hurt as much as missing the NCAA tournament, which she experienced in a freshman season that went very wrong.Three years later, a senior, Mills was on the field when the final whistle brought the college season to an end. And after No. 2 USCs 3-1 win over No. 1 West Virginia, she stayed there to celebrate a national championship with her teammates. So, no, it wasnt for nothing.Put aside for a moment the pair of goals from USCs Katie Johnson that first put her team ahead and later allowed them to breathe easy for the final few minutes. Put aside goalkeeper Sammy Jo Prudhommes championship-preserving saves. Leave all of that for later.USC won the title while outscoring its six opponents by a total of seven goals. That is the smallest goal differential of any champion since the bracket expanded to 64 teams in 2001. USC survived a shootout in the second round, the earliest an eventual champion ever partook in that lottery during the same time span. It won three consecutive 1-0 games to reach Sundays final. It was outshot in each of its final three games, including 21-8 by the Mountaineers on Sunday.The Trojans didnt dominate the tournament. That isnt the objective. It is to be there at the end. The Trojans had a plan for that.To understand what transpired, as USC broke down one of the stingiest defenses in recent College Cup memory to become just the fourth program to win multiple titles, start with a ball to the face. A group of players -- for whom the start of their college experience was like a ball to the face -- did over four seasons just what Mills did on this night. They played on.Six seniors played major minutes. Four transfers played major minutes.They accounted for all three goals and two of the assists. Oh yes, and eight saves.Those were courtesy of Prudhomme, who played against USC in her first two college seasons at Oregon State. Back in the bad old days. After winning a title in 2007, USC fell off the map. The nadir was a losing record and missed tournament in 2013.It just didnt seem to be working out, like they were just a little underachieving, and we didnt understand why, Prudhomme said of her view from the other goal. But I knew how good those players were.Keidane McAlpine arrived prior to the 2014 season and talked of a plan to contend for a title. Mills said it seemed the coaches saw things in the players that even the players didnt see at that point, which made it a difficult sell.Theres no way, from where we are right now, Mandy Freeman recalled thinking, that we could get a natty champ by my senior year.But that is exactly what they did.USC did what no one else in the NCAA tournament could when it took the lead against West Virginia. No worse than tied in its five previous games, the Mountaineers trailed after just 82 seconds in the final. The set-piece goal, Savannah Levin heading a corner kick deep into the box to set up Morgan Andrews for a headed finish, wasnt the fastest in the history of the final, but it was a lightning bolt. Undaunted, West Virginia piled up possession and shots until Ashley Lawrence tied the game with a 66th-minute strike. Still, the Mountaineers pressed on.But USC was outshot 41-25 in its final three games. Defending wasnt uncomfortable territory. And when Andrews launched a quick counterattack with a long pass that Leah Pruitt, another transfer, turned into an assist on the first of Johnsons two goals, USC had the lead back at 2-1.Weve talked about our team defending, day one, McAlpine said. Im big on defending. But we always talk about we defend so we can attack. Weve been able to create chances. I said it the other day, weve always been able to create chances and been very opportunistic all year. Weve got a quality group of forwards. And today was no different. We had to stay unified in what we were doing, disciplined in what we were doing. ... I thought our individual defending, especially in the box with crosses coming in, was fantastic.And we knew we had a solid netminder. Shes good; shots from distance she can take care of. Not to mention the special saves, which I think she made a handful today as well.Yes, Prudhomme did. None of them better than with 10 minutes remaining and USC still leading by a single goal. In a game in which West Virginia showed off the skill worthy of a team with so many players experienced at the international level, nothing was more impressive than the first-touch pass that Lawrence slid through a gap and the incredible control of Heather Kaleiohi to spin away from a defender as she gathered in the ball and faced no one but Prudhomme. That level of execution at the college level leads to goals almost every time.But only almost. Sliding to her right as Kaleiohi spun that direction, Prudhomme reached back across her momentum and pawed away the shot headed toward the far post. Johnson capped the scoring with a deft long-range finish on another counter with barely three minutes left.Like Andrews, the Notre Dame transfer so instrumental in two of the three goals, Prudhomme was a late but invaluable addition to USCs rebuilding effort.Transferring within the Pac-12 meant that Prudhomme had to sit out a season, a penalty most transfers dont pay in sports other than football and basketball. But that was a small price to pay for what she found in Los Angeles.I came from a situation where it was very intense and very upsetting and you didnt feel comfortable playing, Prudhomme said. You didnt feel like you did anything right, and you felt kind of worthless. We came here, and they made me confident again. I was actually getting to the point where I wanted to quit, because thats how much I hated soccer. And it wasnt because I actually hated the game. ...I think this coaching staff did an amazing job bringing these players that came from a similar situation that I did and bringing them back to a place mentally where they believe theyre good players. Because they are good players.All of that would have been true no matter the outcome in the final. For a group of players and coaches so open about not only their soccer experiences, but their conversations about matters of cultural significance and the roles they hope to play in the wider world, Sundays result didnt really define them any more than the loss defined a brilliant West Virginia team.But they are also good players who earned the trophy they held aloft.And if youre going to get hit in the face, well, its nice to know it wasnt for nothing.

DES MOINES, Iowa -- The Iowa Supreme Court seems to agree with Kevin Costner that theres no better place to play baseball than on fields cut out of the corn. Replica Switzerland Jerseys .The court on Friday cleared the way for a 24-field baseball complex at the Field of Dreams movie site in Dyersville, upholding a lower courts decision that the City Council properly rezoned the property from agricultural to commercial.The ruling came on an appeal by some Dyersville residents who sought to block the development of the All-Star Ballpark Heaven youth baseball and softball complex, fearing the complex would cause disruptions to surrounding farm operations and traffic, among other things.The complex is to be centered on the site were Field of Dreams, starring Costner, was shot. The movie was released in 1989 and has been embraced by people from throughout the country, who connected with its story of a farmer who carved a baseball field out of his corn crop. Thousands of people make the drive down to the small town about 140 miles northeast of Des Moines to run the bases at the baseball diamond and walk out to the cornfields that border the outfield.An attorney for the residents, Susan Hess, had argued for the courts to overturn the rezoning, saying members of the City Council werent impartial and acted in a quasi-judicial manner rather than legislative in approving the rezoning.The Iowa Supreme Court relied on its rulings in previous cases to side with the City Council, saying the councils rezoning decision did not weigh the legal rights of one party versus the other.The council weighed all of the information, reports, and comments available to it in order to determine whether rezoning was in the best interest of the city as a whole, Justice Bruce Zager wrote.An attorney for the city, Doug Henry, said the Iowa Supreme Court ruling settles the matter and clears any hurdles to building the baseball complex.Hess did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.

"The car balance is decent, but I think we can still improve," Vettel said. SEATTLE -- By this point, the best way for Washington coach Chris Petersen to deal with the task of facing Alabama in the national semifinals is through self-deprecation.The more Washingtons coach watches film of the Crimson Tide, the more he realizes the gargantuan task awaiting the Huskies.You know, probably the best college team Ive seen. So what can you do but keep humor about it? Petersen said Tuesday as Washington officially accepted its invitation to the Peach Bowl and a date with top-ranked Alabama. I mean, these are some -- top to bottom, theres no weaknesses out there.Petersen and his staff are still in the beginning stages of putting together their game plan for the fourth-ranked Huskies matchup with Alabama on Dec. 31 in Atlanta. Washingtons coaches spent time last week recruiting, making up for time lost by the Huskies while playing in the Pac-12 championship game. And with final exams going on, the Huskies have limited their practices, only holding a few in Seattle prior to the team departing for Atlanta on Christmas Day.Without players around much, its allowed Petersen time to analyze Alabama. And everywhere he looks, he sees challenges.Theres no players, like, `Well, hes a freshman. If hes a freshman, hes a freshman All-American(and) a whatever-star recruit, Petersen said. Theyre good. Theyre coached well. And the thing that Im as impressed with (as) anything in that program is how they recruit. They get great talent and then he does a great job with the culture of their program, playing hard and all those things.While Peetersen has wanted his players to focus on their final exams, some have worked in a little film study of the Crimson Tide in between their studies. Cheap Football Switzerland Jerseys. In the case of standout safety Budda Baker, his study of Alabama started immediately after the Pac-12 championship game victory over Colorado.As in the next day, before the Huskies even knew they were in the College Football Playoff.For me I think of the best, Baker said late last week. We won that game and I just felt like we were going to be playing Alabama so I started watching film right away.The majority of observers and casual fans believe Alabama will have its way with the Huskies. Petersen tries to block out as much noise as possible but its not like 10 years ago when he led decided underdog Boise State to an upset of Oklahoma. Theres too much available via social media for Petersen to completely insulate his team from the outside expectation that the Huskies are a long shot.Were not trying to block it out, and I dont think thats realistic, just like youre saying, Petersen said. So we just talk to our kids all the time about where they need to focus. Theyre going to hear it. Theyre going to know what everybody says, for the most part. But what do we think about, what do we pay attention to, where do we focus? How do we treat all this attention coming their way? And theyve been great about it.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL Gear Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Stitched NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2019 ' ' '

HOUSTON -- Evan Gattis doesnt know why he hits better when he catches compared to when hes the designated hitter. Wholesale Warriors Jerseys China .Ive seen the stats and heard its kind of a big split, but I just want to pretend like Im catching when Im not, Gattis said.He was catching Saturday night, and his bat came alive.Gattis had two home runs and four RBI in his return to the lineup, Collin McHugh threw six strong innings and the Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Angels 7-2.Gattis sat Friday with a bruised right hand after being hit by a pitch Wednesday. He came back Saturday and launched a three-run homer into the Crawford Boxes in left field in the second inning and added a solo shot off the facade in left-center in the fourth to give Houston a 5-0 lead.Glad I got a good pitch to hit, Gattis said. The first one I took I thought I took it well. It was borderline ball/strike away. Just really let the ball travel a little bit today as best I could.It was his sixth career multihomer game and first since hitting a pair Aug. 26, 2015, against the Yankees.For his career, Gattis entered hitting .260 with a .512 slugging percentage as a catcher, compared to .230 with a .422 slugging percentage when hes the DH. Hes also hit 38 homers in 153 games as a catcher, compared to 31 homers in 187 games as DH.Im sure someone smarter than me can figure it out, Houston manager A.J. Hinch said. I dont know if its actually true in the numbers. It feels like it and in all seriousness I think its the result of keeping him occupied, keeping his mind occupied, keeping his mind in the game.Carlos Correa had a solo home run to right in the fifth.McHugh (7-6) allowed two runs on six hits with six strikeouts in six innings. He continued his string of solid outings, allowing two runs or fewer for the sixth time in his last seven starts.I probably could have made some better pitches in better situations, McHugh said. But I think for the stuff we had Gatty did a really good job of guiding me through a couple of spots where I just wasnt feeling it.Houston has won 10 straight against the Angels. It tacked on a run in the third when Jered Weaver (8-8) hit Preston Tucker with the bases loaded, scoring George Springer. Springer knocked an RBI single in the fourth.Ji-Man Choi had a solo home run to the upper deck in right field to lead off the fifth, and Andrelton Simmons hit an RBI single in the sixth for the Angels.Weaver was roughed up for six runs and seven hits in four innings. The right-hander has struggled against Houston this season, allowing 16 runs in 15 1/3 innings.I just think that obviously, I dont have the same (stuff) that I used to have is first and foremost, Weaver said. They have become a pretty patient team. Not as free swinging. They make you work for it. I had to work my (butt) off there in the second and third.TRAINERS ROOMAstros: C Jason Castro was out of the lineup Saturday after being hit on the back of his right hand on a foul tip in the ninth inning Friday. This morning he felt it was OK, Hinch said. He took a few swings and felt a little bit of soreness, so I decided to scratch him.ROSTER MOVESAngels: Los Angeles called up Carlos Perez from Triple-A Salt Lake. Perez started at catcher and went 0 for 3. The Angels optioned C Juan Graterol to Salt Lake.Astros: 3B Matt Duffy was claimed off waivers by Texas. Duffy was designated for assignment July 16. ... Houston announced the signing of 22-year-old Cuban SS Anibal Sierra.UP NEXTAngels: RHP Tim Lincecum (2-3) will make his seventh start of the season Sunday and is looking for his second straight win.Astros: RHP Mike Fiers (6-4) will make his 18th start of the season and look to bounce back from two straight starts of four innings or less, including Mondays outing in Oakland where he was tagged for six runs in 3 2/3 innings.

CLEMSON, S. Rick Porcello Jersey .C. -- After a hard-fought, last-second victory against a Power Five opponent, Clemson coach Brad Brownell wasnt sure how focused his players might be for winless Coppin State.The Tigers took about 10 minutes to ease his concerns.Jaron Blossomgame had 15 points and 11 rebounds and Clemson used an 20-5 early burst to pound the Eagles 85-43 on Sunday.Just a nice stress-free win, Brownell said. I thought our guys were pretty focused which was good.The Tigers (5-2) were coming off a 60-58 victory over Nebraska in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge last Wednesday night, a game that came down to the final shot and ended close to midnight. It all added up to more than a few worries for Brownell.We talked about it, Brownell said. We had a pretty good practice (Friday), although the coach had to direct it to get to where we wanted it.There were no such issues come tip off.After Terry Harris Jr.s three-point play drew Coppin State (0-10) within 12-7, the Tigers took off on their game-breaking run. Marcquise Reed had a three-point play while Gabe DeVoe and Avry Holmes each hit 3s. By the time Blossomgame hit a short turnaround jumper, Clemson led 32-12 and were seldom pushed the rest of the way.Blossomgame had 10 points in the opening half for the Tigers (5-2), who built a 30-point lead and cruised to their third straight win and sent Coppin State to its 11th consecutive loss dating back to last season.Holmes finished with 13 points off three 3-pointers. Vanderbilt transfer Shelton Mitchell, making his first start, had 12 points on 6-of-8 shooting for Clemson while Reed added 11 points. Sidy Djitte had a game-high 13 rebounds to along with six points for the Tigers.Harris Jr. was Coppin States only double-figure scorer with 14 points. The Eagles are two games shy of their all-time worst start at 0-12 in 2005-06.Clemson improved to 33-1 all-time against opponents from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.THE BIG PICTURECoppin State: The Eagles have lost 10 straight to start the season and 11 in row since the end of last year. Theyve got quite a ways to go to match the NCAA Division I record losing streak of 41 straight by Towson from Dec. 29, 2010 until the Tigers defeated UNC Wilmington on Jan. 28, 2012.Clemson: The Tigers emphasis for pre-Atlantic Coast Conference games has been to efficiently take care of business and not trip up. Thats what they did against the Eagles, putting away an overmatched opponent in a hurry. Clemson was up 30-10 just past 10 minutes in and seldom let up against Coppin State. The Tigers hit 20 of 34 shots from the field in the first half, including a 7-of-15 performance from behind the arc.ACC TITLESClemsons halftime featured the Tigers ACC championship winning football team and head coach Dabo Swinney. After Swinney thanked the fans, his players and discussed Clemsons national championship chances to the crowd, he closed by saying, `Now, lets get this basketball game.Swinney was in attendance this past Wednesday night, too, in Clemsons victory over Nebraska.ROAD TRIPPINGCoppin State is on a road trip no head coach would want to duplicate. The Eagles are playing 11 of their first 12 games away from campus. Theyve gone to Utah where theyve faced the Utes and Brigham Young, to Arizona for Grand Canyon and have been to South Carolina twice, facing Coastal Carolina last month.The hardest part of it all is just keeping the spirit of your team going, Brownell said of Coppin State and coach Michael Grant. There are nights where theyre rested and prepared to play well. And other nights where its just really hard on them.UP NEXTCoppin State is back on the road for the 10th time in its first 11 games when it travels to Akron on Wednesday night.Clemson continues with the fourth game in a five-game homestand when it takes on Mercer on Saturday. Fred Lynn Jersey . "Trying to breathe," he said with a grin.

ECCO Herre Yucatan Sandaler 069564-58405 Wild Dove Titanium Sort .Swimming has given NBC some memorable moments in Rio de Janeiro, continuing Wednesday with a third gold medal for Katie Ledecky and her American teammates in a freestyle relay. But between the surprise gold medal by Kazakhstans Dmitriy Balandin and the womens relay race, the network aired a seemingly endless series of turgid semifinals.Meanwhile, NBC held back video of the scintillating mens gymnastics all-around competition, one of the showcase sports in any Olympics. Japans Kohei Uchimura, widely considered the greatest mens gymnast in history, won the gold medal over Ukraines Oleg Verniaiev by less than one-tenth of a point.American gymnasts were out of the running. So NBC started gymnastics at 11:37 p.m. The gold medal was decided at 12:19 a.m. Thursday.Were reluctant to criticize Olympics broadcasters for being homers.

The Longhorns (14-4, 3-2) got their biggest win of the season with their third in the row in the Big 12. RIO NEGRO, Colombia -- Victims of this weeks tragic air crash in the Andes were flown home Friday as Bolivias president called for drastic measures against aviation officials who signed off on a flight plan that experts and even one of the charter airlines executives said should never have been attempted because of a possible fuel shortage.The move by President Evo Morales came after evidence emerged that the pilot reported the plane was out of fuel minutes before it slammed into a muddy mountainside, killing all but six of the 77 people on board. Among the dead were players and coaches from a small-town Brazilian soccer team that was headed to the finals of one of South Americas most prestigious tournaments after a fairy-tale season that had captivated their soccer-crazed nation.As an honor guard played taps early Friday, members of Colombias military loaded five Bolivian crew members who died in the crash onto a cargo plane for the trip back home.Later in the day, caskets containing the remains of 50 Brazilian victims, many draped with sheets printed with their teams green and white logo, began the journey to the Chapecoense clubs hometown in southern Brazil. Fourteen Brazilian journalists traveling with the team and two passengers from other South American nations were being sent home on separate flights.Bolivian flight crew member Erwin Tumiri became the first of the survivors to be released from the hospital. Before leaving, he recorded a cellphone message thanking his rescuers and the medical staff who treated him.The farewells came as details surfaced of possible negligence and unsettling family ties between the Bolivian-based charter company LaMia and the countrys aviation agency, which approved the ill-fated flight Monday between Santa Cruz, Bolivia, and Medellin, Colombia, even though it exceeded the short-haul jets maximum flying range.Attention was focused on a former Bolivian air force general, Gustavo Vargas, who is one of LaMias owners and whose son headed the office responsible for licensing aircraft in Bolivias civil aviation agency. As part of the investigation, the younger Vargas was suspended Thursday along with several other high-ranking aviation officials. The airline, whose only operable aircraft was the British Aerospace 146 Avro RJ85 that crashed, was also grounded.Morales said Friday that the elder Vargas served as his pilot in 2006. But he said that he had no knowledge of the airlines existence and called for a profound investigation to explain whether Vargas son, also named Gustavo Vargas, favored the airline, which has transported the national teams of Argentina and Brazil, as well as many other top-flight South American clubs.One of the suspended officials, Marcelo Chavez, the regional director of the agency that controls air traffic in Bolivia, told The Associated Press that an inspector pointed out irregularities in the airlines flight plan, includinng the fact that the aircrafts fuel capacity was barely enough to fly directly to Medellin. Ecco Intrinsic 2 Tilbud. Chavez said the airline decided to go ahead with the flight anyway and air traffic controllers had no authority to prevent them.On Thursday, the airlines operations director told an Argentine radio network that he also had disapproved of the flight plan. I wouldnt have flown direct, said the executive, Marco Rocha.At LaMias main office in Santa Cruz, a secretary said the airline had yet to be notified of any sanctions. A black rose was left outside the door.A recording of conversations between a pilot of the doomed flight and air traffic controllers, as well as the account of a surviving flight attendant, indicated the plane ran out of fuel before crashing just a few miles from Medellins international airport.In the flights final minutes, pilot Miguel Quiroga, who co-owned the airline with Vargas, could be heard requesting permission to land because of fuel problems, although at first he didnt make a formal distress call. He was told another plane with mechanical problems had priority to land at the airports single runway and was instructed to wait seven minutes.As the jetliner circled, the pilot grew more desperate. Complete electrical failure, without fuel, he said. By then the controller had gauged the seriousness of the situation and told the other plane to abandon its approach to make way for the charter jet. But it was too late.In Brazil, grieving fans and relatives in the soccer teams hometown of Chapeco prepared for the sad return of so many whose lives were cut short by the crash, hanging origami figures in the clubs colors on the fence of the soccer stadium, where a memorial service was to be held Saturday.Marissol Dias, who volunteers for the charity that organized the placing of the origami figures in the shape of a crane -- considered to be a symbol of peace -- said she was overwhelmed by the communitys response. Some 100,000 people were expected at the stadium -- about half of the citys population.This comes from a Japanese legend that says if you make 1,000 of these, a wish will be granted, she said. Our community did much more than we asked.Elsewhere, gravediggers prepared the ground for burial of some of the victims. At the Jardim do Eden cemetery, the caretaker said he was used to the business of death, but this felt different.We bury two people every day. Ive done this job for a long time, but this is different, said Dirceu Correa. It is a tragedy for the families, for the club, and also for us, because we are a part of the city.---Valdez reported from La Paz, Bolivia.

Sir Anthony McCoy likened Sprinter Sacre to a Ferrari following the retirement of the dual Queen Mother Champion Chase hero. Alex Avila Jersey . McCoy rode Nicky Hendersons 10-year-old just the once, when the partnership finished third in the 2011 Supreme Novices Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, and was left in awe of the great horse.He said: Sprinter Sacre was a phenomenal horse. He put up some of the best two-mile performances weve seen. Its very hard to find horses that capture the imagination like he did. He had it all the look the swagger the whole package.He was just better than all the rest of them. He just found things easy. He was such a nimble jumper for a big horse.He had a very high cruising speed and was the proper Ferrari that could jump.There are only a very few horses that catch the imagination and people outside of racing definitely knew Sprinter Sacre because he was such a dominant horse in his field.He is a big loss for the trainer and owner, for sure, but he is retiring safely.The other thing that deserves to be mentioned is that Nicky Henderson has done a terrific job to get him back last year.

That process has to start now.Theyve shown they can play in the Premier League, but the Championship is a whole other kettle of fish. There are players in there who are capable of playing in the Championship, but that wont be my decision to make.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- So this is what the year-in, year-out relentless talking about chasing perfection that starts at the top with Martha Karolyi and trickles on down to every gymnast on the five-woman U. Authentic Danny Duffy Jersey .S. Olympic team can do: Sometimes, crazy as it sounds, the idea actually does start animating every goal, permeating everyones thoughts, shaping what their dreams look like, until they get to the point where here they are in Rio, and near-perfection is literally, actually coming true.With three days down in the Olympic womens gymnastics competition and three days of individual events to go, the U.S. team is halfway to a perfect sweep of all six of the available gold medals that will be awarded here in Rio, a pie-in-the-sky sounding thought that nobody was really talking that much about before these Games began.Now look: The U.S. defended its team gold on Tuesday. Simone Biles and Aly Raisman finished 1-2 in the individual all-around on Thursday night, extending the American teams hold on that title to four straight Olympics.Biles -- already the most decorated female gymnast in history - has also qualified first for the individual events finals in the vault, floor exercise and beam and could take gold in all three. Teammate Madison Kocian has the highest qualifying score in the remaining event, the uneven bars, where shes a reigning world co-champion, and Gabby Douglas qualified third-best in that event, just a tenth of a point behind her. If Biles would falter on floor or beam, Raisman and Laurie Hernandez were the second-best qualifiers on those events behind her, respectively.But could they really run the table? Finish perfect? Pull off a clean sweep of six golds in six events?That would just be crazy, Biles admitted.Notice she also didnt rule it out.Its mind over matter, Raisman said, describing her philosophy about she frames whats possible and how she navigates doubt. If you believe you can or you cant, you probably will.Both of them looked a little weary Friday morning when they met the press. The wakeup call and ride to the Olympic main press center for their 9:30 a.m. session with Kocian, Douglas and Hernandez had to feel like it came early for them. It was the morning after an emotional night that Biles repeatedly called the best day of her 19-year-old life, but now the just-crowned Olympic all-around champion sat on the edge of the dais, trying to stay off her feet. Down the line, Raisman was re-living what she called her redemptive performance for the silver medal and how gratified she felt about her 4-for-4 night without a bobble in her routines, but she also sat in a chair, conserving energy.If they were exhausted, they wouldnt admit it.I think if you ask [multi-event swimmer] Michael Phelps, he would say the same thing -- you know you have less left to do, so you just keep going, said Biles.If Biles, the reigning three-time world champion, does sweep all three of her remaining events, and Kocians, Hernandezs, Raismans and Douglas coming performances match their qualifying scores, the U.S. team could walk away from these Olympics with a total of 14 medals scattered among the five-woman team. Thats extraordinary.So far, they have hit all 20 routines theyve thrown. If they go 7-for-7 in the coming three days, pushing them to 27-for-27 at this competition, that Final Five nickname theyve chosen for themselves -- partly as an homage to 73-year-old Karolyi, who is retiring after Rio -- might seem too pedestrian to capture it all.It could be a long time before the sport sees a team as deep and talented and immune to pressure as this team has been.Told Friday they are making this look easy, Biles -- ever the cold-eyed pragmatist -- looked at the TV reporter who made the statement and said, Well, thats our job, crinkling her nose a little as if its so obvious. If we make it look tough, she added, I think it would be a problem.Everyone laughed.Raisman is right, of course, to say the teams relentless pursuit of perfection is a mindset as much as happy accident of timing that put them all together like this at the same time and place in history. Both she and Aimee Boorman, Biles coach, have paid homage again and again the past two days to Karolyis tone-setting guidance. Boorman told a story about how when Biles got to the beam Thursday night, the most landmine-strewn of all the events, and she was trailing Russias Aliya Mustafina by a few tenths, I was thinking, JUST DONT FALL Boorman admitted. But Simone just looked at me and said, I got this. Thats something Martha does such a great job with them. She teaches them that attitude throughout their training. She tells them, How many times have you done these sets?Now theyre at the point they repeat it all reflexively -- the mantra, their sets, the all-for-one attitude that Karolyi also insisted on. As Mihai Brestyan, Raismans longtime personal coach, said, You have all the time the biggest expectations. But then here, you seen its happening! As Raisman finished her final event, the floor, Thursday night, she could see him out of the corner of her eye, pumping his fists and starting to cry.After the medals by Biles and Raisman were won, it was actually a little humorous Thursday night to see Karolyi -- ever the teacher, forever a coach -- lingering in the nearly empty mixed-zone press area long after the all-around event was over, energetically explaining the perfection mantra to an overseas TV crew who asked her how the U.S. program became this good. It was like watching a preacher who loves to spread the Word. The longer Karolyi has preached chasing perfection, the more it has seemed to come true. Sixteen years ago when she started imprinting the idea on the drifting U.S. program, it seemed like a buzzword shed dusted off from the days she coached Nadia Comenci to a gold medals and perfect 10s at the 1976 Games. No one says that anymore.Karolyi likes to say, Perfection is an attitude, not just an act. Right now, no team at these Games looks as perfect as this U.S. gymnastics team. Appreciate them before theyre gone. It will be fascinating to see if they can keep it up for four more events.

Magic coach Julie Fitzgerald pushed Jo Harten (40/44) back to goal shoot at the first break, replacing Paula Griffin (3/3) with Ellen Halpenny at goal attack, and the home team never looked back.With Halpenny (13/17) and Harten converting the turnover ball generated by a more combative midcourt defence, the Magic took the second quarter 17-10 to cut back Adelaides lead to 27-26.The Thunderbirds bossed the early stages of the third quarter to extend their lead out to five, but the Magic finished the spell with a roar in sinking four goals on end to hit the front 43-41 with 15 minutes remaining.The two teams matched each other goal for goal right until de Bruin snared the key intercept with just 30 seconds remaining.

TAMPA, Fla. Jose Abreu Jersey . -- Nine games into his bid to transform the bumbling Tampa Bay Buccaneers into championship contenders, the normally unflappable Tony Dungy reached a boiling point.A 1-8 record was discouraging, but hardly the only disheartening aspect of yet another slow start for a perennial last-place franchise that suffered through 13 consecutive losing seasons before the young coachs arrival in 1996.The soft-spoken Dungy, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, recalled walking into his office after a third consecutive loss by six or fewer points on the road and learning one player failed to show up for an off-day appearance at an elementary school. Another was 45 minutes late for an autograph session at a car dealership.The Oakland Raiders were headed to town that week, but there was more pressing business at hand.We go into our nine oclock meeting, supposedly to introduce the game plan on the Raiders. I said: `Let me just show you something, and put the two notes on the overhead projector. This is what were dealing with, Dungy said.`You want to know why we arent winning. This is why we arent winning. I said, we can give you game plans, we can do tackling drills, we can do all that, its not going to change until you guys get this figured out, and I dont know how to do that because Ive been doing it for three months, the coach added. I left, let the players talk about it. We ended up beating the Raiders in overtime.Dungys even temperament and insistence on players doing things the right way not only helped him survive his only losing season to lead Tampa Bay to four playoff berths in six seasons, but also become the first African-American to win a Super Bowl as a head coach during a stellar seven-year run with the Indianapolis Colts.And while an impressive coaching resume speaks for itself, the 60-year-olds greatest legacy may be the impact hes had on peoples lives through various civic and charitable endeavors.I never felt our only job was to win, said Dungy, 139-69 in 13 seasons, including 85-27 with the Colts from 2002-08.The disciple of Hall of Famer Chuck Noll had a combined 9-10 postseason record, leading the Bucs to the NFC title game in 1999 and winning it all with the 2006 Colts.His place in history is not lost on Dungy, the first black elected to the Hall of Fame on the basis of coaching accomplishments. The time he spent as a player and assistant under Noll shaped his philosophy.Coach Noll was so tremendous in that regard talking about your life, not just football. That yes, we want to accomplish some things, but you had to get ready for life, Dungy said, You had to figure out what you were going to be all about as a person.There were only a handful of black assistants in the NFL when Dungy entered the league as a player in 1977. He spent 15 seasons as part of successful staffs in Pittsburgh, Kansas City and Minnesota before getting to lead his own team.I think, first, of the guys who could only coach in the black schools. You cant tell me that Eddie Robinson and John Merritt and Jake Gaither wouldnt have won in the National Football League.Then you had guys who were assistants, who were never thought of as coordinators or head coaches. It wasnt in the realm of things, said Dungy, now an analyst for NBCs Football Night in America.Despite leading teams to the playoffs in 11 of 13 seasons as a head coach, Dungy endured plenty of criticism.He was fired by Tampa Bay in 2001, two years after reaching the NFC championship game. Although the Colts made the playoffs in each of his seven seasons, some detractors argue Dungy should have won more Super Bowls with a high-powered offense led by Peyton Manning and receiver Marvin Harrison, whos also part of this years Hall of Fame class.Dungys resume includes an NFL-record 10 consecutive playoff berths with the Bucs and Colts. Still, he believes the contributions he -- and many of his players -- made off the field matter most.In our first meeting, he talked about changing the community, thats how were going to win, said former Bucs linebacker Derrick Brooks, a first-ballot Hall of Famer enshrined two years ago.It wasnt about Xs and Os. I was a little appalled, thinking how can you start out and youre not talking about wins when I lost more games last year than I did in my whole (college) career. But it was intriguing.I talked to him after that, and he told me: `Derrick, this is bigger than football, Brooks added. Were going to change the community, and through that everybody wins.He sought to do the same in Indianapolis.That was what was so enticing to me about the Colts job. When Jim Irsay called me, he said we want to win, obviously, we want to go to Super Bowls, and thats the goal. But were relatively new in Indianapolis, and we dont have the history of 75 years of football, Dungy said.He said: `Weve got to attract the community, got to become a part of it. He mentioned he wanted to do it like the Steelers did.Though Dungy walked away from coaching after the 2008 season, his influence remains.Six of his former assistants -- Mike Tomlin, Herman Edwards, Jim Caldwell, Rod Marinelli, Leslie Frazier and Lovie Smith -have held head coaching positions. Tomlin has won a Super Bowl, while Caldwell and Smith have guided teams to the title game.For guys like me, he was a living breathing role model, Tomlin said. He really provided great clarity in terms of what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it.Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp calls Dungy the greatest man I ever met in my life. He and Brooks were drafted in the first round in 1995, the year before Dungy arrived.Did I ever think in 1996 when he challenged Sapp and I to be the Joe Greene and Jack Ham of his defense, that the three of us would be teammates 20 years later in the Hall of Fame? Brooks asked. Absolutely not. I had no idea. But here we are.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Chicago White Sox Jerseys .

Mark Warburtons side got over the line at a sold-out Ibrox after a 1-0 win over Dumbarton earlier this month.Here we take a look at the footballing journey the club has been on since they were last in the top tier. Four years after Rangers demotion to Scotlands lowest league, heres a brief look at the Glasgow giants return to the top tier of Scottish football. 2012/13 - The SFL Third Division Captain Lee McCulloch lifts the old Scottish Third Division trophy Rangers were refused entry to the then SPL by its member clubs in July 2012, but they were accepted by the SFL into its lowest league.As they entered unknown territory, Rangers fans were anticipating trips to football grounds they had never been before.The Division 3 campaign started with a trip to Peterhead.Barrie McKay scored Rangers first goal in Scotlands bottom tier but it took until injury time before Andy Little earned a point as they drew 2-2.That day the potential pitfalls of strolling through the leagues were made plain to the 4,500 supporters that crammed in to Balmoor Stadium.The first league match of the season at Ibrox saw an official attendance of 49,118; a world record for a fourth tier football match. The fans expectations were met as an Andy Little hat-trick led to a 5-1 win against East Stirling. Rangers fans continued to turn out at Ibrox despite playing in the bottom tier of Scottish football. Uninspiring draws at Berwick Rangers and Annan Athletic followed in the weeks to come but the season was probably epitomised best by the 1-0 victory away to Queens Park on 29th December 2012.Around 30,000 Rangers fans shuffled into Hampden on a freezing winters day and were greeted with a banal performance from an experienced side. It took a last-minute Fraser Aird strike to secure the three points despite playing against 10 men for the final third of the game.A full-back by the name of Andrew Robertson started for part-time Queens Park that day, an indication of how much has happened in the game since Rangers were playing at that level.Fan frustrations at this point in the season were less about results (Rangers were 15 points clear at the top of the table) but more to do with the unconvincing performances from a squad that, on paper at least, possessed plenty of quality within its ranks. Andrew Little (left) and Chris Hegarty hang their heads as Inverness CT go 3-0 in front in League Cup Ally McCoists men had already been put out of the League Cup after a disappointing 3-0 home defeat to an in-form Inverness CT, they then lost in the Scottish Cup fifth round to Dundee United at Tannadice.However, these types of defeat wouldnt be the most disappointing for the Rangers fans that season.They were beaten at home twice, to Annan Athletic and Peterhead, in the space of six weeks towards the end of the campaign; not the kind of results a near full Ibrox would expect at any time against such opposition.Rangers were always in control of the league though and went on to claim the Third Division title by 24 points, gaining promotion to what would be called League One after the merger between the SPL and SFL in the summer of 2013.2013/14 - SPFL League One Rangers were unbeaten in the league in 2013/14, winning 102 points Some unconvincing displays in 2012/13 perhaps meant Rangers didnt get as much credit for their forthcoming years performances.Captain Lee McCulloch helped lead Rangers to a record league campaign where they amassed 102 points and scored 106 goals in 36 matches.Rangers superior starting point played a huge part in this. Their budget eclipsed all other teams, bar Celtic, in Scotland. Adding to this significant advantage, the clubs transfer embargo ended over the summer.Ally McCoist splashed out on a number of seasoned professionals; Jon Daly, Nicky Clark, Nicky Law, Bilel Mohsni, Cammy Bell and the late Arnold Peralta were among those to arrive at Murray Park. Some of Rangers signings summer of 2013: (Left-right) Nicky Clark, Richard Foster, Nicky Law, Stevie Smith, Arnold Peralta, Cammy Bell, Jon Daly and Bilel The additions to the squad certainly helped as Rangers were far more dominant and comfortable in the league that year despite stepping up a division.An early exit in the League Cup to Forfar Athletic was far from the ideal start to the year but it wasnt until April that Rangers next lost a match in 90 minutes. That defeat came in the Scottish Cup semi-final, again to Dundee United.The week before this semi-final defeat Rangers suffered an extra-time loss to Raith Rovers in the Scottish Challenge Cup final. Off-field problems were by now dominating Rangers fans worries, but this defeat was among the lowest points for supporters during the clubs lower league escapades.Nevertheless Ally McCoists main priority that season was achieved as he guided Rangers to a record breaking season unbeaten in the league. Stage two of the plan to take Rangers back to the Premiership had been achieved.2014/15 - SPFL Championship (left-right) Craig Levein, Ann Budge and Robbie Neilson of Hearts with the Championship trophy The final part of Rangers journey back to the top of Scottish football was made harder when two of the countrys bigger clubs were relegated to the Championship.Hearts demotion was confirmed long in advance of the close of the 2013/14 season, as administration and a points deduction took hold.But Hibernians shock relegation through the play-offs meant three of Scotland biggest clubs were now competing for two promotion places.Off-field controversies made this season difficult for everyone at Rangers. While no excuses were made for failing to gain promotion given their far loftier budget, these problems certainly played their part as they took their toll on the staff at the club. Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson (left) celebrates with match winner Osman Sow after their 2-1 win at Ibrox. The opening day of the Championship provided an almost perfect summary of the year ahead. On 10th of August 2014 Hearts came to Ibrox with youth, enthusiasm and desire, and consequently travelled back to Edinburgh with a deserved three points.Within the Rangers side that played against Hearts, Lewis MacLeod was the only one not to have multiple Premiership campaigns under his belt. Many Rangers supporters were lamentting the lack of youth blooded throughout their exile from the top-flight. Carlton Fisk Jersey. This feeling was amplified having seen what Hearts had done during their financial troubles. Another home defeat to Hibs the following month piled the pressure on McCoist and further weakened his status with the fans. Elimination from the Challenge Cup at the semi-final stage in December meant Rangers failed to win the lower league competition in their first three attempts.Later that month McCoist tendered his resignation and triggered a 12-month notice period, but he was placed on gardening leave, with Hearts nine points clear having played a game more.Despite a turbulent time at the helm of Rangers, McCoist will always be held in high regard by the majority of the blue half of Glasgow, largely for his feats as a player. Rangers Manager Ally McCoist arrives at Palmerston Park on the day he tendered for his resignation from the club Many Rangers supporters understood the awkward position the clubs all-time leading goal-scorer found himself in.With chairmen and board members constantly absent from answering the difficult questions on Rangers off-field problems, McCoist was left to cope with the pressure of being the spokesperson on everything and anything at Rangers.He coped with it all admirably throughout his tenure, most of the time keeping his famous good humour and wit regardless of the stress he was under.Yet as a coach he was sometimes found wanting, and in the end his departure came as a relief to all parties.McCoists number two Kenny McDowall stepped into the fray, and promptly lost 4-0 to Hibs in his first game in charge on 27th December. It was clear he did not envisage staying in the position in the long term. Kenny McDowall lost his first match as Rangers caretaker manager A much anticipated return of the Old Firm came in early 2015 as they were drawn together in the League Cup semi-final.Its not often you can call a derby match between Rangers and Celtic forgettable, but this tie certainly isnt one that will live long in the memory.Celtic raced in to a 2-0 lead early on through goals from Leigh Griffiths and Kris Commons in the first half. Rangers didnt manage a shot on target all afternoon as Celtic eased to victory. Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths scores against Rangers in last seasons League Cup semi-final In January McDowall tendered his resignation and left the club, with Stuart McCall coming in to take charge until the end of the season. Hearts won the league at a canter, securing the title in late March. Rangers finished the season in a disappointing third behind both Edinburgh clubs, 24 points off champions Hearts.But McCall managed to help orchestrate wins in the play-offs against Queen of the South and Hibs. His former team Motherwell awaited in the final for a place in the Scottish Premiership.In a game that was a lot closer than the scoreline suggested, Rangers were 3-0 down at home after 47 minutes. Darren McGregor netted late on to give McCall hope going in to the second leg five days later but a far more comfortable 3-0 Motherwell win confined Rangers to at least one more season in the Championship.The ignominy of this defeat was compounded by the ugly post-match scenes in which defender Bilel Mohsni ended up with a seven-match ban for an altercation with Motherwells Lee Erwin.2015/16 - SPFL Championship Rangers appointed Mark Warburton and David Weir at the start of 2015/16 season In March 2015 former director Dave King and his allies had won control of the club at an Emergency General Meeting, removing the previous board from power.Although he appointed Stuart McCall to his post until the end of the season it wasnt until the summer that King made any real changes.The club released 11 of the first team players that had failed to win promotion the year before, with King openly criticising their performances and professionalism.Former Brentford manager Mark Warburton and Rangers hero David Weir were appointed as the new managerial team at Ibrox, and they brought in a host of names many fans initially struggled to recognise.Warburtons signings were to prove themselves at Championship level, showing consistency in both results and performance.Such was the impact of Warburtons arrival that a song quickly emerged about the new manager being in the possession magic hat. He won his first 11 matches in charge, scoring 40 goals with an attractive brand of football that has been delighting the Rangers supporters all season. Former St Johnstone midfielder Michael OHalloran (left) is chased down by Rangers Rob Kiernan A resounding 3-1 defeat to St Johnstone in the League Cup back in September gave Warburtons side a dose of reality and showed how far they still have to go. Future signing Michael OHalloran ran Danny Wilson and Rob Kiernan ragged in a game Rangers didnt look like winning.Even though Rangers were in imperious form in the league Hibs (and Falkirk) managed to keep tabs with the Ibrox club for a time. Hibs even drew level with Rangers in December but soon after the lead was stretched to insurmountable proportions.A late equaliser for Raith Rovers may have delayed Rangers title party for a couple of days but Mark Warburton and his squad completed the clubs journey to the top with a win against Dumbarton. In the meantime, Rangers 4-0 demolition of Dundee in the Scottish Cup quarter-finals set up a mouth-watering match against Celtic. This fixture promises to be more competitive than last years League Cup equivalent. Rangers players celebrate their third goal against Dundee in their Scottish Cup quarter-final win. The victory over Premiership side Dundee in the fifth round just days after Paul Hartleys side held Celtic to a stalemate at Celtic Park is an indication of how much closer the sides will be matched.European football awaits the winners of the Scottish Cup, and the most optimistic of Rangers fans will already be looking out their passports at least a year earlier than they expected.Rangers going forward (Left-right) Stewart Robertson, Rangers manager Mark Warburton, chairman Dave King, vice-chairman Paul Murray and John Gilligan at the clubs AGM A couple of major questions remain for the Rangers faithful going forward.One of their biggest fears is the ability of Dave King to hold on to Mark Warburton and David Weir as their managerial set-up.Warburton attracted many suitors even before his arrival at Rangers given the job he did at Brentford. No matter how consistent his rhetoric that he will be at Ibrox for at least the length of his contract, his name continues to be linked with vacancies in England.The other subject that is high on supporters minds is whether chairman King delivers on his promises of investing significant cash in the playing squad.While Rangers have strolled to the league title, the amount of money spent of players since Kings arrival in March has been minimal by traditional Rangers standards.King will argue he has always said he would spend whatever was necessary to get Rangers promoted.Yet the transfer fees paid thus far are not in the region of investment King has implied he would make at media conferences since his takeover. The coming months will determine if the outlay on players and wages will increase towards the level required to challenge for the Scottish Premiership title.WATCH: The Old Firm Scottish Cup semi-final between Rangers and Celtic on Sunday April 17th live on Sky Sports.

Indias Palpreet Singh Brar has taken one step closer to the NBA after being drafted by the Long Island Nets of NBAs D-League or Development League. Tyler Ennis Jersey . He becomes the second Indian after Satnam Singh to feature in the D-league.The NBA Development League is the NBAs official minor league, preparing players, coaches, officials, trainers, and front-office staff for the NBA while acting as the leagues research and development laboratory. The Long Island Nets are an affiliate of the NBA team Brooklyn Nets.I called my father first after I got the news. This achievement is for India and the whole of Punjab, Palpreet said. I am happy with the efforts I have put in and I will continue to work hard with Long Island Nets as this is just the beginning. I cant say I will reach somewhere in the next few years, but I will give my 100%.?Two other Indians Amjyot Singh and Amrinder Singh were also a part of the drafting process, but 21 year-old Palpreet- the youngest of the lot - was the only one who was picked at the draft.With the 80th pick of the 2016 #DLeagueDraft, the @LongIslandNets select Palpreet Singh out of India! pic.twitter.com/JyicqhM5nJ- NBA D-League (@nbadleague) 30 October 2016The 6 feet 9 inches tall power forward didnt play for India at the recently concluded FIBA Asia Challenge Championship as he was training at the New York Athletic Club in Manhattan to get in shape for the draft. Amjyot Singh and Amrinder Singh represented India at the FIBA Asia Challenge as India impressed by beating a higher ranked China side en route to reaching the quarterfinals.?I think the training in New York helped a lot, but I want to play for my country as well. I thought training here would eventually make me a better player which will help me making the national team in the future.When asked if he followed any players in the NBA, he said, I dont follow any player in the NBA. I just want to play my natural game. I just want to be Palpreet.Palpreet thanked his coach, Dr. Sankaran Subramanian - who has ?spent 43 years as a basketball coach in India - for having a huge impact on his career.I am very lucky to be coached by Subramanian sir.

Subramanian was the coach of the Punjab state team, the director and chief of the Ludhiana Basketball Academy (LBA) in Punjab.Palpreet will now aim to make it to the 10 player roster that will represent the Long Island Nets before the start of the season. The NBA D-Leagues 16th season starts on November 11 with a record 22 teams. The teams will hold training camps beginning on Oct. 31, and will trim their rosters to 10 players on November 10. Mikael Granlund Jersey . -- Lou Brocks shoulder-to-shoulder collision with Bill Freehan during the 1968 World Series and Pete Roses bruising hit on Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star game could become relics of baseball history, like the dead-ball era. Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys . 8 Iowa State on Saturday, sending the Cyclones to their third consecutive loss. The Longhorns (14-4, 3-2) got their biggest win of the season with their third in the row in the Big 12. http://www.cheapwildjerseys.com/?tag=adi...tt-dumba-jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. The New York Yankees have signed closer Aroldis Chapman to a record five-year, $86 million deal -- one thats put many fans in the all-too-familiar position of discomfort over a star player with a problematic past. While Chapmans domestic violence history calls into question the priorities of the team, it also presents a unique opportunity for the organization, the league and advocacy groups to use this signing to do some good for victims and their families.First, lets just get this out of the way: There are a ton of purely baseball reasons for skepticism over signing Chapman to the largest contract ever for a relief pitcher. As ESPNs Andrew Marchand put it, the deal is too long, for too much money, for the wrong guy.Chapmans prowess on the mound is undeniable, but his immediate payoff wont be a game-changer for a team banking on a youth-oriented strategy that realistically wont make a meaningful World Series run for at least a couple of seasons. Similarly, Keith Law analyzed 12 long-term contracts for relief pitchers and found their track record to be terrible, while noting that Chapmans reliance on his 100 mph fastball doesnt inspire confidence in the longevity of his arm.Putting baseball aside, both men noted that Chapmans character issues should raise red flags. Those of us who care deeply about domestic violence and its victims constantly bang the drum when teams enable dangerous behavior by rewarding perpetrators with millions of dollars.But its not just about the women on the other end of those police reports; as weve seen with former Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy and former Giants kicker Josh Brown, sometimes violent behavior -- and a complete lack of remorse thereof -- is part of a broader pattern that can lead to issues in the locker room. If fans dont want to be bothered with the moral implications of signing a player whose actions go unchecked, they should at least be concerned with how those actions can affect the team.That said, Chapman has served his time, sitting through a 30-game MLB-issued suspension at the start of this past season. Potential?zero-tolerance policies?with heavier penalties, while seemingly well-intentioned, carry real consequences for the victims of domestic abuse, often failing to prioritize their best interests in favor of the optics of tough punishments.As such, fans are left wondering how to reconcile the tension between caring about victims and caring about their team. As a Yankees fan, Ive written about the dilemma of not being able to feel joy for saves earned by a player I would rather not have on my team, despite how much he adds to our win total. Similarly, my colleague Sarah Spain -- a lifelong Cubs fan confronted with the same dilemma when the Yankees traded Chapman to Chicago in July, part of the Cubs historic World Series run -- has been outspoken about the dread she felt about his joining her team.All we can do as fans is continue to have these complicated conversations and hope that something good can come out of them, urging our teams to use these troubled players as catalysts for real change. When Chapman joined the Cubs, a fan channeled her mixed emotions and started the viral Twitter account and hashtag #pitchin4DV, pledging to donate $10 to Chicago-based domestic violence advocacy groups for every save Chapman recorded and encouraging other fans to do the same. To date, the effort has raised close to $40,000.Chapmans signing presents an opportuniity to New York-based organizations to implement similar campaigns to make the best of an uncomfortable situation. Alex Stalock Jersey. Ive yet to hear of any such efforts from these groups, but theres plenty of time between now and spring training to seize this chance.Beyond that, the Yankees and MLB should take the lead on raising awareness for this cause and avoid the familiar pattern of teams and leagues simply ignoring the past transgressions of players, hoping well all just forget about it. Its not enough to just dedicate a day or a week or a month to wearing purple in a shallow show of support for domestic violence victims.In fact, the team and the league already have a relationship with the Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation, started by the former Yankees manager, who has a very personal connection to this issue, having grown up watching his father abuse his mother for years. Torre serves as MLBs chief baseball officer; hes in prime position to convince other league executives that its in everyones best interest to take a strong stance on domestic violence.Its important to note that any such campaign cant simply stop at raising awareness. There needs to be a real effort to influence behavior and provide outlets for players and spouses experiencing abuse.It is now time for domestic violence providers to begin to work with fans on what the next steps will be, said Margaret Duval, the executive director of the Domestic Violence Legal Clinic, one of the Chicago-based organizations that received donations from the #pitchin4DV effort. Agencies across the country ... are strapped for resources. Now is the time to start thinking of, what are the other ways we can engage with teams to make sure that were handling these cases appropriately?Duval also encourages teams to engage with local groups. Advocates are still learning exactly what those steps should be, but the key will be all parties working together to form real solutions. As a start, Duval said she likes educational programs similar to the ones implemented by the NBA and NFL in their respective rookie camps to make sure that they learn more about consent, that they have a better understanding of intimate partner violence and what that looks like.And while most advocates favor pre-emptive measures over punitive ones, its important for the league to enact policies that properly deal with players and their families once abuse has occurred, that they have an actual resource for the survivor and that its not the teams management that is trying to interface with law enforcement, and that the survivor has the resources that she needs, Duval said.MLB has worked with advocacy groups in shaping its new domestic violence policy, which is considered stronger than that of other leagues. The Chapman signing provides even more space, with a high-profile player, on the leagues most storied team, in the countrys largest media market, to truly effect change. A little more than two months ago, the Yankees participated in the #NotAFan campaign against domestic abuse, urging fans to wear purple and producing a PSA in which current manager Joe Girardi declared, Im a baseball fan, Im a Yankee fan. Im not a fan of domestic violence.As a baseball fan, and a Yankees fan, I hope my team can put its money where its mouth is and not just in Chapmans pocket.
