The final major championship of the golfing calendar begins on Thursday with the Evian Championship, which finds two of the brightest stars in the womens game at the head of the list of contenders. Air Max Outlet España .Lydia Ko of New Zealand, who is the top-ranked player in the world, returns to the Evian Resort Golf Club near Paris, where she captured her first major championship a year ago. When she returned for a practice round this past Sunday, a host of memories came to light.When I first played the 18th hole on Sunday, this past Sunday, a lot of memories (came back), Ko said. Walking down the 18th on that last day, it was so much more than I could have ever imagined it. To know that I had a lead coming down the last hole so that I could have a little bit of a breathing room. I think was great. It just brought a lot of great memories.Kos own recollections of that memorable Sunday afternoon remain vivid.To remember all the seats by the green to be all full of people, for people to cheer our final group on, and the double whammy tears and the New Zealand flag, theres so many great things about this event, she said. ... but its just really hard to choose one best one because every moment really stood out to me.Ko and Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand rank one and two, respectively, in the world rankings as well as the battle for the Rolex Player of the Year Award. Jutanugarn, who has a tour-leading five victories this season, is once again planning to leave her drive out of her bag.I tried to hit driver on Monday, she said, but Im not really (feeling) comfortable because this course is really narrow and its not that long to me to hit driver, so no driver this week.Several other players are chasing historical milestones this week. Yani Tseng (Taiwan) and Laura Davies (England) each can complete a career grand slam with a victory here. In addition, Karrie Webb (Australia) is trying to win her sixth different major championship.The field also includes Brooke Henderson (Canada), In Gee Chun (South Korea), Carolta Ciganda (Spain), Suzann Pettersen (Norway), Charley Hull (England), Anna Nordqvist (Sweeden) and Stacy Lewis (United States).The golf course will play to 6,470 yards with a par of 71.

Miller reached right to deflect Mikhail Grabovskis attempt with just over 2 minutes remaining in regulation, and then made two more saves in the shootout Sunday to give the Sabres a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals. Air Max Baratas España . He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. . Oaklands loss to Seattle clinched the ALs best record for the Red Sox with one day to spare in the regular season. "I think everybody was kind of watching," catcher David Ross said. "Demp (Ryan Dempster) came out before he went to the bullpen and was just yelling that they lost. Australian captain Cameron Smith will leapfrog coach Mal Meninga on the international appearance list when the Kangaroos take on New Zealand in Coventry next week.Smith played his 46th game in the green and gold against Scotland in Hull on Friday to draw level with Meningas tally and will only trail Darren Lockyer (59) on the all-time list if he plays against the Kiwis next week.Mal let me know I was equalling his record on the team walk this morning, Smith said.Its funny, because I have 46 Test matches and 23 of them as captain and that is what Mal finished with and he said this will probably be your last game!Hoppefully I get another start. Air Max Baratas Outlet. Smith has worked under Meninga for over a decade with Queensland and now Australia and the 33-year-old said hes honoured to have matched his milestone.Mal was a guy I looked up to as a young boy. He was part of my dream to become and Australian representative, Smith said.Ive been lucky enough to be coached by Mal for a while now, but the last 10 months have been special.And to play the same amount of games as a Kangaroos legend is quite humbling.

PHOENIX -- Villanova already has lofty expectations this season as the reigning national champion. Air Max 95 Outlet . The Wildcats also have to deal with opposing fans screaming louder and opposing teams playing them harder.Villanova has handled anything thats come its way to this point, but everything ratchets up another level now that the Wildcats are No. 1 in the AP Top 25 for the second time in school history.So far, we have, coach Jay Wright said about managing expectations. This puts more on top of that. I do think last year when we were ranked No. 1, we handled it pretty well but I do think it got to a point by the time we got to Xavier where it got to us a little bit.Villanova had to adjust to being No. 1 for the first time in school history last season. The Wildcats handled it well through the first two weeks, but the pressure continued to build, contributing to a loss to Xavier.Villanova went on to win the national championship and entered this season ranked No. 4 in the AP preseason poll. The Wildcats moved up to No. 2 by week 3 and this week received 57 of 65 first-place votes to supplant Kentucky at No. 1.The Wildcats (8-0) at least know what to expect heading into games against La Salle on Tuesday and No. 23 Notre Dame on Saturday.We know what its like, Wright said. We know what the attention is like, we know what the effort of the other team is like. Our first thought is, this gets La Salle to even another level.---KENTUCKY BOUNCEBACKKentucky coach John Calipari said last week that he wanted his team to play a close game after the Wildcats won their first seven by 21 points or more.Kentucky got more than that on Saturday, when it lost 97-92 to then-No. 11 UCLA in Lexington. The loss ended the Wildcats home winning streak at 42 games and dropped them to No. 6 in this weeks poll.Kentucky (7-1) hosts Valparaiso on Wednesday and Hofstra on Sunday.There are great lessons out of this, Calipari said after the UCLA defeat. I wish we would have come back and won. I would have liked to learn from that lesson a little bit more. But sometimes you need to get hit on the chin, especially at home.---BRUINS RISINGUCLAs win over Kentucky gave the Bruins (9-0) a huge boost in the poll, moving them up nine spots to No. 2 on Monday. They also received two first-place votes.UCLA also gets to savor the victory over the Wildcats, getting a week off before facing another difficult game Saturday against Michigan at Pauley Pavilion.We have a goal: from good to great, UCLA coach Steve Alford said. Were not great yet, but we knew we were good coming in. We took a pretty good step toward being a little bit better than good.---ANNIVERSARY GAMENo. 5 Duke (8-1) has a tough game Tuesday night, facing No. 21 Florida at Madison Square Garden.On Saturday, the Blue Devils will play UNLV at the new T-Mobile Arena along The Strip in Las Vegas. The game will be the first meeting between the teams since Duke knocked off undefeated UNLV in the 1991 Final Four on its way to the first of five national championships for coach Mike Krzyzewski.The Runnin Rebels (5-3) are rebuilding in their first season under Marvin Menzies, and Duke is finally getting healthy, so it probably wont come close to living up to that epic game 25 years ago.---BIG SATURDAYSaturday has a big slate of games involving ranked teams, including No. 3 Kansas vs. Nebraska, No. 11 Xavier vs. Utah, No. 16 Butler against No. 23 Cincinnati, No. 17 Wisconsin at Marquette, and No. 20 Arizona at Missouri.---WATCH LISTTeams to keep an eye on this week for possible entry into the poll next week:Southern California. The Trojans (8-0) are still undefeated and have one game this week, against Pepperdine.Ohio State. The Buckeyes (7-1) played No. 14 Virginia close last week, with Florida Atlantic and UConn coming up this week.Florida State. The Seminoles (7-1) make a run at being ranked by winning all three of their games this week, a schedule that includes No. 21 Florida on Sunday. Wholesale Air Max 95 .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Discount Air Max 95 . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . . Supported by three-run homers from Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos, the young right-hander went seven strong innings in the Washington Nationals 8-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. We stood on the deck of the white ocean liner as it slid out of the dock in Bombay. In silent fascination we stared at the Gateway of India, where an emperor had once landed to proclaim his possession of the brightest jewel in the crown, the glorious monument erected for his majestic entrance now a sad, receding landmark of our exit from the subcontinent. The ship eased past the fishermens boats and the ferry coming in from Elephanta Caves and headed out to what, in my boyish imagination, was Ali Babas magical ocean, the Arabian Sea. Also among the crowd on the deck where I stood with my parents were four famous cricketers and I threw unbelieving glances at them to confirm they were really there, an excited vibration bubbling through my blood at my luck not just to be watching them from beyond the boundary but to be sailing to England with them as my companions.Three of the cricketers were Indians: BB Nimbalkar, who had come close to beating Don Bradmans world record when he scored 443 not out in a Ranji Trophy match three years earlier; Gul Mohammad, known for once pulling a six that went chest high all the way into the stand at square leg; and Indias foremost allrounder, Vinoo Mankad. It was March 1952, and a month later the English cricket season was to begin with India that summers visiting team. These three had not been selected to play for India and were going to play for clubs in the Lancashire League, a lucrative refuge for international cricketers at a loose end. A similar professional arrangement in Australia attracted English players during the southern summer, and one such was the fourth cricketer on board, Jim Laker.Serenely, as if gliding on a mirror of the sea, the SS Stratheden slid out of Bom Bahia, the Good Bay, that was once a proud Portuguese possession before they presented it to the English as dowry in a royal alliance. The island of Bombay sank behind us, a haze fell over the Malabar coast, India receded.And then all is blue and sunny in the recollections of the next fortnight that flash in my mind. As for how it happened and what we talked about, over 60 years later I have no memory. But even before we stopped in Aden four days later, I was friends with the four cricketers, playing deck quoits with Laker and Mankad, and chatting with Nimbalkar and Gul in the bar. We were together in a group when the ship docked in Aden and Marseille, and we went ashore. Gul never seemed to leave the bar, and the sharp image of him - of his round face and short, straight black hair with its side parting, head bent with his eyes fixed on the glass of beer - has not lost a single pixel all these years later; a sad image, which alternates in my mind with those from a match I watched him play at the Brabourne Stadium.Paying their own fare, the four cricketers were travelling second class, and I heard that the entire West Indies team, which had completed the 1951-52 tour of Australia, was on board the SS Stratheden in first class. I had seen them play at the Brabourne Stadium when they toured India in 1948-49, the towering Clyde Walcott, maroon cap on his head, grinning after a back-footed shot straight past the bowler, and Everton Weekes square-cutting with ferocious power on his march to a fifth consecutive Test century. Unbelievably, here they all were, even Sonny Ramadhin and Alf Valentine, those little pals of mine, and its still impossible to mention their names without hearing that song and doing a happy little jig. To see them, all I needed was to slip into the ships forbidden first-class territory, not too difficult a project for the chameleon capabilities of a 17-year-old boy.And there they were, some eight or nine of them lying in deckchairs scattered on the immaculately painted deck. I stared in awe at each and, with palpitating heart, wondered if I dare approach them for autographs, but did not, largely because I did not want to be noticed by the ships staff. I stayed long enough to satisfy my curious eyes and withdrew. The picture has remained like a vivid dream for over 60 years, though only as a general composition of bodies on a deck without a particular identification, as if arranged there by way of a modern art installation, lying limply resigned to the seemingly unending months-long voyage.T he 1952 English season began soon after we arrived in early April. Being among the earliest immigrants after the dissolution of the Empire, our racial identity made us conspicuous among the native English. When I enrolled in a grammar school in London at the start of the summer term, as the only brown-skinned boy in a sea of pink bodies, it was neither unnatural nor surprising that I should be the object of mockery and insults. But not for long. Come the games afternoon for the senior boys, the cricket master saw me with the bat, and within weeks I was opening the innings for the 1st XI, and before the term ended Id won the respect of the whole school.In the meanwhile the Indian team arrived for their tour and I went to see a traditional friendly opener, on a dull, blustery day at the end of April, against an Indian club in Osterley. It was more of a social event where some of the English press got to know the tourists. Mankad had originally been left out by the selectors and had gone to play in the Lancashire League. Soon after the tour began, however, there was a resolution to whatever the problem had been, and Mankad was back. The warm, friendly person whom Id called Vinoo bhai when playing deck quoits was the soul of India when they played England at Lords. The Test was also memorable for Godfrey Evans scoring 98 in one pre-lunch session, and for the young Peter May and Tom Graveney showing promise of greatness to come, but Mankad dominated. England commenced their second innings and when the captain, Vijay Hazare, called on Mankad to open the bowling, I remember him squatting near the bowling crease and rubbing the new ball in the grass to take the shine off.Fred Trueman, the rising English star, overwhelmed the tourists that summer, his speed intimidating two of their principal batsmen, Pankaj Roy and Polly Umrigar, into pathetic submission. By the end of the season Trueman had established himself as the English spearhead, soon to be partnered by the elegant Brian Statham. Over the coming seasons, it would be a thrill to see this muscular and stocky figure, his black hair bouncing, come tearing down one end like a bull. At the other was the slim, tall Statham, quiet, taking off like a predator in the forest, his feet doing a smooth shuffle and gathering pace before a little leap with the ball held high above his head, the right arm straigght and the left elbow aimed at the batsman, and then the final stride and full swing of the arm for delivery. Air Max 95 From China. On wickets that did not favour speed, the ball was handed to Laker, who licked his fingers at the start of his short run and kept a poker face as he imparted deceptive flight, and to his inseparable fellow spinner, the balding Tony Lock. After the Old Trafford Test against Australia in which Laker took 19 wickets, a television crew filmed him driving back to London, his face not betraying the slightest emotion, as if nothing had happened. He had fulfilled his duty, done his best for England and that was all; in those days there was none of the celebratory jumping for joy and hugging of team-mates each time a wicket fell.After finishing school, where I was the cricket captain for two seasons and played as opening batsman and wicketkeeper, I spent the second half of the 1950s at a university where I read and wrote poetry. Aged 24 in 1959, I graduated with a mediocre degree. But Id begun to publish poems and essays, and in that England of 1960, when coloured immigrants were discriminated against for all but menial service jobs, I had the curious distinction of being turned down for every job I applied for but being accepted as a poet. One Sunday, the Observer advertised a position for an assistant sports editor; although I was unqualified, I sent in an application composed in a literary style that caught the eye of Christopher Brasher, the sports editor. He had set the pace for Roger Bannisters record-breaking sub-four-minute mile and then won a gold medal as a steeplechaser at the 1956 Olympics. On reading my letter, Brasher called me for an interview and received me in his office with a warm, friendly welcome; he said that the assistant editors job was out of the question, but was there anything else I could do. I could think of nothing, but said, Your chief cricket correspondent [Alan Ross] is a poet, I am a poet, therefore, I can be a cricket correspondent. Brasher smiled, and said hed try me out. And soon came a Saturday when I was sent to Oxford for my first county cricket assignment.A year later, led by Ted Dexter, the MCC boarded a Pakistan International Airlines flight to Karachi for its 1961-62 tour of Pakistan and India, and I went with them as the Observers correspondent, sitting next to the England batsman Bob Barber in the window seat of a Boeing 707. It was not a memorable tour and was, in fact, entirely forgettable. Englands most successful batsman, Ken Barrington, of the flawless technique and zero style, accumulated runs as though they had to be stolen like a squirrel gathering nuts, and was tiresome to watch.Dexter, who was expected to thrill with his dazzling style, had the occasional brilliant moment but was largely disappointing. None of the bowlers made a mark, and the general performance of the two home teams in Test after Test required protracted patience from the spectators. These were the kind of boring and irrelevant Tests that created the climate for the popularity of one-day internationals. It was the end of a dull, waning period, the end of an era before the one that would colourfully speed up the game and impart a forced excitement.Back in London after the tour, I found that my reports in the Observer had made me a familiar name, and I received invitations to play in celebrity matches starring some famous retired cricketers who wrote weekly columns for the Sunday papers. I had the pleasure of keeping wicket to Learie Constantine, then in his 60s, who, some years before I was born, had been the earliest of the West Indians to have impressed the colonising power that one of its subjects was an equal match. A gleam in his eyes, he tossed the ball up and had the batsman and me mesmerised as we watched it float through the air, wondering which way it would turn. At the other end, I stood up to an even more cunning spinner, Richie Benaud. It felt strange fixing my eyes on him from behind the stumps. A decade or so earlier I had seen Benaud establish himself as a leading allrounder in a Test at Lords - his demeanour boyishly eager then - and here he was, no longer boyish but mature and relaxed and yet sharply athletic, confounding me with his disguised spin.In the same match another Australian, Jack Fingleton, was the principal batsman in our side. He was at the crease when a wicket fell and I was next man in. Naturally, as a young amateur, I was eager to impress my celebrated peers, and so carefully defended a couple of balls to get my eye in. That didnt please Fingleton, who, in his turn, was eager to demonstrate to the crowd that he was still the great batsman he had been in his youth. To his irritation, a chance single saw me facing the next over, leaving him again at the bowlers end. As the Cambridge mathematician GH Hardy once said, cricket is a game you play against 11 players of the opposing team and ten of your own. But Id qualify that by saying that cricket is also a game in which you sincerely applaud a brilliant stroke or a fine delivery regardless of who executes it. And so, with Fingleton beginning to fume that he was not getting the strike, I stepped forward and executed a perfect off drive. Fingleton came running down and we were about to cross when, turning his head, he saw the ball cross the boundary. Though naturally frustrated not to get the strike, he said, Good shot and walked back to the non-strikers end. Another great cricketer was in London that season, Frank Worrell, writing a weekly column for the Observer. That made him a colleague of the other reporters, whereupon one of them, Clement Freud, had the idea of arranging a match so that we could say - as I am doing now - that wed played with Frank Worrell.We played against a club in Brighton on a pitch that had seen much action earlier that summer, leaving it with more grainy dust than grass. Winning the toss, we batted first, with me opening the innings and Worrell at No. 3. I took guard and faced the first ball. It pitched just short of a length, a very ordinary delivery, its only virtue that it was on a straight line. I leaned forward, presenting the full face of a defensive bat. The ball did not bounce and skidded along the grainy dust, slipped past my bat, and hit the off stump.I pulled my bat back, stood up and began the dismal walk to the pavilion. Halfway there, I passed Worrell, gently shaking his head in commiseration as our eyes met. Bad luck, he said and walked on. He went on to score a hundred. ' ' '

LOS ANGELES -- Mikaela Mayer knew she was better than the high school burnout that she was in danger of becoming. Cody Allen Jersey .She had attended four schools in three years, repeatedly getting in trouble for fighting and bad grades. She was a 17-year-old occasional model with the self-awareness to realize she had no clear direction or future outside the San Fernando Valley.All I cared about was my friends, and going out and partying, and being a young, cool teenager, Mayer said. I was looking for something, but I had no idea what.One summer day, she realized something was calling her to the humble storefront kickboxing gym in an unassuming strip mall down the street from her divorced dads apartment. Instead of driving past it again, Mayer and a friend went inside.The first thing she asked the trainer was: Do you think Im too old to start competing?I was hungry for success in something at that time, because I wasnt doing well at anything, Mayer said. I was like, `I want to be good at something. Its always been inside me. Ive always had that fire. I didnt have anywhere to direct it.Almost nine years to the day after that wild child learned how to throw her first punch, Mayer will fight at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, joining gold medalist Claressa Shields as the only U.S. women boxers in Brazil.Mayer still doesnt know exactly why she first decided to punch people after a youth spent participating in everything from soccer to motocross to snowboarding. Nobody in her self-described family of hippies had been anywhere near a boxing gym.After her first workout, she knew three different ways to throw a proper punch. And she liked it.I poured all my energy into it, Mayer said. It wasnt ever just a part-time thing for me. From the day I walked into this gym, within two months, all I thought was, `I want to be the best female fighter in the world.Mayer took lessons in muay thai and kickboxing, but she dedicated herself to boxing after a back injury temporarily stopped her from throwing kicks. She became a Golden Gloves champion just a few years later -- and when the Olympics added a womens tournament in 2010, Mayer and her father, Mark, decided to chase medals.They heard about a boxing scholarship program at Northern Michigan University under revered amateur coach Al Mitchell, who has taught three U.S. Olympic teams. Before she had time to think, the LA native had been accepted to the program on Michigans Upper Peninsula.So I quit my job, said, `Later, to my boyfriend at the time, and hopped on a plane, Mayer said. I had never been to Michigan, let alone the U.P., which is a `nother thing on its own. I remember flying in there and seeing all the pine trees and 10 feet of snow and just thinking, `Where the hell am I?Mayer warmed to her cold new home, and Mitchell developed his first female pupil into a world-class fighter. Her bond with Mitchell and his fiancee became so tight that she had Mitchells initials tattooed on her right hand.The thing that makes Mikaela different is her commitment, Mitchell said. When she walked in here, I broke her down and rebuilt her. She never believed it was too hard, and she never gave up. She has toughness that got her this far, and now its getting her all the way to the Olympics. Its an incredible thing to do in that amount of time.A year after moving to Northern Michigan, Mayer fell just short of a spot on the first U.S. womens team, losing a decision to Queen Underwood at the 2012 trials. She only became more determined to catch the next wave in the evolution of her sport.Mayer made the Rio team last fall only after fending off a ferocious challenge over three qualifying fights from teenage prodigy Jajaira Gonzalez, a fellow LA-area native with a wealth of junior titles.The competition is so much tougher now than it was when I started, Mayer said.

Former Baylor All-American defensive end Shawn Oakman, the schools all-time sack leader, was indicted by a grand jury on charges of second-degree felony sexual assault in Waco, Texas, on Wednesday.Police in Waco arrested Oakman in April after a Baylor graduate student accused him of sexually assaulting her at his apartment on April 3. He was freed on $25,000 bond after his arrest.?The McLennan County District Attorneys office presented the case to a grand jury on Wednesday morning.Under Texas law, second-degree felony sexual assault typically carries a sentence of two to 20 years in state prison and a fine up to $10,000.Oakman, who was once considered a potential second- or third-round pick in this years NFL draft, went undrafted after his arrest.I think an indictment is just a prosecutors rubber stamp and requires a much lower burden of proof than one required for a conviction, which is beyond a reasonable doubt, said Michelle Tuegel, Oakmans attorney. We still have a lot of investigation and work to do in this case. Shawn maintains that the sex in this case was consensual.The woman, a Baylor graduate student, told police that Oakman forcibly removed her clothes, forced her onto his bed and then sexually assaulted her, according to a search warrant affidavit obtained by ESPN.According to the affidavit, the woman had a sexual assault examination performed at a medical center.The warrant said Oakman, who graduated from Baylor in December, said he had consensual sex with the woman.The woman told police that she met Oakman at a Waco nightclub April 3 and then returned to his duplex with him late that night. The woman toldd police that she left his duplex after she was sexually assaulted but left her underwear and an earring there. Corey Kluber Jersey. Police searched Oakmans duplex, according to the affidavit, and collected two comforters, a fitted sheet and a flat sheet from his bedroom.In a statement to ESPN, Oakmans attorney acknowledged that Oakman and the woman had a previous intimate relationship that included numerous consensual sexual encounters over a period of time before the alleged incident on April 3, 2016.We are looking forward to developing additional information about this case, Tuegel said.Oakman had 128 tackles and 17? sacks in three years at Baylor. He started his college career at Penn State but was dismissed in 2012 for allegedly stealing a sandwich and grabbing a female store clerks wrist.He is the third former Baylor player to be indicted for sexual assault in recent years.In August, defensive end Sam Ukwuachu was convicted of sexually assaulting a female Baylor athlete in October 2013 and was sentenced to 180 days in jail and 10 years of probation. Baylor reached a settlement with Ukwuachus victim in December after she filed a Title IX lawsuit against the school.In 2014, former Baylor defensive end Tevin Elliott was sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexually assaulting two female students in 2012. Two other women testified at his trial that he sexually assaulted them too. Earlier this year, one of Elliotts victims filed a federal lawsuit against Baylor for not protecting her Title IX rights.

Sri Lanka finally gave themselves a score to defend but it still wasnt enough for their first win over England of the tour. Comprar Jordan Baratas Online . Jason Roy made sure everyone knew they were on his manor with his second century of the series, and the second-highest score by an England batsman in ODIs, as the hosts cruised home with room to spare. These are strange times in what we must still refer to as the United Kingdom and Englands limited-overs revolution is also taking some getting used to.England players like to talk about confidence in terms of having your tyres pumped and Roy in this sort of form looks like a monster truck. Without his regular opening partner, Alex Hales, who was suffering from a back problem and did not bat, Roy marauded around the Kia Oval just like he has done on so many floodlit nights for Surrey. Memories of his slim returns in South Africa, where he scored 96 runs in five innings, have been subsumed by the avalanche against Sri Lanka, helping England to seal the ODIs 2-0 with one match to play.He is currently averaging 141.00 for the series, a figure which speaks for itself in stentorian tones. In one innings, his career average rose from 33.90 to a fat, round 40.00. Roys qualities had already been reaffirmed with his role in Englands rambunctious run to the World T20 final and, at the start of the tournament, he spoke of trying not to put himself under too much pressure to go out and whack it from ball one.Englands new ethos almost seems to demand as much from Roy, particularly as Hales often likes to take a bit more time to find his stride. But there is aggression, and there is aggression. Here, Roy was happy to putter along at a run a ball until the point at which he had made 24 off 25, then casually sauntered forwards and dumped Farveez Maharoof over long-on for the first of his three sixes. He had his moment of luck in Maharoofs next over, when a thin inside-edge missed leg stump by a whisker and flew away for four, and was soon into his pomp.England, aside from their sloppy performance at Trent Bridge, have located gears that Sri Lanka currently cannot find and Roy drove them towards a target that initially seemed likely to be testing as if it were a summery Sunday afternoon, rather than a cold, damp night in south London. The crowd drank in each of Roys milestones as happily as another beer from the bar but, just as he seemed set to eclipse Robin Smiths 167 - made during a 55-over game back in 1993 - he was dismissed aiming a tired swipe at Nuwan Pradeeps slower ball. His evident frustration at not finishing off the job bodes well for England.Roys hundred, the fastest of his three in ODIs, came off just 74 balls and a couple of years ago that would have been second only to Kevin Pietersen - a player Roy has been compared to (not least because of his Durban birthplace). It is a mark of how Englands game has moved at light speed that it now sits joint-ninth in the list.Im pretty happy with where Ive got to, he said. A lot of hard work has gone into it and to see the rewards is incredibly special, at my home ground, in a big game, to win a series... Im pretty stoked.England have kept faith in Surreys punkish young opener and he has begun to play like a king. Sri Lanka have a prince of their own in the ranks and on another night there would have been much heralding of Kusal Mendis. Englands rapid pursuit of their target made previous feats appear less dizzying but could not fully erase the impression of Mendis buckling his swash to fight the odds and the drizzle and give Sri Lankans something to smile about.Mendis is on the dinky side but he packs a punch. Were he from South America, he would doubtless be called la Pulga Atomica - the Atomic Flea, as Leo Messi is sometimes known. He struck seven fours in his first 18 balls, wresting back any early initiative England thought they had won from achieving a run-out in the second over, and setting the platform for their highest total of the series.At the start of the tour, Kumar Sangakkara had mentioned the former Schoolboy Cricket of the Year as a future star and Mendis will return home with a report card to make his family proud. His maiden Test half-century was the sole bright spot during Sri Lankas hammering at Headingley and he added a fifty on ODI debut in Dublin a few weeks later, before following up with another against England in Bristol.This was the first time he had pushed his score on. In his sixth ODI, it was Mendis highest knock in any form of white-ball cricket, so he could be forgiven for not quite knowing the route to a century. But he gave the Sri Lanka innings its impetus, dragging Danuska Gunathilaka along to a first fifty of the series in his wake and allowing Dinesh Chandimal and Angelo Mathews to start shovelling coal in the engine room.It is worth recording what a thoroughly miserable day this was on which to watch or play cricket. A sold-out Kia Oval shivered in the drizzle through the first half of Sri Lankas innings but returned from cover when the rain finally relented in the late afternoon. This was set to the be the highest attendance for a match at the ground in modern times, after the expansion of the Peter May stand, and in more clement conditions it would almost certainly have challenged the match between England and New Zealand here last year, which aggregated 763 runs - the most for an ODI in this country.Grey clouds scudded above the ground throughout, as the right little, tight little island of Thomas Dibdins imagination lay swaddled in murky weather and the fear of treachery. Above the pavilion, a union flag fluttered above a smaller St Georges cross. After Roys feat, the rain soon returned but this snug little island perhaps - strangely - felt just a little more secure.

BOSTON -- A human rights group is hoping to persuade travelers from Boston and other cities to avoid flying on Qatars state-owned airline when going to the Middle East as international attention focuses on the tiny country leading up to its hosting of the 2022 World Cup.The Washington-based Alliance for Workers Against Repression Everywhere is stepping up its push for a boycott of Qatar Airways because of what it alleges are human rights violations by the country and the airline.Qatar Airways is one of the fastest-growing airlines in the world, known for its luxury service and fleet of new aircraft. This year it launched service from several major U.S. cities, including Boston, Atlanta and Los Angeles. In those cities, AWARE ran a public campaign using billboard ads, op-ed pieces and social media to urge travelers to boycott the airline.The group cites the countrys poor record on womens rights and gay rights and reports of poor working conditions for a large population of migrant workers who are building stadiums, roads, hotels and other infrastructure in Qatar as the country gets ready to host soccers World Cup. An Amnesty International report this year said migrant workers reported living in squalid conditions, having their payments withheld for months and having their passports confiscated.Progressive activist Mike Lux, a political consultant who served on the Barack Obama-Joe Biden presidential transition team and is the main organizer of the boycott, said human rights groups have found that Qatar Airlines keeps tight control over its employees, putting them in company-owned housing and not letting them leave these companny towns. Air Jordan Retro España. . Lux said the airline also has a record of discriminating against women, firing workers who get married, become pregnant or are overweight.Mostly what we want travelers to know is that this airline and the country that backs it are built on the exploitation of workers, Lux said. We want folks to understand that there are severe human rights violations in Qatar and part of the human rights violations are done by the airline itself and more of them are done by the country that owns the airlines and controls it.Qatar Airways declined to comment on the boycott on Wednesday. But in an interview with Global Atlanta in June, the airlines senior vice president in charge of customer experience, Rossen Dimitrov, called the allegations made by AWARE patently false.Qatar Airways respects the laws of every country it serves and does not discriminate on the basis of gender, sexuality, religion or nationality, Dimitrov said.He said the airline offers pay, housing, global medical coverage and other benefits that result in a highly desirable career opportunity.This week, Qatar said it was introducing long-expected reforms to policies governing its foreign-labor force. The changes still require workers to get clearance from their bosses before leaving the country.Qatar government officials said the reforms will abolish the kafala sponsorship system binding workers to their employers. Human rights activists say the reforms continue to leave workers open to exploitation by unscrupulous employers. ' ' '

With 700 plus players set to represent 28 teams in the 2016-17 Ranji Trophy, the national selectors will have their task cut out to identity a group of back-ups to be in line with coach Anil Kumbles vision. Discount Jordan Shoes . ESPNcricinfo looks at five players who could have a breakthrough season.Kuldeep YadavKuldeep first rose to prominence at the 2014 Under-19 World Cup with his left-arm wristspin, to finish as the joint second-highest wicket-taker in the tournament. One of few positives in a disappointing campaign, Kuldeep was expected to become a regular in Uttar Pradeshs first-class set-up almost immediately. But two seasons on, opportunities continue to remain elusive, partly because conditions up north, where UP have played a bulk of their matches. The presence of Piyush Chawla, the captain and legspinner, has also somewhat stunted his progress. But his performances at IPL 2016, where he delivered at key moments for Kolkata Knight Riders, and his start to the season with the Duleep Trophy - he picked up 17 wickets in three matches - have resulted in some hope. With Anil Kumble impressing on the need to have a pool of match-ready back-ups, Kuldeeps performances could be closely monitored should he earn the state selectors nod.Mayank AgarwalIts strange that Im recognised as a Delhi Daredevils batsman than Karnataka opener, Mayank Agarwal said last year after questions were raised over his batting style: more suited to the shorter formats. Those doubts may have been put on the back burner for the time being though. Agarwal came into his own during the season-opening Duleep Trophy, where he struck 420 runs in five innings, including a career-best 161.That he featured in just 19 first-class games since his debut in November 2013 was largely due to Karnatakas top-heavy batting line-up. The presence of KL Rahul and Robin Uthappa coupled with Agarwals inability to build on starts led to him being left out at various stages during Karnatakas treble-winning run in 2014 and 2015. With Rahul likely to slot back in to Indias Test line-up for the England series once he recovers from a hamstring injury, and Manish Pandey and Karun Nair in the mix for a middle-order berth, Agarwal will be one of the batting lynchpins. Having already represented India A in the limited-overs tri-series last year against Australia and South Africa, where he was the highest run-getter, consistent scores for Karnataka could further help him break into the national team.Shreyas IyerIf performances are the criterion for selection, Shreyas Iyer has done most things asked of him in his first two Ranji Trophy seasons. He followed up his debut season, where he made 809 runs, to become the highest run-getter last season (1321 runs), with four centuries, including a one from a dire situation in the final against Saurashtra in Pune. Only VVS Laxmans tally of 1415 runs for Hyderabad in 1999-2000 is higher than Iyers. In his innings of 117 in the final, he also went past the Mumbai record for most runs in a season, held by Wasim Jaffer (1260 runs in 2008-09). Iyer scored those runs at an average of 73.78 and strike rate of 92.70. The impressive performances have earned him a call-up to the India A team. Another impressive Ranji Trophy season could make it hard for the selectors to ignore him.Jayant YadavThe tall offspinner from Haryana has been on the radar since 2014, and is currently part of Indias Test squad for the home series against New Zealand. That he finds himself on the fringes was largely due to his performances for India A in Australia, where he picked seven wickets in two outings. Prior to that, he was part of Indias squad for the limited-overs series in Zimbabwe.Swinging conditions in Lahli have somewhat prevented him from bowling long spells, but he has used those opportunities to channelise his batting too - his career best of 211 not out in his second first-class season against Karnataka in 2012 being an indication of his potential. His threat with the ball has surfaced when Haryana have played away. With matches set to be played at neutral venues this season, Jayant has an opportunity to further boost his claim.He first rose to prominence in 2014-15, when he began the season with a six-for and took 13 wickets against Saurashtra in Rajkot. He was rewarded with selection for the India A squad for the home series against South Africa A and Bangladesh A last year. Jayant earned a berth in the India A squad for the tour of Australia in July-August this year after his season-ending performance in March; he claimed eight wickets for Rest of India against Mumbai in the Irani Cup, and remained unbeaten on 19 when his side completed their historic chase of 480.Nathu SinghThe Rajasthan pace bowler is widely regarded as one of the fastest in India today, but apprehensions have been raised about him going a similar way to Munaf Patel. Perhaps this is why his second full first-class season could be crucial to his development. He impressed in the Duleep Trophy, picking up eight wickets including a six-wicket haul in the opener. The manner in which he hustled the batsmen for pace and swung the ball late earned praise from selectors and opposition captains. He was complimented for the same qualities when he played for the Board Presidents XI in a tour game against South Africa in Mumbai last year. He will be key to Rajasthans bowling fortunes this season along with captain Pankaj Singh. Cheap Real Jordans .

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- World Cup champion Spain routed the Pacific islanders from Tahiti 10-0 on Thursday at the Confederations Cup -- a result that wasnt as bad as some had suggested beforehand. Cheap Asics Shoes . Tahiti coach Eddy Etaeta said he feared Spain might get as many as 20 goals. Still, the winning margin was the largest in a Confederations Cup match. The previous record margin for the World Cup test-run tournament was six, when Brazil beat Saudi Arabia 8-2 in 1999 and when Brazil beat Australia 6-0 in 1997. Fernando Torres, who missed a penalty late in the match, scored four goals. David Villa added three goals, David Silva two and Juan Mata one. Tahiti was the crowd favourite at the Maracana stadium with Brazilians wildly cheering the underdogs and jeering Spain. When Spanish midfielder Mata tried to score with a bicycle kick with the score at 4-0, the effort was met with loud booing. "They (Brazilians) are always on the side of the underdog, meaning Tahiti," Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque said. "I believe the fans respected the show and enjoyed the match." Torres miss from a penalty late also drew wild cheers. The ball bounded off the crossbar and Tahiti keeper Mikael Roche raised his hands in celebration -- as if hed stopped it. The match had the tone of a practice game -- or an exhibition. Even before it began, the outcome was never in doubt. The spirit was set by Tahiti coach Eddy Etaeta, who put a flower lei around the neck of Spanish coach Vicente del Bosque. Etaeta, who called playing Spain a "Christmas present," warned before the match that Spain might score 15 or 20 goals. "We lost 10-0 but we won the hearts of the Brazilian public. So obrigado, obrigados a tudos," he said after the game, saying Thank You everyone in Portuguese. Etaeta said it was frustrating that his team was now better known in Brazil than at home. Tahitian players also draped trinkets around the neck of the Spanish players just before the start, another gesture of friendship and respect. Tahiti attacked from the start and was just 1-0 down after 15 minutes, making light of the gulf between the world champions and a team made up of amateurs who hold down day jobs. But that did not last long, with Spain leading 4-0 at the break. The match was lopsided, but there have been worse. The Tahitians tired in the second half and only found their way into the Spanish half a handful of times. Spain added six and could easily have added plenty more. Despite letting in 10, Roche made several fine saves to the joy of the Brazilian crowd. "They would have loved to have scored one single goal," Etaeta said. "It didnt happen, theres something missing really. Theyre a bit disappointed." The match was lopsided, but there have been worse. The largest margin of victory in a FIFA match came in 2001, when Australia beat American Samoa 31-0 in Oceania qualifying for the World Cup. In the World Cup, the record is nine, set three times. Hungary beat South Korea 9-0 in 1954, Yugoslavia routed Zaire 9-0 in 1974 and Hungary defeated El Salvador 10-1 in 1982. The biggest rout in soccer history happened in 2002 when Stade Olympique de lEmyrne scored 149 own-goals in a match against AS Adema in Madagascar in protest of what it claimed was partial refereeing.

LAC DE PAYOLLE, France -- Briton Steve Cummings cast aside all his disappointment for missing out on selection for the Olympic Games with a solo performance that smacked of panache to win the first mountain stage of the Tour de France on Friday. Authentic Shoes Wholesale .Cummings (Dimension Data), 35, won the 162.5-kilometer seventh stage, from LIsle Jourdain to Lac de Payolle in the Pyrénées, by 1 minute, 4 seconds ahead of both South Africas Daryl Impey (Orica-BikeExchange) and Spaniard Danny Navarro (Cofidis), who finished at the same time. Then came Italian Vincenzo (Astana) in fourth at 1:58, Belgian race leader Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) in fifth at 2:57 and Spaniard Luis Angel Mate (Cofidis) in sixth at 4:29. Mate was first in a peloton that had been controversially stopped after the inflatable one kilometre to go arch collapsed moments before they passed under; the arch fell on Briton Adam Yates (Orica-BikeExhange), who had attacked the peloton to try to claim the young riders white jersey.A spectator came too close to the structure and, with his belt, he caught it on the cable, Philippe Sudres of Amaury Sport Organisation, the Tour de France organizer, told Cyclingnews. The cable powered the generator that powered the arch, the inflatable. We know that from a witness who was there and who talked to the police. We will reinforce the security around the structure so that this doesnt happen again. In maybe 10 to 15 years, something like this has never happened. It was an accident, not someone looking to break it.With his chin bloodied, Yates finished behind the peloton that was later given the same time -- with Yates included -- and taken with three kilometres to go. Yates needed stitches to his chin and later said he had also hurt his shoulder, wrists and sustained banged up knee.But the Brit still had cause for celebration. The race jury later awarded him the white jersey because he was ahead of the best young riders leader, Frenchman Julian Alaphilippe, by more than his six-second deficit at the three kilometres to go mark. The jersey will be presented to him before Saturdays Stage 8, 184km from Pau to Bagnères de Luchon in the Pyrénées, which includes five categorized mountains and a downhill finish.Fridays stage saw Van Avermaet hold on to his yellow jersey for Saturday, in which he will go into the second mountain stage with an extended overall lead of 5:50 on Yates, who is now second overall, and 5:51 on Alaphilippe, who has dropped a place. But the stage also stood as a reminder of how extreme and left field the challenges of racing in a Tour can be.Steve Cummings: The Tour is the biggest race on earthCummings victory was superbly executed and deserving of the laurels that came, no matter the significance of it after he was snubbed by British selectors for Rio. Initially bitter -- especially after winning four World Tour races in 12 months (now five) -- he called for the sacking of British coach Rod Ellingworth, also the performance coach of the British Sky team from which four of the five riders picked are from: Chris Froome, Geraint Thomas, Ian Stannard and Peter Kennaugh. The fifth rider picked was Yates, whose team is Australian.I think we need a new coach because of a conflict of interest, Cummings said to on July 1. Thats my opinion and maybe Ill never ride for GB again, but if thats the way it is, then thats the way it is. If you win the races Ive won this year, in the way Ive won them, and you dont get picked then you might as well say what you think.However, Cummings said he has moved on after losing an appeal following Fridays win in a stage in which he was one of a 29-strong rider breakaway that formed early. He broke away from a diminished group with 27km to go, then led all the way up to the summit of the first category Col dAspin and down seven kilometers to the finish. The Olympics is the Olympics, he said when asked if the Rio snubbing motivated him. They made the selection, so I am over it. As an athlete you just deal with disappointment.You just move on to the next thing. It was a blessing in disguise having the Tour de France because this is the biggest show, the biggest race on earth. It is much bigger than any Olympic Games. I am just delighted the team gave me the opportunity and believed in the strategy.Cummings, a professional since 2005 and whose first of the grand tour stage wins was in the 2012 Vuelta a Espa?a, is enjoying his best season with a stage win in each of the Tirreno-Adriatico, Vuelta al Pais Vasco and Critérium du Dauphiné races before the Tour. However, his Stage 14 win to Mende in last years Tour was a major turning point for him.That was the dream last year, and when you reach for a while after it, honestly, I didnt know what I was going to do. I was like, What do I do now? What do I? I was lost after it for months. Then when I understood what it was I did; I wanted to do it again. It also gave me the confidence to believe in myself. It took me ages to watch it. Even now when I watch it, I dont like to watch it because it makes me all funny. But I have to watch it because it gives me the confidence of what I can do. I am not the most confident person. Now I have a little video collage that I can watch when I am not feeling so good. You think, Yeah, well, now I can do it. I just have to go.Adam Yates: I had a millisecond to react Meanwhile, after surviving the collapse of the arch, Yates will feel sore and tight when he resumes racing on Saturday.I have a cut shoulder, he said. My wrist and knee are banged up, but Im OK.He was admirably stoic about his misfortune though, especially considering the circumstances that could have been far worse had the arch collapsed on the entire peloton. Im beyond disappointed really. Theres not much you can do. At one kilometer [to go], when it came down on me, I had no time to react, he told media at the stage finish. At the end of the day, it was good that it was just me on my own. If the peloton was there in a sprint stage -- at 70 to 80 kilometers per hour -- it wouldve been worse. I had a millisecond to react, thats not long enough to pull the brakes, the barrier came down. I hit it, I had no time to react or hit the brakes.Yates, who found himself off the front of the peloton with Irishman Dan Martin (Etixx-QuickStep) and Australian Richie Porte (BMC) just before the top of the Col dAspin, sped away on the seven-kilometer descent to the finish. He admitted he took some risks. At the top of the climb, I followed Dan Martin when he attacked. I took risk on the descent to get the white jersey. I had five or seven seconds, but thats it. My race [was] finished.Yates, racing his second Tour and third year as a professional, was even able to joke a little about his fate, saying: Im OK. I think I have four stitches. I think I crash a lot on my chin. In [the 2014 Clasica] San Sebastian I had eight stitches, then the time before seven stitches -- quite a lot of crashes on my chin, but Im OK. You get on with it.

Wilson hit Schenn from behind during Tuesday nights game in Philadelphia, earning a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct. He has a phone hearing with the department of player safety, which limits any potential suspension to five or fewer games. . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. Ajinkya Rahanes plate is fairly full in Test cricket. At No. 5, he has often been the leader of an Indian counterattack. In the field, he is the first-choice at first slip for the spinners. Since the away series against West Indies in 2016, he has been vice-captain. One more responsibility has fallen on his shoulders ahead of the five Tests against England at home: helping India make optimum use of the Decision Review System, especially considering the hosts will be using it for the first time in a Test series since 2011, whereas England have rarely ever played without it.It is a completely new concept for all of us, Rahane said. Well have to wait and see about the DRS, but yes, weve been discussing about this from the last series and we had some plan. Wicketkeeper is obviously very important and as a slip fielder, you have that role to convey that message to the captain and also bowler.As a batsman, you are completely involved in the game, you have to see where the ball is going and you have to convey that message to your partner. You have to be sure all the time.When asked if DRS might be a key influence on the outcome of the series, Rahane said: Yes, but that comes later on, We will spend some time explaining about DRS, how it works and how we should approach it. But the main focus is to play good cricket here. DRS obviously comes later on.We want to dominate this series, weve been playing some very good cricket in the last one, one-and-a-half years. So important to start well here in Rajkot and continue that momentum into the series.The BCCI had been, for a long time, reluctant to use DRS beecause it felt the system could not provide 100% accuracy. Shoes From China Online. MS Dhoni had previously wondered if the system existed to reach the correct decision or if it was there to protect the on-field umpires call. With time, however, the technology has improved which in turn has helped change the teams view. Since their visit to Bangladesh in 2015, Virat Kohlis first tour as full-time Test captain, India have spoken about how they were discussing the implementation of DRS. Anil Kumbles inputs must have helped - the current India coach is also chairman of the ICCs cricket committee, which has been working towards eradicating the possibility of faults in the system.In October, ICC general manager Geoff Allardice made a presentation to the BCCI about the improvements that have been made over the years. The HawkEye cameras that were used for ball-tracking in the 2011 World Cup in India recorded 50-75 frames per second. The ones in this series can record 340 frames per second. This means there is more data to calculate the predicted path of the ball - say, after it hits the pad in case of lbw decisions - and therefore less chance of error. Also with respect to the lbw protocol, the ICC has tweaked the rule to effectively make the stumps larger and as such there is the possibility that not-out calls made on the field have a high chance of being overturned by the third umpire.The BCCI is yet to reach a decision on whether it will continue using DRS after the England series.

OTTAWA, Ontario -- Star Canadian pole vaulter Shawn Barber tested positive for cocaine before the Rio Olympics following a tryst with a woman he met on Craigslist. Nike Vapormax Wholesale China .The 2015 world champion was permitted to compete in Brazil after it was determined he inadvertently ingested trace amounts of the banned substance through kissing. Barber called the positive test a complete shock.The Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada made its decision Aug. 11, four days before Barber competed in Rio de Janeiro, where he finished 10th. The report wasnt released until Thursday.It was quite an ordeal going into the Olympics, but everything worked out the way it was supposed to, Barber said during a conference call.The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport proposed a four-year competition ban. Barber wasnt suspended but was stripped of his 2016 national title.This has been a learning experience for Shawn, Athletics Canada, the nations governing track and field body, said in a statement. He is a young athlete learning how to compete on the field of play, and prepare away from it.According to the report, Barber used cocaine July 8, the night before he won the Canadian title in Edmonton, Alberta. He had posted in the casual encounter section of Craigslist for a professional person to engage in a sexual rendezvous as a way to relieve stress. He specified he wanted a woman who was drug- and disease-free, the report said.The woman, referred to as W in the report, testified that she consumed cocaine before she met Barber and then again in the bathroom of his hotel room. She said at his hearing he could not have known shed used the drug, and she felt horrible about what happened.The woman also said she had consumed a 26-ounce bottle of vodka that night and had four or five drinks before meeting Barber. She said he declined her offer of a drink. The two did not exchange money, the report said.Arbitrator Ross Dumoulin wrote in his decision that the encounter was a pre-meditated effort by Barber to have a sex with a stranger in a hotel room. Exercising utmost caution would require him to have made inquiries to satisfy himself that there was no cocaine involved, he added.Barber was a strong hope for a medal at the Rio Olympics after winning the 2015 world title in Beijing. But he struggled in the rainy conditions in Rio.Last fall, Barbers father, George, was banned by Athletics Canada. George Barber had acted as Shawns coach until the governing body learned of his 2007 criminal conviction on charges of having sex with a student while employed at a U.S. high school.

DENVER -- The Los Angeles Rams locked up Tavon Austin to a four-year extension that will keep the dynamic wide receiver with them through the 2021 season, the team announced Saturday, just before its preseason game against the?Denver Broncos.A source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that the deal is worth $42 million, including $30 million guaranteed, and contains incentives that could elevate its value to $52 million.?The deal will be tacked on to Austins rookie contract, which extends through 2017.Im glad I feel wanted, Austin said after the Rams 17-9 loss. And I want to be here. Thats the main thing. Im going to keep on going, day in and day out, be the same Tavon Austin. The same one. Im really thankful.Austin, the eighth overall selection in the 2013 draft, significantly increased his production in 2015. A 5-foot-8, 176-pound receiver, he set career highs in receptions (52), yards from scrimmage (907) and touchdowns (10), prompting the Rams to pick up his fifth-year option for 2017 in May.Now Austin, 25, will be paid like a true No. 1 receiver.Austins extension carries an average annual value of $10.5 million, the 12th highest at his position, behind A.J.

He can impact games as a passer, runner and punt returner, and the Rams seemingly wanted to secure him as the No. 1 target for rookie quarterback?Jared Goff.Austins role is expected to increase this season, in the passing game and out of the backfield, under offensive coordinator Rob Boras and new passing game coordinator Mike Groh. His deal was finalized on Saturday morning. And prior to that nights game, Austin found Rams owner Stan Kroenke, who has owned a multitude of sports franchises in the city.I hugged him, Austin said. I told him, Thank you. He helped me and my family out. Thats the God-honest truth. He told me I deserve it. I told him Im going to be a hundred percent, day in and day out. Same person. ' ' '

SEATTLE -- Two years have passed since the Seattle Seahawks gave up on their experiment. Clearance Nike Free Running Shoes .Percy Harvin was the subject of Seattles trial, seeing if one of the most dynamic talents in the NFL could mesh and supplement the structure of the Seahawks system.The results of the Harvin experience were so muddled and so incomplete that two years after Harvin was traded midseason from Seattle to the New York Jets, its still difficult to provide a definition to his time with the Seahawks.Yes, he did have a part in the Seahawks winning their only Super Bowl title. Yes, he caused internal strife that eventually led to his departure from Seattle.But ask those who shared the locker room with Harvin during his time in Seattle and as he prepares for an unexpected NFL return with the Buffalo Bills visiting the Seahawks on Monday night, and there is no criticism of Harvins time in the Pacific Northwest.I loved him when he was here. I loved him as a person and as a teammate, Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. Im excited that hes back on the field.Of course its this week that Harvin is coming out of retirement. The story line is just too good. With Buffalo thinned at wide receiver because of injuries, Harvin was the option turned to by the Bills for additional depth.Whether he is active and how much he plays on Monday night is still to be determined, although Buffalo coach Rex Ryan sounded confident that Harvin would play against the Seahawks.He looks good out there, Ryan said. You know the conditioning part of it and doing the football-specific things, obviously, theyre not to where he would be if he was here the whole time. But I think he can help us.Harvin has led a nomadic NFL existence since he was traded from Minnesota to Seattle before the 2013 season. He spent all of 1+ seasons in Seattle, appeared in six regular- season games and scored just one touchdown.He had a pair of locker room incidents that never came to light until after he was traded in the middle of the 2014 season, and was such a bad fit for Seattles offense the best option was a trade to the Jets.When he was here, we used to say he was like the Bugatti, you just bring it out on game day, Seattle defensive end Cliff Avril said. So its kind of the same thing. They went and got a Bugatti, I guess.But for all the unfulfilled potential of what Harvins tenure in Seattle ended up being, hell forever hold some reverence for his time with the Seahawks because of his Super Bowl performance that included a 87-yard kickoff return touchdown to open the second half.Great Super Bowl, phenomenal effect he had on us then, Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. We just had to make an adjustment on the roster and we did it. It was just something we had to do football-wise.Harvins biggest issue in recent years has been injuries, a trend that started when he needed hip surgery before ever playing a game with the Seahawks.Last season with Buffalo, Harvin was limited to 19 catches for 218 yards and one touchdown before undergoing right knee surgery in January.The Bills need whatever help they can get at receiver. Top threat Sammy Watkins will miss at least another two weeks with a left foot injury. No. 2 receiver Robert Woods is playing despite aggravating an injury to his right foot. On the bright side, speedster Marquise Goodwin has been cleared to return since missing one game with a concussion.Harvin said theres no grudge toward how things went in Seattle.Im just a player who likes to play at the level I expect of myself, and the level that my peers expect me to play at, Harvin said.Ive never been a guy to hold on to grudges, to want to get back at anybody. I keep trying to tell everybody I have lot of good relationships still with the Seattle guys over there, with the player personnel, with the strength coach. Man, he still sends me emails on a daily basis.Theres still a lot of love there no matter what the perception of what things went on there. They still have love for me. I have love for them. We won a Super Bowl together. So its love over here.---AP Sports Writer John Wawrow contributed to this report.---For more NFL coverage: and Wholesale Nike Free .C. -- Al Jefferson joked that he feels he can score from anywhere on the court.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was fined $24,309 for unsportsmanlike conduct Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings, a source told ESPN.Beckham was flagged for taunting cornerback Xavier Rhodes after he was hit late in the second quarter. Beckham appeared to say something to Rhodes and the official after the play. As a repeat offender, he received the maximum fine for the offense.The penalty was Beckhams sixth for unsportsmanlike conduct, unnecessary roughness or taunting since entering the league in 2014. It was the third time in four games this season he was fined for his on-field behavior.In Week 1, Beckham was involved in a group celebration that cost him $12,154.

The most recent fine brings his total to $72,463 through four weeks this season.After the 24-10 loss, Beckham said he wasnt happy with the flag.I just have to understand if I sneeze the wrong way, it will be a flag, he said. It will be a fine. If I tie my shoes the wrong way, it might be a fine or a flag. It is what it is. You have to understand that. As tough as it is to undderstand that for a 23-year-old who has been blessed with a lot that God has given to me -- an amazing amount of ability and amazing amount of everything -- it seems like its all working against you.

Beckham caught three passes for 23 yards in the loss.But he conceded on Thursday he wasnt happy with his on-field behavior. Beckham has been fined more than $150,000 since entering the league.I think its gotten to a point where I just want to compete, Beckham said. None of the extra stuff -- I just want to compete. That never seems to be the case. You just keep smiling. Itll be straight. Itll all work itself out. Well start winning some games and help pick up this offense.The thing that kills me is that I remember when I was a kid. I remember when I looked up to someone and watched them, emulated them, he said. What Im doing is not something I would want a 6-year-old boy to be out there and learn from. Honestly, as funny as it sounds, thats really all I care about. ' ' '

They have brilliant individuals, are really well coached, so we are really happy with the performance, but Im sure when we wake up (on Sunday) morning we know we have to go over there in a weeks time. We wont get carried away.It will be a tough challenge (next Saturday). We are under no illusions. Interesting things happen if you look at Glasgow going away to Racing 92 (on Saturday) and winning there.

There were some tactical and some little technical errors. Cheap Air Max For Sale. We needed a lot of intensity and commitment to win the game.Leicester director of rugby Richard Cockerill insisted his team can reverse the result at Welford Road in round four.Im disappointed with the performance, full stop - there is no getting away from that, he said.The reality, and it starts with me, is that the performance was not acceptable - 38-0 is not where we want to be.We have some important players missing, but that is no excuse for where the performance was (on Saturday).The one good point is that we bring Munster to Welford Road next week. We have it all to do. We have to salvage some pride from where we were this evening because our two away games in this pool so far have been pretty disastrous for us.We can turn it around. We have to go back and deal with it on Monday. We have to be very honest with ourselves and make sure we win those physical battles or at least match them in the physical battles.Munster played exceptionally well. All credit to them - no issues on that. They were very good - good players, well coached. They played very well and deserved the win. The one thing we have controlled very well over the past six weeks is the territory and field position, and we didnt control it well (on Saturday night).We put ourselves under pressure, we kicked poorly and invited Munster to run at us. We got punished, whether that is through penalties in the first instance. You keep letting sides such as Munster, who are quality, run at you in the first half of the field, you are going to get penalised, get blokes sent to the bin or concede tries, which is exactly what we did.

MILAN -- Silvio Gazzaniga, the sculptor who designed the World Cup trophy, has died. He was 95.Gazzanigas son, Giorgio, said his father passed away in his sleep at home in Milan.He just didnt wake up this morning. It was a peaceful death, Giorgio Gazzaniga told The Associated Press on Monday, adding that his father had been in the hospital recently for a series of minor ailments.Silvio Gazzaniga designed and created the World Cup trophy in 1971 after Brazil retained the right to keep the Jules Rimet trophy by winning its third World Cup in 1970.The World Cup is a mythic object for the players and for all football lovers, FIFA President Gianni Infantino said. We will be eternally grateful. I express my condolences by joining the pain of the family.The 18-carat solid gold trophy weighs approximately six kilograms (13 pounds). It depicts a moment of joy: two players celebrating with their arms outstretched and a globe resting on the backs of their shoulders.The lines spring out from the base, rising in spirals, stretching out to receive the world, Silvio Gazzaniga once said, according to FIFAs website. From the remarkable dynamic tensions of the compact body of the sculpture rise the figures of two athletes at the stirring moment of victory.FIFA received 53 proposals from seven different countries for a new trophy, before optiing for Gazzanigas design. Cheap Nike Air Force 1. I designed it to reward heroism, Silvio Gazzaniga said in a 2002 interview with The Associated Press. But not superhuman heroism. Its not a conventional cup.Giorgio Gazzaniga said that his father knew his design couldnt be understood on paper, so he brought a plaster model to show FIFA.The jury understood right away that it was a very photogenic cup, Giorgio Gazzaniga said. Its easy to lift and beautiful when raised. He created a universal trophy.The FIFA contest stipulated that the winner would not hold the rights to his work and so Silvio Gazzaniga never profited directly from images of the World Cup trophy.But as compensation he gained more work on other cups, his son said. He became Mr. Cups.Silvio Gazzaniga also designed the UEFA Cup, European Super Cup and many other international trophies.But hell be remembered above all for the World Cup.Cafu, who captained Brazil to the 2002 World Cup title, tweeted, Today I think for Silvio Gazzaniga, this man designed the trophy which gave my proudest moment in sport. RIP.Silvio Gazzaniga leaves behind two children, along with grandchildren and great grandchildren.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: ' ' '

The No. Nike Vapormax En Oferta . 9 Washington Huskies were dominant through an easy non-conference schedule. They will be tested more rigorously as their Pac-12 season begins this weekend.Well find out quickly what we have, Washington coach Chris Petersen said.After home victories over Rutgers, Idaho and Portland State, the Huskies face a road challenge Saturday in Tucson against Arizona, which is 2-1. The game starts at 10:30 p.m. ET at Arizona Stadium.Tougher conference tests await -- the Huskies host No. 7 Stanford and then play at Oregon after this -- but the Wildcats have been known to pull off some big upsets. Arizona is 7-5 at home against top-10 teams since 2005, and it has a win over a top-10 team in each of coach Rich Rodriguezs first four seasons.When you get into your league ... I dont want to say it means more, but it means more, Petersen said.I think everybody plays pretty hard anyway, but everybody plays a little bit harder and all those type of things. And then you factor in that were going away, night game, first league game -- I know what the energy will be like in that stadium. That will feel completely different to us.Washington is on a six-game winning streak, dating to last season, having scored more than 40 points in each game.Sophomore quarterback Jake Browning has thrown nine touchdown passes in the past two games and leads the nation in passing efficiency with a rating of 206.9.I was impressed with him last year, but you can just see hes more comfortable with everything theyre doing, Rodriguez said. Hes almost spot-on in every decision, which, for a second-year player, is pretty remarkable.Washingtons first-string defense hasnt allowed a touchdown this season, and the Huskies rank 15th nationally in total defense, allowing 269.3 yards per game. Rodriguez said NFL scouts tell him Washington has at least seven players on defense who will end up playing on ranks three Huskies among the top 100 prospects for 2017 -- safety Budda Baker (No. 34), cornerback Sidney Jones (No. 47) and linebacker Azeem Victor (No. 95).Arizonas offense likely will counter with a different starting backfield combination than it had at the start of the season.Sophomore quarterback Brandon Dawkins has started the past two games in place of injured Anu Solomon, passing for 200 yards and running for 100 in both victories over Grambling State and Hawaii. The status of Solomon (knee) wasnt known early in the week, but Dawkins seems likely to start again. He is a superior running threat, while Solomon, a two-year starter, has more experience.The thing he did well (against Hawaii) was his decision-making was good, Rodriguez said of Dawkins. His eyes were in the right spot. He was decisive in all of his actions, and I think that is why he gained some confidence as the game went on.Arizona starting tailback Nick Wilson spent the second half Saturday night with his left foot in a boot, so he likely will be replaced by J.J. Taylor, a 5-foot-6, 170-pound true freshman. Taylor dazzled with 18 carries for 168 yards against Hawaii, displaying a variety of spin moves and quick cuts.He has probably learned as quickly as any true freshman I have ever had, and I have had some really good ones throughout the years, said Rodriguez, who compared Taylors style to that of Noel Devine, one of his former West Virginia backs. Hes not the biggest guy, but he has good strength and hes a very competitive person.Arizonas defense under first-year coordinator Marcel Yates -- a former assistant under Petersen at Boise State -- is a work in progress. The Wildcats allowed second-half touchdown drives of 13, 10 and 12 plays against Hawaii.Arizona is small up front, starting a couple of 247-pounders among its three down linemen. This is the area that could get exposed the most by Pac-12 teams. Washington is averaging 143.3 rushing yards per game but could turn it up against Arizona by delivering a steady dose of running back Myles Gaskin, who gained 1,302 yards last season as a true freshman.Gaskin wasnt needed much in Washingtons early blowouts -- 40 carries for 217 yards -- but he should be a bigger factor as the Huskies competition improves.

MANILA, Philippines -- Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao confirmed Wednesday that he will come out of retirement to fight WBO welterweight champion Jessie Vargas on Nov. 5 in Las Vegas.The boxer and Philippines senator issued a statement confirming the bout, saying he would conduct his entire training camp in his home country so he can also attend to his legislative work, as he promised during the election campaign.His adviser, Michael Koncz, said there will be a promotional tour from Sept. 8-10 in Los Angeles, after which Pacquiao and his team will go home so he can attend to his Senate duties.The 37-year-old Pacquiao said he was excited to return to the ring and said he has to fight again to earn a living.Before his last fight in April, he said that he would retire. During the campaign for the May 9 election, he assured Filipino voters that he would focus on legislative work if elected to the Senate.Yes, the fight is on. I have agreed to a Nov. 5 fight with reigning WBO welterweight champion Jessie Vargas, Pacquiao said.Boxing is my passion. Nike Vapormax Rebajas. I miss what Id been doing inside the gym and atop the ring, he added.Pacquiao, who rose from an impoverished childhood, said boxing is his main source of income. He said he could not rely just on his salary as a public official.Pacquiao met for two hours with Bob Arum, the head of Top Rank Boxing, on Tuesday night in Manila and they will meet again soon for the contract signing, Koncz said.Pacquiaos Senate victory is the latest chapter in his stunning rags-to-riches story. He had worked odd jobs before lacing up the gloves at the age of 12.
