NEW YORK -- John Saunders, the versatile sportscaster who has hosted ESPNs The Sports Reporters for the last 15 years, has died, the network announced Wednesday. He was 61.Saunders joined ESPN in 1986. The Canadian did play-by-play, led NHL Stanley Cup and World Series coverage on ESPN and ABC, and hosted studio shows for baseball, college football and college basketball.A cause of death was not announced.This tragic news brings us unspeakable sorrow. John was the patriarch of our family, and we cant believe he is gone, Saunders family said in a statement. We are sincerely touched by the outpouring of support and sadness, which is a reflection of the character and integrity that defined him.While we dont yet have all the specifics, John wasnt feeling well physically in recent days and sadly, he was unresponsive earlier this morning. We appreciate all of the thoughts and prayers for our cherished father, husband, brother and uncle.Saunders took over as host of The Sports Reporters, a Sunday morning staple of ESPN programming, after Dick Schaap died in 2001. Saunders played the role of calm traffic cop on the panel show that features three sports journalists volleying opinions on the top sports news of the day.John was an extraordinary talent and his friendly, informative style has been a warm welcome to sports fans for decades. His wide range of accomplishments across numerous sports and championship events is among the most impressive this industry has ever seen, ESPN President John Skipper said in a statement.Saunders was also a founding member of the board of directors for The V Foundation for Cancer Research, a charity started by the network after former college basketball coach and ESPN announcer Jim Valvano died of cancer in 1993.He was as close to Jimmy V as anybody at ESPN, said Dick Vitale, who has worked at ESPN for decades with Saunders and considered him one of his closest friends.Vitale said Saunders was a diabetic, but he was not ailing, and the death of one of his closest friends was unexpected. Saunders has been the master of ceremonies at Vitales gala and V Foundation fundraiser in Sarasota, Florida, in 10 of 11 years the event has been held, said the longtime college basketball analyst.When Vitale had to have throat surgery that threatened his career in 2008, Saunders surprised him at the hospital and was there with Vitale before and after the procedure.The doctor told me that there was a good chance it was going to be cancer, Vitale told the AP in a phonee interview. Artie Burns Jersey. I said, `John, do me a favor. When you come in that room after just give me thumbs up if its not ... and if it is dont do anything. And when I woke, the first guy I saw after surgery was John and I saw thumbs up and we hugged.Vitale added: He was like family. Im so shocked.The news of Saunders death was reported on ESPNs morning edition of SportsCenter from the Olympics in Brazil by anchor Hannah Storm, who struggled to compose herself enough to get through the announcement.Johns passion for his family, his nation, his favorite sport & the V foundation will stay with me forever, NBCs Mike Tirico, a longtime ESPN colleague of Saunders, tweeted. As will his kindness and support.Saunders death came less than two years after the network lost another popular broadcaster, Stuart Scott, at the age of 49 in January 2015 after a bout with cancer.Saunders was born in the Toronto area and grew up near Montreal.He was very proud to be Canadian, said Leo Rautins, the former NBA player who teamed with Saunders on Toronto Raptors telecasts. Hed mention it every time he could.Saunders played hockey at Western Michigan from 1974-76, teaming with former New York Rangers president and general manager Neil Smith.One of saddest days of my life today as I grieve suddenly losing my best friend of 42 years, John Saunders. Life will never be the same, Smith tweeted.Saunders younger brother, Bernie, played 10 NHL games for the Quebec Nordiques from 1979 to 1981.Saunders started as news director at CKNS Radio in Espanola, Ontario, in 1978. He worked as sports anchor at CKNY-TV in North Bay, Ontario, from 1978 to 1979, and at ATV News in New Brunswick in 1979-80 before he became sports anchor for CITY-TV in Toronto from 1980 to 1982.Saunders worked as a sports anchor at WMAR-TV in Baltimore from 1982 to 1986 before joining ESPN. While at ESPN, he doubled as a play-by-play man for the Raptors.I think youd have a hard time finding anyone to say anything bad about John, Rautins said. He was very giving, very caring, very intelligent.Saunders lived in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, with wife Wanda. They had two daughters, Aleah and Jenna.He was one of the most significant and influential members of the ESPN family, as a colleague and mentor, and he will be sorely missed, Skipper said. Our thoughts are with his loved ones at this extremely difficult time. Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys ChinaWholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
YAS MARINA, Abu Dhabi -- Kimi Raikkonen says Ferrari has to be happy with fourth on the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix grid despite being pipped to third late in Q3. Kendall Fuller Jersey .Raikkonen was third after the initial runs in Q3, but was relegated one position by Daniel Ricciardo in the closing seconds as the Red Bull driver crossed 0.015s quicker. Though he dropped a position on the second row, Raikkonen is focusing on the positives from a much-improved weekend for the Italian team.We had it for a while and the last lap was pretty OK but was nothing like very good, Raikkonen said. So the difference was very small so for sure that amount you can find in one braking here or there, but if you get sideways you lose that easily. It was there but this is what weve got so weve got to be happy with that. The car has been behaving well, its not an easy place to do a good lap so its not ideal but we tried at least.Red Bull has looked strong in the the tight and twisty final sector this weekend. When asked if the final sector was a problem for Ferrari, he replied: No. I think its been as good as the other sectors in feeling wise, but obviously I dont know, I havent seen the times.I think we did a pretty decent job, obviously not enough to be at the front but I think it was very close between third and fourth place. That little difference for sure it could have been a bit better here or there so I think it was a pretty OK two laps but not perfect. But this is what weve got today.Ricciardo will line up in front of Raikkonen with the super-soft tyre on, giving the Ferraris ultra-soft tyre a potential advantage off the ling thanks to extra grip. However, Raikkonen is unsure whether it will make a huge difference given the short run to Turn 1.Its hard to say. I dont think theres an awful lot of difference between those two tyres but who knows? I think its more important to make a good start, obviously there should be a small difference but like you said the distance is very short so we should try to make a good start and go from there. Eric Berry Jersey .

PARIS -- Olympic champion Ruth Jebet broke the womens 3,000-meter steeplechase world record by six seconds at the Diamond League meeting in Paris on SaturdayMeanwhile, Kendra Harrison won the 100 hurdles without beating her own record. Billy Price Jersey .The 19-year-old Jebet, born in Kenya and running for Bahrain, clocked 8 minutes, 52.78 seconds at Stade de France.The previous record was 8:58.81 by Gulnara Samitova-Galkina of Russia at the 2008 Beijing Games.I tried many times to beat the world record, Jebet said. I was not expecting such a big difference with the record.Jebets performance was so dominant that she beat Diamond League rival Hyvin Kiyeng of Kenya by nearly 10 seconds, and Emma Coburn of the U.S. by almost 20.Harrison won in 12.44 seconds ahead of American countrywoman Dawn Harper-Nelson (12.65).I felt allright even though I kicked a few hurdles, which made me a bit upset, Harrison said. The start wasnt that great. Now I have a few days off, so Im really looking forward to Zurich (on Thursday).Dutchwoman Dafne Schippers won the 200 in 22.13, and American Natasha Hastings won the 400 in 50.06.Ben Youssef Meite of the Ivory Coast won the 100 in 9.96 seconds ahead of South African Akani Simbine and Dutchman Churandy Martina.Frenchman Christophe Lemaitre, the Olympic bronze medalist in the 200 meters, pulled out after feeling a twinge when warming up.I didnt feel well, Lemaitre said. Theres no point tempting the devil and getting injured.Kenyan Nicholas Bett won the mens 400 hurdles ahead of American Kerron Clement, while Kenyan Alfred Kipketer won the 800 meters.Meanwhile, 19-year-old Kenyan Yomif Kejelcha won the mens 3,000 in 7:28.19, the fastest time this year.Olympic silver medalist Renaud Lavillenie of France won the pole vault with an effort of 5.93 meters, Czech Jakub Vadlejch won the javelin, and American Chris Carter won the triple jump in 16.92 meters, with Cuban Alexis Copello second in 16.90.Tom Walsh of New Zealand just beat Ryan Crouser of the U.S., the Olympic champion, by one centimeter in the shot put.Britains Laura Muir set the leading time this year to win the 1,500 in 3:55.22.I couldnt believe the time, especially since I didnt do one track session since Rio, Muir said. I knew I had to dig in and hold on during the third lap.Serbian Ivana Spanovic won the long jump; Spaniard Ruth Beitia won the high jump, and Croatian Sandra Perkovic clinched the discus. Wholesale Cincinnati Bengals Jerseys . -- Hunter Smith scored the winner with just 12 seconds remaining in the third period as the Oshawa Generals edged the host Sarnia Sting 5-4 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. Dre Kirkpatrick Jersey . Here are his mid-season NBA awards.  MVP: (KEVIN DURANT-Thunder) - Has been sensational this season and more importantly, the most consistent player in the league. Considering that his team has been without star guard Russell Westbrook and with the free agent departure of sharpshooter Kevin Martin, hes had to carry the majority of the load to not only keep his team afloat but more importantly, at an elite level. . Ivanovic was leading 7-5, 1-0 when Hantuchova withdrew after falling 0-40 behind in the second game. The match started slowly for Ivanovic, who surrendered her first two serves as Hantuchova took a 5-3 lead. One of the reasons New Zealand are expected to fare better than South Africa in Indian conditions is that they have three spinners, three varieties of spinners, two of whom have had success in India in the shortest format of the game. On the other hand, though, Indias batsmen are expected to have improved their game on such tracks. They will be expected to do better than last year, when only Ajinkya Rahane managed to score a hundred and average over 35. It wont be easy, though, should the pitches be similar.Anil Kumble, Indias coach, spoke of the challenges faced by not just Indian batsmen, but any modern batsman batting out of his comfort zone, two days before the start of the first Test in Kanpur.It is quite challenging for a modern-day cricketer to keep changing formats, Kumble said. Invariably, when you are playing the shorter format, its in favour of the batsmen. There is hardly anything for the bowler. So, obviously, when they come to play in a Test match, irrespective of the conditions, seam or spin…We have seen modern cricketers, who, if you look at their records in previous years, they were all good players of fast bowling. But they have struggled on seaming tracks because of what the modern batsman encounters. That goes with all teams. But one good thing we have had is we are coming off a Test series, and we have a long Test season at home. So itll only get better. And in terms of our preparations, we have spent a lot of time focusing on preparing to play spinners, and how to respond to playing spinners. And it will only improve, which youll notice as the series goes by.According to Kumble, the problem persists despite knowing what to expect in todays world of analysis. I dont think there is any intrigue left, but the challenge is to adapt to those conditions as quickly as possible, he said. Its equally the same for the home team as well because youre playing so much of cricket. Its all about adaptingg to whatever challenges are forthcoming. John Ross Jersey. Yes, the home team certainly has the advantage of knowing and playing in these conditions, growing up in these conditions.For a foreign team, since they travel so much - and even for the Indian team now because we have travelled so much - the conditions are no longer alien. Its all about how good and how committed you are, and what kind of quality cricket you can put across on the park.Indias preparations have been thorough. They assembled in Kanpur on September 17, five days before the first Test, and began with their fitness tests. Knowing they could have to face a lot of left-arm pace in the series from Trent Boult and Neil Wagner, they called up Delhis Pradeep Sangwan and Rajasthans Aniket Choudhary to bowl in the nets. They were helped by two pretty good local left-arm quicks. Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav, who is from Kanpur, was at the nets too.The training sessions were long and intense. On Monday, they went on for at least two hours either side of their press conference, virtually spending the whole day at the ground. Kumble said they were not underestimating the opposition.The New Zealand team have done really well, Kumble said. They are not just good at home, but they tour really well, and were aware of that. The fact that they have three spinners, yes, we watch them - at least I watched them - two of the three spinners in the World T20. They played a significant role in New Zealands progress. We respect the opposition and we know that New Zealand is a very potent team, not just in the spin department, but all-round as well. We certainly respect their all-round ability. They have different variations in their spin attack - left-arm spinner, offspinner, legspinner. That is something you dont often see in a foreign team. Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Michigan failed its first major road test of the season. Luka Doncic Jersey .It might not matter for the Wolverines and their playoff hopes -- if they win out.Freshman Keith Duncan kicked a 33-yard field goal as time expired and Iowa stunned second-ranked Michigan 14-13 on Saturday night, damaging the Wolverines playoff hopes.We just have to look in the mirror and look at the film and become better because of this, Michigan tight end Jake Butt said. Theres really no excuse, theres absolutely no excuse.But Michigan is still very much alive, in part because No. 3 Clemson and No. 4 Washington lost earlier in the day -- at home, no less.Still, its the middle of November and the Wolverines have yet to beat a team with more than one league win on the road.Wilton Speight threw for 103 yards with a pick for the Wolverines, who gained just 201 yards of offense.We didnt make enough plays to extend drives, first downs. We missed on some deep throws, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said. Every little thing doesnt always go your way, and to win, youve got to make it that way.Akrum Wadley had 115 yards rushing to help the Hawkeyes (6-4, 4-3 Big Ten) beat a top-five team for the first time in six years.Michigan (9-1, 6-1, No. 3 CFP) appeared to have the game wrapped up when Channing Stribling intercepted C.J. Beathards pass with 1:54 left. But the Hawkeyes stuffed the Wolverines, and a facemask penalty put Iowa at Michigans 36 with 1:23 to go.Duncan then drilled the ball through the uprights from nearly the exact same spot where Daniel Murray hit the winner eight years ago to knock Penn State out of the national title picture.It was an incredible feeling, said Duncan, who was immediately mobbed by teammates and fans. Its definitely the biggest kick Ive had.THE TAKEAWAYMichigan: The Wolverines offense struggled mightily on a cold and windy night in Iowa City -- where they had lost in each of their last three trips. Michigans top-ranked defense made up for it for much of the night, but a bad final series by its offense and a crushing penalty put Iowa in position to pull off the massive upset.Iowa: After three straight homes losses and a 41-14 loss at Penn State last week, the Hawkeyes redeemed themselves. The defense looked like the one that was expected to help the Hawkeyes compete for a second straight Big Ten title, and the offense did just enough to give the program a win it sorely needed after weeks of listless play.POLL IMPLICATIONS: Its hard to see Michigan falling further than fourth in the Top 25 . One-loss Louisville and Ohio State could jump past the Wolverines, but all that matters is being in the top four when the playoff committee makes its selections.HISTORY REPEATS ITSELFDuncans big kick was not only reminiscent to 2008, but 1985 -- and Michigan was involved in that one. In what is remembered as perhaps the biggest game in the history of Kinnick Stadium, top-ranked Iowa beat No. 2 Michigan 12-10 on a field goal at the final whistle. The Hawkeyes were later knocked off by Ohio State -- and if the same happens to Michigan on Nov. 26, it can likely forget about the playoffs.THE NUMBERSMichigan ran for only 98 yards on 35 carries. ...Wadley had his best game for the Hawkeyes, even if hes put up bigger numbers in previous efforts. Wadley also caught a 3-yard TD pass on a fourth-down play to bring the Hawkeyes within 10-8. ...Kenny Allen kicked a career-long 51-yard field goal with 9:35 left. ...Iowas home season has certainly been interesting. Before beating Michigan, it lost to North Dakota State of the FCS -- also on a kick at the final whistle.HE SAID ITId rather throw for 60 yards and get a win than throw for 400 and get a loss, Beathard said. He was just 8 of 19 passing for 66 yards.UP NEXTMichigan closes out its home schedule against Indiana, its final tuneup for what should be yet another massive showdown with rival Ohio State.Iowa travels to face Illinois in its last road game of 2016.

Neville reckons England are going through a transformation period and that the former Blackburn, Liverpool and Fulham boss should be allowed to continue the changes.Hodgsons contract expires in the summer and his hopes of remaining in the job may be shaped by how England perform at the finals in France. But Neville believes the modifications in the squad, which began at the end of a disappointing World Cup campaign in 2014, have gone under the radar.Having lost to Italy and Uruguay, Hodgson played teenagers Luke Shaw and Raheem Sterling, against Costa Rica, while Phil Jones, Jack Wilshere and Ross Barkley were all 22-years-old or younger.Of the experienced players in the squad only 36-year-old Frank Lampard played in the last game before the squad returned from Brazil, with the travelling England supporters showing their appreciation after the scoreless draw. Dele Alli (R) battles for the ball in a recent friendly The changes had started in Miami before the World Cup with Danny Welbeck, Chris Smalling, Jon Flanagan and John Stones involved, while Dele Alli and Eric Dier have been involved in the European Qualifiers.We owe those fans something, said Neville.The way in which they treated us at the end of that game against Costa Rica, when we walked over to them, Ive never seen that before. Andy Burton reports from Englands hotel after Roy Hodgson holds his first press conference since naming his final 23-man squad I hope people recognise there was an 18-year-old on the pitch against Costa Rica in Luke Shaw, there was Ross Barkley, Phil Jones, all youngish lads apart from Frank.Jack Wilshere was 22, and the 19-year-old Raheem Sterling came on.Yes, people would argue that the 2014 tournament in Brazil was a major disappointment. Id agree with that, but this summer is a big moment in terms of how the four years will be viewed in terms of the four-year contract we were all given. Raheem Sterling in action against Costa Rica in 20114 People will judge it based upon tournaments. Seth Curry Jersey. I think Roy can be proud of an excellent piece of work.It needs a good finish in the summer. My view would be that he would go on beyond the summer because at this moment in time hes doing the right things and making the right decisions, not just for himself, but for the team long-term.I think of 2010 in South Africa and old players called back out of retirement and panic calls on the last day to players to come and play.Roy went the other way. He went with Barkley, Sterling, Welbeck, Jones and Smalling. Flanagan and Stones were brought in pre-tournament. Ross Barkley (L) celebrates with Wayne Rooney and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain Post-tournament, Alli and Dier were brought in among others. Hes made a series of really good decisions for the English team but also for future tournaments for the next two to four years and hopefully he, we, can see that through.Roys brought calmness. Players respect him. They say: Yes, I like him. Theres nobody looking at Roy and thinking: Hes a bad man, hes arrogant. Actually they say: Ive got a lot of time for him. England manager Roy Hodgson says omitting three players from his squad was yesterday was very difficult Hodgsons squad for Euro 2016 is the youngest England have ever taken to the competition with an average age of a little over 25.And in an interview for the book, Fifty Years Of Hurt: The Story of England Football And Why We Should Never Stop Believing, Neville insists the perception of Hodgson as a conservative manager is misleading.What Roys been over the last four years is bold.

IRVINE, Calif. Darrell Daniels Jersey . -- Todd Gurley watched most of his first NFL training camp from the sidelines. He would do a few individual drills on his healing knee while his Rams teammates worked together.Just about everything has changed in the past year for Gurley and the Rams. For starters, their training camp sideline is no longer in the Midwest, and Gurley isnt on it.It just feels good to just be able to be out here, Gurley said after the Rams opening workout of camp at UC Irvine. First day (of last years training camp), I wasnt doing anything. I probably wasnt doing anything until the end of training camp.The second-year running back is in the thick of practice this summer for Los Angeles, with no bigger physical problems than normal fatigue as he works on a worthy sequel to his sensational rookie season.Theres no need for patience with Gurley during this training camp in Orange County, yet the Rams intend to be cautious with the most important piece of their quest to improve the NFLs least productive offense last season.This is Todds first full offseason program, so thats different for him, coach Jeff Fisher said. Hes in great shape right now. (Gurley will get) a few carries here and there during the preseason games. Hes going to get his workload in practice, more so than he will in the games. That just makes sense to us.After Gurleys remarkable success last season, it was easy to forget the risk taken by the Rams when they chose him with the 10th overall pick. The speedy Georgia back tore a ligament in his knee in the previous November, and he wasnt fully recovered from surgery when the draft rolled around.The Rams were patient with Gurley, who couldnt participate much in the Rams 2015 offseason program. He practiced only without pads in the late stages of training camp, and he didnt play until the third game of the regular season.Gurley took off in October with four straight 125-yard games, and he remained a steady contributor until sitting out the season finale. He was named the NFLs offensive rookie of the year with 1,106 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns in 13 games.The guys were able to see what I was able to do last year, Gurley said. So just being able to take (a bigger) role on, and just being able to tell myself `OK, if you do stuff good, the team is going to roll off that. Im just trying to go out there and create as much energy for the whole offense.In camp, Gurley will work on minimizing fumbles -- he only had three on 229 carries -- and improving his pass-catching skills after making just 21 receptions last year.Although Gurley doesnt even turn 22 years old until Wednesday, the Rams already count on him to be a leader, a prolific tailback and a good influence on Jared Goff, the No. 1 pick in the draft. Gurley and the new quarterback have been texting since draft day, building their rapport on and off the field.The Rams clearly intend to run the ball extensively this year. Gurley might also shoulder a larger load of the carries in the absence of Tre Mason, last seasons backup, who has cut off contact with the team after an offseason filled with legal troubles.Los Angeles seems likely to sign another running back to join veteran Benny Cunningham as Gurleys backups, but Gurley is ready to take on most of the work in September if necessary.Obviously, I know were going to run the ball, Gurley said. Im a running back, so if you give me the ball, Ill be happy. Ill just come out here, work hard and whatever they call in the game, Ill be happy with it.Gurley is also settling nicely into his new West Coast home, although his new fans are still getting to know his face and dreadlocks. His national endorsement deal with Carls Jr. is changing that as well.Nobody really knows football players, Gurley said with a grin. I mean, I have gotten a lot of questions like, `Oh, youre that guy from the burger commercial? So thats my name now.

He is his biggest enemy, said Bedene, the Slovenian-born British No. 3, ahead of their match.Kyrgios, who said in a recent interview with the New York Times magazine that he wants to quit the sport at the age of 27, is also known for a signature tweener trick shot through his legs.Its not easy because it gets quite entertaining. Its funny, Bedene added. It gets interesting, as a player you want to enjoy the match. All those different emotions going through and then a player is playing tricks.Its not easy to stay focused, but you have to try to play the best you can.The best players always take advantage. You have to stay focused and you know those games and those points will come. You just have to grab them.Should Kyrgios win his first two matches at Flushing Meadows, he could face a potential third-round match against fellow Australian Bernard Tomic. Justin Lawler Jersey .

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths has been named Scottish Premiership Player of the Season by the competition sponsors. Adrian Peterson Jersey . The 25-year-old was pivotal in helping the Hoops secure their fifth successive Scottish Premiership title win.Griffiths netted 31 times in the league and reached an overall tally of 40 for the campaign, the first Celtic player to reach that figure since Henrik Larsson 12 years ago. The latest prize for Griffiths has completed a hat-trick for the Scotland international this season, after he won the SPFL Players Player of the Year, and the Scottish Football Writers Player of the Year awards. Griffiths with his latest award and the Scottish Premiership trophy Playing as well as I did, scoring 40 goals in a season and collecting a clean sweep of awards is something I never dreamed of at the start of the season, Griffith said.But I said it before that I want to make a name for myself here, I dont want to be living off the back of others. I want my name remembered as well.The former Livingston, Dundee Wolves and Hibernian forward, who blossomed under Ronny Deila at Celtic, is looking forward to working with new manager Brendan Rodgers.Griffiths was at Celtic Park when Rodgers arrived at the club last month, and is confident the Hoops will flourish under the former Liverpool and Swansea boss Henrik Larsson scoring for Celtic in the UEFA Cup final against Porto in 2003 I think everybodys excited. Its a big name coming to Scottish football, Griffiths said.You saw when the gaffer was unveiled there were over 10,000 people here, it shows what it means to the Celtic fans. Im sure he took in how big a club it is.Ive not spoken to him a length, I just said hello. I was here for his unveiling as well.

Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. The story of [Carl] Edwards signing will sound like an apocryphal tale if he one day makes the big leagues, Baseball America once wrote, three years before Edwards did in fact make the big leagues and four before he was standing on the mound in the 10th inning of Game 7 of a World Series. Heres the story, condensed, and you can believe it if you choose:Edwards was a rail-thin right-hander who threw in the mid-80s and never joined the showcase circuit for draftable and recruitable high schoolers. An area scout for the Texas Rangers, Chris Kemp, found him playing in an adult league and recruited him to pitch at a junior college where Kemp coached. The Rangers drafted him in the 48th round, and Edwards ditched his college commitment. Besides Edwards, only one other player drafted in the 48th round that year has made the majors, for all of four innings. The next year, there was no 48th round.Theyll say of the game we all just watched that you couldnt make it up if you tried, but in fact no fiction writer would tell it this way. Fiction likes to prophesy its heroes, to plant little hints and foreshadowing so that we know who we should be paying attention from the start. Its the Law of Conservation of Details: We cant possibly keep 7 billion characters straight, so the author limits our view to The One. This right here is the hero that fiction would give us:Kris Bryant, one of the best high school hitters in the country when he was 18, the best college hitter by a mile when he was 21, the greatest minor leaguer in the world when he was 22, the best rookie in the world at 23, the best player in -- well, in the National League, at least, at age 24, and the smiling face of this Cubs championship. A worthy hero.He was not, though, the MVP of this series. The MVP of the series is an absolute miracle: After high school, Ben Zobrist had no offers to play college baseball. A trip to Bob Schlemmers Central Illinois Exposure Day at Illinois Central College -- what are we even talking about here? -- after graduation brought one offer from Olivet Nazarene University, an NAIA school in Kankakee. Ill never forget that, Schlemmer said. He signed his letter-of-intent right on the picnic table. The guys career almost ended because his dad wouldnt pay $50 for him to go to a tryout.He was drafted in the sixth round, a round that would produce one other major leaguer you miiiiiight remember, the reliever Cla Meredith. The round produced 45 wins above replacement level in the majors, of which 42 are credited to Zobrist, a player who had three career home runs before his 27th birthday. Hes 35 now, and about 10 minutes before Edwards came into the game he slapped a double down the third-base line to drive in the go-ahead run in perhaps the greatest Game 7 in World Series history. He is a miracle.Rajai Davis: Miracle. Thirty-eighth-round pick. Didnt have a regular job in the majors until he was 28. Didnt hit his 13th career home run until he was already 30. At age 35 this year, he led the league in stolen bases and knocked 13 homers in a single season, if you include the tying dinger off Aroldis Chapman in the eighth inning of the greatest Game 7 in the history of baseball.That home run matched the bomb hit by David Ross, a seventh-rounder whose career somehow outlasted all but one first-rounder (CC Sabathia) taken the same year. Its probably fair to say that Ross is in the majors this year entirely because hes a great guy and a good friend, and because Jon Lesters UCL didnt snap before the season began. Yet there were games in this series when he looked like the best player on the field, and in what was essentially a bonus game for his career -- Eddie Vedder sang him into retirement three days ago! -- he reminded us that he has homered more often (per at-bat) over the past five years than Prince Fielder and Adrian Gonzalez. Miracle.Ross also drew a walk Wednesday off Cody Allen, who otherwise threw two hitless innings to complete one of the great postseasons weve ever seen from a reliever: 13? innings, scoreless, 24 strikeouts, against the best, second-best and maybe fifth-best offenses in the majors. There he was, when Corey Kluber finally caved in after starting yet another game on short rest, after Andrew Miillers slider finally started to show its exhaustion, when there was nobody left -- there was Allen, as dominant as ever and pushing this tie game into extra innings. Wholesale Vikings Jerseys Online. Twenty-third-round pick. The only player from that round to make the majors. Miracle.Most of the players we see in the majors were the best player on every team they ever played on, but thats not universally true. In the era of showcases and travel-ball teams, where the best teenagers from around the country get funneled into the same weekend tournaments, a player like Zobrist will reach a point where hes no longer special. If hes lucky enough to be drafted, hell look around his minor-league clubhouses and see just how special he isnt. Baseball is extremely good at finding the couple hundred best young players, calling them a cohort and turning them into Kris Bryants. After the sorting is over, though, there are 7 billion people left over, and from those 7 billion come the stories.In a baseball memoir called Odd Man Out, a former minor leaguer named Matt McCarthy writes about the year he spent playing short-season ball. McCarthy was drafted in the 21st round and signed for $1,000, and at one point he and his teammates complain about the special treatment that a first-round pick always gets.When Joe has a good game, the coaches or writers or fans or whoever will nod their heads and reaffirm what they already know to be true ... that Joes a star in the making. But when one of us does good, people will think its luck or something because were not one of the chosen few predicted to make the big leagues.And if Joe does bad, said Blake, picking up where Heath left off, theyll just chalk it up to him having a bad night. But if one of us goes out and gives up six runs, well ... thats what people expect because nobodys countin on us to make it anyway. Its all a self-fulfilling prophecy.In many ways, this is true. Every late-round pick can tell you about the playing time he lost, or the promotion he didnt get, because a lesser player was a better prospect. The game is not entirely fair to 48th-round picks when theyre 22.But there comes a point when it gets to be totally fair. Davis, that 38th-round pick, got to bat against Aroldis Chapman, the hardest throwing pitcher ever and a player who signed a contract coming out of Cuba that was 30,000 times more than the one Davis probably signed coming out of college. There are no separate leagues for the prospects and the non-prospects. Eventually, they face one another, and no matter how hard Chapman throws it, there is no scout, coach, writer or doubter who is allowed to tell Davis not to spin on it and send it into the happiest landing spot that Progressive Field has ever offered. Zobrist got to drive in Bryant, the obvious hero of our story, to give the Cubs back the lead, and Edwards got to come in to protect the lead in a game that will one day sound like an apocryphal tale.Its been 108 years of love, support and patience waiting for a team like this to make it happen, a soaked Theo Epstein told a soaked Bill Murray after the game, and if hed been surrounded by a million Cubs fans instead of in a closed-off clubhouse it would have been the line that brought the biggest cheer.We wonder, sometimes, why we do this ritual, the every-night-at-7:05 ritual with the occasional October if were lucky enough. We wonder why this weird sport with its weird rules and its odds stacked so solidly against our team makes us so happy. We wonder, especially, why we draw such pride and satisfaction from events we are not even actually participating in. We are not the players. We do not cause these events. Why? Why do we do this:Heres part of why: Even if we know we are not the players, we know that the players -- at least the Zobrists, the Davises, the Allens, the Edwards -- are us. Its been 108 years of love, support and patience waiting for a team like this to make it happen, Epstein said of himself, but its just as true for the fans, and its just as true for the players. None of what happened Wednesday was ever guaranteed, and none of it was ever impossible. Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys ChinaWholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana Pacers knew they would need to reach deep into their bench Friday night in order to get a win. Cheap Clemson Gear .With three players sitting out due to injuries -- including Paul George, who is nursing a sore left ankle and a nagging back injury -- Indiana not only relied on its depth, the Pacers used it to dismantle the Nets 118-97, Brooklyns sixth straight loss.Eleven Pacers dressed Friday night, and nine played at least 18 minutes. Glenn Robinson III got his second start of the season and finished with 20 points and five rebounds.I just came in ready. I had the right mindset. (Coach) Nate (McMillan) talked to me before the game, told me I was starting, I was going to play big minutes, Robinson said. I thought we brought the energy. We were intense defensively. Were just starting to get our chemistry and weve just got to keep going.After losing two of their last three games, the Pacers were in sync, clicking and gelling on the court.Following Indianas practice on Thursday, George gathered the Pacers for a players-only meeting, addressing some of Indianas shortcomings and kinks that needed worked out. Robinson noted that the Pacers needed to gather and discuss some of the problems that have hampered a team that had a lot of preseason hype.For us, we have to establish who we are. We need to establish our identity, McMillan said. Tonight, I thought they set the tone. We cant go back. Weve been up and down. We have to move forward and build off this game, have intensity on both ends of the floor.Rodney Stuckey scored 18 points, and Al Jefferson and Myles Turner each finished with 16 points.After an 11-0 Nets run in the first quarter, Indiana trailed by seven points.

They outworked us, and they were more focused than us for the majority of the game, Lopez said. We were lax on both ends of the floor. We need to fight. We need to grind every possession to give ourselves a shot. The guys in the locker room right now are the ones that can fix it.TIP-INS:Brooklyn: The Nets are 0-5 in road games this season when their opponent scores more than 120 points. .

CLEVELAND -- Jon Lester is a study in contrasts. Jamie McGinn Jersey . When the baseball leaves his left hand on its way to the plate, the Chicago Cubs ace is dominant, particularly in October.When it leaves his hand on the way to first base, however, all bets are off.A mental block. The yips. Whatever it is thats making Lester turn a routine pickoff throw into something far more problematic, he cant shake it.And on Tuesday night the man who first noticed the troubling signs and tried to shield it from view will try to exploit it when Lester starts Game 1 of the World Series against manager Terry Francona and the Cleveland Indians.The skipper could tell something was amiss while working with Lester near the end of Franconas tenure with the Boston Red Sox. They attempted to deal with it quietly.We did a lot of things to make sure that it didnt get out in the open, Francona said. I thought we actually did a really good job because it wasnt until I left there that people started to realize that.What used to be a well-protected secret is now on display for all of baseball to see.Lester once went 66 straight starts -- two full calendar years -- without even attempting a pickoff toss. The nadir came in 2015, when any baserunner became a threat to go regardless of pedigree.And why not? Opponents stole 44 bases in 55 attempts against Lester last year, easily the most against any pitcher in the majors.Lester grew tired of trying to explain something the inexplicable, particularly for a pitcher whose typically solid control only seems to improve in lockstep with the stakes -- hes 3-0 in three World Series starts with a sparkling 0.43 ERA.So Cubs manager Joe Maddon decided to take some of the onus on Lester this spring and instead make controlling the running game a collective effort.Everybodys got an assignment per pitch, what we want to do, Maddon said. What Jon does as good as anybody in major league baseball is throw the ball from the mound to the plate, thats it. I wanted Jon to focus on what he does well first.Lester worked on his slide step and mixed up his tempo. Catcher David Ross improved his throwing, no small task at 39. The results this season were manageable. Only 28 of 41 base stealers advanced 90 feet safely, and three of those came in Lesters meaningless final start.We dont want guys to take the extra base, Ross said. I dont want them to get on period.And thats the part of his job where Lester thrives. Hes 2-0 with a 0.86 ERA in three playoff starts this month (8-6 with a 2.50 ERA in his career) and hardly seems unnerved no matter what tactics opponents use in an attempt to rattle him.In Game 5 of the NLCS, the Dodgers Enrique Hernandez worked a walk leading off the first inning then faked a dash to second only to pull back at the last second. Down a pair of runs in the seventh inning, Joc Pederson nearly went full Usain Bolt, turning to face second base while lining up like a sprinter.Neither player went, ultimately. And each time Lester made it out of the frame unscathed. He also fielded his position cleanly when the Dodgers would try to lay down a bunt instead of swinging away. The way Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo figures it, maybe Lesters as much in the head of the opposition as they are in his.The Dodgers were trying to bunt and it didnt work out, Rizzo said. When you throw someone off their game plan and stick to your game plan, you have the upper hand.Expect the Indians to ramp up the pressure when given the opportunity. Clevelands 143 stolen bases led the American League, with Rajai Davis taking an AL-best 43 on his own. Davis studied plenty of tape on Lester ahead of Game 1. Asked if his eyes light up when facing a pitcher who cant throw over, and Davis smiled.Usually my feet light up, like `Mmmm, we gonna get a bag, Davis said. But the key is not actually getting a (stolen) base, its getting to first or getting to second because hes a tough pitcher. Thats the real key, getting on base and taking advantage of the opportunity if I have it.---AP Baseball Writer Ben Walker in New York contributed to this report. Connor Brickley Jersey .

The Browns running back will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery Thursday, the latest medical setback for Hardesty, who dislocated his right thumb on Monday after missing most of training camp with a hamstring injury. Cleveland coach Rob Chudzinski said Hardesty has been bothered by "nagging" soreness in his knee, and that the surgery is not related to the hamstring injury that forced him to miss the majority of workouts this summer. Hardesty had only returned to practice on Monday when he injured his thumb while jumping to catch a direct snap from centre. Chudzinski does not know how long Hardesty, who has undergone prior surgeries to repair torn ligaments in both knees, will be sidelined. "Well have to see after he gets that (scope)," Chudzinski said. "Its just to clean it up." Typically, the recovery time on such surgeries is least one month. Chudzinski said his message to Hardesty is to stay strong. "You have to keep coming back and keep fighting," he said. "I think that is the theme we have been talking about a lot. It applies everywhere in this game. And hell make it back." Chudzinski did not know which knee Hardesty was going to have scoped. Hardesty was limited in practice Tuesday, when he had a protective wrap over his thumb. He left without speaking to reporters. The engaging 26-year-old has had injury issues throughout his NFL career, and before he turned pro. Hardesty tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in the final exhibition game in 2010 and missed his entire rookie season. Hardesty also had knee problems in college at Tennessee, and had his right ACL repaired when he was a freshman with the Volunteers. Hes battled back every time, and now Hardesty will have to do it again. "That injury bug is something you cant control," said linebacker DQwell Jackson, who had had to overcome two major chest injuries. "Hes just got to stay positive. Once he has his surgery, its just one day at a time, just look at how you can make the situation better. It starts with the attitude, attitude is everything. Its going to help the healing process and its going to help him mentally get through it. "I would tell him is to keep good people around him just so he stays motivated and stays with a positive outlook. James Reimer Jersey. " Hardesty was drafted in the second round by Cleveland in 2010. He rushed for 271 yards as Trent Richardsons backup last season, but his roster spot was believed to be in jeopardy because of the arrival of Dion Lewis, who recently passed him on the depth chart. Chudzinski said the Browns will have to wait to see how long Hardesty will be out before any roster decisions can be finalized. "Well just have to see when he gets back and then balance that with the other guys and how they are doing and how theyve done in the next couple weeks," he said. With Chris Ogbonnaya and Brandon Jackson, the Browns have enough depth at running back to help ease the sting of losing Hardesty. "Its really nice having Dion in there because hes done a great job during the entire training camp," Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas said. "He did a great job in the first preseason game, and obviously with him and Trent and Obi, a nice little depth chart there. Theyll be able to pick up the slack nicely." NOTES: Thomas said RB Trent Richardson playing in the preseason should help the Browns line develop some chemistry with the second-year star. Richardson sat out all four exhibitions a year ago and never caught up. "You cant just plug somebody in there and just expect him to know where the reads are and the cuts and how were blocking every play," Thomas said. "So having live reps with him back there is going to be tremendously helpful." ... Starting S T.J. Ward will be kept out of Thursdays exhibition game against Detroit as a precaution as he recovers from a nagging hamstring. "Nothing wrong," Chudzinski said. "Just want to be smart about it and get him ready for the season." ... CB Chris Owens practiced with the starters on Wednesday and will play against the Lions after missing last weeks preseason opener against St. Louis with a strained foot arch. Owens is competing with Buster Skrine for the starting spot opposite Joe Haden. ... WRs Jordan Norwood (hamstring) and David Nelson (knee) and P T.J. Conley (groin) did not practice as the Browns did their final tuneup for the Lions. ... Undrafted rookie OL Chris Faulk had arthroscopic knee surgery Monday, Chudzinski said. Cheap Soccer Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From ChinaWholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys AuthenticCheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Mats Sundin Jersey . -- The 199th pick of the 2000 NFL draft now stands alone at No. 201.New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady became the NFLs all-time winningest quarterback on Sunday following the teams 26-10 triumph over the Los Angeles Rams at Gillette Stadium, breaking a tie with Peyton Manning to notch win No. 201.Im grateful for all of my teammates and my coaches and for my family and friends, Brady said. Theres been a lot of great football over the years, so its always been about winning and Ive been very fortunate to be on a lot of great teams. I just feel very grateful.The week before, Brady had broken a second-place tie with Brett Favre on the career wins list.Tom breaking the record, of course thats what it is all about, winning games, said coach Bill Belichick. Thinking back to that first one, in 2001 against Indianapolis, thats a lot of water under the bridge.Brady finished 33-of-46 for 269 yards and a touchdown in Sundays victory.Were in a locker room with a walking legend [who] has the most wins in quarterback history in the NFL but he still comes to work like he hasnt accomplished anything, said CB Malcolm Butler. I look up to that. Much respect and congratulations.Brady, 39, has mostly deflected all praise relating to his lofty standing.Its a team sport. Individual awards and things like that mean that Ive been a part of great teams with great coaches and great teammates, he said after win No. 200 last Sunday. Ive had a lot of really great support over the years, so hopefully we can keep winning. It never gets old.A four-time Super Bowl winner and two-time NFL Most Valuable Player, Brady has now recorded 179 regular-season wins and 22 in the playoffs. Manning posted 186 wins in the regular season and 14 in the postseason.Last Sunday, Belichick pointed out the little things that Brady does to help produce those victories.Situational plays that dont show up in the stat sheet are plays that you need for your team to win and Tom does a great job of that, he said. Hes as good a situational football player as Ive ever coached.In 50 of Bradys 201 wins, the Patriots were tied or losing in the fourth quarter. He has won an NFL record 13 division titles, and also holds the NFL record for most passes thrown without an interception (358, 2010-2011).Last week, Brady also became the fifth NFL quarterback to reach 60,000 passing yards, joining Manning (71,940), Favre (71,838), Drew Brees (64,490) and Dan Marino (61,361).Brady has been a Patriots captain in each of the past 15 seasons, a team record. His 232 games played are the most in team history.We love Tom, Patriots running back Dion Lewis said. Whenever you have a guy like that, one of the best whos ever played the game, you know hes going to help you win. Toronto Maple Leafs Gear .
