As Gadgetzan hits the (virtual) stores, weve nearly reached the end of our review of the 132 cards that make up Hearthstones latest expansion release. Cheap Lebrons From China . The major mechanics of the set have already been revealed, now we look at the last minute releases, more cards that fill holes in various archetypes in Constructed or Arena, rather than meta-defining cards.We start out with Hobart Grapplehammer, a card that Im glad can only be a one-of, given that its a legendary. A two-mana 2/2 needs to have a good effect to see any play outside of Arena, but I think this is a good one in decks that use a lot of weapons (if you dont, you obviously wouldnt use Hobart). When you get this card off on turn two -- sometimes you dont have a Fiery Win Axe in your hand -- youre making those two weapons into 4/2s, starting your Gorehowl with 8 attack, or making a 4/4 Fools Bane. A dead card late in the game, but most low-mana cards are, even some terrific ones like Zombie Chow. Main downside for Hobart is that hes not as good in Pirate decks, which will play a lot of Rusty Hooks and the Aggro Pirate Warrior may just be a better deck (its looking good so far) than a low-curve midrange that would get the most from Hobart. But hell be around until 2018.Priest got most of the Dragon love in this expansion, but Wrathion fits into Dragon decks of any class as a source of high-potential card draw. Even if you draw just one card, the worst-case scenario for this card, assuming a drawn card is worth 1.5 mana, a 4.5-mana, 4/5 with taunt is hardly a disaster. Draw two or three or even more cards and this card is a value god. And since youre playing it at six mana, you should be able to play most cards you play fairly quickly.Genzo, the Shark fits the role of Jeeves, which got you up to three cards at the end of your turn (and your opponent after their turn). Though with a better statline at 5/4, the conditions make this a much worse card. You could play Jeeves in a situation in which you would definitely get three cards. You could choose to play Jeeves in a situation in which your opponent never got the card draw. But you cant do that with Genzo. If you get cards, so does your opponent, and while you can run a specific, aggressive deck that needs your cards refilled, odds are youll also give your opponent the answer they need. Too often, this is just nothing more than a volatile generic 5/4, which isnt good enough.Naga Corsair is essentially a slightly worse Captain Greenskin (he gives you +1 durability as well) thats slightly less expensive (Greenskin is a five-mana card). While thats typically not-so-good, Aggro Pirate Warrior actually has enough tools these days to be a quality deck, at least until people cut some of the greed out of the new Gadgetzan archetypes to deal better with aggressive decks like that. Its a fine choice though right now.Like Naga Corsair, Public Defender needs a particular deck archetype to exist and be playable. Bolster Warrior kind of hangs just on the edge of competitiveness, but with so many good Warrior decks, its hard to see this card deserving much play. If you wanted a two-mana 0/7 that really stalls the game, you should be playing Doomsayer.Ancient of Blossoms has an interesting statline, the first card ever printed with a 3/8 line. But even with the taunt, its not as hardy as the Sunwalker for the same cost, the divine shield and additional health making the Sunwalker a more active simple stalling card. Arena only.Defias Cleaner gives a Silence, but its a conditional one that seems primarily targeted to dealing with Sylvanas Windrunner, a 5/5 with the Deathrattle of taking one of your minions. Thats a little too niche a use, 5/7 isnt a good statline for a six-mana card that doesnt do much otherwise, and if you want a silence minion, youll prefer Spellbreaker to this. Toshley was a 5/6 that gave you two spare parts, which had wider utility, but that card was barely on the edge of the meta. Maybe if we get a Ninja expansion and this gets some kind of Ninja synergy (ninergy?) this might see play outside Arena.Smugglers Crate wants to have a home in an aggressive, beast-focused handbuff hunter. While that deck is possible thanks to very powerful cards like Dispatch Kodo and Rat Pack, giving a random beast +2/+2 just isnt good enough. While one-mana cards are rarely good late game (there are a few exceptions) this one is just a dead draw far too often for a meh effect. Just not good enough for Hunter handbuff.Alleycat on the other hand, at least puts two tokens on the board that can either take out a two-mana 3/2 together, or go face. Sure, a Mage or Druid can ping these out with the hero power, but would you really be upset if they spent two mana to take out half of a one-mana card? Slightly more utility than Fiery Bat and will see play in Hunter. Plus, the internet loves cats.Hunters, even a deck built around the concept, can only fit so many secrets in before the deck collapses. How does a Hunter fill in Hidden Cache? Freezing Trap, Explosive Trap, Bear Trap, Snake Trap, and Cat Trick all are more impactful to the typical Hunter win condition, so which ones would you cut for Hidden Cache? Im not sure this card would even see play if it gave +3/+3 instead of +2/+2.Weasel Tunneler isnt a good card, but its a lot of fun for a very important reason. One of the things that Blizzard has generally shied away from is cards that actually mess up your opponents deck. Sure, you could place a Mine from an Iron Juggernaut or Ambushes from Beneath the Grounds, or give them an Excavated Evil that they may not have much use for. But in the case of the first two, they still drew a card anyway and Excavated Evil has some serious board uses, so you couldnt really cause serious disruption to your opponents plans other than an annoyance. Here, you give them a card that theyll actually hate to draw. We need more cards like this. This card isnt powerful enough to see play on its own, but I hope Blizzard prints more cards like these, which represent counterplay in a way few other cards can.Here we see Blizzards continual struggle to make Freeze synergy a thing, something we mostly only see in Freeze Mage, which can use combinations like Frost Nova/Doomsayer and Ice Bolt/Ice Lance to clear the board and burst down the opponent, respectively. Outside of that, there just havent been enough Freeze mechanics and they just havent been good enough to get much traction. Freezing Potion and Cryomancer dont change that.Freezing a single target is a niche kind of effect that you like to Discover more than you actually want to choose to put it in your deck and draw it. Even at zero mana, I cant see this being included in even a Reno-type Freeze Mage and even then its up-for-debate whether it can make that cut. The Cryomancer just isnt good enough when you get that Freeze Mage. Cards like that you want a really good dream scenario and +2/+2 isnt one of them.Greater Arcane Missiles is nine damage for seven mana, but really awkward damage. Generally speaking, when youre doing this much damage, you want to be doing it for a purpose and the random nature of this card makes it difficult to work as a board clear. And with the random damage going off in chunks of three, youll just end up wasting damage on token-filled boards by doing three damage to minions with just one or two health remaining. Yeah, you can set up a clear board and do nine damage to the face, but if a mage can set that up, theyve probably already won.There are a lot of tools to make a Demon Renolock-type deck, but Crystalweaver really wants a low-mana curved Demon deck, maybe a Demon Zoo to get maximum value. You can picture a dream in which you have a Flame Imp, a Malchezaars Imp, a Voidwalker, and an Imp Gang Boss on the board. Or a huge Forbidden Ritual. In those cases, you can see Crystalweaver being an insane Demon-based Power of the Wild. But as any Zoo player can tell you, if you already have all these things on the board unanswered, youre going to win anyway. So in a lot of cases it becomes a win-more card, but its an OK one thats worth exploring, at least. A solid Arena card, however.Kabal Trafficker probably comes too late and without enough instant board effect to really be playable in a Zoo deck, so youd have to look more at late-game Renolock-type decks. Is a random Demon really good enough to play a 6/6 with no immediate impact in Renolock? Id say no, the Warlock can already draw cards at will and a Renolock will typically not be top decking. A better card than Sense Demons, which draws two Demons from your deck one-time for three mana, but pretty much anything in the games better than Sense Demons.The problem with Krul the Unshackled is that you need a lot of Demons in your Renolock to make this card good. A typical Renolock is going to have a lot more than just Demons, so to make this card shine, youll have to remove many of the cards that make Renolock work and replace them with lesser Demons. Sure, you can drop your big Demons in a crazy turn, but why werent you playing them already? At best, this card is for Wild, when you get a few more demons like MalGanis that actually matter.This article is part of a series analyzing the cards in the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Hearthstone expansion.

Lebron Basketball Cheap . -- Matt Rupert scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the London Knights extended their win streak to nine games by defeating the Owen Sound Attack 4-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. Clearance Nike LeBron Shoes . -- Stanfords Kevin Danser knelt on one knee and hardly moved on the sideline as Michigan State celebrated its Rose Bowl victory and his Cardinal teammates made their way to the locker room. . White came in fourth place in the event. He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov. RIO DE JANEIRO -- American sabre fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad had spoken so often and movingly about her life as an openly observant Muslim and African-American woman at this particularly tense juncture in world events, it was easy to forget sometimes that her Olympic journey was about delivering a medal along with her message.But the athlete in the 30-year-old Muhammad showed up Monday midway through her Round of 16 match at the Rio Summer Games against Frances Ceclia Berder. Muhammad was fighting to stay in the Olympics. She got frustrated over a lost lead and then a series of calls, and the white-hot competitiveness she always told us was in her -- Trust me, she often said with a laugh, its there -- came spilling out.Muhammad pulled off her masked helmet and began talking to the referee after Berder went ahead, 11-7. Scoring is always highly subjective in fencing, especially when both fencers clash blades or trade touches at nearly the same instance. The athletes often both pump a fist at the same time, trying to buy a call or lay claim to the same point. But this time, Muhammad got a yellow card warning. Her early 6-2 lead and the match had changed to the rallying Berders favor now, and a few moments later, the ninth-ranked Frenchwoman, who sat one slot behind Muhammad in the world rankings, stopped Muhammads Olympic run two wins short of the medal round with a 15-12 loss.#USA fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad made history 2day: She is the first American to compete in a hijab. #fencing Rio 2016 (@Rio2016_en) August 8, 2016After that, it took the deeply disappointed Muhammad more than an hour to arrive at the postmatch media area. But when she did, the advocate who has caught attention in America and beyond for the grace of her message and eloquence of her example, was standing here again. She was asked to put her remarkable journey to this point in perspective. As usual, words didnt fail her.Someone suggested perhaps it had been a burden to undertake all she had done -- training at the same time she was speaking out tirelessly about being the first American Olympian to compete in a hijab; taking on what she calls misconceptions about Muslims in general, and specifically Muslim women like her who wear modest clothing in observance of their faith -- but she answered the same way she always has.Its been a blessing, Muhammad insisted.I feel like things meant for me will never miss me, she added. And I realize this moment is bigger than me. No matter what happens in my life, I try to accept it for what it is, whether its winning or losing. I realize even with hard work, sometimes you may fall short. I worked so hard for this moment. But at the end of the day, I feel this is part of being in sport and representing my country and the Muslim community. So I always end every single match with the same sentiment, and thats that Im thankful to God for the experience, for allowing me to even be present in this moment.She was smiling now.I think this was written for me. It just fell the way it did.Muhammad, who grew up in Maplewood, New Jersey, before attending Duke University, still has another chance to win a medal here in Rio when the U.S. women compete in the team sabre competition. But she hasnt elaborated much on her plans beyond that.The witnessing she did over the past two years, in particular, pushing back against the anti-Muslim rhetoric that has heated up around the world, both within and without the Muslim community, and her message of tolerance earned her widespread attention. Everyone from sports networks to political figures, womens organizations to religious groups sought her out. Entertainers such as Stephen Colbert and Ellen DeGeneres put her on TV, President Obama asked her to take part in a discussion panel when he made his first visit as president to an American mosque, and Time magazine named her among its 100 most influential people of 2016 and elaborated on her story.But nobody tells the story as well as Muhammad herself.Monday, she patiently, calmly, sometimes humorously recapped parts of it again in the cattle-chute media zone underneath Carioca Arena 3 for the latest wave of people whod never heard it before. Wholesale LeBron Shoes. She stressed how honored she was to represent the U.S. and the transformative effect sports has had on her life. She talked movingly about how she was struck at Fridays Opening Ceremony by sports beautiful ability to bring people of different cultures together under this umbrella for one purpose. ... I think thats the most important thing I take away from my whole experience at the Olympics. This whole message of tolerance.She also spoke of hearing from girls on social media who say she has inspired them to consider doing things theyve been discouraged from doing. She only obliquely alluded to the various examples she has given over these many months of how she herself has been discriminated against for wearing her hijab. (There was a stranger in Times Square who asked her if shes a terrorist who intends to blow something up; the South by Southwest security worker who smirked when she declined to remove her hijab while going through the medical detector, even though she explained she wore it for religious reasons. Yeah, well, youre in Texas now, he said.) Monday, she preferred to dwell on the takeaway she hopes people get.Muhammad was asked to name the biggest misconceptions she still fights, and she said: That someone is forcing me to wear hijab. That Im oppressed. That I dont have a voice. Anyone who knows me knows Im very vocal. ... Very comfortable expressing myself. She stressed what shes doing is not just to challenge misconceptions outside the Muslim community, but also within the Muslim community. I want to break cultural norms. I want to show girls that its important to be active, its important to be involved.Has she been successful changing peoples minds?I hope so, she said. I dont know necessarily what is going through everyones mind at this moment.Unless she reconsiders plans to retire from fencing, her Olympic career will end after the sabre team competition later this week.She hasnt said what she intends to do after the Olympics, beyond continuing to run her online clothing business, Louella, which makes modest clothing for religiously observant women. A couple of questions about the coming elections in November didnt tease out any of her plans, either. But its hard to imagine her sitting quietly on the sidelines given how Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump - a target of hers before -- has called for a national registry for all Muslims, much like some convicted criminals must now do. Muhammad has already called such talk a throwback to dark times in our nations history.It is hard to imagine her fading away quietly now.I think anyone who listens to the news reports at all would realize the importance of having a Muslim woman on Team USA, she said. Its not just any team, its the United States of America. And in light of whats going on in our country, the political thoughts that we hear about -- all these things -- I feel kind of circle back to my presence on Team USA and, again, just challenging those misconceptions that people have about who the Muslim woman is.Its almost like how could you not see that Muslims are like any other group, you know? We are conservatives and we are liberals, there are women who cover and women who dont. There are African-American Muslims, there are white Muslims, there are Arab Muslims. There are so many different types of Muslims. There are so many Muslim countries that have had women as their heads of state. Those are things that I want people to be aware of.If Muhammad is right -- if this indeed has all been written for her, and things intended for her will not miss her -- its smart to stay tuned. Her time in the 2016 Olympic spotlight is almost over. But Ibtihaj Muhammad is not the kind of woman whos inclined to sit on the sidelines for long. Already, she has made the conversation about race and religion in America more intelligent with her voice and example. It will be fascinating to see what she undertakes next. ' ' ' 
Skateboarding and surfing are two of the five sports which could be added to the Olympics for the 2020 Games in Tokyo. Comprar Air Jordan 1 Baratas . Karate, sport climbing and baseball/softball are the other three sports proposed by the International Olympic Committees executive board.A statement from the IOC read: If approved at the 129th IOC session in Rio de Janeiro in August, the change would be the most comprehensive evolution of the Olympic programme in modern history. The sports, the statement added, offer a key focus on youth, which is at the heart of the Games vision for Tokyo 2020. They represent a combination of well-established and emerging sports with significant popularity in Japan and beyond.Future Games would not necessarily have to include the same five sports, which have been selected by the host city. Surfing could also be part of the 2020 programme The statement said the sports and athlete quotas for the five sports - a total of 18 events and 474 athletes for Tokyo - are an addition and will not take places away from athletes in existing Olympic sports.Discussions on the event programme in the existing 28 Olympic sports for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 are ongoing, and will be finalised by the IOC Executive Board in mid-2017, the statement added.

With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that. Howard scored 18 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, including 13 of 19 free throws in a 2 1/2-minute stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111. Keke Rosberg is well known for not interfering in the racing affairs of his son. In any case, there is not much he can say when comparing his championship finale in 1982 with Nicos encounter this weekend. The only vague similarity would appear to be that both races were in a desert region: father in Nevada; son in Abu Dhabi. Otherwise, nothing stacks up.Keke had won just a single race during a bizarre season; Nico, so far, has claimed nine during a much longer and more predictable campaign. Even when it comes to similar strategic necessities, their respective tactical methods are diametrically opposed.Nico, despite having the points advantage, has eschewed a conservative approach and says he intends to treat this weekend like any other by going for the win. Keke only needed to finish fifth (or higher) back in the day when P5 was worth two points. And that was his sole intention - particularly after qualifying sixth.Caution was the watchword in the Williams pit (there was no garage as such, all of the teams being housed in a nearby convention centre). With the unimaginative track defined by concrete walls zigzagging through a car park at the back of Caesars Palace, it seemed sensible to accept that first lap skirmishes could result in damage (even allowing for no nose wings at all, never mind the aerodynamic sculptures hanging off the front of todays F1 cars).Pit stops were not part of the race strategy in 1982 but the Williams mechanics could be seen diligently practising changes of suspension parts, the theory being that they could pull in Rosberg if necessary, carry out repairs and still finish fifth. In such an event, a lap chart would be even more essential than usual.There was no computerised timing 34 years ago. Frank kept the Williams lap chart as he sat at the pit wall. With so much riding on the result in Las Vegas, however, the boss needed to supervise all aspects of the running of this race - which ruled out keeping an accurate lap chart.On race morning, I had wandered over to the Williams motorhome (a Winnebago; not the pre-fabricated edifices we see today) to have a brief chat with Keke who, in tee shirt and jeans, was chilling outside and enjoying a cigarette. Frank was anything but relaxed; a human dynamo restlessly moving around. Looking tense, he beckoned me inside the motorhome. Thinking I was about to be interrogated over something I had written, I was not prepared for wwhat came next. Air Jordan 1 Baratas Online. Dyou think youd be able to keep our lap chart? I mean, what do you say? I kept a lap chart at every race (it was the only means of recording the story). But to do it here, by the Williams pit wall, sun blazing down, the championship depending on it? You must be joking.And yet I heard myself saying Okay, Frank while thinking: What the **** are you doing! No pressure, then.Frank took out his pen and ticked Lap Chart: Maurice on a long list. I was glad he had asked on race morning. Had it been the day before, I wouldnt have slept a wink.The bonus, of course, was to be right at the heart of this race and championship. Journalists were not allowed in the Williams pit. And there I was, standing in the Holy of Holies alongside the boss, Patrick Head, Frank Dernie, Charlie Crichton-Stuart and chief mechanic, Alan Challis. But, rather than enjoy it, I had just one thought: Dont screw up!I was dreading the sight of that white Williams coming into the pits but relieved to see Keke finish the first lap in one piece. He was down in seventh place and out of the points. No matter; there were another 74 laps to go.Stayed calm, Rosberg bided his time, even when overtaken by John Watson, Kekes main championship rival. The McLaren driver needed to be at least second, with Rosberg out of the points. Wattie quickly moved ahead of Mario Andrettis Ferrari, everyone then shuffling forward one place when Riccardo Patrese retired his Brabham.Some time later, as Watson moved into third, Frank peered over my shoulder. The lap chart said Rosberg was fifth - which, fortunately, agreed with Franks assessment of progress. Now all Keke had to do was stay there; easier said than done, Rosberg a few laps earlier having narrowly missed Andretti when the Ferraris rear suspension failed.With two laps to go, Williams moved across the pit and quietly instructed his sponsorship coordinator (and mate) Crichton-Stuart to tell Alan [Challis] to get the flags ready. It was the first time all week that Frank was prepared to concede his man was about to win the title. Challis appeared with the Union Jack and Saudi flag (in deference to the teams main sponsor) and the perspiring but ecstatic team waved their man home. I duly marked car number 6 in fifth place on the chart.Job done. ' ' ' 
OAKLAND, Calif. Authentic Nike Zoom Basketball Shoes . -- Cubs manager Joe Maddon thought Jorge Soler might get a jolt out of returning to the majors after spending two months recovering from a nagging hamstring injury, including a two-week stint in the minors.Boy, was Maddon right.Soler hit a three-run home run in his first at-bat after being activated off the disabled list, Jon Lester pitched seven strong innings, and Chicago beat the Oakland Athletics 7-2 on Friday night.Sometimes a guy just needs to show up and then he gets the adrenaline going on, and that was a big hit, Maddon said. I didnt think it was high enough to go out. It was out so quickly.Dexter Fowler also homered while Javier Baez added a two-run double to help Chicago win its fifth straight. The Cubs also improved to a major league-best 67-41.Lester (12-4) pitched for the As over the final two months of the 2014 season after getting traded from Boston. He returned to the Coliseum for the first time since then and faced a distinctly different Oakland team than the one he left.Any time youve been on the home side and come back as a visitor its different, said Lester, who had eight strikeouts, and allowed two runs on nine hits.I enjoyed pitching here. I wish it turned out a little different but I was with a good team and great fans. Its unbelievable to come here as a home player as opposed to a visitor.Soler, out since June 6 with a hamstring injury, celebrated his return to the majors with his home run in the first inning off As starter Dillon Overton (1-3).That capped a four-run burst by the Cubs that included Fowlers fifth game-opening home run this season.Soler also reached on a fielders choice and scored on Baezs double in the third. Jason Heyward added an RBI single in the inning to help extend Chicagos lead to 7-0.I wasnt feeling any pressure, I just wanted to put a good swing on the ball, Soler said through an interpreter. I was a little bit frustrated being out at least two months but I just wanted to keep the positive attitude and come here and try to do my best.Brett Eibner, called up from the minors earlier in the day, homered against Lester leading off the sixth for Oakland. Marcus Semien added an RBI single.ROOKIE ROUGHED UPOverton allowed seven runs in three innings but suffered his third consecutive loss. The rookie left-hander is winless since beating the Los Angeles Angels in his major league debut June 25. Believe it or not I was actually hitting my spots better tonight, Overton said. They were just hitting everything I threw. Youre going to have days like that You just have to work with it and keep grounded.TRAINERS ROOMCubs: Maddon said the plan is to ease Soler back in and get him some defensive work in the outfield before the team faces another NL team on Aug. 11. ...

Clearance Nike Zoom Shoes . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins got the ball on the wing, made a nifty spin move and then let go with a soft floater from about 10 feet that swished through the net in Allen Fieldhouse. Cheap Nike Zoom Training Shoes . But the quarterback hopes to stay involved in football after officially calling it quits Tuesday. "Id love to look at those opportunities as they arise," Pierce said in an interview from his Winnipeg eatery. . The showiest items on Calgarys lot were forwards Mike Cammalleri and Lee Stempniak. Both will be unrestricted free agents this summer. METAIRIE, La. -- Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints waited until the 11th hour. But they finally agreed to a contract extension Wednesday -- four days before the quarterbacks self-imposed Week 1 deadline.The extension was announced as a five-year deal but contains an automatic void at two years, sources told ESPNs Ed Werder. That means Brees is contractually committed to the Saints for only the 2016 and 2017 seasons.?His $20 million salary this season and $24.25 million for next season -- a total of $44.25 million -- is fully guaranteed, the sources said.The deal also includes a no-trade clause and forbids the Saints from using their franchise tag on the quarterback. In essence, the Saints get Brees under contract for one additional season, but by spreading the contract over five years, they significantly reduce Brees $30 million cap hit for 2016, which was the highest for any player in NFL history.The extension reduces Brees cap number from an NFL-record $30 million to $17.25 million for 2016, sources told Werder.Brees said Wednesday he is humbled and honored to continue his journey with Saints. He said both sides are very happy with the contracts structure and wants to finish his career in New Orleans.Ill be here as long as theyll have me, he said.Brees said the contact process is probably a bit more complicated than it should be but said he understands the job everyone has to do. One thing everyone is very much aligned with is what puts this team in the best position to win, he said. The salary-cap savings for the Saints was an important aspect of the deal for him.My approach is the same regardless, regardless of whether I have a five-year deal or I have a one-year deal. In my mind, youre always playing on one-year deals, he said. Playing on one-game deals, you know? I mean, youve gotta prove it each and every week. Youre only as good as your next performance. So that will always be mindset.Brees, 37, acknowledged that he would have preferred a long-term deal.I plan to play for longer than two years, so yeah, I think my mindset going into this was to bee able to secure a deal that would take me for as long as I plan on playing, he said. Wholesale Nike Zoom. But this is what was in the best interest of the team. And so thats why it was a two-year deal.This is Brees third contract with the Saints after he originally signed with the team in 2006. In 2012, he became the highest-paid player in NFL history to that point, thanks to his five-year, $100 million contract.Brees was headed into the final year of his previous contract.His decade in New Orleans has been the most prolific of any quarterback in NFL history. His 48,555 yards and 348 touchdown passes are the most of any quarterback in any 10-year span, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.Brees has won exactly 100 games with the Saints -- including the only Super Bowl victory in franchise history, a 31-17 win over the Indianapolis Colts after the 2009 season.He could pass Peyton Manning for No. 1 on the NFLs all-time passing yardage (71,940) and passing touchdown (539) lists before his next deal is up. Hes on pace to do so within three or four years.Brees ranks fourth in NFL history with 60,903 passing yards and will likely pass Dan Marino for third in Week 2. He and Tom Brady are tied for third in NFL history with 428 touchdown passes.And he is still thriving at age 37. Brees has led the NFL in passing yards in four of the past five seasons -- including last year, when he threw for 4,870 yards in just 15 games played.Re-signing him was easier said than done for a Saints team that has been spinning its wheels at 7-9 in each of the past two seasons, stretching the salary cap to its limit.Re-upping with Brees signals a desire to get back into playoff contention quickly rather than going into a full rebuilding mode. Because of Brees age, it was expected that the length of his contract and the total amount of guaranteed money was would be sticking points in negotiations between Saints general manager Mickey Loomis and Brees agent, Tom Condon.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- The four golfers?in contention for the?Race to Dubai?title were upstaged by Lee Westwood in the first round of the DP World Tour Championship on Thursday. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Authentic .Westwood shot a 6-under 66 in swirling winds to take a one-stroke lead at the European Tours season-ending event in Dubai.Some days you feel like theres a lot of birdies out there but today I think was a pretty stiff test, Westwood said.Danny Willett and Alex Noren were best-placed of the players bidding to finish the season as Europes No. 1 after shooting 71s on the Earth course of Jumeirah Golf Estates, while Henrik Stenson -- the leader in the Race to Dubai standings -- shot 72.Rory McIlroy started the week as the big outsider to win the Race to Dubai and his chances are even slimmer after shooting 75, ending a run of 28 straight rounds of par or lower at the World Tour Championship.Should Stenson win, he will be Europes No. 1 for the second time in four years. He could even finish atop the standings with a top-eight finish, provided Willett doesnt win or finish second and Noren doesnt win.The 43-year-old Westwood, who was the winner of the inaugural edition of World Tour Championship in 2009, made just one bogey -- on No. 12 -- on a day when winds made scoring difficult. He had three birdies on the front nine and four on the back nine.It was all good, really. I played lovely, said Westwood, playing without his regular caddie Billy Foster who is out with a knee injury. Hit a lot of fairways, a lot of good iron shots, putted nicely and, you know, didnt make too many mistakes out there.Frances Julien Quesne and Belgiums Nicolas Colsaerts were tied for second place after 67s, while No. 12 Spaniard Sergio Garcia was tied fourth after a 68, along with Italian Francesco Molinari and Dutchman Joost Luiten.Stenson made just one birdie and one bogey, being denied a closing birdie on the 18th after his putt from six feet lipped out.It wasnt my best day. I played very average, Stenson said. Id say the good putts I hit didnt go in, and the bad ones certainly didnt.

There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Theres the man who isnt big enough, the former first-round draft pick who hasnt lived up to his potential and the record-setting college back brought in to replace them both. Then, there is this question: With Peyton Manning at quarterback, does it really matter who winds up as the featured runner for the Denver Broncos? Thats the puzzle Ronnie Hillman, Knowshon Moreno and Montee Ball are sorting out during training camp. When the first depth chart of camp was released over the weekend, it was Hillman, who put on 20 pounds in the off-season, listed at No. 1. He was followed by Ball, the second-round draft pick out of Wisconsin, and Moreno, the 12th overall pick of the 2009 draft. "You want to be that guy thats able to play every down," said Hillman, a third-round pick last year who was largely viewed as a change-of-pace back. "Thats what I work toward. Its been my emphasis and hopefully that happens." The whole notion that the Broncos need a featured back might seem laughable in an offence featuring a Hall of Fame-bound quarterback who is showing every sign of being completely healthy. Back in January against Baltimore, it was no joke. The Broncos had a seven-point lead with 3:12 left and were in position to run out the clock with two first downs. Hillman got the first one with runs of 8 and 5 yards, but then gained a total of three yards on his next three carries. Moreno had left the game with a knee injury and Denvers biggest back at the time, Willis McGahee, was already long gone with a season-ending knee injury. That left it to Hillman, who, at 180 pounds, didnt have the girth to push the pile. Coach John Fox opted against trying to throw for the first down and so, the Broncos gave the ball back, gave up the tying touchdown and, soon after, were 38-35 upset losers to the Ravens. A few days later, Fox conceded that, yes, he wished hed had that big back to milk the clock. Hillman got the message and packed on 20 pounds in the off-season. "It wasnt the taking of the hits that was the problem," he said. "You can always take hits at any size, but Im just more comfortable." Not leaving anything to chance despite Hillmans weight gain, the Broncos targeted a running back in the off-season and used their second-round pick to take Ball, whose credentials have "every-down back" written all over them. He posted NCAA records with 5,140 yards and 83 touchdowns in four years at Wisconsin. Ball has gotten work with the first team during training camp, but is officially listed second on a depth chart Fox described as nothing more than sometthing the Broncos put out "because the league makes us. Air Max Baratas España. " "Ive most definitely seen that, but I think thats right because Ronnies done a great job," Ball said. "Hes been doing a great job this camp and he most definitely deserves it right now, but like I said, Im most definitely going to try to take it." By all appearances, Moreno has the biggest hill to climb. It didnt go unnoticed in the off-season when executive vice-president John Elway consistently forgot to mention the former first-round draft picks name while discussing the Broncos runners. But Moreno is here, albeit listed third on the depth chart and practicing with the third team. Last year, he started the season overcoming issues from a 2011 knee injury and was inactive for eight of the first 10 games. When McGahee went down, however, Moreno got the starting job. He was efficient, not spectacular, rushing for 510 yards over the final six games until going down in the playoffs. He worked hard in the off-season even though a lot seemed stacked against him. "I was in there with the strength staff and with the training staff every day working on it," Moreno said. "It didnt take that long. It was a grind." Others competing for spots in Denvers backfield include rookie C.J. Anderson, Lance Ball and Jeremiah Johnson. But heading into Thursdays preseason opener at San Francisco, its Hillman holding the top spot with Bell pushing him and Moreno trying to stay in the mix. "No guy in our position doesnt want to start," Hillman said. "You can see it as inspiration, motivation, but for me, its just to hold them off because those guys are good." Notes: After OT Orlando Franklin left practice with a hip injury, the Broncos first-team line looked like this, from right to left: Louis Vasquez, Ryan Lilja, Manny Ramirez, Zane Beadles, Chris Clark. Of those five, only Beadles is in the spot the team envisioned for him for the start of the season. Foxs reaction to all the shuffling: "Im pretty pleased where we are." ... TE Joel Dreessen missed practice to have his left knee scoped. Dreessen first hurt the knee while practicing on the Broncos artificial turf during the spring. He is expected to miss the rest of training camp. ... WR Andre Caldwell, fighting for a spot on the team, had two long catches from QB Peyton Manning. ... At the end of practice, the Broncos first-team defence completely stymied the offence during a 2-minute drill. Manning threw four straight incompletions, capped by a drop by WR Demaryius Thomas.

Rob Nelson of ESPN Stats & Information revisits the worst bad beats from the weekends gambling action. Early Wynn Jersey .?Closing lines are courtesy of Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, and pick percentages are via Wunderdog Sports.SaturdayMichigan Wolverines at Michigan State SpartansClosing line: Over/under 50Michigan closed as a 24.5-point favorite in this game, marking the third-largest spread in this rivalry dating back 40 seasons. Michigan State stayed within that number the entire game, and ended up covering easily. But those who took the under could have done without a pair of late scores by the Spartans.Michigan led 30-10 with less than eight minutes left as Michigan State faced a fourth-and-5 from its own 46-yard line. Reserve quarterback Brian Lewerke hooked up with R.J. Shelton for a 34-yard completion on fourth down, and then found Monty Madaris for a touchdown on the next play. That made the score 30-17, and it stayed that way until the final seconds. The Spartans got the ball back at their own 25-yard line with 27 seconds left and those on the under just needed one stop. Unfortunately for them, Michigan State marched right down the field and scored a touchdown with one second left to send the total over.In a play that might be shown at the Heisman Trophy ceremony in December, Jabrill Peppers returned a fumble back on the following two-point conversion. That will serve as an unfriendly reminder of this bad beat for those who took the under.Final score: Michigan 32, Michigan State 23 (game goes over)Kansas State Wildcats at Iowa State CyclonesClosing line: Kansas State -6Over 60 percent of the action was on Kansas State to cover the 6-point spread at Iowa State, who came into the game winless in conference play and 1-6 overall. It was looking good for those on the Wildcats, who led 31-10 entering the fourth quarter.But it turned out to be a fourth quarter to forget if you had Kansas State. The Wildcats were outscored 16-0 in the final 15 minutes, capped off by a Jacob Park-to-Deshaunte Jones touchdown on fourth down with less than a minute left to cover the spread for the Cyclones. This marked the most points Kansas State had been outscored in a fourth quarter since 2004.Final score: Kansas State 31, Iowa State 26 (Iowa State covers)Miami Hurricanes at Notre Dame Fighting IrishClosing line: O/U 58The 61 percent who took the over in this one are still wondering how Notre Dame didnt score a touchdown on its final drive.With the game tied at 27 late in the fourth quarter, those on the over needed a touchdown to cash their bets. It appeared they were going to get their touchdown when Notre Dames Durham Smythe was about to score, but instead fumbled at the goal line. The Fighting Irish recovered and had first-and-goal at the Miami 1-yard line after an offsides call on the Hurricanes. But they couldnt punch it in and had to settle for a Justin Yoon 23-yard field goal with 30 seconds left. Miami ran out of time on their final drive and the total ended up going under by one point.Final score: Notre Dame 30, Miami 27 (game goes under)Baylor Bears at Texas LonghornsClosing line: O/U 73You couldnt have asked for a better start if you took the over. Less than six minutes in, the score was 14-14 and it looked like those bets could win before halftime.The scoring cooled off, with no points until a Texas safety midway through the second quarter. Each team added a touchdown and the Longhorns led 23-21 at halftime, with the total still on pace to go over. But the second half slowed down significantly and after a Trent Domingue 39-yard field goal, Texas led 35-34 with 46 seconds left. It wasnt looking good for those on the over, who needed a touchdown to win their bet. It appeared they got their touchdown when Texas scooped and scored a Seth Russell fumble to make the score 41-34. But in a questionable decision, the refs ruled that Russells forward progress had stopped and the touchdown did not count. Two plays later, the game ended and over 73 was a losing bet.Final score: Texas 35, Baylor 34 (game goes under)SundayPhiladelphia Eagles at Dallas CowboysClosing line: Cowboys -5For a third straight week, the Sunday night game went to overtime and ended up as a bad beat for gamblers.The Eagles took a 23-13 lead early in the fourth quarter, as those who took the underdog were feeling great. After all, if you factor in the spread, the Eagles were up 15. After forcing a three-and-out, Philadelphia got the ball back but Wendell Smallwood fumbled on the first play of the Eagles drive to give it back to Dallas. It all went downhill for the Eagles after that. The Cowboys scored the next 10 points to send the game to overtime. Dallas won the toss and marched right down the field, capping off the drive with a Jason Witten 5-yard touchdown catch to win by six.Final score: Cowboys 29, Eagles 23 in OT (Cowboys cover) Bill Melton Jersey .

The NBA and the Charlotte Hornets issued a joint statement Thursday expressing doubt that possible changes to a North Carolina law that limits protections for LGBT people would go far enough and saying they do not endorse the current version of the bill. Discount NBA Jerseys .We have been engaged in dialogue with numerous groups at the city and state levels, but we do not endorse the version of the bill that we understand is currently before the legislature, the league and the Hornets said in the joint statement.Pressure to change the law, known as House Bill 2, has come from several quarters, including NBA commissioner Adam Silver, who said earlier this month that there needed to be progress on changing the law this summer to ensure that the league keeps its 2017 All-Star Game in Charlotte.Republican lawmakers on Thursday were mapping out the end of the session and weighing possible adjustments to House Bill 2, but there was no appetite to change the provision requiring transgender people to use restrooms corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates in schools, universities and many other public buildings.The law also excludes sexual orientation and gender identity from statewide anti-discrimination protections.We remain committed to our guiding principles of inclusion, mutual respect and equal protections for all, the statement said. We continue to believe that constructive engagement with all sides is the right path forward.The league and the Hornets said no new decision has been made regarding the 2017 All-Star Game.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Among the first things you hear at freshman orientation is the list of notable people who came before you and walked the halls of your school. Using the Way-Too-Early Top 25 as our guide, we identified some of the most interesting alumni from each of the top 25 teams institutions.1. Duke Blue Devils: Drew RosenhausThe flamboyant sports agents next question response to most of the questions at a news conference with former Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens demonstrated his calculated control of the message. Thats why so many players hire the Duke Law graduate. Yes, Drew Rosenhaus, who became an agent when he was 22, cares about Drew Rosenhaus. (He wrote a book called Next Question: An NFL Super Agents Proven Game Plan For Business Success after the Owens news conference went viral.) But he also fights for his players, even if that requires unorthodox tactics. Remember when he called Willis McGahee, who had recently suffered a knee injury, during the 2003 NFL draft so GMs would think McGahee was talking to multiple teams? -- Myron Medcalf2. Villanova Wildcats: Don McLeanWere using the term alum expansively here: McLean attended Villanova for just a few months (he later earned a degree at Iona), but his brief stay in Philadelphia proved crucial to the development of a certain elliptical and allusive hymn to loss and alienation that youve probably sung loudly in group settings at closing time. You might even say something touched McLean deep inside one November day in 1963. Combined with the deaths years earlier of his father and, most famously, Buddy Holly, the tragedy that fall day sent the aspiring musician on a headlong flight from higher education. Believing music alone would save his mortal soul, McLean caught the last train for the coast (so to speak). The rest is history. -- John Gasaway3. Kentucky Wildcats: John T. ScopesHes no Ashley Judd, but then again, Judds surname isnt linked to one of the most famous trials in American history. The name Scopes, Kentucky Class of 1924, is. At the ripe old age of 24, Scopes willingly served as the defendant against the state of Tennessee and admitted that he taught evolution as a substitute biology teacher, in direct violation of the states Butler Act. Though represented by the famous Clarence Darrow, Scopes was found guilty -- many figured that was a foregone conclusion -- and fined $100, but the impact of the trial lived on for years and spurred the debate between creationism and evolution. -- Dana ONeil4. Kansas Jayhawks: Harold ArlinIf youve ever listened to a baseball or college football game on the radio or needed up-to-date breaking news, you might want to thank Arlin. He was one of the first, if not the first, full-time radio broadcasters. His first program announced the results of the 1920 presidential election (won by Warren G. Harding.) He also delved into sports broadcasts. -- C.L. Brown5. Virginia Cavaliers: Edgar Allan PoeThe iconic Rotunda on the Charlottesville campus immediately brings university founder Thomas Jefferson to mind, but because the third president was the founder -- not a student at Virginia -- well go with Edgar Allan Poe. Poe attended one semester before dropping out because of a lack of financial resources. All in favor of the Cavs adopting the raven as their unofficial mascot? Better yet, why not use Alan Parsons Projects musical adaptation of the poem to intimidate opponents? -- Sam Strong6. North Carolina Tar Heels: Stuart ScottYou could insert Michael Jordan into this slot, especially with his recent charitable work and statements on social issues. But the creator of Boo-Yah! and owner of a rare on-camera flare mimicked by a generation of broadcasters who now feel empowered to infuse reporting with hip-hop references and phrases is as interesting as any North Carolina alum. His career at ESPN is still celebrated, in proof of his impact following his death in 2015 at age 49. -- Medcalf7. Oregon Ducks: Ty BurrellIn the late 1980s, Burrell was an obscure high school football prospect from Southern Oregon who was trying to decide whether to walk on with the Ducks. Faced with a decision between sports and theater, Burrell opted for the latter and -- in keeping with this pieces recurring theme -- never quite graduated from UO. Nevertheless, the school proudly claims him as one of its own, and Burrell popped up courtside in Anaheim as his beloved Ducks defeated Duke in the 2016 Sweet 16. Phil Dunphys tastes might run more toward cheerleading and magic, but Burrells devotion to the Oregon football and basketball families knows few modern equivalents. -- Gasaway8. Wisconsin Badgers: Jim LovellWe could go with Andy Katz here, but theres a small crater on the side of the moon named after Lovell, so he gets the edge. The commander of the ill-fated Apollo 13, Lovell spent two years at Wisconsin before transferring to the Naval Academy, but the school counts him as a distinguished alum. Thats understandable, considering it was Lovell who quite literally steered his crew safely back to Earth after their 1970 mission suffered a catastrophic accident that robbed the vessel of all oxygen. Using his watch as a timer, Lovell essentially drove around the moon and back to Earth. He is one of only three men to go to the moon twice, yet he is the only one of those who never walked on it. -- ONeil9. Xavier Musketeers: Russell Goings Jr.If not for a knee injury, Goings could have made his mark with the Buffalo Bills in the NFL. Instead, he was injured before the season started and never played professionally. He made his mark on Wall Street, where he owned First Harlem Securities, the second African-American brokerage to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange. As a stockbroker, Goings inspired a generation of African-Americans to invest. -- Brown10. Michigan State Spartans: Julie Aigner-ClarkWith an enrollment that exceeds 50,000, theres a notable Spartan in nearly every professional and athletic field. How about Aigner-Clark? A 1988 graduate and former teacher, she went from stay-at-home mom to founder of Baby Einstein products. What was once a $5,000 start-up in her basement turned into a $25 million sale five years later. -- Strong11. Indiana Hoosiers: Jamie HynemanThe co-host of Mythbusters on the Discovery Channel has a degree in Russian language and linguistics from Indiana University. For 13 years, Mythbusters dazzled audiences by exploring myths from films and folklore, and it aired its final episode in May. A favorite topic? Perhaps the episode that focused on whether it was better to use an ax or firearm to protect yourself during a zombie apocalypse. -- Medcalf12. Arizona Wildcats: Kourtney KardashianThis will sound entirely implausible, but there was a time when someone named Kardashian could attend college in relative anonymity. One such time was 2002, and while fellow UA attendees Nicole Richie and Jason Gardner were attracting their fair share of attention, Kourtney kept her nose to the grindstone and earned a degree in theater arts. A few years later, her little sister, Kim, became famous, and, well, the family has been fairly high-profile ever since. Still, Kourtney has bragging rights at every Kardashian gathering, as she is the only one of her sisters (so far) who completed a bbachelors degree. Cheap NBA Store. . -- Gasaway13. Louisville Cardinals: Frank NeuhauserGladiolus. Thats the word that earned Neuhauser a parade, a bicycle, $500 worth of gold coins and a meeting with President Calvin Coolidge. Long before he earned a degree from Louisville in 1934, Neuhauser found fame as the first winner of the National Spelling Bee. Just 11 years old when he won, he properly spelled gladiolus for the championship. He went on to earn an engineering degree from Louisville, enlist in the Navy in World War II and work as a patent attorney for General Electric. But he remained most famous for his earliest accomplishment. At later spelling bees, kids frequently asked for his autograph. He spelled everything correctly. -- ONeil14. Purdue Boilermakers: Orville RedenbacherWalking on the moon sounds cool and all, but Neil Armstrong isnt the most interesting Purdue alum. Its Redenbacher. At last check, popcorn is still delicious. And Redenbachers brand has transformed from the days of popping over a stove with the aluminum foil rising to pressing buttons on a microwave and hearing the kernels take shape. -- Brown15. West Virginia Mountaineers: Steve HarveyThe most interesting West Virginia alumnus is ... The Andy Griffith Show star and Morgantown native Don Knotts. Wait. The first runner-up is Don Knotts. The most interesting West Virginia alumnus is ... Steve Harvey. The comedian and TV host made waves when he announced an incorrect winner for Miss Universe earlier this year, a flub that raised his profile and revealed some interesting details about his early struggles to make it big, which included being homeless for three years and stealing fuel to get to a gig. -- Strong16. Gonzaga Bulldogs: Bing CrosbyCrosby doesnt get enough love in conversations about music legends, in part because Frank Sinatra was such a titan during his era. But Crosby had a more impressive career. The Gonzaga graduates White Christmas set a Guinness World Record for best-selling single, with more than 100 million copies sold. Crosby also won an Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in 1944s Going My Way. Not even Will Smith has matched that combination of on-screen and musical success. -- Medcalf17. UCLA Bruins: Tom AndersonUCLAs alumni list is dotted with Hollywood names, including James Franco, who agreed to speak at the 2009 commencement before some combination of student protest and scheduling conflicts forced him to back out. But the better choice is someone many of us feel a connection to: Tom Anderson, otherwise known as Myspace Tom. The social networks co-founder, who was everyones first friend, whether you wanted him or not, has a degree in Critical Film Studies from Westwoods UC campus. -- Strong18. Maryland Terrapins: Liz LemonStrictly speaking, Liz Lemon is a fictional character, and theres no shortage of celebrated, real-life Terrapin grads out there (including but not limited to Carly Fiorina, Jeff Kinney, Connie Chung, Google co-founder Sergey Brin and David Simon). That said, what book of rules decrees that a list such as this must be limited to nonfictional beings? Surely the protagonist of 30 Rock merits inclusion in our top 25, if for no other reason than that she managed to fund her higher education in College Park through the innovative use of a partial competitive jazz dance scholarship. That and her killer rendition of 99 Luftballons earn Ms. Lemon a richly deserved spot among the illustrious graduates featured here. -- Gasaway19. Saint Marys Gaels: Brother Timothy DienerA science teacher by trade, Diener found a new calling in 1933, when prohibition ended, and became a wine chemist. Two years later, he moved to Mont La Salle and joined the De La Salle Christian Brothers. While the Brothers believed in vows of poverty, they were savvy businessmen. With Diener leading the way, Christian Brothers turned the altar wine produced during prohibition into a huge commercial success. The winerys success ultimately helped underwrite Saint Marys. -- ONeil20. Creighton Bluejays: Leo RyanRyan represented Californias 11th District in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1973-78. During that time, he co-sponsored a bill that attempted to provide oversight to the CIAs foreign dealings. He went undercover in Folsom Prison to investigate prison conditions while overseeing a committee on prison reforms. Ryan was shot and killed after he traveled to Guyana to investigate human rights violations by the Peoples Temple and its leader, Jim Jones, in Jamestown. -- Brown21. Rhode Island Rams: Masta AceDuval Clear, aka Masta Ace, is a hip-hop pioneer who dropped critical lyrics on the Juice Crews 1988 hit The Symphony, one of the greatest hip-hop songs of all time. A jam strong enough that it can lift your soul/Im the originator, and my rhymes are made of gold. The Rhode Island graduate influenced other emcees with his delivery. Eminem said, When I heard Masta Ace, like every time I would listen to him, he would make me wanna rap. -- Medcalf22. Cincinnati Bearcats: William Howard TaftTafts résumé is so ostentatiously impressive that Yale and Cincinnati both claim him. (For the record, he received his undergraduate degree at the former institution and his law degree at the latter.) For the sake of discussion, say there have been 550 million Americans alive at some point since the country started inaugurating presidents in 1789. Not only is Taft one of just 43 people to serve as president (1909-13), but he is also the only one of those 43 to preside as chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court (1921-1930). A CV such as that -- arguably one of the most accomplished in our nations history -- must have made for some jolly good boasting at class reunions in New Haven and in Cincy. -- Gasaway23. Florida State Seminoles: Burt ReynoldsBuddy, as he was known during his college days, was a promising football player who many thought could have a pro career. But Reynolds injured his knee his freshman season, missed his sophomore year recuperating and was done in entirely when a car accident in 1957 aggravated the problem. Bored and recuperating, he took some courses at Palm Beach Junior College, including an acting class. He was a natural and was awarded a summer scholarship to a playhouse in New York. Had he not hurt his knee trying to be a Seminole, wed have no Smokey and the Bandit or Cannonball Run. -- ONeil24. UConn Huskies: Bobby MoynihanYou might not recognize his name, but you probably know his face. Hes the guy who has been making you laugh as a cast member on Saturday Night Live since 2008. Moynihans impressions have ranged from New Jersey governor Chris Christie to Star Wars creator George Lucas to actor Danny DeVito. -- Brown25. Syracuse Orange: Aaron SorkinIn the sporting world, Syracuses S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications has produced countless TV analysts and personalities. But its hard to pass on screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. Sorkin, who spoke at the Oranges 2012 commencement, has a credit list that includes films such as A Few Good Men and The Social Network and TV shows such as The West Wing, The Newsroom and Sports Night. -- Strong ' ' '
