CHICAGO -- Despite being eliminated from the playoffs, the Kansas City Royals are not expecting to be playing in any meaningless games until spring training begins in February. Chris Kunitz Canada Jersey . Jeremy Guthrie pitched seven strong innings, and David Lough hit a two-run homer to lead the Royals to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night. One day after being eliminated from the post-season, the Royals earned their 84th win, their most since 1993. The Royals 6-0 loss to Seattle on Wednesday, combined with victories from all three teams ahead of them in the AL wild-card standings, officially eliminated them from playoff contention. Guthrie (15-12) became the Royals third 15-game winner since 1997. He gave up two runs and four hits, striking out four and walking one. Royals closer Greg Holland pitched a scoreless ninth for his 46th save in 49 chances as the Royals ended a two-game losing streak. Holland set a franchise record for saves, surpassing Dan Quisenberry (1983) and Jeff Montgomery (1993). "Our guys know that Guthrie was going for his 15th win, they know Jamey Carroll is sitting on 999 hits, they know (James) Shields is going for his 100th win tomorrow, they knew this would be a new career high for Jeremy Guthrie with 15 wins. They knew Hollands next save would be the franchise record. Theyre all pushing, they all want to finish strong," Royals manager Ned Yost said. Paul Konerko and Adam Dunn hit solo homers for the White Sox, who have lost 21 of their 27. The White Sox are 35 games under .500 (62-97) for the first time since ending the 1970 season 56-106 and must win once in this series to avoid finishing with 100 losses, which would be the fourth-most in franchise history. "You dont want to lose 100. You dont want to put that on a team next year. Whoevers here is going to have to answer questions about this season and just have it in the back of their minds," Konerko said. "If you can avoid it, you can avoid it. Whether we lose 98, now (actually 97), I can promise you if we won the next three, wed know what it feels like to lose 100." Guthrie already surpassed his career best win total when he won his 12th on Aug. 5 against the Twins. "For me, its a reflection on the team. The bullpen pitched tremendous all season long, especially games I threw in and the offence picked us up great along with the defence," Guthrie said. "I think wins for the most part can really be attributed to the guys around you, its a team effort. I am really pleased to help the team win games and get credited for 15 times." White Sox starter Andre Rienzo (2-3) pitched six-plus innings and allowed three runs, two earned, and four hits. Holland, who struck out two in the ninth, isnt worried about accolades. "I think maybe it will set in a little later. Right now, I am happy we won. Anytime you are mentioned with guys that you know were great it is pretty special," Holland said. "When youre out there on the mound youre just thinking of saving the game for the guys because they played their butts off." Trailing 1-0 in the fourth inning, Lough hit a two-run homer, snapping a streak of 21 scoreless innings for the Royals. The last time the Royals scored was in the 12th inning of a 6-5 victory at Seattle on Monday. Dunn tied the game in the sixth with a long home run to right. It was his 33rd of the season and it was measured at 442 feet. In the seventh inning, Justin Maxwell led off with a single and advanced to second on Loughs bunt, then he came around to score after catcher Bryan Anderson fielded George Kottaras sacrifice bunt and threw it down the right-field line to give the Royals a 3-2 lead. "Jeremy Guthrie getting his 15th win of the year. The way he threw the ball was tremendous, but the two bunts changed the game," Yost said. Konerko, who missed Wednesdays game at Cleveland after fouling a pitch off his knee on Tuesday, homered in the second inning. It was his 12th of the season. Konerko is possibly playing his last series with the White Sox. He is a free agent after the season and has been a member of the club for the last 15 seasons. This is his lowest home run total with the White Sox. "This year Ive hit a lot of balls hard that I put on a line or on the ground. Even balls that got down I hit. These arent balls I hit any less hard than I did tonight, its just its path. Its the technique of it all. Thats where it is for me. That one tonight, I attacked that one the right way and to get it in that air and get it going. I just havent done that a lot this year," Konerko said. NOTES: Shields will attempt to get his 100th career win on Friday night. ... Chris Sale, who leads the AL in complete games, will start for Chicago. ... Kansas City pitching set a franchise record with its 1,178th strikeout. Mario Lemieux Team Canada Jersey .B. - Sebastien Auger made 44 saves as the Saint John Sea Dogs edged the visiting Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2-1 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Maurice Richard Canada Jersey . Tests earlier this week revealed a Grade 2 left hamstring strain for Sabathia, who was hurt in last Fridays start against San Francisco. Its an injury that will require about eight weeks to heal. He finished a disappointing campaign just 14-13 with a career-worst 4. http://www.hockeyteamcanadajerseystore.com/ryan-getzlaf-Canada-jersey/ . -- On the field, it was business as usual for Jameis Winston and No.TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It was a sputtering, inconsistent, and rather mundane performance for No. 1 Alabama. Or at least, thats how it seemed a week after a big-game roller coaster ride. AJ McCarron passed for 258 yards and threw a 30-yard touchdown to DeAndrew White in the fourth quarter to lift Alabama to a 31-6 victory over Colorado State on Saturday night. Two fourth-quarter touchdowns, one on special teams and another on fourth down, helped keep the final score from being close for the Tide (3-0). "I felt like as a whole, we didnt really execute to our full abilities," Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley said. "Thats not an SEC opponent that we just played and the win really wasnt what it should have been. So I felt like we kind of got away with a win. We didnt dominate that win." Offensive lineman Kellen Williams described the postgame mood as "pretty sombre," even after the 25-point win. Kenyan Drake set up one touchdown with a blocked punt returned 15 yards by Dillon Lee and scored on a 3-yard touchdown run for the Tide, which led just 17-6 heading to the fourth. Alabama managed only one offensive touchdown and no third-down conversions in the first three quarters a week after winning a 49-42 shootout over Texas A&M. Coached by former Tide offensive co-ordinator Jim McElwain, the Rams (1-3) nursed hopes for a monumental upset into the fourth quarter before allowing two touchdowns. Trey DePriest stripped the ball from quarterback Garrett Grayson and recovered the fumble early in the quarter. "We challenged our guys to come in here and go toe-to-toe," said McElwain, who was part of two Tide national championship teams from 2008-11. "I think the guys on the other sideline have earned some respect for Colorado State Rams and how hard we played the game." The next play after the fumble, McCarron laced a perfect strike to White in the end zone and restless Alabama fans had something to cheer about. The Tide was without several key players, including receivers Amari Cooper (toe) and Kevin Norwood, guard Anthony Steen (headache), cornerback Deion Belue (turf toe) and safety Jarrick Williams (eye). This was a sandwich game between Southeastern Conference showdowns, and the nearly 40-point favourites played like it offensively. Shea Weber Jersey. No. 21 Mississippi visits Bryant-Denny Stadium next week. McCarron completed 20 of 26 passes but also was intercepted on an ill-advised throw. T.J. Yeldon ran seven times for 49 yards while Christion Jones caught nine passes for 90 yards. Yeldon was held out of the first quarter after getting flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct against Texas A&M. He apologized in a statement Monday for making the "money" and double throat slash gestures after a touchdown. He had a 38-yard run on his first carry midway through the second quarter but the running game produced only 66 yards on 21 carries. That was the fewest rushing yards by the Tide since South Carolina held them to 36 yards on Oct. 9, 2010. "Offensively, we couldnt run the ball with any consistency or effectiveness," Alabama coach Nick Saban said. "Even though we did a pretty good job passing, it had to be four or five times that we moved the ball down the field and got just outside the red zone, and we had something happen like throw an interception, miss a field goal, make a field goal, get sacked. Just too many negative plays." Greyson completed 24 of 38 passes for 228 yards for the Rams, who managed just 51 yards on the ground. Rashard Higgins had seven catches for 71 yards and Joe Hansley gained 82 on six receptions. Alabama failed on all six third-down attempts through three quarters and finished 2 of 10. The Tide outgained Colorado State 338-279 in total yards after running up 568 yards a week ago. Alabama continued to find other ways to score. Lees return early in the second quarter was the Tides fifth non-offensive touchdown. Alabama backup quarterback Blake Sims hit Chris Black for a 14-yard touchdown pass to add to the lead with 1:13 left. It was Blacks first career catch. McCarron was in for most of the series against a team led by his former position coach and Saban assistant. McElwains Rams didnt reach Alabama territory until midway through the third quarter and then did it two straight drives. The Tide defence did come up with stops both times. Jared Roberts kicked field goals of 45 and 31 yards to cut the Tides lead to 17-6. Landon Collins pulled Grayson down on a keeper on third down to force the second kick.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Jared Cook Jersey . -- Houston Texans running back Arian Foster says in an upcoming documentary he accepted money his senior year at Tennessee. "Honestly, I dont know if this will throw us into an NCAA investigation, but my senior year I was getting money on the side," Foster says in the EPIX documentary. "I really didnt have any money. I had to either pay the rent or buy some food. I remember the feeling, like, Man, be careful, but theres nothing wrong with it. Youre not going to convince me that there is something wrong with it." Sports Illustrated first reported Fosters comments in the documentary, "Schooled: The Price of College Sports." Foster, who played for the Volunteers from 2005-08, expanded on his comments Friday after the Texans practice. "I feel very strong about the injustice the NCAA has been doing for years," Foster said. Thats why I said what I said. Im not trying to throw anyone under the bus or anything like that. ... I feel like I shouldnt have to run from the NCAA anymore. Theyre like these big bullies. Im not scared of them." Andrew Muscato, a producer of the documentary, said Foster didnt specify how much money he received or who paid him during the four-hour interview in February. Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart said in a statement released by the university Friday that, "We cant speak to something that allegedly happened a long time ago." Hart said what the university can "say is that the values and priorities of our athletic department and football program are aligned, and the constant education of our student-athletes regarding the rules and the consequences of their choices is of the highest priority." In response to an email about Fosters comments, NCAA spokeswoman Emily Potter said that "I cant speak to a specific situation." The Foster report comes one week after Yahoo Sports reported that a runner for agents provided illegal benefits to Tennessee defensive lineman Maurice Couch and former Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray as well as former Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker, former Mississippi State defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and former Mississippi State wide receiver Chad Bumphis. Couch has been ruled ineligible while the school investigates those allegations. Tennessee is on probation through Aug. 23, 2015, for previous violations. The probation was extended by two years last November after the NCAA ruled former assistant Willie Mack Garza provided impermissible travel and lodging for an unofficial visit by prospect Lache Seastrunk, who eventually signed with Oregon and has since transferred to Baylor. Garza worked on the staff of former Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin, whos now at Southern California. Foster said Friday the money he received didnt come from a coach. A phone call Friday to Phillip Fulmer, the Tennessee coach during Fosters college career, wasnt immediately returned. "Side people always offer you money all the time, just random people usually. Can I take care of you? " Foster said Friday. "It happens all the time. When youre at college and your family doesnt make a lot of money, its hard to make ends meet. . Toward the end of the month, you run out every month. Its a problem all across America. Its just when you play top-tier Division I football, theres people that are willing to help you out. I got helped out." In the clip of the documentary that appeared on Sports Illustrateds website, Foster says he once complained to a coach about how he had no food or money, and that the coach responded by giving about 50 tacos to him and a handful of friends. Muscato said the documentary is an examination of college sports through the scope of athletes rights. "They have us feeling like thats wrong (to get paid)," Foster said Friday. "Its not wrong. Thats how I keep my lights on now and theres nothing wrong with it. But they have us feeling like its OK to sanction 18-year-old kids because they received money for playing a sport. And they try to disguise it under the rule of amateurism. And if you watch the documentary . its just been a big charade for years. And its about time for it to come to an end." In an interview with the Associated Press on Thursday, SEC Commissioner Mike Slive criticized the NCAA rules regarding agents and said conferences that produce plenty of NFL prospects should have the authority to create their own regulations to curb such problems. "I feel like the current NCAA rules and regulations are part of the problem, theyre not part of the solution," Slive said. Frank Zombo Chiefs Jersey .

Vokoun departed practice on Saturday morning after discovering swelling in his thigh. He was taken to a local hospital where the clot was revealed. The club announced the surgery following a 5-3 exhibition loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. "The most important thing right now is Tomas health and well-being," Penguins GM Ray Shero said. "The clot was dissolved by the procedure, and the doctors tell us that he will remain in the hospital for several days. We will continuue to monitor his progress after that. Mitch Morse Jersey.

Pittsburgh has one other goaltender on its roster besides starter Marc-Andre Fleury -- Jeff Zatkoff -- while Eric Hartzell had been assigned to Wilkes- Barre/Scranton of the AHL. Vokoun also missed the end of the 2005-06 season and the entire postseason, when he was the starter in Nashville, due to blood clots in his abdomen.

DALLAS -- Andrew Ladd stepped on the ice in a shootout knowing Winnipeg had lost two in a row after regulation. Melvin Gordon Chargers Jersey . The Jets captain made it a happy ending this time. Ladd scored the only goal in a shootout, Ondrej Pavelec had 35 saves and the Winnipeg Jets beat the Dallas Stars 2-1 on Saturday night. The Jets played past regulation for the third straight game and fourth in the past five. They snapped a three-game losing streak. "Yeah, nice to be on the other side of an overtime and shootout game for sure," Ladd said. After Jamie Benn hit the post and Alex Chiasson was stuffed easily by Pavelec in the shootout, Ladd beat Kari Lehtonen on the glove side. The Jets got the win when Ray Whitney missed wide. Olli Jokinen missed on Winnipegs first attempt. The Jets were penalized for too many men on the ice with 24.6 seconds left in regulation, and Pavelec made a pad save on a point-blank shot from Benn just a few seconds after the faceoff. "We need him to be our best player on a lot of nights," Ladd said of Pavelec. "He bailed us out a couple times, but still thought we did a lot of good things." The Stars had a 4-on-3 advantage for the first 1:35 of overtime, but the Jets had the two best scoring chances during that stretch. Bryan Little was stuffed by Lehtonen, and Zach Bogosian couldnt finish a play, trying to beat Lehtonen with a crossover on the goalies glove side. "We made some ill-advised decisions," said Stars coach Lindy Ruff, who returns to Buffalo on Monday night for his first game since getting fired during his 15th season with the Sabres in February. "We gave some pucks up again. Our shots are going to stay high against until we manage the puck better." Lehtonen had 37 saves for Dallas, including four in the final minute of overtime, but lost for just the second time this season. Winnipeg won in Dallas in its first visit since relocating from Atlanta, and for just the second time in the franchises 14 seasons. "These three in a row, losing that extra point would have been tough on our group," Jets coach Claude Noel said. "So I thought we got rewarded." Stephane Robidas pulled Dallas even at 1-all at 6:36 of the third period when his shot from the point went through the legs of Lane MacDermid and under Pavelec. The assists went to MacDermid and Vernon Fiddler, who carried the puck into the zone and flipped a pass backward to Robidas. "Its tough to win games when you have bad starts," Fiddler said. "Youre playing catch-up hockey. We cant be a team that just turns it on in the third and expect to win." Evander Kane opened the scoring at 3:28 of the second with a goal during a delayed penalty as an extra Winnipeg skater was joining the play. Kane settled the puck with his glove on the right wing and shot it past Lehtonen as the goalie was settling back in after jumping to make a pad save on a shot. Tyler Seguin, who had a career-high four points when Dallas beat Winnipeg 4-1 for its only road win earlier this month, was held scoreless but had a team-high five shots. Winnipeg just missed going up 2-0 in the opening seconds of the third period on a rush that ended with Dallas defenceman Jordie Benn sweeping the puck out of a wide open crease after a shot hit the post. The Stars had a good chance to go in front with about 6 minutes left, but Seguin couldnt control the puck with Pavelec out of position. Notes: The Winnipeg franchise had just one previous win in Dallas dating to its days in Atlanta. ... Stars defenceman Alex Goligoski played nearly 20 minutes after he was a healthy scratch in Thursdays 5-1 win over Calgary. Kevin Connauton, who replaced Goligoski against the Flames, was a scratch against the Jets. ... Winnipeg opened the second of 10 back-to-back sets this season. The Jets play at Colorado on Sunday night. ... The Stars were 0 for 4 on the power play and have failed to convert in all 16 chances at home. Chris Watt Chargers Jersey . "Four now," Carl Gunnarsson told the Leaf Report proudly following a 5-2 victory over New York on Tuesday night, the clubs fifth straight at home. Max Tuerk Chargers Jersey . Vettel, who has already clinched his fourth straight F1 title, enters the finale with a chance to equal Michael Schumachers 13 victories in a year and match the record of nine consecutive wins by Alberto Ascari in the 1952 and 1953 seasons. http://www.authenticchargersnflfansmall.com/c-26-chargers-drew-kaser-jersey.aspx . The 27-year-old Scrivens will be joining his third NHL club since signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in 2010. The move also reunites with him with head coach Dallas Eakins from their time together with the American Hockey Leagues Toronto Marlies.The International break disrupts Premier League play again this weekend at a time when proceedings are gaining momentum. This is the second international break in the last month – so much for continuity. Through seven matches, the logjam remains atop the table, with just four points separating first from seventh place. Just as intriguing, only three points stand between ninth place Manchester United and Norwich City, sitting in 18th and in the relegation zone.  No need to wax poetic this week. To keep your BPL palate satiated, 10 Premier League thoughts heading into the International dates. 1. The Premier League is still buzzing from Adnan Janusajs two-goal debut saving Manchester Uniteds blushes last weekend. Ive been planning a Belgian of the Week section in this space, and Janusaj would fit the bill as worthy winner for Matchday 7. The excitement surrounding the 18-year-old is understandable. Ive been writing about the young players talent for months. His wonderful left foot (he scored with his right foot as well in the 2-1 win), his confidence taking on players, his silky smooth distribution; theres a whole lot to like. It must be remembered this is just one standout performance and Janusaj has a ways to go. Hell have to work on his frame and speed – two glaring physical attributes that will most certainly come in time. Consistency of performance and greater understanding of the game will reveal itself. Whatever may come of Janusaj, remember these are early days. Janusaj was playing at the Dallas Cup with Manchester Uniteds youth team short months ago. Hes jumped from playing in front of hundreds into the cauldron of the Premier League. The narrative, knee-jerk as ever, has been over the top. Comparisons to other young greats (he shares the same date of birth as Cristiano Ronaldo) are far too premature. As is the assumption hes set to pack up and leave Old Trafford at seasons end, just as Paul Pogba forced the clubs hand in his move to Juventus. Pogba has been candid that his inability to win over the manager forced a move. A new contract for Janusaj is a near certainty. So leave any panic to the alarmist in your life. Janusaj also put to bed any immediate discussion about his international future, denying a call-up to Belgium for World Cup qualifiers, and instead focusing on securing regular first team football at United. Janusaj is taking his rise in stride, and so should we. By the looks of it, he has star quality. But its easy for young players to fall off the rail under greater expectations and scrutiny. Even at United, in 2009 Federico Macheda scored a wonder goal winner at Aston Villa in the third minute of time added on at 17 years of age, drawing instant acclaim. Now 22, Macheda has failed to find his way and has been subject to numerous loan moves that havent helped his game. Lets give Janusaj some time before making any bold declarations of what he is and what he will be. 2. Wayne Rooney spoke publicly for the first time since his summer of discontent, claiming hes happy with his football and settled at Manchester United under David Moyes. Rooney claims his soured relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson stemmed from the former manager playing Rooney in the midfield, a position he did not want to play. The 27-year-old admitted his stance was selfish. Although now settled, Rooney stopped short of committing his long-term future to the club. At this point, the conversation about Rooneys future is irrelevant. Rooney, when fit, has been the top player for Moyes over the first two months. His work rate has been outstanding, and movement on and off the ball has been better than it has in years. A motivated Rooney is what this team needs. He has found a proper role under Moyes and regained his edge he has lacked in recent times. As long he maintains top form and continues to hold his place in the side playing off Robin van Persie along the front line, United will pay him whatever he requires to keep his spot in the side. No player is bigger than the club. But no player is more important over this transition period for Moyes than Rooney. Just 47 goals away from Sir Bobby Charltons club record of 249, such a prestigious record at the biggest club in the world is something neither club nor player can ignore. It wont be just Rooney acting selfish, the club will too. It may not be a perfect marriage, but its one that works. 3. An unsung hero is emerging at Arsenal. The deadline day big money acquisition of Mesut Ozil stole the headlines. But the addition of Mathieu Flamini has been another true difference maker. Flamini returned to Arsenal after five years at AC Milan. At the time, it seemed the Frenchman would be a role player. His importance cannot be understated, forcing Jack Wilshere up the park in a less familiar role, and the move has paid off in spades. Flamini fits the mold of a quiet, no-nonsense central midfielder who will allow the players around him to play. Hes efficient, tactically sound and his runs and passes are simple. Hes not all action and will never be a box-to-box, end-to-end presence. Thats not what Arsenal needs anyway. Flamini had only two wayward passes in the 1-1 draw on the weekend at the Hawthorns and has started every match in the Premier League and Champions League with the exception of his debut. The substance here doesnt require flash. It seems like Flamini has been around forever, yet hes only 29 and has plenty of game left. Its these types of character moves, bringing team players into the squad that wins trophies. The acquisition was understated, or even an afterthought, but bringing Flamini back to the Emirates has been a stroke of genius by Arsene Wenger. 4. Football has never been more attack oriented. Fluid, dynamic attacking players reflect the way the game is going, and top teams are being rewarded for more adventurous play. Southampton is a team who added attacking flair in the summer with a club record move for Dani Osvaldo from Roma. The Premier League has been an adjustment for the Italian international, scoring one goal thus far. But patience can be preached with Osvaldo while the team boasts the top defensive record in the BPL. Southampton have only conceded two goals this season; thats six fewer than league leaders Arsenal. And go figure, Southampton sits fourth in the Premier League. Team defending and shape has been efficient under Mauricio Pochettino. The team conceded 60 times last campaign with only five teams having a worse goal against record. A less flashy off-season move was the purchase of centre-back Dejan Lovren from Lyon, who has shored up things along the back line alongside the underrated Jose Fonte. The tandem, in combination with centre-midfielders Victor Wanyama and tackle-machine Morgan Schneiderlin have given strength down the spine. The true starring figure has been goalkeeper Artur Boruc, arguably the top player at his position in the league thus far. 19 saves, many of the highlight reel variety and five clean sheets have provided strength in goal for a team with a core of young players dependent on leadership at the back. The Saints will be hard pressed to keep up their current form. But the competitive nature of this team shouldnt surprise. 5. Spurs slip up at home to West Ham to the tune of a 3-0 loss was the shock result of the weekend. It was all a mess for Andre Villas-Boas side, forcing the issue in attack and allowing sloppy play to seep into the teams defensive performance in the second half. Spurs hadnt conceded more than a goal in a match all season and for the complete breakdown to come against a scoring deficient West Ham is entirely surprising. Other than a wonderful individual effort by Ravel Morrison, the other West Ham goals were defenders being muscled off the ball, failing to get in proper position, and losing concentration; all more mental issues than anything else. Branden Oliver Chargers Jersey. As far as squad selection, AVB elected to hand Jermain Defoe a rare start and it backfired. Defoe seems a player more suited to life in Cup competitions rather than a player to rely upon in the Premier League. Once Roberto Soldado came on, there was too little action from the Spaniard. Hes a talented goal scorer, but he needs to become more active in his play. Superior movement off the ball is required for Soldado to be a reliable big match option for Spurs. This team is good enough to be at the top of the table. How they respond from this setback will say a lot about the true makeup of the team. Its time to grow up. 6. There need be growing worry about the durability of Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany. The centre-back is the most important player to Citys title credentials, yet he cant stay fit. Kompany will miss Belgiums World Cup qualifiers and faces another spell on the sidelines after leaving Citys 3-1 win over Everton after just 34 minutes with a quad injury. This is Kompanys second injury requiring missed action of the season. Over the last 18 months, Kompany has dealt with three separate calf injuries, a hamstring and groin issues. Kompany is just 27 years old and supposed to be in peak physical condition. As the injuries mount, so does the concern. Short term, City has a big match with Chelsea at the end of the month. If not fit, Jose Mourinho will look to expose the back line with team speed in high positions. But longer term, another top centre-back need be recruited to manage Kompanys minutes more effectively. Manchester United had to do so with the greatest of care with Rio Ferdinand after a myriad of injury issues. The problem for Manuel Pellegrini is he doesnt have requisite cover at the back at present time. Joleon Lescott continues to be a nightmare and unable to play adequately alongside Matija Nastasic. The thought of Javi Garcia playing out of position in big matches is one that would have other teams salivating. As good as City is in attack, they need a fit Kompany to maintain proper structure and lead from the back in all competitions. 7. The raves reviews of Liverpools standout early play continue to ring in. There is a lot to like about the Luis Suarez/Daniel Sturridge partnership in attack, no matter how over the top the praise has become. The movement off the ball is most impressive, with neither player taking up a true high position. The inter-play and the freedom manager Brendan Rodgers has given the duo is whats making it so fluid. The preference of each player is to drift out to the left, but they are doing so with great patience and positional awareness. Rodgers is making all the right moves at the back as well. Against Crystal Palace, Rodgers deployed three at the back, showing intent to attack. The formation works with Steven Gerrard and Lucas playing deeper in holding midfield positions. The variety to which Liverpool can play at a high level is impressive. The formations are flexible and the players dont seem effected by the various tactical changes. Hats off to Rodgers as he continues to get the most out of what he has.  8. There are only 20 managerial jobs in the Premier League. When a job comes available, its hard to turn down the opportunity. That opportunity knocked for Gus Poyet at Sunderland, and the Uruguayan jumped at the chance to take the job. Good luck, Gus. Youre going to need it. Poyet did a wonderful job at Brighton, bringing the club to the brink of Premier League promotion. After a controversial falling out, its plain to see why Poyet wanted back on the job as soon as possible. Problem being, this Sunderland team may be the worse place for the next step in his managerial career. Although its just seven games in, Sunderland are stuck on one point and face a tough go of it, with Swansea away before meeting fierce rival Newcastle in a statement match in the coming weeks. Sunderland brought 14 new players to the club in the summer, and its far-fetched to believe a new manager can bring this group of relative unknowns closer together, forming a chemistry and identity while navigating through murky waters. Dont look for the bank to re-open for transfers in January. Poyet was known for wanting complete control of transfers at Brighton. Director of football Roberto de Fanti and chief scout Valentino Angeloni were instrumental in the busy summer business working hand in hand with Paolo Di Canio. The gentlemen can say they will all be on the same page. But until further evidence, its all lip service. Fact is, the team isnt good enough. Neither are the players. The passionate supporters of the Black Cats deserve better than the current climate. Poyet will have to pull a rabbit out of his hat to get this one right. 9. Cardiff City promotion was a wonderful story of perseverance for the Welsh club. The good vibes have continued into this Premier League season. The magical 3-2 home victory over Manchester City provided some of the scenes of the season. Now stories of discontent and questionable decision-making behind the scenes threaten the goodwill and could derail positive strides on the field. First came reports last weekend of players banning owner Vincent Tan from the locker room over a row about unpaid bonus payments. Then on Tuesday, head of recruitment and right-hand man of manager Malky Mackay, Iain Moody was replaced by a 23-year-old friend of the owners son, with no said footballing experience. The latest rumours have Mackay being asked to leave his position; something the manager refuses to do. The players clearly play for their manager. Any such move would shake the club to its core. Cardiff City stadium was a fortress in winning the League Championship last campaign. Cardiff supporters have already endured the owner changing the colours from their tradition blue to red. Now discontent is taking the dysfunction to intolerable levels. This is certainly a situation to monitor. It would be an absolute shame if the clubs historic rise to the top tier unravels as such. 10. A BBC State of the Game study revealed English footballers account for less than a third of minutes played in the Premier League thus far this season. The figure is substantially lower in comparison to other nationals playing in their respective leagues across Europe. These latest findings will raise the voice of the disheartened masses about the state of the game in England. A national team struggling through World Cup qualifying with little success in recent memory combined with a league whose biggest stars reside from other countries doesnt sit well with the proud footballing nation. Add Jack Wilsheres patriotic call for what it means to be English and represent country, expect a reaction calling for limitations on foreign players in the Premier League. This line of thinking couldnt be more off base. Its not about putting restrictions or foreign players. Its about proper development from within the country. This starts at the youth level. Its the way the players are being taught to play the game. Its the startling lack of top trained and progressive thinking English coaches. Its about redeveloping the identity of how England should play as a nation, bringing the country up to modern standard with a refreshed tactical and skill development approach. The reason why more English players arent playing at the top level is they arent good enough. Its the hard to swallow reality of where the bulk of English players stand at the current time. Theres something ironic about a call for restrictions on foreign players in a league that benefits so significantly from their global popularity and the financial windfall stemming from their reach and the relatable nature of their product.

TORONTO -- Showing that life in the NHL isnt always about five-star hotels or designer suits, Leafs coach Randy Carlyle found himself in a Swiss Chalet in Parry Sound, Ont. Ricardo Lockette Seahawks Jersey ., on Boxing Day. And while his players were with family and friends, likely away from the limelight, Carlyle was hard to miss among those ordering a quarter-chicken dinner. "Some fan walks by and says Hey Carlyle, you better get those Leafs going," Carlyle said Friday with a smile. "Everybody in the Swiss Chalet knew I was there so I guess I didnt get away from it (hockey)." For his players, hockey had been on the backburner, at least for a day or two. "It was nice to have a break, physically and mentally," winger Joffrey Lupul said ahead of Friday nights game against the visiting Buffalo Sabres. "It (December) was a tough month for us, record-wise and just schedule, travel-wise. So hopefully a couple of days rest is what we needed and we are able to put together some wins here." "Christmas break, you kind of recharge and refuel and re-energize and get ready to push through to the finish," said captain Dion Phaneuf. "Everybody came back rested, got to spend some time with their families and friends over the holidays and thats what its about," he added. "Now were back to work tonight and weve got to focus on getting our game back to where we want it to be." The Leafs (18-16-5) are coming off shootout losses to the Rangers and Red Wings. Toronto has just one regulation win in its last 18 outings (5-9-4). The Sabres desperately needed the break. A bout of flu meant interim coach Ted Nolan was able to dress just 16 players Monday against Phoenix. Having their Rochester Americans farm team in Switzerland at the Spengler Cup didnt help matters. "They look a lot better today, so thats good," Nolan said Friday of his Sabres." Centre Cody Hodgson, sidelined after blocking a shot, is still not ready to return, however. The goalie matchup Friday appeared to be Jonathan Bernier for the Leafs against Ryan Miller of the Sabres. Carlyle said the Christmas break seemed to have been worthwhile, pointing to the energy he saw from his team in the morning skate. "We all felt pretty good out there this morning," defenceman Cody Franson concurred. "It was nice to have a couple of days (off)." Still, as Swiss Chalet showed, its hard to hide from hockey. "But you never really truly forget about it because its always in the back of your mind to some degree," Carlyle said. "We just hope we can take some of that energy that we had this morning and transfer it into tonights hockey game. "These games are a different games, Im going to tell you. You never know what youre going to get off of three days (rest) and one morning skate. Im sure all the coaches in the leagues are saying the same thing." At 10-24-3, the Sabres sit at the bottom of the NHL. But they are on a mini-streak, having won three of their last four and have gone 4-4-2 in their last 10 games. Toronto is 3-5-2 over the same period. Luck may also be finally on the Sabres side. Buffalo won last time out via a bizarre overtime goal against Phoenix that saw the puck fly into the air and land in the back of Coyotes goalie Mike Smiths pants. An unknowing Smith slid backwards into the goal, taking the puck with him for a 2-1 Buffalo win Monday. There could be more mayhem in front of goal Friday, with six-foot-eight, 259-pound tough guy John Scott expected to see time on the power play in front of the Toronto net. The big man had 199 career NHL games under his belt going into Friday night. At the other end, the Leafs will likely need a plan of their own against a hot goalie. Miller is 4-1-0 in last five starts, with a 1.56 goals against average and .952 save percentage. He has not allowed a third-period goal during that run. He is also 2-0 against the Leafs this season and 31-15-1 overall against Toronto. Carlyle had not lost his sense of humour over the Christmas break. Did you miss us, was his first question from the media after the morning skate. "No I cant say I missed you," he replied to laughter. "I just didnt think about you." The media were back in their numbers Friday. Leafs TV, the teams house channel, had six people in the arena seats talking on TV during the skate. Tony Moeaki Seahawks Jersey .

In the response filed Wednesday to the complaint by 30-year-old Alexander Bradley, attorneys say the former University of Florida player is invoking his Fifth Amendment right that protects people from incriminating themselves. Accordingg to court records, Bradley claims Hernandez shot him after they argued at the club in February. Doug Baldwin Seahawks Jersey. Bradley seeks at least $100,000 in damages.

If you want to look at the cold hard facts, the Kansas City Royals are now the only team in the Majors with a longer post-season drought than the Blue Jays. Brent Burns World Cup Jersey . The Royals, who shrunk over the years from model franchise to annual also-rans, havent made it to the playoffs since 1985, the year they beat the Blue Jays in the American League Championship series en route to winning their one and only World Series title under the late Dick Howser. The past few years though, theyve developed a wealth of young home-grown talent, including catcher Salvador Perez, outfielders Alex Gordon and Lorenzo Cain, third baseman Mike Moustakas, shortstop Alcides Escobar and DH Billy Butler, not to mention outfielder Wil Meyers, who was dealt to Tampa Bay for pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis last year. The Royals are continuing their playoff push this off-season. They signed GM Dayton Moore to a two-year extension and then veteran lefty Jason Vargas to a four-year deal and this week, they traded for a needed lead-off hitter, getting Norichika Aoki from Milwaukee to play right field. The next move may be their boldest yet if they can bring back outfielder Carlos Beltran on a three-year deal. The bottom line is, even if they dont win the Central, theyd have to be a favourite for one of the two Wild Card slots, making it even more difficult for the Blue Jays to make it into the post-season. The Jays have been fairly quiet so far, non-tendering catcher J.P. Arencibia, signing catcher Dioner Navarro and then trading reliever Brad Lincoln to the Phillies for catcher Eric Kratz and lefty reliever Rob Rasmussen. Not exactly earth-shattering moves. GM Alex Anthopoulos is already dampening expectations for next weeks Winter Meetings at Orlando a bit by telling the Toronto chapter of the BBWAA that he doesnt expect to add any more than one starting pitcher from outside the organization in the off-season, when most believe they need two. I trust Alex still has a few tricks up his sleeve, but if the Jays arent aggressive enough, they could find themselves with the longest post-season drought of all at 21 years and counting after the coming season. Lone Ranger? From all reports coming out of Texas, it sounds as though Arencibia is going to wind up in Texas as the back-up catcher to Geovany Soto and maybe a part-time DH. The Texas ballpark is made to order for J.P.s power stroke, and heres hoping he can rediscover or rebuild the rest of his game. Hes too good a person to flame-out in this game so soon. On The Move? Dont rule out the possibility of the Blue Jays dealing Adam Lind next week. Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay both want free agent first baseman James Loney. But the team that doesnt get him might come a-calling about Lind. Names From the Past A few more ex-Jays in the news this week include former 2B Kelly Johnson, who is reportedly close to signing a one-year deal with the Yankees in a utility role. Eric Hinske, who won the Rookie of the Year Award as the Blue Jays third baseman in 2002, retired to become the Chicago Cubs first base coach. Finally Dave Winfield, one of the Jays World Series heroes of  1992, left his front office post with San Diego to become special advisor to Tony Clark, the new Executive Director of the Players Association. Winfield and Clark are two of the most impressive and imposing men Ive ever met, both charismatic and intelligent and just dominant in size when they enter a room with Winfield at 66" and Clark at 68". The Players Association is in good hands after the tragic passing of Michael Weiner at 51 after a long battle with brain cancer. Patrice Bergeron World Cup Jersey .

The Ottawa Senators are looking to find some consistency as they travel to Tampa Bay Thursday night, with the Lightning hoping to break out of their scoring slump of their own. Jan Vertonghen Jersey UK . The Senators snapped a two-game slide on Tuesday with a 4-2 win over the Florida Panthers. They allowed the first two goals of the game, both on Panther power plays, before getting first-period goals from Joe Corvo and Erik Condra to even things up. Colin Greening had the go-ahead goal with 43 seconds remaining in the second period and Bobby Ryan added a third-period tally. Though Ottawa won for just the third time in its past nine games, it was a win that head coach Paul MacLean is hoping his team can build on. "Were showing signs of being consistent," he said. Craig Anderson made 30 saves and Clarke MacArthur had two assists to give him 10 points over his last eight games. The win improved Anderson to just 7-8-2 with a 3.42 goals against average this season, but he is 6-2-2 with a 1.42 GAA and three shutouts lifetime versus the Lightning. The Bolts won two of three versus the Senators last season -- winning both meetings in Tampa -- but the Sens have still won seven of the last 10 encounters overall. The Lightning have been shut out in back-to-back games and in three of their last five. Two of those have come by 1-0 decisions, including Tuesdays setback to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Tampa Bay failed to score against the Blue Jackets Sergei Bobrovsky, who left with 15:47 to play in the game, or Curtis McElhinney. The duo combined to stop 26 shots. "If youre not frustrated, something is wrong with you right now," said Martin St. Louis, who was robbed by McElhinney on a late chance. The Lightning have lost six of their last eight games overall and five in a row on the road. They are 4-5-1 since star center Steven Stamkos broke his leg. Tampa Bay, which was coming off a 3-0 loss at home to Pittsburgh last Friday, has not scored since Tyler Johnsons empty-net tally with 34 seconds left in a 4-2 win over Philadelphia last Friday. It has not scored against an opposing netminder since Victor Hedmans tally five minutes into the third period versus the Flyers. "If its not off the rush, were done," St. Louis said. "We have to be able to sustain offensive pressure." Ben Bishop made 20 saves versus the Blue Jackets and could face his former club tonight. Bishops only other meeting versus the Senators came on April 9 of last season, six days after he was traded to the Lightning by Ottawa for Cory Conacher and a draft pick. Bishop stopped 31-of-33 shots faced in the win. Erik Lamela Hotspur Jersey UK .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable.

JOHNS, N.LONDON -- What if they held an Olympics and nobody came? The situation isnt that bleak, of course, for the Sochi Games. Yet, with less than three weeks to go until the opening ceremony, hundreds of thousands of tickets remain unsold, raising the prospect of empty seats and a lack of atmosphere at Russias first Winter Olympics. There are signs that many foreign fans are staying away, turned off by terrorist threats, expensive flights and hotels, long travel distances, a shortage of tourist attractions in the area, and the hassle of obtaining visas and spectator passes. "Some people are scared it costs too much and other people are scared because of security," senior International Olympic Committee member Gerhard Heiberg of Norway told The Associated Press. "From my country, I know that several people and companies are not going for these two reasons. Of course, there will be Norwegians there but not as many as we are used to." Sochi organizers announced last week that 70 per cent of tickets have been sold for the games, which run from Feb. 7-23 and represent a symbol of pride and prestige for Russia and President Vladimir Putin. So what about the remaining 30 per cent? "We are keeping a special quota for those who come for the games, so that they can indeed buy tickets for the competitions," organizing committee chief Dmitry Chernyshenko said. Chernyshenko said about 213,000 spectators are expected at the games, with about 75 per cent likely to be Russians. "Tickets are being snapped up fast with the most popular events being hockey, biathlon, figure skating, freestyle and snowboard," the organizing committee said in a statement to the AP. "With 70 per cent of tickets already sold and another ticketing office opening shortly, we are expecting strong last-minute ticket sales and do not envisage having empty seats." Sochi officials have refused to divulge how many tickets in total were put up for sale, saying the figure would only be released after the games. However, according to IOC marketing documents seen by the AP, Sochi had a total of 1.1 million tickets on offer. That would mean about 300,000 tickets remained available. By comparison, 1.54 million tickets were available for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and 97 per cent (1.49 million) were sold. For the 2012 Summer Games in London, organizers sold 97 per cent (8.2 million) of their 8.5 million tickets. Heiberg, who chairs the IOC marketing commission, said the Russians have cut down by 50 per cent on the number of spectators originally planned for the mountain events for security reasons. "That means there will be less people and probably less enthusiasm than we had, for instance, in Lillehammer," he said. "I hope the Russians will fill not only their indoor stadiums but there will be enough people in the stadiums for the Nordic events." Heiberg organized the 1994 Lillehammer Winter Olympics, which stood out for the colorful atmosphere generated by passionate Norwegian fanns. Kyle Walker Jersey UK. Sochis ticket sales began in February 2013, a year before the games. Tickets have been sold on Sochis official website on a first-come, first-served basis. Box offices are now open in Moscow and Sochi. The cheapest tickets go for 500 rubles ($15), the most expensive for 40,000 rubles ($1,200). More than half of all tickets cost less than 5,000 rubles ($150). The average monthly salary in Russia is 30,000 rubles ($890). The one and only authorized ticket office in Sochi was busy on a recent afternoon, with three dozen people lining up at what once was a waiting room at the citys railway station. Many, however, complained that all the cheap tickets were already gone. "Prices leave much to be desired, but what can you can do?" said Sochi resident Yana Ivolovskaya, who bought two tickets for bobsled for 2,000 rubles ($60). "Were not going to get another Olympics in Sochi so I thought I should go." Fans outside Russia buy tickets from authorized dealers appointed by their national Olympic committees. Attracting foreign visitors has been a challenge amid all the headlines about Russias law banning gay "propaganda," human rights issues and -- particularly -- the risk of terrorism. Back-to-back suicide bombings killed 34 people last month in Volgograd, about 400 miles (640 kilometres) from Sochi. On Sunday, an Islamic militant group in Russias North Caucasus claimed responsibility for the bombings and posted a video threatening to strike the Sochi Games. CoSport, the official ticket reseller in the United States and six other countries, said the Sochi Games generated "good demand" for tickets and packages. "We experienced demand at expected levels," spokesman Michael Kontos said, without giving figures. Flights to Sochi are expensive, and most international travellers have to go through Moscow, with direct flights to Sochi only available from Germany and Turkey. Western travellers must navigate the time-consuming visa process and requirement to obtain a "spectator pass" along with their tickets. This requires providing passport details that allow authorities to screen all visitors. "What we are hearing is that the bureaucratic complexity, with spectator passes and visa and so on, is what scares off fans, more than worries about security," Austrian Olympic Committee spokesman Wolfgang Eichler said. Jan Serenander, managing director of Jet Set Sports in Norway, cited a lack of tourist attractions in the Black Sea resort. "When Sochi was announced no one had even heard of the place," he said. "They had to get out their atlases." Die-hard winter sports fans, however, will not be discouraged. Orange-clad speedskating fans from the Netherlands are always among the most visible spectators at any Winter Games. "I expect it to be orange," Jeroen de Roever, manager of official Duch ticket seller ATPI, said of Sochis speedskating venue. "We have been sold out for quite a while."

LIVERPOOL, England -- Daniel Sturridge grabbed Liverpools winner for the third straight Premier League game to condemn fierce rival Manchester United to a 1-0 loss on Sunday, handing David Moyes his first defeat as manager of the champions. Mariano Andujar Argentina Jersey . The England striker flicked home a close-range header following a fourth-minute corner to maintain his red-hot form and his sides perfect start to the season. Liverpool has won all three of its games 1-0 and Sturridge is providing the cutting edge in the continued absence of suspended Luis Suarez. "Im delighted with his application because he was nowhere near fit today," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. "But even at 70 per cent, hell be as good, if not better, than a lot of Premier League strikers." United dominated possession in the second half but barely created a clear-cut chance in the absence of Wayne Rooney, who was missing after sustaining a head injury in training on Saturday. With just four points from a possible nine and an away match at Manchester City to come in his fifth league match, Moyes isnt having a comfortable start to life as Alex Fergusons successor. "I thought we played very well, probably the best we have played this season," said Moyes, who didnt win at Anfield in his 11 years across Stanley Park at neighbour Everton either. "Tell you what, I could really see why this team are the champions." Moyes was putting a brave face on his current situation, but this display -- coming after a 0-0 draw with Chelsea on Monday -- showed why United has been in the transfer market for attacking midfielders this summer. Robin van Persie wasted a good late opportunity but he was largely starved of service by a sturdy Liverpool backline. Theres always motivation for Liverpool to beat United, its biggest rival, but there was even more on Sunday. The match was played on the eve of what would have been the 100th birthday of the late Liverpool manager Bill Shankly, who died in 1981 after helping turn the club into the leading force in English football in a 15-year spell from 1959-74. Shanklys daughter and six grandchildren stood on the touchline as Liverpool fans -- and most of Uniteds travelling fans -- took part in a minutes applause in the Scots honour before kickoff. There was a mosaic of Shankly in The Kop stand, along with a banner saying "He Made People Happy," while a stirring rendition of club anthem "Youll Never Walk Alone" was belted out. It certainly got Liverpools players fired up and they were first to every ball in a breathless opening spell in which Sturridge grabbed an 11th goal in his last nine Liverpool games. Daniel Agger beat Rio Ferdinand to Steven Gerrards outswinging corner and Sturridge was there inside the six-yard box to stoop and flick home a deft header. The sound was deafening as Sturridge and the whole Liverpool team ran to Rodgers, who has instilled belief into the striker since his move from Chelsea in January. That was enough to ensure a third straight win to start a season for only the second time in the Premier League era. Rodgers laughed out loud when a reporter asked if Liverpool could be classed as title contenders but Suarez is returning soon from a ban for biting and Chelsea winger Victor Moses is one of three players expected to sign Monday on transfer deadline day. "We wont be getting carried away," Rodgers said. "The initial challenge is to get in the top four and I dont think we can look at anything beyond that." But with Ferguson gone, Liverpool can maybe start dreaming of closing the gap to United. This was a tight, frenetic and typically feisty encounter between Englands most successful clubs, who have won the top-flight title 38 times between them. Van Persie spent most of his time tangling with Agger and Martin Skrtel while two defenders, Phil Jones (United) and Glen Johnson (Liverpool), went off with ankle injuries. United improved after the break, pressing higher and starving Liverpools lightweight forward line of possession but worryingly there was no end product without Rooney. "Wayne Rooney is world class ... hes a top, top operator and when we heard he wasnt playing, it gives you a tonic," Rodgers said. "We were defensively strong and I thought the players concentration was very good." Enzo Perez Argentina Jersey . Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced Wednesday that the team would assign Swedish forward Elias Lindholm to his nations team for the upcoming tournament. Facundo Roncaglia Jersey .

Having won the first leg 1-0 in Barcelona, Madrid entered the match at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium already in control and quickly sealed its place in the semifinals when Jese Rodriguez scored in the seventh minute. The young forward continued to win over Madrids fans by chesting forward Xabi Alonsos precise lobbed pass while on the run before firing the ball beyond goalkeeper Kiko Casilla. Cristiano Ronaldo was frustrated several times by Casilla, and the Portugal forward was booked when he tripped Sidnei from behind in the second half. Espanyol never seriously tested Iker Casillas in the opposite net even before Victor Sanchez was sent off in the 77th with hiss second yellow card. Martin Demichelis Argentina Jersey. . Madrid will play the winner of the quarterfinal between defending champion Atletico Madrid and Athletic Bilbao. Atletico leads 1-0 heading into Wednesdays second leg. The game featured Madrids Nacho Fernandez playing against his brother Alex Fernandez. Nacho said it was "not normal at all" to face Alex, who left Madrid for Espanyol last summer. "It was very strange to play against one another," Nacho said. "We used to play together on Madrids (B-team). But at the end you just play the game." Barcelona has one foot in the next round before hosting Levante on Wednesday with a 4-1 lead from the first leg. Real Sociedad will look to finish off third-tier Racing Santander on the road on Thursday after winning the opening leg 3-1.

http://superstardhriti.com/oxwallEugenie Bouchard - a star is born :) - Martina Navratilovas tweet on Tuesday morning (@Martina) Yes, the endorsement of one of the legends of womens tennis must mean that Eugenie Bouchard has truly arrived. Shin-Soo Choo Authentic Jersey . The 19-year-olds trajectory from junior champion to WTA regular to seeded Grand Slam player to Australian Open semifinalist has been nothing short of amazing. And in making her run to the final four of the first major event of the 2014 season, the native of Westmount, Quebec is practically writing history with each victory. "You cant teach that, youre born with it," added ESPN analyst and tennis great Chris Evert. "The way she held herself together, the way she played in the clutch, nothing fazed her and thats a gift she has." When it comes to womens singles, Canadas two best performances have both come at the U.S. Open - and both more than two decades ago. Patricia Hy-Boulais advanced to the quarterfinals in 1992, while Carling Bassett made it to the semifinals there in 1984. In fact, Bassett still has the record of holding Canadas highest-ever singles ranking. She was No. 8 in the world early in 1985 after making four Grand Slam quarterfinals in the two years prior. With Bouchards victory over Ana Ivanovic on Monday, the Canadian is projected to rise from No. 31 into the worlds Top 20 in the first rankings after the Australian Open. Milos Raonic, who peaked at No. 10 last year, is already the highest-ranked mens player in Canadian history. Bouchards rapid rise, coupled with that of Raonic and Vasek Pospisil on the mens side, marks a new era of Canadian singles tennis that has never been seen before. Which isnt to ignore the career success of Torontos Daniel Nestor. Long ranked No. 1 in the world in doubles until recently, Nestor has won eight Grand Slam titles (including the career Slam) and an Olympic gold medal. But the glamour of singles has always kept Nestors achievements a step removed from the mainstream. Bouchards advancement to the last four in Melbourne is stunning mostly for how fast it happened. One year ago, she was playing qualifying matches in Melbourne and did not make the main draw. The summer before that, she was still a junior and captured both singles and doubles titles at Wimbledon. She made her Grand Slam debut at the 2013 French Open and has now made a semifinal is just her fourth major appearance - and her very first at the Australian Open. Bouchards rapid rise has brought new interest to a sport that has until recently, offered Canadians few opportunities to root on homegrown players at the highest levels of the game. A star is born, indeed. Yu Darvish Jersey . He says so-called TRT is only one problem and he wants to go even further than the ban.

The move was announced Tuesday with Buffalo (4-7) entering its bye weekend off.
