NORTON, Mass. Nike Air Jordan Retro . -- Ryan Moore changed his schedule to pile up tournaments at the end of the year with hopes of getting into a rhythm going into the FedEx Cup playoffs.He has no complaints with the results.Moore backed up a good start to the playoffs with a 6-under 65 on Friday to share the first-round lead with James Hahn on a day when hardly anyone seemed too far away. After one round at the TPC Boston, 37 players were separated by three shots.Phil Mickelson would be an exception.Mickelson, who leads the PGA Tour in adjusted scoring average and said he wanted to win the Vardon Trophy for the first time in his career, took two swipes out of high grass in a water hazard to no avail, finally took a drop and made a quadruple-bogey 8 on the sixth hole. That sent him to 75 and in third-to-last place.Moore and Hahn played bogey-free on a breezy day that allowed for good scoring, even though no one went terribly low. They were one shot ahead of Paul Casey and Fabian Gomez. The average score was 69.67 as 80 of the 97 players in the field were at par or better.As usual, there were Ryder Cup implications.Jim Furyk, J.B. Holmes and Daniel Berger were in the group at 67, all of them to make an impression before Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III starts filling out the U.S. team with three picks in 10 days. Holmes finished 10th in the standings, while Furyk was at No. 15 even though he four months recovering from wrist surgery.Love has said every American in the Deutsche Bank Championship would be on his radar, though Moore isnt even thinking about it. His main goal is to get to the Tour Championship for the FedEx Cup finale, and this stacked schedule at the end of the year is working in his favor.Along with a victory in the John Deere Classic, he tied for seventh last week at The Barclays to move to No. 11 in the FedEx Cup.I like how Ive been feeling with my game, Moore said. This is actually the sixth tournament in a row, which I dont think Ive ever done in my entire career on the PGA Tour. Im getting some positive momentum going into these events. How Ive been doing it these last few years kind of wasnt working so I decided to change it up and play a lot more and make a final push and then I know I get a little break.It seems to be working, whatever that decision was.Emiliano Grillo and Adam Scott played together and each shot 67, though they finished differently. Grillo hit a 4-iron into the hazard on the par-5 18th, took a drop and holed out with a wedge for birdie, looking blankly as the crowd roared before throwing down his club in mock surrender. Scott hit into a greenside bunker with his second shot, had a terrible lie and took two shots to get out in saving par.I should have chunked a 4-iron. Thats the way to make birdie, Scott said with a laugh.Jordan Spieth played with them and shot a 68, saying after his round he somehow was losing some 30 yards off his driver and would try to figure out why. Barclays winner Patrick Reed and Dustin Johnson also were at 68.Jason Day, the world No. 1, opened with a 70 and then discovered his wife and two children were involved in a car accident near their travel bus. Day said his wife was taken to the hospital as a precaution, though everyone seemed to be OK.The top 70 in the FedEx Cup advance after this week, and it was a big start for Furyk and Steve Stricker. Furyk is at No. 84, while Stricker barely made it into the field at No. 97. Both opened at 67.Furyk is more concerned with getting to the BMW Championship next week than his Ryder Cup lot.Theres really nothing you can do but go play well, Furyk said. So Im going to try to do my best not to really pay too much attention to the scoreboard and go play golf and worry about the process more than the golf.Stricker went to a different putter, a rare move for him, switching to a face-balanced model after his wife noticed last week he had trouble keeping it square. He decided to give it shot on Friday, and it paid off. His hope is that he gets to keep playing for at least seven more rounds.My goal this year was just to finish in the top 125 and get back into some of the tournaments that I had been play -- The Players Championship, some of the majors. Then once I did that ... you know, were all competitive. We all want to keep playing. Air Jordan Black Friday . The 15th-ranked Canadian men lost the opening two games of their European tour: 19-15 to No. 17 Georgia and 21-20 to No. Nike Air Jordan Retro 2017 . 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.airjordandealsblackfriday.com/ . Speaking Thursday on TSN 1050 Thursday, the Leafs GM also touched on the questions surrounding the teams leadership and the struggles of his big-name free-agent signing. “Its not from lack of effort from the coaching staff.Willy Caballero was Manchester Citys unlikely hero as his spot kick saves gave them a 3-1 penalty shoot-out victory over Liverpool following a 1-1 draw in the Capital One Cup final. City appeared to be on their way to victory in normal time after Fernandinho struck a low shot under Simon Mignolet shortly after the break, but Philippe Coutinho equalised with just seven minutes remaining.Caballero then saved three Liverpool penalties in the shoot-out before Yaya Toure stepped up to dispatch the winning spot kick. From Caballeros heroics to Jurgen Klopps cup final heartache, here are the main talking points from Wembley. Caballero the hero for City An emotional Willy Caballero was the hero for Pellegrinis men, saving three penalties in their 3-1 shoot-out victory over Liverpool Willy Caballeros inclusion ahead of Joe Hart was met with widespread disbelief after his FA Cup horror show against Chelsea a week ago, but he couldnt have scripted a better response. After an assured performance across the 120 minutes which included a vital stop from Divock Origi in extra-time, the Argentine produced three outstanding penalty saves to win the shootout.City looked to be in trouble when Emre Can scored and Fernandinho struck the post, but Caballero athletically saved from Lucas Leiva and Coutinho before producing a stunning one-handed stop to deny Adam Lallana. With tears in his eyes on the pitch at the end of the game, he told Sky Sports: It was a hard week for me but we have the trophy now and we have to enjoy it.The 34-year-old followed Pellegrini from Malaga and he was indebted to his manager for keeping faith in him for the final. Im blessed to have this coach, he said. He gives me the opportunity to come here and play in this cup and this final. Pellegrini was equally delighted. I know some media were ready to criticise me if Willy made a mistake but I trust him so I am very happy, he said. He deserves it.Klopp denied first Liverpool trophy Jurgen Klopp believes his Liverpool side need to bounce back and move on quickly after their Capital One Cup heartbreak While Manchester City celebrated their second League Cup in three seasons, Jurgen Klopp was left to rue more cup heartache. After Champions League and German Cup near-misses in his last three seasons at Borussia Dortmund, the German has now suffered cup final defeats in each of his last four seasons as a manager.Liverpools Europa League campaign means he could yet end his first season at Anfield with silverware, but its little consolation after coming so close at Wembley. The Reds rode their luck to stay in the game until the closing stages, but Coutinhos late equaliser gave them the momentum, and they had chances to win it in extra-time.Klopps disappointment was obvious after the game, but he called on his side to put the defeat behind them and focus on Wednesdays Premier League meeting at Anfield. You can fall down,, but you have to stand up, he told Sky Sports.dddddddddddd. We have the next chance on Wednesday against Man City. Its another game and another tournament and we have to carry on. We cant change this game now.Sterling gets what he went for Raheem Sterling missed two golden scoring opportunities against his old side When Raheem Sterling completed his acrimonious move from Anfield to the Etihad Stadium in the summer, he said the prospect of winning trophies year in, year out was his motivation. For a long time at Wembley, it appeared those words might come back to haunt him.The 21-year-old missed two glaring opportunities to double Citys lead after Fernandinhos opener. The first came on the hour-mark, when he side-footed David Silvas cross wide of Simon Mignolets post. Then, just three minutes before Coutinhos equaliser, he wildly miscued after fine work from Sergio Aguero on the right.It looked as though he might be made to pay the price in a frantic finale, but Caballeros saves and Toures winning penalty spared his blushes. Just seven months after joining City, Sterling has his first winners medal.Defeat harsh on battling Lucas Lucas Leivas penalty was saved by Willy Caballero in the shoot-out The defeat was particularly tough on Lucas Leiva, who performed heroically for Liverpool in an unfamiliar centre-back role before missing his penalty in the shoot-out. The Brazilian midfielder has been forced to fill in at the back due to a spate of defensive injuries, and his task was made even tougher at Wembley when partner Mamadou Sakho was forced off injured in the first half.Despite the upheaval and faced with the considerable threat of Sergio Aguero, Lucas excelled. He ranked first among his team-mates for interceptions (eight) and clearances (six) and also posted a passing accuracy of 87.7 per cent - the highest of any player to have started the game.His battling display was summed up by a brilliantly-timed tackle on Pablo Zabaleta and a vital headed clearance from a Toure free kick in the closing stages of extra-time, and it did not go unnoticed by Sky Sports pundits Jamie Carragher, who described him as the best player on the pitch, and Jamie Redknapp, who labelled him magnificent.Pellegrini kicks off trophy-winning send off Manuel Pellegrini insists he wants to finish his reign at Manchester City with as many trophies as possible The news of Pep Guardiolas impending arrival at the Etihad threatened to derail Pellegrinis last season in charge, but he marked his 150th game as Citys manager with his third trophy. In 2014, League Cup success was the catalyst to their Premier League triumph, and this year they will be hoping it can help them in the Champions League too.Pellegrini is certainly focused on the task ahead. We need to keep fighting for the title of the Premier League, he told Sky Sports as City celebrated on the Wembley turf. We are nine points behind the leader but we have one game in hand. Now we need to cut those points and continue in the Champions League.Former City man Niall Quinn is also feeling optimistic. Its now about Man City winning trophies, its not about Pellegrini leaving, he said. They are united as one. They are in with a chance of two more trophies, and Ive got to say he has been a class act during his time here.

Teemu Selanne will make a decision next week on whether or not hell return to the Anaheim Ducks for another season. Nike Shox Outlet . Selanne, 43, has already met with Ducks general manager Bob Murray and both sides agreed to talk again soon. "By next week, I know what Im going to do," he told The Orange County Register on Monday. The veteran right winger added that if he were to return, he would want to do so as a top-six player. "My point is, if theyre better than I am, I am expecting and accepting a smaller role," he explained to The Register. "But if Im better, I need to play more. I need to play top minutes. Thats what Im looking for. "Thats fair for everybody. To be honest, Ive been playing a big role. I dont know if Im ready to play 10-12 minutes a game. And thats what I want to make sure. If I play well, I get what I deserve. Sometimes its not like that. So I want to make sure Im treated the way I deserve." Selanne had 12 goals and 24 points in 46 games for the Ducks last season. He also scored a goal and tallied three points in Anaheims first-round loss to Detroit in the playoffs. He has spent 14 seasons of his 20-year NHL career with the Ducks, helping them win the Stanley Cup in 2007. Nike Shox Sale . -- Team after team passed on Andre Ellington in the draft. Nike Shox Cheap .

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Rays role in the final month of the season has been the Official Spoiler of American League Hopefuls, and that continues Tuesday as the Yankees come to Tropicana Field for a three-game series.The Yankees are still in postseason contention, four games back in the wild-card chase with 13 games to play, this despite a horrendous four-game sweep at Boston over the weekend. In all, theyve lost seven of eight games, a slump that started against the Rays last week, when they were just one game out of the wild card.We could have won all four of the games here, manager Joe Girardi said of the sweep at Boston. But were still playing the teams in front of us, some of them. We have to start over Tuesday.The Rays (64-85) have long been out of any contention and firmly in last in the AL East, but theyve managed to wreak havoc on the division -- they went 5-6 on their recent road trip, the longest of the season, but in doing so, took two of three from Toronto and split a four-game series with Baltimore, putting the brakes on both teams postseason chases.Were playing well, manager Kevin Cash said after Sundays loss. Were giving teams a good game all the way to the end. Weve won some of them and weve lost a couple tough ones.For the Yankees to make up four games in the final two weeks of the regular season in a deep logjam of potential wild cards, theyll neeed sweeps against teams like the Rays.Nike Shox Nz. And while Tuesdays starters might look similar in their stats -- Rays LHP Drew Smyly is 7-11 with a 4.98 ERA and Yankees RHP Michael Pineda is 6-11 with a 4.94 -- their success against their current opponent is a much different matter.Pineda is 0-3 against the Rays this season with a 9.31 ERA, his highest for any opponent in 2016. Hes given up 31 hits in 19 1/3 innings, including eight home runs, though four of those came in an 8-1 loss on April 24. The Rays are hitting .356 against him this season, and he hasnt even made it through five innings in his last three starts, including a two-run effort against the Rays.Smyly, on the other hand, is 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA against the Yankees this season -- that same April 24 game that was a low mark for Pineda saw Smyly hold the Yankees to one run in seven innings. Hes given up two runs in 13 innings this season against New York, and hes improved overall since the All-Star break, though his season has been marked too often by no-decisions and losses.The Rays wrap up their home schedule in the next week with three against the Yankees and three against the Red Sox, their last chance to make an impact on a division race they arent directly involved in. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

All is not well at Alan Pardews Crystal Palace. Adidas NMD Human Race Black .The Eagles (3-2-8) are the most out-of-form side in the Premier League, heading into Saturdays game against Southampton at Selhurst Park on the back of six straight defeats, including an embarrassing 5-4 loss to Swansea City a week ago.Pardews side is 17th in the table but tied on points with Hull City, who top the relegation zone based on a worse goal differential between the two.Palace came from behind against Swansea to lead as stoppage time approached, only to concede two sloppy late goals and consign themselves to yet another loss.I have a good team, Pardew said. The goals weve conceded dont reflect well on us. But I will reflect on this game and try and correct it for the next one.Weve had six defeats and a couple of them -- at Burnley and now at Swansea -- we shouldnt have had. Thats what has put us in this mess, and we need to get ourselves out of it.The group understand that we have options -- we can change the team around. We need to get a victory quickly.The problem for Pardew is that this current run of results fits a concerning trend in his career. The coach has developed a reputation for overseeing dramatic dips in form after making an initial positive impression at a new club. And it appears as if his time at Palace also fits that mold.Pardew has never lost seven straight matches during his time as a Premier League manager.For it is not just the last six games in which Pardews side have been off the pace. Palace have averaged just 0.69 points per game in 2016 (5-7-20), lower than not just every team in the Premier League but less than any other club in the four professional tiers of English football.While Palace have yielded an alarming 26 goals, scoring hasnt been Palaces problem this season as their 21 goals are the most outside the Premier Leagues top four. However, they may have trouble unlocking a Southampton defence that has conceded just 12 -- a defensive record that only Chelsea and Tottenham can better.Claude Puels Southampton (4-5-4) go into this match buoyed by their midweek cup win over Arsenal at the Emirates, while the Saints record against Palace will also give them confidence.The south-coast club have lost just one of 14 Premier League meetings with the Eagles and have conceded just three times in the clubs last six matches.However, its not all good news for the Saints, who are without Matty Targett and long-term absentee Jeremy Pied. Alex McCarthy is a doubt. And Puel has also confirmed that Tadic will not feature Saturday due to the broken nose he suffered while on international duty.For this moment, Tadic is not available for this game, Puel said. I dont when he will come back with the squad to play.Its important he can do good work now to come back fit and we will see with him and the staff. We want him to come back at a good physical level to play a strong game with us. He will wear a mask, but its a beautiful mask!Palace are without forwards Connor Wickham and Loic Remy due to injury, but goalkeeper Steve Mandanda is back in training after a knee problem. NMD XR1 Pink .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- With the Rio de Janeiro Olympics set to open, worried IOC members grilled top organizing officials about traffic jams, water pollution, security, and the absence of signage that gives the games its own distinct look. Cheap NFL Jerseys China .International Olympic President Thomas Bach also turned up the pressure Wednesday by talking straight to organizing committee president Carlos Nuzman and CEO Sidney Levy, who tried to soothe almost 100 IOC members.Its delivery time, Bach said. Here we go now. It really starts. We are very confident we will celebrate great games here in Rio and the world will be surprised to see what will happen here.Bach also cautioned: All praise is premature now. ... Its too early to celebrate.Prince Albert of Monaco asked about Rios severe water pollution, which soils Olympic venues for sailing, rowing, canoeing, triathlon and open-water swimming. Rio treats about half of its raw sewage, dumping the rest into the waters surrounding the area of 12 million people.The media has said a lot about the preparations of these games, and they say a lot about the levels of pollution, Albert said. How worried should we be?Rio spokesman Mario Andrada repeated assurances that bacterial pollution levels fall within World Health Organization guidelines. However, organizers have been criticized for the astronomical viral levels in the waters, and for not testing for this kind of pollution.Then theres surface debris.We do have a few problems with the floating garbage, Andrada acknowledged, explaining plans to use a dozen garbage collection boats in the sailing venue. Rio is also using barricades to block the flow of garbage from streams, and helicopters to spot garbage flows.Swiss IOC member Denis Oswald asked about traffic jams in the run-up to the games, which open Friday.Those whove had the opportunity to get to some of the venues have had lots of difficulties, Oswald said.Rio official Leo Gryner said there were some constraints getting the Olympic lane system to work. The lanes are to help get athletes and officials around town quickly. He said city officials were making changes.They are making the flow quicker and making sure all the athletes get to training and competition on time, Gyrner said.Rio commercial officer Renato Ciuchini was asked why there was so little signage -- signs that give the games it distinct look and help direct fans to venues. It was suggested the number installed only reached 15 percent.We are very confident the supplier will now install everything, but I believe a few will be installed a bit late, Ciuchini said. IOC officials said Christophe Dubi, the Olympic Games executive director, was holding an emergency meeting with the supplier.IOC member Alex Gilady asked Levy about his three largest worries. Levy listed transportation, security -- despite a force of 85,000 police and soldiers -- and finances.He said transportation was going well between the two largest venue clusters -- the Olympic Park and the northern cluster of Deodoro. He said that comprised 75 percent of the trips. The problem area was in urban Rio around Copacabana Beach and the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon where rowing takes place.Its a real challenge, Levy said.He also acknowledged the operating budget is under stress. That is a budget of 7.4 billion reals ($2.3 billion) for operating the games themselves, but not for building venues and roads.Rio organizers have been getting cash advances from the IOC but still maintain their budget is balanced. Several reports say the IOC recently turned down a $70 million loan to Rio.Away from the venues, Brazil is in its deepest recession since the 1930s.

Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes.

A statement from the worlds top-ranked player says all checks "were satisfactory and showed positive evolution" regarding the injury, which contributed to his loss to Stanislas Wawrinka in the final in Melbourne.SAN DIEGO -- Chargers rookie linebacker Manti Teo will sit out this week with a sprained right foot and miss San Diegos game at Chicago on Thursday. Teo wore a walking boot while watching Saturday mornings practice. "Manti has a foot sprain and he will be out this week and I will give you any further updates as the week goes on, or next week," coach Mike McCoy said. "But he will be out for the week." The team refused to make Teo available to reporters, saying he would speak Monday. McCoy, a rookie head coach, has been loath to share injury news. When asked how Teo, a starter who played briefly in Thursdays 31-10 loss to Seattle, sustained the injury, McCoy balked. "Im not ... he has a foot sprain," McCoy said. "I will say that and move on from there." McCoy said the injury was diagnosed after the game. However, when asked about injuries at Fridays news conference, the coach said: "As of right now, no one has reported any serious injuries from last night. I havent sat down with our trainer yet, but I will in a little bit. NFL Jerseys Supply. " This is the second time in camp that McCoys information on injured players has turned out to be less than forthcoming. On Tuesday, wide receiver Danario Alexander tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in practice, a season-ending injury. McCoy downplayed the injury after practice. A few hours later, the team announced the severity of the injury. Now Teo is out for one game, and maybe longer. "I think any player is disappointed when they have a little injury that is going to keep him out for a little bit," McCoy said of Teos reaction to be sidelined. "But its part of the game and he will do whatever he can to get back on the field as quickly as possible." Running back Danny Woodhead missed another practice on Saturday. McCoy wouldnt reveal the injury or Woodheads anticipated return. "No, Im not going to explain, no" McCoy said. "Hell be back on the field when he is ready to go." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- This time, Seattle won it at the goal line.It certainly wont make up for the Super Bowl loss two seasons back, but the Seahawks goal-line stand lifted them to a 31-24 victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday night.Tom Brady couldnt connect with Rob Gronkowski on a fade pattern on fourth down as New England (7-2) failed four times from inside the 2 in the dying moments.He was playing off me ... pretty far, farther than usual, Gronkowski said about safety Kam Chancellor. You dont usually see that. A fade, I had to go up to him and initiate a move. I just wanted get on top of his toes, that is what you are taught. I just got up on his toes too much.It was reminiscent of how the Seahawks (6-2-1) lost the 2015 Super Bowl when Malcolm Butler intercepted at the goal line to win the NFL title for the Patriots.When it got down to it, when you get a chance to win a game on the 1-yard line , there aint nothing like it in football, said coach Pete Carroll, whose Seahawks worked on defending that exact play at the end of Fridays practice. Its one of the great challenges that a team and a defense gets. And our guys just came through, and hung in there, and just fought for every inch and let us walk away with the win.Doug Baldwin caught three touchdown passes from Russell Wilson, including a 15-yarder for the final margin. Strangely, Seattle went for 2 points and failed on the conversion, leaving the Patriots a chance to tie with a touchdown and an extra point kick.`We wanted to make it a two-possession game, Carroll said.But LeGarrette Blount, who earlier rushed for three touchdowns and has 12 this season, couldnt get into the end zone from close range, nor could Brady on a pair of sneaks.Our execution wasnt great, Brady said, and they put a lot of pressure on you defensively. They have a lot of good players and they make you earn every yard. They play to the end, they have been in a lot of close games.It came down to a yard at the end and we didnt get it.Wilson finished 25 for 37 for 348 yards and the three scores to Baldwin.

That set up Stephen Gostkowskis 30-yard field goal for a 24-22 lead.Or maybe it was rookie C.J. Prosises 38-yard catch between two defenders to the New England 2, leading to Hauschkas fourth field goal after a strong goal-line stand by the Patriots.Or any of Baldwins three TD receptions.Or, in the end, the power of Seattles interior defense on the short runs by Blount or Brady, and Kam Chancellors tight coverage on Gronkowski on the final play.BLOUNT INSTRUMENTBlount scored twice on 1-yard rushes, bulling his way into the end zone on the second score. He also scooted left for a 13-yard TD in the third period for a 21-19 lead.PICK-FREE NO MOREBradys interception in the second quarter derailed the Patriots chance to tie the 1960 Cleveland Browns for an NFL-record nine games without an interception. DeShawn Shead made the pick.New England had thrown 258 passes before being intercepted.DONT DEFERSomeday perhaps teams will learn not to defer when winning the opening coin toss against New England.

The Boston Bruins and Dallas Stars have completed a blockbuster seven-player trade that will see two prominent players swap jerseys. Asics Gel Lyte v Zwart. The Bruins traded Tyler Seguin, Rich Peverley and Ryan Button to the Stars in exchange for Loui Eriksson, Joe Morrow, Reilly Smith, and Matt Fraser. TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com says that Eriksson agreed to waive his no-trade clause earlier on Thursday. Seguin has yet to begin a six-year, $34.5 million contract he signed just prior to the beginning of the lockout. The deal has an annual salary cap hit of $5.75 million and runs until the 2018-19 season. The 21-year-old forward was selected second overall in the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft by the Bruins and spent the first three seasons of his NHL career with the team. Seguin was the first of three players selected by the Bruins with draft picks acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs in a 2009 deal for forward Phil Kessel. In his rookie season, Seguin had 22 points in 74 regular season games and then scored three goals and seven points in 13 playoff games as the Bruins captured the Stanley Cup in 2011. Eriksson, 27, has three years remaining on his contract and has a cap hit of $4.25 million per year. He played in all 48 games last season for Dallas, recording 12 goals and 17 assists. In the four seasons before the lockout, the winger recorded at least 26 goals in each campaign. In 501 career regular season games, Eriksson has posted 150 goals and 207 assists. Peverley, 30, had six goals and 12 assists in 47 games for the Bruins this season. The seven-year NHL veteran began his career with the Nashville Predators and played for the Atlanta Thrashers before being traded to Boston in February, 2011. Morrow, 20, is an Edmonton native who played last season in the American Hockey League. In 66 games with Scranton Wilkes-Barre and Texas, the defenceman had five goals and 14 assists. He was Pittsburghs first-round pick (23rd overall) in the 2011 draft, and was traded to Dallas as part of the Brenden Morrow deal on Mar. 24 this year. Smith is a 22-year-old Toronto native who appeared in 37 games for the Stars last season. The forward had three goals and six assists and was the Stars third-round draft choice in 2009. Fraser, 23, hails from Red Deer, Alberta and had one goal and two assists in 12 games for Dallas last season. The forward signed as a free agent by the Stars in November, 2010. Button, 22, is an Edmonton native who split his time last season between the ECHL and the AHL. The blueliner was Bostons third-round pick in 2009. Asics Gel Lyte 3 Flamingo . President of baseball operations Larry Beinfest was fired Friday after 12 years with the Marlins. The move came as the team neared the end of its third consecutive last-place season in the NL East. Onitsuka Tiger Outlet . Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield. http://www.ihartyou.com/asics-gel-kinsei-6.html . "It was nerve-wracking, but we pulled through," said Collaros, who threw four touchdown passes to lead the Toronto Argonauts (8-4) to a 33-27 win over the Calgary Stampeders (9-3) in front of 28,781 fans at McMahon Stadium. HOUSTON -- Rougned Odor put one leg up on a chair as he talked to a reporter, giving teammate Carlos Gomez the perfect pedestal to drape a replica WWE championship belt encrusted with dozens of plastic crystals across his knee.It was an appropriate gesture for the man who delivered the knockout blow to the Houston Astros in the 12th round on Monday night.Odor had three hits and three RBI, including a solo homer in the 12th inning that lifted the Texas Rangers to a 4-3 victory.I always like to play against the Astros, he said. I like to hit in this ballpark. I just like it. I feel really comfortable here.Odor launched his 31st homer over the short fence in right field off James Hoyt (1-1) to put Texas on top.Hes certainly hurt us a number of times over the last couple of years, Houston manager A.J. Hinch said. Hes a good hitter. Hes a hitter that does damage. Certainly, against us, he comes up big at the worst times.Odor, who finished a triple shy of the cycle, has six home runs, six doubles and 19 RBI in 16 games against Houston this season.When he sees a mistake he puts a great swing on it, manager Jeff Banister said. I think he did that tonight in three different at-bats.The Rangers, who have the best record in the American League at 86-59, improved to 14-3 against AL West rival Houston this season.Keone Kela (5-1) allowed one hit in two scoreless innings for the win and Jake Diekman pitched a perfect 12th for his fourth save.Evan Gattis hit a solo homer off Sam Dyson with one out in the ninth to tie it at 3. The towering shot, which landed on the train tracks atop the left field wall, was the 26th homer for Gattis this season.Marwin Gonzalez singled after that, but the inning ended when Colby Rasmus struck out and Gonzalez was caught trying to steal second base.Sometimes the bounces dont go your way, Hinch said. Theres a lot of frustrating parts of this game, but none more so than the final score.Odor drove in one run with a ground-rule double in the Rangers two-run first inning. His RBI sinngle in the third made it 3-1. Asics Aaron Sneakers Heren. Texas starter Martin Perez yielded three hits and two runs with six strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings.Gonzalez had an RBI single for Houston in the second and Tony Kemps pinch-hit, ground-rule double got Houston within one in the seventh.Houston starter Doug Fister allowed six hits and three runs in five innings. Hes had a tough September, allowing 25 hits and 17 runs combined in three starts.Astros rookie Alex Bregman went 0 for 5 with three strikeouts to end a 10-game hitting streak and Carlos Correa was 0 for 3 with a pair of walks to snap his hitting streak of 13 games.TRAINERS ROOMAstros: LHP Dallas Keuchel, who hasnt pitched since Aug. 27 because of inflammation in his left shoulder, will be shut down until at least Wednesday. Keuchel said they will decide then what his next step will be. Keuchel has had a tough follow-up to a 2015 season where he won a career-high 20 games and was voted the AL Cy Young Winner. Houstons ace is 9-12 with a 4.55 ERA.ALL AL WESTMonday was the first of 19 straight games the Astros will play against teams in the AL West to end the season. They have seven games remaining against the Angels, six with the Mariners and three against the Athletics.WHAT A CATCHElvis Andrus robbed Houstons Max Stassi of a hit when he dived to grab a low liner for the first out of the 10th inning. Andrus sailed through the air to make the catch, hit the ground and rolled over before holding his glove up to display the ball.UP NEXTRangers: A.J. Griffin (7-4, 4.92) will start for Texas on Tuesday. Griffin looks to bounce back after giving up a career-high eight runs in four innings of an 8-3 loss to Seattle on Wednesday.Astros: Brad Peacock (0-0, 3.38) is scheduled to start his second game on Tuesday. He allowed five hits and one run in 3 2/3 innings of a 5-1 win against Cleveland in his first start this season on Tuesday. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. Puma Suede Heart Satin . -- Weston Steelhammer watched the first half from the locker room. No doubt, Navy wishes he wouldve stayed put.Suspended for a half because of a targeting penalty the week before, the Air Force senior safety provided a second-half spark for a defense that was already playing lights out.Steelhammer led a dominating defensive effort , tailback Tim McVey scored twice, including a 62-yard TD catch, and Air Force beat Navy 28-14 on Saturday to take a big step toward claiming the Commander-in-Chiefs Trophy.Jalen Robinette had five catches for 163 yards for Air Force (4-0), which extended its home winning streak to 15 straight. His 75-yard TD catch late in the third quarter broke open the game.The Midshipmen (3-1) averted a shutout on a 6-yard TD run by Shawn White with 8:33 remaining. The option-oriented team finished with more yards passing (260) than rushing (57). For that matter, so did Air Force (257 yards passing, 173 on the ground).Weve got plenty of growing to do, Air Force coach Troy Calhoun said. Not that this wasnt a good step, because it certainly was.Steelhammer sat out the first half after being disqualified for a targeting call in the third quarter last weekend at Utah State. All dressed up and nowhere to go, he watched the opening half from the locker room, but soon made his presence felt by picking off a Will Worth pass with Navy driving in the third quarter. He had another late in the game.The guys out there did a great job in the first half of keeping us in it, Steelhammer said. I didnt want to be too much of a distraction coming back.No worry about that. Hes the leader of a unit that had six sacks, eight tackles for loss, a fumble recovery and held a Navy team averaging 316.3 yards rushing to just 57.There are still a lot of things we kind of goofed up, said Brodie Hicks, who had a blocked punt in the second quarter. But we definitely had a really good game.Heres a stat that bodes well for Air Force: The previous 19 winners of this game have gone on to win the Commander-in-Chiefs Trophy, which represents superiority among the three service academies. The Falcons need only to beat Army on Nov. 5 to earn the trophy. If the teams all finish 1-1 in the round-robin competition, the previous winner -- Navy -- retains the prize.They got after us, Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said. I was really impressed with Air Force. I thought they played a really good game.The first half was ruled by defense with the only score a field goal. A surprise, too, given that Air Force and Navy came in averaging a combined 906 yards per game.Air Force began to pull away in the third quarter when McVey scored on a 1-yard plunge. Robinette soon followed with his TD catch from Nate Romine, who finished 8 of 14 for a career-high 257 yards and two scores.POLL IMPLICATIONSAir Force will definitely receive some votes this week. The Falcons havent appeared in the AP poll since 2010.However, its hardly on their mind.Its great to talk about all those rankings and numbers, Romine said. But all that matters is who you have next week and how you prepare for them.QUITE A GRABRobinette was impressed by McVeys one-handed, spinning catch . So much so that hes going to add it to his list of plays.Im still in shock about it, Robinette said.THE TAKEAWAYNAVY: The Midshipmen had a 19-game win streak against unranked opponents snapped. Just couldnt get their vaunted rushing attack on track.AIR FORCE: Off to a 4-0 start for the first time since 2003. The Falcons relied on a defense that recorded six sacks, eight tackles for loss and forced a fumble.UP NEXTNAVY: Host a Houston squad led by Heisman Trophy hopeful Greg Ward Jr., who accounted for five touchdowns in a 42-14 win over Connecticut on Thursday.We have a top-5 team coming into our stadium next week so lick our wounds and move on, Niumatalolo said.AIR FORCE: Travel to Wyoming next Saturday.

NEW ORLEANS -- A jury will begin deliberating Sunday to decide the fate of Cardell Hayes, the man accused of murdering former New Orleans Saints standout Will Smith and attempting to murder Smiths wife, Racquel, on the night of April 9, 2016.Hayes, 29, is claiming self-defense.During his nearly two-hour testimony Saturday, Hayes painted a picture of Smith, 34, as an angry, aggressive and possibly drunk attacker who was about to kill Hayes before Hayes shot Smith eight times, including seven times in the back.I didnt want to kill Will Smith. I didnt want to kill nobody, said Hayes, who insisted he didnt begin firing at Smith until he saw a black weapon in Smiths hand and heard a pop.Hayes was the only witness to place a gun in Smiths hand that night. Police say a loaded gun was found in Smiths SUV. Prosecutors say it was never fired that night and that Smith never grabbed it.Hayes also testified that he did not shoot Smiths wife, Racquel, who was hit once through both of her legs before Will Smith was shot. Hayes said he did not know who shot Racquel, who he said was attempting to hold her husband back and yelling something to the effect of No, baby, no as Smith reached into his vehicle to retrieve a gun.Hayes insisted he feared for his life after Smith addressed him with a racial epithet and told him, ... you got your gun. Well, Im going to get mine, and Ill show you what to do with it.What else could I think? I think hes gonna show me what to do with it. I think hes about to kill me, said Hayes, who said Smith threw a cup containing some type of alcohol at him and repeatedly punched him in the face before threatening to grab his gun. I knew I was gonna be shot. I probably wouldve died. I knew for a fact I was gonna get shot.Hayes also testified that his .45-caliber handgun fired several times rapidly and that he didnt expect it to go off that many times and tried to stop it.?Asked why he didnt turn and run, Hayes said he wasnt going to leave his friend Kevin ONeal behind and that he was sure he would have been shot while trying to flee.The prosecution, meanwhile, spent most of the day poking holes in Hayes claims, including pointing out that no other witnesses, including ONeal, saw Smith retreat into his vehicle, heard Smith threaten to get his own gun or saw Smith hit Hayes.Prosecutors pointed out that Hayes never told investigators that he saw a gun in Smiths hands that night, nor did he mention that detail in two conversations he had that were recorded on the scene immediately following the shooting. Hayes repeatedly replied that he never gave a full statement to anyone.Prosecutors also called a rebuttal witness, a firearms expert who said there was no evidence that Smith had fired a gun when he died.According to the prosecution, Hayes claims about where he was standing when he shot Smith didnt match ballistic evidence or account for how a shell casing woound up inside Smiths vehicle. Nike Free Rn Dame. ?Hayes said he couldnt account for what others saw and heard, but he insisted he was telling the truth.The defense has hinted that someone might have removed evidence from the crime scene. Earlier this year, defense attorney John Fuller said a witness claimed to see Smiths friend and former New Orleans police captain Billy Ceravolo reach into the car. But those claims were proven false, as Ceravolo was not yet on the scene at the time the witness claimed to have seen him.The fatal confrontation began that night after a pair of traffic incidents. The first happened when Smith appeared to bump Hayes, then drive away; the second occurred when Hayes crashed into Smiths Mercedes SUV after pursuing him a couple blocks away.Hayes insisted the crash was accidental -- that he was looking down to unlock his phone and call 911 while ONeal was trying to get Smiths license plate number. An expert testified Sunday that the crash appeared to be intentional.Hayes said that following the collision, he was immediately rushed by a Spanish guy who was a passenger in Smiths SUV, later identified as Richard Hernandez. Multiple witnesses have testified to Hernandezs being the most aggressive person on the scene, removing his shirt and acting ridiculous.Hayes testified that he saw Hernandez remove a shiny object from his pocket -- possibly a knife -- and wrap it in his shirt before Hayes decided to retrieve his gun from the car. Hayes said Hernandez was the first one to yell out that Hayes had a gun, but he would be afraid to use it.Hayes later testified that Hernandez ran away with his wife way before shots were fired.Saints coach Sean Payton made his first appearance in court Saturday and sat next to Racquel for part of the morning. Payton had offered Smith a job as a coaching intern this summer, before he was killed.Payton left in the middle of the proceedings to catch the team flight to Tampa. Its possible the Saints could be on the field against the Buccaneers on Sunday afternoon when the verdict is reached. Closing arguments are scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. ET.Hayes, who played semi-pro football and played on the defensive line like Smith, said he did not know he had killed Smith until later that night, when he was in jail. But when asked Saturday if he was familiar with Smith, Hayes replied, Yes, I really was. Not personally, but I knew him as a good football player. Hayes said he tried to incorporate some of Smiths game into his own.Hayes appeared comfortable and focused throughout most of his testimony, directing many of his answers to the jury. He got choked up multiple times, especially when talking about his 6-year-old son, Cardell Jr.Information from The Associated Press was included in this report. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Tuesday was only the first of six release days for the College Football Playoff rankings. Wholesale Jerseys From China . There is still plenty of time for teams to make or break their playoff hopes.LSU is not done yet.Nebraska? Going after the seemingly vulnerable Buckeyes.Week 10 features just two games between ranked teams, but they will have major playoff implications in the SEC and Big Ten. Heres a look at whats at stake for all four teams in the games with the biggest impact:Alabama at LSUIf Alabama wins: Alabama can knock LSU out of the conversation for good and further assert itself as the best team in the SEC and the country with another road win against a ranked division opponent. ESPNs Football Power Index projects that if the Tide win on Saturday, their chances of winning the SEC increase to 74 percent. The FPI favors Alabama to win each of its four remaining games but shows this one will be the most difficult, with a 65.5 percent chance to win.?If LSU wins: Hello, chaos. LSU would own a head-to-head tiebreaker over the defending national champs but would still have to win out and need Auburn to lose again. Winning out will be tough, with a road trip to Texas A&M on Thanksgiving -- just five days after playing the rescheduled Florida game -- but its possible Auburn could lose to Alabama in the Iron Bowl. ESPNs FPI gives Auburn a 23.3 percent chance to beat the Tide. The more likely scenario is Alabama wins out and LSU loses again, leaving the Tide right where they started -- at the top of the SEC. Another possibility is Alabama loses a second time and Texas A&M wins out -- leaving the Aggies atop the West. See? Chaos.Nebraska at Ohio State (8 p.m. ET, ABC)If Nebraska wins: The two-loss Buckeyes likely would be doomed in the playoff picture, while the Huskers stock -- and their chances of winning the West division -- would both increase. According to the FPI, Nebraska has a 25 percent chance to win the West, but if it can beat Ohio State, that will rise to 56 percent. This is the second of back-to-back road games against ranked opponents for Nebraska, after losing last week to Wisconsin. This is the kind of statement win that would catch the committees attention, and Nebraska needs it. So far its only road wins have come against unranked Northwestern and Indiana.If Ohio State wins: The Buckeyes will keep their playoff hopes alive and continue staring down what should be a season-defining home game on Nov. 26 against Michigan to determine the East winner. Nebraska will drop into a two-loss tie with Wisconsin in the West, and the Badgers will hold the tiebreaker by virtue of their victory Saturday over the Huskers. Nebraskas only hope if it loses would be for Wisconsin to lose again, but the Badgers are favored by the FPI to win each of their four remaining games against unranked opponents. With four Power 5 undefeated teams remaining and a strong collection of one-loss teams for the committee to choose from, Ohio State cant afford to slip up at home on Saturday. One more scenario to consider: Penn State still can win the East if it wins out and Michigan loses twice.Playoff pictureTexas A&M at Mississippi State: The Aggies are on the bubble, and they are favored by the FPI to win each of their remaining games. This is their last road test of the season, and if they can win out, they will stay in the debate.Vanderbilt at Auburn: The Tigers have won five straight and played their way back into the conference title conversation. They have to win out, and hope Texas A&M stumbles again.Louisville at Boston College: After close wins against Duke and Virginia, Louisville cant afford another nail-biter against an unranked 4-4 team. Its time for the Cards to earn some style points.Wisconsin at Northwestern: The Badgers are in must-win mode from here on out. Last weeks important win over Nebraska wont amount to anything if Wisconsin loses a third league game.Maryland at Michigan: Hey look, another home game! This will be the Wolverines seventh game in Ann Arbor, and another one against an unranked opponent likely wont move the committee much.Syracuse at Clemson: Clemson is coming off a critical, emotional win at Florida State, and this could be closer than some might expect. Syracuse is coming off back-to-back wins and had a bye week to prepare.Florida at Arkansas: The Gators have a clear path to winning the SEC East, especially now that Tennessee has collapsed with three losses, but this is a must-win. The only team the Gators have beaten on the road is Vandy, and they still have to play at LSU on Nov. 19. If Florida loses at Arkansas and at LSU, Kentucky or a three-loss Tennessee will win the East. Thats cringe-worthy.Washington at Cal: The Huskies have played the easiest nonconference schedule in the FBS, which is why road wins are critical to impress the committee. They got a big one last week against Utah, but they cant afford to slip up against a team that is 2-3 in league play.SuperlativesPlayer in the spotlight: LSU running back Leonard Fournette. Fournette has come back from an ankle injury this season and is coming off a school-record 284 rushing yards against Ole Miss. Last year, though, Alabama held Fournette to a season-low 31 yards on 19 carries, and he was hit at or behind the line of scrimmage 11 times. He -- and his offensive line -- will be challenged again, as Alabamas run defense is No. 1 in yards per rush and rushing touchdowns allowed.Matchup to watch: Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. versus Ohio States secondary. Armstrong has thrown 11 touchdowns and seven interceptions this season. The Buckeyes are fourth in turnover margin (plus-1.25 per game), third in pass efficiency defense (93.5) and ninth in passing yards allowed (171.1). Sophomore safety Malik Hooker is tied for 11th nationally with four interceptions.Upset watch: Florida at Arkansas. Arkansas quarterback Austin Allen is expected to return from a knee injury, and he needs to be healthy in order for a chance at the upset. The Razorbacks had a bye week to recover from their embarrassing 56-3 loss to Auburn, and they now have back-to-back home games to reset.Can-miss game: Tennessee Tech at Tennessee. Its not even that Tennessee Tech is a 3-5 FCS team -- its that the Vols have lost three straight, star running back Jalen Hurd has decided to transfer and Rocky Flop is the trendy nickname.Dont forget about: Kentucky. If the Wildcats win out -- and Florida loses twice (think at Arkansas and at LSU) -- then Kentucky wins the East. Repeat: Kentucky can win the East. The Wildcats host Georgia on Saturday and then finish their SEC schedule on Nov. 12 at Tennessee.Under-the-radar game: Air Force at Army. With a win, Air Force clinches the Commander-in-Chiefs Trophy for the fourth time in the past seven seasons. If Army wins, the Black Knights would have a chance to clinch the trophy against Navy on Dec. 10. Army hasnt won the trophy since 1996.Hold that thought: Dont hand Clemson the Atlantic Division title just yet. Clemson can clinch it on Saturday if it beats Syracuse and both Louisville and Wake Forest lose. Wholesale Jerseys China . 9.
