CLEVELAND -- Robert Griffin III gave the Cleveland Browns some hope with a strong home debut. Clint Dempsey USA Jersey .Griffin threw two touchdown passes in the first half in the Browns 24-13 exhibition loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night.Griffin found wide receiver Terrelle Pryor streaking down the right sideline on Clevelands second drive of the game for a 50-yard scoring strike. Griffin connected with tight end Gary Barnridge for a 22-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.Those were two great plays, Griffin said. TP running by a guy and making a play and Gary making an amazing catch. We were able to get things clicking a little bit working the long ballGriffin signed with the Browns (0-2) after being released by Washington. He was 6 of 8 for 96 yards in four series, and ran for 36 yards on three carries -- including a 22-yarder.Devonta Freeman scored on a 19-yard run to cap Atlantas first drive. Matt Ryan played three series and completed 6 of 11 passes for 78 yards.Atlanta (2-0) trailed 13-10 at halftime, but went ahead on Brandon Wilds 32-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. The Falcons gained 498 yards, including 224 on the ground.The real story was the line of scrimmage, Atlanta coach Dan Quinn said. For us to have the ability to run the ball like we did, thats a real plus.ROOKIE WATCHFalcons: LBs Deion Jones and DeVondre Campbell were in the starting lineup. Jones, a second-round draft pick, played in the middle while Campbell, taken in the fourth round, played on the weak side.POSITION BATTLESFalcons: QB Matt Simms, who is competing with Sean Renfree for the No. 3 spot, directed a 15-play, 98-yard drive for a fourth-quarter touchdown.Browns: K Patrick Murray, who is competing with Travis Coon, made an extra point after Clevelands first touchdown.INJURY UPDATEFalcons: PK Nick Rose handled all of the teams kicking duties because of injuries. PK Matt Bryant didnt play beacuse of tightness, according to the team. P Matt Bosher left the game with a chest injury after taking a big hit from LB Tank Carder covering a kick. DE/LB Vic Beasley (shoulder), RB Terron Ward (ankle) and S Kemal Ishmael (shoulder) were also out.Browns: WR Corey Coleman, the teams No. 1 draft pick, has yet to play in the preseason because of a left hamstring injury. RT Joe Thomas (back), CB Joe Haden (ankle) and WR Andrew Hawkins (hamstring) were also out. S Rahim Moore was taken to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion.NOT READY YETWR Josh Gordon (quad) returned to practice Tuesday but didnt play. He is suspended for the first four games of the regular season after missing the entire 2015 season for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy.QUOTABLEFalcons: I thought we were sharper than we were in the first week. We made some plays in the passing game and we ran the ball well. -- Ryan on the offense.Browns: As a receiver, if the ball is anywhere in your area you try and make the catch. It was a good ball, great protection. -- Pryor on his touchdown catch.OOPSC Cam Erving fired a shotgun snap over Griffins head in the second quarter, sending the quarterback racing for the ball. Griffin recovered for what would have been a 24-yard loss, but had his facemask grabbed by linebacker Sean Weatherspoon.I dont want to have to coach that, but its something we have to fix, Browns coach Hue Jackson said. That was disappointing to have the ball go over the quarterbacks head.FALCONS DEBUTVeteran DE Dwight Freeney, signed last week, played his first game with Atlanta after signing last week.Its hard to get the rust off, he said. I got about six to eight plays. I felt a little rusty, but thats what preseason is for.FAMILIAR FACEFalcons C Alex Mack, who played his first seven seasons with the Browns, visited with several of his former teammates on the field before the game. Brad Guzan Jersey . The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim. Aron Johannsson USA Jersey .S. Open champion Justin Rose birdied the first hole with a blind shot he hit to a foot of the pin, and he stayed in front Tuesday until he completed a 4-under 67 for a two-shot lead over Jason Dufner in PGA Grand Slam of Golf. . -- Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Alrdridge were again the go-to duo for the Trail Blazers against the Kings. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Brazil is beefing up funding for the military to help it meet security needs for the Olympics that open next month in Rio de Janeiro, the interim government announced Tuesday.Sports Minister Leonardo Picciani said that despite a budget crunch, the government is granting the armed forces an additional $24 million at the request of the Defense Ministry.It is the necessary amount for our defense forces to do their work and that money will be available, Picciani told journalists after a meeting at the presidential palace in the capital of Brasilia.The minister said the additional funds are meant for final adjustments in security before the sports extravaganza.Troops will begin patrolling sports venues July 24.Some 85,000 police and soldiers are to be deployed during the Aug. 5-21 games. Thats roughly twice the security contingent that was usedd at the London Olympics. Bobby Wood Jersey. Rio de Janeiro state has slashed budgets across the board, including that of the police. Its revenues have been particularly hard-hit by the recession besetting Brazil, which saw the economy shrink around 4 percent last year.Two weeks ago, angry civil police officers staged a strike, with one contingent greeting visitors at Rios international airport with a sign reading, in English: Welcome to Hell. Police and firefighters dont get paid; Whoever comes to Rio de Janeiro will not be safe.In June, Gov. Francisco Dornelles declared a state of financial disaster that paved the way for $860 million in emergency aid from the federal government. Part of those funds were earmarked for Olympic security.

Unbeaten colt Winning Rupert has returned to Brisbane where he will try to keep his record intact and put himself in line for a lucrative bonus. Air Max 90 Noir Et Blanc Homme .Trained in Sydney by Bjorn Baker, Winning Rupert has raced twice, both times in Queensland for a debut win at the Sunsine Coast followed by the Group Two Champagne Classic at Doomben.He runs in a $100,000 race for three-year-olds at Eagle Farm on Saturday, the first leg of a three-race series including the Gold Edition Plate and the Vo Rogue Plate which offers a $200,000 bonus to any horse that can win all three.The triple crown races look ideal for Winning Rupert because they are set weights and he is a Group Two winner, Baker said.They are also the perfect lead-in to the Magic Millions Guineas in January.Baker has carefully managed Winning Ruperts career, giving him three barrier trials before sending him to Brisbane.We were going to take him to Melbourne for the spring but that didnt work out. So it has been our aim to take him north for the summer, he said.Winning Rupert has won all three trials with race jockey Jeff Lloyd flying to Sydney on November 22 to ride him in his most recent.His trials have been good and so is his trackwork so I would disappointed if he doesnt race well on Saturday, Baker said.Baker is also hoping for a Group Three win at the meeting with Coolring.The six-year-old was among the favourites for the Keith Noud Quality at Eagle Farm two weeks ago but laboured into eighth placed behind Too Good To Refuse.Coolring just didnt seem to handle Eagle Farm last time, Baker said.His first-up run when fourth behind Kaepernick at Randwick was good. He has raced well in Queensland before winning the Prime Ministers Cup and finishing second in a Weetwood.The stables promising two-year-old Goodfella will miss Eagle Farm and run instead in Sydney.He is a Magic Millions horse and he will need to win to be a chance of heading to Queensland for the Two-Year-Old Classic, Baker said.Baker won the $2 million race with Unencumbered in 2014.Meanwhile, trainer Gerald Ryan did not accept with either of his nominations for the George Moore Stakes i- Bachman and InzNout.They look better placed in the Starlight Stakes at Rosehill. Bachman will head up there later for races like the Magic Millions Cup, Ryan said.

Thats not a comment on the suspension that banished the Portland Winterhawks general manager and coach from his Western Hockey League teams bench for most of the 2012-13 season. . Ivanovic was leading 7-5, 1-0 when Hantuchova withdrew after falling 0-40 behind in the second game. The match started slowly for Ivanovic, who surrendered her first two serves as Hantuchova took a 5-3 lead. Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge says his club will attempt to lure suspended Essendon star Michael Hurley should he decide to leave the Bombers.Hurley is one of six suspended Essendon players yet to declare their intentions once their 12-month anti-doping bans end later this year, leading to speculation he will consider offers from other clubs.The 26-year-old is contracted for next season, and the Bombers are keen to keep him, but it is believed they wont stand in his way if he decides to depart the club.Theres a handful of Essendon players who are obviously making a decision around their futures - whether theyre going to re-commit to the Bombers or whether they feel like theyve got a different path ahead of them, Beveridge said.If anyone of the boys who hasnt made a decision decides they want to move on, us, like the other 16 clubs, need to consider the prospect on them coming in.Michael is one of those (players). Hes a very, very good player and if thats the decision Michael makes, ultimately we need to make sure we throw our hat in the ring.Adelaide and North Melbourne have also been speculated to be in the hunt to lure the star defender.Hurley, JJobe Watson, Michael Hibberd, Tayte Pears, Ben Howlett and Brent Stanton are the other suspended Essendon players still to declare their intentions for next season. Air Max 2017 Noir Et Or. Hurley would be a welcome addition to a side on the cusp of challenging for a premiership but Beveridge has more pressing concerns.The Bulldogs have been in damage control of late in the face of a flurry of injuries but Beveridge dismissed the notion his sides premiership ambitions will have to wait until next year as a result.Try telling our players that, he said.We feel like theres still a lot of growth left in us ... we feel like theres some boys who can definitely come into the side and help us on our way.Beveridge revealed there is a slim chance Dogs forward Stewart Crameri, also serving an anti-doping suspension stemming from Essendons supplements program, could play finals this season if the players appeal is upheld by a Swiss court.Beveridge signed a three-year contract extension on Tuesday, tying him to the club until the end of the 2020 season.

North Melbourne coach Brad Scott has backed star ruckman Todd Goldstein to quickly make a badly-needed return to his best AFL form. Nicklas Lidstrom Red Wings Jersey .The All-Australian has been noticeably below par since hurting his knee in the round-10 loss to Sydney.Part-time Port Adelaide ruckman Jackson Trengove crucially had his measure in last Saturdays loss.Hes an All-Australian ruckman, isnt he, so hes held to a higher account than most, as he should be, Scott said.No-one is more disappointed with poor performances individually than Goldy.His best form is just around the corner.It is no coincidence that the Kangaroos have also slid during Goldsteins form dip, losing six of their last seven games.One of the features of that slump has been a bad run with injury.But Scott said Goldstein was now in full training.He added fellow stars Jarrad Waite and Daniel Wells had pulled up well, having returned to the AFL last weekend from injuries.After opening the season with a nine-game winning streak, there is now speculation that the Roos remarkably could miss the finals.Certainly Collingwood can smell blood ahead of Friday nights massive game against North at Etihad Stadium.Magpies coach Nathan Buckley said they must win to keep their slim top-eight hopes alive and they would approach the match as a final.I just see it as round 18 - its an important game, but they all are at this stage of the year, Scott responded.It will be a pressurised environment.If thats a finals-like atmosphere, then thats a good thing.Scott confirmed key forward Drew Petrie would play against Collingwood.Petrie is another prominent North player under scrutiny.Its about the (forward) unit itself and the unit hasnt functioned very well, Scott said.Drew is the most experienced part of that.He knows that a lot falls to him.When he wasnt contributing on the scoreboard in the first half of the year, I cant recall there being a great level of criticism.Scott said North knew all about pressure, having played in the last two finals series, and is confident they will rally.At times in this really tough industry, you come across some inclement weather, he said.But the weather always clears and we have to make sure that our response to that inclement weather is really solid and we stay the course.The worst thing we could do now is panic and set ourselves off course.

METAIRIE, La. Amara Darboh Jersey . -- Its not just fantasy football owners who were frustrated by Brandin Cooks lack of involvement in the New Orleans Saints 49-21 rout of the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.The Saints wide receiver hinted at his frustration in an Instagram post Monday about needing to become a businessman after he was targeted zero times in 45 snaps on Sunday.Without Cooks involvement, the Saints (5-6) posted a season-high 49 points and racked up 555 yards on Sunday.Sources have indicated throughout this season that Cooks has felt a growing frustration with his usage -- mostly the idea that he is used too often as a clear-out receiver instead of as a primary option.Cooks discontentment also came up earlier when he had a total of five catches for 44 yards in Weeks 3 and 4.Cooks (5-10, 189 pounds) has two of the four longest receptions in the NFL this season -- a 98-yard touchdown in Week 1 and an 87-yard touchdown in Week 6. He has 51 catches for 736 yards and six touchdowns this season.Cooks, however, ranks third on the Saints in both receptions per game (4.6) and targets per game (6.8) behind rookie Michael Thomas (5.9 receptions, 7.5 targets per game) and third-year pro Willie Snead (5.1 receptions, 6.9 targets).Cooks is tied for 38th in the NFL with a total of 75 targets this season and is tied for 36th with 51 catches.He is under contract through 2017, with the Saints holding an option for 2018.

ESPN reporter Holly Rowe was just out of surgery one day in February to remove a malignant tumor from her chest. Puma Rihanna Creepers Online . She would tweet that surgery went well, but in reality, it was one of the lowest points of my life.She lay on the ground, unsure how she could get past the pain and the nausea. I felt mutilated, Rowe said. I felt broken.Then she saw a tweet from Pittsburgh football coach Pat Narduzzi. It was a short, 10-second video of running back James Conner, who had been diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma last December, running drills with a mask on after one of his chemotherapy treatments.I was shocked, Rowe said. I watched it over and over again. How is this kid doing this?That day, Rowe got up from the floor and walked three miles on the treadmill.Because of James Conner, Rowe said. Because he showed me what strength looks like.Rowe was brought to tears standing alongside fellow cancer survivor Shelley Smith when they introduced Conner, winner of the 2016 Disney Sports Spirit Award on Thursday at The Home Depot College Football Awards.The award, which recognizes college footballs most inspirational figure, and the moment -- from the 680-person standing ovation to the chants of his name -- brought Conner himself to tears when talking to ESPNs Tom Rinaldi. Conner dedicated his entire season -- the 1,060 rushing yards and 20 total touchdowns -- to everyone else who was fighting their own battle.With that cancer, it dont care if youre black or white, Conner said. It comes, and it comes hard. ... Theres people fighting and they dont get this, they dont receive any awards if they win and when they win, and so this is for all of us.Conner, the 2014 ACC Player of the Year, revealed his diagnosis last December. He promised to not fear cancer, not even through the 12 chemotherapy sessions.During his speech, he talked about the other people who impacted him. Like 5-year-old Andrew ONeill, whose wish was to meet him. And Smith, who beat breast cancer last year to return to broadcasting for ESPN. And Rowe.We have a bond that cant be broken, Conner said about Smith and Rowe. Them, we best friends now. To everybody going through this, they got a friend in me. Puma Creepers Wit . PAUL, Minn. Puma Creeper Kopen . -- Adam Snyder returned to the San Francisco 49ers this season because the offensive lineman thought it was his best opportunity to win a championship. . DAmigo scored twice in regulation and added the shootout winner as the Toronto Marlies edged the San Antonio Rampage 5-4 in American Hockey League action. DETROIT -- Darius Slay smiled, ear to ear, and his eyes lit up while he sat on the stool in front of his stall.Detroits standout cornerback cant wait to play on Thanksgiving with a lot at stake for a change.The Lions will have a featured game on the holiday as usual, continuing a tradition that dates to 1934, but it will be very significant to them in the standings unlike many matchups over the past two-plus decades.Detroit (6-4) hosts the Minnesota Vikings (6-4) in a matchup of first-place teams in the NFC North. It will be the first time the Lions are in first place on the holiday since 1993, which is also the most recent year the franchise won a division title.I love it, Slay said. We know the risks, and the stakes.If the Lions beat Minnesota for the second time this month and sweep the season series, they would win the head-to-head tiebreaker if both teams are tied at the end of the regular season.You cant help but think about that, said Detroit receiver Golden Tate, who flipped into the end zone for a game-winning touchdown in overtime at Minnesota in Week 9.The winner of the game will definitely have an advantage in the division and will be in the drivers seat down the stretch.If the Vikings win, they will move into first place with a favorable schedule that includes only one team that currently has a winning record.I dont necessarily think this is necessarily for the division championship, Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer said. Its not like its the last game of the season.Here are some things to watch when Detroit and Minnesota kick off the NFLs holiday tripleheader:DIGGING IT: The Lions limited receiver Stefon Diggs to a season-low 6.15 yards per catch in the previous meeting, but he set a career high with 13 receptions.You let him catch too many and at some point in time hes going to burn you because hes explosive, Lions coach Jim Caldwell said.Thats an area where weve just got to continue to get better. Theres not a point in time where you say, `Hey, well let that guy catch as many balls as hed like.ROLLING ROBERTS: When the Lions signed Andre Roberts in June, a month after Washington cut him, they were hoping he would compete to be their returner and possibly provide depth at receiver.Roberts has surpassed expectations, becoming the first Detroit player to return two punts for a touchdown in a season since 2005. He has also made some clutch catches, incluuding a 27-yard reception that set up Matt Praters game-tying kick as time expired at Minnesota. Puma Creeper Zwart. BERGER THE BULWARK: One bright spot on Minnesotas depleted offensive line has been veteran center Joe Berger, who will make his 36th straight start.The native of Newaygo, Michigan, played at NCAA Division II Michigan Tech and went undrafted before stints with the Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys.Hes a really smart guy, quarterback Sam Bradford said. Hes really helped me with protections. I think thats one of the first things when you learn a new offense as a quarterback. You want to know, `How am I being protected? What are the calls? And hes been awesome.MAKING HISTORY: Detroit, which has trailed in the fourth quarter of every game, is the first NFL team to have the first 10 games decided by seven points or fewer.SPECIAL SPECIALISTS: Detroits Sam Martin and Minnesotas Jeff Locke are two of the top punters in the NFL. Martin leads the league with a net average of 45.8 yards. Locke ranks second in the NFL with 25 punts pinned inside the 20.Last week when Minnesota was clinging to a six-point lead over Arizona late in the fourth quarter, Locke had a 72-yard punt with a friendly roll to push the Cardinals deep into their territory.What Locke has learned to do, perhaps unlike former Minnesota kicker Blair Walsh and some of his struggling peers, is forget about mistakes.In the past, I mightve been sitting on a bad punt and letting it affect the next punts, he said. But now Ive learned especially this year just to clear it.Soon after Walsh missed an extra point and had a field goal blocked in the loss to Detroit, the Vikings released the former All-Pro kicker and signed Kai Forbath to replace him.Forbath and Prater both had an extra point blocked last week. They contributed to the total of 12 extra points missed , the most in one week since the NFL merger in 1970.Prater has been an asset for the Lions. He made a season-long, 58-yard field goal at Minnesota before the Lions won 22-16. He has also made three game-winning field goals this season with 1:29, 1:28 and 4 seconds remaining in games.---For more NFL coverage: and Larry Lage on Twitter at 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 ' ' '

PLAYA VISTA, Calif. . -- L.A. Clippers star Blake Griffin said Friday he feels as good as hes felt in several years heading into the 2016-17 regular season.I felt great -- as good as Ive felt in several years, Griffin said before practice. Its kind of surprising, actually. I felt good going into camp, but you never know how youre going to respond to a lot of live situations and a heavy load. But I felt great.As a result, Griffin says he finally has peace of mind as the Clippers approach their season opener against the Portland Trail Blazers in Portland on Thursday.Playing back-to-backs or having several hard days of practice in a row and then a game and still feeling fine the next day, still being able to get all my work in and do even more -- its reassuring, Griffin said.Last season, the five-time All-Star missed 47 games during the regular season with a tear in his left quadriceps tendon and a broken right hand after an altercation in January with a team equipment manager, which subsequently resulted in Griffin being suspended for four games.Griffins season ended early when he aggravated the left quadriceps injury in Game 4 of the Clippers first-round playoff series against the Trail Blazers.Coach Doc Rivers, who initially feared he would have to limit Griffins minutes to start the season, added that he plans on playing Griffin with no minutes restrictions.Hes been far better [than I anticipated]. Theres no holding back. You dont have to, Rivers said. Just logically thinking going into the year, you thought you may have to. But you dont. That tells you the superb athlete he is, that tells you where his health is, and its all good news for us.Griffin averaged 16.2 points on 55.4 percent shooting to go along with 5.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.2 steals in 23.1 minutes per game during the preseason.To prevent injury, Griffin adjusted his offseason routine to strengthen his lower body, particularly his legs, which he says hes gone away from in recent seasons.Every year I find different things I like and some things I discard, Griffin said. I definitely changed my routine a little bit as far as the work I do before I get out on the court ... just activating everything -- probably a little heavier in the legs. The past few years Ive gotten away from it a little bit, but I got back on it this summer.Rivers says Griffins work ethic is the primary reason he was able to rehab quickly and enter the season with confidence.Hes worked. Blake works so hard, Rivers said. Sometimes you put enough work in that you take away any insecurities you may have with your body because youve tested it in every way possible. He doesnt even think about it. The only time he thinks about it is when [the media] brings it up. Sergio Rico Jersey . But by the time the game started, the Toronto Raptors forward felt even worse. And, for three quarters, it showed as Gay shot a woeful three-for-13 from the field. Nacho Fernandez Jersey . -- Running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings were back at practice for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday despite being hampered by hamstring injuries. . PETERSBURG, Fla. In September 2013, Helena Scutt and Paris Henken were racing one of the fastest -- and newest -- sailboats added to the Rio Olympics. Henken, then 17, was a high school junior and Scutt was a junior at Stanford -- and they were representing the United States at the 49erFX world championships in Marseille, France.On the fourth day of racing, the two athletes were sailing upwind, their bodies fully outstretched over the water. As they approached a turnaround point, a German boat, going the opposite direction, was suddenly heading straight at them.A slew of other boats were packed tightly around them. There was nowhere to escape. Collision was inevitable.But the two boats didnt hit head-on. Instead, the German monohull rammed into Scutts torso at full force.I dont know if they didnt see us or what, said Scutt, who was sailing closest to the bow. They didnt make a move to avoid us because if they did, theyd heel and I wouldnt have been hit where I was.In the end, Scutts left side absorbed the entire impact of the crash. The force also catapulted Henken into the Mediterranean. When race traffic finally dissipated, a motorboat made its way to the sailors. Scutt was pulled in, badly hurt.She didnt want to be touched, but she wanted her gear off, Henken recalled. I lifted up her shirt and her whole side was black and red.Scutt broke two ribs, lacerated a kidney, and fractured a vertebra in her lower back.None of it required surgery, but when Scutt was discharged from the French hospital and reunited with Henken at their apartment in Marseille, Henken was emotionally distraught. As the skipper, Henken was steering.I kept saying, I should have done more. I should have done more, Henken said, and she kept reassuring me that it wasnt my fault, even though, technically, the German boat had the right of way.Scutt also reassured her that the crash wouldnt mark the end of their career together.Im still amazed, Henken said. She was so motivated. She knew right away she wanted to continue. And I was fully on-board, although I definitely wasnt going to force her into it one way or another.Scutt lost about 12 pounds of muscle mass during her recovery from the accident, but her range of motion was fine, and by late January 2014, she was back in the 49erFX.I was scared -- definitely -- of close situations in a fast boat, Scutt said, yet she knew that every day she raced, her boat would be going in the same direction as it had in 2013 and face other boats coming around the buoy the same way that the German boat did. Its inevitable, she said.Nevertheless, two years later, Scutt, now 24, and Henken, now 20, qualified for the Rio Olympics.During a break in their Olympic preparations, the duo discussed how they overcame their trepidations and reestablished their trust -- and the advice theyd give to other athletes whove been in bad accidents.Eliminate guiltScutt could see that Henken was devastated because she had been steering. I kept telling her that it wasnt her fault. No one wants that guilt, she said. Scutt was right.After she reassured me that I wasnt to blame, HHenken said, that was enough for me to get over my emotional fear. Sergio Rico Spain Jersey. Talk to the prosBefore Scutt got back in the boat, she consulted a sports psychologist. He could tell I was passionate, she said. His advice was not to push myself too soon. He said ease into it and look long term.She also got help from her teammate. Reach out to people, Henken advised. Theyre there to help. Im really lucky to have Helena and shes lucky to have me. We were so strong before, and we immediately bonded even more. If an incident happens, make sure you lean on someone else; dont do it alone.Give yourself time for the memory to fadeI think [this] happens to a lot of people who have trauma, Scutt said. The split second I knew that the boat was going to hit but I couldnt do anything about it -- that snapshot kept running through my mind all night for several days. Now I can barely remember it. My mind has protectively shut it off. Its faded to black and white. All those memories -- the whole day, is very vague now.Remind yourself of the risk in everythingSailing is inherently risky and despite her broken bones, Scutt decided, to me, the risk is worth it. I know were all racing really close, but wouldnt be my sport if I was in a slow boat and everyone was far away. Thats not what I do.Put it in contextScutt began to view the crash as a small part of her entire career. When I got hurt, I thought a lot about all the sacrifices Id made to get to that point, she said, and it made me want to push forward and keep going. I thought: This is just one more sacrifice that would make everything more meaningful.Henken added, Nothings going to hold you back but yourself.Be kind to yourself when you go backEven now, Scutt said, I still get nervous, and Paris knows it. Im working on it. When were hanging off the side, I pull up my shoulders and lean into the boat because when [the accident] happened, I was lying fully stretched out. For me to say Im never going to lift my shoulders again isnt realistic, so I wasnt too hard on myself when I knew I was leaning up. Now, every time Im out there, I find myself safely trapezing for a little longer.Or Paris will say, I need your weight [meaning lean back]. At first, I thought, Cmon, youre not the one that got hurt. But thats ridiculous. Or shell remind me, Were fine. I got this -- which is important. If shes cowering in the boat with me, were not going to win medals.

Celtic will not take up their ticket allocation for next month’s possible Champions League at Linfield. Uefa confirmed the first-leg tie in Belfast will take place on Friday 14 July should the Northern Irish champions make it past the San Marino club La Fiorita. Celtic and Linfield face prospect of Champions League clash on marching day Read more The original dates would have taken Celtic to Belfast at the height of the marching season on 11 or 12 July. That sparked fears of trouble among the club’s supporters and Linfield’s loyalist fans. After talks with the Police Service of Northern Ireland, it has been decided to move the match to 14 July, with a 5pm kick-off. But Celtic have decided the potential for disorder is still too big a risk and will not invite their travelling support to attend. Celtic said: “Following security concerns raised by the Police Service of Northern Ireland, Celtic has taken part in discussions with Linfield and the PSNI over recent days. While there can be an option to reverse the fixtures if both clubs agree, during discussions Linfield made it clear that they did not wish to reverse the tie and they wanted to play their home leg first. “In addition, as is often the case in football, Celtic’s football management team wished to play our away leg first so that we could benefit from the advantage of playing the second leg at home in front of our supporters at Celtic Park for this crucial European tie. “Following the discussions, it was agreed among the clubs and PSNI and has now been confirmed with Uefa that, should Linfield progress to the E.J. Gaines Youth Jersey second qualifying round, Celtic’s Uefa Champions League match against Linfield will take place at Windsor Park on Friday, 14 July, with a 5pm kick-off. “No tickets will be available for Celtic supporters. The safety and security of all Celtic supporters travelling and attending matches is of paramount importance to the club. “Should La Fiorita of San Marino qualify for the next round, the first leg match would take place on 11 or 12 July. “Regardless of opposition, Celtic’s home leg of this qualifying round will take place at Celtic Park on Wednesday, 19 JulyAntonio Conte is pushing for Chelsea to secure Leonardo Bonucci or the unsettled Southampton centre-half Virgil van Dijk to boost the title winners’ defensive strength before next season’s return to the Champions League. Securing the arrival of either player would be far from straightforward, despite reports from Italy that Bonucci, whom Conte targeted last summer, could be permitted to leave Juventus. The Italy centre-half would cost in excess of £50m along with a hefty long-term contract and given that he is 30, his signing would represent a shift in Chelsea’s transfer policy if the board sanctioned a move. John Terry weighs up Aston Villa move as he waits on Premier League interest Read more The Premier League club offer only one-year contract extensions to players in their 30s – a long-established policy that was not bent even for stalwarts of the calibre of Frank Lampard and John Terry – and would need to be persuaded in the logic of spending a club record fee on a player who entered his fourth decade early last month. Van Dijk, at 25, would represent a signing more in keeping with Chelsea’s strategy but Southampton’s intransigence in dealing with Liverpool over the Holland defender suggests the London club’s negotiating skills may be severely tested. The Merseyside club apologised to Southampton this month “for any misunderstanding” regarding their interest in the player and the Premier League is awaiting observations from St Mary’s and Anfield before determining whether it should open a tapping-up investigation into Liverpool’s conduct. Southampton, who are expected to appoint the former Alavés manager Mauricio Pellegrino as Claude Puel’s successor, are intent on resisting interest in Van Dijk, although the player may yet agitate to leave. Chelsea’s interest in the centre-back is long established and there had been a level of surprise at Stamford Bridge when he apparently made so clear his priority was to move to Liverpool. Yet they are unlikely to offer more than £50m for a player with only 12 caps, albeit Van Dijk’s compatriot Nathan Aké could potentially be part of any move. Chelsea are hopeful of securing Alex Sandro from Juventus, with the Italian club confirming they have received a substantial offer for the Brazilian wing-back from an unspecified club. Tiemoué Bakayoko should join from Claude Giroux Youth Jersey Monaco in a deal worth up to £40m and interest is retained in the Everton forward Romelu Lukaku, who could cost a world record fee

In an interview with Air Jordans 2017 earlier this month, DJ Khaled revealed that Don C's "Arctic Orange" (or "Pink") Air Jordan 2 collaboration would be available exclusively in kids' sizing. Seemingly confirming that bit of information, Just Don officially announced the release date for the shoes, along with an explanation for why the older crowd will have to sit this one out.Typically, Air Jordans resell for considerably more than they retailed for, but how much more? Some may not be as much as you'd expect, and you don't want to get ripped off. And if the price seems too good to be true, it just might be. While it's not a foolproof method, knowing the average value that a sneaker is selling for is one of the best ways of weeding out fakes.The Air Jordan 2 was originally released in 1987 and was designed by Bruce Kilgore. They were made in Italy, and featured real Italian leather on the upper. The Air Jordan "Wings" logo is prominently.
The Cheap Air Jordan Shoes in UNC Tar Heels colors seen here is a direct reference to an early player exclusive pair worn by Michael Jordan himself. Per Todd Krevanchi's Brannock blog, Jordan donned a similar sneaker for a June 28, 1987, Collegiate Legends Classic game—hence the date on the back.Tastemakers and Jordan Brand employees have previewed the Air Jordan 2 Deconstructed, a stripped down, suede-based take on the model. As of now, the shoe has surfaced in spring-ready Bordeaux, Mint Foam and Mineral Gold colorways, each monochrome with no varying details.Sneakerheads are forced to the resale market for a number of reasons, and when it's time to take that plunge, knowledge is power.Below you will find a list of the current average resale price of select Air Jordan 2 releases provided by StockX. A fashion-forward design when it was originally introduced in 1986, the Air Jordan 2 returns with a modern lifestyle update this spring.Retailers like Oneness are planning to release this colorway .
2017 Jordans For Sale will liven up your summer rotation next week, when the Air Jordan 2 Retro Deconstructed makes its retail debut.A slew of bold, vibrant colorways are in the works, beginning with this "Mint Foam" make-up. The single-color design is void of traditional leather construction, instead featuring a stripped down suede upper with tonal branding hits and design elements.Earlier today, Don C announced a few special details for his LA-based Jordan pop-up shop. Not only will the new "Arctic Orange" Air Jordan 2 be available in sizes 4c through 8Y, but there will also be matching apparel, a restock of the previous two Don C x Air Jordan 2 colorways and a chance to win the "Arctic Orange" pair in men's sizing.However, a closer look at the wording of Don's Instagram post reveals another interesting tidbit. When mentioning the giveaway in men's sizes, he added, "before their release." So, it appears at some point in the future, the highly coveted colorway will be available for the fellas. Keep it locked for more information and a confirmed release date.
