South Africa finisher Farhaan Behardien did the same job for his franchise, his 33-ball 65 leading Titans to their fourth successive victory in the T20 Challenge, beating Dolphins by 58 runs. Youth Browns Jerseys . After Behardiens seventh T20 fifty carried Titans to 185 for 4, seamer Junior Dala and legspinner Shaun von Berg threw the chase off the track with three-wicket hauls.Having been sent in, Titans sprinted to 42 for 0 in the Powerplay. Three overs later Imran Tahir provided Dolphins the breakthrough by pinning Grant Mokoena lbw for 25. Cameron Delport and Kyle Nipper then struck in successive overs to send back Jonathan Vandiar and Heinrich Klaasen, bringing Titans to 89 for 3 in 12 overs.Enter Behardien. He added 93 in 46 balls with Heino Kuhn to pull his team ahead. Kuhn was eventually run-out for 32 off 17 balls in the last over of the innings, but by then Titans had passed 180. Behardien stayed unbeaten with one four and four sixes.Chasing 186, Dolphins lost Delport early to Dala, but Morne van Wyk and Kevin Pietersen, who was playing his first T20 since picking up a calf injury in the IPL in April this year, gave Dolphins hope with a 44-run stand.But from the moment van Wyk fell for 41, Dolphins lost six wickets for 13 runs, with von Berg cutting through the middle order. Dala then returned to take care of the tail as Dolphins were restricted to 127 for 8. Pietersen scored 24 as only four Dolphins batsmen reached double figures and suffered their second loss in three matches.Christiaan Jonkers rapid 48 off 27 balls and three top-order wickets from Basheeru-Deen Walters set up Warriors 42-run win against Knights in Bloemfontein. A strong opening stand and Jonkers unbeaten knock led Warriors to 157 for 5 before Knights were bowled out for 115. Warriors are now placed second with two wins from three matches.Warriors openers JJ Smuts and Somila Seyibokwe capitalised on their decision to bat by putting up 47 runs in 5.5 overs. Seyibokwe fell for a 21-ball 29 before Smuts 38 off 29 led them almost to the halfway mark but Warriors soon lost three quick wickets. Jonker, coming in at No. 5, then blasted four fours and two sixes to help Warriors score 51 off the last 35 balls.Defending 157, Walters gave Warriors an ideal start by removing the top three Knights batsmen for single-digit scores. Reeling at 23 for 3 in the fifth over, Knights saw some resistance from Rudi Second, Diego Rosier and Patrick Botha but Smuts left-arm spin accounted for two of them and Knights never recovered from there. Only one other batsman - Marchant de Lange - scored in double digits before Knights were bowled out in 18.2 overs. Walters finished with 3 for 16 while Smuts, Sisanda Magala and Andrew Birch took two each. Mangaliso Mosehles fifth T20 fifty helped Lions achieve a three-run Duckworth-Lewis win in a rain-hit match against Cape Cobras in Potchefstroom. Batting first, Lions reached 165 for 5 in 19.1 overs, thanks to wicketkeeper Mosehles 40-ball 58 and an unbeaten 20-ball 35 from Nicky van den Bergh from No. 6. Then came a rain interruption, which left Cape Cobras chasing a revised target of 70 in six overs.Richard Levi set the tone for the chase, hitting the first two balls for four and six before Hardus Viljoen bowled him off the fourth ball. With Wayne Parnell and Kieron Pollard continuing to find the boundary regularly, they reached 41 for 1 before Pollard holed out for 26 off 12 balls. Then a Parnell six off Eddie Leie left Cobras needing 21 off the last two overs.Aaron Phangiso sent down a tight fifth over, conceding five singles and a leg-bye, leaving 15 to get off the last over, bowled by Willem Mulder. Parnell hit another six to narrow the equation, and it came down to four runs required off the last ball before Willem Mulder sealed the match by bowling George Linde. Pink Browns Jerseys .5 seconds to play in the game, Kevin Love never stopped believing that they would come out of there with a win. Orange Browns Jerseys. -- Matt Rupert scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the London Knights extended their win streak to nine games by defeating the Owen Sound Attack 4-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. . Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract as a free agent with Cleveland in March, reported symptoms on Monday morning, a team spokesman said. NEW YORK -- The Toronto Blue Jays streaky offense is one of those funks.However, it has yet to cost Toronto a share of first place in the American League East, but on Monday at Yankee Stadium, it made the division race slightly closer.The Blue Jays look to reverse things at the plate Tuesday night when they continue a three-game series with the New York Yankees.Toronto has split its past 16 games, but on the smaller scale, the Blue Jays have dropped three of four. The offense has scored 16 times in the past four games but has produced one home run, six extra-base hits and a .222 batting average.These guys are what they are, whether you like it or not, Toronto manager John Gibbons said Monday before his teams 5-3 loss to the Yankees. Sometimes youve just got to ride it out and take the good with the bad, because eventually that will change.Jose Bautista hit an RBI single Monday, and Edwin Encarnacion had a two-run single. Bautista has three hits in last 17 at-bats, while Encarnacion had three hits in his previous 24 at-bats before going 3-for-4 on Monday. Josh Donaldson has three hits in his past 13 at-bats.Two players who are not slumping, Russell Martin and Troy Tulowitzki, figure to be back in the lineup Tuesday. Martin did not start since knuckleballer R.A. Dickey pitched, while Tulowitzki sat because Gibbons said he needed a day off.We understand this game, we have a lot of time in this game, we have to keep going and dont worry about what is in the past, Encarnacion said. Weve got to focus on tomorrows game and the next three weeks.Coincidentally, a similar situation preceded Toronto scoring 19 times during a three-game series in its last visit to New York, Aug. 15-17. The Blue Jays offense was shut out in the opener, then produced an eight-run inning en route to a 12-6 win in the second game. Toronto posted a 7-4 victory in the series finale.Since that series, the Blue Jays have always held at least a share of first place, but the fourth-place Yankees are currently only 5 1/2 games back. The Boston Red Sox are a game out, while the Baltimore Orioles are two back.The Yankees are 3 1/2 games behind Baltimore and Detroit in a six-team race for the second wild-card spot. They have won seven of their past nine series, but winning two of three each time still might not be good enough.IIts almost imperative, New York left fielder Brett Gardner said. Throwback Browns Jerseys. At this point, we have to win every series the rest of the way. Weve got to play well, and two out of three is the worst-case scenario for us.New York won for the eighth time in 12 games Sunday. Jacoby Ellsbury homered and drove in three runs in a game that featured contributions from a few young players.Rookie first baseman Tyler Austin had a two-run double that wound up being the decisive hit, while first-year catcher Gary Sanchez reached base for the 20th straight game and also threw out Melvin Upton Jr. trying to steal second.Aaron Judge made two good defensive plays in right field but struck out three times. Although he homered in his first two games Aug. 13-14, he has not done much since and has 35 strikeouts to go along with a .169 average.Even with the low numbers, Judge likely will remain in right field due to an injury to Aaron Hicks.We got to help him fight through it, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said of Judges slump. We know he has the ability, and we believe he can do it.Aaron Sanchez (13-2, 2.88 ERA) will make his second start following a 10-day break in the minors. Sanchez is second on Torontos pitching staff in wins, and his ERA is the lowest among Blue Jays starters.Sanchez had a 5.29 ERA in three starts before the layoff but returned Wednesday in Baltimore and allowed an unearned run and five hits in six innings.Sanchez was sharp in the 12 2/3 innings he pitched against the Yankees this season. He allowed an earned run and three hits in six innings during a no-decision April 12 in Toronto, and June 1 at Rogers Centre, he struck out six and allowed seven hits in 6 2/3 innings during a 7-0 victory.Luis Cessa (4-0, 4.17 ERA) makes his fourth start since entering New Yorks rotation. As a starting pitcher, Cessa is 2-0 with a 3.00 ERA.Cessa has pitched six innings in each start, although he has allowed four of his nine home runs as a starting pitcher. The right-hander allowed two homers Wednesday in Kansas City but did not get a decision when New York rallied from a four-run deficit.In his lone career appearance against Toronto, he pitched a scoreless inning on May 24. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

The career of Oklahoma starting linebacker Tay Evans is over because of concussions, coach Bob Stoops announced Monday. Youth Titans Jerseys .We want the best for him moving forward in his life, first and foremost, Stoops said.Evans, a redshirt sophomore, started the Sooners first three games, tying a career high with five tackles in Week 3 against Ohio State. But Evans sat out the game Saturday against TCU.Stoops said Evans will remain on medical scholarship, and he will have the opportunity to be a student-coach for the Sooners.With Evans done, junior college transfer Emmanuel Beal, who started against TCU, figures to see a bigger role going forward.The Sooners face rival Texas in Dallas this weekend. Elite Titans Jerseys . - Chris Tierney snapped a tie with a power-play goal late in the third period as the London Knights rallied from a 3-0 deficit to beat the Erie Otters 5-3 in Ontario Hockey League action on Wednesday. Womens Titans Jerseys . 24 Baylor in a Big 12 clash between teams trending in opposite directions. Andrew Wiggins made 10-of-12 from the foul line and scored 17 for Kansas (14-4, 5-0 Big 12), which capped a stretch of four straight games against ranked opponents unscathed. . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. MINNEAPOLIS -- Candace Parker and the Sparks jumped with joy on the court, joined in celebration by a guy named Magic Johnson who once made basketball championships a habit in Los Angeles.Parkers old college coach, the late Pat Summitt, was there in spirit, too.Nneka Ogwumikes short jumper with 3.1 seconds left, off the rebound of her blocked shot, gave the Sparks a 77-76 victory over the defending champion Minnesota Lynx in the deciding Game 5 of the WNBA Finals on Thursday night for the franchises first title in 14 years.Parker had 28 points and 12 rebounds to earn MVP honors of the Finals and her first WNBA title, capping a trying year marked by the death of the beloved Summitt, with whom she won two NCAA championships at Tennessee. Parker also was left off the U.S. Olympic team after helping them to a gold medal in the previous two Games.The journey to get here, I wouldnt have wanted to do it with anybody else, Parker said. Its amazing, when you surround yourself with good people, how fun it is.Sparks coach Brian Agler started his postgame news conference by playing a recording of the Tennessee fight song, Rocky Top, from a phone in front of him at the podium. Parker cried as she leaned over to hug her coach.Ive never been around somebody that has been critiqued so hard, Agler said, and Ive never been around anyone Im happy for than Candace.Said Ogwumike: Shes been through so much. Shes probably the most misunderstood person in the league. I told her I wanted her to get one.Parker said she heard Summitts voice in her head, recalling the time-worn advice to focus on defense and rebounding.You cant control if shots go in or shots dont, but what you can control is defense and rebounding, Parker said.Rebekkah Brunson made one of two free throws with 23.4 seconds left to give the Lynx a 74-73 lead. Parker answered with a layup on the other end that Maya Moore countered with a jumper. Then Ogwumike hustled her way over to the loose ball after Sylvia Fowles blocked her first attempt. She coolly swished it.Lindsay Whalens heave from just inside halfcourt bounced high off the backboard, setting off the celebration for the Sparks and silencing the sellout crowd of 19,423.Moore had 23 points and 11 assists for the Lynx, who fell short of matching the WNBA record of four championships. The Houston Comets won four straight titles from 1997-2000. The Lynx played in the finals for the fifth time in the last six years. They won three.The team that won this game deserved to win the game, Moore said, so its just hard to have it come that close.Chelsea Gray reeled off 11 consecutive points for the Sparks, capping that ruun with a smooth up-and-under layup to put them in front 60-59 early in the fourth quarter. Cheap Titans Jerseys. Parkers putback with 3:06 left gave L.A. a 71-63 lead.But Moore seized the moment with a 3-pointer that brought Minnesota within four points, and Parker forced an off-balance 3 on the other end. Whalen stole the ball from Kristi Toliver and finished the fast break with a layup to tie the game at 71, setting up the final flurry.On the next play, Ogwumike hit a jumper that appeared to come after the shot clock expired. The officials signaled for a review but never looked at the basket. Los Angeles led 73-71 with just over a minute left. Seimone Augustus answered with a jumper, but those points proved to be critical.Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve, making sure to credit the Sparks for their performance, was livid about the non-call afterward.Its not enough just to apologize and send out a memo that they got something wrong, OK? These players are so invested, and something must be done about the officiating in this league. Because it is not fair to these great players that we have, Reeve said.The WNBAs new postseason seeding format based on overall record regardless of conference worked well, leading to this classic matchup between the two teams that fought all summer for the top seed and featuring several of the leagues biggest stars.I hope that we gained a lot of fans from around the world and around this country, Augustus said.The game was remarkably close, with 24 lead changes, 11 ties and no team ever leading by double digits.CHAMPIONSHIP ATMOSPHEREThe sea of green T-shirts donned by almost everyone in the crowd produced a deafening soundtrack from start to finish, befitting a game for the WNBA trophy.Johnson, a part-owner of the Sparks, wore all black while sitting courtside to root for his team. The Hall of Famer gave the players a pep talk after their loss at home in Game 4 on Sunday. His presence was all the more impressive considering the Dodgers, the other pro club hes invested in, also played Thursday night in Los Angeles in Game 5 of their National League championship series.They had to believe they could do it on a tough home court. This team Minnesota is tremendous, Johnson said. We just beat the champions, so I give them a lot of credit, too.WOLF TRACKSThe Lynx had celebrity backing, too. Timberwolves players at the game included Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins, Ricky Rubio, Cole Aldrich and Nemanja Belica.---This story has corrected spelling to Fowles in 11th paragraph. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

LOS ANGELES -- The?Los Angeles Dodgers hopes of having Clayton Kershaw for the stretch drive were buoyed Sunday when the staff ace played catch at Dodger Stadium. Hungary World Cup Jerseys .It was the first time Kershaw participated in a baseball-related activity, outside of rehab for his lower back injury, since pitching in a simulated game on July 16 against minor league hitters. Kershaw came away from that outing with continued back discomfort that originally surfaced June 26 following a start at Pittsburgh.Its significant that he played catch, manager Dave Roberts said. Were all excited about it. And when Clayton is ready hell be back. But the guys that are active, were focused on the guys we have active. And when Clayton comes back, were going to be that much better for it.While no target date was given for a potential Kershaw return, it did not sound like the left-hander would be back until around mid-September at the earliest. Roberts mentioned that instead of minor league rehab starts, Kershaw would throw in bullpens and live batting practice sessions to get back into game shape.That preparation route would be needed because Triple-A Oklahoma City, Double-A Tulsa and Single-A Rancho Cucamonga all end their regular seasons on Sept. 5.Kershaw threw from about 60 to 65 feet in the outfield in left. He worked mostly out of the stretch at a deliberate pitch and was throwing about 70 percent of full velocity.[The next step] will be just a little further out, Roberts said. Just continue to get his intensity up and stretch him out a little more. Like Ive said all along, Clayton is not a guy we worry about in regard to the intensity, the intent to get back. Hell be back as soon as he possibly can.Kershaw is 11-2 with a 1.79 ERA in 16 starts this season. He has 145 strikeouts, a number that still leads the Dodgers, even though he hasnt pitched in five weeks. He has just nine walks in 121 innings.Even after the original injury, the setback and the dwindling timetable, Roberts has never lost hope that Kershaw would pitch again this season.Yeah, you know what, I think all along we have expected, and a little is being hopeful, but we expect him to make starts for us in September, Roberts said. Cheap Football Hungary Jerseys . -- Jakob Silfverberg is making himself right at home with the Anaheim Ducks, scoring four goals in his first four games. Womens Hungary Jerseys .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. . Andreas Johnson had a goal and two assists while Jacob de la Rose also scored for Sweden (2-0-0). Esa Lindell and Rasmus Ristolainen replied for Finland (1-1-0) Lindell opened the scoring for Finland just 41 seconds into the game, but the hosts quickly regained their composure and tied the score less than four minutes later on Wennbergs first of the game. SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Ty Lawson is trying to rebuild his image, along with his NBA career.Following a tumultuous year in which he was arrested twice for DUI and entered alcohol rehab, lost his starting job with the Houston Rockets, and spent the final 13 games of the season mostly coming off the bench with the?Indiana Pacers, the veteran point guard is in Sacramento on a one-year, prove-it contract.And thats just what the 28-year-old former first-round draft pick intends to do -- on and off the court.Sometimes, an experience, you have to grow from it, Lawson said Monday at the?Kings media day. I think Ive grown a lot and Im just ready to move forward. I heard a GM said, I think he lost a step. He cant shoot anymore. Ive got a lot to prove and I got a chip on my shoulder to prove it.Lawson joins a crowded depth chart at point guard that includes holdover Darren Collison along with newcomers Garrett Temple and Jordan Farmar.With Collison facing a likely NBA suspension following his conviction on a misdemeanor domestic abuse charge stemming from an incident in May, Lawson is projected as the season-opening starter.Coach Dave Joerger, who takes over the Kings after spending the previous three seasons in Memphis, made it clear he has high expectations for Lawson.Im counting on Ty to be a pro, Joerger said. Its an important year for him. I have a lot of confidence in him. Im looking forward to him playing well and being a leader for our team.Lawson actually signed with Sacramento following a pep talk with an unlikely Kings supporter -- former coach George Karl, who had previously coached Lawson when the two were in Denver. Lawson spent his first six seasons with the Nuggets, four of them with Karl as his coach.Karl coached the Kings for the final 30 games in 2014 and all of 2015 before being fired in the offseason. Although the situation in Sacramento ended messily for Karl, he gave the franchise a ringing endorsement to Lawson.I talked to him three or four times before I made the decision to come heere, just about the organization, how everything is, was it really as bad as what everybody was saying, Lawson said. Wholesale Hungary Jerseys. He had good things to say. Thats what made me ultimately choose Sacramento over New Orleans.While with the Nuggets, Lawson was a budding star while averaging more than 14 points and six assists during his time there. His off-court issues, however, led to a parting he neither wanted nor expected.Lawson was traded to the Rockets following his second DUI arrest in a six-month period. Lawson also had two previous DUI arrests.After initially starting for Houston, Lawson went to the bench after coach Kevin McHale was fired early in the season and eventually had his contract bought out.That led to a short stint in Indiana, where Lawson played 13 games with one start, tinkered with his shot and ultimately lost faith in his own abilities.I feel like that whole year I wasnt even really sure who I was, Lawson said. Last year my confidence was gone. I started second-guessing myself. I actually went back to my 2013 playoffs [tapes] when I was playing the Warriors and I was like, Did I actually do this? I had to get myself back to the right mindset.It wasnt an easy thing to do, not with fans and media scrutinizing his every move following the two DUI arrests.Lawson understands why he got the looks and why people were so quick to offer their opinions on his situations.He also says the public perception of him is wrong.The person that Im portrayed out there, I dont think people know who I really am, Lawson said. Its kind of tough, going through that day by day. In the microscope, anything I do, people are like, `Aw man look at him, looking to the side, giving you the side-eye. So Ive definitely changed as a person.Im just a fun-loving guy that loves to play basketball. I just got in trouble a couple times, but that doesnt change what Ive done or who I am. 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 ' ' '

Baseball is considered one of the most superstitious sports, and heading into Game 7 of the World Series, you bet all fans, players and coaches arent taking any risks by switching up their routines. Cheap Tigers Jerseys . Whether its parking your car in the same spot for a week, not washing your lucky jersey or that special handshake you have to do every time your favorite player walks to the plate, weve all done it.?Especially for the said cursed Chicago Cubs, now isnt the time to take chances. As such, it should come as no surprise that one of those sticking to routine is Cubs manager Joe Maddon.?Ahead of Game 6, Maddon told reporters?that he has a special memento he carries in his bag everywhere he goes: his fathers Los Angeles Angels hat.When asked if he noticed any omens before the game, he said, Omens, I dont know. I did see my dads hat in my bag today. I carry my dads hat with me.He passed away in 2002, we won the World Series, and Ive had his old Angel hat in my bag since then. So it goes everywhere. So the one thing Im relying on today is my dad. I held onto his hat a little bit this morning, and thats probably the omen, in a sense, going into this game.Call it an omen, call it a superstition, but no matter what you call it, you cant deny its something that works for Maddon, considering it was there when the Angels won the World Series in 2002 while he was bench coach for the team. Not to mention, it was there for the Cubs Game 6 win over the Cleveland Indians?on Tuesday.At a time like this, for Maddon, that hat better be within arms reach.-- Courtney Schellin Wholesale Tigers Jerseys .

Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn. Youth Lions Jerseys .ca! Kerry, what did you think of the hit that Raffi Torres laid out on Jarret Stoll on Tuesday night? I mean, he popped Stoll hard on that hit, but I cant tell if Torres just got his shoulder or in the head. Torres got two for charging, but could there be more from the league? Max Martin, Toronto Max: I must first acknowledge that Raffi Torres has done an excellent job this season in transforming his game in an effort to play within the rules; not unlike the way Matt Cooke did following his lengthy suspension. On this play however, it is my opinion that the angle of approach that Raffi Torres took ahead/to the front of Jarret Stolls center body mass in setting up to make the hit resulted in an illegal check to the head. Raffi Torres was closing in on Jarret Stoll in anticipation of making an open-ice hit but in doing so, Torres makes Stolls head the principle point of contact causing injury. While the circumstance surrounding every play is unique there can be common threads and similarities that exist for the purpose of determining suspensions. As I viewed this play I noticed distinct similarities from the criteria Brendan Shanahan used in his explanation to suspend Eric Gryba for two games.  I provide quotes from that decision while inserting player name changes to appropriately reflect this current incident. "As the illegal check to head penalty (rule 48) states: A hit resulting in contact with an opponents head where the head is targeted and the principal point of contact is not permitted. "There appears to be no malicious intent by Torres on the play. Stoll is eligible to be checked on the play and Torres does not extend an elbow or launch into the head of Stoll. However, Torres route is not correct and he does not make enough of a full body check for this hit not to qualify as an illegal check to the head. In attempting this check Torres does not hit squarely enough through the body. Stolls head is the principle point of contact and the subsequent contact to Stolls right shoulder is secondary. "It is important to note that while receiving a pass or carrying a puck anywhere on the ice a hockey player bears some responsibility to be aware of an impending check, however since the inception of the current illegal check to the head penalty, no player should expect that his head will be made the principle point of contact whether intentionally or as it appears on this play, recklessly... "Taking into account the significant contact to the head as well as the fact that Torres does not hit Stoll through the body he does not succeed with his attempt to make a legal check."  - In summary, in my opinion this was an illegal check to the head.   - Jarrett Stoll was ultimately injured as a result of this hit (Did not return for 3rd period).  - Raffi Torres has been suspended during his career. Aside from the seriousness of the injury that Lars Eller sustained and Jarrett Stoll fortunately did not, the common threads used to describe the play and the decision rendered were just too obvious and eloquently stated by Brendan Shanahan for me to ignore. Elite Lions Jerseys .

Lana and Rusev were seething after the latter lost to John Cena Bryans final WrestleManiaWrestleMania 30 was the defining moment of Daniel Bryans career, The Submission Specialist overcoming Triple H in a singles encounter to advance to that evenings WWE World Heavyweight Title bout and then defeating Randy Orton and Batista in a Triple Threat to land the belt.A year later, Bryan struck gold again, besting Dolph Ziggler, Stardust, R-Truth, Dean Ambrose, Luke Harper and Bad News Barrett in a high-octane Ladder Match to procure the Intercontinental Championship.Bryans growing injury struggles forced him to vacate the garland a few weeks later and, having failed to sufficiently to recover a series of concussions, the fan favourite announced his retirement in early 2015. Disappointing - but hell always have those Mania memories.Ronda gets Rowdy in CaliforniaUFC star Ronda Rousey has always been a huge WWE fan, even taking her nickname from the late, great Rowdy Roddy Piper, and left Stephanie McMahon in no doubt that she would thrive inside the WWE squared circle 12 months ago.Rousey was watching WrestleMania 31 in the front row but became involved in the action when an argument between The Rock and Triple, who had been bragging about his victory over Sting earlier in the night, led to The Games wife, Stephanie, slapping The Peoples Champion.The Rock insisted he would never strike a woman but that Rousey would have no trouble doing so, with the then UFC Bantamweight Champion throwing not only McMahon from the ring but also Triple H!

BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil -- A new era opens for the U. Cheap Rangers Jerseys China .S. womens soccer team at the Olympic Games when a generation of younger players seeks to continue the global domination established at last years World Cup.Bidding to add Olympic gold to World Cup success, the U.S. will have 11 Olympic newcomers on its roster when it opens against New Zealand on Wednesday at the Mineirao Stadium.It will be the teams first major competition since the retirement of players such as Abby Wambach and Lauren Holiday following lats years triumph in Canada.Of course we had some gigantic losses, some players that have been around the game for quite some time, and they are irreplaceable, really, veteran goalkeeper Hope Solo said. But we have something different and I dont think anybody has seen the U.S. team as we are right now. Nobody knows what to expect, with our younger players, with our new talent, with our formation. So I think its going to be exciting.Seeking a fourth straight Olympic gold, the Americans are also without Christine Rampone because of injury, while Sydney Leroux and Amy Rodriguez are pregnant. Two other key players, captain Carli Lloyd and midfielder Megan Rapinoe are coming to Brazil recovering from health problems. Rapinoe is not expected to play in the early games.Theres been a little bit of a change in the roster, but its good, Lloyd said. I think we have about 11 players who are competing in their first Olympics, which is a huge turnaround, but I also think that those players bring experience, theyve been around this team, theyve earned quite a few a caps with the team and are doing very well. So I think that, mixed in with us old folks, we will be all right.Among the Olympic newcomers are a few players who also made it to the World Cup last year, including Meghan Klingenberg, Ali Krieger, Morgan Brian and Whitney Engen. The youngest player in the current roster is 18-year-old Mallory Pugh. The U.S. is trying to become the first team to win the Olympics after succeeding at the World Cup.Lloyd, the teams captain in Rio, said the U.S. remains favored to win the title despite the revamped team.I think the toughest (opponents) are going to be ourselves, said Lloyd, who scored a hat trick in the World Cup final against Japan. No other team should intimidate our team. Of course, there are going to be tough contenders, but honestly, not a single team intimidates me.The U.S. is trying to win its fifth gold medal since womens soccer became an Olympic sport in 1996. It won its third World Cup title in Canada, the first since 1999.I think we are always feeling the pressure of coming back with gold. Its just in our DNA, Lloyd said. Even if we hadnt won the World Cup wed still be under tremendous pressure to win. It comes with being the No. 1 team in the world and going for a fourth consecutive gold medal. We are super excited to get started. I know this team has a lot of talent and depth and we have the opportunity to really create history.After playing New Zealand, the U.S. faces powerhouse France and then Colombia in Group G of the 12-team Olympic tournament. Second-ranked Germany, fifth-ranked Australia, sixth-ranked Sweden and host Brazil loom as potential quarterfinal opponents.We as a team acknowledge the pressure, Solo said. We know that the target is on our backs. We are ranked No. 1 for quite some time, we won last years World Cup, we won the last Olympics. It doesnt make it easy. We dont come into any tournament with an extreme amount of confidence or arrogance. We know that the job is going to be extremely difficult to repeat winning a gold medal.---Tales Azzoni on Twitter: His work can be found at Cheap Rangers Jerseys . The Cincinnati Reds remain perfect with their speedy rookie outfielder in the starting lineup. Wholesale Rangers Jerseys .Y. - Free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, fresh off winning the World Series with Boston, reached agreement with the rival New York Yankees on a seven-year contract worth about $153 million, a person familiar with the negotiations said Tuesday night. . Luis Suarezs double powered Liverpool to a 4-0 victory over Fulham, and Southampton easily overcame Hull 4-1 to continue the south coast clubs impressive start to the season. Liverpool and Southampton sent Chelsea down to fourth place as the west London club was held to 2-2 at home. Its hard to believe it has been 232 days since Alabama defeated Clemson 45-40 in the College Football Playoff National Championship presented by AT&T on Jan. 11.Weve waited 33 weeks for the Crimson Tide and Tigers -- and everyone else -- to take the field again, and Kickoff Week for the 2016 season is finally here.Never before has college football offered so many delightful appetizers to what figures to be a drama-filled, 14-week race for the four spots in the College Football Playoff. No. 9 Tennessee and No. 19 Louisville play in games on Thursday night, and No. 8 Stanford, No. 12 Michigan State?and No. 23 Baylor?play on Friday night.Then it really gets serious on Saturday, when No. 3 Oklahoma?plays No. 15 Houston?(noon ET, ABC), No. 5 LSU?plays Wisconsin?at Lambeau Field! (3:30 ?p.m. ET, ABC)?Texas A&M?hosts No. 16 UCLA?(3:30 p.m. ET, CBS), No. 18 Georgia?plays No. 22 North Carolina?in Atlanta (5:30 p.m. ET, ESPN), No. 1 Alabama plays No. 20?USC?in Arlington, Texas (8 p.m. ET, ABC), and Auburn?hosts No. 2 Clemson (9 p.m. ET, ESPN).On Sunday night, No. 10 Notre Dame?plays at Texas?(7:30 p.m. ET, ABC), and then No. 4 Florida State?and No. 11 Ole Miss?square off in Orlando on Labor Day night (8 p.m. ET, ESPN).Regardless of the outcomes, remember: Its only the first game!With the college football season kicking off in two days, here are my predictions for how the Power Five Conferences will stack up this season:ACCChampion: ClemsonOffensive player of the year: Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson Defensive player of the year: Derwin James, S, Florida State Coach of the year: Dabo Swinney, Clemson Freshman of the year: Deondre Francois, QB, Florida State Comeback player of the year: James Conner, RB, Pittsburgh Coach on the hot seat: Steve Addazio, Boston College Coordinator on the rise: Tony Elliott, offensive coordinator, Clemson Team most likely to rise: Pittsburgh Team most likely to fall: Duke Nonconference game of the year: Clemson at Auburn, Sept. 3 Conference game of the year: Clemson at Florida State, Oct. 29 Biggest potential upset: Louisville over Florida State, Sept. 17Three bold predictions for the ACC1. Pitt running back James Conner will run for 1,500 yards: There wont be a better story in college football this season than Conner, who beat Hodgkins lymphoma after being diagnosed last winter. If that wasnt enough, hes coming back from a knee injury that caused him to miss nearly all of the 2015 season.2. Two ACC teams will make the College Football Playoff: The winner of the Clemson-FSU game in Tallahassee, Florida, will have the inside track at winning the ACC and earning a spot in the playoff. But the loser wont be entirely out of the CFP race and might grab one of the four spots, especially if teams from the Big Ten, Pac-12 or SEC devour each other during conference play.3. Wake Forest will go bowling: After back-to-back 3-9 seasons, coach Dave Clawson finally has depth in the trenches and the right guys at quarterback to run his offense. If Wake Forest can go at least 3-1 in nonconference play (home games against Tulane, FCS foe Delaware and Army and a road game at Indiana), it will have a chance to finish 6-6 and play in its first bowl since 2011.Big 12Champion: OklahomaOffensive player of the year: Patrick Mahomes, QB, Texas Tech Defensive player of the year: Malik Jefferson, LB, Texas Coach of the year: Bob Stoops, Oklahoma Freshman of the year: Shane Buechele, QB, Texas Comeback player of the year: Kenny Hill, QB, TCU Coach on the hot seat: Charlie Strong, Texas Coordinator on the rise: Lincoln Riley, offensive coordinator, Oklahoma Team most likely to rise: Texas Tech Team most likely to fall: Baylor Nonconference game of the year: Ohio State at Oklahoma, Sept. 17 Conference game of the year: Oklahoma at TCU, Oct. 1 Biggest potential upset: Texas over Notre Dame, Sept. 4Three bold predictions for the Big 121. The Big 12 will expand to 12 teams: Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby interviewed representatives of 20 -- 20! -- schools earlier this month about possibly joining his league. By mid-October, the Big 12 will indeed add two more schools for next season -- Cincinnati and Houston.2. Texas will start 3-0: Slow starts doomed the Longhorns in coach Charlie Strongs first two seasons. In 2014, the Longhorns started 2-4 and finished 6-7. Last season, UT started 1-4 and finished 5-7. This year, UT is going to start 3-0 with home victories over Notre Dame and UTEP and a road win at rebuilding Cal. Then theyll return to Earth with back-to-back losses to Oklahoma State and Oklahoma.3. Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes will throw 50 touchdowns: The Red Raiders have had plenty of strong-armed quarterbacks come through their quarterback-friendly system. But Mahomes might be the best one yet. Hell throw for more than 5,500 yards with 50 touchdowns to lead Tech to a winning record in Big 12 play for the first time since 2009.Big TenChampion: MichiganOffensive player of the year: J.T. Barrett, QB, Ohio State Defensive player of the year:?Malik McDowell, DE, Michigan State Coach of the year: Jim Harbaugh, Michigan Freshman of the year: Rashan Gary, DT, Michigan Comeback player of the year: Corey Clement, RB, Wisconsin Coach on the hot seat: Darrell Hazell, Purdue Coordinator on the rise: Tim Drevno, offensive coordinator, Michigan Team most likely to rise: Nebraska Team most likely to fall: Wisconsin Nonconference game of the year: Ohio State at Oklahoma, Sept. 17 Conference game oof the year: Michigan at Ohio State, Nov. Cheap MLB Jerseys. 26 Biggest potential upset: Michigan State over Michigan, Oct. 29Three bold predictions for the Big Ten1. Michigan wins the Big Ten and makes the CFP: If the Wolverines make the CFP in Year 2 under coach Jim Harbaugh, theyll certainly earn it. Theyll probably have to win two of three road games at Michigan State, Iowa and Ohio State. But Harbaugh has built a dominant defense, and hell get enough from his quarterback to finish 11-1.2. Iowa will be undefeated in November again: The Hawkeyes are sort of flying under the radar, much like last season, when they finished the regular season 12-0 before losing in the Big Ten championship game and Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual. This season, Iowa will win its first nine games before falling to Michigan twice, once in the regular season on Nov. 12, and again in the Big Ten championship game.3. Wisconsin will start 2-5 but still make a bowl: After winning 10 games in coach Paul Chrysts first season, the Badgers are probably going to take a step back in Year 2. They open the season against LSU at Lambeau Field and then play Michigan State (road), Michigan (road), Ohio State (home) and Iowa (road) to open Big Ten play. After starting 2-5, the Badgers will win four of their last five games to finish 6-6.Pac-12Champion: StanfordOffensive player of the year: Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford Defensive player of the year: Budda Baker, S, Washington Coach of the year: Chris Petersen, Washington Freshman of the year: Theo Howard, WR, UCLA Comeback player of the year: Eddie Vanderdoes, DT, UCLA Coach on the hot seat: Mike MacIntyre, Colorado Coordinator on the rise: Tee Martin, offensive coordinator, USC Team most likely to rise: Washington Team most likely to fall: California Nonconference game of the year: USC vs. Alabama (Arlington, Texas), Sept. 3 Conference game of the year: Stanford at Washington, Sept. 30 Biggest potential upset: Utah over Washington, Oct. 29Three bold predictions for the Pac-121. The Pac-12 will be left out of the CFP: For the second straight season, the Pac-12 wont have a team in the CFP. Last year, Stanford won the league and finished 12-2. Only one other Pac-12 squad -- 10-3 Utah -- finished with fewer than four losses. Stanford will win the league again in 2016 with two losses, falling at UCLA and Washington in back-to-back games in September before finishing the season with a nine-game winning streak.2. Washington State quarterback Luke Falk will throw for more than 5,000 yards: Falk, a junior from Logan, Utah, threw for 4,561 yards in 12 games last season and this year hes poised to become the 15th FBS player to eclipse 5,000. He threw for only 289 yards in the Cougars rain-soaked 24-17 loss to FCS foe Portland State in last years opener and didnt play in a 45-10 loss at Washington in the regular-season finale because of a concussion. He attempted at least 50 passes in eight games last season and should be even more efficient.3. The UCLA-USC game will decide the Pac-12 South: The Bruins and Trojans look like the teams to beat in the Pac-12 South. The Bruins have quarterback Josh Rosen, while the Trojans might have more overall talent. UCLA will fall at Texas A&M and Washington State, but will defeat the Trojans at the Rose Bowl to win the division.SECChampion: AlabamaOffensive player of the year: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU Defensive player of the year: Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M Coach of the year: Nick Saban, Alabama Freshman of the year: Jacob Eason, QB, Georgia Comeback player of the year: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia Coach on the hot seat: Gus Malzahn, Auburn Coordinator on the rise: Dave Aranda, defensive coordinator, LSU Team most likely to rise: Tennessee Team most likely to fall: Mississippi State Nonconference game of the year: USC vs. Alabama (Arlington, Texas), Sept. 3 Conference game of the year: Alabama at LSU, Nov. 5 Biggest potential upset: Texas A&M over LSU, Nov. 24Three bold predictions for the SEC1.?LSU coach Les Miles will survive another Alabama loss: Once again, the Tigers will roll through September and October before meeting a familiar stumbling block in November: Alabama. The Tigers will fall to the Crimson Tide, 21-20, at Tiger Stadium on Nov. 5, which will be their sixth straight loss in the series. This season, though, LSU will recover to win its last three games and will finish 11-1. Alabama will win the SEC West, but the Tigers will be the second-highest ranked SEC team and will be invited to the Allstate Sugar Bowl.2. Nick Chubb will run for more than 1,000 yards: Chubb hasnt played since tearing knee ligaments in a 38-31 loss at Tennessee on Oct. 10. To a man, his teammates say hes 100 percent healthy and faster than he was before the injury. With a freshman quarterback possibly lining up under center, Chubb will again carry the Bulldogs on his back. Hell start slowly, but will emerge as a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate by seasons end.3. If Auburn doesnt beat Texas A&M or LSU at home, its going to get ugly on the Plains: Auburn opens the season against Clemson and starts SEC play with home games against Texas A&M and LSU. If Auburn doesnt win one of those games, it might be staring at a 1-3 start. And its not any easier late in the schedule with road games at Ole Miss, Georgia and Alabama. 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 ' ' '

The end of an international season brings thoughts on what has been achieved and what challenges next lie ahead. Asics Onitsuka Tiger España . For Andrew Strauss, the director of cricket who spent Friday and Saturday appraising all of Englands centrally and incrementally contracted players at Loughborough, there is plenty to ponder on both counts.At the forefront is the situation regarding the limited-overs captain, Eoin Morgan, and the likelihood that he will not tour Bangladesh for the one-day series. Unless Strauss powers of negotiation have worked unexpectedly in allaying Morgans concerns, there does not appear much chance of changing his mind. Final confirmation is expected Sunday evening.No Morgan, who turned 30 on Saturday, would mean a new one-day captain would be needed for the three matches in Bangladesh. Jos Buttler, as vice-captain, would head the list - he has led England once before, in a T20 against Pakistan - although, given his workload as wicketkeeper, longer-term Joe Root could be the likelier successor to Morgan when a permanent change is made.Players have been assured that pulling out of the tour will not be held against them, but Strauss could not guarantee an open door straight back if others take their chance. If the player given a place by Morgans absence - Jonny Bairstow or Ben Duckett, for example - enjoys a prolific series against Bangladesh there will be a challenging situation for Strauss and the England selectors, although it seems highly unlikely that Morgan will not be Englands captain at the Champions Trophy. That could be the time it is considered whether he is the man to lead England all the way to the 2019 World Cup.Beyond the difficulties presented by the Bangladesh tour, Strauss remit is also to keep thinking ahead. With that in mind, and the proximity of two major global one-day events in three years, there are likely to be some changes to Englands central contracts system when the new cohort are confirmed at the end of the September.Since Strauss was appointed last May his mantra has been the importance of treating limited-overs cricket seriously. Led by the coaching staff, Trevor Bayliss and Paul Farbrace, plus Morgans captaincy, Englands white-ball cricket has often been spectacular in the last 18 months.That is likely to be reflected in the updated contracts system, which could give greater weighting to white-ball performances while an increased number of deals could be handed out in order to include one-day specialists ahead of the Champions Trophy; the likes of Jason Roy, Chris Jordan, Liam Plunkett and David Willey could benefit. Morgan holds one of the current 11 central contracts as does Buttler who has been a limited-overs specialist for much of the last 12 months.Ian Bell is also in the current batch but will lose his barring an unlikely recall for the winter tours. Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes, two of Englands major successes in Test cricket this season, will be in line for significant central contracts having only been on incremental deals for 2015-16.Ive spoken a lot about taking white-ball cricket more seriously and creating a balance between the formats, Strauss said. I dont think our central contracts system as it stands does that and weve been working on a creating a system that reflects that better.There is also a focus on the coaching staff as well as the players. There will be rotation among coaches this winter with Andy Hurry, the U-19 head coach, Paul Collingwood, Graham Thorpe and Steve Rhodes all having spells with the senior side.We understand how demanding touring non-stop is and how important it is for the support staff to be fresh but its also a way of introucing people to the environment, Strauss said. What we are trying to do with our coaching staff is ensure they are working up and down the programme from U-19s up to the England team.In terms of the selection process there will not be changes in the immediate future. There appeared to be tensions earlier this season when a majority of the selectors, led by medical advice, overruled Bayliss and Alastair Cooks desire to have James Anderson available for the first Test against Pakistan after he had suffered a shoulder injury in the lead-up to the series.Strauss, who has attended most selection meetings this season but does not have a vote, said he remains happy with the panel headed by James Whitaker which includes Mick Newell and Angus Fraser as well as Bayliss. Strauss focus continues to be making the vast amount of information collected on players used more effectively in selection.In terms of the personalities, I think its working well, Strauss said. The selection process has worked really well in the time Ive been there. For me the real focus is the information we give the people making the decisions. Better use of technology, analysis, making it easier to tap into the huge amount of data we have on computers.The final names those selectors come up with for Bangladesh and India, which will be announced on Friday, will no doubt provoke much debate. Asics Gel Kinsei 4 Comprar .

ALBANY, N. Cheap Suns Jerseys Authentic .Y. -- DraftKings and FanDuel will pay $6 million apiece to New York state to resolve lawsuits alleging the daily fantasy sports companies engaged in false advertising under a legal settlement announced Tuesday by state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.The deal ends a legal fight that saw FanDuel and DraftKings briefly halt operations in New York earlier this year after Schneiderman said their business amounted to illegal gambling. Schneidermans office also accused the two companies of misleading players about potential winnings advertisements and marketing material. Tuesdays settlement resolves those claims.Under the terms of the agreement, FanDuel and DraftKings will agree to revise the terms and conditions disclosed to players and post information about actual winnings online.Todays settlements make it clear that no company has a right to deceive New Yorkers for its own profit, Schneiderman said in a statement announcing the deal. DraftKings and FanDuel will now be required to operate with greater transparency and disclosure and to permanently end the misrepresentations they made to millions of consumers.FanDuel and DraftKings agreed to cease operations in New York pending the passage of new regulations allowing them to operate. Lawmakers passed legislation this year Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, signed it into law in August. That allowed the companies to resume operations. Tuesdays agreement resolved the states lawsuits alleging false advertising.Both New York-based FanDuel and Boston-based DraftKings confirmed the settlement in statements to The Associated Press. FanDuel spokeswoman Justine Sacco said the negotiations with Schneidermans office were tough but fair.We are very pleased to have reached a resolution as this allows us to focus on our busiest time of year with NFL, NHL and soccer in full swing, and NBA season starting tonight, she said. Cheap NBA Jerseys .

He has a more-than-decent salary to help him deflect it, but it is draining all the same.Somersets NatWest Blast season has not gone well under Allenbys captaincy and, although they are currently out of the bottom two in the Championship, the pockets of ill will around the ground suggest that there is not a universal belief they will stay there. And when anger and pessimism shows itself, Allenby often gets the brunt of it. The belief has taken hold that he is bullet-proof and it does him no favours.As a Western Australian, there is no Somerset heritage to protect him; at 33, he is not about to get the sympathy afforded to youth. Good days have been few and far in the last season and a half, but against Middlesex he had something to savour: his best bowling figures for Somerset in the Championship, 4 for 26 in 15.1 overs at one stage before the day shifted against the home side and, by the close of the second day, he was left looking at 4 for 67.All the same, it was an opportunity for Somerset to spread some goodwill, but they are rarely the most enlightened of counties these days when it comes to media management. Allenby was unavailable for comment as was the director of cricket, Matt Maynard, who rushed into a committee meeting. And so the frustration of Somerset supporters will persist.Even on a good day, it was hard for Allenby to celebrate. With Middlesex 212 for 8, still 24 behind, and Australias George Bailey the last of his victims - out for 71, cutting at a ball too close to him - there was every reason to anticipate a cooling beer. But for Somerset the mood gradually deflated, as James Harris and James Fuller shared an unbroken ninth-wicket stand of 149 in 41 overs, comfortably a record for Middlesex against Somerset, and including a career-best 84 not out for Fuller.Fuller broke Allenby as the pitch flattened out, prospering square on the off side to begin with and then extended his game. The risk by Somersets captain, Chris Rogers, to play on a green seamer, even though he knew Middlesex would have first bowl on it, had turned sour as Middlesex ended the day with a lead of 125. Somerset were not helped by the breakdown of Jamie Overton who abandoned an over before lunch and underwent examination on a back complaint. He is on Lions duty next week and until more is known must be regarded as doubtful.James and I came together at a tricky time, with us still 20-odd behind and the new ball due, Fuller said, but the pitch played a lot easier than yesterday and we just needed to be patient and bat sensibly. We knew the bowlers were tired and, while the pitch was still green, there wasnt much seam movement. It had hardened up a lot.At least Rogerrs, with three frontline Middlesex seamers missing, had looked his seam bowlers in the eye and asked them to deliver. Cheap Swingman Suns Jerseys. Allenby could claim he had done just that. He is a bowler who prospers on the sort of seamer-friendly tracks that used to be the staple for county cricket, but which have now largely been eradicated by the ECBs new toss regulations. The change has not served him, or others of his type, well. Allenby had three wickets by lunch as Somerset envisaged a first-innings lead. He began by dismissing Nick Gubbins for 67, Marcus Trescothick holding on at second slip as Gubbins drove at a wide one, slightly on the up. The ball that removed John Simpson for a duck, caught at the wicket, had more to commend it, rising a little from a decent length and line. The left-handed James Franklin left an inswinger and lost his off stump and there was a slip catch to dismiss Ollie Rayner for good measure.Bailey was also dropped immediately after lunch off Allenby, Alex Barrow the culprit behind the stumps. It cost 27 runs, but more vitally it cost Somerset time. Had the catch been held, they might have been batting by the time the pitch quietened entirely. Ryan Davies, the wicketkeeper signed in the close season from Kent, is unavailable for selection for personal reasons.When Allenby joined Somerset from Glamorgan ahead of the 2015 season, he asserted that as an allrounder the wrong side of 30 he needed to be winning trophies. But the step up to Division One Championship cricket has not come easily. He cops vitriol on social media and a coterie of supporters in front of the main pavilion have turned him into a figure of fun. For some, he has become a symbol of Somersets shortcomings during the coaching stint of Maynard, the man who brought him to Taunton.To some extent, county cricket has become over sensitive as independent coverage of the game has declined. This is now a world now largely controlled by county websites and the ECB. The message is forever positive. Just as Leadsom, a low-profile politician until a month ago, was shocked to discover the levels of criticism once she stood for the leadership of the Conservative party, so players graduating to England level can be shaken by the levels of analysis that follow.As moderate as his record has been at Somerset, he must feel aggrieved to have been singled out. No one player is responsible for the failures of a team. The gossip around the Taunton crowd was how he had been goaded into calling one Somerset fan on Twitter a knob.Well, some of us have sinned in equal measure - and more often. But it is not so many years since Somerset advised Craig Kieswetter to stop tweeting and, although to impose that would be an unwelcome intrusion upon his civil liberties, he might conclude by his own volition that it would be a sensible thing to do. Arguing on Twitter but not talking to the media seems a strange way to go about things. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

OAKVILLE, ONT. Cheap Minnesota Timberwolves Jerseys . -- Brendan Steeles spot at the top of the leaderboard at the RBC Canadian Open came thanks to some superb play. His silky 65 was a result of driving the ball well, hitting irons close and dropping lots of putts, some from a great distance. Not bad for a guy playing his first competitive round on the course that Jack Nicklaus built. But he also might have had a bit of help from some local flavour -- a little dose of the Toronto Maple Leafs. On Wednesday, while the pro-am was being played at Glen Abbey, Steele was up at The National GC in Woodbridge, Ont., teeing it up with current Leaf Joffrey Lupul and former Bud Bryan Berard. "Im a big hockey fan," said Steele, who lists about a half-dozen NHL players as good pals. "I just love the sport." On his website, Steele says his dream foursome would include Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux, along with his brother. It also lists the LA Kings as his favourite team and says one of his favourite things to do is watch Alex Ovechkin. Steele and Lupul became friends due to location. Both live in the Newport Beach, Calif., area and met while playing golf. When both are home and not off at their jobs, they play regularly with a gang that includes Scottie Upshall of the Florida Panthers and the Calgary Flames Shane OBrien. The foursome for the game on Wednesday at The National was rounded out by Kevin Klein from the Nashville Predators. Steele said there were no money games between the group, it was just a day of fun on the No. 1-ranked course in the country. He praised Lupuls golf game, pegging the forward at about a seven handicap. "Hes a pretty good player," Steele stated. "I know he loves the game." A passion for hockey isnt Steeles only connection to the Great White North. He played the Canadian Tour in 2006 and 07, saying it provided him with lots of much-needed experience. "[It] really got me ready to play the Nationwide Tour, which I played in 08, 09 and 10. It was a great progression in my life. I had a great time up here. Made a lot of friends and spent two summers traveling the country and really enjoyed my time." Steele, who grew up in tiny Hemet, Calif., a town without a golf course or driving range, said his round at the Abbey was one where everything was working. "Ya, its very rare," he stated. "It seems like a lot of the time when youre flushing it, you cant make a putt and when youre holing it, its out of necessity. So its nice to have a round where everything comes together."It was Steeles lowest round since February. "I hit a lot of good iron shots," he added. "I hit them really close. Hit some good tee shots as well – I had to put it in position. You cant really hit the ball close out of the rough." Steele hopes he can continue playing well at the Abbey and perhaps notch a second PGA Tour victory. Now that would probably give him some bragging points for the next game with his hockey buddies.Cheap Timberwolves Jerseys China . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1).
