BOSTON - The Boston Red Sox have placed third baseman Will Middlebrooks on the 15-day disabled list with a right calf strain and called up infielder Brock Holt from Triple-A Pawtucket. Chase Headley Jersey . The move is retroactive to April 5. Middlebrooks hit .231 with one homer in Bostons first four games before being scratched from the lineup for Saturday nights 7-6 loss in 11 innings to the Milwaukee Brewers. Jonathan Herrera started in his place and was in the lineup again Sunday for the finale of the three-game series. Holt played 26 games for Boston last season with 17 starts, all at third base. He batted .203 with 11 RBIs. Aaron Judge Jersey . Hughes, 30, is a former Major Leaguer with the Baltimore Orioles, having played in 14 games with the Os in 2010. He played with Class AA Binghamton of the Eastern League in the New York Mets system last season. Mariano Rivera Jersey.The Dallas Cowboys released Sam from the practice squad Tuesday, dropping the rush end as they prepare for several potential reinforcements to return to the defensive line.NEW ORLEANS -- Jimmy Graham didnt hesitate to punctuate a pair of touchdown catches with the goal post-rattling, basketball-style dunks that led the NFL to ban such celebrations coming into this season. Both times, Graham drew penalty flags for unsportsmanlike conduct. With relatively little at stake in preseason game No. 2 on Friday night, the crowd roared its approval, and the Saints went on to beat the Tennessee Titans, 31-24. Saints coach Sean Payton, however, wasnt amused after Grahams second dunk, barking at the star tight end as he came to the sideline. Following the game, Graham fled the locker room without speaking to reporters. Payton, meanwhile, said he was "particularly" upset with Grahams penalties, but also with much of the team after the Saints (2-0) drew 22 flags for 184 yards. "Obviously, that was painful to watch," Payton said. "Its the first sign of a team that has no discipline, and thats the first sign of poor coaching. ... Im very upset." After holding out the entire off-season for his four-year, $40 million contract, Graham appeared to be in fine form with five catches for 48 yards in limited action, including his TDs of 6 and 19 yards from Luke McCown. While Payton lost patience with Grahams insistence upon continuing his post-TD dunks, Grahams teammates appeared conflicted, considering it was a preseason game. "I understand Jimmys frustration with that rule change," veteran right tackle Zach Strief said. "I dont think Jimmy is a selfish player. ... Its selfish in a real game. I dont think Jimmy is like that. I think that was his one opportunity to make it his statement on it." Last year, one such dunk bent a goal post out of place, delaying a regular-season game. "Look, one time in 40 years a goal post gets tilted and all of a sudden we have to change the rules?" Strief said. "People love Jimmy because he gets excited and they love him because he celebrates. The fans love that stuff. And Jimmy is frustrated because theyre taking something away that ... adds entertainment to the game." The penalties after both celebrations were enforced on the kickoff, resulting in returns to the Tennessee 38 and 36 by the Titans Marc Mariani. Tennessee (1-1) scoredd touchdowns on both drives. Yogi Berra Jersey. There were some developments which pleased Payton. The Saints defence had five turnovers and four sacks. Offensively, New Orleans produced several long gains, including completions of 52 and 44 yards from Ryan Griffin to Joe Morgan, who missed all of last season with a knee injury. "It was encouraging that (Morgan) got behind the defence and was able to make a few plays that weve seen him make prior to his injury," Payton said. The Titans were competitive early when both teams starters were on the field. Starting quarterback Jake Locker was 8 of 11 for 75 yards and a touchdown on a 4-yard touch pass along the sideline to Justin Hunter, who made a leaping grab over cornerback Corey White. "It was great to see the way we came out and started," Locker said. "It was something we can definitely build off of." Hunter also was on the receiving end of Zach Mettenbergers first touchdown pass as a pro. Mettenberger entered the game earlier than expected after second-string QB Charlie Whitehurst was shaken up on a sack by Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro. The crowd cheered the former LSU quarterback when he took the field. "That was a pleasant surprise," Mettenberger said. Mettenberger completed his first series by rifling a pass over the middle to Hunter, who raced off for a 64-yard score. Mettenberger finished 20 of 25 for 269 yards, but was also intercepted once and fumbled once. Hunter had four catches for 111 yards. "We played OK, but we just turned the ball over way too much and ultimately that led to a loss," Mettenberger said. "Offensively we did a lot of good things but weve got a lot to clean up." Undrafted rookie kicker Travis Coons made a 50-yard field goal for Tennessee. One of Tennessees fumbles may have cost more than a turnover. Running back Shonn Greene, who has had right knee surgery twice, appeared to favour his right leg after being stripped by Vaccaro. McCown started for Brees, who missed his second exhibition game while resting his sore abdomen, and was 12 of 20 for 117 yards. Griffin finished 13 of 19 for 179 yards with touchdown passes of 23 yards to Mark Ingram and 3 yards to Seantavious Jones. 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 ' ' '
ST. Adam Larsson Jersey . LOUIS -- Francisco Liriano wasnt feeling well. First came a nosebleed, then the Pirates pitcher felt dizzy at the plate before flying out to end the second inning. Liriano was getting hooked up to an IV to deal with flu-like symptoms when the Pittsburgh Pirates bullpen stepped up big-time in a 6-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday that snapped a four-game losing streak. Waiting to be taken out in the third inning, the lefty was bent over, hands on his knees. "I just feel dizzy, weak and dizzy," Liriano said after the game. "I dont know. I just feel sick." Gaby Sanchez had two RBIs in a four-run fourth inning and five relievers combined to work seven strong innings, with key outs from rookie Stolmy Pimentel and Jared Hughes against Yadier Molina. "Pimentel pitched as big an inning as weve had pitched for us all year in the third," manager Clint Hurdle said. "You had 40-plus on their feet, a 3-2 count on Molina, on jersey day. "To get the swing and miss and then carry it deeper, a big-time push from Stolmy." Matt Holliday had an RBI double for the Cardinals, who have mustered five runs in their last six games. They got three hits and a run after Liriano left and got beat by an over-shifted defence, too, when Matt Adams lined out to shortstop Jordy Mercer stationed right behind the second-base bag with a man on third in the seventh. "Were just not clicking," said leadoff man Matt Carpenter, who was 0 for 3 with two walks. "Were having good at-bats, guys are competing, but stuff just isnt falling in for us. "Its just the way its going right now." Molina was a bust on his jersey giveaway day, striking out with the bases loaded to end the third against Pimentel (2-0) and popping out with runners on second and third to end the fifth against Hughes. He entered batting .431 during a 15-game hitting streak. Andrew McCutchen and Jose Tabata each added an RBI off Tyler Lyons (0-2) in the fourth, with the first four runners reaching safely after the lefty opened with three perfect innings. Tabata totalled three hits and is a career .345 hitter at Busch Stadium. "He continues to find a way to find hits in this ballpark," Hurdle said. "Hes really been a solid offensive ballplayer for us here." The Pirates have scored seven runs while Liriano was in the game in his six starts. They jumped into gear the inning after the lefty was taken out en route to just their third win in their last 10 games. "That one inning obviously changes the whole day," Lyons said. "The one inning, thats a killer." Hurdle said there were no health concerns at the start of the game and noted, "the first two innings were pretty crisp and clean." "It just snowballed on him," the manager added. Pittsburgh also has struggled offensively, totalling four runs during its losing streak, and got shut out 1-0 in the series opener Friday. "We got some key hits that we havent been getting," Gaby Sanchez said. "We were finally able to put something together and get some runs across. It was good to get the lead and stay ahead." Liriano walked Lyons to start the third and was behind 3-0 against leadoff man Matt Carpenter before meeting with a trainer on the mound, and then departing. Tony Sanchez added a two-run single in the ninth off Eric Fornatoro after striking out his first three at-bats. NOTES: Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright (4-1, 1.46) is set to work the finale against Edinson Volquez (1-1, 1.93) after tweaking his right knee in his last start. ... Adams made an outstanding diving catch at 1B to rob Pimentel of an opposite-field line drive hit in the fifth. ... Jhonny Peralta hit his 300th career double off Justin Wilson in the seventh. ... Allen Craig singled in four trips and is 1 for 18 against the Pirates this year. Benoit Pouliot Jersey . -- D.A. Points was disqualified Friday from the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am for using a training device while waiting to play the 18th hole at Pebble Beach. Kris Russell Jersey . - After sewage backups, toilet overflows and foul smells surfaced the past two years, nothing at the Oakland Coliseum surprises the home team anymore.ROCHESTER, N.Y. - The Edmonton Rush are one win away from a record 13-game win streak after defeating the Rochester Knighthawks 15-11 in National Lacrosse League play Saturday. Curtis Knight and Mark Matthews each scored twice and had six assists for Edmonton, which improved to 12-0, tying the 2007 Knighthawks for longest NLL win streak. Edmonton has one game remaining Sunday on the road against the Toronto Rock. Jeff Cornwall, Jarrett Davis, Zack Greer also had two goals eaach for the Rush, while Brett Mydske, Chris Corbeil, Robert Church, John LaFontaine and Cory Conway added singles. Andrej Sekera Jersey. Rochester, which leads the East Division at 9-4, had two goals apiece from Craig Point, Cory Vitarelli, Cody Jamieson and Johnny Powless. Edmonton goaltender Aaron Bold finished with 27 saves, while Matt Vinc stopped 26-of-39 shots for the Knighthawks before being replaced by Angus Goodleaf. He allowed two goals on 10 shots in relief. 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 ' ' '
Chelsea Ladies boss Emma Hayes and forward Eni Aluko are broadly in favour of the changes to the FA WSL calendar from next year. Jerami Grant Jersey . From 2017, the FA WSL season will be brought in line with other major European leagues and will run from September to May, shutting down for a month over the festive period.I think its the right decision, Hayes told Sky Sports News HQ. There will be a transition period but in the long term I think its the right decision as long as we get other areas of the game right because the year has been absolutely horrendous in terms of fixture scheduling.As long as we are forward thinking and weve got the right planning it will serve clubs and the national team well. Eni Aluko is excited to see the FA WSL run closer in line with the mens calendar Aluko thinks bringing the womens football calendar more in line with the mens game will give rise to a host of opportunities that clubs can capitalise upon.After four of five years of having a summer league the FA WSL now has its own fanbase, the Chelsea and England forward said.Now its about creating a consistency for fans week-in, week-out to come to games. I think this year the scheduling has been poor and fans havent been able to follow [the womens game as much as they would have liked].With a winter league that mirrors the mens league there are also marketing opportunities but in terms of consistency for the fans I support the change. England boss Mark Sampson would like to see mens and womens double headers next season England womens manager Mark Sampson added: Its incredible really [the growth in popularity of the womens game] from where we were a couple of years ago and we just need to keep it going now.What we dont want to do is lose the current fans. The supporters who have been so loyal to their clubs over the summer seasons will now be excited about moving to the winter and will follow their mens and womens clubs.Hopefully well also get some games on the same day.

  Chick was named the top defensive player after recording five sacks, 12 tackles, a force fumble and four tackles for a loss as Saskatchewan went 5-0 last month. Corey Dickerson Jersey. Chick has a league-leading 12 sacks, a career high. Bagg, a native of Kingston, Ont., was named the outstanding Canadian with 23 catches for 357 yards and a TD. The former Queens star is fifth in the CFL in receiving with 32 catches for 472 yards. Adarius Bowman of the Edmonton Eskimos is the top offensive player after compiling 29 catches for 383 yards and a TD over four games. Bowman currently leads the CFL in receiving with 57 catches for 742 yards and five touchdowns. B.C.s Tim Brown is the top special-teams player. Brown had a combined 522 return yards and a TD as the Lions won three-of-four games. TORONTO -- Defensive lineman John Chick and slotback Rob Bagg of the Saskatchewan Roughriders captured CFL player-of-the-month honours for August on Wednesday. Tommy Hunter Jersey . Weise will have his hearing with the NHL head office over the phone, while the league has requested an in-person hearing with Kassian. Oilers centre Sam Gagner suffered a broken jaw after getting hit with a high stick from Kassian in Edmontons 5-2 win. Adeiny Hechavarria Jersey .C. -- Gleason Fournier scored the shootout winner as the Grand Rapids Griffins defeated the Abbotsford Heat 4-3 Friday in American Hockey League action.MARKHAM, Ont. -- Britni Smith didnt know how it happened. One moment she was on the ice taking a shot, the next she was lifting the Toronto Furies first Clarkson Cup. Smith scored in overtime Saturday as the Furies shut out the Boston Blades 1-0. She struggled to describe how it happened. "I honestly dont even remember how we got in their end," Smith said as she held back her emotion. "But the puck went from (Natalie) Spooner behind the net over to Prevo (Caroline Prevost), I saw some ice in front of me, skated ahead, got a perfect pass on the tape. I shot high-blocker and it just twirled in. "Once I saw it cross the line, hands in the air and that was it." The sixth Canadian womens hockey league championship was the first time Toronto (3-1) and Boston (3-1) met in the championship game and the only time the Furies qualified for the final in club history. Toronto was a surprise finalist after defeating the number-one ranked, three-time Clarkson Cup champion Montreal Stars on Friday in the round-robins lone shootout. The Blades were undefeated in the round robin with an impressive 3-0 record, allowing just four goals against in the entire tournament. The Boston-Toronto rivalry was in full effect as both teams fought hard to the finish. Spooner, who scored the shootout winner in Fridays victory over the number-one ranked Stars, was named the tournaments most valuable player. "This year couldnt really have been better for me," said Spooner. "Obviously nothing beats winning an Olympic gold medal but this is pretty sweet right now and I am really happy about it." Christina Kessler was named the tournaments most valuable player after performing stellar in net for the Furies with 25 saves against Boston following up Fridays sppectacular 34 save spectacle. Wade Davis Jersey. . "Kess is amazing," said Furies forward Alyssa Baldin. "It is great to have a goalie like Kessler behind you." Blades forwards Hilary Knight, Kate Buesser and Kelli Stack were offensive stars throughout the tournament. Knight, who scored four goals against Calgary on Friday, led the tournament with five goals while Buesser led with seven points. Boston has three members of Olympic silver medallist American team on its roster including Stack and Knight while Toronto has four members of gold-medal winning Canadian squad playing for the Furies, including Jennifer Wakefield, Tessa Bonhomme and Spooner. The Blades were 5-2 against Toronto during the regular season and in the second day of round-robin action Boston defeated Toronto 2-1 in its closest game of the tournament. The pace of the final was quick from the start. Boston had the majority of quality scoring chances in the first 20 minutes and forced Kessler to make nine first-period saves. After a scoreless two periods, both teams speed and goaltending was on full display in the third. Kessler was forced to make a breakaway, short-handed save robbing Knight while Toronto failed to capitalize on the power play as the game headed to overtime. A day after scoring four goals against Calgary, Knight failed to score for Boston against Toronto while Buesser was also kept scoreless. Buesser finished the tournament leading with three game winning goals. Boston goaltender Brittany Ott played fantastic for the Blades, making 25 saves in front of a sold out crowd. During the regular season Boston was 5-2 against Toronto, and on the second day of round-robin action Thursday the Blades defeated Toronto 2-1 in Bostons closest game of the tournament. 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 ' ' '
TURIN, Italy -- Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal has extended his contract with Juventus by one season until 2017. Ryan Murray Jersey . The Turin club made the announcement Tuesday on its website. Vidal joined Juventus in 2011 from Bayer Leverkusen on a five-year contract. The new deal will reportedly pay Vidal 4 million euros ($5.4 million) per year starting next season, plus bonuses. The 26-year-old Vidal has become a fixture in Juves lineup and scored a hat trick in a 3-1 win over FC Copenhagen in the Champions League last week. Zach Werenski Jersey . -- Steven Stamkos scored his first goal since returning from a major injury, Ryan Callahan had his first goal with Tampa Bay, and the Lightning beat the Florida Panthers 5-4 on Thursday night. Sonny Milano Jersey . Phoenix originally signed Barbosa to a 10-day contract on Jan. 8 after Eric Bledsoe injured his knee and then signed him to another 10-day deal.BOSTON, Massachusetts - If it was possible for steam to emit from a mans ears, manager John Gibbons office would have been engulfed by a blinding fog after Sundays 5-4 series-losing defeat to the Boston Red Sox. "Thats the most frustrating loss of the year, to be honest with you," said Gibbons. "Simply because of who were playing, where were at and so many opportunities. I cant remember that many opportunities we let get away." Case in point: the sixth inning, when the Blue Jays were trailing 4-2. Josh Thole, whod replaced Adam Lind – more on that in a moment – walked. Rajai Davis and Colby Rasmus followed with singles to load the bases with nobody out. Toronto didnt score. J.P. Arencibia and Maicer Izturis were retired on infield flies and Emilio Bonifacio, pinch hitting for Munenori Kawasaki against Red Sox left-hander Craig Breslow, struck out. Inning over. While the Jays did manage to recover, tying the game thanks to solo home runs by Jose Reyes in the seventh and Jose Bautista in the ninth, it wasnt enough. With one out in the Boston ninth, Juan Perez gave up a single to Brandon Snyder and then walked Jacoby Ellsbury. Casey Janssen replaced Perez and got a ground ball out of Shane Victorino, which was misplayed by Thole and rolled into right field. Jonathan Diaz, pinch running for Snyder, scored the game-winning run. Thole, appearing in only his second major league game at first base but who has played the position 156 times in the minors, cut to the chase. "It sucks," he said. "Ive just got to catch the ball and make an out." Sport often weaves a narrative. In that vein, perhaps its fitting that in their 81st game, the halfway point of what has been a disappointing season, the Blue Jays suffered a disappointing loss. Lind woke up Sunday morning with tightness in his back, the first time this season hes made mention of a problem which plagued him between 2010-2012. Lind is hopeful he misses no more than "a couple of days." After the game, it was revealed Mark DeRosa injured his neck taking batting practice on Sunday morning and wasnt available. Gibbons short bench was rendered even shorter and he was forced to go with the struggling Bonifacio in that sixth inning pinch hit spott. Jordan Schroeder Jersey. Perez, riding a 15-inning scoreless streak, took the loss when the unearned run scored in the ninth. Ordinarily, he wouldnt have been Gibbons first choice to start the frame but because starters Chien-Ming Wang and Josh Johnson gave the club only five combined innings on Thursday and Friday nights, the bullpen was taxed. In one game, it all added up. Just like inconsistent starting pitching, sometimes shoddy defence and hit-and-miss offence have conspired to add up to a 40-41 record through 81 games. The second half begins with a Canada Day matinee back home against the Detroit Tigers. The Blue Jays are expecting a sell-out crowd. "Hopefully, the crowd gets behind us," said Mark Buehrle. "I mean, the last couple of games we were home, it was pretty impressive playing there. Hopefully, we can come back and start playing better." Bautista has 200th home run ball Jose Bautista hit the 200th and 201st home runs of his major league career in Saturdays 6-2 win over the Red Sox. His 200th, a two run shot in the sixth, cleared the Green Monster seats and landed in the parking lot on the other side of the left field wall. A clubhouse attendant retrieved the ball for Bautista, who, by the way, was wearing a pair of R.A. Dickeys pants to accommodate the high socks look. Bautista changed his look to change his luck at the plate and, apparently, it worked. He had three hits, including a game-tying home run (202) in the ninth, in Sundays series finale. Reyes being patient with himself Superstars are used to having success. It makes the first few games after a long injury layoff especially difficult. Jose Reyes keeps reminding himself to be patient, stay positive. "Im just going to continue to go to home plate aggressive," said Reyes. "I know that I missed a long time and its going to take a little while. Hopefully sooner than later, I get my timing back but Im going to go to home plate with the same attitude and just try to put a good swing on the ball. Whatever happens, happens. I come in here and work with (hitting coach) Chad (Mottola) every day on my swing and I need to understand that its a process." In five games since his return from a 66-game absence with a sprained left ankle, Reyes is 4-19 (.211) with a home run and two walks. 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 ' ' '
MONDAY Generally a big fan of Air Canada, but fly to Phoenix on Air Canada Rouge. Dennis Rodman Jersey . I always thought Rouge meant red, but apparently it means Seats only kittens can fit comfortably in. Need to work on my French. Arrive at hotel and front desk clerk hands me a large warmed delicious chocolate chip cookie with my key. This is brilliant check-in bribery. I could find a dead body in my room now and be hesitant to complain. Walking through downtown Phoenix, a scalper asks us if we want to buy tickets to the Pro Bowl that night. I laugh like hes Louis C.K. I prefer my football with tackling. TUESDAY The last Super Bowl Media Day I covered was in Jacksonville in 2005. My lasting memory is of two Mexican reporters from Azteca Deportes who asked questions with hand puppets. I arrive at Media Day in Phoenix and among the first people I run into are the same two reporters, with different hand puppets. I quietly wonder if the original puppets got a better offer and jumped to Telemundo. The problem with Media Day is that half the reporters dont seem to actually work in the media. There must be radio stations who hand out passes to contest winners. A couple of guys in the Gronkowski scrum are wearing Patriots T-shirts and asking probing questions like, Gronk, why are you so awesome? Though that is actually better than many of the questions real media ask. I am standing with Seattle punter and Canadian boy Jon Ryan when a reporter sticks his mic in and says: Reporter: You are Canadian, right? Ryan: Yes. Reporter: Do you like pontoon? Ryan: What? Reporter: Do you like pontoon? Ryan: Poutine? Reporter: Yes, poutine. Twenty-nine reporters ask Marshawn Lynch questions, all getting the exact same answer, Im only here so I dont get fined. I want to ask the 29th guy if he thought his question was so good, it would make Lynch sit up straight and say, Brilliantly posed sir! This one I must answer, thoroughly and eloquently! I am impressed (confused?) with the fans who buy tickets to sit in the stands during Media Day to watch...scrums. There are a couple of hundred Seahawks faithful who cheer madly every time Russell Wilson has a good answer. Some even scream during the Patriots availability, making me wonder if they are trying to affect Brady and his offences ability to hear the questions. They take this 12th man thing seriously. WEDNESDAY Fourteen more questions without answers for Lynch. Give up the dream people. You are not getting him to open up about his childhood and cry for you. Eat dinner at Lo-Los Chicken and Waffle House in Scottsdale, highly recommended by Deion Sanders. I assume the name means waffles for breakfast, and chicken as a specialty for dinner. I am wrong. It means fried chicken and waffles, together, for every meal. Broccoli is not allowed within 10 miles of the place. It is a bylaw, I believe. I order the Tre-Tre because it sounds like it gives me street cred. It has two drumsticks and one giant waffle with an ice-cream sized scoop of butter. It is delicious. I have no regrets. THURSDAY I have quadruple bypass surgery. FRIDAY NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell holds his annual State of the Union news conference. The union has issues. Goodell sidesteps every question like a Russell Wilson scramble. One reporter asks, roughly, Any other employee who had a year like you did would have been fired or resigned by now. Why havent you been fired or resigned? Boom. I cant see the reporter who asks it because there are about 1,000 people in the room, but I quietly hope it is one of the Mexican hand puppets. Goodell just keeps digging himself a deeper hole. I have had numerous issues with Gary Bettman over the years (cough...TV rights...cough), but he makes himself available much more than once every four months. Plus he answers questions, even if you dont always like the answers. A Roger Goodell interview is the same as a Marshawn Lynch interview, just with more and fancier words. SATURDAY I am standing in the bleachers behind the 16th hole at the Phoenix Open, the craziest golf tournament the planet has ever known. The most fruitless job in sport belongs to the volunteers who ask the crowd for silence before players hit their tee-shots on 16 at Phoenix. They scream, cheer, boo, chant, and mostly drink, through every shot. You hit one tight, its a football stadium celebrating a game-winning touchdown for the home team.You miss the green, its the same crowd after the ref called the touchdown back. PGA Pro Jon Rahm wears an Arizona State football jersey for his tee-shot. The crowd goes nuts. Then he hits it long to the back of the green, and they boo him relentlessly. The 16 Bleacher Creatures chant every chant ever used in American sport. Examples: -USA! USA! for every American player, and some Euros who they believe are American because they have had 17 Budweisers. -The Atlanta Braves Tomahawk Chop chant...for no explicable reason. -Bald spot! Bald spot! As Phil Mickelson strolls towards the green. You need to put 16 bleachers on your bucket list. Just dont bring your kids. This tournament is basically the worlds largest nightclub. Except it opens at 7am. Women show up in heels and cocktail dresses. And leave covered in mud. There are more than 100,000 people on the course the day Im there. I figure about 10,000 are watching golf. I always thought the Phoenix Waste Management Open is a terrible sponsor name. But in my three hours there, I see two fights, a couple of guys throwing up, and one young lady (in heels) passed out in the mud. The sponsor name, in retrospect, is perfect. SUNDAY The Auxiliary Press Box is one of the sections at the top of the stadium. We are in the last row of media, with an entire section of Patriots fans right behind us. Chris Schultz makes a point of telling them he picked the Pats to win. Which he did, though he would have told Seahawks fans the same thing if they were behind us. Avoiding getting beer poured on his head is one of Schultzys many strengths. The game is great, but you all saw that, so Ill skip the details. Im a mile from the stage for the halftime show. In fact, from my vantage point it almost looks like Katy Perry is dancing with sharks! Lol. As if. No choreography would be that drunk. (Unless they were at the golf tournament all weekend.) When you cover the game, you always watch the end from the bowels of the building, in a Disney ride-like line-up to get on the field. I have never seen a group of media gasp the way they did when the Seahawks threw on that last play. Even the hand puppets said, Holy S***! (In Spanish) We interview Patriots corner Brandon Browner, who says...what we all are saying, What were those guys thinking? When my alarm goes off at 4am for my flight home, I ask the same thing of myself. By the way, I have now covered three Super Bowls. All Patriot victories. I should really get a ring. Joffrey Lauvergne Jersey . - A mixed martial arts fighter who changed his name to War Machine was ordered Friday to stand trial in Nevada state court on 34 felony charges including attempted murder, sexual assault and kidnapping that could get him life in prison for allegedly attacking his porn star ex-girlfriend and her friend. Kyle Anderson Jersey . Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin broke the news that hes cleared for full activity moving forward.Memphis, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Zach Randolph scored 20 points with 15 rebounds to help the Memphis Grizzlies in a 102-98 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night. Courtney Lee and Beno Udrih each contributed 17 points, with Udrih making all seven of his attempts -- including a pair of big shots down the stretch. Jeff Green also scored 17 points in his FedEx Forum debut for the Grizzlies. Memphis has won four straight games and also sent the Blazers to their first three-game losing streak of the season. LaMarcus Aldridge finished with 32 points and nine rebounds in the loss. Wesley Matthews and Damian Lillard went for 25 and 23 points, respectively. Matthews opened the final frame with a basket to cut the Blazers deficit to six, but Memphis responded with six straight points to regain a double-digit lead. A 12-2 Portland run was opened and closed with Matthews converting 3-pointers as the visitors closed to within two with 5:18 left.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. Houston Texans Jerseys . -- Jordan Morgan isnt going to be a high NBA draft pick and hell certainly never have his number raised to the Crisler Center rafters. On Saturday, however, Morgan showed one more time why hell always be remembered fondly at Michigan. Playing his final home game, Morgan had his first double-double of the season, putting up 15 points and 10 rebounds to help No. 12 Michigan cap a night-long celebration with an 84-80 victory over Indiana. "We werent ecstatic in the locker room, but we were pretty happy," Morgan said. "This was a unforgettable night." Morgan came to Michigan in 2009, and was a redshirt on a team led by Manny Harris and DeShawn Sims. They went 15-17, missed out on post-season play and didnt look anything like a basketball power. Five years later, the Wolverines have won two Big Ten titles, gone to a national championship and head into next weeks Big Ten tournament as the top seed and unquestioned favourite. "It has been an incredible five years," Morgan said. "I cant begin to tell you how much hard work and sweat went into getting this program where it is now, and putting those banners in the rafters." Michigan (23-7 15-3) avenged last years defeat in the last game of the regular season. In that game, Morgans tap-in rolled off the rim as time expired, giving the Hoosiers the victory and costing the Wolverines a share of the conference title. This time, Michigan was playing for pride already having clinched the outright title Tuesday in Illinois. "Our motto since we came here has always been finish it strong," Michigan coach John Beilein said. "We wanted to do that for the regular season, but we also wanted to win this for Jordan and we wanted to win it for our fans, who came out every night during a horrible winter to support us." Glenn Robinson III had 20 points for Michigan, including a tie-breaking 3-pointer with 1:10 to play, while Nik Stauskas scored 21, furthering his case for Big Ten Player of the Year. "No one believed in this team, not after we lost Trey (Burke) and Timmy (Hardaway), and then had Mitch (McGary) go down with his back injury," Robinson said during a postgame celebration on the court. "We wanted to win this for J-Mo, and most of us had never beaten Indiana, so we wanted to take care of that." Will Sheehey led Indiana (17-14, 7-11) with 17 points, while Troy Williams and Yogi Ferrell added 16 apiece. "This is really disappointing -- no one is happy about this," Williams said. "Weve just got to learn from this and get better down the road." The Wolverines were sluggish in the early going, looking like a team that had already clinched everything important. If not for Morgan, who had shed a few tears during the Senior Day ceremony, Michigan might have been run off the floor by the Hoosiers. "I was trying to separate the emotions from my focus on the game," he said. "It was tough -- you didnt see all of the tears -- but it helped a lot to get really involved in our offence right from the start." Things got worse for the Wolverines late in the half, when a technical foul on Beilein resulted in two free throws by Ferrell. Indiana led 42-36 at the half, thanks to 13 points by Sheehey and 10 by Ferrell. "We fully expected to win this game, and we were ready to go," Indiana coach Tom Crean said. Stauskas, however, took over at the beginning of the second half, scoring six quick points to help Michigan tie the game at 48. The sophomore eschewed his normal 3-pointers to attack the rim, scoring three baskets. "I knew I needed to stay aggressive, even though my shot wasnt falling," Stauskas said. "That means trying to get to the rim." Indiana struggled with turnovers in the second half, giving the ball away 11 times in the first 13 minutes, leading to 16 Michigan points that helped the Wolverines build their lead. "It was just trash at that point," Sheehey said. "I think I had four turnovers in there and Yogi had four. Thats just unacceptable for two guys that have been playing this game for a while. I was just trying to make passes that werent there." An already fired-up Crisler Center crowd became louder as Charles Woodson was shown sitting courtside -- he even busted out the Heisman Trophy pose -- and a video from Morgan thanking the fans for the support during his career. "I never played football, but I was a Michigan fan, so Charles was one of my idols," Morgan said. "I couldnt believe it when I saw him here tonight." Caris LeVerts dunk made it 69-60 with 5:39 left, but Indiana tied the game at 75 with 90 seconds left. Robinson answered with a baseline 3-pointer, then grabbed the rebound when Stanford Robinson missed a 3 at the other end. "Glenn practices that shot all the time," Beilein said. "You expect him to drive from there, but he works and works on that shot, and I knew it was going in as soon as it left his hand." The Wolverines were able to clinch the game from the free throw line, despite Noah Vonlehs 3-pointer with 4.2 seconds left. "That 3 really sticks out for me, because we had come so far back," Crean said. "We overcame the mistakes and overcame the turnovers, but they got it done at the end." Joel Heath Jersey . The American secured his first back-to-back ATP match wins since June to leave Tsonga relying on his performance at next weeks Paris Masters to clinch one of the final three places for the season-ending event in London. Tsonga would have moved up one spot to No. 6 with a win over Querrey at the City of Arts and Sciences, but his serve deserted him in the second set as the 116th-ranked American broke twice to reach the quarter-finals. Breno Giacomini Jersey .

Timofey Mozgov posted 15 points and 15 rebounds, while Kevin Love returned from a brief one-game absence due to back spasms and poured in 16 points to go with 12 boards for the Cavaliers, who have won three straight on the heels of a six-game losing streak. I think this is our best defensive game of the year, Cavs coach David Blatt said. We adhered to our princinples. Jimmy Butler supplied 20 points and Derrick Rose had 18 points to lead Chicago, which has dropped six of its last eight games. We got to get better ... The way were playing is not acceptable, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. Joakim Noah missed his fourth straight game due to an ankle injury. The Cavaliers led 24-19 following a quarter of play and Aaron Brooks pulled the Bulls within 28-24 early in the second with a layup. Love then hit three free throws after being fouled on a 3-pointer, James drove for a layup following a Mozgov steal and Matthew Dellavedova split a pair of foul shots to up Clevelands advantage to 34-24. Lamar Miller Jersey. A 9-1 Cavs spurt later in the second further expanded their margin. James converted a pair of layups during the swing, including one to cap it and stake Cleveland to a 50-35 cushion with 1:42 to go in the half. The Cavs took a 54-39 spread into the break and a 10-2 flurry to begin the third increased their advantage to 64-41. Brooks nailed a jumper at the third quarter buzzer to get Chicago within 84-62 after three. Butler ended a 12-2 Chicago burst with a triple to claw it within 90-78 with 7:40 remaining, but Cleveland ripped off the next seven points to put the game away. James sandwiched baskets around a J.R. Smith trey to increase the Cavs margin to 97-78 midway through the fourth and they cruised to the easy victory from there. Game Notes The Cavs had lost seven of their last eight encounters against the Bulls in Cleveland ... Cleveland held a 54-40 rebounding and 46-30 points in the paint advantage ... Pau Gasol provided 11 points and 11 rebounds, while Taj Gibson recorded 10 points and 10 boards for the Bulls. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
New York, NY (SportsNetwork. Derrick Johnson Jersey .com) - Atlantas Mike Budenholzer and Golden States Steve Kerr will be the head coaches for the 2015 All-Star Game. Both mens teams clinched their respective conferences top records through games of Feb. 1 to earn the honor. Budenholzers Hawks have the Easts best record at 35-8, thanks in part to a 14-game winning streak and 28 victories in their last 30 games after Wednesdays 110-91 triumph over Indiana. He will be the first Hawks All-Star coach since Lenny Wilkens for the 1993-94 season. Kerr, in his first season as a head coach, has the Warriors off to a 34-6 start and will guide the Western Conference All-Stars. Golden State has won a franchise-record 17 straight at home. The 64th All-Star Game will take place Sunday, Feb. 15 at Madison Square Garden in New York. Alex Smith Jersey .

Venus Williams advanced to the ASB Classic final in Auckland on a walkover when fellow American Jamie Hampton withdrew from their semifinal Friday with a right hip injury.BALTIMORE -- Matt Wieters struck out when he had a chance to put Baltimore in front in the eighth inning. He made the most of his second opportunity. Wieters hit a two-run single in the 10th to give the Orioles a 4-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday. Baltimore was 1 for 17 with runners in scoring position before Wieters secured its third consecutive victory. "I thought we deserved it," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "It was frustrating, but we finally break through there at the end. Our guys did a lot of great things to set up those situations and we just couldnt get over that hump." Pinch-hitter Henry Urrutia started the winning rally with a one-out infield single against closer Addison Reed (5-3). Pinch-runner Chris Dickerson then went all the way to third on Nick Markakis bloop single. "I thought one of the keys was the read Dickerson made on the ball that Nicky hit," Showalter said. "A lot of guys play that safe and dont trust their instincts and end up at second base." Reed bounced back with a strikeout of Nate McLouth, but Markakis stole second and both runners scored when Wieters lined a single into right field. "Keep getting opportunities, thats all you can ask for," said Wieters, who struck out with runners on the corners in the eighth. "Whether you succeed or not, you want that next opportunity to come to you and you want another chance." It was the ninth consecutive loss for the White Sox, who grabbed a 3-2 lead on Conor Gillaspies pinch-hit homer against Tommy Hunter (4-3) in the top half of the inning. "We battled back, Conor with the big homer," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "Anytime you lose late, it always hurts. You just bounce back, keep going." Danny Valencia had three hits and Brian Roberts homered for the Orioles. They began the day two games behind Tampa Bay for the final AL wild-card slot. The Orioles improved to 7-5 in extra-inning games while the White Sox fell to 9-14. "I made a terrible pitch to Wieters right there on that last pitch and he made me pay for it," Reed said. Dayan Viciedo also homered for last-place Chicago, and Paul Konerko had two hits. After scoring in the third inning of Thursdays series opener, Chicago went 18 innings without a run until Konerko singled in Alexei Ramirez in the fourth. Christian Okoye Jersey. Viciedo connected in the fifth, giving the White Sox a 2-1 lead, but Roberts went deep in the bottom half, tying the game with Baltimores major league-leading 192nd homer. Each team then had its chances to move in front, but couldnt come up with a clutch hit. "There was a lot of Houdini stuff going on in there," Ventura said of his pitchers. "Theyd get in trouble and work their way out of it. With the way it was going today, you almost figured Reed was going to do the same thing, but it just didnt happen." Baltimore left Adam Jones at third with two outs in the seventh inning. The Orioles had two runners in the eighth, but pinch-hitter Wieters struck out on a slider from Nate Jones and Roberts grounded out. Wieters sensed Reed might try to retire him with another slider in the 10th. "I knew that was definitely an option," Wieters said. "I just wanted to stay back and try to find some outfield grass." Hector Santiago threw five solid innings for the White Sox, allowing two runs and seven hits. The left-hander is 1-3 with a 3.80 ERA in his last 13 starts. Baltimore left-hander Wei-Yin Chen gave up two runs and six hits in six innings. He struck out eight and walked none. The Orioles grabbed the lead when Chris Davis doubled into the gap in left-centre in the first, driving in Manny Machado from first. The hit lifted Davis total to 124 RBIs, second-most in the majors behind Detroits Miguel Cabrera. "We have to keep winning," Wieters said. "We have to win tomorrow and come here with that mindset. Its go time now. Theres no more get em later. Its go now and make our run." NOTES: Machado and Jones each had two of Baltimores 13 hits. ...White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper missed the game after a reoccurrence of diverticulitis led to him being hospitalized. ... Chicago lost three at Boston and three at Yankee Stadium before arriving in Baltimore. ...Orioles starter Bud Norris (10-10, 4.01 ERA) opposes fellow RHP Andre Rienzo (1-1, 5.03 ERA) in Sundays series finale. 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 ' ' '
Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork. Thomas Chabot Jersey .com) - Atlantas All-Stars came through again. Paul Millsap, Al Horford and Jeff Teague had plenty of help as the Hawks pushed their franchise-record winning streak to 18 games. Millsap scored 21 points, Horford had 17 and Teague scored six of his 13 points in the fourth quarter as the Hawks held off LaMarcus Aldridge and the Portland Trail Blazers for a 105-99 victory on Friday night. Kyle Korver added 16 points and Kent Bazemore had 12 points in 40 minutes off the bench as the Hawks won without injured forward DeMarre Carroll, who sat with a left Achilles strain. Thabo Sefolosha replaced him in the starting lineup but played just 2:21 before going out with a calf strain. Millsap, Horford and Teague were all named to the Eastern Conference All-Star team on Thursday, the first time since 1980 that three Hawks made the game. Atlantas Mike Budenholzer will coach the East in the Feb. 15 game at Madison Square Garden in New York. The NBA-leading Hawks havent lost since Dec. 26 in Milwaukee. And at 39-8, they surpassed last seasons win total (38-44). They could secure a perfect 17-0 month with a win Saturday against Philadelphia, which will end a seven- game homestand. Aldridge scored 37 points for Portland a day after he was named to the Western Conference All-Star team. An incredible individual performance, said Budenholzer. We tried to make it difficult on him but he still scored 37. Wesley Matthews added 16 points and Damian Lillard scored 13 with 11 assists for the Blazers, who have lost seven of their last nine games. While Aldridge was named to his fourth consecutive All-Star Game, Lillard was left off the team after making it last year and despite being seen as worthy, he didnt take the snub lightly, saying in an Instagram post that he felt disrespected by not being selected. Neither team led by more than six in the game. The Hawks took the lead for good on Horfords jumper midway through the fourth quarter. Later, Horfords rebound and Teagues long pass over the defense led to a dunk for Millsap at the other end to make it a six-point game with 1:30 remaining. The Blazers were never closer than four after that. It was a very competitive game, said Portland coach Terry Stotts. Both teams made runs but they made more plays at the end of the game than we did. Earlier, Aldridge scored 21 points in a tight first half and the Blazers shot over 55 percent from the field, but led just 51-50 at the break. Each team led by five in the third quarter as the game remained competitive. Portland built a 68-63 advantage at one point after a 15-5 run led by Aldridge and Lillard.

Atlanta has beaten the Blazers twice during the winning streak, also winning in Portland on Jan. 3 to snap a three-game losing streak in the series ...

ROME - Juventus aims to bounce back from a loss to Napoli in the Italian Super Cup when it hosts Inter Milan on Tuesday as Serie A resumes with a full slate of matches after a holiday break. Florida Panthers Jerseys .Juventus holds a three-point lead over Roma and has lost only once in the Italian league — to Genoa in October — but struggled at times in a shootout loss to Napoli in Doha, Qatar, on Dec. 23.The squad is energized again after the vacation, which we needed after five months at high intensity, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said Monday. Its going to be a difficult match with Inter as its the first one of the year and that makes it dangerous. Just look at what happened yesterday to Real Madrid with Valencia.In other matches, Roma visits mid-table Udinese, Napoli looks to build on the Juve win at struggling Cesena, and AC Milan hosts Sassuolo.___DERBY DITALIA: When Juventus and Inter play, its called the derby dItalia — Italys derby — as its a matchup between two of the clubs with the most fans in the country.This season, its also a matchup between two of the leagues leading scorers: Carlos Tevez tops the scoring chart with 10 goals for Juventus, while Mauro Icardi is tied for second on the list with eight for Inter.Inter is the only big Italian club that Tevez has not scored against since joining Juve last season. Fellow Argentine Icardi scored twice against Juve in a 2-1 win while with Sampdoria two years ago in the first match after the winter break.Inter has made progress recently and rediscovered its confidence. The team that pays more attention and is more focused will win, Allegri said. Its not a physical or technical matter, its a mental thing.___SCORING HELP: With Inter in 11th place, 18 points behind Juventus, new coach Roberto Mancini has been looking for a striker to share goal scoring duties with Icardi and he may have found his man in Lukas Podolski.The 29-year-old forward has already joined Inter while finalizing a transfer from Arsenal. Having scored 47 goals in 121 appearances for Germany, he has the pedigree to satisfy Mancini.We needed two wingers and Podolski is one of them, Mancini said Monday. He has a lot of experience and I hope he can give us a big hand.Inter is also reportedly interested in signing Ezequiel Lavezzi from Paris Saint-Germain or Xherdan Shaqiri from Bayern Munich. Mancini indicated, however, that it would be difficult to sign either player.___JUVES NEEDS: Wesley Sneijder helped Inter win a treble of titles under Jose Mourinho in 2010 and is now being courted by Juventus.Its no secret that were looking for a playmaker and a defender, Allegri said. Sneijder has great technical qualities. He would help complete an area of midfield that is already very strong and that would create competition.Sneijder currently plays for Galatasaray, already eliminated from the Champions League.Juve is also looking for help in defence. Center back Andrea Barzagli has missed the entire season thus far following right foot surgery in July. The Italy international is slated to miss at least another month.___438 GOALS: Francesco Totti and Antonio Di Natale have scored a total of 438 goals between them in Serie A and will go head-to-head Tuesday in an attractive matchup of the leagues two top active scorers.The 38-year-old Totti is second all-time with 237 goals in 571 appearances and the 37-year-old Di Natale is seventh on the list with 201 in 404 matches.Silvio Piola, who won the 1938 World Cup with Italy, has the record of 274 goals.Were fighting for the title and the difference with last year is that we have to win something, said Roma coach Rudi Garcia.___Andrew Dampf can be followed at www.twitter.com/asdampf Micheal Haley Jersey . - The Baltimore Ravens and tight end Dennis Pitta reached agreement on a five-year contract Friday. Vincent Trocheck Jersey . 11 Ana Ivanovic and American Sloane Stephens, and former world No.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Thursday he doesnt know how footballs became deflated during the game that got his team to the Super Bowl.But Belichick declined to answer questions Thursday after saying he knew nothing about accusations that his team cheated with underinflated footballs in its win against the Colts in the AFC championship game.The NFL is investigating.I had no knowledge of this situation until Monday morning, said Belichick, who said he was shocked to learn the news.I would say Ive learned a lot more about this process in the last three days than I knew or have talked about it in the last 40 years that Ive coached in this league, Belichick said. I had no knowledge of the various steps involved in the game balls and process that went through.Belichick did not specify who in the Patriots organization was responsible for the underinflated balls, or absolve anyone besides himself of potential wrongdoing.Softer balls are generally considered easier to throw and catch, and quarterbacks, specialists and equipment managers are known to have very individualized preferences in how footballs are readied for games. Belichick said he was unaware of the process for game balls until the accusations were raised.Belichick ssays he sometimes hears quarterbacks, kickers and other specialists talk about their preferences. Aleksi Heponiemi Jersey. .I can tell you and they will tell you that there is never any sympathy from me whatsoever on that subject. Zero, Belichick said.Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is expected to address reporters later Thursday.Belichick says the Patriots going forward will inflate footballs to a safe level to prevent them from dropping below allowable air pressure during games.We will take steps in the future to make sure that we dont put ourselves in this type of situation again, he said.The coach who has won three Super Bowls said he generally forces players to practice under bad ball conditions.Anytime players complain about the quality of the footballs, I make it worse and that stops the complaints, he said.The issue has drawn strong reaction from around the game and its fans as the Patriots prepare to play the Seattle Seahawks on Feb. 1 in Glendale, Arizona, for the NFL title.Belichick declined to answer several questions after his opening remarks at his press conference, answering several questions by saying: Ive told you everything I know, and I dont have an explanation.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/ap_nfl 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 ' ' '
