ORCHARD PARK, N. Ugg Bambina Grigio .Y. -- Patriots quarterback Tom Brady asserted his on-field ownership of the Buffalo Bills again Sunday, matching an NFL record in beating them for the 26th time.Brady went 22 of 33 for 315 yards and threw four touchdowns in leading New England to a 41-25 win. He improved to 26-3 against Buffalo , and matched a record set by Brett Favre, who went 26-9 against Detroit.The Patriots (7-1) have won four straight since Brady returned after opening the season serving the NFLs four-game Deflategate suspension. His absence included New Englands only blemish, a 16-0 home loss to Buffalo on Oct. 2, the first time the Patriots were shut out at home since 1993.After a Bills field goal, Brady threw touchdowns passes on his first two drives. They included a 53-yarder to former Bills receiver Chris Hogan, who beat cornerback Stephon Gilmore up the left sideline.The Patriots then broke the game open by scoring 27 points over five consecutive possessions. The surge began with Bradys 53-yard pass to Rob Gronkowski with 4:18 left in the second quarter, and ended when Brady took a seat and was replaced by backup Jimmy Garoppolo with 4:29 left.The Bills (4-4) sputtered minus their offensive top threat, running back LeSean McCoy, who is sidelined by an injury to his left hamstring. And their defense was unable to keep the Patriots in check despite star defensive tackle Marcell Dareus making his season debut.Dareus missed the past three games because a hamstring injury, and missed the start of the season serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy.The Patriots punted just three times and converted nine of 13 third-down opportunities.Buffalos offense was further depleted with three of its top four receivers sidelined, including Marquis Goodwin (concussion).Backup running back Mike Gillislee scored on a 3-yard run and Taylor scrambled for a 26-yard touchdown on fourth down in the third quarter. Jonathan Williams scored on a 1-yard run with 30 seconds left.Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman also caught touchdown passes, while LeGarrette Blount scored on a 1-yard run.For Brady, it was his first four-TD outing since he threw four in a 36-7 win over Miami last October. And it was the most hes had on the road since throwing four in a 37-22 win at Orchard Park on Oct. 12, 2014.Of his 20 regular-season games with four touchdowns passing or more, six have been against Buffalo.GRONK MILESTONEIt was a happy home-coming for Gronkowski, who grew up in Buffalo.He finished with five catches for 109 yards and set two franchise records with his 53-yard touchdown catch . It was Gronkowskis 69th touchdowns and 68th TD receiving, moving him one ahead of Stanley Morgan in both categories.Earlier in the week, Gronkowski said he bought about 20 tickets for family and friends.SACK ATTACKThe Bills had five sacks, upping their season total to 26 -- five more than they managed all last season. Veteran defensive tackle Kyle Williams had one, his 38th, moving into eighth on the franchise list, one ahead of Sherman White.SPECIAL TEAMSPatriots: Amendolas 73-yard kickoff return to open the second half led to Bradys 12-yard TD pass to Edelman to put New England up 31-10.Bills: Bills punter Colton Schmidt bumbled his drop while facing fourth-and-15 at his own 20. He quickly scooped it up and broke up the right sideline for a 16-yard gain. Buffalo eventually went on to score on Taylors 26-yard run to cut the Patriots lead to 31-17 midway through the third quarter.INJURIESBills: LB Lorenzo Alexander did not return after hurting one of his hamstrings during a punt return in the second quarter. Receiver Brandon Tate (concussion protocol) did not return after being tackled by Devin McCourty in the third quarter.NEXT UPPatriots: Bye.Bills: At Seattle on Nov. 7.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Ugg Donna Scontati .

Western Bulldogs midfielder Lin Jong has spurned interest from rival AFL clubs to sign a new deal with the 2016 premiers.Gold Coast and Collingwood were keen to lure the 23-year-old, but he will remain at Whitten Oval until the end of the 2018 season after signing a two-year contract extension.The move ends a tumultuous period for Jong, who made headlines in July when his clandestine meeting with the Magpies, including a tour of their facilities, was made public.Jong kept his place in the Bulldogs senior team despite the embarrassing episode but he suffered a broken collarbone in the first week of the finals.In his first game back from the injury, he won the Norm Goss Medal for best afield in Footscrays VFL grand final win, but couldnt force his way into the Bulldogs grand final side.That omission intensified speculation about his playing future before Fridays announcement.There are a number of factors I considered before signing and in the end it was quite obvious that thee things I was looking for were right in front of me, Jong said. Ugg Stivali Uomo. I have the best chance of improving my football here, but also to play with this group of players, and under this group of coaches, is everything I could ask for.Im just so proud to be a Western Bulldogs player and look forward to playing a part in its growth into the future.Jong played some of the best football of his 39-game career in a roller coaster season, with his signing a boost for Luke Beveridges imposing midfield group.Jongy has shown improvement year on year since being drafted in 2011 as a rookie, but in particular his second half to this year was outstanding, Dogs list manager Jason McCartney said.He is everything well look for in a player in terms of his character and work ethic and for Lin to sign for a further two years is just a great result for the club. 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 ' ' '

FLORHAM PARK, N. Tony Parker Spurs Jersey .J. -- Brandon Bostick tried to not let the death threats bother him.All the hate mail and expletive-filled comments on social media also went unread for months.The tight end was public enemy No. 1 in Green Bay during the winter of 2015 after he misplayed an onside kick in the NFC championship game that turned the game around and helped send Seattle to the Super Bowl. Frustrated fans blamed Bostick, whose name is still associated with one of the most disappointing days in the franchises history.That was probably the lowest point of my life, Bostick told The Associated Press, and probably one of the hardest things Ive had to deal with.Nineteen months later, Bostick is in training camp with the New York Jets, seeking redemption for a moment he hopes someday simply fades away.Since Ive been here, no ones really asked me about that, he said. Ill talk about it whenever, but they dont really talk about it here. So, Id definitely say its behind me. Hopefully Ill be here when the season starts, make a couple of plays and then itll definitely be forgotten.The path to this point, however, has been far from easy.On Jan. 18, 2015, Bostick was largely unknown to casual fans, a special teams player who occasionally saw snaps on offense with the Packers. With Green Bay leading Seattle 19-14 and just over 2 minutes from a Super Bowl appearance, the Seahawks attempted an onside kick.The ball popped off the turf at CenturyLink Field and came floating down to Bostick. But then, the football bounced through the tight ends hands and off his helmet and was recovered by Seattles Chris Matthews. The Seahawks scored a touchdown and made a 2-point conversion to take a 22-19 lead. Green Bay tied it with 14 seconds left, but Seattle won 28-22 in overtime.It was kind of a blur, I would say, Bostick recalled. I went through it, but I dont really know what happened. It was fast how everything happened.Bostick, who said after the game that he was supposed to block to allow Jordy Nelson to recover the onside kick, bore the brunt of Packers fans venom.That included death threats, people so angered that they wished for Bostick to disappear -- or worse.Its one of those things where you dont really take it seriously, but you should, he said. But I didnt really take it seriously and I didnt really do anything about it.The messages on social media were almost as bad. But it took Bostick several months to click on them.He knew they were there, but was too ashamed to face them, embarrassed for himself and disappointed for letting his team and the fans down.As it went on, I just stopped running from it and just faced it, he said. So, I read every Facebook and Instagram post, every Twitter message.Bostick leaned on his agent Blake Baratz and his family and friends to help him through it all. He also found an ally in former NFL running back Earnest Byner, who saw the tight end being interviewed about the play and decided he needed to reach out to him.Byner dealt with a similar situation while with Cleveland, when he fumbled what appeared would be a tying touchdown in the closing minute against Denver in the AFC championship game in 1988. It became known as The Fumble and drew the wrath of Browns fans who are still waiting for another shot at a Super Bowl.I saw that everyone was blaming Brandon and I saw all of the same symptoms of what I had gone through years ago, Byner said in a phone interview from Browns camp, where hes working as a guest running backs coach. He said he felt like the weight of the world was on his shoulders, and I immediately recognized that feeling.A few days later, Byner got in touch with Bostick and told him his story. The two havent met yet in person, but have spoken frequently during the last several months.I told him that, yeah, its his responsibility and he was supposed to do a certain thing, but you own up to it, said Byner, who wrote the inspirational book Everybody Fumbles in 2014 to help others recover from making mistakes in life. I had to explain to him that, hey, it wasnt just him to blame. Also, the thing I wanted him to recognize was that he needed to take that situation, that play and the results of it, and use it to help somebody else.That, I told him, was part of his healing process.A month after the game, Bostick was released by the Packers and claimed off waivers by Minnesota. He wrote a piece for Sports Illustrateds MMQB.com in which he detailed how the play affected his life.I just wanted to release everything, put it all out there and let everyone know what happened and get it off my back, Bostick said. I just wanted to start fresh.He was released by the Vikings last September and then signed to Arizonas practice squad before being released by the Cardinals twice last season.Bostick wasnt ready to move on from his past at that point, saying he was still not confident in himself and not dedicated to the game. In December, the Jets signed him to their practice squad and hes in camp this summer trying to win a spot at the teams wide-open tight end position.I would say that Im back to where I was when I left Green Bay, he said. I feel my game back, Im enjoying myself, laughing and joking again.He still receives angry emails and comments, but Bostick says he can laugh at that stuff now. A few days ago, a young football player reached out to him asking for suggestions on how to overcome his own struggles.Those are the moments Bostick cares about now, when he knows he can help make a difference for someone else -- just as Byner has done for him. And, to continue to heal from his own past.I would definitely say that it has made me stronger, Bostick said. I feel like Im unbreakable. Theres nothing you can say or do that could break me.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Kevin Martin Jersey .com) - Christian Ponder will get another chance to prove himself for the Minnesota Vikings, with head coach Leslie Frazier announcing Wednesday that the struggling quarterback will start this weekends game against the Green Bay Packers. Matt Bonner Jersey .

It’s not the response that would ordinarily be expected from the leader of an organisation that purports to take the fight against racism seriously and had just been sent a six-page document claiming that a cover-up involving a racial allegation had taken place within his own structure. Women's Nike New Orleans Saints #82 Coby Fleener Limited Pink Rush Fashion NFL JerseyGreg Clarke, chairman of the Football Association, is certainly facing some tough and harrowing questions about his suitability to run the governing body bearing in mind that was the 14-word reply – curt, dismissive, almost implausible – he emailed to the Professional Footballers’ Association after they told him that they thought there had been a whitewash to “close down” the complaint against Mark Sampson and get him off the hook. Adidas Colton Parayko Premier Women's Jersey - NHL St. Louis Blues #55 Green Salute to Service Yet it seems even more extraordinary that it came in response to the first piece of information Clarke would have received that Eni Aluko, the player the FA once championed as an “England icon”, claimed Sampson had made a “racist joke” to her about Ebola and her family, later revealed to be him allegedly telling her http://www.cowboysshopnfl.com/cowboys+tony+romo+jerseyto be careful her Nigerian relatives did not bring the virus to Wembley. Sampson vehemently denies making any racial remarks. Did Clarke care about the new allegations? Was he not disturbed, to say the least, to hear what was being said against a key employee? And how does Clarke justify his position when he appeared to be so astounded that the PFA considered the P. A. Parenteau Jersey alleged cover-up serious enough to go to the top of the FA? It certainly isn’t easy to understand why Clarke http://www.officialyankeesproshop.com/Todd_Frazier_Jerseyshould be the one seeking an explanation when the PFA had written to him http://www.authenticflyersite.com/mark-streit-jersey_c-460.html to P. A. Parenteau Jersey allege that the FA’s technical director, Dan Ashworth, and director of human resources, Rachel Brace, had overseen a “sham” inquiry to clear Sampson of the allegation that the now-deposed England Women’s manager had asked Drew Spence, a mixed-raced player, how many times she had been arrested. The PFA had also alleged that Aluko was dropped, ostracised and found her P. A. Parenteau Jersey 11-year, 102-cap England career being ended for “unLioness behaviour”, a term that has still not been explained properly, within two weeks of agreeing to discuss her experiences in what she was told was a confidential process. Yet Clarke apparently seemed bemused to think the alleged sabotaging of a player’s international career was any of his business and again when the PFA described the FA’s internal review as “not a genuine search for the truth”. There was, Clarke was told, “incontrovertible evidence that makes it clear the purported investigation was a sham”. It was a “failure to conduct even the http://www.sandiegochargersauthorizedstore.com/melvin-gordon-jersey-elite most basic investigation”. Over six pages, this evidence was set out, identifying the FA employees who were allegedly P. A. Parenteau Jerseyresponsible. Yet Clarke seems perplexed, irritated even, to receive the email. Was he not alarmed by what he was hearing? Did he not think he should come up with something better than oafishly complaining he had “no idea” why the PFA thought it was his business? Evidently not – and it is tempting to think the FA might have acted very differently if the allegations involved the England men’s team. You might remember the time Roy Hodgson, at half-time of one match, tried to spin the old Nasa space monkey joke and instructed his players to “feed the monkey”, meaning Andros Townsend. The previous FA regime had contacted every single England player within 24 hours of the story coming out. As for the FA’s response to this latest self-inflicted wound, the statement released by the governing body ignores the fact Clarke had just been informed about new allegations – not least the claim that one member of Sampson’s backroom staff used to address Aluko with a fake Caribbean accent – even before taking into account the seriousness of the accusations facing two of his senior executives. http://www.fitnesswelt.de/fitness-forum/krafttraining-f1/joe-root%E2%80%99s-reluctance-to-bat-jersey-no3-leaves-e-t11646.htmlhttp://myturnondemand.com/oxwall/blogs/post/238203http://www.minimarca.it/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=17678 http://milliauction.com/forum/topic/84921http://beeriders.forumcrea.com/viewtopic.php?pid=17104#p17104http://forum.ironsquad.pl/subdomains/forum/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=906509 http://www.ifl-forum.com/blog-e22301-Jonny-Bairstow-and-Jason-Roy-jersey-touch-gloves-during.html http://www.mktrial.fr/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=48938

SAN DIEGO -- Tyler Chatwood shook off a comebacker and gave Colorado the long outing it needed against the skidding Padres. Jerseys China Cheap . Chatwood took a shutout into the seventh inning and the Rockies beat San Diego 4-2 on Monday night, handing the Padres their 10th consecutive defeat. "Tyler was real good," Colorado manager Walt Weiss said. "He bounced back even after the ball he took off his leg." That was in the sixth, when Everth Cabrera hit a sharp one-hopper off Chatwoods right shin. "At first it was pretty sore," Chatwood said. "But once I walked it off I got the feeling back a little bit and got through." Wilin Rosario hit a two-run double and Jonathan Herrera drove in a run with a bunt to help the Rockies end a three-game slide with their second victory in eight games. They have won nine of 11 against San Diego this season. Chatwood (5-2) allowed two runs and five hits in a season-high 6 2-3 innings. He walked four and struck out three. The right-hander is 3-1 in five road starts this season with a 1.26 ERA. His performance was particularly important to Colorados bullpen, which had to pick up starter Roy Oswalt after he managed to get only five outs Sunday. "I think that was pretty big. We got pretty well taxed yesterday," Chatwood said. "So to go out there and give 6 2-3 really helped them out." Matt Belisle pitched a hitless eighth and Rafael Betancourt worked the ninth for his 12th save in 13 opportunities, retiring pinch-hitter Mark Kotsay with two on to end it. Edinson Volquez (6-7) gave up four runs and eight hits in 5 1-3 innings. He walked four and struck out three. The Padres have lost 16 of 20 since winning a season-high seven straight to move two games over .500 on June 17. "We just couldnt get to Chatwood," Padres manager Bud Black said. "I think that was more of the game. We couldnt really solve him." Chatwoods batterymate, Rosario, drove in the first two runs of the game with a double in the first inning. Corey Dickerson walked on four pitches leading off. With one out, Michael Cuddyer reached on an infield single. Rosario followed with a double to left-centre. The Rockies added two more in the sixth and chased Volquez from the game. Todd Helton walked leading off the inning but was erased on a fielders choice grounder by Nolan Arenado. Tyler Colvin followed with a single that sent Arenado to third. Herrera dropped down a bunt that Volquez tried to scoop with his glove to get Arenado, who slid home safely. Volquez left the game after walking Chatwood. Dickerson followed with a sacrifice fly off reliever Brad Brach. The Padres pushed across two runs in the seventh. The first one came when Chatwood walked Cabrera on four pitches with the bases loaded. That forced in Jesus Guzman, who led off the inning with a single. Chatwood was relieved by Rex Brothers. Pinch-hitter Kyle Blanks hit a ball that third baseman Arenado fielded in the hole. He looked to second before throwing late to first as Blanks beat it out for an RBI infield single. Brothers got Chase Headley on a popup to end the inning. NOTES: Padres C Yasmani Grandal, who sustained a severe right knee sprain Saturday in a home plate collision and was placed on the 60-day disabled list Sunday, will be out for the rest of the season. Black said the MRI, which came back Monday, "showed significant damage to the ACL and MCL. There is going to be a reconstruction of the ACL in probably two weeks and will require a long rehab likely between nine and 12 months." ... Padres C Rene Rivera, called up from Triple-A Tucson to replace Grandal on the roster, made his San Diego debut when he started behind the plate. ... Padres 1B Yonder Alonso, sidelined with a bruised right hand, was in Tucson on a rehab assignment and was scheduled to play again Tuesday. He could return to before the All-Star break, Black said. ... Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko, sidelined with a groin injury, took part in running drills before the game and will do that again Tuesday before a decision is made on where and when he will begin a rehab assignment. ... All-Star LF Carlos Gonzalez was out of the Rockies lineup. He is nursing a sprained middle finger on his right hand and is day to day. ... All-Star SS Troy Tulowitzki and CF Dexter Fowler were set to play at Triple-A Colorado Springs. Tulowitzki, recovering from a broken rib, was scheduled for two at-bats against Sacramento and Fowler, who has a right hand injury, was to play seven innings. Fowler is eligible to return from the disabled list Thursday, while Tulowitzki can come back whenever he is ready. But it is unclear whether either will return before the All-Star break. ...

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- After shuffling players on and off the court all night, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon noticed that he had four freshmen in the game with the outcome hanging in the balance.I was like, `Dang, I must really believe in this group, Turgeon said. But the guys who finished the game I thought were playing the best.Melo Trimble scored 22 points, freshman Anthony Cowan added 12 and No. 25 Maryland used a late salvo to slip past American 62-56 on Friday night.After losing four starters from a squad that reached the Sweet 16, the Terrapins opened a new season with a decidedly new look. Turgeon has a 16-man roster containing nine freshmen, and he spent much of the game looking for the right combination.He expects the procedure to continue for quite a while.Were a definite work in progress, Turgeon said. But its exciting. I just think were going to be a heck of a team before its all said and done. Were just trying to figure it out.American led 47-43 with 7:34 remaining before Maryland finally played to form. Trimble -- the lone returning starter -- made two baskets in the lane to spark a 7-0 run.After Charlie Jones scored for the Eagles, L.G. Gill made two free throws and freshman Kevin Huerter buried a 3-pointer from the left side for a 55-49 lead.AU closed to 57-54 before Trimble made a driving layup with just over a minute left.Day to day, I dont know who my best players are, Turgeon said. I know Melos my best player but (beyond that), from day to day I dont know. The good thing is I have choices. In the end, we figured it out.Mark Gasperini scored 14 points for the Eagles, who finished 12-19 last season and are picked to finish in the middle of the Patriot League. On this night, however, AU gave Maryland all it could handle in a duel between Washington area teams.The Eagles were outrebounded 44-22 and outscored at the free throw line 18-4.Theyyre a terrific team, and for us to be able to hang in there is an accomplishment, coach Mike Brennan said. China NFL Jerseys Cheap. Turgeon started two freshmen, Cowan and Huerter. The lone senior in the starting lineup was 6-foot-11 center Damonte Dodd, who had two fouls in his 2 minutes of playing time in the first half.Trimble had 13 points on 5-for-8 shooting to stake the Terrapins to a 31-25 halftime lead.Maryland led 16-11 before the Eagles got eight points from Leon Tolksdorf in a 12-2 run.After Turgeon called a timeout, the Terps rattled off 10 straight points. Cowan started the surge with a 3-pointer, two free throws and a three-point play.BIG PICTUREAmerican: Playing this well against a Big Ten contender should serve as confidence boost for the Eagles when they go up against Patriot League foes.Maryland: The youthful Terrapins got their season off to a rocky start. Turgeon got 10 players involved in the first half, putting a priority on spreading the minutes. Games like this should ultimately help him determine a rotation for the tougher matchups that loom ahead.POLL IMPLICATIONSMaryland should stay in the Top 25 through the weekend, but at this juncture Turgeon isnt too concerned.Just because people have got us ranked, we dont know who we are, he said. Its OK to have a tough game. And in the end were going to learn a lot more from it. Were going to be a better team because it was a close game.UP NEXTAmerican: Another road trip against strong opposition looms for the Eagles, who face Texas A&M on Monday night.Maryland: The Terrapins get an early season test Tuesday night against Georgetown at Verizon Center in Washington.

HOUSTON -- Down two starting infielders, the Astros did one thing they have struggled to do this season -- finish off the Rangers. Wade Davis Royals Jersey .Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman both left with injuries, but George Springer and Teoscar Hernandez homered and the Houston Astros helped their fading playoff hopes with an 8-4 win over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.I really like the way we fought back, even after they scored the run in the first, Houston manager A.J. Hinch said. We keep fighting and we finished tonights game a lot better obviously.Altuve exited after the fourth with right oblique discomfort, and Bregman was pulled in the sixth with right hamstring discomfort.Neither player was available to speak after the game.Theyre getting looked at, getting all the tests, Hinch said. Theyre going to have a full evaluation before we know anything. Im not optimistic about Friday for either one of them.Houston snapped a three-game losing streak and closed within 3 1/2 games of Toronto for the second AL wild card.Hernandez gave the Astros a 3-1 lead with a two-run homer off the facade in left-center in the second. Springer led off the first with his 27th home run to tie it at 1.The Astros got just their fourth win in 19 games against the Rangers this season.It feels good to beat these guys, Houston starter Joe Musgrove said. We have put up tough battles and given everything we had, and they have found ways to sneak out wins in the later innings. To have an offensive burst in the later innings like that, is nice.After the Rangers closed within 5-4, Marwin Gonzalez hit a two-run single and Jake Marisnick had an RBI single in the eighth to extend the lead to four.I was just trying to put the ball in play with a flyball or whatever, Gonzalez said.Musgrove (3-4) allowed three runs and five hits with seven strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings. The rookie right-hander retired 14 of 15 batters at one point.Its always easy to pitch when you have some runs on the board, Musgrove said. It gives you the freedom to challenge guys a little more and attack guys in the zone.Derek Holland (7-8) allowed five runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings. Holland lost his second straight and has given up at least four runs in each start.It looked like he seemed to fight himself in the delivery a little bit, Texas manager Jeff Banister said. Once he settled in I thought he threw some quality pitches, got some quality outs. Really I think the toughest part is three of the four inherited runners of our bullpen we allowed those to score. We cant have that.The left-handed Holland was announced as the starter after Tuesday nights game, with original starter Yu Darvish moved to start Saturday.INJURED INFIELDERSAltuve entered leading the AL in hitting with a .340 average to go with 24 home runs and 94 RBI. The second baseman also leads the AL in hits with 196. He was 1 for 2 with a double before being lifted.Bregman, a rookie third baseman batting .260 with eight homers, limped into third in the sixth inning after stopping and starting on Tyler Whites groundout. Bregman tried to walk it off, but he was lifted for pinch-runner Tony Kemp and limped off the field.SUPER UTILITY MAN GONZALEZGonzalez played three positions while the banged-up Astros shuffled their infield. He started out at first base, moved to second base following Altuves exit and then went to third base following Bregmans departure. After the seventh, Gonzalez moved back to second. Gonzalez has also played shortstop and in the outfield this season.SPRINGER TIES BIGGIOSpringer got his eighth leadoff homer of the season, tying Craig Biggio for the club record, which the Hall of Famer set in 2001.UP NEXTRangers: LHP Cole Hamels (14-5) makes his 30th start of the season Friday night against Oakland.

Dylan Armstrong agonized over the bronze medal lost in Beijing -- not only because he missed it by so little, but because he knew in his heart it was rightfully his. Antonio Garcia Youth Jersey . The Canadian thrower is one step closer to getting that shot put bronze medal from the 2008 Beijing Games after Belarusian Andrei Mikhnevich received a lifetime ban for a doping violation. "I worked hard for it, and I want it back," Armstrong told The Canadian Press in a phone interview. The 32-year-old from Kamloops, B.C., missed a medal by less than a centimetre -- about the width of a dime -- at the 2008 Games. And while nothing will replace that moment lost, Armstrong said "I just have to turn this whole thing around and turn it into a positive thing. Yes, its unfortunate it happened that way. But its still a medal coming my way so thats the most important thing. "Its my countrys medal too, we deserve it." There have been times a frustrated Armstrong has wanted to scream out to the world about the drug cheats in his sport, he admitted -- that night at Beijings Birds Nest Stadium notwithstanding. "Especially when you know its going on, and theres nothing you can do," the thrower said from Szcsecin, Poland, where hell compete in a meet Saturday. "A lot of the general public doesnt really know whats going on in the whole game. "Doping, its in sport. Theres obviously going to be those people willing to cheat for financial success, and financial rewards in those countries are quite big, you can pretty well be taken care of for life." Armstrong first heard bronze was within his grasp in March when Mikhnevich was suspended after renewed tests from the 2005 world championships in Helsinki. It was the Belarusians second doping offence, which comes with an automatic lifetime ban, effectively wiping out all his results past that time. Still, Armstrong was thrilled when he was in the Amsterdam airport Thursday morning and read on Twitter that the Belarusian Athletics Federation had suspended the drug cheat. "The wheels have started turning," said Armstrong, whose bronze would be Canadas first-ever Olympic medal in shot put. "Im extremely happy, its been a little bit of a roller-coaster since March, just waiting and seeing whats going to develop. But Im pretty delighted to see the IAAF (the world governing body for track and field) has really stepped up their testing and taken greater responsibility with this in trying to catch athletes. And not even the athletes, but federations that are involved in some of this. "Im just happy the IAAF and WADA is finally really starting to nail down these guys." Armstrong is also in position for a 2010 world indoor championship bronze, since Mikhnevich took silver at that event while Armstrong finished fourth. Hell likely get the world indoor medal first as it only needs rubber stamping from the IAAF. The Olympic bronze needs to go through both the IAAF and the International Olympic Committee. Armstrong, who was ranked No. 1 in the world in 2011, said hes proud of the fact he can be a positive role model for other athletes -- proof that competing clean can eventually pay off. "Youre going to get caught, and were really seeing that in the world today," he said. "Some of these athletes who have taken that route, its all coming back to haunt them now. It would not be a fun experience. It doesnt pay to cheat. Just train hard and be dedicated and really want it, and big things can come." Charmaine Crooks, a five-time Olympian in track and field and member of the IOCs athletes commission, said the Belarusians lifetime suspension renews the message about the need to remain strong against doping in sport. "This is a clear message that the system is working," Crooks said. "This is a great day not only for Dylan Armstrong, but also for all of Canada to be able to celebrate in this upgrade in this medal." Athletics Canada chairman Gordon Orlikow added: "We feel this is a vindication of everything were supposed to be doing together." Athletics Canada officials are unclear how soon Armstrong might receive his medal. It took nearly two-and-a-half years before Canadian cross-country skier Beckie Scott received her 2002 Olympic gold medal following the disqualification for doping of the gold and silver medallists. American shot putter Adam Nelson however received the 2004 Olympic gold four months after the original Athens champion Yuriy Bilonog of Ukraine was caught in a re-test. Armstrong, meanwhile, said hes finally at full health after he was plagued by an elbow injury last season, finishing a disappointing fifth at last summers London Olympics. "My mind is fresh and I feel really great," he said. "I took a lot of time off, probably the most time Ive taken off in 15 years. Just went on a few vacations, relaxed and let my elbow heal. Things are starting to come around." The six-foot-four thrower will compete next Wednesday at a meet outside Warsaw, then fly home for the Canadian championships in just over a week in Moncton. Mikhnevich was one of six athletes caught in the re-test from 2005, and the IAAF and WADA have vowed to continue investigating past results. The other five athletes caught were Belarusian shot putter Nazdeya Ostapchuk, hammer throwers Ivan Tsikhan and Vadim Devyatovsky of Belarus, Russian hammer thrower Olga Kuzenkova, and Russian long jumper Tatyana Kotova. Derek Rivers Jersey .

In the response filed Wednesday to the complaint by 30-year-old Alexander Bradley, attorneys say the former University of Florida player is invoking his Fifth Amendment right that protects people from incriminating themselves. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- With the All-Star Game fast approaching next week, its natural for teams to evaluate their progress at the unofficial halfway point of the season. That Detroit won its third straight against host Tampa Bay on Saturday marked what the Tigers hoped to be a turning point in a thus-far mediocre season.Detroit has pounded out 23 runs on so far this series, which concludes on Sunday. Second baseman Ian Kinsler made note of the good feeling the team shares lately, but added the pitching staff has just as much to do with the teams success as its bats.Our bullpen is shaping up nicely, our rotation is shaping up, too, Kinsler said. (Francisco Rodriguez) has done an unbelievable job. Justin Wilson and Shane Greene have done an unbelievable job, and then we obviously have guys who can be steady down there in Alex Wilson and Kyle Ryan, guys that can provide you innings.As long as we can stay healthy, like we have been saying since spring training, we should be OK.Verlander took home honors Saturday after collecting eight strikeouts in seven innings. On Sunday, Mike Pelfrey will get the ball as the Tigers attempt to secure a road series sweep versus Tampa Bay.Pelfrey won his last start, against Miami, despite allowing 12 hits over 5 1/3 innings. He seeks his first win since June 4, but is 0-5 on the road this season with a 4.19 ERA.Saturday marked the exact midpoint in the Tigers season. Detroit has posted a 43-338 record so far, a number thats encouraging considering the team endured 11 losses in 12 games to kick off May. Derek Rivers Youth Jersey. But manager Brad Ausmus would still like improvement in the second half.Overall, the first half hasnt been bad, but wed like it to be better, he said. Pitching is the key in baseball, period.Saturdays loss for the Rays marked the 15th in their last 17 games as Tampa Bay still seeks to round the corner before its too late.Perhaps one of the Rays biggest problems so far is a rash of untimely injuries that have decimated their roster, especially in the outfield. Entering Sundays series finale with Detroit, Tampa Bay has 28 roster moves in 32 days. Nine players have been put on the DL in the past 50 days including four outfielders -- Kevin Kiermaier, Mikie Mahtook, Brandon Guyer and Steven Souza Jr.With all of the walking wounded and a sometimes cobbled-together roster, its no wonder the Rays are still just short of jelling as a team.Any mistake or something that works against us seems to turn into a run against us right now, Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said. I think the best way we overcome that is come out and do what we did against Boston and kind of create the runs ourselves. Gives the guys some breathing room.The Rays (33-47) reach the midpoint of their season on Sunday. 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' ' '

Alabamas Avery Johnson and Auburns Bruce Pearl have taken their basketball programs into recruiting territory more commonly occupied by the schools football teams: The top 10. Air Max 2018 Womens Purple .Both their latest classes include five-star prospects and are currently ranked among the nations best collections of incoming talent, even if the teams remain a long way from that kind of high ranking. The Crimson Tide beat out more tradition-rich programs like Kansas to pull point guard Collin Sexton out of Mableton, Georgia, and got Huntsville, Alabamas John Petty over Kentucky.The Tigers landed five-star center Austin Wiley, a longtime commitment whose parents both played basketball for Auburn. Its perhaps another indication of a culture change within the programs that both coaches think got started with their respective hirings and renewed efforts to lure fans back to the arenas and drum up excitement.The best way to sustain that is beefing up the talent, which both have done.We think maybe some of the kids that didnt take our (Alabamas) phone calls years ago, at least they are taking our calls now, Johnson said. If theyre taking our calls, and we can eventually get them on campus, we think weve got a great shot.Alabamas five-player class was ranked No. 3 nationally by Scout and Rival on Wednesday, the final day of the early signing period. Auburns three-player group was ranked fourth by Scout and sixth by Rivals.Its a change from previous years when many top recruits left the state, including DeMarcus Cousins and Eric Bledsoe, who had stopovers at Kentucky on their way to the NBA.Johnson and Pearl have brought the players in but are still seeking the wins.Entering Johnsons second year and Pearls third, the next couple of seasons will tell how much recruiting successes the past two years will translate into success on the court. Pearl thinks there could be a reprisal of the days when Alabamas Wimp Sanderson and Auburns Sonny Smith regularly had their teams in the NCAA Tournament.I hope we can see a time (like) when Wimp Sanderson and Sonny Smith were at Alabama and Auburn, Pearl said. Avery and I are at Alabama and Auburn; and hes coached well and theyve recruited really well. Yeah, I can see that being a factor. I can see that contest that we play, the Iron Bowl in basketball, being on ESPN or maybe being on CBS. Wouldnt that be a culture change?Auburn has sold out season tickets in each of his first three seasons, a first for the program. An injury-plagued 11-20 second season didnt derail the momentum on the recruiting trail, where freshman Mustapha Heron became Auburns first five-star signee.Wiley is the second. The 6-foot-11, 255-pounder was ranked among the top 17 recruits nationally by several recruiting services. His mother, Vickie Orr, was an Auburn All-American, and father Aubrey Wiley led the SEC in rebounding in 1993-94.Redshirt freshman Danjel Purifoy, another highly rated recruit last year, said the allure is simple.Its just BP, man, said Purifoy, who wasnt cleared academically by the NCAA to play last season. BP is a good coach. He did some good things at Tennessee. When he came here, everybody wanted to be here. When I signed here, Mustapha came here, Horace (Spencer) came here and now we have one of the best recruiting classes in basketball right now.Evan Daniels, Scouts national director of recruiting, said both coaches have brought in strong staffs with good recruiting connections. That group includes former Alabama point guard Antoine Pettway and ex-Auburn All-American and NBA player and coach Chuck Person.The head coaches also carried bigger names than most of their predecessors. Johnson is a former NBA point guard and head coach, while Pearl has led 17 teams to NCAA Tournaments, mostly at Tennessee.They both appear to be recruiting at unprecedented levels at this point, Daniels said.---More AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org Air Max 97 Silver Bullet For Sale .

Kimi Raikkonen has called on Formula One to review the way rules are enforced during races after his battle with Max Verstappen in Hungary. Ugg Bambina Grigio .Raikkonen turned in an impressive drive in Hungary, fighting back from 14th to the top six. However, he spent much of his final stint cooped up behind Verstappen, who sternly defended on a number of occasions, including one incident at Turn 2 which saw Raikkonen lose a front wing endplate when he touched the Red Bull.Though frustrated that Verstappen was not penalised for what he perceived to be weaving, Raikkonen thinks the incident highlights inconsistency from the stewards room.Explaining the incident which led to contact, he said: For me, he moved once to the right, I decided to go left and the other car moved left. Once I decided to go and he decided to move back, I did everything I could to avoid contact...Once you decide to go one way you cannot move back. It was good to somehow half miss him. I lost a bit of the front wing, but there are rules but this weekend, and Im not just talking about what happened between me and Max, in many ways why do we have rules if stewards can decide its OK here and not OK here?If the rules dont apply all the time and to all the people, then we shouldnt have them.The pair nearly collided a second time later in the race, only for Raikkonen to lock up and bail out, narrowly missing Verstappen as he moved across to defend. The Finn was less than impressed with the teenagers driving on either occasion.?There are so many different rules these days that if you are in front, according to some rules you can move but when the guy behind makes a move, commits to something and the other guy decides to move, its difficult to avoid hitting him. In that second case I just managed to miss him but it was two times, in my feeling, he wasnt correct.To further emphasise his frustration about rule enforcement, Raikkonen pointed to the confusion which followed qualifying around 11 drivers not setting times within the 107% limit during Q1.The stewards or the people that decide how things go here, its a joke with the rules. Yesterdays qualifying was a good example with the 107% rule, but they applied it to the guys who didnt go through from Q1 but they didnt for the rest.How can you suddenly have the same rule and apply it in different ways during the same session? Can someone explain me how that works? But this is Formula One these days and something has to change, because this looks bad to people outside, to you guys and I think its not fair. Theres a rule and it should apply exactly the same way, every time, to everybody. Ugg Neonata .

ESPNs Buster Olney is on vacation this week, but hes still compiling roundups. View Mondays roundup here.I felt the pop in my elbow and knew exactly what had happened.It was April 1, two nights before our first game of the regular season, and after sliding headfirst into home, I pushed off the ground to get to my feet, and I felt the pop.There was a split-second when a hope zoomed through my mind that maybe the same injury hadnt happened, but when I grabbed my right elbow and felt for the bone, I could feel the indent from a fracture. I had a flashback to the first time this had happened to me.Earlier in spring training, we had found out that the screw placed in my elbow during a surgery in 2010 had split in half, and I had missed a lot of spring training games. There wasnt anything we could do about that without an operation, but as the start of the season got closer, I felt ready to go -- until I started to get up after that slide.When I got to the clubhouse, Gary Waslewski, our team doctor, quickly examined my elbow and gave me a rough look. He knew what had happened too. Most of the guys still playing the game came back from the dugout and gave me a hug. Chip Hale, our manager, spent a good inning or two with me. Its all right, he said. Its going to be fine. There were a couple emotional hours, and Ill never forget the support I got that night, with the players and the coaches letting me know that they were there for me.That night, the X-ray machine at Chase Field happened to be broken, so we went to a hospital for an examination. I was assigned to a room and waited. It just so happened that Kate, my wife, had picked her dad up from the airport within the hour that I got hurt, so she rushed over. Judy Hale, Chips wife, was also a big help.They rolled a portable X-ray machine into my room, but I knew what the images would show. I didnt even bother to look -- not because I was disgusted by it but because it would only confirm what I already assumed. Kate played lacrosse at Notre Dame and knew what it would take to rehabilitate an injury like that, and she was pretty upset, and it became more of a case of me comforting her. (Or maybe she was upset because she knew she would have to deal with me at home the rest of the season.)I had a hard time getting to sleep that night. When you get hurt, you have a lot of stuff racing through your mind.I knew exactly who would do the surgery: Dr. Don Sheridan, who is one of the best in the world at what he does. I had surgery on my hand before, and he did that. We had become friends, and as we got ready for the elbow surgery, he gave me some confidence. He definitely gave me peace of mind by saying, Were going to fix this once and for all.It was a delicate and complicated surgery. He hoped to get the old screw out of the bone -- without making a huge mess of my elbow -- then take some bone from my hip for a graft to help new growth at the point of the fracture. But he had total conviction.I woke up after the surgery, and Dr. Sheridan came in, looking completely exhausted, like someone who had run a marathon. But he had prepared for hours for this, and he was fired up. He showed mme, with a bunch of pictures from the surgery, how well it went. Stivali Ugg Outlet. Everything is exactly where its supposed to be, he told me. For the first time in years, my elbow was in exactly the right alignment.Then Dr. Sheridan reached out with something in his hand and dropped it into my hand: the old screw. I saw the pictures of the hole where the screw was, and I have no idea how he got it out of there. It was pretty amazing. There were lots of hugs in that room.I began working with our great athletic trainers, including Ken Crenshaw, who is unbelievable because of the attitude he brings every day, the unselfishness. Id thank him for some progress we made, and hed say, Its all you. Clearly, thats not true. There were a lot of other people who have helped along the way, including trainer Ryan DiPanfilo, strength and conditioning coordinator Nate Shaw, physical therapist Ben Hagar and medical coordinator Kyle Torgerson. Its a complete team effort, and when you walk into the room and need something, theyll drop whatever theyre doing and immediately say, Lets do it. Theyre completely invested in making you better. Kate has been the No. 1 rock star, getting me ready for each day, making the meals and working on my nutrition, which mightve been the most important part of the healing.Six weeks into the rehabilitation process, I had a scan to determine how the bone was healing, and we didnt expect much. Having gone through this once before, I was thinking we might not have much healing at all. But you could see in the images that it already had gotten a lot better. There were only a couple spots that still showed the fracture line. Ten weeks in, we had another scan, and it was exponentially improved. By week 12, you couldnt see any lines from the fracture; it was rock solid. The whole thing was normal. It was incredible.I sent a text to thank everybody: our athletic trainers, Dr. Waslewski and Dr. Sheridan, and Dr. Sheridan responded with a line from the movie Apollo 13: This is going to be our finest hour. We had gone from that terrible moment at Chase Field on the eve of the season to a fully healed elbow in just a few months.I remember the first time I threw with Ken Crenshaw, something you have to do incrementally, starting with a tennis ball thrown just a couple of feet. That went well, so we moved up to a 4-ounce ball. Then a normal baseball. Everything felt great; everything was so smooth. When I took batting practice in recent years, I had to ease into it with the first swings of the day. Now Im able to take a full hack on the first swing.On Aug. 4, I got to begin my rehabilitation assignment. I got a single in four at-bats, and moving along to Class A, I homered in my first game with the Visalia Rawhide. On my drive away from the park after the game, I was thinking about how awesome it felt to be out on a baseball field. It felt amazing and powerful to be able to do that again. I didnt care where it was, in Class A or the big leagues. I was back on a field, healthy again, whole again.
