Curling officials will apply to add mixed doubles to the Olympic program in time for the Pyeongchang Games in South Korea in 2018. Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey . Since returning to the Olympics in 1998, two curling events have been contested at each games — the mens and womens competitions. The World Curling Federation made a tentative bid in 2005 to include mixed doubles on the Olympic program for the 2010 Vancouver Games, but it was rejected because the discipline hadnt spread globally. However, WCF president Kate Caithness said « mixed doubles is part of our sport that has taken off around the world, » with the governing body spending the last eight years developing the spread to meet the technical requirements for Olympic admission. The application will be made after next years Sochi Games and decision will be reached by the IOC in 2015. If it is accepted, mixed doubles would be a 16-team competition. « It would allow other countries who wouldnt perhaps have the chance of going to the Olympics with a full mens team and full womens team to take part in the Olympics, » Caithness told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. « We have mixed doubles in world championships so we have done our homework. Hopefully it will appeal to the IOC. » Caithness said the discipline would fit « in the same venue, in the same timeframe and with the same officials » as the mens and womens events. Hungary is the current world champion in mixed doubles. Curtis Martin Jersey . After making his All-Star debut in Fridays Rising Stars Challenge, the Raptors sophomore centre wont be sticking around for the duration of the weekends festivities, thinking about the big picture instead. Lorenzo Mauldin Jersey . — Falcons running back Steven Jackson, who has missed the last four games with a hamstring injury, is expected to practice on Wednesday.MIAMI — Giancarlo Stanton led the Miami Marlins to a victory with his bat and his glove. Stanton hit two home runs and made a spectacular diving catch in right field to help the Marlins beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-5 on Monday night. « He was definitely trying to take that game over not only with his bat, but with his glove, » Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. Stantons 13th multihomer game established a franchise career record and he tied Hanley Ramirez for second place on the clubs home run list with 148. Stanton hit a two-run homer in the first and a solo shot in the third to give him 31 on the season and five in his last five games. « Just feeling better and having better at-bats and pitch selection is a little better, » Stanton said of his recent surge. Marlins starter Tom Koehler (8-9) allowed three runs and eight hits in five innings. Steve Cishek escaped the ninth to record his 30th save in 33 chances. With two outs, Cishek allowed an RBI triple by Kolten Wong and an RBI single by Matt Holliday, allowing the Cardinals to pull within 6-5. Cishek struck out Matt Adams to end the game. Jon Jay hit a two-run homer, Holliday had four hits, and Shelby Miller (8-9) allowed five runs in five innings for the Cardinals, who have lost three of four. « We had plenty of hits, they just had bigger ones, » Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. Stantons diving catch to his left on the warning track took a hit away from Wong in the fifth inning. « I was more trying to protect myself and slide on grass as opposed to dirt and make sure I secure it at the same time, » Stanton said. The catch prompted the home crowd into giving him a standing ovation, with two homers already to his credit. « That was really cool that they appreciate things like that, » Stanton said. Koehler and the Marlins also benefited from key defennsive plays by Jordany Valdespin, Christian Yelich, and Adeiny Hechavarria. DeMario Davis Jersey. « I dont think Ive had that many top-notch plays in a course of a season, that was unbelievable, » Koehler said. « If you watch SportsCenter tonight, theres no reason why we shouldnt have all 10 (top plays). » The Cardinals were 2 for 11 with runners in scoring position. The Marlins led 3-0 after Stantons homers, but the Cardinals tied it with three runs in the fourth. « I made some pitches, but when it came down to the best hitter on their team I threw two of the worst pitches Ive probably thrown all night, » Miller said. Hechavarria and Yelich drove in runs in the bottom of the inning to put the Marlins up 5-3. TRAINERS ROOM Marlins hard-throwing right-hander Carter Capps, who has been out since May 25 with a right elbow sprain, could make his return to the team as early as September. « Hes feeling good and from what Ive heard, everything is going great, hes feeling great, » Redmond said. UP NEXT Cardinals right-hander Adam Wainwright (14-6, 2.28) will take the mound Tuesday against Marlins right-hander Jarred Cosart (0-1, 6.75). Wainwright will be making his first start against the Marlins in four years and Cosart will be making his return to the mound after being scratched from his last start with a sore left oblique. CISHEK IN RARE COMPANY Cishek became only the third pitcher in Marlins history to record back-to-back 30-save seasons, joining Juan Carlos Oviedo (2010-11) and Robb Nenn (1996-97). JAY SHOWING POWER Jay has hit two home runs in his last three games after going homerless in his previous 93 games. The Miami native was able to hit his third homer of the season in front of a number of friends and family members in attendance. « Its always fun to come back home, but Im here trying to win some games, » Jay said. 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 ‘ ‘ ‘

MONACO — Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso posted the fastest time in the rain-disrupted second practice session at the Monaco Grand Prix on Thursday. Daniel Murphy Jersey . Formula One leader Lewis Hamilton was second. Alonso, third overall in the championship, clocked 1 minute, 18.482 seconds. Hamilton was .419 seconds behind, and Sebastian Vettel .535 behind for Red Bull. Frenchman Jean-Eric Vergne was fourth best for Toro Rosso. Spectators waited for nearly 40 minutes as drivers stayed in their garages until the track dried after some showers. Hamilton was fastest in the morning session ahead of Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg, and Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo. There is a final practice session on Saturday morning before qualifying in the afternoon. Hamilton, who has won 26 races, has never started from the pole in Monaco despite securing 35 career poles elsewhere. « It felt really good out there today. I had a good first session and was then really pleased to get those last few laps in the dry this afternoon, » Hamilton said. « Im feeling pretty set for Saturday. There is still some work to do, but we have tomorrow to look into that. » The British driver is confident he can end his barren run in Monaco, where he has not won since 2008, the year he won the F1 title. « This track is one of the coolest ever, » Hamilton said. « Its such a classic race, and Ive been trying to win here again since 2008, so Im hoping this is the year as we have such a great car. » Hamilton has four poles this season, with Rosberg clinching the other, meaning Mercedes have swept all five races and all five poles. Hamilton has won the previous four and Rosberg took the opening GP in Australia, where Hamilton retired with engine failure. Rosberg, who secured his maiden Monaco GP win last year, trails Hamilton by three points overall. « It seems that we are looking very quick here again, although our main competitors seem to be a little closer to us than in Barcelona, » the German said. « The conditions werent great this afternoon so I didnt take any risks as there was nothing to learn on the wet parts of the track. » Monacos tight, sinewy circuit makes overtaking almost impossible and puts whoever gets pole into a prime position. But given that engine power is less important than at other races, Red Bull could end Mercedes winning streak if Vettel or Ricciardo can upstage Hamilton and Rosberg in qualifying. « The nature of the circuit doesnt put such a premium on straight-line performance, which has obviously been our weakness this year. Were hoping to give these guys (Mercedes) a run for their money, » Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said. « Its been an encouraging start to the weekend. When you consider where we were preseason, weve come a long way in a couple of months. » Vettel was fifth fastest in the first practice behind Alonso. The Spaniard is 51 points behind Hamilton but four ahead of Vettel, his main rival from previous seasons, who is fourth. In the mornings run in overcast, chilly conditions, British driver Max Chilton spun off in his Marussia car, while struggling German driver Adrian Sutil stalled his Sauber. Swedish driver Marcus Ericsson slammed his Caterham into the barriers with a minute remaining in the afternoon run. Washington Nationals Jerseys . « I have had no discussions with Chad Johnson or his representation, » Popp said Friday in an email.

Check out todays trade-related reports and speculation from around the NHL beat. And follow TSN.ca through Deadline Day for all the updates. In a New York Minute TSNs Hockey Insiders were at work on Tuesday on Insider Trading, discussing the possibility of the New York Rangers dealing pending unrestricted free agents Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi. « Its my understanding that if the Rangers do not sign Callahan and/or Girardi by the trade deadline, they are determined to trade one or both of them, whichever guy is not signed, » said TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie. TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger added, « Im told that Rangers general manager Glen Sather has reached out to a number of general managers and he is gauging trade interest on Callahan, less so on Girardi. » Eye on Miller McKenzie also discussed the ongoing interest in Sabres goalie Ryan Miller. « The Minnesota Wild hhavent made an offer, but theyre waiting to see what happens with Josh Hardings health situation, » explained McKenzie. Shawn Kelley Jersey. « The St. Louis Blues might have some lukewarm interest. Right now, as far as Ryan Miller goes, I wouldnt say its frontburner, but theyre trying to trade him. » Defensive Shuffle? The Ottawa Senators announced on Tuesday that Cody Ceci will remain with the club for the rest of the season. NBCSports.com speculates that several other of Ottawas defencemen could now become trade bait in exchange for a scoring winger to play alongside Jason Spezza.

Fluto Shinzawa of The Boston Globe discussed the possibility of former Bruin Brad Boyes being moved by the Florida Panthers. Shinzawa says that with the Panthers being eight points out of a playoff spot and Boyes being a pending unrestricted free agent, the veteran will draw attention on the trade market. 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 ‘ ‘ ‘

CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs took another step toward the future on Tuesday, designating second baseman Darwin Barney for assignment. Derick Brassard Jersey . Second baseman Emilio Bonifacio was activated from the disabled list to take Barneys place on the roster. Bonifacio had been out since June 13 because of strained right oblique. The 28-year-old Barney won a Gold Glove in the 2012, when his 141 consecutive games without an error tied a major league record. But he regressed noticeably at the plate and, with the recent promotion of Arismendy Alcantara and other infield prospects on the way, he no longer fit the master plan. « He got in a position here where playing time started to be scarce for him — whether it was (Luis) Valbuena, whether it was Bonifacio or it was Alcantara — and that necessitated the move, » general manager Jed Hoyer said. « It certainly wasnt easy. He is such a great guy and a great competitor, and hopefully, through this process, we can get him to a place where he can help a contender and get a feel for a pennant race. » Barney was hitting .230 with two home runs and 16 RBIs in 72 games. Last season he hit .208 with six home runs and 41 RBI in 141 games, all except two as a starter. The Cubs have 10 days to trade or place Barney on unconditional waivers. If he clears waivers, the team can release him. Earlier this month, veteran pitcher Jason Hammel and Jeff Samardzija were dealt to the Oakland Athletics highly regarded shortstop prospect Addison Russell. More moves were expected in the weeks ahead for the 40-57 Cubs. Also, pitcher Kyle Hendricks was recalled from Iowa and pitcher Zac Rosscup was optioned to the Triple-A club. Hendricks was the scheduled starter for the game against the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night. Erik Karlsson Jersey . If Vettel wins at Suzuka on Sunday, and his nearest rival Fernando Alonso finishes worse than eighth, the German driver will join his compatriot Michael Schumacher and Argentine Juan-Manuel Fangio as the only men to win four consecutive titles. Nate Thompson Jersey .com) – The Chicago Cubs reportedly signed recently-acquired outfielder Dexter Fowler to a one-year contract on Friday, avoiding arbitration. PARIS — Eugenie Bouchard reached her second straight Grand Slam semifinal Tuesday as she defeated Spains Carla Suarez Navarro 7-6 (4), 2-6, 7-5 at the French Open. However, fellow Canadian Milos Raonic came up short in his bid to reach the mens final four at Roland Garros, dropping a 7-5, 7-6 (5), 6-4 decision to Novak Djokovic of Serbia. Earlier this year, Bouchard reached the Australian Open semifinal but lost to eventual champion Li Na of China. The 20-year-old from Westmount, Que., will next meet Russias Maria Sharapova after the 2012 champion beat Spains Garbine Muguruza 1-6, 7-5, 6-1. « Im very content with a win like this, » said Bouchard. « It was a battle throughout. She played very well especially on long points. « The last set was key for me. Im really excited to be playing Sharapova in a big match here. » Bouchard won the first set in an hour, but dropped the second after losing her last two service games. Suarez Navarro jumped out to a 4-1 lead in the third set before the 18th-seeded Canadian fought back with a key break and service holds. « I wouldnt say I surprised myself, no, » said Bouchard. « Ive come back in matches before. Tennis can be like that, a bit up and down. I just really tried to forget about what the score was or anything and just tried to play the right way, you know. « Once I started going for my shots a little bit more it started working better. The third set it was just a really cool atmosphere I think for both of us to be playing like that. Even if I was down 5-2 or 4-1 in the third, (I didnt) worry too much — keep going, keep going, keep going, and it paid off in the end. » Bouchard earned a match point but double-faulted. She put a backhand long on a second chance before clinching victory after two hours 22 minutes when her opponent came up short on a return. Bouchard finished with 46 winners, 38 unforced errors and breaks on six of 14 chances. Djokovic, meanwhile, is a six-time major champion but he still needs to win the French Open to complete a career Grand Slam. He reached the semifinals at Roland Garros the last four years, but only made one final, losing to Rafael Nadal in 2012. Raonic, the No. 8 seed from Thornhill, Ont., fired 21 aces but converted only one of two break opportunities in the match, which also lasted two hours 22 minutes. Raonic, the first Canadian man to reach a Grand Slam singles quarter-final in the post-1968 Open era, stalled in the third set but managed to break Djokovic as the second seed was serving for victory at 5-2. Djokovic closed it out two games later when a Raonic forehand sailed wide. The last Canadian to reach a mens singles semifinals at a Grand Slam was William Johnston at the 1923 US Championships. Robert Powell (Wimbledon, 1908) is the only oother Canadian to reach a mens singles semifinal. Fredrik Claesson Jersey. In mixed doubles, Torontos Daniel Nestor and French partner Kristina Mladenovic dropped a 6-3, 1-6, 10-3 quarter-final decision to third seeds Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan and Brazils Bruno Soares. Sharapova, a four-time Grand Slam winner, has won both of her previous matches against Bouchard, including a second-round match last year in Paris. Following the tradition begun in Melbourne earlier this year, a fan tossed a stuffed animal to Bouchard and she took it to her on-court television interview. Former French player Fabrice Santoro then insisted on taking a photo with Bouchard as the crowd cheered. Bouchard is the third Canadian woman to reach the Roland Garros quarter-finals after Carling Bassett-Seguso (1984, 1986) and Helen Kelesi (1988, 1989). Bouchard and Bassett-Seguso are the only players to reach the semifinals at a Grand Slam (Bassett-Seguso, 1984 US Open). Sharapova, meanwhile, started slow Tuesday by dropping four of her first five games. She then started to land her shots and her serves with more consistency and won nine of the last 10 games. Muguruza, who was playing in a Grand Slam quarter-final for the first time in her career, eliminated defending champion Serena Williams in the second round. Sharapova lost in the semifinals at Roland Garros in 2011, then won the title a year later to complete a career Grand Slam. She lost in last years final to Williams. « It was so tough losing in the final last year, being the defending champion, » Sharapova said. « This year, to come back, I have the extra motivation to go further, and to be back on (this) stage is a really nice feeling. » Sharapova opened her match with a double fault, the first of eight in the match. And she lost 15 of the first 20 points. But even though Sharapova held in the fifth game, she was broken again, this time at love, to lose the first set. Things changed rather quickly in the second set. At 1-1, Sharapova finally broke, with some help from Muguruza. The unseeded Spaniard, ranked 35th in the world, double-faulted twice in a row to give Sharapova her second break point of the match. The tall Russian converted when Muguruza sent a backhand long. Although Sharapova was broken again in the set, again with a double fault, she started to hold serve more easily while giving Muguruza more trouble while receiving. By the time the third set started, Sharapova was moving Muguruza all over the court, landing her forehands and backhands easily. The only hiccup came in the fourth game, when Muguruza had five break points but couldnt convert any of them. « That was one of the most important games, » Sharapova said. « After I won that game, I certainly gained more confidence. » Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ‘ ‘ ‘

SANDY, Utah – Robbie Keane scored late in the first half and the Los Angeles Galaxy bounced back from a season-opening loss with a 1-1 draw against Real Salt Lake on Saturday. Rougned Odor Jersey . Alvaro Saborio had his first goal of the season for Salt Lake (1-0-2), which drew for the second straight match. The Galaxy (0-1-1) stole a road point against the team that beat them in the MLS season opener. Salt Lake struck in the 19th minute when Joao Plata crossed the ball to Saborio, who was unmarked near the far post. He took full advantage, settling the ball and firing it from just outside the 6-yard box for an easy goal. The Galaxy capitalized on a poor pass by Chris Wingert at midfield to pull the goal back before halftime. Following the takeaway, Keane outmanuvered Chris Schuler and threaded the ball inside the near post in the 35th minute. Ivan Rodriguez Jersey .A. Happs hold on a spot in the Blue Jays starting rotation is in question. Ferguson Jenkins Jersey .com) – Coming off a pair of tough losses last week, the Syracuse Orange will try to put an end to their first losing skid of the season when they pay a visit to the Maryland Terrapins at the Comcast Center on Monday night in Atlantic Coast Conference action.The Chicago Blackhawks werent ready to give up on their dreams of winning consecutive Stanley Cup titles the last time out. The defending champions hope to stay alive for a second straight time tonight when they visit the Los Angeles Kings for Game 6 of the Western Conference Final. The Blackhawks are attempting to return to the Cup Finals after falling behind three games to one in this postseason battle against Los Angeles. The Kings, who lost in five games to Chicago in last springs conference finals, couldnt close out the Hawks in their first attempt on Wednesday, dropping a 5-4 double-overtime decision in the Windy City. Chicago, which is trying to become the first team to win consecutive titles since Detroit in 1997 and 98, improved to 8-1 as the host in these playoffs with the Game 5 triumph, but it will have to win its first road game of the series to keep on playing. The Kings won Game 3 at the Staples Center by a 4-3 score and pushed their series lead to 3-1 with a 5-2 decision Monday night in the City of Angels. All told, Los Angeles is 5-3 as the host this postseason and is 19-7 in home playoff games since the start of the 2012 playoffs, when the Kings won their only Stanley Cup title. If the Blackhawks win Friday the clubs will meet Sunday evening in Chicago for a decisive Game 7. Michal Handzus, a former L.A. King, provided the OT heroics for Chicago on Wednesday, scoring at 2:04 of the second overtime to send the series back to the Staples Center. Brandon Saad held the puck along the right wing below the circles and dished ahead to Handzus, who controlled the disc for a second before lifting a backhander under the crossbar to end the contest. « Two guys went on him and I got open, »Handzus said of his linemate Saad. « I was surprised I got open like that but he waited and waited and gave me a great pass. » For Handzus, it was his first career postseason overtime score, and just his second playoff game-winner after recording the only goal in a 1-0 Flyers victory against Ottawa in the 2003 second round. Saad ended up with a goal and two assists for the Blackhawks, who wasted a pair of early two-goal leads and fell behind by a goal before rallying to extend the series. « We dont want the season to end now. Were having too much fun playing, » Saad admitted. Brent Seabrook, Johnny Oduya and Ben Smith also scored, while Patrick Kane notched a career playoff-high four helpers for Chicago. Kane became the first Blackhawk to assist on four goals in one playoff game since Steve Larmer did so on April 30, 1990 in a Norris Division final-clinching 8-2 rout of the St. Louis Blues . Kane hasnt scored a goal since getting the OT winner and series clincher in Game 6 of Chicagos second-round series against Minnesota, but the reigning Conn Smythe winner has posted five assists over the last two games.. Nolan Ryan Jersey. Corey Crawford looked shaky at times, but emerged with the win thanks to 40 saves. On Thursdays off day, Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews talked about keeping the pressure on Los Angeles from the start of tonights battle. « Were going to work on getting our first win on the road against this team, » said Toews. « We want to stay with the mentality, that were putting all the pressure on them. Its going to be tough for them to close it out and win that fourth game against us. We showed how resilient of a group we are last night. Were going to do it again. » Dustin Brown, Marian Gaborik, Jarret Stoll and Tanner Pearson lit the lamp for L.A. Pearsons tally extended his point streak to six games, matching the Kings postseason record for a rookie along with Warren Rychel (1993) and Daryl Evans (1982). L.A. has the comfort of home ice on Friday to try and reach the Stanley Cup Finals for the second time in the last three seasons, but the club knows the fourth win of a series can be extremely hard to come by. « If anyone thinks that its easy … its not easy, » Kings forward Justin Williams said of closing out an opponent in the third round. « Attaining your ultimate goal is never easy and were going to do our best to get it done. » Jonathan Quick took the loss despite stopping 40 pucks. Kane had a hand in all three Blackhawk scores in the opening 20 minutes on Wednesday before notching the secondary assist on Handzus winner. However, after going up by scores of 2-0 and 3-1 in the opening period, the Blackhawks found themselves down 4-3 heading into the final stanza of regulation, but Smith scored early in the third to even things. Saad fired a low shot from the left wing that was kicked aside by Quick, but Smith beat his checker and potted the rebound for a 4-4 game just 77 seconds into the third period. The Blackhawks had a prime chance to win in regulation when Stoll committed a tripping infraction with 3:11 on the clock. Quick made two acrobatic stops, one from Kane and the rebound on Bryan Bickell early in the advantage and added two more before its completion. Acting on adrenaline and instinct, the first overtime featured a dozen quality chances split between the clubs. Los Angeles claimed a 10-8 shot edge in a briskly-paced fourth period. « Overtime, Ive seen a lot of games, been involved in a lot of those, » said Chicago head coach Joel Quenneville. « That might have been the greatest overtime Ive seen. » The Blackhawks have come back from down 3-1 to win a series only once in their history, but it was last spring against Detroit, which won three of the first four games against Chicago in the Western Conference semifinals before losing the final three tilts. The Blackhawks also needed to win Game 7 in overtime to down the Red Wings. 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 ‘ ‘ ‘

clearing the way for Mansons shot.

NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP GAME – THE KEYS: I cant wait for the game tonight and what should be an outstanding finish to what has been an entertaining NCAA Tournament to say the least. Josh Manson Jersey . You can catch all of the action live tonight at 8:30pm et/5:30pm pt on TSN with the pre-game show before the 9:10pm et/6:10pm pt tip-off. Here are 3 Keys for each team.  Enjoy! UCONN KEYS: 1. DOMINATE THE GUARD PLAY: Shabazz Napier and Ryan Boatright have been terrific so far in the tournament. Their ability to take you out of your comfort level with their tenacious defense and their ability to create and make their own shots is big. They are more experienced and, in my opinion, as talented, if not more talented, than the Harrison twins – they must dominate this match-up and frustrate the young guards. 2. REBOUNDING: Kentucky is +9 per game in the Tournament on the boards. That is a huge disparity and a big part of Kentuckys game is the second or third shot per offensive trip. UConn must neutralize this or theyll be in trouble. This is not one of UConns strengths. but theyve got to find a way to win the 50/50 battles and be physical. With the Wildcats, UConn is giving up lots of size inside. 3. DeANDRE DANIELS: After averaging 20 points and nine boards in his last three games, Daniels has to continue to be that versatilebig man for the Huskies inside and use his shot-making ability while facing the basket. Hes a tough cover and his ability to make the three-ball and lure you away from the hoop can take the Kentucky big out of their comfort zone a bit. They did a wonderful job stopping Wisconsins big man, Frank Kaminsky, with lots of attention. Daniels has to pick his spots, yet has to assert his game early and establish the fact that hes a guy getting lots of touches and attract the double team to open things up for teammates. KENTUCKY KEYS: 1. LATE SHOT CLOCK & GAME CLOCK SITUATIONS: The Wildcats have really impressed me with their discipline and poise in the tight situations. Decision-making with the ball and the types of plays and shots theyve been getting have been much improved over the early part of the season. Theyve been excellent at being organized and fundamentally sound on defence with a great attention to detail as the game progresses. They must continue to be sound on both sides of the ball. 2. TURNOVER MARGIN: Take care of the rock. Thats what it comes down to. Kentucky has been really steady in this regard and helped prevent run outs against their defence. They are a very good half-court defensive team that has the quickness, athleticism, size and length to frustrate opponents. You get folks into that type of game and then grind them. UConns guards want to run and create chances in open space. The fewer turnovers, the more the style of play favours you. 3. MARCUS LEE / JULIUS RANDLE / JAMES YOUNG: Energy, offensive rebounds, blocks, deflections, post scoring effort plays and paint domination are major areas that these, among many of the Kentucky young front court players, can get the upper hand over the Huskies. Beat them to the punch and be the better front court.  Ryan Getzlaf Jersey . Switzerland faces Belgium or Kazakhstan in the quarterfinals in April. Serbia dropped into the World Group playoffs in September. A confident Chiudinelli and Lammer defeated veteran doubles player Zimonjic and young Krajinovic 7-6 (3), 3-6, 7-6 (2), 6-2. Jacob Larsson Jersey .

He was invited to the Houston Texans rookie camp, but was not offered a contract.NORFOLK, Va. — The St. Johns IceCaps got third-period goals from four different skaters, and weathered a Norfolk offensive storm to earn a 5-3 win over the Admirals for a 2-1 lead in their American Hockey League Eastern Conference playoff series. Josh Morrisey got the offence going with a goal just 39 seconds into the final period and Ben Chiarot, Jerome Samson and Adam Lowry added the others for IceCaps. « To get a goal in the first shift of such an important game lifts the bench and builds momentum, » said IceCaps coach Keith McCambridge. « I thought after that, we got back to doing what we needed to, and that was managing pucks better and being a harder team to play against. » Eric ODell scored in the first period for St. Johns. Jesse Blacker, Max Friberg, and Josh Manson scored for the Admirals. Norfolk led 2-1 going into the final period, after Friberg and Blacker scored within 1:42 of each other in the first period. The Admirals, who have struggled offensively all season, had been outshot 14-6 up until that point. After a scoreless second period, Morrisey tied the game on a shot from the blue-line behind two screening teammates. « You give up a goal in the first minute of the third period with a 2-1 lead, thats not a recipe for success, » Norfolk coach Trent Yawney said. Chiarots goal, also scored from well outside, gave the IceCaps a 3-2 lead eight minutes later. « I was tryying to box out the player in front of me, and the shot went through my legs, » said Norfolk defenseman Manson. Max Jones Jersey. « I dont think (goaltender Brad Thiessen) saw it. » Manson replied 47 seconds later, scoring from the right faceoff circle over a sprawling Michael Hutchinson in the St. Johns net. The IceCaps Zach Redmond pushed Norfolks Matt Bailey into Hutchinson, knocking him down and clearing the way for Mansons shot. That tie was short lived, though. Samson scored from short range at 10:05 to give St. Johns the lead, which it nursed the rest of the way. Lowry scored into an empty net. « Ive always had good games here, » said Samson. « Now its playoff time, and its even better. » Hutchinson turned back 25 shots for his fourth win of the playoffs. Admirals goalie Thiessen made 26 saves. Thiessen, a playoff veteran with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for four seasons, but the backup since coming to Norfolk in November, was thrust into the starting role after the Anaheim Ducks recalled John Gibson to replace the injured Frederik Anderson. Gibson, who was 4-2 in the playoffs with a 1.45 goals-against average and a 0.955 saves percentage when he was called up, started for Anaheim against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. « That doesnt surprise me, » said McCambridge about Gibsons call-up. « He looks like hes the real deal. » Game 4 is Monday at Norfolk. 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 ‘ ‘ ‘

this week and got spotted by a fan because of his sha

MONTREAL – Jonathan Crompton went to see American Sniper at a local cinema this week and got spotted by a fan because of his shaggy long hair. Michal Rozsival Jersey .I was going to buy some popcorn, because you cant watch a movie without popcorn, and this lady comes up with her husband and kids and says I wish you all the best this year and I recognized you because of your hair, the Montreal Alouettes quarterback said Wednesday.So my hairs the most recognizable thing. I cant hide it.Crompton hopes to be more than just a wild hairdo as he enters his second season with the Alouettes after a see-saw 2014 campaign. He was cut in training camp by the Edmonton Eskimos in May, but then signed in mid-season just in time to help Montreal turn around what had been a disastrous campaign.The 27-year-old was not the most elegant pivot, completing 58.1 per cent of his passes for a so-so 85.2 quarterback rating. But he took over as starter on a 1-7 team and helped them finish a respectable 9-9.He also led Montreal over British Columbia in the East semifinal before losing a week later to Hamilton.This year, Crompton will have the benefit of a full training camp and go into the season for the first time as the incumbent starter.Were still a long ways from training camp and weve got a lot of work to do, said Crompton, in town for a week-long visit. We need to get ready for mini-camp in April.The organization has to go through the draft and all that. But were excited. Were looking forward to the opportunity ahead. It cant come fast enough.Quarterback was a nightmare position last season as the Alouettes tried to find a replacement for retired CFL all-time passing leader Anthony Calvillo.They thought their guy would be Troy Smith, but the 2006 Heisman Trophy winner struggled to complete passes and rarely ran the ball. The team also didnt win with Tanner Marsh or Alex Brink behind centre.Crompton was fourth on the depth chart when he signed a three-year contract in July.His arrival came just after general manager Jim Popp brought in two coaches, former quarterbacks Jeff Garcia and Turk Schonert, to help inexperienced offensive co-ordinator Ryan Dinwiddie.They liked what they saw in Crompton, who had eight appearances in 2013 as backup to Mike Reilly in Edmonton. He saw his first action as an Alouette on Aug. 22 when he relieved Brink in the second quarter of a 24-16 loss to Winnipeg. The Asheville, N.C., native looked sharp as he passed for 266 yards.The next week, he got his first CFL start in a win over Ottawa to start the Alouettes on an unlikely climb back to respectability. Including playoffs, the club went 9-2 with Crompton as the starter.Now he wants to keep it going.Im not going to change the way I prepare now that Im the starter, he said. I prepared the same even when I wasnt the starter.My mindset hasnt changed a bit. Right now, Im just enjoying the off-season with my family, working out and staying focused.He should also benefit from greater stability in the organization. Last off-season, the Alouettes took until late in the winter to name Tom Higgins as head coach get the rest of the staff in place. It took nearly half the season for the staff to be settled.Higgins is back, with defensive co-ordinator Noel Thorpe as assistant head coach, while Kavis Reed will handle special teams. Schonert was promoted to offensive co-ordinator as well as quarterbacks coach, filling in for Garcia who left the quarterbacks position at the end of the season. Dinwiddie remains as an offensive assistant coach along with Calvillo, who will make his coaching debut.Its different not having someone you worked with every day, but this is a business, said Crompton. I havent had back to back (position) coaches since high school.Its always a changing environment, so we try to keep it as constant as possible within ourselves. We wish Jeff the best. He helped me out tremendously, mentally and physically. But now my focus is on this year.Another change is that the long hair will soon be gone. He has already promised it to the Locks For Love campaign, which supplies wigs to kids with cancer.But hair has become his signature feature, so he has vowed to grow it back.Im not going to go completely bald, its just not my look, I guess you can say, he said. I want to have a decent length of hair. My thought process is that I want to grow it as long as I can so when I cut it, I have a little hanging out of the helmet. That would be ideal because I feel thats whats most recognizable about me now, my hair. Patrick Sharp Jersey . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell. Bobby Orr Jersey . At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014.WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — On a neutral-zone faceoff with about 30 seconds left and the score tied Saturday night, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins coach John Hynes tried to make a late personnel change. Referee Terry Koharski disallowed it, ruling that the change took too long. A checking line, centred by Zach Sill, stayed on the ice and the teams top scoring line remained on the bench. The Penguins owe Koharski a big thank you. Sill scored the game-winning goal with 15.8 seconds left in the third period to help the Penguins stave off elimination with a 4-2 victory over the St. Johns Ice Caps in Game 5 of the American Hockey Leagues Eastern Conference finals Saturday night. « Nobody in this room wanted to stop playing hockey yet, » Sill said. The IceCaps lead the series 3-2. Game 6 will be played Tuesday in St. Johns, N.L. Chuck Kobasew had a pair of goals for the Penguins while Spencer Machacek also scored. Will ONeill, meanwhile, had a goal and an assist for the second straight game for the IceCaps, who also got a single from Patrice Cormier. Michael Hutchinson made 30 saves for the IceCaps. Peter Mannino stopped 19 shots for the Penguins. With the score tied 2-2 in the final minute, Tom Kostopoulos threw a puck into the crease from the right-wing corner. Harry Zolnierczyk kept it alive at the near post and Sill took a shot that banked off the far post, off Hutchinson and in. « It went off the post and my heart sank foor a minute, then it went off his glove and into the net and that was exciting, » Sill said. Jordan Oesterle Jersey. Kobasew added an empty netter with 6.1 seconds left. He also tied the score 2-2 with 7:30 left in regulation, finishing off a cross-ice pass from Andrew Ebbett at the right faceoff dot at the end of a long offensive-zone shift for the Penguins. Kobasew, who missed the last two games, and Ebbett, who missed the last 11, were making their return from injury for the Penguins. « Its good to be back together. Weve played a lot together this season, » Kobasew said. « Just a good shift by all five guys out there. We were able to hem them in. » ONeill scored on a 5-on-3 power play to give St. Johns a 1-0 lead with 7:33 left in the first period, hitting the top-left corner of the net from the high slot. The Penguins outshot the IceCaps 8-3 in the first half of the second period and tied the score when Machacek scored on a 3-on-1 break off a scramble in the neutral zone at 3:49. St. Johns retook the lead on their second power-play goal of the game with 5:55 left in the period. Cormier tipped in an ONeill shot from the blue-line to make it 2-1. « Weve played with the lead before. Were pretty comfortable, » IceCaps winger Carl Klingberg said. « They came with a strong push. They had their season on the line. They had to go for it and they succeeded. Sometimes theyre going to do that. » 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 ‘ ‘ ‘

Denvers ownership and management

The Boston Bruins remain the top team in the TSN. Benjamin Stambouli Jersey .ca NHL Power Rankings, their third straight week ahead of the St. Louis Blues and San Jose Sharks. Holding that number one ranking doesnt mean that everything is flawless, as the Bruins did suffer back-to-back losses last week, but they rebounded with a solid win over Philadelphia Saturday afternoon and are healthier than most, if not all, of the top contenders. Surging into a playoff spot and getting Pavel Datsyuk back from injury helps the Detroit Red Wings move from 21 to 18, while the Carolina Hurricanes have been reasonably competitive, with one regulation loss in the past six, to move from 25 to 22. Heading the other way, the Los Angeles Kings fall from four to seven after one win in four games. The fall could be even more pronounced if defenceman Drew Doughty suffers ill-effects from a weekend upper-body injury. Without a regulation win in the past eight games, and with defenceman Mike Green sidelined, the Washington Capitals slide from 17 to 20, while the Winnipeg Jets are down from 20 to 24, mostly because of injuries to right winger Dustin Byfuglien and defenceman Zach Bogosian. The Toronto Maple Leafs continue their rankings slide, even after winning two of three last week. Losing goaltender Jonathan Bernier and left winger Joffrey Lupul for the season, contributes to the Leafs landing at a season-low 26, down from 23. The rest of the Canadian teams, coincidentally, all moved up one spot, the Montreal Canadiens are up to nine, the Calgary Flames, finishing strong, to 21, the Vancouver Canucks to 23, Ottawa Senators to 25 and Edmonton Oilers to 27. Yes, with one week remaining in the season, that leaves six Canadian teams ranked in the bottom 10.

Blatter also told reporters Saturday after meeting with Qatars emir that the decision to award the tournament to the desert nation is « not reversible. » There have been calls to move the tournament because of Qatars intense heat.1. TORONTO RAPTORS: Think about it – theyve been growing to this point over the past few seasons. They started the 2012-13 season with a 4-19 record and went 30-29 the rest of the way. From 4-19, the Raps have gone 94-57 since, in the past few seasons. They started last season 6-12 and then went 42-22 the rest of the way. From 6-12, the Raps have gone an amazing 64-28 over the past season plus. Theyre in the zone and have improved dramatically. As they enter tonights game in Chicago to start a brutal six game road stretch, the question needs to be asked—regardless of whether they go 0-6, 6-0 or 3-3 on this trip–are they currently at a point where the window of opportunity has opened for them in this years Eastern Conference race or are they a year or two away? I said it before and Ill say it again, in my opinion–I think theyre a fourth quality big man away from being in that discussion. Check out an article written by Christopher Reina for RealGM.com about the Raptors–he makes some interesting points worth considering. Quite a decision (a positive one) upcoming for GM Masai Ujiri about the next move to make (if any). The next six games (missing DeMar DeRozan–must take that into consideration) will give him better insight into really where his team is and where they need to go. Fun stuff — compared to so many other dreadful seasons that Raps fans have endured. Enjoy the ride. 2. RUDY GOBERT (Jazz): Love this young mans potential. Keep an eye on him. In December hes averaging 7.5 points per game and 7.7 rebounds per game while shooting 67 per cent. Hes averaging 2.2 blocks per game in that span ass well. Marquinhos Jersey. The best is yet to come. Im sure a bunch of contending teams will be sniffing around trying to pry this kid off Utahs hands for a pick or an expiring contract. Hes worth a look. The cat is out of the bag–kid can play. 3. DE MARRE CARROLL (Hawks): Turning into a nice three man for Atlanta. His three-point shot has improved greatly to 40 per and hes averaging 11.5 PPG and 5.3 RBG in a breakout year for him and his team. Love his energy and toughness. He guards and plays within his abilities. Love his approach. 4. DANILO GALINARI (Nuggets): This young man cant catch a break. Out 18 months with three left knee procedures and now hes out with a right knee injury. If Im Denvers ownership and management, Im legitimately concerned that hes never going to be the player he once was. Something has run amiss here and with constant breakdowns and inconsistent health theyre in a tough spot with what once was a very valuable asset. A shame. 5. DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS (Rockets): Dwight Howard goes down–no problem. This young man has grown by leaps and bounds in the month of December (15.6 PPG/6.4 RPG/53 per cent). They knew he was pretty good but hes better than they ever imagined and it took an injury to force feed him into the fire-cooker of pressure to see what he has and hes delivered for them. Has nice post skills and solid face up game. Fundamentally sound with a winning approach to the game. A true keeper for them. Out of crisis–something really good happened. Theyll be in the hunt all season in the West and another reason is this guy. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ‘ ‘ ‘

Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca. Hey Kerry, As always, I really enjoy your take on some of the questionable plays/calls/non-calls. I thought I would try and lighten it up a little with a request for you to share a truly funny or odd moment that you may have had while the players were lining up at the dot. There have been a couple of brief interchanges recently that made me think of this, the latest being at about 12:23 of the first in the Hawks/Kings game on Monday. With all the games you have done, there must be a few. Care to share any? Thanks again, Bajuhn Hey Bujuhn, The camera often catches intense debates between players or coaches and the officials but misses the lighter, humorous side that helps to bring the temperature down and build healthy professional working relationships. I learned early in my career that the use of humor, when appropriate (especially self-deprecating), had its place on the ice. Early in my very first season as a referee, I had a game where the home team was getting soundly trounced and their frustration was continuously being directed at me. I responded with multiple misconduct penalties and, toward the end of the game, players were sitting three deep in the penalty box. Following another goal that took the score in double digits, the coach sent his captain over to have a word with me. Very politely the captain asked, « Mr. Referee, my coach wants to know if he can get a penalty for thinking? » I said, « Probably not if he doesnt think out loud. » The captain then said, « In that case, my coach thinks you are a F-ing A-hole! » I not only found the coaches comment to be creative but very funny and I began to laugh. The stern look on the face of the coach changed to a grin and then he began to laugh as well. The humor we shared in that moment, albeit at my expense, broke the ice and taught me a valuable lesson that would serve me throughout my career. In the early 1980s, I was the first referee to wear a wireless microphone during a game at MSG between the Minnesota North Stars and the Rangers. The microphone was left open throughout the entire game so it brought the television audience directly to the action on the ice with uncensored comments. We had several dust-ups throughout the game where my mic caught all the pleasantries that were being exchanged between players. Willi Plett tried to club Don Maloney of the Rangers in once such scrum and caught me on the bridge of my nose with his glove. After Plett served his penalty, he approached me at a stoppage of play and asked, « Is this your worst game of the season? » I shot back with a smile, « No, theyre all about this caliber. LaRoy Reynolds Jersey.  » Plett looked dumbfounded and shook his head while skating away. At times, I tried to council rookie officials not to take themselves so seriously in an effort to solicit player cooperation and earn respect. In 1988, my friend and colleague, linesman Pierre Champoux signed an NHL contract. Pierre quickly developed into an excellent linesman but in the beginning of his career, he did not have a very good command of the English language to put it mildly. We left training camp together that September and headed out West to work exhibition games and to work on Pierres English language skills. One of our early assignments was in Los Angeles and the rookie linesman wanted to establish his full control in the faceoff circle. Bernie Nicholls entered Pierres domain late in the first period to take the draw. In what Nicholls correctly perceived as an aggressive tone and animated gesture, the linesman commanded Nichols with, « You, put your stick down! » Bernie straightened up, cussed at Champoux by questioning who the « F » the rookie thought he was talking to? Nicholls was immediately ejected from the faceoff with a quick jerk of the linesmans thumb followed by, « You, out! »  I skated over and told Nicholls to relax as a replacement entered the faceoff circle. Between periods, I conveyed the importance of quickly developing a good working relationship with all the players to gain respect and solicit their cooperation. I acted out a role-play to demonstrate the linesmans command to Nicholls that wasnt well received; followed by a polite approach I always used by requesting the centres to « please put your sticks down. » It was obvious to Pierre which method would be better received by a player in the future. I finished by commenting if Pierre still received a hostile comment from a player following his polite request to follow with a lighter approach by saying, « Why are you so grumpy, did someone piss on your cornflakes this morning? » Pierre said I like dat and he couldnt wait to get on the ice to try his new techniques in the faceoff circle; especially the cornflakes line as it turned out. As the centres arrived for the faceoff, Pierre still had a bit of an edge to his tone when he commanded, « You, put your stick down please. » Getting some resistance from the player, my rookie student responded immediately with, « Put your stick down or I will piss on your corn-flake! » Something got lost in the translation. Champoux quickly developed a command of the English language and continues to be recognized by the players as a highly respected linesman in the NHL. Pierre also enjoys his bowl of cornflakes in the morning with low-fat milk. 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 ‘ ‘ ‘

more of those to keep up with the efficient Russell

Marcus Mariota lost some ground last week with his bye; he may be entirely out of the Heisman Race after this week. Rigoberto Sanchez Jersey . After Mariota was pushed around by Stanford on Thursday, finishing 20/34 with 250 yards and two touchdowns in Oregons Title hope-crushing defeat, hes going to need a poor performance or two from the remaining frontrunners to have a shot at the most coveted individual trophy in college sports. The remaining frontrunners of course being Johnny Manziel and Jameis Winston. While there is some considerable Heisman momentum in Winstons corner through 11 weeks, TSN.ca is sticking with Manziel as the lead dog. Manziel put up another monster performance in accounting for at least five touchdowns for the 10th time in his relatively short college career. The defending Heisman winners stat line cant be touched by any of the other contenders with just four weeks left until conference championships. He has 39 combined scores on the year, eight short of his 47 from last year. What keeps Winston in the race is Texas A&Ms two losses on the season, Manziels three interceptions against Mississippi State this week, and of course, Oregons loss putting Florida State in pole position to take on Alabama in the BCS National Championship. Two days after the Ducks saw their National Title hopes fade, Winston and the now second-ranked Florida State cruised by Wake Forest with 159 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. The Seminoles have three bird matchups to round out the regular season with Syracuse, Idaho, and a now very mediocre-looking Florida squad on rivalry weekend; a great stretch for Winston to catch up to Manziel in the stat lines. Someone else to keep your eye on is Baylor QB Bryce Petty. Lache Seastrunk had his name known in this column earlier this year but his teammate has passed him in the Heisman race of late. The Bears have continued to impress me all season and while Petty is still a fringe candidate through 11 weeks, what makes him a player to watch is Baylors remaining schedule. The fifth-ranked Bears still have huge games against Oklahoma State and Texas to decide the Big 12. If Petty continues to look good and Baylor finishes the year undefeated, thats two potential statement games that could go a long way come Heisman voting time. To go from Robert Griffin to Bryce Petty, its a good time to be a Baylor Bears fan. Jacoby Brissett Jersey . The R&A announced Monday that golfs oldest championship will return to Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland for the first time since Max Faulkner won in 1951. Anthony Castonzo Jersey . — New York Yankees centre fielder Jacoby Ellsbury was sent for an MRI Thursday of his ailing right calf, which was negative.EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — All those records, all for naught. Peyton Manning couldnt cap the greatest season any NFL quarterback ever had or secure his legacy as the best QB in history because his Denver Broncos came down with a case of the yips Sunday night. They lost to Seattle in the Super Bowl 43-8 by falling behind right from the start and never recovering. The bumbling Broncos trailed before Manning ever got his hands on the ball because Manny Ramirezs bad snap went for a safety 12 seconds into the game. « It was a crazy start, » Manning said, « not the way you expect to start the game. » It only got worse for the leagues most prolific point producers who scored 606 of em in the regular season, then dominated the AFC in the playoffs but mustered only Demaryius Thomas 14-yard touchdown catch on the final play of the third quarter at MetLife Stadium. « We couldnt get it to swing, man, » left tackle Chris Clark said. « We tried, but they just played better than we did today. It didnt shift. We didnt play Broncos football today. When you got a good thing going, you want to finish it off and we didnt do that today. » Dominated in every way, the Broncos (15-4) trudged through the tunnel trailing 22-0 at halftime, then watched Percy Harvin return the second-half kickoff for a TD. « Youve got to play well in this game to win it, » said Broncos boss John Elway, who lost Super Bowls by scores of 39-20, 42-10 and 55-10 during his Hall of Fame playing career before winning his last two. Elway returned to rescue his beloved Broncos in 2011 after the franchise foundered and his biggest coup was luring Manning to Denver. Over his two seasons in Colorado, Manning engineered the greatest comeback in NFL history: recovering from neck fusion surgery that weakened his throwing arm to win his fifth MVP award this season when he set records by throwing for 55 TDs and 5,447 yards. But he couldnt match that with the greatest comeeback in Super Bowl history after falling behind 36-0. Malik Hooker Jersey. « I will tell you this: its hard to get things turned around against a great defence like that, » Elway said. « They are a great defence. So, thats why you cant afford to lose the momentum because to try to flip it on a great defence is always hard. » This was easily Mannings worst day since trading the blue and white horseshoe of the Indianapolis Colts for the orange-mane mustang of Denver. He was sacked for the first time in the playoffs, threw two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown, lost a fumble and turned it over on downs. The bumbling Broncos finally found the end zone when Thomas made a leaping, twisting grab of Mannings 14-yard pass — his 100th TD toss for Denver. But he needed a lot more of those to keep up with the efficient Russell Wilson, who didnt commit any turnovers and kept plays alive with his legs and pinpoint passes. « They outplayed us in every facet, » tight end Jacob Tamme said. Thomas caught 13 passes for 118 yards but he also had a fumble as Denver was driving in the third quarter. Denver was missing five defensive starters who are on IR that might have made this a fairer fight — Von Miller, Rahim Moore, Kevin Vickerson, Derek Wolfe and Chris Harris Jr. « We just didnt play like were capable of, » Elway said. « Its disappointing. But we had a great year. And hopefully well learn from this. But it started tough and we just couldnt seem to get it going. « Its one of those nights. We had a tremendous year and well hopefully learn from this and were going to go at it again next year. » Terrance Knighton, who helped hold Marshawn Lynch to 2.6 yards a carry, was already looking forward to that. « Itll be the 2014 season before you know it, » he said. « Itll sting for a little bit tonight and maybe for a few more days but well have to bounce back. » 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 ‘ ‘ ‘
