CARDIFF, Wales -- Orlando Cruz of Puerto Rico will have to wait to become the first openly gay boxer to win a world title after being stopped in the eighth round by WBO lightweight champion Terry Flanagan on Saturday. Justin Jackson Kings Jersey .Flanagan, a British fighter, improved his professional record to 32-0 with a successful fourth defense of the belt by knocking Cruz to the canvas twice in the same round in Cardiff.Referee Steve Gray called a halt to proceedings after a powerful right hand from Flanagan.This was the 35-year-old Cruzs 10th bout since declaring his homosexuality in public in 2012, but it was his first in this weight class. His record dropped to 25-5-1. Nemanja Bjelica Kings Jersey . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006.

According to a report from the Winnipeg Free Press, the Bombers will name Acting GM Kyle Walters to the post full time. NEW YORK -- The New York Jets signed quarterback Geno Smith, their second-round draft pick, on Monday to a four-year contract that is worth about $5 million. Smith, drafted 39th overall after an unexpected slide out of the first round in April, is competing with incumbent Mark Sanchez for the starting quarterback job. The signing was announced by the team, which still has its two first-round picks -- cornerback Dee Milliner and defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson -- unsigned. The Jets veteran players report for training camp in Cortland, N.Y., on Thursday, but rookies were reporting Monday at the teams facility in Florham Park, N.J. Smith and Sanchez are competing in what has been called by team officials an "open competition," and neither noticeably outperformed the other in minicamp last month. But both appear to be confident about their chances. Sanchez, at his recent annual "Jets West" camp in Southern California, said he "absolutely" expects to remain the Jets starting quarterback. Meanwhile, Smith -- who raised some eyebrows when he chose to not attend Sanchezs camp but said the quarterbacks are "cool" -- told the Charleston Gazette over the weekend that feels "like I have a great shot" at winning the job. The competition could go deep into camp as both quarterbacks try to show they have picked up and mastered offensive co-ordinator Marty Mornhinwegs West Coast-style system. It has been a somewhat tumultuous off-season for Smith, who set a slew of records at West Virginia and establiished himself as one of college footballs most exciting players. Marvin Bagley Jersey. He was projected as a possible top-10 pick in the draft, but questions by some about his overall abilities and commitment caused him to slide in the draft. Smith was at the draft site at Radio City Music Hall, but went unselected on the first day and appeared frustrated and embarrassed at being passed over. The Jets, wanting competition for Sanchez, jumped at the chance to bring in Smith on the drafts second day. Smith fired his original agents shortly after the draft, and signed with hip-hop artist Jay-Zs new Roc Nation Sports to represent him. The decision prompted the NFL Players Association to look into Jay-Zs role in getting Smith to sign with his agency, and if the leagues "runner rule" was violated. Agents not certified by the NFLPA cant recruit players to sign with certified agents; Smiths representative Kimberly Miale is certified. Smith later caused some confusion when he responded with a "no comment" when asked if he would attend Sanchezs camp. He later explained he hadnt heard of "Jets West" and didnt understand what he was being asked about. Sanchez said everyone is always invited, but Smith chose to work out on his own in Florida. While it appeared to be a possible snub to Sanchez, both insisted said there are "no hard feelings" between the two. Smith threw for 11,662 yards -- including back-to-back 4,000-yard seasons -- with 98 touchdowns and only 21 interceptions in four years at West Virginia. ' ' ' 
NEW YORK -- Todd Bowles isnt exactly in hurry-up mode when it comes to deciding on his starting quarterback. Derek Holland Cubs Jersey .Ryan Fitzpatrick or Bryce Petty? Well, the New York Jets coach will make the call on wholl be under center against New England on Nov. 27 when the team returns from its bye-week break next Monday.We havent gotten there yet, Bowles said during a conference call Monday. Weve got a week to go for that. Were still evaluating everybody.Petty made his first NFL start Sunday in place of Fitzpatrick, who is recovering from a sprained knee. The second-year quarterback was 19 of 32 for 163 yards with a touchdown, but also tossed an interception with just under two minutes left in the Jets 9-6 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.That dropped New York to 3-7, with its playoff hopes now barely a flicker. Still, Bowles is sticking with his philosophy of playing the quarterback that gives the Jets the best chance to win. That means Bowles isnt necessarily looking to give Petty extended playing time just to see if he could be the quarterback of the future.At this point, not right now, Bowles said. I mean, he played OK (Sunday), but hes still got a lot of things to learn. You dont learn unless you play, but at the same time, were still trying to win games, too. So, well make that decision as the week goes forward.Bowles said the players will practice Tuesday and then have the rest of the week off. The coaching staff will have meetings Wednesday and then take off until next Monday. As for the quarterback decision, Bowles will talk to his staff and then give both general manager Mike Maccagnan and owner Woody Johnson a heads up on where the situation stands.And, the player he chooses might not necessarily hold the job from here on out.Going forward, it all depends on the play and the health and everything else of everybody, Bowles said. So, it could change, but it could stay the same, as well.Bowles is in a difficult situation, knowing the Jets are now simply playing out the season and Fitzpatrick is unlikely to be back next year. Geno Smith, out for the year with a knee injury, is scheduled to become a free agent. That leaves just Petty and rookie Christian Hackenberg as the quarterbacks who likely will remain on the roster next offseason. And the coach said Hackenberg, a second-rounder from Penn State, is not in the top two right now when it comes to the quarterback situation.But Bowles also has to tread lightly, realizing that looking toward the future at this point sends a message to his players that this season is already a wash.With the evaluation process, there comes a point in the future of an organization, toward the end of the season, where you try to see things if they go right here and there, Bowles said. But its always a tough decision one way or the other.Fitzpatrick sprained his left knee at Miami on Nov. 6 and was limited in practice all week while splitting first-team snaps with Petty. Bowles said it would be a game-time decision, but then decided Saturday night that Petty would start against the Rams.He was getting better, but he wasnt well enough on Saturday, in my mind, to even try to do it Sunday, Bowles said.Petty provided an early spark, complete with a standing ovation from the MetLife Stadium crowd as he took the field. He drove the Jets 99 yards on their second possession, finishing with his first NFL TD pass with a little razzle-dazzle on a toss to Brandon Marshall, who flipped it backward to Bilal Powell for a 4-yard score.But New Yorks offense was mostly quiet after that and the positive buzz was silenced by the time Petty was picked off by Alec Ogletree.The Jets also missed out on what appeared would be an easy touchdown just before halftime when Petty couldnt connect with a wide-open Robby Anderson. Bowles said Petty overthrew the ball slightly, but Anderson also slowed a bit on his route.He was calm and he was poised when he was out there, Bowles said of Petty. He threw the deep ball well. He understood his reads. He went where it was supposed to go. He hurried up some things and thats going to happen when a first-time starter comes out there. He hurried some throws and he missed a couple of reads as well.But, for the most part, other than the one turnover, he played OK.Game notes The Jets game against the Patriots was originally scheduled for Sunday Night Football, but was flexed out of the slot and moved to a 4:25 p.m. game and replaced by Kansas City at Denver. ... TE Kellen Davis (elbow) cleared waivers and was added to the Jets injured reserve list. ...

Today, we look back at Boston Strong - a citys recovery from tragedy. By scoring 8-1 and 5-1 wins over the Milwaukee Brewers in their last two games before the All-Star break, the St. Louis Cardinals gained some much-needed confidence, according to manager Mike Matheny.We won the series and (now) we can just build off that, he said.St. Louis will try to construct more success Friday night when the Miami Marlins visit to start a three-game series matching playoff contenders.At 47-41, Miami enters the seasons unofficial second half tied with the New York Mets for the National Leagues second wild-card spot, six games behind the first-place Washington Nationals in the NL East with two games in hand.The Cardinals (46-42) are a game back of the Marlins and Mets and seven games back of the first-place Chicago Cubs in the NL Central. At stake for St. Louis in the seasons homestretch: Extending their playoff streak to five straight years.To do that, the Cardinals will have to make Busch Stadium a homefield advantage again. After going 55-26 at home last year, when they became baseballs first 100-win team since 2011, St. Louis went a miserable 19-26 before the break, including 4-5 on a nine-game homestand before winning two of three in Milwaukee.This series opener kicks off a 10-game homestand for the Cardinals, which also entertain the San Diego Padres for four games and the Los Angeles Dodgers next weekend for three.The good news for St. Louis is that help is on the way. Their bloated disabled list is about to shrink in membership as Kevin Siegrist (mono) could be available as soon as Saturday night.Whats more, Trevor Rosenthal (hamstring) and Matt Holliday (ankle) should be available Friday night, and it might not be much longer before 1B/OF Brandon Moss (ankle) returns from a stint on the 15-day disabled list. Dennis Eckersley Jersey. You cant allow yourself to go down that road of feeling sorry for yourself or saying too much about it, Matheny said about the injuries. You just have to keep playing. We have very good players who can jump in and make it happen.About the only aspect of the Cardinals that hasnt suffered from injuries is the starting rotation. That includes lefty Jaime Garcia (6-6, 4.01), who will make the start Friday night, perhaps based on his two dominant wins last year over the Marlins.This Miami team might be a bit tougher than the one he owned last summer. The Marlins boast five .300 hitters, more than any team in baseball, none of them named Giancarlo Stanton.However, Stanton bumped his average up 40 points in the last 3 ? weeks before the break, then went out to San Diego and belted a record 61 homers in winning the Home Run Derby.Miami will counter Garcia with a lefty of its own, Wei-Yin Chen (5-3, 4.83), whos coming off a 5-2 win July 5 at the Mets. Chen hasnt faced St. Louis in his career.The Marlins havent made the playoffs since 2003, when they won the World Series. Ace pitcher Jose Fernandez, who wont pitch in this series after working 1 1/3 innings in the All-Star Game, says the team is excited about being in contention.I believe in this team and how its playing, he said. Were good enough to go really far this year. Hopefully, we can get a lot better in the second half. ' ' '

Three came down to the fourth quarter while quarterbacks continued to shine in all four games; so important to the overall quality of the game. DeAndre Levy spent October trying to raise funds and increase knowledge for domestic violence awareness month.The Detroit Lions linebacker ended up raising more than $30,000 for the Enough SAID (Enough Sexual Assault in Detroit) program trying to test more than 11,000 neglected rape kits and then investigate the findings.Domestic violence awareness has been an issue Levy has undertaken during the past year both in essays and speaking out publicly to try to raise awareness. The attention he has put on the issue -- either from his voice or the T-shirt campaign with Our Issue written on the shirt -- ended up helping.Theres a lot of effects to it, and this is one of those things where we have to create a culture where were supportive, men, women and children who decide to report, stand up and say something, they do the right thing, Levy told ESPN. Their evidence is sitting in a warehouse for 20 years or whatever. ... Its just unbelievable.Thats something that you really wouldnt believe to be true. I reached out to them earlier this year and this came about later. I saw a lot of the work that they were doing and it just made sense to me.Peg Tallet, the chief community engagement officer for the Michigan Womens Foundation, which runs Enough SAID, told ESPN it costs $490 to test a neglected rape kit. Fake Jerseys. Tallet said the organization has tested approximately 10,900 of the 11,341 kits that were discovered in the warehouse when the project began five years ago.So Tallet said the money Levy raised and donated will either finish off the testing of the kits -- or, if the organization finds they have enough funds for that, itll fund an investigator for potentially a year. Once the kits are tested, the evidence is there, but what the kits discovered still needs to be investigated. Tallet said there are 263 cases currently being investigated and more than 1,100 ready to be investigated.If we can fund an investigator for a year, Tallet said. That could save 200 to 400 women or children from being left out of justice.Levy initially made a donation on his own in the spring through the Enough SAID website. He then started speaking with the organization, trying to find out what else he could do to help and eventually came up with the T-shirt campaign. ' ' ' 
ALBANY, N. Gary Trent Jr. Jersey .Y. -- Rayshan Clark scored on a 2-yard fumble return and Ethan Starks kicked two field goals, including a 50-yarder, and Albany defeated Stony Brook on Saturday to capture the Golden Apple Trophy in the Empire Classic.Clark, who also intercepted two passes, had the difference-making touchdown with 4:46 left in the third quarter. Quarterback Jack Cassidy fumbled the snap one play after Jon Martins 63-yard punt pinned the Seawolves on their 5 and Clark scooped up the loose ball and stepped into the end zone.Starks, a redshirt freshman, kicked his career-best field goal for the Great Danes (7-4, 4-4 Colonial) late in the first half to produce a 3-3 tie.Przemyslaw Popek had his second short field goal for the Seawolves (5-6, 4-4) with 3:08 left but the Great Danes recovered the onside kick.

PAUL, Minn. If you dropped UCLAs squad at a random pickup game on a Saturday, TJ Leaf might get picked last.He doesnt look like a baller. And he doesnt rise above the rim like some of his teammates or steer college basketballs new Showtime act on fast breaks. Thats Lonzo Balls job.Leafs only sin is playing efficient, productive basketball without the flair others on the UCLA roster boast.And thats why the potential lottery pick is also one of the games most overlooked players.Ball, arguably the front-runner for the Wooden Award, turns every player on the court into Ethan Hawke in Training Day, an overshadowed best supporting actor. Ball has a presence now. Hell always speak on the postgame dais. Win or lose, observers will scrutinize his statistics. College basketball fans want to know what hes thinking or plotting.Hes not a player. Hes the player right now.So within the games annals, Leafs contributions might get lost if this UCLA revival continues. He is, however, a critical element in Steve Alfords operation.He has made 48.8 percent of his jump shots, per hoop-math.com. The Bruins have made 45.6 percent of their shots inside the arc with Leaf on the floor, compared with 37.5 percent when hes on the bench, according to hooplens.com. Hes ranked 41st with a 134.2 offensive rating on KenPom.com. And Leaf was two assists shy of a triple-double in a win over UC Santa Barbara (25 points, 10 rebounds, 8 assists) last week, a good day for the freshman.Hes certainly on the NBAs radar.Hes skilled, knows how to play and has a feel for the game, said one NBA scout. Plays with urgency. Limited athletic ability but good enough to rebound and finish. ... His stock is on the rise because of his overall production.Added another NBA scout: I think hes good. Should be a solid NBA player.With 16 minutes, 44 seconds to play in his teams win over Ohio State on Saturday, Leaf stood on the left block, called for the ball, caught the pass, turned and scored on a hook shot in a seamless sequence straight from the Kevin McHale handbook. Nothing fancy about it.But it was an effective move.The?Lonzo Ball shadow, however, is wide. And if the most gifted collegiate passer since Chris Paul at Wake Forest continues to evolve, well hear even more about Ball and maybe less about his peers.But dont forget about Leaf.Pay attention to these overlooked players, too.Charlie Moore, California Golden Bears: Ranked 61st in the 2016 class by ESPN.com, the Chicagoan is averaging 17.1 PPG and shooting 80 percent from the free throw line and 45 percent from the 3-point line. Hes a tough defender (1.5 steals per game) who leads Cuonzo Martins most impressive defense at Cal (No. 8 in KenPom.coms adjusted defensive efficiency ratings). He picked off a pass and finished a smooth fast break in the first half of his teams win over Cal Poly on Saturday. Early in the second, Moore trailed on a fast break, found space in the corner where Grant Mullins found him for the 3-pointer. Hes versatile, and hes evolving. Hes a young talent, but hes also a building block for a program that will likely lose Ivan Rabb after this season. Hes also a young leader of a team that leaned on his production as Rabb and Jabari Bird dealt with injuries earlier this season.Ethan Happ, Wisconsin Badgers: Wisconsin, Purdue and Indiana seem destined for a three-way fight in the Big Ten race, which will start soon. To win the conference title, Greg Gard will need Bronson Koenig, Nigel Hayes and Happ to battle every night. He has maintained the momentum he accrued with his 24-point, 13-rebound effort in his teams win over Syracuse in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The 6-foot-10 sophomore keeps it simple. He uses his size and underrated strength to muscle into the post and get easy buckets. Nearly 90 percent of Happs shots have been attempted at the rim, per hoop-math.com. He has made 72.2 percent of them.Justin Patton, Creighton Bluejays: Greg McDermott has a team with the talent to reach heights that the squads his son Doug once led did not achieve. Marcus Foster anchors one of the nations stroongest backcourts. Anfernee Simons Jersey. He has veterans around him. Patton is 7 feet tall, but hes agile and fluid, which allows his guards to run a lot of pick-and-roll action with the big man and create matchup problems for any team that overcommits, which Oral Roberts did multiple times in its recent loss to Creighton. Patton has made 79.7 percent of his shots inside the arc, the fifth-best mark in America. Lineups that feature Patton allow just .91 points per possession on defense. Creighton has better athletes and more refined talents. By seasons end, however, Patton could mature into the most significant player on the Bluejays roster.Jordan Mathews, Gonzaga Bulldogs: Mathews deserved a spot on this list last season when he played next to Jaylen Brown, Ivan Rabb and Tyrone Wallace at Cal. Now, hes assisting a Gonzaga squad with as much potential as any team Mark Few has assembled in recent years. Hes not putting up SportsCenter-worthy numbers, but hes avoiding the mistakes and errors that could hurt his team. Yes, he has made just 25 percent of his shots inside the arc, but he has connected on 86 percent of his free throws and 39.7 percent of his 3-pointers. He has recorded nine assists and committed just two turnovers in the past five games. Hes the perfect veteran for this West Coast Conference powerhouse.Jordan McLaughlin, USC Trojans: After Andy Enfield led USC to the 2016 NCAA tournament, the schools first berth since 2011, everything seemed to crumble. Julian Jacobs and Nikola Jovanovic turned pro. Four other players transferred. But Enfield kept McLaughlin, who has improved from last season in every category but 3-point shooting (numbers through Sunday night), including offensive rating (125.4 on KenPom.com), assist rate (26.1 percent), free throws (77 percent) and shots inside the arc (66 percent). Enfield asked McLaughlin to lead after this offseasons turmoil. He has answered that call and helped a USC team that should enter Pac-12 play undefeated.Yante Maten, Georgia Bulldogs: The biggest issue right now for Matens hype is he plays for a Georgia squad that looks like a team that will again struggle to reach the NCAA tournament. Still, the 6-8 forward dropped 30 points and snatched 13 rebounds against Kansas. He had 24 points and four blocks against Marquette. According to hooplens.com, lineups that feature Maten average 1.12 points per possession. When hes off the floor, Georgia records just 0.96 PPP. Thats a dramatic decline that showcases Matens importance.Historic game organized by Frank Martin and Orlando Antigua for second consecutive seasonMartin and Antigua have faced challenges this season. Antigua leads a South Florida squad thats 5-4 and recently parted with the coachs brother and assistant after an NCAA investigation surrounding allegations of academic fraud. Martins South Carolina squad hasnt had the same fire since the coach suspended star Sindarius Thornwell, who was arrested in May.But their troubles were secondary to the significance of their matchup in Orlando, Florida, on Saturday. The game featured two of Division Is three Hispanic-American coaches (Miamis Jim Larranaga is the third). Both coaches have worked hard to enhance the pipeline and help other Hispanic coaches emerge and find a path in college basketball.And Saturdays game, much like last seasons matchup, is a pivotal component of that effort.20th anniversary of a perfect season at the free throw lineDuring the 1996-97 season, Division II star Paul Cluxton established an NCAA mark that might last forever. The Northern Kentucky standout made all 94 of his free throw attempts, an NCAA record at all levels. How hard is that? Oklahoma States Phil Forte made 42 of his first 43 free throws this season. Appalachian States Donald Sims missed just eight of his 170 free throw attempts during the 2009-10 season. But perfection? Seems impossible. Cluxton, however, shattered that idea two decades ago.

Nikki Izzo-Brown is the only womens soccer coach West Virginia has ever hired. Baltimore Orioles Gear . After 21 seasons, shes guiding the Mountaineers to the womens College Cup for the first time.Led by a group of Canadians, including a pair of Olympians and a freshman goalkeeper with a penchant for shutouts, West Virginia (22-1-2) takes a 16-game unbeaten streak into Fridays semifinals against North Carolina (17-3-4) in San Jose, California. Southern Cal (17-4-2) meets Georgetown (20-2-3) in the other semifinal.Izzo-Brown was hired for West Virginias varsity debut in 1996 and has taken the Mountaineers to the NCAA tournament in 17 straight seasons. The schools best previous showing was making it twice to the quarterfinals, including last season.West Virginia was ranked No. 1 by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America over the final five weeks of the regular season.Until were No. 1 at the end of the year do I even reflect on the numbers, Izzo-Brown said.So far, theyve been strong.The Mountaineers have 17 shutouts and allowed just nine goals all season, including two in one game.Freshman goalkeeper Rylee Foster, just back from the FIFA Under-20 Womens World Cup where she competed for Canada in Papau, New Guinea, earned a 1-0 win over Duke in the quarterfinals last week to improve to 13-1-1.Foster is among seven Canadians on West Virginias roster.That includes senior defender Kadeisha Buchanan and midfielder Ashley Lawrence. The duo who first became teammates at age 9 earned bronze medals at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. Buchanan is a four-time Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year.Canada makes sense, Izzo-Brown said. Its five-and-a-half hours away. Theres great soccer, and I had a friend up there that I knew was developing the kids the right way. Once you get one and theyre extremely happy, its pretty incredible how many more you get and how word travels fast. So Ive been very fortunate that the kids Ive got from Canada just absolutely love West Virginia and everything about it.The presence of Buchanan and Lawrence prompted Foster to come, too, although it took some coaxing from her father. She initially wanted to play for her home countrys national team.Finally my dad was like, `youre pushing off a powerhouse team, you cant do this, Foster said. I think you should call the coach.Her first phone conversation with Izzo-Brown put any hesitation to rest.Foster and Buchanan said Izzo-Brown is like a second mother to them. But her tenacity over the years to elevate the program is what stands out. The school has overhauled its soccer complex, replaced the grass field and built a separate womens soccer training field and practice facility.You got to understand one thing, as a coach you always want more, Izzo-Brown said. So, Im always fighting for more, if Florida State has something or UCLA has something. Thats just been something that probably every coach will tell you. They want to have better facilities. They want to have better opportunities. Nothing was ever handed to me. So if Im not fundraising, you know, Im fighting.---Associated Press freelancer Matthew Thornsbury in Morgantown, W.Va., contributed to this report. Baltimore Orioles Store .

My memories of Max Walker go back to my days as a teenager in Year 11, when I was producing a documentary on the history of the MCG for a school media studies assignment.I hand-wrote a letter to Max via GTV-9 Publicity, asking whether he would be willing to be interviewed by me (using the schools elaborate Super VHS video camera!) about his experiences at the ground as a Test cricketer and VFL footballer. For me it was shooting for the moon, as he was well and truly at the peak of his TV fame in those days and I didnt hold out much hope that anything would come from it.Only a day or two had passed when the home phone rang in the kitchen one night while my brother and I were washing up. On the other end of the phone was that distinctive and unmissable voice. Hello Jonathan? he asked. Yes, I replied, suddenly knowing full well who it was. Yeees, its Max Walker mate, I got your letter. How are ya?My heart skipped a beat and then all I can remember is trying to shoo the family away as they tried to listen in to the conversation I was having with this national icon! Then again his voice was so strong that they could have been standing in the next suburb and still heard him. None of us could believe it, least of all me.Soon enough, though, it was down to business as the big Wide World of Sports host went on to ask me about the assignment and politely and very encouragingly told me that hed be happy to be involved. Not only that, but he would meet me at the G and could even pull a few strings to get us access to the ground for the shoot. This was too good to be true!But it was ttrue. Orioles Jerseys 2019. . Dressed immaculately in a suit and tie he met me and two school mates one afternoon. He introduced himself as Max Henry Norman Walker then proceeded to help frame the interview shoot, showing us school kids the angles Channel Nine used to help capture his good side. He chuckled after that, saying that no man with umpteen broken noses could possibly have a good side!As the camera rolled, that enormous smile broke out along with an endless supply of anecdotes and gags. He proceeded to fill up a couple of tapes talking about the ground and his sporting memories at the MCG from playing under the legendary Norm Smith to the Centenary Test.He was insightful, funny and supportive and for that reason I will never forget that afternoon or his generosity. He even signed my school diary with the words, Well bowled Jono. Hope you get a good mark. Thanks to Max thats exactly what happened.In later years I crossed paths with him when I became involved with cricket through work. Each time I saw him I thanked him for that afternoon. He laughed by saying that he was happy to be a part of it, but was still waiting for his appearance fee, which was accumulating interest.I will always think fondly of the great Max Walker. Not for the fact that he was a gun Australian Test cricketer, a ruckman for my beloved Melbourne Football Club, or a loveable TV personality, but for that fact that he was a wonderful human with a great heart. I will miss him. ' ' '

MIAMI -- Tino Martinez resigned as the Miami Marlins hitting coach hours after complaints by players that he verbally abused them became public. China Jerseys Stitched . In one instance, Martinez acknowledged he angrily grabbed a player. Martinez was in his first year as a professional coach this year. He sat in the dugout during Sundays 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates, then met with Marlins officials and resigned. "I want to apologize to the Marlins organization for my behaviour," Martinez said. "I have made some comments to certain players at certain times that I thought was more constructive criticism. Obviously, they didnt feel that way, and it kind of backfired on me." Martinez said he once touched a player in anger, grabbing rookie Derek Dietrich by the jersey in the batting cage early this season. Dietrich, demoted last Monday to Double-A Jacksonville, was among the players to complain. Martinez said he offered to resign earlier, but team owner Jeffrey Loria wanted him to stay on the job. When the complaints by players became public in a story Sunday by the Miami Herald, Martinez became certain he should resign. "It has been building for a few days," he said. "I didnt know this was going to come out publicly. When this came out, I thought it was the right thing to do." Marlins minor league field co-ordinator John Pierson will become interim hitting coach. First-year manager Mike Redmond said everyone in the organization was disappointed with the outcome of Martinez brief tenure. "Coachings tough," Redmond said. "Going from a player to a coach is hard, and part of the grind is learning how to deal with different situations with different players and different personalities. All that stuff is a challenge. Some people can do it, and some people cant." The young Marlins rank last in the majors in runs, home runs, batting and slugging, and the 45-year-old Martinez said he became frustrated as players struggled. "I just thought with some young players you needed to be a little firmer and try to get them on the right track," he said. "I probably used some four-letter words. I thought I was doing the right thing. Obviously, I wasnt." Martinez batted .271 with 339 home runs, and he was a four-time World Series champion with the New York Yankees. He had a three-year contract with the Marlins but said because he resigned, hell receive no buyout. He declined to speculate on whether hell coach again. "I dont know long term how its going to affect me," he said. "Right now Im disappointed in myself. Im embarrassed. Right now Im not worried about the future. I just want to make sure my family is OK." China Jerseys Cheap .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. Fake China Jerseys .

Standing 7-feet tall and weighing 280 pounds, Andre Drummond is one of the most physically imposing big men in the NBA. NFL Jerseys China .Put him in a gym with 400 Special Olympics athletes, and the Detroit Pistons All-Star center turns into a little kid again.Drummond, 23, was named as the newest Special Olympics ambassador on Thursday, and he celebrated his new role by hosting a pep rally and basketball clinic in Detroit.Its a feeling you dont forget. Its a genuine look and genuine excitement, Drummond said with a chuckle in a telephone interview. They dont see me as just a basketball player, they see me for who I am and the amount of time and effort I put into being a supporter of the movement.Drummond was first introduced to Special Olympics as a rookie when he attended an NBA Cares event. From that moment on, he was determined to be as involved as he could in promoting the cause and working with the athletes all over the world.Just seeing how much they love the game and the excitement they had just drew me to them, Drummond said. Year after year I continued to do it, and I tried to be more involved, and now its kind of like that next level being an international ambassador.Drummond joins other high-profile ambassadors such as Michael Phelps, Damian Lillard, Yao Ming and WNBA star Elena Delle Donne.Andre has experienced firsthand how sports can build fitness, confidence and skills among Special Olympics athletes and how playing unified and being unified can break down barriers and help build respect and inclusion in every neighboring school and community across the nation, Special Olympics CEO Mary Davis said.Unified programs work to pair students with and without intellectual disabilities for education and sports.As much as Drummond enjoys playing basketball with those he met on Thursday, he said the real experience comes in the conversations and interactions away from the court.Anybody can shoot and throw the ball around, he said. But when you get the time to really speak to them and hear their stories and see the kinds of personalities they have, its something you cant really describe. You have to be there for the moment. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. Cheap NFL Jerseys China . - Goaltender Philippe Desrosiers of the Rimouski Oceanic has broken a shutout record that was only three months old in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. https://www.chinajerseysnfl.us/ . 4 Villanova with a 96-68 drubbing on Monday. Wragge hit 9-of-14 from behind the arc, matching Kyle Korvers school record for 3-pointers in a game set in 2003, as Creighton (16-3, 6-1 Big East broke a conference record with 21 treys in the rout. Last week we started our quest to review all 132 cards from Hearthstones Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, with the first two parts of our comprehensive card review and our exclusive reveal and roundtable discussion of Grimestreet Pawnbroker. Our first set of reviews focused on class and tri-class cards this expansion; now we move on to the neutrals announced so far.We start off with the Big-Time Racketeer, six-mana 1/1 that summons a 6/6 Little Friend (I love Scarface references). The first thing I ask myself on a card that isnt vanilla is How can this be exploited in a win condition? Six-mana 7/7 is perfectly reasonable in itself, but theres not a ton of synergy with cards it likely will be paired with. The exception is Brann Bronzebeard, who triggers Battlecry twice, but Brann has trouble surviving a turn -- making Brann + Racketeer a win condition -- and 13/13 of stats for 10 mana that doesnt affect the board isnt really that great. Fine in Arena, where stats rule.Im always on the lookout for anti-aggro tools, and the Second-Rate Bruiser fits the cards here. By becoming a three-mana 4/5 with taunt if your opponent has three minions -- and insane amount of value -- it fills a needed role, buying time if playing against low-curve decks flooding the board with tokens. A 4/5 minion with taunt isnt exciting on Turn 5 otherwise, but its not a dreadful card that loses you the game if you play it.Kooky Chemist, Crazed Alchemists (a two-mana 2/2 with the same text) bigger cousin, doesnt strike me as a card likely to see competitive play. Two additional mana for 2/2 stats is worse than a vanilla two-mana minion, and if you want the effect, you can just choose to play Crazed Alchemist for fewer mana. Might see some play in Arena, but likely a little below average.Another early-game card, where Second-Rate Bruiser tries to be the new Sludge Belcher, Mistress of Mixtures is an attempt to replace the beloved Zombie Chow. 2/2 is a worse line than 2/3 at fighting for board, but you also get four health back, where Zombie Chow only healed the opponent for five. This is significant because control decks that would use this card would sometimes see their health a little too low when the Face Hunter simply ignored Zombie Chow and went face.For neutral legendaries, we start off with Patches the Pirate, a Stonetusk Boar that gets played for free whenever you have a Pirate. On the surface, the effect looks exploitable, but I think this card wont be as solid as many in the community think. It does give you a free 1/1 and thins out your Pirate deck. However, to make a one-turn-kill deck, you likely need to be playing Gang Up, but then youre stuck having Gang Up, which wont always be able to hit this target. In a pure Pirate deck, youll frequently not be able to play this at the moment you want because a Pirate deck needs to play pirates.For cool artwork and concept, Finja, the Flying Star is tough to beat. Unfortunately, it doesnt really fit Murloc burst decks, and the old-style Murloc decks, where you just stuff in every good Murloc, arent good enough these days.Madam Goya is a card with interesting possibilities, but one I think that will not see that much play. Why? Because she needs a deck around her to make her effect work well, but that effect itself isnt good enough. If it were, wed see competitive YShaarj decks and Varian Wrynn be more than a very niche choice in Control Warrior. A six-mana 4/3 has to have an effect thats completely bananas to see play, and this one doesnt. Sure, you can get a second Reno Jacckson effect off, but you can already do this with one of the Brewmaster cards, and precisely zero people are doing this in high-level play. Nike NFL Jerseys Outlet. Auctionmaster Beardo would be terrific if Inspire decks were a thing. Theyre not, and Blizzard hasnt done anything with the mechanic since the Grand Tournament was released, so there likely arent yet-to-be-unveiled cards that will make this card bonkers. A three-mana 3/4 has good stats, so this will mostly be seen in Arena, where you do sometimes end up with Murloc Knight or Kvaldir Raider. Thunder Bluff Valiant is the only card I see that can really exploit this, but I dont think its good enough for Midrange Shaman, which, while very much a fan of triggering the Valiant twice, wants to already have a scary board by the Turn 9 required for this combo.Friendly Bartender is a straightforward card to look at. We have lots of two-mana 2/3 cards that do something, and in this case, the something just isnt that appealing. Just not good enough, but will at least exist in Arena.Thats more than can be said for the Wind-up Burglebot, which too often will be simply a six-mana 5/5 with no effect, which is absolutely dreadful. Whats the dream for this card? That you play this on a board of token on Turn 6 and start clearing a token every turn? Cards are nice, but if you actually have time to take advantage of this effect, youve probably won anyway, so the card doesnt do anything of value.The Fel Orc Soulfiend is a tricky card to value. Getting a three mana 3/5 on turn three is terrific, but its also a card that will die on its own if you dont invest mana in it to keep it alive. I can see some shenanigans in a Priest deck, but the problem is youd need a Priest deck that actually chooses to play Silence or Purify, and in that case, Injured Blademaster and Circle of Healing are the more useful combo. This will see play in Arena, however, as it can remove a 3/2 or a 4/3 and survive a turn unless the opponent invests another minion or a costly ping into dealing with it.Windfury is one of the more difficult mechanics for Blizzard to manage, as theres a fine line between a card being superpowerful and overpriced and unplayable. The Grook Fu Master is probably on the latter line but would be insane at one fewer mana! Its too costly, and like Windfury Harpy and Thrallmar Farseer, both similar cards that are a bit too expensive, will only see some edge play in Arena. Whirling Zap-o-Matic remains the only successful Windfury card that doesnt have crazy burst potential (as in Raging Worgen and AlAkir the Windlord).Im surprised that the Worgen Greaser wasnt named the Worgen Rager, given the theme of high attack/low health and unplayability. A four-mana 6/3 is no more playable than a three-mana 5/2. The developers have said that all expansions are going to have some bad cards. This is one of them.Meh. Thats my only reaction to the Backroom Bouncer, a four-mana 4/4 that needs a lot to go right to be playable. You need at least one minion to die just to make it a 5/4, and if you wanted to play a 5/4, there are already a lot of them to choose from. A 6/4 or a 7/4 gets a bit more interesting, but the four health makes it easily removable no matter how large it gets. Id rather play a guaranteed 7/4 Ancient Shade at the same cost and risk the seven health instead of killing three of my own minions. And Im not playing Ancient Shade (nor are you). ' ' ' 
OKLAHOMA CITY -- Russell Westbrook is a multi-millionaire basketball player, far removed from the rough community he came from in the Los Angeles area. Custom Nike Texas Rangers Jerseys .When the Thunder All-Star learned about the recent police shootings of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa and Keith Scott in Charlotte, his mind went right back to his old neighborhood.Me growing up in the inner city and being able to see different things on a night in and day in, day out basis -- it hit home for me, just being able to see the different things thats going on globally, and giving people across the world an opportunity to see it, Westbrook said at Thunder media day on Friday. Now, its getting to a point that theres something that needs to be changed in that aspect. Im going to use my voice as much as possible to relay that aspect.Crutcher, 40, was shot Sept. 16. Police say the unarmed black man was shot by a white police officer, Betty Shelby, who has been charged with manslaughter. Tulsa is just a two-hour drive from Oklahoma City. Westbrook said the impact goes way beyond the incidents themselves.A lot of people dont realize the families of all these young men, Westbrook said. Their mothers, brothers, sisters, uncles. I think its very important that we understand how the families feel throughout these situations.Westbrook said he plans to use his platform to help find solutions.Me, being an African American athlete and having a voice, I think its important that its important that I make a stand that something has to change, he said. I think that -- obviously, I dont have an answer. Nobody has an answer. If that was the case, we would have fixed it. But its important that we try to figure out what we can do to help improve the things thats going on.Keith Lamont Scott, 43, was shot in Charlotte on Tuesday by a police officer. Both men are black. Thunder player Anthony Morrow, who is from Charlotte, was shaken by the shooting in his hometown.Obviously, Im sad, that being in my own personal city, he said. Its a very unfortunate, sad situation. Its a sad and unfortunate time that were in right now. It really hit home with me with it being Tulsa, then the next day, Charlotte. Its just something that, weve got to continue to pray and try to find the right answer or medium, because right now, its kind of all or nothing. So Im praying for my city and Tulsa and everywhere else.San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has chosen not to stand during the national anthem, saying he wouldnt show pride in the flag of a country that oppresses black people and people of color.Earlier this week, NBA players received a memo from the league and the National Basketball Players Association saying both were working on finding substantive ways to take meaningful action and effect `positive change.Neither Westbrook nor Morrow revealed whether they would stand for the anthem. Morrow said he has no issue if an athlete protests.If youve got a voice and youve got a stage and you feel like expressing yourself, I totally understand that, he said.Thunder general manager Sam Presti said Wednesday that, though hed prefer the players stand, he respects their right to free speech.We want to learn how we can help them take the symbol (flag) and try to create platforms for action, Presti said. And I think thats one of the great roles that any organization can play, especially here in Oklahoma City, which is great, given our relationship with the community.---Follow Cliff Brunt on Twitter (at)CliffBruntAP Custom Nike Baseball Jerseys Black Friday . Michell Burger, a woman who lives on an estate next to Pistorius gated community, said she and her husband were awoken by the screams in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14 last year, when Pistorius killed Reeva Steenkamp by shooting four times through a door in his bathroom. Custom Nike New York Mets Jerseys . LOUIS -- Theres no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. https://www.customjerseysnikebaseball.com/custom-nike-arizona-diamondbacks-jerseys/ . Capitals head coach Adam Oates said Ovechkin was injured in the first period against the Vancouver Canucks on Monday and clarified it was not a head injury. In England coach Eddie Jones mind New Zealand control the world of rugby but says the All Blacks are just three percent better than the chasing pack and insists they do have weaknesses.England arent due to meet the All Blacks until 2018 but if they continue their rich vein of form then a number of Jones squad are likely to travel with the British & Irish Lions on the New Zealand tour next June.The All Blacks saw off Argentina on Saturday to make it 14 wins on the trot and currently sit atop of the ranking. But Jones says they can be usurped as the worlds best side and believes they are just three percent better than the rest.They [New Zealand] are good, Jones said, speaking on behalf of Mitsubishi Motors as they announced a new partnership with England Rugby. Theyre bloody good. But they are beatable. Like every team, they are beatable.This three percent theory is born from his time at the Brumbies where in his first season in charge they finished tenth. After spending the close-season poring over the statistics behind the poor campaign, he found his side were just the smallest of margins off the leading teams.Thats always stayed with me, people say its 15/20 percent but its not there are small differences, Jones said. If you look at Argentina at the weekend and if they do one or two things differently at crucial times of the game and that result would have been a lot closer.Fitness and ball retention are two areas Jones feels his England team can improve on and he has spent the close season working on developing his three-man coaching team of Neal Hatley, Steve Borthwick and Paul Gustard.He has brought in some of Great Britains top backroom staff to relay their experiences of Rio 2016 and taking a more wide-ranging view over the current state of coaching in rugby, he feels New Zealand have got the right model of developing rugby brains of the future.New Zealand control the world, Jones said. They control every bit of rugby, every law thats changed, New Zealand drrive it. Custom Nike Baseball Jerseys Online. They control rugby in so many different countries: in Japan, they are about it control it in Scotland again, the succession plan is already there in place. Wales they control it, Ireland and Georgia. They are a smart country.He added: They develop their coaches in New Zealand; they coach to Super Rugby level, become successful, go overseas and coach the northern hemisphere.So they get a full round of education. They come back to New Zealand; they are ready to coach the All Blacks. Steve Hansen and Graham Henry both had stints in Wales which rounded off their coaching experience.Theres no coincidence in the fact that New Zealand have become a better all-round team. Now their set-piece is second to none.English coaches need to get that other bit of the game which is in the southern hemisphere, which is the unstructured rugby, the organised chaos.Jones was at Sandy Park on Sunday to assess Billy Vunipolas early season form and believes hes racing in the direction of developing into a world-class player as is Owen Farrell. He feels they are setting the benchmark to the rest of their England team-mates.While the All Blacks will be lying in wait in 2018, Jones immediate attention is on the autumn Test series. He is due to confirm his Elite Player Squad on September 30 and will then whittle that down to a 32-man squad to go into a Brighton camp in early October.England will then face South Africa, Fiji, Argentina and Australia over four weekends and if they triumph in each Test then they will have gone a whole calendar year unbeaten. But Jones does not want his team to focus on that target but instead on match-by-match improvement.Our motivation is just to get better, Jones said. We want to be the number one team in the world, New Zealand are head of the pack at the moment but theyre beatable, they have flaws in their game. ' ' '
