COOPERSTOWN, N. Patrick Ricard Jersey .Y. -- Two players who began their careers at opposite ends of the spectrum nearly three decades ago ended up in the same place on Sunday -- with their names etched on plaques at the Baseball Hall of Fame.For Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza, the culmination of their long journeys was tinged with tears all around.I stand up here humbled and overwhelmed, Griffey said, staring out at his family and tens of thousands of fans. I cant describe how it feels.The two became a piece of history on their special day. Griffey, the first pick of the 1987 amateur draft, became the highest pick ever inducted. Piazza, a 62nd-round pick the next year -No. 1,390 -- is the lowest pick to enter the Hall of Fame.Griffey played 22 big-league seasons with the Mariners, Reds and White Sox and was selected on a record 99.32 percent of ballots cast, an affirmation of sorts for his clean performance during baseballs so-called Steroids Era.A 13-time All-Star and 10-time Gold Glove Award winner in center field, Griffey hit 630 home runs, sixth all-time, and drove in 1,836 runs. He also was the American League MVP in 1997, drove in at least 100 runs in eight seasons, and won seven Silver Slugger Awards.Griffey, who fell just three votes shy of being the first unanimous selection, hit 417 of his 630 homers and won all 10 of his Gold Gloves with the Seattle Mariners. He played the first 11 seasons of his career with the Mariners and led them to the playoffs for the first two times in franchise history.Thirteen years with the Seattle Mariners, from the day I got drafted, Seattle, Washington, has been a big part of my life, Griffey said, punctuating the end of his speech by putting a baseball cap on backward as he did throughout his career.Im going to leave you with one thing. In 22 years I learned that one team will treat you the best, and thats your first team. Im damn proud to be a Seattle Mariner.Dubbed The Natural for his effortless excellence at the plate and in center field, Griffey avoided the Hall of Fame until his special weekend because he wanted his first walk through the front doors of the stately building on Main Street to be with his kids, whom he singled out one by one in his 20-minute speech.There are two misconceptions about me -- I didnt work hard and everything I did I made look easy, Griffey said. Just because I made it look easy doesnt mean that it was. You dont become a Hall of Famer by not working, but working day in and day out.Griffeys mom, Birdie, and his father, former Cincinnati Reds star Ken Sr., both cancer survivors and integral to his rise to stardom, were front and center in the first row.To my dad, who taught me how to play this game and to my mom, the strongest woman I know, Junior said. To have to be mom and dad, she was our biggest fan and our biggest critic. Shes the only woman I know that lives in one house and runs five others.Selected in the draft by the Dodgers after Hall of Fame manager Tommy Lasorda, a close friend of Piazzaa father, Vince, put in a good word, Piazza struggled.He briefly quit the game while in the minor leagues, returned and persevered despite a heavy workload as he switched from first base to catcher and teammates criticized his erratic play.Mom and dad were foremost on his mind, too.Dad always dreamed of playing in the major leagues, said Piazza, just the second Hall of Famer depicted on his plaque wearing a Mets cap, after Tom Seaver in 1992.He could not follow that dream because of the realities of life. My fathers faith in me, often greater than my own, is the single most important factor of me being inducted into this Hall of Fame. Thank you dad. We made it, dad. The race is over. Now its time to smell the roses.Piazza played 16 years with the Dodgers, Marlins, Mets, Padres and Athletics and hit 427 home runs, including a major league record 396 as a catcher. A 12-time All-Star, Piazza won 10 Silver Slugger Awards and finished in the top five of his leagues MVP voting four times.Perhaps even more impressive, Piazza, a .308 career hitter, posted six seasons with at least 30 home runs, 100 RBI and a .300 batting average (all other catchers in baseball history combined have posted nine such seasons).Though the Dodgers gave him his start, Piazza found a home in New York when he was traded to the Mets in May 1998.Three years later, he became a hero to the hometown fans with perhaps the most notable home run of his career. His two-run shot in the eighth inning at Shea Stadium lifted the Mets to a 3-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves in the first sporting event played in New York after the 9/11 terror attacks.Piazza paid tribute to that moment.To witness the darkest evil of the human heart ... will be forever burned in my soul, Piazza said. But from tragedy and sorrow came bravery, love, compassion, character and eventual healing.Many of you give me praise for the two-run home run in the first game back on Sept. 21st, but the true praise belongs to police, firefighters, first responders that knew that they were going to die, but went forward anyway. I pray that we never forget their sacrifice.Attendance was estimated at around 50,000 by the Hall of Fame, tying 1999 for second-most all time. Demetrius Williams Jersey . Its sharpness matched my mind. This was no night to go to sleep. Bradley Bozeman Jersey . -- Former San Diego Chargers safety Paul Oliver was found dead at his Atlanta-area home Tuesday night, and a medical examiner said Wednesday that the ex-player committed suicide. . -- Bryant McKinnie came out of his stance and lowered his shoulder into a practice squad player, causing a crisp thud to reverberate in the Miami Dolphins practice bubble. Its a tradition practically as old as the sport itself: a hockey team led onto the ice by a goaltender wearing No. 1. From Jacques Plante to Glenn Hall to Johnny Bower, goalies wearing the simple number were the starting point of rosters for decades.If you were a goalie, you wore No. 1. Thats just how it was.Operative word here being was.Todays goalies have gone in a different direction when it comes to the digits on their back. And the result has almost eliminated the No. 1 altogether.As a kid, I always had 1, said former goaltender and current broadcaster Brian Hayward, who wore the number for almost his entire 11-year NHL career. Every time the goalie was 1, so I just stuck with it. It almost became like an expectation for me.The No. 1 goalie wore 1. Another reason why you wanted that number. You wanted to say, Im the No. 1. Thats the way I looked at it.Its believed that goalies were given the No. 1 because they were the first player on a rink when looking from the net outward. When a goalie was injured, for instance, the replacement goalie would also wear No. 1.The numbering system changed when roster expansion required teams to field two goaltenders. The most notable change occurred in 1964, when legendary goaltender Terry Sawchuk joined the Toronto Maple Leafs. With Bower already wearing No. 1, Sawchuk went with No. 24 before taking on No. 30 and forever changing the numbers associated with goalies.The Chicago Blackhawks Tony Esposito wore No. 35, and goaltenders began gravitating increasingly toward the 30s thanks to Patrick Roy, whose usual No. 30 was worn by Chris Nilan when he joined the Montreal Canadiens as a rookie, forcing Roy to go with No. 33. Roys legendary exploits in Montreal and with the Colorado Avalanche truly began a wave of iconic goalies wearing numbers that were uniquely theirs.When you saw a guy wearing 33 youd go, Wow, hes wearing 33, Hayward said. Im sure a lot of kids wear 33 because of Pat. Ken Dryden was 29. A lot of guys, if they had a favorite [goalie], would go in that direction.Today, the No. 1 has mostly gone the way of the two-pad stack. At the beginning of December, only seven goalies were wearing the number. Its a dramatic shift from just 25 years ago, when more goalies wore the number during the 1991-92 season, despite the NHLs fielding only 22 teams. Six teams have retired the No. 1 (not including the?Minnesota Wild, who retired the number in honor of their fans), which also pushed goalies to be creative when it came to picking a number.After being forced to abandon the number last season with the Canadiens, who retired the number in honor of Plante, Mike Condon was thrilled to get it back this season. He took back the number with the Pittsburgh Penguins and retained it after being traded to the Ottawa Senators.Its just the number I wore in high school and the number I wore in college, he said. Any chance I get to wear it, Im going to grab it. I think its old-school. I just like it.The number is certainly a throwback, especially with the Florida Panthers Roberto Luongo, who at 37 is the leagues oldest goaltender, wearing it. In fact, there are almost as many goaliies in the league wearing No. Bernard Pierce Jersey. 40 and No. 41 (four each) as there are wearing the number that historically defines the position. Others wearing the No. 1:?Jonathan Bernier of the Los Angeles Kings, Brian Elliott of the Calgary Flames, Semyon Varlamov of the Colorado Avalanche, Keith Kinkaid of the New Jersey Devils and Thomas Greiss of the New York Islanders.But some goalies forced to take on the single digit have come to love the loneliest number.Ive loved No. 1 since Ive gotten it, said Kinkaid. I like the single digit. Its grown on me quite a bit. Its simple. My last name is only seven [letters], so I think if I had two numbers, it would go outside the seven.Kinkaid wore No. 1 when he starred at Sachem High School East in Farmingville, New York. The school even retired the number in his honor. But he switched to No. 30 when he enrolled at Union College, a number he couldnt wear with the Devils thanks to a certain goalie named Martin Brodeur. Kinkaid switched to No. 35, which was eventually taken by current starter Cory Schneider after he was acquired from the Vancouver Canucks. With the Devils still among the few teams restricting which numbers players can wear, Kinkaid was given his old high school number.But not every goalie forced by the Devils to wear the number took so kindly to the change.I didnt like it. I think its a boring number, said former NHL goaltender and current broadcaster Kevin Weekes. Its just a boring-looking number, but I respect the history of the guys who have worn it, of course.Weekes was first assigned No. 1 by the Panthers when he came to the NHL in 1997-98, but he had worn double zero in junior hockey and the minors. The NHL doesnt allow the single or double doughnut because they cannot be registered in the leagues database. So, when he came to the New York Islanders in 1999, Weekes switched to No. 80, which he figured was as close to double zero as he could get.When it comes to traditional numbers, the Devils and Kinkaid have proved to be the exception. Whereas goalies typically expressed themselves through the art on their mask, some of the NHLs best have taken to doing that through their number.Maybe its not cool anymore to wear No. 1. For me, I always look for it, Hayward said.Many star goalies have gone off the conventional radar when it comes to their number, including the Blackhawks Corey Crawford (No. 50), the Columbus Blue Jackets Sergei Bobrovsky (No. 72), the Tampa Bay Lightnings Andrei Vasilevskiy (No. 88) and the Washington Capitals Braden Holtby (No. 70). Their influence could ultimately make the traditional No. 1 even less popular with todays up-and-coming goaltenders.I think a lot of guys with big numbers have them for a reason, Condon said. They have a story behind it.I dont really have anything like that. I just want the simplest number out there. Simple, to the point, succinct. No wasted energy there.Of course, Condon said there is one other number he would consider.Im just old-school, but Id do double zero if I could. ' ' ' 
Golf could be the next sport on Jarryd Haynes list of dreams, with the Gold Coast fullback set to play in a pro-am event in Fiji in October. Matt Szymanski Jersey Retro .But this time NRL fans can likely rest easy as the code-hopper isnt believed to be considering a future in the sport - hes just playing as a VIP guest ahead of the Fiji International, as part of an ambassadorial role on October 5.The NRL-turned-NFL-turned-rugby-sevens-turned-NRL star will play alongside PGA Tour winner Steven Bowditch to help raise money for the Cyclone Winston recovery efforts, after more than 40 people were killed by the wild weather in the country earlier this year.I love Fiji and I love sport so to be able to come back and witness Fijis largest sporting event is a great way to spend some time, Hayne said.Playing with a two-time PGA Tour winner is an incredible opportunity that doesnt come around very often.I hope that a golf fan out there sees playing with Bowdo and I as a unique experience and that we generate a large donation for the Winston recovery efforts.Bowditch will be joined by the likes of three-time major champion Vijay Singh, Australian Robert Allenby and world No.23 Brandt Snedeker at the Fiji International, which begins the next day,However, PGA Tour of Australiasia chief executive Brian Thorburn said Hayne would be one of the biggest drawcards at the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course.Jarryd has proven he is a world-class athlete in so many sports and has a global fan base, Thorburn said.His support of the Fiji International will further assist the Fiji International in reaching all sports fans, not just golf fans.

In fact it was really bad. I dont like not performing to the best of my ability. I dont know where it went wrong so Ill talk to my coach. I didnt feel my transition was any good so Ive got a lot to work on. Maybe thats just what I need. If it wasnt such a strong race, I might have got away with it but with the girls I was up against, there was no way that was happening.In Olympic year you cant be making basic, technical mistakes so maybe it was a good thing it happened now. I can go away, talk to my coach and fix it.The event was being staged at Glasgows Emirates Arena for the first time after a deal was struck to see it shared year-to-year with Birmingham.But home favourite Laura Muir failed to give the sell-out Scottish crowd the result they were looking for after finding herself boxed in during the early stages of the 800m as she finished behind Canadian Melissa Bishop, silver medallist at last years World Championship in Beijing.But Scottish Athlete of the Year Muir - targeting the 1500m in Brazil - was satisfied and said: You cant do any better than a PB, so Im delighted.

Mark Warburton has backed Niko Kranjcar to return fitter and stronger after surgeons reported the Rangers playmakers knee surgery had been a success. Nike Air Max 1 2022 . The Croatia international midfielder ruptured his cruciate ligament last month in a freak training ground accident and was ruled out for the remainder of the season.Rangers boss Warburton accepts the 32-year-old faces a lengthy rehabilitation period, but is hopeful Kranjcar will make a full recovery. The Englishman told Rangers website: Nikos operation went well, the stitches came out on Monday, which he is pleased about and the inflammation is down.He is going through the normal four weeks [recovery period] and then after four weeks he will revisit the surgeon and hopefully get the green light to push on from there.It is a really structured week-by-week programme, there is no cutting corners and unfortunately it is a very common injury in football now but the programme is set. Kranjcar was injured in a training ground accident It is a week-by-week programme and you cant be doing well at four weeks and jump ahead to eight, it doesnt work that way, you have to go step after step.He is in great hands and his attitude is first class and we have no doubt he will return back fitter and stronger than ever.Warburton has also been left frustrated after seeing promising midfielder Jordan Rossiter suffer another a setback in his fight for fitness.The 19-year-old Liverpudlian is nursing a calf injury, having not played since late August when he hobbled off against Kilmarnock. Six months half price Upgrade to Sky Sports now to watch Man U v Arsenal on Saturday and get the first 6 months half price Jordan is getting there, he had a small setback and there is a lot of work being done with him, said Warburton.Jordan is a boy who just wants to play football. His ability is more than evident to anyone who has seen him play this season.The frustration is obvious, but hes working hard and these things happen, these frustrations come with the game.Jordan is very frustrated at the moment, but there is no doubt his quality is there and well see it sooner rather than later Im sure. Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter is still out of action with a calf problem Meanwhile, Warburton has sent first-teamers Philippe Senderos, Danny Wilson, Matt Crooks, Martyn Waghorn and Barrie McKay north with the Light Blues U20s side for Tuesdays development league clash with Ross County.Centre-backs Senderos and Wilson are making their way back from injury and Warburton wants the rest of the group to pick up some valuable action ahead of Saturdays Ibrox clash with Dundee.Warburton said: We had a decent session on Monday and four or five of the boys will be involved in the U20s game on Tuesday at Ross County.That is good for them and means they can get some pitch time after the break, that has worked out well for us and they have a good playing surface up there. Philippe Senderos will be in action for the U20 side on Tuesday We will probably look to involve Philippe and Danny from a defensive point of view, Matt Crooks and Barrie McKay will get some pitch time and Waggy will play too.Waggy, all credit to him, was keen to play in the last 20s game, but it was an artificial surface and we were hesitant.They are putting four or five first-teamers out as well, so hopefully it will be a good test and they will look forward to that.We were down to two centre-halves and all credit to the medical and performance guys for working so hard and to the boys for putting the effort in.They boys are back and training with us and they need minutes now, at the moment Clint and Rob have the jerseys but it is about being ready when your chance comes along.Upgrade to Sky Sports now to watch Man Utd v Arsenal this Saturday and get the first six months half price!

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Now that his flag-carrying duties are out of the way, Michael Phelps is eager to get started on his fifth Olympics.That will likely come Sunday in the 4x100-meter freestyle relay, a title the Americans are gunning to reclaim after getting chased down by the French in 2012.Phelps expected debut would be one of the highlights on the second day of swimming at the Rio Games, though hed have to share the spotlight with Katie Ledecky.Shell be seeking the first of an expected three individual gold medals, going in as a heavy favorite in the 400 freestyle. The only suspense seems to be whether shell break her own world record.Ledecky already picked up her first medal of the games, anchoring the womens 4x100 free relay to a silver-medal finish behind Australia on Saturday.Phelps, the most decorated athlete in Olympic history, wants to do his part for the mens relay team.Thats something Ive had the privilege to be a part of since 2004, and Im hoping to have the opportunity again, Phelps said. Its always super-fast and there are always some wild, crazy splits that take place.In 2008, the Americans memorably defeated the French when Jason Lezak rallied against Alain Bernard with the fastest 100 split in history, a victory that kept Phelps on course to win a record eight gold medals in Beijing.Four years ago, the French got their revenge when Yannick Agnel caught Ryan Lochte on the anchor leg.This time, its hardly a two-country race.The Australians figure to be in the mix, especially riding the momentum of an impressive opening night at the pool. They captured two gold medals, also taking the mens 400 free when Mack Horton held off defending Olympic champion Sun Yang of China, doubling up on the one gold medal they managed during their disappointing performance at the 2012 London Games.You can probabbly pick three or four teams that are going to have a chance to win that relay, Phelps said. Cheap Nike Air Max 1. The Australians made a significant charge over the past couple of years with their mens and womens teams combined. A lot of younger guys really stepped up, and that brings more excitement to the sport.The Americans are eager for gold after getting shut out on the first night of swimming, settling for three silvers. It was a first time they failed to win at least one race during an Olympic finals session at the pool since Aug. 14, 2008 -- the lone day Phelps didnt go for gold in Beijing.Phelps has been part of the 4x100 free relay at the last three Olympics, even though the 100 free has never been one of his individual specialties. Its unfathomable that the Americans would leave off a swimmer with 18 golds and 22 medals overall, especially after a dismal performance at last years worlds when the U.S. didnt even qualify for the final -- a performance that was especially galling to Phelps, who had to sit out the meet as part of his punishment for a second drunken-driving arrest.I do know that the coaching staff will put out the four fastest guys, whoever that is, Phelps said coyly. Im looking forward to either watching or being in that race.Also on tap for the second day of swimming: finals in the womens 100 butterfly, in which Swedens Sarah Sjostrom is favored to take down defending champion Dana Vollmer of the U.S., and the mens 100 breaststroke, where Adam Peaty of Britain already took down his own world record during the preliminaries.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at .

Adrian Colbert Super Bowl Jersey . “Hes a guy that I can see sticking around here,” said pitching coach Pete Walker. “Theres no doubt about it.” “You dont take anything for granted,” said Wagner. “This is a game where nothings promised to you and you have to earn your keep every time you go out there. I understand that; Im okay with that. Its good to have the confidence of the coaching staff but just keep going out there, doing what I can do and the rest will take care of itself.” Taken in the 21st round of the 2005 draft by Cleveland, Wagner spent four seasons in the Indians system, never ascending beyond Double-A. He had the 98 miles per hour fastball but had difficulty harnessing the pitch. He would get hit one night, walk too many the next outing. Fast forward to now, after a six-appearance cup of coffee with Oakland in 2011 and a rough season split between the Athletics and Padres Triple-A affiliates in 2012, Wagners learned hell be more successful if he puts less velocity on his fastball. “I think part of it is just realizing when I try to hump up and throw, try and add two miles an hour here and blow it by this guy, is that you tend to muscle up and not be as fluid and tend to lose a little velocity in addition to losing location,” said Wagner. “Just focusing on staying within yourself, delivering a good pitch and the reality is that for the most part, when I do that, I get my better velocity anyway.” “You can look at a radar gun all day long,” said bullpen coach and 1996 American League Cy Young award winner Pat Hentgen. “Sometimes two guys will throw 95 and youll think it should be the same, should have the same results but thats not the case. Some guys balls jump in that hitting area. I think Neils in that category. Fastball command is always an issue with all pitchers and the better fastball command you have the more success youll have long term and I think thats starting to happen for Neil.” Wagners first hiccup came on Sunday. Just two days removed from his first major league win, he suffered his first major league loss. Pitching for a third consecutive day, Wagner was brought in with two outs in the seventh inning of a 4-4 game against Texas. Rangers designated hitter Adrian Beltre hit an opposite field home run, giving Texas a lead it wouldnt relinquish. If there was a time when Wagner would have worried about his fate either during, or in the aftermath, of such an outing, its in the past. “On some level you always, you know, youre not being sent down,” said Wagner. “You have to realize that you have no control over it. A guy hits a home run, theres nothing I can do at that point thats going to keep them from sending me down so all I have to do is refocus and get the next guy.” With just the one earned run allowed – the Beltre home run – in eight innings over seven appearances, Wagner is making his case to hang around. Hes being used in pressure situations, slowly gaining the trust of manager John Gibbons and the coaching staff. “They seem to like how Ive been throwing the ball,” said Wagner. “Im hoping to stay and hopefully they feel the same way. They seem to like what Ive been doing so far and Im going to try to keep doing that.” MORROW FEELING GOOD Brandon Morrow (forearm soreness) will throw a bullpen session in Chicago on Tuesday. From there, hell throw another bullpen upon his arrival at the Blue Jays complex in Dunedin, Florida. Morrow will split from the team when it travels to Arlington after Wednesdays game. WALKER REMEMBERS 18-INNING GAME Prior to Saturdays 4-3 win over Texas, there was only one other 18-inning game in Blue Jays history. Toronto beat the Angels 2-1 when Orlando Hudson singled home Alex Rios. The winning pitcher that day was current pitching coach Pete Walker. “It was one of those games where I dont believe I was supposed to pitch for some particular reason, whether it was short rest or what not,” said Walker. “I had my spikes on and as the game went on, that 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th inning, you saw one reliever after the other leave the bullpen to go into the game you started to sense that maybe this could happen. “You know youve got to suck it up and find a way to get some outs and fortunately I was able to do that for a few innings and we won the game in the 18th inning.” The starter for the Blue Jays that day? Dave Bush, whos back in the organization and pitching at Triple-A Buffalo. Richie James Super Bowl Jersey .ca. Hey Kerry, big fan of yours, just finished reading your book. I think that we all saw the Canucks/Flames line brawl just after puck drop. It was obvious that something was about to happen, even to the referees because the fourth lines were on to start. Arik Armstead Super Bowl Jersey . Los Angeles star goalie survived those perilous gymnastics with no problem, and he eventually backstopped the Kings to a skid-snapping win. Quick stopped 27 shots in his return from a 24-game injury absence, Jeff Carter scored the tiebreaking goal with 7:55 to play, and the Kings snapped their five-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night. . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. Sri Lankans 328 for 6 (Kaushal 80, Karunaratne 71, Linde 2-72) v South African Invitation XIScorecard Sri Lankas batsmen made a bright start to the tour of South Africa, as Dimuth Karunaratne, Kaushal Silva, Kusal Mendis and Dhananjaya de Silva hit half-centuries on the first day of the tour match in Potchefstroom. The visitors went to stumps at 328 for the loss of six wickets, against a South Africa Invitation XI consisting of well-heeled first-class players and recent graduates of the Under-19 system.Especially encouraging for the Sri Lankans was the 159-run unbroken opening stand between Karunaratne and Silva, each of whom has struggled at various points during the course of the year. Both men were retired out at the end of the 45th over, Karunaratne with 71 runs to his name and Silva with 80.Kusal Perera only hit 25, but his entry at No. 3 suggests the team management is keen for him to resume batting in the top order as he had done for much of the series against Australia. Jaquiski Tartt Super Bowl Jersey. . This would also allow Kusal Mendis to come in at second drop. Mendis, who was in good form during the back end of the ODI tri-series in Zimbabwe, hit 10 fours in his 64-ball 51.Captain Angelo Mathews and vice-captain Dinesh Chandimal, both returning from injury, collected a five-ball duck and 23 respectively, before de Silva ensured the day ended briskly, with five fours and two sixes in his unbeaten 57 off 67.The Invitation XIs batting appears its stronger suit, so it may be that a more thorough workout awaits the Sri Lankan bowlers than the batsmen, so far, have got. Left-arm spinner George Linde took 2 for 72 in the course of the day. Seamers Duanne Olivier and Jason Smith took one wicket each. ' ' ' 
Fresh off induction into the National Basketball Hall of Fame last month, Shaquille ONeal made an appearance at the Providence Friars Late Night Madness, an annual event that signifies the beginning of the college basketball season. Custom Saints T-shirts . This wasnt just any appearance, though. ONeal entertained throngs of students in attendance by serving as DJ for Saturday evenings festivities.The four-time NBA champion arrived early to set up sound equipment on stage before adopting the moniker DJ Diesel and mixing an array of 90s and early-2000s hip-hop, including songs from The Notorious B.I.G., Snoop Dogg and DMX. This era of music coincided with ONeals prime as an NBA player.ONeal earned 15 All-Star Game selections throughout his career with the Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics. He was the NBA Rookie of the Year in 1993 after playing collegiately for the LSU Tigers. One of the most dominant centers in league history, ONeal ended his 19-year career in 2011 with averages of 23.7 points per game and 10.9 rebounds per game on 58.2 percent shooting from the field.ESPNs Doris Burke was also on hand to emcee Late Night Madness. The 1987 graduate of Providence played four years on the womens basketball team, setting a school record for assists during her tenure. She still remains in second place on that list nearly 30 years later.-- Nick Ostiller Marques Colston Jersey .

The (11-11-4) Jets are seventh in the Central Division with 26 points. Fifth place Dallas and sixth-seeded Nashville also have 26 points, but the Stars have three games in hand on Winnipeg while Nashville has two. SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -- Steve Asmussen often exhibits a hardened exterior, never truly revealing what hes thinking, to the point where sometimes its not easy to tell if he won or lost a race.On Friday, however, Asmussen showed an emotional side rarely seen publicly as he was formally inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame.Asmussen got choked up sitting in the front row as Julie, his wife of 19 years, introduced him. Later, when talking about his parents, Keith and Marilyn, Steve Asmussen had to stop.My dad and my mom. Mom, thank you for the faith you have given us, Asmussen said before choking up and getting some water while the audience applauded. I havent even been able to say this driving down the road with my windows up.Asmussen talked about the example his father set for him and his brother Cash, a former jockey.Everybody in this room is here for the love of horse racing, and growing up in this family allowed an opportunity to experience these things together, Asmussen said.Asmussen, 50, was part of an A-list class of Hall of Fame inductees that included jockey Ramon Dominguez and the brilliant racemares Rachel Alexandra and Zenyatta. The Thoroughbred Tom Ochiltree and jockey Wayne D. Wright were voted in by the Hall of Fame Historic Committee, while Arthur B. Bull Hancock Jr. and William Woodward Sr. were inducted in the Pillars of the Turf category.It was the emotion that Julie and Steve Asmussen displayed that highlighted the two-hour ceremony. Last September, Julie Asmussen was found to have neck and throat cancer. In March, she was declared cancer-free.The way his wife came through that battle made it a no-brainer to have her introduce him, Asmussen said after the ceremony. The couple has three sons, who also came up on stage to present the Hall of Fame plaque.The most powerful lesson you have shared with the boys, and me as well, is you never give up, no matter what the battle may be, Julie Asmussen said, perhaps a veiled reference to the accusations of horse abuse made by People for Ethical Treatment of Animals in 2014. You wake up every morning and give it your best. Effort is everything.Asmussen credited many of his owners for his success -- which includes 7,379 wins and $244.9 million in purse money won. He said if it wasnt for Ron Lance encouraging him to take a string of horses to Birmingham Race Course in 1987, Id still be galloping for Dad.Among the other owners he thanked were Barbara Banke and her late husband, Jess Jackson, who privately purchased both Curlin and Rachel Alexandra. Curlin was the 2007-08 Horse of the Year and a 2014 Hall of Fame inductee. Rachel Alexandra was the 2009 Horse of the Year and among this years celebrants. Asmussen trained both of them.Jess was such an amazing man, and I stand here regretting tthat I didnt take more of an advantage of the opportunity that I had with him, Asmussen said. Carl Nicks Jersey. Rachel Alexandras 3-year-old season in 2009 was one for the ages. After dominating fillies for her previous connections -- breeder and part-owner Dolphus Morrison and trainer Hal Wiggins -- a majority interest in Rachel Alexandra was sold to Jess Jacksons Stonestreet Stables and a partner, Harold McCormick. She was transferred to Asmussen, who placed her against males for three of her final four starts that year. She won the Preakness and Haskell against 3-year-olds, then defeated older males in the Grade 1 Woodward at Saratoga.I think courage is the main thing that strikes me about her, Banke said. Records broken, incredible margins of victory, terrific battles such as the Woodward that she prevailed in.It was somewhat appropriate that Rachel Alexandra and Zenyatta were inducted together. Though they never met on the track, they had their race in the battle of public opinion.Zenyatta, two years older than Rachel Alexandra, won her first 19 starts before losing a heartbreaking head decision to Blame in the 2010 Breeders Cup Classic, which was her final race.Its amazing to have the girls [enshrined] in the same year, said Ann Moss, part-owner of Zenyatta, pointing to Banke. Moss owned Zenyatta with her husband, Jerry, the founder of A&M Records.Zenyatta was named for an album by The Police that was produced on Jerry Mosss record label.Sting has said that Zenyatta doesnt mean anything in particular, but I think it describes her perfectly, Ann Moss said. She has that Zen -- inner peace with knowing exactly who she is -- and she flows love to all that she meets. And the Yatta, I understand that means celebration, and shes a lot to celebrate. It was a joy and a privilege to be associated with Zenyatta.Tom Durkin, the master of ceremonies and retired race-caller, said his one regret was not having called a race in which Zenyatta ran.The ceremony ended with the grace and class of Dominguez, whose career came to a premature end due to a head injury suffered in a spill at Aqueduct in 2013.Dominguez, a three-time Eclipse Award winner who had 4,985 victories, came to the podium without a prepared speech.Every time that I decided to do it, I would reflect back on my career, and I would start to cry, Dominguez said. These are tears of joy, nothing bad.Dominguez dedicated his Hall of Fame honor to his agent, Steve Rushing, saying, Not only is he a master at what he does, but more important, hes an outstanding human being.During his introduction of Dominguez, Rushing said, When you look up the definition of Hall of Fame, you will see Ramon Dominguez.
