MIAMI -- President Barack Obama has invited the World Series champion Chicago Cubs to visit him at the White House. Lucas Moura Paris Saint-Germain Jersey .The team will have to make travel arrangements quickly, though, because Obama leaves office in mid-January. Obama extended the invitation to manager Joe Maddon during a congratulatory telephone call Thursday evening as he flew back to Washington aboard Air Force One.Obama tweeted the invitation early Thursday, shortly after the Cubs won their first championship since 1908 by defeating the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in 10 innings.It happened: (at)Cubs win World Series. Thats change even this South Sider can believe in. Want to come to the White House before I leave?The Cubs arent Obamas preferred baseball team; his loyalties lie with the White Sox.White House spokesman Eric Schultz said Obama rooted for the Cubs because hes from Chicago and the White Sox didnt make it to the championship. He said Obama watched the final innings of the game at his hotel in Miami late Wednesday after campaigning for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.Obama congratulated the Cubs at another Clinton rally Thursday. He said he had heard someone explain that, when the Cubs last won the World Series, inventor Thomas Edison was alive and sliced bread wasnt yet invented.Obama said the championship is actually, for Cubs fans, the greatest thing since sliced bread.---Follow Darlene Superville on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/dsupervilleap Julian Draxler Paris Saint-Germain Jersey . "I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from. Yuri Berchiche Paris Saint-Germain Jersey . -- Claudio Bieler hadnt scored since early September, and not from the run of play since mid-July. http://www.parissaintgermainfcstore.com/Women-Romain-Habran-Paris-Saint-Germain-Jersey/ .ca NHL Power Rankings for the second straight week, ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche.There was a very interesting signing made by the Chicago Cubs earlier this week when they came to terms with their budding slugger, first baseman Anthony Rizzo on a seven-year deal worth $41 million, plus a club option for two more years that could keep Rizzo with the Cub through 2021. Rizzo is hitting .277 with nine homers and 29 runs batted in and is considered one of the main centrepieces of a rebuilding franchise. But heres the catch. Rizzo came into this season with less than a full year of Major League experiece, playing parts of two seasons with the Padres and the Cubs after being drafted by Boston and subsequently dealt to San Diego as part of the Adrian Gonzalez trade. If Rizzo continues to develop and blossom, this contract could be a bargain. There is a school of thought that since Rizzo won a battle against Hodgkins Lymphoma, a form of cancer, he felt it was better to secure his future now, rather than speculate as to what he could possibly make down the road, feeling nothing in life is truly guaranteed. Clearly sending a message to their long-suffering fans, the Cubs earlier locked up shortstop Starlin Castro. That brings us to the Blue Jays and Brett Lawrie. The Blue Jays high-octane third baseman is also 23-years-old and, like Rizzo, is in his third season in the Majors. Off to a slow start in part because of that rib cage muscle injury in the spring, Lawrie is only hitting .204 with four homers and 10 runs batted in. But his career numbers so far are remarkably similar to Rizzos, hitting .268 with 24 homers and 83 runs batted in with a .762 OPS. Over his career, Rizzo is batting .283 with 25 homers and 86 runs batted in with a .763 OPS. He has walked 62 times and struck out 142 times while Lawrie has walked 57 times and fanned 143 times. You might also argue Lawrie plays a tougher and more valuable defensive position. So the question becomes, should the Blue Jays be offering Lawrie the same kind of contract the Cubs gave Rizzo, and would Lawrie even want to lock himself in at this point? There really are no definitive answers. In the not-too-distant past, the Blue Jays tried to give their fans and possible free agents the same message the Cubs did to theirs by signing Vernon Wells and Alex Rios to significant long-term pacts. Neither worked out for the Blue Jays. Wells had injury issues and his production waas up and down and ultimately he was traded to the Angels. Alphonse Areola Jersey. Rios struggled with fan expectations, never lived up to what he was making and ultimately went to the White Sox on a waiver claim. Wells and Rios have both revamped their careers; Wells now with the Yankees and Rios still with Chicago. The Blue Jays are under no pressure to sign Lawrie since he wont be eligable for arbitration until 2015 and cant become a free agent until 2018. What Lawrie needs to do first and foremost is to stay healthy for a full season and realize the plate potential he flashed when he broke in with the club late in 2011. At that point , he looked like a star in the making. John Farrell, and now John Gibbons, have felt that Lawrie has the potential to be one of the great third basemen. But now doesnt seem to be the time for the Blue Jays to go down the same road as the Cubs. Important Stretch The Blue Jays are entering a very important two-week stretch in their schedule. Theyve won a season high four straight games and have scrambled back to .500 for the month of May at 7-7. But they are still seven games under .500 overall. Coming up, they have 10 straight games against the East, including three at New York this weekend against the division-leading Yankees, followed by seven at home, three against Tampa Bay and four against Baltimore. Going 4-6 or worse in these games is not an option. They need to go at least 6-4 to keep the momentum going and ensure they dont have a second straight losing month, which is usually the kiss of death. The hitting has come around, but the big question mark remains the health and consistency of the starting rotation. Great Deal Last July 27th, Milwaukee GM Doug Melvin pulled off what may go down as one of the greatest trades in franchise history. He swapped soon-to-be free agent Zack Greinke to the Angels for three prospects. One of those three turned out to be 23-year-old shortstop Jean (Gene) Segura, who is having an incredible rookie campaign with the Brewers, hitting .353 with seven homers and 18 RBIs and playing some great defence. Making the swap even worse for the Angels, Greinke opted to leave as a free agent and signed with the Dodgers where he gives LA an incredible 1-2 punch with lefty Clayton Kershaw. I wonder how long until the Brewers sign Segura to a long-term deal?

Sydney McLaughlin is going to make some SEC hurdlers very antsy for the next four years.

Harrison is a world-record holder in the 100 hurdles and on the teams coaching staff.Thats just where I felt more comfortable, McLaughlin told NJ.com.

If ever they start actually putting pictures beside words in the dictionary, the Blue Jays left-handers mug will appear beside “Consistency. http://www.officialrangersproshop.com/Rangers-Ron-Duguay-Adidas-Jersey/ . -- New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis is retiring after a 16-year career to become the goalie coach for the Los Angeles Galaxy. AUBURN, Ala. -- Before the Auburn Tigers even started fall camp, amid already diminished expectations, they lost their most productive player.Tigers coach Gus Malzahn dismissed tailback Jovon Robinson hours before the first practice, leaving a team already seeking a quarterback with another significant void in the backfield.How well those two jobs get filled will go a long way toward deciding whether Auburn and Malzahns fast-paced offense rebound strongly or continue going in the wrong direction.Malzahn said the leadership is as strong as any team hes had. Theyve got a chip on their shoulder and theyve got something to prove, he said.That starts with the offense, which ranked 110th in passing offense and 94th in total yards thanks largely to the struggles of quarterbacks Jeremy Johnson and Sean White. The result was just a pair of Southeastern Conference wins two seasons after winning a league title and making the national championship game.Robinson emerged as the top runner late in the season though Peyton Barber topped 1,000 yards. Malzahn did not elaborate on the reasons for his dismissal, but it leaves sophomore Kerryon Johnson as the only returning back who logged a carry last season. Fullback Kamryn Pettway has moved to tailback, and Johnson is joined by freshman Kam Martin, a late addition who was released from his scholarship with Baylor.Weve been one of the better rushing teams in our league, I guess, for six years and well continue to be that, Malzahn said.Theyre going to need to be strong on the ground again with no established quarterback and having to replace two of the top three players in an already-thin receiving corps.Defensively, the line is well-stocked with highly rated recruits, including tackle Montravius Adams and end Carl Lawson, who has star potential but has battled injury problems. Guards Alex Kozan and Braden Smith anchor the offfense. Tanner Glass Jersey. Graduate transfer T.J. Neal, who started 25 games for Illinois the past two seasons, joins Tre Williams at linebacker. Safety Rudy Ford has led the Tigers in tackles two straight years and cornerback Carlton Davis had a promising freshman season.SEASON OPENEROpening with national runner-up Clemson and quarterback Deshaun Watson, a Heisman Trophy finalist, is a huge challenge for a team trying to rebuild in a number of areas. The good news is its the first of five straight home games.WHOS THE QB? Junior college transfer John Franklin III is trying to challenge Johnson and White, who both had uninspiring stints as the starter last season. Franklin is the biggest running threat, but never won the starting job at either Florida State or junior college and has little experience. Multiple receivers from a strong signing class at the position will also have to step up in the passing game.STEELES DEFENSEKevin Steele is the teams third defensive coordinator in as many years and fourth in five seasons. The veteran former LSU, Clemson and Alabama coordinator is one of five new assistants on Malzahns staff.PREDICTIONThe Tigers have been at their best when outsiders arent expecting much from them -- and at their worst when theyre drawing loads of preseason buzz. After two straight disappointing seasons, they fall in the former category now while picked toward the bottom of the SEC West. There are a few games that seem like toss-ups, but 7-5 seems like a reasonable outcome. To blow past that win total would require improved quarterback play from last season and strides from the defense, plus the emergence of Kerryon Johnson or another tailback as a reliable go-to runner.---AP college football website: collegefootball.ap.org 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 ' ' ' 
Iain Fyfe wont rule out a long-term commitment to the Newcastle Jets after sealing his A-League comeback despite not having played professionally in two years. Jake Gardiner Jersey .The 34-year-old centre-back is poised to make his debut for the Jets in Sundays F3 Derby against Central Coast after agreeing to an injury replacement deal on Friday.He has been brought in for Daniel Mullen, who will miss most of the next two months with a knee injury, while captain Nigel Boogaard is also sidelined for six weeks after suffering an ankle injury in last Thursdays loss to Melbourne City.Best known for his time with Sydney FC and Adelaide United, Fyfe hasnt played since winning the South Australian NPL grand final in September with Campbelltown City.But he says he still feels fit enough to contribute and may even play out the season if the opportunity arises.I just see it how Ive always seen my career - especially when you get to your thirties. You play game by game, Fyfe told reporters on Friday.Very cliche, I know ... but if anything comes from that Ill be happy to look into that for sure.Its all confidence. Bodywise, I might be thirty-four but Ive got the body of a 24-year-old.I know that, because in terms of injuries and soft tissue stuff, Ive never had a problem with things like that.And my minds fresh, I feel young, I feel good. I just need to get that sharpness back, that match fitness, but thatll come.Fyfe is expected to start in the centre of defence against the Mariners alongside Ben Kantarovski, who has made an early return from a knee injury, and should inject some much-needed experience into a side that hasnt fielded the same back four twice this season.Coach Mark Jones is hopeful the veteran can last at least an hour.As for the prospects of a more permanent deal for Fyfe: If he does well, certainly.

The head of USA Boxing came out swinging Tuesday with an open letter to Tyson -- a former Olympic hopeful himself -- that accuses the former heavyweight champion of trying to poach fighters who might be candidates for the U. SAN FRANCISCO -- Manager Walt Weiss certainly wants to get Colorados offensive woes figured out in a hurry.Nolan Arenado hit two doubles, but the run-starved Rockies lost their season-high sixth straight game and fourth in a row held to one or fewer runs with a 3-1 defeat at the hands of the San Francisco Giants on Monday.I thought our approach was better, we swung the bats better, but not well enough to put together a big inning, said Weiss, who before the game noted, Im not going to panic because we had a poor offensive series.The Rockies have lost their last three July 4 games and are 0-4 on Independence Day in San Francisco.Jake Peavy shut down Colorado and saved a taxed and tired Giants bullpen, backed by Angel Pagans two-run home and a solo shot from Buster Posey.Colorado loaded the bases in the second on Ryan Raburns one-out double, a single by Mark Reynolds and Nick Hundleys walk before Peavy was called for a balk to force in the games first run.That was it for the Rockies.I think the tendency is for guys who press to do too much and maybe some guys take uncharacteristic swings, pitchers feel like they have to go out there and be perfect, Reynolds said. Its a frustrating place to be as a team, but Ive been on teams where you go through these kinds of stretches and then all of a sudden something clicks and you go on a roll.San Francisco got that first run right back on Poseys 10th homer. Pagan, back in his old spot batting leadoff and playing center field in place of the injured Denard Span, connected for his fourth home run in the third against Tyler Anderson (0-3).The left-hander, making his fifth career start, allowed three runs and four hits in six innings while facing the Giants for the first time. He is still looking for first major league win.Hes done a nice job each time out for us, Weiss said. Unfortunately we havent been able to get him a win, but he put us in a position to win.Peavy (5-7) struck out six over 6 2/3 innings to bounce back from his third-shortest outing of the season. He left to a standing ovation and tipped his cap while exiting in the seventh after a two-out single by pinch-hitter Cristhian Adames. Giants right fielder Mac Williamson made a beautiful diving catch to start the inning.Santiago Casilla piitched the ninth for his 20th save in 24 chances. Wendel Clark Jersey. ANGEROUS ARENADOArenado is batting .378 (17 for 45) with three home runs, 18 RBI, eight doubles, a triple and eight runs scored in 11 games against the Giants this season -- so keeping his hits inside the fences and without an RBI counted as a good day for San Franciscos pitchers.Weve helped make every one of his cases, Gold Glove, batting title, all of the above, Peavy said.TRAINERS ROOMUmpires: Home plate umpire Gerry Davis -- with a history of concussions -- was hit three times, twice in the mask and then in the right arm in the fifth with Peavy on the mound. He stayed in the game. Umpire supervisor Ed Montague went to check on him after the fourth and trainers also examined him on the field.Rockies: Rookie SS Trevor Story was back in the starting lineup for first time in four games. The All-Star candidate bruised his right middle finger after getting hit by a pitch on June 26. He came into Sundays game against the Dodgers in the seventh inning on a double switch. ... RHP Adam Ottavino, out for more than two months with elbow soreness, joined the team Monday after rehab stints at Single-A Modesto and Triple-A Albuquerque. The Rockies closer could be activated before the All-Star break.Giants: RHP Sergio Romo was reinstated from the 60-day DL list after being sidelined since April 11 with an elbow injury. He retired one batter in the seventh for his fifth appearance all year. ... Span missed his fourth straight game with a stiff neck and received trigger-point injections. ... 2B Joe Panik is unlikely to return from a concussion until after the All-Star break.UP NEXTRockies: RHP Tyler Chatwood (8-4, 3.15 ERA) is set to come off the DL from a strained middle back that landed him on the DL on June 19. He is 1-1 against the Giants this season.Giants: LHP Madison Bumgarner (9-4, 2.20), a strong candidate to earn his fourth straight All-Star bid Tuesday, looks to build on his 12-6 career record against the Rockies in 24 starts. The ace is batting .246 (14 for 57) with four of his 13 career home runs -- including a grand slam -- and 15 RBI vs. Colorado.

Collingwood have made their pitch to Michael Hurley, joining several AFL clubs in waiting for the banned Essendon defenders decision.Hurley is contracted to the Bombers for the 2017 season but has become the most in-demand player on the market.The Magpies this week followed Western Bulldogs and St Kilda in going public with their desire to sign Hurley.Several other clubs are also interested in the 26-year-old.There remains a chance the disillusioned defender will recommit to the Bombers, having skipped this season as part of doping sanctions.Hes had a bit of think time. Im sure well become more aware of that over the coming weeks, Buckley said on Tuesday.Were really keen on him. He hasnt said no.Were really sensitive and understanding of the position he finds himself in with his current club.Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge echoed Buckleys thoughts, saying everyone should be sensitive to the Bombers plight.I wont be saying any more publicly (on Hurley), he said.Because I just think its a little bit disrespectful to Essendons situation.Adam Treloar and James Aish were both traded to Collingwood last year after nomiinating it as their club of choice, with the young midfielders impressed by a range of factors. Adidas Lightning Jerseys. Buckley didnt reveal what carrots the Magpies used while selling the club to Hurleys manager Paul Connors.Its up to the individual to work out what mix hes looking for. Buckley said.The Magpies offloaded a future first-round draft pick to secure Treloar in 2015, with Buckley conceding that will make it harder to agree on a suitable trade for Hurley.Theres sensitivities around that, we value all of our players but our job is to give the club the best chance of success, he said.We want the best talent to come to us.Bombers coach John Worsfold has expressed confidence throughout the year that Hurley will recommit.Essendon midfielder David Zaharakis, who has played alongside Hurley since they were children, is unsure of the backmans plans.Hopefully he makes a decision in the next one or two weeks Zaharakis told radio station RSN927.It is difficult, you dont want to put pressure on.

Former Northampton manager Chris Wilder has taken over at Sheffield United following Nigel Adkins dismissal. Alfredo Talavera Jersey . The 48-year-old Wilder, a former United full-back, still lives in Sheffield and will be joined at Bramall Lane by his Northampton assistant Alan Knill.  Wilder led Northampton to the League Two title this season Wilder, who on Wednesday ended negotiations with Charlton over their managerial vacancy, led Northampton to the League Two title after a 24-match unbeaten run. Speaking on behalf of Uniteds joint owners, Kevin McCabe told the club website: We are delighted to appoint Chris, he has a fantastic reputation. He understands the ethos of our club and is a modern 21st century manager.We are aware that Chris is popular with the supporters, however, this is not a sentimental appointment, he has a proven track record and is hungry to bring success to the Blades. Che Adams (right) was one of few bright spots in a disappointing campaign for the Blades He has a vision of success, knows what is required by the supporters and we will assist him as much as we can. Early talks have been positive and we look forward to a new era at Bramall Lane.Wilder, who has signed a three-year deal, said: A lot of supporters already know me and those who dont will soon realise that I am loyal, hard-working, straight-talking, thorough and whole-hearted in everything that I do.Obviously, people know my connection with the club as a supporter and former player and I want Bramall Lane to return to be an intimidating place - I dont want the players to feel it is a burden, playing in front of 20,000 fans.I understand the club, not just the playing side, but from the board to the Academy, including the key personnel such as Travis Binnion, John Dungworth and Mick Wadsworth, who have all enjoyed success this season. Sheffield United have called time on Adkins after 12 months Adkins was appointed United boss only last summer after Nigel Clough was dismissed following a failed League One play-off campaign. He was tasked with leading United back to the Championship for the first time since 2011, but won just 18 of his 46 matches in charge. United ended the season in 11th spot, their lowest finish since being relegated to the third tier in 2011, eight points behind the play-off positions.I am proud and honoured to have been the manager of Sheffield United but saddened to leave after just one season, Adkins said.  I am naturally very disappointed not to be able to continue the good work going on behind the scenes, which I am confident will be of benefit to the club going forward. I wish the club and the supporters the best of luck for the future.Adkins assistant manager Andy Crosby and first-team coach Dean Wilkins have also left the club.

He took 4-68 in the second warm-up game but it wasnt enough to earn him a spot in the first Test - his county captain, Gareth Batty, getting the nod instead. He had a slow start to the 2016 County Championship season after sustaining a fractured thumb on the day he was named in Englands Test squad to face Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates, in September 2015, but grew into the summer to finish with 22 scalps at 31.40 apiece. The undoubted highlight came in mid-June when he claimed 6-16 in 6.2 overs to skittle Nottinghamshire.The previous summer he bagged 44 wickets in the County Championship, with three five-fors and a best of 6-30 against Gloucestershire in June, to help his side earn promotion to the top flight.

The Berkshire-born players solitary ton came against Derbyshire in 2015 - the left-hander notching 439 Championship runs this term with two fifties, at an average of 27.Havent I seen him in an England shirt before?You have if you are a devout watcher of England Under-19 cricket or if you saw Englands blink-and-youll miss it one-dayer with Ireland in Malahide in May 2015. Ansari was one of five ODI debutants - alongside Surrey pal Jason Roy, James Vince, David Willey and Mark Wood - in a game that lasted just 18 overs due to inclement weather in Dublin. Ansari was not chucked the ball after stand-in England skipper James Taylor chose to bowl, so had to content himself with jogging around the outfield and high-fiving his team-mates as the visitors reduced Ireland to 56-4. The Surrey man made his ODI debut for England against Ireland in May Is he a man for the big occasion?Ansari showed his skills while playing for Cambridge University against Surrey in 2011, taking 5-33 including the prize wicket of Kevin Pietersen, and then shone on his T20 debut for his county. He biffed 30 from 18 balls against Essex after coming in at No 7 with Surrey in a dicey position and then bowled four frugal overs to help tee up the sides 43-run win before duly being named Man of the Match.Hes somewhat of a bright spark, isnt he?Ansari has a double-first from Cambridge in politics and sociology and is currently writing his masters, a 40,000-word piece on the American souths civil rights movement in the 1960s. An adept piano player to boot, Ansari has refused to rule out a PhD in future. What do they say about him?Alastair Cook: Clearly he has the ability to take the ball away from the right-handers. One thing Ive seen in the nets is he can bowl at good pace with good control. It will be really interesting to see how he goes. He can also bat as well, which is good.Mark Butcher: England need to find out if Zafar Ansari is able to do a job as a left-arm spinner, to see if they have another bowler capable of taking the ball away from Indias myriad of right-handed batsmen.Watch the second Test between Bangladesh and England live on Sky Sports 2 from 4.30am on Friday.
