Rob Nelson of ESPN Stats & Information revisits the worst bad beats from the weekends gambling action. Custom Nike Baseball Jerseys Online .Closing lines are courtesy of Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, and pick percentages are via Wunderdog Sports.Saturday?Kansas State Wildcats at Baylor BearsClosing line: Over/under 59Just less than 25 percent of the action was on the under in this one, and those bettors looked to be on the winning side. The game was scoreless with less than seven minutes left in the second quarter. Even after three touchdowns in final 6:43 of the half, the under was still in good shape with Kansas State leading 14-7. However, after a slow start, the points started coming bunches.?Unfortunately for those on the under, Baylor couldnt stop the Wildcats in the second half, specifically Alex Barnes. Kansas States freshman running back racked up four touchdowns after halftime, with the fourth score pushing the total over with 3:08 left in the game. There were 42 points scored in the second half, including 21 in the final 7:28.Final score: Kansas State 42, Baylor 21 (Game goes over)Virginia Cavaliers at Georgia Tech Yellow JacketsClosing line: Georgia Tech -10.5Despite entering the game with a 2-8 record, Virginia outplayed Georgia Tech for most of the way on Saturday, outgaining the Yellow Jackets by 88 yards, possessing the ball for 38:37 and coming up with 17 more first downs.Still, three late turnovers ultimately cost those who took Virginia and the points, including a back-breaker with just more than four minutes left. With the Cavaliers trailing 24-17, Matt Johns was picked off by Georgia Techs Lance Austin, who returned it 24 yards to the house. This marked the fifth ATS loss for Virginia in its past six games.Final score: Georgia Tech 31, Virginia 17 (Georgia Tech covers)?SundayJacksonville Jaguars at Detroit LionsClosing line: Lions -5The Jaguars came into this game with a 7-2 ATS record as an underdog of more than a field goal since last season. That trend looked like it was about to continue, until an excruciating final drive by the Lions. After a Jacksonville punt with a little more than eight minutes left, Detroit had the ball and a 23-19 lead. The Lions would proceed to go a drive that must have made anyone who bet the Jaguars go crazy.Two plays in particular are still haunting those bettors. On fourth-and-2 from the Jacksonville 46-yard line,?SenDerrick Marks?was penalized for encroachment to extend Detroits drive. The other play came on third-and-5 from the Jacksonville 36-yard line, when the Lions were a first down away from being able to run out the clock. They got the first down, but Theo Riddick stopped the clock by going out of bounds. Four plays later, Matt Prater nailed a 43-yard field goal to put Detroit up seven with 22 seconds left. The Jaguars were outscored 10-0 in the final quarter.Final score: Lions 26, Jaguars 19 (Lions cover)?Chicago Bears at New York GiantsClosing line: Over/under 41.5After opening at 47.5, the over/under for this game moved all the way down to 41.5 by kickoff. Heavy winds were expected at Metlife Stadium, and that turned out to be a huge factor in this one. Playing without key offensive starters in Alshon Jeffery and Kyle Long, the Bears started strong, scoring on their first three possessions. Chicago led 16-9 at halftime, with the total on pace to go over.In the second half, the Giants scored touchdowns on their first two possessions and took a 22-16 lead with 6:49 left in third quarter. Why the weird score? Well, the teams combined to miss three extra-point attempts, including two by former Chicago kicker?Robbie Gould. Connor Barth?-- the Bears current leg -- added a missed field goal attempt early in the fourth, and that proved to be the last scoring opportunity for either team. The game ended with a 21:49 scoring drought, causing bettors who took the over to fall 3.5 points short of cashing their tickets.?Final score: Giants 22, Bears 16 (Total goes under)?Miami Dolphins at Los Angeles RamsClosing line: Pick emJared Goffs first start will be a tough one to forget if you took the Rams. Los Angeles led 10-0 and was driving into Dolphins territory late in the game. Faced with a fourth-and-1 with 6:45 left, coach Jeff Fisher elected to kick a field goal instead of going for it. At this point in the game, ESPNs win probability model gave the Rams more than a 97 percent chance to win.Thats when it all went downhill. Greg Zuerlein missed that 48-yard field goal attempt off the left upright, and then Miamis offense came alive. Ryan Tannehill led a pair of touchdown drives in the final minutes to give the Dolphins an improbable win. Not only will Fisher be blamed by those who bet on his Rams on Sunday, but the loss marked the 162nd of his career, tying him with Tom Landry for the second-most defeats in NFL history.Final score: Dolphins 14, Rams 10 (Dolphins cover) Custom Nike Baseball Jerseys Sale .

Hopefully, I am not going to find it or there is nothing to find.Beholder, a 6-year-old, three-time Eclipse Award winner, will be making her 26th and final career start Friday.On paper, this is the best Distaff Ive ridden in, her jockey Gary Stevens said. Beholder is the best horse I have ever ridden.Trained by John Sadler, Stellar Wind has won seven of 11 career starts. She beat Beholder in her previous two starts under Victor Espinoza.She needs a good trip, Sadler said.

The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., has nothing but good things to say about former U.S. marine Liz (Girlrilla) Carmouche ahead of their co-main event Wednesday on the UFCs "Fight for the Troops" televised card in Fort Campbell, Ky. The last time Carson Wentz was preparing for the Cleveland Browns, he was studying up for facetime with head coach Hue Jackson and vice president Sashi Brown and preparing to sell himself as the future of a franchise that hasnt had a winning face at quarterback in decades.Cleveland decided in March that Wentz and Californias Jared Goff werent worthy of the No. 2 selection in the draft and moved the second pick to the Philadelphia Eagles. On Sunday, Wentz will make his NFL debut as a rookie starter for the Eagles against the visiting Browns in the regular-season opener for both teams.Everybody has their opinions. Listen, we went to North Dakota. We worked him out, Eagles first-year head coach Doug Pederson said of landing Wentz. We spent a lot of time with him like everybody that has drafted quarterbacks in the National Football League. If you dont spend time with those guys and come away feeling comfortable about your decisions, then you should probably look somewhere else. We just felt so comfortable at the Eagles to make the moves to go get Carson Wentz and felt very strong about the way we evaluated.Browns vice president Paul DePodesta said in April that Cleveland didnt view Wentz as a potential top-20 starting quarterback in the NFL.The Eagles doubled down last week, dealing away their incumbent starting quarterback, Sam Bradford, to the Minnesota Vikings. The deal recouped a first-round pick in 2017 for Philadelphia, and sped up the development plan for Wentz.Wentz was drafted behind Goff, who went No. 1 to the Los Angeles Rams, and goes head-to-head with former No. 2 pick Robert Griffin III on Sunday. Griffin, voted a team captain by teammates this week, signed a two-year deal after being released by the Washington Redskins in March.Jackson seems to believe the resurrection of Griffin is on schedule. He averaged 8.2 yards per completion and threw three TD passes in 38 total preseason attempts, also rushing for 40 yards on five carries. Perhaps most important, he enters Week 1 unscathed and moved further from durability questions that overshadowed a strong rookie season with the Redskins.Where Wentz stands in his progression from FCS powerhouse North Dakoota State to the NFL is far less certain. Jimmy Butler Jersey. While Griffin had 38 pass attempts in three games in August, a rib injury limited Wentz to 39 total snaps -- less than any quarterback drafted in the first four rounds in April. He averaged 3.9 yards per completion with none longer than 19 yards in exhibition games.A great opportunity for him. With the trade, it definitely sped up Carsons timetable to play, Pederson said, adding that Wentz was in the film room at Eagles headquarters at 5:45 a.m. Wednesday when the coach arrived. We are excited for that. He is ready to go. I have said all along and he is such a sharp guy. He studies. He pays attention to detail. It will be big for him from a preparation standpoint to really fully understand the gameplan and study the film and do the things that he did in college and what I have seen so far these last couple of days.Neither team limited its offseason makeover to changing head coaches and quarterbacks.Cleveland parted with outside linebacker Paul Kruger and lost center Alex Mack to the Atlanta Falcons in free agency, two locker-room leaders that cant be instantly replaced by the Browns wave of first- and second-year players.The Eagles traded high-priced cornerback Byron Maxwell to Miami in a deal that also included linebacker Kiko Alonso.Offensive tackle Lane Johnson is facing a 10-game suspension for alleged violation of the league performance-enhancing drugs policy.Wentz said Wednesday he is rolling with it, and even amidst the rapid pace of changes in Philadelphia, he feels prepared.Things changed around here pretty quickly. I think there were a lot of people that were surprised, but now, it is just move forward. Move forward, on to the next, Wentz said. Im ready for my turn. Im excited for it.Philadelphia is no stranger to Griffin, who has five starts in his career against the Eagles with a 98.3 passer rating.Wentz and Dallas Cowboys starter Dak Prescott are the only rookie quarterbacks in Week 1 starting lineups. Goff is expected to be inactive at San Francisco on Monday night. ' ' '

The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., has nothing but good things to say about former U.S. marine Liz (Girlrilla) Carmouche ahead of their co-main event Wednesday on the UFCs "Fight for the Troops" televised card in Fort Campbell, Ky. The last time Carson Wentz was preparing for the Cleveland Browns, he was studying up for facetime with head coach Hue Jackson and vice president Sashi Brown and preparing to sell himself as the future of a franchise that hasnt had a winning face at quarterback in decades.Cleveland decided in March that Wentz and Californias Jared Goff werent worthy of the No. 2 selection in the draft and moved the second pick to the Philadelphia Eagles. On Sunday, Wentz will make his NFL debut as a rookie starter for the Eagles against the visiting Browns in the regular-season opener for both teams.Everybody has their opinions. Listen, we went to North Dakota. We worked him out, Eagles first-year head coach Doug Pederson said of landing Wentz. We spent a lot of time with him like everybody that has drafted quarterbacks in the National Football League. If you dont spend time with those guys and come away feeling comfortable about your decisions, then you should probably look somewhere else. We just felt so comfortable at the Eagles to make the moves to go get Carson Wentz and felt very strong about the way we evaluated.Browns vice president Paul DePodesta said in April that Cleveland didnt view Wentz as a potential top-20 starting quarterback in the NFL.The Eagles doubled down last week, dealing away their incumbent starting quarterback, Sam Bradford, to the Minnesota Vikings. The deal recouped a first-round pick in 2017 for Philadelphia, and sped up the development plan for Wentz.Wentz was drafted behind Goff, who went No. 1 to the Los Angeles Rams, and goes head-to-head with former No. 2 pick Robert Griffin III on Sunday. Griffin, voted a team captain by teammates this week, signed a two-year deal after being released by the Washington Redskins in March.Jackson seems to believe the resurrection of Griffin is on schedule. He averaged 8.2 yards per completion and threw three TD passes in 38 total preseason attempts, also rushing for 40 yards on five carries. Perhaps most important, he enters Week 1 unscathed and moved further from durability questions that overshadowed a strong rookie season with the Redskins.Where Wentz stands in his progression from FCS powerhouse North Dakoota State to the NFL is far less certain. Jimmy Butler Jersey. While Griffin had 38 pass attempts in three games in August, a rib injury limited Wentz to 39 total snaps -- less than any quarterback drafted in the first four rounds in April. He averaged 3.9 yards per completion with none longer than 19 yards in exhibition games.A great opportunity for him. With the trade, it definitely sped up Carsons timetable to play, Pederson said, adding that Wentz was in the film room at Eagles headquarters at 5:45 a.m. Wednesday when the coach arrived. We are excited for that. He is ready to go. I have said all along and he is such a sharp guy. He studies. He pays attention to detail. It will be big for him from a preparation standpoint to really fully understand the gameplan and study the film and do the things that he did in college and what I have seen so far these last couple of days.Neither team limited its offseason makeover to changing head coaches and quarterbacks.Cleveland parted with outside linebacker Paul Kruger and lost center Alex Mack to the Atlanta Falcons in free agency, two locker-room leaders that cant be instantly replaced by the Browns wave of first- and second-year players.The Eagles traded high-priced cornerback Byron Maxwell to Miami in a deal that also included linebacker Kiko Alonso.Offensive tackle Lane Johnson is facing a 10-game suspension for alleged violation of the league performance-enhancing drugs policy.Wentz said Wednesday he is rolling with it, and even amidst the rapid pace of changes in Philadelphia, he feels prepared.Things changed around here pretty quickly. I think there were a lot of people that were surprised, but now, it is just move forward. Move forward, on to the next, Wentz said. Im ready for my turn. Im excited for it.Philadelphia is no stranger to Griffin, who has five starts in his career against the Eagles with a 98.3 passer rating.Wentz and Dallas Cowboys starter Dak Prescott are the only rookie quarterbacks in Week 1 starting lineups. Goff is expected to be inactive at San Francisco on Monday night. ' ' ' 
Revenge returns to Call of Duty after a hiatus that lasted a year and a half. Shareef Miller Womens Jersey . The organization has acquired Adam KiLLa Sloss, Marcus MiRx Carter, Chance Maux Moncivaez and Jamal Whea7s Lee.When I was first approached by this roster, I was shocked that a team of this caliber was still available, states Mike Del Brocco, Owner and CEO of Revenge. Ive been around in the CoD scene for a long time, so having a chance to work with Killa and Mirx really excited me as I remember their success from as far back as Black Ops II.KiLLa and MiRx were particularly dominant in CoD: Black Ops II and were regular contenders in CoD: Ghosts. From 2013 to 2015, they won the 2013 edition of the Call of Duty Championship, and they tallied six first-place finishes in major tournaments.Joining them are veteran Whea7s and the up-and-coming Maux. Whea7s has been a regular in the scene since 2013 and helped Automatic Reload score fifth place in the 2015 Call of Duty Championship, and Maux scored three top eight finishes in Major League Gaming GameBattles 500 Series throughout June and July 2016.All four of these guys have shown they are incredibly skilled and they bring a lot to Revenge with their relentless passion to succeed and be the best, adds Del Brocco.

By now, Meb Keflezighi is familiar with every patch of asphalt on the New York City Marathon route. Stephen Curry Jersey .He has run the race 10 times, finishing as high as first and as far back as 23rd. Its a race he holds dear for his 2009 victory -- coming at a time when some believed his career was over -- and for the way the city has opened its arms to him, time and again. Fans have cheered his every stride through the five boroughs. He calls it the marathon of the world for its diverse field and crowds.So, hes excited to return to New York for Sundays race. This time, hes even guaranteed a lead position.For the first time since 2012, Keflezighi, 41, wont be running. Instead, hell be one of the races grand marshals, along with his U.S. marathon teammates from this summers Olympics. Hell be in the lead vehicle with a chance to see the race unfold without breaking a sweat.Its going to be a whole different perspective, he said.Related story from Competitor.com: How to watch the NYC MarathonRelated story from Competitor.com: Molly Huddle ready for her marathon debutThese days, Keflezighi is taking some time to look at everything from a new angle. After competing in his fourth Olympics, hes transitioning into a retirement that could take many shapes. Its a transition that will take a while.He plans to run two more marathons, both in 2017. That would give him 26 career marathon finishes.Twenty-six marathons for the distance, he said, referring to the races 26.2-mile length. And Im also going to be 42 years old. In terms of running international, its 42 kilometers and 195 meters. So, 42 years old and 26 marathons in honor of the distance.He said nothing is official on which races hell run. Hes hopeful they will be Boston and New York. A finale in New York would be a fitting farewell. He made his marathon debut there in 2002.But were still working out the details, he said.Keflezighi will continue to train and run through next year and beyond, but he knows its time for his marathon career to end. After that, hell run half-marathons, 15Ks, 10Ks and other shorter distances, while putting most of his attention on his family, his Meb Foundation and business and charitable interests.Ive been running 26 years, he said. I just dont want to do competitive marathons where people, believe it or not, still expect me to win. Even though Im 41, 42, they want me to win. But expectations, external and internal -- even though I have the desire to do those things, go to Rio, get the gold -- I wish it were that simple. Everything has to click. Sometimes, you just have to be thankful for the things you have earned.No unturned stonesWhat Keflezighi has earned has been remarkable.Hes the only marathoner to have won an Olympic medal (silver in 2004) while also winning at Boston and New York. He was on the 2000, 2004, 2012 and 2016 U.S. Olympic teams. He won 23 national championships at various distances. And he won four NCAA titles at UCLA before turning pro in 1998.My career has been more special than I could have ever imagined, he said. Im grateful for that.He said theres no unturned stones in his marathon career. He has accomplished more than he dreamed. His only goal for his final two marathons will be to finish in the top 10. They wont be ceremonial strolls.I dont want to say, Ahh, I just finished it, he said. I want to finish strong and be as competitive as I can be.Keflezighi, who came to the United States with his family from war-torn Eritrea at the age of 12, discovered running as a middle schooler in San Diego. He then became a standout at San Diego High School and earned a scholarship to UCLA. He excelled at cross country and the 5,000 and 10,000 meters. He made his first Olympic team in the 10,000 and competed in the 2000 Sydney Summer Games. The following year, he set a U.S. 10K record (27:13.98).It wasnt until 2002 that he ran his first marathon, finishing New York in 2:12:35, good for ninth place.At the time, he said he never wanted to do a marathon again -- yet he actually had found his calling. Now he laughs when sharing his only regret: What I now know, I wish I knew then.Whats next?Keflezighis whole focus earlier this year was on making the Rio de Janeiro Olympics and doing as well as possible. He qualified by finishing second in the U.S. trials in Los Angeles in February, running 2:12:20. At 40, he became the oldest American marathoner to qualify for the summer games.He went into the Olympics feeling strong, but he got sick on race day and had to stop several times to throw up. He willed himself to continue. Then, as he approached the finish, he slipped on the wet pavement and fell face down across the line -- where he promptly did three pushups to show he was fine, got up and celebrated his 33rd-place finish in 2:16:46.Though disappointed, hes proud of what he did in Brazil. One reason he wanted to go to a fourth Olympics was so his three daughters (ages 10, 8 and 6) would have a memory of their father in the Rio Games.They were there at the finish with wife Yordanos, brother Hawi and longtime coach Bob Larsen.They remember it, Keflezighi said. That was the whole goal. My youngest daughter does remember. When she was asked what was the best part of the summer, she said, When Daddy competed in Rio.Time with his wife and daughters is at the top of Keflezighis wish list now, as he transitions into retirement. He said travel and training have taken too much time from them.He hopes to blend family time with the work he does for the Meb Foundation, which is focused on helping children to be healthy and successful. Also on that list is doing public speaking and coaching. Hes interested in coaching every type of athlete, from collegiate standouts to men and women who simply want to complete in a half-marathon.Keflezighi said he doesnt want to be known as just a fine runner but also as a positive citizen and contributor to society.And Keflezighis post-marathon world also will be filled with appearances and work for his many sponsors. Last weekend, he was at a half-marathon in Sonoma, California, mingling with runners for a company that makes jerky products. Included among his other sponsors are companies that make shoes, printers, nutrition bars, compression socks, sunglasses and tires.Though he wont be running in Sundays New York City Marathon, hes still having a busy race week. On Tuesday, he received an award from famed distance runner Grete Waitzs AKTIV Against Cancer organization for his philanthropic work, and hell take part in a news conference with the grand marshals Thursday.Twenty-four marathons down, two to go. Theres still more work to do.It is my plan, said Keflezighi, laughing, but sometimes you wonder why you come up with these things. Golden State Warriors Jerseys .

The Los Angeles Rams and New York Giants are going to Twickenham Stadium on Oct. Air Max 720 Australia . 23, bringing American football to the largest rugby union venue in the world.It will be the 16th NFL game played in London, continuing a series which began in 2007, but its the first matchup that wont be staged at Wembley Stadium.The teams figure to have plenty of elbow room, as rugby union requires a larger field than American football. The pitch at Twickenham measures 125 meters in length and 70 meters in width (approximately 137 yards by 77 yards), while a regulation gridiron is 120 yards long (including end zones) and 53? yards wide.The reverse will be true when the New Zealand All Blacks rugby squad plays Ireland at Soldier Field, home of the NFLs Chicago Bears, on Nov. 5.These events got us thinking about previous instances of athletic events being contested in venues typically reserved for other sports. A brief history:NFLAlthough the NFL didnt officially adopt a championship game until the 1933 season, the Chicago Bears and Portsmouth Spartans played in a de facto title game the previous year when a postseason game was added to break a tie atop the standings.But what made the game truly notable was the venue. The Bears played their home games at Wrigley Field from 1921-1970, but frigid weather in December 1932 led the teams to move the season finale indoors to Chicago Stadium, home of the NHLs Blackhawks. The playing field was 80 yards long and 45 yards wide, and only one goalpost was used. Field goals werent allowed, and sod was brought in to cover a dirt surface already in place for a circus appearance.The Bears won 9-0 in front of a crowd of 11,198. The only touchdown involved two future Hall of Famers, with Bronko Nagurski throwing a 2-yard pass to Red Grange.College footballMany decades ago, it wasnt unusual for college football to be played in baseball stadiums and other irregular venues -- many classics between Army and Notre Dame were played at the first Yankee Stadium in the 1920s, 30s and 40s. But in recent years, it has returned as a trendy quirk.Some notable instances:? Tennessee defeated Virginia Tech last month in front of 156,990 fans at Bristol Motor Speedway. The following week, East Tennessee State beat Western Carolina at the same venue, attracting a modest crowd of 13,863 -- and leaving approximately 143,000 seats empty.? Illinois beat Northwestern at Wrigley Field in 2010. With the right-field wall less than a foot from the back of one end zone, all offensive drives were run in the same direction. MLBs Chicago Cubs had added additional seating since the NFLs Bears last played at Wrigley decades earlier, which tightened the configuration for football games.? Notre Dame survived an upset attempt by Boston College in 2015 at Fenway Park, home of MLBs Boston Red Sox.? Army has played four regular-season games at the new Yankee Stadium -- a loss to Notre Dame in 2010, a win over Connecticut in 2014 and losses to Rutgers in 2011 and 2015.? A number of bowl games have been staged at baseball stadiums as MLB teams search for revenue during the dormant winter months. Among them are the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium, the St. Petersburg Bowl at Tropicana Field, the Miami Beach Bowl at Marlins Park, the defunct Seattle Bowl at Safeco Field and -- take a deep breath here -- the former Diamond Walnut San Francisco/Emerald/Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl at AT&T Park.TennisIn the much-hyped Battle of the Sexes, Billie Jean King vanquished outspoken male counterpart Bobby Riggs in straight sets at the Astrodome in September 1973. The match drew 30,472 fans in person and tens of millions of television viewers around the world.Andre Agassi and Roger Federer fearlessly took a precarious perch 692 feet above the Persian Gulf to smash a few shots on the helipad of the Burj Al Arab hotel in 2005 to promote the ATP Dubai Duty Free Open.NBAA number of teams have played homes games in domes better suited for football and baseball over the years, including the Detroit Pistons (Silverdome), Seattle SuperSonics (Kingdome), Minnesota Timberwolves (Metrodome), San Antonio Spurs (Alamodome), Toronto Raptors (Rogers Centre, formerly known as SkyDome) and Atlanta Hawks (Georgia Dome).The NBA has held five outdoor games in its history -- all of which have been exhibitions involving the Phoenix Suns. The Suns and Milwaukee Bucks played twice in 1972 at Hiram Bithorn Stadium, a baseball venue in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Decades later, the Suns played three preseason games at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Southern California -- against the Denver Nuggets in 2008, Golden State Warriors in 2009 and Dallas Mavericks in 2010.College basketballA landmark event occurred in January 1968, when the University of Houston played host to UCLA at the Astrodome, home of MLBs Astros and the NFLs Oilers. It was called the Game of the Century, as Lew Alcindor and the No. 1 Bruins put a 47-game winning streak on the line against Elvin Hayes and the No. 2 Cougars. Houston won 71-69 in front of 52,693 fans. UCLA returned to the Astrodome in March 1971 for the Final Four and won an NCAA championship.The Final Four was later held at other football or multipurpose stadiums in New Orleans (1982, 1987, 1993), Seattle (1984, 1989, 1995), Indianapolis (1991) and Minneapolis (1992), and it has been staged exclusively in domes since 1997.Syracuse University has played its home games at the Carrier Dome, which seats nearly 50,000 and is home to the schools football team, since the multipurpose facility opened in 1980.In recent years, two college games were staged aboard aircraft carriers. North Carolina beat Michigan State in November 2011, with President Obama in attendance atop the USS Carl Vinson in Coronado, California. One year later and about a mile away, Syracuse defeated San Diego State aboard the USS Midway in San Diego. SDSU also played an outdoor game in 2015 at Petco Park, home of MLBs San Diego Padres, losing to crosstown rival University of San Diego.BaseballThe Los Angeles Dodgers played their first four seasons on the West Coast, 1958-61, at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Cramming a baseball field into the football home of the USC Trojans and Los Angeles Rams turned out to be an odd proposition. Even with a 42-foot-tall screen in play, the left-field wall stood only 251 feet from home plate, creating an attractive target for batters. Straightaway center field was 425 feet deep, and right-center was 440. The Dodgers beat the Chicago White Sox in the 1959 World Series, drawing more than 92,000 fans to each of the three games played at the Coliseum.Similarly, the Texas Rangers have played several exhibition games in recent years at the Alamodome in San Antonio, where the right-field wall is only 280 feet from home plate.The Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks opened the 2014 season with two games in Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground, where each game drew 38,000-plus fans. The dimensions were fairly typical, at 328 feet down the foul lines and 400 to straightaway center, given the space available on the larger, circular cricket pitch.We didnt forget about the fabled Polo Grounds in New York, which boasted arguably the strangest dimensions in baseball history -- well under 300 feet down the lines and as deep as 505 to straightaway center. Alas, the odd configuration wasnt a product of baseball being crammed into a mismatched venue. The stadium name was a misnomer, having been simply carried over from a previous iteration that was indeed built for polo.HockeyWhen the University of Michigan and Michigan State ice hockey teams faced off in a football venue in October 2001, it was viewed as an intriguing novelty. Marketed as the Cold War, a crowd of 74,544 turned out to see a tie at Spartan Stadium.That game inspired the NHL to follow suit in November 2003, with the Montreal Canadiens defeating the Edmonton Oilers at Commonwealth Stadium, home of the Canadian Football Leagues Edmonton Eskimos. The game drew 700,000 ticket requests (actual attendance was 57,177) and the NHL began regularly scheduling outdoor games within a few years. Subsequent outdoor NHL games have been played at NFL stadiums in Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Chicago, New England and Santa Clara, California; at MLB ballparks in Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, New York, Washington and Denver; at the CFL venue in Calgary; and at the college football stadiums at Michigan and Minnesota.The largest crowd ever to see a hockey game, according to Guinness, was a rematch of the Cold War -- with Michigan beating Michigan State in The Big Chill at Michigan Stadium in December 2010. The announced attendance was 113,411, although Guinness later certified the total at 104,173.More than 105,000 tickets were sold to the NHL game at Michigan Stadium, where the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Detroit Red Wings in a shootout on Jan. 1, 2014, but Guinness couldnt confirm that the actual attendance topped the mark set there in 2010. Two months later, the Ottawa Senators defeated the Vancouver Canucks at BC Place, home of the CFLs British Columbia Lions. The stadiums retractable roof had to be closed because of rain for that one.What is now known as Tropicana Field was built to lure an MLB team, which it did when the Tampa Bay Devil Rays debuted in 1998, but the dome stadiums first major tenant was an NHL franchise. Starting in 1993-94, the Tampa Bay Lightning played their home games there for three seasons, when it was called the Thunderdome, and occasionally drew crowds in excess of 25,000. The Lightning set a record for highest attendance at a Stanley Cup playoff game in April 1996, drawing 28,183 fans to a game against the Philadelphia Flyers.Modified sportsSometimes the sports themselves are transformed to fit the venues:? Perhaps in the spirit of the Bears-Spartans 1932 NFL game, the Arena Football League launched with four teams in 1987. The sport is played indoors on a field approximately one-quarter the size of those used in regular football, with eight players per team on the field instead of the usual 11. With the exception of the suspended 2009 season, the AFL has operated continuously ever since.? Metro footy is a version of Australian rules football adapted to be played on American football fields. Nine players take the field for each team, as opposed to regular footy, where 18 players per side compete on much larger oval pitches.? Soccer gave birth to indoor soccer and futsal. Indoor soccer typically uses a surface about the size of a hockey rink, with six players per side, including the goalkeeper. Hockey-like dasher boards, which are in play, surround the field. Futsal can be played indoors or outdoors on a surface smaller than indoor soccer, with five players per side, including the goalkeeper. There are no walls in play.GolfIn 2015, Callaway Golf set up a temporary nine-hole, par-3 course at Petco Park. The course is scheduled to be open again Nov. 3-8 this year.Lastly, in what must unequivocally be the most unusual sports site in history, Apollo 14 astronaut Alan Shepard struck two golf balls with a 6-iron on the moon during the third manned lunar mission in February 1971.

The first Monday morning of the summer holidays, the sky lumpen - an unscheduled autumn duvet pulled hastily from the cupboard above. The roads are quiet with relief, the ruddy trudgers of sandwich-laden picnic-hampers down to a steady trickle along the Great Stone Road.In the separated pens of the Old Trafford nets in the hour before play, the Pakistan players practised. And practised. Azhar Ali, diligently forward, diligently back; the coaching staff, arms folded, nodding approvingly. In and out they alternated, like figures on a weather house, Mohammad Hafeez, Yasir Shah, lined up against the Lancashire academy bowlers sprightly-keen to show what they could do.Behind them, staring at helmets and backsides, trying to identify whose belonged to whom, stood the Monday morning spectators. Not a great number - 6,533 in all - but proper cricket fans these: who else would give up a days holiday in chilly late July to sit in bucket seats to watch the fourth day of a one-sided Test?The nets are funny things, as close as people get to the players, an obscure mini zoo where fans stare while players pretend theyre not there, fans lurk and players reach resolutely for their bats and hope to walk away to the safety of the dressing-room un-manhandled. A rite of passage nonetheless.From the nets, it was just a short journey round the ground to B Stand - just to the left of the media centre, and most pertinently next door to the Pakistan dressing-room. If you couldnt quite see Misbah-ul-Haq reaching out for an idle scratch, you could imagine it: every players jaunt up and down the steps that led to the pitch was wildly cheered.B stand then, a multicultural slice of the kind of English society that cricket often turns up by accident: a good-natured mixture of cold and unpickled British people hunched over packets of cheese and onion in a mixture of cagouls, neat beards, hijabs, a couple of skull caps and a pair of stars-and-stripes sunglasses.On a day slowly meandering along to its inevitable conclusion, the spectators entertained themselves with vuvuzelas and cracker blowers, chatter in Urdu and English, inflatable bananas and that sustaining culinary combination of a soggy 99 followed by a warming coffee.In the prime seats just metres away from the Pakistan dressing-room steps, sat three sisters, Kiran, 21, a pharmacy student, Amina, 18, about to embark on a dentistry course, and Sophia, 15, hair covered in bright hijabs and decorated with Pakistani fllag pins. Buy Air Max Australia. The three sisters had woken at seven oclock and piled into a big van the family had hired for the day. Eight people crammed in, bags full of picnic, over the way from Bolton, Rihanna and Calvin Harris blaring on the radio. They are cricket nuts, all of them, a Pakistan flag hangs outside their house and posters adorn the walls. Theyd brought along a roll of coloured paper with them, and intended to write some thoroughly inspirational posters.We watch Pakistan on TV, but this is the first time weve seen them live, Sophia said. We love their passion. We paid extra for these seats because we knew theyd be just next to the dressing room.She reaches for her sisters phone to show her selfies with the team just as England declare at 173 for 1: time for Pakistan to pull off a surprise win? Were just hoping it doesnt rain.Higher up in B stand were another group of family friends - two of them, Zohaib and Farukh, had driven down from Glasgow with their small sons. A five oclock wake-up and then a four hour drive with no stops. It wasnt great for the rest of them but I didnt want to be late, Zohaib said. Their friend Ali Usmani had come from Bolton too - via 16 years in Pakistan and 20 years in Holland. He and his wife had brought along their son.I tell him to support England, that you should support the country where you are brought up. He loves cricket, his favourites are Shane Warne and Shahid Afridi, but I tell him that education is the first priority.It was a first visit to Old Trafford for the sisters, for the Glaswegians, for Ali too. The first time you hesitate to come, he said, then the way is open. Good news for Lancashire, if there is good news in a Test crowd of six-and-a-half thousand - there is plenty of potential support out there if they can find a way to capitalise on it.As it was, Pakistan crept past their first innings, just. When Misbah played on for 35, the end was nigh, though a final flourish from a blazing Mohammad Amir gave his fans something to cheer about.And from there it was a trudge back to the car, bags empty, legs tired. For England fans, a triumphant afternoon. For Pakistan fans, an ultimately disappointing but potentially uplifting day at the cricket. For the Pakistan team, it is back to the coach and the drawing board - the next two Tests suddenly looming very large. ' ' ' 
Revenge returns to Call of Duty after a hiatus that lasted a year and a half. Shareef Miller Womens Jersey . The organization has acquired Adam KiLLa Sloss, Marcus MiRx Carter, Chance Maux Moncivaez and Jamal Whea7s Lee.When I was first approached by this roster, I was shocked that a team of this caliber was still available, states Mike Del Brocco, Owner and CEO of Revenge.
