The native of Mont-Tremblant, Que., captured a World Cup downhill event Saturday, his second this year and fifth career victory on the circuit. The New Orleans Saints and quarterback Drew Brees are expected to reach agreement on a short-term contract extension by the end of the day, league sources told ESPNs Ed Werder on Wednesday.Sources told Werder on Monday that the Saints and Brees agent, Tom Condon, had resumed talks over a possible contract extension.There has been dialogue between the two for approximately a week and an exchange of proposals in recent days. Brees, 37, has said he will not negotiate once the season begins Sunday with the Saints at home against the Oakland Raiders.Brees has just one year left on his current contract. And if an extension isnt reached, he could become an unrestricted free agent next spring. It would cost the Saints nearly $43 million to use the franchise tag on Brees for the third time in his career (a 44 percent raise over his current salary-cap cost of $30 million).A source told ESPNs Mike Triplett that the extension Brees and the Saints are currently discussing may be shorter in length than other recent blockbuster quarterback deals.Brees became the highest-paid player in NFL history when he siggned a five-year, $100 million contract in 2012. Mike Adams Womens Jersey. However, his $20 million average has been passed 11 times since then -- including twice by Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco.Flacco signed for a record $22.13 million per year in new money in March. Then Colts QB Andrew Luck shattered that mark with $24.6 million per year in new money last month.However, the biggest sticking point in Brees contract will likely be the guaranteed money, because of his age. If Brees wants more than $60 million in guarantees like other top quarterbacks, that would guarantee him money into his age-39 or age-40 season.Brees is still going strong. He led the NFL in passing for the fourth time in five seasons last year with 4,870 yards in just 15 games played.However, the Saints have not been going strong, with back-to-back 7-9 seasons. And theyll need to decide if they want to re-up with their future Hall of Fame quarterback or reboot.ESPNs Mike Triplett contributed to this report.

Senators fans in Ottawa are still getting over the shock of the departure of their long-time captain, Daniel Alfredsson. Archie Manning Womens Jersey . In fact when the Detroit Red Wings visit the Senators next season, you can likely expect one of the toughest tickets that the franchise has ever seen. But in the meantime, there seems to be an appetite to direct some blame - any blame - for having Alfredsson end up in a Red Wings uniform. So its Your Call: Who should bear the brunt of fans anger in Ottawa? Should the anger be directed at general manager Bryan Murray for not getting a deal done long before Alfredsson hit the market? Should it be to Senators owner Eugene Melnyk? Or should some anger be directed to Alfredsson himself, for originally saying that he would come back to Ottawa but ultimately leaving for what he described as a better chance to win a Stanley Cup? Perhaps the blame can be shared between all three - Murray, Melnyk, and Alfredsson. Or in the end, is there no blame to go around at all? Is it just the business of hockey involving a 40-year-old player who is trying to make one of the last decisions of his playing career?

Brisbane coach John Aloisi is confident his side will have no trouble blunting Melbourne Citys all-star attack in Friday nights A-League blockbuster. Antoine Bethea Womens Jersey .The likes of Tim Cahill and Bruno Fornaroli might have cut swathes through opposition defences across the first month of the competition, but Aloisi insists the Roars occasionally shaky rearguard will be able to cope.Two statistics show why.First, the Roar have one of the A-Leagues strongest home records, having lost just once in the past 18 months at Suncorp Stadium.Second, theyve conceded just nine shots on target - the fewest of any side so far this season, even accounting for their 4-0 nightmare in round two in Newcastle.That means were defending well as a team - not only the back four, Aloisi said.We know its going to be difficult again because its not only Fornaroli and Tim Cahill, theyve got other players that are in there.But in every team we play against every week, theres quality players.Despite speculation he could miss through injury, Cahill has been included in Citys travelling squad and is expected to start - setting up an intriguing battle with Roar frontman Jamie Maclaren, who has replaced him in the Socceroos squad for this months World Cup qualifier in Thailand.The last time Cahill played at Suncorp, he scored a memorable bicycle kick in Australias 2-0 win over China early last year in the Asian Cup quarter-finals, and a crowd of more than 20,000 is expected to catch another glimpse.Brisbanes Dimitri Petratos and Arana, meanwhile, are a big chance of making their first appearances of the season, according to Aloisi.Petratos has overcome an ankle injury while Spanish off-season recruit Arana, a versatile attacking player, has been building up his match fitness and is ready to be unleashed.City coach John van t Schip is wary of what Aloisi and his new-look Roar might have in store.Theyve changed their approach a bit, theyre playing a bit more defensively and then on the counter-attack, he said.The conditions are always different, but also I think were in good shape.STATS THAT MATTER:* City have won four of their past six games against Brisbane (D1, L1), including a 3-1 victory in their last encounter* Neil Kilkenny (4) has received more yellow cards than any other player in the competition so far and twice as many as any Roar player* Brisbane have conceded 22 more fouls than theyve won so far this campaign, the biggest negative disparity of any team in the competition Carlos Hyde Womens Jersey .

NEW YORK -- The New York Rangers signed forward Chris Kreider to a four-year contract worth $18.5 million in a last-minute deal that helped the sides avoid arbitration.General manager Jeff Gorton announced the agreement on Friday. Hours later, he also announced the signing of the Rangers other major restricted free agent, center Kevin Hayes.Hayes signed a two-year contract for $5.2 million. He was scheduled to have an arbitration hearing next week.Kreiders new contract will pay him an average of $4.6 million and keep him the team through 2020. It also includes a modified no-trade clause that prevents the 25-year-old Kreider from being traded to 11 teams.What happens in this type of deal is that both sides have stated positions and when the specter of `arb comes, it drives both sides closer, Matt Keator, Kreiders agent, said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. For us, the term was the right amount and for the team that amount was the right amount, so we were able to come together on both sides.It worked out fine, and Chris loves New York and wants to be there.Keator said both sides were ready to present their cases Friday morning before reaching an agreement.Kreider had 21 goals and 22 assists in 79 games for New York and a plus-10 rating. He established career-highs in even-strength goals (16) and hits (177), and he tied his career-high in goals, set the previous season.Kreider was one of six NHL players who registered at least 20 goals, 40 points, a plus-10 rating, and 50 penalty minutes this pastt season.

SAN ANTONIO -- Jeff Beverly scored 21 points on 6-of-13 shooting, Byron Frohnen added 18 points and the University of Texas-San Antonio beat Prairie View 69-59 in Saturday nights home opener, notching coach Steve Hensons first win.

HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- Four drivers will compete for the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway with the intensity for the trophy unchanged but for a champions bonus less than half of last seasons, sources tell ESPN.The overall point fund last year was $21.765 million, with the champion slated to earn about $4.7 million (Kyle Buschs take was less because he missed 11 races), and this year it will be less than half that amount.Second place last year paid $2.1 million, third $1.58 million, with seventh place on back earning less than a million.As part of the new charter system and in an effort to make their revenue stream more predictable, NASCAR and the team owners Race Team Alliance agreed to pay the champion less but spread the point fund more equitably throughout the top 25 drivers and teams.Drivers typically get paid a percentage of purse and point-fund money in addition to a base salary.The champion should get his level of money and then [Nos.] 2 through 4 should get his level of money and then each Chase [elimination] bracket should get their level of money, said Busch, who indicated he did not favor the new formula. What they tried to do is they tried to even it out from first all the way back to last in order to make the sport more sustainable for everybody.When youre the driver and not the owner and youre taking home a percentage of that, that hurts you really bad. It was done through the RTA. It wasnt done through the driver council. So we had absolutely no say in it so thats why its the way that it is.The overall point fund increased in 2016, NASCAR Chief Operating Officer Brett Dewar said, but he wouldnt elaborate, citing confidentiality clauses in the charters, about the distribution.The teams obviously had to share with the drivers what they were getting from NASCAR as they reworked agreements based on the new system unveiled in February.I think it is a million-and-a-half to win a Cup, six-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson said. The last time I stood on stage, it was 7-and-a-half [million]. Its a huge change.Sources familiar with the charter agreements indicated the 2016 bonus to the championship team is much closer to $2 million than $1.5 million. The last time Johnson was on stage, in 2013, the champion bonus was $5.2 million, with Johnson and his team having total earnings of $14.66 million. Johnson and his team did get a $7.225 million champion bonus in 2008.It doesnt matter, Busch said. To me, how Ive always looked about it ... Ive always raced to achieve what I want too achieve based on success and results. Allen Hurns Youth Jersey. t hasnt been for the money. You do want to get paid for what you do. You want to get paid well if youre better at what you do. It all comes down to taking home trophies.NASCAR stopped publishing how much money a driver earns for the team each week in the purse and does not plan to publicize the bonus structure as it has in the past, citing the new charter system structure.The first race I won was $125, championship finalist Carl Edwards?said. We dont race for money, but Im sure it pays fine. ... Im not too worried about that part of it.The 36 charter teams get dollars from two pools of money based on participation -- a fixed amount each team gets, and then an amount based on the teams finishes the previous three years, most heavily weighted to the previous season, which means that the champion will earn more for his team over the next three years than if he had finished lower in the standings.Charter and non-charter teams vie for the same amount of purse money for each race through the field (obviously less than in past years because much of the money is part of the fixed amount) and year-end bonus money that goes to the top 25 owners and drivers.Early in the year, there was shuffling around, drivers getting their agreements situated, Johnson said. The money is still coming to the teams but where it goes and how the agreements read, from a purse standpoint, traditional purse standpoint, it is what it is.There are a handful of agents and lawyers who handle most contracts for drivers, who at the start of the year said the teams for the most part worked with them to try to adjust their pay scales to the new formula as it is no longer as simple as a percentage of the purse.Theres a whole formula involved, Busch said. Its quite confusing. So Im not exactly sure if Ill make 100 percent of what I made last year [if I win the title] or 80 percent or something within there. I dont know exactly.The drivers will find out how much money they make when the check comes.I dont even know what it pays to win this thing, finalist Joey Logano said. I will care, yes, but really my goal is to beat everyone. That is the biggest reward that you can feel from inside, that moment of victory, not the moment of the check.That is still really cool and you can do a lot of really great things with [the money] ... but that [winning moment] is the coolest thing.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Andrew Luck spent the first quarter and a half Sunday knocking off some rust. Derek Wolfe Jersey .Then he went back to work, regained his pre-2015 form and nearly led the Colts to their first opening day victory in three years.Afterward, Luck wasnt eager to discuss how the game went -- only the frustrating result of another slow start leading to another maddening defeat.At the end of the day, its about a win or a loss, following Sundays 39-35 loss to Detroit. And it doesnt quite matter how you end up there.But one day before celebrating his 27th birthday, the highest-paid player in league history showed he was worth every penny -- even if Indys injury-depleted defense couldnt hold onto the lead for the final 37 seconds.Between the early struggles and the frenetic finish, Luck again looked as if hes one of the best young quarterbacks in football.Luck hadnt played in a meaningful game since last November, so nobody was quite sure what to expect when he returned Sunday.What they got was a glimpse of the quarterback who made the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons.He found tight ends Dwayne Allen and Jack Doyle for three touchdowns. He connected with speedsters T.Y. Hilton and Phillip Dorsett for big-gainers. He slid down on runs and, most important, finished without a turnover -- a stark contrast from last seasons mistake-prone and injury-shortened season.By Lucks own standards, it wasnt good enough because it wasnt a victory.Everyone else who watched the game from the sideline, couldnt quibble with what they saw from Luck, though.I thought the offensive line held up pretty damn good, especially in the second half, coach Chuck Pagano said. I think our quarterback, obviously, was exceptional and played one whale of a football game.Even if he was a little rusty early.On Lucks first eight passes, he completed five for just 23 yards as the Colts fell into a 14-0 hole and later a 21-3 deficit.Thats when Luck really let things fly.With 1:37 left in the first half and no timeouts left, Luck took the Colts 75 yards and closed out the half with a 3-yard TD pass to Donte Moncrief that sent the Colts into the locker room with a much needed dose of momentum.Luck didnt stop there. After the defense forced a three-and-out, Luck completed passes of 51, 12 and 19 yards on Indys first series of the third quarter, the third a TD pass to Allen. A 2-point pass to Allen made it 21-18.He (Luck) played out of his mind today, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford said after going 31 of 39 for 340 yards with three touchdowns.After the Lions scored another touchdown, Luck answered by leading the Colts to a field goal and two more TD passes to Doyle, the second with 37 seconds left to make it 35-34 rekindling images of his last-play TD pass to beat Detroit four years ago.Only this time, Stafford got the ball last and made the plays that sent Luck home with a painful loss.If youre playing Monday morning quarterback, you say why dont you run the clock out and then score, Luck said. But in football you cant do that, youve got to score first.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Tom Jackson Broncos Jersey .

LONDON -- For Caroline Wozniacki, just winning a Grand Slam match these days would be nice. Carlos Hyde Womens Jersey .The former No. 1-ranked player came into Wimbledon unseeded at a major for the first time in eight years and with a world ranking of No. 45, her lowest since 2008.Faced with a tough first-round draw, the 25-year-old Dane departed quickly Tuesday after losing to 14th-seeded Svetlana Kuznetsova, 7-5, 6-4, leaving her without a Grand Slam match win in 2016.Wozniacki also fell in the first round at the Australian Open and missed the French Open with a right ankle injury. Her overall record this year is 11-11.Its been a tough year in general, Wozniacki said, taking a philosophical tone. Its been some injuries. Its been some bad draws. Its been uphill. But you just have to keep fighting, keep going at it, keep working hard, and hope eventually thats going to turn and youre going to take the chances youre going to get.Thats really all you can do right now, she said.Wozniacki was ranked No. 1 for 67 weeks in 2010 and 2011 and reached two Grand Slam finals, finishing runner-up at the 2009 and 2014 U.S. Opens. This was her 10th appearance at Wimbledon, where she has reached the fourth round five times but never made it to the quarterfinals.Coming off the ankle injury, Wozniacki showed progress at the grass-court warmup tournament at Eastbourne, winning back-to-back matches for the first time since February. I thought I played some really good tennis in Eastbourne, she said. Obviously (I) was hoping I could step up from there and do more damage today. But it wasnt enough.Wozniacki played well against Kuznetsova, also a former No. 1 player. She pushed the Russian but didnt have enough to overcome her in a match played with the retractable roof closed over Centre Court because of rain.She played aggressively and stepped up when she had to, Wozniacki said. She did what she had to do today.For now, Wozniacki is planning to play hard-court tournaments in Washington and Montreal.Shes also awaiting a ruling on the appeal on her eligibility for the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Wozniacki has been selected as Denmarks flag-bearer for the games, but has failed to meet the International Tennis Federations Fed Cup requirements.Obviously I want to play, she said. But if they decide that Im not going to play, then theres not much I can do about it.In addition to the injuries, losses and drop in the rankings, Wozniacki endured a well-publicized breakup in 2014 with golfer Rory McIlroy.Referring to the last year-and-a-half in general, she said: I mean, at one point youre just like, you know what, it has to turn, it has to go the other way eventually. Im just going to take the punches Im getting and just try and learn from it and try and move forward.During her injury layoffs, Wozniacki has kept busy with various off-the-court projects.If theres time left over, then I try and just have fun in life, she said. We only live once. We dont get a mulligan.One thing Wozniacki wont do is read about herself.I think if I read everything that was written about me the last 15 years, I think by now I probably would have jumped over a cliff, she said. I would rather not.---Stephen Wilson can be followed at www.twitter.com/stevewilsonap Roger Craig Youth Jersey .

Sgt. Eric ONeal says most of the arrests at Monday nights game were for public drunkenness, though one person was taken into custody on suspicion of trying to steal a seat from the stadium. In Monza, ESPN sat down with Daniil Kvyat to discuss the harsh lessons from his demotion from Red Bull to Toro Rosso in May, how hes dealt with his poor form since and why?hes not worrying about where he will be in 2017.You were pretty downbeat before the summer break. In Belgium it seemed like the four weeks had been pretty helpful for you -- have two disappointing weekends reset your mindset?First of all, weve done our best in Spa. We have to be realistic about things. We didnt go quite where we wanted to be but it was nothing like Germany, with what happened there. Its fine. As an engineering group, technical group, we came out of the race saying wed done our best.Now its up to the engineers to understand where we can improve things because theres something quite deep inside which prevents us putting on the performance we used to. The straight-line limitation is very big and very frustrating ... but we cant do anything about that so we shouldnt even think about that.Do you still feel like youre in a better place?Im OK. Im fine -- I live with the day and nothing else, so Im fine.In the situation you were in before the summer break, it seemed like it was one bad thing after another. Is it easy to become obsessed with the finer details when youre struggling for form?That might have been the case, in the past, but Im completely fine now. I know where we are and Im realistic about things. I dont have any issues with the things youre talking about.It must be frustrating, then, that youve reached that point as Toro Rossos engine deficiency is becoming more obvious as the season wares on?Yeah, but unfortunately thats just the way things are laying at the moment. We just have to accept them and go forward. We can influence in a positive way certain things, and nothing else. It would not help me to think I cannot show [what I can do]. The right people notice things and I will have to be quite patient, but I learned this patience over the summer break.Weve seen the support given to you by Helmut Marko since your demotion. How do you feel your standing is within the team?Thats a question for them, not for me. I am doing my job, and like I admitted before the summer break, there have been some big up and downs for me. There were some big potential races that were hard to put together because I didnt know the limits of the car, the limits of the team.Now Im feeling more in line with things but I dont know what they think at the moment.Theres a lot of focus on who will be driving where in 2017...2017 is 2017. It starts in three and a half months time, so until then we just wait and see. It seems like theres no big rush.We will soon be at the stage where we approach the point where we are looking for answers about it. But at the moment I live the day of today, and nothing else, so Ill just see where it goes.Youre not thinking of life away from F1, then?No, I live with what happens today. I keep the right doors open and then we will see how this situation develops. A lot will depend on that, otherwise I dont know too much.When will we know what youre doing next year?As soon as possible, I hope. But Im not going to give any deadlines to the media. Terrell Owens Jersey. . If I have them I will give them to the right people when the right time comes.There has been a lot of talk about Pierre Gasly and the fact hes leading GP2, even rumours of him replacing you as early as Singapore. Is that a distraction for you?Yeah, but it doesnt change anything for me. It doesnt have any influence on my work, or my approach, so no. I know where I stand in the team.Is it hard to stay motivated at a team lower down the grid when youve dropped from a team fighting for wins and podiums?Of course there were some issues with that at some point. It wasnt easy, I found it difficult to understand and accept things, but Ive already started forgetting these things now. Its not the biggest issue any more. I know my value. Ive probably not been the most consistent guy out there but Ive had drives on my days and last year my final position in the championship, even with by far not the best car, speaks for itself.To be honest I never had the best package on the grid... Every time we had issues with engine, with every team Ive been in. So its OK, I dont have any issues with that. Im racing for myself first of all, so I know how things stand and what I can do.You mention last year. Was there anything that could have prepared you for what was coming ahead of Spain?No, no. It was all meant to be, I guess, since I signed for Red Bull. There was quite a high chance of this kind of scenario. For one year and a half I was living without knowing what was going to happen in the next day, so its fair enough. Its a good lesson for the future though.I suppose its something you always know might happen, being in the Red Bull driver programme?You know, yes, but you dont want it to go that way! When you go up as high in your career you dont expect things to change so quickly and so dramatically. It wasnt the best thing but Ive already turned that page, this is already forgotten. Its not forgotten forgotten, but Im working with a different mindset and different thoughts in my mind, not thinking about what happened in May.Weve seen Toro Rosso slip down the pecking order since Australia. Realistically, can this team get back into the points before the end of 2016?We hope so, we would like it to be like that. Of course there are slower circuits coming up with less engine dependency which we hope are going to be more favourable for us. But of course some tracks with higher engine demands are not going to be easy. We have to understand how we can make the best out of races which should suit us.Theres a lot of excitement about next years rule changes. Red Bull or Toro Rosso seems like a good place to be if aerodynamics are going to have more of an impact....I still think engine will be important next year, the engines are staying the same. The more downforce means you will need more horsepower to push down the straights, so engines are still very important. The new rules give hope to some teams. Its always going to be interesting but I have no idea how its going to influence Red Bull or Toro Rosso.

DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies will try to build on their walk-off win Friday night and clinch their series with the San Diego Padres on Saturday. Boomer Esiason Bengals Jersey .The Rockies scored three runs in the ninth inning against Padres closer Brandon Maurer for an 8-7 victory. The winning hit was a pinch-single off the center-field wall by Daniel Descalso.The veteran infielders playing time has increased dramatically in the wake of shortstop Trevor Storys season-ending thumb injury on July 30. Descalso, who turns 30 next month, is in the final season of a two-year, $3.6 million contract after four full seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals.With St. Louis, Descalso played in 44 postseason games -- 25 more than the Rockies in their history -- including nine World Series games.Hes a winning player, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. Thats why we brought him in. One of the few guys in (the clubhouse) thats played in World Series.Descalso hit just .205 with a .607 OPS in 101 games and 185 at-bats last year. But this season, he has made 55 starts and has 206 at-bats in 85 games and is hitting .272 with an .820 OPS. With runners in scoring position this season, Descalso is hitting .415 (22-for-53) with 32 RBI.Descalso said he spent time in the offseason studying the swings of several players, including Josh Donaldson, the reigning Most Valuable Player in the American League, Mookie Betts and former Cardinals teammate Matt Carpenter, and talking with former Cardinals teammate Jon Jay, now a member of the Padres.I just found a swing that I can repeat and that I feel confident in, said Descalso, whose swing is more rhythmic because he begins it after some motion with his hands that he lacked last year. It has just allowed me to simplify my at-bats and just worry about getting good pitches to hit and putting good swings on it instead of worrying about whats wrong with my swing and my timing. Its just put me in a simpler mind set and simpler approach.Jon Gray, who is 9-8 with a 4.69 ERA, will start for the Rockies. He lost his last start on Sept. 10 in San Diego, giving up six runs (five earned) in four innings.Weiss said after that outing, Gray and pitching coach Steve Foster and bullpen coach Darren Holmes worked on some minor mechanical things.Ots more about timing issues over the rubber, Weiss said. Thats one of the things Jon has to really be in tune with. That affects his slider. When he doesnt have his slider, it makes it tough for him.His sliders a wipeout pitch, but its been inconsistent at times this year. When he has that pitch, everything else kind of falls in place for him and he can be dominant. So, hopefully, we got that rectified.Gray is 1-2 with a 3.75 ERA in four starts against the Padres this year, including a June outing at Coors Field where he allowed three runs (one earned) in seven innings. Gray is 6-2 with a 4.82 ERA in 13 starts at Coors Field this season.Edwin Jackson will start for the Padres. Hes 4-5 with a 5.32 ERA in 18 games, including 10 starts.Two starts ago, the well-traveled Jackson, 33, made a mechanical adjustment to the end of his delivery. He then worked seven scoreless innings against Boston on Sept. 5, striking out 11, the most by a Padres pitcher this season, and allowing four hits and two walks while getting the victory in San Diegos 2-1 win.On Sept. 11, Jackson allowed two runs in six innings against the Rockies but wasnt involved in the decision as the Padres lost 3-2 in 10 innings.Padres first baseman Wil Myers hit his 25th homer on Friday, a two-run shot in the first inning. Myers joined Mike Trout as the only major leaguers with at least 25 doubles, 25 homers and 25 stolen bases this year. Myers, who has 26 doubles and 25 stolen bases, is the first Padres first baseman to reach those three milestones.Its something thats definitely pretty cool, Myers said. I definitely didnt have that goal in mind when I started the season. But as I learned more about stealing bases, it kind of became one.Myers also became the third first baseman in major league history to have 25 or more doubles, homers and stolen bases in a season. Jeff Bagwell and Joe Carter are the others. Carlos Dunlap Youth Jersey . But by the time the game started, the Toronto Raptors forward felt even worse. And, for three quarters, it showed as Gay shot a woeful three-for-13 from the field. Andy Dalton Jersey . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book. http://www.footballbengalsnflstore.com/Youth-Karlos-Dansby-Elite-Jersey/ . -- Edmontons Val Sweeting is two wins away from a trip to Winnipeg to play in Canadas Road of the Rings in December. MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- It didnt take Pat Watkins long to reclaim his starting job with the Toronto Argonauts. The all-star cornerback missed all of Torontos training camp dealing with a personal matter. But hell be on the field Friday night when Toronto begins its Grey Cup defence at Rogers Centre against the arch-rival Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Watkins rejoined the Argos just prior to their 24-20 exhibition win over Montreal last Thursday and resumed practising after passing his physical on the weekend. Against Hamilton, Watkins will start at right cornerback alongside Jahlil Carter, who moved to halfback after starting at the corner in Torontos 35-22 Grey Cup win over Calgary. "Im feeling pretty good," Watkins said. "They put me into a lot of special teams this week to try and get that extra energy and I believe it worked. "Its a lot easier to work with someone like Jahlil who knows the system. Its easier to communicate with him as far as the language that we speak as opposed to having someone new there who has to learn the different terms." The six-foot-five, 205-pound Watkins made an immediate impact last season, his first with Toronto. The former San Diego Charger and Dallas Cowboy finished tied with retired safety Jordan Younger for second in the CFL with five interceptions and was named a league all-star. But an ankle ailment forced Watkins to miss Torontos Grey Cup victory. Watkins return couldnt have come at a better time for Toronto as hell be just one of five returnees to a revamped defence, joining Carter and linebackers Marcus Ball, Brandon Isaac and Robert McCune. The Argos will unveil a new defensive line against Hamilton with ends David Lee and Nekos Brown and tackles Khalif Mitchell and Jonathan Williams. The six-foot-five, 315-pound Mitchell is a former CFL all-star and Grey Cup champion, however Brown and Williams are rookies while Lee is entering his second CFL season. Ball, McCune and Isaac anchor the linebacking corps but the secondary features three new starters in safety Matt Black, halfback Antareis Bryan and corner Alexander Robinson. While Toronto might lack playing experience on defence, head coach Scott Milanovich said the units athleticism and speed give defensive co-ordinator Chris Jones plenty of options with his schemes and player rotations. "The thing Chris has always been so good at is taking the talent he has and fitting his defence around the strengths," Milanovich said. "Therell certainly be some new wrinkles but there will be things that look familiar too. "Theres a lot of guys were looking at who have to prove they can do it on game night. Weve seen them cover and rush the passer and do all those things well in practice but until you see it when it matters youre never really sure." Torontos defence will be challenged by a Hamilton offence spearheaded by veteran quarterback Henry Burris. The Ticats led the CFL in scoring last year, averaging 29.9 points per game, while the 38-year-old Burris posted career highs of 5,367 passing yards and 43 TDs. "Henry is so hard to put your finger on because you can do everything right and he can still make a play," Milanovich said. "Thats always the difficulty of playing against Henry because hes mobile, hes strong, hes athletic, he can run." Hamiltons defence underwent changes this off-season as well, and with good reason. Last year, the Ticats allowed 32 points and 306 yards passing per game, both league highs, aas the team missed the CFL playoffs with a 6-12 record. Andy Dalton Womens Jersey. Although the Ticats return eight defensive starters, they also have a new defensive co-ordinator in Orlondo Steinauer. The 40-year-old Seattle native not only played eight seasons as a defensive back with Toronto but later served as its defensive backs coach and defensive co-ordinator before joining Hamilton this off-season. "Were going to play with great effort,I can tell you that, and run to the football," Ticats head coach Kent Austin said of his defence. "Were going to hit, were going to tackle and were going to tackle the football. "We want to be an opportunistic defence that gets turnovers. You have to get turnovers in this game . . . so we want a defence that plays the game in such a way that its not reckless but its effort level allows it to create an environment conducive for getting the ball and getting the other team off the field. We want a fast defence and a defence that has interchangeable parts so we can have versatility." Steinauers unit will face a Toronto offence anchored by veteran quarterback Ricky Ray and receiver/kick-returner Chad Owens, the leagues outstanding player last season. "I dont think for us Ricky will be fooled very often," Milanovich said. "He has played against every different coverage that I know of and maybe Orlondo can come up with something new but I think Ricky will find rhythm in his drops and his progressions." Although two veteran quarterbacks will lead offences featuring many familiar faces against defences with plenty of question marks, both coaches wouldnt give the offensive units the advantage Friday night. "I dont feel that way," Milanovich said. "Ive prepared against Chris Jones in the past and its not fun and thats one of the reasons why I wanted him here. "At the same time, were in a situation where we dont know what Orlondo will do and I think you see how many strides theyve made defensively already." Added Austin: "Every game takes on its own story, thats what I love about this game, it takes on its own complexion. I wouldnt say that the inexperience on one side of the ball creates an advantage for the other side of the ball with the opposing team. It can, it all depends on the quality of the individuals, how well theyre being coached and how well theyre prepared." Prior to the game, Toronto will unfurl its Grey Cup banner but the majority of players wont be on the field. And thats fine with Issac. "I really dont care about the banner, I already know we are champions," he said. "The banner is for the fans and community. "I mean, were appreciative of the banner going up so down the road, 10-to-12 years from now, we can come back and say we won a championship but other than that, its nothing." Burris wont be bothered by having to sit through the pre-game celebration. "Its one of those situations you say congratulations to them, they did it last year but this is a new year," he said. "If they want to celebrate a party, well, hopefully we can make this our coming-out party. "When someones going to have a party and youre the guest, yeah, that does get you going. But the thing is were going to be pumped up just as we would for any other game but the main focus for us is focus on our job. It doesnt matter what they do because if we do what we do and do it best, that will take care of itself."

LOUDON, N. Harrison Smith Youth Jersey .H. -- NASCAR didnt get the day it needed Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. It needed a free-for-all wrestling match on a 1-mile flat race track on a hot summer day when its most popular driver was sidelined by a possible concussion.Thanks, Matt Kenseth, for spoiling all that hope. Kenseth earned his 38th career win in a New Hampshire 301 dominated by the same drivers who have dominated all season and where battles for the lead primarily got dicey when the leaders found themselves in the rare position of being stuck in traffic or on a restart.The race had potential to invigorate. Restarts would be crazy thanks to the typical one-groove track. Drivers who already have made the Chase would have nothing to lose beating and banging for a win. Teams had not used the regular 2016 aerodynamic package since early June at Pocono, meaning that some teams might have landed on something in the last month that could throw the establishment into a tailspin.Oh, there could have been mayhem.Sigh. Even the restarts with potential for dramatics, resulted in mostly fender benders that then resulted in tire rubs instead of all-out melees battling for position.A ho-hum race won by Kenseth? Where have NASCAR fans seen that before? At least it wasnt like his last win at New Hampshire by fuel mileage.Kenseth no doubt earned it in front of a disappointing half-filled grandstands in a race with no sponsor. And in a race with no Dale Earnhardt Jr., out with concussion-type symptoms.The lack of drama was the result of one thing: Talent rises to the top and currently its primarily Toyota teams (Joe Gibbs Racing and Furniture Row Racing) sitting there with Stewart-Haas?Racing and Team Penske playing the role of annoying gnats.I felt like we had probably the best car all day, Kenseth said. It just took forever to get there.Yes it did, and Kenseth didnt do anything dramatic to get there. Thats what a driver does when having the best car -- dont tear the thing up but make the pass when the opportunity presents itself. Theres no need to look at the rearview mirror when the car is better than the rest.I think no matter what package it is, ... its kind of the same group youve got to beat, Kenseth said. I dont think anybody really is leaps and bounds out there running away from it. The rules are too tight and everybody is pretty close to the same speed.Kenseth, the 2003 Sprint Cup champion, is one of the series best drivers and he felt as if he had one of the best cars. That was pretty obvious as he led the final 31 laps.The driver who has led the most laps this year, Martin Truex Jr., led 123 laps and the driver who entered third in laps led this year, Kyle Busch, paced the field for 133 circuits early in the race.Truex had another one of those show-me-how-to-lose-it days, this time with a broken shifter as the culprit. The other dominant driver this season, Kevin Harvick, would have led laps if he didnt have two slow pit stops.We under-execute as a team on a weekly basis and got to do a better job, Harvick said. The ... cars are always fast, but we always do something wrong. Its really going to have to come from the top [to manage].I mean they are going to have to clamp down and there is no way we can win a championship like this unless they straighten some of this stuff out.That left the race for Kenseth to lose, and while he has had some moments similar to Truex this year, he appeared flawless on the four restarts in the final 43 laps, leaving any challengers racing for second.That race actually was a good one, with Tony Stewart rallying late. The outside lane was the obvious spot where drivers wanted to be on restarts, and restarting sixth with 11 laps left put him in position to gain positions. But by the time he passed Joey Logano for second with a couple laps remaining, he had no hope of catching Kenseth, who won by nearly?-- yawn?--?two seconds.There were a couple times that we were racing around guys and we would catch them and then just got too tight when we got right up to them, Stewart said. There were times that I thought I pulled some veteran moves ... and watched them race each other, and then when you see them start missing the bottom or getting loose on the exit, then I went up there and tried to push them and make them make mistakes, and it was working.Logano finished third, followed by Harvick and then the first surprise -- Greg Biffle, in fifth, for his first top-5 of the season.I cant say I passed a car if it wasnt in the first 10 laps after a restart --- not because it was hard to pass, just because my car wasnt good, Logano said. We were able to just be aggressive on restarts and get a couple, and then I was playing defense the rest of the day.Its not fun playing defense to be honest with you. Its not fun to do that. But days like today you have to get the best finish you possibly can.Kenseth has three wins in the past six races at New Hampshire, a place where he had no wins in his first 27 career Cup starts. In other words, his days at this track probably were like many of the fans who watched the first 219 laps?Sunday?with two cautions -- frustrating and wanting for more.They didnt even get a crazy finish. And for that, blame Kenseth and his team.These guys [on the team] did a great job, Kenseth said. I had an easy job today.? Stefon Diggs Womens Jersey .

Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as the Rangers shook off a late tying tally and beat the Maple Leafs 2-1 Monday night. MINNEAPOLIS -- King Felix is no longer the only ace in Seattle. Start by dazzling start, Hisashi Iwakuma is now right there with him. Iwakuma struck out five in 7 2-3 innings and Kendrys Morales homered to lead the Seattle Mariners to a 3-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night. Iwakuma (6-1) gave up seven hits and walked two to drop his ERA to 2.13, and Jesus Sucre added two hits and an RBI for the Mariners, who snapped Minnesotas four-game winning streak. Tom Wilhelmsen picked up his 12th save. "With what hes done in the past, I think were coming to expect this from him," Mariners shortstop Brendan Ryan said. "Whether thats fair or not, its just a tribute to how good and how nasty he is." Mike Pelfrey (3-6) gave up three runs on six hits in 5 1-3 innings for the Twins. Pedro Florimon had three hits and Chris Parmelee had two, but the rest of the lineup went 2 for 27 with six strikeouts. Morales eighth homer of the season was a two-run shot off Pelfrey to dead centre field that started Seattles three-run third inning. And that was all Iwakuma needed. "He knows how to dig deep when he needs to and he understands the game, and great heartbeat, like weve talked about so much," Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. "Hes able to slow the game down when he needs to slow it down and when he gets on a roll he gets in that nice tempo, which weve seen a lot of that this year." After a 10-game losing streak earlier in the month, the Twins came into the opener against the struggling Mariners on a nice little roll. They had won five of their previous six games following that miserable skid and appeared to have their fortunes turning thanks to a soft spot in the schedule -- they took four straight from the free-falling Brewers this week -- and some luck in not getting Mariners ace Felix Hernandez this weekend. But Iwakuma is no picnic either. Like many of his Japanese brethren who have come before him, Iwakuma has an almost hypnotic, unconventional delivery that plays with a hitters eye level. His right leg flares out on the follow-through that has the potential to distract as his splitter reaches the plate. He went 9--5 with a 3. Paul Krause Youth Jersey. 16 ERA in 16 starts last season, but the American League hasnt shown any signs of figuring him out in his second year. The crafty right-hander entered the game with a 2.35 ERA, the third best in the American League and just ahead of Hernandez (2.38). His only loss of the season came in a 2-1 defeat at Houston on April 23 when he struck out 11 in five innings. He didnt miss as many bats on Friday night, but he was just as effective. He got Joe Mauer and Ryan Doumit twice and also induced three comebackers to the mound as the Twins flailed away. "He can spot that fastball at the knees and I dont know how you want to describe it, but its downhill and then it kind of flattens out," Ryan said. "It looks like its going to be a ball down and it stays at the knees for a strike. Then he throws a splitter off that. What are you supposed to do? I mean at that point youre almost having to guess." The Twins had a chance to get on the board in the third inning with runners at the corners and one out. But a drawn-in Brendan Ryan made a nifty stab at shortstop on a hot shot from Jamey Carroll and made a sharp throw off one foot to get Parmelee at home plate. "He pretty much shut us down," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. Iwakuma caught a break in the fifth when Florimons double down the left field line bounced into the seats for a ground-rule double, which prevented Parmelee from scoring. Carroll grounded out to end the inning. "I didnt have a very good bullpen today," Iwakuma said through a translator. "I thought my balance wasnt right, but then I was able to make my adjustment during the game." NOTES: The Mariners have won four of six following and eight-game losing streak. ... Twins RHP Anthony Swarzak had a throwing error in the seventh inning, snapping the teams 11-game errorless streak one game shy of the franchise record. ... Twins GM Terry Ryan said the team would not activate OF Wilkin Ramirez when he is eligible to come off the seven-day disabled list on Sunday. ... RHP Aaron Harang (2-5, 6.51) will go for the Mariners on Saturday against RHP Kevin Correia (5-4, 3.96.).
