RECIFE, Brazil -- Luis Suarez has reminded anyone wholl listen at the Confederations Cup that hes playing for Uruguay, and not for a transfer from Liverpool to another club -- perhaps Real Madrid. "Im going out to play for my country of Uruguay," Suarez said. "Im not here thinking about a transfer or anything like that." The Uruguay striker is one of the games best, elusive on the dribble with a knack for scoring. He also has a penchant for getting into trouble and doing the wrong thing, drawing attention to himself in a way that has embarrassed his club and country and detracted from his playing skills. Still -- and heres the caveat -- hes the most important player for Uruguay if the South Americans are to beat World Cup champion Spain on Sunday in the their first game in the Confederations Cup, the eight-team warm-up for next years World Cup. In addition to fending off rumours about a move to Real Madrid, Suarez has also tried to use the Confederations Cup to apologize again for his behaviour. "Obviously I have done things that I myself recognize, and Ive asked to be pardoned," he said. "As a player, as a professional Id like to be valued more for the way I play on the pitch than for other things." Suarez has a long record of getting into trouble. The 26-year-old was criticized in the 2010 World Cup for using his hand to stop a shot from Ghana that was heading towards goal. The move saved Uruguay in the quarterfinal match and got the South Americans into the semifinals and a fourth-place finish. More recently, he was banned for 10 English Premier League matches in April for biting Chelsea defender Branisalv Ivanovic on the arm.dddddddddddd He missed the last four Premier League games -- he still finished with 23 goals -- and will miss the first six next season. This was not the first biting incident. While playing in the Netherlands in 2010, he served a seven-match suspension for biting another player, earning him various nicknames, including the "Cannibal of Ajax." A year later at Liverpool, he served an eight-match ban for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra, who is black. He subsequently refused to shake hands with Evra prior to a match, again raising the charge of racism. And -- and this seems minor in comparison -- he has a reputation as a diver. Despite it all, Suarez has his defenders. Sebastian Bauza, president of the Uruguay Football Association, has singled out Suarez as the countrys key player. "We need for Suarez, as soon as possible ... to be the player he was in the (2011) Copa America and the World Cup in South Africa," Bauza said. "We have tough games coming up and we need Suarez at 100 per cent." Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez has tried to take off the pressure, saying the Group B game with Spain is less important than the second match against Nigeria. Uruguay finishes with Tahiti. Spain defeated Uruguay 3-1 in a friendly in February in Doha, Qatar. "The key game is the second," Tabarez said. "Winning it will be a giant step to put us among the final four. This is not to downgrade Tahiti, but in reality this is a team with less experience."

Today Mashrafe Mortaza becomes the first Bangladesh cricketer in the era since they gained Test status to finish 15 years in international cricket. Blue Jackets Jerseys Outlet . To mark the occasion, a collection of anecdotes, tributes and reflections by fellow cricketers, administrators, journalists, and the man himself.Tamim Iqbal, Bangladesh team-mate I was really down during the 2015 World Cup. There was a lot of talk about me and it would have been easy to drop me or forget about me, but the way he took care of me was unbelievable. He gave me a lot of time, spoke about everything else other than cricket. He joked with me, and while I knew that he was trying to distract me away from my troubles, I did indeed end up forgetting about them. During team meetings he would start off by saying, Tamim will be the key. When I used to hear him speak about me in that way, it gave me a positive mindset. He did it through the tournament. I might play under a better captain than him but I seriously doubt whether if anyone else will take care of me like Mashrafe bhai.Brendan Taylor Former Zimbabwe captain, who played against Mashrafe in 28 international matches In 2006 we were level at one-all in a five-match series. We were chasing 237 to go 2-1 up.I remember Shahadat Hossain getting a hat-trick, and we were under serious pressure. Mash had had some success upfront and at the death. We needed 17 off the last over when he bowled a full toss that I hit for a six. I felt he was now under pressure, but knowing his character, I knew he would bounce back strong.We needed five off the last ball, which I managed to hit for six to win the game. Ill never forget him pull his jumper over his head in disbelief.One thing was for sure that he put all that behind him and made life very difficult for us when we toured Bangladesh a few months later. Again, its his strong mental side that has made him very successful. We have always respected each other and maintain a great friendship.Mahmudullah, Bangladesh team-mate On our way to West Indies in 2009, Mashrafe bhais first series as Bangladesh captain, he handed me an envelope in the airport lounge. Read it later, he said.I got on the plane and opened the envelope. The letter I read that day is something that I still remember. He had written some very inspiring words about me, and it seemed like he had taken a lot of time to write it, with lots of personal touches.He is an extraordinary human being who has taken our team to new heights. He is like an older brother, a friend. I pray that he leads Bangladesh into more success, and may he play for many years.Habibul Bashar, Former Bangladesh captain and current selector I always found Mashrafe to be a freakishly talented and determined individual. There are many occasions when he was unfit but pulled himself out somehow and managed to perform really well.It happened in Antigua when we were preparing for the 2007 World Cup. He was about to be sent back home with back spasms. The physio was observing him for a couple of days - with Mashrafe, you always wait till the last moment. We went on a day trip and he seemed a bit better, but the next day, when everyone thought he would have to go home, he arrived at the nets. And I was the unfortunate man facing his bowling - which was really fast that day!Shane JurgensenFormer Bangladesh head coach, current New Zealand bowling coach We were playing T20s in Ireland in 2012, and Mashrafe had just returned from an injury. In the first couple of games he struggled a little while bowling, so he was mentally down about it. During a team dinner before the next game, we spoke for ages, and I remember on the bus ride home he opened up about his numerous operations, most of them with no support to and from the hospitals, and then rehab. I was taken aback by his story. He is truly inspirational and you could tell he was a deep thinker, smart and extremely determined.Next day, in the third T20, he smashed a couple of big sixes and bowled beautifully under pressure to close out the game at the death, and all the self-doubt went out the window. He came into the dressing room, gave me a high five and a hug and said, as he always said, Bowling Shane!Bowling Mash, I replied.It was just one of those things we did.Shahriar Nafees, Bangladesh team-mate I returned from the Indian Cricket League in 2010 and had been in a national team training camp when news came that Tamim Iqbal wouldnt be available for the series against New Zealand. Mashrafe bhai had returned as captain. One of those days he called me into the dressing room when no one was around and told me that he had spoken to the selectors about me and wanted me to return to the team. I believe in you, he said.I cant explain how much it motivated me. I went on to be selected and I did quite well in that series. This is what Mashrafe bhai does to players. He can motivate them in many ways. I think this is why the team has been doing so well in the last two years.Khaled Mahmud, Former Bangladesh captain and current manager Fifteen years ago we were in India for an A team tour, just before the Test series against Zimbabwe in which Mashrafe would make his Test debut.We were having dinner on the balcony of the Cricket Club of India in Mumbai when the clubs president, Raj Singh Dungarpur, walked up to us and asked who the captain of the team was. I stood up and shook his hand. He said, Please play well tomorrow. Dont lose too badly.Mashrafe was just a kid back then. He asked me what was being said, and I told him. I think Mr Dungarpurs words did us a huge favour that day. Mashrafe bowled really fast in that game, and took three wickets. I have seen Taskin bowl, but in those days, Mashrafe was really quick. That day, Mashrafe showed us how good he would be for Bangladesh.Abdur Razzak, Bangladesh team-mate and long-time friend We have known each other most of our lives. We have bowled together plenty of times too, but what most people dont know is that we also shared a few 50-run stands.Once in Kenya we were in a tight spot chasing 185 runs. We needed another 50 runs when I arrived at the crease, with two wickets in hand. Nobody really believed that we could win that game. All we did was tell each other to stay there till the end. We did, shared a 51-run stand, and Bangladesh won. I didnt make much but he was unbeaten on 43.Debbabrata Mukherjee writer of Mashrafes first biography I have known Mashrafe since 2002, but two years ago I went to his home town, Narail, for the first time to research his biography. He usually stays with his maternal grandparents, where he grew up. When I got there, he took out his motorcycle and gestured for me to sit behind him.From the stories Ive heard, I was a bit apprehensive about the ride, but I went along. A few hundred yards down the road, he headed into the jungle on a makeshift road made of bricks laid down. I asked him where we were going.You will see, he replied.The motorcycle skidded and slipped as we tore along. I sat tight.Suddenly he stopped. I could sense that there was a river in front of me but it took me a while to get a good look, since it had become dark by then. Mashrafe looked like he had come to his natural habitat.This is the Chitra River, the love of my life, he said.Ariful Islam Roney Cricket writer Mashrafe had been asking me for a long time to visit Narail, so he could show me his fish farm and his vegetable and sesame fields. Finally, after the BPL in 2015, I was able to take the trip.The plan was to drive from Mirpur to Mawa Ferry Ghat, and then we take a speedboat to cross the Padma River, and then another car from the other side. He drove us to Mawa, seeming like a sprightly kid going back home from hostel.In the speedboat, he kept telling the driver to go faster, and at one point, he managed to get behind the wheel despite our protests. Suddenly the boat spun 180 degrees, tilting dangerously to one side. The boatman managed to get it steady just in the nick of time. While the rest of us were left horrified, Mashrafe laughed uncontrollably.None of us in the boat, except perhaps for the boatman, knew how to swim.Zahid Reza Babu Cricket organiser and Mashrafes guardian in Dhaka in the early days Mashrafe was playing New Zealand in 2008, and we had a deal that if he took a five-wicket haul, he would pay me Tk 25,000. He had taken four wickets in the first game and was bowling the final over of the innings. Off the fifth ball, Mahmudullah dropped a sitter at deep square leg.I was standing under the press box at the end of the innings. He walked a long way towards me with a smile on his face, and said, So how are you feeling right now? Your 25,000 just slipped away.I couldnt stop laughing that day.Rajib Biswas Raju Childhood friend This was from a few years ago. Mashrafes had come to Narail for a short vacation, but as usual, he rounded us up for a bit of stretching and warm-ups on the local ground. We were on the way from his house when a bus from Dhaka stopped next to us, near the house of someone we knew, whose mother we then saw get off the bus.She was about 65. The bus helper had put her bags, five of them, on the road. The house was close, but she couldnt have carried those bags on her own. Mashrafe, who had seen all of it, took her bags to the house. For me, it showed what kind of person he is. He might have been one of the most recognisable faces in the country, but he is a human being first - a really good one.Mashrafe Mortaza When touring England in 2005, we were put up in Lumley Castle in Durham. People said the castle had ghosts, and we had heard a lot of stories about it.One night I asked my friend Rana [the late Manzarul Islam] to record his voice in the spookiest manner he could think of. Then we went to a room where Aftab Ahmed and a few other players were. I tapped on their window and played the recording. Within seconds the lot of them ran out of the room.Then I went to Javed [Omar] bhais room and played the recording outside it. From inside, I heard him shout, Mashrafe, we know its you. Go away! But he didnt come out, and I knew it was because he wasnt really sure if it was me.Then I went to Sumon bhais [Habibul Bashar] room. As soon as he opened the door, he saw a figure wrapped in a white sheet. He was there with his wife and naturally they were frightened.The next morning I didnt dare go to the breakfast room for fear of what they all might do to me.Whats your favourite Mortaza memory?

ALLEN PARK, Mich. Rams Jerseys Outlet . -- Ndamukong Suh went to the front of the line to lead the way. And when it wasnt Suhs turn, he had words of encouragement -- which included a playful jab -- for his fellow defensive linemen. "OK, fat boy!" Suh screamed at Nick Fairley as the beefy tackle picked up and put down tennis balls as he sprinted around the path of a figure eight. "I see you, Zig!" Suh later shouted at rookie Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah. In Suhs first three seasons, the defensive tackle deferred leadership responsibilities to Kyle Vanden Bosch, Corey Williams and Cliff Avril. Those three veterans are gone, leaving Suh with a chance to lead, even if its just his group for now. Defensive end Willie Young has seen Suh take advantage of the opportunity during this weeks minicamp. "Hes definitely stepped it up," Young said Wednesday. "His actions say a lot." Suh shrugged off the changes others are seeing from him this week. "Im just being me," he said in an interview with The Associated Press. "We had senior leadership with guys who earned their place in the league and I only spoke up when I felt like I needed to. The same thing happened at Nebraska, where it wasnt until my junior or senior years that I got more vocal." Unlike Cornhuskers coach Bo Pelini, who encouraged Suh to be a leader of the team and face of the program, Lions coach Jim Schwartz isnt pushing for Suh to do more than make plays to help Detroit win. Suhs statistics have slipped since his rookie year in 2010, when the No. 2 overall pick had 49 solo tackles, including 10 sacks. He made fewer tackles in each of the next two years with four- and eight-sack seasons. "As a defensive tackle, sometimes you have to create plays for others that dont result in a statistic," Suh said. "Im fine with that as long as the job gets done and we win." In the meantime, Suh has developed a reputation as a dirty player. He was fined $30,000 last season for unnecessary roughness when his cleat collided with Houston quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin area. The league suspended Suh for two games in 2010 for stomping on Green Bays Evan Dietrich-Smith. That Thanksgiving game came during a season in which he roughed up QBs in questionable ways. Hes hoping for a drama-free, successful 2013. "You always want to be recognized for what you do on the field to help your team win," Suh told The AP. "All the other nonsense and noise, to me, its over." Suh doesnt think he should be labeled a dirty player. "Look at my track record," he said. "Habits are things you continuously do." Suh has regularly done unique activities with his free time during offseasons. He appeared on the ABC reality show "Splash" earlier this year and was previously on a reality dating show and in a car race. "I had a great experience and got some friendships out of Splash, and from an athletic standpoint, it was a chance to challenge myself outside of my comfort zone," Suh said. "Being able to adapt to different elements is something I pride myself on." Detroits leadership structure on defence was altered as soon as Vanden Bosch was released in February and when the team didnt re-sign Avril and Williams as free agents. Defensive co-ordinator Gunther Cunningham recalled being told by one of the teams strength coaches that Suh was doing a good job of leading his group. "Hes being a real team guy and hasnt lost his ability," Cunningham said. "So, thats a good thing." Suh said it would be great if his extra efforts lead to him becoming a team captain. "It would be a tremendous honour for my peers to vote for me to lead them," he said. NOTES: RB Reggie Bush said he wasnt concerned about "tweaking" an ankle after catching a short pass and falling during a drill Wednesday. ...

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Jalen Hurd recovered quarterback Joshua Dobbs overtime fumble in the end zone and No. 9 Tennessee overcame a 10-point halftime deficit to escape with a 20-13 victory over Appalachian State on Thursday night.Tennessee faced third-and-goal from the 2 when Dobbs ran to his right and lost control of the ball as he tried to stretch his arms across the goal line. Hurd won the scramble for the loose ball in the end zone to give the Volunteers their only lead of the night.Micah Abernathy ended the game by breaking up a pass into the end zone on fourth-and-5 from the 20.Tennessees comeback prevented Appalachian State from producing another shocker nine years to the day after the Mountaineers stunned No. 5 Michigan in one of the greatest upsets in college football history.The Vols tied it on Dobbs 67-yard touchdown pass to Josh Malone with 10:30 left in regulation. Appalachian States Michael Rubino, who earlier missed an extra point, was wide right on a 42-yard field goal attempt with 5:24 remaining.Rubinos miss wasted a 57-yard punt return by Jaquil Capel that gave Appalachian State the ball at the 28.Tennessee entered the season with its highest ranking since 2006 after winning its final six games last year, but the Volunteers looked nothing like a Top 10 team Thursday. The Volunteers committed two turnovers and lost linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin to a targeting penalty in the first half as Appalachian State built a 13-3 lead.Cam Sutton fumbled on a punt return and Appalachian States Alex Gray recovered at Tennessees 36 to set up the first touchdown, a 5-yard keeper from Taylor Lamb barely four minutes into the game. Cheap Rams Jerseys. Appalachian States other touchdown came in the second quarter on a 33-yard completion from Lamb to Marcus Cox, who also rushed for 115 yards.THE TAKEAWAYAppalachian State: The Mountaineers had lost by at least 28 points in each of their six meetings with Power Five teams since that Michigan game, but they showed Thursday that they could compete with college footballs big-name programs. Appalachian State refused to get pushed around and kept Tennessees offense out of the end zone for the first 49 1/2 minutes.Cox, who has rushed for over 1,200 yards each of the last three years, showed he can run effectively against any team from any conference.Tennessee: The Vols vowed they werent overlooking Appalachian State and werent distracted by sky-high preseason expectations, but something was clearly missing Thursday. Tennessee didnt bear any resemblance to the team that ended the 2015 season on a six-game winning streak.The biggest question surrounding Tennessee during the offseason was whether it could add efficiency and explosiveness to its passing attack. That area remains a major concern.UP NEXTAppalachian State: The Mountaineers have their home opener Sept. 10 against Old Dominion. Appalachian State must avoid looking ahead to its Sept. 17 home game with Miami.Tennessee: The Volunteers face Virginia Tech at the Bristol Motor Speedway. The Sept. 10 Battle at Bristol is expected to draw over 150,000 fans, which would mark the largest recorded attendance for a college football game.

Womens Steelers Jerseys . -- Kentucky coach Mark Stoops was speechless after Austin MacGinnis kicked a season-long 51-yard field goal as time expired to lift Kentucky to a 40-38 win over Mississippi State on Saturday night and end a seven-game skid against the Bulldogs.We both just looked at each other and I dont even know what we said, Stoops said. I gave him a hug and probably told him I loved him.For MacGinnis, the game-winner was a relief. MacGinnis also made field goals of 46, 32 and 32 yards but missed a 28-yard attempt Kentuckys opening series.It feels so good to get over the hump, he said. We havent beaten Mississippi State since Ive been here, so it felt really good to get the SEC win.Despite the botched attempt on MacGinnis first try, Stoops remained assured in his kickers abilities, even until the final buzzer.I had a lot of confidence with him in that last kick, the Kentucky coach said. I was good with it either way, because I felt like our team played their hearts out. I know our coaches coached their hearts out.Mississippi State trailed 34-24 with 14:57 remaining, but used two late touchdowns to make things interesting down the stretch, setting the tone for the exciting finish.Kentuckys Stephen Johnson was 17-of-33 passing for 292 yards and two touchdowns but had two fumbles, both resulting in touchdowns for the Bulldogs, including one that led to an 81-yard touchdown run by Mark McLaurin that pulled the Bulldogs within 34-31 with 9:33 remaining.The Wildcats (4-3, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) need two wins, with five games remaining in the regular season, to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2010.It was Kentuckys first win over Mississippi State (2-5, 1-3) since 2008 and marked the first time the Wildcats have won three or more conference games since the 2009 season.The loss was the third straight for the Bulldogs, who have struggled without former standout Dak Prescott, now turning heads in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys.Jeff Badet hauled in seven passes for 139 yards including touchdowns of 44 and 40 yards for Kentucky. Benny Snell added 128 yards rushing and one touchdown.Kentucky finished with 554 total yards and limited the Bulldogs to just 362 yards.Kentucky pulled within 14-12 on a double reverse out of the Wildcat formation from Snell to Ryan Timmons, to Johnson, who capped the play with a 44-yard touchdown strike to Badet to open the second half.The Wildcats took their first lead on Snells 34-yard touchdown run on Kentuckys second series of the half. Johnsons two-point conversion pass to Tevin Richardson gave the Wildcats a 20-17 lead with 6:26 remaining in the third quarter.Fitzgerald paced Mississippi States offense with 107 yards rushing and two touchdowns, including a 7-yard strike to Fred Ross to give the Bulldogs a 38-37 lead with 1:09 remaining.Stoops said the comeback ranks among his biggest wins in his four-year tenure as coach of the Wildcats.Its right up there, he said. It seems like we have some of those (in the past) but its right up there. It didnt go how we wanted it to all the time, but I really felt very well-prepared for this game.For the Bulldogs, the ending was all too familiar.We just needed to make a play and credit them for making the play, Mullen said. I feel bad for our guys. Weve lost three games this season on the final play of the game with a really young team. But the opportunities are there for us to make plays. We just didnt make enough of them.SCARY MOMENTMississippi State offensive guard Darryl Williams, a redshirt freshman, went down with a an injury during a field goal attempt in the second half and was carried off the field in a stretcher at the 9:37mark of the third quarter.Williams was transported to nearby UK Chandler Medical Center for further evaluation. According to MSU spokesman Bill Martin, Williams had movement in all of his extremities.THE TAKEAWAYKentucky: The Wildcats have won four of their past five games after opening the season with two straight losses. Kentucky took sole possession of second place in the SEC East with the win over the Bulldogs, a game ahead of No. 18 Tennessee, which was idle this week.Mississippi State: The Bulldogs streak of six straight postseason appearances appears to be in jeopardy with five games remaining in the season. Mississippi State has yet to play SEC West foes Alabama, Texas A&M, Arkansas and Mississippi. Coach Dan Mullen suffered his first loss to the Wildcats.UP NEXTKentucky is at Missouri Saturday.Mississippi State hosts Samford. Buy Cheap Steelers Jerseys .

Steelers Jerseys From China . Kuznetsov, who was selected by the Capitals in the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, has been playing for his hometown team Chelyabinsk Traktor of the KHL. . -- Jonathan Drouin gave Halifax the boost it needed to edge host Sherbrooke Phoenix 3-2 in a shootout in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Jason Sosa is heading overseas to make his first junior lightweight title defense. He will face Stephen Smith on Nov. 12 at the Salle des Etoiles in Monte Carlo, Monaco.The fight represents a change of plans for Sosa (19-1-4, 15 KOs) of Camden, New Jersey. Initially, he was going to defend his secondary 130-pound title this fall against 21-year-old Baltimore product Gervonta Davis (16-0, 15 KOs), a Floyd Mayweather protégé. But Sosas co-promoter, Russell Peltz, told that when Davis and his team failed to finalize the fight, Sosas team moved on to make a deal with Smith and his promoter, Matchroom Boxings Eddie Hearn.We are fighting Stephen Smith Nov. 12 in Monte Carlo. Davis or his team priced themselves out, Peltz said.Sosa, 28, fought to a 10-round majority draw with former featherweight titlist Nicholas Walters in December 2015 in a fight that virtually all observers had Walters winning easily. But the draw put Sosa in position for a shot at secondary titleholder Javier Fortuna, and they fought on June 24 in Beijing.Down on all three scorecards, Sosa rallied for an 11th-round knockout in a major upset to win the belt.The title shot will be the second for Smith, 31, who is part of a Liverpool, England, fighting family. He is one of four brothers who box professionally. Liam Smith lost a junior middleweight world title by ninth-round knockout to Canelo Alvarez on Sept. 17; Callum Smith is a super middleweight contender; and Paul Smith has challenged twice for the super middleweight title.Stephen Smith challenged junior lightweight titlist Jose Pedraza on April 16 at the Foxwoods resort in Mashantucket, Connecticut, on a Showtime-televised card, but Smith lost a unanimous decision in a competitive fight. He rebounded with a seventh-round knockout of Daniel Eduardo Brizuela on May 29 and iss excited to get another chance at a world title. Cheap Steelers Jerseys. Im delighted to have this fight, really grateful for the opportunity as I believe its a fight I will win, Smith told on Saturday. The fact that I got the chance so soon after Pedraza was even better. I was happy to fight again straight after that fight (against Brizuela), and it has proved beneficial now with this opportunity coming about.I think Sosa is a good, solid fighter without being spectacular in any area in particular. He has had a couple of decent results lately -- drawing with Walters, then beating Fortuna -- although, like many, I thought Walters won. [Sosas] confidence should be high, and I should be facing him at his best, which Im relishing.Promoter Sampson Lewkowicz, who represents Fortuna but also has options on Sosa, said the winner of Sosa-Smith will have to face Fortuna next. Fortuna (30-1-1, 22 KOs), of the Dominican Republic, has the contractual right to a rematch against Sosa or to a fight against an opponent who defeats him.Fortuna, 27, rebounded from the loss to Sosa with a second-round knockout of countryman Marlyn Cabrera on Sept. 23.One of the fights in the works for the card is a rematch between former super middleweight titleholder Arthur Abraham (45-5, 30 KOs) of Germany, and Englands Martin Murray (33-4-1, 16 KOs). Abraham, 36, claimed a split decision against Murray in a November 2015 title defense.Abraham lost the 168-pound belt in his next fight to Mexicos Gilberto Ramirez but rebounded with a win on July 16. Murray, 34, bounced back with a win after the loss to Abraham but then lost his next bout, a unanimous 12-round decision to countryman George Groves on June 25.

Katherine Legge and Cara Adams are used to being strong female role models in the male-dominated sport of auto racing. Buy Cheap Packers Jerseys .But last weekend the two friends showed their strength in a different way.With the goal of raising $5,000 for the Scott Rigsby Foundation and its efforts to enable individuals with disabilities to live a healthy, active lifestyle by improving access to Prosthetic and Orthotic (P&O) care and resources, Adams and Legge competed in their first triathlon -- the Ironman 70.3 Augusta.Legge, an accomplished sports car and IndyCar racer, beat her personal goal of completing the 70.3 miles (actually, 71.3 thanks to a construction detour that added a mile to the bicycle leg that included two steep hills) in less than six hours by clocking in at 5:56:42.Adams, a certified gearhead who works on a hot rod Mustang and brews beer in her spare time, was recently promoted to chief engineer and manager of race tire development for Bridgestone Americas. Cheered on by her husband Alexis, who logged more than 20,000 steps on the day, she battled the Georgia heat (it was 91 degrees at the finish) to finish in 7:25.Together, they raised $5,120 for the foundation named after Rigsby, who lost his legs in a traffic accident when he was 18. More than 20 years later, Rigsby used training for the 2007 Hawaii Ironman as a motivational tool to get his own life together and inspire others.Mission accomplished. Womens Packers Jerseys . Halifax beat the Saint John Sea Dogs 7-5 on the strength of two goals apiece from Nikolaj Ehlers, Matt Murphy and Brent Andrews.

Booth picked up 65 caps after making her national team debut in 2002 at the age of 17. She most recently played for Sky Blue FC of the National Womens Soccer League. "It just felt like it was my time to move on," she said in a phone interview from her hometown of Burlington, Ont. . They reached the 100-point plateau for the fourth time in five games, bested the visiting Trail Blazers by 34 in the paint and scored 19 of the final 25 points in regulation. It didnt seem that long ago that the Montreal Impact were among the top teams in MLS and in the hunt for the Eastern Conference championship.Three losses in a four-game winless stretch, however, sunk the Impacts title hopes and has forced the club to scramble for playoff spot. Montreal will look to alter its recent fortune on Wednesday when the reeling San Jose Earthquakes pay a visit.The Impact (9-10-11, 38 points) are in fifth place in the Eastern Conference with four matches remaining, just one point ahead of D.C. United and two in front of New England as the three teams battle for the conferences final two postseason spots.A win could help Montreal move closer to surpassing Philadelphia for the No. 4 seed, which comes with a first-round home playoff game.San Jose (7-9-13, 34 points) is in ninth place in the Western Conference with five matches to play.One of the keys to success for Montreal is finding a way to get striker Didier Drogba on track. The Ivory Coast national had 11 goals in 11 appearances in 2015 for the Impact but has just 10 in 21 games this season.Drogba, who signed with the Impact in the summer of 2015, had only one shot in 46 touches in Montreals 1-0 loss at the New York Red Bulls on Saturday.The second year, its always a more difficult one, Montreal coach Mauro Bielloo said. Cheap Packers Jerseys. Opposing defenders are getting ready to face him. At the end, hes having chances at home to score goals. Its about finding that bounce and hopefully it will turn for him.The Earthquakes are still eligible to earn a playoff berth but will have to drastically reverse a trend that has seen them win only once in the past 10 matches. San Jose has three losses and three draws since a 2-1 win at Vancouver on Aug. 12 and is just 1-3-6 since July 16.San Jose likely will be without starting forward Quincy Amarikwa, who suffered a leg injury on Saturday in the Earthquakes 2-1 loss at home to Sporting Kansas City.The midweek match is a quick turnaround for San Jose after Saturdays loss. After a cross-continent trip to Montreal, the Earthquakes fly back home to face Real Salt Lake on Oct. 1, a third match in eight days.It is a very important game, Earthquakes defender Andres Imperiale said. Montreal is a team that plays very well, especially at home, so for us it is going to be difficult. It is going to be a long flight. It is not easy when you play three games and have to fly so we have to recover, we have to be honest with ourselves and be 100 percent.

LONDON -- The Russian husband and wife team who felt betrayed by the IOC after blowing the whistle on state-sponsored doping in their homeland are now being offered financial and other assistance by the Olympic body. Discount Saints Jerseys .The International Olympic Committee said Monday that it was providing career opportunities to 800-meter runner Yulia Stepanova and her husband, Vitaly Stepanov, a former Russian anti-doping official.Stepanova is being given financial support, while her husband will work as a consultant for the IOC on doping matters, the committee said in a statement to The Associated Press.The couple have been living at an undisclosed location in the United States since providing information to German broadcaster ARD and others that helped expose systematic cheating in Russia.Their testimony played a central role in the IAAFs decision to suspend Russias track and field federation from global competition and exclude all but one member of its team from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in August.The IOC faced harsh criticism after rejecting calls to ban Russia entirely from the games and turning down Stepanovas application to compete in Rio as an independent athlete.The couple met with IOC President Thomas Bach in September to discuss the committees offer of assistance in their careers, the IOC said in an email.After the couple reached out to the IOC, Yuliya Stepanova is being given financial and other assistance so that she can continue her sports career and potentially join a national Olympic committee, the IOC said.Its unclear which national Olympic body Stepanova could represent, although the U.S. would be a possibility since the couple have been living there.Her husband, meanwhile, will be providing a consultancy service to the IOC on all aspects of doping control and the protection of clean athletes, the statement said.Stepanova was part of the Russian doping system for years and served a two-year drug ban imposed by the IAAF. After she and her husband turned whistleblowers, the IAAF recommended that she be eligible to compete as a neutral athlete.Stepanova did run as an independent athlete at the European Championships in July, but finished last in her 80-meter heat as she struggled with a foot injury.The IOC rejected her bid to run at the Olympics, citing her past doping case and saying she did not satisfy the ethical requirements to compete at the games.At the time, Vitaly Stepanov labeled the IOCs offer to bring them to the Olympics to watch the games as VIP guests a bribe.Stepanova also criticized the IOC, saying, They never tried to understand our situation. They simply say whatever is going to serve them.The couple said recently they feared for their safety and had switched residences after hackers breached a World Anti-Doping Agency database that records Stepanovas whereabouts.Bach said in Rio that the IOC was not responsible for dangers to which Mrs. Stepanova may be exposed.

England reached the semi-finals of the World T20, in which they will play New Zealand on Wednesday, with a 10-run win over Sri Lanka in Delhi.Morgans side have already exceeded their performances at the 50-over World Cup, where they failed to get out of the group. Win World T20 or be forgotten Trevor Bayliss says England must win title or be forgotten And the captain has been surprised at the rapid progress the team has made since their dismal displays at that tournament 12 months ago.Ive been asked the question a couple of times and I cant quite believe where we are in terms of our 20-over cricket and our one-day cricket, he said.The guys weve selected have done outstandingly well and have shown a great attitude playing against very good sides who knock you back. Coming into this tournament we talked about emulating the fashion in which New Zealand played in the World Cup and the aggressive nature in which they went about their game, particularly with the ball. Eoin Morgan Every question that has been asked of us we have given a counter answer or a more aggressive option.Morgan felt the one-day international series against New Zealand last June was vital to the teams transformation, primarily because it helped provide a blueprint for the new aggression in the teams bowling attack.The New Zealand series was very important. Coming into this tournament we talked about emulating the fashion in which they played in the World Cup and the aggressive nature in which they went about their game, particularly with the ball.Their swing bowlers were outstanding and that encourages a positive mind set throughout everything that you do - with the bat it can come more naturally. They did play a key part for us, absolutely.Morgan was not always part of a team that needed to overcome the odds or play catch-up in the shortest format.In 2010 he was a key member of the England side that, albeit briefly, became market leaders by winning the World T20 in the Caribbean. Wholesale Saints Jerseys. He is the sole survivor from that vintage though the man who lifted the trophy, Paul Collingwood, is part of the coaching staff, an omen that has not gone unnoticed in the camp.And, looking around a buoyant dressing room, it is not the only parallel Morgan recognises. Eoin Morgan insists that England arent looking past their World T20 semi-final against New Zealand I see a few actually, he said.The main one would be how relaxed everybody is around the group. How much they are enjoying the challenge of playing international cricket at the moment and their hunger to win.It is all right having fun and enjoying what you are doing but if you dont have that inner drive to want to improve and win games of cricket you are going to stand still for a long time. This side has shown strengths which are similar [to 2010].England (probable): A Hales, J Roy, J Root, E Morgan (capt), J Buttler (wkt), B Stokes, M Ali, C Jordan, D Willey, A Rashid, L Plunkett.New Zealand (possible): M Guptill, K Williamson (capt), C Munro, R Taylor, C Anderson, G Elliott, L Ronchi (wkt), T Southee, M Santner, M McClenaghan, I Sodhi.Watch England take on New Zealand in the semi-final of the ICC World Twenty20 from 1.30pm on Wednesday, on Sky Sports 2.

STILLWATER, Okla. Youth Maple Leafs Jerseys . -- Jordan Burtons Thanksgiving feast last week resembled most any other.His plate included dressing with cranberry sauce, corn, green beans, mashed potatoes and, of course, yams.But the Oklahoma State senior outside linebacker omitted the cornerstone of the Thanksgiving meal: the turkey.Since the summer, Burton has been a pescatarian and doesnt eat any land-walking animals.The decision can be traced to a lingering ankle injury. Burton hurt his ankle in Week 6 last season but played on the bad leg. He skipped spring practice before finally having surgery over the summer.After the surgery, Burton was trying to find any edge that would help him recover in time for his final college season. After reading about Arizona Cardinals all-pro safety Tyrann Mathieu going vegan to help overcome a knee injury, Burton opted to change his diet, which had previously included up to five Chick-fil-A chicken sandwiches a week.I figured going vegan would probably be a little too hard, probably a little too expensive for a college kid, Burton said. So I tried pescatarian -- and its been working pretty good.Not only did Burton return remarkably in time for Oklahoma States opener against Southeastern Louisiana, he has delivered another banner season for the 10th-ranked Cowboys, who travel to No. 8 Oklahoma on Saturday in a showdown that will determine the Big 12 title.Appearing in all but one game this season, Burton, who was an AP All-Big 12 selection last year, is fifth on the Cowboys with 55 tackles. He also has four tackles for loss and two interceptions.I could feel the change with the diet alone, without even running, Burton said. I was getting in shape before I started to have to run. The third and fourth quarter last year, Id be gassed. Now I feel fresh.In the beginning, Burton kept his dietary decision to himself. He didnt know how his friends or teammates would react. But once they found out, not only did they not give him flak, they went to him for nutritional advice. That was especially true after watching him make a rapid recovery from the ankle injury while trimming his body fat from 13.4 to 8.4 or so percent.Among those who went to him for advice was defensive tackle Vincent Taylor, who wanted to lose belly fat, and safety Kenneth Edison-McGruder, who had difficulty getting his weight down. Sometimes, when Burton cooks, he makes extra for Edison-McGruder, who is now at his goal weight.I have people all the time ask me, Hey, Im trying to lose weight, or trying to maintain this weight, or trying to feel better in the fourth quarter, what are you eating? Burton said. Ive had people hit me up on Twitter, asking what Ive been eating, soccer players asking.In the team dining room, Oklahoma State nutritionist Charles Hewitt has tried to cater to Burtons dietary restrictions, offering a seafood item with almost every meal. Hewitt says because of Burton, he has seen other members of the team pay more attention to what they put in their bodies.He sets an example, as an older team member, that values that aspect of his performance, Hewitt said. Other guys have seen him make that a priority, that hes not going to eat fried chicken, he not going to eat steak.Burton said becoming a pescatarian wasnt as difficult as he thought it might be. Before giving up chicken, he had already cut out pork and beef. He still goes to Chick-fil-A, only for a snack, ordering a salad with nuts, berries and ranch dressing.To keep his weight up, Burton eats four or five times daily, including oatmeal and pancakes for breakfast, peanut butter and jelly or tuna sandwiches for lunch, and fish, rice and broccoli for dinner. Burton also loves and chugs chocolate milk throughout the day for extra calories.Originally, Burton didnt give up eating land-walking animals for moral reasons. But once PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) learned of Burtons decision through a video he did with the university, they sent a letter praising his choice.Were big fans of yours, the letter read. We were so thrilled to hear you talk about your switch to a plant-based diet and happy that its working so well for you. Thanks for being a friend to the animals, and for spreading the word! Were happy to count you amongst the outstanding athletes who recognize that plant-power is the way to go.According to PETA senior vice president Lisa Lange, PETA wanted to send Burton a gift basket full of vegan options. But then they learned that would constitute an NCAA violation.Jordan is setting a wonderful example, Lange said. Because of the status of some of these football players, where so many younger football players look up to them, theres a domino effect. They see how quickly they recover, how theyre so strong and so lean, because of what theyre eating. Other athletes are going to want to follow suit.Burton has come to appreciate the moral side of being a practicing pescatarian. Once PETA sent him the letter and followed him on Twitter, he followed them back.Ive watched their videos, Burton said. I feel more connected, more so now, to the moral aspect of not killing animals on top of the nutritional aspect.It only reinforced why I was doing it -- and gave me another reason to do it.

FORT WORTH, Texas -- A rodeo promoter is suing two star calf ropers, accusing them of rigging an event in Arlington, Texas, last year so that they could get a cut of a possible $1 million prize.RFD-TV Events made the allegations in a lawsuit Tuesday against three-time world champion calf roper Tuf Cooper and the worlds current top-ranked roper, Timber Moore. The alleged scheme centered on a bonus reward for those who qualified for the event rather than being invited, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram ( ) reported.

ATLANTA -- Upset by what he saw on the field last week, Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson is taking a more active role with the offense ahead of his teams game against No. Cheap Wild Jerseys . 14 Miami.The Yellow Jackets were held to only 124 yards in a 24-7 loss to No. 5 Clemson, a low during Johnsons nine years at the helm of the program, and he is trying to make sure his usually productive spread-option attack returns to form against Miami.Johnson said Tuesday he is demanding answers from his players and assistants. He praised Clemsons defense but said he saw far too many missed assignments in the loss he called a train wreck.Well see how we do this week but clearly weve got to play better, Johnson said, adding the lack of offense was totally uncharacteristic for any of his teams, including during his time at Georgia Southern and Navy.Weve got to do it better, he said. Weve got to play better. Weve got to coach better. Its like I told our assistant coaches, youre accountable for the way theyre playing just like Im accountable for the results.Johnson already is heavily involved as offensive coordinator. He calls the plays during games and takes the lead in constructing game plans.This week he is trying to send a message by taking a more direct role.The team aspect, from start to finish, Im going to have my hands on it, he said, adding the change doesnt mean he lacks confidence in his assistants.Weve got guys over there who have been in this offense for 25 years, Johnson said. They know what theyre doing. Its just more of an emphasis maybe when Im standing over there. And more of an emphasis when Im hands-on.Johnson has reason to react quickly to the first loss for Georgia Tech (3-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference). The Yellow Jackets finished 3-9 in 2015, their first losing season under Johnson. A second straight loss to Miami (3-0) could erode confidence.Johnson sat in the offenses team meeting on Monday and challenged players to explain missed assignments.I wanted them to know thats unacceptable and I wanted some answers from them, he said. I wanted to know why did this happen. What was the problem? Is this so confusing to you that you dont know what youre doing? Did somebody tell you to do that? And I also wanted some accountability in front of the whole group.Johnson said Georgia Tech cant afford mistakes against teams like Clemson and Miami.Were not going to have better athletes than Clemson, he said. Were not. But that doesnt mean we cant beat them if you go out and execute and play. But youre not going to beat them if you have 25 missed assignments because you dont give yourself a chance to execute.Miami will be Georgia Techs first ACC Coastal Division game.We cant harp on it, said quarterback Justin Thomas. Weve got our whole division that we still have to play that we havent started on yet. Everything that weve got to look forward to at the end of the season is still right here in front of us.Georgia Techs offense could face another tough test this week. The Hurricanes lead the nation with their average of only 7.7 points allowed under first-year coach Mark Richt, the former Georgia coach. Miami launched the Richt era with lopsided wins over Florida A&M, Florida Atlantic and Appalachian State.---AP college football website: Discount Wild Jerseys . - Levi Browns tenure at left tackle for the Pittsburgh Steelers is over before it even began.

Youth Wild Jerseys. 35)Its the next step for me and Im really excited, Bell said. Im looking forward to the experience and going to try to make the most out of it.The Pirates selected Bell with the first pick of the second round of the 2011 amateur draft from Dallas Jesuit College Prep. During his senior season, Bell wrote to all 30 major league teams and asked them not to draft him because he planned to honor his commitment to play at the University of Texas.However, the Pirates persuades him to pass up the scholarship by giving him a $5 million signing bonus, the largest for a player chosen after the first round.
