TSNs Jack Armstrong offers his thoughts on Thunder GM Sam Presti, The Eastern and Western Conference finals, the firing of Vinny Del Negro in Los Angeles and Mike Krzyzewski returning to Team USA. Masahiro Tanaka Jersey . 1. Sam Presti (Thunder GM): As I watch the first two games of the Memphis-San Antonio series, I keep telling myself that neither team is better than the Thunder if James Harden is still there this season, even if Russell Westbrook is injured for the Playoffs. The Thunder would win the West with Durant and Harden in my opinion.  Look at Thursdays announcement of the All NBA Teams, Kevin Durant along with Westbrook and Harden were selected to the Teams.  OKC has three of the top 15 players in the league.  As a GM, you to hold onto them as LONG as you possibly can and if you need to do a salary dump for luxury tax/cap purposes you do it after you give this thing as much of a chance to win a title.  You owe it to your fans. With all due respect to Kevin Martin, he isnt even close to James Harden and we saw it in the Memphis series.  Martin is a nice player but not a difference maker.  Harden was a restricted free agent at the end of this season.  The Thunder should have played it out for this season and maybe even another year/two to give themselves more time to win it.  Instead they jump the gun and miss an opportunity. Has the window shut in OKC?  No way, but when I look at a guy like Kendrick Perkins I shake my head because he looks like a guy thats aged a bunch in the past 18 months.   You dont get many chances in a market like OKC, so you must capitalize.  Sometimes folks Over-Think issues, which I think Presti did.                      2. Memphis vs. San Antonio: The Grizzlies have to win four of the next five games to get to the NBA Finals, and I think they can do it.  Will they? Not likely but it wouldnt shock me.  I look at the Grizzlies and the whole key is going to be taking care of the ball and slowing the pace of play down considerably.  Memphis needs to get into the power-game mode with points in the paint and rebound differential.  The Spurs are one of those team that if you can take away transition and guard the three-point line you give yourself a chance.  The Mike Conley-Tony Parker match-up will still prove to be a huge factor.  The Grizzlies must keep Parker out of the lane and Conley needs to play at the elite level weve seen from him in the past few months.  Its do-able yet not going to be easy.                     3. Pacers vs. Heat: Paul George was brilliant late in Game 1 and gave his team chances to win, yet in the defining moment he allowed LeBron James an easy look.  I would like to have seen George play sound and make James shoot a contested Jumper.  Im sure coach Frank Vogel didnt sleep well last night having his rim protector Roy Hibbert on the bench with him.  Was it a mistake?  I say yes. You always make a team beat you on the perimeter with a hand in the face. You cant allow an opponent to have a easy shot in the heart of your defense at crunch time. I know match-ups were a concern yet the Heat needed to know by Hibberts presence that youre dictating to them the type of shot theyre going to have to take.  Indy looks like they can play with the Heat and they believe they can yet a loss like that is the defining moment.  Either the Pacers get by it and prove that theyre truly better or that loss will crush them.                     4. Vinny Del Negro (Clippers): He sets a franchise record in wins and loses his Job.  The NBA is a great business aint it?  Youve got to win in the playoffs.  This is the best available job (Brooklyn Nets are the second best) in the NBA right now.  The Coach they hire will surely be a guy that will pass Chris Pauls inspection.  The Clippers must hold on to Paul in free agency.  This hire will set the stage for whether Paul sticks around and if they can take that next step as a franchise.  This is a defining moment. 5. Mike Krzyzewski (Duke & Team USA): Stick with what works.  Back for the 2016 Olympics. If youre USA GM, Jerry Colangelo you do everything in your power to convince him that he needs to give you one more run.  Mission accomplished. Coach K has amazing leadership, coaching and most importantly, people skills.  He gets it".  Players respect him and play hard for him.  Only truly talented coaches can lead the best and get the most out of them.  He does it beautifully.   Ichiro Suzuki Jersey . -- Playing time has been limited for Maxim Tissot this season, so the Montreal Impact defender made the most of his first scoring opportunity on Saturday. Reggie Jackson Jersey . -- Claudio Bieler hadnt scored since early September, and not from the run of play since mid-July. http://www.authenticbaseballshopyankees.com/black-25-mark-teixeira-womens-jersey/ . Neymar curled home a free kick from just outside the area to put the 2014 World Cup host ahead in the 44th minute. Three minutes after the break, a simple through pass from Paulinho freed Oscar and the Chelsea star rounded goalkeeper Jung Sung-ryong to extend Brazils lead. St Kildas late finals push might have come to nothing but dont try telling the Saints that Sundays clash with Brisbane is a dead rubber.An upset loss to the Lions would leave Alan Richardsons side with an 11-11 win-loss record and feeling their encouraging 2016 campaign deserved better.Weve spoken about finishing strongly with a positive win-loss ratio, Saints defender Shane Savage told AAP.It was great that we were able to at least put ourselves in that finals conversation for a while there.We wanted to take a few scalps in the second half of the year, and we did that, and we feel like this game will be important to help us take some momentum into next year.Its been a really positive season ... weve been able to take some really big strides forward this year and we want to finish that off well.St Kilda have easily surpassed their previous best season under Richardson - last years six-win campaign - and will finish ninth regardless of the result against the Lions.The Etihad Stadium encountter will also be significant for the two inclusions in the team who defeated Richmond. Didi Gregorius Jersey. Defender Brandon White will make his AFL debut and veteran back man Sam Fisher returns from a hamstring strain for what could be his 228th and final game.The 34-year-old was yet to receive a contract offer from the Saints for next season, but Richardson said recently no decision had been made on his playing future.Fish has been a pivotal player for the team for a number of years, Savage said.His wealth of experience has been really beneficial for our younger guys. Hes really taken our young defenders under his wing and helped them out a lot.Hes had a really positive impact for a long time now.Brisbane will hope to send off a veteran defender of their own in full-back Daniel Merrett, who will play his 200th and final game after announcing his retirement this week. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

?YPSILANTI, Mich. Eric Decker Jersey . ?-- Eastern Michigan University strongly supports the right of students to peacefully demonstrate about issues that are important to them, the schools president said Saturday, a day after students took to the field after a football game to protest racist graffiti that showed up on campus earlier in the week.The student protest on the Rynearson Stadium field after Eastern Michigans 27-24 victory over Wyoming on Friday night was peaceful. During the game, students sat peacefully and talked to president James Smith. They moved outside the end zone area in the closing moments before walking onto the field chanting, No justice! No peace!We have great respect for our students engaged in the constructive efforts underway to address the issues we face, Smith said in a statement released Saturday.Spray-painted graffiti that included the letters KKK and a racial epithet was found Tuesday on the exterior wall of a building on the Ypsilanti campus. Another racial slur was found Wednesday.Both have been removed and Eastern Michigan said it is trying to identify those responsible. Smith said those responsible would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and that any students who may have been involved would be expelled.A group of students protesting the graffiti were marching Tuesday from the campus to Smiths home when a motorist slowly drove through the crowd in an SUV, damaging a motorcycle. No injuries were reported and sheriffs deputies are investigating the incident.Nationally, protests have followed the fatal shootings of blacks by law enforcement.A fifth day of rallies was held Saturday in Charlotte, North Carolina, after the fatal shooting earlier in the week of a black man by police. Some of the demonstrations were violent and North Carolinas National Guard was called in Thursday to maintain order.Eastern Michigan senior Demajae Muray told The Ann Arbor News Friday night that the Rynearson Stadium protest was peaceful.Were still trying to bring awareness because we feel like they are not doing anything about what happened, Muray said of school officials handling of the graffiti issue. ``This is the perfect opportunity to do that. Derrick Morgan Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. Johnathan Cyprien Jersey . - Connor McDavid scored 53 seconds into overtime as the Erie Otters came from behind to defeat the visiting Guelph Storm 4-3 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. http://www.titansauthenticofficialonline.com/authentic-jayon-brown-jersey.html . Its 1987 and a Brazilian playmaker, known as Mirandinha, is being paraded around St James Park to the passionate Newcastle fans.CLEVELAND, Ohio - In this day and age, a manager will gladly take the pitching line Josh Johnson served up. Seven innings, two earned runs on three hits, two walks and six strikeouts. Only five base runners against and five three-up, three-down frames. "Thats what we look for out of him," said manager John Gibbons. "If he can do that every time he goes out there, weve got a shot. It was a lot like that game in San Francisco when he came back from his arm injury. He pitched a heck of a ballgame." Just one problem: the Blue Jays didnt score and in the process, wasted one of the best efforts Johnson has given the club in his injury-interrupted, disappointing first season in Toronto. In a 3-0 loss, it was the fourth inning which proved to be the difference. The game was scoreless. The Jays already had stranded four runners, two of them in scoring position, over the first three innings. Colby Rasmus led off with an opposite field double. Maicer Izturis followed with a first pitch single through the right side and suddenly Toronto had runners at the corners with nobody out. But, like with prior opportunities and similar to those that would come, the Jays offence couldnt produce. Rajai Davis hit a comebacker to Indians starter Ubaldo Jimenez, who froze Rasmus at third and took the force out of Izturis at second. Davis promptly stole second base with J.P. Arencibia at the plate. Arencibia, however, struck out looking and Emilio Bonifacio flied out. Inning over, more runners stranded, another chance squandered. With one out in their half of the fourth, the Indians drew their first base runner when Johnson walked Asdrubal Cabrera. Jason Kipnis followed with Clevelands first hit of the night, a single up the middle. Two hits later, RBI singles by Nick Swisher and Michael Brantley, the Indians had a 2-0 lead and the momentum in the game. Clevelands only other chance to score came in the eighth when Drew Stubbs doubled off Steve Delabar. A sacrifice bunt and a sacrifice fly later, it was 3-0 Indians. It was a case of Cleveland doing a lot with a little and the Blue Jays doing nothing with more than enough. "We just couldnt get anything going tonight," said Gibbons. "Even in that last inning we had a couple of guys on but we couldnt string any or hit a ball in a gap or anything like that." There is Johnson, stuck on one win, called upon to pitch inside and to be more aggressive and to trust his stuff, admitting the lack of success is mentally taxing. It must be, considering he was a key piece of oone of general manager Alex Anthopoulos offseason blockbusters and hes an impending free agent whose value is slipping. Marcus Mariota Jersey. "Youve always got to stay positive," said Johnson. "Youve got to find a way to stay positive. Its tough at times but youve got to find a way. Youve got some good teammates here who definitely help you through it and always be positive and there for you to help you get through it." Johnson also has his manager, Gibbons, who rarely makes mound visits when hes not going to change the pitcher. Gibbons made an exception in that fourth inning, as Johnson was struggling. "Thats between us," said Gibbons, when asked his message for Johnson. "He said youve got this and thats pretty much it," said Johnson. "Maybe a little bit more than that but just believe in yourself, dont worry about it and go get em." Its easier said than done, as Johnson is finding out this season. Hell take his fourth attempt at a second victory in the Blue Jays final game before the All-Star break, on Sunday in Baltimore. The Orioles are the only team Johnsons beaten this season. ROTATING THE ROTATION Thanks to the off day Monday, manager John Gibbons is afforded the opportunity to juggle his starting rotation. R.A. Dickey will now pitch on Thursday afternoon against the Indians. Hell be on regular four days of rest. Mark Buehrle will be pushed back to Friday, the opener of a three-game series in Baltimore. Based on numbers, the move makes sense. In three starts against the Orioles this season, Dickey is 0-2 with a 7.71 ERA. Buehrle, strangely, has yet to pitch against Baltimore this season despite the Jays and Orioles having hooked up for 10 games over three series. LAWRIE AT SECOND BASE Brett Lawrie, on the disabled list since May 29th with a left ankle sprain, arrived in Syracuse in time to be in the starting lineup for the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons on Tuesday night. That Lawrie was promoted as a continuation of his rehab assignment is hardly surprising. That he started at second base caught observers attention and renewed speculation the club may be considering a move. Remember Lawrie, 23, played two rehab games at second base for Single-A Dunedin in April. At the time, Lawrie was recovering from a strained oblique suffered before the World Baseball Classic. The plug quickly was pulled on the experiment, and Lawrie was brought back to the big leagues, when Jose Reyes went down with an ankle injury on April 12. In 37 games this season, Lawrie is hitting .209/.268/.374 with five home runs and 14 RBI. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Miki Agrawal is passionate about periods. Thiago Alcantara Jersey .?In fact, shes the co-founder of THINX -- a company, which among other things, develops underwear that absorbs menstrual blood without the additional use of tampons, pads or a cup.?So, when Chinese swimmer Fu Yuanhui made headlines for discussing her time of the month at the Rio Olympics, we knew she would be the best person to dissect the culture-shifting moment.Here, the former semi-pro soccer player and serial entrepreneur discusses playing sports while on your period, disrupting the feminine hygiene market and removing the social stigma that surrounds menstruation. This interview has been edited for length.espnW: Bronze medalist Fu Yuanhui made headlines for telling the world she was on her period during the Olympic games. What were your initial thoughts and reactions?Miki Agrawal: It was amazing. Her candor liberated so many women. In particular, those in Asian countries [where its often] taboo to talk about periods. The fact that she was so open and without shame was empowering and absolutely worth being a headline.espnW: As a former semi-professional athlete, has your period ever impacted your performance? Agrawal: In my past life, I was a [competitive soccer player for the New York Magic], and all three of my ACL tears happened during menstruation. Your ligaments are far more brittle and malleable when youre on your period. However, there isnt much research on the connection between that time of the month and the common injury. But there should be. So, yes, my period has definitely impacted my performance.espnW: What inspired you to create THINX? Agrawal: I was frustrated with the offerings in the marketplace. Think about how many pairs of underwear youve ruined while on your period? And what about your sheets, clothes and everything else? [Women] are spending all this time cleaning up, or putting sweaters around our waists. Weve had the same options for the for the last 50-plus years. The tampon was invented in 1931 by [Dr. Earle Haas], a man. The last real innovation was adding a strip underneath the pad to stop it from moving around, which [Stayfree] created in 1969. Now, the menstrual cup is here, but it hasnt been popularized globally. My overall goal and purpose is to make the experience of getting your period easier.espnW: How does your patented underwear work? Agrawal: It took three to four years to develop this product. This is the first real [menstruation] product for the mass market developed by women and for women. My partners and I wanted the consumer to feel like they were wearing regular underwear; not anything bulky and uncomfortable. When you bleed into [the underwear], its innermost layer wicks away moisture. So, youre not sitting in a pool of blood, but rather a regular pair of panties that remain dry. They are also antimicrobial and breathable. The whole system of layers really works like magic, but they look like regular underwear and are able to absorb about two tampons worth of blood.espnW: Youve also created a sports variation, which specifically caters to active women. What are the key differences with this design?Agrawal: They dont feature lace trim, and have comfort-fit leg with a cotton interior. When youre exercising, your body needs more room to breathe, and we understand that. Now, women can keep their heads in the game.espnW: Please discuss The Week, your micro-documentary that hopes to remove the stigma from menstruation. Howd you get notable women like Joy Bryant, Jackie Tohn, Sophia Bush and others to discuss their periods in such a public manner? Agrawal: They are all very vocal feminists. If you enter a conversation with confidence, it basically gives others permission to do the same. If Im coming to talk about that time of the month and Im embarrassed about, then youll react that way. If I speak to you in a confident manner, then youll be confident as well. It has really helped women discuss menstruation publicly.espnW: THINX has a donation for purchase (one-to-one) partnership with AFRIpads. Please discuss the program.Agrawal: I travel often, and Ive seen first-hand what women in developing countries go through while on their periods. Could you imagine bleeding on to your bed -- in a hut, with no feminine hygiene products around, and often times very little underwear? I cant.So, I scoured planet earth to find the right partners and hopefully make a difference. Luckily, we found AFRIpads, which is based in Uganda, and they make washable and reusable cloth pads at a reasonable price. The product costs between $2 and $5 dollars for the whole year, and come in three or five pad kits. [The pads] dry quickly in the sun, are affordable, and help develop the local economy. Weve helped AFRIpads grow from 25 to 175 employees. Its been amazing thing to witness. Asier Illarramendi Jersey .

Our guys arent dreading it at all. Theyre looking forward to being in that arena and being on that stage because theyve earned the right to be there.Dickerson, in a 2 for 28 slide, tied the score 6-all with an RBI single in the fifth and got the decisive hit during the seventh off Mychal Givens (8-2).J.J.

TOKYO -- Tokyos first female governor said Monday she will use her platform to host a cost-efficient and environmentally friendly 2020 Olympics and push a womens rights agenda that she hopes will be a model for Japans central government. Jon Ryan Jersey .Yuriko Koike, elected in a sweeping victory last month, said in an interview that reduce, reuse and recycle of waste and temporary facilities will be her slogan for the Tokyo 2020 Summer Games. The estimated cost of hosting the Olympics has spiraled.Because Japan is prone to earthquakes, buildings and even temporary facilities have to be quake-resistant, contributing to the bulging Olympic costs, she said.We should focus more on sustainability and credibility in planning the Olympics, Koike told The Associated Press, adding that she will use her expertise as a former environment minister. The triple-R of reduce, reuse and recycle perfectly fits global sustainability and waste management.She noted there is a Japanese word that expresses the idea -- mottainai, meaning what a waste. For instance, Koike said, the idea is demonstrated in the Japanese Shinto tradition of rebuilding the holiest shrine of Ise every 20 years, in which some old materials are reused.Preparations are under way for the 2020 Olympics, but they have been plagued with problems. An initial main stadium design by an Iraqi-born architect, the late Zaha Hadid, was scrapped because of soaring costs. The official Olympic logo was delayed until this year after an earlier pick was scrapped over plagiarism allegations. Then there was a questionable payment to a Singaporean firm in relation to Tokyos winning bid.Construction of the main stadium based on a new design is finally set to start toward the end of this year in Tokyo, which also hosted the Summer Olympics in 1964.Koike has pledged to examine the swelling costs to avoid saddling taxpayers with debt. She has said the problems resulted from a lack of leadership and transparency.She is also reviewing a planned relocation of Tokyos Tsukiji fish market to a site where soil is allegedly contaminated with chemicals. With the relocation linked to the construction of a main road, a delay could affect the Olympics.A veteran national lawmaker who has held top Cabinet posts including defense minister, Koike said she aims to achieve womens advancement and diversity beyond what the central government has done. She doesnt have a reputation as a feminist activist, however.The 64-year-old conservative faces challenges from the male-dominated ruling party that she defied to run for governor. Koike had been kept out of the loop under Prime Minister Shinzo Abes leadership.The percentage of female employees in the Tokyo metropolitan government is already larger than in the national government, Koike said, adding that she will further push for womens advancement as she encourages diversity overall. She said Japanese tolerance of overtime should also be corrected, so that overtime is considered a lack of efficiency.Koike studied at American University in Cairo and speaks Arabic.Being Tokyos governor ahead of the Olympics, she said she can make good use of her unique background, understanding of Islamic culture and her female point of view.She said she is currently developing a special fabric for female Muslim athletes to use during the Olympics.Ive always wanted to be someone that people would say, `you are the only one, Koike said.---Follow Mari Yamaguchi on Twitter at twitter.com/mariyamaguchiHer work can be found at http://bigstory.ap.org/content/mari-yamaguchi Jarran Reed Jersey . -- Ohio States Urban Meyer has never had any issue acclimating to the biggest stages in college football. Luke Willson Jersey . Those lessons were more than enough to overwhelm the Utah Jazz. Lou Williams scored 25 points and the Hawks continued their offensive upswing as they rolled to an easy 118-85 victory over the Jazz on Friday night, winning their third straight and for the fourth time in five games. http://www.seahawksauthenticofficialonline.com/authentic-michael-bennett-jersey.html . Pence singled in the winning run with no outs in the ninth inning to give the Giants a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday. The case of Sebastian Vettels swearing, and the FIAs fairly gentle response to it, has highlighted the difference between industrial language that is part of any sportspersons emotional reaction in the heat of battle and a blatant insult directed at an official. There is a distinct divide between the two and Vettel jumped across that line with both feet on Sunday.He was understandably incensed by what turned out to be a breakdown in communications over whether or not Max Verstappen should allow the Ferrari through after the earlier overtaking incident. Being backed into the other Red Bull was clearly the final straw.Vettels tirade was also a public venting of frustration that has been building all season thanks to Ferraris abysmal failure to give the German a car worthy of the podium, never mind the win everyone expected after the first race in Australia.But none of that is an excuse for openly berating an official and adding insult to injury with the disrespectful choice of words. Equally unacceptable is the argument that this was a private conversation that FOM unfairly chose to broadcast.Vettel is not alone in whingeing out loud in the knowledge that the Race Director is listening. In the light of fairly tedious races these days, we need these colourful interludes across the airwaves even if the aim of many complaints is simply to mark Charlie Whitings card.Vettel knew exactly what he was doing and should consider himself fortunate that Max Mosley is no longer President of the FIA since Mosley would have been less likely to adopt the moderate response of his successor. It may have been a heat of the moment outburst but that is the instigator of most instances of cutting invective that are regretted moments after the words have been spat in the directiion of the perceived offender. Cortez Kennedy Jersey. Nonetheless, Vettel was explicit and public in his disrespect.Comparisons have been drawn with football. Surprisingly, perhaps, swearing has never been a serious issue - at least with players. According to my former Observer colleague and experienced football writer, Paul Wilson, this has been accepted as part of the game - but with the exception of referees not being targeted for abuse. Wilson quotes a documentary about 20 years ago during which referee David Elleray was called a f------ cheat (in a game) by a player. Elleray objected to the cheat bit - but not the swearword.Similar to drivers using the radio to question a move for the information of the team (and Whiting), the procedure in football is that only captains are supposed to talk to referees if a decision or some such is being queried. If foul or abusive language is used, they can be cautioned or sent off.It seems to be working quite well, says Wilson. The players know their boundaries, and they understand that while general swearwords will not freak anyone out, they cannot harangue the referee or subject him to a tirade of personal abuse. I cant remember anyone serving a suspension for foul and abusive language. You might get booked or sent off, thats all.During an Aviva Premiership match in 2013, Dylan Hartley, the captain of Northampton Saints rugby team, called the referee a f------ cheat. Despite later claiming he was addressing another player, Hartley immediately received a red card.Vettel did not go that far with his invective. But it was close. He can count himself lucky -- and hes bright enough to realize that. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Luke Donald survived a six-man play-off on Tuesday to secure qualification for next weeks US Open in Pennsylvania. Caleb Swanigan Jersey . The former world No 1 was among six players chasing five spots in the sudden-death play-off, held at Wedgewood Country Club in Ohio.The 38-year-old Englishman was one of 103 golfers taking part in the 36-hole sectional qualifying event, where 13 US Open slots were up for grabs. Rounds of 68 and 69 left Donald in a tie for ninth alongside Jason Allred, Richard Schembechler, Daniel Summerhays, Patrick Rodgers and amateur Scottie Scheffler, who needed to single putt the final green to join this group.After rain meant the play-off couldnt be held on Monday, Donald returned to par the first two extra holes before Summerhays was eliminated when he missed a five-foot putt on the second additional hole. Missing accomplished! Donald said on his Instagram account. This piece of paper means a lot to me! Cant wait to get to Oakmont next week for the US Open.Ive had to qualify the last 2 years for the US Open, havent liked it, but somehow making it this way feels pretty damn rewarding.Mexican Carlos Ortiz led the way at Wedgewood on Monday thanks to a brace of 66s. Among the many PGA Tour players to miss out were Australian John Senden and Germanys Alex Cejka, who failed to join the play-off contestants by a single shot.Wedgewood was one of 10 American sites to host competitions on Monday, and these include Germantown Country Club in Memphis, where David Toms qualified to contest his 19th US Open. The US Open returns to the historic Oakmont Country Club next week Toms, now 49, tied for fifth at Oakmont - the venue for the 2016 tournament - nine years ago and, on Monday, posted rounds of 66 and 69, which meant he avoided a dreaded play-off by a single shot.Among those not so fortunate in Tennessee were Ben Crane, Martin Laird and Steve Stricker, who failed to make the play-off by one stroke.The qualifier in Jacksonville, Florida, was halted by severe thunderstorms and also went to an additional day, where 53-year-old three-time major winner Vijay Singh looks to earn his spot at Oakmont.Watch live coverage of the US Open on Sky Sports 4 HD from 3pm next Thursday, June 16.

The ban was upheld by the IAAF in a vote last month.The IAAF ban allows a small number of Russians to compete at the Rio Olympics if they can show they have been based outside the country and subject to testing from a respected, non-Russian anti-doping agency.Brilliantova said Sunday that she believed only two Russians woulld fit the criteria out of more than 80 who have applied to the IAAF. Wade Baldwin Jersey. While Brilliantova did not name the duo, they are likely to be U.S.-based long jumper Daria Klishina, who is a two-time European indoor champion, and Italy-based pole vaulter Alyona Lutkovskaya.In addition, the IAAF has already approved an application from Russian athlete and doping whistleblower Yulia Stepanova, whose testimony of doping within the Russian team, including undercover footage of apparent doping confessions, formed an important part of the evidence against Russia in the WADA investigation.Stepanova is due to return to competition next week at the European championships, racing in the 800 meters as a neutral athlete not representing a particular country.European Athletics said Sunday that athletes at the championships would wear bibs with messages such as I run clean, I jump clean and I throw clean in a statement against performance-enhancing drug use. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Sitting on the top of the dugout bench pregame, Athletics manager Bob Melvin looked over Great American Ball Park and figured it was a perfect stop for his struggling team. Raekwon McMillan Jersey . "Given the way weve been struggling on offence, I want them to think, Yeah, this is a good place to hit," Melvin said. So much for that idea. Even in one of the most hitter-friendly places, the As cant do much of anything these days. Jay Bruce homered and made a run-saving catch on the warning track, and Mat Latos pitched into the eighth inning against Oaklands slumping lineup on Tuesday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-1 victory. The Reds had dropped seven of nine and were coming off what players called an embarrassing weekend against St. Louis -- losses of 13-3 and 15-2. They found an American League team struggling even more. The West-leading Athletics have lost five of six, getting shut out twice during that span. It was nearly three -- Derek Norris hit a two-out homer in the ninth off Aroldis Chapman that ended Oaklands streak of 18 innings without a run. "Youve just got to play your way through it, fight your way through it, have better at-bats, get grittier, find a way to get the guy home," Melvin said. "Were not swinging our bats, theres no doubt about that. "You go through these periods, yet you try to minimize them so they dont go on too long." Latos (11-3) allowed four hits through 7 1-3 shutout innings, leaving him 3-0 in his last four starts. Chapman gave up his sixth homer of the season while getting his 26th save in 30 chances. Bruce hit his 23rd homer off Dan Straily (6-6), who has lost all of his four starts since being called back up from the minors. The right fielder also went a long way to run down Josh Reddicks fly ball to the warning track in the fourth, saving a run. Melvin decided to hit for Straily in the fifth inning after catcher Stephen Vogt led off with a single. The As trailed 2-0 and Straily had thrown 75 pitches already. "Its not so much frustrating as you never want to stop pitching," Straily said. "I felt like it was all right. I got out of some jams. Obviously you never want to get up a home run. Every time you go out there, you want to throw zeroes. It could have been worse, could have been a lot better." The As made their first visit to Great American Ball Park -- opened in 2003 -- hoping to break out of their offensive slump in a hitter-friendly place. The As are only 8-9 since the All-Star break. Heading into the interleague series, the As were batting .218 in their last 20 games, getting blanked four times. They were coming off a 4-0 loss to Texas on Sunday. The As stranded runners in scoring position in the first, third, fifth and eighth innings, setting themselves up for another bad night. Coco Crisp tripled over first base with one out in the third but failed to score as the next two batters popped out. Their best chance came in the fifth, when they loaded the bases on Vogts single, second baseman Brandon Phillips error and a walk. Yoenis Cespedes grounded into a forceout. Cincinnati didnt get much offence, either, but this time it was enough. Bruce led off the second inning with a drive to left. Phillips singled home another run in the fourth, which was Strailys final inning. He failed to last five innings for the third start in a row and for the seventh time in 18 starts overall this season. Shin-Soo Choo led off the fifth with a double off left-hander Jerry Blevins and came around when the reliever fielded Derrick Robinsons bunt and threw wildly to first for an error. NOTES: Oakland is 13-6 in interleague play, Cincinnati 7-9. The As swept their two-game series in Oakland. ... Reddick was hitless in four at-bats, leaving him in an 0-for-16 slump. ... Eric Sogard extended his hitting streak to a career-high 12 games. ... The Reds plan to activate RH reliever Jonathan Broxton off the DL before Wednesdays game. C Ryan Hanigan (wrist) and LF Ryan Ludwick (shoulder) are expected back by the end of the week. ... RHP Bartolo Colon tries for his 15th victory on Wednesday, facing Cincinnatis Homer Bailey (6-10). Colon has gone at least six innings and allowed three runs or fewer in his last 15 starts, the longest streak by an Athletics pitcher since at least 1916. Custom Miami Dolphins Jerseys .Y. -- Jayna Hefford scored the winning goal Friday as Canada survived a scare with a 4-3 win over Sweden at the Four Nations womens hockey tournament. Brandon Doughty Jersey . Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010. The match was similar to Isners quarterfinal victory over fifth-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber which went to three sets, all tiebreaks and contained no breaks of serve. http://www.officialauthenticdolphinsshop.com/authentic-mike-hull-jersey.html . - NASCAR announced a 33-race schedule for the 2014 Nationwide Series with virtually no changes from this years slate. DENVER -- Hes watched draft picks flounder and free agents falter, seen some of his best players sidelined by injuries and witnessed Peyton Mannings successor struggle to stay safe behind a spongy offensive line.Yet, John Elways Denver Broncos are 7-3 at their bye.He can thank a great defense led by Super Bowl MVP Von Miller and some lucky breaks such as Carolinas missed last-second field goal in the season opener and Justin Simmons block of an extra point last week that led to the first defensive 2-point game-winner in NFL history.I think we would take it if you said at Week 10 wed be 7-3 with whats happened, Elway said. We havent played our best football yet, which I think is the encouraging thing.Another reason Elway is grinning and not grimacing is that his team is about to be astonishingly healthy when they host Kansas City (7-2) in a Sunday night showdown that begins a brutal six-week homestretch.DeMarcus Wares fractured forearm is history, and hes about to double his snap count after averaging just under 29 snaps in the three weeks hes been back in the lineup.Aqib Talibs bad lower back has quieted down and Derek Wolfes cracked right elbow is on the mend.The only sidelined star that wont be coming back anytime soon is running back C.J. Anderson , who had knee surgery but hopes to be available for the playoffs.Andersons absence looms large because the Broncos sport the youngest backfield in the NFL.Second-year quarterback Trevor Siemian threw his first NFL pass this season. Rookie tailback Devontae Booker has two TD runs, rookie fullback Andy Janovich has been hampered by a broken hand and third-year backup running back Kapri Bibbs scored his first career touchdown this month.Additionally, the tight end group has been largely invisible in the passing game with veteran Virgil Green averaging 1.8 catches per game without a single touchdown grab and second-year pro Jeff Heuerman managing just two catches.Similar to last season when he acquired Vernon Davis for the stretch run, Elway made a deadline-eve deal to toughen up his tight end group, this time getting A.J. Derby from the Patriots.Derby has two catches and tons of promise as the Broncos try to clear out defenders in the middle of the field. That would open up more chances for star wide receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders plus clear some running room for the Broncos sputtering ground game.Denvers dazzling defense is just as star-studded as last years version that brought homee the Lombardi Trophy. Jordan Phillips Jersey. But the Broncos run defense has proven leaky without free agent departures Malik Jackson and Danny Trevathan and Vance Walker, who blew out a knee in training camp.Elway exudes confidence even with Denvers offense sputtering as it did last season.We feel like we can get better on the offensive side. We have room for improvement there, Elway said. Weve figured out ways to win. Thats what you have to do. Were excited about the last six.Two of those are against Kansas City, one with Oakland and another versus rival New England in addition to trips to Tennessee and Jacksonville.I know that the schedule is a tough schedule from here on out, Elway said, but thats what happens when you win the division.Thats something Denver has done five years in a row.The AFC West is much more competitive this season, sporting three of the conferences four seven-win teams.Thats why Kubiak says its time for Siemian, 7-2 as Denvers starter, to step things up a notch.I want Trevor to play big, Kubiak said.To do that, hes going to have to stay upright.The reason he does make a lot of plays is because he will sit in there and get hit right in the mouth and make a play, Kubiak said. That is a great characteristic of a quarterback because you have to do that sometimes.But it can also send a quarterback to the sideline as it did Siemian for six quarters in October after he bruised his left shoulder.Its been a target for pass rushers ever since, and its not only his scuffling O-line thats to blame. Kubiak said hes dropping back too far in the shotgun at times.Were not going to protect you if youre doing that, Kubiak said.That was Kubiak defending his beleaguered O-line, something hes willing to do because hes as much assured in Siemians mental toughness handling criticism as he is in his physical toughness.Siemian received another cortisone injection in his bruised left shoulder this week and watched rookie Paxton Lynch run the one full practice before they all bolted on a five-day furlough.Siemian wasnt planning anything special.A lot of rest. Wont be doing much bench press this week, said Siemian, well aware hell be doing the heavy lifting soon enough.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
