LAKE FOREST, Ill. Nike Air Max Free Shipping Worldwide . -- Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair a torn right labrum and will be placed on injured reserve, coach John Fox announced Thursday.We did try to exhaust all the non-surgical remedies. Jay is a tough guy and proved that to me in the past, Fox said. We did multiple different types of rehab. Its been a couple weeks now. Now the next alternative is to have surgery. Hell have surgery on Saturday.Cutler, 33, suffered the tear in Chicagos loss at New York on Nov. 20 but finished the game.Fox initially described the injury as day to day.Hes tough and waited the weeks doing a lot of rehab, Fox said. They are in there doing rehab at all hours of the day. There were some different treatments -- Im not going to get into all the specifics -- but he did things you do to try and avoid surgery. They didnt take form like they were expecting, and were at the surgical mode at this point.Cutlers future in Chicago is in question. Since the guaranteed portion of Cutlers contract runs out after 2016, the Bears would take a $2 million cap hit if they trade or release Cutler in the offseason, but the move would open up $13 million worth of space.Fox refused to discuss Cutlers long-term status.Right now we have five games left and all of our focus is on San Francisco, Fox said. The offseason is the offseason. We are not there yet.Cutler is 51-51 with the Bears since he arrived in 2009 from the Denver Broncos. During that span, Cutler ranks 26th in the NFL in Total QBR, 25th in completion percentage, 27th in yards per attempt and 35th in touchdown to interception ratio -- among 47 qualifying quarterbacks. Cutler led the Bears to one playoff berth in 2010.Cutler posted a career-high 92.3 quarterback rating under former coordinator Adam Gase last season, but he appeared in only five games in 2016.Aside from the torn labrum, Cutler missed five games because of a thumb injury. He finishes the year with four touchdowns and five interceptions (78.1 passer rating). Cutler also lost two fumbles.Still, Cutlers current playcaller, Dowell Loggains, said he learned a lot about the embattled quarterback.Just how tough he is, Loggains said. How much he cares. How much the team means to him. Thats been incredible to watch. There is a perception, and then there is a reality of that. Its been really fun the last two years being able to coach him. Ive enjoyed every minute of it. Air Max Wholesale Free Shipping . In what the team had called a retirement, Ryan said Thursday that he is resigning as chief executive of the Rangers in a move effective at the end of this month.

Third-seeded Murray had the easiest path to victory on New Years Eve, barely breaking a sweat during his 6-0, 6-0 win over 2,129th-ranked Qatari wildcard recipient Mousa Shanan Zayed. http://www.airmaxfreeshipping.com/ . The Cincinnati Reds remain perfect with their speedy rookie outfielder in the starting lineup. SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Chargers waived quarterback Zach Mettenberger as part of the teams efforts to get down to 75 players by the 4 p.m. ET deadline Tuesday.The move was one of several announced by the Chargers on Tuesday. San Diego received a roster exemption for first-round pick?Joey Bosa, who just signed on Monday, so the Chargers roster is at 76?players.Mettenberger had been outplayed by undrafted rookie Mike Bercovici during training camp, and he did not play in the past two preseason games for the Chargers.The Chargers claimed Mettenberger off waivers after the Tennessee Titans released him in May. A sixth-round selection in the 2014 draft, Mettenberger finished 0-10 as a starter in Tennessee.Mettenberger had a relationship with Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whiseenhunt from his time as the Titans head coach.

Whisenhunt had a hand in selecting the LSU product.Mettenberger, 25, was brought in to compete for the No. 2 quarterback job with Kellen Clemens, but that competition never really materialized.The Chargers were enamored with Mettenbergers physical tools -- hes 6-5 and 225 pounds -- but it did not translate to production on the field.In his only preseason action, Mettenberger completed 2 of 8 passes for 22 yards, with no touchdowns and one interception against Tennessee. He also was sacked twice.The Chargers now have three quarterbacks on the roster: starter Philip Rivers, Clemens and Bercovici.

Sir Ian Botham says James Vince must play for England in Thursdays first Investec Test against Sri Lanka. Cheap Addias Nmd . The Hampshire captain is in line to make his long-awaited Test debut at Headingley having staked his claim with some excellent performances in Englands Lions and one-day squads.Vince bats at No 3 for his county, a position currently held in the England side by Middlesexs Nick Compton, but could come straight in at No 5 following James Taylors early retirement. The 25-year-old caught the eye with a brilliant century against Yorkshire at Leeds two weeks ago and Botham believes he could get his chance in his preferred position of first wicket down.Vince must play, and could bat at three but it depends on how they (the selectors) want to go and if they stick with Compton, said Botham. Hes been knocking on the door for a while, hes been in great form and deserves his chance. James Vince could make his debut when England play Sri Lanka in the 1st Test at Headingley. Id bat him at three, Joe Root at four and Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes at five and six, but they may place trust in their bowlers and decide to go for an extra batsman, well just have to see.The England legend does not expect a repeat of Sri Lankas series win against England two years ago and is tipping Alastair Cooks side to complete a 3-0 series whitewash.Botham added: England should win the series comfortably. They played well in the winter and should be far too strong for this inexperienced Sri Lanka side. We take a look back at the England v Sri Lanka Test series for 2014, where there was heartbreak for James Anderson. The weather could have a say, I know rain is forecast for Headingley, but I still think they will win 3-0.Captain Cook heads into the match 36 runs shy of becoming the first Englishman to score 10,000 Test runs and Botham is confident the in-form opener will achieve the landmark early in the series.Hell get there and can go on and get another 3,000 Test runs, it just depends how long he wants to keep going, added Botham, who has picked Cook at 9/4 to be Englands leading run scorer in the series, one of his Beefys Bets. Beefys Bets Beefys backing Jonny Bairstow to top score in the 1st inns at Headingley at 8/1 with Sky Bet The former England skipper is also putting his money behind Englands record-breaking bowler Jimmy Anderson to be Englands top wicket-taker in both the first Test and the Series at 9/4 and 5/2 respectively with Sky Bet.Jimmy has been bowling really well for Lancashire. Hes played more matches than the other bowlers, hes fit and is the man to follow, he added.Watch England and Sri Lankas first Investec Test, at Headingley, from 10am, Thursday, Sky Sports 2.  Or watch from £6.99 without a contract, on NOW TV.

Were nearing the end of the Adventures of Penelope Jane, that searing saga of the friendly but fearless, sharp-shooting, screen-setting, rebounding, beloved basketball heroine of the desert.Well, thats our Americanized version of Penny Taylor, an integral part of three Phoenix Mercury championship teams who will retire from the WNBA at seasons end. Phoenix fans affectionately claim her as their own, while fully respecting that she is an Australian whose influence on her countrys national team is also a huge part of her sporting legacy.Taylor, 35, is averaging 12.8 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.6 assists for the Mercury, who are trying to secure the last playoff spot. She certainly could keep playing in the WNBA longer if she chose. But she believes its time to stop.Its my body telling me, Taylor said. I dont ever want to be a hindrance to a team. I want to make them better, and never be holding them back in any way.I feel like Im still contributing, and I love that I can still play, with this group especially. Because I love this team and the coaching staff. But I want to make the decision for myself, and the time just feels right.Its the exact answer youd expect from a player who has always put team first, even though nobody thinks shes holding back the Mercury. To the contrary, there will be a?void without her. But its about the most Penny Taylor thing ever that she would opt to exit just a little bit early than too late.Penny is one of the nicest people Ive ever met, said Indianas Tamika Catchings, who also is retiring at seasons end. But the competitive nature that we each have, Ill always remember that about her. And from the international standpoint, her being a role model for players who come from Australia.Ah, yes: nice. A very bland adjective, right? Yet its impossible to talk about Taylor without that word. However, she isnt some generic brand of nice.Anyone who has spent even a little time around Taylor can remember a particular nice thing she did for them. For players -- both teammates and foes -- its some kind words when they were soaring or struggling. For coaches, its how she was always very low-maintenance.For fans, its all the times she has posed for photos, smiled, listened to their stories, and made them feel like they were part of the Mercurys success. And, yes, even the media have experienced countless nice Penny moments. Such as when the Mercury had clinched their first WNBA Finals berth in 2007, and the celebratory music playing in their locker room was so loud reporters couldnt hear the quotes. Taylor jumped up, saying, Let me go turn down the music real quick.Yet, as Catchings said, Taylor also will be remembered as a fiercely determined competitor.Its the grit on both sides of the court, Chicago coach Pokey Chatman said. A lot of times when you talk about grit, youre talking about defensive players who dont have a skill set offensively. But thats not Penny.Shes a threat inside and outside, and you have to guard her out to the 3-point line. And she plays so well with others. I have to coach against her overseas, too, and its the same thing. Im a huge fan of her, and its because she has the toughness and the skills.A natural fitPenelope Jane Taylor was born in May 1981 in Melbourne, Australia. Her parents both were natives of England before they moved Down Under; her mom as a young teen, and her father when he was an adult. They met in Australia, and Taylor said there was a definite English influence in her upbringing and that of her siblings.Even now when people meet me, they say my accent is a little different from other Australians, Taylor said, adding with a laugh, I very rarely say, mate, for example, which for most Australians is every second word.Taylors parents introduced her to basketball at age 4. She took to it, but acknowledges she probably would have done the same with any sport because she was so competitive. But basketball fit the eventual 6-foot-1 Taylor perfectly.She went to the Australian Institute of Sport and played in the countrys womens pro league, the WNBL, plus made the national team, the Opals.Taylor was drafted into the WNBA by Cleveland about a month before her 20th birthday in 2001. It seems crazy in retrospect to think a player as good as Taylor went as late as the No. 11 pick, but that was a talent-rich draft, including another Aussie teen: No. 1 selection Lauren Jackson.Taylor was to become one of the leagues elite; a case could be made that she deserved a spot on the leagues top-20 players list voted on earlier this 20th anniversary season.She spent three years with Cleveland, then was the top selection by the Mercury in the dispersal draft when the Rockers franchise folded after the 2003 season.Like with all the Australians in the WNBA, Taylors desire to play against the best in the world helped motivate her to travel around the world to pursue her career.A lot of us are pretty ambitious, Taylor said, so you dont really have a choice. Its what I wanted to do, and I couldnt expect myy family to drop their lives and go with me. Cheap Adidas Nmd Shoes Free Shipping. It was my dream.I wouldnt call it a sacrifice because I wanted to do it. I never felt anyone begrudged me that. Not my parents, or my sister and brother. I was very lucky that they were unselfish like that. Im sure it wasnt always easy for my mom and dad, but they never said anything. They were always supportive.Both of Taylors parents have passed away after battling cancer; her mother in May 2013 and her father in December 2014. Taylor sat out the 2015 season in part to take time, emotionally, to recover from those losses.But the past few years also have presented Taylor with some physical challenges. She tore her ACL in March 2012 while playing in Turkey, which cost her both the WNBA season that year and the chance to play at the London Olympics.She had setbacks after her initial surgery and wasnt able to return to the WNBA until late June 2013, appearing in just 12 games that season. There were difficult periods during 2012-2013 that Taylor really wondered if shed ever get back to playing at a high level. Although she said the silver lining of being away from the game meant she got precious time with her mother in her last months.Then in 2014, everything came together just right again, as Taylor helped Phoenix win its third WNBA title.That championship was particularly meaningful to Taylor because she was playing for an Australian coach with the Mercury, Sandy Brondello, and alongside another Aussie, guard Erin Phillips.Michele Timms and Brondello had led the first wave of Australian players when the WNBA began, and Taylor has always been grateful to them as the pioneers. They would be the first to say, with great pride, that Taylor has carried that torch well.Australian attitudeTaylor was never the designated star for the teams on which she won her most prestigious titles: the three in the WNBA, and a gold medal in the 2006 world championship. For Phoenix, that star was Diana Taurasi; for Australia, it was Jackson. Yet you cant picture any of those championships without Taylor. She has always filled in whatever role was needed.I just think thats the way youre supposed to play, Taylor said. I dont really care about anything other than winning.In 2007, when Phoenix won its first championship, Taylor averaged star-like numbers at 17.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists in the regular season. She bumped that to 19.3, 7.9 and 3.8 in the playoffs, with Phoenix beating Detroit in five games to take the title.The 2009 WNBA Finals also went five games, with Phoenix prevailing over Indiana. That already had been a challenging season for Taylor, who played just 14 regular-season games due to injury. Then Taylor took an elbow to the mouth in Game 2 of the Finals, suffering a laceration inside her mouth and the displacement of two front teeth. That didnt stop her from playing the rest of the series. For the 2009 postseason, she averaged 14.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists.Ive always wanted to be tough, and tried to be, Taylor said. Maybe its that Australian attitude that we like to have.Taylor just grins whenever you talk about her calmness or how shes a contrast to the emotional Taurasi on the court. As Taylor once put it, People will say to me, It looks like youre really in control. But I feel Im as fired up and just as ferocious as Diana. I guess on the exterior, it doesnt look like that.No, but it always has looked like Taylor would be one of the first people you would pick as a teammate, no matter the sport. What will she do when shes done playing? It seems likely well see her in coaching; she loves basketball too much to leave it and is eager to keep studying the game.The recent Olympics were difficult for Taylor and the Aussies, who were upset in the quarterfinals. And it has been an up-and-down season for the Mercury, although they might still end up being a threat in the playoffs.Whenever Phoenixs season ends, Taylor will take some time to relax and pursue a few other things.I want to cook better, she said. Ive been a vegan for a year, and thats something that really interests me, learning more about nutrition. I look forward to some beach time, some surfing.Is she a good surfer?No, Im horrible, Taylor said, laughing. But I love being around the water, and I think I can improve.So the Adventures of Penelope Jane really arent ending after all. But Taylor will be missed a great deal by everyone who has followed the WNBA.Something she said back in 2007, when the Mercury were on the path to their first title, explains why Taylor has thrived in her career and her life, regardless of all the miles traveled and time spent far away from Australia.Ive always loved different cultures and parts of the world, Taylor said. Ive never woken up in some country and thought, My God, what am I doing? Why am I here? I feel wherever I am, Im surrounded by friends.

CHARLESTON, S. Nike NBA Jerseys From China .C. -- Josh Hart scored 11 of his 15 points in the second half as No. 3 Villanova stared down UCF and 7-foot-6 center Tacko Fall to win the Charleston Classic with a 67-57 victory Sunday night.The Wildcats opened 5-0 for a fourth straight season, using their experience to pass around the middle and their tenacity to chase down loose balls that Fall couldnt corral.The result was the fourth in-season tournament title for Villanova in as many seasons, the defending national champions running their November record the past four years to 24-0.Fall did his part for the Knights (3-1) with 20 points on 10-of-10 shooting and 13 rebounds -- he was 26 of 31 with 34 rebounds in three games at TD Arena. The rest of his teammates shot less than 33 percent as Villanova took a 12-point lead at halftime and kept a comfortable margin the rest of the way.UCF closed to 37-32 on Matt Williams basket with 16 minutes left. Then the Wildcats took off on a 12-3 run to extend the lead. Hart had a jumper and his only 3-pointer in the surge. The Knights never got within single digits after that.Villanova freshman Donte DiVincenzo had 13 points. Jalen Brunson and Kris Jenkins added 12 apiece.Williams had 17 points for UCF.BIG PICTUREVillanova: The Wildcats showed their resiliency and skill in battering three opponents in Charleston, all by double digits. If youre nitpicking for a deficiency, it might be a lack of height. At 6-foot-9, Darryl Reynolds played the center spot most of the weekend and fronted Fall in this one, fouling out after 26 minutes of action.UCF: The Knights picture is always big with Fall, the tallest player in the game. The school says he is among the 40 tallest people in the world, too. But UCFs offense at times doesnt run through Fall, maybe because hes still developing his passing skills down low. If that happens, look for the Knights and Fall to take off as he becomes a more versatile player.UP NEXTVillanova heads home to play the College of Charleston. After the teams spent the past four days crisscrossing each other at TD Arena, they head to Philadelphia to play Wednesday night.UCF begins a two-game homestand against Seattle on Saturday night.---More AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org Stitched Nike NBA Jerseys . -- 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. Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys . PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.cheapnbajerseyssigned.com/ . Ibaka equaled a career high with 20 rebounds, adding four blocked shots and 15 points as the Thunder smothered the Milwaukee Bucks offence in a 92-79 victory Saturday night. EUGENE, Ore. -- USA Track and Field decided to make hammer throw the main event on Wednesday at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials, giving the sport a spotlight it rarely receives.Entrance fees were waived, the pit was brought to center field and the stands were engaged with interested -- and curious -- track fans. Before nearly every thrower, fans started a slow clap and, when personal bests were hit, the crowd erupted.And with that kind of attention, the women did not disappoint. All three top finishers broke the U.S. Olympic trials meet record, with two-time Olympian Amber Campbell picking up the win with a toss of 74.03 meters on her final attempt.We dont get to feel that kind of magic being out in the back field, Campbell said of Hayward Fields environment. So to be able to compete in the center, at Hayward, in the middle of the day with an amazing crowd -- theres nothing like it.Gwen Berry and Deanna Price rounded out the Olympic roster in the hammer throw with throws of 73.09 meters. Price, who won the NCAA title the last time she was at Hayward, said the atmosphere within the stadium was unlike any meet in which she had ever competed.Amazing, it was insane, Price said. People were doing the clap and I was like, Woah, wow, this has never happened before. And its likely that on the other side, fans were thinking the same thing. But when the women were crushing records and improving their world standing, there were plenty of reasons to cheer.A legend retires ... probablyAfter the competitors had cleared off the track Wednesday, only one thing was left: A.G. Krugers shoes in the middle of the hammer circle.A giant -- in both the physical and metaphorical sense -- leaving behind a piece of his athletic career at the place that probably saw the final event of his career.The 13-time USATF national champion and three-time Olympian had failed to make the top three. On top of that, no American had thrown the Olympic A standard, threatening an Olympic hammer throw showing without an American.It has been an amazing ride to do something like this, to represent the country, Kruger said through tears. I thought Id chance this dream one more time, but I fell a little short. It sucks right now. A lot of emotions right now. At some point it has to come to an end. This is where its at.With 10 open spots at the Olympics in the hammer throw, the IAAF could still pick up to 10 competitors to attend the games. Krugers fourth-place showing at trials isnt a huge booost to his résumé, but he still holds the second-best throw by an American in 2016. Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic. .Previewing Thursdays finalsThree finals are on Thursdays schedule, all on the womens side -- shot put, triple jump and the 3,000-meter steeplechase.Two collegians are set to return to Hayward to defend their NCAA titles -- Georgias Keturah Orji in the triple jump and Mississippis Raven Saunders in the shot put.Orji is favored in her event, having set the best mark of American jumpers in 2016 -- 47 feet, 8 inches, which she set at the NCAA Track & Field Championships in June. She had the best jump in the prelims, but probably will see tighter competition from Andrea Geubelle, Christina Epps and Imani Oliver.I was really excited about competing for USA at World Indoors, Orji said. It was my first meet against pros and everything. I was really happy with the way I did, and Im looking forward to improving even more.Saunders is defending both the 2015 and 2016 NCAA titles in the shot put, but two-time Olympian Michelle Carter continues to set the bar in the event. Her throw of 20.21 meters (66 feet, 3? inches) is the farthest by an American woman in 2016.The day will conclude with the 3,000 steeplechase, featuring Emma Coburn and Shalaya Kipp, veterans who were both a part of the 2012 Olympic team. But newbies such as Leah OConnor and Colleen Quigley, both 2015 college graduates who are racing in their first trials, are working to make their first Olympic roster.OConnor recently wrote about the journey from collegian to Olympic hopeful on her personal blog. She explained that even though she has the second-fastest time by an American woman in 2016, the question Are you going to Rio? is actually a very loaded one.Making an Olympic team is NOT based on a point system in the United States. We have one day in early July to make it happen, OConnor wrote. Nobody is guaranteed a spot. It takes so much hard work, focus, balance ... and a lot of luck. So to answer the question again: yes, home-dogs ... I am training for the Olympic Trials. I am doing everything in my power and working with my incredible coach to give myself the best shot on that one day in July.Its what everyone has been working toward. So far, 60 Americans have punched their tickets to Rio. But for OConnor and several others competing in finals Thursday, July 7 is finally here. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball JerseysWholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys StoreWholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '

On September 29, 2007, in Mexico City, India conquered the world. Cheap Jordan 11 2019 .Seventeen days earlier, eight elite chess players had gathered there to play a gruelling double round-robin tournament. Each player would play all the others twice, once each with white and black. Fourteen rounds against elite opposition. Such super-grandmaster tournaments were common, but this one was special, not just because of the strength of the field assembled but because the winner would be crowned the undisputed world champion of Chess. Therefore, unlike in other tournaments, only first place mattered. There would be blood on this dance floor.At the end of 14 rounds, one man remained unbeaten. Viswanathan Anand of India had ten draws and four wins to his credit, and with nine points out of 14, won the tournament by a full point. Anand, at 37 years of age, was among the older world champions in what was increasingly becoming a young mans game. He was no journeyman, though, but one of the greatest talents in the history of chess, who, as a young prodigy in the late 80s and early 90s, had threatened to be the first man after Bobby Fischer to challenge the Soviet School of Chess. It is impossible to overstate what a monumental achievement this was.***Vladimir Lenin enjoyed playing chess, but institutional support for chess in the Soviet Union had less to do with love of the game and more to do with ideology and geopolitics. Nikolai Krylenko, a senior functionary and the head of the Soviet chess association (until he was purged by Stalin in 1938), once said: We must finish once and for all with the neutrality of chess. We must condemn once and for all the formula chess for the sake of chess, like the formula art for arts sake. We must organize shockbrigades of chess-players, and begin immediate realization of a Five-Year Plan for chess.Chess was taught in schools, and chess players received special dispensation from the regime. In 1927 they even had a world champion in Alexander Alekhine. But Alekhine turned against the Bolsheviks and left for France, whom he represented in the 1930s. It was after World War II that the Soviet School of Chess really took off.One of the imperatives of the Cold War was that the Soviets had to find ways to demonstrate that their vision of the world was superior to that of the capitalist, decadent West. Chess was an obvious domain. Alekhine had died in 1946, but around half of the best players in the world were Soviet. A five-man quintuple round-robin tournament was held in 1948 to decide the World Championship; three of the participants were Soviet. Their chosen man, Mikhail Botvinnik, won easily. Botvinnik became a central figure in the decades-long Soviet domination of chess that followed. Indeed, his work ethic and his values formed the template for the Soviet School.The School placed an emphasis on preparation, both mental and physical. In 1926, the scrawny 15-year-old Botvinnik found himself running out of energy during games, and on his mothers advice, began a daily exercise routine to raise his fitness levels. (Intense concentration at a chess board can take up a surprising amount of energy, and stamina matters.) Physical fitness became a credo for the Soviet School. Far more impressive, though, was the work they put into theoretical preparation.The key skill in chess is not calculation but pattern recognition. A famous study by Adriaan de Groot in 1946 found that grandmasters dont actually calculate more moves ahead than novice players. They just calculate the right ones. This is because what they see on the chessboard is not just a collection of pieces but a collection of existing patterns and possible patterns, all with their own characteristics and weaknesses. The more they study and play the game, the more patterns they understand, with greater depth and subtlety.The Soviet School began training schoolkids in the basic principles of chess, exposing them systematically to an increasing number of patterns, and teaching them basic heuristics to help them deal with common situations. This gave Soviet players an enormous edge over others who did not have this training. Insights that others had to labour to achieve were intuitive for them.?Others such as a kid growing up in India in the 1980s, before the advent of computers, with no access to the kind of information and training that the Soviets had.Devangshu Datta, a writer who played serious chess in the 1980s, and knows Anand well, once told me: When I started playing East Europeans [in the 80s], the difference in chess culture was stark. We knew so much less, it wasnt funny. To take an analogy, it was like putting a bunch of talented kids with a basic knowledge of, say, self-taught HSC level maths into direct competition with people who had post-grad math degrees.Wed struggle through the opening and hit the middle game and start wondering what to do, then in the post-mortem, the opponent would say, Oh, my trainer AN Other taught us that with this structure you have to play this way, and youd be like, Shit.For Anand to come out of this environment and establish himself as an elite player was mind-boggling. He did not have the mental toolkit that Soviet players did, and had to figure it out on the fly. Think of it as playing Wimbledon today with the kind of wooden racket they used 30 years ago; or, as I like to say, taking a Maruti 800 into a Formula One championship and actually competing for the title. What manner of special talent does it take to do that?***Appearances can be deceptive in chess. If you look at Anand, you see a polite, sedately dressed conventional Tamilian gentleman - but his chess style was something apart from this. Think of him as the Viv Richards of chess - flamboyant, attacking, pulling off moves that would leave his opponents in awe. Anand was known in his early days for his creative, attacking play, and he also played quickly, often taking minutes on the clock where others would take more than an hour. He didnt only have attacking strokes in his arsenal, though. He was what is known as a universal player: comfortable in all kinds of positions, with no weaknesses in his game.The chess world that Anand set foot into as a teenager in the late 1980s was a bipolar one - and both the poles were Soviet. Anatoly Karpov, the blue-eyed boy of the Soviet establishment, had become world champion in 1975 by default after Bobby Fischer refused to defend his title against him. (Some say Fischer was scared he would lose to this phenomenal young talent.) Karpov was a positional genius, and his style was likened to that of a boa constrictor, squeezing with precise, quiet moves till there was no life left in his opponent. Garry Kasparov, who beat him for the World Championship in 1985, and in a series of epic matches after that, was an unreal talent. He combined the strong points of every world champion before him, and unlike Anand, his personality matched his playing style: relentlessly attacking, uncompromising, fearless. (He would later battle Vladimir Putin with the same ferocity with which he took down Karpov.) Kasparov was the rebel to Karpovs establishment man persona - but both were solid products of the Soviet school, and both had been personally trained by Botvinnik.Anand won the World Junior Championship in 1987, but his big breakthrough to the elite level came in 1991, when he won a strong super-grandmaster round-robin tournament in Reggio Emilia. He finished ahead of Kasparov (whom he beat with black), Karpov, and upcoming superstars Boris Gelfand and Vassily Ivanchuk. For the first time since Fischer, the domination of the Soviet School of Chess was threatened by an outsider.***Anands quest to be world champion was complicated by a split in the chess world in 1993. Garry Kasparov fought with FIDE, the world chess body, over terms for his World Championship match against Nigel Short, and Kasparov and Short quit to set up a rival association, PCA, with its own World Championship matches. FIDE continued holding World Championships without Kasparov. Anand qualified through a rigorous process to play Kasparov for the PCA world title in 1995. They met in New York, and after eight draws, Anand won the ninth game with a sparkling exchange sacrifice. But Kasparov rebounded ferociously to win four of the next five games to put the match away.Anands next shot was at the FIDE World Championship in 1997-98. Its format was absurd: 97 players would play in a month-long knockout tournament in Groningen in the Netherlands, ending on December 30. And the winner would immediately travel to Lausanne in Switzerland to play a match against a fresh Karpov, who was seeded directly into the final, on January 2. Anand won the knockout tournament, beating Michael Adams in the final match, but was naturally drained by the effort. He later said that he was brought in a coffin to play Karpov, and chess enthusiast Sreenivas Lakkineni was quoted as saying that Anands condition was similar to a runner being asked to immediately start a 100-metre race from the marathon finishing line. To his credit, Anand drew the match 3-3, but lost the Rapid playoff.A couple of years later, in 2000, Anand finally won the FIDE World Championship, triumphing over another 100-man field in a knockout tournament. (Large-field knockout tournaments are very high-variance, so winning two of them within three years was remarkable in itself.) He wasnt the undisputed world champion, though, and craved a shot at that title. The PCA had no qualification system in place, and Kasparov basically picked who he wanted to play. That same year, he overlooked the World No. 2, Anand, and picked fellow Russian Vladimir Kramnik for a World Championship match. To everyones surprise, Kramnik beat Kasparov.The early 2000s were a frustrating time for Anand. He had won one half of the world title, but the other half was held by Kramnik, and Kasparov was still World No. 1. (Anand was No. 2.) Anand won the World Rapid and Blitz titles (players get around 30 minutes each in Rapid and around five minutes each in Blitz) and also won a series of super-GM tournaments. But the chess world was disorganised, and there were no signs of a unified world championship. Kasparov retired in 2005, opting to take on Putin on a larger chessboard. FIDE then got its act together and organised a reunification match between Kramnik and the FIDE world champion at the time, Veselin Topalov. Kramnik won, and was thereby the undisputed champion. And the next year, for the first time since a 37-year-old Mikhail Botvinnik won in 1948, a tournament (instead of a series of knockout matches) was held to decide the new undisputed world champion.***For about four years starting in 2007, Anand played chess as well as anyone has in the games history. He was World No. 1 now, and after winning the title with a solid performance in 2007, he defended it in matches against Kramnik (2008), Topalov (2010) and Gelfand (2012). His play in the matches against Kramnik and Topalov, in particular, was as close to perfection as you can get, according to Datta.He ticked all the boxes during this period, says Datta, and he showed his versatility as well, adapting to his opponents styles. Anand embraced tactical complexity against Kramnik but played with positional finesse against Topalov, practically toying with both men. After all these years of being almost there, he was now regarded as one of the greatest players to have ever played the game. Where does one place Anand in the pantheon of Indian sport? Chess is played in many more countries and by many more people than any other sport that Indians have excelled in, and Anand has been at the pinnacle of the game for two and a half decades. By this reckoning, he is incomparable. And his 2007 world title has special meaning.Had the world championships never been unified, indeed had they not been held at all, Anand would still have been a dominant player and perhaps played games of the same quality. But sporting greatness is not just about how well you play the game in a vacuum, but how well you play it under pressure. Context matters. With his lifetimes dream within his grasp, to display the solidity he showed in 2007, and then the versatility (and mastery of his opponents) he did in the subsequent matches against Kramnik and Topalov, was extraordinary - and so very unlikely.

Clippards deal Monday means all eight Nationals players who filed for arbitration wound up settling before a hearing. http://www.cheapairjordan11.com/ . Jane Virtanen scored two, and Alex Roach and Elliott Peterson rounded out the offence for the Hitmen (40-15-6). Brady Brassart chipped in with three assists. Colton McCarthy scored twice, Brayden Point had a goal and two assists, and Jack Rodewald also scored for the Warriors (15-35-9), who were 2 for 5 on the power play. There was plenty of blame to go around for season-opening losses by the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills, but with three days between games and an AFC East rival ahead Thursday night in Week 2, each team turned the page quickly.Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman stood up and faced the music Monday afternoon, a day after his offense turned in one of the teams worst performances in recent memory.Buffalos total offense output of 160 yards was its worst in 10 years, and its lowest in a season opener since 1979. Roman accepted blame for a game plan that never got into sync.I will definitely take the blame myself, Roman said. I think I can do a better job putting us in positions to be successful.What was so odd about what took place in Buffalos 13-7 loss to the Baltimore Ravens is that Roman never allowed the Bills to get into any rhythm.Buffalo did take the last meeting in the series -- and the past five -- to bump the Jets out of the playoffs in the final week of the 2015 season.We know each other pretty well, Jets coach Todd Bowles said. Theyre still tough. Rex is smart. He understands the game very well.The most glaring issue Week 1 for the Bills was the lack of deep throws dialed up for Tyrod Taylor, something in which the quarterback excelled last season in his first year as the starter. His longest pass was a 33-yarder on a broken play to tight end Charles Clay, and the only other pass that topped 10 yards was a 19-yarder to Sammy Watkins.We werent able to get into a rhythm and take those shots when we wanted to, Roman said. We got a little bit disjointed. We have to stay on the field. When we do that, were pretty darn good.There were five instances in which the Bills faced second-and-8 or longer where Roman called for a run, and none of those plays produced a first down. Only once did Buffalo recover and get points, and that was on its lone touchdown drive in the second quarter.The Jets sacked Andy Dalton seven times but the Cincinnati Bengals rattled away a 23-22 win in Week 1.The job that stares Rooman in the face is trying to get the offense on track against one of the best defensive lines in the NFL in Thursday nights home opener against the Jets (8:25 p. Air Jordan 11 Retro Low Cheap. m. ET). Baltimore was stout in the front seven and did a great job overpowering the Bills offensive line, and things will likely get tougher in this game against the likes of Sheldon Richardson, Muhammad Wilkerson and Leonard Williams. Wilkerson, dealing with ankle and toe issues, has been limited in practice and is listed as questionable.They have so many good players up front, center Eric Wood said. All of us have to show up each play because any one of them can really embarrass you. Another tough test, and weve got to play better this week.And the Bills will have to do so without left tackle Cordy Glenn, who will miss the game with an ankle injury, while leading receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) is listed as questionable. Glenn played half the game last week before exiting. Cyrus Kouandjio took over and, like the rest of the line, struggled.To a man, the linemen are thrilled to be playing on Thursday night because it allowed them to quickly wash away that lousy performance in Baltimore. Wood said they were already working on the game plan on the flight back from Baltimore because of the time crunch, and he said it had a cleansing effect.I think it was a blessing in disguise to get that stinker out of the way and move on and have a great opponent like the Jets coming up, Bills guard Richie Incognito said. It was great to turn the page fast and get on to the Jets.We are a very prideful group and we know what were capable of and we didnt play up to our potential. When you have a poor showing like that early in the season it leaves a poor taste in your mouth. So were coming out extra motivated. Were fired up.Thursdays contest is the 111th regular-season meeting between the teams. Buffalo leads the series 59-51. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '

TORONTO - While Toronto FC has spent the year scouring the globe for talent, its surprise player of the season is a local product acquired before the new management regime took over. Adidas NHL Jerseys Outlet . Rookie midfielder Jonathan Osorio, identified as a player to watch early in training camp by first-year manager Ryan Nelsen, has shown an opportune scoring touch in grabbing the spotlight. Osorio, who turned 21 in June, has started eight games and seen action in 10 more with Nelsen playing him both in centre midfield and on the flank. "Hes one of the absolutely top young talents in this league," said Toronto president and GM Kevin Payne. "I put him at the same level as (Gyasi) Zardes and the other forward (Jose Villarreal) from Los Angeles that everybodys making a big deal about. "I think Johnnys actually probably got a better all-round game than either one of them." Nelsen believes Osorio is a legitimate rookie of the year candidate. "For a guy who you could kind of say is coming out of nowhere in a way, its been an absolutely fantastic year," said the former New Zealand international. "But what I love about Jon is that he only wants to get better and wants to improve every day." Thanks in part to Osorio, Toronto snapped a six-game winless streak last weekend with a 2-1 victory over the Columbus Crew. Osorio scored in the 87th minute to pull Toronto into a 1-1 tie that set the stage for Andrew Wiedemans 94th-minute winner in a torrential downpour at BMO Field. While he had been shifted to the wing recently, the arrival of Spanish winger Alvaro Rey is likely to return Osorio to the middle. Osorios four goals are second only to Robert Earnshaws six on a team where goals have been hard to come by. Toronto has just 19 in 21 games. Top strikers Danny Koevermans (calf) and Earnshaw (hamstring) have both been sidelined of late. Osorio says hes always had "a nose for the (penalty) area." "Im one to always attack the box and I think I do it pretty well. So as long as I keep doing that — thats where more than 50 per cent of the goals happen in football." Osorios goals have all come late. And would have meant more had it not been for defensive lapses. Osorio scored in the 78th minute against Los Angeles (the Galaxy replied in stoppage time for a 2-2 tie), in the 66th minute against Philadelphia (the Union scored in stoppage time for a 1-1 tie) and the 83rd minute against New York (the Red Bulls scored in the 89th minute for a 2-1 win). "Its a great story for our other academy kids," said Payne. "When they see kids actually transition from the academy to the first team and get games and have the opportunities to make impacts, that really helps their confidence. They now believe that Wow if I work hard, there really is a pathway. "That kid is very talented. Johnny Osorio. Hes a tough kid ... He looks like a cool, detached sort of player on the field but he actually has a great deal of emotion within him. He plays with a lot of passion." Osorio didnt spent much time with the Toronto academy. He signed in September after impressing with SC Toronto in the Canadian Soccer League. In February, he was at Toronto FCs camp in Florida and was included in Nelsens his first starting 11, against the Columbus Crew. "You knew it right there, he had confidence in me to play and to be ready to play at a professional level," Osorio said. The young Canadian says he is growing in confidence every week. "I feel really good out there," he said. "Im always hungry to score goals or assists or help the team in any way." Said Nelsen: "Nothing fazes him. Not even bad moments in games. He always tries to do things positively. Instead of going into his shell, he tries to keep doing stuff. And I love that because the game and life in general rewards those people." Osorio took the long road to his home-town club, spending two years at Club Nacional in Montevideo, Uruguay, thanks to his talent and the connections of coach Jorge Amura at the Clarkson Sheridan Soccer Club in suburban Mississauga. He spent two years there, starting in the under-19 ranks before making his way into the reserves before deciding to return home at the end of 2011. Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys China . - Levi Browns tenure at left tackle for the Pittsburgh Steelers is over before it even began. Adidas NHL Jerseys From China .

BOSTON -- The Boston Celtics took their defense from solid in the first half to stifling in the second.Isaiah Thomas scored 16 of his 26 points after halftime and Al Horford had 18 points and five blocked shots as Boston beat the Charlotte Hornets 96-88 on Friday night to stop a three-game slide.Coach just told us we needed to step up our level of energy a little more on the defensive end, Horford said. We did that and that was the big difference.Getting Thomas back after he missed four straight games with a groin strain didnt hurt, either.Thomas scored nine in the third quarter as the Celtics fought back from a 12-point deficit. He added seven in the fourth to help Boston put away the Hornets.We got stops and got running, Thomas said. The one thing we did in the fourth quarter is we just spaced the floor and made plays for each other. Guys hit big shots.Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder added 12 points apiece for the Celtics, who held the Hornets to 13 field goals in the second half.Charlotte played without leading scorer Kemba Walker, who did not travel with the team due to personal reasons, and lost its fourth straight.Although the Hornets outrebounded Boston 54-46, the Celtics outscored them 38-30 in the paint as Charlotte had trouble converting inside.We have to finish some of these plays, coach Steve Clifford said. You get these point-blank ones and you dont have the floor balance in there back the other way. There were two or three of those that were huge plays.Nicolas Batum led the Hornets with 22 points and 10 rebounds.Ramon Sessions had 13 points and six assists, Marco Belinelli scored 11 and Jeremy Lamb added 10 points for the Hornets.Crowder hit a 3 with 6:11 left to put Boston up 80-79 after Charlotte scored seven straight points. Thomas drew a flagrant foul by Belinelli and hit both free throws. Boston retained possession because of the flagrant, and Crowder drew another foul and added two more free throws to put Boston ahead 84-79.Cody Zeller missed from inside for Charlotte, and Thomas came back with a 3-pointer to make it 87-79 with 4:52 left. Charlotte turned it over right awayy after the inbounds play and Bradley added another 3 that gave Boston a 90-79 cushion with 4:24 to go. Authentic Adidas NHL Jerseys. After a basket by Belinelli with 6:32 left completed their 7-0 run, the Hornets went scoreless until his layup with 2:20 remaining cut it to 92-81.Boston held Charlotte to five field goals in the third quarter, when the Hornets were 5 of 23.Charlotte closed the second on a 14-4 run and took a 50-41 lead into halftime. The Hornets led 60-48 early in the third when the Celtics started their surge. Kelly Olynyk hit a 3-pointer to tie it at 62 with 3:57 left, and it was tied 69-all at the end of the third.MISSING KEMBASessions started for Walker and had six assists, but the Hornets offense appeared lost without Walker.Hes one of the best in the league, so we missed him a lot tonight, Batum said. We played better tonight overall. But we should have won that game, anyway. No excuses.COLD OUTSIDEAfter shooting 2 of 14 from beyond the arc in the first half, the Celtics started hitting from outside in the third period. They went 7 of 14 on 3-pointers in the second half and held Charlotte to 19 points in each of the final two quarters.WELCOME BACKThomas hadnt played since scoring 20 points against Houston on Dec. 5. The Celtics went 1/3 in the games he missed and were happy to have him leading the offense once again.It helps all of us just because it opens the floor even more. Teams have to play us a little more honest, said Horford, who also had eight rebounds, five assists and two steals. Its just good to have him back.TIP-INSHornets: Walker is averaging 22.6 points per game. He missed his first game this season, but was expected to return when the Hornets visit Atlanta on Saturday night. Walkers absence made Belinelli and Sessions the only Charlotte players to appear in all 27 games this season.Celtics: Jonas Jerebko scored nine points to lead Bostons reserves.UP NEXTHornets: At the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night.Celtics: At the Miami Heat on Sunday night. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys' ' '

Defence coach Paul Gustard admits England still have plenty to work on despite the promising start under coach Eddie Jones. Wholesale College Jerseys . England began their Six Nations campaign with a hard-fought 15-9 win over Scotland at Murrayfield on Saturday, although there was little sign of the high-tempo rugby that Jones is keen to implement in his new side.Jones has said England will get fitter under his tutelage and Gustard, brought in by Jones as part of an overhaul of the entire coaching staff, said circumstances dictated much of Englands approach to the game. Gustard says Italy have progressed hugely since joining the Six Nations We want to increase the tempo, but unfortunately due to the weather conditions, due to perhaps the time we spent together, due to how good Scotland were defensively in the first half, we werent able to get that stranglehold on the game in terms of our tempo, Gustard told Sky Sports News HQ. Its again something we will try to earmark this weekend and in the games after that.The first-half wasnt perfect from a defence coach point of view. We got cut three times, two in and around the line-out at the back of the maul, so its something weve been trying to work on this week. England head coach Eddie Jones says hes likely to make changes to the team that beat Scotland which included James Haskell The second-half improved significantly and I think we looked quite comfortable in terms of containing Scotland, who have a very good attack and they are a well-coached team.Next up for England is a trip to Rome to face Italy in their second straight away game and Gustard says he is focusing his efforts on containing No 8 Sergio Parisse, who remains the heartbeat of the Italian team.Italy have progressed a lot. Theyve beaten everyone else but England in the Six Nations, he added. Italys Sergio Parisse (right) is dejected after missing a last-gasp drop goal attempt against France Parisse has been their talisman - he can do the unexpected, hes not a traditional forward, he wants to step up as a first receiver, he wants to try a drop goal, he wants to put a chip in, so hes a target for us to try and neutralise. There are a lot of other good players around him. His legs arent quite what they used to be in terms of the amount of involvement he has, but theyve got two wings that have got a lot pace and the 10 looked a tidy player at the weekend as well.Theyre going to be a good team, theyre certainly well coached and will be diligent in defence.

He fell 15 votes short of the required 75 percent in 2016.Ramirez was suspended for 50 games in 2009 while with the Los Angeles Dodgers for using a banned female fertility drug. He retired in 2011 instead of facing a 100-game suspension after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

After a change on voting eligibility rules eliminated some retired writers, Clemens rose to 45.2 percent and Bonds to 44.3 percent in last years voting.Players remain on the ballot for up to 10 years, provided they receive at least 5 percent of the vote.Rodriguez was never disciplined for PEDs, but former Texas teammate Jose Canseco alleged in a 2005 book that he injected the catcher with steroids. Asked whether he was on the list of players who allegedly tested positive for steroids during baseballs 2003 survey, Rodriguez said in 2009: Only God knows.A 12-time All-Star, Ramirez helped the Boston Red Sox win World Series titles in 2004 and 07, the first for the franchise since 1918. College Jerseys Cheap.

CHARLOTTE, N. Air Max Wholesale China .C. -- Former NASCAR driver Mike Wallace still suffers from black floaters in his right eye and still has problems with depth perception from injuries suffered in an alleged assault June 17 following a Rascal Flatts concert.Wallace testified about his injuries Tuesday during the first day of trial for three men charged with misdemeanors for assaulting him, his daughter and his son-in-law. The men -- Paul Lucas, 29, Nathan Lucas, 24, and Randolph Mangum, 23 -- pleaded not guilty during the arraignment prior to the start of the trial.The 57-year-old Wallace also suffered a broken tooth that he still needs to have replaced as well as lacerations in his mouth. His daughter, Lindsey Wallace Van Wingerden, suffered a broken wrist and black eye.On the stand for more than two hours, Wallace testified he doesnt remember the fight itself. He said he saw a man staggering by the bathroom and then later saw him arrive to a group across from his car. Wallace testified he told the group, Howd you like the show? and then when he saw the man, added, Looks like your boy made it back. When told the mans mother was there, he said, Hi, mom, how are you doing?According to Wallaces testimony, one of the other men cursed at him and said, Get the hell out of here, to which Wallace responded, What the hell is going on? What is wrong with you? Wallace said the next thing he remembered was being hurt on the ground.During cross examination, the focus was on Wallaces actions that night. He said he had four drinks -- two at dinner and two during the concert. He said he wasnt inebriated. He had taken anti-anxiety medication earlier in the day, medication that his prescription indicated he was not supposed to mix with alcohol.Wallace was shown a video where he had trouble identifying people by faces but could make assumptions by physique and the color of clothing, which he said appeared to show him in the group getting punched. He testified he did not start the fight.Another issue brought up by the defense was a 2007 assault charge naming Wallace. Wallace said he was not familiar with the charge, nor with a man named Timothy Wayne Coe. Court records show a 2007 assault charge that was later dismissed in North Carolina with Timothy Coe Wayne as the complainant against Wallace.In other testimony, the arresting police officer indicated that he was told the men charged in the fight acted in self-defense. The police investigation report includes three additional victims, including people with the last name Lucas and Mangum.Nicole Melton, a distant relative of Wallaces who was at the concert but didnt know the Wallaces were there, testified about witnessing the commotion and seeing Wallace on the ground unconscious with a bloody face. She did testify that Wallace was highly aggravated after eventually getting up and going to the ambulance, stating that we need to get that [expletive], meaning the man whom he thought was involved in the fight.The trial will continue Wednesday morning. Cheap Nike Air Max Clearance .

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- With Jack Eichel back on the ice, the Buffalo Sabres are no longer struggling to score.Eichel had two goals in the third period, and the Sabres beat the New York Rangers 4-3 on Thursday night for their second straight victory.Buffalos star center has three goals and an assist in two games since returning from a high-ankle sprain. In 21 games without Eichel, the Sabres scored an NHL-low 39 goals and had four or more goals in a game just twice. Buffalo has tallied nine goals in its last two wins.Sabres coach Dan Bylsma was expecting his team to get a lift from Eichels return, but he did not anticipate the 20-year-old forward would produce this much in his first two games back.It just shows what kind of player he can be, what kind of player he is, Bylsma said. Hes a dynamic player and he brings so much to our team in speed and attack. Everyone feeds of it. It has carried over to other players.Johan Larsson and Brian Gionta also scored for Buffalo. Anders Nilsson made 22 saves while subbing for starting goaltender Robin Lehner, who is day to day with a hip injury.Ryan McDonagh, Rick Nash and Marc Staal scored for the Rangers, and Henrik Lundqvist made 30 saves.The Metropolitan Division-leading Rangers lost for the first time in 14 games this season when leading after two periods. After winning 13 of its first 17 games, New York is 3-4-1 over the past two weeks.Eichel has a point in seven straight games dating to last season, and the Sabres are 10-3-1 when he has more than one point.Playing in his first home game of the season, Eichel electrified the crowd at KeyBank Center with two goals in 103 seconds late in the third.It was great to be back here, Eichel said. I was definitely looking forward to it. To be able to win and get a little come-from-behind victory in the third period and be able to contribute makes it feel a whole lot sweeter.Eichel tied the game on a power play with 7:15 remaining. After drawing a holding penalty on Adam Clendening, Eichel received a pass from Kyle Okposo in the right circle and beat Lundqvist with a wrist shot to the short side of the net.He just froze me, Lundqvist said. I was expecting a pass. I was already thinking about whats going to happen next and instead he goes for the shot. You know, thats what good players do. They read from what Im doing there and obvviously I need to challenge him more. Air Max Clearance Online. On his next shift, Eichel took a cross-crease pass from Sam Reinhart and tried to feed the puck to a streaking Evander Kane, but it bounced off the left skate of New Yorks Mats Zuccarello and into the net.When you look at the goals there, some fluky ones, Lundqvist said. All of them, really, just some weird plays.

China NHL Jerseys . It was also Irelands first-ever win over South Africa.South Africa stumbled from 77 for 4 to 95 all out, losing six wickets for 18 runs, all between overs 16 and 20. Trisha Chetty, the only batsman to score more than 20, top-scored with 28, in an innings in which the highest partnership was worth only 19 runs.Four South African batsmen, including Chetty, were run out as Ireland completed a win with three balls left in the match. Kim Garth picked up 2 for 12 in her four overs while every other Ireland bowler, except Amy Kenealy, picked up a wicket apiece.Irelands total of 115 for 7, after they were put in to bat, may have seemed below par at the halfway stage given how well their openers, Clare Shillington and Gaby Lewis, began the innings.The pair added 78 in 13 overs before Shillington fell for a 41-ball 48 that included six fours and a six. In the next over, medium-pacer Marcia Letsoalo struck twice in the space of five balls to dismiss Lewis and Jennifer Gray and Ireland slipped further when Isobel Joyce was run out for 1 in the 15th over.Garth and Shauna Kavanagh added 24 for the fifth wicket and took Ireland past the 100-run mark, but their dismissals in the last two overs limited the sides chances of a few extra runs at the end.The two sides will square off in the first of four ODIs in Dublin on Friday.Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys .

 . A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain.Who have been the star performers in the Womens World T20 so far? The semi-finals have arrived, with England playing Australia on Wednesday before New Zealand face West Indies on Thursday, but who has been responsible for getting them there, and who else has shone?Heres a look at my team for the tournament, with a few familiar faces present, as well as the odd new name... Charlotte Edwards (England) Charlotte Edwards has answered her critics with a terrific tournament at the top of the order for England Refreshed after a disappointing home Ashes series, with her future as England captain questioned, Edwards has proven the doubters wrong by providing a commanding presence at the top of Englands batting in India. Two man-of-the-match performances, clocking up a joint-most 171 runs, ensured her team finished first and unbeaten in Group B. Australia are huge favourites Charlotte Edwards says England are underdogs in World T20 semi Tammy Beaumont (England)Written off and cast adrift from the national side until Mark Robinson joined as head coach in late November last year, Beaumont looks reborn under the former Sussex coachs tutelage. Delivering the attacking batting that Robinson wants from his charges, Beaumonts fluency and rapid scoring has re-energised Englands top order, especially in the power play. All three of Englands sixes have been struck by Beaumont.Stafanie Taylor (West Indies) Stafanie Taylor, the heart of the West Indies team The heart of the West Indies team, Taylor perfectly combines power-hitting tenacity with measured strokeplay and has propelled her side to the knockout round. The 24-year-old has also taken advantage of the spin friendly conditions, picking up five wickets with her canny offspin bowling.Suzie Bates (New Zealand)On pitches not designed to aid aggressive openers, White Ferns captain Bates has countered that thinking and wacked her way to 171 runs, the most alongside Edwards. After failing to make the semi-finals at the previous event, New Zealand have made quite the impression this time out, with Bates a key figure in their success.Elyse Villani​ (Australia) Elyse Villani has returned to form at just the right time for Australia Coming into the competition on the back of an array of mediocre scores, Villani struck just four runs in Australias opening two matches, as the reigning champions made an underwhelming start. But a timely return to form - pummeling 53 not out and 43 in the Southern Stars last two group gaames - has demonstrated her hard-hitting ability. Wholesale NHL Jerseys Authentic. achel Priest (New Zealand)Leading from the front, Priests dependable run-scoring exploits allow those around her to capitalise on solid starts. She knows all too well how to thrash the ball to the ropes, 60 of her 102 runs have come by way of boundaries in the group stage, and she is one of the safest wicketkeepers in the tournament.Sophie Devine (New Zealand)Beginning her career as a strike bowler, Devine has slowly molded herself into a feisty all-rounder with a penchant for bashing the ball a long way, scoring the winning runs against South Africa with a huge six. Crucially for New Zealand, as well as scoring useful runs, Devine remains effective with the ball, claiming five wickets.Harmanpreet Kaur (India) Harmanpreet Kaur took 2-22 against England as India threatened to pull off an upset With England on course to win a routine match over India, Kaur stepped up and removed two of their best batsmen - Beaumont and Sarah Taylor - with consecutive deliveries. Chaos ensued and while India were unable to eek out a win, her intervention almost kept their semi-final hopes alive. A calm presence in Indias middle order, Kaur finished with both the most runs and wickets for her team.Anam Amin (Pakistan)Sterling efforts in her first two tournament clashes secured Amin back-to-back man of the match awards, including a 16 dot-ball extravaganza that saw Pakistan defeat rivals India. Still only 23-years-old, her unflinching accuracy and technical know-how suggests much is still to come from this tenacious left-arm spinner.Anya Shrubsole (England) England seamer Anya Shrubsole has again impressed during the World T20 Despite playing on unsympathetic wickets for pace bowlers, Shrubsole, the 2014 World T20 top wicket-taker, is still causing batsmen nightmares. Consistent with her menacing lines, shes dismissed seven opponents. The Somerset seamers composure with the bat in a mind-bending chase against India also guaranteed England victory.Leigh Kasperek (New Zealand)The Scotland-born Kiwi spinner travelled to India off the back of a successful showing in New Zealands surprising T20I series win over Australia. But she has surpassed all expectations, her unerring control and slight rip of the ball embarrassing many. Topping the most wickets chart with nine in four matches, her devilish bowling came to the fore against Australia, again, where a spell of three wickets in nine balls rocked the Southern Stars.Watch live coverage of England Womens semi-final against Australia on Sky Sports 2 from 9.30am on Wednesday, then catch the second semi-final between New Zealand and West Indies, also on Sky Sports 2 from 9.30am, on Thursday.
