Weve reflected on the inaugural Elimination Chamber Match and Sting biffing Triple H on his WWE debut, so now check out part two of our look at the top Survivor Series moments. Cheap Air Max 95 Green . This section has a lot of Bret Hart in it as we focus on the TWO times he was screwed at the event, while we also remember the rise of The Undertaker... Order WWE Survivor Series Book Sundays WWE pay-per-view online Read below for all that and some top Rock moments - and then watch Survivor Series 2016, live on Sky Sports Box Office on Sunday night. The Montreal Screwjob - 1997Survivor Series will be held in Canada for only the second time this weekend - and the Toronto event will have to go some to be as memorable as the last time the show headed to The Great White North. Two words: Montreal Screwjob. McMahon messing with Bret Hart remains one of the most talked-about incidents in WWE history and led to Hart distancing himself from the company for almost 10 years. A dejected Hart walks away from the ring McMahon called for referee Earl Hebner to ring the bell with then-WWE Champion Hart caught in his own move, the Sharpshooter, by challenger Michaels, despite the fact Hart had yet to tap out. The seething dethroned champion destroyed camera equipment, spat in McMahons face and headed for WWEs rival organisation WCW, where he won two world titles.Hart screwed by Hart - 1994 Hart lost the WWE Title to Bob Backlund in 1994 The Montreal Screwjob was not the first time Hart had been sucker-punched at Survivor Series - his own brother, Owen Hart, did it to him three years earlier. Bret was defending the WWE Title against the veteran Bob Backlund in a submission match, with The British Bulldog in Brets corner and Owen in Backlunds. Owen clotheslined Bret mid-match and then, with Backlund having locked in the crossface chickenwing, begged his parents to throw in Brets towel. Legendary wrestling trainer Stu refused but Helen did not, ending Brets agony but handing Backlund the belt.The Rocks in-ring debut - 1996 Rock - and his dodgy haircut - starred in 1996 Dwayne The Rock Johnson would probably wince if he saw the haircut he wore for his first WWE match - in fact, he did! The Peoples Champion was less than complimentary about his do while assessing his WWE bow on YouTube recently, comparing his cut to a Chia Pet. The Rock - or Rocky Maivia, as he was then known - made an impact on November 17, 1996, though, eliminating Crush and Goldust en route to becoming the sole survivor of a traditional elimination tag-team bout. A successful WWE career followed, albeit with a change of name - and hairstyle!Rise of The Undertaker - 1990 The Undertaker wrestles with Dusty Rhodes on his WWE debut The Phenom was also born at Survivor Series, debuting as the mystery partner of Ted DiBiase, Honky Tonk Man and Greg Valentine. Unlike The Rock, The Undertaker did not win the match for his team - he was countedout after chasing after opponent Dusty Rhodes - but did lay out Koko B.Ware with a Tombstone Piledriver, a move that quickly became his trademark, and Rhodes with a double axe-handle. Taker outdid himself a year later, though, defeating Hulk Hogan, albeit with the help of Ric Flair and a steel chair, to claim the first of his seven world titles in WWE.The Rock and Vince McMahon join forces - 1998 The Great One landed the WWE Title in 1998 The 1998 edition of Survivor Series is the only one not to feature a traditional elimination match, with the pay-per-view instead focusing on the Deadly Games tournament for the vacant WWE Title. The Rock triumphed to earn his first reign as world champion - but ventured to the dark side in order to prevail. The Great One seemed at a distinct disadvantage when he met the Vince McMahon-supported Mankind in the final, but a shock twist saw McMahon call for the referee to the ring the bell before Mankind tapped out to the Sharpshooter, reminiscent of the Screwjob a year earlier.

Westbrook has missed 27 games since having a procedure on Dec. 27 to deal with swelling in his injured right knee — the third operation on the knee in nine months. . "Were just throwing s--- at the wall hoping something sticks," said Tortorella about the possible line combinations for Fridays game against Columbus. The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference. As recently as last week, Imrul Kayes was still learning how an approach that involved having a premeditated mindset could radically change his batting. He has since implemented the game plan twice in four days, and on both occasions struck centuries.His 112 in the first ODI against England was his best innings in the format, though his dismissal took a bit of the sheen off the innings that began with a rousing six over square-leg that burst a hole inside an advertising board deep into the Shere Bangla National Stadiums grandstand. That century was a follow-up to his 121 for the BCB XI in Englands warm-up match on Tuesday.Following that innings, which he also started with a cracking boundary off Chris Woakes, Imrul said that it was Chandika Hathurusinghas advice that made him change tack.It has taken him more than eight years of playing at the international level to appreciate that there is nothing wrong in getting out of his shell to use his full potential. The hundred in Mirpur was testament of his ability to accept that he needed to change his approach to batting. It is also another feather in the cap of the coach Hathurusingha who has now made a difference to the career of yet another international cricketer.While Imruls Test career finally took off in 2014, he never quite hit the same note in the limited-overs game. He has opened in all but seven of his 60 matches, but was always playing second fiddle to Tamim Iqbal. Even when he did well, Imrul always seemed to struggle to pace his innings suitably.Since his debut in 2008, under Mohammad Ashraful and Jamie Siddons, Imrul had developed into an opening batsman who needed to play catch-up at the top level. He had issues dealing with deliveries outside the off stump, especially those angling away. He was comfortable against straight and incoming deliveries, but when bowling attacks figured him out, he looked lost for options.The cut and square-drive were his strengths too, and along with scoring runs in front of square on the leg-side, a big innings depended on finding gaps in these areas. For the first three seasons of his international career, Imrul batted without having too much focus on him; much of the opponents attention when playing Bangladesh circled around Ashraful, Tamim and Shakib Al Hasan.When he lost his form towards the end off 2011, he was swiftly dropped and replaced by seven other openers who were tried with Tamim. Jordan 13 Retro Wheat. Only Anamul Haque and Shamsur Rahman came close to filling his gap completely but via runs at No. 3 in the Test team, Imrul returned to the ODI squad after more than two years.Though in his return match against Pakistan in March 2014 saw him add 150 for the opening stand with Anamul, the next time he opened was in the 2015 World Cup in place of the injured Anamul. It was a disastrous time for him as he was a mid-tournament replacement with only some domestic innings under his belt. He feared that he was about to be dropped but in 2015, he emerged as an important Test batsman. The fear didnt go away completely as he was in danger of becoming typecast as a Test specialist, a tag that can be career-threatening for any hopes of returning to white-ball cricket.His first attempt at reinventing his game came midway through last years Bangladesh Premier League after he had run into woeful form. He finished off with two rapid fifties, the second of which was in the final where he helped Comilla Victorians to the title.But this latest change in his general outlook is something that has been happening in the background for quite some time. At some point during Bangladeshs long training camp this summer, Hathurusingha told Imrul to think outside his box.The aim was to give Imrul a greater presence at the crease through positive body language, so the coach told him to think of playing the cut and pull off every ball that offers width or is pitched short. At the same time he was encouraged to deal with good balls differently, go for singles or defend with intent, but bad balls, of which there can be plenty, should be hit for fours and sixes.It sounds like a simple message but Imruls career has perhaps changed for good. He has now found success with the new formula so instantaneously that he may not want to go any other way.He can now go after the bowlers in the first Powerplay and, given his experience, knows how to work the ball around when the slower bowlers come on. But with his mindset now reset to a more attacking mode, he will always be ready to put away the bad ball. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
FLORHAM PARK, N. Jonathan Quick Jersey .J. -- Two people with direct knowledge of the situation say New York Jets star wide receiver Brandon Marshall and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson got into a heated argument after the teams loss at Kansas City on Sept. 25.The two yelled at each other in the Jets locker room following the 24-3 defeat, but it never got physical, according to the people who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to first reported the incident on Thursday.Coach Todd Bowles told the site that he took care of it right there, adding that he addressed Marshall and Richardson, as well as the team. Bowles also said it was loud, but it wasnt anything significant.Marshall downplayed the argument to, saying the two simply had a disagreement and quickly cleared the air with each other.---AP NFL websites: and Darcy Kuemper Jersey .25 million option on reliever Jose Veras. Andy Andreoff Jersey . The Dane followed up his first European Tour title last weekend with eight birdies and just a single dropped shot on Thursday for a one-stroke advantage over South Africas Allan Versfeld and Portugals Ricardo Santos. . The veteran safety was a starter for the Bengals from 2008-2012. He totaled 41 tackles and three interceptions while starting all but four of the 13 games he played last season. THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Rams defense isnt often embarrassed, and it is rarely humbled.Its veterans have been one of the NFLs best units for the past few years, and theyve been among the best again this season. Even after the past 64:02, theyre still ranked ninth in the league in total defense.And thats remarkable, considering everything thats gone wrong over the past 64:02.The Rams (4-7) flew to New England on Friday after a week of rededication and recovery from their most humiliating defensive performance in years. Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints dropped 49 points and 555 yards last weekend in Los Angeles sixth loss in seven games.Its going to tell a lot about us this week, said cornerback Trumaine Johnson, the Rams highest-paid player. After that game last week, hopefully we go out there and compete. Man, I really dont like going back and talking about it. But everything wasnt working, as a whole defense.Combined with the Miami Dolphins two long touchdown drives in the final minutes to win a game otherwise dominated by Los Angeles defense two weeks ago, the Rams have given up nine touchdowns and 707 yards on their opponents last 15 drives.Johnson realizes thats an inauspicious way to go into another long road trip and a cold-weather game against Tom Brady. The Rams cant change much about their personnel or schemes in such a short time, but Los Angeles is hoping the embarrassment will spark a return to form.Sometimes you get a wake-up call, defensive coordinator Gregg Williams said. Weve been pretty dominant for four or five weeks, and all of a sudden, that wakes you up. I havent had any problem holding their attention in the meetings this week.The numbers are grim: New Orleans 555 yards were the third-most allowed in the 80-year-old franchises history. It was easily the Rams worst defensive game under Williams, the third-year coordinator, or head coach Jeff Fisher, who needs a huge finish to avoid his fifth straight losing season. The Saints 49 pointts were the most allowed by the Rams since 2002, and one fewer than Los Angeles had given up in its previous four games combined. Tanner Pearson Jersey. The reasons for the problems are varied. Middle linebacker Alec Ogletree acknowledges his defense wasnt lined up properly on several key plays, while Williams alluded to young players making positional mistakes that cost the Rams dearly.But if the Rams mental toughness was dented by the failures, they havent indicated it during the week of practices for the Patriots.We definitely were mad about it, and disappointed, defensive lineman Aaron Donald said. But we know what weve got to do. Weve got to eliminate the mistakes, and weve got to play better. Thats not the way we play. We know that.Johnson and the Rams secondary realize theyve got the most work to do. Including Miamis final two drives, the Rams have yielded nearly 20 percent of all the yards passing theyve allowed in the entire season over the past 4 1/2 quarters.Even without Rob Gronkowski as a target, the Rams understand the challenge they face in their first meeting with the Patriots since Fishers first season in charge in 2012. Brady passed for 304 yards and four touchdowns that year while New England shredded St. Louis 45-7 in London.Weve got Tom Brady this week, Johnson said. We couldnt feel sorry for ourselves. Its another great quarterback were facing. We expect it to be a challenge.Game notes The defense might not have DE Robert Quinn, who is in the NFLs concussion protocol. He missed practice all week, but is listed as questionable for Sunday. .... Tavon Austin, the Rams receiver and kick returner, is doubtful after missing the weeks practices with a chest injury. ... C Tim Barnes (foot), OT Andrew Donnal (hip) and OG Rodger Saffold (hand) practiced on a limited basis Friday.---For more NFL coverage: and Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

PITTSBURGH -- James Conner has big plans for this weekend, and it has nothing to do with saying goodbye.Thanksgiving marks the 1-year anniversary of the cancer diagnosis that threatened the Pittsburgh running backs career, one that kickstarted his remarkable comeback and turned Conner into an inspirational figure for others in the same fight.Conner -- fully healthy and showing extended flashes of the raw brilliance that made him the ACC Player of the Year in 2014 -- will celebrate the milestone with a massive family meal sometime after the Panthers wrap up the regular season against Syracuse on Saturday at Heinz Field.Its going to be a good holiday this year, Conner said Tuesday.Whether its his last as a college player, Conner isnt saying. Any decision on whether to return for a redshirt senior season next fall wont come until after Pitts bowl game. Conner stressed he wants to make the smartest choice. He also doesnt want to be a distraction to the 19 teammates who will run through tunnel at home for the final time, most of whom arrived at Pitt alongside Conner in 2013.Im just going to sit back and enjoy their special moment, Conner said.Conner anticipated being in this situation a year ago. Then he tore the MCL in his right knee in the 2015 season opener against Youngstown State. A hastily arranged press conference the first week of December -- which most expected to be Conner announcing he was heading to the NFL -- instead turned into the disclosure that he was battling Hodgkin Lymphoma.Months of chemotherapy followed. Conner put his challenge out there for all to see, joining his teammates for workouts and doing outreach to other cancer patients looking for someone to lean on. Yes, its not something he ever imagined hed be doing around his 21st birthday. It hardly seems to bother him.Its all positive energy, he said. If you see a young kid in a sad situation, you feel for him and me personally because I can relate to it.And overcome it, too. After a sluggish start this fall in which he seemed intent on trying to turn every touch into something spectacular instead of just doing what hes always done -- namely, keeping his legs and arms churning with a ferocity few in the country can match -- Conner has relaxed in recent weeks. Joe Hawley Jersey. Hes gone over 100 yards in three of Pitts last four games, and his two 1-yard scoring runs in last weeks 56-14 thrashing of Duke made him the all-time leading touchdown maker (53) in Atlantic Coast Conference history.Heady territory for a kid who attended a football camp at Pitt as a defensive end prospect before getting recruited as a running back. His 6-foot-2, 240-pound frame seems tailor-made for the NFL. Yet his winding journey has also altered his perspective. Hes no longer in such a hurry to get to the next thing.You cant look too far ahead, Conner said. I dont even look a week ahead because, especially me, you dont know whats going to pop up.Asked how he would benefit from another year in college, Conner smiled.Probably some more records, he said. I dont know if I came back, just add to the legacy. I hope they retire No. 24 one day. Thats a goal of mine.One thats probably already secure either way. While offensive coordinator Matt Canada hopes to have Conner around next fall, he understands if Conner moves on. One look at the way Conner is playing, including a stiff-arm during a 20-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter two weeks ago against Clemson that helped Pitt rally for a 43-42 upset, he certainly looks pro-ready.Why should people want to tackle James? Pitt offensive coordinator Matt Canada said. Theres not many people that want to tackle James Conner.Its why even with a running back draft class that could include LSUs Leonard Fournette, Georgias Nick Chubb and Florida States Dalvin Cook, Conner likes his chances if he opts to move on to the next phase of his life sooner rather than later.I like to think Im pretty talented, too, he said. I just focus on me and do what I can and hope I get the opportunity.---More AP college football at and Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
OMAHA, Neb. . -- Former Olympic champion Tyler Clary bid farewell at the U.S. swimming trials and announced he is retiring.The veteran swimmer failed to qualify for Rio in any of his events, ending with his bid to defend the gold medal he won four years ago in London in the 200-meter backstroke.Clary finished third in the final, with winner Ryan Murphy and runner-up Jacob Pebley making their first Olympic teams.Thats it, Clary said, dripping wet after his race. I dont see any reason to continue. Its really not a bad thing.[These] last four years has been pretty tough for a number of reasons, he said. Im really happy to have come into this meet and had what I would say is my best performance in the last quad. Sadly, that wasnt enough.Clary plans to visit a go-kart track with his family for the second time before leaving Omaha.Im looking forward to turning a page in the book of my life and starting a new chapter, he said. Im going to get to do a lot of things that Ive been wanting to do for years now. .ca! Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all players are responsible for their sticks. We witnessed that when Zack Kassian hit Edmontons Sam Gagner in the face after a missed check. . "Jeff is a hard worker who was an important special-teams contributor for us last season," said Stamps GM John Hufnagel. . The 29-year-old Baines has established himself as one of the top attacking full backs in the country and was the subject of two bids from United during the last off-season. Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that keeping Baines at the club is a "massive boost and exciting for the future" because he brings "maturity and football knowledge in a very specialized position on the pitch" and an "infectious and positive influence to the rest of the squad. LAS VEGAS -- The consensus opinion among NBA coaches and executives surveyed during the Las Vegas Summer League is that the Dallas Mavericks made a wise move to give Harrison Barnes a maximum contract, given the circumstances.At 24 years old, Barnes is a proven, quality, versatile starter who has yet to hit his prime. Hes expected to help the Mavs compete for a playoff berth during Dirk Nowitzkis twilight and be part of Dallas core after the face of the franchise rides off into the sunset. Sure, $94 million is a lot to give a good role player, but that was market value for Barnes, and the Mavs will still have the salary cap space necessary to be aggressive bidders again next summer.After letting Chandler Parsons leave, the Mavs are much better off with Barnes than without him. However, league sources gave mixed reviews regarding the Mavs optimistic vision for Barnes growth into a go-to guy after he averaged career highs of 11.7 points and 1.8 assists per game in a complementary role for the Golden State Warriors last season.Youre going to see a lot more to his game than youve seen in the past, Mavs owner Mark Cuban said. I think he can do a lot more than hes been asked to do, and thats what we expect to see. ... Maybe not first year, but I think hes going to grow into [the role of go-to guy]. Just because a guy hasnt done things doesnt mean he cant do it.Asked about Barnes offensive potential, one skeptical Western Conference executive said: At best a third option.The biggest issue with Barnes is that he hasnt demonstrated the ability to make plays off the dribble, in isolation or as a pick-and-roll ball handler, in four NBA seasons. He is a more explosive athlete than Parsons, but Barnes doubters say he isnt nearly as fluid and lacks the feel for the game of the players hes replacing in the Mavs lineup.Hes been a championship-level system player for Golden State for several years, and hes coming into a situation where were going to need him to be more of a primary guy, coach Rick Carlisle said. Its going to take time to develop the mentality, make sure were getting him in the right situations to do it, but he has the ability and hes a worker. Im confident that hell get there.Mavs pull off coup with BogutA few years after Dwight Howard spurned the Mavs to sign with the Rockets, a starting center picked Dallas over Houston. The Warriors allowed Andrew Bogut to choose between the Mavs and Rockets as his trade destination, according to league sources.The Rockets were willing to make the same trade as the Mavs to get Bogut, which was essentially to take a future second-round pick along with the veteran big man in a salary-dump deal that helped give Golden State the cap space required to sign Kevin Durant.A source said the Philadelphia 76ers also showed heavy interest in trading for Bogut but were never seriously considered by the Warriors, who wanted to send the center to a playoff-caliber team as a token of their appreciation for his contributions the past four seasons.Acquiring Bogut in a contract year is widely considered a coupp for the Mavs. He can provide the Mavs everything that Zaza Pachulia did last season but is much more mobile and athletic.Hes a top-five center as a defender without question, Carlisle said. Hes a premier rim protector, hes one of the best centers at taking charges, and he really understands the game. Offensively, were going to look to get him involved. Hell be a guy we look to throw to on the inside some, and we know hes a great passer and a great roller.Powell will have an increased presenceDwight Powells days as a fringe rotation player should be done. The Mavs didnt give the 24-year-old Powell a four-year, $37 million deal to have his primary role be shooting arrows on the bench to celebrate Wesley Matthews 3-pointers, as it often was late in the season, with Powell getting a DNP-CD in 10 of 27 games after the All-Star break.I expect him to be a rotation player, Carlisle said. The last two years weve been working toward this period where we could get him signed to a longer-term deal and integrate him to our everyday rotation. ... Hes a combination 4/5. I see him playing both positions. Time will tell how much at each, but I do believe there are going to be a lot of situations where hell play both positions in the same game.Powell might have taken a discount to stay in Dallas. A league source said the Brooklyn Nets were interested in Powell and pondering making a four-year, $48 million offer to the restricted free agent.Youth movementThe Mavs are committed to a youth movement as they fill out their roster. Their minimum-salary slots have primarily gone to veterans in the past, but theyve made a philosophical shift to give those roster spots to developmental prospects.One example is 25-year-old power forward Quincy Acy, who agreed to a two-year minimum deal with Dallas on Thursday.Cuban expects the Mavs to have as many as four rookies on the roster, all of whom will be signed to three-year deals for the minimum or close to it. Second-round center A.J. Hammons and 23-year-old Argentinian wing Nicolas Brussino have guaranteed deals. Summer league star Jonathan Gibson and undrafted forward Dorian Finney-Smith have agreed to three-year deals with some guaranteed money.Gibson has lit it up in Vegas, averaging 20 points per game while shooting 53.6 percent from the floor and 46.4 percent from 3-point range. He wouldnt exactly be a traditional NBA rookie as a 29-year-old who has played in Israel, Turkey, Italy, Iran and China. The Mavs see Gibson, who averaged 42 points per game in China last season, as potentially a poor mans Jason Terry.Finney-Smith has struggled offensively in the summer league, getting only two buckets in the first four games, but Dallas considers him a prospect because of his defense. At 6-foot-8, 220 pounds with a 7-foot wingspan and a 35?-inch vertical jump, Finney-Smith has the size and athleticism to defend multiple positions, similar to ex-Maverick Al-Farouq Aminu. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

HOUSTON -- When the third set of College Football Playoff rankings were unveiled Tuesday night, Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, receiver Jaylen Smith and a handful of other Cardinals tweeted their reactions to it. . It was clear they were surprised and certainly not pleased to be outside of the top four.Perhaps they were too concerned with where they stood, according to at least one player following No. 5 Louisvilles stunning 36-10 loss at Houston on Thursday night, which essentially knocked the Cardinals out of the playoff hunt.I think we let that get to us too much, Louisville sophomore safety Dee Smith said after the loss. We shouldnt have paid too much attention to the rankings. Instead of playing our game, we were trying to do too much, in my eyes.Not everyone necessarily agreed, but almost all the Cardinals who spoke with reporters acknowledged a lack of focus for Thursdays game. It showed: they committed 15 penalties, allowed 11 sacks and turned the ball over three times.The ranking is what it is, senior running back Brandon Radcliff said. Im sure there were a lot of people waiting on this moment [for us to lose]. Me being a captain, I tried to get our guys to focus on the task at hand and thats Houston. Our focus wasnt there today.The Cardinals fell behind the Cougars 31-0 at halftime and couldnt recover. They held Houston scoreless in the third quarter, scored a touchdown on their first second-half possession but fumbled in the red zone as they were trying to get a second score, then settled for a field goal on their third possession of the half.We blew it, Louisville coach Bobby Petrino said. We had an opportunity sitting there. Cant take anything away from Houston either. They did a good job, they executed well and they played well. It was one of those situations where they were better than us tonight, no question about it.Coming into the game, Jackson had a sizable lead on the rest of the country in the Heisman Trophy race. Asked if he thought Thursdays loss would affect his chances, Jackson dismissed such a notion.No, Im not really focused on that, Jackson said. I was focused on winning. Im not really focused on the Heisman. I just have to go out there, play with my team and help us win games. Thats it.Radcliff had stronger words in defense of his teammate, saying it didnt hurt Jacksons chances.Of course not, Radcliff said. Hes the best player in the nation. Nobody can question that man, the effort he goes out there and plays with every week. I dont care what you say, nobody touches him on that field.To me, hes the best player out there and Im not just saying that because hes my teammate. Stack him up against anybody. Nobodys touching what hes doing on that field. . LOUIS -- Cardinals cleanup hitter Allen Craig says hes recovered from a foot injury and ready to be put on St. .com) - The Chicago Blackhawks aim for their third three-game winning streak of the season when they host the struggling Edmonton Oilers in Sundays battle at the United Center. . Both players have lower body injuries that will keep them out of the lineup until at least January 31, which is the first game they can be activated from IR. Co-trainer Paul Snowden says Calanda is a long way from being the finished product despite the three-year-old scooping an Inglis Sprint windfall at Randwick.After conceding a start and then having his momentum interrupted because of a bumping duel with the runner-up Geneteau, Calanda ($5) recovered to win the $250,000 race by 1-1/2 lengths.Snowden said the win could represent a turning point in a career that has been restricted to five starts.Hes had his fair share of talent from day one but its been an immaturity thing with him. Hes been in and out of work, Snowden said.Hes still learning. After he missed the kick and got a bit further back on a track where horrses havent made up a heap of ground today it was good to see him hit the line the way he did. It was very encouraging.Calanda started second favourite behind third placegetter Manuel ($4.60) after Super Too was scratched after she was kicked on the way to the barrier.Snowden said the timing of Saturdays race fitted in perfectly with Calandas campaign but it would count against the horse for the early part of the autumn carnival.Theres another Inglis race at Scone a bit later and theres always Brisbane after that, he said. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
CARMEL, Ind. . -- Dustin Johnson knows as well as anyone that no matter how good he is and how well he plays, something can always go wrong in golf.Just not this week at the BMW Championship.Not this year, really.An awesome talent, Johnson is starting to pile up the victories to prove it. He ran off four birdies in a five-hole stretch to regain control Sunday, left Paul Casey feeling helpless by matching his eagle putt late in the round and sailed home to a 5-under 67 for a three-shot victory at Crooked Stick.Ran into a buzz saw, Casey said after a 67 to finish runner-up in a FedEx Cup playoff event for the second straight week. That was something special the last two days, and I did everything I could. So Im holding my head up very high.Johnson, though, it at another level right now.Known for so many years as the guy who couldnt catch a break in the biggest events, he won for the third time in eight starts dating to his first major at the U.S. Open. And this might have been his most complete performance. Powerful off the tee, relentless with the putter, dialed with his wedges, there was no stopping him.Ive got a lot of confidence in every part of my game, Johnson said.He just doesnt have much to say about it, mainly because he doesnt need to.Caseys last hope came on the par-5 15th when he rolled in a 25-foot eagle putt to get within one shot. That lasted as long as it took Johnson to line up his 18-foot eagle putt and pour it in to restore his three-shot margin.He finished at 23-under 265 and went over $9 million in earnings for the year, along with taking the No. 1 seed in the FedEx Cup to the finale in two weeks at East Lake for the Tour Championship.The consolation for Casey, along with $1,836,000 for his two runner-up finishes, was the No. 5 seed at the Tour Championship in two weeks. That means he only has to win at East Lake to capture the $10 million bonus.Rickie Fowler wont have any chance at all.Fowler, who started the week at No. 22 in the FedEx Cup , closed with a 71 and finished 59th at Crooked Stick. He was bumped out of the top 10 by the smallest margin in the 10-year history of the FedEx Cup -- 0.57 points behind Charl Schwartzel, who closed with a 64.The timing is particularly bad for Fowler because Davis Love III makes three of his captains picks for the Ryder Cup on Monday, with another one right after the Tour Championship. Fowler wont have another chance to audition, though he might get picked on Monday, anyway.Asked if he had done enough to be picked, Fowler said, I would like to think so.Ive done basically everything I can do as far as schedule and playing, said Fowler, who left the Olympics to play the following week on the PGA Tour. It would have been nice to play better to make the pick a lot easier on him. But whether he has his mind made up or is still thinking, thats up to him.Fowlers hopes came down to J.B. Holmes in a finish that had nothing to do with the trophy. Fowler would have made it to the Tour Championship if Holmes made either a birdie or a bogey. Holmes would have been eliminated with a bogey.He drilled it down the middle of the fairway, hit the green, lagged a 40-foot putt to 4 feet and made it for par for a 74.I envisioned it being a little bit better than that going into the day, but thats how it is, Holmes said. You dont always have your best game, and I was able to finish it off and get in the Tour Championship.Holmes tied for fourth, key for him because the big hitter from Kentucky also needs a captains pick to play in the Ryder Cup. Holmes finished at No. 10 in the Ryder Cup standings, one spot ahead of Fowler.I feel like I played well enough to get that shot, Holmes said. Well see.Roberto Castro holed out for eagle from the seventh fairway on his way to a 67 to finish alone in third, sending the Georgia Tech grad and Atlanta resident home to play in the Tour Championship for the second time.All this activity was far more compelling than the actual tournament, for Johnson never looked as though he was going to lose -- no matter how well Casey played. Casey is playing some of his best golf in seven years, and he now has a clear shot at the $10 million bonus at East Lake.Maybe.If I dont run into Dustin in two weeks, he said, I got a great chance to maybe win the FedEx Cup. . -- The boos poured down on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots at the end of a horrible first half. . 10 VCU 85-67 on Thursday night at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. The Seminoles (4-0) have scored at least 80 points in each of their games. . During the athletes parade, the 23-strong Ukrainian team was represented by a lone flagbearer in an apparent protest at the presence of Russian troops in Ukraines Crimean peninsula. Fremantle midfielder Michael Barlow has been ruled out for the rest of the AFL season with a shoulder injury, but Hayden Ballantyne is expected to return despite fracturing his cheekbone.Barlow, who had only just returned from a fractured finger, has been booked in for surgery after damaging the AC joint in his left shoulder during last Fridays loss to Geelong.The 28-year-olds career hung in the balance earlier this year when he was dropped to the WAFL following a lean start to the season.But he has been one of Fremantles best players since returning in round 10, and hes almost certain to earn a contract extension for next season.Ballantyne will also undergo surgery after fracturing his cheekbone while laying a first-half tackle against the Cats.The 29-year-old played out the match despite the heavy swelling, and the Dockers are confident hell be able to return at the tail-end of the season.Its the second seerious facial injury sustained by Ballantyne, who broke his jaw in 2014. We know how determined Hayden will be to get back to playing as soon as possible, and he has a history of doing that, Dockers football operations manager Chris Bond said.But at this stage we will see how his recovery phase goes and be guided by medical advice to help establish his return date.Fremantle will also be without veteran forward Matthew Pavlich for Saturdays clash with Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium.Pavlich will be rested from that match, before suiting up for his 350-game milestone in next weeks home clash with Sydney.Matt de Boer, Zac Clarke, Josh Deluca, Ethan Hughes, Clancee Pearce, Anthony Morabito, Darcy Tucker, and Shane Yarran are among the Fremantle players pushing for a recall. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Authentic JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
