With the four teams from North America going to the Rocket League Championship Series Live Finals LAN decided, its time to have the ultimate playoff to decide the seeding for the main event. Phil Hughes Jersey . Both North America and Europe will each have a single-elimination Regional Championship tournament among the top four teams of each region for a purse of $25,000. When the dust settles, these could be the matches that decides who gets closest to the $125,000 prize pool in Amsterdam.Heres how North Americas best stacks up on Nov. 12.Match 1: Orbit vs. Take 3While these are two very good teams, this matchup could be extremely one-sided. Orbit has looked very good recently and come in as the regular season number-one seed from North America. Take 3, on the other hand, qualified through the Regional Playoffs coming in as the bottom seed, beating a surging Vendetta 3-2 in the final qualification match.If Take 3 is to have a real chance of taking down Orbit it will need to come out swinging early, banking on the fact that Orbit hasnt played in RLCS in two weeks. The biggest issue for Take 3 will be the lack of offensive pressure leading to goals over the last three weeks. Take 3 seems to be missing that last bit of scoring lethality it needs to really become a world top contender.Overall these two teams should be separated by a fair margin, Orbit should win comfortably but as its the first match of the day and both teams come in fresh anything could happen. Take 3 will have a slim chance if it takes game one and can control the series; if not, this could be a very quick show.Prediction: Orbit 3-1 Take 3Match 2: NRG vs. GenesisThis should be a very close set. NRG, the number two team from regular season and one of the stalwart top teams of North American Rocket League, is coming up against Genesis, the longtime bronze medalists of North America. Expect a back and forth with two of the most consistent teams in the world. NRG should have a small edge here, as it has forever been one better than Genesis, yet if ever there were a time for an upset it would be now. Genesis qualified over Vendetta -- who came so close twice to qualifying -- and looked to be really coming together with its passing plays and team coordination.This match will probably go to five games and every single one of them should be close. If NRG can keep the form that had them finish second best in the regular season, expect it to walk out as the winners and at least a top two seed at the grand finals. This match could go either way but NRG will have the edge to see it through.Prediction: NRG 3-2 Genesis Joe Mauer Jersey . The showiest items on Calgarys lot were forwards Mike Cammalleri and Lee Stempniak. Both will be unrestricted free agents this summer. Paul Molitor Jersey .C. -- Glenn Howard needed an extra end to move into the Masters Grand Slam of Curling final. . Kozun faked to the forehand and beat Monsters starter, Calvin Pickard, pad side in the second round for the winner. Spencer Abbott also scored in the shootout for the Marlies (25-13-4). When you compete in something as long as I have -- remember, I swam in my first Olympics before I was old enough to drive -- you see just about everything. The aging superstar chasing one more Olympic gold, the teenage record holder who everyone believes is the next big thing. Some succeed. Most fail. Maybe theyre not good enough, dont want to put in the work, or dont care about winning enough to truly push their body to its limit.And then theres Katie Ledecky. It was two years before the 2012 London Games when I first started paying attention to her. Every time she got in the water, it didnt matter what time of year it was, how rested she was, where she was swimming, who she was swimming against -- she was cranking best times, national records. It was incredible. I remember thinking, this girl might be the real deal.But I wanted to see it on the big, big stage. Could she do it in the Olympics?In London, Katie was just 15 years old -- the same age I was at my first Olympics in Sydney. She was quiet, kind of kept to herself. But on the final day of competition, in the 800 freestyle, she won gold by more than four seconds. I won gold in the 100 fly earlier that night and had just received my medal when Katies event began. As I was walking through the interview area, reporters began asking me questions that I didnt even answer. Instead, I pointed to the monitor where Katie was crushing it.This past summer in Rio, she backed it up with four more golds. Right now, shes untouchable. There are swimmers who might push her, but no one is going to beat her. I remember what that feeling was like; its a great place to be. You know that if you put in the work, the reward is going to be there at the end. The challenge becomes longevity. How long can you keep it up?But no one is better prepared for this than Katie. Shes that much better than everybody else. When I watcch her swim, its like an art. Cheap Twins Jerseys Authentic. Its beautiful. She maximizes her distance per stroke. Its just something you dont see in swimming. Beyond that, shes one of the hardest-working people Ive ever seen in training camp. She will swim with the guys and make them look like theyre standing still. I did a set with her once in Colorado Springs, Colorado, at the Olympic Training Center. We were supposed to go together, but I was thrilled when she decided to lead a lane because I didnt want to get my ass whipped. Shes just special.And beyond that, mentally, she never lets up. She goes all out the entire race. Her mentality is, Im going to crush this field as much as I possibly can. In the first 100 meters, the race is over. Hell, in the first 50 its over. She makes the statement and then backs it up. Its just so remarkable.Yet away from the pool, with her teammates, shes as laid back as anyone. Shes talking, laughing, messing around. Then she gives a few high-fives, goes out and absolutely destroys the rest of the world. Its amazing to watch. You just dont see people like her in the sport. I know. And for me to have shared part of my career with someone so dominant and dedicated, and yet still so determined, is an honor. I mean it. Im a fan of this sport as much as anyone. And I cant wait to see what she does next.More on Katie Ledecky? What makes Olympic swimmer Katie Ledecky remarkable Story ?? On this night, appropriately, Ledecky eclipses Phelps?Story ??
