Christo Bilukidi and Carson Rockhill will both have a terrific opportunity next month to enhance their stock with pro football coaches. Cheap Nike Indianapolis Colts Jerseys . The Canadian-born linemen will both take part in The Players All-Star Classic, a college football all-star game that will be played in Little Rock, Ark., on Feb. 4. Forty of the players scheduled to suit up are expected to strut their stuff at the NFL combine, which annually attracts the top draft-eligible collegians to audition for scouts, coaches and GMs with all 32 clubs. In addition, officials representing NFL and CFL teams are also expected attend the All-Star classic. The six-foot-five, 295-pound Bilukidi was a two-year starter at Georgia State who played primarily at defensive tackle but also saw action at defensive end. The native of Angola, who grew up in Ottawa and was named a team captain for the 2011 campaign, led the Panthers with five sacks and also had nine tackles for a loss, 38 defensive tackles, a fumble recovery and forced fumble. In 2010 he was voted the Panthers top defensive lineman by his teammates and his 10 career sacks stand as a school record. Last month, Bilukidi, whose father is an Angolan diplomat, was ranked No. 12 among the top-15 prospects for the 2012 Canadian college draft by the CFLs scouting bureau. The six-foot-six, 292-pound Rockhill earned his all-star nomination following a strong 2011 season with the University of Calgary after backing up Canada West outstanding lineman Paul Swiston at left tackle in 2010. The Dinos finished atop the Canada West standings with an 8-0 record this season and defeated UBC 62-13 to capture the Hardy Cup before dropping a 41-10 decision to Laval in the Mitchell Bowl. A solid performance at The Players All-Star Classic certainly wouldnt hurt Rockhills CFL draft stock. He wasnt named among the top-15 draft-eligible prospects by the leagues scouting bureau last month.

A two-time CFL all-star, Roberts was the leagues top special-teams player in 01 and appeared in two Grey Cup games with the Bombers (01, 07) before finishing his career with the B.C. Lions in 08. Lumsden, 60, of London, Ont., enjoyed a stellar college career at Ottawa and in 75 helped the Gee-Gees go 11-0 and capture the Vanier Cup. Lumsden ended his collegiate tenure as the Vanier Cup MVP.

Lumsden was also in the Ticats front office when they won their last league title in 99. Racine, 76, a native of Cornwall, Ont., was an offensive lineman and kicker with Ottawa from 1958-74, appearing in five Grey Cup games and winning four times. He played 201 career games with the Rough Riders and was an East all-star three times. The franchise retired his No. 62 jersey upon his retirement.

Seven times he was the OUA coach of the year and twice (90, 98) received the Frank Tindall Award as the CISs top coach.

"We look forward to watching him continue to develop and excel at the next level."

Hes the fourth player to leave Duke after one season and the second one-and-done guard in two years after Cleveland made Kyrie Irving the No. 1 overall pick of last years draft. The others are Corey Maggette in 1999 and Luol Deng in 2004. Doc Rivers, speaking to reporters in Charlotte before the Celtics game against the Bobcats on Monday night -- before his sons decision was made public -- said he thought his choice would be a good one no matter what he decided to do. "Listen, going to the NBA if youre going to get drafted in the first round, thats good," Doc Rivers said. "Going back to Duke, thats good. So I dont know if you have a bad choice." cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Cheap Bayern Munchen Jerseys . - The Minnesota Vikings defence cant stop anybody. Theres a different quarterback under centre every week. The star defensive end is the subject of trade rumours. And the coaching staff is stepping out onto thinner and thinner ice with each successive blowout loss. Other than that, things couldnt be going better for them. The Vikings (1-6) have already lost as many games as they did all of last season while making a surprising run to the playoffs. After getting hammered by the Green Bay Packers in a 44-31 loss on Sunday night that was nowhere near as close as the final score indicated, coach Leslie Frazier finds himself trying to come to grips with a season that looks all but lost. "There was no scenario going through my mind that would put us at 1-6 in this juncture," Frazier said. "Looking at the way our games have transpired, I do understand why we are where we are. I do believe we can get some things fixed and get going here. Theres definitely some things we have to work on to get done, but I do believe its possible to get it done." If Frazier has exhibited one defining characteristic during his three-plus seasons on the job, its an unshakable sense of calm even in the most difficult moments. In the wake of an embarrassing loss to their NFC North rivals at the Metrodome on Sunday night, his resolve is being tested yet again. Aaron Rodgers dissected the defence, converting over 72 per cent of the Packers third downs and directing scoring drives on every possession but the last one, when he took a knee to mercifully run out the clock. For the season, opponents are converting 51 per cent of their third downs against the Vikings, by far the highest number in the league. "Were so bad right now on third down on defence," Frazier said. "Youve got to look at how were doing it, what were doing schematically, and also the people that youre asking to do certain things. Can they get it done? Do we need to be doing something different based on the people that were asking to execute the defence?" The NFLs trade deadline is Tuesday afternoon, and several Vikings have heard their names come up in the rumour mill. Defensive end Jared Allen and seldom-used backup running back Toby Gerhart are two of the players mentioned most often. "Honestly, Im not even going to address it," Allen said after the game. "Im not going to speculate on something that I havent had a conversation about. And Im not going to speculate on something that hasnt happened. I cross all bridges when I get to them and right now Im trying to figure out a way for us to make this defence better." Frazier said he knows players read reports on the internet, but coaches would buckle down on them this week to make sure theyre focused going forward. "Were going to try to continue to keep them focused on the task at hand, and in this case, its trying to prepare as well as we can for this ballgame against Dallas," he said. "Thats whats most important." Frazier declined to identify a starting quarterback for the Cowboys game. The Vikings have changed starting quarterbacks, either because of injury, ineffectiveness or both, five times in their last six games, and all indications are another change will be made this week. Christian Ponder started against the Packers because the recently acquired Josh Freeman had a concussion. But Ponder failed to seize the opportunity after being benched a month ago, looking skittish in the pocket and unable to work through his progression of receivers with any efficiency. Veteran Matt Cassel is the only quarterback to win a game for the Vikings this year, but Frazier said Monday that Freeman or Ponder will start against the Cowboys. "Hes done everything weve asked him to," Frazier said of Cassel. "Hes practiced well, prepared well. He was ready yesterday if needed be, and hell continue to work as hard he can. I dont know if theres any one thing I can point to and say why its Christian and Josh in this determination." As long as Freeman is fully healthy, he is the likely choice to face the Cowboys. He had a terrible debut against the Giants two weeks ago, but the Vikings want to get a long look at him to see if he could be their quarterback of the future. And while Frazier has heard fans calling for his ouster, the team still seems to stand firmly behind him. "Coach cant get out there and throw a pass or run, or block," Adrian Peterson said. "Its on us as players to make this turnaround." ___ AP NFL website: ___ Follow Jon Krawczynski on Twitter: wholesale jerseys . Now he can be had by any team willing to pay his salary. According to a report from ESPN, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are shopping the veteran CB and plan on releasing him Wednesday if they cant find a trade partner. Cheap Detroit Red Wings Jerseys . -- Connor Brown had two goals and an assist as the Erie Otters edged the visiting Belleville Bulls 4-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action.PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Jimmy Walker and Jordan Spieth are tied for the lead at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, which should surprise no one. Walker went eight years and 187 starts on the PGA Tour before his first victory, and now he cant seem to lose. He already has won twice in this new wraparound season, the Open and Sony Open, and he has played 36 holes this week without making a bogey. That included a 69 at Spyglass Hill on Friday. And it helps that Walker has finished in the top 10 at Pebble Beach each of the last three years. "Its definitely not old," he said of this position he keeps finding himself in. "Ive been here before after 36 holes and after 54 and after 72. You do get more comfortable and you start to realize what it takes." Spieth had an amazing rookie season, going from no status at the start of the year to No. 7 in the FedEx Cup and a spot on the Presidents Cup team. And the 20-year-old Texan has shown no sign of stopping. Throw out that missed cut at the Sony Open, a matter of the hole failing to get in the way of his putts, and consider his start. He led after the first and third rounds at Kapalua, where he played in the final group and finished second. He led after 36 holes at the Farmers Insurance Open and played in the final group at Torrey Pines. Spieth had a 67 at Monterey Peninsula, following a 67 at Spyglass Hill, and now heads to Pebble Beach. In his young career -- 27 tournaments in the book since turning pro -- he already has a win at the John Deere Classic and four runner-up finishes. Spieth doesnt see the four second-place finishes as failures, rather learning experiences, which shows a maturity beyond his years. Both still have one more day before they can truly figure out where they stand. Walker was at 9-under 135 and heads to Monterey Peninsula, the easiest of the three courses in the rotation. Spieth was at 9-under 134 and goes to Pebble Beach, which can be brutal in nasty weather. And the forecast for Saturday was not particularly pleasant. Along with a three-club wind on the exposed sections of all three courses, steady rain began coming down sideways toward the end of the second round. There was about a 75 per cent chance for more rain Saturday, and Sunday didnt appear to be much better. More than looking ahead, Spieth was looking behind. He was happy to at least geet Spyglass out of the way already, having opened with a 67 on Thursday. nfl jerseys china. That didnt make the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula a picnic. "Today was very difficult," Spieth said. "We started out in the rain and wind, and we finished in rainier and windier," he said. Spieth caught Walker for a share of the lead on the 187-yard ninth hole, which typically requires a 6-iron. He watched Kevin Chappell hit first with a 3-iron, and the ball rolled back down off the front of the green. Spieth doesnt carry a 3-iron. "I went to a hybrid," he said. "And I just kind of hit a little stinger cut about 20 feet away. And then it was normally a straight putt and Michael (Greller) and I, my caddie, are looking at each other saying, Well, weve got to play this about a foot out to the right with the wind. And so I hit it a foot out. With about 3 feet to go, the wind just blew it right, just broke perfectly right into the hole." Walkers best holes were his pars, particularly the par-5 14th. His 8-iron came back down into a bunker, leaving him such an awkward lie that he had to plant his feet outside the sand. With a shallow swing, he did well to blast out 12 feet away, and he made the par putt. "That was pretty big to keep it feeling like things were still in my favour," Walker said. He made two long birdie putts, and then hit a drive of nearly 390 yards on the seventh hole -- with the aid of a cart path. It left him only an 8-iron to the green, and he had an easy up-and-down for his final birdie. Hunter Mahan had a 68 at Spyglass Hill, with half of his six birdies on the par 5s. He was at 8-under 136. "Coming up these last few holes are tough," Mahan said. "Theyre uphill, they got the wind, its getting cold, raining. You just dont want to throw away shots. Because this can be a long week, and it could be mentally more grinding than anything." Phil Mickelson had a 73 at Pebble Beach and was five shots behind, even though he has taken 62 putts over two rounds. "Tee to green, Im playing very well, but I havent putted this poorly in a year," he said. "For the way Im hitting it, its a little disappointing because I should have a really good opportunity. And Ill have to turn it around. Its not too late, but Ive got to get it turned around here." cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings got a break, getting credit for a goal in perhaps one of the most bizarre ways in NHL history. Eliaquim Mangala Jersey . Niklas Kronwalls shot was deflected and bounced off the protective net out of play, caromed back over the glass, and struck goalie Jonathan Quicks back to tie the game with 26.1 seconds left in regulation. Tomas Tatar scored in the shootout, and Jimmy Howard stopped all three shots he faced in the tiebreaker to lift Detroit to a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night. "Thats embarrassing for the league," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "It doesnt matter if we wouldve scored it or they scored it." Kronwall seemed to agree. "It shouldnt have counted," he said. "But at this stage of the game where were at in the standings, well take it." The Red Wings, who lost their two previous games 1-0, are in fifth place in the Atlantic Division and are in a logjam for a wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Detroit avoided getting shut out in three straight games for the first time in the regular season, and the first time since the 1945 Stanley Cup finals against Toronto. The Kings, especially defenceman Drew Doughty tried to protest Kronwalls goal, but it wasnt reviewable because none of the officials blew a whistle to stop play when the puck hit the net. "They just said they didnt see it," Doughty said. "Its unfortunate. We shouldve got two points. "Ive never seen that before, thats for sure." Los Angeles took a 2-1 lead when Jeff Carter scored off a rebound during a power play with 2:15 left in the third period. Quick and Howard -- two of the three U.S. Olympic goalies -- bumped into each other and had a heated exchange during a stoppage in play midway through the second period. "We were just discussing what we were going to do in Sochi," Howard joked. Howard roughed up Kings forward Kyle Clifford when he slid into the crease. Howard and Mike Richards then shoved each other and were called for roughing. Howard later skated toward his bench during a break, Quick stood in his way to say something, and the two had to be separated. "For him to do that, I thought it was pretty cool," said Doughty, who will play for Canada next month at the Winter Olympics. "I loved it, actually." Howard finished with 30 saves. Quick, who stopped 33 shots, shrugged off the tough-luck loss. "Season ended against Chicago, Game 5, last year," he said. "Thats tougher." Richards broke a scoreless tie at 9:06 of the second, and Henrik Zetterberg tied it 41 seconds later. The Kings went ahead on a power play, but Dwight King was penalized for holding onto the puck with 1:45 left in regulation. That proved to be costly. "They could see the puck when Dwight King covered it with his hand, but they couldnt see it when it went over the barn and came back in," Sutter said. Zetterbergs goal ended a scoreless streak that lasted 152 minutes, 21 seconds and dated to last weeks win against the Kings. The Red Wings started a season-high, five-game homestand, and they hope that is good news. Detroit, which had won only one of its last eight home games, started Saturday with an NHL-low six home victories this season. The Red Wings won for just the second time in nine shootouts. Detroit was without seven skaters who would have been in its lineup if healthy, including Pavel Datsyuk for the sixth straight game because of a lower-body injury. Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said the team has players making "millions and millions," that never seem to play. NOTES: Tatar returned from a one-game absence to attend his fathers funeral and replaced Mikael Samuelsson. ... Kings D Matt Greene was scratched for a second straight game because of an upper-body injury. ... Datsyuk isnt expected to play Monday against St. Louis. ... The Kings, who had won two straight, are two games into a five-game trip. They have lost five straight at Joe Louis Arena. Lucas Digne Jersey . 31 as the deadline to submit an Olympic hockey roster, the deadline has changed. After appeals from some top European countries - namely Russia, Sweden, Finland and Czech - over the past 24 hours, the National Hockey League, NHL Players Association and the IIHF agreed to move the date to Jan. Yohan Cabaye Jersey . Free agent John Axford, who had 46 saves for Milwaukee in 2011 but has struggled the past two seasons, agreed to a one-year, $4.TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are making a case for saving coach Greg Schianos job with a strong second-half turnaround. The Bucs (4-9) beat the struggling Buffalo Bills 27-6 Sunday for their fourth win in five games following an 0-8 start that placed Schianos future in jeopardy. "We just dont quit, and that all starts with our head coach. Thats how he is," defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said. "Hes very consistent with his effort, and nothing really changes with how he prepares and how he comes to work every day that makes you want to work harder for that guy." Bobby Rainey scored on an 80-yard run on the second play of the game, Mike Glennon threw two touchdowns, and the McCoy-led defence forced five turnovers and sacked EJ Manuel seven times. "Our preparation is the same. Were just finishing games," McCoy said. "Were making the plays that we werent making before." The Bills have lost five of six, are assured of finishing without a winning record for the ninth straight year, and also are in danger of extending the NFLs longest current playoff drought to 14 consecutive seasons. Bills coach Doug Marrone held a team meeting after the game. "I find it very difficult after that game to stand up here and defend a lot of things," Marrone said. "I thought we played poorly. Actually, I shouldnt say I thought, I know we played poorly in all three phases," the coach added. "We had penalties. We had turnovers. We had misreads. We had missed tackles. We had things go wrong for us that there have been times during the year where weve been making improvement on it." Glennon wasnt exactly sensational coming off a 27-6 loss at Carolina, going 9 of 25 for 90 yards. But he had TD throws of 5 yards to Tim Wright and 38 to Vincent Jackson, who had three receptions for 70 yards to go over 1,000 for the season for the second straight year. Rainey finished with 127 yards on 22 carries. Buffalo, meanwhile, took up where it left off in a 34-31 overtime loss to Atlanta. The Bills lost fumbles on their final two possessions of that game, Stevie Johnson in the final minute of the fourth quarter and Scott Chandler two plays into OTT. Karim Benzema Jersey. This Sunday, they turned it over three times within a four-possession span of the second quarter, a stretch that might have been game-changing if Glennon hadnt thrown two interceptions. "We just have to figure out whats going on with this team," said Manuel, the first-round draft pick out of Florida State who doubled his interception total for the season. "I think we really have to find our identity," the rookie added, " We have three games left, we really need to finish strong moving on into the off-season and things like that." After outgaining the Bills 169 yards to 38 while building a 14-3 lead in the first quarter, the Bucs were limited to 77 net yards the rest of the way to finish with 246. It didnt matter. With Manuel throwing two interceptions in the second quarter and two more in the third, the Bills never made a serious move to get back in the game, finishing with field goals of 40 and 46 yards by Dan Carpenter. Manuel hit C.J. Spiller on an 83-yard scoring play that was wiped out by a fourth-quarter holding penalty. Leodis McKelvin muffed a fair catch on a punt inside the Buffalo 20, and a roughing-the-passer penalty -- albeit a borderline call -- against Jairus Byrd helped set up Glennons TD pass to Wright that extended Tampa Bays lead to 24-3 at the half. Byrd also had the 22nd interception of his career, moving him into a tie for 10th on Buffalos all-time list. Stephon Gilmores pick six minutes later prevented Tampa Bay from turning McKelvins muff into points. Linebacker Lavonte David had two of Tampa Bays four interceptions. He also had a sack. "Were playing really good football right now, and it all starts with our defence, with how many turnovers theyre forcing," Glennon said. "With the way our defence was playing, we did what we needed to do as an offence, and they did the rest. Its nice to see the second half of the season were 4-1." Notes: Raineys TD came 18 seconds into the game, the fastest score in Bucs history. ... Chandler had two catches for 24 yards, becoming the first Bills TE with consecutive 500-yard receiving seasons. ... David has an interception in Tampa Bays past three games. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

SAN DIEGO -- Tony Gwynns sweet swing was matched only by his incandescent smile. wholesale jerseys . The Hall of Famer was saluted at Petco Park on Thursday night in a ceremony that would have made "Mr. Padre" light up. Though, that wasnt something Gwynn had trouble doing. "It was so engaging," former teammate Steve Garvey said of Gwynns grin. "There are a few guys in sports that have it. You always think of Magic (Johnson), and Tony was baseballs Magic as far as that smile was concerned." Gwynn, a Hall of Famer who spent his entire 20-year career with the Padres, died on June 16 from oral cancer, a disease he attributed to years of chewing tobacco. He was 54. The 15-time All Star averaged .338 over a career in which he had 3,141 hits and won eight NL batting titles. A two-sport star at San Diego State before getting selected by the Padres in the third round of the 1981 draft, he was beloved for his achievements on the field and his humility on and off it. Gwynn never hid his affection for San Diego, embracing his "Mr. Padre" nickname and declining to leave San Diego as a free agent on numerous occasions. After retiring from the Padres following the 2001 season, Gwynn became SDSUs baseball coach. Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson and ex-Padre Trevor Hoffman were among the speakers who addressed the crowd of about 20,000 from a stage erected in right field, just in front of the No. 19 carved into the outfield grass. A podium was placed between three No. 19 Gwynn jerseys, two from the Padres World Series appearances in 1984 and 1998 and one from San Diego State. The left-field scoreboard showed a collage of pictures that ranged from Gwynn tipping his hat to the crowd and to him clutching his Hall of Fame plaque. And, of course, one displaying that warm smile. "We all know Tony was a great player, a great Hall of Famer," Jackson said. "That is known when he got 97 per cent of the vote -- that puts him in the top four or five. ... "He was a genuine man, a quality man, a 100 per cent family man. A great son, a great husband, a great father, a great friend and a great teammate. He was an example of what we all want to live and emulate as a person." Thursdays tribute, which started when 19 white doves were released, was open to the public following the private service Gwynns family held Saturday at SDSU. Gwynns fans, many wearing his brown-and-yellow No. 19 jersey, were given a chance to pay their respects to someone they felt they knew. He was an anchor of not only the Padres two World Series teams, but in the community as well. After leaving the Padres, he coached at SDSU, was a member of the Padres broadcasting team and remained active in various charities. A stream of people walked past Gwynns statue in the adjacent Park at the Park, with a line snaking past memorabilia of his storied career. Gwynn, whose No. 19 is retired by the Padres, batted at least .300 in 19 straight seasons. In 1994, he was hitting .394 in August when the season ended prematurely because of the baseball strike; in 1995, he struck out only 15 times in 577 plate appearances. But it was the way Gwynn carried himself that endeared him to countless fans. And not just those in San Diego. Gwynn has been honoured around baseball since his death. Tony Gwynn Jr., his son, was given a standing ovation Tuesday in Philadelphia in his first at-bat with the Phillies since taking a leave following his fathers death.

The Grizzlies announced the moves Monday. General manager Chris Wallace assumes interim responsibility for basketball operations. Jason Wexler, the Grizzlies chief operating officer, remains responsible for business operations. Robert Pera, the Grizzlies controlling owner, thanked Levien for his hard work in a statement. "Rest assured that we remain as committed as ever to bringing a championship to this great city, and we are confident that when the new season begins our fans will be excited about both our roster and the direction of our organization," Pera said. Levien had been the Grizzlies CEO since Pera and his ownership group took control of the team in November 2012, and one of his biggest decisions was the hiring of Lash as director of player personnel and former ESPN writer John Hollinger as vice-president of basketball operations. The first season went well as the Grizzlies reached the Western Conference finals for the first time in franchise history. Then Grizzlies decided not to bring back coach Lionel Hollins, instead promotting Dave Joerger to head coach. cheap china jerseys. Under the first-year coach, the Grizzlies went 50-32 and reached the playoffs for the fourth straight season. But Memphis lost in seven games to Oklahoma City in the opening round of the playoffs. Under Joerger, the Grizzlies struggled at the start of the season going 10-15. He also lost centre Marc Gasol 23 games with a sprained left knee, and guards Mike Conley and Tony Allen also missed games with injuries. Joerger wound up using 17 different starting lineups with Levien and the front office making a variety of moves bringing in Courtney Lee, James Johnson from the D-League and Beno Udrih off waivers. The Grizzlies had to win the final five games of the regular season to earn the No. 7 seed. But guard Nick Calathes was suspended for 20 games for violating the leagues anti-drug policy by testing positive for tamoxifen, Memphis was blown out with a chance to close out the Thunder on its own court in Game 6 and then Zach Randolph was suspended for Game 7.

JERSEY CITY, N. Yohan Cabaye Jersey .J. -- The Seattle Seahawks were focused on turnovers -- creating them on defence and not making them on offence -- at Super Bowl practice Thursday. It was "Turnover Thursday" for Pete Carrolls team, an approach that has worked well for the Seahawks this season. Seattles stingy defence led the NFL with 39 takeaways, a fact Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos are well aware of. Quarterback Russell Wilson prefers to call the 90-minute session "No-Turnover Thursday" for the offence, which doesnt want to give the Broncos any extra opportunities with fumbles or interceptions. "Turnover Thursday" followed "Competition Wednesday," a game-like practice session in which the Seahawks run a live scrimmage that includes a play clock. Stephane Ruffier Jersey . The teams official Twitter account quoted coach John Tortorella on Friday saying that Kesler "has a sprained knee and is out at least a couple of weeks". Zinedine Zidane France Jersey . -- A year ago, Flavia Pennetta was close to retiring from tennis.NEW YORK -- Martin Panza celebrated California Chromes charge to Preakness Stakes victory three weeks ago like most fans at the packed Pimlico Race Course -- bumping fists, slapping hands and thinking ahead to Saturday and the possibility of the first Triple Crown winner in 36 years. And then Belmont Parks director of racing operations thought about everything else: the tens of thousands of additional people who show up for the Belmont Stakes whenever a horse has a chance at history; the millions more in expected wagers; and the need for more of everything, from seating, concessions to bathrooms, security and about 1,000 additional workers. You can watch the Belmont Stakes on TSN this Saturday, with coverage beginning at 2:30pm et/11:30am pt. Local officials and business leaders celebrated too, seeing the race and the added interest of a Triple Crown contender as a boon of sold-out hotel rooms, dinners out and free publicity, so long as the writers and broadcasters were aware the track is actually on Long Island, as NBCs Bob Costas noted Wednesday, and not in New York City. If California Chrome triumphs, it will happen on Panzas turf -- or rather, his dirt -- at an marquee New York-area event that the tracks new management team reimagined earlier this year as a fusion of sports and entertainment worth attending even when the Triple Crown is not on the line. They have filled the undercard with high-stakes races, increased the days total purse to $8 million -- the second-richest day in American horse racing behind the final slate of the Breeders Cup -- and surrounded the action with music from rapper and actor LL Cool J, former New York Yankees centre fielder Bernie Williams and Frank Sinatra Jr. singing "New York, New York." "For the first year of us doing this, under this new format, its not going to get any better than this," Panza said in an interview near his track office, which was filled with boxes of Belmont Stakes caps and bags of other race souvenirs. "From our end, what we need to do now is observe how the day goes and see what we can do for next year, always thinking that there could be another Triple Crown on the line." California Chrome is the 12th horse to reach Long Island with wins in the first two legs of the Triple Crown, the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, since Affirmed won all three in 1978. Attendance for those 11 races averaged nearly 30,000 more than in years without a contender -- going from a low of 37,171 in 1995 when Thunder Gulch and Timber Country split the Derby and the Preakness, to a record 120,139 in 2004 when Birdstone upsett Smarty Jones in the last of a three-year stretch of Triple Crown contenders in the Belmont Stakes. Karim Benzema Jersey. On-site wagering on the race-day program also surged in those years, according to track records, jumping from $6.8 million in contender-less 1996 to $9.2 million the following year when Silver Charm took the first two races, and from $8.8 million in contender-less 2007 to $13.3 million when Big Brown raced for history in 2008. Ill Have Anothers wins in Louisville and Baltimore sent attendance for the 2012 Belmont Stakes to nearly 86,000 and on-site wagering to $13.8 million even though the horse was withdrawn the day before the race due to a leg injury. The head of the tracks management team said ticket sales for this years Belmont Stakes, with its emphasis on high-level racing and daylong entertainment, were already brisk before California Chrome broke from the gate at Churchill Downs in May. More than 70 per cent of tickets and premium tables for the race were sold before the Derby and all were gone before the Preakness, according to New York Racing Association president and chief executive officer Christopher Kay. After the Preakness, Kay said, they added a trackside tent and additional seating to accommodate the surge of interest in a potential California Chrome coronation. General admission and grandstand tickets costing $10 remained available through the track late in the week and more than 3,000 tickets, ranging from $12 for grandstand to $2,300 for a table for two at the Garden Terrace Restaurant, were available on the secondary ticket sales website Good weather -- 82 degrees and sunny, according to the National Weather Service -- could push the crowd into record territory. "Our intent is to make Belmont Stakes day an important day year in and year out," Kay said. This year it has been an important day -- and week -- for business. The largest hotel on Long Island, a Marriott with more than 600 rooms in Uniondale, and the ornate Garden City Hotel -- where management said all of the owners, trainers and jockeys in the Belmont Stakes were staying and where the menu includes a cocktail named for each horse -- have sold out under race-related demand. Other hotels were also booked solid, officials said, forcing some out-of-town fans to find lodging in Suffolk County, about 20 miles east, or stay in Manhattan, about 15 miles west. "This Triple Crown opportunity doesnt come too often," state hotel association chairman John Tsunis said. "But, whoever wins in the race, the real winners will be Long Island and New York State." cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '
Community FAQ / The new and amazing Phlappy Phil Kessel is now
« Last post by krstking22 on February 24, 2015, 08:40:31 PM »
Male curlers have joined their female counterparts in taking off a lot of their clothes for a fundraising calendar. Rui Patricio Jersey . Brad Jacobs, skip of Canadas national champions and world silver medallists, is among the dozen men who posed for a "2014 Men of Curling Calendar," released Tuesday. "In talking to some of the other curlers in the calendar, it was kind of go with as much skin as you can without making it too ridiculous," Jacobs said Tuesday. "Hopefully a lot of people will enjoy it, especially the women." Women have posed for an annual curling calendar for several years. Among them were Kaitlyn Lawes and Jill Officer, third and second respectively for Jennifer Jones, Olympic silver medallist Cheryl Bernard and Scottish skip Eve Muirhead. Theyve been photographed wearing curling clothes, workout wear, cocktail dresses and not a lot over the years. The men have gone straight to near-nudity in their first calendar. Manitoba skip Mike McEwen graces the calendar cover wearing tight shorts and nothing else while balancing on concrete blocks. Jacobs, who skipped Northern Ontario to a Brier title this year, says hes wearing a towel standing in the entrance of a sauna in his photo. "I did that because a lot of people know I love to have saunas," the 28-year-old said. In addition to Jacobs and his second E.J. Harnden, the mens calendar includes Olympic and world champion third John Morris, Glenn Howards lead Craig Savill, Jeff Stoughtons third Jon Mead, Norwegian skip Thomas Ulsrud, Swedens Niklas Edin and Scotlands David Murdoch. The Curling News publishes the womens calendar. When the invitation went out to the men, Jacobs says there were a few e-mail exchanges between them saying "Ill do it if you do it." Morris was the first curler invited and he helped recruit the rest, according to publisher George Karrys. "Im pretty laid-back so when I found out that most of the other guys were in, I had to be in," Jacobs said. At $29.95 per calendar, the curlers have committed to donating some of the proceeds to an organization of their choice. Jacobs, from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., has chosen the Soo Curling Associations junior curling program. The calendars are also available to curling clubs to sell as a fundraiser. Athletes employing their fit bodies to pose for calendars has become a popular way to raise money. The Canadian womens biathlon team published a nude calendar in 2008 and the national womens rugby team did the same two years earlier. After curling became a full medal sport at the 1998 Winter Olympics, curlers paid a lot more attention to physical fitness and off-ice training. Morris has a reputation as one of the fittest in the sport and Jacobs has muscular teammates who are in the gym a lot. "Probably when everyone heard they were doing a calendar, everyone started hitting the gym a little bit more," Jacobs said. Pepe Portugal Jersey . Amid lusty boos from a modest crowd on a rainy, 46-degree night, Cano began his first game in the Bronx since joining Seattle this winter for $240 million with a wink -- at Yankees starter CC Sabathia (3-3).

Bali is great destination to go. It is simply perfect destination for travelers and honeymooners to chill and relax in Bali private villas. Where should we go? Depending on the kind of experiences you want to have or the things you want to do, the answer will different. If you like cycling, green view in Bali is the best one. Riding a bike through the rolling hills of Tegallalang Ubud can be your choice. If surfing is the one you like, how about coming to Uluwatu? Besides enjoying great waves, you also can see the most beautiful temple sits on a cliff. If you want to have the most unforgettable dining experience on the island, Seminyak must be top on the list. Some great restaurants as well as nice ambience and tropical atmosphere here will make your holiday in Bali even better.
