ckey brethren at the World Cup.While the tournament has unfolded, NHL training camps have opened from q123's blog

The thrill and heartbreak that permeated Game 7 of the 2016 World Series between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians might not have yet subsided for fans of those teams. Authentic MLB Jerseys . Highlights of that epic contest have continued to roll into mid-November, and now there is a stop-motion re-enactment of the games most memorable moments.A team of animators known as thefourmonkeys released on their YouTube channel earlier this week a video that relives Game 7 using Lego-like OYO Sports mini-figures.The minute-long video begins with Dexter Fowlers leadoff home run off Corey Kluber in the first inning, complete with Rajai Davis leaping attempt at the center field wall. Next is Javier Baezs opposite-field home run in the fifth inning, followed by?Jon Lesters wild pitch that led to two runs for Cleveland in the bottom half of the frame. Cubs catcher David Ross falls backward as the ball skips away, and the Indians Jason Kipnis chases?Carlos Santana home with a head-first slide at the plate.The animators would be remiss if they did not feature Davis game-tying home run off Aroldis Chapman in the eighth inning, and they even nailed small details such as the ball nicking the left-field camera and LeBron James muscle-flexing reaction.Special effects that simulate rain set the closing scenes, as thefourmonkeys capture the tense weather delay, with umpires conferring, the tarp coming onto the field and even the Jason Heyward-led team meeting in the clubhouse.The video concludes with Ben Zobrists game-winning double down the left-field line?in the 10th inning and the series-ending play on which third baseman Kris Bryant throws across the diamond to retire Michael Martinez.According to thefourmonkeys website, the team is a family of four that prefers to remain anonymous by referring to themselves only as monkeys. They revealed that they use a MacBook computer with Final Cut Pro and Dragonframe stop-motion software along with a Canon EOS T2i camera to develop most of their videos.-- Nick Ostiller Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys .Y. -- Injured Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno did not practice with the team Monday and head coach Ron Rolston said its unlikely hell play in Wednesdays season opener in Detroit. Jermaine Marrow Jersey . I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. . They reached the 100-point plateau for the fourth time in five games, bested the visiting Trail Blazers by 34 in the paint and scored 19 of the final 25 points in regulation. TORONTO -- Somewhere in Germany, a young girl is waiting patiently for the World Cup of Hockey to end. Christian Ehrhoffs oldest daughter is, of course, hoping the best for her father and the rest of Team Europe as they try to solve the mighty puzzle that is Team Canada in the tourney finals.But more than that, the Ehrhoff family, which includes 7-year-old Leni and her two younger sisters, is waiting to see what happens next once the Team Europe jerseys are packed away.Will the phone ring?Who will be on the other end?What will the school look like in the city of the NHL GM who makes that call because he has been suitably impressed by Ehrhoffs play?Last year, Leni Ehrhoff started school in Germany but transferred to Los Angeles when the veteran defenseman signed late in the offseason with the Kings. She then attended classes briefly in Chicago, after Ehrhoff was dealt to the Blackhawks at the trade deadline, before finishing up the school year back in Germany.It is part of the business, to be sure, but in the midst of this tournament Ehrhoff finds himself in the unique, if not unnerving, position of basically auditioning on the world stage for 30 NHL teams as an unrestricted free agent.Team Europe teammate and German countryman Dennis Seidenberg was in the same boat entering the tournament, and he discussed his situation Wednesday afternoon.I think some days are easier than others, but for the most part you just try to focus on your game, and thats all you can do and should do because otherwise you just mess yourself up and make it hard on yourself, said Seidenberg, whose family is in Boston, where hes been playing since he was traded to the Bruins during the 2009-10 season.Still, Seidenberg said he never considered skipping this tournament while his future was uncertain.It was no question in my mind I was going to be here, whether I had a contract orr not, he said. Nike NCAA Jerseys 2020. Its a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play against all those teams, the best teams in the world, and its been a lot of fun so far.Literally minutes after Seidenberg finished his interview and left the media room, it was revealed that hed agreed to a one-year deal with the New York Islanders.So that leaves Ehrhoff, a 34-year-old native of Moers, Germany.According to a source, two Eastern Conference teams and one Western Conference team have ramped up their interest in the puck-moving defenseman, who has three assists and is averaging 13:56 in ice time per night for Team Europe.Once the tournament is over Im going to talk to my agent, and were going to figure out the next step then, Ehrhoff said Wednesday as the team prepares for a must-win game Thursday night in Game 2 of the best-of-three finals against undefeated Canada, which won Game 1 on Tuesday, 3-1. Game 3, if necessary, is scheduled for Saturday.Right now my focus is solely on Team Europe, Ehrhoff said.Both Ehrhoff and Seidenberg played at an Olympic qualifying tournament about a month ago, where they helped Germany qualify for the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, before joining their new hockey brethren at the World Cup.While the tournament has unfolded, NHL training camps have opened and exhibition games have been played. Lineups are being formed.Still, Ehrhoff insists he isnt fretting about what might happen after the last World Cup game is played.No, not really, because I feel like Im in good shape right now so I already have an advantage in that kind of way, Ehrhoff said. Like I said, Im not in any kind of hurry. Im focused on Team Europe right now, and well take care of the rest once the tournament is done, hopefully Saturday. ' ' '
