Zlatan Ibrahimovic opened his account in the EPL as Manchester United cruised to a 3-1 win against Bournemouth on the south coast. Laken Tomlinson Super Bowl Jersey .There was little between the two sides in a tight first half with neither keeper being particularly tested, before a mistake from Simon Francis just before the break gifted Man United an opener.The Cherries defender knocked a weak back pass to Artur Boruc who managed to clear the ball with Juan Mata putting him under pressure, but his clearance struck Francis before rolling back towards the Bournemouth goal which allowed Mata the easiest of tap ins.In the second half, Man United started strongly before doubling their lead just before the hour mark.Antonio Valencia was given space to venture forward down the right all afternoon and on 59 minutes his cross picked out Anthony Martial, who sliced his shot wide of the target but into the path of Wayne Rooney, and the Man United captain showed great skill and composure to head the ball back across goal and into the bottom corner.That goal took the wind out of Bournemouth and Man United quickly took advantage with a third just five minutes later.Ibrahimovic was given far too much space 25 yards from goal and the summer signing took his time before firing into the bottom corner with a clinical finish.The Cherries were given a glimmer of hope on 69 minutes when Adam Smith pulled one back with a fine finish from inside the area but that goal only improved the concentration of the visitors for the final 20 minutes, and Jose Mourinhos side comfortably cruised to an impressive victory on the opening weekend of the season.

Kiriasis and brakeman Franziska Fritz finished two runs in one minute 55.41 seconds -- a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of Meyers and Lolo Jones, who likely bolstered her Olympic hopes by helping give USA-1 a huge push in the second heat.

Their 38th instalment is arguably their biggest fight card to date, including three-title fights and a main event which was selected by the fans.  The promotion boasts 14-straight years of business and is operated by MFC president Mark Pavelich, who is often overlooked in this country for the foundation hes established for MMA in Canada. . Rob Manfred, baseballs chief operating officer, testified last week during the grievance filed by the players union to overturn Rodriguezs 211-game suspension. A person familiar with the hearing, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Manfred testified the sport wasnt concerned whether Bosch distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors because MLBs interest was his relationship with players under investigation. MIAMI -- Ray Allen won championships in Boston and Miami, made one of the most memorable shots in NBA Finals history and has more 3-pointers than anyone who ever played in the league.More than two years after his last game, hes decided that was enough.Allen announced his retirement on Tuesday in a post on The Players Tribune website. Allen spent 18 seasons in the league with Milwaukee, Seattle, the Celtics and the Heat, averaging 18.9 points in 1,300 regular-season games and appearing in 10 All-Star Games.I write this to you today as a 41-year-old man who is retiring from the game, Allen said in his post, which was in the form of a letter to his younger self. I write to you as a man who is completely at peace with himself.NBA Commissioner Adam Silver called Allen an extraordinary player.On behalf of the NBA family, I want to thank him for being a wonderful ambassador for the game, Silver said.Allen entertained thoughts about a comeback over the last two years and had plenty of opportunities from title-contending teams. But nothing ever lured him back, although the door always remained a tiny bit open -- until now.Basketball will take you far away from that school yard, Allen wrote. You will become far more than just a basketball player. Youll get to act in movies. Youll travel the world. You will become a husband, and the father of five amazing children.Allen starred in the 1998 Spike Lee film He Got Game. He portrayed Jesus Shuttlesworth, a top-ranked basketball prospect, whose father (played by Denzel Washington) is in prison for killing his wife.We have had many great players through the years, but Ray is probably the No. 1 name brand weve had, said Jim Calhoun, who coached Allen at UConn from 1993-96. We, at UConn, can all be proud of what he accomplished here and the greatness that he achieved when he went on to the NBA.On the court, teammates and coaches raved about Allens famed work ethic and commitment to fitness -- which now takes a different form, after he and his wife, Shannon, recently opened an organic fastt-casual restaurant in Miami. Weston Richburg Super Bowl Jersey. . Allen was almost always on the floor for a workout three hours before games, shooting on some occasions before the arena lights were even turned on.If you had to cut out somebody and make a poster child for these young guys to look up to, that is a guy I would put in front of them, said Memphis coach David Fizdale, an assistant with Miami during Allens time there. This is how you become a great player. This is how you become a great person in your community.Allen had the record for 3-pointers in a season for seven years, his mark of 269 standing until Stephen Curry of Golden State made 272 in 2012-13 -- a record Curry has topped twice.The greatest shooter to play the game, Curry wrote in a tweet Tuesday, congratulating Allen on his career.In all, Allen made 2,973 3-pointers in regular-season games, which doesnt even count the one that was his most unforgettable.His 3-pointer from the right corner with 5.2 seconds left in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals for Miami sent the Heat to overtime against the Spurs in a win-or-else game, and helped them go on to win the title in seven games. Chris Bosh got an offensive rebound and passed to Allen, who was backtracking toward the corner.Allen, without even needing to look down to ensure that he was behind the line, elevated over Tony Parker and connected to tie the game -- even as arena workers kneeled around the court, holding the rope that they presumed they would soon be called upon to cordon things off for the Spurs championship celebration.On his way back to the bench to prepare for overtime, Allen gestured to those workers, shouting to put the rope away.Its going to be a shot that Im going to remember for a long time, Allen said that night. Theres a lot of shots that Ive made in my career, but this will go high up in the ranks.---AP Basketball Writer Jon Krawczynski in Minneapolis contributed to this story. ' ' '
