BUFFALO, N. Arron Afflalo Jersey .Y. -- Once Lightning captain Steven Stamkos took himself off the free-agent market, the Buffalo Sabres turned to Plan B: Kyle Okposo.The Sabres signed the former New York Islanders forward to a seven-year, $42 million contract in one of the first deals completed after the NHLs signing period opened Friday.He was drafted high. He was a high-profile guy. And hes lived up to that, general manager Tim Murray said of Okposo, who was selected seventh overall in the 2006 draft.Its exciting to get a player of his caliber that had a choice of I wont say 30 teams, but certainly a lot of teams, and decided to come here.The three-time, 20-goal scorer fills a top-line need on a Sabres team that has spent the past two years rebuilding through youth. Murray already envisions Okposo playing right wing on a line centered by either Ryan OReilly or Jack Eichel.After playing alongside Islanders captain John Tavares, Okposo is already looking forward to the possibilities of what the Sabres lineup has to offer.What sold me first and foremost, and Ive been saying it all day, is the chance to win the Stanley Cup, and I think we have a lot of pieces in place that can help us achieve that goal, Okposo said.And when I looked at their forwards, and especially their top two centers in OReilly and Eichel, those guys are only going to continue to get better, especially Jack. Hes got superstar status.Okposo is an eight-year NHL veteran and regarded as one of the top players available on the market after Stamkos elected to re-sign with Tampa Bay on Wednesday. Murray noted that the Sabres had a face-to-face meeting with Stamkos and his representatives on Sunday.The Sabres are attempting to quicken their push to become contenders after showing signs of improvement last season. Buffalo finished 23rd in the standings this past season after two consecutive last-place finishes.After being part of a lengthy rebuilding plan on Long Island, Okposo likes the Sabres approach.I think theyre been going at an accelerated rate, Okposo said. I think we can get there quicker than I did with the Islanders.Okposo becomes the Sabres second-highest-paid player, behind OReilly, who signed a seven-year, $52 million deal shortly after being acquired in a trade from Colorado last summer. And Okposo is close with Sabres forward Matt Moulson. The two played together in New York, and are godfathers of each others children.Listed at 6 feet and 217 pounds, Okposo has scored 67 of his 139 goals over the past three seasons, including 10 game-winners and 11 coming on the power play.The Sabres have now addressed several key needs.Last weekend, they acquired veteran defenseman Dmitry Kulikov in a trade with Florida.Buffalo is also in the position to sign forward Jimmy Vesey, after acquiring the rights to college hockeys top player last season in a trade with Nashville two weeks ago.Murray said his next priority is meeting with Vesey and his representatives next week. The Sabres took a gamble in acquiring Vesey, who is eligible to become a free agent on Aug. 15.The Sabres on Friday also filled depth needs by signing free-agent defensemen Justin Falk and Taylor Fedun to one-year, two-way contracts.Falk split last season between the Columbus Blue Jackets and their American Hockey League affiliate. Fedun had a brief stint with Edmonton in 2013-14, while spending much of the past five seasons in the AHL.Without saying who, Murray said he had a verbal agreement to sign a backup goalie, but the deal fell through when the player reneged and signed with another team.Murray wasnt pleased with what happened by saying: Im going to leave it at that. I wouldnt say anything very nice, I guess.The Sabres need to restock their goalie depth behind starter Robin Lehner after backup Chad Johnson signed with Calgary.---AP Sports Writer Stephen Whyno contributed to this story. Grant Hill Jersey . Batiste, who briefly signed with the Eskimos in 2006, has spent time with several NFL teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins. Dwight Howard Jersey . Jordan Lynch, the all-purpose Heisman Trophy finalist from Northern Illinois, failed to make it into that exclusive club. . The 18-year-old American had five birdies in her bogey-free round for a 17-under total of 196. Lee held the overnight lead but mixed three birdies with two bogeys for a 70.With the frenzy of the free agent signing period far behind, there are still some prominent names looking to land an NHL home for next season. Leading the pack is veteran winger Jaromir Jagr, coming off a one-year, $4.5 million deal he signed with the Dallas Stars last season. The Stars dealt Jagr to the Bruins prior to the trade deadline and he helped Boston reach the Stanley Cup Final. The veteran forward posted 16 goals and 35 points in 45 games played last season, adding 10 assists in 22 playoff appearances for the Bruins.  Jagrs agent Petr Svoboda said last week that a few teams were interested in signing the future Hall of Famer, but alls been quiet since then. Also on the market is Brenden Morrow, who scored 12 goals and 13 assists in 44 games with the Penguins and Stars last season. He was traded to Pittsburgh prior to the trade deadline and jhelped lead the Penguins to the Eastern Conference Final. The 13-year veteran has scored 249 goals and 293 assists in 850 career games. Mikhail Grabovski, who was bought out by the Toronto Maple Leafs last week, is also waiting to be signed. He had four years remaining on his $27.5-million contract before being let go by the Leafs and struggled this season, recording just niine goals and seven assists in 48 games. Mohamed Bamba Jersey. In 367 career games, Grabovski has 94 goals and 123 assists. Mason Raymonds time with the Vancouver Canucks has come to an end as the unrestricted free agent winger is also available. Raymond had 10 goals and 22 points in 46 games this season. In 374 career games, the Alberta native has 80 goals and 178 points. Damien Brunner could be another interesting signing. The 27-year-old broke into the NHL last season after a career in the Swiss league, scoring 12 goals and 14 assists for the Detroit Red Wings. The goaltending market appears to be quiet, but Tim Thomas name is still being bandied about. Thomas, 39, spent last season as a member of the New York Islanders on paper. The Islanders acquired him in a trade with Boston after the Bruins suspended him for failing to report to training camp. The Islanders traded for Thomas to have the final year of his contract count for $5 million against their salary cap to meet leagues mandated $44 million minimum. Thomas played eight seasons with Boston and had a 196-121-45 record, with a 2.48 goals-against average and 31 shutouts in 378 career games. He won the Vezina and Conn Smythe Trophy in 2011 when the Bruins won the Stanley Cup.

The battle for the NSW State of Origin captaincy is far from a one-horse race, with Blues coach Laurie Daley declaring Boyd Cordner a serious option to replace the retired Paul Gallen. Brandon Fusco Jersey .Blues prop Aaron Woods is considered the front-runner to fill the role after appearing at the turning of the first sod at the Blues new spiritual home in Homebush last month.However, the Wests Tigers skipper is unlikely to be an automatic selection, with Sydney Roosters vice-captain Cordner among a host of candidates to lead the Blues in 2017.(Cordner is) a genuine contender. Its a big decision that we have to make so we have to make sure that we get the right person, Daley said at a NSW Indigenous camp on Wednesday.But theres a number of guys that can do it. Boyd certainly has experience in doing it at the Roosters, Woodss done it at the Tigers, (Josh Jacksons) got great leadership qualities as well.Theres a couple of other guys there, (Matt) Moylans a captain of a club side. Wade Grahams another one that leads his team. It will be a big decision and one well take our time on and hopefully the guy that is selected is there for a few years to come.The Blues coach said he will also be a keen observer of the Kangaroos upcoming Four Nations tour in England, for which 12 eligible Blues players have been included in the squad.Daley admitted he had already been impressed with the performances of the uncapped Shannon Boyd and dropped forward Trent Merrin in last weeks win over New Zealand.From a NSW point of view, obviously Shannon Boyd and Trent Merrin played well in the game last weekend, so thats good to see, he said.For 12 of our guys to go away on a tour, they get valuable experience. Jakey Trbojevic as well got a call-up. For us thats exciting because the more guys that get exposed and play at that level, and see how the Australian team goes about it, itll only be beneficial for us.Daley said Canberra front-rower Boyd is part of a larger group of young emerging props placing pressure on incumbents Woods, James Tamou, David Klemmer and Andrew Fifita.Fifita was last month controversially omitted from the Kangaroos team for failing to meet off-field behaviours expected of Australian representatives.(Boyd is) a guy thats always been on the radar and were quite lucky that weve got a number of good young up and coming front-rowers, Daley said.You can toss in Junior Paulo, (Reagan) Campbell-Gillard and Ryan James, these type of people who are 24 years of age and playing some really good football. Theyre putting pressure on the established guys that are there.The Blues are also close to making a call on where the team will base itself during the series next year as their new headquarters get built.

Ouellette, from Montreal, already has three Olympic gold medals since joining the team in 1999.David Hearn is headed home for a rest to prepare for the RBC Canadian Open after the best showing of his PGA Tour career. The Brantford, Ont., native took a week off to prepare for the national golf championship after finishing as the runner-up at the John Deere Classic on Sunday. He lost in a five-hole playoff with Zach Johnson and eventual champion Jordan Spieth. "I think getting a week off will help me a lot," said Hearn on Tuesday. "Ive been playing a lot of golf and I feel like my games been at a pretty good level, so getting a little bit of rest will definitely help me heading into the Canadian Open." Hearns put together the best season of his professional career, with two top-10 finishes and US$1,026,715 in earnings after 21 tournaments. Last year -- his first on the PGA Tour -- he competed in 28 tournaments, with two top-10 finishes, earning $1,012,575. "I think if you look at the way my career has progressed since I turned pro, or even before that, Ive always had an ability to continue to raise my level of game to the next level," said Hearn. "I feel like the last couple of seasons Ive had very good signs and Ive seen a progression in my game and I feel like Im continually getting a little bit better." His play has put him at No. 46 in the FedEx Cup standings, an improvement on his ranking of 108th last season. The top 125 golfers will make the FedEx Cup playoffs in late August, but Hearn sees winning the Canadian Open as a priority for every golf season, regardless of his ranking. "Being Canadian, this is our national championship and theres a lot of pride that goes into playing in it and playing well," said Hearn. "I dont qualify for all the majors on tour yet so this is one of the bigger tournaments that Im going to play. "When I look at the summer schedule its one of the events I definitely want to prepare well for." The national golff championship will be held at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ont. Brett Favre Jersey. , from July 22 to July 28, about 60 kilometres from Hearns hometown. This will be the 34-year-olds 11th Canadian Open, and the second year in a row that the tournament has been within striking distance of Brantford. Thats given Hearn the chance to rest at home and count on a large group to support him. "My parents and my wife and lots of family have always come out to the Open to follow me and last year in Hamilton it was real close to where I grew up in Brantford so I had a big following and Oakvilles not that much further away," said Hearn. "Im sure Ill have at least the same crew out that I get when Im real close to home, if not more." Hearn expects all the Canadian golfers in the tournament will have fans cheering them on. "Its a lot of fun for us to play in the Canadian Open," said Hearn. "We dont get that hometown feel very often on tour and we always have a lot of Canadians throughout the course of the year come up to us at various other golf courses -- Canadians are very proud of their athletes and golfers -- so were always running into people and theyre very supportive and definitely when we play in Canada its another level." There are 12 Canadians already in the tournaments field, with the possibility of more joining as qualifying continues across the country. Hearn believes the Canadian Open is a special event and that its evident to visiting golfers how important it is to the country. "The Canadian Open is one of the few national championships that we play on tour and it should have the respect from the other players," said Hearn. "I think that a lot of players do see that when they come to Canada its an incredibly well-supported event and the fans are great and we get amazing crowds. "Its certainly an event that guys want to be a part of."

READING, Pa. J.J. Redick College Jersey . - Alex Rodriguez "checked a lot of boxes" Monday during his first rehab appearance with the Double-A Trenton Thunder. He ran the bases, was tested in the field several times and engaged in a lively 12-pitch at-bat with Reading left-hander Austin Wright. And he also did something he hadnt done in a months — he homered. "Its been a long time," said Rodriguez, who couldnt remember the last time he hit a home run. He struggled in the American League playoffs last fall with the New York Yankees, and hadnt done much at the plate during his first eight rehab appearances over the last two weeks following off-season hip surgery. Monday he went 2 for 4 and played seven innings in the first of what could be three games with the Yankees Double-A Eastern League affiliate. The Thunder beat the Reading Fightin Phils 6-5. The 37-year-old, 14-time All-Star was happy with every aspect of his game Monday, but especially so with his 400-foot, two-run homer to left in the fifth inning, in his third at-bat against the 23-year-old Wright. It was his first home run since Sept. 14 last season against Tampa Bay. "To take a mid-90s fastball and hit it that way, I certainly was not able to do that the last two or three months of the season last year," Rodriguez said. "Thats definitely a good check in the box. "Yeah, that one felt really good. It felt pretty awesome. Im very happy with that. The ball is definitely coming off the bat different (than it was last week)." Despite looking so good on that swing, Rodriguez said hell need the entire 20-day rehab period that began July 2 before hes ready to return to the Yankees. "(Im) about six days away," he said. "I think Im par for the course. Its a process, its one step at a time. Tonight was by far the best Ive felt." Before the game, Rodriguez met with about 20 media members and for the first time admitted that he failed to show up for a scheduled rehab game last Friday in Tampa, but said there is no riff between him and the club. "Whatever I do with the organization, I will definitely keep private," he said. "But I will tell you I think over the last several weeks we have had very productive conversations and I think were all aligned to come back on time and healthy." Rodriguez met with investigators from Major League Baseball in Tampa on Friday to face questions about the Biogenesis probe. Team officials expected him to report for a game with Class-A Tampa but he was a no-show. On Monday, he would not address the Biogenesis case or his meeting with MLB officials probing the closed anti-aging clinic. "I cant touch that part," he said. "I appreciate you asking that question, but due to the process were not allowed to talk about that, but will in due time I hope to." Rodriguez has said he used PEDs while with Texas from 2001-03, but has denied using them since. He was linked to Biogenesis in a report in January by Miami New Times. It is unknown whether Rodriguez refused to answer MLBs questions, but he struck an optimistic note when asked about the state of the game given the ongoing investigation. "I think the game is in a great place," he said. "I love the game; Ive been in love with the game since I was born. Ive spent close to 20 years playing professionally. The game is doing well, and hopefully we can focus on all the great things that are going on and keep growing the game." Kyrie Irving College Jersey .

Players have seen their draft stock plummet, a number for concerns off the field, as teams prepare their boards and fine tune their plans for the big night in Chicago.Ill be live blogging the event into the early hours of Friday morning, with help from Alex Ferguson (@viewfromamerica) so I thought I would put together my prediction of how things will go. So here goes with my first round mock draft - all of this assuming no more trades are made:1 Los Angeles Rams - Jared Goff (QB - California)The Rams return to Los Angeles this season and make the Cal quarterback the face of their franchise for the future. Who cares if his hands are a little small and hes not actually the best player in the draft?2 Philadelphia Eagles - Carson Wentz (QB - North Dakota)Wentz might be a better professional prospect than Goff, but its tight between the two. The Eagles have given up plenty for this pick and they have to pray the small-school man works out for them.In whatever order, it appears Goff and Wentz will go one and two…then things get interesting and somewhat less predictable.3. San Diego Chargers - Laremy Tunsil (OT - Mississippi)The quarterback hype-train enables San Diego to get the best, but least sexy, player in the draft. Philip Rivers will love this pick as will whoever eventually takes over from him. Offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil of Ole Miss participates in a drill during the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine 4. Dallas Cowboys - Jalen Ramsey (CB - Florida State)Possibly the best defensive player in the draft and one the Cowboys probably cant avoid taking. Their choice likely comes down to Ramsey and Joey Bosa, who would help them cover a couple of possible suspensions.5. Jacksonville Jaguars - Joey Bosa (DE - Ohio State)Bosa was dominant in college and the Jaguars, who have improved in most areas through free agency, do still need a big pass rusher. The Buckeye ticks most of the boxes.6. Baltimore Ravens - Myles Jack (LB - UCLA) Not many elite middle linebackers in this draft, but Jack fits the bill. The big concern for teams drafting him are his knee issues, but Jack pairing up with CJ Mosley would make the Ravens defence one to fear again. Linebacker Myles Jack of the UCLA Bruins 7. San Francisco 49ers - Ronnie Stanley (OT - Notre Dame)The 49ers have plenty of needs, but pass protection could be No 1 after a dreadful 2015 season for supposed star QB Colin Kaepernick. He might not even start this season, but whoever does will need a player like Stanley looking after them. Richard Graves Mock Draft Richard Graves is in Chicago for Sky Sports, running the rule over the 2016 NFL Draft class and wher 8. Cleveland Browns - Ezekiel Elliott (RB - Ohio State) Many expect the Browns to trade further down the draft but should they stand pat, adding a potential franchise running back would have to be the call. They would have a triple threat from their backfield with him, pass catching threat Duke Johnson and quarterback Robert Griffin III (if he can still run).9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Vernon Hargreaves (CB - Florida) There seems to be consensus that the Bucs will target secondary help with this pick and the Gators prospect is not rated too far behind Jalen Ramsey in a decent cornerback class. Defensive back Vernon Hargreaves of Florida 10. New York Giants - Leonard Floyd (OLB - Georgia) The Giants will look for pass rushing help and Floyd fits the bill as a hybrid, who could play downs on the front line or as an outside linebacker. He bulked up ahead of the scouting combines after criticism of a lack of power at times.11. Chicago Bears - DeForest Buckner (DE - Oregon)An elite edge rusher dropping to 11 would be ideal for the Bears, who could also look at Floyd if Buckner has already gone, even though their need at linebacker decreased through free agency signings of Danny Trevathan and Jerrell Freeman. NFL Draft: Beginners guide From crucial quarterbacks, to blockbuster trades and tears on the telephone, heres our essential gu 12. New Orleans Saints - Sheldon Rankins (DT - Louisville)The Saints were a hot mess on defence last season and have to rebuild there. Rankins is absolutely huge and should immediately be an every down player helping them against the pass and run.13. Miami Dolphins - Eli Apple (CB - Ohio State)The Dolphins will hope that Elliott drops in their lap, but it seems unlikely unless they can move up a few slots. Their secondary was distinctly second-rate last season so this kind of pick could well bear fruit (sorry, couldnt resist!). Eli Apple (L) of the Ohio State Buckeyes breaks up a pass intended for Amara Darboh #82 of the Michigan Wolverines 14. Oakland Raiders - William Jackson III (CB - Houston) Jackson has been a draft bolter in recent months and could find a nice home in Oakland, where much is expected of an improved team. They added Reggie Nelson and Sean Smith in free agency and Jackson would provide further quality in an area they struggled last year.15. Tennessee Titans - Jack Conklin (OT - Michigan State)The Titans started to rebuild with QB Marcus Mariota last year, and they have traded down from the No 1 slot to land a number of picks in this draft. With this pick they could add someone, in Conklin, who can help protect their star asset.16. Detroit Lions - Shaq Lawson (DE - Clemson)The Lions have offensive line needs as well, but if Lawson drops he will be tough to pass on. Would foorm an excellent double punch with the under-rated Ziggy Ansah. Jabari Parker College Jersey. Lawson out to seize NFL chance In the first of our series of interviews ahead of the 2016 NFL Draft, Shaq Lawson tells us about his 17. Atlanta Falcons - Darron Lee (OLB - Ohio State)Yet another Buckeye could come off the board here with the Falcons in desperate need at linebacker. Hes very quick and athletic, and would be a good complement to last years early pick Vic Beasley.18. Indianapolis Colts - Taylor Decker (OT - Ohio State) Five first-round Buckeyes and counting. Decker is a very good run-blocker, a great pile-pusher and would really give a boost to the all-new Titans running game, of course now featuring DeMarco Murray.19. Buffalo Bills - Paxton Lynch (QB - Memphis) This is my pick should there be no trades but a few teams really like Lynch, some more so than the likely top two selections, and could easily trade up to snag him before now. If not the Bills get a fine quarterback to take over from Tyrod Taylor, perhaps as early as opening day. Paxton Lynch of the Memphis Tigers 20. New York Jets - Reggie Ragland (ILB - Alabama) The Jets are probably #1 candidate to trade up for Lynch, making this pick something of a lottery. Should they get stuck without their new franchise QB, then Ragland would make up for the loss of Demario Davis to Cleveland.21. Washington Redskins - Laquon Treadwell (WR - Mississippi) The Redskins could easily go front-line defence here (AShawn Robinson or Jarran Reed) but Treadwell would give them a huge receiver for the future, which will likely start without one of DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon in 2017. Both veterans are free agents next year.22. Houston Texans - Corey Coleman (WR - Baylor)Expect a rush on wide receivers in this part of the first round, with the Texans adding the perfect complement for DeAndre Hopkins. Tight end a possible here as well, but top-rated Hunter Henry could be something of a reach, and Colemans speed is a real asset. Corey Coleman of the Baylor Bears 23. Minnesota Vikings - Josh Doctson (WR - TCU) Another wideout comes off the board, and this one might have most impact in season one. Hes got great hands, but would probably prefer to land somewhere with a better quarterback situation than Minneapolis, where there is also a new stadium effect to throw in.24. Cincinnati Bengals - Will Fuller (WR - Notre Dame)You guessed it, wide receiver again. These last four picks could easily be inter-changeable. Fuller is a similar player to Coleman, with speed a huge asset, and that would probably help open up some space for AJ Green and Tyler Eifert.25. Pittsburgh Steelers - Artie Burns (CB - Miami)The Steelers need help in the secondary more than anywhere else. They would love for Jackson or Apple to fall this far, and it is possible, but if not Burns would be a handy addition. Artie Burns of the Miami Hurricanes rushes during a game against the Florida Atlantic Owls 26. Seattle Seahawks - Robert Nkemdiche (DT - Mississippi)On pure talent Nkemdiche belongs much higher in the draft, but hes had…lets just call them issues away from football and carries risk with him.  But whats not to like about a guy who wants to buy a panther if he is drafted in the first round?27. Green Bay Packers - Andrew Billings (NT - Baylor)Billings is a big body and size up front is something the Packers really need. Jarran Reed would also be a target here, although Billings projects as a better fit. NFL Draft: Top pick QBs A quarterback is set to be selected No 1 in the 2016 Draft, so we take a closer look at some previou 28. Kansas City Chiefs - Kevin Dodd (DE - Clemson)The Chiefs improved a great deal last year and another pass rusher could just push them over the edge in terms of a Super Bowl run. Dodds stock has risen all year, and it could even see him taken earlier than this, but if hes available Id expect the Chiefs to pounce.29. Arizona Cardinals - AShawn Robinson (DT - Alabama) Predictions for Robinson have been all over the board, from just outside the top 10 to not being picked in the first round at all. But I could see Arizona taking a chance on him if he drops, and run stuffing was one of their few issues last season. AShawn Robinson (R) of the Alabama Crimson Tide 30. Carolina Panthers - Jason Spriggs (OT - Indiana) Spriggs proved an excellent pass protector in college, and keeping Cam Newton safe should be one of Carolinas chief concerns this season. Hes still got a bit to learn on the technical side of the game, which is fair since he came through high school playing tight end.31. Denver Broncos - Connor Cook (QB - Michigan State)Predictions for the Broncos are all over the board, but the Super Bowl champions desperately need a quarterback to mould for the future, assuming they dont think Trevor Siemian is it. Cook is a winner, and he can run as well, and its doubtful he would last to the end of the second - a reach, but probably worth it.

Good novels with a motor sport theme are hard to come by. Kevin Knox Jersey . There were many excruciating examples in the 50s and 60s when, fitting the period perhaps, drivers were all jolly good chaps and eventually got their girl -- or gal. The villain usually reeked of garlic and drove for a foreign team run either by a dastardly cove smoking untipped Gitanes or a mysterious Count with slicked-back hair and driving an Italian supercar.Bob Judd set new standards 20 years ago thanks to bolstering his genuine enthusiasm for the sport by becoming part of racing circus on both sides of the Atlantic. Added to which, he is a fine writer with an eye for detail; two attributes not necessarily a given with his predecessors.For me, the best fiction motor sport book of all time is Stand On It by Stroker Ace, actually written by William Neely and Robert K. Ottum as an autobiography of a fictional driver based on actual events from the racing world in North America. Published in 1971, its been many years since I first came across the paperback but Im sure it would continue to have me doubled over if I read it today. It was so good, they made the film Stroker Ace starring Burt Reynolds but, as often happens, much of the subtly generated by the truly clever writing was lost in translation.Im mentioning this because Im currently on holiday and brought with me an advance copy of Crash, a novel by Toby Vintcent with a Formula One theme. The brash title did little to dispel a reluctance to turn the first page and get going.I read it in four sittings (okay, I didnt have much to do while lying on the beach) but that should indicate that this is a pacey, well-written story. F1 forms the backdrop but not the main theme, which can best be described the intrigue and nastiness of Russian politics.The chapters are short; a clever format that encourages page-turning, as in: Ill just read this next chapter....and the next...oh, and this one, too. Thats because the plot moves along at a brisk pace, starting with a massive shunt that kills a number of spectators. Initially, this seems ghoulish and the mechanics of the accident come across as slightly bizarre. But those details become irrelevant as the story reveals all.If the detail involved in the motor racing narrative is to be a barometer, then it is to be assumed that Vintcent has carried out an equally diligent and extensive research in the other areas touched by his plot -- specifically, the machinations of Russian politics. If the real Charlie Whiting reads this novel and finds himself a touch perturbed initially about the insinuation that one of the race tracks is not safe, his unease will be nothing compared to President Putins feelings over how his country and the books fictional leaders are portrayed.The story line is comfortably easy to follow thanks to clever recapping of events by the main characters. As with all good novels, there are parts that marginally stretch credibility. But who cares? Its a motor racing novel that works; a cracking read worth putting in your bag for the coming holiday.Crash by Toby Vintcent (Arcadia Books) Kristaps Porzingis Jersey . U.S. District Judge Lorna G. Schofield in Manhattan agreed that lawyers on both sides could make their formal requests by Nov. 8. A hearing is scheduled for a day earlier.

The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season.

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 -- The last time Mitch Marner remembers attending a Maple Leafs game as a fan, Mats Sundin returned to Air Canada Centre as a Vancouver Canuck.Over seven years later, Sundin was back to see his No. 13 raised to the rafters, and Marner was there, too, scoring his first NHL goal to help Toronto roll over the Boston Bruins 4-1 for its first win of the season on Saturday night.Marner got his first goal in only his second game, joined on the scoresheet by fellow rookie and Toronto native Connor Brown. Their efforts came on the heels of Auston Matthews historic debut, when he became the first player in the modern NHL to score four goals in his first game.Its a lot of excitement and obviously theres going to be (a) learning curve and growing pains throughout the way, but theyve been playing great so far, teammate James van Riemsdyk said of the youth movement.Brown and Marner opened the scoring about 10 minutes apart, landing the Leafs in the record books once more. Toronto became the first team since expansion in 1967-68 to have rookies combine for the first six goals to start a season, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.Brown had the games first goal after barely two minutes, joined shortly after by the 19-year-old Marner and then van Riemsdyk a few minutes after that.The fourth overall pick of the 2015 draft, Marner took a pass from Tyler Bozak just outside the Boston blue line, gained the offensive zone with space and fired a shot far-side past goaltender Anton Khudobin.A native of nearby Thornhill, Ontario, Marner followed with an exuberant celebration.To finally be playing in front of these fans for real, its pretty crazy, Marner said. And for the first one to go in in front of them, its kind of sweet.Outside of Matthews, Marner was perhaps Torontos most dangerous player in a season-opening overtime loss to Ottawa on Wednesday. He had six shots in the 5-4 overtime defeat, following that up withh a goal and four more shots in 15-plus minutes against the Bruins on Saturday. Courtney Lee Jersey. Hes shown a knack for getting behind the oppositions defense, finding a seam and some space for his first goal on Saturday.Thats just good anticipation and good smarts where he can pick his spots to use his speed to get himself in those situations, van Riemsdyk said.Marner said hed give the puck from his first goal to his parents.Anton Khudobin allowed four goals on 20 shots for Boston. David Pastrnak scored his third goal in two games this season.Overall, not a good enough effort on our part, said Bruins coach Claude Julien. And at the end of the night, you dont deserve the win.The worst team in the NHL last season, the Leafs have quickly shown themselves to be a much faster and highly skilled entity in the early days of this season, led by Marner, Matthews and 20-year-old William Nylander. Often that youth shows itself in less effective ways though, including a messy second period in which Torontos sloppiness with the puck led to chances and sustained offensive zone time for Boston.Id like us to obviously take better care of the puck and so well learn how to do that, Leafs coach Mike Babcock said afterward.Frederik Andersen gave up only one goal on 25 shots following his wobbly five-goal outing in Wednesdays season opener.Matthews was quiet on Saturday after his unparalleled showing earlier in the week. He was held point-less and finished with only two shots in nearly 17 minutes.Game notes The Maple Leafs retired 17 sweaters in a pre-game ceremony, altering a long-standing team policy where jersey numbers were honored but not retired.UP NEXTBruins: Conclude their season-opening three-game trip Monday night at Winnipeg.Maple Leafs: Begin a three-game trip Wednesday night at Winnipeg.

LONDON -- With the Russian doping scandal still causing bitter discord across the international sports world, Olympic leaders meet Saturday to consider ways of revamping a global drug-testing system battered by political disputes and a loss of public confidence.The role of the World Anti-Doping Agency, proposals for an independent testing body and the continuing investigation into state-backed Russian doping are expected to be discussed at the Olympic Summit in Lausanne, Switzerland.The finger-pointing and blame game against WADA have ramped up recently, with several IOC members publicly blasting the organization for its handling of the Russian doping crisis.There seems to be a lot of people who refuse to accept that the base problem was institutional Russian cheating, WADA President Criag Reedie told The Associated Press. WADA cannot and will not be held responsible for Russian cheating.The International Olympic Committee said officials will debate ideas for a more robust, more efficient and more independent worldwide anti-doping system, including further talks on making the entire system independent from sports organizations.We will make recommendations for WADA to improve in a very constructive way, IOC President Thomas Bach said. We will ask WADA to take the organizational measures to perform these tests in a more efficient and more robust way.The closed-door meeting, to be held at a luxury Lausanne hotel, will be attended by about 20 officials, including IOC vice presidents, heads of major international sports federations, and presidents of the U.S., Russian and Chinese national Olympic committees.Its uncertain whether the deliberations will produce concrete decisions or simply a set of broad principles ahead of an extraordinary world conference on doping next year.We need to really properly understand who is responsible for what, IAAF President Sebastian Coe told the AP on Friday. We need to settle on arrangements that satisfy the clean athletes. Im not sure its any more complicated than that.The delegate with perhaps the most at stake is Reedie, whose agency has been harshly criticized by IOC members. The fallout from WADAs recommendation to ban Russias entire team from the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro- rejected by the IOC -- continues to roil the waters and will hang over Saturdays discussions.A report by WADA investigator Richard McLaren detailed state-supported doping and cover-ups across dozens of winter and summer Olympic sports in Russia. It also backed allegations by Moscows former lab director that doping samples of Russian athletes were manipulated during the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.The IOC turned down WADAs call to impose an outright ban on Russia from the Rio Games. The IOC deferred to individual international sports federations, and about 270 Russian athletes wound up competing in Rio. Bach said the decision was made in the name of justice to prevent clean athletes from being punisshed for the violations of others. T.J. Watt Jersey. The Institute of National Anti-Doping Organizations said Thursday the IOC lost the anti-doping battle before the Rio Games, declaring: The IOC failed the clean athletes of the world.McLaren is scheduled to release his final report by the end of the month, focusing on the doping manipulation in Sochi. Those findings could lead to disqualifications, stripping of medals and calls for Russia to be banned from 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang.IOC members have accused WADA of failing to act soon enough on Russian doping and criticized the agency for releasing the McLaren report so close to the Rio Games.We made a recommendation when we got the (McLaren) report, Reedie said in a telephone interview this week. The IOC chose a different decision on eligibility. Weve moved on. We need to move on together with calmness and cool heads.In the past few weeks, several IOC members -- notably Juan Antonio Samaranch Jr., Sergei Bubka and Gerardo Werthein -- have publicly castigated WADA.They are responsible for what goes on inside international laboratories but their labs in Sochi and Moscow were like Sodom and Gomorrah, Samaranch told a Spanish newspaper.Some have suggested that WADA be restructured or replaced. But Reedie and others believe the agency should be strengthened with greater funding and more powers to investigate, monitor compliance and apply sanctions.IOC executive board member Gian Franco Kasper believes WADA should stick to technical issues and stay out of politics.The summit is not to punish WADA, he told the AP. For the anti-doping, WADA is an excellent organization.Bach has proposed the creation of an independent body -- under WADAs umbrella -- to carry out global drug-testing, making the system more independent by taking it out of the hands of sports federations. He said the body should be operational before the Pyeongchang Games.Reedie said WADA experts have done all the technical work on the proposal, which will be discussed at the agencys executive committee meeting in Glasgow, Scotland, in November. WADA could set up a subsidiary company to run the new body, which would cost tens of millions of dollars, Reedie said.Its unclear whether the proposed body would take over anti-doping for all Olympic sports. Coe said he plans to brief the summit on the IAAFs plan to launch its own integrity unit in early April that will act as an independent anti-doping body handling results management and sanctioning for track and field.We want to share our insights on this, Coe said. We have to be clear in defining independence. We have to make sure there isnt going to be any watering down of our approach.---Follow Stephen Wilson on Twitter: His work can be found at Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' ' 
OAKLAND, Calif. Matt Bryant Jersey . -- Marcus Mariota and Derek Carr look ready for the season to start after a successful preseason dress rehearsal.Mariota led Tennessee to scores on all four drives he played and Carr threw two touchdown passes for Oakland and the Titans beat the Raiders 27-14 on Saturday night.All in all, guys have put in the work, Mariota said. Weve built a pretty solid offseason in the preseason. Now its just putting it all together once the season starts.With the starters getting their most playing time in the third week of the preseason, the offenses looked in midseason form while both first-team defenses struggled mightily.That left Raiders coach Jack Del Rio frustrated, especially about a first-team run defense that couldnt slow down DeMarco Murray or Derrick Henry on the ground.I take it real personal, Del Rio said. I dont know what to tell you. I dont have a good alibi for it. It bothers me. You cant be a great defense doing that.Mariota had the Raiders scrambling all night, faking out DJ Hayden on an option run and beating Oaklands top cornerback Sean Smith on a couple of plays.Smith nearly intercepted a pass to Tajae Sharpe on the opening drive and safety Nate Allen jumped in apparent celebration. But Sharpe caught the ball and got by the unsuspecting Allen for a 60-yard gain that set up Murrays 1-yard TD run.Mariota survived a big hit from Ben Heeney to convert a third down to Andre Johnson on the next drive that led to the first of two field goals.It was good to get a hit like that and get the cobwebs out a little bit, Mariota said. But I was glad we got the first down and kept moving the ball.Mariota then led one more TD drive late in the half before calling it a night. He finished 9 for 16 for 170 yards.Carr was just as sharp, completing 10 of 15 passes for 146 yards. He was able to hit a couple of deep passes, including a 41-yarder to Michael Crabtree on the opening drive and a perfectly placed 29-yarder to Amari Cooper in the end zone for his second TD pass.You see the hard work paying off, Carr said. We hit some today. Its good to see. Hitting those are just reps.Carr capped the opening drive with a 6-yard TD pass to rookie DeAndre Washington. He nearly had a third TD, but missed an open Clive Walford in the end zone late in the first half.ROOKIE WATCHTitans: Henry used his size to overpower Raiders defenders at times and rushed for 49 yards on 12 carries with a 3-yard TD run.Raiders: Rookies Washington and Jalen Richard provided sparks as they make a case to become the primary backup running back to Latavius Murray. Washington ran for 55 yards on eight carries to go with his TD catch and Richard had 35 yards on seven runs. Washington lost a fumble when he was drilled by Sean Spence after catching a short pass from Matt McGloin. David Bass returned it 47 yards for a score.INJURY UPDATETitans: TE Delanie Walker left in the second quarter after losing his breath briefly.Raiders: S Reggie Nelson and LB Neiron Ball sat out with undisclosed injuries.POSITION BATTLESTitans: Quinton Spain, competing with Sebastian Tretola for the starting left guard spot, played the entire first half and helped Tennessee run for 106 yards and kept pressure off Mariota.Raiders: Rookie MLB Cory James got some time with the first-team defense in place of starter Ben Heeney.QUOTABLETitans: Great play, great hit, great timing of it. Those are the plays that we need to make. Those are the plays that were capable of making, coach Mike Mularkey on Spences forced fumble.Raiders: When youre playing a running team like that, you have to play gap-sound defense, you have to set edges, you have to play gaps or theyll make you pay. They made us pay tonight, linebacker Bruce Irvin said after Oakland allowed 106 yards rushing in the first half.---Online:AP NFL website: and Brett Favre Jersey .

ATLANTA -- Evan Gattis blames himself for not getting his catchers mitt lower and keeping Adeiny Hechavarria from scoring on a wild pitch. Had he done so, the Atlanta Braves might still have a long winning streak, but Gattis says the teams goal now is to win the three-game series. "Yeah, man, we had a good run," Gattis said. "I hate that it ended." The Braves 14-game winning streak ended Saturday night with a 1-0 loss to the last-place Miami Marlins, who scored on reliever Jordan Waldens wild pitch in the ninth inning. Miami stopped its own six-game skid. The Braves fell one victory shy of tying the 2000 team for the franchises longest winning streak since the 1891 Boston Beaneaters won 18 straight. Hechavarria led off the Miami ninth with a triple and scored on the wild pitch by Walden (4-2). "Im more disappointed in not blocking it," Gattis said. "I didnt see the replay, but Im pretty sure I just came up on it. I think it went through me. I just came up on it a little bit with my mitt." Marlins starter Nate Eovaldi allowed one hit in seven innings. Mike Dunn (3-3) got the win and Steve Cishek earned his 24th save, striking out Paul Janish with a runner on first to end it. Both teams finished with just three hits. Hechavarrias NL-leading sixth triple bounced against the bottom of the wall in left-centre field and was the games only extra-base hit. He scored standing up -- ending the Marlins 22-inning scoreless string -- when Waldens fourth pitch to the next batter, Ed Lucas, got past Gattis. Cishek posted his 19th straight save. He got Justin Upton to line out and Freddie Freeman to ground out before Gattis singled. Janish took a called third strike. Chad Qualls recorded one out in the Atlanta eighth before Andrelton Simmons reached on an infield hit. Dunn struck out pinch-hitter Brian McCann and retired Jason Heyward on a groundout. Eovaldi allowed a first-inning single by Freeman and retired his final 14 batters. He walked three and struck out eight. "Theyre a great team," Eovaldi said. "I threw the ball really well tonight, It was just a great win all around." Braves rookie starter Alex Wood had retired 12 straight batters before Jeff Mathis singled with two outs in the fifth. Custom Boston Bruins Jerseys. Wood gave up two hits, struck out seven and walked one in six innings. Relievers David Carpenter and Luis Avilan combined to allow no baserunners and strike out three over the next two innings. Eovaldi received no run support for his fifth straight start. The Marlins havent scored while Eovaldi has been in a game since his 8-3 victory over Washington on July 12. He has a 1.04 ERA in his last four starts. "Hes always had a good arm to me," Heyward said after going 0 for 3. "Attacks the strike zone, has a lot of movement on his pitches, especially the fastball. Sometimes its a little bit wild and effective as far as which side of the plate." Braves third baseman Chris Johnson, who leads the NL with a .338 batting average, was ejected by plate umpire Jim Joyce to end the first after taking three pitches -- all fastballs -- for strikes with runners on first and second. Johnson yelled at Joyce and threw his bat and helmet before walking to the dugout. After a 54-minute rain delay, Janish replaced Johnson. Johnson was upset with himself for not being in the batters box with two out in the ninth. "Yeah, Im one of those guys that wants to be in the game the whole time and wants to be in that spot," he said. "So, yeah, Im definitely kicking myself a little bit." Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton didnt play. Manager Mike Redmond said he gave his star the night off because "it seems like hes just really grinding and not having a whole lot of fun out there." The Marlins have the NLs worst winning percentage and theyre last in the majors in homers, RBIs and slugging percentage. NOTES: Walden left the game after taking a liner off his pitching hand from Logan Morrison, the third batter he faced. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Walden might need a couple of days to rest his hand, but added that the injury didnt appear serious. ...

In what the team had called a retirement, Ryan said Thursday that he is resigning as chief executive of the Rangers in a move effective at the end of this month.When Craig MacTavish became the Edmonton Oilers general manager in April, he promised changes would be made. In early June, he said trades would be good for both Shawn Horcoff and Ales Hemsky. "[The] ideal scenario would be to move them on and wish them the best," MacTavish then told The Team 1260 in Edmonton. Fast-forward to the present and Horcoff is now a Dallas Star, but Hemsky remains an Oiler. Speaking at Rexall Place during the Oilers Hockey School on Wednesday, MacTavish addressed Hemskys future and said he now believes he can be a useful piece for the club. "We all know how good he is and we all know what an impact he had the last time the Oilers made the playoffs," he said. "Were hopeful that given this new environment and more competitive team going forward, thats really going to play to Ales skill set and hell be able to help us." With a $5 million cap hit, MacTavish admitted he found little interest from other teams in the 29-year-old forward, but was comfortable with Hemsky remaining an Oiler. "I know one thing, hes a real good player," he said. "Given the right situation, he is going to score 65 points in this league if he stays healthy. Those guys are normally pretty coveted." Hemsky is in the final season of a two-year, $10 million deal. He had nine goals and 20 points in 38 games last season.
