CHICAGO -- Tom Ricketts was walking back to the owners meetings Wednesday when he was stopped by a few people on the street, eager to congratulate him on the Chicago Cubs World Series title. Authentic Custom Celtics Jersey .Such is life for Ricketts these days. It has been two weeks since the franchise won its first championship since 1908, and the party is still going strong.Its great. I mean the teams a member of the family for a lot of folks, Ricketts said, and the fact that we had this kind of success after all these years of not quite getting there is just magical for this whole city.Ricketts will be acknowledged by his fellow owners for the title at some point during the meetings, but otherwise its pretty much business as usual. Asked whether he might be handed a few more bar tabs as a result of the historic championship, a grinning Ricketts responded: Well see tonight.Among the steak dinners, drinks and hallway chatter at The Drake in downtown Chicago, the dominant item on the owners agenda is baseballs collective bargaining agreement, which expires Dec. 1. Negotiators for owners and players have been meeting since spring training.Baseball has not had a work stoppage since 1994-95, and Commissioner Rob Manfred appears confident there will be an agreement by December.I trust the commissioner, trust the commissioners office, New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner said. Theyre going to do a great job, and everybodys been working hard. Thats about all I could add.Some of the major issues include the owners desire for a draft of international amateur players, the luxury-tax threshold and whether there will be changes to the draft-pick compensation system for premier free agents.The uncertainty surrounding the CBA could affect free agency and trade talks, but Steinbrenner made it sound as if the Yankees are pretty set about their plans no matter what happens with the labor talks.I dont think its going to impact it much as far as where were going to be, Steinbrenner said. I mean weve got money coming off the payroll for the first time in a few years, and were going to put a decent portion of it back into the club, like we always do. How much remains to be seen, depending on what our needs are and whats available.The Yankees traded slugger Carlos Beltran and relievers Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman in a rare pre-deadline sell-off on their way to an 84-78 record and a fourth-place finish in the AL East. Steinbrenner reiterated his desire to get under the luxury-tax threshold, wherever it lands with the new agreement, but he mentioned upgrading the bullpen as a priority.That could lead to a reunion with Chapman, who saved 20 games for the Yankees before helping the Cubs win the World Series.Look, anytime you can get a guy thats already proven he can play in New York ... its a tough place to play and if you can get a guy thats proven he can play there, then thats a plus, Steinbrenner said.Everyone is chasing the Cubs after they won a major league-best 103 games and the franchises third championship. But winter also is the season for stadium renovations, and the Yankees and Cubs are both working on construction projects.Yankee Stadium is getting more social gathering places, and the club also is enhancing its facility in Tampa, Florida. Wrigley Field is getting what Ricketts called a home plate club of premium seats, similar to other stadiums, but nothing as dramatic as when the jumbo videoboards were added to the iconic ballpark for 2015.Now it really is primarily about rebuilding the park and adding bathrooms and adding points of sale and doing all the little things to make it not only the park you would want to watch a game in, but one that serves as then like a modern park, Ricketts said.---Jay Cohen can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/jcohenap Custom Celtics Jersey China .

Its no secret that Texas A&M Aggies fans take their football very seriously -- especially former players. Willie Stargell Jersey Large . NFL Hall of Famer and former Aggie Bruce Matthews and his sons Kevin Matthews and Mike Matthews (also former Aggies and NFL players) went all-out in showing their team spirit Thursday leading up to the Aggies matchup with Ole Miss.How all-out are we talking? Try blowing up an Ole Miss helmet with a military tank, kind of all-out. Yes, we said tank.According to Tex Ags, their reasoning for creating the video stems back to the Texas A&M-Ole Miss rivalry.A&M hasnt beaten Ole Miss since 2013, so we brought in the big guns in the form of NFL offensive linemen ... and a tank ... to help us turn an Ole Miss helmet into a crater.And that, they did. The Aggies go head-to-head with the Rebels Saturday at Kyle Field at 7:30 p.m. ET.-- Courtney Schellin Cheap Custom Pirates Jersey .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch. Custom Pirates Jersey China . -- Running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings were back at practice for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday despite being hampered by hamstring injuries. http://www.custompiratesjersey.com/ . It was the second consecutive win for the Pacers (2-5), who lost their first five preseason games. Jeff Teague led the Hawks (1-5) with 17 points and eight assists and Al Horford had 12 points and seven rebounds. Mike Scott scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half. The Buffalo Bills and Seattle Seahawks enter Monday nights matchup running neck-and-neck in the Football Power Index. The Bills have a slight edge, ranking sixth overall, while the Seahawks are eighth. Because they are so close in overall team quality as measured by FPI, the Seahawks home-field advantage looms large and provides the Seahawks with a 62 percent chance to win Monday night.The two teams have achieved their FPI rankings in very different ways. The Bills are consistently better than average in all three areas of the game: offense, defense and special teams. They do not crack the top 10 in any area but are better than 15th in all three. The Seahawks, meanwhile, continue to field a top-10 defense and special teams, but their offense has fallen to 22nd in the league.The cause of the demise of the Seahawks offense -- which ranked second overall in FPI at the end of last season -- is no secret. Russell Wilson has struggled for most of the season, and his struggles have led to an offense that has not been able to deliver. WWilson ranked fourth overall in QBR in 2015, but through seven games this season his performance ranks 27th and he has only had three games where his performance could be classified as above average. Custom Willie Stargell Jersey. .Last season, Wilson was one of only two QBs who were in the top 10 in points added through both passing and running (Ryan Fitzpatrick was the other). While Wilsons passing has fallen a little this season, its his rushing that has gone off a cliff. Last season he created nearly a point per game with his legs, while this season he ranks 31st in the league by giving up nearly half a point per game with his legs.The Seahawks defense and special teams have only overcome one poor performance this season from Wilson to get a win, so for the Seahawks to take advantage of their home-field advantage, Wilson will need to locate the value he was previously able to create with his legs as well as his arm.

One big nitpick that buy Maplestory M Mesos fans that are original had was the method of leveling your character up. Because quests provide enough EXP to maintain your own character, Luckily, that is not the case anymore.

INDIANAPOLIS -- As Penn States band played and Lucas Oil Stadium rocked, thousands of fans clad in their traditional white shirts chanted We Are Penn State.It might have been more fitting if had it been We are Penn State -- and we are back.Five years after a child sex abuse scandal tainted the reputation of the school and its football program along with the legacy of late coach Joe Paterno, quarterback Trace McSorley put the Nittany Lions squarely back in the national spotlight Saturday night with an epic 38-31 come-from-behind victory over No. 6 Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game. It was the largest comeback in the six-year history of the game.Before coach James Franklin left the field, he was already lobbying the playoff committee to put No. 8 Penn State in the final four.What I do know is that we just won the toughest conference in college football, he said. Weve won nine straight. They say youre allowed to overcome minor setbacks. Weve done that. Its up to you, committee.The Nittany Lions resume is impressive.Since rebounding from a 39-point thumping against Michigan on Sept. 24, Penn State (11-2, No. 7 CFP) has won every game, handed No. 2 Ohio State its only loss of the season and on Saturday rallied from a 21-point first-half deficit to end the Badgers six-game winning streak. Penn State also finished as co-champs of the Big Ten East, a division many considered the toughest in the nation, and now has its first conference crown in eight years.Many, including die-hard Penn State fans, wonder whether that will be enough to jump up three spots in the committees rankings. Some fans even held signs that read we smell roses.While McSorley, who was named the games MVP after a record-breaking performance, has even higher hopes, hes content to let his coach lobby for a playoff spot.Coach said what he needed to say, Im going to enjoy this moment with my teammates, McSorley said before leaving the stage on the field.It was certainly a moment worth savoring.McSorley finished 22 of 31 for 384 yards with four TD passes, breaking the title game records for yards and TD passes. He also broke the schools single-season records for yards passing and touchdown passes.And McSorley wasnt the only one putting on a show. Saeed Blacknall caught six passes, two for touchdowns, and finished with a championship-game record 155 yards. DaeSean Hamilton caught eight passes for 118 yards, most in the second half when the Nittany Lions repeatedly burned the nations No. 3 defense with deep throws.What was most imppressive was how they won it. Discount Custom Nike NFL Jerseys. enn State trailed 28-7 with 5:15 left in the first half. Thats when McSorley and the Nittany Lions offense finally got in sync by scoring touchdowns on each of their next four possessions -- the last an 18-yard TD pass to Saquon Barkley with 13:41 left in the game. The Nittany Lions never trailed again.They made some plays down the field and we didnt make enough to make McSorley feel uncomfortable, Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst said.Wisconsin (10-3, No. 6 CFP) played without starting quarterback Alex Hornibrook but jumped to the big lead behind Corey Clement, who ran 21 times for 164 yards including a 67-yard TD run in the first quarter.But the Badgers usually stout defense allowed a season-high point total.Wisconsins final chance ended when Clement was stopped short of a first down on fourth-and-1 from the Penn State 24-yard line with 1:01 to go.THE TAKEAWAYPenn State: Consider the turnaround is complete. Five years after the Jerry Sandusky scandal tainted the program and the late Joe Paternos legacy, and the ensuing NCAA sanctions seemed to put the Nittany Lions on the fast track to nowhere, they are Big Ten champs and look like a real national championship contender.Wisconsin: After winning their first two title game appearances, the Badgers have now lost their two -- in shocking fashion. Coach Paul Chryst never could have expected this from a defense that hadnt allowed more than 30 points all season and had only allowed No. 2 Ohio State to gain more than 400 yards in a game this year.POLL IMPLICATIONSPenn State: Coach James Franklin insisted all week that his team was focused more on winning a Big Ten title. Now, the lobbying can begin -- if Franklin wants to. The argument goes like this: Co-champs of the toughest division in college football, championship game winners of the best conference in football and the only team to beat No. 2 Ohio State. Will it be enough?Wisconsin: In the first half, the Badgers looked like they would be making their case to the committee. Instead, the Badgers have no idea what will happen next.UP NEXTPenn State: Will eagerly wait to see who is next on the schedule.Wisconsin: Will wait to see who the Badgers will get in the postseason, one that could have been much more interesting had they protected their lead.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 ' ' '

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots shredded the NFLs No. 1 defense early on, opening up a 20-point halftime lead.Thats when the Ravens special teams got them back in the game.Baltimore forced fumbles on back-to-back return plays early in the third quarter and twice took advantage of a short field to turn the halftime deficit into a one-score game. But Tom Brady connected with Chris Hogan on a 79-yard touchdown pass and the Patriots held on to win 30-23.Our special teams stepping up and making those plays. They were huge plays, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. Its always a play here or a play there that makes the difference.The Ravens entered the week with the NFLs top-ranked defense, allowing an average of just 296.1 yards per game. But Brady threw for 406 yards and LeGarrette Blount ran for 72 to surpass 1,000 yards for the season.Blount also collected his franchise record-tying 14th touchdown of the season on a 1-yard run in the first quarter that gave New England a 9-0 lead .Baltimore fell behind 16-0, and it was 23-3 when the Ravens went three-and-out and brought on Sam Koch to punt. Returner Cyrus Jones let the ball land, and it nicked his foot as it bounced toward the goal line; Jones and Chris Moore chased after the ball, but Moore got to it first and recovered at the 3.Two plays later, Joe Flacco connected with Darren Waller for the touchdown.On the ensuing kickoff, Patrick Onwuasor stripped the ball from returner Matthew Slater for another fumble . The Ravens took over at the Patriots 22 and needed just four plays to get into the end zone, making it 23-17 on Flaccos pass to Kenneth Dixon from the 8.Tonight, we had two turnovers tthat were really crucial. Harrison Smith Jersey Youth. That can make the difference in the game, Ravens return specialist Devin Hester said. Sometimes you have control of it, and sometimes you dont. The one that hit his foot, he couldnt get to it in time and he tried to move out of the way.It wasnt all good from the Ravens special teams, though.Justin Tuckers 34-yard field goal attempt was blocked when Patriots linebacker Shea McClellin jumped over the center and landed in the backfield.I dont know what happens in their meetings, but the guy made a good play on the ball, said Tucker, whose onside kick in the final minutes was easily recovered by the Patriots, enabling them to run out the clock.Brady helped his stats with a 61-yard catch-and-run by James White and the 79-yard play-action that left Hogan wide open deep down the middle of the field .Its something that we preach about, through the whole OTAs, camp, preseason and all that. We want to eliminate big plays. We had a bust, Ravens linebacker Zach Orr said. If you miss an assignment, Tom Brady and those guys will exploit that to the max.But Brady also threw an interception in the end zone right before halftime, costing the Patriots a scoring chance.We turned the ball over three times tonight. Three situations that I would say were pretty preventable, coach Bill Belichick said when asked about Jones fumbling problems. Well work on it with everybody. Its everybodys job to protect the ball who handles it.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '

ORCHARD PARK, N. Cheap Redskins Jerseys .Y. -- Ralph Wilson Stadium is entering a New Era.The Buffalo Bills announced on their Twitter account on Saturday they reached an agreement to sell the naming rights of their home stadium to Buffalo-based New Era Cap Company.The team did not provide any further details except to say a news conference will be held next week.Two people with direct knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press the deal will run over the remainder of the teams seven-year lease. New Era also has the right of first refusal to continue the agreement once the current lease expires in 2022, and also if the Bills elect to build a new facility.The people spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team and New Era have not disclosed that information.The people said the agreement was reached about 10 days ago, and after the Bills made a formal presentation to New Era company officials -- including company president and CEO Christopher Koch -- about six weeks ago.The value of the agreement was described by one of the people as being close to average market value for NFL stadium naming rights deals. Without providing an exact figure, the person said it was well north of $3 million per year.Bills co-owner Kim Pegula posted a note on her Twitter account saying: Proud to be partners with a hometown team (at)NewEraCap.Bills president and managing partner Russ Brandon also tweeted: Looking forward to a tremendous partnership with an iconic Buffalo company.The agreement will provide new revenue to a small-market franchise that has spent much of the past 17 years expanding its regional base. That included Buffalo playing regular-season games in Toronto over a six-year period from 2009-13.The Bills stadium is named after the teams late Hall of Fame owner, Ralph Wilson, who died in March 2014.Wilson elected to place his name on the stadium in 1999, after a 25-year naming agreement expired with Buffalo-based Rich Products.The Bills first began considering selling the stadiums naming rights about four years ago before narrowing their focus on New Era because of its local ties.New Era was established in Buffalo in 1920 and now controls about 66 percent of the sports cap headwear market.New Era is the worlds largest outfitter of team caps, having struck 500 licensing deals worldwide, including the NFL, Major League Baseball, the NBA and the NHL.

CHERBOURG-EN-COTENTIN, France -- Strangely, Peter Sagan did not celebrate his first Tour de France yellow jersey with his trademark wheelie.He did not even pump his fist or raise his arms as he crossed the finish line on Sunday to end a three-year winless run at cyclings showpiece race.That wasnt because of the misfortune endured by his teammate Alberto Contador, who fell off his bike for the second consecutive day and lost precious time in the battle among the race favorites.The world champion simply didnt know he had won the stage.Im very surprised I won, because I was thinking there were still two guys in front, said Sagan, who made the most of a steep, short climb in a frenzied finale to win the second stage of the Tour in Normandy.It was Sagans fifth stage win on a Tour, and his first since 2013.Having been criticized sometimes for poor tactics -- he has been a runner-up in 16 Tour stages, Sagan used his raw power on the 1.9-kilometer Cote de la Glacerie leading to the finish line to claim the win.He waited patiently in the wake of Julian Alaphilippe, who started the final sprint, before timing his acceleration to perfection to overtake the Frenchman and win by a bikes length.A debutant at the Tour, Alaphilippe was second in the 183-kilometer stage between Saint-Lo and Cherbourg-en-Cotentin, with Spaniard Alejandro Valverde in third place.Sagan, who already has four best sprinters green jerseys to his name and won the Tour of Flanders classic earlier this season, also claimed the lead in the points standings.In big races, experience counts, he said. I did a lot of sacrifices to come to the Tour de France in good form but its never easy to win, even if it looks easy sometimes.On a day of mixed fortunes for the Tinkoff team, Contador crashed again and was dropped in the final climb, losing 48 seconds.Im physically hampered, Contador said. I cannot pedal as I would as the result of the crashes. The important thing is to keep my morale, not fall apart, which is sometimes complicated. Both legs are very roughed up.After just two days of racing, the Tour has already been marred by several crashes, a problem that Sagan likened to the all-risk approach in the peloton.Nobody cares, it looks like riders have lost their brains, he said. When I started in cycling in 2010, there was respect, and when somebody was doing something stupid we would throw bottless at him. Cheap Custom Redskins Jersey. Today nobody brakes. So Im in yellow, but tomorrow I can go home.Belgian Jasper Stuyven, who was part of an early breakaway group that formed after the start of the stage, almost thwarted Sagans plans when he tried to go for a solo win, but was reined in with 500 meters left.Overnight leader Mark Cavendish finished just behind BMC co-leader Richie Porte, who was among the big losers of day, crossing the finish line 1 minute and 45 seconds behind Sagan after a puncture.Cavendish started the day with a four-second lead over Marcel Kittel, with Sagan in third place, six seconds behind. The Slovak rider now has an 8-second lead over Alaphilippe, with Valverde in third place 10 seconds back. Chris Froome, last years Tour winner, is fifth overall after Sundays stage, 14 seconds behind Sagan.All 198 riders took the start in Saint-Lo under grey skies but Cavendish brought a splash of color to the scene.Wearing yellow for the first time, the Briton marked the special occasion with a customized bike featuring yellow handlebar and pedals.Stuyven and three other riders immediately broke away from the peloton on slippery roads near the English Channel as rain started to fall. A crash split the main peloton in two after 60 kilometers. Spaniard Joaquim Rodriguez and Contador, who suffered cuts and bruises on his right shoulder in a crash during Stage 1, were among the riders caught up in the incident.Contador fell on the same shoulder and was forced to change bike. He was helped back into the pack by five Tinkoff teammates as the pace slowed down at the front.There were some broad smiles on the riders faces as the sun finally broke through the clouds with 100 kilometers left, drying the roads and warming bodies in the peloton.The pace in the bunch barely moved until 55 kilometers to go when Cavendishs Dimension Data outfit started to push forward.The pelotons chase started a bit late, as the final battle shaped up with rain falling again and Stuyven almost upseting all the favorites.I felt a little bit empty on the steep part, said Stuyven, who made his breakthrough last year when he won a stage at the Spanish Vuelta. Unfortunately, I was 450 meters short.---AP Sports writer Andrew Dampf contributed to this story. ' ' '
