North Queensland have consolidated their spot in the top four with a comfortable 20-0 shutout of South Sydney in Cairns. Cheap Air Jordan Outlet Store .In front of a strong crowd of 14,923 at Barlow Park, the defending premiers barely got out of first gear to claim their most comprehensive win in almost a month, and extend the Rabbitohs losing streak to five.The Rabbitohs barely fired a shot in front of a strong Barlow Park crowd of 14,923, who instead watched Cowboys skipper Johnathan Thurston put on a clinic.The Queensland State of Origin star scored a try and had a hand in another, helping the visitors consolidate their spot in the top four before getting a well-deserved early mark in the 75th minute.While Cowboys coach Paul Green was delighted with keeping the Rabbitohs scoreless, co-captain Matt Scott rued an opportunity to pour on the points.We were good without being great, Scott said post-game.Defensively it was a lot better, we spoke a bit about that during the week.Letting in five tries against Manly last week was a bit disappointing and defensively we came out and improved a lot.With the ball we can be a bit more clinical, we controlled field position pretty well but execution a couple of times let us down.For the Rabbitohs however, the defeat continues their miserable 2016 campaign and leaves them with the near-impossible task of winning all eight of their remaining games to make the finals.Led by James Tamou and Matt Scott, the Cowboys forwards strolled through the Rabbitohs middle with concerning ease, paving the way for Thurston and company to ruin John Suttons 250-game celebrations.Greg Inglis and Luke Keary tried hard for the visitors, as did Sam Burgess, although the star forward succumbed to a knee injury midway through the second half.The game started horribly for the home side from the moment winger Joe Burgess was trapped in his in-goal following Kyle Feldts trademark towering kickoff.Right from the start, the possession in the game definitely went against us, but thats rugby league, Rabbitohs coach Michael Maguire said.Youve got to be able to handle those periods, right through that first half we werent ale to build momentum in what we were trying to do and they did.From there it was all the Cowboys, who used a 65 per cent possession rate in the first half to lay on tries for Thurston and Scott and take a comfortable 14-0 lead at the break.A try to Javid Bowen kicked the advantage to three tries early in the second half before the Cowboys closed out the match by keeping an opposition side scoreless for the third time this year.

This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. http://www.airjordanoutletsale.com/ . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Today the fighting men from the former Soviet Republics and the Communist states that made up the glorious sporting empire of the Eastern Bloc can openly fight as professional boxers.The fighters have left Tashkent for LA, swapped Vladivostok for Miami and traded forever an ancient Medal of the People, the typical appreciation symbol for success at the Olympics, for a few million dollars tucked away in a bank.The flight from the faded regimes and the limited horizons of old-fashioned amateur boxing started over 25 years ago with a mixed trickle of defectors and defective bruisers. They fought in Chicago and New York, often close to other Polish, Uzbek or Russian émigrés and before about 1999 most seemed to fall short.There is a patron saint of frustrated Communist boxers, the slick Hungarian Laszlo Papp, three times an Olympic champion, and throughout his belated professional career he was the leading contender and overlooked. Papp turned professional in 1957 when he was 31 and went unbeaten in 29 fights in Europe before giving up in 1964 on his lost cause to fight for the world title. The Hungarian government and reluctant American champions ruined Papps mission.In 1978 Yugoslavias Mate Parlov was the first boxer from behind the Iron Curtain to win a world title when he became the WBC light-heavyweight champion. Parlov famously defended his title at the Red Star stadium in Belgrade against John Conteh in 1978. Conteh lost, Parlovs corner saved their boxer from potential cuts by fixing a crazy and now fully illegal coating of something toxic and synthetic across his eyebrows before the first bell. There was another long break, a long wait after Parlov lost his title later the same year.Men like Kazak Oleg Maskaev, who turned professional in 1992, won the WBC heavyweight title in 2006 but in 1995 fought for a Pacific title at York Hall in Londons east end against Nikolai Kulpin, another Kazak. Kulpin once fought Johnny Nelson in Thailand for a version of the world heavyweight title. In 1992 world amateur champion Kostya Tszyu left the collapsed Soviet Union to settle in Australia, where a year earlier he had won the amateur title, to begin a decade long reign of terror.The towering East German Henry Maske won his world titlee in 1993 and launched the German boxing business. Discount Jordans. By the end of the 1990s the Eastern Bloc fighters were everywhere. The Beast from the East, Nikolai Valuev -- all seven foot and 20 stone of him -- fought in south London in 1996 and briefly had Frank Maloney as a manager.The modern fighters from behind the Iron Curtain or the Eastern Bloc, take your pick, need to nod their heads to the pioneers, the known boxers that made an impression when they left their distant homes to follow a wild dream of getting paid to fight. There are others that simply appeared in the record books and then disappeared, a forever lost tribe of Alexanders, Vassilys and Timors now working anonymously in America. In the 1990s in Las Vegas there was always a new wonder kid from Russia, who was often from Uzbekistan, and he was at the fights with a slippery manager, a man in pointed shoes often with a gold tip. The generic pair shook hands, smiled, made promises and often told fibs. Then they vanished.Gennady Golovkin is arguably the most entertaining and exciting boxer yet from the Eastern Bloc, a man with a traditional background, an Olympic veteran and top international amateur fighter. He is part of that rich history and he has embraced the American idea of entertainment, which is something other great fighters from his culture have failed to do. He is everything that most of the other Eastern Bloc fighters are not; Golovkin is mean, he can fight and he is great to watch. There is no safety-first with GGG.At any point in the 1950s when Papp, a brilliant southpaw, was winning world and European amateur titles, he would have probably been too slick for Golovkin over three rounds. However, I have no doubt that over 12 rounds Golovkin would win and win well. It has taken a long, long time but Golovkin is right now the best of the fighters that jumped over walls, jumped on planes and stood in America wide-eyed at the endless ambition they believed they possessed in their fists.This Saturday the mighty Kazak fights at the O2 in London in defence of his middleweight titles and it will be a pleasure to be ringside.

MADRID -- It could be a night of records at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Wednesday. Cheap Jordan Retro Shoes For Sale .In addition to trying to win their Champions League group, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund will also be looking to make history when they meet in their final Group F match.One draw and Madrid will equal the clubs longest unbeaten run of 34 games in all competitions. One goal and Dortmund will match the most goals ever scored in the tournaments group stage -- 20.On a personal level, Cristiano Ronaldo can become the first player to score 100 times in European competitions if he is able to score twice.Madrid is in position to equal the unbeaten record set under coach Leo Beenhakker in the late 1980s. It would then be five short of Barcelonas Spanish record of 39 consecutive games without a loss, set last year.Madrid hasnt been defeated since April at Wolfsburg in the quarterfinals of last seasons Champions League.Dortmund has a chance to become the fourth club to score 20 goals in the group stage. And if it scores two or more goals, it will surpass the mark set by Madrid in 2013-14, Barcelona in 2011-12 and Manchester United in 1998-99.Dortmund scored at least once in every group game so far, and it has a shot at the record thanks mostly to routs against Legia Warsaw -- 6-0 in Poland and 8-4 in Germany.Ronaldos 100th goal has eluded him for some time -- he hasnt scored in Champions League play since a 2-2 draw at Dortmund in September. Madrid scored 10 goals in the three matches since then, but none came from Ronaldo.The Portugal forward has averaged a goal per game in the Champions League while playing with Madrid, with 80 goals from as many matches. He has scored only two in this seasons group stage, his worst mark since joining the Spanish club.Heres a look at the groups playing on Wednesday:---GROUP EMonaco has secured first place and Bayer Leverkusen is guaranteed second, but Tottenham needs at least a draw against CSKA Moscow at Wembley Stadium to finish third and earn a spot in the Europa League.We havent won yet at Wembley, we want to finish with a win and give something back to the fans, Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen said.The English side routed Swansea 5-0 in the Premier League this weekend to rebound from two consecutive losses.Leverkusen will be without injured midfielder Kevin Kampl for the home match against Monaco.We would like to finish the group undefeated, which would be a first for us, Bayer coach Roger Schmidt said.---GROUP FMadrid hosts Dortmund trailing the German side by two points, so only a victory will secure first place in the group.But the defending champions arrive boosted by an eight-game winning streak at the Bernabeu in the European competition.Madrid has won 28 of their last 32 home matches in the tournament, with the only loss coming against Schalke in the 2014-15 season.Dortmund will be without Mario Goetze because of a minor injury.(Winning the group) would top off this outstanding opening round, Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said. It would be the icing on the cake.In the other match, Sporting Lisbon needs at least a draw at Legia Warsaw to secure third place and a spot in the Europa League.---GROUP GFC Porto has to beat Leicester to advance without depending on other results, but winning hasnt been easy for the Portuguese side recently.The last-minute victory over Sporting Braga in the Portuguese league on Saturday was the teams first since Nov. 2.Porto is second in the group, behind already qualified Leicester. It loses the head-to-head tiebreaker to FC Copenhagen on away goals, so if it fails to win and Copenhagen defeats Club Brugge -- which has yet to win a point -- the Portuguese side will be eliminated.---GROUP HLyon needs to beat Sevilla at home by a two-goal margin to advance and leave France with three teams in the last 16 for the first time. PSG and Monaco have already qualified.Few thought we would still be alive ahead of the last game, Lyon coach Bruno Genesio said. We now have a final to play and to win.Juventus has already advanced and a win against Dinamo Zagreb will secure first place.---Tales Azzoni on Twitter: http://twitter.com/tazzoni Cheap Jordan Retro 11 Sale .

The Clippers were angry about blowing a big lead; the Kings didnt like being in that kind of hole and nearly digging themselves out only to lose. http://www.jordanscheapchinawholesale.com/ .ca NHL Power Rankings for the second straight week, ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche. MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota coach Richard Pitino started this season with a rule many college coaches have used before -- no media interviews for freshmen.It didnt take long for Amir Coffey to force Pitino to change his mind.Coffey scored 30 points on just 14 shots to lead Minnesota to a 92-86 over St. Johns on Friday night.When you play like that, youve got to change that rule, Pitino said, later adding that it was as impressive a freshman performance as Ive seen.Dupree McBrayer had 18 points, five rebounds and five assists, and Nate Mason added 13 points, seven assists and five rebounds for the Golden Gophers (4-0), who only turned the ball over six times.Marcus LoVett scored 31 points on 11-for-27 shooting and Shamorie Ponds had 23 points and eight rebounds for St. Johns (2-1). The Red Storm led by 13 points midway through the first half, but shot just 37 percent to let the lead slip away.We didnt get the quality shots I would like, St. Johns coach Chris Mullin said after his team had just nine assists on 29 field goals. When you get down, guys start trying to do it themselves. I would like more ball movement with some high pick and rolls, which was working.Coffey made 9 of 14 shots and was 11 for 12 on free throws.Just trying to find myself. Its a new system, new offense, new teammates, said Coffey, the son of former Minnesota standout Richard Coffey and a star at Twin Cities prep power Hopkins. Just getting comfortable playing with these guys.St. Johns blitzed the Gophers out of the gates, leading 22-9 eight minutes into the game. But Coffey keyed the Gophers response, a 32-9 finish to the half that helped them take control.I thought we helped him a little bit. We got him going, Mullin said. But hes got nice length. Hes got a nice touch. He killed us.Bashir Ahmed added 15 points and 10 rebounds for St. Johns, which pulled within three points in the second half but couldnt get closer. Cheap Nike Air Jordan Retro 13. BIG PICTURESt. Johns: Its back to the drawing board after falling flat in its first real test of the season. The Red Storm cruised to victories in their first two games against Bethune-Cookman and Binghamton by a combined 63 points. It only gets tougher from here for a team that went 8-24 in Chris Mullins first season last year, including 1-17 in the Big East.Minnesota: The momentum continues for a program badly in need of it. After going a disastrous 2-16 in Big Ten play last year, the Gophers are struggling to put fans in the seats at once-raucous Williams Arena in Richard Pitinos fourth season. Those who did show up on Friday night saw an entertaining and fast-paced brand of basketball with local standout Coffey trying to inspire the masses to return to the Barn.LYNCHS BULKReggie Lynch grabbed 11 rebounds and blocked nine shots for Minnesota. Seven of those swats came in the first half as the Gophers climbed back into the game. Its been a long road back for Lynch, who sat out last season after transferring and endured a knee injury that kept him from playing for most of the summer.Hes a game-changer for us in the back of the defense, Pitino said.TOUCHING MOMENTAs the crowd stood for the Star Spangled Banner, the singers microphone appeared to malfunction. So she just kept right on singing and the entire crowd joined in.UP NEXTSt. Johns stays in the Big Ten with its next opponent, facing Michigan State on Wednesday in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament in the Bahamas. The Gophers host another opponent with name recognition when Arkansas comes to town on Tuesday.---More AP college basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.org ' ' '

Rory McIlroy continued his new-found form with the putter to open up a three-shot lead going in to the final round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Cheap Nike Air Max Free Shipping . Latest leaderboard WGC-Cadillac Championship McIlroy got off to a fast start at Trump National to overhaul midway pacesetter Adam Scott, setting up a Sunday shoot-out with defending champion Dustin Johnson by carding a bogey-free 68. Having made the switch earlier in the week to the crosshanded putting method he last used in 2008, McIlroy once again looked assured with the flat stick on his way to posting four birdies.  McIlroy is chasing a first victory of 2016 After needing 33 putts during his opening round 71, McIlroy took just 25 blows during a much-improved 65 on Friday and carried on where he left off with a bright start to his third round. The world No 3 opened with a four-foot gain at the first and moved in a share of the lead when Scott missed the fourth green and two-putted from 12 feet, before McIlroy took the outright advantage by holing the next from seven feet. Rory McIlroy runs us through his third round at the WGC-Cadillac Championship Despite going from bunker to bunker off the eighth tee, McIlroy was able to pitch to three feet and pick up another shot, as Scott saw his eagle putt brush the right edge of the cup.McIlroy kicked off his back nine by sinking a 15-foot putt to double his lead, as Scott failed to save par from eight feet at the 13th to extend the gap to three strokes. Scott lost his overnight advantage early in the third round Although Scott immediately reduced the deficit with a stunning approach from the bunker to 10 feet at the next, the Australian saw defending champion Johnson move alongside him with gains at 12 and 16.Johnson briefly claimed outright second when Scott underhit his pitch and run at the 17th and dropped a shot, but finished with a one-under  71 after two-putting the last from four feet. Johnson missed the chance to move in to a share of the lead early in the round As Scotts birdie chance at the last ran inches past of the cup, McIlroy continued his run of clutch par saves along the closing stretch to complete his blemish-free day.Danny Willett had made a move up the leaderboard with four gains in a six-hole stretch around the turn, only to bogey the 18th and leave him tied-fourth on seven under alongside Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson. Willett heads in to the final round five strokes off the pace I think its Rorys to lose, really, Willett said. Were going to have to go out there and play clever and play aggressive when we can, and hopefully we can knock a few birdies off and post a good number.Spanish duo Sergio Garcia and Rafael Cabrera-Bello had set the early clubhouse targets with matching 67s, as Rickie Fowler sits a further stroke back on four under despite running up a quadruple-bogey eight early in his round. Jason Day was in impressive form putting from 65 feet at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in Florida. Another up-and-down day for world No 1 Jordan Spieth saw him close a one-over 73, as PGA Champion Jason Day drained a 65-foot putt to save par at the last and card a third-round 71.Watch the final round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship live on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Reviews on the weather were mixed Sunday at the Miami Dolphins-Arizona Cardinals game.Every time we got the ball it seemed like it was pouring, like a monsoon, Cardinals receiver J.J. Nelson said. Ive never played in anything like that.Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry found the rain fun.When you think about football, you dream about this type of game, he said.Guess which team won.Frequent heavy showers made for a sloppy game, and the Cardinals were unable to overcome four turnovers in the first 20 minutes, losing 26-23 .Carson Palmer threw two interceptions and lost a fumble when he bobbled a snap . David Johnson also lost a fumble. A slick ball contributed to all four giveaways by a team accustomed to desert conditions, not monsoons.We practiced with a wet ball on Wednesday and didnt have any problems, Arizona coach Bruce Arians said. But when it continually pours when you have the ball, which was kind of odd, its tough.Palmer agreed the timing on the passing showers was weird.Every time we had the ball, it just started turning on and staying on, Palmer said. Then it would stop.Turnovers are a big reason the Cardinals (5-7-1) will likely sit out the playoffs. They have 26 turnovers this year, two more than in 2015, when they went 13--3. Wholesale China Jerseys. Road missteps have been a chronic problem too. Arizona is 1-5 away from home, including 0-4 in games in the Eastern time zone. Last season the Cardinals went 8-1 away from home.In Miami, turnovers were far from the only issue. Palmer threw for only 145 yards. Larry Fitzgerald had just 12 yards receiving. Johnson, who came into the game leading the NFL in touchdowns, was kept out of the end zone.Chander Catanzaro missed a field-goal attempt and two extra points, with one blocked PAT returned for a 2-point conversion by Walt Aikens , who didnt mind the weather a bit.What weather? Aikens said. Football weather. Perfect. Not so much for the offense, but for the defense. Reminds me of my childhood.The blocked kick and Aikens score with 7:05 left represented a three-point swing, which turned out to be the difference in the game.So it has gone in 2016 for the Cardinals.The ball, Palmer said, has not bounced our way once.---For more NFL coverage: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Steven Wine on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Steve-Wine.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. Cheap Ravens Jerseys . -- On Sunday night, the San Francisco 49ers feared that safety Eric Reid had suffered a torn biceps late in the teams loss to the New England Patriots.On Monday, those fears were confirmed. Reid did indeed suffer a torn biceps in his right arm, an injury that will require season-ending surgery with six games to go in the season.Reid acknowledged the injury on Twitter, joking that he didnt know whether he was more upset about not getting to play with his teammates anymore this season or not being able to curl in the weight room. He then said he was down but not out.Reid departed the teams locker room Sunday night with his right arm in a sling. He had an MRI revealing the injury on Monday afternoon.Reid tied for the team lead with seven tackles in Sundays 30-17 loss to the Patriots; he injured his arm on one of the games final plays.For the season, Reid had 62 tackles, 1 forced fumble and 1 interception. He has also joined quarterback Colin Kaepernick in kneeling during the national anthem before every game as a protest of racial inequality and oppression in the United States.Early Monday afternoon, Niners coach Chip Kelly didnt yet have an update on Reids status, but the team later confirmed the injury. Kelly did say second-year safety Jaquiski Tartt would likely be next up to replace Reid.The timetable for Reids return isnt yet known. He has one year remaining on his contract after the 49ers opted to use the fifth-year option on the former No. 18 pick in the 2013 NFL draft earlier this year.Reid is the Niners fourth defensive starter to suffer a season-ending injury, joining linebackers NaVorro Bowman and Ray-Ray Armstrong and defensive tackle Arik Armstead. Additionally, nose tackle Ian Williams suffered an ankle injury before training camp that ended his season before it began. Wholesale Ravens Jerseys .

Sebnem Kimyacioglu is a member of the Turkish national womens basketball team. Born in the United States, Kimyacioglu has dual citizenship. A shooting guard at Stanford in 2001-05, Kimyacioglu has played internationally for much of the past decade as well as earning her law degree from Santa Clara University.Kimyacioglu and her Turkish teammates open the 2016 Summer Olympics tournament on Saturday against France, the 2012 silver medalists. Kimyacioglu talks about her teams ups and downs related to the recent tragedies in Turkey following its qualification for Rio.***After I graduated from Stanford in 2005, I went overseas to play basketball in the Turkish and European leagues and I played there for three years before I hung up my sneakers and returned to the United States to go to law school. I graduated from Santa Clara School of Law, took the California bar exam and I really didnt think Id be playing basketball competitively again.But my Stanford teammate Kristen Newlin and her husband, who coaches basketball in Turkey, were visiting me and we were playing in a pickup game with my law school teammates and he asked me, Have you thought about playing again?He encouraged me to go to a club tryout in Turkey. Nobody believed I was in basketball shape -- I didnt believe I was in basketball shape -- but I figured I was going to make the most of the opportunity and trained my heart out while simultaneously studying for the bar exam. I made the Galatasaray roster. The previous year, basketball stars Diana Taurasi and Tina Charles were on this team. That year, it was Lindsay Whalen and Sylvia Fowles fresh off of a gold medal at the London Olympics. For me, it was exciting to maybe play on a team that would contend for a Euroleague title, and I didnt expect that I would get a minute of play.I carved out a role as the intangibles player on the team. I would do whatever was needed of me, be that cheering my butt off for 40 minutes or D-ing up the best wing player on the opposing team. My contributions were not going to be on the stat sheet, but I was also prepared to take big shots if that was required of me. That requirement came in the biggest game of my life up to that point, the 2014 Euroleague championship. I subbed into the game and hit a couple of critical 3s to seal the victory. I was dubbed the hero of the game by FIBA. For me, it was what dreams were made of.I played there again in 2015, but honestly, I thought that Id achieved all I could, and I was already researching jobs back in the States in sports law, doing some networking. Id worked for a couple of months at a firm in Santa Barbara in the offseason. It was building toward my career. With all of this going on, I got a job offer to play two months for a team in Northern Cyprus. It intrigued me because Northern Cyprus is a conflict zone. Its split in two -- Cypriot Greeks on one side and Cypriot Turks on the other. I had attended a Sports for Good camp there the previous summer where they brought the two sides together and I thought that was something I would want to be a part of because it dovetailed into the kind of work I wanted to do.Honestly, I had no idea that would lead to my being called up to be a part of the Turkish national team. My coach from my Euroleague championship team, who became the national team coach in May of that year, asked me what I thought about being on the Olympic hopeful roster.I just felt like the stars were aligning for me to keep playing for a little while longer. At that point, Id been in and out of the game for more than 10 years, Id left basketball twice, but I had this chance to be on the Turkish national team and I couldnt say no. And then we qualified for the Olympics on June 17 in France with a top-five finish, the second time Turkey has competed in the Olympics in womens basketball. The whole thing is unbelievable because if you had asked me how my life would pan out in this stretch 10 years ago, I could never have thought this up.June 28, 2016We were about to reconvene for our month-long pre-Olympic camp when the terrorist bombing took place at the airport in Istanbul. It deeply affected me. It felt very personal because that is someplace that I fly into and out of all the time.I never would consider it a place to avoid. These days you think about the attacks in popular places and think, Maybe I wont go there. Ill go someplace else instead. But an airport, you cant really avoid going there. And that made it really personal for me.I flew into Istanbul two days after the attack. The remnants of the attack were there as soon as I got off the plane. The ceiling tiles were gone in the terminal and crews were out doing repairs to the floors and the ceilings. As I was exiting the international baggage claim area, there were large areas tarped off where they were working.It was a very strange feeling to think about the fact that just two days before that, people were running for their lives in that same area.Our team has handled all of thiss pretty well. Cheap Baltimore Ravens Jerseys. Our manager and staff are pretty sensitive to that. We enter the airport through VIP areas as we travel. I know the hope is that we can just focus on basketball and the Olympic tournament. We appreciate these efforts, and I believe they have helped us. We are proud of having the hopes of a nation attached to us, but at the very least, we also want to make proud those whose efforts helped us get to this point.I was born in the United States, but I spent every summer in Turkey growing up. My parents live in Turkey. Im fluent in the language. Since I graduated from college, Ive lived in Turkey for a total of six years. I love it, and Im hopeful for it.July 15, 2016Wed been in training camp for the Olympics in Slovenia for the past 10 days, and we had only a couple of days left before we were going to return to Istanbul.I was on FaceTime with some family members in the hotel when I heard people running back and forth in the hallway. I went out into the hall and asked one of my teammates what was happening and she said, I dont know.I started to hear that people thought a military coup was happening in Turkey. I walked over to our treatment room, which is the place where players always convene. Its a big room, with four or five treatment tables and everyone was in there, sitting on the tables and on the floor with their iPads turned on, streaming live TV.At that point, all we could see was that people werent sure what was going on. The bridge in Istanbul was blocked. People were questioning whether this was a terrorist attack or something else. It was all just developing, and it was hard to figure out exactly what was happening. Our staff got a projection of live TV in our meeting room, and we all moved in there to watch as things unfolded.The room was eerily silent. People were quietly digesting, thinking about the things and the people that were important to them and what this could mean. I didnt want to freak out my family and friends, so I was texting them to let them know I was fine.My dad is in Turkey. My mother is in the States because my sister just had a baby.I was on the phone with my father and he was trying to comfort me, telling me everything was going to be fine. And I just kept thinking, I dont know about that.At one point, some of my teammates got up and went to the nearest ATMs to get some cash, because once we thought it might be a coup. We were afraid everything was going to shut down. We would find out later that a neighbor of one of my teammates was killed making his way home from work that night.From our hotel, we saw on state television, one woman was held hostage at the television station and read a note the coup was successful. I had a sinking feeling in my stomach.It was scary. We didnt know whether we were going to be able to go back to Turkey at that point, whether any of our future plans were going to be a reality, including the Olympics.July 16, 2016It was past midnight when we left the team meeting room in the hotel in Slovenia and went to bed. It was becoming clear that the coup wasnt going to be successful. There have been previous coups in Turkey and there had always been a contingent of citizens supporting the military and that wasnt the case here. All of Turkey stood up for democracy. People from opposing parties, with different ideologies, all rejected the attempt to intervene with Turkeys democratically elected government. It was an important moment in history for the nation.When we returned to Istanbul two days later, the city was back to its usual, bustling self. We saw people celebrating in the streets every night that democracy won out. We saw it in front of the airport, people waving flags. I think its a sign of how far Turkey has come and the strength of the democracy we have here.July 30, 2016We are about to leave for the Olympics. Despite the excitement I feel, it has been a trying time. I think we all feel a heightened sense of responsibility to show that we are representing Turkey, that we are still on our feet, still standing tall. Our success as a team will not only be a sign that Turkey is a democratic nation where people of many races, nationalities and religions live together, but I believe it will be a glimmer of hope for the people of Turkey.We are proud of our country. There are a lot of Turkish people who have been living through some dark days and losses recently. Turkish people have a lot of pride, and we want to make them proud of us.I believe the story of whats happening in Turkey is worth telling. I dont want this moment or the feeling I have in my gut to pass without speaking about it. After the Olympics, the moment will have passed. In the meantime, hopefully, we will bring smiles to the faces of the people who see us walking in the opening ceremonies and representing them in the pinnacle of competition for sport. ' ' '

LOUDON, N. Clearance Air Max Outlet .H. -- Matt Kenseth was always near the front of the pack. He stalked the leaders and waited for contenders to wilt.Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. faded down the stretch. So did Denny Hamlin.It almost seemed like a repeat scenario for Kenseth.Just like last fall on the same track when Kevin Harvicks lead evaporated when he ran out of fuel, Kenseth pounced. He pulled away down the stretch to win the Sprint Cup race Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.Truex and Busch each led more than 120 laps before faltering over the final 75 laps, paving the way for Kenseth to win for the second time this season.Kenseth also won the New Hampshire race last September. He has 38th career victories.Last fall, we squeaked one out, a little more fuel than Kevin and a little different strategy, but not quite as good a car, Kenseth said. Today, I felt like we had the best car.NASCAR said Kenseths No. 20 Toyota failed the post-race laser inspection station and will be brought to the research and development center in Concord, North Carolina, for more evaluation. The penalty for that kind of failure has traditionally been a 15-point penalty. But this was the first time a race winner was busted since the lasers were instituted in 2013.Tony Stewart finished second and strengthened his spot inside the top 30 in the points standings. Stewart has a win this season and needs to secure a spot in the top 30 in points to clinch a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. He inched from 30th to 28th in points.Joey Logano was third, followed by Harvick and Greg Biffle.Alex Bowman had a solid day ruined when he hit the wall late and finished 26th driving for Dale Earnhardt Jr. Earnhardt was sidelined because he suffered from symptoms of a concussion.Truex tumbled to 16th when his Toyota suffered a broken shifter and Busch dropped to eighth when he could never break free on late-race restarts.Were doing everything right, but were taking some on the chin here, Truex said.That allowed Kenseth, Buschs Joe Gibbs Racing teammate, to cruise to the top and snatch the lead with fellow JGR teammate Denny Hamlin with 30 laps He drove away on the final restart with 11 to go in the 301-mile race and soon the traditional lobster plopped on the hood of his Toyota.But this race could be the one remembered for truly solidifying Stewart in Chase contention. He snapped an 84-race losing streak last month at Sonoma and was fifth last week at Kentucky Speedway. Smoke is heating up this summer and could be racing for a fourth championship in his final NASCAR season.Everyone wants this last year to be good, Stewart said. Sonoma, I think really helped relax everybody.Kenseth became the first driver since Kurt Busch in 2004 to win consecutive starts at New Hampshire. He didnt win in his first 27 Cup starts at the track but has three wins in his last three races at the 1.058-mile track.It used to be one of my worst places and now I feel like its one of our better places, he said.Here are other items of note from Sundays race:---BOWMANS RUNBowman enjoyed perhaps the final race of his Sprint Cup career, running inside the top 10 and seemingly in position for his best finish in 72 starts.But Bowmans run in the No. 88 Chevrolet ended with a thud when a tire issue slammed his car into the wall and he finished 26th in his first Cup race of the season.Ive never got to actually race with guys like Jimmie Johnson, Tony Stewart, Kurt Busch, all those guys, he said. I had a lot of fun passing really good cars.With four-time champion Jeff Gordon set to take the wheel next week if Earnhardt isnt cleared, Bowman is out of options for the rest of the year.The result will not show what a great job (at)AlexBRacing and the (at)nationwide88 gang did this weekend. Proud of them guys, Earnhardt tweeted.Bowman had no top-10 finishes in 71 starts over the 2014-2015 seasons with BK Racing and Tommy Baldwin Racing.I dont think Ive gotten out of a Cup car with a smile on my face in a while, he said. Its just so much fun to be able to run up front like that. Ive spent two years of my career wondering if I can really do this at the Cup level and today I answered that for myself.-----UNHAPPY HARVICKHarvick was hardly happy over his top-five finish.He went on TV after the race and blasted his Stewart-Haas Racing No. 4 Chevrolet pit crew for continued poor stops that cost him a serious shot at the checkered flag.Im disgusted to tell you the truth. Its the same thing every week. We just make mistake after mistake and until we clean that up we dont have a chance to win races putting ourselves in a hole every time we make a mistake, Harvick said.He added, Its really going to have to come from the top. I mean, they are going to have to clamp down and there is no way we can win a championship like this unless they straighten some of this stuff out.Harvicks crew had problems with lug nuts and the air gun on two separate spots that sunk him from contention.We always do something wrong, he said.-----KEZS STREAKBrad Keselowski failed in his bid to win three races. He followed wins at Daytona International Speedway and Kentucky Speedway with a 15th-place finish on Sunday.-----JUNIOR UPDATETeam owner Rick Hendrick does not think the concussion symptoms that sidelined Earnhardt are career threatening. He hoped to have NASCARs most popular driver back in the car next week at the Brickyard.Four-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon will come out of retirement and drive the 88 next week at Indianapolis Motor Speedway if Earnhardt does not return. Hendrick says Gordon will likely remain in the car should Earnhardt need an extended absence.Earnhardt will have more tests early this week. Hendrick Motorsports will likely make a decision on Earnhardts availability on Wednesday.-----UP NEXTKyle Busch heads to the Brickyard as the defending winner at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. -- Stan Kroenke couldnt wait to get his NFL team out of St. Louis six months ago, in part because of what his teams relocation application deemed to be a struggling economy.He must not think the region is all bad: The billionaire is an investor in a proposed large-scale development along the Missouri River in St. Louis County.Kroenke and attorney Alan Bornstein control Howard Bend Development, one of six entities that submitted proposals this past week to develop some or most of 1,800 acres in Maryland Heights, Missouri. Details wont be released until later, but whichever project is chosen will likely include offices, stores, restaurants and condominiums. City officials expect to announce the winning project by early 2017.In a region where Kroenke is widely disliked, can bygones be bygones? Officials in Maryland Heights arent ruling him out.Somebody with a track record -- thats more important to us than who the developer is, city spokesman Craig Workman said.Kroenke certainly has a track record. The native Missourian has developed major projects throughout the nation. In the St. Louis area, he is behind Wentzville Crossing, Gravois Crossing and Chesterfield Commons, three mega-shopping areas.But that was before the acrimonious departure of the Rams, a huge blow to St. Louis pride and status. The teams 29-page application to move offered a scathing indictment of the region and its fan base. NFL owners in January agreed to allow the Rams to relocate to Los Angeles.The application was critical of St. Louis economic and population growth and cited two NFL-commissioned studies that said it lags, and will continue to lag, far behind in the economic drivers that are necessary for sustained success of an NFL franchise.The hurt remains. Many wonder why Kroenke and Bornstein would want to invest in a market they seemed to find so distasteful.Joe Brazil, a Republican councilman in St. Charles County, across the river from Maryland Heights, said development in the flood plain is bad enough. If Krroenke is involved, he said, that would make it worse. Nike Air Vapormax For Sale. Here youve got a guy who pretty much kicked us in the crotch once and now were letting him do it again, Brazil said I dont think anybody should be developing on that 1,800 acres. Nobody should. Its just bad planning.Kroenke and Bornstein did not return messages seeking comment.Workman said flood plain concerns are misguided. Construction of a new 500-year levee that followed the floods of 1993 and 1995 has made the land safe and primed for development, he said.While the plan with Kroenke and Bornstein hasnt been made public, it is known that they want funding help from taxpayers for a project.Bornstein told a city committee earlier this year that he already owned some of the land and was in discussion to buy more. But he told the committee that a public-private partnership would be necessary for a project, requiring significant tax incentives.Tax incentives such as tax increment financing are common, almost standard, for large-scale development projects in the St. Louis area. Maryland Heights has used TIF for other projects, too, though opponents say it is simply a tax break for the wealthy. Brazil called TIF funding white-collar welfare.Randy Karraker, host of the afternoon drive show on the sports talk radio station 101 ESPN, said listeners who call and text have been 100 percent against TIF money for Kroenke. Karraker noted that many St. Louis-area residents are already boycotting existing Kroenke developments.I have to believe that will follow them to Maryland Heights if they go there, he said.Workman said the time is right to find use for the land that will make Maryland Heights a more attractive place to live.We have lots of people who dont want us to do this for various reasons, he said. But we think that not only is the area going to generate an economic engine for the region, its ready for a development. ' ' '

BOSTON -- If Celtics fans had their way, and if their dreams had come true, Kevin Durant would be playing for Boston instead of the Golden State Warriors when the teams meet Friday night. Wholesale Andy Dalton Jersey .Last summer, when Durant was deciding where to spend the next years of his career, the Celtics put on a big push, bringing their players and Tom Brady to a meeting with Durant on Long Island, N.Y.However, Durant spurned the Celtics and also spurned his former team, leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Bay Area.It could make for an interesting reception by the TD Garden folks.What can they be mad about? Durant said Wednesday. I never played there, I never said I was going there. Theyre going to support their team.Its one of the best fan bases in the league. Top five, easily. So no matter who goes in there, theyre going to boo them. But I have no attachment to Boston at all.Buttering them up -- sort of -- may not keep the boos from raining down on Durant, but it will make for an interesting night.The Warriors lost just nine games in their record-setting regular season last year. One of those defeats was to the Celtics, in Oakland on April 1 -- and Boston was this close to being the only team in the NBA to beat Golden State twice.On Dec. 11, with TD Garden rocking, the Warriors rallied for a 124-119 double-overtime win against the Celtics, which gave Golden State a 24-0 record at the time. The Warriors record opening streak ended at Milwaukee in the next game, at the end of a seven-game road trip.The Warriors, who actually won their 28th straight regular-season game in Boston, trailed by five with 2:07 left in regulation, then played through a sloppy first overtime and then won the 58-minute game.We continue to fight. We believe in ourselves, Golden State forward Draymond Green said that night. We believe in each other and we trust each other. So, nothing new. The same old same old, which has made us who we are.They look a little different this season after failing to hold a 3-1 lead and losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers in last years NBA Finals. Durant arrived, and some key parts, such as Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut, left. However, coach Steve Kerrs team is 9-2 and hits Boston for the second game of a four-game road trip having already done something special.The Warriors have won five straight after a 127-121 victory at Toronto on Wednesday. They recorded at least 30 assists and shot 50 percent or better in all five games of their streak -- the first team since the 1990 Chicago Bulls to pull that off.And they meet a Celtics team that has been battling through the injuries suffered by Al Horford -- the big name brought in instead of Durant -- and Jae Crowder. The latter returned to practice Thursday, and both appear close. But having either of them for this game appears doubtful at best.After Durant went west, Crowder, in an interview with MassLive, said, That team is for sure the villain of the league. Every other NBA guy, friends of mine, are really disgusted from how the league is turning on that standpoint. Everybody is joining together. Everybody wants to go to Golden State or Cleveland.On Wednesday night, Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley, the guards who have to deal with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson on Friday, combined for 48 points, 17 rebounds and seven assists in Bostons win over the undermanned Dallas Mavericks -- Thomas putting on a one-man show down the stretch.The little big man, who has yet to score fewer than 23 points in a game this season, scored 22 in the fourth quarter, 20 in the final 6:01. Bradley had the other two Boston baskets in the run and also grabbed a career-high 13 rebounds in the win that lifted the Celtics to 6-5 on the season.The same night against the Raptors, Curry scored 35 points and dished out seven assists, while Durant went for 30 points, nine rebounds and six assists.Curry is averaging 33.6 points per game and Durant 25.4 during the five-game winning streak.

Mondays evening slate of NBA action offers up just five games. Nike Off White For Sale Cheap . Which players should you build around and which players should you fade? Our experts have the answers.Todays panel includes ESPN Fantasys Kyle Soppe, Joe Kaiser, plus DFS expert Renee Miller.Players to build aroundKyle Soppe -- Eric Bledsoe, Phoenix SunsBledsoe has had a tough week. So what? His DFS price has dropped a bit after he shot just 37.5 percent from the field (20 percent from 3-point range) over the last week, but he has a chance Monday in Minnesota to resume what was a solid campaign, as he faces the fourth-least efficient defense in the NBA. Even during the rough week, Bledsoe still averaged 18.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 5.7 assists. His playing time and usage are stable, so Id look for Bledsoe to offer nice value Monday in that third tier of point guards, much like he did three weeks ago against these very Timberwolves (23 points, 53.3 FG%, 2 3-pointers, 3 steals, 10 assists and 6 rebounds).Joe Kaiser -- Bradley Beal, Washington WizardsThe Pacers continue to give up huge games to shooting guards, and right now, Beal is in the middle of one of his hot streaks. He scored 41 points against the Clippers on Sunday and is averaging 25.2 PPG in his last 10. Still reasonably priced, Beal has a good chance to shoot his way past his salary value against Indiana.Renee Miller -- Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota TimberwolvesOver the past five games, no team has allowed more fantasy points to opposing centers than the Suns. in addition, all the Timberwolves should enjoy more shooting and rebounding opportunities against the much faster-paced Suns. While Towns doesnt need the benefit of a good matchup to make him a good DFS play, it certainly doesnt hurt. Hes double-doubled in nine of his past 10 games and scored more than 40 real points twice in that span. The floor/ceiling combination, along with a slate where you can find plenty of midrange value to slot in around him, makes Towns a perfect place to start your lineups.Players to fadeKyle Soppe -- Dwight Howard, Atlanta HawksIn contrast to Bledsoe, Howards stock has been on the rise of late with three straight games of at least 15 rebounds. Thats all fine and dandy, but Im not paying up for him in this spot. Howard has averaged just 10 points (on 48.7 percent shooting) and 8.6 rebounds over the last two seasons (five games) against the Thunder, and with OKC ranking as a top-five team in terms of rebounding rate, Im not sure that Howards ceiling is as high as you might assume. I also have my concerns about Howard on the defensive end, as Enes Kanter has the ability to draw fouls and Steven Adams is an effort guy who will battle for boards and not give Howard many opportunities to block his shot. The offensive usage rate is a concern and, this just in ... Howard is still not a good free throw shooter. Im going cheap at center and stacking Suns on Monday.Joe Kaiser -- Tobias Harris, Detroit PistonsHarris has to post right around 27-28 DFS points to reach his salary value on Monday, and thats a mark he hasnt hit in his last six games. Even on a small five-game slate, like the one we have on Monday, there are better mid-priced power forwards to go with, such as Gorgui Dieng and Markieff Morris.Renee Miller -- Emmanuel Mudiay, Denver NuggetsEven though the Dallas Mavericks are playing the second game of a back-to-back Monday, they have still been the stingiest team in fantasy points allowed to opposing point guards. Mudiay played well against them a week or so ago but has demonstrated some head-scratchingly bad stat lines in much better matchups this month too. The risk is not worth the small reward you might get for using Mudiay on Monday. Nike Off White Cheap . Malkin got tangled up with Detroits Luke Glendening early in the third period and his left skate took the brunt of collision with the boards behind Pittsburghs net. Nike Off White Wholesale .C. -- Kemba Walker and the Charlotte Bobcats got off to a fast start, and the Sacramento Kings were never quite able to catch up. http://www.cheapnikeoffwhite.com/ . Takahashi, who had a 10-point lead after the short program, received 268.31 points after the free skate to finish 15 points ahead of second-place Nobunari Oda. HOUSTON -- The Houston Astros placed Lance McCullers on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday because of a mild sprain in his right elbow.McCullers was pulled Tuesday night in a 2-1 loss to Toronto with two outs in the fifth with elbow discomfort.Houston manager A.J. Hinch said Wednesday night that McCullers wont do any throwing for at least two weeks.If we can get him feeling better, then we will start a throwing program, Hinch said. Coming off the field yesterday we knew that he was in some pain. The tests today revealed the sprain.McCullers is 6-5 with a 3.22 ERA and 106 strikeouts in 14 starts this season.We are 24 hours into this, so we dont have a ton of answers tthat we are going to have over the next couple weeks, Hinch said. Cheapest Nike Off White. . The diagnosis has been a sprain, and we will give him a couple weeks to cool down. He has some inflammation. The muscles around the elbow are pretty tight today because they were trying to protect his body. Thats what happens when guys throw like they do.Joe Musgrove, who struck out eight in 4 1/3 innings of relief Tuesday night, will start Sunday in McCullers place, Hinch said.
