Amid lusty boos from a modest crowd on a rainy, 46-degree night, Cano began his first game in the Bronx since joining Seattle this winter for $240 million with a wink -- at Yankees starter CC Sabathia (3-3).TORONTO -- Dion Phaneuf admits he made a mistake. The Toronto captain said Thursday he erred in not talking to reporters following the Maple Leafs 5-3 home loss Tuesday night to the St. Louis Blues. Phaneuf was widely criticized for blowing off the media following the clubs sixth straight loss that dropped it to 10th in the Eastern Conference standings. "I shouldve been available, thats about all Im going to say about it," the veteran defenceman said following Thursdays practice. "I cant remember the last time I didnt make myself available but I shouldve been available." On Wednesday, a day off for the Leafs, Phaneuf told a Toronto all-sports radio station he didnt talk because he was too emotional following the loss. "I just didnt play well enough," he said. "Bottom line, I wasnt even close to the level I have to play at. "I accept responsibility for that. I will be better." Phaneuf and his teammates dont have time to fret about their respective situations. Toronto visits the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night in one of just eight regular-season games remaining for the Leafs. The contest is important for both teams. Philadelphia (38-37-7, 83 points) is sixth in the Eastern Conference heading into action Thursday night. Toronto (36-30-8, 80 points) is tied in points with Columbus, Detroit and Washington, but all three clubs having games in hand on the Leafs. With each mounting loss, the Leafs find themselves increasingly under the media microscope in Toronto. There was no shortage of TV cameras and media at Thursdays practice. "If you look back two weeks ago we werent having to answer these questions, but the reality is were where were at right now," Phaneuf said. "We havent won in six games and when you dont win hockey games there are questions asked and theres every right to ask those questions because its our job to win games. "Im not going to stand here and say weve played well, we havent. I know right now it seems were at a low point but well come through it." And for head coach Randy Carlyle, the turnaround wont come about by continually harping on how tight the Leafs have played during the streak. "The more you talk about it, the more you focus on the tightness the harder it is to flush," he said. "We have to be prepared to look at the positives that are in the hockey game, the things weve done well and not focus on the negatives. "Pressure comes from within, comes from outside, it comes from everywhere. I think the amount of pressure you put on yourself to perform is really and truly who you have to answer to." But Carlyle didnt sugar-coat Torontos current situation, either. "We feel theres a lot of areas in which there are some positives but you cant look past weve lost six in a row," he said. "Bottom line, theres no other way to say it. "We cant feel good about ourselves but we have to prepare ourselves to play the best game of the year (Fridday). Cheap Jerseys China. " Toronto could have defenceman Paul Ranger back Friday. Ranger left a 5-3 home loss to Tampa Bay on March 19 on a stretcher with a neck brace after being hit by Lightning forward Alex Killorn. "I feel pretty good but Ive got to talk to the trainers and doctors and see if they can clear me to play," Ranger said. "I think its just a combined decision (Friday). "If I can help in any way Im going to and I plan on it. I had some encouraging words from teammates and trainers saying, We could use you back. It felt pretty good. Im excited to get back into a game and contribute as much as I can." Carlyle would consider playing Ranger in Philadelphia if the defenceman was cleared medically. "He looked good (Thursday)," Carlyle said. "As soon as the player tells us, then we have an option." Toronto has been plagued by poor starts over its losing streak, something Carlyle says gives the opposition an advantage. "It seems like were chasing the game and when you chase the game you have to open up and that gives the team youre playing against more opportunities," he said. "Its tough enough when youre on an even keel . . . especially at this time of year. "The bottom line is we have to find a way to start better and continue it." Forward Phil Kessel agreed. "It helps to get the first goal," he said. "Youre up one instead of being down one or down two. "Its tough to come back in this league." Given the intense media glare in Toronto, forward Nazem Kadri said its hard for the Leafs not to feel pressure to win. "When you drop six straight its definitely hard to focus on other things," he said. "Weve had some meetings and understand this is desperation time. "We have to play for our lives so we have to go start acting like it." Defenceman Cody Franson said the Leafs psyche remains solid. "I think were in a good spot," he said. "Obviously weve been through a tough stretch here but . . . were very aware of our situation and we all want to do the right things to get this back on the right foot. "Were aware of what we have to do. We dont feel sorry for ourselves, weve played well in a lot of games and done a lot of good things and were going to build on that." Toronto returns to the Air Canada Centre on Saturday versus Detroit, the first of four straight home games. After facing Calgary (Tuesday), Boston (Thursday) and Winnipeg (April 5), the Leafs will end the regular season with road games against Tampa, Florida and Ottawa. "Its not like were out of a playoff position," defenceman Jake Gardiner said. "Were in a decent spot, we can still compete for those last two spots and just see what happens. "Yeah, theres always that pressure . . . but we know we have a good team in here and we know we can do it. Its just a matter of playing the way we know we can." cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
CHESTER, Pa. Deron Williams Mavericks Jersey . -- Toronto FC couldnt replicate last weeks dominating four-goal performance. Instead, the team conceded a stoppage time goal in Saturday nights 1-0 loss to playoff hopefuls Philadelphia Union. It was a familiar story for Ryan Nelsens team, which defended well and created scoring chances throughout the full 90 minutes. But the late goal, scored on a Kleberson free kick, sent Toronto home empty handed, even with the Reds playing with a man advantage for the final 15 minutes of the game. "The chances that we got were obviously very key ones," Nelsen said. "We just didnt take them, and thats football. Thats the thing about this game, generally it comes back to haunt you." Toronto was awarded the advantage after Union winger Fabinho was shown a straight red card in the 77th minute. The Brazilian was judged to have stomped on the back of Alvaro Rey after the pair became tangled up going for a ball near the far touchline. Just three minutes later, second-half substitute Robert Earnshaw had Torontos best scoring chance of the evening. Firing a freekick from 22 yards, the Welshmans strike hit the underside of the crossbar and ricocheted down, but did not cross the goal line. Philadelphia was able to clear the box with frantic defending. "I caught it so sweet," Earnshaw said. "If I caught it right, and if I hit the ball right, I thought it was going in. I got great contact on it. As soon as I saw it go over the wall, I was away. I was actually going to celebrate because I thought it was going to dip under the bar. Unfortunately it just hit the underside of the bar and came out instead of going in." Toronto had another chance at a game-winning goal in the 91st minute, when a Union corner kick turned into a counterattack opportunity. Earnshaw and Rey sprung a two-on-one, but Reys shot was smothered by Zac MacMath after the Spaniard elected to cut inside and try an effort from 18 yards. "We actually capitalized on the possession and we got some good second balls and created some situations in our favour and went through on goal," Earnshaw said. "We should have done better, really. There were a couple of times where our final pass didnt really make the chance clean through, but weve got to capitalize on that. "We had, I thought, three times where we had the opportunity to really go through on goal and get the tap-in. We didnt capitalize on that." Philadelphia found the games only goal with just seconds left to play. A foul from Doneil Henry set up the Union from just 25 yards out and the sparingly-used Kleberson curled the resulting free kick past goalkeeper Joe Bendik. "It was a lovely free kick," said Nelsen. "Set pieces, and pieces of skill like that happen in life. Our free kick hits the underside of the bar and hits the line and goes out. It could have easily gone in." Toronto falls to 5-16-11 on the season, including a 2-11-3 road record. With two games left to play, Nelsens team is locked into a 9th place Eastern Conference finish and can only focus on next season. "Weve got to see a lot more character, especially if theres games like this," said midfielder Jonathan Osorio. "The next game in Chicago will be the same thing, same atmosphere. Theyre playing for a playoff spot too. "We have to show a little bit more character in our team and I think were just building to next year."

Donovan was congratulated by teammates before he left the field, handed the captains armband to Altidore and then exchanged a brief handshake and hug with Jurgen Klinsmann, the coach who controversially cut him from the roster in May and denied Donovan what would have been a fourth World Cup trip.While Donovan and Klinsmann have had a strained relationship since the May 22 decision to leave the 32-year-old Los Angeles Galaxy forward off the World Cup roster, U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati persuaded Donovan to put aside his anger and return for the testimonial. Donovans 157th international appearance left him second among American men, behind only Cobi Jones 164.Before the kickoff, Gulati presented Donovan with a collage of 19 U.S. jerseys from his career, framed with redwood, the state tree of Donovans native California.

Sunrise, FL (SportsNetwork. Allan Houston Knicks Jersey .com) - Nick Holden scored the go-ahead goal at 11:03 of the third period, and the Colorado Avalanche went on to post a 4-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Thursday night. Holden fired a point shot that deflected in off the stick of Panthers forward Scottie Upshall with one second left on a power play. Jarome Iginla added an empty-netter with 27 seconds remaining. The goal was the 573rd of Iginlas career, moving him into a tie with Mike Bossy for 20th all-time in NHL history. Semyon Varlamov made 30 saves for the Avalanche, who picked up their first win on a five-game road trip that began with one-goal losses to Washington and Carolina. It was an important one for our confidence. I thought our guys did a good job, said Colorado coach Patrick Roy. We were okay in the first, but I thought we played better in the second and third. Roberto Luongo stopped 25-of-28 shots for Florida, which opened a five-game homestand following a 4-2-0 road trip. I thought we worked hard, and we played good. I thought we were as good a team as they were, if not a little bit better, said Panthers coach Gerard Gallant. Disappointed to see that power-play goal happen late in the game. There was a lot of pressure by the Panthers to begin the game, but a breakdown in their own zone resulted in a goal for the Avalanche. Defenseman Tyson Barrie skated in freely from the right point with the puck and ripped a shot past Luongo at the 2:11 mark of the first period. Rookie defenseman Aaron Ekblad tied it three minutes later at the end of a 5- on-3 power play. The No. 1 pick in the 2014 draft snapped a shot from the high slot through traffic and behind Varlamov at 5:15. Floridas power play had been struggling of late, going 0-for-13 in the past five games. The Avalanche grabbed a 2-1 lead when Gabriel Landeskog made a strong move out from behind the net with the puck and slipped it under Luongos right pad at 13:02 of the second period. Colorados second lead lasted only 23 seconds. Aleksander Barkov went to the front of the net and tapped in Brad Boyes feed from the right wing for the tying goal.

Uruguays soccer federation said it planned to appeal the ban, which prohibits striker Luis Suarez from all soccer activities for four months. The ban also covers Uruguays next nine international games, which rules him out of next years Copa America.When the teams were announced, the pre-match chatter was all about the Brazilians. No Oscar for Chelsea. Left on the bench. Willian to play his role centrally. No Fernandinho for Manchester City. Out injured. David Luiz back for Chelsea. In central midfield. And then there was the other Samba Boy. Mr Reliable, Ramires, an automatic name in the starting XI but whose position and role was far from automatic. Less than two hours after kick-off, Chelsea had done it. They had become the first team in 62 attempts to stop Manchester City scoring at home in the Premier League. However, this was no dour 0-0, like they ‘accomplished at Manchester United and Arsenal this season. Yes, another clean sheet at a Premier League giant had been secured but this time theyd won; Branislav Ivanovic scoring the games only goal in the 32nd minute. It was fitting that the game was decided by a goal on Chelseas right side. Fitting also that had come from a counter-attack. A wonderfully stretched game, particularly in the first half, saw both teams crave and find space and when Ivanovic powered home the goal, just 34 seconds earlier, Jesus Navas was dancing in the other penalty area trying to ignite another City chance. In between, arguably the games best player, Eden Hazard had glided from one flank to the other to pin City deep; Ramires had sprinted from deep to have a shot blocked; the exact block that rebounded out to the Serbian defender to blast home. Five minutes earlier, the Chelsea counter-attackers had had an even better chance, once again starting deep in their own end, where Ramires faced Navas one-on-one in the box. Seconds later, Alvaro Negredo gave the ball away and Willian started a four-on-one attack that finished with Ramires (once again) sticking his jetpack on and sprinting into the box to hit a shot wonderfully saved by Joe Hart. Willian had made the wrong decision, an all too familiar story for the Chelsea counter-attackers, and instead should have played in Samuel Etoo, but, much like at Arsenal in December, the wrong decision was made at a key time and they let their opponents off the hook. Just think what this team could achieve when they do make the right decisions and do have a legitimate force as a striker who they wont think twice about before passing? It was a night of combinations for Chelsea. Nemanja Matic making his first league start since his move from Benfica, was outstanding alongside David Luiz as the pivots in midfield. Gary Cahill and John Terry made England fans wonder if the Chelsea skipper just might come out of international retirement for a trip to Brazil. Willian and Hazard were electrifying on the ball and much improved without it. It was the kind of night that elevated the Belgian to another level. Earlier this season, Jose Mourinho said it best of Hazard: “The quality we know, his talent we all know, but his ambition, the way he looks at a match, sometimes it is a little up and down, sometimes he waits for the game to give him conditions to succeed.” On a rainy night in Manchester, Hazard waited for nothing. It waas his night to shine. Willis Reed Knicks Jersey. Many have been too quick to elevate him to world class status but consistent performances in this manner will take him there soon enough. A football field containing other geniuses such as David Silva and Yaya Toure, became the garden of Eden when the world was watching. And that is why Chelseas victory was worth much more than three points. It is easy to forget Hazard is only 23 and has played very few big games in his career. This is a team that is much different to the one that won the Champions League in 2012 and, even, the Europa League last May. It is a team that Mourinho is building to become winners but to do that they must learn how to win together. This is the biggest win their attacking unit has accomplished. Only Luiz, Gary Cahill and Petr Cech beat Bayern Munich to be crowned European champions while that trio were joined by Cesar Azpilicueta and Ramires in the win over Benfica in Amsterdam. That night Ramires played on the right side of midfield, just as he did on Monday against City. So often used in central midfield, the 26-year-olds versatility was once again leaned on by his manager and he rewarded him with a performance at the highest level. Putting the Brazilian on the right didnt completely stop the enormous threat City pose with overlaps down the flanks but it certainly prevented them from trying it often. Citys 4-4-2 is more a 4-2-2-2 with Silva and Navas playing a little more central, allowing full backs to go beyond them. It has been a shape that has destroyed teams this season. Not Chelsea. The positioning of Ramires meant Ivanovic, more than comfortable as a centre back, often came narrower because he had the Brazilian to play right back without the ball. In attack, the pair could combine well also. Ivanovic rarely gets forward under Mourinho but with Ramires alongside him, he was able to do so, which paid off on the goal. Higher up the pitch, Ramires also slotted in central positions to make up a three in midfield and help prevent City playing through the middle while causing transitions, he often got on the end of. It was the kind of performance few will talk of. The stats show little of what he did, Hazard will rightly get the attention and Mourinho will dominate the headlines but without the football intelligence and incredible engine that Ramires provided, Chelsea could just have been another team carved open by a ruthless Manchester City. “We have six players for these positions. The three players behind the striker give me chances, as a manager, to change from match-to-match, depending on the opponent, the game plan. It is based on these three players how we create our football,” said Mourinho back in August. Back then it was about picking between Oscar, Juan Mata, Hazard, Willian, Kevin De Bruyne and Andre Schurrle. Ramires once again was not on anyones radar for those positions. For a player who is so typically non-Brazilian the low profile suits him but once again in another big game it was just too difficult to let him go unnoticed. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
DENVER - Unless the nose-diving Denver Nuggets can turn things around, theyll miss the playoff for the first time since 2003, when they got Carmelo Anthony after a 17-65 season. Nike Air Max Thea Dames Goedkoop . Things have gotten so bad that the Nuggets had to resort to seldom-used reserve Jordan Hamilton running the point during a recent 39-point drubbing at Indiana. Ty Lawson (rib), Nate Robinson (torn ACL) and even Randy Foye (banged knee) were all hurt, and Andre Miller hasnt been around the team since getting into a shouting match with first-year coach Brian Shaw on New Years Day. The Nuggets skidded into the All-Star break on a four-game losing streak, their 10-year playoff streak in serious jeopardy as they stand in 11th place in the Western Conference at 24-27, six games out of the eighth spot. While Lawson is expected back soon, Danilo Gallinari wont be coming to the rescue. The Italian sharpshooter who joined the Nuggets in the blockbuster trade that sent Anthony to New York a few years back, had a major setback in his recovery from a torn left ACL and recently required a second surgery that will sideline him until next season. He blew out his left knee last April and his absence played a big role in another first-round playoff exit after a franchise-best 57-win regular season and the subsequent departure of long-time coach George Karl, part of an exodus that included Andre Iguodala and general manager Masai Ujiri, who was replaced by Tim Connelly. Shaws first season as an NBA head coach has been trying, as evidenced by his spat with Miller, who was initially suspended two games, a punishment that was revoked so he could continue to get paid but which failed to lead to a quick resolution. Throw in the injuries and Shaws had to juggle his depleted lineup. "Ive probably gotten 10 years of experience in this first half of the season," Shaw said. "... In a way, I like to kind of go through everything. Theres a lot worse situations; were just continuing to try to work through it. A lot of guys that wouldnt be getting opportunities are getting to play now because of the injuries. So its allowing us to evaluate what we really have and discover who can get it done and who cant. "Im learning as I go. Im learning our team as we go. Im not going to make any excuses; it was the hand we were dealt and we just have to continue to work." Its not just a matter of being short-handed, however. "We havent always just taken pride and gotten mad when our man is scoring. We worry more about how many shots were getting and things that are happening on the offensive end, and I want us to have that same kind of excitement about whats going on on the defensive end," he said. Lawsons return to the floor will go a long way in curing some of these ills. "If I was Tys agent Id be smiling and feeling really good right now," Shaw said, "because it just shows how important he is to our team — not only the speed of our team and the ability to help us score, but just organizing things and giving the other guys confidence that they lack with him not being out there." Miller figures to be gone by Thursdays trade deadline as there are plenty of contenders who could use a veteran point guard with a friendly contract, but the only leverage the Nuggets might gain would presumably be if multiple teams come calling. Unless they reverse their recent slide, the Nuggets will be playing out the string for the first time in more than a decade. J.J. Hickson said that turnaround starts on the defensive end. "Offense is not the problem. We know we can score with whomever, even with Ty out," Hickson said. "Thats a big loss for us, but were the type of team that likes to get up and down, so we know that teams cant keep up with us and we like to put pressure on teams. But it all starts with defence. If you look at the top teams in the league, all of them are top five or top ten in defence, and thats not us right now." AP Sports Writer Dave Campbell contributed. Air Max Tailwind 8 .

Nike Air Max Thea Zwart Sale . PAUL, Minn.MONTREAL -- Racing fans can expect the annual revving of high-speed engines at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve for at least another decade, as the Formula One Group reached an agreement worth more than $200 million to bring the Canadian Grand Prix back to Montreal through 2024. The Grand Prixs future in Montreal was secured with the help of substantial governmental investment: $62 million from the federal government, $50 million from Quebec, $62 million from Tourisme Montreal and at least $32 million from the City of Montreal. Montreal mayor Denis Coderre was on hand at the racetrack on Ile Sainte-Helene for the announcement on Saturday morning, alongside ministers of infrastructure and transport from the provincial and federal governments. "This is the place to be this weekend, and this is the place to be for the next 10 years," said Coderre, who worked on the deal for several months with Formula One. "The Canadian Grand Prix is part and parcel of Montreal. It is one of the big international events that builds on Montreals outstanding reputation and ranks it among the worlds great cities." As a condition to the agreements success, the City of Montreal also agreed to renovate the track, including making improvements to the team paddocks, the control tower, and the on-site medical centre, for which it will spend $25 million to $40 million. Coderre promised work would begin this fall and would be completed in time for the 2017 Canadian Grand Prix. "The importance of this showcase to Montreal is beyond measure," said the mayor. "If Montreal wants to present itself as a metropolis, and join the ranks of other great cities around the world, we have to maintain this high level of authority. Its our signature. Its part of our DNA. It is one of the big international events that builds on Montreals outstanding reputation." The deal is big. Montreals Formula One weekend attracts visitors from around the world, and repeatedly rakes in roughly $70 million to $90 million a year. It is broadcast in 150 countries and watched by approximately 300 million viewers worldwide. And its not just great for the City of Montreal, says former-F1 champiion Jacques Villeneuve. Nike Air Max 2016 Goedkoop. . Beyond the dollars and cents, Villeneuve believes the track named after his father is simply one of the most exciting in the world from a racing standpoint. "Its great for the teams and the drivers because its a fun track," he said on Friday in anticipation of the announcement. "Its a good venue. Everybody likes coming here. They come in a few days early. Its party time all week. Theres good energy." Villeneuve ranked Montreal as one of the top-four racing destinations, together with Monaco, Melbourne, and Singapore. "Its one of the few races that look different, where theres action," he said. "If you look at the modern tracks, you could be anywhere. They all look the same. And you fall asleep on your couch. Its one of those few that you need to keep on the calendar to keep Formula One special." Circuit Gilles Villeneuve -- all 4.3 kilometres of it -- is known for its sharp hairpin turn after the pit area, early safety cars, its tight Senna curves, and the kilometre-long straightaway along the Olympic basin that allows for speeds up to 300 kilometres per hour. Red Bulls Sebastian Vettel, who finished third behind Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg in Saturdays qualifying session, says Montreal is one of his favourite races of the year. "Its one of the few places in the calendar where the whole city really parties all weekend long and embraces the Grand Prix and really appreciates it," he said. "For us, thats a great feeling, to stand on the grid and have so many fans during the drivers parade and when you race. Seeing the full grandstands makes your job extra special." "Its a great track, the fans are fantastic, so enthusiastic," added Rosberg. "Im very happy and Im sure everybody else is that well be coming here more often in the future." Notes: This year marks the 35th running of the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal. The race gets underway Sunday afternoon. a In 2009, Montreal was removed from the F1 season when the provincial government refused to pay more to renew the race. The event returned the following year. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '

Cheap NFL Jerseys . MLB.coms San Diego correspondent Corey Brock is reporting that starting pitcher Josh Johnson is out for at least a month to five weeks with flexor strain in his right forearm. NICE, France -- An uncharacteristic fall may have cost Canadas Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford a spot near the top at the world figure skating championships. Radford landed on his backside on the pairs side-by-side triple Lutzes in an otherwise clean performance, leaving the Canadians in fifth place after Wednesdays short program. "When we see that score, if we landed our jump we could have been first after the short program at worlds," Duhamel said. "But maybe that would mean the long (program) wouldnt have gone so well, so this is going to fuel us a lot. "We wanted to be top-five and thats where we planned to end this competition." Canadians Jessica Dube and Sebastien Wolfe are 12th. Canadas Olympic ice dance champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir will begin their quest to reclaim their world title with the short dance later Wednesday. Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy of Germany looked poised to claim their fourth world pairs title in five years, winning the short program with their skate to music from the movie "Angels and Demons." Savchenko, dressed in white, and Szolkowy in black scored 69.82 points. Two-time world champions Pang Qing and Tong Jian of China are second after scoring 67.10. Narumi Takahashi and Mervin Tran -- a Canadian who competes for Japan -- are third with 65.37. Duhamel, from Lively, Ont., and Radford, from Balmertown, Ont., scored 63.69 for their tango to the classical guitar piece "Concierto de Aranjuez." Radfords fall came on their opening element, but the Canadians, seventh at last years world championships, recovered nicely to record their best score of the season. The two, who were the only skaters with triple Lutzes in their short program, joked that they would spend their off-day Thursday practising that jump. "I dont want to miss it again. Thats the first one I missed all week," Radford said. "If he ever misses something, anything, its always a complete shock to me beside him... for a second, I was like, Woah, thats weird. I never see him miss things." Dube, from St-Cyrille-de-Wendover, Que., and Wolfe, from Terrebonne, Que., who are making their world debut as a team, scored 55.83 with a shaky performance. Dube two-footed her landing on their throw triple Lutz, and their triple twist lift was messy. Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping. "I guess the program in general we didnt have as much intensity, we didnt let it all out, which I wasnt really happy about myself," said Dube, a world bronze medallist with former partner Bryce Davison. Davison was forced to retire early last season with a career-ending knee injury. Tran, a Regina native, is a three-time Japanese pairs champion with Takahashi. Theyve skated together since 2007 and train in Quebec. Tran, the son of Vietnamese and Cambodian refugees, has no familial ties to Japan, but skating for another country is not uncommon in the sport. In pairs and ice dance, only one skater needs to be a citizen of the country the team is representing. Kaitlyn Weaver, for example, whos half of a Canadian ice dance duo with Andrew Poje, is from the U.S. The one exception is the Olympics, where both skaters must be citizens of the country they represent, meaning Tran wont be able compete at the 2014 Sochi Games for Japan unless he becomes a Japanese citizen. The two were favourites with the crowd at the Palais des Expositions, drawing huge cheers for their skate to John Lennons "Imagine." "I felt so good, the atmosphere here is wonderful, the crowd is excellent," Tran said. "I am really happy." Savchenko and Szolkowy, meanwhile, who have three world titles plus a silver and a bronze, return to the top after missing the European championships. "We are just so happy to be back on the ice after my injury, its been quite some time," said Savchenko, who skipped the European event after aggravating a thigh injury. "The program was OK, it wasnt perfect, but it was good for our first competition since the Grand Prix Final (December in Quebec City)." Russias top teams, favoured to finish in the medals, struggled mightily. Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov, silver medallists last year, finished eighth after Trankov fell during their death spiral. The Russian skater complained afterward about the ice being too soft. Yuko Kavaguti and Alexander Smirnov, two-time world bronze medallists, finished way down in 11th after an error-filled program that included a fall by both skaters on a lift. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '

BOSTON -- When shots werent falling for Atlanta during a woeful start to the second quarter, the Hawks started going inside to Paul Millsap and never stopped. Millsap had season highs with 34 points and 15 rebounds as the Hawks rallied from an 18-point deficit for a 92-91 win over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday afternoon. Jeff Teague scored 16 points and Kyle Korver added 14 for Atlanta. "At the beginning of the game it wasnt really what they were doing. Its what we didnt do. We didnt execute well. We didnt share the basketball like we normally do," said Millsap, who had his best game for the Hawks since signing as a free agent in the off-season. "When we settled down, got stops and moved the basketball around, everybody got in a groove." The Hawks barely made one third of their shots, going 33 for 91, but Millsap was nearly unstoppable inside. He was 12 for 14 from the field and forced his way to the foul line, where he made 10 of 14 free throws. "We were able to find a way to win a game where we werent able to shoot well from the perimeter, from the basket, really from anywhere except for Paul Millsap," Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer said. Boston pulled away on a 19-4 run to start the second quarter, but Atlanta closed the period on a 15-0 run and set up a back-and-forth finish. "We started off the game so terribly. We just couldnt find any kind of rhythm and they had us totally out of synch," said Korver, who extended his NBA record streak of games with a 3-pointer to 101. "We were dead in the water there for a little while. We just felt like we couldnt get anything going. We got a little momentum and were able to carry that over to the second half." Boston had two shots to win after Shelvin Mack missed a layup in the final minute, but couldnt convert. Jordan Crawford missed with about eight seconds remaining and Boston ended up with the rebound and called time out. Crawford tried again at the buzzer but his shot bounced off the backboard. "I fellt like it was a good opportunity. Clinton Portis Redskins Jersey. Jordan lives for that," Boston coach Brad Stevens said. "I think hell probably beat himself up over it, but thats OK. We play again on Thursday." Kelly Olynyk scored a career-high 21 points and Kris Humphries had 18 points and 10 rebounds as Bostons reserves scored 56 -- more than half of the teams total. None of Bostons starters scored in double figures. Brandon Bass was closest with nine points and Jared Sullinger pulled down 10 rebounds. The lead went back-and-forth down the stretch until Atlanta clinched it in the final minutes. After Millsap put the Hawks up 90-89, Crawford answered with a long jumper that beat the shot clock and put Boston back up 91-90 with 1:36 left. It was the last field goal of the game. Teague drew a foul with 1:30 left and made both shots and the Hawks held on for the win. The Celtics led 23-20 after the first and opened second on a 19-4 run for a 42-24 lead. Atlanta responded by scoring the last 15 points of the period and then opened the third quarter with a 10-4 run and took a 54-48 lead on a layup by Teague. Olynyk started Boston on a 9-0 run with a 3-pointer, then Crawford converted a three-point play and added a 3-pointer to put the Celtics up 57-54. Korvers streak appeared to be in jeopardy through the third period after he missed his first five attempts from beyond-the-arc. His sixth was good, though, and he drew a foul for a four-point play that pulled the Hawks within 83-76 with 6:10 remaining. "The whole section up there was reminding me I hadnt hit one," Korver said. "I was trying to make shots to make shots, not just to keep the streak going." Notes: The Hawks streak of nine straight games scoring more than 100 points ended. ... Atlanta centre Al Horford was scheduled for surgery Tuesday to repair his torn right pectoral muscle. The Hawks announced Monday that Horford, the Hawks leading scorer and rebounder, was out for the season. ...

e http://www.cheapeveningdressuk.com/long-mothers-dresses-17-1.html , I travelled from the Galilee down to Jerusalem, stopping to hike, tour and convene with locals along the way.The Birthright program is derided by some as a Zionist-indoctrination scheme, though I believe the air of the tour depends largely on the organization through which you experience the program.Canadian Israel Experience, through which I travelled to Israel, is reputed to be among the least assertive in this regard, and indeed, my trip leaders actually encouraged us to observe and discuss the less venerable qualities of Israeli culture and political action.That said, the intention of the trip is certainly not to turn participants off of Israel.People of my generation living in Israel grew up with midnight door-knocks and military raids or the threat of suicide bombings, depending on where they lived.Before the erection of the West Bank barrier, which started during the height of the Second Intifada, Israeli society was subject to the constant threat of suicide bombs on buses, in malls, supermarkets or on the streets.At its peak in 2002, when Israelis my age would have been in their early teens, 452 people were killed in suicide attacks, according to the Israel Security Agency.forced to yield to spontaneous midnight visits from Israel Defense Force soldiers at their front doors.This generation, now grown, is struggling both with the very grave concerns of national land claims, military service (or resistance thereof) and traumatic childhood memories, along with figuring out how they can move out of their parents home in Israel s exorbitantly expensive housing market and how to decide what to study in university (I speak mostly of the Israeli experience, obviously).Indeed, it s a funny thing to have a conversation with a uniformed Artillery Corps soldier about her weekend plans http://www.cheapeveningdressuk.com/short-mothers-dresses-18-1.html , and to see a picture on her Samsung smartphone of the emblazoned dress she plans to wear to her cousin s wedding.than when I sat down with a 22-year-old Air Force Intelligence officer who was travelling with our group, who casually told me about coming out to the other soldiers in his unit.told me about the relative acceptance he had experienced as a gay man from his country, his religion and his army.When I told my unit, that night I went to the showers by myself because I didn t want the guys to feel uncomfortable, he said.Later, they asked where I was and I told them I went to shower by myself.They said, Why would you do that?To them, it wasn t a big deal.In the next breath, G described his family s long military history, and later, the issue he takes with Haredi exemption from mandatory military service in Israel.Then we talked about World Pride in Toronto.Israel is a peculiar place, for you can forget about the last 66 years (and beyond) of turbulence and bordering instability when you see a couple making out off of Ben Yehuda Street in Jerusalem and spend a couple hours eating ice cream at Betzet Beach south of Rosh HaNikra.But when you climb Mount Bental in the Golan Heights and hear bombs going off in Syria, or stare down a soldier s M16 in a rest-stop bathroom, or pass by a Jerusalem bus marked with a banner that reads Bring Back Our Boys (in reference to the three abducted Israeli teens), you become acutely aware of just where you are, and how quickly things can change.The difference can indeed be equivalent to just one 11-hour plane ride.From the searing pain of those dark days after September 11, 2001, to the moonless Pakistani night when she watched Americans catch up with Osama bin Laden from the White House Situation Room, Hillary Rodham

State, and likely 2016 Democrat presidential contender, Ms.Clinton spoke of America as a country that is at its best when it engages with the world with purpose and principle.She described the rights

Guangcheng, the Chinese civil rights activist who in 2012 fled house arrest for the U.Embassy in Beijing, setting Ms.Clinton on a diplomatic high-wire act.He was injured, he was in danger, he asked for our help, she said.He had come to the one place he thought stood for freedom.He now lives with his family in New York City.She would not be baited on the Keystone XL pipeline question, but she

pulled her aside at a nuclear summit in Prague to tell her she had something stuck in her teeth.That is a true friend, she said, and spoke frankly of her fondness for her former bitter rival, and their first meeting after he won.It was like an awkward first date, like teenagers who know each other, but warily, she said.She dodged specific questions on the Keystone XL pipeline decision, but

n experience you have waited your whole life for.We do it in a way I feel is unique.Q: How do you market your business?The most powerful tool for me is referral.Nothing is stronger.You don’t just choose someone from a phone book anymore.Brown does do some advertising in wedding and other magazines locally.I try to focus on a high level of customer service and word of mouth.Q: What was your background before getting into the bridal business?Brown earned a degree in interior design but had an eye on having her own business.Several years ago Brown was helping her mother open a wedding event space in the Paola http://www.newgenealogydresses.com/bridesmaid-dresses-21-1.html , Kan.We got a phone call from Sandy’s Bridal that was interested in selling me their business.She put her other activities on hold and bought the business in 2007, right in the middle of the banking crisis.Brown’s husband helped with financing the purchase.Brown had never been in the bridal industry, so she quickly found a mentor.I fell into a great relationship with one of the managers there.That’s unique and not common.We’re best friends, and she’s still my right hand person today.The shop was in an older building, and Brown was concerned about whether it was the right location.Yet, the new location wasn’t the answer either.The drive was becoming too much for people from the metro area to come out to us.People would come here first, look for what they wanted and buy somewhere closer.In 2010, Brown made the decision to move her store closer in to the area at West 135th Street and Roe Boulevard.CommunityAmerica Credit Union financed her move and the business itself.Q: What was your next move?Brown was at the West 135 Street location for five years.Before long, it was time for another move.It had always been my goal to purchase a location and own the property.Brown looked around for some time and was about to give up the search.I called and it was the perfect price and location for me.Brown did all of the negotiating on the former event space herself, closing on the property in August of last year.She spent the past 10 months renovating the space.I had to put in three new heating and cooling units; every wall had to be redone.Brown hired an architect and the contractor.But she was so easy to deal with because she got it.Now it looks like something you would find downtown with reclaimed brick walls, open ceiling and wood floors.Brown is leasing out 1,000 square feet to Bella Hair Company, which gives her an additional revenue stream.It’s a good marriage between the two businesses.We have a vestibule where they can see both.Q: There are so many wedding dresses out there.How do you choose inventory?Emily Hart Bridal carries about 800 dresses in its store including bridesmaid, mother of the bride and flower girl gowns.to select her inventory.This year she added special occasion dresses as well.Perhaps the biggest development has been the creation of her own design line, called Emmaline.Because girls were coming in saying they wanted to customize dresses and vendors couldn’t do that http://www.newgenealogydresses.com/wedding-shoes-20-1.html , I started doing customized dresses that no one else has.Most of my inventory today is my line.We do 24 dresses a year that I actually sketch.Once a gown is designed, Brown turns it to her team of seamstresses to make the dress.She also sells her line wholesale nationally and internationally.She said today 80 percent of her sales come from custom-designed gowns.Q: What is your greatest challenge?Because I am a small business I don’t have the benefits that bigger companies can offer, and it’s retail so you have to work on weekends.Brown said she tries to address the issue by providing a good work environment.Brown makes a point of showing appreciation for her employees.To avoid problems, Brown takes extra care in hiring.I have them go online and look at all of our reviews.I want them to be able to relate to customers.I can train them on the rest.IN A NUTSHELLCOMPANY: Emily Hart BridalADDRESS: 12450 Blue Valley Parkway, Overland ParkWEB SITE: www.Social pressures and skyrocketing prices of jewellery and couture, especially embroidered and sequined bridal wear, have given birth to the business of renting bridal dresses and even jewellery in Pakistan.If bought from a designer the minimum price is 200,000 rupees and top designers charge up to 1,000,000 rupees.For many residents of Islamabad, a city known for being Pakistan s most expensive, it is a norm to head to bazaars of neighbouring Rawalpindi for more affordable prices.There was more variety in Rawalpindi but even there, no bridal dress was available for less than 20,000 rupees, she said.Places such as Tench Bhatta are even cheaper http://www.newgenealogydresses.com/wedding-accessories-19-1.html , he said.The minimum rent for these dresses is 500 rupees and goes up, according to style and quality of beadwork.So we decided to rent a dress, she said.It is good sense as such a dress is worn very occasionally and so investing money in a dress seems like too much of a luxury, he said.Luisa chose a 1950s style dress for her big day, held at the same registry office they celebrated their civil ceremony at in 2006.The soap star looked gorgeous in the full-skirted number paired with red satin heels to coordinate with the dress' sash.So cute: Luisa announced the news on Twitter alongside a photograph of a sign which reads, 'Happily ever after starts here', followed by an arrowHer bride meanwhile chose a more traditional floor-length gown with a sparkling belt.The couple revealed that they walked down the aisle with their two adopted daughters aged 12 and 13, who acted as bridesmaids.We walked down the aisle holding hands and our girls, who were our bridesmaids, walked behind us holding hands,' Luisa told OK!To walk down the aisle with our girls was so beautiful.They do: Luisa and her long-term partner, who share two adopted daughters, have been in a relationship for 16 years and held a civil ceremony in 2006 Read the full story in this week's OK!Magazine - out nowLuisa added that she and her wife were emotional all day, confessing ‘we c.
r is it because the lilacs http://www.homecomingdresswe.com/cocktail-dresses-2015-37-1.html , like humans who resent the omnipotence of the Deity, begrudge a similar power imbalance when it comes to the gardener?Perhaps they thought she controlled the weather.Their spread is aided and abetted by Charlotte, who thinks they are beautiful.Cultivating the mold and shapes its products into separate colonies named West Lands, the Desert, and the Valley, she begins to relish her role as an all powerful Creator.The only thing between them and disaster or annihilation.When the property manager, alerted by the stink, threatens to destroy her beautiful molds, Charlotte is horrified.They would need a different solar system, another galaxy in which to flourish.Charlotte was listening.She would answer their prayer.The reader is warned that Charlotte’s answer to the mold’s prayers are not for the squeamish.I did pay the price, many times, the sting of my skin slapping against the face of the water, my nose ballooning with her spray, my forehead whipped by her palm.There were times I thought the water hated me.a story about an Olympic diver.the diver proclaims.It was flashy, arrogant to approach water this way.And throughout my years of training, I did pay the price, many times, the sting of my skin slapping against the face of the water, my nose ballooning with her spray, my forehead whipped by her palm.The grotesque is often most evident in literature concerning death, as with the mourning dress given to the Portuguese bride.is almost entirely about the sudden, unexplained death of a middle-aged woman and the subsequent mourning rituals, especially those intended for children.drawings using paint and glitter, paper, beads http://www.homecomingdresswe.com/cocktail-dresses-2016-35-1.html , and pencil crayons.It’s the smiley face grotesque.This free spirit collects used chimes and also makes them herself with cheap jewellery beads, mismatched cutlery, odd screws and long, dangling earrings, pigeon feathers and pine cones, a plastic Tupperware lid, playing cards, rusted nails.These are supposed to attract the dead with sounds only they can hear.says the daughter of the wind chimes collector.Another instance of a grotesque engagement with death is the King Lear ploy, which never succeeds.a ninety-year old widower, living with a horde of cats, summons his three daughters from out of town and asks each of them how much they love him.The results follow the King Lear pattern.I must put things in order, he claimed, and prepare to distribute what I own.The two elder daughters thereupon professed obviously exaggerated love for their father.The third was more candid.The daughters attend the funeral and return to their homes where they care for dogs.This is irony of some kind.Unlike in Shakespeare, none of this seems to matter, ultimately.The father dies and the daughters get all the money left to them by the man’s will after the death of the man’s wife.The only change is that the cats are taken away by the pound.a difficulty exemplified by the title story, which consists of a paragraph or sentence per page, with a phrase at the bottom of the page.The phrases, one supposes, are meant to resonate in juxtaposition with the main text.tongues of fire appeared.appears, a truncated sentence which explains the narrative, to a certain extent.The characters in this collection are indeed spectral figures, roaming a weird landscape.Another anecdote in the movie is completely invented.Kyle and his fellow soldiers enter a civilian house and take up station there.Though the family inside is obviously startled, they welcome the men to have dinner with them.However, when Kyle inspects the house more carefully, he finds WMDs hidden beneath the floorboards http://www.homecomingdresswe.com/ , and outs the family as pro-insurgency, beginning a firefight.No such incident happens in the memoir.FALLEN FRIENDSKyle’s friendships with his fellow soldiers shifted with each deployment, but two names recur in both movie and text: Ryan Jobs and Marc Lee.Neither portrayal, as it turns out, is accurate onscreen.played by Jake McDorman) is shot in the head and blinded by Syrian sniper Mustafa, but survives long enough to propose to his girlfriend.He dies soon after, and that death defines Kyle’s fourth tour in Iraq and spurs him to seek revenge against Mustafa.In reality, according to Kyle’s memoir, the Navy discharged Biggles from service following his injury.The ex-SEAL attended college, began a career, and got married before dying on the operating table while his wife was pregnant with their first child.Moviegoers will remember Marc Lee (Luke Grimes) as the man who became disillusioned with combat and argued with Kyle shortly before his death in the field.Kyle believes this lack of faith in the war caused his death; Taya disagrees and they debate that point, focusing on a letter Lee wrote his mother, at the memorial service.Though most of the movie’s inaccuracies make Kyle seem more sympathetic, in this case his memoir displays more compassion.In the book, Kyle praises the letter and says he attended a memorial service at base and then paid graveside respects to Lee at the funeral of another SEAL.who appears from nowhere to down American soldiers.we see his face but only in combat.This is also Kyle’s legendary longest shot: 2100 yards or a little over a mile.did not align in one moment.Mustafa existed but only merits this brief mention in Kyle’s memoir:While we were on the berm watching the city, we were also watching warily for an Iraqi sniper known as Mustafa.From the reports we heard, Mustafa was an Olympics marksman who was using his skills against Americans and Iraqi police and soldiers.Several videos had been made and posted, boasting of his ability.I never saw him, but other snipers later killed an Iraqi sniper we think was him.As for his longest confirmed kill, Kyle targeted a roof-bound enemy insurgent aiming a rocket launcher at American soldiers outside Sadr City.And the shot did not, once made, alert Iraqi insurgents to their position and create a dramatic firestorm that disillusioned Kyle, as in.

anned.said Szuszkiewicz http://www.cheapeveningdressuk.com/pageant-dresses-for-kids-26-1.html , who will celebrate his 31st birthday the day the experiment ends.The year sans spending had its ups and downs.Phillips’ best friend got engaged halfway through the project, and the friend admitted she was nervous to ask Phillips to be her maid of honour because of the experiment.So I purchased a dress and a pair of shoes for her wedding.The experiment forced both Phillips and Szuszkiewicz to slow down, be conscious of their values and deeply examine their relationship with money.When Phillips got a new job, she moved out of Szuszkiewicz’s home in May so she would be closer to work, because the project taught her a short sans-car commute was important to her.The pair spent a lot of time cooking.Refraining from dining out or buying a quick coffee or snack, or hopping into the car when they wanted to go somewhere, meant planning ahead was important.Phillips, a social-butterfly, said cutting out eating and drinking with friends was the hardest part of the year-long adventure.The experiment forced the duo to get creative.They volunteered at events and festivals so they could attend for free.They learned to make port wine.They borrowed items they needed but didn’t have.They installed an aquaponics system that produced greens and reduced their grocery bill further.They inherited stuff from friends, who were eager to discuss why they were willingly cutting consumerism out of their lives.said Phillips with a laugh.I found people have a lot of stuff in their lives that they don’t want anymore.Neither Szuszkiewicz or Phillips are counting down the days until Sunday, when they experiment is officially over and they can finally spend freely.And, as for the future?Weddings are supposed to be happy occasions.The recent nuptials of my best friend Marla were no exception, featuring a beautiful bride, smiling relatives and plenty of children racing around, high on cake and up way past their bedtimes.Marla and I have known each other since college;Marina, to serve as co-maids of honour, and so on a warm July evening we celebrated her union to her wonderful husband Rick, toasting their joy and laughing in the sunshine.But weddings can also be bittersweet.They raise memories, of places, people and experiences we thought we had lain to rest, both literally and figuratively.And so it was that, gazing out at the banquet hall from my seat at the head table, I suddenly realized that something was amiss.The chair next to my mother was empty.The reason for the empty chair was purely innocent.It was initially occupied by my five-year old daughter Zara, who was serving as co-flower girl with the bride’s niece, Rachel.Zara took her part so seriously that she walked up and down the aisle not once http://www.cheapeveningdressuk.com/flower-girl-dresses-4-1.html , but three times, during the ceremony, to ensure that the petals were properly distributed.She was in heaven: in love with her dress, the mushroom appetizers, and Rachel, with whom she had become fast friends.But Zara became inconsolable at dinner when she realized that Mummy would not be sitting with her.She sobbed at me across the room, uncomforted even by the presence of her grandmother.I went over to explain that Mummy had to sit with the bride, because my job was to take care of her needs during the wedding.You’re supposed to take care of me!Then I suggested she sit with Rachel.Tears disappeared and Zara happily ensconced herself at the table of the bride’s brother, his three children, and his lovely wife, whom I thanked profusely.I returned to my friend, my mother remained sitting next to my partner Bill, and everyone’s dinner went on swimmingly.My father loved my friend Marla, and he would have loved to be at her weddingThat is, until my gaze fell upon the empty chair.Suddenly I felt a wave of grief so powerful it nearly knocked me over.I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t speak.I began to cry just like my daughter had.And all I could think was: That chair should not be empty.Papa should be sitting in that chair.My father died the day after Christmas, 2012, age 87, after a years-long battle with emphysema and, in the end, dementia.But it wasn’t that Papa, old and frail, that I remembered.It was the father I knew before, who cut a dapper figure in his suit, made sarcastic jokes http://www.cheapeveningdressuk.com/evening-dresses-2016-32-1.html , and charmed my friends at events like this.He loved my friend Marla, and he would have loved to be at her wedding.He would have chatted with her parents and the groom.all the while secretly pleased that he still noticed, after four decades of marriage.But he wouldn’t do that tonight, or any night.The chair beside my mother would always be empty.The co-maid of honour asked me what was wrong, but I couldn’t say.We hurried into the hall, where I sat mute for several minutes before finally choking out the words: I miss my father.She had lost her own father to Parkinson’s several years before, and had experienced the same sudden grief, in unexpected places and random moments, since he passed.And it will happen again.We sat there until I composed myself.I didn’t want to upset my mother.After we went to bed, I told Bill what had happened, and he held me tight in the darkness.He had never much cared for the groom, but was too classy to say it directlyThinking about the experience the next day, I remembered my own wedding, nearly two decades ago, at which my father gave a speech that, on the surface, seemed quite beautiful.But dear Papa had a clever way with words.I want to congratulate my daughter on the occasion of her first marriage.I still smile at this.He had never much cared for the groom, but was too classy to say it directly.Prophetically, the union was dissolved four years later.I know Papa wouldn’t have spoken those words at Marla’s wedding; Rick is the good man all fathers want their daughters to marry.My father would have been supremely happy for her, as we all were.And the day before, July 17, would have been his 89th birthday.and a somewhat unlikely officiant.Below, the five things we know about the private ceremony, based on .
