CLEVELAND -- For their next three games, American League Central Division rivals Cleveland and Detroit wont have to scoreboard watch, because the team each team is most concerned with will be in the other dugout. Jarrod Dyson Jersey .The first-place Indians and second-place Tigers meet Friday night at Progressive Field in the first contest of a three-game series. They play a four-game series in Detroit from Sept. 26-29. So for each team, seven of their next 13 games will be against each other.The Indians go into this crucial portion of their schedule with a decided advantage over the Tigers. Cleveland has a six-game lead over the second place Tigers in the Central Division race. In the season series, Cleveland leads 11-1 and has outscored Detroit 79-36.That six-game difference in the division race could change quickly, however, should either team sweep this weekends series. Not surprisingly, then, both teams have juggled their starting rotations so their top pitchers will pitch in this series.Fridays pitching matchup is Cy Young Award candidate Corey Kluber for the Indians and Rookie of the Year candidate Michael Fulmer for the Tigers. Saturday pits Clevelands Carlos Carrasco versus Detroits Justin Verlander. Sunday, its the Indians Trevor Bauer against the Tigers Daniel Norris.The same pitching matchups are expected to be repeated in the four-game series in Detroit the last week of the regular season.Weve tried to set it up where we have our best pitchers going against the team were chasing in the division, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. Theyre pitching against them both times (we play them).The Tigers are also very much alive in the AL wild-card race, but Ausmus said their priority is still trying to catch Cleveland.Were trying to do what we can to catch the Indians. Thats the goal, he said.Fulmer (10-6, 2.76 ERA) has had an outstanding rookie season, but he has faded somewhat in the second half. Hes won only one game since July 6, a span of 10 starts, and in his last four turns he is 0-3 with a 5.32 ERA. That could be attributed to the career-high 143 2/3 innings hes pitched.Ausmus has tried to give Fulmer some extra days rest between starts.Even with his innings up, more than 20-25 percent, weve pitched him on long rest, a lot. Which I think the recovery is better, Ausmus said.In two starts against the Indians this year, Fulmer is 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA.Kluber has been on a roll in the second half. In his last 12 starts, he is 8-1 with a 2.04 ERA. Hes held opposing hitters to a .206 batting average while averaging 10.1 strikeouts per nine innings. In 29 starts overall, he is 16-9 with a 3.05 ERA. That includes a record of 2-0 and an 0.53 ERA in two starts versus Detroit.Were just trying to take the rest of this season a day at a time, Kluber said. We dont want to get ahead of ourselves because that can open the door for dangerous things to happen.The Indians had hoped to activate catcher Yan Gomes off the disabled list Friday, but that will likely not happen. In his last minor league rehab game Wednesday, Gomes was hit by a pitch on his right hand. He had an X-ray and MRI on Thursday, and the Indians are expected to announce the results of those tests Friday. Jake Lamb Jersey .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have recalled forward Kevin Porter and defenceman Chad Ruhwedel from the minors as part of a five-player roster shuffle made by the NHLs worst team. Curt Schilling Jersey . -- Timbers coach Caleb Porter didnt stray from his business-like approach to the season even after Portland downed the two-time defending league champion Los Angeles Galaxy to gain crucial playoff position. http://www.cheapdiamondbacksjerseyschina.com/zack-greinke-jersey/ . The Lightning are 2-0 so far on a four-game road trip, giving the club five straight wins as the guest and improving Tampas away record this season to 11-8-2. A lucrative boxing match between pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather and UFC star Conor McGregor is still more fantasy than reality -- but never say never.McGregors agent, Audie Attar of Paradigm Sports Management, told ESPNs Five Rounds podcast Tuesday that McGregors team would be very interested in the event, should talks become serious.McGregor (21-3) is a two-weight UFC champion, who has already demanded $100 million for a proposed boxing match against Mayweather. The Irish star remains under contract with the UFC. According to Attar, a lot would have to happen for a Mayweather fight to take place. But Attar and McGregor are in the business of keeping options open.Look, it wasnt something we started, right? Attar said. It was something Floyd started and Conor responded in kind on social media. Its obviously built up public interest. Part of that may have been Floyd testing waters -- I really dont know what his motives are.All I can tell you is we are very interested if its serious. Ultimately, I think we have to see if its real or not. Thats what it comes down to.Floyd may have been waiting to see if Conor is the real deal and I think how he handled his first adversity with Nate [Diaz], beating Nate the second time at 170 [pounds], dominating the lightweight champion, the first to hold two belts -- I think hes shown hes for real.Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs) hasnt fought since September 2015, when he defeated Andre Berto via unanimous decision and announced his retirement.He recently fueled speculation of a rematch with Manny Pacquiao by attending the Filipino boxers win over Jesse Vargas on Nov. 5 in Las Vegas.I dont know if Flloyd is enjoying the retirement life too much, if its a PR stint to keep the fun going of what he has going on in the boxing world, Attar said. Robbie Ray Jersey. . Ultimately, I think well find out soon enough if [his interest in fighting McGregor] is real or not.I think theres so many moving parts that it would take hours for us to discuss [the logistics of that fight]. I think [UFC president Dana White] has interest in this as well.In the meantime, White told the Los Angeles Times that McGregor wont be back in the Octagon until at least May. The 28-year-old is expecting the birth of his first child in 2017.McGregors upcoming hiatus coincides with WWEs WrestleMania 33 card on April 2 in Orlando, Florida -- leading some to speculate about a potential foray into the scripted world of pro wrestling for the two-weight UFC champion.Attar said Tuesday that its something McGregor is willing to entertain -- as long as the money is right.I think its all about business, man, Attar said. If [WWE] is going to come with an offer, we are willing to entertain it. We are here. Have their people call his people -- which is me. We can have a conversation.McGregor has also said he expected a meeting with WME-IMG, UFCs new ownership, and feels he deserves a stake in the company that was just sold for $4 billion.When you see other athletes and other celebrities now owning a piece of [the UFC], why not? Attar said. The guy drives the most revenue.?Unless there is a logical answer for that, were still waiting. We havent heard one.

BALTIMORE -- Stunned by an early barrage of home runs, the Houston Astros put on an offensive show of their own to emphatically end a five-game losing streak. Miguel Cabrera Jersey .Jose Altuve homered and had five RBI, and Houston rallied to beat the Baltimore Orioles 15-8 on Friday night despite allowing four homers in the first inning.George Springer went 4 for 5 with a home run for the Astros, who also got long balls from Evan Gattis and Teoscar Hernandez.Early on, Houston appeared destined to drop to .500 for the first time since June 1.The Orioles became the first team in the modern era (since 1900) to open a game with four home runs before making an out, according to STATS. Adam Jones hit Collin McHughs first pitch into the seats in left field and Hyun Soo Kim singled before Manny Machado, Chris Davis and Mark Trumbo homered in succession.Houston answered with a five-run second to go up 6-5. Altuve capped the surge with a two-run double with two outs to chase Wade Miley, who matched the shortest start of his career.You go from really being shell-shocked in the first with the home runs -- to knocking out their starter in the top of the second, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. Its hard to describe, because youre not used to seeing that at this level. But that was quite an outburst for us.Springer said, The key to that game was that second inning.When the Astros finally got done running around the bases, they had a victory to savor.I know that this game is going to create some momentum, Altuve said, and were going to keep winning games.Altuve became the first Astro to have 20 homers and 20 steals in a season since Carlos Beltran in 2004.The Orioles, meanwhile, have 11 home runs in the first two games of this series. But Baltimore didnt have enough firepower in this one to overcome its poor pitching, which surrendered a season-high 15 runs and 18 hits.Miley was the most obvious culprit. Staked to a 5-1 lead, he got two more outs before being lifted.It was terrible. Its embarrassing for that to happen, he said. I flat-out stunk.The left-hander is 0-2 with a 9.53 ERA in four starts since being traded from Seattle on July 31.Chris Devenski (2-4) allowed one hit in four innings for the Astros after McHugh yielded seven runs and nine hits in three innings.I dont know if Ive ever been blitzed like that before in my career, the right-hander said. Todays game in general was kind of a crazy.Springer provided a glimpse of things to come by hitting a leadoff homer on the fifth pitch from Miley.After the teams traded five-run innings, Baltimore went up 7-6 in the third and Houston pulled even in the fourth.The Astros took a 9-7 lead against Ubaldo Jimenez (5-10) in the fifth. Hernandez blooped an RBI single to center and Springer greeted Tyler Wilson with a run-scoring single.Pedro Alvarez homered in the bottom half before Houston pulled away in the sixth, getting a two-run homer from Altuve and a solo shot from Gattis.ROSTER MOVESAstros: Optioned reliever James Hoyt to Triple-A Fresno and recalled Brad Peacock from the same club. We need some fresh arms up here, Hinch said.Orioles: Optioned Wilson to Triple-A Norfolk after the game.TRAINERS ROOMAstros: OF Jake Marisnick got the night off as he tries to work through a sore groin. Hes played in only two games since Aug. 11. Hes not moving quite at full speed, Hinch said.Orioles: OF Joey Rickard (thumb) wont be ready to play when rosters expand on Sept. 1, manager Buck Showalter said.UP NEXTAstros: Mike Fiers (8-6, 4.66 ERA) makes his 88th career start Saturday, facing the Orioles for the first time.Orioles: Chris Tillman (15-4, 3.46) gets the call after having his start Wednesday pushed back because of a sore right shoulder. Michael Fulmer Jersey .C. -- Al Jefferson joked that he feels he can score from anywhere on the court. Youth Tigers Jerseys .B. - Sebastien Auger made 44 saves as the Saint John Sea Dogs edged the visiting Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2-1 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. http://www.cheaptigersjerseyschina.com/denny-mclain-jersey/ . The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday.Neil McCann is backing Rangers to prolong Hibernians Scottish Cup misery this weekend - even though he believes Alan Stubbs has a tactical ace up his sleeve. The clubs have met five times this season - with Rangers holding a 3-2 aggregate advantage - but Hibs have the positive memory of their most recent encounter, a 3-2 league win at Easter Road last month.  They have fallen out of the Premiership play-off picture in the interim but McCann is expecting another gripping encounter at the national stadium. He told Sky Sports News HQ: How much of a hangover there will be for Hibs after the defeat against Falkirk remains to be seen, but this game stands alone. If you are a player, you cant help but look forward to it. Sky Sports pundit Neil McCann previews the weekend Scottish Cup showpiece Rangers form has dipped since they won the league and maybe the players were protecting themselves a little bit and Mark Warburton will not be too downcast as long as they deliver on the day. Alan Trammell Jersey. The only thing that would concern me from a Rangers point of view is how they performed against Hibs last time out. Alan Stubbs played three at the back and to be honest Rangers did not have much of an answer.  Friendly banter pre-match, but which manager will be smiling on Saturday night? That could hand Hibs an advantage as Stubbs knows he has beaten Rangers playing 4-4-3 and 5-3-2 so he has got options if he feels he needs to change things during the game.It will be an intriguing game. Hibs will be tight they wont be too open. Rangers have not won it since 2009 and they will have a big incentive too with a possible place in the Europa League qualifiers and I think they might just shade it.    Also See: Rangers v Hibs match preview Warburton: Cup final is bonus Stubbs seeking positives McLean honoured to take charge Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 NFL Jerseys China China Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Online ' ' '

After a thrilling day of initial group matches between eight elite Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams, the DreamHack Winter action continued Friday as the tournament took its next step toward crowning a $50,000 winner. Braves Jerseys From China . With GODSENT and Renegades already through to the semifinals by way of coming out of their groups as the first seed, the remaining six teams battled it out for the final two spots in the semifinals. After four best-of-three series, Team Kinguin and Gambit Gaming came out victorious. With four dark horse teams in the playoffs, it is basically anyones tournament to win.Team Kinguin earns victory in Group AIn what has continued to be a tournament of upsets, the reigning Epicenter winners, Team Dignitas, were felled in the Group A losers match against FlipSid3 Tactics. While FlipSid3 is a team that has been gaining some ground in the Counter-Strike scene of late, Team Dignitas is widely considered to be a top-10, if not top-five team. For the mostly-Danish squad to get taken out by a team that has struggled in recent months is a bit surprising. It wasnt a blowout by any means, as both of FlipSid3s wins went 30 rounds while Dignitas win went 29. The close win moved FlipSid3 on to the Group A decider to take on Team Kinguin.The momentum did not help FlipSid3 in its next matchup, however, as Kinguin got off to a nice start in the decider series, jumping out to an early 6-2 lead. But FlipSid3 wasnt going to let things get away that easily. It would storm all the way back to force overtime and eventually take the first map 19-16. Game 2 switched over to Overpass and saw FlipSid3 get off to a 9-6 lead at the half only for Kinguin to march right back. Miko?aj mouz Karolewski kicked it into high gear and helped Kinguin bounce back with a 10-4 second half to take the map 16-13. Mouz finished with a kills/deaths count (K/D) of 23/18 and a game-high 94.3 average damage per round (ADR). The teams would move to Mirage for the final game where FlipSid3 got off to a quick 6-1 start before its wheels completely came off. Kinguin, behind a stellar game from Micha? MICHU Müller, won 15 straight rounds to take the map and the series, moving on to face Renegades in semifinals Saturday.Gambit Gaming defies the odds and advances to semifinalsAfter Cloud9 was upset by Renegades in the first game of Group B on Thursday, the North American team was forced to battle through the losers bracket of Group B to make its way to the semifinals. That road started with a matchup against the other North American team in the tournament, OpTic Gaming. While many would have expected a bit of a close series, it ended up being anything but. Jordan n0thing Gilbert helped Cloud9 make incredibly short work of OpTic, posting a 49/28 K/D and 97.3 ADR. The team won Game 1 on Overpass 16-8 and Game 2 on Dust 2 16-6. That set the team up with a match against Gambit Gaming.At first, Gambit didnt put up much more of a fight in its series against Cloud9 than OpTic did. Cloud9 seemingly picked up right where it left off with OpTic, taking Game 1 on Mirage by a lopsided score of 16-6. This time it was Timothy autimatic Ta coming up big with a 27/9 K/D to go along with a stellar 114.7 ADR. Game 2 was a completely different story, as it seemed as though some other force took over control of Gambit. It got off to a 13-2 start with Rustem mou Tlepov leading the way with his 16/5 K/D at the half. Gambit would then win the first three rounds of the second half to take the game 16-2. The final game on Dust 2 was the closest of the series, but it was Gambit that would come out victorious against all odds. The European team got out to an 11-4 lead at the half before wrapping up the 16-11 win. This time it was Dauren AdreN Kystaubayev who stepped up to lead the team to victory, putting together an impressive 24/14 K/D. Gambit is moving on to face GODSENT in the semifinals Saturday. Jose Ramirez Jersey . -- Ohio States Urban Meyer has never had any issue acclimating to the biggest stages in college football. Dansby Swanson Jersey . DAmigo scored twice in regulation and added the shootout winner as the Toronto Marlies edged the San Antonio Rampage 5-4 in American Hockey League action. http://www.cheapbravesjerseyschina.com/tyler-flowers-jersey/ . -- Eastern Kentucky thrives off creating havoc for others. RIO DE JANEIRO -- With fireworks forming the word Rio in the sky and supermodel Gisele Bundchen shimmering to the tune of The Girl From Ipanema, Rio de Janiero jubilantly welcomed the world Friday to the first Olympic Games in South America.After one of the roughest-ever rides from vote to Games by an Olympic host, the city of beaches, carnival, grinding poverty and sun-kissed wealth opened the two-week Games of the 31st Olympiad with a high-energy gala celebration of Brazils can-do spirit, biodiversity and melting pot history.The low-tech, cut-price opening ceremony, a moment of levity for a nation beset by economic and political woes, featured performers as slaves, gravity-defying climbers hanging from buildings in Brazils teeming megacities and -- of course -- dancers, all hips and wobble, grooving to thumping funk and sultry samba.Brazil also packaged its party with solemnity, lacing the fun and frivolous show with sobering messages about global warming and conservation. Images of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, swirling in the Earths atmosphere were followed by projections of world cities and regions -- Amsterdam, Florida, Shanghai, Dubai -- being swamped by rising seas.The peace symbol, tweaked into the shape of a tree, was projected onto the floor of the Maracana Stadium that filled with thousands of athletes from 207 teams.The heat is melting the ice cap, a voice intoned. Its disappearing very quickly.The crowd roared when Bundchen, the Brazilian supermodel?and wife of?New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady,?sashayed from one side of the 78,000-seat Maracana Stadium to the other as Tom Jobims grandson, Daniel, played his?grandfathers famous song about the Ipanema girl tall and tan and young and lovely.In a video preceding the show, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the Games celebrate the best of humanity and appealed for an Olympic truce, calling on all warring parties to lay down their weapons during the two weeks of sporting achievement.There were times after the International Olympic Committee selected Rio ahead of Chicago, Tokyo and Madrid in 2009 when it seemed that the city of 6.5 million people might not get its act together for the worlds greatest sporting mega-event. The spreading health crisis of the mosquito-born Zika virus kept some athletes away.Promises to clean Rios filthy waters remained unfulfilled. The heavy bill for the Games, at least $12 billion, made them unpopular with many. Heavily armed security stopped a small group of protesters from getting close to the stadium ahead of the ceremony.But with more than a dash of gambiarra, the Brazilian art of quick-fixes and making do, Rio is ready.Our admiration is even greater because you managed this at a very difficult time in Brazilian history. We have always believed in you, IOC president Thomas Bach said.The honor of officially declaring the Games open fell to Michel Temer, Brazils unpopular interim president, who was loudly jeered and faced shouts of out with Temer. He was standing in for suspended President Dilma Rousseff. Her ouster less than four months before the Games for alleged budget violations was one of many obstacles in the works of Brazils Olympic preparations, and it impacted the opening ceremony itself.?Fewer than 25 foreign heads of state were expected, with others seemingly staying away to avoid giving the impression of taking sides amid Brazils leadership uncertainty. As Brazilian officials took their seats in the stadium, there were shouts of out with Temer from sections of the crowd.Jamaicas Usain Bolt, the two-time defending champion in the Olympic 100- and 200-meter races, skipped the ceremony, as expected. Bolt announced his decision earlier in the day. Friday was the fourth anniversary of Bolts winnning the gold in the 100 at the London Games. Womens Braves Jerseys. Also missing was 75-year-old Brazilian soccer great Pele, who announced earlier Friday that he was not physically able to attend the opening of the Olympics. He had previously said this week that he had been invited to light the cauldron, although that was not confirmed by Rio organizers.Instead, the cannonball-shaped cauldron was lit by Brazilian marathoner Vanderlei Cordeiro de Lima. At the 2004 Games, an Irish spectator wearing a kilt, knee-socks and a beret tackled de Lima while he was leading the Olympic marathon. Rather than gold, he fell back to take bronze.Greece, the historic and spiritual home of the Games, led the march by athletes into the stadium. They were joined by the first Refugee Olympic Team of 10 athletes displaced from Syria, South Sudan, Congo and Ethiopia. Their flag-bearer, Rose Nathike Lokonyen, fled war in South Sudan and ran her first race in a refugee camp in northern Kenya. Only Brazils team, which marched last, drew a louder roar from the crowd than the refugees.The athletes were given tree seeds, plus cartridges of soil. When the trees sprout, they will be planted in a Rio park.With USA emblazoned on the back of his jacket, Michael Phelps carried the flag for the U.S. team, the largest with 549 competitors. At his fifth Olympics, it was the first time the record-holder of 22 medals had marched in an opening ceremony, having skipped previous ones to save energy for competition.On behalf of all 11,288 competitors (6,182 men and 5,106 women), Brazilian two-time Olympic champion sailor Robert Scheidt pledged not to take banned drugs -- an oath likely to ring false to fans after the scandal of government-orchestrated cheating in Russia. As a consequence, Russias team was whittled down from a hoped-for 389 athletes to around 270.Iran picked a woman, archer Zahra Nemati, as flag-bearer for its team made up overwhelmingly of men. Another woman pushed Nematis wheelchair. The archer was paralyzed in a car accident as a teenager.Shoals of samba dancers flowed in a rainbow of colors, but many showed less flesh than normal for Brazil, seemingly mindful of their global TV audience.After the grandeur of Beijings opening ceremony in 2008 and the high-tech, cheeky inventiveness of Londons in 2012, Rios was earthier and less swish but more sobering with its gloomy environmental look at the future and deliberate penny-pinching. Creative director Fernando Meirelles said the budget, slashed by half as Brazils economic recession bit ever harder, is 12 times less than London, 20 times less than Beijing.It is pretty tacky to be overspending, he said. It is not a good message for the world. When 40 percent of the homes in Brazil have no sanitation, you cant really be spending a billion reals for a show. In the end, I feel good that I am not spending money that Brazil hasnt got.In the U.S., NBC faced social media criticism for its decision to delay the broadcast of the ceremony so it could be shown in prime time in all time zones. Frequent commercial breaks, including eight in the first 65 minutes, also proved frustrating for time-shifting viewers accustomed to fast-forwarding through ads.NBC began its telecasting of the festivities an hour after they begin in Rio on Friday. On the U.S. West Coast, the telecast of the opening ceremony wasnt set to start for another hour. NBC didnt start streaming the event through its app or Olympics website until the television coverage began, and streamers had to authenticate their account with a cable or satellite service.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- With fireworks forming the word Rio in the sky and supermodel Gisele Bundchen shimmering to the tune of The Girl From Ipanema, Rio de Janiero jubilantly welcomed the world Friday to the first Olympic Games in South America.After one of the roughest-ever rides from vote to Games by an Olympic host, the city of beaches, carnival, grinding poverty and sun-kissed wealth opened the two-week Games of the 31st Olympiad with a high-energy gala celebration of Brazils can-do spirit, biodiversity and melting pot history.The low-tech, cut-price opening ceremony, a moment of levity for a nation beset by economic and political woes, featured performers as slaves, gravity-defying climbers hanging from buildings in Brazils teeming megacities and -- of course -- dancers, all hips and wobble, grooving to thumping funk and sultry samba.Brazil also packaged its party with solemnity, lacing the fun and frivolous show with sobering messages about global warming and conservation. Images of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, swirling in the Earths atmosphere were followed by projections of world cities and regions -- Amsterdam, Florida, Shanghai, Dubai -- being swamped by rising seas.The peace symbol, tweaked into the shape of a tree, was projected onto the floor of the Maracana Stadium that filled with thousands of athletes from 207 teams.The heat is melting the ice cap, a voice intoned. Its disappearing very quickly.The crowd roared when Bundchen, the Brazilian supermodel?and wife of?New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady,?sashayed from one side of the 78,000-seat Maracana Stadium to the other as Tom Jobims grandson, Daniel, played his?grandfathers famous song about the Ipanema girl tall and tan and young and lovely.In a video preceding the show, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the Games celebrate the best of humanity and appealed for an Olympic truce, calling on all warring parties to lay down their weapons during the two weeks of sporting achievement.There were times after the International Olympic Committee selected Rio ahead of Chicago, Tokyo and Madrid in 2009 when it seemed that the city of 6.5 million people might not get its act together for the worlds greatest sporting mega-event. The spreading health crisis of the mosquito-born Zika virus kept some athletes away.Promises to clean Rios filthy waters remained unfulfilled. The heavy bill for the Games, at least $12 billion, made them unpopular with many. Heavily armed security stopped a small group of protesters from getting close to the stadium ahead of the ceremony.But with more than a dash of gambiarra, the Brazilian art of quick-fixes and making do, Rio is ready.Our admiration is even greater because you managed this at a very difficult time in Brazilian history. We have always believed in you, IOC president Thomas Bach said.The honor of officially declaring the Games open fell to Michel Temer, Brazils unpopular interim president, who was loudly jeered and faced shouts of out with Temer. He was standing in for suspended President Dilma Rousseff. Her ouster less than four months before the Games for alleged budget violations was one of many obstacles in the works of Brazils Olympic preparations, and it impacted the opening ceremony itself.?Fewer than 25 foreign heads of state were expected, with others seemingly staying away to avoid giving the impression of taking sides amid Brazils leadership uncertainty. As Brazilian officials took their seats in the stadium, there were shouts of out with Temer from sections of the crowd.Jamaicas Usain Bolt, the two-time defending champion in the Olympic 100- and 200-meter races, skipped the ceremony, as expected. Bolt announced his decision earlier in the day. Friday was the fourth anniversary of Bolts winnning the gold in the 100 at the London Games. Womens Braves Jerseys. Also missing was 75-year-old Brazilian soccer great Pele, who announced earlier Friday that he was not physically able to attend the opening of the Olympics. He had previously said this week that he had been invited to light the cauldron, although that was not confirmed by Rio organizers.Instead, the cannonball-shaped cauldron was lit by Brazilian marathoner Vanderlei Cordeiro de Lima. At the 2004 Games, an Irish spectator wearing a kilt, knee-socks and a beret tackled de Lima while he was leading the Olympic marathon. Rather than gold, he fell back to take bronze.Greece, the historic and spiritual home of the Games, led the march by athletes into the stadium. They were joined by the first Refugee Olympic Team of 10 athletes displaced from Syria, South Sudan, Congo and Ethiopia. Their flag-bearer, Rose Nathike Lokonyen, fled war in South Sudan and ran her first race in a refugee camp in northern Kenya. Only Brazils team, which marched last, drew a louder roar from the crowd than the refugees.The athletes were given tree seeds, plus cartridges of soil. When the trees sprout, they will be planted in a Rio park.With USA emblazoned on the back of his jacket, Michael Phelps carried the flag for the U.S. team, the largest with 549 competitors. At his fifth Olympics, it was the first time the record-holder of 22 medals had marched in an opening ceremony, having skipped previous ones to save energy for competition.On behalf of all 11,288 competitors (6,182 men and 5,106 women), Brazilian two-time Olympic champion sailor Robert Scheidt pledged not to take banned drugs -- an oath likely to ring false to fans after the scandal of government-orchestrated cheating in Russia. As a consequence, Russias team was whittled down from a hoped-for 389 athletes to around 270.Iran picked a woman, archer Zahra Nemati, as flag-bearer for its team made up overwhelmingly of men. Another woman pushed Nematis wheelchair. The archer was paralyzed in a car accident as a teenager.Shoals of samba dancers flowed in a rainbow of colors, but many showed less flesh than normal for Brazil, seemingly mindful of their global TV audience.After the grandeur of Beijings opening ceremony in 2008 and the high-tech, cheeky inventiveness of Londons in 2012, Rios was earthier and less swish but more sobering with its gloomy environmental look at the future and deliberate penny-pinching. Creative director Fernando Meirelles said the budget, slashed by half as Brazils economic recession bit ever harder, is 12 times less than London, 20 times less than Beijing.It is pretty tacky to be overspending, he said. It is not a good message for the world. When 40 percent of the homes in Brazil have no sanitation, you cant really be spending a billion reals for a show. In the end, I feel good that I am not spending money that Brazil hasnt got.In the U.S., NBC faced social media criticism for its decision to delay the broadcast of the ceremony so it could be shown in prime time in all time zones. Frequent commercial breaks, including eight in the first 65 minutes, also proved frustrating for time-shifting viewers accustomed to fast-forwarding through ads.NBC began its telecasting of the festivities an hour after they begin in Rio on Friday. On the U.S. West Coast, the telecast of the opening ceremony wasnt set to start for another hour. NBC didnt start streaming the event through its app or Olympics website until the television coverage began, and streamers had to authenticate their account with a cable or satellite service.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton says Sundays Scottish Cup semi-final victory over Celtic was not behind Ronny Deilas decision to leave Parkhead. Authentic White Sox Jerseys . The Championship winners won 5-4 on penalties to secure a return to Hampden for the Scottish Cup final against Hibernian on Saturday, May 21.Despite an inept performance by the majority of his players. Hoops boss Deila came in for a barrage of criticism from supporters and pundits alike. The majority were calling for his head and the Norwegian obliged on Wednesday by announcing he will quit the champions-elect in the summer, two years after replacing previous boss Neil Lennon.But Warburton believes most of the criticism aimed at Deila since the weekend defeat has been inappropriate. Warburton and Deila before the Scottish Cup tie at Hampden Speaking ahead of Saturdays Sky Live home game against Alloa, where the Gers will be presented with the Championship trophy, the Englishman said: I dont think for one second that one game was the cause of Ronny leaving Celtic.Ive seen whats happened over the last six to 10 months, the media comments and everything else. I dont think the result would have helped him, obviously, but I was disappointed to see that. I only met Ronny once and he came across as a gentleman, very knowledgeable about football and I liked talking to him.I just said last week that I dont think anyone deserves some of the criticism that he has received from certain individuals.

Paul ONeill Jersey . -- Nebraska receiver Jordan Westerkamp was hospitalized Saturday after suffering an injury in the third quarter of the 15th-ranked Cornhuskers 31-16 win over Illinois.He was later released and no additional information was available about his condition.Westerkamp appeared to absorb a hit to his lower back after catching a 6-yard pass from Tommy Armstrong Jr. on third-and-3 early in Nebraskas 75-yard touchdown drive that used more than 10 minutes of clock to put the Huskers ahead for good.Westerkamp was hospitalized to make sure they checked everything out, coach Mike Riley said after the game.After the reception, his fourth of the game, the senior clutched his back and immediately waved for trainers.

PITTSBURGH -- The phone calls and texts between LeGarrette Blount and LeVeon Bell havent stopped.Not after the embarrassing traffic stop in the summer of 2014 that ended with both running backs being charged with drug possession and -- eventually -- suspensions for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy. Not after the talented but enigmatic Blount walked off the field and ostensibly out of a job when he headed to the locker room with time still on the clock during a Monday night win in Tennessee later that year, a silent protest for a lack of touches on a night Bell ran for 204 yards.Not even this week, with Blount prepping for his first visit to Pittsburgh since the Steelers (4-2) cut him for insubordination when New England (5-1) visits Heinz Field.Hes still one of my closest friends, Bell said. I still talk to him. He watches my game. I watch his. We still critique each other, tell each other what we do good, what we do bad. Hes definitely a good guy.Maybe, though the image of Blount already dressed and practically sprinting for the bus by the time his teammates walked into the visitors locker room in Nashville, remains fresh.Its nothing that you take personally, but football player to football player, thats something you dont do, Steelers linebacker Arthur Moats said.The Steelers cut Blount less than 48 hours later, though the ink on the transaction wasnt even dry when the Patriots asked Blount to come back home.In a way, Blounts performance over the last two years with the Patriots has only validated Blounts assertion that he deserved to be more involved in the game plan. He won a Super Bowl in New England two months after re-signing with New England and is currently seventh in the league in rushing (439 yards) and tied for second in touchdowns (six).And his good friend has noticed.Hes a monster, Blount said. I think hes one of the best running backs in this league. I think hes an underrated guy. I think hell start getting the respect he deserves once hes consistent and on the field a lot.Something that didnt happen nearly enough in 2014. Brought in to serve as a veteran presence behind Bell, Blount ended up seeing his role diminish as Bell became one of the best all-around backs in the league, his potential on full display as he practically carried the Steelers on the back of his No. 26 jersey in a 27-24 escape against the Titans.Obviously he might have been a little frustrated beccause he didnt play as much and being a competitor you want to play, Bell said. Tyson Ross Jersey. But he understood that he kind of made the wrong decision. He wasnt mad at me for the game I had. He just wanted to play and show the team hes able to help contribute.Blounts departure plays in stark contrast to Pittsburghs current backfield setup. Where Blount eventually chafed when left on the sideline, DeAngelo Williams has embraced his role as the 1B to Bells 1A. The all-time leading rusher in Carolina Panthers history has played remarkably well at times when filling in for Bell. Williams even led the NFL in yards rushing through the first two weeks of this season while Bell sat out a suspension.Yet when Bell returned, there was no question about who should top the depth chart.L. Bell is so dynamic when he plays the game that I dont want him to come off the field, Williams said in September.Bell likely wont have much of a choice this week anyway. Williams is out with a knee issue, as is quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, meaning backup Landry Jones will likely rely heavily on Bell to help carry the load. He averaged 25 touches during Roethlisbergers four-game absence in 2015 and earned an admirer eager to get a close-up look on Sunday.When asked about Bells talent, New England coach Bill Belichick uncharacteristically blurted out, Oh, my god.He can do it all, Belichick said. However he gets the ball hes really dangerous.Blount remains plenty dangerous in his own right, though his carries have dipped slightly since Tom Bradys return from his four-game Deflategate suspension. The typically reticent Blount has kept quiet this week, saying hell talk after the game. There may be boos Sunday the first time he takes a handoff from Brady. Just because the Steelers are over Blounts exit doesnt mean the city is, particularly one that doesnt take rejection well.He may have more animosity about it than we do, Moats said. No matter whos lining up there on Sunday, theyre going to have to pay.Game notes In addition to Williams and Roethlisberger, wide receiver Markus Wheaton (shoulder), right tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle) and defensive end Cam Heyward (hamstring) are also out.---Online:AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL coverage on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 NFL Jerseys China China Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Online ' ' '

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Carlos Lee Jersey . -- Ervin Santana plans to give the ball from his 100th career win to his mother. Its a gift thats been a long time coming. Santana pitched seven snappy innings in his seventh attempt to reach the milestone, and the Royals finally gave him enough support in a 7-2 victory over the Houston Astros on Saturday night that also gave Kansas City its fourth consecutive win. "Its a dream come true. Im just very excited for it," Santana said of the win. "Its a long process, a lot of bad outings and a lot of good outings. It feels good to get there." Santana (4-5) entered the game with the worst run support among qualifying pitchers in the American League, a big reason why he already had six fruitless tries to win his 100th game. He finally made thanks to a seemingly endless series of singles and doubles off the Astros Erik Bedard (1-3), who failed to make it through the fifth inning. "Santana pitched good. He was throwing strikes, getting people off balance and getting outs," Bedard said. "On the contrary, when I pitched they got hits and scored runs." Santana allowed five hits in seven innings, striking out six without a walk. The only damage he allowed came on an RBI single by Jose Altuve and a solo homer by Chris Carter. "He was commanding his fastball extremely well, good slider he kept down and on the outside of the plate. Good speed on his breaking ball. But command more than anything else," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "He just looked dominant at times." Kansas City had been averaging 2.68 runs per nine innings in games Santana started, and it hadnt scored more than four runs for him before Saturday night. But the offence has been coming alive in the nine games since Hall of Famer George Brett took over as interim hitting coach. The Royals have put up at least four runs in each of their four wins, and thats no negligible feat: They improved to 20-5 when scoring at least four times. The result of the Royals recently improved production has been just their third four-game winning streak of the year and their first since April 30-May 5. It didnt take long for them to strike Saturday night, either. David Lough led off the game with a single and motored into second when centerfielder Brandon Barnes bobbled the ball. Lough scored on a base hit by Salvador Perez, and he in turn came around on a double by Hosmer that was helped into the left-field corner by some gusting wind. The Royals added three more in the fourth when Bedard put the first five batters on base. The runs came on an RBI single by Miguel Tejada, a runs-scoring double by Jeff Francoeur and a bases-loaded, double-play groundout by Lough that made it 5-0. Kansas City tacked on another in the fifth when Hosmer worked a two-out walk and Lorenzo Cain hit a two-out pitch into the gap in right, knocking Bedard from the game. It was a forgettable 200th career start for the left-hander, who gave up six runs in 4 2-3 innings. It certainly bore little resemblance to his last time out, when Bedard allowed just one run over seven innings in a win over the Angels. "I think Erik, even though he battled, there were some plays that probably should have been made that were not made," Astros manager Bo Porter said. "Make no excuse about it, he battled." Santana had no such trouble against the light-hitting Astros, who only had one hit over the first five innings and didnt push a run across until there were two out in the sixth. Carters homer came in the seventh inning. Otherwise, Santana was in control all night. He struck out at least one in each of the first five innings, and picked up his first victory since beating Cleveland on April 27. "Most of us just found out tonight. A hundred wins, thats unbelievable, man," Hosmer said. "This is a tough league. If you get to 100 wins, that means youve had a long career." Notes: Houston CF Brandon Barnes left in the sixth with tightness in his left hamstring. ... The Astros claimed LHP Wade LeBlanc off waivers from Miami. Manager Bo Porter plans to use him out of the bullpen when he arrives Sunday. ... Royals LF Alex Gordon got his first night off of the season. Hes in a 3-for-30 slump. ... Houston RHP Lucas Harrell goes to the mound in the series finale Sunday against Royals RHP Luis Mendoza. Womens Astros Jerseys .

Today, we look back at Boston Strong - a citys recovery from tragedy. In a viral video released by the European Tour on Friday, world No. 2 Rory McIlroy answered questions from 9-year-old Little Billy on a wide assortment of topics that varied from his decision to skip the Olympics to what golf clubs he might use in 2017.McIlroy, who played along and was a good sport through it all, chuckled at nearly every question tossed his way, sometimes with an uncomfortable awkwardness that lent itself to the authenticity of the session. Some of the playful queries on serious topics included:? If youre so tough, how come youre so scared of a little mosquito? (This came in reference to McIlroy skipping the Rio Olympics in August in part because of the Zika virus scare that has been linked to birth defects in children.) McIlroy replied that he was looking forward to having kids someday and a few people used that excuse and I sort of jumped on the bandwagon.? Whos your favorite girrrrrl tennis player? (McIlroy was expecting to marry former world No. 1 tennis player Caroline Wozniacki before he broke off the engagement in 2014.) After struggling to find an answer, McIlroy conceded, Honestly, Billy, Ive stopped following womens tennis the last couple of years.??Showing a photo of some of McIlroys past hairstyles, Billy asked, What weeeere you thinking? (It was a phase and I should have listened to my dad, came McIlroys response.)? Little Billy told the four-time major champ that he wanted to interview Tiger Woods next. The 9-year-old asked whether McIlroy could put in a good word for him with Woods.Ill put in a good word for you, McIlroy said. Id love to see you interview Tiger. Id love to see that.The youngster followed up by asking whether he should ask Woods for career advice or chat-up (pickup) lines.Chat-up lines, McIlroy said. Hes been pretty successful in both areas, bbut I dont see why you couldnt ask him both questions. Cheap Astros Jerseys. ??In possibly the first time a U.S. president-elect and a former One Direction singer were mentioned in the same sentence, Little Billy posed the question, Who tries the hardest to be your friend, Donald Trump or Niall Horan?They both love golf, McIlroy answered. I think thats a great thing. And because Im good at it, its nice to have a relationship. Id say Trump tried a little harder than Niall did.? With Nike exiting the golf club business and McIlroy a major endorser of the brand, Little Billy asked the Northern Irishman what kind of clubs he should get for Christmas if he wanted ones just like McIlroys next year.McIlroy deftly replied that Santa would know, stopping the kid in his tracks.So what was McIlroy expecting from the cub reporter?It was a lot of fun, McIlroy said Saturday. [I got a call] the week before and [was asked], how close to the bone can we go? And I said, look, I dont mind, you can go as close as you want. Wasnt quite expecting some of the questions that came up, but it was all in good fun.McIlroy, who shot 68 in Round 3 of the DP World Tour Championship, where the interview with Little Billy occurred, scrambled as best he could considering the circumstances.I definitely had to put my thinking hat on a couple of times and try to wiggle out a couple of them as best I could,?McIlroy said.The interview, which aired Friday, ended with Little Billy offering an early wedding gift to McIlroy, who is engaged to American Erica Stoll. When McIlroy opened the box full of socks, he looked at Little Billy with a bemused expression.Just in case you get cold feet again, the 9-year-old said.

Only LeBron James and Michael Jordan have more 30-pt triple-doubles than Russell Westbrook over the last 30 seasons Nike Free 5.0 Mens Black .Y. - Detroit goaltender Jonas Gustavsson has earned NHL first star of the week honours after winning in his first three appearances of the season. Nike Free Run 3 Womens Pink . 10 Texas A&Ms offence dominated as usual against SMU. http://www.nikefreeclearanceoutlet.com/nike-free-rn-sale/nike-free-rn-distance.html . Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0. Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout. Mitchell Marshs hotly-debated LBW on the final day of the Perth Test was correctly tracked from its initial point of impact on the allrounders front toe, the custodians of EagleEye have confirmed. Nike Free Run 5.0 Womens .The decision, which was reversed from Aleem Dars initial verdict of not out due to the widening of the zone in which the stumps can be projected to hit by the ICC earlier this year, was openly questioned by a succession of television commentators and also Australias captain, Steven Smith, who said it was like Kagiso Rabada was bowling leg-spin.The former captain Michael Clarke stated on Channel Nines cricket coverage that he was certain the ball was going down the leg side. I was certain that was missing the stumps, Clarke said. When you look at that replay, I thought it was definitely swinging too far and missing the leg stump.Hell be really disappointed with that. It has clipped his toe, then clipped his pad, and then got onto the bat. But what I dont agree with is the line of the delivery once the ball hits him on the toe ... I believe the line of that delivery is going down and missing leg stump.Similar sentiments were echoed by Clarkes predecessor Ricky Ponting, while another former captain in Mark Taylor - until recently a member of the ICC cricket committee that has long advocated the use of the DRS and ball-tracking - offered his own criticism of the projection.However Ian Taylor, head of the New Zealand company Animation Research that provides EagleEye for Nines broadcast, told ESPNcricinfo that the tracking used for Marshs dismissal had been reviewed and not found to be in error, either in terms of the projection reached or the process used to get there.I talked to my guys [in Perth] and we talked to the ICC and showed the process we went through, and were happy with it, Taylor said. They had a really good pitching point off the pitch, and a really good contact point on the shoe, it wasnt on the pad. They felt confident they could extrapolate from those two points to make the prediction.They have the choice there of saying they think there was insufficient data, but they saw it really clearly and it didnt continue out on that line [down leg], it hit the foot right in front of middle stump. We saw the impact on the toe before anyone else did, and we saw the impact on the toe with our four ccameras, and our guys confirmed it with the HotSpot guys sitting with them. Nike Free 5.0 Flyknit Mens. Thats where the projection was made, the line from the bounce to the foot, to the stumps.Taylor offered an open invitation to any sceptical commentators, officials or even umpires to visit the technology operators and see things for themselves - not unlike the process by which the BCCI recently approved the use of ball-tracking as part of the DRS, a system to be used in the just-begun Test series between India and England.What surprises me is so many people can make a call straight away with just seeing the replay from the end-on view, when were going through four super slo-mo cameras and HotSpot, Taylor said. That was the process they went through. I fully respect the guys who spent their whole careers out in the middle, its an instinct they have and that umpires have.We definitely dont dismiss that and we take very seriously the views of those people. Our doors were open to all of the commentators to come down at lunchtime - we had people wait there because we thought someone might. Weve also re-affirmed to the ICC and all the umpires as well that the door is always open, come on down and talk it through so we all learn from it.Technology operators have advocated for some time that either the third umpire or an ICC-accredited official sit alongside those working HotSpot, EagleEye/HawkEye or other devices to provide clearer lines of accountability.The issue for us is if we did this properly with a third umpire who was trained and there [with the technology operators], he could have made the call that my guys made, he said. Thats what we talk about - heres all the information weve got, and you make a call whether you want us to project this on or not, because youre an umpire.The argument we have about a third umpire or ICC-accredited person who sits with our guys, the third umpire sitting up in the box does not know whats going on down in our room. Whos talking, what were seeing, what were looking at, what were replaying and what our thought process is. Weve always argued if we had a fully qualified person from the ICC sitting in that room with everybody, we would go with that.
