CORK, Ireland -- Mikko Ilonen of Finland carded a course-record 7-under-par 64 while crowd favourite Rory McIlroy finished 10 shots behind in the first round of the Irish Open on Thursday. Will Middlebrooks Jersey . Ilonen birdied five of his closing seven holes in superb scoring conditions to end the day with a two-shot lead on the Fota Island course. Ilonen had just 26 putts on the occasion of his 300th European Tour event. It added up to a record on a course made over since the last Irish Open at Fota Island in 2002. The Finn, a three-time winner on tour, wasnt surprised at the fifth course record in his career. "I lost out in a playoff to Sergio (Garcia) in the Qatar Masters this year, and recently in the Nordea Masters I felt my game was good despite finishing 32nd, which is still a mystery how I finished 32nd that week as I was hitting my best shots of the week there," Ilonen said. "Maybe the good golf is there but then we still have a long way to go." Tied for second on 5 under were Germanys Marcel Siem and the Swedish pair of Robert Karlsson and Magnus Carlsson. McIlroy hit just eight of the 14 fairways and took 30 putts in a round of 3-over 74. Hes in a lowly share of 125th place in the 156-player field. "Ive still got a little bit of jet lag, for sure, coming from the U.S. Open," he said. "I wasnt able to do much the Monday, Tuesday, because the clubs didnt arrive until yesterday, as well, so that was a little bit frustrating more than anything else. "But I did a really good practice session on the range last night after the pro-am, and was feeling good going out this morning. However, I just couldnt really put it together as I was very sloppy with the scoring clubs, wedges, the short game, the putting. All that was just a little off. "Hopefully, that is my poor round for the week." Tyson Ross Jersey . Each day, TSN.ca provides the latest rumours, reports and speculation from around the NHL beat. Keeping The Captain? Brian Giontas agent Steve Bartlett told La Presse on Tuesday that the Montreal Canadiens want to keep their captain - an unrestricted free agent on July 1 - in the fold, while sources tell the paper that the two sides will start talks this week. Delino DeShields Jersey . The 55th-ranked Istomin saved 11 of 14 break points to win in just over two hours, setting up a second round meeting with Australian Marinko Matosevic. It was the Uzbeks third win in three matches against fifth-seeded Kohlschreiber, the 2007 and 2012 tournament winner.Graham DeLaet was out on the practice range working on his game on Monday morning, preparing for his first U.S. Open. Its almost hard to believe that the player ranked 32nd in the world, who has earned more than $2 million this year, dazzled at last years Presidents Cup and has 16 top-10 finishes in the last three years, is just now completing the career slam - in terms of playing them, that is. Sometimes we forget that as good as he is, hes still relatively young in terms of being at the elite level. His talent exceeds his experience at this point of his career, which isnt necessarily a bad thing. Still, he does know a good course when he sees one. Having toured around the back nine at the famed No. 2 course here at Pinehurst, DeLaet quickly pronounced it to be a favourite. "It automatically went into my top 10 of all time," said the lone Canadian entrant in the American championship this year. "Its a great test, its an awesome old-style golf course and its going to be a lot of fun." Fun? The U.S. Open? Yep, this is definitely his maiden voyage in this tournament. While he hasnt been playing it, DeLaet, of course, has been an avid viewer of the American championship, and he knows that unlike most of the past, oh, 50 or 60, U.S. Opens, this year there is no long, punishing rough lining the fairways. Instead, Pinehurst has been returned to its original design, thanks to Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, with scruffy waste areas full of wiregrass bushes on the borders of the short grass. Its something that DeLaet says could prove to be a bit of a lottery for those who stray from the fairway. "This is my first U.S. Open but Ive watched in on TV for years," he said, "and its always been the deep rough and this year there is no rough at all. But the waste area or whatever you call it, sometimes you can get in there and have a pretty clear shot and get a lot of club on it and you can get in there and have a lot of bad breaks as well." DeLaet believes that hitting it into the scruffy section - officially, native areas - will give you about a 50 per cent chance of having a good lie. You might bee able to play the shot like a fairway bunker or you might end up behind a tuft of grass that will mean chipping out sideways. Yu Darvish Jersey. The frustration levels could rise significantly if a player gets enough of the bad lies. DeLaet knows that too will be a big part of surviving the week, keeping his patience at an even level and trying to survive the mental test that is a big part of this event. Along with the predicted high temperatures, it will be a tough task for any player to keep their minds focused at all times. While DeLaet is working on his mental side, his physical appears to be in order. He was forced to miss the Memorial two weeks ago with a sore leg, something he now feels is on the mend. "I just kind of had a strained tendon on the outside of my right foot," he stated. "It wasnt extremely painful or anything like that but I just knew if I kept playing - and walking on uneven slopes is the worst for it. And Memorial unfortunately is up and down. I mean thats one of my favourite golf courses and I love that tournament and I have good vibes going in there. It killed me to miss that tournament but I knew for the rest of the year I had to be smart and I just didnt make it worse and over the last couple of weeks with some rest, it has gotten a lot better." While this has been a good year for the Saskatchewan native, he has been in search of more consistency on the greens. In the second round of the Players, he switched to a left-hand-low putting grip that he was practicing with on Monday, under the watchful eye of short game coach Gabriel Hjertstedt. Its just one more little thing he hopes will unlock the mystery that is putting. DeLaet is also hoping that he can bring his game around in a big event. While hes posted six top-10s this year, including consecutive runner-up finishes at Torrey Pines and Phoenix, he missed the cut in both the Masters and the Players. Its understandable as he adjusts to tougher set-ups and deeper fields, but this is where he wants to perform, this is where he wants to be contending.

BUFFALO, N. Phil Simms Jersey .Y. -- First, Ryan Miller. Now, Pat LaFontaine. A day after trading their star goalie to St. Louis, the Buffalo Sabres lost another face of their franchise after LaFontaine abruptly resigned as president of hockey operations on Saturday a little more than three months after being brought in to provide a new direction to the NHLs last-place team. The Sabres announced the decision in a news release issued after speculation had been raised of a potential front-office shake-up involving LaFontaine. "I would like to thank Pat for all he has done for the organization," Sabres owner Terry Pegula said in the release. "Pat joined us at a very difficult time, and helped transition the organization down a new path." The Sabres said LaFontaine would be returning to his previous role working with the National Hockey League. LaFontaine had been working with the league on player safety issues before being hired by the Sabres in mid-November. The former Sabres captains arrival was hailed as a major turning point for a struggling team. LaFontaine took over following a change in the front office during which general manager Darcy Regier and coach Ron Rolston were dismissed following the Sabres 4-15-1 start. LaFontaines first move was hiring former Sabres coach Ted Nolan to take over as coach on an interim basis for the remainder of the season. LaFontaines next step came in January, when he hired Tim Murray as general manager. "Terry Pegula hired me in November, and my primary objective was to lead the Sabres organization through a time of transition," LaFontaine said in the Sabres release. "Im proud of what weve been able to accomplish in a short period of time, and want to thank Terry and Kim Pegula for the opportunity and their support during my time with the Sabres." LaFontaines resignation still comes as a major surprise. In January, LaFontaine talked openly about how he would use his connections to USA Hockey in a bid to lure national and international events to Buffalo. He leaves a day after Murray made his first big splash by trading star goalie Ryan Miller and captain Steve Ott to the St. Louis Blues. In exchange, the Sabres acquired goalie Jaroslav Halak, forward Chris Stewart, prospect William Carrier, a 2015 first-round pick and a conditional 2016 third-round pick in a deal reached in advance of the NHL trade deadline on Wednesday. The Sabres (18-34-8) had the day off on Saturday, and return to practice on Sunday before travelling to play at Dallas on Monday. They remain in last place, but are enjoying their first three-game winning streak following a 4-2 win over the San Jose Sharks on Friday. This is not the first time LaFontaine has abruptly stepped down as an NHL team executive. In July 2006, LaFontaine quit the New York Islanders a little over a month after being brought in to serve as senior adviser to owner Charles Wang. In Buffalo, LaFontaines absence was notable this week once the team returned to the ice following the leagues Olympic break. He was not spotted in the press box during the Sabres three-game homestand that began with a 3-2 win over Carolina on Tuesday. That was unusual because LaFontaine had previously spent time watching games from the press-box level in Pegulas box, alongside Murray and several of the owners associates. LaFontaine also missed the teams "Power Play Luncheon" for fans on Friday, when he was scheduled to speak along with fellow former Sabres greats Gilbert Perreault, Rene Robert and Danny Gare. The crowd was informed LaFontaine had the flu. The Sabres have become a top-heavy organization since Regiers dismissal. Pegula created the position of president of hockey operations to hire LaFontaine. And Pegula did so only after LaFontaine declined a chance to become the GM by saying he didnt think he had enough experience for that job. Along with hiring Murray, the Sabres also brought in Hockey Hall of Fame member and long-time executive Craig Patrick to serve as a special adviser. LaFontaine backed the hiring of Murray and Patrick, by referring to both as his "wingers." He also discussed how important it was for him to be building a front-office team that could work together in rebuilding a team that has missed the playoffs in each of the past two seasons, and not won a playoff round since reaching the 2007 Eastern Conference finals. Its not clear what effect LaFontaines departure will have on the teams short-term future, including Nolans status. Murray said this week hes already had discussions with Nolan about extending his contract beyond this season. Brad Wing Jersey . CEO Steve Koonin on Tuesday told the Hawks flagship radio station that he made the decision to discipline Ferry but allowed him to keep his job managing the team. He did not say what the punishment was, but noted that he relied on a law firms three-month investigation of Ferry and him describing Deng as someone who has a little African in him. Landon Collins Jersey .

Texas outscored the Hawkeyes 47-27 after halftime and will play California on Friday night for the events title. Isaiah Taylor chipped in 15 points, Javan Felix added 11 and the Longhorns (3-0) held Iowa to 29.6 percent shooting. Aaron White scored a game-high 23 points for the Hawkeyes (2-1), though 14 came at the foul line. Iowa jumped out to a 13-2 lead less than five minutes in thanks to the Longhorns missing five of their first six shots and turning the ball over on three straight possessions. The Hawkeyes took a 30-24 advantage into the locker room, but Texas turned things around quickly. Holmes scored eight ppoints in the first two minutes alone, then made a 3- pointer shortly afterward that gave the Longhorns a 39-37 lead. Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey. Though the Hawkeyes never led again, they did pull even at 43-43 before a 13-0 run by Texas turned the tide for good. Holmes scored five points during the six-plus minute stretch, and Taylor netted the final four. With under six minutes to play, Felix beat the shot clock with a straightaway 3-pointer to give Texas a 63-48 lead, and it was smooth sailing for the Big 12 representatives from there. Game Notes Iowa outscored Texas at the free throw line 21-11 ... Texas assisted on only 10 of its 27 field goals ... Both programs won their opening two games of the season by an average of over 30 points ...

When Russias Anton Gafarov crashed and broke a ski during a semifinal heat in the mens cross-country sprint, Wadsworth was right there to help. Gafarov was clearly out of the race, but still wanted to finish in front of the home crowd. But his ski was too badly damaged in the crash and he took another tumble into the snow. Thats when Wadsworth went to help. The Canadian coach ran onto the slope, spare ski in hand, and quickly fastened it to Gafarovs boot, drawing a cheer from the crowd. Though the Russian was three minutes behhind his competitors, he still finished the race thanks to the Canadian coachs help. Jordan Richards Jersey. It brought back memories of the 2006 Olympics in Torino, when Norwegian coach Bjornar Haakensmoen helped out Canadian cross-country skier Sara Renner in the team sprint event. Renner broke her ski pole halfway through the race, and Haakensmoen provided her with a new one. Ironically, the move prevented Norway from winning a medal in the event, as Renner and Beckie Scott won silver, while the Norwegians finished in fourth. As a token of their appreciation, fans across Canada donated five tonnes of maple syrup to Haakensmoen as a thank you gift. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

VANCOUVER - Vancouver Whitecaps forward Kekuta Manneh voted Major League Soccers player of the week after becoming the youngest player in league history to score a hat trick. Tommy Joseph Jersey . Manneh scored three goals in Vancouvers 4-1 road win in Seattle on Wednesday. The hat trick was also the first in club history.

In the 42nd minute, Young-Pyo Lee collected a loose ball in the Whitecaps half and sent it down the sideline to Camilo Sanvezzo, who deftly passed it to Manneh in the centre of the field. Manneh ran past the defence and fired a low shot under Gspurning. He completed the hat trick in the 54th minute when he combined with Daigo Kobayashi at the top of the penalty area and beat Gspurning.

New York Islanders owner Charles Wang is talking to potential buyers about selling the majority of stakes in the NHL franchise, TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie reported late Thursday night. Martin Perez Jersey . The franchise loses an estimated $10 million per season and it has been reported that Wang and the Islanders face a $75 million loan repayment at the end of this season. Wang has been the Islanders majority stakeholder since 2004, when he bought out the share of business partner Sanjay Kumar. In the nine seasons with the team, the Islanders have only advanced to the postseason twice and havent won a playoff round. The Islanders are slated to move to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for the start of the 2015-16 season after Wang wasnt able to cut a deal with Nassau County for a new arena. Carlos Gomez Jersey .

PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota Wild paid a hefty price last season to pry Jason Pominville away from the Buffalo Sabres in a trade. They paid an even bigger one to keep him. The Wild signed Pominville to a five-year, $28 million extension Thursday, ensuring that the versatile forward will not become a free agent after the season. The Star Tribune of Minneapolis first reported the terms of the deal, which came hours before the Wild opened the regular season against the Los Angeles Kings. "We can say that this is home now," Pominville told reporters at the teams morning skate. Needing a boost to their grind-it-out offence last season, Wild GM Chuck Fletcher made the bold move of parting with two of the franchises top young players -- goalie Matt Hackett and forward Johan Larsson -- along with a future first-round pick and a second-round pick to get the 2012 All-Star from the Sabres. Pominville had four goals and five assists in just 10 games during the regular season for the Wild before a concussion put him on the shelf. He played sparingly in the teams first-round playoff loss to Chicago, but was healthy andd sharp during his action with the team this preseason. Ferguson Jenkins Jersey. . The signing only increases the expectations for a team that was no doubt disappointed by the one-and-done appearance in the post-season last year. Wild owner Craig Leipold has now committed significant money to defenceman Ryan Suter, forward Zach Parise and Pominville, all with the idea that this team will become a force in the newly aligned Central Division. "You see some of the players were starting to attract, some of the young players that are coming in, its very promising," Wild coach Mike Yeo said to reporters at Xcel Energy Center. "And more importantly, when you have a player like that who makes the commitment to stay with the organization, that shows, No. 1, that they believe youre going in the right direction and they want to be part of it." Pominville had stated that he wanted to get the deal done before the season began so the issue didnt linger while he was playing. "Were fortunate to get it done and hopefully we can add some more pieces to the puzzle to make it even better," Pominville said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

ST. Ryan Ramczyk Jersey . PETERSBURG – The Blue Jays welcomed nine new faces – okay, some of them returning and not so new – to the clubhouse in time for Tuesdays series opener against the Rays and out of that group, the homegrown prospect offered up the best line about being called up. "When I called my sister – she doesnt know anything about baseball – shes like, What does this mean? Are you going to play with that Lawrie guy," said Dalton Pompey. It used to be that Pompey, a 21-year-old outfielder and a Mississauga native, needed only to jump in the family car for a ride down to Rogers Centre where, as a boy, he would watch his childhood heroes Carlos Delgado and Vernon Wells ply their trades. The route to the Rogers Centre as a big league ballplayer has been, not surprisingly, more circuitous. Pompey was drafted out of high school in the 16th round of the 2010 draft. That selection slot, in and of itself, suggested there would be no guarantees. Yet, as he grew up and he progressed up the minor league chain, Pompey continued to get better. He split 2012 in three Single-A locations: Rookie League Bluefield, Short-A Vancouver and Lansing. Combined, he hit .286 with an .804 OPS. Pompey spent all of 2013 with Lansing, hitting .261/.358/.394. It was at this time when Pompeys speed game became a factor; he swiped 38 bases for the Lugnuts. This year, on a similar track to one of his fellow call ups, left-hander Daniel Norris, Pompey rocketed through three levels, beginning at High-A Dunedin, stopping at Double-A New Hampshire and concluding with a cup of coffee at Triple-A Buffalo. He hit .317 and posted an OPS of .861 overall and almost hit at least .300 at all three stops. His .295 mark at New Hampshire was the result of a slow start following his promotion to Double-A. General manager Alex Anthopoulos, usually able to pinpoint reasons for a players progress, was stumped as to why it has quickly come together for Pompey. He did offer high praise. "Id love to tell you there is something I could point to," said Anthopoulos. "I saw him in Dunedin. I saw him in New Hampshire, obviously in Triple-A. Hes the kind of player you have to watch a lot. He doesnt do anything that jumps off the page at the outset but he does everything well. The one thing is hell consistently give you a quality at-bat, no matter what level we continued to move him. He still has some things to work on, maybe tighten up some things defensively. That will just come from reps. Hes one of the few guys who is extremely selective at the plate. He really does profile as a top of the order guy." Pompey spoke of a maturation process common for any young player who, as they say, figures it out. "I think it was mentally, just showing up every day and trying to be as consistent as possible with my approach, and learning what type of player that I am and that I need to be to be successful," said Pompey. "Also, just trying to help my teammates. When I try to help my team, I end up helping myself. It took me pretty far this year." If Pompeys selection comes as a surprise, it shouldnt. The Blue Jays had to add him to the 40-man roster at some point to prevent exposing him in Decembers Rule 5 Draft. Norris, 21, has pitched so well this year that he finds himself in the future-of-the-starting-rotation conversation with Aaron Sanchez, Marcus Stroman and Drew Hutchison. After posting a 1.22 ERA in 13 starts with Single-A Dunedin and appearing in the Florida State League All-Star Game in June, Norris was promoted to New Hampshire. Despite a 4.54 ERA in eight starts with the Fisher Cats, the Jays saw enough from the left-hander to give him a shot with Buffalo. There, in four starts and five appearances, Norris posted a 3.18 ERA. What stands out is Norris strike out ability. Hes set down 10.7 hitters per nine innings over the course of his professional baseball career. He makes guys swing and miss. "I feel that if you get ahead in the count, 0-2, 1-2, or whenever you have two strikes, theres no point in trying to throw something to put in play or theyll foul off, so just go right at em and put him away," said Norris. "Youve earned the right to punch em out. Not that I pitch for strikeouts. Sometimes they just happen. But if you get there theres no point in getting into a seven, eight, nine-pitch at-bat, which sometimes I had a tendency to do." Norris has tossed 124 2/3 innings this season, which represents an increase of about 35-percent over his total for 2013. That, typically, is the year-over-year limit for the Blue Jays when dealing with a valued prospect. However, Anthopoulos suggested theres wiggle room. "I think the innings limits that get talked about are a little bit overblown. No one has a scientific formula where people say 20-percent, 30-percent, 20 innings, 30 innings, you can pitch four innings and have a 100 pitch outing or you could be another guy who throws eight innings and throw 85 and the four inning outing is much more taxing than the eight inning outing," said Anthopoulos. "We combine all those things. The fact that its an extra month for some of these guys; some of the limits theyve had before is over a five-month period, now were stretching it out into a sixth. I think the big thing for us is we do watch the total workload but its really the recovery and the rest in between thats more important to us." Joining Pompey and Norris as call ups are Sean Nolin, whos getting his second major league look after one appearance in May, 2013; Anthony Gose; Ryan Goins; and pitcher Kendall Graveman. Brandon Morrow was activated off the 60-day disabled list. He missed four months with a torn tendon sheath in his right index finger. Hell be used as a reliever. Dan Johnson comes off the 15-day disabled list. Hed been out since July 31 with a left hamstring strain. George Kottaras, a 31-year-old veteran whos played for six big league teams, joins the club as the third catcher. The native of Scarborough was signed to a minor league contract on August 10 after his release from the St. Louis Cardinals. LAWRIES SEASON OVER Given the nature of his oblique injury, it comes as no surprise that both general manager Alex Anthopoulos and manager John Gibbons confirmed on Tuesday that Brett Lawries season is finished. "Theres just not enough time," said Gibbons. "Where hes at, trying to build up, nowhere to go to play games. Continue his rehab and get ready for spring training." From the start of 2012, Lawries first full season in the big leagues, to the end of 2014, Lawrie will have appeared in only 62-percent of Torontos games (302 of 486). Hes missed time in each of the past three seasons due to an oblique injury. There have been a variety of other ailments as well. Vonn Bell Jersey . The seventh-ranked Berdych wants to focus on the ATP Tour after helping the Czechs beat the Netherlands in the first round. Seeking their third straight Davis Cup title, the Czechs will rely again on veteran Radek Stepanek. Chase Daniel Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. The collision was as common as any in racing. Kevin Ward Jr.s car spun twice like a top, wheels hugging the wall, before it plopped backward on the dimly lit dirt track. In a sport steeped with bravado, what happened next was another familiar, but treacherous, move: Wearing a black firesuit and black helmet, the 20-year-old Ward unbuckled himself, climbed out of the winged car into the night and defiantly walked onto the track at Canandaigua Motorsports Park. He gestured, making his disgust evident with the driver who triggered the wreck with a bump: three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart, who continues to race in sprint cars on dirt tracks. Many NASCAR drivers, including Stewart, got their start on the short ovals. Ward, a relative unknown compared to NASCARs noted swashbuckler, was nearly hit by another passing car as he pointed with his right arm in Stewarts direction. As he confronted Stewart in his passing car, disaster struck. Ward was standing to the right of Stewarts familiar No. 14 car, which seemed to fishtail from the rear and hit him. According to video and witness accounts, Ward was sucked underneath the car and hurtled through the air before landing on his back as fans looked on in horror. Ward was killed. Stewart, considered one of the most proficient drivers in racing, dropped out of Sundays NASCAR race at Watkins Glen, hours after Saturdays crash. And the sport was left reeling from a tragedy that could have ripple effects from the biggest stock car series down to weeknight dirt track racing. "There arent words to describe the sadness I feel about the accident that took the life of Kevin Ward Jr.," Stewart said in a statement. There was no immediate decision if Stewart would drive in this weekends NASCAR race at Michigan International Speedway. Stewart "will have as much time as he needs to make that decision," spokesman Mike Arning said Monday. "It is still an emotional time for all involved, Tony included. He is grieving, and grief doesnt have a timetable." Arning said Stewarts extra-curricular racing plans are on hold until further notice. Plymouth Speedway in Warsaw, Indiana, said on its website that Stewart would no longer compete in Saturdays race. Canandaigua Speedway promoter Jeremie Corcoran said Monday the track has cancelled Wednesdays event to give "my family, staff, fans, and racing teams time to grieve and process all that has occurred." Authorities questioned the 43-year-old Stewart once on Saturday night and went to Watkins Glen to talk to him again Sunday. They described him as "visibly shaken" after the crash and said he was co-operative. On Sunday, Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero said that investigators also dont have any evidence at this point in the investigation to support criminal intent. But he also said that criminal charges have not been ruled out. Povero said on Monday there were no plans "at this time" to talk to Stewart again. There is no timetable as to when the investigation will conclude or autopsy results will be finished, he said. The crash raised several questions: Will Wards death cause drivers to think twice about on-track confrontations? Did Stewart try and send hhis own message by buzzing Ward, only to have his risky move turn fatal? Or did Ward simply take his life into his own hands by stepping into traffic in a black firesuit on a dark track? The only one who may have that answer is Stewart. Adrian Peterson Jersey. David Weinsten, a former state and federal prosecutor in Miami who is now in private practice, said it would be difficult to prove criminal intent. "I think even with the video, its going to be tough to prove that this was more than just an accident and that it was even culpable negligence, which he shouldve known or shouldve believed that by getting close to this guy, that it was going to cause the accident," he said. The sheriff renewed a plea for spectators to turn over photos and videos of the crash. Investigators were reconstructing the accident and looking into everything from the dim lighting on a portion of the track to how muddy it was, as well as if Wards dark firesuit played a role in his death, given the conditions. Driver Cory Sparks, a friend of Wards, was a few cars back when Ward was killed. "The timing was unsafe," he said of Wards decision to get out of his car to confront Stewart. "When your adrenaline is going, and youre taken out of a race, your emotions flare." Its often just a part of racing. Drivers from mild-mannered Jeff Gordon to Danica Patrick have erupted in anger on the track at another driver. The confrontations are part of the sports allure: Fans love it and cheer wildly from the stands. Stewart, who has a reputation for being a hothead nicknamed "Smoke," once wound up like a pitcher and tossed his helmet like a fastball at Matt Kenseths windshield. "Ive seen it many times in NASCAR, where a driver will confront the other one, and a lot of times theyll try to speed past them. And thats what it appeared to me as if what Tony Stewart did, he tried to speed past Ward," witness Michael Messerly said. "And the next thing I could see, I didnt see Ward any more. It just seemed like he was suddenly gone." The crash also raised questions about whether Stewart will continue with his hobby of racing on small tracks on the side of the big-money NASCAR races. He has long defended his participation in racing on tracks like the one where the crash happened, even as accidents and injury have put his day job in NASCAR at risk. Saturdays crash came almost exactly a year after Stewart suffered a compound fracture to his right leg in a sprint car race in Iowa. The injury cost him the second half of the NASCAR season and sidelined him during the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship. Stewart only returned to sprint track racing last month. The crash site is the same track where Stewart was involved in a July 2013 accident that seriously injured a 19-year-old driver. He later took responsibility for his car making contact with another and triggering the 15-car accident that left Alysha Ruggles with a compression fracture in her back. "Everybody has hobbies," he said last month, adding that "there are a lot of other things I could be doing that are a lot more dangerous and a lot bigger waste of time with my time off do than doing that." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

CHICAGO - Dwane Casey wouldnt point fingers at Rudy Gay, fact is he didnt have to. Jared Goff Jersey . The product, even after four games, speaks for itself. The Raptors are a better team without Gay in their lineup. The Raptors have won three of four games since agreeing to move Gay to the Sacramento Kings in last weeks seven-player deal. With Gay the team recorded 20 or more assists in three of 18 games this season, collecting 17.3 per contest, last in the NBA. Without him theyve accomplishment that feat in three of four outings, averaging 23.0 dimes. Tasked with replacing a 20-point scorer, working three - soon-to-be four - new players into his lineup and managing a locker room filled with uncertainty as the trade winds continue to swirl, Casey has his team playing its best basketball of the campaign. Asked if that surprises him, in light of the situation he finds himself in, Casey responded bluntly, "No." Then he hedged, because what else is he supposed to say? "Its nothing to do with Rudy whatsoever," Casey continued, after Toronto recorded a season-best 26 assists, defeating the Bulls 99-77 in the second night of a back-to-back on the road. "I think the pieces fit more, from that respect, it has nothing to do with Rudy personally." It has everything to do with Rudy. The departed Raptors forward was taking more shots than he has before, missing more than hes missed before while averaging the fewest assists (2.2) of the 15 NBA players who hoist 17 or more shots a night. His absence has freed this team. Somehow, in spite of the continued trade speculation that has cast a shadow over their heads, they are winning and having fun in the process. For the first time this season, theyre playing as a team. "Im trying to set up everybody else and get them in a rhythm," said DeMar DeRozan, who had 15 points to go along with another four assists, hes accumulated 22 since the trade. "Once we do that everybody begins to play together because itll be fun and everything seems to be easier. Even though a lot of guys dont know the offence everyone on this team knows how to play, especially the new guys." "It was a team effort totally and its fun when you play like that," newcomer Greivis Vasquez chimed in, adding six dimes off the bench in his second game with the Raptors. "Its fun when the ball is moving and were playing great team defence. Ive only been here a week and I can tell all these guys have my back, and thats huge." Their unselfish play appears to be contagious. DeRozan - who Casey said is playing "like an old man," on account of his improved court awareness - has taken advantage of his new role in the offence, acting as the teams quarterback, a role Gay could never or would never accept. Casey is getting 48 minutes of competent point guard play from Vasquez and Kyle Lowry, whose trade value continues to go up as he produces at a high level. Even sophomore Terrence Ross - averaging less than an assist per game as a pro - contributed a career-best four helpers. With wire-to-wire victories on consecutive nights, the Raptors havent trailed in eight quarters of basketball. Unlike Fridays win over the woeful 76ers - the NBAs worst defensive club - Saturdays dismantling of the Bulls was impressive enough to take notice. Despite their recent struggles, having lost 10 of 13, the Bulls defence is and will remain elite, even without the injured Derrick Rose. Toronto shot 48 per cent from the field, holding the hosting Bulls to just 36 per cent while outscoring them 26-11 in the final quarter to seal an impressive victory, their second straight on the road. "Last time we played them they got the best of us and we knew we couldnt come here and come out soft," DeRozan said, referring to the Bulls dominant victory in Toronto last month, a game in which he matched his career-high with 37 points. "We had to jump on them out the gate and keep our foot on their neck." The effort was indeed of the complete team variety. Jonas Valanciunas came out with an edge facing and ultimately outplaying all-star Joakim Noah and Amir Johnson turned in another productive outing. With a retooled second unit, playing in its second game together, the starters actually had some help. Vasquez, Patrick Patterson and John Salmons combined for 26 points and eight assists, turning the ball over just once playing the bulk of the minutes off Torontos bench. "We have the bodies, we were deeper tonight and the guys contributed," Lowry said. "This is the first time I played less minutes in a long time and that is a testament to the guys coming off the bench." "[The starters] know they dont have to play 40-plus minutes," Casey stated. "They know they have a strong bench behind them so that kind of gives them comfort to really turn on the gas." With an off-day Sunday and a couple days of practice, the new-look Raptors could actually be more in tune with one another when they host the Bobcats on Wednesday. "I just like the whole atmosphere, man," Vasquez said with a big smile on his face. "Ive missed this. This is real team basketball. Everybodys sharing, everybodys talking, nobody cares whos going to have the most points at the end of the night and thats what I see on the court. Im just happy but Im not satisfied. Weve got to keep playing, weve got to keep getting better." Todd Gurley II Jersey . The freestyle skier from Calgary finished sixth in the qualification round with a total of 82.00 points. Groenewoud won a silver medal at the X Games last month, just over five weeks after undergoing double knee surgery. Rob Havenstein Jersey . - The Denver Broncos kept rookie wide receiver Tavarres King from joining the Green Bay Packers by promoting him to their active roster Tuesday. ST. LOUIS -- Antti Niemi thinks the San Jose Sharks have finally found the key to beating the St. Louis Blues. Its all about familiarity. "It took a while, but now we know how they play and thats whats made us better against them," Niemi said. "Were feeling comfortable when we face them." Niemi made 20 saves and Joe Pavelski scored the first of three straight San Jose goals to lead the Sharks to a 4-2 victory Tuesday night. San Jose completed a season sweep of the Blues, winning all three games by a combined 16-7. "Its really good to get the three wins against a tough team," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. "A lot of different variables went into the three nights. Fortunately for us, we got the (six) points." St. Louis, which got goals from Kevin Shattenkirk and Jay Bouwmeester, had won six of seven against San Jose entering this season. But the Sharks have turned it around, winning 6-3 and 6-2 in the first two meetings. Matt Irwin, Brent Burns and Marty Havlat added goals for the Sharks, who led 3-0 after 22 minutes. Niemi improved to 18-6-6. He held off the Blues when they had a 6-on-4 skating advantage in the closing 2 minutes. "This was big for us," Niemi said. "We got in front, then reset our game and got the win." The Blues were playing their third game in four nights. San Jose had been in St. Louis since Sunday after losing in Nashville on Saturday. "Theyre a really good team and they could have been a little tired," Sharks centre Joe Thornton said. "We started fast and we played good enough to win." The Sharks jumped to a 2-0 first-period lead on goals by Pavelski and Irwin in a span of 2:56. Both came from close range on rebounds of missed shots that caromed off the end boards. Pavelski scored hiss 13th after a miss by Havlat, and Irwin jumped on a misfire from Justin Braun for his first of the season. Nolan Cromwell Jersey. St. Louis goalie Jaroslav Halak gave up three goals on the first 12 shots and fell to 16-6-2. Halak has allowed 14 goals in his last five starts, 10 in the first period. "Tonight, it starts with me," he said. "I need to do a better job. We just need to play better, thats the bottom line." The Blues climbed to 3-2 on Bouwmeesters goal with 24.2 seconds left in the second period, but Havlat pounced on a rebound with 11:41 left in the game to make it 4-2. "The fourth one was tough. It was kind of like a dagger," Shattenkirk said. "Because we felt like we were moving in the right direction." San Jose snapped a season-high, four-game road losing streak with a solid effort. "A win is a win and were going to take that," McLellan said. "I havent seen anybody play a perfect game this year. We let the momentum get away on us. But in the third period, I thought we went out there and re-established it." NOTES: San Jose has outscored its opponents 44-15 in the first period this season. .... Blues coach Ken Hitchcock celebrated his 62nd birthday. ... St. Louis C David Backes missed his first game since Jan. 25, 2010, a string of 274 successive regular-season appearances. He sustained an upper-body injury in a collision with Ottawa C Colin Greening on Monday. Backes, who has 16 goals and 14 assists in 32 games, is expected to be out at least a week. ... The Blues were also without LWs Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Sobotka, who missed the game with upper-body injuries. Backes, Schwartz and Sobotka have combined for 29 goals and 38 assists. ... The Sharks are 0 for 16 on the power play over their last seven road games. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
