Peter Budaj will start in goal tonight when the Montreal Canadiens host the Ottawa Senators in Game 5 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal. Ryan Kerrigan Redskins Jersey . Listen to all the action live on TSN Radio 690, beginning at 7pm et/4pm pt. The club announced that goaltender Carey Price, who suffered a lower body injury at the end of regulation in Game 4, will be out for the remainder of the series. Budaj was 8-1-1 in the regular season with a 2.29 goals-against average and .908 save percentage. He replaced Price for the overtime period in their 3-2 loss Tuesday night in Ottawa - facing shots and allowing the game-winning goal by Kyle Turris. "I am confident in Peter Budaj," head coach Michel Therrien told reporters after the morning skate. "Every time we needed him, he performed well." Robert Mayer, who was called up by the Canadiens from the AHLs Hamilton Bulldogs at the start of the playoffs, will serve as the backup. The Canadiens announced Wednesday that captain Brian Gionta - who missed Game 2 and Game 4 - would miss the rest of the playoffs with a torn biceps tendon. He is to undergo surgery on Friday. Forwards Ryan White, Brandon Prust and Lars Eller are also out with injuries. Forward Max Pacioretty will return to the lineup, while forward Michael Blunden is expected to draw in for his first career playoff game. The seventh-seeded Senators enter Game 5 with a 3-1 edge in the series. Ottawa earned a split at Montreals Bell Centre to begin the best-of-seven set before taking the last two meetings on home ice. The Canadiens will try to stave off elimination tonight on home ice, where they were 14-7-3 as the host during the regular season. Ottawa, which has never squandered a 3-1 series edge in its modern history, was 10-11-3 on the road this season. If necessary, Game 6 of this series is scheduled for Saturday in Ottawa.

Both will be unrestricted free agents this summer. http://www.theredskinsshoponline.com/Youth-Art-Monk-Redskins-Jersey/ . The mixed zone is not a place to make friends.ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Julius Thomas figures only friends and family drafted him in their fantasy football leagues this season. One catch in two pro seasons didnt exactly make him a tantalizing target. He certainly was a bulls-eye for Peyton Manning in the NFLs kickoff. He caught the first two of the Denver quarterbacks record-tying seven touchdown throws in the Broncos 49-27 rout of the Ravens. His five-catch, 110-yard breakout performance showed fantasy fans and real opponents alike that Thomas can be just as big a part of the Broncos plans this season as their trio of wide receivers. Not that Thomas was ever doubted in Denver, mind you. The Broncos brass stuck with the former college basketball power forward who got hurt in his second game as a rookie in 2011, and Thomas returned the favour with a dogged work ethic even as an afterthought. Finally healthy after spending the bulk of his first two seasons in the pros dealing with a bum right ankle, the 6-foot-5, 255-pound Thomas treated every practice this summer like it was game day. Not only was he a late bloomer -- he only played one year of college football after exhausting his basketball eligibility at Portland State -- but he got hurt on his one and only NFL catch after the Broncos selected him in the fourth round of the 2011 draft, hoping theyd landed the next Antonio Gates. After flashing enormous potential in overpowering safeties and eluding linebackers, Thomas injured his right ankle when Bengals linebacker Manny Lawson tackled him after a 5-yard catch in his second NFL game. His career was stuck in neutral after that. He needed an operation last year and played in just four games while tight ends Joel Dreessen and Jacob Tamme combined for 93 catches, 911 yards and seven touchdown catches in 2012. No matter: playing against the NFLs second-best defence last season while running with the scout team helped Thomas hone his skills, calm his nerves and build his confidence. Thomas took advantage of injuries to Tamme and Dreessen this summer to earn Mannings trust and a prominent role in Adam Gases turbocharged offence. When Broncos Executive Vice-President John Elway remarked recently that he was "truly jealous of the weapons that Peyton gets to throw to," hhe made sure to mention he was including Thomas in that equation. DeSean Jackson Redskins Jersey. "He obviously knows a lot more about football than I do and to have his confidence, that means a lot," Thomas said. "This is my third year, but really Im pretty inexperienced and when times get tough, Im sure thats going to be something I have in my back pocket." Thomas had TD catches of 24 and 23 yards before the Broncos roared back from a 17-14 halftime deficit Thursday night with their biggest onslaught in nearly a half-century -- the only time they ever scored more points came in a 50-34 win over San Diego on Oct. 6, 1963. "Someone said it was 718 days since I last caught a pass," Thomas said. "Its tough to stay focused and keep remembering what youre working for, but I made it through and it feels good to have all that behind me." Fantasy players arent the only ones who took notice of Thomas in Week 1. New York Giants defensive co-ordinator Perry Fewell surely did, too. When the Broncos visit the Giants next weekend for the latest Manning Brothers matchup, Fewell will have to devise a plan to slow down not only Wes Welker, Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, but also Julius Thomas, who in many ways can be the most menacing of them all. Thats because of the matchup problems he creates, the nifty moves he honed on the hardwood and the growing rapport with his quarterback. "Im not sure how they will answer it, or if they will, but it will be interesting to see how teams play Julius all season," Manning said. "He is a big guy, he definitely will make teams have a conversation, and that is what you want. You want guys that make teams have a discussion. How are we going to handle this guy? Hes a big guy." Thomas knows his number can be called one week, somebody elses the next. After standing on the sideline for so long, sharing the spotlight isnt a bother. "We have so many weapons on offence. I wouldnt want to be a defensive co-ordinator trying to figure out what its going to take to slow us down," Thomas said. NOTES: Missing Mondays practice were CB Champ Bailey (foot), KR Trindon Holliday (leg), MLB Wesley Woodyard (ankle) and CB Omar Bolden (shoulder). Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' ' 
Setting an optimal lineup for Week 10 is once again a true challenge, with many key players unavailable on byes and fantasy teams jostling for postseason berths. Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic .A few of the hurdles youll face this week:SEATTLE WITH A HEALTHY WILSONRussell Wilson looked healthier on Monday night against Buffalo, which meant he was able to move around more and out of the pocket and seemed to have no limitations throwing downfield. Jimmy Graham had two one-handed TD receptions, but the Patriots might limit his upside and can use cornerback Malcolm Butler on wideout Doug Baldwin. That opens up opportunities for Tyler Lockett, who finally started looking healthier last week, and versatile rookie C.J. Prosise, who could be the most-utilized Seahawks running back this week. Lockett is a bold and possibly very productive streamer, and Prosise is worth some serious point-per-reception consideration as a flex option or fill-in.KELLEY RUNNING FOR WASHINGTONRob Kelley is expected to be the lead running back for Washington again this week, and while Minnesota has allowed only 15.5 fantasy points per game to the running back position according to FantasyPros.com, the Vikings have become more vulnerable to the run recently. Theo Riddick rushed for 70 yards on just 14 carries last week against Minnesota and rookie Jordan Howard had a career-high 153 yards against the Vikes the week before. Kelley is in line for volume and as a TD finisher for a team that likes to throw the ball. He is at least a viable flex play for Week 10.FADING THE SAINTSNew Orleans has the worst pass defense in the NFL, so you might be considering starting Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian. But sometimes the matchup alone isnt enough to make a player a viable starter. Siemian has five TD passes in his past five games. You would be better off using Jay Cutler against Tampa Bay or Carson Wentz vs. Atlanta instead.AND THE BRONCOS RUSHING DDenver has become very vulnerable to the running game. The Broncos now allow 21.4 fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, fourth-most among AFC teams. Mark Ingram and Tim Hightower were both startable last week and the same remains true for Week 10. The Saints are going to throw the ball even against Denvers No. 1 pass defense, so dont bench impressive rookie WR Michael Thomas.ELI ROGERSIf Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger needs a pass-catcher to help him move the chains, look for Eli Rogers to carry over some of his momentum from Week 9. Rogers caught six passes for 103 yards and gives Roethlisberger a possibly reliable short and mid-range target. Consider starting Rogers as your third wide receiver.TIGHT END STREAMERSIf you are still looking for TE help, Houstons C.J. Fiedorowicz is criminally under-owned, available in nearly 80 percent of ESPN leagues. Fiedorowicz has double figure PPR fantasy points in four of his past five games. Lance Kendricks of the Los Angeles Rams has similar ownership percentages and is another double-figure guy in four of the last five.WRs AGAINST 49ERSThe 49ers are historically bad against the run this year, allowing an outrageous 193 yards rushing per game. But they also allow 26.4 FFPG to opposing WRs, sixth-worst among NFL teams. Dont hesitate to use Arizonas J.J. Nelson, who has started to earn more targets. Michael Floyd is even worth some desperation play consideration. RB David Johnson cant have all the fun by himself this week against the NFCs worst team.JAGS RUN GAMEThe Jaguars started to exhibit more of a lean toward the ground game last week, as they finally started to establish more offensive balance under a new offensive coordinator. A respectable running attack is sorely needed to take some pressure off the erratic Blake Bortles. Chris Ivory finally showed some life last week with a 100-yard outing, and takes on a Houston run defense that is allowing 125.8 rushing yards per game with 10 TDs. Pop Ivory into your lineup with confidence based on momentum and the matchup.---This column was provided to The Associated Press by the Fantasy Sports Network, http://FNTSY.com---This story has been corrected to show that Rams tight end Lance Kendricks plays in Los Angeles, not St. Louis.

Los Angeles, though, won that game 5-0.We know hes tough, said Dodger second baseman Chase Utley, who is 0-for-13 against Arrieta. Hes got electric stuff. For every good pitcher, you try to capitalize on their mistakes. They all make mistakes, some more than others, and you have to try to be ready for those mistakes and try to take advantage of those.Arrieta will be on the hill for the first time since Game 3 of the NLDS on Oct. 10 against the San Francisco Giants.

Rory McIlroy has hinted that he will put the BMW PGA Championship back on his schedule next year, but Turkey is set to remain off the menu for the world No. Shane Ray Broncos Jersey . 2.McIlroy had missed the cut in three of his six appearances at Wentworth before tasting victory in 2014, and also made an early exit in defence of his title 12 months later.The four-time major winner did not play this year but is set to feature in 2017, when the event will be part of the European Tours new Rolex Series, a group of seven tournaments with a minimum prize fund of $7 million (£5.6 million).I wouldnt be surprised to see me back at Wentworth next year, said McIlroy, who also welcomed the inclusion of the Irish Open -- hosted by his own foundation -- in the Rolex Series.The European Tour and Rolex will make up the £10 million total shortfall in funding for the BMW PGA Championship, Irish Open and Scottish Open, with the Italian Open, Turkish Airlines Open, Nedbank Golf Challenge and DP World Tour Championship already meeting the prize-fund requirements.However, even the riches on offer in Turkey seem unlikely to tempt McIlroy back to the country following his withdrawal from this years event because of security concerns.McIlroy was not alone in pulling out, but as the star attraction his absence was keenly felt and the manner of his withdrawal drew criticism from Turkish Golf Federation president Ahmet Agaoglu, who heard about it via the media.The 27-year-old also missed the Olympics in Rio after citing concerns over the Zika virus but does not feel his reputation has suffered as a result.I think I do enough good things on the golf course and off the golf course in terms of what I do charity-wise and how I try to carry myself, McIlroy said ahead of the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. Pulling out of a couple of golf tournaments I dont think is going to damage that.Id rather go to Turkey wanting to win the golf tournament than go to Turkey and not want to be there and finish 40th. What good does that do for the tournament? That does nothing for them.The biggest way they can promote golf in Turkey -- OK, they can have my face everywhere on posters -- is me lifting that trophy at the end of the week. If I dont feel comfortable being there Im not going to win the golf tournament.Asked if he was likely to play next year, McIlroy added: After what I read, maybe not.At least McIlroys schedule at the start of 2017 will be busy, the Northern Irishman fulfilling a promise to Ernie Els to play the South African Open in January -- My last IOU from the 2015 Irish Open -- before tournaments in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Los Angeles, Florida (two), Mexico and Texas.After that comes his third attempt to complete the career Grand Slam by winning the Masters, a task he admits was hampered this year by being too proud to seek help with his inconsistent putting.I was stubborn and wanted to figure it out on my own, but I really needed a second opinion, added McIlroy, who eventually sought help from putting expert Phil Kenyon and went on to win the Tour Championship and FedEx Cup.I always figured that if you figure something out on your own, you take ownership of it and its yours. Whereas I felt like my putting was sometimes what other people were telling me what to do, and it was never really mine.But sometimes you need a little bit of help, and I went and got that in August and it really turned the season around for me.

He will donate bone marrow to a 30-year-old leukemia patient in early December once the Quakers season ends.God gave me this opportunity to help a person that I dont even know, Philippi told the Philadelphia Daily News.

Whatever I might have to go through, its nothing compared to what theyre dealing with. Its a chance Im willing to take.Howerton, a senior from Asheville, North Carolina, registered during a drive at Wofford in the spring.

(Missing games) was an easy decision to make when you consider how much you can help another person. I am sacrificing a little bit to help a person who is going through a fight for their life. I appreciate my teammates, coaches and family for their support during this process.The Be The Match registry includes the Get in the Game initiative that was started by Villanova coach Andy Talley, whose foundation has since partnered with over 50 other schools to register more than 61,000 potential donors.

England took the bronze medal at last summers Netball World Cup But Englands recent 3-0 Tri-Series defeat to Australia gave a stark reminder that Tracey Nevilles team still need to make up ground on the top sides in the sport.And Maggie Jackson, an England selector and performance director at Hertfordshire Mavericks, admits that players need more financial support to continue the growth of club netball.I think this is like the beginning of a whole new era this season, Jackson told Sky Sports. The transfers, the recruiting and so on has felt - I think in the 11 years Ive been involved - like its moved up another notch in the standard of the Superleague. Therefore to have this kind of closeness is fantastic for lots of reasons. Australia have strengthened their reputation as the top international side Reflecting on the differences between the Superleague and the ANZ championship, Jackson said: For me, probably because of my coaching background, we have to ensure that franchises are becoming professional, as in literally professional, so we can train players during the day.Clearly tthey will have to do some work, like they do out there, but we need to get more and more players who are able to get paid to train and to compete.

Talented young players have forced their way into Tracey Nevilles selection plans It was always going to be hard with those players who were unavailable or injured, said Jackson. It was the opportunity for people to step up. What was pleasing was to see Ama Agbeze really stepping up and playing well continuously. All the years Ive known Ama, shes been in and out of the squad, but she got some court time and really stuck to the task. I thought she and Eboni Beckford-Chambers really worked well together.Natalie Haythornthwaite who is having an impact in the Superleague - people like her have got the potential to really do well.For me, Natalie, Ama, Sara Bayman in the middle and of course Helen Housby, another one who a bit like Ama got the opportunity to play a lot more.

The parade and rally were held to celebrate the Saskatchewan Roughriders 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday in the CFLs championship game. The New York Islanders fit into that uncomfortable category of Geez, Im not really sure if theyre a team on the rise or just going in an ever-expanding circle. After making their second consecutive playoff experience and winning their first playoff series since 1993 last spring -- a six-game victory over the Atlantic Division champion?Florida Panthers?-- the Islanders cant afford to take a step back.The problem is, theres no real tangible indication this team is any better than it was last spring -- and, in fact, theres some widespread belief that it already might have regressed after losing key pieces Kyle Okposo, Frans Nielsen and Matt Martin.In a division in which everyone else seems to be on the rise, thats not good news. And if the Isles really arent poised to build on last seasons successes, how does that impact captain John Tavares, whose contract ends after the 2017-18 season? He already is the subject of no small amount of rumor vis-a-vis his next port of call.And thats all on the ice. Off the ice, the Islanders will begin their second season in Brooklyn still very much needing to clarify their long-term future at Barclays Center after a first year that can only charitably be called an up-and-down one in their new home.Biggest new facesIt is still more than a little mystifying why the Islanders decided early on that they werent going to re-up Okposo, who signed with the?Buffalo Sabres, but were willing to basically give a similar contract to Andrew Ladd, who is almost two years older. Ladd, who signed a seven-year deal worth $38.5 million, is a two-time Stanley Cup champion and the former captain of the Winnipeg Jets. Hell be a welcome addition to the Islanders locker room, but its a stretch to see him as a 30-goal guy. And the term of the deal (seven years) looks like itll be a killer -- and maybe sooner than later.Joining Ladd up front will be Jason Chimera, who is coming off a nice run in Washington -- although at some point the hard-skating 37-year-old is going to run out of gas, isnt he? Speaking of older players, 35-year-old?Dennis Seidenberg?parlayed a nice turn with Team Europe at the World Cup of Hockey into a one-year deal with the Islanders, whom hell help out on the blue line. But there was a reason why Seidenberg ddidnt fit with the?Boston Bruins, who were looking to get younger and more mobile on defense. http://www.cheapnfljerseyswholesaleoutlet.cc/cheap-pittsburgh-penguins-jersey-outlet/. iggest unknownsWith Okposo and Nielsen (who signed with the?Detroit Red Wings)?gone, thats 116 points out of last years lineup that has to be replaced if the Isles are to continue flirting with being a top-10 offensive team (they were 11th last season). Ladd and Chimera will bring some offense, but which of the kids will step forward? Ryan Strome went from 17 goals two years ago to eight last season and was a healthy scratch at times in the playoffs. Josh Bailey, the ninth overall pick in the 2008 entry draft, has never hit the 20-goal plateau. He had 12 goals last season and just one in the playoffs. Shane Prince and Alan Quine were both impressive in the playoffs but have little NHL experience, while another top prospect, center Mathew Barzal, has impressed at camp for the second straight year.As for the goaltending, itll be interesting to see how the story unfolds this year after Thomas Greiss took over for an injured Jaroslav Halak and was excellent in guiding the Isles to the upset of the Panthers in the first round. Halak is healthy and was clutch for Team Europe, which he helped guide to the World Cup of Hockey finals. But the issue with Halak, as always, is durability -- and it would surprise no one if the Isles have to patch together their goaltending as the season moves along.Sure thingsWell, theres John Tavares. And thats as sure as it gets for the Islanders. He probably doesnt get the attention that guys like Jonathan Toews, Sidney Crosby or even Ryan Getzlaf do, but Tavares is one of the premier two-way centers in the game and works tirelessly to make himself the most complete player he can be. He was terrific playing out of position for Team Canada, which tells you how humble he is, and he will continue to set the tone in the dressing room for an Islanders team that he basically carried single-handedly into the second round last spring.PredictionLots of teams are trending north in the Metropolitan Division. Im just not sure the Islanders are one of them. Seventh in the Metropolitan Division. Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' ' 
WEST BROMWICH, England -- Manchester City ended a six-match winless streak by duly thumping West Bromwich Albion 4-0 in the English Premier League on Saturday. Nike Air Max 1 Baratas .West Brom hasnt won in the league since mid-September, and was outgunned by the league-leading visitors.Sergio Aguero and Ilkay Gundogan scored twice each to bring an emphatic end to Pep Guardiolas longest winless run in his managerial career.Aguero scored twice in the first half, and set up the third for Gundogan after the break when West Brom was threatening. Gundogans second in the last minute capped a flattering scoreline for City, which edged Arsenal on top of the standings on goal difference. Nike Air Max 90 Baratas Mujer .S. -- Nikolaj Ehlers registered a hat trick for the third straight game and Jonathan Drouin had a goal and five assists as the Halifax Mooseheads hammered the host Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 10-1 on Tuesday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Nike Air Max Invigor Mujer . Only three players drafted by NHL clubs were included on the Czech selection camp roster on Wednesday. Those players were Dallas Stars 2012 first-rounder Radek Faksa, Winnipeg Jets 2013 fourth-rounder Jan Kostalek and Phoenix Coyotes 2012 seventh-rounder Marek Langhamer. http://www.maxairbaratas-es.com/nike-air-max-2016-baratas.html .C. Lions has come to an end. Banks told TSN on Jan 2 that he had no interest in playing out the option year of his contract with the Lions in 2014, and he again made that clear in a conversation with Lions GM Wally Buono last week. TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Trevor Knight has changed teams, proven hes not a one-game wonder and re-emerged with a national title contender.The Texas A&M quarterback was a redshirt freshman for Oklahoma when he picked apart Alabamas defense in the January 2013 Sugar Bowl and looked every bit the rising star. Now, the top-ranked Crimson Tide, with mostly new players, finally gets another shot at Knight when he leads the sixth-ranked Aggies into Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday in a matchup of the Southeastern Conferences top teams.His career with the Sooners never took off, but Knights doing just fine now. The Sugar Bowl was a stunner at the time even if it seems like ancient history to him.It was a long time ago, Knight said this week. Im not even at the same school anymore. They talk about its me and I guess (Mississippis) Chad Kelly are the two teams that have beaten Alabama but again thats so far in the past that you cant look into that now.Its still noteworthy to reflect on just how good Knight was on that January night in New Orleans against a strong Alabama defense. Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops had kept his quarterback a mystery leading up to the game: Would he start Knight or Blake Bell?He chose wisely. Knight wound up passing for 348 yards and four touchdowns to win Sugar Bowl MVP honors and outshine Heisman Trophy runner up AJ McCarron for the 16-point underdogs. His 32 completions set a Sugar Bowl record and was only 15 shy of his total the rest of the season.We won and that was a good feeling, Knight said. Again that was a great game, a long time ago. We came out and played really well and got a win. Thats just another win under our belt back then and I dont think too much (about) it nowadays.He has more pressing matters on his mind. Knight is thriving in coach Kevin SSumlins offense at Texas A&M. Air Max Tavas Mujer. He has passed for 1,500 yards and nine touchdowns while rushing for 502 yards and another nine TDs.More importantly, he has guided the Aggies to a 6-0 start and four straight SEC wins. Knight has passed for 200-plus yards and rushed for more than 80 in each of his last three league games.Saban doesnt need to replay the Sugar Bowl to be impressed with Knight.Hes very athletic. Hes very quick, Saban said. Hes a good decision-maker. He makes quick decisions with the ball. He changes angles of throws and gets the ball out of his hands quick on all the (run-pass options), and can extend plays in the passing game when they need him to. This guys a complete player at the position. I thought he was that when we played him before and I think hes even better now.Now, Knight gets his biggest challenge perhaps since that Sugar Bowl. Alabama (7-0, 4-0) has the nations top rushing defense and held Tennessees dual-threat quarterback Joshua Dobbs to 61 yards of total offense in last weekends 49-10 win.Trevor Knight makes all the throws, can run, can hurt you with his legs and his arms, so its definitely going to be a challenge for us, Alabama linebacker Ryan Anderson said.The present is whats on the minds of Knight, Sumlin, Saban and Alabama players and what they want to talk about. Sumlin said he hasnt even watched that Sugar Bowl.Storyline is two teams in 2016 who are two Top-10 teams playing to try and win the West, Sumlin said. Thats where we are.But Knight vs. Alabama makes for a good sidebar.---AP Sports Writer Kristie Rieken contributed to this report.---AP college football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

This is what it looks like when a city finds true love after a lifetime of sports heartbreak: Strangers high-five and hug one another. Hardened cynics find themselves wiping away a stray tear. Fans young and old don goofy costumes and paint their faces, dancing to live music in the cool night air; friends and family snap countless selfies, trying to freeze frame a memory. Thousands of people show up on a cold and windy night, with or without tickets, just to laugh and cheer and soak up the joy of a moment that, even a year ago, would have seemed absurd.For a few hours on Tuesday, downtown Cleveland was the center of the American sports universe. Inside Quicken Loans Arena, the Cavaliers raised a banner and slipped on their championship rings for the first time, then thumped the Knicks 117-88. Barely 100 yards away, the Indians hosted -- and won -- Game 1 of the 2016 World Series, beating the Cubs 6-0. It was a historic night for a city that once seemed would be forever cursed with disappointment, and nowhere was the suddenly surreal optimism more evident than in the giant courtyard between Quicken Loans and Progressive Field. It felt like a party 50 years in the making, a symbolic celebration for a city thats quietly thriving after years of being the butt of jokes.Its the most insane thing in sports history, says Gary Koehler, one of the thousands of fans who watched the World Series from the courtyard on giant video boards erected by the Indians. Every Cleveland sports fan who has been through years of tragedy, theyre just in heaven tonight.All over the city on Tuesday, there was a sense of excitement buzzing in the air. A saxophone player on Euclid Avenue blared Take Me Out To The Ballgame to a gleeful gathering of Indians fans. You could find dozens of people, both men and women, dressed up like Ricky Vaughn, Charlie Sheens rogue-but-lovable character from Major League. Lets Go Tribe! chants broke out in bars, in coffee shops and especially on the street. The headline in Plain Dealer summed up the mood perfectly: Are you ready to believe again?All of this is so great for the city, and for the county, says Bob Leech, a 71-year-old who sold programs at Indians games as a kid. Weve always had such a bad rap, the whole Mistake by the Lake thing. I hope thats all gone, because Clevelanders are really good, hard-working people. And its great to be part of it.The way the last few years have unfolded -- particularly the way LeBron James left for Miami, then returned, then fulfilled his promise to bring a championship to the city he had jilted -- seems, in some ways, more like literature than real life. Youd scoff at the sentimentality?if you hadnt seen it with your own eyes. Before he received a long-awaited ring, James couldnt stop smiling and fidgeting, his body twitching with excitement. It was clear he couldnt wait to get a microphone in his hand. When he finally did, he wasnt speaking as a Cavalier, but as a native of Northeast Ohio.From this building, to next door where our guys are opening the World Series, at this point, if youre not from here, live here, play here, dedicate yourself to Cleveland, then it makes no sense for you to live, James said. Cleveland against the world!It is obvious that the renaissance of the Cavs and Indians franchises has no real connection to Clevelands economic rebirth as a city. The two storylines are related in only the loosest sense. But for many Cleveland natives, it has been almost poetic to watch them unfold on similar timelines. Jon Groza and Scott Sargent, two Clevelanders born and raised, were drinking a beer inside Johnnys Little Bar this week, a cozy downtown dive thats tucked into an alley off Frankfurt Avenue, when they couldnt help but laugh at a bit of irony.Here they were, wondering if television networks would finally stop showing clips of the Cuyahoga River catching on fire as part of their pregame package for big Cavaliers and Indians games -- while at the same time, drinking pints of Great Lakes Burning River Pale Ale. Virgil Green Broncos Jersey. Were sitting here drinking this, but the reality is, that narrative isnt relevant anymore, says Groza, a lawyer whose grandfather, Lou Groza, is an NFL Hall of Famer who played for the Browns for 21 seasons. Its so annoying to see that brought up so often.The story of this city has changed, says Sargent, who runs the popular Cleveland sports blog Waiting for Next Year. Its weird how people cling to that.After experiencing decades of population decline and job losses, there are a lot of indications that Cleveland is finally starting to recover, and even experience growth. The Republican National Convention was just held here. The Cleveland Clinic is a world-class hospital. Home prices are on the rise, new businesses are opening up, and young professionals like Groza -- who used to live in Washington D.C. but moved back to his hometown -- are starting to return. Instead of settling in Chicago or New York, a growing number want to support the place where they grew up.One of the things Cleveland has always taken pride in is the way we maintain these cultural institutions, Groza says. We probably dont deserve three sports franchises, but were such a rabid fan base, it works. Its the same way we probably dont deserve to have a Museum of Art with $750 million endowment. Or a top-five orchestra in the country. But thats who we are.James, too, left town to pursue other opportunities before ultimately realizing his heart would forever be in Cleveland. Thats something a lot of young professionals could relate to -- once they took the emotional betrayal out of it. Its why it was easy to forgive James for The Decision, as painful as it once was, as soon as he announced he was returning. He was one of them. And of course, not only was he returning, he was convincing other people in the prime of their careers (Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith) that Cleveland was a suitable place to spend three or four years.Everyone in Cleveland knows exactly where they were when LeBron announced he was coming back, Groza says. Its like people remembering where they were when they heard JFK was shot. Obviously hes a brilliant marketer, and it was good for his brand, but I think it was sincere. He wanted to come home.Sometimes sports has a unique way of helping cement what it means to feel a connection to a place or a region. Anjali Atul Mehta, a Cleveland lawyer who is also a rabid Cavs fan, says she couldnt help but get emotional this week thinking about what her hometowns teams had meant to her family. There were countless nights when her father, Atul, would load Anjali and her two siblings into the car and drive to Municipal Stadium just to see the postgame fireworks.I know this sounds silly, but when my parents came to this country from India 40 years ago, they felt like they truly became Americans by following the Browns, the Cavs and the Indians, says Mehta, who attended the Cavs ring ceremony. My dad loves to joke that hes a true Cleveland Indian. I think thats what sports do -- they make you feel like you are a part of a community. Weve all fallen together, weve gotten our hopes up together, and tonight, I guess you could say we all succeeded together.The way that Quicken Loans Arena and Progressive Field are situated, its actually possible to stand inside the Q, and from certain windows, see home plate through a gap in the left field stands. On Tuesday, when Indians catcher Roberto Perez put his team up 3-0 in the fourth inning, and then when he made it 6-0 in the eighth, Progressive Field went bonkers, people bouncing up and down in their seats and whipping red towels over their heads in a frenzy.And if you looked through the gap in the stands, you could see a big group of Cavs fans inside the Q, also jumping up and down, faces pressed against the glass -- in the midst of one celebration and also longing to be a part of another.

CHICAGO -- The Cubs didnt want to see a championship celebration at Wrigley Field -- not if the other team would have been whooping it up. Nike Flex 2016 RN Womens Running Shoes Crimson/Black . A late rally prevented that. Dioner Navarro hit a tiebreaking single in a three-run eighth inning, and the Cubs beat Atlanta 3-1 Saturday to keep the Braves on the brink of the NL East title. Atlantas magic number remained at one to clinch its first division title since 2005. Second-place Washington was rained out against Miami later Saturday. Either way, the Cubs didnt have to watch a celebration. "One day, hopefully, thatll be us and we can move forward from that," Travis Wood said. The Cubs are a long way from contention, of course. They have 90 losses and are last in the NL Central, with another brutal season coming to a finish. Not having to witness the Braves clinching was just one small victory. "It was nice not to have to see (a celebration) in person," manager Dale Sveum said. Starlin Casto singled off Kris Medlen with one out in the eighth, pinch-hitter Donnie Murphy singled against Scott Downs (2-1) and Anthony Rizzo hit a tying double down the left-field line. Navarro singled in the go-ahead run against David Carpenter, and Nate Schierholtz added a sacrifice fly. "They just made some good swings," Laird said. "Rizzo went out and got that ball, hit it down the line. Dioner hit that slider down and in. Youve got to tip your cap to them." Medlen held Chicago to one run and six hits in 7 1-3 innings after going 4-0 with an 0.98 ERA in his previous four starts. "Its tough, but Im a former bullpen guy, and I know how tough that job is," Medlen said. "The dudes do their best. Theyve carried us the entire year, so these things happen and nobody in this clubhouse is panicking at all or anything. Credit their pitcher with keeping the game close, too. (Travis) Woods having a great year. I felt it all game. I felt like it was in my hands, and the game was over. I had all the confidence in the world in myself and I just tried making pitches." Carlos Villanueva (7-8) relieved Wood with two on and no outs in the eighth after Justin Upton doubled and Freddie Freeman walked. Villanueva induced a double-play grounder by Chris Johnson and a flyout by Evan Gattis. Pedro Strop struck out the side in the ninth for his first save in four chances. Atlanta went ahead in the fourth when Freeman walked and scored on Gattis single. But B.J. Upton also struck out looking with the bases loaded to end the rally. Wood settled down after that, allowing one run, five hits and four walks in seven innings with seven strikeouts. "I had pretty command of most my pitches, being able to locate my fastball and getting the cutter on their hands and get some early swings and some quick outs," Wood said. "Just that last inning kind of got away from me quick. I really wanted to go out there and finish it strong and maybe overtried a little bit and left a pitch over that Upton could hit and Freeman battled me." NOTES: Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said OF Jason Heyward "was feeling great," a day after Heyward returned from the disabled list.

It certainly could have. Rasmus was injured taking his position in the first inning of Friday nights game. As he jogged toward centre field, Anthony Gose threw a warm up toss from his spot in right field. Problem was, Rasmus wasnt looking and the throw was spot on, hitting Rasmus in the face. He left the game immediately. “Preliminary x-rays, everything looks good,” said Gibbons. “They still want a few days, when the swelling and everything subsides, to get a few more looks.” The timing is cruel to Rasmus. He had just returned from a month on the disabled list with a strained left oblique. Rasmus hit a home run in each of the four games he played. He was due to lead off the second inning of Fridays game. Fashion Nike Air Presto Black/Fluorescent Green Mens Shoes . . Instead, Rasmus season ends with a slash line of .276/.338/.501. His .840 OPS is easily his best since his breakout 2010 season with the Cardinals (.859.) Rasmus hit 22 home runs in 118 games. His career best of 23, set in 2010 and 2012, was achieved in 144 and 151 games, respectively. The Blue Jays are down to four outfielders and will, at some point soon, go as many as three days without Rajai Davis. Davis wife is past due with the couples first child and so a trip to the paternity list is imminent. That would leave Anthony Gose, Moises Sierra and Kevin Pillar to man the three outfield spots. There also are other options. “Well make do,” said Gibbons. “Were at the end here, we dont have a whole lot of time left anyway but DeRosas played some outfield, Kawasaki could go out there. Weve got some guys who could do it.” Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

ATLANTA -- Duke coach David Cutcliffe points to the Blue Devils two straight wins over Georgia Tech as evidence the program is on the rise.A third straight win in the series on Saturday would be particularly reassuring to Duke fans, since the Blue Devils have lost their first three Atlantic Coast Conference games this season and are last in the Coastal Division -- just ahead of the Yellow Jackets.Duke (3-4, 0-3 ACC) should enter the game with good background in the triple-option plays in Georgia Techs spread-option offense. The Blue Devils beat Army, which runs a similar scheme, on Oct. 8.A lot of it is guys buying into that scheme, and playing assignment football, playing disciplined football, said Duke cornerback Bryon Fields.Cutcliffe said playing Army was only an introduction to Georgia Techs version of the spread option.Army, in all due respect, is not even close to what Georgia Tech is from a weapons standpoint offensively, Cutcliffe said.

The year before we turned the ball over a bunch down here. ... They have had our number the last couple years, so were looking forward to having a chance to seeing if we cant play a little better than we did the last two times we played.In 2014, Georgia Tech outgained Duke 483-373 but was hurt by three second-half turnovers in a 31-25 loss. Last season, Duke held the Yellow Jackets to 173 yards rushing beat in a 34-20 win.Were a better footbball team than weve been, Cutcliffe said, adding the improvement is the big part of having an opportunity to beat a Georgia Tech program thats just been consistently a winner.

Fill-in Danny Stirt has only one punt, for 41 yards, this season.TD MACHINE: Georgia Tech freshman running back Dedrick Mills has 10 touchdowns, including nine rushing, in only six games.

Another problem has been third-down defense. Opponents have been successful on almost half of third downs (50 of 101).BALL SECURITY: The Blue Devils have taken much better care of the ball in their past couple of games. Theyve turned it over just once in their last two games after giving it away a season-worst six times in a loss to Virginia on Oct. 1. Quipped Cutcliffe: We used the quota up that day, and then some.EXTRA PRACTICE: Following the win over Army, Duke coaches intentionally postponed their internal review of the game because they were facing Louisville on a short week. They then picked that up during the extra preparation time after the 24-14 loss to Louisville and during their week off. Georgia Tech also was off last week.---AP Sports Writer Joedy McCreary in Durham, North Carolina contributed to this report.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
