The local cafes have been packed for days, but on the fifth day, there is no queue to get your ten-dollar lunch specials. Titans Jerseys China Cheap . There is no police outside the ground making sure cricket fans dont get run over. Neroli Meadows and Merv Hughes have almost the entire Woolloongabba Place Park to themselves for some TV work. Only a handful watch Pakistan in the nets. Most of the people walking around the ground are not fans but Cricket Australia, Queensland Cricket or Brisbane Lions employees. The plastic bollards to give the crowd extra walking space are being taken down even as a few spectators walk past them.That is because no one really believes Pakistan can win.Off the second ball of the day, Asad Shafiq plays and misses. Yasir Shah plays a flash uppercut soon after, and you can feel Australia will just get one right, and the lack of crowd will be justified by a quick finish. But Australia dont get many right.A single guided to deep point is just one of the 490 needed, but it brings the target to under a hundred and cricket makes that a noteworthy occurrence. Shafiq is farming the strike, making sure that Yasir doesnt have to face too many balls. Apparently, he hasnt watched Yasir in the nets over the last two days, because he has looked more assured than Younis, more in-form than Misbah and technically superior to Sarfraz Ahmed. Shafiq plays and misses again at one; that may have hit a crack. Will this heroic defiance be ended by simple day-five deterioration?But as Yasir plays some effortless cover drives, and Shafiq stops playing and missing, the first signs of tension start to show on Australian faces. A graceful push through cover compels David Warner to throw every part of himself at stopping the ball. Instead, it eludes him and gently nudges the boundary triangle. The total crosses 400, another pointless landmark, another moral victory for Pakistan. More belief.Yasir plays an offside waft, not even a real shot; the field is up, and he was sucked into the wrong shot. The ball is passed to Steven Smith who sighs for what seems like seven seconds. Yasir backs up his weak shot with an ordinary stroke that misses the ball by about a foot, and instead hits the ground. Matthew Wade and Smith show some excitement, but its not a real appeal, its just the hope of a real appeal. Its now half an hour, and the game is different than before: there are two set batsmen, one frustrated captain, two tiring strike bowlers and one ever-softening ball.Ian Healy talks to the Pakistani fans, of which there are few, but they are loud enough for it to feel like a home game. One fan claims they will win, not only this Test, but all the Tests. It is different from the passionate pessimism of regular Pakistan fans, but even gung-ho patriotism aside, you can see his point.Australia seems to have no definite plan, no grip on the contest, and now Jackson Bird is warming up. Bird has bowled well and has earned his spot by taking wickets, but hes at his best with a new ball, winkling out top-order batsmen. His first ball seems gentle and apologetic, and is guided with grace and no effort by Shafiq, who happily lets Yasir face Bird, in a way he never did for Mitchell Starc or Josh Hazlewood. Nathan Lyon comes on and Shafiq pushes him away effortlessly as well, and has no qualms about Yasir facing him either - this despite the fact that Yasir is almost dismissed from an excellent Lyon ball straightaway.During a Bird over, Warner comes excitedly to talk to Smith at slip. Next ball, Bird hits a crack; its probably not true, but I like to think that Warner said, all we need to do is hit that crack a lot. The ball flies past the one floating slip, and Smith reacts by putting out a fly slip, who is so square hes almost a fly gully. Yasir responds with a push through the covers for two. Warner chases after it like no man has ever chased after a two in the covers. There is such power in his running, such desperation, and yet it was always going to be two. It was as if Warner thought that by running fast, he could change Australias new fate, of being on the wrong side of the biggest chase in cricket.At the one-hour mark, our stats team point out that only once in Pakistans Test history before this have their numbers 7 to 10 scored over 20 in the same innings.Smith tries something new: a short leg, a short midwicket; fly gully goes back to standard gully and Bird tries to go straight. On a morning of almost no obvious plans or proactive calls, this one is quite clear. Yasir reacts by drop-kicking the straight ball over square legs head like hes operating Viv Richards in a computer game. Forget belief, Yasir now has swag.Lyon beats Yasir and appeals for a caught behind; Wade takes the bails off, and he asks for a stumping. Half the team appeal to one umpire, half to the other, some for a catch, some for a stumping, and probably a few for lbw. Its not an appeal for a wicket; it is not out in any of crickets ten dismissal laws. Its an appeal for help.It is then, with what might be thousands but could be just hundreds of people in the ground, I suddenly realise; I could be at one of the single most amazing days of cricket in history. Pakistan still need heaps, Australia still only need two balls, but it doesnt feel like that. All my cricket background is saying, this will stop, that theyll get a good ball in, or Pakistan will struggle when the overwhelming nature of chasing 490 gets down to a handful of runs. But I dont care. Now I believe.When a strong drive from Shafiq crashes into the non-strikers stumps, there is a sudden panic, as Yasir doesnt have his bat down. But when you see the replay you see a ball heading for Birds hand, only to take an exaggerated dip. Now it might have been spin on the ball that made it do that, or the game now deciding that Pakistan must win. I decide the dip existed, and that it was a sign of a supernatural presence - Mother Cricket - guiding it away.Starc comes back on, Yasir flays, and Shafiq goes down to tell him not to. Yasir pushes Starc through cover; Starc looks at Smith, and Smith shrugs back at Starc. Everyone is talking to someone, every ball. Ian Gould talks to Yasir about something, and suddenly I need to know what is going on: why are they talking, what does it mean, why cant I hear them? Every single small moment, a lingering look at cover and point, or a back pat between the batsmen is now the single most important thing I have ever seen.And Asad Shafiq. I mean what is happening there? He was supposed to be in poor form, still hiding down at six and not taking up his rightful place at three or four. He was barely involved in the first innings and now look at him. He seems to have worked out the exact mathematical dimensions of this ground to find every single or two he needs. Hes batting with Misbahs mind and Younis self-determination, and prettier than either. Shafiqs bat has become something extraordinary, like it was made from a willow tree that was struck by lightning, crafted by Hattori Hanzo and one that he, and only he, could pull out of an enchanted stone. With it, he calmly guides another ball away to the boundary, calmly like this isnt the chance for perhaps the most incredible victory, but just a club game with some mates.Yasir slashes at point. Lyon launches himself as best he can without the athletic gifts that some of his team-mates have, gets a finger to it - just one which you can see bend as the ball crashes through. The other fielders clean up beyond him, the batsmen run three, the balls returned to Wade, who throws it up to mid-off, and Lyon is still on the ground. Shafiq takes a single next ball, and Yasir is back on strike. He leaves a ball after a shuffle down the wicket; it hits his back leg and on commentary, Mark Nicholas says, They ask, they ask, they get it, they get it, they get it. But just to prove that Yasirs judgment all morning has been on song, he reviews instantaneously, and its overturned almost as quick.But the reviews show up something else, something which will be far more important: reverse swing. Its not clear, until another one crashes into the pads, and yes, thats what it is. Oh Pakistan, it had to be that, didnt it?Starcs next over has him around the wicket going at the batsmen. He gets one down the legside and Yasir moves across and it takes something as it goes through to Wade. Starc goes up to appeal, but the ball is trickling along the ground and Wade is desperately trying to pick it up, like he can make up for what has just happened. He gets up and seems to say to everyone, its just pad, or that it didnt carry, but essentially, its all cool guys. The replays show there was bat, but the replays that needed to show whether the catch carried, never comes. Wade finishes the over by fumbling another ball and they dont take the run. Wade walks down pitch trying to spin the helmet on his hand casually. It doesnt spin well, it doesnt look casual. It is barely repressed panic. The panic shifts though with Shafiqs first play and miss in an age. There is no doubt now, the ball is moving, the spell is breaking.Next over, Starc is around the wicket again, and a good yorker is just squeezed away by Yasir. Now it is Starc v Shafiq. Starc, like a chum-baited shark, isnt the same bowler as earlier. The ball jumps up at Shafiq, fast and mean. The man who has been a Zen batting master is suddenly everywhere at once, in the air, facing the wrong way, each limb doing a different thing. But the ball has somehow ignored the chaos to find the leading edge, and it balloons up.Its not that high, its not a tough catch, but it goes to Warner - the man who earlier tried to beat fate by running fast - on a platter with a champagne flute beside it. After the false dawns and optimistic cries of hope, the Australians wait for the catch to be completed, and when it is, they scream, the way you do when you have just realised you arent about to become the laughing stock of the world. Not Starc, he barely raises a hand.Shafiq is even more emotionless. Shafiq was stoic all innings, and his face is the same now as he takes his gloves off and starts heading off. That is until Yasir walks over and embraces him. Then it hits him, and it becomes obvious that up until that very moment, he believed. He believed more than Misbah, more than the loud Pakistan fan on Channel Nine, more than anyone could, or should. He takes his helmet off, and at first he isnt even walking towards the dressing rooms, just drifting off the ground. Of all the things he had allowed himself to dream, the walk off the ground as a loser wasnt one.Rahat Alis reputation as an entertaining batsman, for almost none of the right reasons, means that Yasir decides to hit out. He tries to slog Starc with no luck, and then he tries to hit a yorker. He makes contact, but he doesnt know where, so he takes off, before realising it has gone behind him, and he turns. Smith at first just gently takes the dribbling ball, but then, like a gunfighter who sees a man drop his weapon, he goes for the kill. It was Smith who allowed Pakistan to dream, for Shafiq to be the hero, and now it is the same hands that end the match.Maybe it was reverse swing, Pakistans most dramatic superpower, that changed the balance, but it was quality fielding, their one eternal weakness, that finished them. It was 40 runs those who werent watching will say, not even that close. They wont get it. Just like how those who didnt believe in Pakistan didnt get that they believed in the first place. And they may have lost, but after all that, you know they still believe. Cheap Titans Jerseys Authentic . The veteran safety was a starter for the Bengals from 2008-2012. He totaled 41 tackles and three interceptions while starting all but four of the 13 games he played last season. Authentic Harold Landry Jersey . After the whistle, Thornton skated the length of the ice, pulled Orpik to the ice from behind and punched him in the face several times. http://www.cheaptitansjerseysauthentic.com/ . P.A. Parenteau scored early in the third period to help the Avs edge Toronto 2-1 on Tuesday night. Cory Sarich also scored for Colorado (3-0-0), which is off to its best ever start. MANCHESTER, England -- A 24-hour delay couldnt put prolific Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero off his stride in the Champions League on Wednesday.Aguero scored a hat trick to lead City to a 4-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach in their rescheduled Group C opener that was washed out Tuesday because of torrential rain before kickoff at Etihad Stadium.The Argentina international is compiling some impressive numbers under new coach Pep Guardiola this season: Nine goals in five games; two hat tricks so far in the Champions League, with the other coming in the playoff round against Steaua Bucharest.So, too, is Guardiola. This was Citys seventh straight win to open the Spaniards coaching tenure and his teams attacking intensity was too much for Moenchengladbach to handle.Kelechi Iheanacho -- a late replacement for Aguero -- added a fourth goal for City, which did its best to keep pace with group rival Barcelona, a day after the Spanish side thrashed Celtic 7-0.There were positives all over the field for City, perhaps no more so than the sight of Ilkay Gundogan running midfield on his debut following an offseason move from Borussia Dortmund. It was the Germany internationals first game since April, when he dislocated his right kneecap, and he slotted right into Guardiolas team -- much to the coachs surprise.But that couldnt take the limelight from Aguero, who was back in the team amid a three-match domestic suspension for elbowing an opponent during a Premier League game. He tapped in the opening goal from Aleksandar Kolarovs low cross in the ninth minute, converted a penalty in the 28th after Gundogan was tripped, and completed his hat trick by rounding the goalkeeper in a one-on-one chance set up by Raheem Sterling in the 77th minute.Ever the perfectionist, Guardiola said that if Aguero worked harder for the team, even more goals will come his way.I wanted to convince Sergio that his talent in the box too score goals is natural -- I cannot teach him that, Guardiola said. Authentic Rashaan Evans Jersey. But he has to know that behind there is a team thats going to help him, if hes going to help, and that is what I want to convince him.OK, the goals will come along. But if he can help us in that way, hes going to score a lot of goals.Agueros early goals quietened a reduced contingent of Moenchengladbach fans who had stayed on an extra day to support their team. Some of them had slept in a coach at the Etihad overnight and when they got to their seats for Wednesdays hastily rearranged match, they found an absence letter -- drafted and signed by the clubs sporting director, Max Eberl -- that could be given to the fans employers to explain why they might have missed work.The German club had its moments, such as when captain Lars Stindl brought a great save from City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo from a well-worked corner routine late in the first half. But the visitors couldnt stifle Citys attacking threat and conceded chance after chance in the final minutes.The whole team knew what to expect. Its not untypical of City, Moenchengladbach coach Andre Schubert said. We knew theyd press us high, particularly the first 25 minutes, and exert their power on us.We have to play to our limits. We had to get everything right, be very courageous, attack high up with high intensity. We didnt manage to do that.City reached the Champions League semifinals for the first time last season, losing to eventual champion Real Madrid, and Guardiola spoke in his program notes about creating history at a club that has never won Europes top trophy.The next step with this club is to be there every single season, quarterfinal, semifinal and maybe in the final, Guardiola said. It is not the point to arrive once and after disappear.

Shaquille ONeal will be enshrined into the Basketball Hall of Fame on Friday after a career that saw him make six different NBA stops and sport a multitude of different looks -- and almost as many self-appointed nicknames.Cole High SchoolONeal burst onto the scene at Cole High School in San Antonio, where he led his team to a 36-0 record and a state championship as a senior.LSU TigersIn three seasons at LSU, ONeal was twice named SEC Player of the Year and became the No. 1 pick in the 1992 NBA draft. A statue of ONeal in his famed two-handed dunking pose now stands on LSUs campus.Orlando MagicONeal arrived in Orlando in 1992, becoming the young franchises first superstar. He won NBA Rookie of the Year honors, averaging 23.4 PPG and a career-high 13.9 RPG in his first season.Western University DolphinsDuring the offseason following his rookie year, ONeal went back to college -- at the fictional Western University as part of the movie Blue Chips. It was on the set of that movie where he bonded with Anfernee Hardaway, urging the Magic to acquire the point guard in the 1993 NBA draft.1994 U.S. mens national teamAfter being passed over for the Dream Team for Christian Laettner, ONeal made his U.S. national team debut in 1994 at the FIBA World Championship, leading the team known as Dream Team II to a gold medal.Orlando MagicIn 1995, ONeal led the Magic to the NBA Finals, where they were swept by the Houston Rockets. It would turn out to be the high point of ONeals time in Orlando.1996 U.S. mens national teamONeal returned to Team USA for the Olympics in 1996, leading the squad to gold in Atlanta.Los Angeles LakersWhen ONeal arrived in Los Angeles in 1996, the Lakers still wore their classic jerseys associated with the Showtime Lakers of the 1980s.Los Angeles LakersThe Lakers changed to their modern look in 1999-2000, when ONeal led the team to its firstt of three consecutive NBA championships. Authentic Isaiah Wynn Jersey. Minneapolis LakersThe Lakers moved from Minneapolis to Los Angeles in 1960 -- 12 years before ONeal was born. But during his time in L.A., the team wore these throwback uniforms, giving fans a glimpse of what he might have looked like lining up next to George Mikan.Los Angeles Shaws?They say the name on the front of the jersey is more important than the one on the back. In this case, ONeal turned that name on the front of his jersey into that of Brian Shaw -- his teammate in both Los Angeles and Orlando.Miami HeatIn 2004, ONeal was traded to the Heat and returned to Florida in style, recreating his look from his first photo shoot with the Magic.Miami FloridiansONeal in the ABA would have been a sight to see -- and the Heat gave fans an idea of what that might have looked like when they sported these Floridians throwbacks.Phoenix SunsAfter three-plus years in South Florida, the Big Cactus landed in Phoenix, where he made his final All-Star appearance as a member of the Suns in 2009.Cleveland CavaliersWin a ring for the King was ONeals mantra when he arrived in Cleveland for the 2009-10 season, but he and LeBron James fell short of that goal.Cleveland CavaliersThough he only played 53 games as a member of the Cavaliers, ONeal wore five different jerseys during his time in Cleveland, including these 1980s-era throwbacks.Boston CelticsONeals final stop on his NBA journey was Boston, where he suited up for the Celtics and faced off against former Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant one last time.Basketball Hall of FameWhen he was announced as a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, ONeal was given an honorary jersey -- though it has an unfamiliar number and looks a bit too small.

Speculation about a potential trade of Seattle Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas to the Dallas Cowboys ahead of the 2018 NFL season is reportedly overzealous.

It s a lot of media hype,  Damontre Moore Jersey  Cowboys source told Calvin Watkins of The Athletic. Seattle [is] not giving him away and we re not overpaying.

Thomas posted a message on Instagram this week asking the Hawks to either give him a contract extension or trade him elsewhere.

Extend .....if you don t want me let s make a trade happen. I understand it s a [business], he wrote.

In early July https://www.cowboysdaclub.com/joe-looney-jersey-c-65.html, Bryan Broaddus of the Cowboys official website said on 105.3 The Fan radio via the Dallas Morning News that a possible Thomas acquisition still is in play for Dallas.


Thomas was previously caught on camera after a December game telling Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett to come get me


The 29 year old University of Texas product has one year left on his contract, which carries a cap hit of 10.4 million in 2018 , per Spotrac.

Thomas https://www.cowboysdaclub.com/travis-frederick-jersey-c-64.html, a six time Pro Bowl selection and three time first team All Pro, racked up 88 combined tackles, seven passes defended, two interceptions and a forced fumble in 14 games last season. Pro Football Focus graded him as the league s ninth best safety.

He d represent an upgrade over the Cowboys projected starter, Jeff Heath, whom PFF rated as No. 35 last year.

Dallas is running out of time before the start of the new season https://www.cowboysdaclub.com/joey-ivie-jersey-c-66.html, however, and it doesn t sound like there s much concrete progress toward a trade despite the rumors.

Lewis Hamilton thinks Red Bull has looked incredibly strong in recent races and has become Mercedes closest competitor. Dzanan Musa Jersey .?Red Bull claimed a double podium in Germany, moving ahead of Ferrari and into second in the championship as a result. Team boss Christian Horner has already turned his attentions to cutting the gap to Mercedes after the summer break.Hamilton agrees the former world champions can continue to threaten in the second half of the season.Theyve got a very, very strong team, he said. I think Red Bull have definitely picked up with their engine performance but also theyve got great downforce. I dont know why they closed up a little bit more than others [in recent races] but theyre definitely looking incredibly strong.Ferrari looked strong at one point during the [German GP] weekend and then they seemed to fade off more so in the race, so Red Bull is definitely our closest competitor.Though he is impressed with the form of Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen, Hamilton thinks the strength of the Red Bull team goes way beyond its two drivers.Daniel is performing really well and so is Max, and its not just because of them its because theyve got a great team, just like my [Germany win] is not just because of me, its because of this great team.Despite moving ahead of Ferrari by 14 points, Red Bull still sits 159 behind the reigning world champions in the constructors championship.
