ATHENS, Ga. Cheap NFL Jerseys China .-- After back-to-back weekends on the road, the Georgia volleyball team (9-1) returned home and claimed a 3-1 victory over Florida A&M to remain undefeated at the Ramsey Center.Georgia took the game by scores of 25-19, 25-22, 23-25 and 25-21.I thought we were flat and a little sloppy, said head coach Lizzy Stemke on tonights performance. I want to give a lot of credit to Florida A&M and their serve game. They went back there and bombed balls that kept us out of system the entire match. When we were in our system, we were able to use our middles and gain some offense, but our serve and pass game was not where it has been and because of that its really hard for us to get into a steady rhythm. Desiree McCray and Maddie Lobenstein shined on the offensive side, as they had 15 and 14 kills, respectively. Defensively, libero Cassidy Anderson led the Bulldogs with a career-best 29 digs.The Rattlers were hard to shake early as they took a 15-10 lead in the first set, but Georgia quickly battled back after McCray delivered with two kills, getting the Bulldogs back in their rhythm. FAMU punched back to seize a 19-15 edge, but the home squad responded with 10-straight points to take the first frame, 25-19.After taking a second set in which the guests only lead was 2-1, Georgia entered the third looking to finish off the match. The third was close throughout, as the teams traded points, but the Bulldogs couldnt quite gain the upper hand and fell in a hard-fought 25-23 third set.Set four was not an easy victory for the Bulldogs, as the Rattlers kept it within two points for the majority of the set. With a 23-21 lead, McCray delivered with a clutch kill to halt the Rattlers momentum, and the Bulldogs claimed the next point as well for a 25-21 set win to seal the match.Georgia is back in action this weekend as it host the Bulldog Invitational and take on Bethune-Cookman in the first game of the tournament on Friday at 7 p.m. ET at the Ramsey Center. NBA Jerseys China . Colin Wilson had two goals and an assist, and Mike Fisher scored a goal and helped set up two others in the Predators 6-4 victory over the Red Wings on Monday night. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. http://www.cheapjerseysbasketball.com/ . After dropping their final six games of December, the Wild opened the new calendar year with four consecutive wins. Following a loss to Colorado on Saturday, Minnesota rebounded the following night to blank Nashville 4-0, but then had the tables turned on them Tuesday. Someday, an enterprising baseball writer will break new ground with the book, Great Moments in Intentional Walk History. It will be a relatively short work, in the mode of Yordano Venturas Guide to Baseball Etiquette or Great Icelandic Baseball Heroes.People who enjoy their baseball at a quicker pace regard the busywork entailed in an intentional walk as perhaps the most worthless interlude in the game. To them, its duller than a visit to the Department of Motor Vehicles, and the brief time that the pitcher and catcher spend playing catch isnt long enough to accommodate a restroom break or concession stand visit. So whats the point in continuing it?That thinking helps explain why Major League Baseball might be on the verge of eliminating the routine. As ESPN.coms Jayson Stark recently reported, MLBs competition committee has discussed a package of changes to reduce dead time and help speed the pace of play. One proposed change calls for a batter to take first base on an intentional walk without the formality of the pitcher having to throw four wide.Frankly, Im in favor of the auto walk, Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said in an email. Im a baseball history junkie and as a result tend to lean toward tradition. That said, as an industry we really do need to find subtle ways to create a quicker pace if we intend to remain relevant with the next generation of fans.Long-time MLB manager Jim Leyland, now a special assistant with the Detroit Tigers, agrees.Im all for it, Leyland said. Put up four [fingers] and tell the guy to go to first. Every blue moon one gets by the catcher, but Id like to see us put this through. Keep the pace of the game going. To me, its a no-brainer.Some basic math helps frame the debate. The average intentional walk takes 45 seconds to a minute to complete. MLB teams issue 900 to 1,000 intentional walks a season, which means 16 to 17 hours are invested in batteries playing catch. The average MLB season includes about 7,300 hours of game time, so MLB would shorten the season by about 0.2 percent with a change in the rules.Are baseballs decision-makers so intent on squeezing precious minutes and seconds that they make quirkiness obsolete?Theater of the absurdForget about cycles and no-hitters -- celebrated achievements that have occurred 250-300 times each since the start of the modern era in 1900. During that same 116-year span, the intentional walk-turned-hit is only slightly more commonplace than Randy Johnson vaporizing a bird with a pitch, or Adam Wainwright almost hitting a bird with a pitch.?I dont want to lose those moments where you can say, Ive never seen that before, said Phillies broadcaster and former big league pitcher Larry Andersen. If you eliminate the intentional walk, theres a chance youll lose one of those Ive-never-seen-this-before episodes. Those are part of what makes baseball great. Granted, theyre few and far between. But they keep the game a little more entertaining.In a 2011 Society for American Baseball Research article, historian Bill Deane recounted 11 instances in which a hitter swung at a pitch during an intentional walk and put the ball in play. Ty Cobb, Willie Mays and Pete Rose are among the members of this exclusive club.?Like squirrels cavorting on the field, botched IBBs appear every now and then to add a touch of intrigue or hilarity to the regularly scheduled proceedings.? In Game 3 of the 1972 World Series, with the count full on Johnny Bench, Oakland manager Dick Williams visited the mound and made a show of telling reliever Rollie Fingers to go ahead with the intentional walk. Bench, lulled into a false sense of security, stood motionless as As catcher Gene Tenace jumped back behind home plate and caught a fastball on the outer edge for strike three. Years later, Bench told Fingers the incident was the most embarrassing moment of his life.? Catcher Tony Pena, a veteran of 18 big-league seasons, was adept at faking out hitters by stepping outside the box, then hopping back into his crouch and catching strike three before the unsuspecting hitter knew what hit him. San Francisco Giants catcher Brian Johnson was victimized by the ruse during the 1997 season with Houston reliever John Hudek on the mound.?What a dummy I was, Johnson, now a scout with the Giants, said in a text message. Oh well. I guess I fell for the banana in the tailpipe. Johnson took the lapse less personally when informed that Pena also victimized Chiili Davis and John Olerud with the ploy. Wholesale NFL Jerseys. ?Perfect! he said. I feel better already.? Terry Francona achieved a distinction as one of the few (if not the only) players to be ejected from a game while receiving an intentional pass.Francona was playing for the Brewers in 1989 when he hit a line drive that Angels outfielder Dante Bichette clearly trapped, but umpire Ken Kaiser mistakenly ruled the play a catch.The atmosphere was still tense several weeks later when Kaiser was working home plate during a Milwaukee-Baltimore game. As pitcher Bob Milacki issued an intentional walk to Francona, Kaiser reportedly cracked, Can you believe theyre intentionally walking you?Replied Francona: If you werent so fat and hustled, you wouldnt have blown that call.Needless to say, Francona never got a chance to take first base.? Miguel Cabrera has made 10 All-Star teams and won two MVP awards, but the most novel sequence in his Hall of Fame-worthy career will never merit a mention on his plaque in Cooperstown.Cabrera was playing for the Marlins in 2006 when he reached out on a careless intentional walk offering from Baltimores Todd Williams and slapped it to center field for a run-scoring single.Upstairs in the booth, Orioles broadcaster Jim Palmer sputtered in exasperation and called it the type of play that happens in Little League.?? In 2004, Barry Bonds drew an astounding 120 intentional walks. The Giants responded by selling a rubber chicken named Walker in the team gift shop, and frustrated fans stood and twirled the chickens whenever opponents refused to challenge Bonds.This is another long-held baseball tradition: Regardless of the circumstances, if a home player is being walked, the home crowd responds with a torrent of boos.I guess its a sign of cowardice, Chicago Cubs broadcaster Jim Deshaies said. Youre not challenging our guy and giving him a chance to perform. Theres kind of a coliseum mindset. Youre half-waiting for them to drag the pitcher off and throw him to the lions because he intentionally walked a guy.For some, a four-pitch nightmareA 2-minute, 47-second YouTube compilation features assorted intentional walk disasters. John Axford, Lance McCullers Jr., Chris Withrow, Steve Cishek and Kevin Jepsen are among the pitchers who had to stew in their embarrassment after a failure to execute the most rudimentary task.?During the second half of Larry Andersens career, this was his reality.Andersen, remembered by many as the guy who was traded for Jeff Bagwell in 1990, made 699 appearances in a productive 17-year career. But as his time in the majors wound down, Andersen suffered from a bad case of the yips when throwing to first base and issuing intentional walks.In hindsight, Andersen says he thinks his problems began with a seemingly innocuous throw when he was pitching for Houston in 1986. In an attempt to pick off Pittsburghs Johnny Ray at first base, Andersen made a wild toss and nearly drilled Pirates first base coach (and his good friend) Tommy Sandt.Doubts began to creep into Andersens mind, and intentional walks elicited a sense of dread. Late in his career, Andersen threw about 90 percent sliders, and he felt off-kilter lobbing the ball home.I dont know of anybody else who threw breaking balls on intentional walks, but I would have been better off if I had done that, he said.Andersen hit rock bottom in a game with a young Craig Biggio behind the plate. As Andersen recalls, he threw the ball to home plate with a slow-pitch softball arc, and Biggio lost it in the lights and was tagged with a passed ball.My catchers had to be in full-on goalie mode, Andersen said. There was no telling where the ball was gonna go.Decades later, Andersen has conceived what he considers a fair compromise in the intentional walk debate.You know how they have a no-fly list for people who cant fly? Andersen said. They should have a no-free pass list for pitchers who cant throw intentional walks. Anybody whos done it five times with no problems, they dont have to make the throws. For somebody like me, they have to force them to do it.Sadistic? Perhaps. But Andersen falls squarely in the misery loves company camp in this debate.Ive gotta be honest -- I dont mind seeing other guys struggle with the same thing, he said. It makes me feel a little bit better about myself. Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '

INDIANAPOLIS -- Butler coach Chris Holtman looked troubled as he addressed the media on Saturday. Air Max Australia Free Shipping .Kelan Martin finished with 30 points and six rebounds, and Tyler Wideman added 10 points and 10 rebounds, and the 18th-ranked Bulldogs defeated Central Arkansas 82-58.Still, despite the 24-point blowout win, Holtmans disappointment in himself and his players was written all over his face, clearly weighing heavily on his mind.Holtman, who is in his third season as Butlers coach, noted that Central Arkansas bothered the Bulldogs (8-0) in a lot of ways. Holtman did not bring any Butler players with him to the podium after the game.Give Central Arkansas credit. I think they did a lot of things that bothered us. I dont think we played very well in stretches, I dont think we prepared very well. That concerned me the last couple of days. I dont think we practiced well. Ultimately thats on me. Thats my fault. You can come up with a couple of different explanations for (our performance), I just dont ever want to see it again, Holtman said.The Bulldogs looked impressive in the box score on Saturday. Butler scored 24 points off 16 Central Arkansas turnovers. The Bulldogs scored nearly half their points down low, finishing with 32 in the paint. Butler capitalized on 10 offensive rebounds by finishing the game with 16 second-chance points. One of the few compliments Holtman did give to his team was its ability to share the basketball and create opportunities. Butlers offense relied on good ball movement as 22 of its 31 field goals came by way of an assist.Butler played a good first half and went into halftime up by 12 points. The Bulldogs had their fair share of hiccups in the first half, turning the ball over a couple times and missing a few free throws. But the source of Holtmans frustration with his squads performance came in the second half, when it looked as if the Bears were going to give the Bulldogs a fight halfway through the final 20 minutes. Butler was forced to call a timeout with about 12 minutes remaining in the game due to Central Arkansas (1-7) cutting the deficit to just eight points.Following the timeout, Butler willed a 17-2 run to stretch the lead to 74-51. Butler opened up its run in the midst of a scoring drought for Central Arkansas. The Bears didnt make a field goal for nearly 7 minutes, shooting 1 of 9. Central Arkansas only two points during that time came by way of free throws.The Bulldogs largest lead of the game was a product of their second-half-scoring run, pulling ahead by 25 points.We are at our best when we understand our margin for error is very, very small and we have an understanding theres an expectation and a standard of how we want to play. I think we did that at times today, but not nearly as much as we need to. Were going to have to play better -- much better -- than what we did, Holtman said.Jordan Howard led Central Arkansas with 20 points and Derreck Brooks finished with 15.The road game was a measuring stick for Central Arkansas. The Bears used Saturdays game against a quality opponent as a foundation to work from for the rest of the season.Were trying to measure ourselves against really good teams and get better, Central Arkansas coach Russ Pennell said. When we play teams like Butler, and were going to be playing Michigan soon, its a chance to measure ourselves and our (players).BIG PICTUREWith a big win over No. 8 Arizona, the undefeated Bulldogs are generating a buzz. Butler will face five more opponents, including Cincinnati and No. 13 Indiana, before it opens conference play at St. Johns on Dec. 29.POLL IMPLICATIONS: The Bulldogs next big test against a ranked opponent will come on Dec. 17 when they face No. 13 Indiana in the Crossroads Classic at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in IndianapolisUP NEXT:Central Arkansas visits Arkansas-Little Rock on SaturdayButler visits Indiana State on Wednesday---More AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25. Womens Air Max Australia .5 seconds to play in the game, Kevin Love never stopped believing that they would come out of there with a win. Air Max Australia From China .4 million title.

They had already blown a double-digit lead, fans were hitting the exits, and a long seven-game road trip waited at the end. SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -- Trainer Eric Guillot, the court jester of the backstretch, had the last laugh in Saturdays Grade 2, $600,000 Jim Dandy Stakes at Saratoga.Guillot won the Jim Dandy with the maiden Laoban, the longest shot on the board at 27-1, who led from start to finish under Jose Ortiz and won by 1-1/4 lengths.Governor Malibu, the New York-bred who ran fourth in the Belmont Stakes, rallied along the inside to get second by a neck over Belmont Stakes runner-up Destin. It was 4-1/4 lengths back to Mohaymen, the 7-5 favorite who stumbled at the start. He was followed by Race Me Home and Creator, the Belmont Stakes winner who ran last throughout.Guillot had taken shots with Laoban before, running him in five graded stakes before this, including the Preakness, where he finished sixth, 12 lengths behind Exaggerator. He did finish second in the Grade 2 Gotham at Aqueduct and third in the Grade 3 Sham at Santa Anita.Guillot initially was going to Laoban in a maiden race here, but altered course when he was told by New York Racing Association officials the Jim Dandy was coming up a short field.They told me who was in there. I said, All the speed is across town in the Haskell, said Guillot, who trains Laoban for Mike Morenos Southern Equine Stable and McCormick Racing. I said you know what? Im going to take a shot. Hes doing good.My partner and I dont dance to elevator music, Guillot added. We dance to Zydeco. Who wants to run in a maiden? Hes multiple graded-stakes placed. I can break his maiden any time I want.Laobans weapon has always been his speed, but he had difficulty rationing it out properly. Saturday, under Jose Oritz, Laoban made the lead rather easily, maintaining a one-length advantage through a quarter in 24.56 seconds and a half-mile in 49.07 while being chased by Destin.Mohaymen, making his first start since the Kentucky Derby, stumbled at the start under Junior Alvarado, but quickly recovered and was third early. Alvarado said he did not think the stumble mattered or cost him a position.Laoban continued to cruise on the lead approaching the quarter pole and turned for home 1-1/2 lengths inn front. Air Max 90 Australia. Destin wasnt going on, but Governor Malibu was attempting to rally along the rail.Joel Rosario guided Governor Malibu off the rail at the sixteenth pole, but he and Destin both just finished evenly as Laoban kept going.Laoban, a son of Uncle Mo, covered the 1-1/8 miles in 1:48.39 and returned $56 to win.When he broke and I saw nobody put a lot of pressure on me I knew the horse was fit enough to go in this race, Ortiz said. On the backside they let me go easier. By the three-eighths pole I could hear theyre already smooching and Im just waiting. When I asked him to go right before the quarter pole he responded very well.The biggest mishap for Ortiz was galloping back to the winners circle when Laoban stumbled and unseated Ortiz. The horse continued back to the winners circle, where he was easily corralled. Ortiz got a ride back from the ambulance; he had a cut on his elbow, and a bruised ego perhaps.Aside from Governor Malibu, who ran a solid race, the other connections of Laobans vanquished were left to scratch their heads. Destin seemed to be in a good position early on under Javier Castellano, but just ran evenly and lost second by a neck to Governor Malibu.We got the trip we wanted, trainer Todd Pletcher said. Javier said he just feels like hes still a little unfocused, just kind of eyeballing that horse in front of him and, when Governor Malibu came, then he dug back in. He saw the [tire] tracks, then he went back to his left lead, like hes still figuring it out a little bit.Alvarado said turning for home Mohaymen was coming steady, but he didnt feel to me he was the same horse. I cant really figure it out right now.Steve Asmussen, the trainer of Belmont Stakes winner Creator, was compromised by a pedestrian pace.They went into the first turn in a canter, Asmussen said. A very oddly run race.The top three finishers from the Jim Dandy are all likely to come back in the Travers, along with Creator as well as Curlin Stakes 1-2 finishers Connect and Gift Box. Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseysCheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '

INDIANAPOLIS -- Klay Thompson kept his shooting touch in sync Monday night. Chelsea Tiemoue Bakayoko Jersey .All he needed was a trip to his second home.The All-Star guard again dazzled Indiana Pacers fans with a knockout performance. He scored 25 points in 26 minutes and took the entire fourth quarter off, leading the Golden State Warriors to a 120-83 rout for their eighth consecutive victory.It was the worst home loss for Indiana in its NBA history.Breakout games at Bankers Life Fieldhouse are becoming the norm for Thompson. He scored 16 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter and made a last-second shot to beat the division-leading Pacers 98-96 in March 2014. The next two times he came to town, Thompson scored 39 points in each game.This time, he went 10 of 18 from the field and 4 of 10 on 3-pointers.Hes a professional shooter, teammate and two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry said. Theres no two ways around it. Its the same process -- getting in the gym, getting shots up, never losing confidence and sticking with it.Especially when Thompson plays in Indiana.Curry finished with 22 points. Kevin Durant, the 2013-14 MVP, had 14 points, 11 rebounds and six assists for the Warriors.Indiana (7-8) looked tired after earning its first road win Sunday night in overtime at Oklahoma City. The Pacers also played short-handed, with three-time All-Star Paul George, starting center Myles Turner and backup forward C.J. Miles all out with injuries.The difference showed in Indianas most lopsided home defeat as an NBA franchise, breaking the previous mark set by the Los Angeles Clippers in a 102-68 rout.Rodney Stuckey led the Pacers with 21 points, Thaddeus Young had 14 and Indiana was never close after the first quarter.Tonight we just didnt have it, Pacers coach Nate McMillan said. It seemed like our legs were gone and we basically couldnt keep up with them.Golden State took control with an early 15-4 run, pulled away with a 13-4 spurt late in the second quarter and extended its 61-42 halftime lead to 100-71 after three. All the Warriors starters stayed on the bench in the fourth.THE HALFTIME SHOWAfter starting the game with four consecutive misses, Curry put on quite a show. He scored 12 in the first half and the rest of his points in the third quarter. But it was the 3-pointer that didnt count that drew the loudest roars from the crowd. A 70-footer dropped through the net as the buzzer sounded at the end of the first half. The shot prompted a replay review that showed the original call was correct -- the ball left Currys hands after the horn.UNWELCOME WAGONA couple of Pacers fans provided a not-so-warm welcome to the Warriors -- with some help from Reggie Miller. As one person held a sign using an altered version of Millers No. 31 jersey, which read Yall blew a 3-1 lead (hash)Dudnation, the fan next to him gave the choke sign Miller popularized during one of the Pacers memorable playoff series against the New York Knicks.TIP-INSWarriors: Finished 13 of 36 on 3-pointers, with six players making at least one. ... Golden State had 31 assists on 40 baskets. ... The Warriors grabbed a season-high 60 rebounds. ... Former Pacers forward David West drew a few boos when he made his first basket, early in the second quarter.Pacers: Point guard Jeff Teague left in the third with a sprained right ankle. McMillan said Teague could have played but the team opted to hold him out. ... Al Jefferson had four points and Glenn Robinson III added eight as the replacements for Turner and George, respectively. ... Indiana is 6-3 at home, where it will play its next three games.UP NEXTWarriors: Return home Wednesday for the first of two straight games against the Lakers. Earlier this month, Los Angeles won the first of four meetings this season.Pacers: Host Atlanta on Wednesday. It will be the first time Teague faces his former team since being traded to Indiana this summer. Chelsea Ross Barkley Jersey . -- Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis was charged Thursday with driving while intoxicated, a day after he was suspended for an NFL substance-abuse policy violation. Chelsea Fan Gear .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. http://www.cheapchelseajersey.com/?tag=chelsea-olivier-giroud-jersey .

TROON, Scotland -- It could be argued that Royal Troon, site of the 145th playing of The Open this week, was the first modern golf course used for the championship. NFL Jerseys Cheap Authentic . It replaced nearby neighbor Prestwick because the original venue used to stage the tournament was deemed insufficient to handle the growing number of spectators.Of course, Troons debut was way back in 1923, when several other Open venues had yet to find their way into what is now a list of 14 venues that have staged the worlds oldest championship. Troon -- which got the Royal distinction in 1978 -- is not the most famous, certainly not the most picturesque, but it has plenty of qualities as well as one oddity: Americans have won the past six Opens played at the venue on Scotlands West Coast, including out-of-nowhere champion Todd Hamilton in 2004.Where it ranks is the subject of considerable debate, a task that comes with no correct answers -- but well take a crack at it below. Keep in mind that it is unclear at this point whether Muirfield and Turnberry are out of the Opens future -- it could very well be temporary -- as four others are clearly no longer in use.?No. 14: Musselburgh; Musselburgh, Scotland (six Opens; first: 1874; last: 1889)Someone had to be last. A visit to the still-operational course remains a treat, but it is the venue furthest removed from hosting the championship, last doing so in 1889. The nine-hole course is a loop which is mostly contained within an existing horse race track, and it played a big part in the early days of the championship, as for a time it was rotated between Musselburgh, St. Andrews and Prestwick.Did You Know? Because of the race track, the course has a local rule that deals with the possibility of a ball landing in a hoof print -- from which you get free relief.No. 13: Princes; Sandwich, England (one Open: 1932).Located adjacent to Royal St. Georges, the course put three Open venues within a few miles of each other and got its one and only Open in 1932, when Gene Sarazen set a scoring record that stood for 18 years. Much of the course was destroyed during World War II as the Royal Air Force used it for bombing target practice. Although the greens were left mostly intact, the Open would never return.Did You Know? Sarazen led the only Open at Princes after every round and defeated Macdonald Smith by 5 strokes.No. 12: Royal Cinque Ports; Deal, England (two Opens: 1909, 1920)Located a few miles from Royal St. Georges, Deal, as it is commonly called, would have hosted the championship far more often were it not for world events. It lost out due to wars in 1915 and again in 1938.The 1949 Open scheduled for Cinque Ports was moved to Royal St. Georges because of flooding. An interesting moment in golf history occurred at Deal in 1920, when Walter Hagen defied orders to change in the pro shop -- as required of all professionals at the time. Pros were barred from the clubhouse, but Hagen had his limo driver park at the flagpole, where he would change his shoes each day. Hagen won The Open four times.Did You Know? When George Duncan won the championship at Royal Cinque Ports in 1920, he did so despite opening the tournament with consecutive scores of 80.No. 11: Royal St. Georges; Sandwich, England (14 Opens; first: 1894; last: 2011).Jack Nicklaus once allegedly said that the Open venues get worse the farther south you go, implying that St. Georges was his least favorite. The first course in England to host the championship and also the nearest to London, St. Georges has also been the site of the Open more than any other club south of the Scottish border and ranks fourth overall in total Opens hosted. Located near the Kent coast, on a clear day you can see France from the surrounding area.Did You Know? ?In his 1959 novel Goldfinger, author Ian Fleming used Royal St. Georges as the inspiration for Royal St. Marks, the course on which James Bond and Goldfinger play a round.No. 10: Royal Lytham & St Annes; Lytham St. Annes, England (11 Opens; first: 1926; last: 2012).The venue is approaching the stage where The Open has outgrown it because of logistical concerns. It starts with a par-3 and is not overly long, but it can be exacting, especially when the wind blows. Adam Scott bogeyed the final four holes to lose the championship to Ernie Els in 2012. Bobby Jones won the first Open at Lytham in 1926 and it took until 1996 for another American, Tom Lehman, to win at the course on Englands northwest coast.It is also where Englands Tony Jacklin became the events first home-grown winner in 1969. Before the final round of the 1926 championship, Jones had forgotten his competitors ticket and was refused access to the course by an unknowing attendant. Jones simply paid for admission. He went on to win the first of his three Opens.Did You Know? When Lytham staged The Open in 2012, it marked the first time in Open history that the championship was played in England in consecutive years. (It was at Royal St. Georges in 2011.)No. 9: Royal Liverpool; Hoylake, England (12 Opens; first: 1897; last: 2014)The place where Bobby Jones won the Open in 1930 -- the year he won the Grand Slam -- Royal Liverpool, often referred to as Hoylake, went on a long stretch without hosting the championship. The Open returned after a 39-year absence when Tiger Woods won in 2006, doing so by hitting just one driver. The previous Open to that was won by Roberto De Vicenzo in 1967. Rory McIlroy captured his lone Open title at Hoylake in 2014.Did You Know? In 1897, Hoylake was just the second course used in the Open rotation outside of Scotland.No. 8: Royal Troon; Troon, Scotland (eight Opens; first: 1923; last: 2004)Located next door to Prestwick, Troon, the site of this years Open, became a more logical place to stage the championship due to crowd and logistical issues. Troon has an out-and-back configuration similar to the Old Course, and the prevailing wind allows for a rather benign start followed by a fight to the finish.The famous postage stamp eighth hole is where Gene Sarazen made an ace at age 71 in the 1973 Open.Did You Know? Mark Calcavecchias 1989 victory was achieved during The Opens first four-hole playoff. He defeated Wayne Grady and Greg Norman, who had birdied the first six holes and shot a course-record 64, a mark that still stands.No. 7: Royal Portrush; Portrush, Northern Ireland (one Open: 1951)The one and only Open to be played outside of Scotland or England was at Royal Portrush -- and the R&A finally decided to go back. The home course of current European Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke -- as well as a frequent place of rounds for Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy -- Portrush will return to the rota in 2019 after several changes were made to the course to deal with logistical concerns. It is known for its stunning beauty and immense difficulty when the wind howls.Did You Know? Fred Daly, born and raised in Portrush and a member of the club, was the only Irishman to win the Open until Padraig Harringtons triumph in 2007. Daly won the title in 1947 at Hoylake.No. 6: Prestwick Golf Club; Prestwick, Scotland (24 Opens; first: 1860; last: 1925).The original home to The Open, Prestwick still rates because of its impressive beginnings, even though it is no longer suited to host a major. The first 12 Opens were played at Prestwick, and 15 of Prestwicks 24 Opens were played on a 12-hole layout that was not revamped until the late 1880s. Today only four of the original holes remain, but the quirky layout is filled with history.Did You Know? In 1870, Tom Morris Jr. won for the third straight time and started the tournament with a 3 on what was then a 578-yard opening hole that played as a par-6.No. 5: Carnoustie Golf Club; Carnoustie, Scotland (seven Opens; first: 1931; last: 2007)Considered one of the toughest courses in the world, Carnoustie would have more than the seven Opens on its résumé were it not for logistical concerns that kept the tournament from being played there for 24 years. Ben Hogan won his first and only Open at Carnoustie in 1953. Tom Watson won the first Open he played in 1975 at Carnoustie. Jean Van de Velde became infamous in 1999 for his final-hole implosion and a playoff defeat.Did You Know? When Hogan won the title in 1953, he was not exempt for the tournament. He, like everyone else, had to first endure 36-hole qualifying, which he accomplished at nearby Panmure. Hogan won and never returned to Scotland.No. 4: Royal Birkdale; Southport, England (nine Opens; first: 1954; last: 2008)Located along northwest Englands finest stretch of links golf, Royal Birkdale is a relative newcomer to the Open rotation and arguably the best of the four venues that are located in England. The course didnt have its first Open until 1951, when Australian Peter Thomson won the first of three straight, but it will host the championship for the 10th time next year. It is where Padraig Harrington won the second of consecutive Opens in 2008, surging past 52-year-old Greg Norman over the final nine holes.Did You Know? Not only will Birkdale host The Open for the 10th time next year, it has staged the Womens British Open on six occasions, the most recent in 2014.No. 3: Turnberry, Ailsa Course; Turnberry, Scotland (four Opens; first: 1977; last: 2009)This is the most picturesque of the Open venues, hence such a high ranking for a course that has hosted the championship just four times. The last to join the rotation in 1977, Turnberry has yet to disappoint, with Tom Watsons Duel in the Sun with Jack Nicklaus in 1977, followed by Greg Normans first major title in 1986, a memorable finish for Nick Price in 1994 and Watsons remarkable run at becoming the oldest major champion at age 59 - which ended in a playoff defeat to?Stewart Cink?-- in 2009.Photos of the Ailsa Craig off the Turnberry coast are some of the most popular in golf. New owner Donald Trump has poured millions into a renovation of both the hotel, clubhouse and course, including a dramatic shifting of holes along the course that promise to make the venue even better. Trumps controversial remarks have put future Opens on hold.Did You Know? During both World War I and World War II, Turnberry was used as a military air base, with the hotel turned into a hospital for the wounded.No. 2: Muirfield; Gullane, Scotland (16 Opens; first: 1892; last 2013)Muirfield is one of the oldest clubs in the world and often cited as the fairest of the Open venues. From a playability standpoint and offering a championship test, many players refer to it as the best course in the rota. Its status as a future host remains in doubt because of the clubs recent decision to not accept any female members, although that is said to be under review.Opened in 1891, it became a frequent site of The Open, replacing nearby Musselburgh. The list of winners at Muirfield says it all: Harry Vardon, Walter Hagen, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Nick Faldo, Ernie Els and Phil Mickelson.Did You Know? Muirfield is the golf course but the club is properly known as the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers.No. 1: The Old Course; St. Andrews, Scotland (29 Opens; first: 1873; last: 2015)You would be hard pressed to leave the home of golf from the top of any list ranking The Open venues. It might not be the most scenic, certainly is not the most difficult. But its place in the game, its identity, its iconic nature and the way the golf course is part of the fabric of St. Andrews all conspire to make it No. 1.It is virtually the same course taken care of by Old Tom Morris in the late 19th century, and has also produced some of the biggest winners in the game, including Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods twice each. Last year Zach Johnson won in a memorable Monday playoff at the Old Course in which Jordan Spieth -- bidding for the third leg of the Grand Slam -- missed by a single shot.Did You Know? The R&A Clubhouse, which sits behind the first tee and 18th green, was built in 1854 and became home to golfs governing body (outside of the U.S. and Mexico) in 1897. China Jerseys . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. Cheap China Jerseys . With his new coach and six-time Grand Slam singles champion Boris Becker watching him during an official match for the first time, Djokovic appeared tentative early against the Slovakian player, who often appeared content to keep the ball in play. http://www.chinanfljerseyscheaponline.com/ . "I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from. NEW YORK -- The US Open -- and the 2016 Grand Slam season -- are history.Sure, there are 15 WTA events left on the calendar and 14 on the mens side, plus the Davis Cup semifinals and final, but it all feels a little anticlimactic.As a public service, only 127 days before the first ball at the Australian Open, were going to give you tomorrows news today.Here are 10 bold predictions for the 2017 season:Rafa wins the French Open: After taking nine titles in 10 years at Roland Garros, Rafael Nadal has come up painfully short the past two years. He got to the quarters in 2015, but withdrew from this years tournament after his second-round match with a wrist injury. Healthy again, he plows through the field like its 2005. This gives Rafa 10 French Open titles, making him the first (and last?) to hit double digits in a single Slam. It is an immensely popular victory, akin to Roger Federers sentimental win at Wimbledon in 2012.A match made in ... Mercurial Australian Nick Kyrgios, in need of a coach, turns to equally mercurial American John McEnroe. Madness, fireworks -- and wonder of wonders -- great tennis ensues. Its such a crazy combination it actually works. But they part ways after Wimbledon, and McEnroe joins the camp of ... mercurial Frenchman Gael Monfils, another player he criticized here at the US Open.Serenas over-under: She won the first three Slams of 2015, but Williams has gone 1-for-5 since. After taking off the fall Asian swing, the 35-year-old resurfaces in 2017 and plays decently into the summer. Just as she did this year, Serena wins at Wimbledon -- the only major she will win -- giving her a stellar eight titles at the All England Club. Jay Z and Beyonce watch from the Royal Box.Noles over-under: Novak Djokovic, on the other hand, is still in his prime, even though he turns 30 before the French Open. He wins in Melbourne (for the seventh time, when the other 127 players in the draw abruptly withdraw), then takees the title at Wimbledon for his fourth.dddddddddddd That pushes his Grand Slam singles total to 14, one behind Nadal -- who had just won the French a few weeks earlier -- and only three behind Federers all-time total.Halep and Raonic break through: Congratulations to your first-time Grand Slam winners. Simona Halep, who reached the final of Roland Garros in 2014, finally locks it down in Paris. Milos Raonic, a finalist at Wimbledon in 2016, finds a way to win in New York.Federer returns in style: No, he doesnt actually add to his Grand Slam singles titles, but just seeing Federer hovering effortlessly around on the worlds greatest courts is deeply comforting. He gets to the semis at Roland Garros and Wimbledon, but thats as far as it goes.Vika makes a splash: After giving birth at the end of 2016, Victoria Azarenka, the 28-year-old mother, steps on the court in Cincinnati, where she was a champion four years earlier. This sets her up for a euphoric return to the Grand Slam stage in New York.Delpo stays healthy: Gangly Argentine?Juan Martin del Potro, survivor of four wrist surgeries, continues to progress. His confidence increases, and by the French Open, hes hitting those nasty, two-handed backhands that helped him win the 2009 US Open. Del Potro makes the final in New York again, but loses to Raonic.Surprise! Sharapovas back: Speaking of returns, Maria Sharapova gets her two-year sentence reduced via appeal. After serving one full year, she comes back for the spring clay campaign and is part of the draw in Paris, the only Slam where she is a two-time champion.Venus bids farewell: Venus Williams, at the age of 37, dominates the fall Asian circuit, winning three titles in China, then announces her retirement. She says shes done as a player, but will immediately begin coaching ...

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Stacy Lewis made 11 birdies on Thursday to match the low score at Olympic Golf Course with an 8-under 63, putting her right in the mix for a gold medal in womens golf. NFL Jerseys Outlet .As well as a low score, Lewis had red shoulders by the end of a sunny day. She always wears short sleeves, but her Team USA uniform didnt fit. Her only option was to go with the sleeveless version, which showed off shoulders that never get any sun.She still had a patriotic look, walking to the first tee with a blue shirt and white shoulders that turned red by days end.The American had no complaints about her golf or her position at the halfway point of the first Olympic womens golf competition since 1900. Lewis was one shot behind South Koreas Inbee Park, who birdied her last two holes for another 5-under 66 and the 36-hole lead.Charley Hull kept alive British hopes for a gold-medal sweep in golf with a 66 that left her two shots behind Park.Lewis piled up the birdies, finishing with four in a row, the last one the most unlikely. Her tee shot on the par-5 18th failed by a foot to clear a bunker, and the ball stayed on the steep slope of soft sand.I would have taken par and ran to the clubhouse, Lewis said.Instead, she hit one of her best shots with a 7-iron to advance it down the fairway, and then did even better with a hybrid from 199 yards to 4 feet for her 63.I was just trying to get a third shot after that lie in the bunker, Lewis said. I hit the shot of the week there.Marcus Fraser of Australia also shot a 63 in the opening round of the mens competition last week on a course set up about 900 yards longer.Lewis had no idea how many birdies she made or even how low she had shot until signing her card. All that mattered was a chance to win gold in what she considers the biggest week of her year -- next to her marriage Aug. 6 to Houston womens golf coach Gerrod Caldwell.A former No. 1 in the world, Lewis has gone more than two years since her last victory. She was irritated with her swing during the opening round and even after her practice session Thursday morning. Seeing a lot of putts go in can change everything.But it was her one bad hole that enabled Lewis to finish so well. Tied for the lead after a birdie on the 13th, she hit 4-iron into the bunker on the par-3 14th and blasted out weakly to 25 feet. After seeing so many putts go in, she charged her par putt about 4 feet by the hole and missed that one, taking double-bogey.I was a little bit mad after the double on 14 and got my focus back instead of going the other way, she said.She birdied the next two holes, then converted a 25-foot birdie putt from the fringe on the 17th and finished with her best birdie of the round.Park made her first bogey of the tournament on No. 7, but that was the only green she missed. She missed a 5-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole, and then converted birdies on the last two to reach 10-under 132. She figures to be a big part of the final two rounds the way she has kept the ball in play.Im going to try to keep calm as much as I can, she said. Im confident with everything, but I dont want to put too much pressure on myself.Hull didnt arrive in Rio until Sunday night and wasnt at the golf course when Justin Rose won golfs first Olympic gold since 1904 with a birdie on the final hole to defeat British Open champion Henrik Stenson.Lagging behind was Lydia Ko, the No. 1 player in the world and the favorite coming into the week. She could muster only a 70 and was seven shots out of the lead. Ariya Jutanugarn, who led after the opening round, was playing with Lewis and couldnt keep up. She shot a 72 and fell five shots out of the lead.The surprise was Aditi Ashok, the 18-year-old from India who had another 68 and was four shots out of the lead. Cheap Jerseys From China .5 million, one-year contract on Friday.

TORONTO -- One playoff avenue closed for the New York Yankees. Their second may soon slide shut, as well.Francisco Liriano and three relievers combined on a three-hitter, Troy Tulowitzki had four RBI and the Toronto Blue Jays routed the Yankees 9-0 Friday night to maintain a one-game lead in the AL wild-card standings.New York lost for the ninth time in 12 games, following a seven-game winning streak, and was eliminated from contention in the AL East.The Yankees are four games behind Detroit for the second wild care with nine games left.Things are kind of slipping away at this point, outfielder Brett Gardner said. Were not out of it, but were definitely not in a good position.Josh Donaldson hit a two-run homer and Edwin Encarnacion got his 124th RBI, tied with Bostons David Ortiz for the AL lead, as the Blue Jays won their sixth straight home game over New York.Toronto has won five of eight after going 3-9 starting September.Gary Sanchez had two hits for the Yankees, who were shut out for the second straight night and the fifth time this month. New York has gone 0 for 12 with runners in scoring position in their last two games and stranded 17 runners.Its not what you want, manager Joe Girardi said. Its frustrating.Girardis frustration was plainly evident. He cut short his postgame media session and angrily walked out of his office following a question about bullpen usage.Liriano (8-13) escaped a bases-loaded jam by striking out Chase Headley to end a 27-pitch first inning, then left runners at the corners after the first two batters reached in the third. That was the start of a stretch that saw the left-hander retire nine straight.Liriano allowed three hits, walked two and struck out six for his second win with Toronto.Liriano was was really, really good, manager John Gibbons said. Hes got one of the better arms in baseball.Reliever Joaquin Benoit walked Aaron Hicks to begin thee seventh but pinch-hitter Brian McCann grounded into a double play. China Jerseys Outlet. Brett Cecil worked the eighth and Danny Barnes finished.Tulowitzki opened the scoring with a two-out, bases-loaded single off Bryan Mitchell (1-2) in the first and Encarnacion made it 3-0 with a bases-loaded walk in the second.Mitchell allowed three runs -- one earned -- and six hits in six innings.Jose Bautista hit a two-run double off Blake Parker in the seventh and Tulowitzki added a second two-run single.Donaldson homered off Ben Heller in the eighth, his 36th.DECISION PENDINGGirardi said he has not decided who will start in place of RHP Masahiro Tanaka (strained forearm) in Mondays series finale. Tanaka leads the American League with a 3.07 ERA.HAL AND THE BABY BOMBERSYankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner watched some of New Yorks top prospects work out Friday at instructional league in Tampa, Florida.

The duo had led India to win in a similar pattern in the first ODI as well - Gayakwad had taken a four-for and Krishnamurthy had scored a fifty.This was both teams final ICC Womens Championship game. West Indies, who needed just one win at the start of the series to seal automatic qualification to the World Cup next year, remain in fourth place with 22 points. They now have an outside chance of missing out on automatic qualification, should South Africa whitewash Australia in the three-match series beginning from November 18.

In its effort to overturn the four-game suspension that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell imposed on Tom Brady, the NFL Players Association has spent more than $3. Cheap Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys .5 million on legal fees, according to detailed billing records filed with the U.S. Department of Labor. The expenses continue to build as the union ponders a possible attempt to interest the U.S. Supreme Court in the dispute.Like all labor organizations in the U.S., the NFLPA must file detailed financial reports with the federal government. The 466-page report was submitted two months ago and covers the year that began on March 1, 2015, and ended on Feb. 29. The listing of expenses includes the monthly payments to Winston & Strawn, the law firm that, led by attorney Jeffrey Kessler, performed all of the work on Deflategate until the union added the highly regarded appellate advocate Ted Olson to its legal team earlier this year. The work of Olson and his firm, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, which likely ran into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, came too late to be included in the report.Although there has been considerable speculation about the legal fees that the league and the union have invested in a dispute over the inflation of footballs, these billings are the first report of the actual fees that the union paid. There is no legal requirement that the NFL make public reports of its legal fees.?For the preparation and presentation of evidence in the one-day arbitration hearing before Goodell, the union paid its lawyers $1,328,273, according to the listings in the report for April, May and July of 2015.In its successful challenge to Goodells ruling before U.S. District Court Judge Richard Berman, the union spent another $1,563,380 for two days of hearings.The preparation and filing of briefs in response to the leagues appeal of Bermans ruling resulted in $687,566 for the union.The total expense of $3,570,219 does not include the work that Olson did after the appellate courts 2-1 decision that reversed Judge Berman and reinstated Bradys four-game suspension. After the deadline for the filing of the unions annual report had expired, Olson prepared an extensive brief asking for rehearing and orchestrated the filing of supporting briefs from the AFL-CIO, famed arbitrator Kenneth Feinberg, and various professors in support of rehearing.?It is likely that Olsons bills to the union for the effort on rehearing are at least the equal of Kesslers bills for the appeal, which ran around $700,000. Olsons bills will not be made public until the union files its next annual report in May of 2017.Based on the actual bill in the annual report and the estimate of Olsons charges, the cost to each of the unions 2,000 members for pursuit of the lifting of Bradys suspension is $2,000.A union spokesman emphasized, however, in an interview with ESPN.com that the players dues ($15,000 per year) are not used for legal fees. The fees are instead funded out of the unions enormous income from royalties paid to it for NFL paraphernalia under the collective bargaining agreement. Although it is not specifically stated in the public reports, an analysis of other revenue figures in the reports shows that the unions royalties in 2015 were more than $138 million. Dues paid by the players for the same year were $32,168,380. The unions budget for legal fees is approved by its board of player representatives at the groups annual budget adoption meeting, according to the spokesman. It is one of our most in-depth sessions, he said.In addition to the annual review, the unions executive committee meets monthly to approve all spending on legal fees.Although the unions investment in the Brady dispute may seem large, it could be small in comparison to the NFLs expenditures. The league is not required to make public reports of the fees that it pays, but during the course of a Brady appeal hearing, attorney Ted Wells estimated the price of his investigation into Deflategate to be $2.5 million to $3 million. That is, of course, only a fraction of what the NFL has spent in its pursuit of Brady. Cheap San Francisco Giants Jerseys . Brandon Morrow allowed five runs on six hits over three innings.
