TORONTO -- Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp is expected to miss the three-game series against the Blue Jays after spraining his left ankle. Markelle Fultz Jersey . Out of the lineup for 11 games with a sore left shoulder, Kemp came off the 15-day disabled list before Sundays 9-2 win over the Washington Nationals. He went 3 for 4 with a home run, but limped off the field after sliding into home plate on a force play in the ninth inning. After the Dodgers beat Toronto 14-5 without Kemp on Monday night, manager Don Mattingly said X-rays were negative. "Well see how it looks tomorrow, if its any better," Mattingly said. "Well wait and see." Kemp was walking around the Dodgers clubhouse with a boot on his ankle following the game. Earlier Monday, Mattingly was less optimistic that Kemp would avoid a return to the DL. "Im probably not feeling as good about it as I did yesterday," Mattingly said. "It could go the wrong direction. Either this things going to get (better) and well know pretty quickly or its going to be a little more severe." Mattingly said Kemp came to the stadium at noon Monday and spent the afternoon undergoing treatment. He was expected to do the same Tuesday. Kemp missed 24 games in May and June with a sore right hamstring. A two-time All-Star, two-time Gold Glove winner and two-time Silver Slugger, hes batting .263 with five homers and 27 RBIs in 62 games this season. Kemp walked in the ninth Sunday and was on third with two outs when Carl Crawford hit a slow roller toward first. It would have been an infield hit had Kemp hustled home. Instead, he jogged and allowed the Nationals to make a play at the plate. He was hurt sliding into the catcher. Mattingly saw no need to speak to Kemp about not running hard. "Theres no reason," he said. "Once that happens to a guy, they understand right away." Sundays game marked the first time that Kemp, Hanley Ramirez and Crawford had appeared together in the starting lineup this season. Rookie Yasiel Puig started in centre against Toronto on Monday, with Andre Ethier at DH. Mattingly said Ethier would likely return to centre Tuesday and Wednesday. "Luckily were in the American League (ballpark) where its not quite the same, you dont need all the extra players," Mattingly said. "We feel like we can kind of get by. Anytime you play without him youre going to play short, but with the DH you dont worry about it quite as much." The Dodgers begin a four-game series against Cincinnati in Los Angeles on Thursday.

ELeague Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Season 2 playoffs continued Friday evening as Group D play kicked off with a nail-biting overtime finish as well as a blowout in the Grand Finals, with Dignitas coming out on top.Dignitas defeats Fnatic in Grand FinalDignitas put together a strong performance against Fnatic in the Grand Final match, earning a commanding victory over the Swedes. Dignitas Emil Magiskb0Y Reif and Mathias MSL Lauridsen led the team with a combined 250.3 average damage per round (ADR), shutting down Fnatics offense and defense.Dignitas jumped out to a huge 12-3 lead at halftime, thanks in large part to impressive plays by Kristian k0nfig Wienecke and Rene cajunb Borgo, who each earned pivotal quad kills throughout the first half. It was more of the same in the second half, as Dignitas easily swept the remaining four rounds, earning a convincing 16-3 victory. With the victory, Dignitas will now have the best seed in Group D for the ELeague playoffs, which start Nov. 30. Fnatic will need to win their match Saturday against the winner of EnVyUs or OpTic Gaming in order to earn their spot in the quarterfinals.Best of the RestThe writing may have been on the wall for Fnatic based on their first matchup of the day against OpTic Gaming. While the Swedes did manage to earn their trip to the Grand Finals, it certainly wasnt easy, as they were forced to knock off OpTic in overtime. The team jumped out to an early 5-0 lead thanks to Joakim disco doplan Gidetun and Olof olofmeister Kajbjer, who each picked up aa pair of quad kills in the first handful of matches. Darryl Dawkins Jersey. However, the Green Wall was able to maintain composure and rally back to maintain a 8-7 lead at halftime. The second half was a battle between Fnatic and Optic as each team went back and forth between rounds until Freddy KRIMZ Johansson picked up a quad kill in the 23rd round to give Fnatic momentum. Following KRIMZs quad kill, Fnatic won five consecutive rounds before Optic came back to win three of their own to send the first match into overtime.Despite losing the first two matches of the overtime period, Fnatic was able to rally off four consecutive round wins to win the overtime period and the series, thanks in large part to KRIMZ and Olof olofmeister Kajbjer, who both made critical plays late to push the Swedes into the finals.The eventual Group D winners made their way into the Grand Finals thanks to a win over Team EnVyUs. Ruben RUBINO Villarroel -- who lead his team with an impressive 112.8 ADR -- was remarkable in the series, coming up with clutch kills throughout the contest. Thanks to solid performances from the team as a whole, Dignitas was able to enter the second half with a 9-6 advantage. That lead quickly grew wider thanks to EnVyUs struggles in the second half, in particular during clutch round-ending situations. René cajunb Borg put the game away for Dignitas, helping the team win four consecutive rounds to close out the series with a 16-12 win.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Less than a week before the opening of the Olympics, IOC leaders will meet in Rio de Janeiro this weekend to review the final preparations for the games and deal with the fallout from the doping scandal that has led to the exclusion of more than 100 Russian athletes. Julian Edelman Jersey .The International Olympic Committees ruling executive board opens a two-day meeting on Saturday, its last formal gathering before next Friday nights opening ceremony at the Maracana stadium.The meeting comes less than a week after the IOC board decided not to ban Russias entire team from the games because of state-sponsored doping. Rejecting calls by more than a dozen anti-doping agencies for a complete ban on Russia, the IOC left it to individual sports federations to vet which athletes could compete or not.Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said Friday that, so far, 272 of the countrys athletes had been cleared by international federations, out of an original team of 387. More than 100, however, have been barred -- including the track and field team banned by the IAAF and more than 30 other athletes rejected under new IOC eligibility criteria.Russias eight-member weightlifting team was kicked out of the games on Friday for what the international federation called extremely shocking doping results that brought the sport into disrepute.The IOC has been roundly criticized by anti-doping bodies, athletes groups and Western media for not imposing a total ban on Russia. Pressure for the full sanction followed a World Anti-Doping Agency report by Canadian lawyer Richard McLaren that accused Russias sports ministry of overseeing a vast doping conspiracy involving the countrys summer and winter sports athletes.Bach has defended the decision as protecting individual athletes from collective punishment.This is a decision we just had the opportunity to discuss with some athletes, Bach said in Rio. I think the general feeling is that it is appreciated that, on the one hand, we are sanctioning a (doping) system, but on the other hand we have given athletes who were not part of the system the opportunity to demonstrate this and then to be allowed to take part in the Olympic Games.Rios preparations, meanwhile, remain clouded on several fronts, including budget cuts, raw sewage that pollutes the sites of rowing, sailing, canoeing, open water swimming and triathlon, slow ticket sales, and concerns over crime and the Zika virus. The games come with the president awaiting an impeachment trial and the country gripped by a severe recession.The Australians and at least eight other Olympic teams complained this week about their accommodations in the athletes village, citing plumbing leaks, electrical faults and dirty conditions. On Friday, Australian athletes and staff had to be evacuated from their building after a small fire broke out in the basement. They returned safely after about 20 minutes.Bach remains publicly upbeat.In the end you will see a fantastic Olympic Village and great games, he said. The Brazilians will overwhelm all of us with their passion, with their joy of life, their great hospitality, and with their energy.The full IOC will hold a three-day session next week, starting Tuesday. A top item on the agenda is Wednesdays vote on a recommendation to add five sports to the program of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics -- baseball/softball, surfing, karate, skate boarding and sport climbing.The proposed sports -- backed by the executive board and to be voted on as a package -- would add 18 events and 474 athletes to the program.An IOC program commission report released on Friday said the five sports are a blend of the traditional and emerging, youth-focused events, and all have international and local appeal.--This story has been corrected to show that skate boarding not roller skating is one of the 5 proposed new sports for 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Torrey Mitchell Jersey . -- The Philadelphia Flyers are the hottest team in hockey.Wayne Simmonds scored two power-play goals and Philadelphia beat the Nashville Predators 4-2 on Sunday night to win its fifth consecutive game.Playing in front of a sellout crowd, the Flyers (14-10-3) earned their second road victory in two days against a Central Division team. They defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 3-1 on Saturday.The Predators (11-9-4) lost in regulation for only the second time in 12 home games this season.Weve got everything clicking. Our penalty kill has done a great job, our power play has scored some big goals and (goalie Steve Mason) has been standing on his head every night, Flyers defenseman Michael Del Zotto said. At the start of the year, wed have one good game and kind of get complacent. Now were just keeping our foot on the gas. We keep playing well, playing as five-man units.Simmonds, who leads the Flyers with 13 goals, scored twice against what had been a stingy Nashville penalty-kill at home. The Predators did not allow a power-play goal in their first 10 home games, but have given up three in their last two games.Hes doing what he does every night, Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said. If theres a better guy in the league net-front, whether its on power play or 5-on-5, I dont know who that is.What I really like about Simmer is that hes at net-front, hes scoring goals, hes on the power play. But hes a hard-nosed, 200-foot player.Michael Raffl gave Philadelphia its third one-goal lead with 3:23 left in the second period. He bulled his way past Nashville defenseman Mattias Ekholm, cut across the crease and slipped the puck beyond the reach of goalie Juuse Saros for a 3-2 advantage.Chris VandeVelde capped the scoring with an empty-net goal with 26.3 seconds remaining.Colin Wilson tied it at 2 for the Predators with 8:41 to go in the second, lifting a short-range backhand past Mason. Mike Fisher sent Wilson in alone on goal with a nice cross-ice pass from just inside the blue line.Nashville has 35 goals in the second period this season, one fewer than the team has totaled in the first and third combined.It was a tough weekend for the Predators, who lost to New Jersey 5-4 in overtime Saturday after the Devils rallied from a three-goal deficit in the third period.Last night was a great effort until the third period and we had a meltdown there, Nashville forward Filip Forsberg said Sunday. That cant happen, and today it was kind of the opposite. We started off not good and then we kind of got going as the game went. ... Everyone needs the points no matter where you are in the standings and the inspiration level has to be higher from the start.Simmonds second power-play goal of the night put the Flyers up 2-1 with 13:13 left in the second period. Simmonds stationed himself in front of the Nashville net and stuffed a shot under Saros.The Predators tied it 1-all with 16:43 left in the second when Calle Jarnkrok scored his fourth goal of the season. Jarnkrok redirected Ekholms drive from the blue line past Mason.The Flyers converted on their second power play of the game to take a 1-0 lead with 1:48 left in the opening period. Brayden Schenn ripped a shot from the faceoff circle, and Simmonds goal-mouth deflection bounced off the knob of Saros stick and into the net.Game notes Nashville forward Reid Boucher, picked up off waivers from New Jersey on Saturday, made his Predators debut. ... Philadelphias Claude Giroux got his 367th career assist, moving past Rod BrindAmour into sixth place in franchise history. ... The game marked the fourth of 13 sets of back-to-back games for the Predators this season. ... The Flyers played their seventh set of back-to-back games, and will play another one next weekend. ... Philadelphia has beaten Nashville four straight times. The teams meet again on Dec. 19.UP NEXTFlyers: Host the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.Predators: Host the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night. Jeff Petry Jersey . Reassurance came from Paul Tesori, his caddie and close friend whose newborn son is in intensive care in a Florida hospital. "Paul sent me a text this morning, just told me he loved me and wanted to go out and fight as hard as I would any other day," Simpson said Sunday after doing just that. Guy Lapointe Jersey . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. http://www.canadiensauthority.com/authentic-serge-savard-canadiens-jersey/ . The No. 1-ranked Nadal tweaked his back warming up for the Australian Open final, which he lost almost four weeks ago in a major upset against Stanislas Wawrinka.

SALT LAKE CITY -- What started as an easy night on the court turned into another tough fourth quarter for the Utah Jazz, who blew a 19-point lead and were outscored in the period for the third straight game.Gordon Hayward scored 28 points and the Jazz held on for a 112-105 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night, their seventh win in eight games.Its human nature, Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. When you have some separation, sometimes its easier to let down. Its something that really good teams figure out a way to overcome. I dont think were there, but we did find a way tonight.Rudy Gobert scored a career-high 22 points and had 11 rebounds and blocked four shots for the Jazz, who recovered after the Suns erased a 23-point lead to tie it at 103.Ive been working hard since I got here, Gobert said. I always want to improve, thats the main thing for me. Thats what Im going to keep doing.Hayward had 11 third-quarter points to reach 20-plus points for the ninth consecutive game -- the first Jazz player to do so since Carlos Boozer in 2007-08.The Jazz sprinted out to a 25-10 lead thanks to an 8-0 run and never trailed. They led 65-45 at halftime after Haywards pull-up 3-pointer highlighted a half-closing 11-2 stretch. The 65 points matched a Jazz season high for a half.Devin Booker scored 21 points for the Suns, who couldnt complete the comeback.That (second) unit came in and played selfless, Suns coach Earl Watson said. They gave up all their energy on defense and offensively they moved the ball, created the tempo and played amazing perimeter defense.TIP-INSSuns: Phoenix turned over the ball 13 times in the first half and Utah converted them into 19 points. ... The Suns made six 3-pointers after hitting 10 in the previous three games.Jazz: George Hill missed his fourth consecutive game with a sprained left big toe. ... Hill and Haywardd have played just five games together and the Jazz are 5-0 in those games. Jonathan Drouin Jersey. ... Rodney Hood did not return after halftime with a sore right hamstring.BACK ON THE BENCHSnyder was the latest member of the Jazz to be forced from a game due to a physical ailment. He missed Mondays game against the Lakers due to an illness, but returned Tuesday. Snyder said its the first time hes ever missed a game as an assistant or head coach in 20 years.It was strange, Snyder said. I had a small fever and then about midway through the fourth quarter, my fever jumped to over 103. So it was good I wasnt out there. It would have been unfair to the players and the staff.HEY HEY, HAYWARDHayward is averaging career highs in points and rebounds and is playing at an All-Star level. Watson played three seasons in Utah, Haywards first three seasons.He reminded me of a young Jerry West, Watson said. Gordon has it, man. ... I knew it, I could see it immediately. There was something special about him. The unique part about him is he can impact the game beyond scoring.I remember Gordon just had this unique way about him. It was his rookie year. We played the Lakers. ... Gordon Hayward ran a pick-and-roll going to his left, Kobe was chasing him. Gordon jumped, lost the ball in the air, jumped off the right leg, got the ball and dunked it. I was like, `Oh (shoot) this kid is special.QUOTABLEWe got to understand that the game is not over until it is finished and we believe that, Suns guard Leandro Barbosa said.UP NEXTSuns: Phoenix hosts a Pacers team it beat by 20 in Indiana in their last meeting on Nov. 18.Jazz: Utah hosts Golden State on Thursday in their first meeting since Kevin Durant joined the Warriors during the offseason.

Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee? Green had bounced around the NBA when he wasnt playing overseas. The Pacers gave up on Plumlee after just one season. Now Green and Plumlee are key cogs in the Suns surprising breakout season. The moment the checkered flag dropped at Martinsville, I began considering what a seventh title for Jimmie Johnson would mean to our sport.For most of my life, I felt Jeff Gordon would be the only human capable of matching the monumental feat of seven championships that only?Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt?have accomplished -- and then along came Jimmie.We have been tempted by this happening for a couple of years, since Johnson won his sixth in 2013, but this is the closest its come to a reality.Jimmie Johnsons chances in my opinion? Pretty damned good!Heres why:Johnson is the winningest driver on 1.5-mile tracks. He is very good on all other disciplines, but the intermediate tracks seem to be where he shines brightest.He has a phenomenal ability to extract everything from a race car on 180-190 mph unrestricted racetracks.Crew chief Chad Knaus is the Bill Belichick of NASCAR. He thinks progressively, innovates, elevates his crew members to a level they might not have thought possible. But most importantly, imagine the advantage the Patriots would have if Belichick had nearly three weeks to prepare for one team, one game.So give that same advantage to the 48 in Miami.Actions speak louder than wordsJimmie Johnson has never been a trash-talking in-your-face personality or athlete.He gives thought-provoking sound bites, answers questions with intellect and intrigue. He doesnt say what hes going to do; he explains how he will go about doing it.Johnson is not only among the greatest drivers we have ever seen, but he is also among the most sincere we have ever heard.Theres no B.S. in his discussions. Its all authentic. Forrest Lamp Jersey. . Johnson empties the tank in expressing himself, the same way he empties the tank on the track.I recognized during my driving career that distraction is among the greatest enemies.So during my 10 years with ESPN, Ive coined, and often used, the expression distraction is poison.Ive never known an athlete who prepares harder, demonstrates more commitment or defies the risks of that expression more than Jimmie Johnson.Johnson and Knaus know better than most you are most vulnerable: when you are at the top.Among the greatest misconceptions in sports is that once you become the champ, the hard work is over.Well, its over if youre satisfied with just one!When you become king of the mountain, youve woken a sleeping giant -- or giants.The 48 Team wont take to Miami what helped them win Charlotte (both 1.5-mile tracks) a couple of weeks ago.They will enhance that strategy with what they have explored and learned since. They will apply and likely capitalize on those lessons.Im not suggesting we hand the trophy to Johnson today; its obviously far from a lock.We dont know who the three are who will do battle with the six-time champ in Florida.We dont what effect the next two races will have on the four teams destined to square off later this month.We do know there is one team that has hoisted the trophy a half-dozen times, a driver locked and loaded with the aim of becoming part of another record. We know his history, and history tells us he seldom fails.

Welterweight contender Errol Spence Jr. Jonathan Isaac Jersey . is on the doorstep of a world title shot.Spence, the 2015 ESPN.com prospect of the year, will meet Leonard Bundu in a world title elimination fight on Sunday in the first boxing event at the new Ford Amphitheater at the Coney Island Boardwalk in Brooklyn, New York -- and he does not just want a victory.Spence wants to impress the national television audience that will be watching the Premier Boxing Champions match, which airs on NBC at about 5 p.m. ET -- immediately after the mens basketball Olympic gold-medal game. Other bouts from the card will air on tape delay beginning at 9 p.m. ET on NBCSN.I just look for another spectacular fight, another spectacular one-sided performance, Spence said. This seems like a familiar refrain, as most of Spences fights so far have been one-sided. Turning pro after reaching the quarterfinals for Team USA in the 2012 Olympics, Spence was regarded by most as the fighter with the best professional potential from the team. So far, he is realizing it.In his last fight, on April 16 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn,New York, Spence destroyed former junior welterweight titlist Chris Algieri on NBC in prime time. He knocked Algieri down three times and stopped him in the fifth round of an overwhelming performance, even more impressive than Manny Pacquiaos decision win against Algieri in a 2014 world title bout.Ive promoted a lot of fighters throughout the years, and there wasnt a better fighter from the last Olympic class or this one that is better than Errol Spence Jr., promoter Lou DiBella said. In terms of ability, talent and instincts, hes world-class. He fights with much more intelligence than his ring age. Hes a master of controlling the ring. When I watch this kid fight Im always blown away.On Sunday, Spence Jr. is fighting a real professional and he has a chance to prove something on national television. This is a great forum for him to follow the Olympic gold-medal basketball game. The kind of audience that is going to watch the gold-medal game [is] the kind of people that we need to bring into boxing.Spence (20-0, 17 KOs), a 26-year-old southpaw from DeSoto, Texas, would like to match his April showing against the 41-year-old Bundu (33-1-2, 12 KOs), a 2000 Olympian from Italy and the reigning European champion.Of course I would want the knockout, but with me, I just look for, you know, a spectacular performance, said Spence, who was born in the New York area and will have plenty of family and friends cheering him on. Its like walk them down or go for the knockout. You know, hopefully I get the knockout. If it comes, Im definitely going to take it. But if I have to box, then Ill box, too, but hopefully I have another performance like I did with Chris Algieri.Im a rising star, and I want to look spectacular against him and get a knockout, but main goal is to win. Thats what Im looking for.The winner of the bout will earn a mandatory title shot at the 147-pound belt held by Englands Kell Brook, though when the winner fights for the title, Brook is unlikely to still hold it as he is moving up to middleweight for a shot at unified titleholder Gennady Golovkin on Sept. 10; win or lose, he will likely never see 147 pounds again.Whether Spence fights Brook for the title or somebody else for the vacant belt is not his concern. He just wants the win over Bundu. Then comes the title opportunity.Bundu is a very good fighter. Hes experienced and technically sound, but he can be awkward, said Spence, who hopes to become the second member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic boxing team to win a world title after Raushee Warren won a bantamweight belt on June 18. We went [down] the rankings trying to find an opponent. A lot of guys didnt want to fight me, even in a title eliminator. So I want to thank Bundu for taking the fight.Im not worried about whats going to happen next. I know whats next if I take care of my business. If I win Im guaranteed a chance at the world title. I want the title fight sooner rather than later.Spence is a huge favorite against Bundu, who has won two fights in a row against low-level opponents since suffering his first defeat, a shutout decision in which he got knocked down by Keith Thurman in an interim world title bout in December 2014 in Las Vegas.Bundu is aware that he is a big underdog against Spence, but he said he is not at all intimidated.Spence Jr. is a good boxer. Hes probably my toughest fight to date, Bundu said. These kinds of fights make me more motivated. I have nothing to lose. Im going to give it all I have, and Im very confident in myself. I believe I can be victorious.Spence Jr. and Thurman have some similarities but also are completely different fighters. I have studied Spence and I believe I will have an even better chance against [him]. I thought my performance was OK against Thurman. There was definitely room to improve and I think Im an even better fighter now than I was then. I feel like I was 10 years ago. Im like wine. Im truly getting better with age.Said DiBella: Theres no question Errol is the favorite while Bundu is the underdog, but hes been the underdog before. He knows he has to win and that this could be his last chance on a big stage.For Spence, it is likely just the start of what could be many years on the big stage.I dont have an eye on the future, he said. I think winning this fight, my future is already set in stone, so Im locked into this fight. Once I get an opponent, Im locked into him. Im locked into Bundu. This is the title eliminator.So Im not worried about the future because I know what comes after this is the world title fight. I [will] win but I dont know how Im going to win, but Im going to win and Im going to look spectacular doing it.

FCS Playoffs QuarterfinalThe Matchup -- No. 5 seed Sam Houston State (12-0) at No. 4 seed James Madison (11-1) at Bridgeforth Stadium (24,877) in Harrisonburg, VirginiaKickoff -- 7 p.m. ET FridayCoverage -- ESPN2Series -- First meetingCoaches -- Sam Houston State: K.C. Keeler (34-9, three seasons; 208-82-1 overall); James Madison: Mike Houston (11-1, first season; 54-20 overall)Players to Watch -- Sam Houston State: QB Jeremiah Briscoe (302 of 459, 4,459 yards, 57 TDs, 8 INTs), WR/PR Yedidiah Louis (73 receptions, 1,133 yards, 14 TDs), C Bridge Blount, DE P.J. Hall (48 TT, 21 TFL, 11 sacks, 7 PBU), S Darion Flowers (44 TT, 3 INTs, 7 PBU); James Madison: QB Bryan Schor (186 of 250, 2,397 yards, 23 TDs, 4 INTs; 96 carries, 522 yards, 9 TDs), RB Khalid Abdullah (227 carries, 1,387 yards, 17 TDs), WR/KR Brandon Ravenel (42 receptions, 669 yards, 5 TDs), LB Gage Steele (77 TT, 2 TFL, 3 QB hurries), S Raven Greene (57 TT, 5 INTs, 7 PBU)The Skinny -- This anticipated matchup features two offenses that score in bunches and dont turn the ball over often. Southland Conference champion Sam Houston State only has 13 turnovers and CAA Football champion James Madison averages less than one per game with 11. The visiting Bearkats, the only unbeaten team in the FCS, rank No. 1 nationally in total offense (570.4 ypg) and scoring offense (53.1 ppg), while the Dukes are third in total offense (525.8) and second in scoring offense (48.3). While Sam Houston has never faced James Madison, Keeler did when he coached for 11 seasons at Delaware, most recently in a 13-10 win over the Dukes in 2010. Briscoe has thrown for 57 touchdowns, the FCS single-season record and one shy of former Hawaii QB Colt Brennans Division I mark, set in 2006. Nathaan Stewart (951) and Davion Davis (927) hope to join Louis as Briscoes 1,000-yard receivers by games end. Grant Hill Jersey. . The Bearkats high-powered offense also features RBs Remus Bulmer (816 yards, 7 TDs) and Corey Avery (737 yards, 10 TDs). The defense hasnt been tested in the second half of most wins, but it came up with the necessary stop to finish off a 41-36 second-round win over Chattanooga. Hall commands double-teams and LB Justin Johnson is the teams leading tackler (89). James Madison looks to even its playoff record (10-11) in 13 all-time appearances. Schor is the CAA offensive player of the year and he threw five touchdowns in last Saturdays 55-22 win over New Hampshire. The Dukes are excellent at converting third downs, ranking second in the FCS with 53.7 percent success. Abdullah has rushed for more than 100 yards in eight games. The athletic defense is more bend without breaking, allowing 354.5 yards per game. Defensive end Andrew Ankrah hasnt quite supplied the pass rush of a year ago and DT Simeyon Robinson leads the team with four sacks. Rashard Davis, the CAA special teams player of the team, has returned three punts for touchdowns, while Ravenel went the distance on a kickoff return last Saturday.Up Next -- The winner will play either No. 8 seed South Dakota State (9-3) or No. 1 seed North Dakota State (11-1) in the FCS semifinals either Dec. 16 or 17.Prediction -- Which offense will have the ball last? Well, weather could temper an offensive explosion. The Bearkats, top-ranked in the STATS FCS Top 25, surely wont like the frigid temperatures at night. James Madison, 35-28.

Liam Dawson has admitted he is currently a better white than red-ball cricketer, but nevertheless hopes he can help England retain control in the field if he is selected for the Test team in India. Cody Allen Jersey .Dawson confesses he was very surprised to be called-up to replace the injured Zafar Ansari in Englands Test squad in India. But, while he claimed a modest-looking 22 Championship wickets during the 2016 season, Dawson feels he fulfilled a valuable role for his Hampshire side and is confident he can replicate it with England.Specifically, despite bowling on surfaces that generally offered him little, he conceded only 2.85 runs per over and contributed over 600 runs with the bat at an average of 33.89. Combined with his experience of bowling under pressure in limited-overs cricket, Dawson feels he offers some control with the ball. Certainly Dawson is a much more accomplished bowler than the one that was carted for five sixes in succession (and off the first five balls of an over; the final one cost only a single) by Ben Stokes in a County Championship game in 2011.Id admit my white-ball cricket is a lot stronger than my red-ball cricket, Dawson said. But Ive played a lot of red-ball cricket and I feel Im still improving in that area. If I get the opportunity, hopefully Ill offer some control with the ball. Thats what I do with Hampshire. Thats all I can do if selected for England.I did all right in the Championship. I only played 12 games, due to the one-day series. People see my season as only getting 22 wickets and say it is very poor, but I did bowl well and I did give Hampshire control. Thats something hopefully I can do if I play in the Test match. Thats my job and thats been my job for the last three years at the Ageas Bowl: to score runs and bring control with the ball. Thats all I can do if I play.Dawson has been playing in the Bangladesh Premier League. He went to Bangladesh as part of the England limited-overs squad almost as soon as the domestic season finished and then stayed on to play for Rangpur Riders. He is, therefore, match fit and has been playing regularly, but only in white ball cricket. For that reason, England may be reluctant to draft him straight into the Test team in Mumbai - the fourth Test starts on December 8 - increasing the suspicion that England might play two spinners (Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid) and four seamers (with Stuart Broad, if fit, adding to the three who played in Mohali), though any firm decision will only be made once they have taken a look at the pitch. Dawson has also never played in India, though he has been on various training camps to the country and was in the World T20 squad earlier this year.My job is to offer control, but if the wicket is spinning keep landing it in the right area and hopefully the wicket does the rest, Dawson said. Theres no doubt the Indian batsmen are exceptional players. Its an amazing challenge for me and if I am to play itll be a huge honour.Dawson has a good chance of keeping his place in Englands limited-overs squad which is to be named on Monday night. Having made his debut in the T20I and ODI teams in July and September respectively, he can expect to be named in the squad for the games (three ODIs and three T20Is) in India in the new year.With Eoin Morgan returning as captain and Alex Hales as opening batsman, there are difficult decisions to make over a couple of other positions. Jonny Bairstow looks especially vulnerable, though James Vince, Sam Billings and Ben Duckett may be competing for one or two places. Joe Root, who was rested for the series in Bangladesh, is keen to play despite expecting his first child at the start of January. One or two of the all-rounders who feature in all formats of the game, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes and Ben Stokes, might also be rested.Meanwhile, it is anticipated that Haseeb Hameed will return to India in the coming days to watch the final two Tests as he recovers from the operation on his hand.

MVP: (KEVIN DURANT-Thunder) - Has been sensational this season and more importantly, the most consistent player in the league.

The Longhorns (14-4, 3-2) got their biggest win of the season with their third in the row in the Big 12. ST. LOUIS -- It was a night of firsts for Robert Gsellman, who made his major league debut for the New York Mets on Tuesday night.Wilmer Flores and Justin Ruggiano homered as the Mets beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-4.The offense helped Gsellman (1-0) get the decision. Gsellman, pressed into action after starter Jonathon Niese left with an injury in the first inning, pitched 3 2/3 innings without allowing an earned run.It was my first time ever coming out of the bullpen so it felt kind of awkward, but you still have to take the mound the same way when youre starting, Gsellman said. I just thought I was starting the game all over and just tried to make some pitches.Niese had been dealing with knee discomfort this season. Gsellman was ready.Thats a tough spot even for a veteran to come out in the first inning, guys on, I tell you very, very, very impressive, Mets manager Terry Collins said. They always talked about the stuffs there. I was impressed that he came in and threw strikes for the most part and kept us in the game.Jose Reyes reached four base times and scored three runs. Asdrubal Cabrera had three hits, drove in a run and scored once.Ive been working on my swing on both sides of the plate to try to get it where I need to be, Reyes said. Right now I feel like its there.Collins said Reyes changes the energy of the team.Youre talking about one of the premier players in the game, Collins said. We know Joses got a lot to prove right now and hes doing it.Jeurys Familia earned his 42nd save, one shy of the Mets season record set by Familia last year and Armando Benitez in 2001.Cardinals lefty Jaime Garcia (10-9) gave up a season-high six runs at home, in just four innings. New York broke a 22 1/3-inning streak in which Garcia hadnt given up an earned run at home to the Mets.He just didnt have that movement, didnt get to work ahead in counts, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. Just kind of one of those tough ones.Brandon Moss reached three times and drove in a run while Randaal Grichuks solo homer in the sixth extended the Cardinals home run streak to 12 games. Yan Gomes Jersey. .Yadier Molina had three hits and an RBI for St. Louis.WEB GEMSCabrera made a diving stop on a grounder up the middle by Jhonny Peralta to end the third. Cabreras stop and subsequent force out saved at least one run.Yoenis Cespedes of the Mets robbed Stephen Piscotty of a solo homer in the sixth with a leaping catch over the left field wall.EARLY EXITNiese left the game after facing four batters with left knee pain.Niese retired just one of the four hitters he faced, walking two and giving up an RBI single to Moss before being lifted for Gsellman. All three runners he allowed eventually scored.Niese and Collins acknowledged that a trip to the disabled list is a possibility.Ive got to get it fixed, Niese said. I cant keep going out there like that. Theres a lot of pain, Im altering my mechanics, Im not able to stay behind each pitch, Im not able to locate and Im not helping myself out or the team.TRAINERS ROOMMets: LHP Steven Matz (left shoulder tightness) was placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to Aug. 15 and INF Neil Walker was placed on the paternity leave list. Gsellman and IF T.J. Rivera were recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas.Cardinals: INF Aledmys Diaz (right thumb fracture) took ground balls for the first time since being placed on the DL on Aug. 1 and INF Matt Adams (right shoulder inflammation) expects to go on a rehab assignment this week.UP NEXTMets: RHP Jacob deGrom (7-6, 2.73 ERA) is looking to bounce back after allowing a career-high eight runs and 13 hits in a 10-7 loss to San Francisco on Aug. 18.

LOS ANGELES -- Carmelo Anthony spent the U. Bob Gibson Jersey .S. Olympic basketball teams precious day off running a two-hour town hall meeting at a South Los Angeles youth center because he cant sleep anymore.With only a few spare hours Monday before jetting off to continue the Americans pre-Olympic tour, Anthony gathered basketball stars, community leaders and police officers to speak with teenagers and young adults about the importance of respect, communication and safety. Roughly 200 people came together for the meeting, and Anthony believes everyone left with something to contemplate.We really got a lot of messages out of today, Anthony said. Hopefully we can continue this dialogue, and we created something today that will continue on.Anthony shares many Americans profound disquiet with gun violence after this years series of increasingly dismaying shootings. With both the mens and womens Olympic teams in Los Angeles at the same time, the New York Knicks star recruited fellow Olympian Tamika Catchings and other like-minded athletes at the Challengers Boys and Girls Club to begin a badly needed nationwide conversation.There were some very, very powerful messages that were being talked about, Anthony said. Not just amongst us as athletes, but among the youth. The youth really spoke out today about how they feel about their community, how they feel about police officers, how they feel about relationships and how we can mend these relationships.Anthonys awakening interest in social activism was piqued after he spent a day watching news coverage of the latest shootings earlier this month. He awoke in the middle of the night and wrote a 280-word Instagram post declaring that the system is broken and calling on sports figures to lead change.The first thing that came to my mind was, I have to get my athletes, my fellow athletes, to step up and use their voice and use their platform in the best way they can, Anthony said.Two weeks ago, he took the stage at the ESPY Awards with Chris Paul, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. The four superstars decried violence and called for open conversation on racial issues.Anthony backed up the groups words before Team USA left Los Angeles following an exhibition game on Sunday night. He plans to keep finding ways to facilitate communication after this gathering led to frank discussions.Catchings recalled young adults telling police officers about the fear they feel when approached by officers with their hands on their guns. One young woman told officers: Just smile! A smile goes a long way.Definitely tension, and definitely some tears, said Catchings, the three-time Olympic gold medalist and former WNBA MVP. One young lady said that when she got off the bus and saw the (police) uniform, right off the bat, she was scared.But coming into this environment and hearing everything, she (said), `I doubted if I really wanted to be a part of it, but Im so glad I came, because now I feel like Im walking away with so much more than I thought I was going to get. When you have conversations like that and you get feedback like that, we know were going in the right direction.The community leaders invited by Anthony echoed his confidence in the importance of communication, particularly between police and young black men. Deputy Chief Bill Scott of the LAPD brought a large group of officers to join the meeting.Many of the kids in our group said, `Were thrilled to be here, said Calvin Lyons, the CEO of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Los Angeles. `We have a higher level of respect for the officers because of what theyre sharing. There was no fear.Anthony hopes to be a three-time Olympic gold medalist at this time next month, possibly capping a remarkable international career with another title in Rio before he heads back to the Knicks. He knows his work in American communities will go on much longer than even his NBA career, but he welcomes the challenge.We know that nothing is going to happen overnight, Anthony said. But what we wanted to do was create something that we could start right now, and continue on when we leave here today.

BATON ROUGE, La. -- Mike VI, the 11-year-old tiger mascot at Louisiana State University, has died after a four-month battle with cancer, the school announced Tuesday.Mike VI was euthanized in its night house on the Baton Rouge campus by Dr. David Baker of the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, the school said in a statement. The tiger?had been moved into hospice Monday after his handlers said the tigers health had declined to the point that he couldnt be outside anymore.The announcement triggered a wave of online tributes for the 11-year-old tiger, which LSU has said was one of only two live tiger college mascots in the U.S. and the only one living on a college campus.Thanks for the memories and all the joy you brought to the #LSU family,?Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said in a Twitter post.LSU said there wont a formal memorial service for Mike VI, but the school encouraged fans to share their memories, stories and photos of the mascot on social media.The tiger was diagnosed in May with a rare and iinoperable form of cancer. Albert Pujols Jersey. At the time, veterinarians said treating its spindle cell sarcoma with radiation therapy could extend the tigers life by one or two more years.However, last week, the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine announced that a CT scan and physical exam showed a tumor in the tigers skull had grown and his cancer had spread, giving him only one or two months left to live.The 420-pound tiger was 2 years old when he arrived at LSU, donated by an Indiana animal sanctuary. He lived in a 15,000-square-foot enclosure and yard next to Tiger Stadium.Last month, LSU announced that Mike VI wouldnt take the field during home football games this season and instead would remain in its campus habitat.Baker said last week that the university has asked him to begin searching animal rescue facilities for a Mike VII.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Carlton skipper Marc Murphy is keen for Bryce Gibbs to remain in the Blues leadership group despite his failed attempt to leave the AFL club. Paul Kariya Jersey .Gibbs sensationally asked to be traded to Adelaide for family reasons in Octobers trade period, only to see bitter negotiations between Carlton and the Crows amount to nothing.The star midfielder, who is contracted for another three years, returned to the club for the first time since the trade fiasco on Monday.Murphy maintained Gibbs return wasnt awkward for him or his teammates, even though he wanted to play elsewhere, and believes the star midfielder is ready to move on.Hes a tremendous footballer and person - he loves the footy club and the footy club loves him - so its great to have him still with us, Murphy told reporters on Monday.He was obviously going through a range of emotions (after the trade didnt go through) ... he was doing it pretty tough.(But) hes had a lot of conversations with people at the footy club and I think hes in a really good space now.He ran a really good time this morning in one of our trials ... hes in really good condition and looking forward to a big year.Gibbs was sensationally installed in the Blues leadership group for the 2007 season by then coach Denis Pagan without having played an AFL game.The No.1 draft pick was given time to mature away from the group after a year and has been a trusted lieutenant of Murphys since he took over the captaincy from Chris Judd ahead of the 2013 season.Well go through a process but Id love to still have him in (the leadership group), Murphy said.Hes been a great leader for the footy club and been a great support to me, so Id love to have him in the leadership group.Whether or not hes in that group or not ... well find out in the next few months, but hell still be a leader around the footy club (regardless).Murphys hope is that, with proper off-field support, Gibbs wont seek to leave the club again at next years trade period.Murphy suffered a serious ankle injury in round 10 and didnt play again this season, but reported he is in full training and is suffering no lingering effects of the issue.

LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. With his yellow jersey from the Tour de France left in a bag at home, Mark Cavendish will not be satisfied with his summer until he has an Olympic medal around his neck.The Team GB rider currently sits third in the omnium with a day to go at the Olympic Velodrome in Rio, where he is targeting the last big prize that has eluded him during a glittering career.Cavendish claimed his first yellow jersey with victory on the opening stage of this years Tour, before going on to win another three stages before quitting the race early to focus on Rio.And after missing out on medals at the 2008 and 2012 Games, the Manxman revealed he has not had time to dwell on his success this year with the biggest prize still ahead of him.[The yellow jersey] is in a bag with my other jerseys, Cavendish said. I came in [after the Tour], put my suitcases down and had three days with the family.My suitcases sat there in the lobby, but the night before Rio [...] it was stressing me out to see a bit of untidiness. I didnt have time to do anything, so I just put it in a bag to sort it out later. Ive got a room being done at the minute, so theyre just in a bag for the time being.Im not just doing this to mill around in Rio de Janeiro. Ive been to ttwo Olympics, Im going because I want to win. Teemu Selanne Jersey. Cavendish was sixth in the omnium at Marchs Track World Championships, but showed strong enough form on Sunday to suggest gold is not out of his reach.He was sixth in the the scratch race, second in the four-kilometres individual pursuit, but closed the day frustrated with seventh in the elimination race.The early elimination of Denmarks Lasse Norman Hansen, the defending Olympic champion, represented an opportunity, but Cavendish strayed off the track.Thomas Boudat of France leads at the halfway mark with 106 points, Elia Viviani of Italy has 104 and Cavendish is third on 96.Team GB have claimed four golds and two silvers from five events entered after a phenomenal Olympic track meeting so far, and Cavendish is keen to add his name to the list of British champions in Brazil, although he remained philosophical about his chances.If I win the Olympics its not going to be the defining moment of my career, he added. Ive been pro for 10 years, but its definitely something Id like to win.Press Association Sport contributed to this report.

CHICAGO -- The Latest on Game 3 of the World Series at Wrigley Field on Friday night (all times Central):10:41 p. Alexander Nylander Jersey .m.Cody Allen struck out Javier Baez with two runners in scoring position for the final out, and the Cleveland Indians held on to beat the Chicago Cubs 1-0 for a 2-1 lead in the World Series.It was the first Series game at Wrigley Field in Chicago since 1945.Cleveland pitched its fifth shutout of this postseason.---10:20 p.m.Indians closer Cody Allen has struck out Kris Bryant with a runner on, and Cleveland has a 1-0 lead over the Chicago Cubs heading into the ninth inning of Game 3.Bryan Shaw got five outs for the Indians, riding the latest stingy performance by their stellar bullpen.Allen is 5 for 5 in save chances this postseason. He has tossed nine scoreless innings with 16 strikeouts and three walks.---9:55Bryan Shaw has worked a scoreless seventh inning out of the bullpen to preserve Clevelands 1-0 lead over the Chicago Cubs in Game 3.---9:50 p.m.Actor and comedian Bill Murray led the crowd in a rousing version of Take Me Out To The Ball Game during the seventh-inning stretch.Murray, a huge Cubs fan, reminded the crowd of 41,703 that it was the last chance to buy beer, and then said they were there to win games rather than drink. He also said he was going to sing Take Me Out To The Ball Game as the cartoon character Daffy Duck.---9:45 p.m.Cleveland has broken through in the seventh inning of Game 3, taking a 1-0 lead on an RBI single by pinch-hitter Coco Crisp off reliever Carl Edwards Jr.Roberto Perez, the light-hitting catcher who homered twice in Game 1, got things started with a leadoff single. Pinch-runner Michael Martinez advanced on Tyler Naquins sacrifice and went to third on a wild pitch.After a walk to Rajai Davis, Crisp batted for reliever Andrew Miller and singled to right field. The Indians might have had a good chance for more, but Davis was thrown out at third by Jorge Soler.---9:20 p.m.Featuring that wicked slider, Indians reliever Andrew Miller has struck out the top three batters in Chicagos lineup during a perfect sixth inning. Game 3 is still scoreless.---9:05 p.m.Andrew Miller is on for the Indians after replacing starter Josh Tomlin with a runner on second and two outs in the fifth inning.The left-hander retired pinch-hitter Miguel Montero on a line drive to right field.Both starting pitchers are out of the game.---8:55 p.m.The Cubs escaped a bases-loaded jam in the fifth when reliever Justin Grimm got Francisco Lindor to ground into an inning-ending double play.Grimm entered after Kyle Hendricks plunked Jason Kipnis with a pitch. The right-hander went after Lindor with breaking balls and got ahead 0-2. The count ran full before Lindor grounded a curve to second base.Grimm gave a huge fist pump and shouted along with first baseman Anthony Rizzo at a roaring Wrigley Field after the Cubs turned two to keep Game 3 scoreless.Hendricks gave up six hits and struck out six in 4 1/3 innings. He gave Grimm a big hug back in the dugout.---8:30 p.m.Indians starter Josh Tomlin has allowed only one hit through four innings, and Game 3 is still scoreless.Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks threw a called third strike past Roberto Perez with runners at the corners to end the top of the fourth.Hendricks made a fine defensive play earlier in the inning to prevent Cleveland from scoring. Runners were at first and second when Chicago tried to turn a 3-6-1 double play. The relay to first bounced in the dirt as Hendricks was running over to cover the bag, but he picked it clean.That kept Francisco Lindor at third base. Lindor, who has singled twice, is 5 for 9 in the Series (.556).---8:25 p.m.The Cubs honored former Buffalo Bills coach and World War II veteran Marv Levy during Game 3 as part of their military appreciation program.The 91-year-old Levy was greeted with loud cheers when he was introduced during the fourth inning.Levy, a Chicago native, coached the Bills to four straight Super Bowls from 1991-94. He was on furlough from the Army Air Corps when he attended the previous World Series game at Wrigley Field in 1945.---8 p.m.Three innings in the books and Game 3 between the Indians and Cubs remains scoreless.Cleveland had an excellent opportunity to jump ahead in the first inning after Jason Kipnis reached on a one-out infield single and went to third on Francisco Lindors single to left-center.Chicago starter Kyle Hendricks, however, picked off Lindor at first base. Lindor initially was called safe, but the ruling was overturned after a replay challenge by the Cubs.Mike Napoli struck out to end the inning.Both starting pitchers in control on a windy night at Wrigley Field, hosting its first World Series game since 1945.---7:15 p.m.Game 3 between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians is underway.Carlos Santana swung and missed at a cutter from Kyle Hendricks on the first pitch of the night and struck out swinging on four pitches.The Cubs and Indians split the first two games in Cleveland. This is the first World Series game at Wrigley Field since Hall of Fame slugger Hank Greenberg helped the Detroit Tigers to a 9-3 victory in Game 7 on October 10, 1945.---7 p.m.Jerry Tomlin made it to the World Series to see his only son pitch.Two months after nearly losing his life to a spinal condition that has left him partially paralyzed, Tomlin sat behind home plate in a wheelchair as Josh Tomlin started for the Cleveland Indians against the Chicago Cubs.A moment hell never forget.Its hard to put into words, said the elder Tomlin, wearing an Indians cap and sweatshirt. I didnt know what I was going to say when I got here and I still dont. The way everything planned out and the way people helped me to get here, man, its definitely a dream come true. There was no way I was going to miss this.When Josh was growing up in Whitehouse, Texas, he and his dad -- like so many fathers and sons -- would pretend they were playing in the World Series. And for it to be happening, on the night the Cubs were hosting their first Series game since 1945, was almost beyond the 57-year-olds wildest imagination.How could you plan it out or write it out any better than what it is? he said. To be here for this historic thing theyre having here and to be the first World Series here and my first World Series and my son to be here, I dont know, man, its just hard to explain.---6 p.m.Indians manager Terry Francona is admittedly biased, but he would like to see the designated hitter used in both World Series ballparks.After playing all season with a DH -- except for interleague road games -- the Indians wont have one during their three games at Wrigley Field.Francona said the rules are what they are but he believes American League teams are penalized by the inability to use their best lineups.I dont think it makes it a bad game, he said before Game 3. I just dont necessarily agree with this. I just think you set your team up the way you set it up and then you get to the most important games and youre doing something different.On top of not having their best hitters in the lineup, Clevelands pitchers will have to hit -- something theyve barely done all season.Its a disadvantage, Francona said. It doesnt mean you cant win.For the record, Cleveland starter Josh Tomlin takes a lofty .500 career batting average into Game 3. And its legit -- 6 for 12, including 2 for 5 this year with a double.---3 p.m.Jorge Soler is the starting right fielder for the Chicago Cubs for Game 3, and Carlos Santana is in left for the Cleveland Indians .The Cubs tried to get Kyle Schwarber medically cleared to play left, but doctors said no on Thursday. That meant Ben Zobrist stayed in left instead of moving to right, and manager Joe Maddon decided on Soler for right.Chicago also had rookie Willson Contreras at catcher, batting fifth. Soler was in the sixth slot, followed by second baseman Javier Baez, shortstop Addison Russell and pitcher Kyle Hendricks.Santana, Clevelands usual designated hitter, was playing his second career game in left. He also played four innings at the position in 2012.Santana also was in the leadoff spot. Rookie Tyler Naquin got the start in center, batting eighth, and Lonnie Chisenhall was in right, batting sixth.---2:15 p.m.Those notorious, game-changing winds are beginning to whip at Wrigley Field.After a fairly calm morning in Chicago, the wind is picking up and heavy gusts of 40 mph are expected during Game 3, which could send some routine fly balls to left field into the bleachers -- or on to Waveland Avenue -- for home runs.Hey, this is the Windy City.The flags bearing the retired jersey numbers of Cubs greats Ernie Banks, Ron Santos and Ferguson Jenkins, were flapping in a stiff breeze atop the left-field foul pole as members of the grounds crew prepared the infield as a dozen pigeons circled the pitching mound.The wind has always been a factor at Wrigley, turning pitching duels into high-scoring affairs or knocking down balls that might otherwise be over the wall.It could be a problem for the Indians, who are expected to start designated hitter Carlos Santana in left. Hes only played four innings there in his career.---1:20 p.m.After waiting 71 years to witness a World Series game, Chicago Cubs fans can hardly contain themselves.More than six hours before the first pitch of Game 3, thousands of fans -- many of them wearing jerseys with names like Banks, Sandberg and Rizzo on their backs -- were already in the streets ringing Wrigley Field on Friday as the Cubs prepared to play the Cleveland Indians.Its the first Series game at the fabled ballpark since 1945, and many Chicagoans skipped work to begin a weekend of baseball theyll never forget.There was a long line outside Murphys Bleachers, the renowned tavern on the corner of Sheffield and Waveland Avenues. Vendors worked the crowd, one of them peddling a T-shirt that said, I Aint Afraid of No Goat.Generations of Cubs fans believed their team was denied a trip to the Series partly because of The Curse of the Billy Goat, which began when a Chicago tavern owner supposedly put a hex on the team after it refused to let his pet goat, Murphy, into Wrigley Field during the `45 Series.The Cubs havent won the World Series since 1908. Its only been a 68-year drought for the Indians, who last won it all in 1948. Gilbert Perreault Jersey . The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. In that time, hes recorded 17 goals and 17 assists with 36 penalty minutes. Benoit Pouliot Jersey . That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. http://www.sabresauthority.com/authentic-evander-kane-sabres-jersey/ . -- For the first time in two months, an opponent was standing up to Alabama. Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Ben Bishop returned to the ice last week for the first time after rehabbing a high ankle and shin sprain that he suffered in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Pittsburgh Penguins.Bishop, 29, told ESPN.com hes feeling better and is preparing to represent Team USA at the World Cup of Hockey this September in Toronto.Bishop, who was a Vezina Trophy finalist last season, helped lead the Lightning back to the conference finals, but he suffered a left-leg injury and missed the remainder of that series, which Pittsburgh won in seven games before going on to beat the San Jose Sharks in the Stanley Cup finals.Bishops backup, Andrei Vasilevskiy, was solid the rest of the way and proved he could play at that level. Bishop has one year and $5.95 million remaining on his contract. Hes set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, 2017. Meanwhile, Vasilevskiy, 21, agreed this offseason to a three-year contract extension that will pay him an average of $3.5 million annually.At this point, Bishop is focused on his health, the World Cup and being ready for the 2016-17 NHL season. The Denver native did not discuss rumors about his status with the Lightning -- there has been talk he would be traded to free up cap space, especially given Vasilevskiys play in the playoffs -- but he did talk about captain Steven Stamkos re-signing with Tampa for eight years.ESPN.com: First, earlier in the week you revealed your Team USA mask for the World Cup of Hockey. Tell me about the mask.Ben Bishop: It turned out really well. DaveArt [David Gunnarsson] actually does it over in Sweden and weve had this glow-in-the-dark theme going [with Lightning mask] the last few years, so we might as well stick with it and it turned out really good.ESPN.com: How long did it take?Bishop: He can do it pretty quick, but there was no rush with this one just because we had time. He can do it in a couple of weeks if you really need him to.ESPN.com: How did you come up with the design idea?Ben Bishop: We usually just email back and forth but hes the artist, so I let his mind do most of the work.ESPN.com: How is your leg injury and where are you with your offseason workouts?Ben Bishop: Its going good. The leg is feeling better and its getting stronger every day. Im getting ready to start skating soon ... and get back on the ice and doing that side of things. We have about a month until we go, so Ill start off slow and pick it up in the next month and be ready for training camp for the World Cup.ESPN.com: Now that youre focused on your preparation for the World Cup, what does this opportunity mean to you?Ben Bishop: Its a great opportunity. Obviously, its not new but its a little bit newer with the World Cup coming back and I think everybody is excited that its going to be on ESPN. Its a whole different feel to it; its not another NHL season, or tthe Olympics, its a brand new thing coming out again and I think everybody is excited. Thomas Vanek Jersey. Everybodys going to be fresh, its going to be good hockey and its in a great market in Toronto. There are so many good things coming out of it and Im excited to be a part of it.ESPN.com: At least on paper, Team USA already has an identity, so going into a tournament like the World Cup, what do you think of the teams chances?Ben Bishop: We obviously have a great roster. When you look around, they did a pretty cool thing with Team Europe and Team North America, and that will add much more excitement to the tournament. Every team is going to be stacked and good and I dont think theres going to be any bad games out there, so its going to be fun. Its going to be great for the fans. Its going to be exciting hockey. Its at the beginning of the year, so everybodys fresh and ready to go. Its going to be high-tempo and Im just looking forward to being a part of it.ESPN.com: Stamkos re-signed with Tampa for eight years, so what does that mean for his teammates and the organization?Ben Bishop: Its exciting. Hes worked his butt off ever since he got to Tampa. Hes been the face of that franchise since he got there and hes rode through some of the tough times, and hes been through some of the high times. Hes our captain and Im really glad that they were able to get something worked out. Hes able to come back and hopefully be able to maybe retire a Lightning. Hes done a lot for that organization and its nice to see him stick with it.ESPN.com: In todays era, there arent many players who play with one organization for their entire career. So what do you think of Stamkos having that opportunity in Tampa?Ben Bishop: I think its great. Its kind of a give-and-take thing. You look at Stammer, maybe he took a little less money to stay there and he likes the organization, he likes everything about Tampa. Both sides have to be willing to work towards something like that to happen, but I think its really cool. You look at Shane Doan in Phoenix and how many years hes been there, its just nice to see guys stick with it. You have to have both sides working for the same goal and obviously theyre both tremendous players. I mean, who doesnt want to have Steven Stamkos on your team? Im just glad hes on ours.ESPN.com: What has your offseason been like?Ben Bishop: Im getting better, training and working out. Ive been doing some physical therapy, just getting healthy again. Im at that age where theres lots of weddings, so it seems like theres a wedding every weekend that youve got to go to, but its fun. Its fun to relax a little bit and see some family. Like I said, Im going to start skating and turn it back up a notch and get ready for the World Cup.
