Jordan Retro Shoes, In 2018, LeBron James will be hooking up with retail store Kith on an upcoming Kith X Nike LeBron 15 collaboration. This particular colorway will be called "Rose Gold". KITH and Nike are celebrating LeBron James's birthday (December 30) by releasing their collaborative LeBron 15 "Long Live the King" collection, which continues the story told in KITH's recently released mini-documentary by highlighting LeBron both on and off the court. Ronnie Fieg worked with Nike to develop two new variations of the LeBron 15 – one designed for performance and one for lifestyle.
New Jordans 2016, Ronnie Fieg's Kith is known for out-of-this-world collaborations and projects. LeBron James is known for being one of the best basketball players on the planet. Looking closer at this Nike LeBron 15 they feature Rose Pink across the uppers while Rose Gold is applied to the zipper. There will be several colorways stemming from this collaboration but this one come draped in a Rose Pink upper with white detailing and a Rose Gold zipper, a White midsole and a Milky translucent outsole. Other details include the tongues being branded with "Kith X Nike LeBron 15" and "Long Live The King."
Jordans 2017, During tonight's Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors game, James stepped onto the court sporting the silhouettes officially dubbed LeBron Performance 15 by Fieg. Essentially taking on the standard LeBron 15 design, this "Rose Gold" model features a zipper enclosure down the middle. The Lifestyle XV revamps the silhouette's upper while maintaining the original midsole tooling, and opts for a more refined textured Flyknit upper as opposed to the more pronounced Battleknit. The most dynamic design element of Lifestyle XV is the strap system. Branded straps replace a lacing system and come in both full and half-length options. Each Lifestyle XV is accompanied by two full straps and one half strap. This sneaker can also be devoid of straps, thus creating three different ways to be worn.

MIAMI -- Gardnar Mulloy, a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame who won 129 U.S. national titles and played competitively into his 90s, has died at age 102.The longtime Miami resident died Monday night, said his wife, Jackie.Mulloy won five Grand Slam doubles titles, was ranked No. 1 in the United States in 1952 and started the University of Miami tennis program. He swept United States Tennis Association grand slams in three age groups: 45s, 70s and 80s.Mulloy had plenty of personality, too. Outspoken, opinionated and occasionally ill-mannered, he was tennis ugly American before John McEnroe was even born -- and endlessly entertaining.Gardnar was a real treasure to our sport, said Stan Smith, president of the International Tennis Hall of Fame. His personality was as charismatic off the court as he was fiery on it. He was always great fun to be around, and he will be missed.Mulloy, who served in the Navy during World War II, was 31 when the war ended, and his tennis career had barely begun. At age 43, he won the Wimbledon doubles title with Budge Patty and helped the U.S. Davis Cup team reach the final.He would have turned 103 on Nov. 22.I was older than most of the players of my era, and usually I was in better shape than them, he said in a 1997 interview. I won almost all of my five-set matches. I didnt drink or smoke, and I watched my diet.In his 80s, Mulloy was tennis director emeritus on posh Fisher Island. He gave hhalf a dozen lessons a week, charging $30 for 30 minutes, and his hitting partners then included Boris Becker and Jim Courier. Raekwon McMillan Jersey. In his prime, Mulloy took defeat badly, feuded with the USTA and Wimbledon, and became known as the Miami Mouthpiece.Gardnar Mulloy, wrote one London columnist, should throw his racquet over a cliff and forget to let go.Mulloy grew up near the Miami River and lived in the same neighborhood most of his life. He began playing tennis at age 8 on a court in his backyard and quickly took to the game.I went out for the team my freshman year in high school, and in about 20 minutes I was No. 1, he said.Also an accomplished boxer, diver and quarterback, Mulloy attended the University of Miami on a football scholarship but played little.I finally went to the president of the university and said: `Im too skinny, Im getting beat up and my father doesnt like it. Why dont you have a tennis team?He said, `Why dont you start one up? So I did. I got Bobby Riggs and Jack Kramer to come out for the team. The football players used to call us all sissies.Mulloy graduated with a law degree in 1938 and cracked the U.S. top-10 rankings before World War II took him off the tournament circuit. He spent four years in the U.S. Navy and in 2015 received the French Legion of Honour for his service.

Springboks coach Allister Coetzee says he will walk away from the job if he is held responsible for their dismal 2016 campaign as the South Africa Rugby Union launched a review into their form. Minkah Fitzpatrick Jersey .Moments after South Africa fell to their eighth defeat of the year against Wales, a SARU press release dropped with president Mark Alexander saying the governing body will coolly and coldly analyse where the Springboks have gone wrong since 2014.In assessing the Boks poor form, SARU will seek the opinion of Coetzee, current Springboks and other stakeholders and will also review its selection policy on overseas-based players while undergoing an overhaul of its governance structure.Coetzees role and that of his backroom staff are under scrutiny after they finished their end-of-year tour with three defeats and a draw and Alexander has assured supporters and stakeholders that if tough decisions have to be made we will not shy away from making them.But Coetzee, who took on the role ahead of their June series with Ireland, is not afraid of getting the sack. Speaking after their defeat to Wales, he said: I dont fear anything, to be honest.Collectively, weve got to understand that its not just one person that can take responsibility for that. If Im solely held responsible for that, then I will walk away.He continued: We need to get the standards up.The Springbok stands for excellence.

MIAMI -- Giancarlo Stanton hails from the Show, dont tell school of baseball leadership. Air Max 97 Ultra 17 . When a hitter stands 6-foot-6 and 245 pounds, dominates the Home Run Derby, dents scoreboards with regularity and induces panic attacks while hes standing in the on-deck circle, it borders on overkill to speak in a commanding tone of voice.Stanton has a $325 million contract and three All-Star Games on his résumé, so the laid-back Southern California style suits him well. His approach to baseball and life in general contrasts mightily with that of late teammate Jose Fernandez, whose fiery, alternately comical and confrontational style made him worth the price of admission. They were indisputably the two best players on the?Miami Marlins roster, but?Stanton led primarily by example, while Fernandez relied on velocity, torque and a smile that made him a force of nature.Now Fernandez is gone -- the victim of a tragic boating accident at age 24 -- and Stanton stands alone as Miamis resident superstar. If a single gesture shows that he has the shoulders to carry the burden, it came shortly before the Marlins took the field against the New York Mets on Monday night.The Marlins pregame ceremony for Fernandez was a predictably solemn occasion, with an understated rendition of Take Me Out to the Ballgame on trumpet, a color guard and contorted faces trying to hold back tears. The emotions built even more when the Marlins knelt in the dirt and inscribed personal messages to their late, beloved teammate.Eventually, a game had to be played, and as the Marlins prepared to take the field, a single face and voice stood out from the crowd. There was Stanton, with red-rimmed eyes and a gray No. 16 adorning his black Marlins cap, exhorting his teammates to put their grief aside for a few hours and play the game the way Jose would have wanted. When he finished talking, he thrust a finger in the air, and every other hand in the scrum shot skyward to meet it. Stanton didnt plan his sermon from on high. It just happened.Honestly, I went kind of numb in that moment, Stanton said. A lot of us were talking about, Why are we here right now? Whats the main purpose of this? How do we get through this together? I was just trying to ease all that. I told them, Were here for Jose and his fans and everyone to come together. Were the last hope and the last heart for him.There were multiple displays of grace, sportsmanship and people rising to meet the occasion during the Marlins 7-3 victory over the Mets. Right after the national anthem, the Mets crossed the field and met the Marlins in an inspiring display of baseball brotherhood. Just how classy a gesture it was dawned on Stanton when pitcher Jacob deGrom, his right arm encased in a cast and a sling, attempted to reach out in an effort to console him.Miami second baseman Dee Gordon, a spindly bundle of emotion and tears, set the tone for the evening when he launched his first home run in 74 games this season on his first swing against Bartolo Colon. For the sake of improbability, timing, karma and bolt-from-the-heavens-caliber shock value, it might have been the closest thing to a miracle that baseball has seen since Mike Piazzas post-9/11 home run against the Atlanta Braves.The Marlins were conflicted throughout the evening. They knew that playing a game might be the best thing to distract them from their grief, but they were too sick in the pits of their stomach for that to matter.There were some strange what-ifs and extenuating circumstances surrounding Fernandezs pitching schedule that added to everyones sense of anguish. Fernandez was originally scheduled to pitch Sunday. But the Marlins bumped his start back to Monday because he had gone eight innings and 111 pitches against Washington his last time out, his innings total had surpassed 180, and the team wanted to get lefty Adam Conley back in the mix after six weeks on the disabled list. Might Fernandez have refrained from taking that boat ride late Saturday night if the Marlins had stuck to the original plan? As maudlin as that sounds, its a hard question to avoid.If Jose had pitched yesterday, maybe fate would be different, club president David Samson said before the game. Ive been thinking about that a lot. Theres been a lot of talking, a lot of crying, a lot of praying and a lot of trying to make sense of something we cant make sense of.Manager Don Mattingly, the ultimate straight shooter, admitted that he too had tossed different scenarios around in his head since the news of Fernandezs death.Obviously, it crosses your mind, he said.Conley, taking the mound in Fernandezs place Monday after Sundays game against Atlanta was canceled, treated the appearance with the requisite deference. He refrained from stepping on the mound during the pregame tribute because he felt it was Fernandezs domain and he was merely renting the space for the evening. After throwing three shutout innings and giving way to the bullpen, Conley was exhausted to the core.Nothing I felt today had anything to do with pitching, Conley said. I dont even know what I did out there. Ive never been more tired in my life after throwing 45 pitches. These words are going to come out of my mouth, and they might sound heroic from me, but I know that all those guys in that clubhouse havent eaten much and havent slept much in two days.The only thing the Miami players planned Monday -- other than everyone wearing No. 16 -- was choosing batting practice tunes and walk-up music in line with Fernandezs tastes. The unscripted nature of the evening left room for moments of poignancy and even comedy.One such interlude came in the third inning, when lumbering first baseman Justin Bour legged out his first career triple (in almost 750 big-league at-bats) and punctuated the occasion with a belly flop and a muscle pose for the dugout. Hitting coach Barry Bonds was particularly amused by the spectacle.Anytime J.B. head slides, its kind of funny, Mattingly said.After the game, the Marlins formed a circle and tossed their caps on the mound in honor of Fernandez. Mattingly bent down and kissed the dirt, simply because it brought him a little closer to Fernandez in spirit.In the course of surviving the evening, the Marlins tapped a well of emotional reserves they probably didnt know they had.Strength came tonight, Stanton said. We all dug as deep as we could, and we gave all we had. But we still have a plane ride without Jose, bus rides without him and rookie hazing without him. It will take some time.The victory notwithstanding, tears continued to flow in the clubhouse after the game. The Marlins have two more games against the Mets, followed by a day off that they will most likely spend at Fernandezs funeral. Then the season ends with a series in Washington. For the next few days, the mere act of putting one foot in front of the other will pass for a triumph of competitive will.It doesnt feel real, outfielder Christian Yelich?said. Joses locker is still over there the way he left it. I kind of just expect him to walk through those doors. Its going to take a while for it to set in that its not going to happen. I dont know if well ever completely get over this. Nike Air Max Uptempo 97 For Sale .

There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me. INDIANAPOLIS -- The Tennessee Titans thought they finally had the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.Their ground game was chugging along, Marcus Mariota was playing the best football of his short career, the defense had just shut down Aaron Rodgers & Co. and they were about to face a team that had been struggling.Somehow, they still couldnt exorcise The Streak, and now the Titans are heading home looking for answers again.It hurts deeply inside, especially for me personally, having to lose to (Andrew) Luck again, defensive tackle Jurrell Casey said after the 24-17 loss. Like I always talk about, going back to my college days (at Southern California), it is time for me to get over the hump and beat this dude.Luck improved to 9-0 all-time against the Titans (5-6), who have lost 11 straight in the series.But as discouraging as the numbers look, Tennessee still has plenty at stake. The Titans are a half game behind Indy (5-5) in the AFC South chase and two games behind division-leading Houston (6-3). So playoff visions still exist -- if the Titans can rebound from another demoralizing loss to Indy.You cant come into their place and spot them 21 points, coach Mike Mularkey said. We did and we had a chance to come back in the second half and the way our guys came back, I give them a lot of credit. But we cant do that against teams in this stadium.Or any stadium if theyre going to be playing after New Years Day.Tennessee was undone in this one by a mish-mash of penalties, blown coverages and an ineffective offense that got within 21-17 in the fourth quarter despite never really being in sync.Now, its back to the drawing board before heading to Chicago next week.Stay positive, dont get too frustrated, dont do anything dumb and dont listen to the outside, cornerback Perrish Cox said after letting a seemingly sure interception slip through his fingers and into the hands of receiver T.Y. Hilton for a touchdown. We know what we have, and we know we can play with every team in this league. Nike Air Max 97 Mens Sale. They just have to prove it.Some other things we learned Sunday:NOT SO AUTOMATICColts kicker Adam Vinatieri is human. The oldest player in the league at age 43 missed his first field goal attempt in 14 months when a 42-yarder sailed wide right. It ended Vinatieris NFL record streak of 44 in a row but he atoned by making a 49-yarder in the fourth quarter for the final points of the game. The ball was flying good for a long time, Vinatieri said. I had a little hiccup right there, and I guess were at one in a row now.GROUNDING MURRAYDeMarco Murray had been on quite a run lately until Sunday when the Colts limited him to 21 carries for 70 yards. The Titans running back did reach the 1,000-yard mark for the third time. He also caught a 3-yard TD pass from Mariota. But his longest run was eight yards and his franchise-record tying streak of five consecutive games with a rushing score ended and he was stopped for no gain on fourth-and-1 from the Colts 19-yard line with 2:42 left.TRICKY COLTSIndy dug deep into its playbook against Tennessee. Three times on the first two series, they lined up in the wildcat formation with Andrew Luck lining up at receiver. The third time, Frank Gore took the snap, ran left, flipped the ball to Luck and then got it right back for a 49-yard pass play because he was uncovered. The Titans werent as fortunate Their fake punt on fourth-and-2 from their own 43 went for a 2-yard loss.SURGING MARIOTAMariota continues to impress, throwing two more touchdown passes on a day he did not turn the ball over. Mariota wound up 25 of 38 for 290 yards, ran five times for 29 yards and broke Warren Moons franchise record with his seventh consecutive multi-touchdown game. Continue to play that well, and the Titans will have their chances.---For more NFL coverage: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Jerseys Free ShippingWholesale Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys 2018Discount NFL JerseysJerseys From ChinaNFL Jerseys WholesaleNFL Jerseys From China ' ' '

Max Verstappen set the fastest time in the final practice session for the Mexican Grand Prix as traffic and tyre conditioning made a big impact on the order. Cody Kessler Jersey .Verstappen got a relatively clean lap on the super-soft tyres to set a 1:19.137, just 0.094s clear of Hamilton, whose first attempt was ruined by yellow flags for Romain Grosjeans spinning Haas. Daniel Ricciardo was third fastest and 0.233s off his teammate, but his best lap was ruined by a slow moving Kevin Magnussen in the final sector.Nico Rosberg was fourth fastest and 0.481s off Verstappens pace, but, again, his best lap was ruined on the entry to the stadium section as Romain Grosjean focused on the settings on his steering wheel rather than the cars around him. Valtteri Bottas set his time earlier in the session and a clear track meant his Williams was just 0.674s off Verstappens benchmark.Sebastian Vettel set the second fastest first sector of all, just 0.071s off Verstappen, but traffic on the entry to the stadium section ruined his quick lap as well. Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen also lost time in the middle and final sectors to finish seventh fastest overall and 0.857s off Verstappen. Felipe Massa was eighth fastest after setting his time earlier than the rest on a relatively clear track.A lot of the traffic issues were caused by drivers trying to bring their super-soft tyres up to temperature slowly. The cold conditions and low-grip tarmac mean graining can occur if drivers push too hard on their out laps, and for some teams the optimum strategy is to do two warm-up laps ahead of a quick lap. The result of the chaotic final 10 minutes of FP3 is that the competitive order remains a mystery ahead of qualifying, with Mercedes qualifying dominance potentially under threat. The mixed order could be good news for Hamilton, however, who needs Mercedes teammate Rosberg to slip up at one of the remaining rounds in order to keep his championship chances alive.Nico Hulkenberg failed to follow up on his impressive FP2 pace on the soft tyre by only improving by 0.25s on the super-soft. He finished in ninth ahead of Carlos Sainz in tenth and the second Force India of Sergio Perez in 11th. Daniil Kvyat was 12th ahead of the McLaren of Fernando Alonso, Jolyon Palmers Renault and the second McLaren of Jenson Button.Marcus Ericsson managed to haul his Sauber up to 16th, over a second quicker than teammate Felipe Nasr in last, and ahead of the Haas of Esteban Gutierrez in 17th. Magnussen was 18th, 0.386s off teammate Palmer, and 0.256s ahead of Romain Grosjean, who struggled with the balance of his Haas throughout the session.In the battle of the Manors, Pascal Werhlein held a 0.163s advantage over teammate Esteban Ocon, with both drivers over 0.4s quicker than Nasr in last.

Argentina boasts Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Angel Di Maria. COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Just over a week after whipping NHL-leading Montreal 10-1, Columbus had its fans chanting We want 10! late in the second period Saturday night during another blowout.This one wasnt so satisfactory to coach John Tortorella, though.Sam Gagner scored twice, Nick Foligno got a goal and two assists and 13 Blue Jackets had at least a point, helping Columbus rout the St. Louis Blues 8-4.The Jackets demanding coach wasnt as enthused as the home crowd, instead calling out his teams defensive and physical mistakes.We shot the puck and it went in the net, Tortorella said. Its not going to happen that way that often. We need to understand how were playing, not what the score is. As far as the checking part of the game, as far as our sticks. A lot of the little things in the game. Were going to continue to work at that.Alexander Wennberg, Brandon Dubinsky, Markus Nutivaara, William Karlsson and Zach Werenski also scored for Columbus.The Blue Jackets rebounded from a tough loss Thursday night in Boston and have points in six of their last seven games (5-1-1), winning four straight at home. Cam Atkinson added a career-high four assists, and Brandon Saad, Scott Hartnell, Lukas Sedlak and Boone Jenner each had two.Foligno agreed with his coachs assessment, even after thumping a St. Louis team that played in the Western Conference finals last season.I still think weve got a lot to improve on in our game, he said. I didnt like some of our decisions. Its hard sometimes when you get up that fast. But Im not going to take anything away from the win. Its a big win at home.Sergei Bobrovksy, pulled in the first period against the Bruins, stopped 33 shots for the Jackets.Robby Fabbri scored twice and Vladimir Tarasenko and Kevin Shattenkirk also scored for St. Louis, which has lost three straight and five of seven.I think were in a spot right now where were a little dazed by the situation, Shattenkirk said.

Its frustrating for everyone.Jake Allen stopped eight of 12 shots and was pulled early in the second period.

Tarasenko and David Perron had three assists, but the Blues lost their fourth consecutive on the road by a combined score of 22-7. All St. Louis goals came on the power play.Were not competing at the puck near hard enough and were not firm with it, St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said. Thats a bad recipe.

BOSTON -- Celtics big man Al Horford said he plans to travel with the team on a two-game road trip that starts Saturday night in Indiana with hopes of returning to game action after being sidelined for nearly two weeks due to a concussion. Air Max 98 Gym Red .Horford, who has slowly navigated the NBAs return-to-action protocol, missed his fourth straight game with Fridays visit from the New York Knicks. He engaged in an individual workout before Fridays game and is encouraged by his recent progress.Ive been banged in the head before, but nothing like this, said Horford, who was reluctant to get into the specifics of the injury or his recovery.Im getting better each day and the past two days have been really good for me. I was able to get on the court a lot more and run up and down. Do a lot of movement, a lot of stuff I wasnt able to do a couple of days ago.The Celtics had lost all three games without Horford entering Fridays tilt with the Knicks and have been a mess defensively.Its been difficult [to watch] just because you want to be out there helping your teammates, fighting every night, Horford said. Its tested my patience this time. Everyone here has been very supportive, starting with coach [Brad Stevens]. Just down the line all the guys. But Im just very encouraged by my work today. I feel like Im in pretty good shape.Stevens said that Horford would only travel if he had the potential to play on the trip. The Celtics visit the Pacers on Saturday night, then play in New Orleans on Monday. The Celtics have urged Horford to be patient in his recovery.I dont want to even act like Im a doctor but, from what I understand, each concussion is unique, Stevens said. It was diagnosed as a mild concussion but as long as there are symptoms that reoccur then that continues the protocol. And thats good. Im thankful Im coaching in an era where thats the case. The most important thing is that his health is prioritized. And mild or not, a concussions a concussion.The 30-year-old Horford, who signed a four-year, $113 million deal with the Celtics this offseason, said he was now operating with an awareness that head injuries are much different than typical bumps and bruises.I honestly didnt understand it before now, Horford said. I would always hear stuff, see documentaries and stuff. But you dont fully understand -- you know, with an ankle, with a knee, Ive played through plenty of stuff and its no problem. But with the brain, its a little different. Its been a challenge for me because Ive had to be patient. The good thing is that now Im at the point that Im starting to feel good again. Air Max 98 Gundam For Sale . Radwanska, making her debut in the Seoul tournament, hit eight aces in a match that lasted 1 hour, 4 minutes at Olympic Park tennis stadium. "It was definitely a very good match -- I was playing really good tennis," Radwanska said. Air Max 98 Supreme For Sale . 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. http://www.gundamairmax98uk.com/air-max-98-tour-yellow-uk.html . Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. Call me a Cinderella cyclist. Im happy to gear up and ride anywhere, anytime -- until the clock strikes a certain witching hour. Then Im pedaling home hard to beat the sinking sun. Riding at night is an activity Ive avoided since I picked up road biking a decade ago. Id sooner hop on an indoor stationary bike to train for triathlons and even longer races, like centuries and gran fondos, than hit the road when the streetlights come on.Why am I so afraid of the dark? For starters, I dont trust drivers partly because, as a native New Yorker, I never got my license. I worry that I dont understand how folks behind the wheel think. These four-wheeled beasts feel foreign to me and my two-wheeled steed. It doesnt help knowing that more than 800 people lost their lives in a bicycle and motor vehicle collision in 2015, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. One in five of these fatal crashes happened between 6 p.m. and 8:59 p.m., reports the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center.Bottom line: I love my life, and putting it on the line for an evening ride never seemed worthwhile to me. I know that sounds dramatic, especially to some of my daring friends who think Im being overly cautious. Theyve long told me how peaceful and fun night riding can be. I dont doubt it. I know this bustling city, particularly Brooklyn where I live, can feel calmer in the darkness when everyones winding down from their workday. And frankly, as an anxious person, a little calm would do me good. In those ways, I realize Im missing out. This is why I was open to the idea of getting the right safety gear to finally give this a go.The detailsWhen I received an opportunity to test the new Visijax LED Cycling Jacket with Turn Signals from Sharper Image ($154.99, sharperimage.com), I initially wrote it off for the aforementioned reasons. But it stayed with me. Truth is, the best story ideas scare me a little. And I really do wish I were brave enough to bike at night for fun. A few days later, I returned to the website to watch the video on how it works and then read reviews on Visijax.com. One customer comment in particular gave me some hope: The lights are really, really bright and even when theyre not on, the yellow is unmissable. So I ordered one.Unlike my other cycling jackets, this unisex model had 23 built-in LED lights and reflectors strategically placed throughout, including the chest, arms and back. It comes with a small, lightweight, rechargeable Lithium-ion battery pack that lasts roughly 30 hours. It discreetly plugs into the jacket via an inside pocket and hidden cable.Flicking the lights on or off is easy. You just push the power button sticker on the front of the jacket, which connects to the battery, and choose from three operating modes: one tap to switch on front and rear lights (slow flash), a second tap for quick flashing mode, and a third to display all lights with no flashing. A fourth tap turns it all off and youre back to just a regular, no-frills neon jacket.The coolest part: Motion-activated turn signals in the sleeves (on the front and back, just below the shoulders) flash for about 5 to 10 seconds when you indicate youre heading left or right. This way, youre better able to communicate your riding intentions to others at all times.The testOn an unusually warm night this fall, my friend Tishon met me outsidee my Brooklyn apartment at 7:15 p. Air Max 98 Supreme Red. m. to bike about eight miles round-trip, heading north towards Williamsburg. I felt good about this little adventure because its a route Ive done many times in daylight and Tishons one of my badass friends who enjoys pedaling after hours. The minute I walked outside and switched on the jacket, I lit up like a Christmas tree. From the look of surprise on Tishons face, it really felt like Xmas, too.We laughed over my light show, then hit the road, down the highly trafficked street of Vanderbilt Ave. Using the well-marked bike lanes helped ease my nerves. My jacket was so bright that I didnt even use my standard mounted bike lights. When it was time to make a right turn, I happily flung my arms out to signal my plans. So far, so good.Once in Williamsburg, we veered to the left (arm up!) to this hidden little park overlooking the East River and Manhattans twinkling skyline. Then, after about 20 minutes of star and skyscraper gazing, we headed back south, toward home, but first we stopped for tacos. This afforded me another half-dozen brilliant turns onto main roads and side streets. By the time we got to my apartment around 10 p.m., I felt like a bonafide night rider. The cherry on top was when my neighbor Pepper, who was standing outside the building, looked at my shining armor with envy and asked where she could get one.What I likedFull disclosure: I love bright things. I own a fluorescent pink bike helmet and snazzy white sneakers. So I was kinda excited to wear this highlighter-yellow number out in public. That said, even I was a little self-conscious (see cons below), but I did feel very hard-to-miss. Knowing that my fashion statement would stop traffic did make me feel extra safe. This ultimately allowed me to enjoy stepping outside my comfort zone and expand my little world.What I didnt likeAs much as I love all that glitters and glows, I still felt a little shy in this hello-high-beams number. Its hard not to feel geeky in safety apparel in general (looking at you, knee pads), especially something this eye-catching. Also, I was pretty warm under all of these lights. The rainproof fabric, coated with Teflon to keep you dry, is breathable thanks to air vents, but on this temperate night it felt toasty. I had to roll up the sleeves to my elbows to let in the cool breeze as we rode, and that seemed to do the trick.Another concern: The motion sensors didnt always pick up on my turn signals. As the night wore on, my gestures became a bit more elaborate to set off the flashing. That could be because I only charged the battery for an hour beforehand. It probably needed a few more hours to be fully charged.Worth it?Yes, though I havent completely gone to the dark side. Riding on a cool, sunny day in a car-free zone will always be my preference. But with this jacket, I feel less vulnerable, more protected and truly open to opportunities to experience my favorite activity in a new way. In fact, I already have evening plans with another friend to hit the town on two wheels next week. Yup, Im officially taking this dazzling show on the road, and would recommend it if visibility is one of the key reasons holding you back from riding at night too.

NEW YORK -- Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira will have season-ending surgery on his right wrist. Vapormax Flyknit Bordeaux . The Yankees said Wednesday that the All-Star had an MRI with dye contrast and that team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad determined the torn tendon sheath had not adequately healed. New York said hand specialists Drs. Melvin Rosenwasser of New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Michelle Carlson of the Hospital for Special Surgery and Keith Raskin of the New York University School of Medicine school concurred in the diagnosis. Recovery time for the surgery is projected at six months. Teixeira was hurt while hitting off a tee March 5, when he was with the U.S. team at the World Baseball Classic. He made his season debut May 31, then came out of a game June 15 because of inflammation. He went back on the disabled list and did not respond to a cortisone shot. Toronto outfielder Jose Bautista, limited to four at-bats after July 16 last year because of a similar injury, had surgery last Sept. 4 and was ready for spring training. A two-time All-Star, Teixeira was batting just .151 with three homers and 12 RBIs in 53 at-bats. He is among five regulars who have missed a substantial part of the Yankees season. Derek Jeter, who turned 39 Wednesday, hasnt played with the team since breaking his left ankle last Oct. 13 in the AL championship series opener. He reinjured the ankle in April during rehabilitation. Third baseman Alex Rodriguez had left hip surgery on Jan. 16 and the Yankees say they expect both A-Rod and Jeter to return sometime after the All-Star break. Outfielder Curtis Granderson missed the first 38 games this season with a broken right forearm, an injury sustained when hit by pitch from Torontos J.A. Happ in his first at-bat at spring training on Feb. 25. Granderson returned May 14 and was in his eighth game back when he broke the knuckle on his left pinkie when hit by a pitch from Tampa Bays Cesar Ramos on May 24. Catcher Francisco Cervelli broke his right hand April 26 when hit by a foul tip off the bat of Torontos Rajai Davis. Nike Vapormax Flyknit 2018 . He says so-called TRT is only one problem and he wants to go even further than the ban. "Its about time," St-Pierre told reporters at a promotional event in Montreal on Friday. "I think its a good thing. Vapormax Flyknit Bleu . Team physician Dr. Steve Traina performed the surgery Friday. Robinson was injured in a spill underneath the Nuggets basket during the first quarter of Wednesday nights loss to the Charlotte Bobcats. http://www.vapormaxflyknitpascher.fr/ .

This story appears in ESPN The Magazines September 19 NFL Preview II Issue. Derek Carr Jersey . Subscribe today!AFTER A 12-YEAR hiatus, the World Cup returns for Round 3 on Sept. 17 in Toronto, with eight teams vying for global bragging rights, including the new continent-spanning Team Europe and Team North America, with 23-and-unders from the U.S. and Canada. Who will win? For that, we used the goals versus threshold (GVT)* metric -- think WAR -- to rank each roster. Then we sought out ESPNs mullet man himself, Barry Melrose, to pinpoint each teams X-factor player. Spoiler alert: The Canadians appear to be good at hockey.1. CANADAJust how good is Canada? The likes of Taylor Hall and P.K. Subban (who both posted north of 50 points in the NHL last season) didnt make the cut. Despite the scratch of the Stars Jamie Benn, forwards on this roster recorded an average of 65 points last season -- seven more than the U.S. team, the next-highest group. All seven defensemen averaged over 23 minutes per game, and Carey Price, the 2014-15 NHL MVP, will man the net. Giving Sidney Crosby and the Canadians home-ice advantage to defend the teams 2004 title almost feels unfair.MELROSE X-FACTOR: LW BRAD MARCHAND I think Marchand is a real lightning rod for Canada. If theyre a little flat, he will go out, run into somebody, get somebody mad and get Canada fired up.2. UNITED STATESFor those whove forgotten, the U.S. did win the first World Cup back in 96. And if Patrick Kane (46 goals for the Blackhawks) & Co. can give Team USAs trio of goaltenders (Jonathan Quick, Cory Schneider and Ben Bishop, who combined for a .923 save percentage) enough goal support, it has a shot this time too. The U.S. can grind down opponents with centers Ryan Kesler and David Backes in front of the net, creating opportunities for playmakers such as Kane, Zach Parise and T.J. Oshie. The test for the U.S. comes early: a faceoff with Canada in the preliminary round on Sept. 20.MELROSE X-FACTOR: LW JAMES VAN RIEMSDYK JVR is a 6-foot-3 forward with skill. The Americans need a big forward to have a successful tournament, and he is a bit of a wild card. A real pivotal player.3. SWE?DENThe Swedish roster combines experienced vets in forward Loui Eriksson, center Nicklas Backstrom and Canucks twins Daniel and Henrik Sedin with youth in the form of defenseman Victor Hedman and forward Filip Forsberg. The Swedes play a fast finesse game and can move the puck up ice in a hurry -- their defenders averaged 33 assists in the NHL last season, more than the average for any other team. Sweden has ten 20-goal scorers, which should provide plenty of cover for goalie Henrik Lundqvist, who holds a .923 save percentage over the past five seasons.MELROSE X-FACTOR: LW GABRIEL LANDESKOG I think its time for these young Swedes to take over up front, and Landeskog is one of those guys. Hes obviously a leader -- Colorado made him the captain very young.4. RUSSIAWhat to expect from Russia? Fast, physical, powerful -- just like its best player, left winger Alex Ovechkin, who netted 50 goals for the Caps last season. Russias forward group -- led by Ovi, St. Louis Vladimir Tarasenko, Pavel Datsyuk and Chicagos Artemi Panarin -- averaged 0.33 goals per game last season, third best of the eight teams. But will that be enough to counter shortcomings on the defensive side? The defense lacks a true game breaker, and none of Russias three goalies bettered a 2.75 goals-against average last season.MELROSE X-FACTOR: RW VLADIMIR TARASENKO Every year Tarasenko is a dominant player -- one of the top point getters, runs the power play. I think its time for him to show people how good he is on the big stage.5. NORTH AMERICAIts unfair to criticize this squad for being young. It literally exists for that reason. Still, the roster has just a combined 240 games of playoff experience, and six of the players have yet to skate in a playoff game. Break out the Baby Bjorns! Then again, whats age when youve got skill in the trio of phenoms Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel and Auston Matthews and the size of Seth Jones (6-4) and Colton Parayko (6-6) on defense? Also, the goaltending situation cleared up this spring with Matt Murrays Stanley Cup heroics for the Pens. Dont sleep on the JV team.MELROSE X-FACTOR: LW BRANDON SAAD The vast majority of this roster hasnt played significant minutes in big games -- Brandon Saad has. The more important he becomes in the lineup, the better he plays.6. EUROPEEurope falls into the dreaded Group A with the U.S. and Canada -- which would be great if this were a U.N. cocktail party and not, you know, ?a winner-take-all hockey tournament. Europes bigger problem? This is the oldest squad at the World Cup, with an average age of 30. The team will lean on the two-way play of center Anze Kopitar (plus-34) and scoring of winger Mats Zuccarello (26 goals). But the key will be picking the goalie, as the Islanders Jaroslav Halak and Thomas Greiss are both capable of winning games -- but also capable of blowing them.MELROSE X-FACTOR: D ROMAN JOSI Josi is going to be on the ice against every other teams best player. Hes going to see a ton of tough minutes, plus kill penalties and play the power play.7. CZECH REPUBLICThe good news? Forward Roman Cervenka, a late injury replacement for David Krejci, scored 23 goals last season in the Czech Extraliga, the most of anyone on the Czech roster. The bad news? Ten players on Team Canada and seven on Team USA surpassed that tally. The Czech Republic will need wingers Jakub Voracek and Ondrej Palat (55 and 40 points, respectively, last season) to take over games and goalie Petr Mrazek to play like he did in the first half of last season for Detroit (.932 save percentage before the All-Star break, .899 after). Defense is another story: The Czechs lack anyone who played at least 23 minutes per game last year.MELROSE X-FACTOR: RW DAVID PASTRNAK With his speed and shooting ability, Pastrnak can get open. Hes got a lot of experience for a guy at his age and could really become a star of that Czech team.8. FINLANDPatrik Laine checks in as the youngest player in the tournament, but the 18-year-old might have to put the Finns on his back at the World Cup. Laine, who scored 17 goals in Liiga last season, joins only one NHL 20-goal scorer on the roster, the Panthers Aleksander Barkov. On the other end of the ice, Olli Maatta and Sami Vatanen will have to be ready for big minutes on defense, and Tuukka Rask, who led Finland to a bronze medal in the 2014 Olympics, will have ?to rebound in net from a poor NHL campaign by his standards (2.56 GAA for Boston).MELROSE X-FACTOR: C MIKKO KOIVU Koivu has size, skating ability and a hockey pedigree but always leaves me wanting more out of him. I still think hes the most talented forward on that team.*Goals versus threshold (GVT) is calculated based on a three-year weighted average of the goal differential for each player on each roster compared with a replacement-level NHLer and then adjusted to likely ice time in the World Cup.

Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011. Rams rookie linebacker Josh Forrest will miss four to six weeks after suffering a knee injury during Sundays 14-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins, according to Los Angeles coach Jeff Fisher.Fisher said Monday the Rams most likely will place Forrest on the injured reserve list and promote linebacker Nic Grigsby from the practice squad to help on special teams. The coach did not specify the nature of Forrests injury.Forrest, 24, injured the knee on a second-quarter collision with teammate E.J. Gaines. Forrest was chasing Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill near the sideline when he tripped over Gaines as Gaines was pushed down.A sixxth-round draft pick out of Kentucky, Forrest has recorded three solo tackles, a pass deflection and a fumble recovery while serving as the Rams third linebacker, after Alec Ogletree and Mark Barron. Seth Roberts Jersey. His playing time has been inconsistent this season, because the Rams primarily use a nickel set that requires only two linebackers.From the Rams fifth to ninth games this season, Forrest played 44 percent, 26 percent, 2 percent, 19 percent and 7 percent of the defensive snaps, respectively.
