Ten years ago, Rory McIlroys father, Gerry, placed a 500-to-1 bet that his 15-year-old son would win the British Open before the age of 26. On Sunday, Gerry McIlroys faith in his son paid off – literally – as Rory won the Claret Jug and he cashed in to the tune of $171,000.  With many unknowns - his son being an amateur golfer and just 15 - the bet made by Gerry McIlroy required mostly blind faith in Rorys talent and potential. If you could take the same risk, with relatively similar unknowns, what bet would you make? One could follow McIlroys example and place a bet once again on Rorys success. With his British Open win, Rory has three major titles; a U.S. Open win, a PGA Championship and, now, a British Open title. McIlroy is 11 major wins away from Tiger Woods totla of 14. However, Woods last major win came in 2008, when he was 34-years-old. Would you bet on McIlroy to surpass Woods in the next 10 years? Or how about putting some money on a Canadian team winning it all? Since 1993, hockey fans in Canada have been waiting to see a Canadian team hoist the Stanley Cup. The Vancouver Canucks came close to the feat in 2011, but lost to the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. The future for many of Canadas teams seems bright. The Montreal Canadiens advanced to the Eastern Conference Final last season and seem primed for another run in 2014-15 and the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers look to have strong 10-year outlooks based on the young talent on their rosters. Would you bet on any one of Canadas seven teams winning the Cup within the next 10 years? Speaking of Montreal, its been 10 years since the Expos left town. The prospect of bringing baseball back to Montreal is an oft-talked about concept throughout Canada, though nothing is close to imminent. No stadium is in the works, or team up for sale, yet there is a small possibility a Montreal-based team could take to bat within the next 10 years. Earlier this month, commissioner Bud Selig said Montreal was an "excellent candidate in the future." A long-shot bet, but one many Montrealers may gladly take as they continue to wait and hope for the return of the game. Like baseball in Montreal, the debate of bringing NFL football to Toronto seems to always be on the minds of Torontonians. Yet, with the passing of Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson, the topic has received more attention than ever before. With a Toronto-based group reportedly led by rock star Jon Bon Jovi interested in purchasing the Bills, the city seems to have more hope than ever before. However, the Bills cannot leave Western New York until at least 2020 without incurring a $400 million penalty.  Theres also no guarantee Bon Jovis group would move the team north of the border. Certainly many questions and unknowns surround the situation, but would you take the bet that four-down football will be played in Toronto within 10 years, or are the citys hopes simply livin on a prayer? Hailing from north of Toronto, Andrew Wiggins appears poised for a strong NBA career. The 19-year-old was selected first overall in this years NBA Draft and has been touted as the leagues "next great player." If he lives up to the hype, Wiggins should join the NBAs elite and join the select company of players to win the leagues most valuable player award. Would you bet that Wiggins will live up to the hype and secure an MVP trophy within his first 10 NBA seasons? Another rising Canadian star that may be worth betting on is Eugenie Bouchard. The 20-year-old from Westmount, Quebec is coming off her first final at a major and has reached the semifinal round at all three majors in 2014. Bouchard currently sits seventh in the world rankings and appears to be ready to rise even further. Could Bouchard win each major tournament and complete a career Grand Slam by the age of 30? Her recent trend of success suggests that bet might be worth taking. Given the chance to make a bet looking 10 years into the future, do you think you would cash in on any of the above? Maybe you have your own intriguing long-shot wager that could have you laughing all the way to the bank. As always, its Your! Call. <a href="http://www.nbacavaliersofficial.com/Kyrie-Irving-Cavaliers-Jersey">Kyrie Irving Authentic Jersey</a>.

You can listen to the game on TSN Radio 1050 in Toronto. Toronto will try to halt its longest slide of the season. The current 0-2-2 stretch is the clubs worst skid since it dropped five straight (0-3-2) from March 7-16 of last season. Nazem Kadri will not be in the lineup tonight for the Leafs. Kadri will miss the game on bereavement after the death of his grandfather.  The 23-year-old has seven goals and 10 assists in 24 games this season. He missed three games in November after a suspension for his hit to head of Minnesota Wild goaltender Niklas Backstrom. Peter Holland will start in place of Kadri. Toronto wrapped its November schedule with a mediocre 4-6-3 record. The Maple Leafs suffered a regulation loss in their last game of the month, dropping a 4-2 decision at Montreal on Saturday. The Leafs fell behind 2-0 in the first period of Saturdays loss in Montreal and saw the deficit grow to four goals before James van Riemsdyk scored his 12th goal of the season with 1:50 left in the second period. Mason Raymond added Torontos only other goal of the game just 22 seconds later. Canadiens goaltender Carey Price made 12 of his 34 saves in a spotless third period to help the Habs hold on for the win over their bitter rivals. "I thought it was a hard-fought game," said van Riemsdyk. "There were times we didnt play as well as we could have. Those were the times that cost us the game." Jonathan Bernier gave up four goals on 39 shots for the Maple Leafs. Bernier could get the start again on Tuesday and is 1-2-0 with a 3.57 GAA in four career appearances against San Jose. Fellow Toronto goaltender James Reimer is 1-1-0 with a 2.02 GAA in two lifetime outings versus the Sharks. The Maple Leafs hope to get back on track tonight at the start of a brief two-game homestand. Toronto, which also will welcome Dallas on Thursday, is 9-4-0 as the host this season compared to a 5-6-3 mark on the road. Toronto went 0-2-1 on a recent three-game road trip and was winless on the road in November (0-4-3). Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul will sit out a fourth straight game on Tuesday duue to a groin injury.dddddddddddd Lupul has eight goals and seven assists in 22 tilts this season. Cody Franson will be a game-time decision for the Leafs on defence. Franson did not play in the Leafs Saturday night loss. The Sharks will try to match their longest winning streak of the season tonight. The Sharks have won their last five outings, leaving them one victory shy of their season-opening six-game tear from Oct. 3-15. All told, the Sharks have posted victories in eight of their past nine outings and their recent hot play has vaulted San Jose into first place in the Pacific Division standings. Anaheim, which hosts Los Angeles on Tuesday, is one point in back of San Jose for the Pacific lead. San Jose, however, has a solid 8-2-3 record as the guest this season and has won its last three trips to Toronto. The Sharks have taken five of six overall from the Leafs. The Sharks also played on Saturday when they recorded a home shootout win over the Ducks, who entered the contest tied with San Jose for first in the Pacific. Joe Pavelski scored in the second round of the shootout to lift the Sharks past Anaheim, 4-3, to take sole possession of the divisions top spot. Patrick Marleau had a goal and an assist for the Sharks, who went 5-0-0 on a recent five-game homestand. Martin Havlat and Logan Couture also lit the lamp Saturday, while Antti Niemi stopped 28-of-31 shots in the victory. "Its the division, its the conference," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said after the win. "Its that close. Its got to be exciting for hockey fans all over because there really isnt anybody thats pulling away or a clear-cut favorite, and some really important hard-fought games at this time of year." The Sharks received a scare in the first period when captain Joe Thornton was hit near the left eye with a deflected puck. The veteran centerman left the game briefly before returning later in the period. Thornton, who contributed an assist towards Saturdays win, has registered a point in five straight games and is expected to play on Tuesday. He is leading San Jose this season with 29 points on four goals and 25 assists. Niemi expects to get the start tonight for San Jose and is 1-1-0 with a 2.01 goals against average in two career games against Toronto. ' ' '

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals gave manager Mike Matheny a three-year contract extension through 2017 on Wednesday, rewarding him for deep post-season runs in his first two seasons in the job. The team also said that 2005 NL Cy Young Award winner Chris Carpenter is retiring after missing this season with a recurring nerve issue in his shoulder. Matheny led the Cardinals to the World Series this year, losing in six games to Boston. In 2012, his first season managing at any level, St. Louis fell one game shy of reaching the Fall Classic. The 43-year-old Matheny was a four-time Gold Glove catcher with St. Louis and had one year left on his deal. "We didnt want any distractions, we knew we wanted Mike to be a part of this organization for a long time," general manager John Mozeliak said Wednesday. "So we might as well deal with it and get it behind us. "Obviously, with the success hes had he deserves this contract," Mozeliak added. Chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. characterized Mathenys first two seasons as "pretty historic." Matheny called it an "amazing ride." Mathenys managed 30 post-season games the last two seasons and is among eight managers in major league history to lead a team to the post-season his first two full seasons. The Cardinals picked up Mathenys option for 2014 in February. "You look at how everythings kind of unfolded and you just never know," the manager added. "Opportunities come up and fortunately Ive been surrounded by some very, very good people." Mozeliak said the team hoped to "identify a future role" in the organization for the 38-year-old Carpenter. "When you think back to everything this organization has been through in regard to his ups and downs, he will still go down as one of the greatest weve ever had," Mozeliak said. Carpenter went 95-44 with a 3.07 ERA in nine seasons in St. Louis despite making only seven starts combined between 2007-08 and 2012. His began his career in 1997 with Toronto, signing with the Cardinals after the 2002 season. He missed all of 2003 with an injury and was 144-94 overall. "We think back to his career and what an amazing one it was," Mozeliak said. "He was part of so many highlights and I think he really created a culture of higher expectations." Carpenter won 21 games in 2005 and led the league in ERA in 2009, the same year he was named the NL comeback player of the year -- after having Tommy John surgery. Hes the franchise career leader with 10 postseason victories, the most memorable is his 1-0 win over the Phillies and Roy Halladay in Game 5 of the NL division series in 2011. "Chris will always be remembered as the leader of the pitching staff during one of the great eras of Cardinals baseball," DeWitt said. The Cardinals also purchased the contract of outfielders Oscar Taveras and Mike ONeill, and infielder Greg Garcia. St. Louis has 36 players on the 40-man roster. Taveras is the franchises top prospect and is coming off right ankle surgery after batting .306 in just 46 games at Triple-A Memphis. ONeill hit .320 in 98 games at Double-A Springfield and finished the year at Memphis where he batted .295, and the versatile Garcia batted .271 at Memphis and played second base, third base and shortstop. The Cardinals took left-hander John Gast, outfielder Jermaine Curtis and shortstop Ryan Jackson off the 40-man roster. Gast and Curtis were outrighted to Memphis and Jackson was claimed by the Houston Astros. Mozeliak called it a roster "clean up" prior to the winter Rule 5 draft. The team is seeking a replacement for Bengie Molina, an assistant hitting coach this year who last week was hired as the Texas Rangers first base coach and catching instructor. <a href="http://www.shopjerseyssaints.com/authentic-kenny-vaccaro-pink-jersey/">Kenny Vaccaro Authentic Jersey</a>.

As the Toronto Argonauts prepare to face their hated enemies from down the QEW, the Hamilton Tiger Cats, in this Sundays Eastern Final, theyre faced with something they havent experienced all season - a healthy receiving corps.Here are five thoughts on the Eastern Conference first-round series between the Toronto Raptors and Brooklyn Nets following Game 1. 1. NETS DEFENSE: Im giving Brooklyn credit. Their offense can sometimes betray you on the road but the D is always a constant. Its ironic; just recently an advance scout who I have a lot of respect for gave me his quick thoughts on how hed defend the Raptors. Extend your pickup point and really pressure their guards. Get out and challenge threes and chase them off the line at all cost. Keep the ball out of DeMar DeRozans hands with very physical denials. Body up to their people - they dont like contact and theyll turn it over. If you allow them to have flow theyll punish you.  Its interesting in the last two games that the Raptors played versus the NY Knicks on April 11 and 16; the Knicks used this strategy to force the Raptors into a combined 38 turnovers in those games. The Nets came in and did a terrific job in their coverage and forced the Raps into 17 turnovers and never allowed them to get comfortable.  Raptors half-court offense needs to toughen up and get sharper. 2. RAPTORS OFFENSE: I say this a ton of times - playoff offense is like having to go five-on-six against an opponent. Some teams will even use this in practice to toughen their teams up and require even higher-end execution. Its that hard, plain and simple! You could see it on Saturday afternoon that the inability to execute their schemes and go to counters/pressure releases when they got taken out of what they wanted was evident. The ability to establish a consistent paint presence with post-ups and penetration was inconsistent. Overall, the level of offensive toughness that you must have to succeed in the playoffs was lacking. Am I surprised? No. A young team in their first playoff game and it looked it. Theyll steadily improve and fight through that and begin to establish their style of play. They looked at their best when they were able to run off their defense and have space to do their thing. A key to the Raptors offense - pick up the defensive pressure and get the Nets on their heels more. Creator of circumstance vs. creature of it - choose your approach. 3. NETS 3-POINT SHOOTING: They were abysmal, shooting 4-24, which is uncharacteristic for them. Raptors brought good energy in trying to defend the line, yet some of the shots that Brooklyn missed were just plain decent looks that didnt go down. Will be important for Toronto to stay after iit and not allow the Nets to get comfortable with the long range game.dddddddddddd 4. PLAY BETTER: (DeMar DeRozan / Terrence Ross / Amir Johnson / John Salmons): Just look at their numbers. Theyd all be the first to tell you that they have to play a whole lot better. Theyre all good players whove been significant to the success of this team and they cant win without each of them playing at the level theyre capable of playing at. Bounce back time for each in Game 2 and beyond. Cant force it yet - come in with that approach thats made you successful all year and get after it. 5. MATCHUPS: Im concerned with the Joe Johnson (24 Points) and Paul Pierce (a very difficult cover at the four-spot) matchups. The Raptors struggled with this and have to do a better job in both instances. Johnson hurt them with his physicality and efficiency in the mid and low post, while Pierces outstanding ball skills and smarts along with his three-point shooting ability at the four-spot are a tough scenario for traditional power forwards to cover. Better effort in these two matchups, along with improved defensive assistance to help the guy having to guard those guys counter the issues will help, yet it cant compromise the ability to rebound and defend the three-ball. Energy level, communication, multiple effort, help/recovery and tight rotations will be things to watch. Just a first guess here; I try not to second guess a whole lot and try to put out there a thought to consider as we go forward. I have no issues with the defensive approach in Game 1. Dwane Casey and his staff are excellent and are on top of the details. They know their team better than anybody else. Not even close. Just a thought as a respectful first guess; in my opinion, I think Landry Fields is someone to consider if the current players in the Joe Johnson and Paul Pierce matchups arent able to get the job done. Hes got the size, athleticism, smarts, defensive range and toughness to hold his own in both instances. Any time you call on him, hes ready to go and does a nice job. I understand the concerns with his lack of perimeter shooting but in the playoffs, matchups become even more important to try and counter. Johnsons size, strength and physicality are an issue and Pierces mobility and distance shooting are a problem. Im confident that if he were ever called upon he could hold his own against both. Its just something to consider, again, as a respectful first guess. ' ' '

BEAVER CREEK, Colo. -- As usual, Aksel Lund Svindal was super fast on this hill. And it didnt matter that organizers altered the layout. The Norwegian star still navigated it to near perfection, even with falling snow, freezing temperatures and low visibility. Oh, yeah, he also is getting over a sinus infection. "Hes the king," Hannes Reichelt of Austria said. Here, Svindal definitely wears the crown. Svindal flew through the hybrid course -- one that was hard to see through the low-lying clouds -- to capture a World Cup downhill Friday. Svindal finished in 1 minute, 44.50 seconds, beating Reichelt by 0.17 seconds. Peter Fill of Italy was third. Canadas Manuel Osborne-Paradis came agonizingly close to his first World Cup podium in three years.The three-time World Cup winner from Vancouver finished four-hundredths of a second out of third.

Its just a matter of time before I get a podium," said Osborne-Paradis. "Im skiing better and Im skiing faster and more confidently. Its really just about putting it all together. My run was pretty clean. I made a mistake on the pitch and came out a little low and that probably cost me the race, but thats racing." Hudec, who also virtually secured his spot on the plane to Sochi with a 10th-place finish in the super-G at Lake Louise last weekend, skied well but made a few mistakes. "Im stoked to have another top 10," said Hudec. "Manny and I both owe a big thank you to our serviceman, who absolutely nailed the wax and did a great job on the skis. "It was a good day," said Martin Rufener, head coach of Canadas mens alpine team. "Manny was so close to the podium. Its a really technical downhill so it was a nice result for him. Erik has still not had many training days on the speed side but he was skiing well. To have two in the top seven and to just miss the podium - were very happy." American Bode Miller finished a solid 13th, rounding back into form after missing all of last season with a knee injury. This was Svindals fourth career win at this venue. No wonder he holds Beaver Creek in such high regard, even if it is the site of one of his most horrific crashes. In 2007, Svindal lost control over a jump and landed on his backside, sliding into a fence. During the fall, one of his razor-sharp skis went over him, leaving a 6-inch laceration of his left buttock. The cut so concerned doctors they went into his stomach to make sure everything internally was still intact. A distant memory, he said. He holds no animosity toward a venue thats otherwise treated him so well. Of his 52 career podium finishes, 11 have taken place at Beaver Creek. "The crazy thing is I dont really have bad memories, even from the year I crashed and spent two weeks in the hospital," said Svindal, who leads the overall World Cup standings after five races. "Its a good place to be in the hospital. There are super good doctors." Reichelt thought he turned in a good run in deteriorating conditions, maybe a winning run. Six skiers later, Svindal powered out of the starting gate, gaining ground on Reichelt at every interval. When Svindal finished and saw his time, he pumped his poles in the air in exultation. No one was going to catch him. This is his course, no matter how they lay it out. Usually, this is a familiar downhill course for the racers. Only this season, it was a hybrid path that featured part of the new womens downhill before switching over to the more traditional mens setting. "I like the old course better, I have to be honest," Svindal said. "This is a good course. But the old course is one of the best courses in the world. "I just decided to get after it. No one is going to ski this perfect in these conditions. So if you cant ski it perfect, you have to ski it aggressively." That was Millers approach, too. He showed flashes of his old form, the one that won him many races before sitting out last season with a surgically repaired knee. With Pink Floyds "Another Brick in the Wall" blaring over the loudspeaker, Miller charged full speed ahead, his arms flailing in places and one of his skis lifting into the air at one point. Miller, of Franconia, N.H., wound up 1.04 seconds behind Svindal. That hardly mattered to him. In this race, Miller actually felt really good on skis. He was enjoying it. "Even though the course is pretty basic and not that challenging in a way, I was fun today," Miller said. "I knew I had a bunch of intensity, so I tried to ski dynamic." He thinks his equipment and the weather held him back more than anything, not his knee. "I thought I skied pretty well," said Miller, who scooped up his young daughter and hugged his wife after finishing. "Even though its not a great result, Im happy with it. I skied the way I needed to ski. "I think the races have not been a good representation of where my skiing was at. In training, I was winning runs against everyone, Aksel and the Canadians and everybody. This is a closer result to how I ski. If we had the best skis out there or we got a little luckier, I think we couldve been in the lead." <a href="http://www.nbacavaliersofficial.com/Authentic-Lebron-James-Cleveland-Cavaliers-Jersey-Mens-Adidas-Nba-23-Gold-Alternate-98">Authentic LeBron James Mens Gold Jersey</a>. - Gaston Fernandez is making the most of his new job with the Portland Timbers. <a href="http://www.nbacavaliersofficial.com/Kyrie-Irving-Cavaliers-Jersey">Kyrie Irving Cavs Jersey</a>.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Anaheim Ducks defenceman Alex Grant has been reassigned to the minors despite scoring a goal on each of his first two NHL shots. The Pacific Division-leading Ducks also reassigned centre David Steckel and defenceman Nolan Yonkman to their Norfolk AHL affiliate. Grant scored a goal in his NHL debut on Nov. 30, and he added another in the Ducks victory over Minnesota on Wednesday night. He has two goals on two shots in his first two NHL appearances. The Ducks are hoping defenceman Francois Beauchemin returns from an injury for their next game Sunday against Edmonton. Anaheim defencemen Luca Sbisa, Sheldon Souray and Mark Fistric also are out with injuries. Steckel is scoreless in four games with Anaheim this season, but coach Bruce Boudreau has praised the veterans play. <a href="http://www.officialgiants.us.com/Black-Mark-Bavaro-Giants-Jersey.html">Mark Bavaro Giants Jersey</a>.

The Dutch were knocked from top spot despite winning two European Championship qualifiers, including an 11-0 victory over San Marino. Germany stays third and Uruguay rises to a best-ever fourth.If you want to look at the cold hard facts, the Kansas City Royals are now the only team in the Majors with a longer post-season drought than the Blue Jays. The Royals, who shrunk over the years from model franchise to annual also-rans, havent made it to the playoffs since 1985, the year they beat the Blue Jays in the American League Championship series en route to winning their one and only World Series title under the late Dick Howser. The past few years though, theyve developed a wealth of young home-grown talent, including catcher Salvador Perez, outfielders Alex Gordon and Lorenzo Cain, third baseman Mike Moustakas, shortstop Alcides Escobar and DH Billy Butler, not to mention outfielder Wil Meyers, who was dealt to Tampa Bay for pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis last year. The Royals are continuing their playoff push this off-season. They signed GM Dayton Moore to a two-year extension and then veteran lefty Jason Vargas to a four-year deal and this week, they traded for a needed lead-off hitter, getting Norichika Aoki from Milwaukee to play right field. The next move may be their boldest yet if they can bring back outfielder Carlos Beltran on a three-year deal. The bottom line is, even if they dont win the Central, theyd have to be a favourite for one of the two Wild Card slots, making it even more difficult for the Blue Jays to make it into the post-season. The Jays have been fairly quiet so far, non-tendering catcher J.P. Arencibia, signing catcher Dioner Navarro and then trading reliever Brad Lincoln to the Phillies for catcher Eric Kratz and lefty reliever Rob Rasmussen. Not exactly earth-shattering moves. GM Alex Anthopoulos is already dampening expectations for next weeks Winter Meetings at Orlando a bit by telling the Toronto chapter of the BBWAA that he doesnt eexpect to add any more than one starting pitcher from outside the organization in the off-season, when most believe they need two.dddddddddddd I trust Alex still has a few tricks up his sleeve, but if the Jays arent aggressive enough, they could find themselves with the longest post-season drought of all at 21 years and counting after the coming season. Lone Ranger? From all reports coming out of Texas, it sounds as though Arencibia is going to wind up in Texas as the back-up catcher to Geovany Soto and maybe a part-time DH. The Texas ballpark is made to order for J.P.s power stroke, and heres hoping he can rediscover or rebuild the rest of his game. Hes too good a person to flame-out in this game so soon. On The Move? Dont rule out the possibility of the Blue Jays dealing Adam Lind next week. Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay both want free agent first baseman James Loney. But the team that doesnt get him might come a-calling about Lind. Names From the Past A few more ex-Jays in the news this week include former 2B Kelly Johnson, who is reportedly close to signing a one-year deal with the Yankees in a utility role. Eric Hinske, who won the Rookie of the Year Award as the Blue Jays third baseman in 2002, retired to become the Chicago Cubs first base coach. Finally Dave Winfield, one of the Jays World Series heroes of  1992, left his front office post with San Diego to become special advisor to Tony Clark, the new Executive Director of the Players Association. Winfield and Clark are two of the most impressive and imposing men Ive ever met, both charismatic and intelligent and just dominant in size when they enter a room with Winfield at 66" and Clark at 68". The Players Association is in good hands after the tragic passing of Michael Weiner at 51 after a long battle with brain cancer. ' ' '

LARAMIE, Wyo. -- Wyoming coach Larry Shyatt was familiar with this feeling -- even if it had been a while. Riley Grabau scored 17 points, Larry Nance Jr. had 14 and the Cowboys beat No. 5 San Diego State 68-62 on Tuesday night to end the Aztecs 20-game winning streak. Shyatt was Wyomings coach 16 years ago -- almost to the day -- the last time a top-five team was upset in Arena-Auditorium. That was Feb. 12, 1998, when the Cowboys took down No. 5 Utah 62-56 on the same floor. "Its like a good bottle of wine -- it gets better with age," Shyatt said. The Cowboys (15-9, 6-5 Mountain West Conference) savored another marquee win Tuesday as fans rushed the court after the final buzzer, mobbing Wyoming players. "Their only other loss was to Arizona," Nance said. "I mean, to be in that category is awesome, you know? Fifth-ranked team, the fans storming the court like they did, it was spectacular." The Aztecs (21-2, 10-1) won 20 in row after losing to Arizona in their second game of the season. The streak tied the program mark set by the 2010-11 team, which finished a school-record 34-3 after reaching the Sweet Sixteen for the first time. "This is a tough league and you go on the road and it becomes even tougher. And with the win streak we had, I think everybody knows it and everybody talks about they want to be the team to break it and storm the court," SDSU coach Steve Fisher said. "And to Wyomings credit, they were the ones. They were the ones that did it. They played better and they deserved one." Dwayne Polee II led San Diego State with 15 points, followed by Xavier Thames with 13. "Youve just got to take it as a learning experience," said Thames, who was averaging 18.1 points. "Theres a lot of season left, so we cant hang our heads." Wyoming built a 16-point lead midway through the second half, catching the Aztecs defence lagging several times. At one point, the Cowboys slammed down four consecutive dunks. San Diego State mounted a furious comeback, closing within four points with 1:04 left and again with 40 seconds to go on two buckets by Winston Shepard, who finished with 10 points. But the Aztecs, who were averaging 73.4 points, failed to score again as Wyoming pulled away with free throws in the final 30 seconds. Nathan Sobey and Charlie Hankerson Jr. each had nine points for Wyoming, which used an efficient offence and a stifling defence to stop San Diego State. The game featured the top two defensive teams in the Mountain West. Entering the game, San Diego State was giving up an average of 56.6 points, while the Cowboys were allowing 60.4. But it was the Aztecs who had the most trouble making baskets, hitting 38 per cent of their field goals and committing 13 turnovers while Wyoming made 58 per cent of its attempts from the floor and had 11 turnovers. The Cowboys took a 32-23 halftime lead, closing out the last 4:20 of the first half with a 10-3 run keyed by two 3-pointers from Grabau. <a href="http://www.officialgiants.us.com/Black-Eli-Manning-Giants-Jersey.html">Eli Manning Giants Jersey</a>.

A Swiss Federal Tribunal ruling published Friday said that FIFAs disputes panel and the Court of Arbitration for Sport correctly imposed the sanction for Nantes enticing Guinea forward Ismael Bangoura to break his contract with Dubai club Al Nasr in January 2012. Nantes, which is 15th in the 20-team French league, previously had the ban frozen pending the federal verdict. "We can confirm that the registration ban will have to be served during the upcoming summer 2014 and winter 2015 registration periods," FIFA said in a statement to The Associated Press. Nantes can sell and release players but is barred from registering new signings with the French Football Federation. The ruling upholds the original judgment tthat Nantes and Bangoura are jointly liable to pay Al Nasr 4.dddddddddddd.5 million euros ($6.2 million) plus interest in compensation. The club and player had argued Bangoura could leave Dubai upon returning from the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations because his salary was unpaid. Bangoura has already served three months of a four-month playing ban ordered by FIFA. The Swiss federal court said the players separate appeal against the CAS ruling was filed too late to be accepted. Nantes won the most recent of its eight French league titles in 2001. It was a Champions League semifinalist in 1996. The Canaries were relegated in 2009 and spent four years in the second tier until winning promotion last season. The Swiss federal tribunal also ordered Nantes to pay 22,000 Swiss francs ($25,000) to both FIFA and Al Nasr, and 20,000 Swiss francs ($22,800) in court costs. ' ' '

INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana fans gave Victor Oladipo a warm welcome to the NBA on Tuesday night. Then the Pacers gave Oladipo and his Orlando teammates the cold shoulder. Paul Georges buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter spurred a 21-4 run, finally sending Indiana past the Magic 97-87 in a tougher-than-expected opening night matchup. "Weve got to win the battles, win the tough games and weve got to win the games that we should win," George said. "We have to take care of business early and not rely on the end of the season to start playing well and start getting a streak going. We have to start a streak early." They got off to a good start Tuesday -- even though it was a little ragged for a team that might have the best chance of unseating two-time defending NBA champion Miami. Indiana committed 20 turnovers and gave up 13 offensive rebounds against the worst team in the league last season. Roy Hibbert, who was two rebounds short of his career-high (17) in the first half, grabbed only one in the second half and left midway through the fourth quarter after an awkward tumble underneath his own basket that left him grasping at his knee. A few moments later, the 7-foot-2 former All-Star limped to the bench and coach Frank Vogel said Hibbert is expected to play Wednesday night at New Orleans. Despite the struggles, the Pacers still managed to get things done. George finished with 24 points, six rebounds and five assists. Lance Stephenson had 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Hibbert scored just eight points but had 16 rebounds and seven blocks and the rebuilt bench played a huge role, scoring all but four points during the decisive run. It left Vogel optimistic about the season. "Our bench, in the last three preseason games and tonight, really just blew the game open," he said. "I think theyre going to be really strong, I think it was just a matter of nerves tonight." The Pacers were aware they were facing split allegiances in Oladipos adopted home state. More than 90 minutes before tipoff, one section near the court was almost completely full of fans decked out in Indiana University colours or fans wearing new Magic jerseys, far more than the 18 to 20 people Oladipo said he gave tickets to. When the former Indiana star wasnt announced as a starter, the fans saved a rousing standing ovation for Oladipos grand entrance -- midway through the first quarter. But by the third quarter most of those cheers were drowned out by a smattering of boos, a sign that Oladipo is no longer just the hometown kid. The Magic were led by Andrew Nicholson, who scored all 18 of his points in the first half. Maurice Harkless added 14 and Jameer Nelson had 12 as the Magic shot 38.7 per cent from the field. But most of the near sellout crowd wanted to see how quickly and smoothly Oladipo could make the transition from college star to NBA franchise player. He finished 4 of 11 from the field with 12 points, three rebounds, two assists and three turnovers. "It was a great atmosphere. There were a lot of Hoosier fans in there," he said. "I would have liked to have won, but overall it was pretty cool." The short-handed Magic still had a chance after Ronnie Price cut the Pacers lead to 65-64 with 6.1 seconds left in the third quarter. After the basket, Orlando was called for delay of game and David West made the free throw. George then took the inbounds pass from his own baseline, drove to within 26 feet and made a 3 from beyond the top of the key to give Indiana a 69-64 lead. Indianas rebuilt bench then took control. The backups scored the first five points of the fourth quarter to extend the lead to 10, and that 12-4 run made it 86-68 with 7:35 left. Orlando, even with Oladipo, couldnt challenge the Eastern Conference runner-ups again. "We have to be dominant at home if we hope to compete for the one seed with the likes of Brooklyn, New York, Chicago and Miami," Vogel said. "You have to be dominant at home." NOTES: Indiana recognized last seasons Central Division title banner during pregame introductions. ... Pacers fans got a special preview of the 15-foot statue of Larry Bird that will be dedicated at a formal ceremony next weekend on the campus of Indiana State, Birds alma mater. It was temporarily placed in the lobby of Bankers Life Fieldhouse. ... The Pacers lead the all-time series with Orlando 45-44. ... Indiana Hoosiers coach Tom Crean told Orlandos Fox affiliate that he would miss Oladipos scoring and deflections more than his singing. ... Orlandos Tobias Harris and Doron Lamb sat out with sprained ankles. <a href="http://www.nflpanthersus.com/authentic-jason-avant-pink-jersey/">Jason Avant Authentic Jersey</a>. Justin Dowling, Travis Morin and Francis Wathier also scored for the Stars (22-10-5), who bypassed Abbotsford for top spot in the West Division, and Mike Hedden tacked on two assists. Defenceman John Ramage was a team-worst minus-4 for the Heat (23-13-2), who dropped their fourth game in a row. <a href="http://www.nflpanthersus.com/59-black-luke-kuechly-elite-home-jersey-nike-nfl-carolina-panthers-youth-nike656234.html">Black Luke Kuechly Elite Youth Jersey</a>.

Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca. Hi Kerry, In Wednesdays game between the Colorado Avalanche and the Ottawa Senators, Jan Hejda sent the puck into the crowd and was assessed a two-minute minor penalty. Already down a man, Colorado faced a considerably long two-man disadvantage which eventually led to two Ottawa goals. When looking back at the tape, the puck seemed to touch a teammates gloves on the way to the crowd. Would this still be considered as a delay of game although there had been a deflection? Thanks a lot,Patrick Scott --- Hello, Mr. Fraser and Happy New Year, I was wondering if you could explain the thinking on the delay of game call against Jan Hejda in the second period of the Sens at Avs game. Was it a missed call with the puck going off Max Talbots stick and into the stands or is that part of the rule? Obviously the replay does not come into play (since it was not reviewed), correct? Thanks for any info and for all you have done for the game. Scott Graves Patrick and Scott: Rule 63.2 is very clear that a minor penalty for delay of game is only imposed when any player, with both of his skates inside his defending zone, shoot or bats (using his hand or his stick) the puck directly (non-deflected) out of the playing surface, except where there is no glass. Once the end zone clearing shot by Avs defenceman Jan Hejda deflected off the glove/stick of teammate Max Talbot and over the glass no penalty should have been assessed! To be clear on the application of this rule, the same non-call should result even if the puck ticked or deflected off the top of the glass and then into the stands. This missed call from the game last night in Colorado provided Ottawa with a significant two-man advantage and resulted in two power play goals being scored by the Sens. I must tell you this can be a very tough call for even four officials on the ice to catch, unless the puck significantly changes direction to indicate a deflection has taken place. If a ref becomes a puck watcher (zeroing in on the constant movements of the puck) he tends to miss infractions elsewhere. Thats not a good thing! More importantly, the ref needs to have his head on a swivel and make constant adjustments in visual focus to determine potentiial fouls in hot-spot locations.dddddddddddd In a game of constant motion thats determined by recognizing the proximity opponents have to one another at all times when play is in progress and sometimes when its not. For example, if an attacker was in close proximity to Jan Hejda and finished a check or made an attempted stick-check on the Avalanche player, the ref might miss a foul if he immediately watched the path of the puck once it was released off Hejdas stick. It can also be difficult to follow the flight of the puck once it elevates above the white boards and is lost in the dark clothing worn by fans. A black puck on black equipment (glove) can also be difficult to detect in real-time unless an obvious redirect takes place. While Im not making excuses for missed calls, I want you understand the degree of difficulty in getting this call right 100 per cent of the time. We keep a tally board throughout the playoffs at TSN on various infractions and "puck over glass" usually tops the list. Often those infractions are committed at the worst time; either when a team is already a man short or in the late stages of a game or overtime. Circumstances such as these only magnify the demand for the Officials to get the call right is. Its also easy for the hockey world to microscope the eventual call through video replay which the officials have no advantage of. Beyond just maintaining the status quo I see a couple of possible options for your consideration. Some suggest throwing the rule out completely and only penalize a player when the referee deems the puck was "deliberately" shot over the glass. I am totally against this option because of the huge inconsistency in the standard of enforcement that would be created. Score and time remaining in the game would ultimately be factored into the refs decision. We dont need more of that old-school philosophy, but less of it! I believe the better option is to allow some sort of review or better yet a coachs challenge when the puck is shot over the glass that ultimately results in an error being made by the officiating crew. I would also like to see interference on the goalkeeper become a reviewable offense; particularly when a goal has resulted. Both of these calls have proven to be very difficult for the Officials to make in real-time and can be game-breakers.        ' ' '
