MAR DEL PLATA, Argentina -- Fabio Fognini defeated Juan Monaco in straight sets to rally Italy to a 1-1 draw with Argentina in their first round tie in the Davis Cup World Group on Friday. Fognini won 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 after Argentinas Carlos Berlocq had beaten Andreas Seppi 4-6, 6-0, 6-2, 6-1 on the outdoor clay surface. Doubles are set for Saturday with reverse singles on Sunday to decide which team reaches the quarterfinals. "I played really well," Fognini said. "Monaco never give in, but playing at the top was the key for me." Argentina is playing without its top player Juan Martin del Potro, who has chosen to skip Davis Cup and focus on tour events. Berlocq gave Argentina a perfect start. "I felt like you have to feel in a Davis Cup match -- with determination and dedication," Berlocq said. "When I was on the court and fans screamed gladiator, it gave me a lift." Argentina is a four-time runner-up in the Davis Cup but has yet to win tennis top team event. Italy has won once. The winner faces either Britain or the United States in the quarterfinals.

The guard, taken by the Texans with the first pick in the second round on Friday night, believes the time off helped him improve as a player and a person. "Obviously I was away from the game for two years, but I think it helped me be physically more mature and mentally more mature and helped me just become a better football player," he said. "When I came back I was an older guy. I was more suited to be a leader at UCLA. I look at it all positive." Despite a need at quarterback, the Texans went with another position again after selecting defensive end Jadeveon Clowney with the No. 1 overall pick on Thursday night. They continued that trend in the third when they took Iowa tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz with the 65th pick. Houston traded the first pick in the fourth round (101st overall) and the first pick in the fifth round (141) to the Eagles to move up and select Notre Dame nose tackle Louis Nix at No. 83. Despite their need at quarterback, the Texans have also drafted defensive end Jadeveon Clowney with the No. 1 overall pick and guard Xavier Sua-Filo in the second round and picked up tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz with the 65th overall pick. Nix started eight games in 2013 and finished with 27 tackles and two tackles for losses. Houston general manager Rick Smith said Friday night that he still believes there are some good quarterbacks left in the draft. "Weve done a lot of work on quarterbacks throughout the process because it is a position -- wed like to be able to draft quarterbacks and develop young quarterbacks and thats certainly something that we want to do," Smith said. "But we will always do that with corresponding value. So if theres an opportunity for us to do that (Saturday), we certainly will entertain that." In 2009, Sua-Filo became the first true freshman in UCLA history to start 13 games before leaving for his mission in Alabama and Floriida.dddddddddddd He picked up right where he left off in 2012 when he started 14 games at left guard for an offence that averaged 466.5 yards a game. He split time between left guard and left tackle last season and won the Morris Trophy as the Pac 12s top offensive lineman. Sua-Filo isnt sure how the Texans will use him, but hes looking forward to showcasing his versatility in Houston. "I can play either," he said. "I just want to get in there and I want to compete and contribute and help the team as best as I can." Fiedorowicz had 30 receptions for 299 yards and six touchdowns last season. Houston re-signed tight end Garrett Graham this off-season, but lost tight end Owen Daniels in free agency. The 6-5, 265-pound Fiedorowicz said he has always looked up to New England tight end Rob Gronkowski and that despite his own skill as a blocker he wants to prove he can be a well-rounded tight end. "I feel like Im going to really prove to everybody that Im a dual-threat," he said. "Im going to catch the ball, Im going to block on the edge and do everything (OBrien) asks." Sua-Filo has fashioned his game after veteran New England Patriots guard Logan Mankins and raved about his skills. "I love the way he plays," Sua-Filo said. "I think hes physical. I think hes nasty. You know, I try to implement as much from his game that I can." The 6-foot-4, 307-pound Sua-Filo, perhaps unsurprisingly, is looking forward to the culinary delights in Houston. "The whole state of Texas is pretty great, but Im looking forward to eating at Pappadeaux and Whataburger," he said of the Houston-based Cajun restaurant and the burger-chain, which started in Corpus Christi, Texas. Nix started eight games in 2013 and finished with 27 tackles and two tackles for losses. He cant wait to join a defensive line with 2012 Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt and Clowney. "I never thought ever in life that would happen," Nix said. "Im super excited."

After a bit of a slow start at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games, the United States is right up there in the overall medal standings. Seven days into the competition, the U.S. began the day with four gold, two silver and six bronze medals. They are ranked fifth and have the second largest total amount of medals (12) behind Norway. Team USA has produced medals in alpine skiing, freestyle skiing, figure skating, luge and snowboarding. The glaring omission: long track speed skating. Coming into these Games, the U.S. was third in the all-time long track speed skating standings with 67 total medals and they lead in overall gold with 29. Its been 30 years since the U.S. didnt win at least one speed skating medal at the Olympics. In Sochi, Americans Brittany Bowe and Heather Richardson were the undisputed gold medal favourites in the womens 1,000 meters. Between the two, they won every World Cup race this season but in Russia they finished seventh and eighth. Shani Davis was expected to complete his historic three-peat in the 1000m and yet he finished eighth. No American has finished better than seventh place so far. In a sport where races are decided by hundredths of a second, the talk in Sochi has been about the new Under Armour suits U.S. skaters are wearing. Developed in secrecy in corporation with Lockheed Martin, the Mach 39 as it is known even looks uncomfortable to the untrained eye. A ventilation panel on the back is possibly to blame for taking in air, which hinders skaters from achieving the deep squatted stands required to deliver the ultimate stride. Then there is the U.S. training facility. American skaters have been preparing for Sochi in a building that hosts the fastest ice on the planet in Salt Lake City. The oval is on altitude which ensures fast conditions. However, the Adler Arena in Sochi is on sea level and its properties are completely different. The ice is considered slow where skaters need to rely less on technique and finesse and more on stamina and sheer determination. Team Canada trains on altitude in Calgary and perhaps it is not a coincidence that Denny Morrisons memorable silver moment is the only Canadian medal in Sochi so far. Time is running out for the U.S. long track team - and for Canadas - with only six medal events left at these Games. Both countries have slim medal hopes in the mens 10,000m and the womens 5,000m. The 1,500m - often considered the crown jewel of long track - is wide open but other than that, medaling at the team pursuit is needed to prevent historic lows. Shaquill Griffin Seahawks Jersey.ca! There is plenty of blame to be shared as a result of the most recent NHL player (Pittsburghs Brooks Orpik) to be evacuated from the ice on a stretcher following an ugly incident Saturday night in Boston.

Delano Hill Youth Jersey. -- The Vancouver Whitecaps remained unbeaten with a scoreless draw at the New England Revolution on Saturday. Malik McDowell Womens Jersey. The four-time Grand Slam champion has beaten Hantuchova nine straight times, with the Slovaks only win coming when they first played 10 years ago. "I had a tough first opponent who can play extremely good tennis," Sharapova said.Three weeks ago, Calgary Flames goaltender Reto Berra made his NHL debut and picked up a big victory over the Chicago Blackhawks. It has been a continued struggle for the Flames since, but theyll try to make it two victories in a row on Wednesday night when they take on a Blackhawks club that is slated to give Antti Raanta his first career start. Watch the action live on TSN at 10pm et/7pm pt. Berra was thrown into the Flames goaltending mix on Nov. 3 and stopped 42 of the 44 shots he faced in a 3-2 overtime victory. He earned the triumph when Kris Russell scored 1:32 into the bonus frame. "Honestly I had a lot of thoughts," Berra said of the time leading up to his debut. "Everything went through my mind. Right after lunch I always sleep, but today I couldnt sleep. I was really nervous, but right before the game, when I was just sitting in here, I just thought, Go out and play your game and have fun. You have nothing to lose. I put the excitement and the nerves into a positive energy." Berras efforts helped the Flames snap a three-game series slide to the Blackhawks. Hell get the call again tonight with Calgary looking to win for just the fifth time in the last 13 encounters at home. Berra will make his 10th start in 11 games tonight since joining the Flames and helped the club to just its second victory in nine games with Fridays 4-3 shootout decision over the Florida Panthers. Berra made 23 saves and Sean Monahan had the clincher in the sixth-round of the tiebreaker. Joe Colborne had a goal and an assist for Calgary, while Sven Baertschi and Blair Jones also lit the lamp in a game the Flames won despite blowwing a 3-1 third-period lead.dddddddddddd "We made it too interesting in the third period, but we found a way to win," Flames head coach Bob Hartley remarked.Calgary snapped a six-game home slide (0-4-2), but is likely to be without forward T.J. Galiardi tonight after he exited practice on Monday with back spasms. The Blackhawks have hit few bumps like the one against the Flames as they lead the NHL with 38 points. They have won three in a row since dropping the opener of their seven-game homestand last Tuesday in Colorado and are coming off Mondays 5-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers. Jonathan Toews had a short-handed goal and Patrick Kane scored on the power play during a three-minute span in the first period, while Andrew Shaw added two goals and an assist. "Every game is a new challenge. Getting up early was the key," said Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville. "Obviously the short-handed goal was big for us. It really put us in a good spot." Corey Crawford made 24 saves -- including 11 in the third period -- for his NHL-leading 16th win. Crawford is expected to get the night off, giving the 24-year-old Raanta his first NHL start. The Finnish rookie has been serving as the backup with Nikolai Khabibulin injured and made his NHL debut in the loss to Colorado, stopping 14-of-16 shots in 47 minutes of relief. Both Kane and Marian Hossa scored earlier this season versus the Flames. That was part of Kanes current 11-game point streak in which he has totaled six goals and nine assists. Hossa, meanwhile, has rejoined the Blackhawks after missing the previous two games due to personal reasons.

MIAMI -- Chicago Cubs pitcher Travis Wood delivered a victory from the mound on Sunday. A day later, he did the same from the batters box. The pinch-hitting pitcher had an RBI double with two outs in the 13th inning, giving the Chicago Cubs a 5-4 victory over the Miami Marlins. "I knew I was coming up that inning, so I had been stretched out, swinging down in the tunnel," Wood said. "I came up, luckily Junior got on and I was able to hit it down the line and put us up." Called on to bat for reliever Carlos Villanueva (3-5), Wood hit a sharp groundball off Jacob Turner (2-5) down the left field line, scoring Junior Lake for the go-ahead run. Wood was pressed into action as available players dwindled. Cubs manager Rick Renteria used lefties Chris Coghlan and Nate Schierholtz in the seventh and 10th innings, respectively. By the 13th, the Cubs had gone through seven pitchers and all batters but righty Eli Whiteside. "(Whiteside) was my last guy, then if we get beyond and I use Russ (James Russell), I need somebody to pitch and I still need another body," Renteria said. "The way (Wood) handles the bat, he gave us, he gave himself a chance in that at bat." Wood, who is hitting .250 this season, was 0 for 4 as a pinch hitter entering the game. "I always hit growing up, out of high school," Wood said. "I didnt have 3, 4 year of not hitting. So I kind of just stuck with it and its part of my job as a starting pitcher in the National League, so I practice at it and try to do the best I can." Miamis Tom Koehler was near perfect to start, retiring 14 of the first 15 batters. Only Mike Olt registered a hit against the Marlins starter during that stretch. But the Cubs overcame a 3-0 deficit in the sixth inning, highlighted by Starlin Castros three-run homer. After the Marlins were unable to turn a double play on pitcher Justin Hammels bunt, Luis Valbuena and Justin Ruggiano followed with singles. Hammel ended Koehlers shutout when he scored on a groundout by Anthony Rizzo. Castro then gave Chicago a 4-3 lead with a three-run homer, his 10th of the season. "Other than the curveball that I hung there, they did a good job of hitting some quality pitches," Koehler said. "Unfortunately, in this game the results dont always mirror the quality of the outing. I do feel like I let the guys down when we had that three-run lead going into the inning." Koehler, who gave up five hits and struck out five, failed to get beyond the sixth inning for the third time in his last four starts. "Tom is having a tough time getting through that sixth inning," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "He was breezing. Hes got to fight through that to win games at this level." The Marlins responded in the bottom half of the sixth. Marcell Ozuna led off with a triple and scored on a sacrifice fly by Adeiny Hechavarria. Hammel allowed four runs and eight hits. He struck out nine in six innings. Giancarlo Stanton put the Marlins on the board in the first inning with his 19th home run, a two-run line drive that just cleared the right field wall. "I could not get the slider down and that was the ball that Stanton hit," Hammel said. "Ive never seen a home run like that. I think it took two seconds to get out of the ballpark. I thought it was going to be a foul ball and hitting the base of the wall or something. Thats impressive." Miami padded its lead in the third when Stanton scored on Casey McGehees single to right. The Marlins failed to convert with the bases loaded in the seventh. Garrett Jones grounded into a forceout at home and Ozuna struck out looking. NOTES: The Marlins observed a moment of silence for Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, who died Monday. ... The Cubs improved to 3-6 in extra inning games this season. The Marlins fell to 4-6. ... Castro registered his 11th three-hit game and now shares the major league lead in the category with Colorados Troy Tulowitzki. With his home run in the sixth, Castro picked up his eighth extra-base hit in his last 10 games. ... The Cubs intentionally walked Stanton in the 11th inning, giving the Marlins slugger 14 intentional passes this season. Stanton trails only Bostons David Ortiz (15) in intentional walks. ... Jake Marisnick and Justin Bour, both recalled from Triple-A New Orleans, saw action in Mondays game. Marisnick batted leadoff in place of the injured OF Christian Yelich and finished 2 for 6 with run, a walk and two stolen bases. Bour struck out in a pinch-hit appearance for Koehler in the sixth inning, ... The teams continue the series Tuesday night, with Chicago RHP Jeff Samardzija (2-6) facing RHP Anthony DeSclafani (1-1).

On one side, this is a ridiculous issue. http://www.jerseyshoptheofficialdolphins.com/Elite-Raekwon-Mcmillan-Dolphins-Jersey/.

Charles Harris Youth Jersey. -- Creighton apparently has Villanovas number. Raekwon McMillan Youth Jersey. Pinch-hitter Tommy Medica singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and the Padres beat the Seattle Mariners 2-1 in their first home game since Gwynn died of cancer Monday.There is no doubting Ales Hemsky has been a nice addition to the Senators lineup. Over the past two games, Hemsky has assisted on six goals and found instant chemistry with Jason Spezza. For most of the season, Sens fans bemoaned the fact that Spezza was not playing with quality wingers. These last two games with Hemsky have only served to tease everyone, wondering what could have been if Hemsky was riding shotgun with Spezza all season long. But would the Senators be sitting in a playoff spot if they had acquired Hemsky a few months ago? Since Im officially banned from using the phrase "probably not" in this town, I will instead answer by saying I think its highly doubtful the Senators would be sitting in a playoff spot if Hemsky had been here since October. Ottawas big issue this season has been in their own end. And to be brutally honest, that has been their biggest problem since Paul MacLean took over as head coach a couple of years ago. To MacLeans credit, he has drastically improved the offense on this team. When they missed the playoffs in Cory Cloustons last season at the helm, Ottawa scored just 193 goals and was one of only three NHL teams who failed to crack the 200-goal barrier in 2010-11. So heading into MacLeans first season, the big question was: Who is going to score goals for the Senators? But MacLean worked his offensive magic and had terrific seasons from the likes of Spezza, Milan Michalek and Erik Karlsson and the team ended up scoring 249 goals and ranking in the top five in the NHL in that category. Thats a remarkable transformation; bottom five in the league in goals one year to top five the next. But Ottawas defensive game showed no real improvement in that first season under MacLean. They ranked 24th in goals against under Clouston (giving up 250 goals) and they also ranked 24th in goals against under MacLean (giving up 240 goals). In fact, no team that made the playoffs in 2012 allowed more regular season goals than the Senators. And when you give up as many goals as the Senators do, you either make the playoffs by the skin of your teeth - or miss them altogether. This trend appears to be rearing its ugly head again this season, as the Senators have no real problems scoring goals. They currently rank in the top half of the Eastern Conference in goals scored with 185 - more than playoff-bound teams like Montreal, Philadelphia and the New York Rangers. But the Senators have surrendered an astounding 213 goals this season - the second-worst total in the entire NHL. And no matter how many goals Hemsky would have added to the offensive side of the ledger, its hard to imagine how he would have helped with the defensive breakdowns that have been problematic with this team forr months.dddddddddddd A lot of people will point to the lockout-shortened season a year ago, where the Senators were the stingiest team in the Eastern Conference, sporting a 2.08 GAA. But last year needs to be taken with a grain of salt because it was only a 48-game schedule and the Senators were still giving up a ton of quality chances. Take a look at Ottawas NHL ranking in shots allowed/game since MacLean took over and you will see they didnt actually have a great defensive improvement in that department last season: Shots Allowed/Game (NHL Rank) 2011-12: 32.0/game (29th in NHL)2012-13: 31.3/game (23rd in NHL)2013-14: 34.4/game (28th in NHL) Even though the Senators were near the top of the league in GAA in 2012-13, they were still giving up too many shots and chances each night. They werent necessarily playing a tough, defensive style. Instead, they were bailed out by unbelievable goaltending that was producing numbers that were never going to be sustainable for the long-term. Craig Anderson, for example, had a .933 save percentage while short-handed last season - a number that has tumbled by more than 100 points this year. In short, the Senators brilliant goaltending masked the issues for this team last season. Now that the goaltending has been average this season, it highlights the defensive issues that have been around for the better part of three seasons. The best teams in the NHL over the past three years - like Chicago, St. Louis and Los Angeles - have all ranked in the top 10 in fewest shots allowed. Even a team like the Blackhawks, who have the reputation of being offensive-oriented, have allowed the fourth-fewest shots against this season. Again, MacLean deserves a ton of credit for turning this team into an offensive juggernaut. And if Hemsky re-signs next season, there is every reason to believe he can flourish in this system. But now is the time that MacLean and his staff need to fix the defensive flaws with this team. He is trying to implement a similar system he used in Detroit when they won the Stanley Cup in 2007-08. That season, the Red Wings had no trouble scoring goals, ranking third in the NHL in that department. But they also allowed the fewest shots per game at 23.5 - the best number in the entire league. The offensive comparisons to Detroit are accurate, but its the defensive game for Ottawa that still has miles to go. Bryan Murray didnt make any trades involving defensemen at the deadline because the organization believes they have the right personnel on the back end. If thats the case, its the system that needs to be adjusted moving forward. So when it comes to the re-build that started a couple of years ago, its fair to say the Senators are only halfway there.

FALL RIVER, Mass. -- Aaron Hernandezs attorneys on Monday sought to have a murder charge dismissed, saying prosecutors dont have enough evidence to tie the former New England Patriots star to the murder of a semi-professional football player. Prosecutors countered that they can show Hernandez was with Odin Lloyd when he was shot and that Lloyds killing was part of a pattern of Hernandez committing acts of violence following nightclub disputes. Also Monday, the former tight end pleaded not guilty to charges that he attacked a handcuffed inmate and threatened to kill a guard and his family while at a county jail in Dartmouth. Hernandez faces murder charges in Lloyds June 17, 2013, slaying, as well as a separate case in which he is accused of gunning down two men in Boston in July 2012. He has pleaded not guilty in each case and is being held without bail. Judge E. Susan Garsh will rule at a later date on the motions to dismiss the Lloyd murder charge and to suppress certain evidence gathered by the state, including cellphone records and surveillance video from dozens of cameras at Hernandezs North Attleborough home. The judge on Monday also floated a possible trial date of Oct. 6, and she set a July deadline for the New England Patriots to respond to the defences requests for access to the football teams personnel records. Hernandez defence attorney James Sultan called the prosecutions evidence "woefully lacking" and maintained that the state has yet to suggest a specific motive for Lloyds killing. "Theres certainly a lot of what I would call smoke. No doubt about it," Sultan said. "But you cant throw a bunch of stuff at the wall and say, Well, thats good enough. Thats not probable cause that he committed the crime." Prosecutor William McCauley countered that the state has "powerful" evidence against Hernandez. In what amounted to a preview of the states arguments, he said toll booth, surveillance, GPS and cellphone records clearly place Hernandez in the car with Lloyd at the time of his murder. McCauley said the states evidence also shows Hernandez had the "presence, knowledge and intent" to see the murder to its completion. Prosecutors also suggested incidents in Boston, Providence and Miami show a "common pattern" of violence by Hernandez following disputes at nightclubs. But Hernandezs lawyers pushed back against that notion, saying it was part of a persistent attempt to trash Hernandezs character. They criticized prosecutors for their focus on his "affinity for guns," his drug use and past run-ins with law enforcement. Lloyd had been at a Boston nightclub with Hernandez and others days before his bullet-ridden body was found about a half mile from Hernandezs North Attleborough home. Prosecutors in Boston have said a spilled drink in a nightclub led Hernandez to kill two people in a drive-by shooting. Another Hernandez associate, Alexander Bradley, has filed a civil lawsuit alleging Hernandez shot him in the face on Feb. 13, 2013, after they argued following a visit to a Miami strip club. Dressed in a blue blazer and khaki dress pants, Hernandez sat passively through Mondays nearly three-hour court hearing, one of the longest since his arrest last year. His mother and other supporters sat in the audience, as did Lloyds mother and others. Mike Palmateer Maple Leafs Jersey Authentic.

ABERDEEN -- After capturing his first major title at last years U.S. Open, Justin Rose took nearly 13 months to return to the winners circle. Now hes heading to the British Open seeking a third tournament victory in three weeks. Rose turned the final round of the Scottish Open into a procession on Sunday, calmly shooting a 6-under 65 to win by two strokes and seal back-to-back successes either side of the Atlantic. A fortnight ago, the Englishman won the Quicken Loans National at Congressional in a playoff to finally shrug off that hangover from Merion. \"Its uncharted territory for me -- Ive never won two in a row before,\" said Rose, who has banked almost $2 million in prize money from his two victories. The big question now is: can he make it three in a row? Definitely, judging by his impressive body of work over the Royal Aberdeen links since Thursday. Four straight rounds in the 60s. Imperious iron play in varying wind conditions. Brilliant putting, which has long been his weak point. The confidence of being a major champion stood out Sunday -- Rose was nerveless from the moment he rolled in a 12-foot putt on the second hole, the first of six birdies. His closest challengers had no chance, with playing partner Marc Warren -- who started out in the last group with Rose tied at 10-under -- watching on in awe. \"Not a lot I could have done about that,\" said Warren, who shot a 70 for third place. \"Once he gets out in front, hes very tough to catch. The whole day he was very clinical. \"I dont like being on the end of it but it was a pleasure to watch.\" Unheralded Swede Kristoffer Broberg finished second on 14 under after a 66, one of a slew of low scores on a windless final day that left Royal Aberdeen defenceless and there for the taking. If players wanted one last tough test before Hoylake, it wasnt going to come here with because of a lack of wind off the North Sea, soft greens after morning rain and some easy pin positions. Broberg earned one of the three qualifying places for the British Open at Hoylake, along with other top-10 finishers Tyrrell Hatton and Scott Jamieson. Scotlands Stephen Gallacher and Chiles Felipe Aguilar broke the course record with 8-under 63s and deposed champion Phil Mickelson saved his best round for last with a 65. Mickelson was tied for 11th while Rory McIlroy tied for 14th after a 67. Both world stars seemed satisfied with the state of their games ahead of the British Open, however. \"I feel a lot sharper and I feel like I have direction in my ball-striking and direction in my short game and putting,\" said Mickelson, who will be defending the claret jug. Likely up to No. 3 in the world from No. 6 with this 15th professional victory worldwide and first in Europe since 2007, Rose is in prime form heading to his home major. And there was no stopping him here. The Englishman rolled in birdies at Nos. 2 and 3 -- the latter from 25 feet -- to power into a two-shot lead over Warren, who was looking to avenge a final-round meltdown at the Scottish Open two years ago when he blew a three-shot lead with four to play. Rose added three more birdies in the front nine and another at No. 12, before parring his way home. He had the luxury of being able to soak up the applause as he ambled down the 18th hole, having planted his drive straight down the fairway and his approach onto the centre of the green. His iron play has been commanding this week, reviving memories of the form he produced at Merion. \"I was pretty calm out there as I got off to a good start,\" Rose said. \"I never felt in a lot of trouble. Rose is making a habit of winning on tough courses, with Royal Aberdeen joining a list that includes Merion, Doral, Valderrama and most recently Congressional. \"It feels unbelievable to be back in the winners circle so quickly,\" he said.

Not because it was right, but because referees werent allowed to determine it was wrong.KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Two Pro Bowl players were missing at the start of the Chiefs mandatory minicamp, one of them hoping to land a new contract and the other let go so that the team might be able to afford it. Justin Houston, their talented young pass rusher, is entering the final year of his rookie deal. Hes due to make only $1.4 million, a bargain for a linebacker who has piled up 26 1/2 sacks in three seasons. And in whats believed to be a negotiating ploy, Houston not only skipped three weeks of voluntary workouts, but hes also skipping this weeks three-day minicamp. The Chiefs practiced Tuesday for the first time since releasing cornerback Brandon Flowers. The move last Friday saves the Chiefs about $7.25 million against the salary cap this season and $7.5 million next season, money that could be used in a deal for Houston. Of course, the Chiefs have two other pending free agents in quarterback Alex Smith and centre Rodney Hudson. That means they might have to get creative if they want to keep all of them. In the meantime, first-round pick Dee Ford got first-team reps in place of Houston during Tuesdays practice. Marcus Cooper and Ron Parker split time at cornerback in place of Flowers and fellow starter Sean Smith, who was excused from the workout with an illness. \"Every day I go out there as if Im the starter, so I cant say its any different if (Flowers) is here or isnt here,\" Cooper said. \"Just keep grinding, getting better every day.\" Cooper was a revelation early last season, a seventh-round pick claimed off waivers from San Francisco who wound up starting six games and picking off three passes. He went through a rookie luull midseason, but came on toward the end, giving the Chiefs front office a sense of confidence that they would be able to withstand Flowers release.dddddddddddd. Still, the change brings even more instability to the defensive backfield. The Chiefs already had allowed starting free safety Kendrick Lewis and backup defensive back Quintin Demps to sign elsewhere, opening a couple of holes they are hoping to fill internally. Husain Abdullah and Sanders Commings appear to be the first in line. \"We have guys who can step up,\" Commings said. Tight end Travis Kelce, wide receiver Kyle Williams and cornerback David Van Dyke did individual workouts and the install period, but were otherwise limited. Kelce is coming off knee surgery, Williams a torn ACL and Van Dyke a hamstring injury. Rookie running back DeAnthony Thomas appeared to be overcome by the heat and humidity on a warm afternoon. He chugged water on a knee after one series of plays, then took a swing pass to the end zone, where he collapsed. He wound up walking to the shade and spent several minutes with a trainer before heading to the locker room. He did not return to the field. Thomas, a fourth-round pick out of Oregon, has been unable to join the Chiefs for workouts since rookie minicamp because of an NFL rule that prohibited him from working out until his school graduates. Oregon is on the quarter system, so that didnt happen until this past weekend. The Chiefs also had four players in for tryouts on Tuesday: former Rutgers wide receiver Mark Harrison, Cal Poly wide receiver Cole Stanford, Utah State cornerback Quinton Byrd and Missouri cornerback Kip Edwards.

Xherdan Shaqiri is fit to return for Stoke against Bournemouth this weekend. A hamstring injury sidelined the Switzerland midfielder for Citys trip to West Ham before the international break, but he will be available along with Marko Arnautovic, who has served a ban.Mark Hughes does have injury concerns ahead of Saturday, though, with Geoff Cameron still sidelined and Glenn Whelan struggling with a hamstring problem during the Republic of Irelands win in Austria. As always with Glenn hes always going to give himself the best opportunity to play, Hughes told the club website. Six months half price Upgrade to Sky Sports to watch Man Utd v Arsenal on Saturday and get the first six months half price Its a concern because he hasnt really got much time to recover you would have thought - and with anybody else youd say they were definitely out. Hopefully as its him hell be okay but as it stands at present, hes a doubt. Glenn doesnt come off unless hes got a real issue and cant perform at the level he knows hes capable of. He did the right thing by coming off early and hopefully that will allow him to play at the weekend. West Ham 1-1 Stoke Shaq is fine but Geoff, unfortunately, wont be available as he has had a little bit of an issue with the knee that needed calming down. Were doing what we usually do with those type of injuries and trying to get him up to speed but weve been told that he just needs to rest a little longer.Upgrade to Sky Sports now to watch Man Utd v Arsenal this Saturday and get the first six months half price!

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Dwyane Wade missed the Heats previous seven games. The Knicks would have liked him to miss at least one more.Wade returned from a hamstring injury to score 27 points - 13 in the fourth quarter -and Miami beat New York 86-79 on Sunday night.For me, the fourth quarter is the only one where I can be selfish, Wade said.Chris Bosh added 20 for the Heat, including a crucial 3-pointer with 1:07 left as Miami held off a late New York rally.Carmelo Anthony also returned after a two-game absence because of back spasms to score 31 points for the Knicks.If I can go, I can go, Anthony said. That was my mindset. If I feel like I can play, I am going to give it a shot.Amare Stoudemire had 19 points and 12 rebounds for New York.At this point I think we just got to look ourselves in the mirror and see if were putting forth the effort that we need to win, Stoudemire said. We got to take it upon ourselves to see if were getting ourselves prepared for the game or having the right mentality to play a game at a high level.After trailing by as many as 16, the Knicks pulled to 65-63 on Tim Hardaway Jr.s layup with 9:22 left.Wade followed with a baseline jumper and scored 12 of Miamis next 15 points to help the Heat maintain the lead.I played 32 minutes, but it felt a lot more like 50, said Wade, who added five assists. It took a while. Early on I was just trying to make plays for my teammates.After the Knicks again pulled to 79-77 on Stoudemires tip-in with 1:23 left, Bosh hit his 3-pointer and New York never got closer.When the situation gets a little tense, a little tight, we need a shot and we run plays that we normally get good looks off of and it was just about having your feet set and shooting with confidence, Bosh said.The Heat opened a 10-2 lead and never relinquished the advantage.Miami took its biggest lead, 37-21, on Boshs layup with 4:48 remaining in the first half. The Heat had led 21-17 after the first quarter before beginning the second on a 16-4 run.Luol Deng had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Heat.

Anthony had 29 points, eight rebounds, five assists and two steals in that 102-92 victory. ... New York has lost four straight, six of its last seven and 13 of its last 15. ...

Hamilton was 43 points behind his Mercedes team-mate when the duo collided on the first lap in Barcelona and in a UBS Q&A session, which was streamed live on Facebook, the world champion has opened up on the mental affects it had on him.He has now recovered to within one point of Rosberg at the halfway stage of the season after winning back-to-back grands prix, and admits he has changed immensely through his nine years in Formula 1. When I was younger, if I had a bad race I was so hard on myself, he said. It was really negative. I remember some races I wouldnt leave my hotel room for three or four days, wouldnt speak to anyone, not being on my phone, I was just trying to get myself out of this dark place that Id be in. Somehow Id pop out of it and turn it into positive. I think thats what youve got to try and do. Youve got to look at the situation, even if its really negative, youve got to try and find the positives from it and leave the negatives behind. Try and learn from it. Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg were involved in a dramatic crash on the first lap of the Spanish Grand Prix which has seen both men retire from the race I look at Barcelona for example this year. It was a massive low for me. Theres things you wont know until I retire that I tell you that I experienced. I got up the next day and I went for a run, thats my process, through my run Im thinking about lots of different things.Its crazy to think that the 43-point deficit I had at the time, which seemed impossible - Im only human so those days I feel like it seemed impossible - youve just got to keep going, as painful as it can be, as hard as it can be.Is Hamilton playing mind games?You might get over it quickly, it might take longer but you just have to keep going. Its not how you fall, its how you get up from those experiences that you can become stronger. I feel Im stronger right now than I was at the beginning. I dont do everything perfect, I make mistakes. Theres days when I thought, the worlds coming to an end, Im never going to win this championship blah blah blah, I have those same things we all have. Somehow I try to find the positives in it. Look wheere I am now, Im one point behind in the championship.dddddddddddd Im even surprised. Im like, if I had given up at one point... it just shows you to never ever ever give up no matter what. Hamilton is third on the list of total wins, and total poles in Formula 1, while he can become the first Brit to claim more than three championships this year.But the 31-year-old says he is not motivated by any records and, despite the possibility of Ferrari making a move, he expects to see out another five years in the sport with Mercedes, with his current deal lasting until 2018.There isnt a final goal, he said. People have been asking me, do you want to go for Michael [Schumacher]s record?, for example. Honestly, I have zero desire in my heart to go for that. But if I happened to be fortunate enough get anywhere near there that would be amazing.I try and think to myself whats your five year plan? and try to set out to do it. Ive obviously signed for another three years with Mercedes - after that I see myself staying for another three or four years. While Im 37 Ill still be relatively young so I want to be challenged by something else. Marc Priestly thinks Lewis Hamiltons comments in the media may be affecting Nico Rosbergs performance on the track I want to be as great as I can be but I dont believe being as great as I can be is defined by someone elses record. Even if Im only here for another two years Im going to give it everything Ive got. Even if I was to stop now Id think Ive learned a lot, Ive had an amazing journey.Theres not one moment or one thing I would change because thats what got me where I am today regardless of whether you hit someones records.Watch the Hungarian GP live on Sky Sports F1.

A Kansas City, Missouri, station responded with plans to play the Grammy-winning track every hour from 7 a. SAN ANTONIO -- "Beat the Heat!" had a whole new meaning in a sweltering start to the NBA Finals. The San Antonio Spurs handled the conditions, and the team, and it sure helped when a suffering LeBron James couldnt make it to the finish. Tim Duncan had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and the Spurs beat the Heat 110-95 on Thursday night in Game 1 at steamy AT&T Center. With an air conditioning failure making it feel like a sauna and causing James to battle cramps that knocked him out of the decisive stretch, the Spurs pulled away to win the opener of the first finals rematch since 1998. "After I came out of the game, they kind of took off," James said. "And it was frustrating sitting out and not be able to help our team." Manu Ginobili had 16 points and 11 assists, Tony Parker added 19 points and eight assists and the Spurs -- 6 for 6 in NBA Finals Game 1s -- shot 59 per cent. "Just very proud of my team," Parker said. "We kept believing, kept pushing. We know its not easy." They host Game 2 on Sunday -- likely in cooler conditions. James finished with 25 points but played only 33 minutes, and Miami was outscored 36-17 in the fourth quarter. "It sucks not being out there for your team, especially at this point in the season," James said. Dwyane Wade had 19 points and Chris Bosh added 18, but the Heat wilted in temperatures that soared to 90 degrees in the second half. "It was tough on both teams," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "They were pretty dead. We tried to get guys in and out. ... It was really hot out there." James, who had cramping issues two years ago in the finals, had to ask for a break in the fourth quarter and was getting treatment during a 15-4 Spurs run that turned around the game. James came back in and made a basket that cut it to two points with about 4 minutes left, but couldnt even run back on defence, promptly putting his hand up and lingering at the baseline until help arrived to take him off for good. "I think it felt like a punch in the gut when you see your leader limping like that back to the bench," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Danny Green followed with 3-pointer to trigger what became a 16-3 run to end the game. "You could see the heat was getting to a lot of guys. If I played as many minutes as he did, Id probably be cramping up, too," said Green, who scored 11 of his 13 points in the final quarter. The ccrowd chanted "Beat the Heat! Beat the Heat!" late in the game, which was just what the fans themselves were trying to do.dddddddddddd The Spurs said an electrical failure for the power that runs the air conditioning system had occurred. They apologized for the inconvenience but also seemed to poke fun of it, playing songs with "hot" in the lyrics over the sound system. Fans were trying to cool themselves on the hot night, a reminder of what it was like in the old Boston Garden when the Celtics and Lakers got together. The Heat are the first team since those Celtics of 1984-87 to get to four straight finals. They are well-rested after a relatively easy roll through the Eastern Conference playoffs, a key to keeping Wade healthy entering the finals. James was the MVP of the series last year when the Heat rallied from five points down in the final half-minute of regulation to win Game 6 in overtime, then won a Game 7 that was close the whole way for their second straight championship. A rematch was widely anticipated and was close almost throughout. The Heat led 86-79 after Boshs four-point play with 9:38 remaining in the game, but it was all San Antonio from there, and Wade said there were problems even beyond James absence. "Obviously, tonight we wouldve loved to have him in there to finish the game, but weve got to finish the game better," Wade said. The Spurs ended up extending their NBA-record streak to eight straight home playoff wins by 15 or more points. Their roster is filled with international players, such as Parker and Ginobili, who both said they were used to playing without air conditioning overseas. Bosh, scoreless in Game 7 last year, scored Miamis first five points in the Heats 7-2 start. But Ginobili came off the bench firing, making consecutive 3-pointers for an 18-13 lead. Wade and James combined for six straight points before Ginobili made another 3, and Patty Mills added one to close the first-quarter scoring and give the Spurs a 26-20 advantage. The Spurs committed nine turnovers while managing only 20 points in the third quarter, and Miami led 78-74 heading to the fourth. Notes: James joined Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant as the only players with 4,000 points and 1,000 assists in the post-season. ... Ray Allen moved past Bryant and Derek Fisher into second place on the career list with 49 3-pointers in the NBA Finals. Robert Horry, a former Spurs forward, is the leader with 56.
