past two seasons that have been decided by Antworten

In the end, it didnt matter that Team Canada could only muster up a half point. Michael Gallup Jersey . What really mattered was that this event came off, that world-class golf came to Halifax and it was embraced by the fans. Mondays RBC Canada Cup was a success in every measurement except perhaps the scoreboard. Under sunny skies and with steamy temperatures, Mike Weir, Graham DeLaet, David Hearn and Adam Hadwin took on Matt Kuchar, Gary Woodland, Trevor Immelman and Manny Villegas at the Ashburn Golf Club. After four nine-hole, singles matches and two alternate-shot matches of the same length, Team World locked up a 5½ to a ½ victory. But never mind that, this wasnt about the score. This was about a fun outing in a part of Canada that doesnt see this kind of golf as often as does say Toronto or Montreal. Its also one of the few times that Canadas best got to team up. Weir, Hearn and DeLaet will see each other out on the PGA Tour but the chance to play together as a team was big for all three. Its the first time in your humble scribes memory that the top Canadian players teamed up on Canadian soil. And while this was an exhibition – DeLaet and Kuchar hit mulligans off the first tee in their singles match – there was still some pride on the line. "I still really want to win this," said Weir, with a big smile before teeing off. If nothing else, these guys are competitive to the end. So this was more than a skins game but less than a tournament. It was competitive but friendly, as it should be. And for sponsor RBC, it was a hit. The players teed off in a morning nine-hole pro-am which one bank official called "about the best thing weve done in a long time." The event is part of a week-long celebration of Canadian golf called GOLFest Nova Scotia and includes a Tour event where Villegas and Hadwin, along with a gaggle of talented Canadians will get down to more serious business. Kuchar took the celebration to heart, taking his family on a Nova Scotia vacation prior to the RBC Canada Cup shootout. He went to Cape Breton and played Cabot Links and visited Fox Harbr for another round. He got a good chuckle from guests at an evening dinner when he announced that his next stop was going to be P.E.I. Kuchar also delighted the crowds at the closing ceremonies when he praised the golf course and the fans, calling it a great, fun exhibition. And thats pretty much what it was – a great, fun exhibition with some marvelous golf. Just about perfect for Canada Day. Michael Gallup Cowboys Jersey . -- Rory McIlroy birdied his last two holes Thursday for a 7-under 63 to take the lead after one round of the Honda Classic. Jihad Ward Cowboys Jersey .C. -- Theyll remember the OT from the first Syracuse-Duke game -- and the Ts that decided Round 2. . The CFL unveiled its 2014 schedule Wednesday and the Redblacks will play their first-ever regular-season game in Winnipeg against the Blue Bombers on July 3.( - Maybe they should have stuck with the Bobcats moniker. The Charlotte Hornets have had as much success under their new mascot as the Washington Generals against the Harlem Globetrotters. Going back to the roots of the franchise hasnt paid off for the Hornets, and much like a Charles Dickens novel, there were great expectations heading into the 2014-15 season. Its been more like excretions at the quarter mark of the NBA season. The team made the playoffs a season ago with a 43-39 record and took advantage of a weak Eastern Conference to bring postseason basketball back to the Tar Heel State. The Hornets are hoping to sneak in again this season. Al Jefferson did all the heavy lifting to get Charlotte into the tournament with 21.8 points and 10.8 rebounds in 73 games. Jefferson got help this offseason in the form of all-purpose guard Lance Stephenson, who signed a three-year, $27 million deal this past summer. The Hornets have taken a step back instead of forward with Stephenson, but hes not solely to blame for a disappointing 4-15 start. But Stephenson was supposed to get the Hornets over the hump. Hes adjusting to new teammates and new surroundings, and maybe the comfort level just isnt there yet. He reportedly turned down a five-year, $44 million offer from the Indiana Pacers after helping them reach the Eastern Conference finals in back- to-back seasons. The Pacers are struggling and could use Stephensons services. Stephenson had an NBA-best five triple-doubles last season, and is averaging 10.1 points, 7.7 rebounds and 5.4 assists in his new digs. He is shooting just 37.9 percent and making only 17.5 percent from 3-point range. Stephenson came in believing he was still the star who helped the Pacers succeed and hasnt shown head coach Steve Clifford much. To be fair, one of the things thats made it more difficult for him is that he came here and people proclaimed him as the next superstar, Clifford said last week. Hes not a star. Hes a guy that has talent to become a star. To be a star in this league, you have to do it over years. Clifford has even benched Stephenson in crunch time. Its obvious Clifford is trying to light a fire under the one who blew into the ear of suuperstar LeBron James in last seasons playoffs. Tavon Austin Cowboys Jersey. Stephenson hasnt misbehaved in his short time with the Hornets, who are riding a 10-game losing streak that could reach 16 with New York, Boston, Memphis, Brooklyn, Cleveland and Phoenix on the docket. I thought at this point we would be in a much different place than we are, Clifford said recently. So did many others. It does take time for players and coaches to be fully integrated and the Hornets are learning that the hard way. Injuries to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Gary Neal havent aided the cause. Charlotte is in trouble if its relying on Brian Roberts, Cody Zeller and Bismack Biyombo. More help from Gerald Henderson is needed to support Jefferson, Kemba Walker and yes, Stephenson. We still have a lot of games left, and while people might not see it, were actually getting a lot better as a team, Walker said. Our chemistry is starting to come together and I think were getting better each and every day. The record doesnt show it and neither does the exhausting losing streak. However, four of those losses have come by five points or fewer. The Hornets lost to the Bulls, 102-95, on Wednesday, marking the 11th game this season that was decided by seven points or fewer. Charlotte has played 50 games over the past two seasons that have been decided by seven points or fewer. Those tough losses prove that the Hornets are competitive, but when it doesnt reflect in the standings fingers start to point and questions are asked. Clifford said some of the games the Hornets are losing are because of little mistakes that can be adjusted. Focus still remains the key to Charlottes success and Cliffords sanity. The Hornets are scoring 93.7 points per game and allowing 101.2 ppg. They are allowing opponents to post 43.7 rebounds against them and teams are making almost 40 percent from beyond the arc (36.8). There is still enough talent to get Charlotte back into the postseason. They just need more of a rhythm and a stronger rapport with each other. Itll get worse before it gets better. That quote, which is one of many classics from Dalton (Patrick Swayze) in the movie Road House, summarizes what the Hornets can expect in the future.
