Olympic hero Maddie Rooney on inspiring young athletes, meeting celebrities: ‘It hasn’t hit me yet’

A month ago, meeting Ellen and getting a standing ovation at an NHL outdoor game weren’t on her mind, either. Now they’re the new normal for Maddie Rooney. So are the fans who ask for selfies with her, the pro athletes who laud her achievements and the young players who tell her she has become their inspiration — even if Rooney still can’t fathom it.

“I don’t see myself as that yet. It hasn’t hit me, really,” she says. “But it would be awesome if I could be as nice to someone as the older players were to me when I was younger.”

But you are an inspiration. But you beat Canada. You won gold.

Bridges’ defense isn’t just centered around creating events. He has quick feet and can change directions well with his hips, allowing him to mirror a ball-handler. He also fights through screens off the ball while possessing the length to still contest shots if he gets briefly caught on them. He understands rotations and communication as well, a product of playing in a Villanova system that takes plenty of chances and requires help rotations with regularity.

If nothing else, Bridges should earn a rotation spot on an NBA team as a multi-positional defender. His path to being a starter hinges on his jump shot.

Whie Walton said he expects Ball will travel with the Lakers on an upcoming five-game, 11-day road trip beginning Friday against the Bulls, he doesn’t want to rush the rookie guard back into action.

“Whether he plays or not [on the trip], that all depends on the knee,” Walton said. “We are not going to rush him back from a sore knee. Once that gets better, we will get him back on the court.”

Tyler Ennis has made six starts at the point this year in Ball’s absence. Backup Alex Caruso had nine points, eight assists and four rebounds in the win against the Knicks, but Walton seemed to be leaning against giving him a start.

“He’d be an option” but “I don’t think I’ll try it,” Walton said (via Lakers beat writer Ryan Ward.

Ball is averaging 10.2 points, 7.1 assists, 7.1 rebounds in his rookie campaign.packers_156

LeBron James not consulted on Kyrie Irving trade, report says

LeBron James has been rumored to be the de facto general manager of the Cavaliers since he returned to the organization in 2013, however, since GM David Griffin was fired this past summer, James’ say in personnel decisions has gone completely by the wayside.
Men's Glen Rice Swingman Black Adidas Jersey: NBA Miami Heat #41 Finals Hardwood Classic Nights
According to The Athletic, James had no say in the Kyrie Irving trade. It was previously reported James did not want the team to trade Womens Virgil Green Jersey Irving at all, but Tuesday’s new report claims he had no say in where Irving went or who the Cavaliers received in return.

Myles Turner Elite Jersey Although he never matched his early-career production after the 2015 trade to the Seahawks — in part because of a serious patellar tendon injury that season — Graham remains a major weapon in the red zone. His 10 touchdown receptions (on only 95 targets) in 2017 were tied for second in the league. Someone will see major value there.

A preseason trade from the Jets to Seattle, if nothing else, gave Richardson tape in both the 4-3 and 3-4 defenses. The Seahawks, who gave up a second-round pick and receiver Jermaine Kearse to get Richardson, might want him as a younger replacement for Michael Bennett. Richardson made a few splashy plays in Seattle, but he probably wasn’t dominant enough to spark a frenzied bidding war.

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began kneeling during the anthem during the 2016 season. He and other players have said they have knelt to raise awareness about racial injustice and police brutality.
Chuck Klein Elite Jersey
In his statement to the Sun-Sentinel, Ross said he understands players care about military and law enforcement personnel.

I’ve seen the same players who are fighting for social justice engaging positively with law enforcement and the military, Ross said. I care passionately that the message of social justice resonates far and wide, and I will continue to support and fund efforts for those who fight for equality for all.

The NFL has proposed partnering with players to effect social justice change with a plan that would contribute nearly $100 million to causes considered important to African-American communities. The hope is that the league’s commitment would create an environment in which players would no longer want to protest. The plan, however, has met resistance from some players, including Michael Thomas and Stills.

Wade says if anyone can return from a hip injury and get back to All-Star MVP-candidate form, it’s Thomas.

Isaiah Thomas isn’t sure what free agency holds for him this summer but said Thursday that his r��sum�� speaks for itself and that if given the opportunity he can do again what he did in Boston.
Men's Majestic Pittsburgh Pirates #5 Josh Harrison Replica Camo Alternate Cool Base MLB Jersey
And then Thomas backed it up with his best game of the season, scoring a game-high 29 points as the Los Angeles Lakers won their fourth straight game by crushing the Miami Heat, 131-113.

Guard, however, needs some major help. Joe Berger is a 35-year-old free agent leaning toward retirement. Nick Easton, a restricted free agent, had a rough season before fracturing his right ankle in December. Jeremiah Sirles, also restricted, is more of a backup outside. Second-year players Danny Isidora and Aviante Collins still need to be developed as young reserves inside. The team did add former Eagles practice squad player Josh Andrews, but it needs to think about getting two new starters a la Reiff and Remmers.

Elite Kids Ronald Leary Jersey The best free-agent guard, Andrew Norwell, Daniel Murphy Womens Jersey will command around $12 million per season. It would be a tight squeeze to get him and Cousins, but that combination would truly signal the Vikings are all in for 2018. Prudence would say, however, with Diggs, Danielle Hunter and Eric Kendricks among the 2015 draftees becoming free agents in 2019, it would be better to go for one to two bargains.

Unbelievable year last year, him being a competitor and a warrior, he made his injury worse, Wade said. Instead of putting his stock up there, feeling injury and said I’m done, let me get ready for the next season so I can get a max deal, he kept trying to fight and fight and fight for the city that he was playing for. So it’s a tough situation man, but one thing I know about him, you don’t become a household name at 5-foot whatever he is without having grit, without having toughness, without knowing that you can overcome anything. I definitely know that he can overcome anything that he’s dealing with because he wouldn’t be here today, we wouldn’t be talking about him if he couldn’t.

High-powered negotiations are taking place this week and weekend in Indy for the next contracts of Cousins and Brees, just as they are for other top pending free agents like Pittsburgh’s Le’Veon Bell, Dallas’ DeMarcus Lawrence and Minnesota’s Case Keenum.

Carroll expressed optimism on Sherman’s recovery after seeing him within the past week.

Very positive, Carroll said. He’s had a seemingly great process up until now. It’s a bit of a setback for a couple of weeks now because he is in the boot on the other foot, but he is not slowing down. He’s working like crazy. He’s having a fantastic offseason, his mentality is good. He’s competing like crazy right now.”
Womens Trey Hopkins Jersey Men's Nike Game Dalvin Cook Minnesota Vikings Purple Jersey: NFL #33 Home
Limited Michael Matheson Jersey Carroll had no new information on the health of strong safety Kam Chancellor, defensive end Cliff Avril or defensive tackle Malik McDowell. Chancellor and Avril suffered career-threatening neck injuries last season; McDowell didn’t play as a rookie after suffering what the team called a severe concussion in a summer ATV accident.

Those guys are still in process and we are waiting for the word where they have their stations along the way where they check in with the docs and all that, Carroll said of Chancellor and Avril. Really holding out hope that things work out.”

We think he can, Zimmer said. It’s just kind of guessing. Is he the guy when he was at Houston or the Rams, or is he the guy who played for us? Is it because he had a good team around him? Bradford, his record wasn’t great; is it because he didn’t have a good team around him? Did he play with Fran Tarkenton Womens Jersey a good defense? All those things enter into it. All those factor into it. At the end of the day, it’s a guess and a hunch.

After taking a while to get going following a year off in retirement, Lynch was the Raiders’ best offensive player in the second half of last season. He rushed for 625 yards and averaged 4.6 yards per carry with five rushing touchdowns in Oakland’s final eight games. He rushed for 266 yards, averaged 3.7 yards per carry and scored two touchdowns in the first seven games before serving a one-game suspension for making contact with an official.

One of the reasons I’m excited to be with the Raiders is to join forces with Marshawn Lynch, new coach Jon Gruden said Wednesday. Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports
Lynch turns 32 on April 22, and cutting him would save the Raiders more than $5.9 million against the cap. Oakland currently has about $19.5 million in cap room, per ESPN Stats & Information.

And if Lynch does return, Gruden would also like to see a healthy Jamize Olawale, who missed four games last season, at fullback to complement Lynch.

I like Jamize, Gruden said. I mean, he didn’t play much last year. He had some injuries. I think that hurt the offense as well. He gives the offense some deception because he can run. He’s a fullback with speed.

The 5 greatest Super Bowl moments that history forgot

Warner completed a pair of passes to get the Cardinals to their own 43-yard line, but LaMarr Woodley forced a fumble that sealed Pittsburgh’s win. And now the future Hall of Famer Fitzgerald might retire without a Super Bowl win, while his own moment of glory is overshadowed — a true crime.

Super Bowl XLIX was the game that legally changed Malcolm Butler’s name into Super Bowl Hero Malcolm Butler.

Before Butler’s interception at the goal line, Kearse caught this 33-yard pass from Russell Wilson with 1:14 left, somehow maintaining concentration and displaying unbelievable hands:

Kraft also said Wickersham’s story was “a total fabrication and fiction. I am telling you, it’s fiction.” He also shot down reports of trading Belichick, too. Despite the numerous reports, Kraft praised the five-time Super Bowl-winning head coach.

“When you’re lucky enough to have someone exceptional, you let them do their job and you get out of the way.”

But keeping Brady and Garoppolo, according to Kraft, would have been difficult. He said New England would have had to place a franchise tag on Garoppolo to keep him for another season.

This year, the show that comes on after either the Eagles or Patriots win is This Is Us, NBC’s sophomore smash hit about a family living and learning with each throughout multiple generations.

Now none of what follows should be construed as me having any sort of vendetta against This Is Us, but this is a terrible idea. The show itself is a perfectly serviceable network drama with various strengths, weaknesses, and great performances. But that this particular episode is the one they’re airing after the Super Bowl seems like poor decision making.

Despite Brady’s claims that his TB12 program can keep him playing into his 40s like he was still young, he hasn’t been as great as he was in his 30s. Naturally, Belichick saw the need to groom a new quarterback — Jimmy Garoppolo — as Brady’s eventual replacement.

Dion Lewis’ 5 best non-Patriots fits in NFL free agency

The Buccaneers released Doug Martin, and coach Dirk Koetter is growing a little tired of a skill-specific committee against which it’s easier to decipher run or pass based on who’s in the backfield. Lewis can be effective playing off Jameis Winston throwing downfield. The salary cap isn’t an issue, either, with more than $71 million available to spend.

With Michael Crabtree on the outs, new coach Jon Gruden should look at Landry as a reliable possession type for Derek Carr. The QB and Landry would be a perfect fit in the short passing game. With Seth Roberts, Oakland has had a blip in the slot. With Landry, it can blast off at the position.

The brightest spot in the Bears’ injury-riddled receiving corps last season was slot man Kendall Wright. But Wright is an older and lesser free agent than Landry in 2018. Mitchell Trubisky needs a secure go-to guy in his first season under Matt Nagy and Mark Helfrich.

A deep threat is also needed, so the Rams’ Sammy Watkins and the Seahawks’ Paul Richardson also are bound to be on Chicago’s free-agency radar. Landry is a more sound investment than both to pay immediate dividends in the intermediate passing game with a second-year QB.

In perhaps the biggest blow of all, the men’s hockey team didn’t even make it to the final courtesy of a stunning 4-3 loss to Germany on Friday night in the semifinals. For a nation already in despair over no men’s or women’s curling medals and the women’s hockey team losing to the rival Americans in a shootout in the gold-medal game, this one won’t be easy to swallow as Canada’s bid to win three consecutive Olympic golds fell horribly short.

Through 14 days, 10 of Canada’s best-ever 27 medals are gold.

Losing to Germany guaranteed none will be in hockey.
Elite Youth Asdrubal Cabrera Jersey
Elite Kids Germain Ifedi Jersey They came out ready to play, Canada forward Rob Klinkhammer said. We didn’t. They were the better team.

Without NHL stars Sidney Crosby and Drew Doughty, elite goaltender Carey Price — and no Stanley Cup-winning coach Mike Babcock, either — Canada was skated out of the building by coach Marco Sturm’s team that now faces B.J. Goodson Jersey an even stiffer test in the favored Russians in Sunday’s final.

After Josh McDaniels debacle, could the Colts circle back to Baylor’s Matt Rhule? ESPN’s Adam Schefter thinks so.

Baylor head coach Matt Rhule is reportedly still being considered for the Indianapolis Colts’ head coaching job. This comes after Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels turned down the job on Tuesday. Rhule was interviewed by the Colts last month, but eventually turned the offer down. According to Adam Schefter, the Colts may be going back to Rhule after he’s finished with National Signing Day on Wednesday.
Men's Phil Jackson Authentic Royal Blue Adidas Jersey: NBA New York Knicks #18 Throwback
The Colts fired coach Chuck Pagano after the regular season. We’ll see how Indy will do with Rhule in the second go-round.

OK Garoppolo we get it, you’re living the absolute dream right now. Of course, the 49ers are paying him for what they believe he’ll do in the future. But for now, Garoppolo has lived one hell of a charmed NFL life, as Adam Stites pointed out:
Limited Youth Desmond King Jersey
It’s basically the perfect start to an NFL career.

Players have about four or five years to prove they’re worth an extension, but Garoppolo got to spend most of those seasons behind Tom Brady and reaped the rewards in experience and Super Bowl rings. Then, when he finally got his chance to play, he thrived and put together a perfect 7-0 record as a starter 锟斤拷 with five of those wins with the 49ers.

Enjoy this Garoppolo, it doesn’t get better than this.

The bigger question related to either coach’s success is whether they’ll try to implement the rigid methods that have been so important to New England’s dynasty. The Patriot Way appears to be as translatable to the pros as NCAA success, and its failure to catch on in Denver, New York, Chicago, and Cleveland have led to short, uneventful tenures for former Pats assistants.

Elite Youth Tyler Eifert Jersey We were heartbroken to hear the news of Edwin Jackson’s passing. Edwin was loved by Womens Zack Kassian Jersey all in the Colts organization. We admired his outgoing personality, competitive spirit and hard-working mentality. He was well-respected among all with whom he crossed paths, and he will be greatly missed in our locker room and throughout our entire organization. We also understand that another person lost his life in the accident, only adding to our sorrow on this day. We are shocked and saddened by this tragedy, and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of both men during this difficult time.

How Wofford’s Fletcher Magee went from two-handed shots to one of college basketball’s best shooters

With over six seconds remaining in Wofford’s then-tied matchup at Georgia Tech on Dec. 6, junior Fletcher Magee jumped in front of a pass intended for his teammate Storm Murphy. A few dribbles with his left hand, followed by a crossover. Finally, a step-back three-pointer that sunk through the net.
Youth Replica Majestic Johnny Pesky Green Jersey - #6 MLB Boston Red Sox Salute To Service
He (Bufton) came in and told me, ‘You’re a decent athlete, but if you want to play in college and after it, you’re going to have to be an amazing shooter,’ Magee said.

Initially, he runs misdirection along the baseline before receiving the ball from the wing, as the forward delivers a fake screen. Once Magee obtains an inch of space, he’ll quickly rotate behind the center’s screen and pull-up. Young deemed him and Cochran as the best runaway shooters he has ever coached.

Guys that can run away from the basket, catch the ball and turn 锟斤拷 essentially while in the air, Young said. Gets his shoulders squared and gets himself turned to the basket. It’s a beautiful shot. There aren’t many that can do that. It takes a great deal of balance and lower-body stability.

Magee added that he must keep opponents off balance, with teams constantly switching on ball screens to stick with him.

You look at how they’re gonna guard you and how you’re gonna cut differently, if you’re gonna be physical or quick, he said.

Thanks to the win, the United States now leads 锟斤拷 at least for now 锟斤拷 Group B with a total of four points. Team USA nabbed three Carl Davis Authentic Jersey points due to its regulation win on Friday morning.

The United States got the scoring started seven minutes into the opening frame. Donato put Team USA up 1-0 on an early power play after linemate Troy Terry placed a perfect drop pass off a rush. Donato followed up the USA push and was in the perfect place for Terry’s pass as he fired the puck past Slovakia goaltender Jan Laco:

The lead didn’t last long for the Americans, however, as the Slovakians scored 25 seconds later. An impossible angle goal was made possible by a deflection off Andrej Kudrna’s stick in front. Zapolski was unable to control the puck as it slipped through his arm before he could close down the net.

Limited Mens Daeshon Hall Jersey While the second period was scoreless, the United States looked to gain its legs a bit despite getting the wind taken out of its sails early.

Now doubt them Cowboys!

What a week for the Cowboys. Ezekiel Elliott finally got tackled by the judicial system and began his six-game suspension. Jerry Jones and Atlanta’s Arthur Blank, on opposite sides of an ownership feud regarding Roger Goodell’s contract, avoided each other before the game. And then the Cowboys had to face the Falcons.

Dallas took a quick 7-0 lead on a Dak Prescott touchdown run following a Xavier Woods interception. From there, it was a disaster all the way to the final gun for the Cowboys in a 27-7 loss that dropped them to 5-4, three games south of the Eagles, who they meet next Sunday night in Arlington, Texas.

Last month, the Cowboys were 2-3 after a loss to the Packers and had equaled their 2016 loss total a mere five weeks into the new season.

Then came a bye week, after which they’ve won three consecutive games. What’s eye-opening about the state of the 5-3 Cowboys is what Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali told the Dallas Morning News after Dallas defeated the Chiefs last week.

“I think that’s the best team in the league,” Hali said. “Credit to the team. They played really well and that’s a really good team … 13 wins last year.”

Considering the Eagles have the best record in the NFL at 8-1 and lead the NFC East, those were some strong words from Hali.

Did you realize the Dolphins are 13-4 in their past 17 regular season games? Adam Gase knows what he’s doing. Losing Jay Cutler won’t hurt, given Matt Moore’s ability to step in and run the offense.

31. Ndamukong Suh, defensive tackle, Dolphins (24): Despite concerns the mercurial star might become the next Albert Haynesworth and coast after getting a six-year, $114 million contract, Suh was steady and productive for Miami last season with six sacks and 16 starts. But he’s still as volatile as ever, which means you never known when he’s going to decide to stomp on an opponent’s leg (or other body part).

There was no more upsetting story to come out of last Sunday’s games than what occurred with the Steelers and their offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva in that botched pregame national anthem maneuver in Chicago.

The most disappointing element was not Steelers coach Mike Tomlin keeping his players in the locker room during the anthem, it was the embarrassing fallout from Villanueva, a former Army Ranger who toured several times in Afghanistan, standing alone outside the tunnel in Chicago with his hand over his heart — then having to explain himself afterward.

That Villanueva was left feeling guilty about letting his teammates down was preposterous. You can make a pretty sound argument that he’s done more for his country than every player not just on his team but every NFL team combined.

We haven’t talked about the Ravens much this season, mostly because they have been mired in mediocrity.

Since that 2014 season, during which the Ravens went 10-6, they have gone 5-11 and 8-8 and have curiously fallen off the NFL playoff radar. That could change in the next six weeks, because the Ravens’ remaining schedule is among the easiest in the league.
Youth Crockett Gillmore Limited White Nike Jersey: NFL Baltimore Ravens #80 Road Vapor Untouchable
The Ravens’ final six opponents have a 25-35 record (.416). They play four of their last six games at home and face just two more teams with winning records (the Lions, who are 6-4, and the Steelers, who are 8-2).

Elite Mens Matt Forte Jersey If the Jaguars can remain consistent on offense, their defense is the stingiest in the league, allowing an average of 15.7 points per game, sure looks like playoff material.

When we last left the Jags before last week’s bye, they were sacking Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett 10 times. They have 33 sacks through seven games, which has them on pace for 75, which would break the NFL record of 72 set by the 1984 Bears.

One can now accurately predict the repetitive nonsense we’ll hear after most every play. Sunday against the Rams, Philadelphia QB Carson Wentz threw a bad pass, prompting FOX’s Joe Buck to the clich锟斤拷d and unnecessary, Carson Wentz would love to have that one back.

Troy Aikman followed with the useless filler observation that we’ll now see what the Eagles dial up on their next play.
