ver Aaron Baddeley and Robert Garrigus going into the weekend from mary123's blog

Each week, The Reporters put their thumbs out to the good and the bad in the world of sports. Giubbotti Moncler Uomo Prezzi . This week they discuss Olympic hockey jerseys, Canadian soccer coach Jon Herdman, soccer phenom Jordan Spieth and Denver Broncos LB Danny Trevathan. Bruce Arthur, National Post: My thumb is down to the leaked version of team Canadas hockey jersey for the Sochi Olympics, If they are the jerseys, which since Getty Images pulled the picture of Jonathan Toews looking dubiously at the camera after a brief kerfuffle, they may be. Ok, so its just a jersey and its not as bad as Buffalos new third jersey - which looks like it has duct tape on the sleeve - and it might not be final, but the white band on just one arm, the dull corporate font, the fake laces, Cmon. Canadas Olympic hockey jersey should evoke our hockey heritage; they should evoke the excitement and hopes and dreams of a nation, in red and white. It should not, under any circumstances, look like a Petro-Canada station. Dave Naylor, TSN: My thumb is up to the Canadian Soccer Association for extending the contract of Womens National team coach John Herdman through the 2020 Olympics. The Canadian story in international soccer has included more than its fair share of frustration, but under Herdman, the womens program has soared to new heights, capped of course by a bronze medal at last summers Olympics. When whispers began recently that Herdman might return home to coach Team England, it seemed he might be too good to be true. Nice to see thats not the case. Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated: My thumb is up to the next rival to Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth. While two-time major champion Rory Mcilroy undergoes his existential and equipment crisis, the 20-year-old Spieth has emerged as the latest prodigy. At the urging of Phil Micklelson and others, Fred Couples made Spieth a captains pick for the Presidents Cup. Last year, Spieth couldnt get past the second round of Q-School. This year he beat Zach Johnson in a playoff at the John Deere Classic and had seven other top 10 finishes. With Saskatchewans Graham Delaet on the international team and Spieth on Team USA, the October event will be about more than boring old tales of Tiger. Dave Hodge, TSN: My thumb is down to Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan, and though I will try, there are no words that can add much to the pictures of his interception return for a touch…back.  A touch…down is what he thought he had after intercepting Joe Flaccos pass and returning it to the end…one-yard line.  Yes, a touchdown requires the player and the ball to cross the goal-line, and Trevathan forgot to take the ball that far. It travelled, on its own, far enough to record a touch…back.  Al Michaels said, "You would swear that everybody would learn by now".   Yes you would and Denver fans did....swear, even though the Broncos were ahead by 25 points, when Danny Trevathan apparently decided that a 25 point lead was big enough. Giacche Moncler Uomo . Its the second straight game Bell has scored in extra time for Kelowna, which beat the Brandon Wheat Kings 6-5 on Friday, and he now has four game-winning goals on the season. Piumini Moncler Uomo 2016 . -- Yogi Ferrell orchestrates pretty much everything in Indianas offence. . The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday.MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester City ended Evertons unbeaten run in the Premier League this season with a 3-1 win on Saturday as Alvaro Negredo and Sergio Aguero scored superb goals in an entertaining game featuring plenty of chances. City bounced back from two consecutive losses in all competitions to move two points behind league leader Arsenal, which has a game in hand. Romelu Lukaku gave the visitors the lead but Negredo quickly cancelled out the Belgian strikers opener after a flowing collective move before Aguero handed City the advantage just before halftime. Aguero then added the third from the spot in the 69th minute after Tim Howard tipped his penalty onto the post but the ball bounced in off the American goalkeeper. Everton, which was the only team to remain unbeaten before the game, matched Citys pace early in the game but quickly faded after the interval. Criticized for his recent mistakes both with his club and England, goalkeeper Joe Hart kept his place in the starting lineup even though City manager Manuel Pellegrini made several changes to his side, with Pablo Zabaleta, Joleon Lescott, Aleksandar Kolarov, David Silva, James Milner and Alvaro Negredo coming in. Everton got off to a strong start and looked dangerous immediately as Lukaku threatened Citys defence at the conclusion of his teams first move. Fresh from consecutive losses against Aston Villa and Bayern Munich, City had its first real opportunity in the seventh minute after a soft free kick was given against Phil Jagielka for a foul on Sergio Aguero, but Aleksandar Kolarovs curled shot went inches wide. Kolarov missed the target agaiin a few minutes later when he sent his header from a corner over the bar before Hart diverted a fine effort from Lukaku in the 15th minute. Piumini Moncler Uomo Scontati. Lukau then made the most of Citys poor defending as he beat the offside trap to open the scoring after skipping past Lescott and sliding the ball under Hart. But the Everton fans celebrations were short-lived, with City levelling the score in the next minute when Negredo scored a goal similar to Lukakus from Yaya Toures excellent through pass. The game continued in a fast pace with both teams combining well from end to end. City had another great chance in the 26th minute when Fernandinho and Silva managed to open some space for Aguero in front of goal, only for the striker to bend the ball wide at the far post. Aguero could again have given City the lead after Negredo opened up the Toffees defence but completely missed the ball in the 39th. The Argentine player finally made amends for all his wasted chances when he fired in David Silvas pass past Howard from a tight angle in the 45th minute. City had the upper hand early in the second half but suffered a blow when Kolarov, pushed in the back by Steven Naismith, collided with teammate Matija Nastasic and had to leave the pitch with his face bloodied. He was replaced by Gael Clichy, while Naismith escaped any punishment. City however kept controlling the game and was awarded a penalty in the 69th minute after Zabaleta was fouled by Seamus Coleman in the area. After being booked for protesting, Howard almost denied Agueros shot but the ball hit the post and bounced off him before ending in the net. Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
