a tough task, Jets head coach Claude Noel acknowledged. now become reliant on others. the Jets closed out their road trip so meekly, generating so few scoring chances, was startling. Of course, they were playing yet another dreaded back to back game, a lament if we every heard one for this bunch, now 1 11 in that scenario. If they only done as well as Washington has in that department (5 7 1) guess where they be? don know if we were tired, Tim Stapleton, the only goal scorer for Winnipeg, said. don think there really any excuses. mind excuses. How about a simple explanation for how a makeshift fourth line comprised of two American League call ups Spencer Machacek and Ben Maxwell, along with Stapleton can look so much better than what supposed to be one of Winnipeg top lines? Evander Kane (goal less in five games), Kyle Wellwood (seven) and Alex Burmistrov (10) haven exactly been singing harmony. Kane, though, deflected the theory his unit has been sadder than a country song. the last three games we had some good scoring opportunities, he began. not (Saturday), but in the last two. Personally, I had some good scoring opportunities. They just haven gone to the net. did the Jets on this night. Nobody got anywhere near Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne, who barely broke a sweat. emotionally (the energy) wasn as high, Kane said. physically I felt good. Wasn tired out there at all. why generate so little. Quality shots? In the nearby saloons, maybe not on the Nashville goal. The Preds had enough in the first period alone to win this one. But goalie Ondrej Pavelec again gave his team a chance. was incredible, is how Tanner Glass put it. was our best player. the second straight night, it took desperation for the Jets to get going, Stapleton goal with seven minutes left igniting some passion. But there would be no miracle ending the way there was in Washington, Friday. The Jets didn deserve one. we had got one a little bit earlier it might have energized us, Noel said. it not like we deserved to get one earlier. the coach should have played his hottest line a little more. Stapleton, Machacek and Maxwell finished the three game road trip with a combined 13 points 13 more than Kane and Co. Noel finally got them nine minutes of ice time, including a shift in the final minute, the Jets down by just one. Noel says he tried to get them more but kept running into whistles, which would have allowed the Preds to get matchups he didn want. don think it need more ice time, Stapleton said. no need to complain about that. Jets top line couldn get anything going, either. So I guess Nashville defensive boogie is just that good. 308497 015 Air Jordan IV 4 Retro Isaiah Doernbecher DB Charty ,378037 107 Air Jordan 11 Retro Concord 2011 308497 102 Nike Air Jordan 4 IV Retro Pure Money White Metallic Silver 656503 501 Air Jordan Future Dark Concord Dark Concord White 646701 001 Kobe 9 EM Air Jordan Spizike New York Knicks Blue 136064 120 Jordan 3 Fire Red Retro 2013 Air Jordan 5 Retro Black Varsity Red Metallic Silver 308308 161 Nike Air Jordan 2 Iiretro White Varsity Red Black 130207 101 Air Jordan 1 94 Retro White Black Red It was the first time ever a cricketer from Kerala was playing an international on home soil, and as the fourth one dayer between India and England at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi started to unravel, the mood among some 60,000 people in the bleachers swung from elation to dread and back. It reflected a yearning that only a short while ago these people hadn't realised they possessed, one awakened by young Sreesanth and then answered like a prayer. In a state where till a few years ago, the fax machine was revered as leading edge technology and where, thanks to a perverted proletarian ethos, only a miniscule percentage of the population condescended to go to god forbid work, football and athletics had provided an escape from a dreary existence. In the continuously shifting lines of scrimmage that constituted football at its fast and furious best, and in the elliptical style of play patented in the state, Kerala's youth was to find both sustenance and a semblance of class conflict. In contrast, in a clear instance of reverse snobbery, common people in Kerala considered a career in cricket for their children as worse than juvenile delinquency. This was because the game was for close to 75 years patronised by the better off classes. The silver spoon amateur was someone the man in the street couldn't relate to, and the rough, rebellious professional of the pioneering years was the sort people crossed the street to avoid. All that is now in the past. As we approach Sreesanth's home in suburban Kochi, there are clusters of impromptu matches being played on the cleared fringes of paddy fields or on land reclaimed from the backwater. Like many other things, the backwater too, once such an ubiquitous part of this city, is fast disappearing, only infrequently reminding one of its presence when with, say, changing light, it flashes at the corner of the eye as if out there a match has been struck. I am thoroughly enjoying the attention. I couldn't have asked for better. The limelight is what I have always sought," Sreesanth says when you ask whether his new found celebrity status has been a distraction. Kerala's only cricketer to have represented India since Tinu Yohannan faded away after a promising start, Sreesanth has been mobbed by college girls, besieged by autograph hunters, and has had a road near his home and a colony named after him. His answers are fresh and forthright, with no sign of the clichs of humility or the angst worthy of a Danish prince that a previous generation of Kerala's sporting heroes, including some Olympic athletes, wore on their sleeves. Since his ODI debut in October 2005, Sreesanth has scarcely had a rest, having played four back to back series, including two Tests against the touring England side. A good performance in Pakistan and a six for in the final ODI against England ensure that he remains in the reckoning as Greg Chappell and Rahul Dravid develop and fine tune a battery of medium pacers for next year's World Cup. For now, he is enjoying the break, though every morning he continues to run, lift weights, and mentally prepare himself for the tour of the West Indies. Today, after his workout he went out for a drive in his new Honda City Civic Coupe DX, along one of the newly nickelled roads ringing the town. Kochi is now a city in overdrive, pulsing with energy and ambition, and as the elegant bypasses connecting the various suburbs indicate, a home to its new denizens but also a place on the way to somewhere else. Sreesanth meets us in the living room of his home, freshly shaved and showered and trailing a spicy cologne. Occupying pride of place on the living room mantle, along with the trophies and medallions, is a copy of a certificate formally proclaiming him a member of the Ernakulam Cricket Club (ECC), from way back in 1996. "It all started there, where I developed my love for the game and acquired the basic skills," he says. "But the MRF pace academy [in Chennai] is what made me complete the transformation into a full fledged professional." Shivkumar, the current president of the ECC and a former state level wicketkeeper, was Sreesanth's mentor the young man deferentially refers to him as "Sir" who saw to it that his ward's years of knocking about in the game's lesser precincts seasoned him for the ultimate test. "He always put in the hard yards," Shivkumar says. "He never missed practice or a game. People used to talk about him even then, how he would one day go places. He was just so competitive. And he had basic qualities in him that no one can coach." Shivkumar remembers the adolescent Sreesanth as a congenital optimist loose limbed, with his chin in the air and an up on his toes stride. And so obsessed with the game that he would carry a cricket ball with him everywhere as though he would hatch it in the classroom, in the bus, and as his elder brother Dibusanth vouches, to bed as well. Dibusanth, who now functions as Sreesanth's ad hoc manager, played at university level and during his brother's formative years was the perfect foil who helped round the hard edges of the latter's obsessive drive. Equipped with the ideal emotional thermostat for this complex and maddening game always engaged but never upset Dibusanth was the sleek, coursing hound to Sreesanth's taut, high strung terrier. He speaks of how Sreesanth preferred entering a house by running through the wall rather than taking the time to open the door, so to speak. "It could have easily led to burnout, to major injury even," Shivkumar recalls. "But Sreesanth became aware of it himself and embarked on the necessary course correction." Perhaps a remnant of those years is Sreesanth's little soliloquy captured on TV these days as he walks to his mark on the field. Sreesanth explains it thus: "People think I am high strung, that I drain myself emotionally in every game. Of course, I keep saying things to calm myself and perk myself up, but I don't see it or feel it as draining at all. In fact, it's been a habit with me for a long time, this constant revving up, something like brushing my teeth." For someone who models himself on Allan Donald apart, of course, from Dennis Lillee, who coached him at MRF it is no surprise that Sreesanth considers aggression his main asset. He also talks about some new arrows in his quiver: the ability to perform credibly in his second and third spells (which Pakistan captain Inzamam ul Haq recently noted) and when the pressure mounts, to reach down and engage a gear few suspect he possesses. Sreesanth trusts his strengths like money in the bank but he is also, like his peers in today's PlayStation generation, very practical. "I am a dreamer, but I am also realistic. There can be injuries, there can be an extended run of bad form. Cricket is so much a mind game, but you also have to listen to your body. When it says no,' you have to acknowledge it." The historian Ramachandra Guha once tried to profile the well known Kerala player Balan Pandit: "I learnt that he captained Kerala, yet usually missed one or two matches in the season. This was enough for me to give him a face, deportment, and an off field occupation. He was slim and freshly shaven, and worked as a manager of a plantation somewhere in the Wynaad hills. He drove down to the plains in a Willys Jeep, wearing a handsome blue blazer over his cricketing whites." This picture may well have been true of the likes of Pandit or the flamboyant Jayantilal Mahendra but it was far less romantic where the journeymen were concerned: from the likes of Ravi Achan and Suri Gopalakrishna to K Jayaraman and KN Ananthapadmanabhan, whose tough, honest, plain workaday game kept cricket's low but steady flame burning in the state for over 50 years. Till not so long ago, in the Ranji Trophy, Kerala were easy meat for the big three of south Indian cricket Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Hyderabad till a rejuvenated team made it to the knockout stage in 1994. Kerala became South Zone champions in 1996 and since then have never really looked back. Promoted briefly to the Elite Group in the Ranji league, the state has now made it to a point where strong teams can ignore them only at their own peril. It was in Thalassery that cricket was first played in Kerala, during the Raj, and it was there that Colin Cowdrey, the son of a local planter, practised his earliest cover drives, but it is Tripunithura, close to Kochi, which became the game's cradle. Tripunithura represents authentic continuity in a community that prizes it. Inside the old Fort area next to the Puja Cricket Ground before they donned India colours, Gundappa Viswanath and Krishnamachari Srikkanth among others were fixtures in the annual Puja Cup tournament are madhoms, former durbars of the princes. Each is big enough for a couple of hundred bodyguards, with room left over for any swordplay that might break out. Adorning the walls are framed photos of locally famous cricketers of the fifties and sixties, sepia encroaching on their dignified demeanours, faces fringed by thick beards or shaggy whiskers and a shiver of Old Testament fortitude, Ahabs in pursuit of some landlocked whale: stoic, proud, self reliant, long suffering. We travelled the length and breadth of the state to remote tournament sites by third class rail, sometimes without tickets, stayed in cheap lodges or sathrams [free dorms], ate common meals. What drove us? Love for the game, what else?" says Krishna Varma, a scion of the erstwhile Travancore Cochin royal family, who played Under 19 cricket for Kerala in the early eighties and was a rising star before his knees prematurely betrayed him. A few years ago Varma, who in his prime captained the likes of Kiran More and Ajay Jadeja for the now defunct East West Airlines team, walked 17km from his home to the Sacred Heart College in Kochi. Only the Jesuit fathers were willing to entertain his plans for a fledgling cricket academy; neither the unheralded bandh nor the mid day heat was going to be a deterrent for Varma. The Sacred Heart's credo is "Never forget the road you came down," a reminder of the Jesuits' troubles when, following the Dutch conquest of Cochin in 1663, most places of worship were turned into warehouses. This denomination's chapel was spared, the puritanical streak of the Calvinists reined in by the obvious beauty of the shrine's stained glass and the lifelike caryatids watching over the quaint confessional boxes. Varma's academy now trains more than a hundred youngsters, and in deference to the presiding institution's wishes and his own inclination, he admits those who have genuine passion for the game even if they can't afford to pay the academy's nominal fees. He points out that the majority of those flocking to his school are from the rural areas, from little known towns boys intent on overcoming obscurity and making a fortune. Encouraging signs, at last. As the rare star in Kerala's firmament, Sreesanth himself is aware of the distance cricket in the state has travelled and of how much further it has to go before it can claim to have truly and finally arrived. The designer streaks in his coif and the Nike contract that Percept D' Mark is delivering to his doorstep are not the only things that are happening in his life following his newly acquired fame. There is already a sense of the need to give something back: he has funded a few charities, donated half of the substantial sum that the Kerala Cricket Association paid him to the ECC, and has become a brand ambassador for an NGO that is fighting AIDS. Trust Sreesanth's father, Santhakumaran, a former manager at LIC, to provide some insurance against potential bad karma: "Individual success is fine, but there's always more than just you." 308497 015 Air Jordan IV 4 Retro Isaiah Doernbecher DB Charty,Lebron basketball shoes are very popular among fans and players alike.

Garsden saved well from Stubberfield and was solid under the high ball while Heppensall made his mark with a well timed tackle on Hamlin as he raced in on goal.Great Harwood's forays upfield were fleeting. Brad Gorman swung in a few crosses from the right but no one was there to meet them.But in Liam Oldale, they had a player whose pace and trickery gave the S7 defence cause for concern. And from one such run, Great Harwood were unexpectedly on level terms when Oldale forced a foul out of Jake Errey in the area.The striker picked himself up and confidently stroked his spot kick beyond Spencer Harrison in the S7 goal.A shock on the cards was extremely unlikely although Great Harwood were next on the attack when Liam Hindle struck a volley in to the midriff of the S7 keeper.The two time winners should have regained the lead but their failure in front of goal continued when Hamlin blazed over following a good flick on from Errey.But thankfully for them, their set piece was functioning and McKenna rose to head home a second, this time from a Stubberfield corner.The half ended as it had begun, another S7 miss, Hamlin volleying wide from Stubberfield's cleaver through ball.But S7 soon had the comfort of a two goal lead when Bailey finally found an end product to his pacey and direct game, sweeping home after another good delivery from Stubberfield.Great Harwood hit back with some nice interplay between Gorman and Anthony Lynch on the edge of the area before the latter fired narrowly off target.At the other end, Stubberfield fired over the bar before Hamlin finally found the target from arguably his toughest chance. 308497 015 Air Jordan IV 4 Retro Isaiah Doernbecher DB Charty Yesterday, Samantha posted that she a reluctant soccer mom. I sympathized, as I a recent joiner too in fact, my indoctrination has only occurred in the past three weeks as both Kate and Carter started their inaugural seasons. But Sam description of soccer moms in her neck of the woods screaming, snack proffering, minivan driving, no fuss hair cut having clones is nothing like the soccer moms I know. Nope, the moms on the sidelines at our 36 field, state of the art soccer Taj Mahal are the complete opposite. Escalade driving, Starbucks carrying, perfectly golden highlighted angels who exit their vehicles and make a designer shoe studded trek to the soccer mecca. Don get me wrong I not poking fun. Some of these gals are my best friends and have hearts of gold. But I had no idea that being a soccer mom was such a big production. Behold what I learned in my three weeks of indoctrination: 2. Thou doth not showest up in old college sweatshirts and Adidas wind pants to soccer games thou showers, curls the hair, dons make up and wears cute capris and wedges. If it is rainy, thou may wear Hunter rain boots and a stylish cap. 3. Thou scours the Internet to find her player soccer socks in complimentary colors to the team jersey and name. For the Ladybugs, black and white polka dot socks are procured to go with the red jersey. For the Honeybees, yellow and black striped socks are required, not optional. 4. If thou hast a girl soccer player, colorful hair bows must also be procured to match jersey and/or team name. 5. Thou shalt not forget a water bottle for the soccer player. If thou forgets, a purchased bottle of water from the concession stand shall not suffice. Water bottles must be expensive, complicated contraptions that can not only be drunk from they can also spray the player hot, sweaty head (from the three minutes s/he was actually in the game) with a cool mist. 6. Thou shalt not bring a $7.99 folding lawn chair from Wal Mart to The Game. Soccer moms all have a reclining lawn chair with footstool and sun shade. 7. While juggling uniforms, cleats, balls, water bottles and lawn chairs through the mile long path to the soccer field, thou shalt also carry a Starbucks nonfat latte. 8. Even though an official score is not kept (at least for my kiddos), thou shalt secretly keep score while outwardly professing all about having fun! Thou shalt always buy the volunteer referees a slushy at halftime to win their favor thank them for their service. 10. Even if thou screws up every commandment above, thou can still redeem oneself by bringing a kick ass snack for the players. Because everyone knows snack is the best part of the whole game. Did I miss any? C soccer moms know you out there! Haha! I am grateful that the soccer moms in my community more closely resemble the moms that Samantha wrote about than what you describe here! I do not have time or energy to look gorgeous on Saturday mornings especially hauling the soccer player little brother and sister along with me. I am sure that the more affluent communities around here are spending that kind of money on equipment, chairs, and water bottles but, yay for me for not living in one! I also have to give our league credit for one more thing included in the uniform are a pair of appropriately colored soccer socks! WOW I had no idea there were soccer moms out there like the ones you have described. In our neck of the woods yes you wear the team colors of course to support your little ones as they run across that field. On a cold rainy day our coaches tell the kids whomever gets the most mud on them gets a surprise at the end of the game (needless to say washing the muddiest clothes is not all that great) and all of the parents encourage their kid to get the muddiest (so much fun to watch). Our teams get socks, uniform and the hair ribbons as part of the package. I am not the soccer mom to get all gussied up but I do wear nice tennis shoes or flip flops, make up, hair in a ponytail and as for snacks always have the cooler with healthy fun snacks ready to go!!! Soccer Moms rule no matter what neck of the woods you from btw I am the mini van driving soccer mom but don let that fool you I got 4 kids two boys two girls!!! soccer boy and girl softball/baseball boy and girl LOVE IT!!! When I was little, we kids were dropped off at soccer practice and games and picked up when they were over. Are soccer moms/parents supposed to watch every single practice and game? I had a soccer playing brother and sister maybe they dropped us off because they couldn choose which child to watch? Anyway, all three of us became amazing soccer players, playing 4 years of Varsity in highschool. It didn matter that they weren watching I would have been mortified if anyone had tried to put ribbons in my hair when I played. We made fun of those girls. 1 check! 2 check! Sort of! I wear make up, jeans and either a nice top or the team shirt. My hair is curly so I don have to curly. 3 N/A socks provided 4 N/A I have a boy. He wont let me put bows in his hair. He prefers his mowhawk. 5 check! 6 check! The chair cost $15.99 and is hot pink! My first one was stolen. So in reality my chair cost me about $32. 7 Check! But I take a Trenta Black Tea, no water, 4 Splenda Shaken 1000 times. This Internet site provides information of a general nature and is designed for educational purposes only.
