One of Ryder Hesjedals pink jerseys from his Giro dItalia victory has fetched
US$10,300 on eBay. Torrey Smith Jersey . The first Canadian man
to win one of cyclings three Grand Tours put his Stage 7 autographed jersey up
for auction. Hesjedal has said the money will go to Canadian Athletes Now Fund,
or CanFund, and also to his own cycling foundation. A pink jersey, or maglia
rosa, is worn by the Giro dItalias overall leader. Hesjedal first earned it on
the seventh stage of the gruelling 21-stage race and held it for two more before
reclaiming it on Stage 14. The jersey, advertised as “only slightly worn, may
have champagne residue” drew 63 bids prior to close Wednesday. Michael Oher Jersey . Not surprisingly, they
didnt recover. RedHawks centrefielder Nic Jackson had a double, a home run and
five runs batted in while third baseman Ryan Stovall had two singles, a home and
three RBI, as the RedHawks pounded eight Goldeyes pitchers for 16 runs on 13
hits (along with nine walks) as the ‘Hawks won their third straight from the
Fish and took the four-game series in Winnipeg, three-games-to-one. Joe Flacco Youth Jersey . The person told The
Associated Press about the trade on condition of anonymity Wednesday because it
has not been announced pending the completion of some routine logistical
matters. The deal also sends guard Jerome Dyson and retiring centre Brad Millers
$5.1 million contract from New Orleans to Minnesota, allowing the Timberwolves
to clear space under the NBAs salary cap as they pursue free agents. http://www.shopthebaltimoreravens.com/haloti-ngata-jerseys?kids=19

came to the Minnesota Vikings with draft-bargain promise, bringing a
prototypical wide receivers body with the speed to be a deep-route threat
despite dropping to the end of the fourth round because of an injury-affected
senior year at Arkansas. Ray Rice Youth Jersey . Desriveaux is
entering his seventh season in the Canadian Football League. He played the past
six years with the Montreal Alouettes where he amassed 668 rushing yards and two
touchdowns.LOS ANGELES —Put the coronation on hold. The New Jersey Devils are
sending the Stanley Cup final back to the swamp, and they believe theyve planted
a seed of doubt in the minds of the Los Angeles Kings. Rookie forward
Adam Henrique played the hero again by scoring with less than five minutes to
play in regulation and the resilient Devils pulled out a 3-1 victory on
Wednesday. “Its been a fun year and its not over yet,” Henrique said after his
third game-winning goal of these playoffs. Everything about the atmosphere in
Staples Center suggested the Kings were about to hoist the Stanley Cup for the
first time in their history. But the Devils forced Cup keepers Phil Pritchard
and Craig Campbell to put the trophy back in its case for a cross-continent
flight. Game 5 goes Saturday night at Prudential Center in Newark. “You know, I
think we wanted to make them jump on a plane and come to New Jersey,” said
veteran goalie Martin Brodeur, who made 21 saves. “We had to go anyway, might as
well get a game over there. Im sure theyre not happy to make that trip. “Well
try to make it miserable for them again.” There are two things working in the
Kings favour: theyre an amazing 10-0 on the road in these playoffs, and theyve
encountered this situation before. They missed out on a chance to sweep both
Vancouver in the first round and Phoenix in the Western Conference final before
closing things out in Game 5. On Wednesday night, Los Angeles didnt seem to
skate as well as it had earlier in the series and three Kings failed to convert
breakaway chances. The team also had two shots ring off the post. “We can be
sharper,” said Kings defenceman Matt Greene. “I think we played OK but thats not
going to cut it right now.” Henrique has come up huge for the Devils this
spring. Not only did he score overtime goals to eliminate Florida and the New
York Rangers, he found a way to get an even bigger one on this night despite
taking a pass from David Clarkson that was in his feet. The 22-year-old calmly
turned his right boot to get the puck up to his stick before lifting a shot over
Jonathan Quick at 15:29 of the third period. “It seemed to come off my skate
pretty nice,” Henrique said. “Right on the tape.” The game was fast, physical
and full of tension. New Jerseys Patrik Elias and the Kings Drew Doughty traded
third-period goals before Henrique rang a shot in off the post to keep it from
reaching a white-knuckle overtime. Ilya Kovalchuk scored into an empty net.
Simply getting a couple of pucks behind Quick should provide a morale boost for
the Devils. The Kings goaltender has been virtually unbeatable in these playoffs
and looked sharp once again—- snaring a Petr Sykora wrist shot early in the
first period. Justin Tucker Jersey. But New Jersey remained
persistent and Elias eventually opened the scoring on a rebound at 7:56 of the
third period. It was the first time the Devils held a lead in the series. “We
finally got rewarded,” said coach Pete DeBoer. Most impressively, his players
kept their composure when Doughty tied the game 63 seconds later after Clarkson
had been sent off on a questionable boarding penalty. The sellout crowd at
Staples Center was roaring at that point, with virtually the entire building
expecting to see a trophy presentation. There were several reminders of that
possibility throughout the evening, including a spine-tingling cheer that went
up as “Its Cup Time!” was splashed on the scoreboard before the opening puck
drop. A number of Kings acknowledged after Wednesdays morning skate that they
had allowed their minds to wander during the day off between games. “Hey, you
know, its tough to be 3-0 up,” said Sykora, who is playing in his sixth Stanley
Cup final. “Ive been in that situation before and you have a lot of thoughts
about what youre going to do after the game. For us, its perfect now. “Its 3-1,
were going back home and I think we feel good about the game we played tonight.
Were going to bring it again.” The Devils dont feel as though theyve gotten what
they deserve in this series. They dropped the opening two games in overtime and
were happy with their effort in Game 3 despite getting tagged with a 4-0 loss.
Theres still a mountain to climb, with Brodeur acknowledging that “the road
ahead is the most difficult that we could face.” Only the 1942 Toronto Maple
Leafs have erased a 3-0 series deficit in the Stanley Cup final. However, New
Jersey isnt about to lie down in the face of that bleak history. “They believe,”
DeBoer said. “Theyre in the fight, theyve got a lot of pride. ... We know weve
just got to stick with it and it will turn. And it did tonight.” It kept alive
an incredible streak of 43 straight playoff series in which New Jersey hasnt
been swept. The Devils have a proud history that includes three Stanley Cups
while the Kings are still chasing one more victory to wipe away 45 years of
frustration. “Were pretty happy to live another day,” Brodeur said. Notes: Will
Ferrell, Vince Vaughn, LL Cool J, Matthew Perry, Charlie Sheen and Teemu Selanne
were among the celebrities in attendance … The Devils are 9-2 in the playoffs
when scoring first … New Jersey is 0-for-14 on the power play in the series
... Sykora was inserted into the Devils lineup along with Henrik Tallinder,
giving him appearances in six of the last 12 Stanley Cup finals. ’ ’ ’
