Usain Bolt is off and running at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Charles Woodson White Jersey . Yohan Blake
had no problem joining him. Bolt won his heat in a time of 10.08 seconds, in
what looked like a light jog after a strong first five strides out of the block
to advance to the semi-final. “Who runs 10.08s without sprinting? Usain Bolt,”
said CTVOlympics analyst Michael Smith. “I expected it, Im running well, Im
happy, training is great. Reaction was good,” Bolt said after the race. ”Im
looking forward to the semifinals tomorrow.” Blake, who beat Bolt in their two
head-to-head meets this year (100m and 200m races), ran a stress-free race to
win his heat and advance. In fact, all the big names headed for a collision
course in the 100m final all advanced with ease, though American Tyson Gay
looked to walk with a slight limp after winning the opening heat, but had few
concerns about his opening race. “I think I [ran] about 75 per cent. Im now
going to have a massage, see my family and rest up,” he said. Another American,
Justin Gatlin, won his heat easily, as did fellow American Ryan Bailey. Canadian
Justyn Warner, running in the same heat as Bailey, advanced to the semi-final
with a personal-best time of 10.09s. “It was good, the track was super-fast and
it was another good day at the office. I worked on my technique,” Gatlin said.
“I just wanted to out there and give the spectators a good show. You feel the
magic out there.” Asafa Powell, the all-time leader in sub-10s runs, had an
interesting opening heat. He blasted out of the blocks and essentially coasted
the final 40 metres, but replays showed he ran out of his lane. Fortunately, he
did not interfere with another runner, which would have disqualified him.  “Its
the 100m, its a straight race and we can drift a bit,” Powell said.  A preview
of what will come later at the Olympic Games when the individual events shift to
the relays, the American men won the first three heats, while the Jamaican men
followed by winning the next three. The mens semi-final heats will run tomorrow
at 2:45pm et. James Jones Womens Jersey . —Jamaal Charles
took a solid hit to the left knee on his very first carry, then bounced right up
and helped the Kansas City Chiefs score touchdowns on their first two
possessions en route to a 27-17 preseason victory over the Arizona Cardinals on
Friday night. Clay Matthews Jersey . President John
Schuerholz announced the moves Friday, a week after the Braves were eliminated
from the playoffs. Wren took over from Schuerholz as the Braves GM after the
2007 season. http://www.officialgreenbaypackersgear.com/randall-cobb-jersey
. The Salt Lake Tribune, citing unnamed sources, revealed the Jazz will send
point guard Devin Harris to the Hawks in exchange for small forward
Marvin Williams. James Jones Jersey . The North Vancouver,
B.C., native two-hopped the ball into the 18th hole from 133 yards out on
Sunday, eagling to beat American Joe Panzeri by a single shot. Charles Woodson Pink Jersey . —David Pacan
scored twice, including the game winner, as the Niagara IceDogs eliminated the
Oshawa Generals from the first-round of the playoffs with a 4-1 victory on
Sunday in Ontario Hockey League playoff action. GLENDALE, Ariz. —Wayne Gretzky
gave hockey in Los Angeles a significant boost in his eight seasons with the
Kings, providing them with some cache in an overloaded market while boosting
attendance and interest all the way down to the youth level. He had a similar
impact as owner and later coach of the Phoenix Coyotes, though to a different
extent and without nearly as much success. Thriving long after Gretzky was gone,
the Kings and Coyotes are still reaping the benefits of the Great Ones influence
as they get ready to start the Western Conference finals Sunday night in the
desert. “His imprint is certainly on both teams,” Coyotes coach Dave Tippett
said. “Both teams should be grateful for the imprint that hes left on them.”
Just dont expect any carry-over affection between these teams. Bottom line is,
they just dont like each other. As Pacific Division rivals, the Kings and
Coyotes play each other six times a season, enough build up animosity, from an
entire team standpoint down to individual battles. The games are always physical
and the ones this season were particularly brutal, featuring high sticks and
hooks, questionable hits, plenty of face washing and nearly as many fights as
goals. The Coyotes 1-0 victory Feb. 16 in Los Angeles featured four brawls,
including three in the first period and one between captains Shane Doan and
Dustin Brown after Brown knocked Coyotes defenceman Rusty Klesla out the game
with a hard hit. Five days later, Kings winger Kyle Clifford received a game
misconduct for a shot to Phoenix centre Gilbert Brules head. With the teams
facing each other in the playoffs for the first time and a trip to the Stanley
Cup finals on the line, things could really get testy. Game 1 is Sunday night in
the desert and can be seen live on TSN and TSN Mobile TV at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt.
“Weve had some pretty intense, physical games already,” Doan said. “Im assuming
that its just going to kind of go up even more than that.” The series will
feature two teams few expected to still be around this late in the season. One
of the NHLs worst-scoring teams early in the season, the Kings cost coach Terry
Murray his job on Dec. 20. He was replaced by Darryl Sutter and though the
scoring picked up a little, Los Angeles still had to rely heavily on goalie
Jonathan Quick and ended up being the last team to make the playoffs in the West
after Phoenix made a run to take the division title. The Kings were underdogs in
each of their first two playoff series, yet didnt seem to be fazed. Los Angeles
ran past Vancouver in the opening round and swept St. Louis out of the second to
reach the Western Conference finals for the first time since 1993, when Gretzky
led them to the Stanley Cup finals against Montreal. Los Angeles is the first
No. 8 seed to knock off Nos. 1 and 2 in the same playoffs, and has an eye on No.
3, the Coyotes. “A lot of trials and tribulations for this team this year,”
Brown said. “It hasnt been an easy year for us to go througgh a coaching change,
we had some losing streaks, we were fighting for a playoff spot pretty much the
whole season. Jordy Nelson Pink Jersey. It just kind of all
came together.” The Kings at least had some expectations heading into the
season. The Coyotes were picked by many to miss the playoffs, not make a run to
the conference finals. Theyre a group that doesnt like to be told what they cant
do and used the low projections as motivation, shaking off a brutal first half
of the season to win their first division title in 33 years as an NHL franchise.
Despite being a higher seed, Phoenix was an underdog in its first two playoff
series, in part because the team hadnt advanced past the first round since 1987
—nine years before moving to the desert. The Coyotes didnt let that bother
them, either, riding the superb goaltending of Mike Smith and a
by-the-seat-of-their-pants style to reach the conference finals for the first
time. The run has allowed the team to reconnect with a fan base that had fallen
into a malaise while the team played without an owner for the past three
seasons. “We feel weve been in survival mode for three years, really since Dave
(coach Tippett) showed up,” Coyotes general manager Don Maloney said. “This is
great for us and our franchise. Were certainly not satisfied to just sit here
today. We want to go further.” Getting to the Stanley Cup finals wont be easy
for either team, not with the goalie matchup this series features. Though the
play differing styles, Smith and Quick have been equally dominant. Smith made
the Coyotes look awfully smart for signing him to replace Ilya Bryzgalov,
becoming one of the NHLs best goaltenders in his first full season as a No. 1.
The big, athletic goalie was among the league leaders in wins (38), save
percentage (.930) and shutouts (eight) during the regular season to get the
Coyotes into the playoffs. Hes been stellar in the post-season, singlehandedly
carrying the Coyotes at times while posting a 1.77 goals-against average and
.948 save percentage with a pair of shutouts. His counterpart, Quick, was even
better, keeping the Kings in the playoff picture despite their inability to
score during the regular season. He is a finalist for the Vezina Trophy after
setting a franchise record with 10 shutouts, finishing second in the NHL with a
1.95 goals-against average and winning 35 games. Quick has been dominating in
the playoffs, allowing 14 goals in nine playoff games against the Western
Conferences top two teams for a goals-against average of 1.55 and a .949 save
percentage. The games during the regular season were tight—three of six went
to overtime or a shootout, all but one won by a goal—and everyones expecting
the same thing with Smith and Quick between the pipes. “Itll be a tough one for
us,” Kings defenceman Drew Doughty said. “Theyre a very close team to us. Both
teams have great goaltending, great defence and great forwards, so the matchup
is due to be hard-fought and with a lot of rough stuff.” ’ ’ ’
