Post e of Princess Di and her young men there
One of the best underdog stories of the Sochi Olympics may be nearly undone. According to The Globe and Mails James Mirtle, the Latvian mens Olympic team - which finished eighth in the hockey tournament - now faces possible disqualification after a second player has allegedly tested positive for a banned substance. Mirtle cites a report from Latvian web site sportacentrs.com that states an unnamed player has turned up the teams second positive drug test of the tournament. Forward Vitalijs Pavlovs failed a drug test following Latvias 2-1 quarter-final defeat to Canada. Under Olympic rules, hockey teams do not face disqualification until multiple players test positive for banned substances. The eighth-place finish improved Latvia to 10th in the IIHF world rankings, which is a key determinant to Olympic qualification. The top nine teams in the IIHF world rankings received automatic berths to the Sochi Games, which was the reason why Norway (ranked ninth through 2012) was able to avoid the qualification tournaments that saw Slovenia, Austria and Latvia qualify by beating the likes of Germany, France and Belarus. IIHF rankings are based on tournament performance over a four-year span, including both the Olympic hockey tournament and the World Championships. Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey . Speaking on Leafs Lunch with Bryan Hayes and Jamie McLennan on Thursday, Bernier said it was "very hard" at times being entrenched behind Jonathan Quick and is now excited at the prospect of getting an opportunity to compete with Reimer for the top spot with the Leafs. Calvin Johnson Jersey . Of course that doesnt mean hes ignoring it. Thats actually rather impossible given the behind-the-scenes access to the Toronto Maple Leafs the network is getting. http://www.authenticnfllionslockroom.co ... te-Jersey/.

The 19-year-old from Westmount, Que., was edged 7-5, 6-7 (5), 6-3 by third-seeded Alize Cornet of France. Cornet broke Bouchard twice in the last set and saved six break points in the three-hour match.LONDON - Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones would like to see the NFL put a team in London.Jones, one of the most outspoken owners in professional sports, is in Britain to watch his team face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday at Wembley Stadium.On a personal basis, and speaking for the Dallas Cowboys, we very much would like a team in London, Jones said Thursday. It has cachet. It has an air about it of international competition.London is one of probably two or three cities outside the United States that really does have all of the criteria that I would look at for having an NFL team. I certainly know that one of the reasons were here this week playing Sunday is to help encourage interest and increase the interest in the game, increase the interest in the awareness of our game.The NFL has been playing regular-season games at Wembley, the home of Englands national soccer team, since 2007. This season, there are three games, culminating on Sunday with the Cowboys (6-3) and the Jaguars (1-8).On Thursday, the NFL announced that there will be another three games next season, starting with the Miami Dolphins playing the New York Jets on Oct. 4 in the first-ever division game in England.NFL officials have said they envisage having a franchise in London one day, though no time frame has been announced and several logistical issues would need tto be resolved.ddddddddddddhe Jaguars, owned by American billionaire Shad Khan, are also on the schedule for next season, and played in London last season as well. They have agreed to a four-year deal to come to London, so theyll be back in 2016.His imagination is welcomed. His business acumen is really welcome, Jones said of Khan. I know that hes a progressive thinker. Certainly his interest that he has in playing here and potentially being involved more so in the future is one that were all aware of.For the Cowboys, who have played several exhibition games overseas, this is the first time theyll be playing for real outside the United States. And against the Jaguars, Dallas will technically be the visiting team.The problem we have is that we dont want to forgo a home game, Jones said. As youre well aware, we dont play many games relative to other sports, and so thats not something that were interested in doing.But our away game, and our ability to play away, has always been a consideration, something that we would do.That doesnt mean that Jones isnt a fan of Britain, or the monarchy.One of the greatest feelings that I have is the picture of Princess Di and her young men there with Cowboy jerseys on, Jones said. Its one of my favourite of all time.___Online:AP NFL website: —www.pro32.ap.org and —www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
