Real Madrid Vs. Barcelona, 2012 El Clasico Blaugranas Win 2-1 O

Once again, started strong in El Clasico,,Cheap Air Max 2013 Shoes, but eventually picked them apart. It was the same old story in the first leg of the Copa del Rey quarterfinal on Wednesday night, with getting on the scoreboard early, but the Blaugranas dominating the second half to take a 2-1 victory to the Camp Nou. Los Merengues will need a miracle in the second leg next Wednesday, where they will need to win by two goals or score three times in a one-goal win.
was the unlikely scorer of the winning goal, and it was a brilliant one. Messi, who was having a very average game up until this point, provided an absolutely stunning assist with a chip into the box for Abidal to run onto. Like a center forward,Air Max 2013 Shoes On Sale, Abidal controlled the ball brilliantly with his chest and pushed it into the back of the net with his second touch, giving the Blaugranas a massive advantage heading to the Camp Nou.
Ronaldo's goal came in the 11th minute on a brilliant run, but some poor goalkeeping. released him into space with a through ball and he took off with the ball, surging towards goal. forced him into a left-footed shot at a bad angle, but Jose Manuel Pinto allowed Ronaldo's shot to go through his legs, giving Madrid a 1-0 lead.
Barcelona looked like the superior side in the latter part of the first half and continued their dominance to start the second half. It only took them four minutes to find an equalizer, and they found it in unlikely fashion on a corner kick. Xavi delivered a great in-swinger that looked like it would find the head of Pique at the near post, but he missed and the ball continued on. anticipated the ball getting through and lost Pepe before hitting a diving header into the back of the net, tying the score at 1-1.
The game featured a bit of controversy in the 69th minute, when Pepe appeared to step on the hand of while he was on the ground. The referee completely missed the incident and it devolved into a large scuffle that wasn't quite a fight. The Spanish FA will likely review the incident, and it would not be surprising to see Pepe suspended for the second leg.

Tuck rule change wont ease pain for Oakland Raiders - ESPN

Probably not,Cheap Nike Free Running Shoes.
Some wounds never heal. The events of Jan. 19, 2002,Air Jordan Retro 11, in snowy Foxborough,Soccer Shoes,You wonder why this time of the year is so special, Mass., fall under that category in the Raider Nation. It was the inspiration for the tuck rule.
On Wednesday, more than 11 years later and in the heat of the Arizona desert, the NFL voted to make the tuck rule go away. Yes, for the it is 11 years too late. The team even tweeted as much last week when the rule change was proposed.
We all know the gory details. Late in the 2001 AFC divisional playoffs, New England quarterback appeared to fumble. But it was ruled a pass. Had Oakland been awarded the fumble, it would have would have gone to the AFC title game. Instead, the Patriots came back and won the game.
The sting is still felt in Oakland.
Now it is over. But so what? It doesn&rsquo;t change history.
Meanwhile, I did find it interesting that New England owner Robert Kraft abstained from the vote.
His decision to abstain could be perceived to be a message to the Raiders. The late Al Davis was famous for abstaining from league votes. Had the legendary Davis still been alive, I&rsquo;m sure he would have been the first owner in line to cast a ballot in this vote.

Drew Brees struggling on deep throws - NFL Nation Blog - ESPN

For almost all of his tenure with the , has been one of the NFL&rsquo;s most efficient quarterbacks.
But it hasn&rsquo;t been that way the last three games. In losses to the Giants,Nike Air Max, Falcons and 49ers, Brees has been intercepted nine times. In particular, Brees has had trouble on downfield passes. Both of Brees&rsquo; interceptions in Sunday&rsquo;s loss to New York came on throws of more than 10 yards.
In the last three games,Air Max 2013, Brees has no touchdowns and six interceptions on 43 attempts of more than 10 yards,$4.5 million contact, according to ESPN Stats & Information. In the first 10 games, Brees had 13 touchdowns and six interceptions on 130 attempts of more than 10 yards.
What&rsquo;s the difference? I think some of the blame can be placed on Brees&rsquo; decisions. But I also think injuries on the offensive line have played a role.
I also think that the wide receivers haven&rsquo;t done a great job of getting separation and that&rsquo,Nike Air Max Shoes On Sale;s taking a toll on Brees.

The Power Within Kevin Durant -

It takes two to tango, and half of the reason that these NBA Finals -- with the Heat leading 3-1, with a chance to clinch the franchise's second NBA championship on Thursday -- have been so incredibly compelling has been because Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have come to play. Westbrook is an enigma all his own, but KD has been rather excellent consistently, and especially late in games. In the Finals, he's averaged better than 30 points while shooting an excellent 55 percent from the floor and 37 percent from beyond the arc. As great as Westbrook has been -- and that Game 4 was straight-up spectacular -- Durant has hit four fewer field goals than Westbrook ... while taking 20 fewer attempts.
He'll be one of three brilliant small forward scorers in London, with LeBron and 'Melo. Chances are he'll lead them all in points. (Seriously, after watching Durant and LeBron in the Finals, and imagining them together in London, playing on the same team for the first time ever? Oh my God. I feel sorry for you, World.) He'll do what he does in the NBA: shoot accurately as a Marine messing with Call of Duty, create space like he's a tank in a bamboo forest and make defenders look silly as an elk at the movies. The power within Kevin Durant is the power to score at any time, in any conditions, against whoever he wants. He'll be doing just that in London.
The 2010 Worlds was sort of an introduction to top international competition for Durant and the new class of NBA stars, including Derrick Rose,, Westbrook, Rudy Gay and Kevin Love. The major stars of the 2008 Olympic team sat out the campaign, and many of them, including LeBron, Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony,, expect to be back in London. But there are a couple of 2010 alums that will be joining them to make up a hybrid old-new squad,Nike Air Max 2013 On Sale, and KD is No. 1 on that list with a bullet.

This is what Durant does: he scores like few others in recent memory. You don't win three scoring titles by age 23 by fluke. Even in these trying games against the best player in the world (LeBron James), against a defense that is laying everything on the floor, Durant is scoring like pinball wizard with a pocket full of coins. This is what he does. It's what he did for USA Basketball at the 2010 FIBA World Championships, too, and it's what he'll likely do for USA Basketball in the 2012 Olympics in London.
Durant ended up as the No. 3 scorer in the tournament with 22 points per game, behind Argentina's Luis Scola and New Zealand's Kirk Penney. A player from Team USA finishing so high on the scoring table at major competitions is rare simply because Team USA has so many scorers and the coaches tend to do a good job spreading out the shots. (In 2006, for example, top scoring 'Melo was No. 6 in the tournament behind a fella named Carlos Arroyo.) That Durant was able to take over the way he did in Turkey on a team with two dominant scoring point guards and a slew of high-octane players despite sharing the ball and minutes shows that nothing can stop KD's attack mode. Nothing.
