If you did a double take while watching the United States womens field hockey team in the Olympics Saturday, you werent the only one. Ron Hextall Jersey . The blue turf looks exactly like the famous field the Boise State Broncos call home.?The Broncos kick off their home season against the Washington State Cougars on Sept. 10. By that time there wont be any Olympic conflicts to worry about. Dave Schultz Jersey . Durant finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds, Jackson matched his career high with 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting and Lamb scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting, lifting the Thunder to a 94-88 win over San Antonio and snapping the Spurs 11-game winning streak. Michael Raffl Jersey . Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes. Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which rebounded from a loss a night earlier in Oklahoma City and snapped a two-game skid. http:///...larke-flyers-jersey/ . Perez, 35, posted a 1-2 record with a 3.69 earned-run average in 19 relief appearances last season. His season ended Aug. 9 due to a torn ligament in his left elbow. Perez joins infielder Andy LaRoche and catcher Mike Nickeas with minor-league agreements for 2014 that include invitations to attend spring training. VAL DISERE, France -- Lara Gut is not spending any time thinking about Mikaela Shiffrin, even though the American slalom specialist is a serious threat to Guts overall World Cup title.Last weekend, Shiffrin won the 11th consecutive World Cup race that she has entered in that discipline, extending her overall lead over Gut to 105 points.As she seeks her first overall title, the 21-year-old Shiffrin is branching out into the speed disciplines of downhill and super-G.However, Shiffrin is not competing in those events this weekend in Val dIsere, giving Gut a great chance to overtake her.Its already enough hard work to try and make everything work for me, Gut said Thursday after finishing third in downhill training. Im not going to start to worry about the others, what their plans are, whether theyre skipping a race or when theyre coming back. My 24 hours are already full enough.The 25-year-old Gut is focusing only on herself.When youre in the start gate, its just you and the slope, the Swiss said. Im not racing against someone. Im racing for myself.The chances of Gut retaining her overall title look good, considering the current situation in womens skiing.Four-time overall World Cup champion Lindsey Vonn is recovering from a broken arm; 2013 World Cup winner Tina Maze has retired; and two-time World Cup winner Anna Veith -- known as Fenninger before getting married earlier this year -- is working her way back from a serious right-knee injury.But Gut does not like to think about her chances.Im not defending anything, because the overall (title) I won is at home and no one can take that away, Gut said. I understood last year that perfection has nothing to do with sport. I always thought that to win the overall you would need a perfect season. Last year I was crying after races -- it happened that I had no idea what was going on, what I should do, what I should change.So far this season, Gut has wonn the giant slalom in Soelden, Austria, in late October and super-G at Lake Louise, Canada, earlier this month. Jakub Voracek Jersey. I had a good start, better than last year, Gut said. Soelden wasnt perfect, but it was amazing because I just realized how much I just love to ski and how lucky I am.There are no half-measures with Gut.When she gets on the podium, she often finishes first and her ratio is 20 wins from 37 podium finishes.If I just go outside and ski the way I can and it works, then I know I can win, she said. Its not going to be second or third.Last year, Gut clinched a downhill-Alpine combined double in Val dIsere.This year, she has a chance for a hat trick. There is an Alpine combined race on Friday, a downhill on Saturday, and a super-G on Sunday.Everything is possible. Thats the good thing in sport, she said. But Im not going to start thinking about winning the race. Because thinking about winning doesnt bring you anything; thinking about skiing brings you a fast finish.Gut has a good career record at Val dIsere, with five podium finishes.She credits her special affinity with the French Alpine resort to her childhood days holidaying in France with her family.When I was a kid we used to come skiing to Val dIsere in the winter, and in the summer we often went to the Cote dAzur, she said. I just have good memories. Im probably just keeping that.Her brother will be attending this weekend, which is good news because Gut says she has a special task for him if she wins.As is the custom in Val dIsere, race winners are offered a cow. Gut did not take up the offer last year, much to the annoyance of her brother.Last year it was a big issue because I didnt bring it (the cow) home, she said. Hes coming tomorrow and, I think if I win, then thats his thing to think about. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys From China Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Hoodies Wholesale Authentic Jerseys ' ' '
