PHOENIX - For some travellers visiting Arizona for the Super Bowl, the trip may be just as memorable as the game. Ryan Strome Jersey .Hundreds of luxury jets will arrive at the eight airports around metropolitan Phoenix by kickoff Sunday, adding to the thousands of flights expected over the weekend. The Federal Aviation Administration and area airports have been planning for the influx for the past year.Private jet-setters will receive VIP treatment. Many travel with companies that allow individuals and businesses to own a portion of an aircraft or to buy flight hours and that lavish perks on customers including goody-filled swag bags, a concert by country group Lady Antebellum, complimentary cocktails and high-end catering once they emerge from their Lear Jets and Gulfstreams.Weve got a team that greets every airplane. We do roll out -- its maybe not red carpet -- but there is carpet thats rolled out, said Eric Lampert, NetJets vice-president of flight operations.The boost in private jet traffic for the Super Bowl is a sign of how the big game has increasingly become a VIP event, from the many celebrity parties to tickets running several thousand dollars.Starting Thursday, NetJets will have a temporary furnished lounge where customers can relax with complimentary food, drinks, television and Wi-Fi. They will also get a Super Bowl goody bag and admission to a party Saturday night in Scottsdale with Lady Antebellum as the headline entertainment.Dallas-based Flexjet has hired Press, a Phoenix-based food truck, to serve complimentary Italian street eats to passengers starting Thursday. The specialty menu will include mini sausage-bread-pudding muffins, caprese salad skewers and raspberry-filled bombolones, which are Italian doughnuts.These little details really matter, said Megan Wolf, Flexjets vice-president of customer experience. Theyll remember years later that we had this really great food truck and how fun it was, and theyll tell their friends. So, it makes a difference.Commercial travellers should not worry that their departures Sunday or Monday will get pushed aside in favour of their luxury counterparts. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, the main hub, has parking space for 250 private jets. The movements of private jets will be based around commercial traffic, which has priority, airport spokeswoman Heather Lissner said.The area will be inundated with between 1,200 and 1,400 private and commercial flights, but plans are in place to handle the load, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said.The FAA, airport operators and aviation businesses have collaborated on a reservation system to manage the flights, especially on Sunday with many of the expected departures. Every flight will be scheduled in an orderly fashion to prevent air traffic control systems from getting overwhelmed, Gregor said.The FAA will add staffing and operating hours at air traffic control facilities as needed, he said.The Super Bowl is the grand finale in a week that includes the Waste Management Phoenix Open, a golf tournament in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale. Both events will have the Scottsdale Airport dealing with an expected 54 per cent increase in corporate jet traffic, meaning more than 520 additional aircraft.That was the increase seen when both events took place in Arizona in February 2008, airport spokeswoman Sarah Ferrara said.Ferrara, who was not employed by the airport in 2008, said she is looking forward to seeing two to three flights taking off every few minutes.I just hear the departures are going to be fantastic -- these beautiful jets departing one after another, Ferrara said.___Follow Terry Tang on Twitter at https://www.twitter.com/ttangAP Connor McDavid Jersey .

LOUIS -- Cardinals cleanup hitter Allen Craig says hes recovered from a foot injury and ready to be put on St. Louis World Series roster. "Im happy with where Im at," Craig said Sunday. "No complaints. Im happy to be on the roster and give it a shot, so Im really excited." Craig hasnt played since Sept. 4 because a left mid-foot sprain. He anticipates being the designated hitter in Wednesday nights Series opener at the Boston Red Sox. "I think all indications are pointing that way," Craig said. "I havent been told, Hey, youre on the roster, but given my progress, I think Im in a good spot." Its basically a no-lose proposition because the Cardinals could replace Craig if he re-injured the foot. General manager John Mozeliak said doctors believe Craig is progressed to the point hes not risking a major setback. "Hes such a prolific hitter its deefinitely worth the chance," Mozeliak said. Matt Benning Jersey. "My understanding is hes swinging the bat pretty well. If nothing else, he adds a little pop off that bench." St. Louis worked out at Busch Stadium, two days after beating the Los Angeles Dodgers for the NL pennant Craig hasnt tested the foot on defence yet, but he wouldnt have to play first base until the Series moves to Busch Stadium for Game 3 on Saturday. Craig is wearing an orthotic device in his shoe and said there was "nothing super-special" about precautionary measures. Rookie Matt Adams has been the regular first baseman since Craig was hurt while running the bases. Craig batted a major league-best .454 during the regular season with runners in scoring position. "Hes another force in that lineup," manager Mike Matheny said. "So, if we can have him well be excited."

SAO PAULO, Brazil -- The first test match at a World Cup stadium in the southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre will not be played this weekend as planned because infrastructure work outside the venue has not been completed. Eddie Lack Jersey . The Beira-Rio is not expected to be fully completed until late February, but local club Internacional was set to host matches with limited attendance beginning on Sunday. The matches would serve as test events as the stadium prepares to host five World Cup games in June. The decision not to play at the Beira-Rio was made because of all the infrastructure work outside the venue. Brazil promised to have all 12 World Cup stadiums ready by the end of last year but five remain under construction. Joe Nieuwendyk Jersey . Philippe Desrosiers stopped 42 shots through overtime and three more in the shootout to pick up his third shutout of the season for Rimouski (31-15-7). Zachary Fucale made 28 saves for Halifax (34-17-3) in the loss. Matthew Tkachuk Jersey . 22. Wade averaged 26.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.0 steals while leading the Heat to a 3-0 record. The 31-year-old shot 60 percent from the field and 50 percent from 3-point range en route to his 17th weekly honor. http://www.flamesauthority.com/authentic-tj-brodie-flames-jersey/ . -- Cam Newton pranced into the end zone, placed his hands over his chest and did his familiar Superman pose.MANCHESTER, England -- Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal was hired as Manchester United manager on Monday, tasked with repairing the damage from David Moyes disappointing 10 months in charge and reviving the fortunes of one of the worlds biggest clubs. The 62-year-old Dutchman has signed a three-year contract and will take over at Old Trafford after the World Cup in Brazil, becoming the first United manager from outside Britain and Ireland. United great Ryan Giggs, who announced the end of his 23-year playing career, will be Van Gaals assistant. "To work as a manager for Manchester United, the biggest club in the world, makes me very proud," Van Gaal said in a United statement. "This club has big ambitions; I too have big ambitions. Together Im sure we will make history." Van Gaal has experience of coaching -- and winning league titles -- at some of the worlds top teams, but even spells at Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich may not prepare him for the rebuilding job required at United. The club has been in a state of flux since the retirement of Alex Ferguson last May after nearly 27 years in charge. Moyes, Fergusons successor, was dismissed last month before the team went on to finish seventh -- its lowest placing since the Premier Leagues inception in 1992. United also failed to qualify for European football for the first time in 24 years. Van Gaal is likely to be handed considerable funds to strengthen the squad to get United back in the Champions League, something the clubs American owners -- the Glazer family -- werent prepared to give Moyes. A return to Europes top competition will likely be the priority, followed by a desire to play the kind of attacking, dynamic brand of football expected at United but unable to be delivered by Moyes. United has broken the mould by appointing Van Gaal. In the clubs 136-year history, no previous manager has come from outside Britain or Ireland, a common occurrence at Englands other big clubs in recent years. The notion of United hiring coaches in a bid to create a dynasty -- something Ferguson uniquely achieved -- also appears to have ended. After spending six years at Ajax, where Van Gaal guided a talented young team to the pinnacle of European football by winning the Champions League in 1995, he joined Barcelona in 1997 for the first of two spells -- the first lasting three seasonns and the second barely half a year. Mike Smith Jersey. He has since coached AZ Alkmaar in the Dutch league and Bayern between 2009-11. So he may not be the long-term manager many at United crave -- Giggs, Uniteds interim manager for last seasons final four games and one of the clubs greatest players, is thought to be being groomed for the seat in the future -- but the fact that Van Gaal has won league titles with every team he has worked makes him one of Europes most-respected coaches. He has been coach of the Netherlands since 2012, his second spell with the national team following a stint from 2000-02. "Everyone is very excited about this new phase in the clubs history," United vice-chairman Ed Woodward said. "His track record of success in winning leagues and cups across Europe throughout his career makes him the perfect choice for us. "People know him as a larger-than-life character but I have also been extremely impressed by his intelligence, thoughtful approach to the role and his diligence." He can be spiky and provocative with journalists and hardly lacks in self-belief, a trait which can often spill over to make him appear arrogant. But after the failed tenure of Moyes, United needed a manager who commanded respect and had a strong track record. His job wont be easy. While United has regressed since landing its record-extending 20th English championship last year, rival Liverpool has improved greatly under Brendan Rodgers and finished second in the Premier League this season. Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal are established members of the top group and showing no signs of being on the slide. The appointment of Giggs as Van Gaals No. 2 will satisfy those eager for some continuity at the club following the trophy-filled era of Ferguson. The 40-year-old Giggs published an open letter on Uniteds website an hour after Van Gaals appointment, praising the Dutchmans qualities and revealing his decision to end his playing days. "For me, today is new chapter filled with many emotions -- immense pride, sadness, but most of all, excitement towards the future," Giggs said. "United fans I hope will share and echo my belief that the club, the management and owners, are doing everything they can to return this great club to where it belongs, and I hope to be there every step of the way."

No other team in the league has experienced more uncertainty at quarterback the past few years than the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Babe Ruth Jersey . Buck Pierces time was marred by several injuries while none from the cast of backups, from Alex Brink and Joey Elliott to Max Hall, Justin Goltz, and Jason Boltus, managed to distinguish themselves during their opportunities for the team. Even the Ottawa Redblacks, not yet having played a game, appear better set behind centre. Compared to some of Winnipegs rotation of quarterbacks the past couple seasons, the expansion team has an embarrassment of riches at the position with veterans Henry Burris and Kevin Glenn, and two-year pro Thomas DeMarco. With the trade and subsequent contract extension for former Saskatchewan Roughriders QB Drew Willy, Bombers GM Kyle Walters is hoping all his QB problems are in the past. After losing out to Zach Collaros and Henry Burris just days before, Walters finally landed a QB to be penciled in atop his depth chart heading into the 2014 season; but will Willy stay there, and more importantly, will he find success where so many before him have faltered? The 27-year-old is light on experience, having started just two games in his career behind Darian Durant in Saskatchewan, but has shown potential in his limited action. Willy threw just 52 passes last season, going for 473 yards and four touchdowns to just one interception. He saw a little more action last year, his first in the league, and for his career is 101-147 for 1,182 yards and nine touchdowns to five interceptions. His resume is light, but theres enough to get excited about with the Buffalo product. The Rouge asks: Is Drew Willy the answer at quarterback for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers? As always, its Your! Call.

When Chris Phillips suits up for his next game, he will move into a tie with Jean Beliveau on the NHLs all-time games played list. Tanner Pearson Jersey . Beliveau played his entire career with the Montreal Canadiens and up to this point, Phillips has played all 1,124 games of his career with the Ottawa Senators. But there is no guarantee that Phillips will be in the Ottawa lineup on Tuesday night in Edmonton, as his future with the team is up in the air. Phillips has reportedly been offered a one-year contract extension by the Senators, but its believed the 35-year-old defenseman is looking for a multi-year deal. If the two sides cannot come to an agreement on an extension in the next 48 hours, there is a very realistic chance that Phillips will be moved by Wednesdays 3pm ET trade deadline. And while Phillips has been able to control his fate in the past, he no longer has the luxury of holding the hammer with a no-trade clause this time around - which means general manager Bryan Murray can move him to any team in the NHL that is willing to offer suitable compensation. If Phillips is moved by the trade deadline, he will join the likes of Daniel Alfredsson and Jarome Iginla as players who left Canadian cities after spending the majority of their careers with one team. A couple of years ago it seemed unfathomable that all three of these players would pack up and leave. But playing an entire career in one Canadian city has been virtually impossible since the NHL expanded in 1967. That ended the Original Six era when players like Beliveau and the Richard brothers played with only one Canadian franchise for the duration of their careers. Since that time, only one player - Bob Gainey - played more than 1,000 games and spent his entire career with one Canadian team. As it stands right now, Phillips and Gainey are the only two members in that exclusive club - although that could change in the next couple of days. (Other players like Thomas Steen and Stan Smyl spent their entire career in one Canadian city, but did not meet the 1,000-game threshold) At the same time, its a lot easier to find players who fit these criteria in American cities. Whereas the Canadian list of players includes just Gainey and Phillips (for now), the American list includes the following 14 players: Nicklas Lidstrom - DetroitSteve Yzerman - DetroitMartin Brodeur - New JerseyKen Daneyko - New JerseyGilbert Perreault - BuffaloDenis Potvin - NY IslandersBobby Clarke - PhiladelphiaPatrik Elias - New JerseyDave Taylor - Los AngelesCraig Ramsay - BuffaloWayne Cashman - BostonPatrick Marleau - San JoseTomas Holmstrom - DetroitMilan Hejduk - Colorado So just by comparing the two lists, it seems significantly more difficult to spend your entire career in one Canadian city - even when you adjust for the fact there are roughly three times as many American teams in the NHL. This dates back almost 30 years, when players from the Montreal Canadiens dynasty moved along to other teams to close out their careers. Guy Lafleur, Larry Robinson, Serge Savard, Guy Lapointe and Steve Shutt all joined other teams after the Canadiens stopped winning Stanley Cups. And all of the pieces of the Edmonton Oilers dynasty found new homes as well, with most of them ending up with the New York Rangers at some point in their careers. This trend also includes players who didnt play for winning teams, but were considered to be mainstays with their Canadian teams. Borje Salming played the first 1,099 games of his career with the Toronto Maple Leafs, but in a prelude to what Alfredsson would later do, he signed a free agent contract with the Detroit Red Wings to finish off his career. Even popular players who were deemed to be the "face of the franchise" by the fans and media in the 1990s were moved along, like Trevor Linden, Wendel Clark and Ryan Smyth. All three players eventually returned to their original teams to close out their careers, but were unable to stay for several years during their prime. And the recent examples of Alfredsson and Iginla highlight the challenges of staying with one Canadian team in this current climate. The Sedin twins recently signed long-term extensions that should keep them in Vancouver for the rest of their careers, but dont be surprised if they leave to chase a Stanley Cup at some point if the Canucks dont have a legitimate chance at winning in two or three years. There are certainly more challenges that make playing in a Canadian market extremely difficult. In some cases, the players feel suffocated by a rabid media and fan base and yearn for a chance to spend a couple of seasons in a fresh place. In other instances, the players fail to live up to the expectations of a contract and are forced to a new destination because public pressure becomes intolerable. Often a player just wants a chance to win a Stanley Cup and doing so has been impossible for Canadian teams since 1993. And we are all well aware of how Canadian cities have colder climates and higher taxes that make American destinations seem more appealing at times. Whatever the reasons - and most need to be judged on a case-by-case basis - it appears virtually impossible to spend your entire career in one Canadian city. If Phillips signs an extension in Ottawa, he will join Bob Gainey on this list of post-expansion players to spend their entire careers with one Canadian team and play more than 1,000 games. But as history shows, its more likely that Phillips will be moving on to a different destination to close out his career. Nic Dowd Jersey . Subway workers in Rio de Janeiro, meanwhile, were holding an assembly to vote on whether they would strike to demand higher wages, threatening to disrupt transportation. By late Tuesday night there was no announcement of their decision. Tyler Toffoli Jersey . SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. http://www.nhlkingsauthority.com/authentic-wayne-gretzky-kings-jersey/ .C. - The Carolina Hurricanes hope they now have the leadership tandem in place to turn the franchise around.England will look to overcome a striker shortage and shrug off bleak pronouncements about the state of its national game by beating Ukraine on Tuesday to take a giant stride toward the 2014 World Cup. Automatic qualification for finishing first in Group H is up for grabs, with England leading on goal difference over Montenegro and one point clear of third-place Ukraine with three matches left. The English would be OK with a draw in Kyiv, which would keep the destiny of the group in their hands ahead of home matches against Montenegro and Poland in October. A victory, however, would make a huge statement after recent comments by the new chairman of the Football Association, Greg Dyke, that English football is a "tanker that needs turning" and that nobody "realistically" thinks England will win next years World Cup in Brazil. "I think if we can fly back with three points then were in a very strong position to go through," said England midfielder Frank Lampard, who will start the match for his 100th appearance for his country. Being without its three leading strikers -- Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge (both injured) and Danny Welbeck (suspended) -- isnt the only reason why England will find it tough in the Ukrainian capital, though. Ukraine has rediscovered its best form in recent months, following up a 4-0 win at then-group leader Montenegro in June with a national-record 9-0 trouncing of San Marino on Friday. The hosts are also still hurting from an unlucky 1-0 loss to England in Donetsk in last years European Championship, when they were denied a legitimate goal after the ball crossed the line before being cleared by John Terry. "Our team doesnt have the big names that England has, but we (still) have good players," Ukraine captain Anatoliy Tymoshchuk said. "The thing is, such stars as Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Ashley Cole have achieved success in their clubs but for some reason or other cant attain the same level of success with their national team. "England has players known to the entire European continent, but Ukraine is better." One player who isnt so well known on the global stage is Rickie Lambert, who will nevertheless lead the forward line for England again on Tuesday. The Southampton strikker has risen from obscurity to play a starring role for Roy Hodgsons side, scoring the winner on debut with his first touch as a substitute in a 3-2 victory over Scotland last month and then adding another goal -- plus two assists -- in the 4-0 win over Moldova on Friday. Jonathan Quick Jersey. At 31, Lambert is a late developer but he is making up for lost time. This will be the first competitive match outside England in his journeyman career. "You are talking about a very mature person who has seen all that football has to offer," Hodgson said. "He has also seen the fact that if you are not in football, what life has to offer is maybe not as good comparably." Hodgson is renowned for being a cautious manager so the temptation may be to set his team out not to lose the match. Who he chooses to replace Welbeck on the left wing will be telling -- will it be the more defensive-minded James Milner or a more out-and-out winger in Ashley Young or even uncapped Andros Townsend? Otherwise, England will be unchanged from the team that started against Moldova, with Lampard becoming the countrys eighth player to reach 100 caps. There will be two other centurions in the team -- captain Steven Gerrard and left back Ashley Cole, who will both be making their 105th caps. "I lost on my 100th cap so hopefully it can be different for Frank and he can go away with fond memories," Gerrard said Monday. "This is going to be our last crack at doing well at a World Cup and hopefully thats infectious for the group and the young lads can see how much we want it and feed off that." Ukraine coach Mykhailo Fomenko, a wily strategist who has won four straight games since taking over from Oleh Blokhin in December, has no fresh injury problems and has to choose between in-form pair Marco Devic and Roman Zozulya for the lone-striker berth. "England is very strong, its a well-known European team," Fomenko said Monday. "Its not only the match of my life, but others as well." Elsewhere in the group, Poland visits San Marino seeking a win to keep its qualification hopes alive. The fourth-place Poles are five points behind the leaders and must still play England and Ukraine away. Montenegro has a night off after playing a game more than its rivals.

Pat LaFontaine is returning to his work with the NHL. Jordy Mercer Jersey . According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, Lafontaine has re-joined the Deputy Commissioners Office as vice president of Hockey Development and Community Affairs. LaFontaine resigned as President of the Buffalo Sabres one day after the team traded goaltender Ryan Miller to the St. Louis Blues and just over three months after he accepted the job with the team. Prior to leaving for the Sabres, LaFontaine worked with the league on player safety issues. Dave Parker Jersey .

I had spent ten years from junior kindergarten through Grade 8 at the northwest corner of Bathurst Street and Viewmount Avenue in midtown Toronto. It was my home court advantage. I knew the roll of the rims and the carom of the walls and which teachers were lax at taking attendance. It couldnt last forever. At some point a promotion was coming, and my record setting minor league career wouldnt matter once new maths and makeup-laden girls challenged all that I had honed. I was heading to St. Andrews Junior High. Grade 9. The Show. Embarking on my first day in the wilds of the public school system, I knew I had to make my mark early. Mr. Pelech, my clever English teacher, noticed my t-shirt just minutes into the first class. It was a tattered, ink-drenched Grateful Dead concert tee. He remarked that "Grateful Dead" was an example of a contradiction. Contra what now? Coach tapped my shoulder and I hopped the boards. I proceeded to argue with a shellshocked Mr. Pelech for several minutes. My arguments were lithe, varied and completely illogical, but I had been trained to stand my ground no matter how ridiculous my position. Eventually, a hapless Mr. Pelech scanned the class and sputtered, "Just who is this guy?" Each one of my classmates shook their heads sheepishly as if to say uh, dont look at me. Mark made.

Kasper Schmeichel has undergone surgery on the hand injury he sustained during Leicesters Champions League clash with FC Copenhagen. Marouane Fellaini Jersey . Schmeichel fractured his right hand while punching the ball during the goalless draw on Wednesday and, after being assessed by a specialist, went under the knife on Thursday night. Sky Sports News HQ reporter Rob Dorsett reveals Schmeichel suffered a broken hand on Wednesday night The Denmark international, who played for an hour after sustaining the injury and made a fantastic save in the dying seconds in Copenhagen, is expected to be out for up to six weeks but he took to Twitter on Friday to reveal surgery went well and vowed to return from the injury as soon as possible.

Leicester vs W Brom November 6, 2016, 4:15pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri praised Schmeichel and revealed the goalkeeper even wanted to play this weekend despite his injury.I dont know everything but last night he had an operation and the surgeon said everything is okay. Now it depends on how long. Of course the hands, as for a boxer, are very important, Ranieri said.I dont put a deadline on it because every man is different. Maybe two, three, five, six, maybe seven weeks - I dont know. On the night he felt something, it was pulsing, and it was unbelievable. Maybe with the adrenaline and concentrating he felt nothing. Claudio Ranieri praised Schmeichel after he picked up an injury He made a good save and came and punched the ball, but its unbelievable he didnt feel anything. Kasper wants to play on Sunday! But that is normal.Schmeichel has been spoken about by some as one of the top goalkeepers in the Premier League but, while Ranieri refused to get drawn into that debate, he did insist he had full confidence in Ron-Robert Zieler, who will start against West Brom at the King Power Stadium on Sunday, live on Sky Sports 1. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. The 27-year-old former Manchester United trainee has played four games, two wins and two defeats, since joining from Hannover 96 in the summer.It is a pity, but thats it, Ranieri said. What can we do, change the hand? Theres nothing we can do, that is the destiny and we have to accept it. Ron-Robert Zieler joined the Foxes on a four-year contract He is not so happy - its normal. When you are in fantastic form you hope you dont get an injury. It is difficult to say if Kasper is the best, but for us he is the best - for me he is the best. Kasper is very important for my team.But I am very confident with Zieler, so its okay. Of course Kasper is in very great condition, but Zieler gives me confidence. Also See: Who are the home kings?

Romelu Lukaku Jersey .com) - One point guard will return, while another will sit when the Minnesota Timberwolves visit American Airlines Center to take on the Dallas Mavericks. http://www.manunitedfcpro.com/Kids-David-Beckham-Jersey/ . -- Orleans Darkwa ran in from 1 yard with 1:45 left, and the Miami Dolphins rallied from two scores down in the final minutes to beat the Dallas Cowboys 25-20 on Saturday night.WINNIPEG -- Wade Miller barely smiled Tuesday as he discussed the "acting" tag being removed from his title of Winnipeg Blue Bombers president and chief executive officer. Maybe it was because hes not comfortable facing a room of reporters, but more likely its because hes all business when it comes to turning around the floundering CFL club. And that wont be an easy task. The Bombers finished this season with a league-worst record of 3-15 that tied a franchise-low mark for an 18-game schedule. Theyve missed the playoffs four of the past five years and havent won a Grey Cup for a league-high 23 seasons. "Life takes you in different paths and this is the direction Im going down now and I look forward to the challenge," Miller said after he was appointed to officially oversee a team he played for from 1995-2005. The 40-year-old former fullback/linebacker was named the teams acting president and CEO on Aug. 9 following the firing of Garth Buchko. Millers first move was to fire general manager Joe Mack and elevate assistant GM Kyle Walters into an acting GM role. Millers long to-do list begins with either stripping Walters of his acting title or finding someone to replace him. "Were two to four weeks away from being able to make that determination on that position," he said. Hell also have a hand in football operations with the person who ends up with the GMs job. "The general managers got a role to do in the organization and I expect them to do that to the best of their ability, and Ill be involved in football as anybody would be when its such a critical part of our business," Miller said. The Bombers also have question marks surrounding their coaching staff. Mack had fired head coach Paul LaPolice in August 2012 and defensive co-ordinator Tim Burke took over on an interim basis until he was given the job last November. Burkes first full season was an uphill battle as Mack kept often-injured Buck Pierce as the teams starting quarterback. Pierce ended up getting injured, his young backups didnt flourish and then Pierce was traded in September. If the clubs GM decides a new head coach is needed -- the team has had five in nine years -- Miller said hell be involved in that hiring process. "Ill work with the general manager and be that second interview that you should do within any organization," he said. "Its such a key position for us."; Miller co-founded Pinnacle Staffing Solutions in 2002 and helped build it into Manitobas largest recruitment firm. Juan Mata Jersey. Hes also a partner in Elite Performance (a high-performance training centre), three Elite Sports Injury clinics and two Booster Juice franchises. Bombers board chairman Brock Bulbuck attended Tuesdays announcement and said the board didnt conduct a formal process to look outside the club for another candidate while Miller had the acting title. "We obviously kept our ears to the ground, effectively to be able to move on a Plan B if we needed to," Bulbuck said. "But we also needed to respect and give Wade the confidence that was necessary in order for him to be able to undertake the role that he had agreed to." Miller has "free rein" to hire a GM and doesnt need board approval, he added. When Miller was hired in August, it was believed he was the "right man for the job" and hes "proven" himself as a leader with good business acumen, Bulbuck said. "He brought an extreme passion and fan and sponsor focus to the organization," he said. "(He) effectively instilled a culture and an expectation of winning and us needing to do whatever it takes in order to be competitive on the field and in the business office." He wouldnt divulge Millers contract term, but said it was a typical CEO term that was "not a very short term and not an extremely long term." "We want to return this organization to the successful history that it has enjoyed in the past," Bulbuck said. "And I believe that we started to make those changes, but they will not happen overnight, just as the change we made in August was not able to translate into on-field performance overnight." Miller, a former University of Manitoba player drafted by the Bombers in 1995, defied the odds by making the CFL squad. His tenacity and football smarts carried him through an 11-year career, including twice being named an East Division all-star. He left the club as its leader in career special-teams tackles. Now hes ready to tackle many more challenges. "The football club means a lot to me," Miller said. "We need to bring this organization up to where it should be in terms of the connection we have with our community, being competitive on the football field and those are the challenges I take on."

ARLINGTON, Va. Marcus Davenport Saints Jersey . -- Washington Capitals forward Brooks Laich is expected to miss the rest of the regular season after having an operation on a groin muscle. The Capitals announced Monday on Twitter that Laich "underwent a successful procedure to release a tight adductor," which is part of the groin. The team said a full recovery usually takes four to six weeks. Washingtons last regular-season game is April 13. Laich missed two of the past three games for Washington, which entered Monday ninth in the Eastern Conference, one spot out of a playoff berth. He has eight goals and seven assists this season. Hampered by a groin injury, Laich only played in nine games last season. The Capitals play Tuesday at the Anaheim Ducks. Kurt Coleman Saints Jersey . -- The Phoenix Coyotes have won three in a row for the first time in 4 1/2 months, and theyve done it just in time for the stretch run to the playoffs. Custom New Orleans Saints Jerseys . On Wednesday night, they showed that stellar defence and a little small ball can get the job done too. With pinch-runner Kevin Pillar aboard after Dioner Navarro opened the bottom of the ninth with a single, Anthony Gose dropped down an excellent bunt along the first-base line. http://www.saintsrookiestore.com/Saints-Tre-Quan-Smith-Jersey/ . - A late-game interception by defensive back Malcolm Butler saved the Super Bowl for the New England Patriots.EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings have signed defensive tackle Tom Johnson. The deal was done Thursday. The 29-year-old Johnson spent the last three seasons as a backup with the New Orleans Saints, playing in 40 games plus four more contests in the playoffs while totalling five sacks. Johnson started his pro career in 2006 as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Mississippi, but he was cut by the Indianapolis Colts. Then he spent time in NFL Europe, the Arena Football League and the Canadian Football League before finally appearing in an NFL game in 2011. The addition of Johnson, likely to backup last years top draft pick Sharrif Floyd, will probably mean the end of an 11-season run in Minnesota by Kevin Williams, who became a free agent. Patrick Robinson Jersey. Meanwhile, free agent defensive end Corey Wootton has also agreed to terms with the Vikings. Wootton and his agent, Mike McCartney, tweeted the agreement on Thursday night. Wootton spent the first four seasons of his career with the division rival Chicago Bears. Wootton has played all 16 games each of the last two seasons when he combined for 10 sacks. He had three sacks last season. Wootton has a place in Vikings lore. He was the defender who drove Brett Favre into the frozen turf at TCF Bank Stadium in 2010. The hit gave Favre a concussion that prevented the quarterback from playing in the final two games of his career. Wootton says in his tweet that he is "excited to start a new chapter" in Minnesota.

Schaub will start for an injured Case Keenum and try to help the Texans end a 12-game skid. Schaubs last action in Houston came when he took over late in a game against Oakland on Nov. 17 as Keenum was struggling.Brasilia, Brazil - Brazil will still be trying to make sense of its semifinal implosion on Saturday when the team faces the Netherlands in the third-place match at the Estadio Nacional de Brasilia. Listen to all the action live on TSN 1050, TSN 690, TSN 1200, and TEAM 1410 beginning at 4pm et/1pm pt. The hosts were embarrassed by Germany, 7-1, in Tuesdays semifinal as the Germans scored five times in the span of 18 minutes in the first half on their way to the dominant win. Brazils players and coaches were sort of at a loss to explain the destruction after the match, but head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari is hopeful his men can still end the World Cup on a winning note. "I know my career will be marked by this defeat, but we have an obligation to move on and think about the next goal, which in this case is the match for third place on Saturday in Brasilia," Scolari said. "I know its a much smaller dream than we all wanted, but we have to honor the shirt of the national team." In addition to Neymar missing the Germany match because of injury, Brazil was also without captain Thiago Silva through suspension and his absence in the middle of the Selecaos defense was very evident. Brazil was booed off the field at halftime of the semifinal with the team trailing 5-0, but Silva is hopeful that the fans can help to lift the players for one last match at this tournament. "This is a bad time so we need strength from our fans," said Silva, who will be eligible to return to the lineup for Saturdays fixture. "I guarantee that we will play this Saturdays game like it was the final. Marcus Kruger Jersey. quot; The Netherlands came extremely close to returning to the World Cup final as the Dutch lost on penalty kicks to Argentina following a 0-0 match through 120 minutes. After reaching the final in 2010 and losing in extra time to Spain, it will certainly be tough for Louis van Gaals team to lift themselves for Saturdays contest. The Oranje saw Argentina score on each of its four penalty kick attempts, while Ron Vlaar and Wesley Sneijder both saw their shots saved by Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero. "It does hurt [to lose this way], especially if you are one of the players to miss," Sneijder said of the shootout. "I think there was only one team that wanted penalties and that was them [Argentina]. And yes, they won, so well done to them. Its all about taking responsibility in those situations, and sometimes [in shootouts] things can go wrong. But of course I am sad." Sneijder scored a crucial equalizer in the 88th minute against Mexico in the round of 16 to help the Dutch advance, while his side was on the opposite side of a shootout against Costa Rica in the quarterfinals. The Netherlands has yet to win a World Cup despite playing in the finals three times, while the Dutch have now lost twice in the semifinals as well. For now the Dutch will once again have to settle for the role of bridesmaid, and while both teams would like to go out with a win, Saturdays match doesnt figure to offer much solace for either side.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Jaromir Jagr Jersey . -- Phil Hughes ended a personal losing streak that dated to last July, pitching into the seventh inning Sunday and helping the Twins top the Kansas City Royals 8-3 to avoid a three-game sweep. Hughes (1-1), who signed a $24 million, three-year deal in December, allowed an RBI single to Omar Infante in the fifth and a two-run homer to Alcides Escobar in the seventh while winning for the first time in 17 appearances. He had lost eight games since that victory on July 2. Josmil Pinto homered and Trevor Plouffe and Kurt Suzuki each drove in a pair of runs for the Twins, who battered Yordano Ventura (1-1) before piling on against the Royals bullpen. The loss ended Kansas Citys five-game winning streak. Hughes solid showing came after he had allowed 12 earned runs in his first 15 innings with Minnesota. The former All-Star had not survived past the sixth since July 13, when he was still a member of the New York Yankees and was facing his current team. It helped that the Twins staked him to an early lead. After they went 1 for 8 with runners in scoring position in a 5-4 loss Saturday, Plouffe came through with a double in the Twins first opportunity Sunday. His drive into the gap in right was enough to score Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer and give Minnesota a 2-0 lead in the first inning. The Twins added on in the fourth. After Suzuki walked, the Royals were unable to turn a double play on a grounder by Aaron Hicks. Ventura then threw the ball away trying to pick him off first, and a wild pitch put Hicks on third base. Eduardo Escobars single scored the run. Ventura was finally pulled from the game in the fifth, when the 22-year-old right-hander gave up a leadoff triple to Plouffe and a single to Chris Colabello. He allowed four runs on six hits and four walks in four-plus innings, a line that looks even uglier after two dominant outings in which he allowed a combined one run on six hits against Tampa Bay and Houston. The Royals bullpen, which had thrown 14 straight scoreless innings, never gave their offence a chance to get Ventura off the hook. Pintos homer came off Louis Coleman later in the fifth, and Justin Marks -- making his big league debut -- allowed three more runs in the seventh. Escobars two-run shot later in the seventh knocked Hughes from the game, but relievers Brian Duensing, Casey Fien and Glen Perkins made sure his long losing streak would finally end. NOTES: The Twins played with 24 players after claiming OF Sam Fuld off waivers from Oakland and designating OF Darin Mastroianni for assignment. Fuld is expected to join the Twins on Tuesday in Tampa Bay. ... The Royals open a four-game series Monday in Cleveland with RHP Jeremy Guthrie on the mound. The Twins are off before their three-game set against the Rays. ... The Twins left 11 on base. The Royals stranded eight. T.J. Oshie Jersey . - The situation looked bleak at best for the coach Doc Rivers Clippers -- down by four points with 18 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Ilya Samsonov Jersey . Neither striker Demba Ba nor Fernando Torres came close to scoring as Chelsea was left unsuccessfully appealing for penalties in this drab penultimate game of the season.

FRANKFURT, Germany -- Hoffenheim scored three goals in quick succession late in the first half to beat Wolfsburg 6-2 in the Bundesliga on Sunday and dent its hopes of qualifying for the Champions League. In the late match, Alexander Meier scored in the 89th minute to give Eintracht Frankfurt a 2-1 comeback victory over Stuttgart, which fell to its eighth consecutive defeat and is now one place above the danger zone. Hoffenheim is the third highest scoring team in the Bundesliga after Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund and it took only four minutes for Roberto Firmino to put the host side ahead with a perfectly weighted lob. Bas Dost equalized for Wolfsburg in the 15th with a header. Niklas Suele began the three-goal flurry with a header in the 37th. Anthony Modeste then scored twice, with a low shot in the 39th and a header in the 43rd. Ivan Perisic pulled one back for Wolfsburg, before the home side struck twice more. Sejad Salihovic converted a penalty and Sven Schipplock completed the win. Wolfsburg finished with 10 men, after Christian Traesch was sent off in the 80th for a foul on Kevin Vollland that resulted in the penalty. Madison Bowey Jersey. Hoffenheim, undefeated in five games, ended Wolfsburgs run of four consecutive wins and prevented the visiting team from overtaking fourth-place Schalke. Wolfsburg remained fifth and Hoffenheim 10th. In Frankfurt, Stuttgart went ahead in the 31st minute after Eintracht lost possession in midfield. Alexandru Maxim found Martin Harnik on the left and the midfielder slotted low inside the near post. Stuttgarts goalkeeper Sven Ulreich went on to make several outstanding saves, including a one-handed tip-away from a header by Stefan Aigner. But it was his kick-in that resulted in Frankfurts equalizer in the 80th through substitute striker Jan Rosenthal. Marco Russ headed the ball from the centre circle back into Stuttgarts half and Rosenthal raced through to slot past Ulreich. Eintracht secured the win in the 89th when Johannes Flum slipped the ball through the legs of Georg Niedermeier and squared it back for Meier, who drove it home with a low shot. Eintracht jumped to 12th place and is six points away from the relegation playoff place.

ORCHARD PARK, N. Josh Sweat Eagles Jersey .Y. - Its no secret to Fred Jackson that the Buffalo Bills have struggled running the ball this season.Little did the veteran running back realize how historically bad the production has been. Jackson was taken aback when informed the Bills are in jeopardy of setting a franchise-low over a 16-game season heading into their final game at New England (12-3) on Sunday.Well, then lets make sure that doesnt happen, Jackson said.Its a number that provides added incentive in a game Buffalo (8-7) has very little to play for after being eliminated from playoff contention following a 26-24 loss at Oakland last week.Thats not something you want on your resume, he said.The teams once-formidable ground attack has been slowed to a crawl.With 1,378 yards rushing, the Bills are 174 yards short of matching the teams 16-game low of 1,552 yards in 2006. That wont be easy for an offence that hasnt topped 120 yards rushing since gaining 193 in its season-opener at Chicago.This years production is a significant drop-off for a Jackson- and C.J. Spiller-led backfield that finished second in the NFL last season with 2,307 yards rushing -- the teams best output since 1992. Then there was two years ago, when Spiller had a career-best 1,244 yards and finished second in the NFL by averaging a more than 6 yards per carry.I dont have the answer as to what and why we havent been able to run the ball the way that we are accustomed to, Jackson said. Were sitting here frustrated because we havent lived up to what we thought we were capable of doing.The Bills ground game has been so bad that the team has not had an individual player reach 100 yards rushing so far this year. The Bills have gone an entire season without a 100-yard rusher only three times, the last in 1979.And, Buffalo is coming off a game in which it managed 13 yards rushing -- the fourth lowest total in team history.Injuries have been an issue. Jackson missed two games with a groin injury and has also been bothered by a sore knee. Spiller broke his collarbone and missed seven games before returning last week.Centre Eric Wood said the offensive line hasnt done its part either.Really no excuses other than a lack of execution, Wood said. And a lot of that falls on us up front.Coach Doug Marrone is particularly disappointed by the play of his line. He is considering spending the off-season starting from scratch and retraining the unit.Buffalos running game could be in store for an off-season upheaval.Though Jackson has one more year left on his contract, Spillers future is uncertain. The Bills 2010 first-round draft pick is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent if he declines to pick up the option on the final year of his contract.Only time will tell, Spiller said, when asked if hes made a decision. I aint really focusing on that. Im just focusing on the Patriots.Its unclear what Spillers value might be in free agency because of the time he missed this season.Spiller discounted that as being a factor, saying he established his value in the previous four years.NOTES: DT Marcell Dareus missed practice because of a right knee injury and its uncertain whether he will play Sunday. ... CB Stephon Gilmores status is also uncertain because he is being monitored for a concussion. ... The Bills are off Thursday before returning to practice Friday.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Josh Sweat Jersey .com) - Will Conant booted a 39-yard field goal as time expired and Air Force played spoiler with a 27-24 win over 21st- ranked Colorado State on Friday.

Among the teams moves was trading one of the teams two third round picks, no. 83 overall, to the Chicago Blackhawks for Brandon Bollig, a six-foot-two, 223-pound left-winger who had seven goals, seven assists, and 92 penalty minutes in 82 games last season. http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Haloti-Ngata-Jersey/ . -- Byron Scott is taking over the Los Angeles Lakers with the vocal support of his fellow Showtime greats.PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman Kris Letang will play on Wednesday night against the Detroit Red Wings, more than two months after suffering a stroke. General manager Ray Shero says Letang has been cleared by team doctors. He says it was the 26-year-old Letangs decision whether to play again this season. Letang hasnt played since Jan. 27. He suffered the stroke two days later. TTests revealed a small hole in his heart, which doctors say could have contributed to the stroke. Michael Bennett Jersey. The hole hasnt been repaired, but Shero says the team is confident playing hockey didnt cause Letangs stroke.
