In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month, Erika L. Mike Matheny Jersey . Sánchez writes a tribute essay to?Olympian Laurie Hernandez.This summer the Olympics in Rio gave us the gift of Laurie Hernandez, the vibrant 16-year-old gymnast from New Jersey who won a gold medal in the team event and a silver medal for the balance beam. Shes one of the youngest members of Team USA and has quickly become an international star and a role model for girls everywhere.I dont think Ive ever seen a young Latina receive so much love and praise, and its been incredible to watch.Hernandez, of Puerto Rican heritage, has been honing her gymnastic skills since the age of five. Her dedication to her sport is palpable in her graceful powerful movements. She exudes a confidence on the floor that is, unfortunately, rare for a teenage girl.Its taken me a lifetime to be that self-assured.When I was Hernandezs age, I never saw anyone who looked like me on TV, let alone in sports. I was uncoordinated and dreaded any sort of physical activity. Part of my hesitation stemmed from the discomfort I felt with my own body.Like many young women, I was embarrassed of simply existing, of being me. Thats why Im so encouraged when I watch Hernandez. I lament that I didnt have that kind of poise and determination, but Im so grateful that she can influence future generations of young women.Unfortunately, brown girls are often discouraged from exercising outside because its considered masculine. My grandmother, for instance, once called me marimacha, which roughly translates to butch, simply because I liked to play outdoors.Instead of getting involved with after school activities, young Latinas are often obligated to do chores or take care of their siblings. Their responsibilities primarily reside in the home, and its considered indecent to be out in the streets.Despite the discouragement I received from my environment and my own self-doubt, in seventh grade I decided to join an after-school volleyball league. Initially I was proud of having challenged myself, but I regretted my decision as soon as I realized that I was absolutely terrible, incapable of ever getting the ball over the net. My teammates would groan whenever I missed a shot. Then, as a freshman in high school I joined the track team, but quit after a few weeks because I was so slow my races didnt even count. I felt like a failure and decided I wasnt athletic, that it wasnt a part of who I was.Hernandez is the opposite of my younger self, and that is so refreshing to me. Not only is she athletically talented, her exuberance and sunny disposition add to her extraordinary presence. Its no surprise that her nicknames include Baby Shakira, and Human Emoji.She moves with personality and attitude. In addition to her gymnastics career, Hernandez is also a skilled dancer, performing flawlessly on Dancing with the Stars. Its motivating to watch her move her body with such joy. I spent so much of my youth shrouding myself and grappling with depression that its heartening to see a young woman who isnt afraid to celebrate her own talent and physique.Im now in my 30s and am so thrilled to see that times have changed for young girls of color. Latinas have become more visible in media in general, and the Internet has made it easier for girls to pursue their interests and find positive representations of themselves.Though she is much younger than me, I consider Laurie Hernandez a role model. She is the embodiment of Brown Girl Magic. In an interview this summer she stated, I want to make sure I always show off my smile and have a positive attitude the whole time, whether its during a performance, practice or doing an interview. This outlook is something we should all try to emulate.I hope that Hernandez will inspire a generation of Latina girls to pursue sports, to become comfortable with their bodies, to experience the exhilaration of physical transcendence.Erika L. Sánchez is a poet, essayist, and fiction writer. She is the author?of Lessons on Expulsion (Graywolf 2017) and I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter (Knopf Books for Young Readers 2017). Her nonfiction has appeared in Al Jazeera, The Guardian, Rolling Stone, and many other publications. She has received a CantoMundo Fellowship, a Discovery/Boston Review Poetry Prize, and a Ruth Lilly and Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Poetry Fellowship from the Poetry Foundation. Trevor Rosenthal Jersey . Wilson hit Schenn from behind during Tuesday nights game in Philadelphia, earning a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct. He has a phone hearing with the department of player safety, which limits any potential suspension to five or fewer games. Bud Norris Jersey . Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as the Rangers shook off a late tying tally and beat the Maple Leafs 2-1 Monday night. http://www.cardinalsrookiestore.com/Cardinals-Lance-Lynn-Kids-Jersey/ . It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night. The Los Angeles Kings are limping to the end of their five-game road trip, but theyre not alone in injury woes.The Colorado Avalanche are nursing some key injuries as well.The Kings (7-8-1) are expected to be without Anze Kopitar due to an upper-body injury while the Avalanches leading scorer, Matt Duchene, is still out with concussion-like symptoms. That means two of the most important players for both teams wont be on the ice when they meet at Pepsi Center on Tuesday night.Kopitar is not officially ruled out for the game but according to the team website, he is taking anti-inflammatories and is in a holding pattern, and until the area improves he wont be able to do much.Thats a tough break for a team that is already without its No. 1 goaltender, Jonathan Quick, for a significant stretch. Backup Jeff Zatkoff left Fridays game with groin spasms so veteran and former Avalanche top goalie Peter Budaj, who started the season in the American Hockey League, will probably start against Colorado.Budaj has been in net for all seven of the Kings victories, and hes looking forward to playing against Colorado.Its great to come back, he told the teams website. I think Montreal is definitely a special place. Id been there three years but Colorado is more like my home -- I mean obviously Im Slovakian so thats my home -- but I lived here, I started my professional NHL career here, so its a very special place.Budaj will face a team struggling in coach Jared Bednars first season at the helm. The Avalanche (6-8-0) are coming off a 2-0 home loss to Boston on Sunday in which they were outshot 44-21. It was the fourth time this season Colorado has been shut out, and the second time at home.The Avalanche have just 17 goals in their last 12 games and are 3-for-25 on the power play in the last five games.Not having Duchene for the second straight game will hurt. Miles Mikolas Jersey. He was scheduled to skate Monday but didnt feel well enough to get on the ice. The hope is he can be out for the morning skate Tuesday.He didnt feel he was ready to skate (Monday) morning with the group, so (the training staff) gave him the morning (off) to see what comes of it (Tuesday), Bednar told HockeyBuzz.com Monday.Colorado is going to have lineup changes for the game against Los Angeles. Forward Blake Comeau is back after missing four games with a groin injury and A.J. Greer, who made his NHL debut Sunday as an emergency call-up, will be back in San Antonio of the AHL.In addition, defenseman Patrick Wiercioch is expected to replace Eric Gelinas in the lineup, but Colorado still has to fix its offensive woes.Were not getting enough shots through to the net is one issue from our blue line, Bednar told HockeyBuzz.com. We can do a better job of finding some lanes and getting some playable pucks down to the net. A lot of it is some fancy plays, east-west plays, when we can be driving the net more. Its what teams are doing against us and having success.After Sundays shootout loss in Winnipeg, the Kings are 1-2-1 on their road trip and could finish .500 with a win Tuesday.The Avalanche are trying to even their record on this four-game homestand before heading out for three games. Getting the offense going might be as simple as scoring a few goals to get the confidence back.Sometimes when you go through scoring slumps you start to maybe press a little more, Comeau told HockeyBuzz.com. I think its going to take one game where everythings clicking, where we get some greasy goals, get the confidence back and go from there.

Premiership contenders Melbourne have hung on to claim a desperate 20-16 NRL win over a gritty Newcastle at Hunter Stadium on Sunday. Joseph Blandisi Jersey .The Storms Fijian finishers Marika Koroibete and Suliasi Vunivalu were the difference, crossing for three of the sides four tries and coming up big in defence on several occasions.A spectacular try from Knights fill-in fullback Jake Mamo three minutes from fulltime set the game up for a grandstand finish.Mamo leapt over Storm fullback Cameron Munster to snatch a Jarrod Mullen kick out of the air, scoring his second try of the day next to the posts to put the Knights within striking distance.But ultimately it was too little too late for the Knights, who lacked the polish to finish off the match.Munster would make amends a few minutes later when he defused another bomb as Mamo was racing through on what would be the Knights last roll of the dice.The Storm momentarily move to the top of the NRL ladder with the victory, their 10th win in 11 games.It was the Knights 11th straight loss and they now appear destined for a second consecutive wooden spoon.Newcastle dominated territory and enjoyed a 70 per cent share of possession in the opening 20 minutes, but couldnt manage to crack the Storm line.Koroibete turned defence into attack in the 11th minute when he latched onto a spilled ball from Mamo and raced 85 metres to score.Newcastle finally turned possession into points 10 minutes later when Mamo, who was filling in at fullback for Dane Gagai, took a short ball from halfback Trent Hodkinson and touched down to score.The video ref had a look at a possible obstruction, but ultimately gave the Knights the green light, much to the chagrin of Storm skipper Cameron Smith.But the Knights lead was short-lived. Only three minutes later Vunivalu latched onto a Munster cut-out pass, beating two defenders to touch down for his 17th try this season.After halftime, Koroibete scored his second when he steamrolled over Knights winger Brendan Elliott to score in the corner.The teams then traded tries before Mamo sailed past Munster to score and set the game up for an exciting finish. Jimmy Hayes Jersey .C. -- Kemba Walker and the Charlotte Bobcats got off to a fast start, and the Sacramento Kings were never quite able to catch up. Adam Henrique Jersey .Y. - New Orleans forward Anthony Davis was chosen Friday to replace the injured Kobe Bryant in the NBA All-Star game that will be played in his home city. http://www.devilsauthority.com/authentic-miles-wood-devils-jersey/ . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth.

There will be no colorblind game this year. http://www.steelersrookiestore.com/Steelers-Mike-Mitchell-Jersey/ .?Nike unveiled new Color Rush monochromatic uniforms for all 32 teams on Tuesday, but also indicated that some teams will wear all white during Thursday night games if the matchup of color uniforms would cause issues for the approximately 10 million Americans who are colorblind.Last November, the Buffalo Bills wore all red against the New York Jets, who were in all green, making the teams nearly indistinguishable to colorblind viewers.?This year, the Bills will again wear all red, but the Jets will be in white when the program kicks off Thursday.Nike brought in doctors from Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York to review which Color Rush matchups would be problematic for people with colorblindness.Other teams that will wear white include the Cleveland Browns,?since their all-brown uniforms would blend with the Baltimore Ravens purple, and the Los Angeles Rams against the Seattle Seahawks, because distinguishing yellow from green would be an issue.Other teams will wear all white on the field because their primary Color Rush color is the same as their opponents. The Atlanta Falcons will wear white against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Arizona Cardinals will wear white against the San Francisco 49ers, and the Houston Texans will wear white against the New England Patriots.Six teams -- the Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants and Oakland Raiders -- chose all white for their Color Rush uniforms.Three teams -- the Indianapolis Colts, Washington Redskins and Detroit Lions -- wont wear the Color Rush jerseys on the field because Thanksgiving games arent part of the Color Rush program this season.Nike will still sell the full color jerseys for all teams at retail.Last season, only eight teams took part in the program.The Color Rush program allows Nike to take risks and sell more gear to further help make money from the companys official deal as the NFL apparel supplier, which began in 2012 and, through an extension, goes through the 2019 season.Every cent the NFL makes from the royalty of the Color Rush uniform sales at retail will be donated to the NFL Foundation, which funds youth health, safety and wellness programs. The first $500,000 will go toward replacing football equipment that youth and high school programs lost in the recent Louisiana flooding. http://www.steelersrookiestore.com/Steelers-Arthur-Moats-Jersey/ . Duchene scored two goals and had an assist, helping the Colorado Avalanche beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 on Friday night to match the best 10-game start in team history. http://www.steelersrookiestore.com/Steelers-Eli-Rogers-Jersey/ . -- Jakob Silfverberg is making himself right at home with the Anaheim Ducks, scoring four goals in his first four games. http://www.steelersrookiestore.com/Hats/ .com) - Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer were easy first-round winners Tuesday at the Australian Open. ARLINGTON, Texas -- Both the Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers feel like they have winning pieces for a deep postseason run this year.Theres no doubt the Indians do in Mike Napoli and no one knows that better than Texas. Napoli, who went 0-for-3 in Thursdays 9-0 Texas win, has been to the postseason seven times since the 2007 season. Three of those seasons were with the Rangers and another resulted in a World Series title with Boston in 2015.Now Napoli has a chance at an eighth postseason and another World Series with Cleveland. And while Napoli isnt the sole reason the teams hes played on have gone to the postseason, hes certainly been a big contributor.You know its another year, another playoff run, Napoli joked Monday.The Indians have been all smiles since signing Napoli too. Hes leads the Indians in home runs (29) and RBI (87). His RBI total is sixth in the American League and his homer total has him tied for 10th. Its a product of Napoli playing every day and enjoying his time in Cleveland on the field and off the field, where his Party at Napolis t-shirt has become a must-have item for Cleveland fans.Hes been everything manager Terry Francona could have hoped for after talking with Napolis former teammate Dustin Pedroia about him in the offseason.In my book, getting the endorsement from Pedroia is a high mark, but I tell you what, its been that and then some. Hes been, you take the numbers, which are tremendous, but his will to compete every day, regardless of what the weather is, or how he feels, its been a pleasure. http://www.steelersrookiestore.com/Steelers-John-Stallworth-Jersey/. His impact in a clubhouse for a team thats been to the postseason just one time in the last nine years may have more of an impact than the numbers hes delivered from the cleanup spot.Im sure there are a certain number of people that have the ability to take people one direction, Francona said. Hes one. I think theres a certain number they certainly look up to him. There are probably a few others that are scared of him. Thats OK, but like when he practices, he practices right. Hes been a pleasure.The Rangers dont have any complaints about their newest addition either. Outfielder Carlos Gomez homered in his first at-bat with the club Thursday to key the win.Like Napoli, Gomez provides spark with his play on and off the field. While his fiery personality may have rubbed some wrong in his previous stops, its part of him and the club liked what they saw Thursday.This is an energy guy, Texas manager Jeff Banister said. Hell give you a lot of energy. Hes going to excite you. He pushes the envelope, which I dont mind. Weve got some guys that do that already. I think hell fit in in that department. And hes got passion for the game and he wants to win.

ST. Yadier Molina Jersey . LOUIS -- Detroits Frans Nielsen had no doubt who was the difference for the Red Wings on Thursday night: goalie Petr Mrazek.Henrik Zetterberg scored in the eighth round of a shootout to give Detroit a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues. Zetterbergs goal gave the Red Wings a six-game winning streak.I think the goalie stole the game for us, said Nielsen, who scored the only goal in regulation for Detroit. I dont think weve been perfect but we found a way to win.That is what Mrazek found important.This was a huge win on the road for us, Mrazek said. St. Louis is a very good team. You know in the first period we didnt play how we wanted to play but from that second half of the game, we were better.In the shootout, St. Louis first shooter, Alexander Steen, scored but then Vladimir Tarasenko, Kevin Shattenkirk, David Perron, Nail Yakupoc, Robby Fabbri, Patrick Burgland and Dmitrjij Jaskin all came up short.I still think we could have pulled off some more moves, some better moves to give us better scoring chances, Shattenkirk said. We need to bury our chances.Gustav Nyquist scored on Detroits second attempt but Nielsen, Dylan Larkin, Andreas Athanasiou, Tomas Tatar, Riley Sheehan and Darren Helm all missed.St. Louis had the better chances in overtime. Center Jaden Schwartz missed a wide-open net early in the extra session. Jori Lehtera was stopped on a breakaway midway through the period by Mrazek.We played really well and had a lot of good stuff but we dont finish, St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said. Weve got to look at whats working and whats not working. Youve got to finish at the end of the day.Were scoring one goal and getting points. Thats a hell of a feather in these guys caps but youre going to have score goals in this league.Fabbri was called for hooking with 19 seconds left but Detroit could not cash in. The Red Wings outshot the Blues 3-2 in the overtime.We found a way to grind it out, Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. We had a big short-handed goal and it was big for us to get the two points.The Blues and Red Wings have played to overtime in four of their last five meetings. The teams split their games last season with the road team winning each time.The Blues scored first at 2:31 of the second period on a goal by Shattenkirk. The puck came to Shattenkirk after Berglund won a faceoff. Shattenkirk sent in a wrist shot and the puck deflected in off the skate of Nielsen.Nielsen got it back for Detroit on a short-handed goal, tying the game 1-1 at 13:54. Helm got a loose puck at the top of the slot. He dropped the puck to the trailing Nielsen, who got around Shattenkirk and beat goalie Jake Allen with a backhand shot.St. Louis outshot the Red Wings 14-4 in a scoreless first period. Mrazek made two standout saves in the period, thwarting the Blues, who had a 23-15 shot advantage after two periods.Weve got to find a way to get wins, Allen said. Youre not going to win every single game in a shootout but that was a tough one tonight.Game notes Detroit LW Thomas Vanek sat out the game with a lower-body injury. The Red Wings listed him as day to day. ... LW Justin Abdelkader was back for the Red Wings after missing the last two games with a lower-body injury. ... Lehtera was back in the lineup after missing four games with an upper-body injury sustained in a 3-2 win against the New York Rangers on Oct. 15. To make a roster spot for Lehtra, the Blues put Magnus Paajarvi on waivers. ... Former Blues D Barret Jackman dropped the ceremonial first puck. Jackman spent 14 years in the NHL, 13 with the Blues. He signed a one-day contract to retire a Blue on Oct. 4 at Scottrade Center. Jackmans first game as a Blue was in a Stanley Cup playoff game against the Detroit Red Wings on April 14, 2002.UP NEXT:Red Wings: Will play visiting Boston Bruins on Saturday.Blues: Will play visiting Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. Chris Carpenter Jersey . Halladay signed a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday that allowed the veteran right-hander to retire as a member of team with which he broke into the majors and spent the bulk of his distinguished 16-year career. Jedd Gyorko Jersey .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. http://www.cardinalsrookiestore.com/Cardinals-Whitey-Herzog-Kids-Jersey/ . Still, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke thought taking him out before the fifth inning was an unusual move. "Im looking up at the board and hes got two hits given up and one run, and Im taking him out after the fourth inning," Roenicke said. TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- After starting season 4-0 -- all four wins at home -- No. 25 Florida States first road trip of the season ended 1-1.And by the time they take the floor Monday night for the ACC/Big Ten Challenge against Minnesota, the Seminoles could be out of the poll as quickly as they got in.That will be up to the AP Top 25 voters, who placed Florida State (5-1) among the countrys elite for the first time since the 2012 season last Monday. But the Seminoles were upset by a 2-2 Temple team in the semifinals of the NIT Season Tip-Off on Thanksgiving, despite leading by as many as 18 points in the second half.They rebounded in a big way a day later, handily beating Illinois in the third-place game, despite some noticeable errors in their play.Right now, were going through some growing pains. We have guys missing assignments, not quite sure where to be, said Florida State head coach Leonard Hamilton, whose top two scorers are a sophomore and freshman. But Im hoping we can continue to win as we grow up.Florida State and Minnesota (6-0) met 11 times previously -- five of those ACC/Big Ten Challenge -- with the Seminoles owning a 3-2 edge in the Challenge, which is in its 18th year this season. The Golden Gophers, however, won the last two meetings, the most recent of which was a 71-61 victory Dec. 3, 2013.Florida State sophomore guard Dwayne Bacon leads the team in scoring at 18.2 points per game while true freshman forward Jonathan Isaac -- the crown jewel of the Seminoles 2016 recruitinng class -- is every bit as good advertised to start his career, averaging 15. Bud Norris Jersey. 3 points.Isaac and Bacon are the only two players to reach double figures in all six of the Seminoles six games.The Golden Gophers are paced by guard Amir Coffey at 15.9 points.Mondays contest will mark Minnesotas first game away from home, and head coach Richard Pitino hopes his team is ready for it.It gets a lot tougher now going on the road, so well see how we look with more adversity, I guess, Pitino said following their 57-45 win Saturday night against Southern Illinois.It remains to be seen if Minnesota will have the services of starting center Reggie Lynch. The 6-foot-10 Lynch, who averages nine points and 3.6 blocks, sat Saturday with an ankle injury.Florida State will wear turquoise uniforms against Minnesota on Monday to raise awareness for bringing sport to Native American and Aboriginal youth. It marks the seventh time -- but the first time this season -- the Seminoles will wear the special uniforms.The Seminole Tribe of Florida approached us about this program and we are honored and excited to wear these unique uniforms, Hamilton said. The color is significant as it is deeply symbolic of friendship and community in the Native American culture.Florida State first wore the turquoise uniforms in their 89-61 win over UT-Martin in Tallahassee on November 17, 2013.

ST. Mike Adams Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Alfredo Aceves had another successful spot start. Aceves threw six solid innings, Daniel Nava homered and the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1 on Wednesday night. "Ace gave us a huge lift today," Boston manager John Farrell said. "He did an excellent job, and the bullpen came in and was stellar. This was a very good series to win here and Ace had a lot to do with that." Boston won two of three in the series, which dropped the fourth-place Rays five games behind the Red Sox. "They did a nice job against us because weve been scoring a lot of runs," Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. "Theyve gotten us this year in a lot of close games and we have to figure out a way to beat them." Aceves (3-1), recalled before the game from Triple-A Pawtucket, allowed one run, four hits and four walks. This is the right-handers third stint with the Red Sox this season. "He came up today, he kept us in the ballgame, and won it for us," Boston catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said. Aceves allowed one run over six innings in another spot start on May 27, a 9-3 win over Philadelphia. Nava put the Red Sox up 2-0 on a third-inning, two-run homer off Chris Archer (1-2), who gave up two runs, four hits, four walks and struck out seven over four innings. The Rays rookie right-hander exuberantly left the mound after striking out Nava with the bases loaded to end the fourth. "He was into the game just as we were into the game," Nava said of Archer. "I just saw him jump up and down after that. Obviously it was just emotional. Hes just out there competing, wanting to win. I get that. It threw me off guard, thats all." Archer was making his third start this season, and appearing in ninth career big league game. "I was pretty amped," Archer said. "I was just competing and I wasnt holding anything back. When I do that, its not towards the other team." Evan Longoria got the Rays within 2-1 on a solo homer in the sixth. He has gone deep in three consecutive games after homering just once over his previous 26. Andrew Bailey, the fourth Boston reliever, pitched the ninth for his seventh save in nine opportunties. After Craig Breslow allowed a two-out double in the eighth Kelly Johnson, Koji Uehara entered and struck out Longoria. Jacoby Ellsbury extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a single and scored on Navas two-out shot in the third. He also stole two bases in the game, giving him 29 for the year. Ellsbury has scored a run in 10 consecutive games, and stolen a base five straight games.
