Chicago is the centre of the sporting universe this week, only the All Blacks and Ireland have nothing to do with it. New Balance 574 Aanbieding . The Windy City is basking in the drought-breaking glory of the Chicago Cubs who, after a 108-year wait, are finally World Series champions. The party is unlikely to subside for some time, but Chicagoans who do turn their minds to other things will be wise to embrace rugby as they have a chance to see one of the truly great sporting teams in action on Saturday.After setting a world record for consecutive Tier One wins, the All Blacks have set their sights on finishing the year unbeaten. Having romped through the Rugby Championship, disposing of Australia, Argentina and South Africa with ease, and Wales 3-0 before that, a four-Test tour in the northern hemisphere will seemingly hold few fears. Still, Australia troubled New Zealand just enough in Bledisloe III to show the All Blacks may be the slightest bit vulnerable -- providing you can play for the entire 80 minutes.And that will be the challenge for Ireland. Playing their first Test since a 2-1 series loss in South Africa, Joe Schmidts side will likely be a tad rusty. That is forgivable to a point, but New Zealand, given their expertise on turnover ball, wont be anywhere near as gracious.Team newsNew ZealandHaving experienced a wretched injury toll at lock, All Blacks coach Steve Hansen will blood an all-Blues second-row pairing in Jerome Kaino and Patrick Tuipolutu. Kainos shift from No. 6 means there is a just a second Test start for Liam Squire while a fit-again Sam Cane has replaced Matt Todd at No. 7. Aaron Smith returns at half-back after missing back-to-back Tests due to indiscriminate use of a disabled toilet, while George Moala and Waisake Naholo have also been awarded starts at outside centre and right wing respectively.Ben Smith, Waiseke Naholo, George Moala, Ryan Crotty, Julian Savea, Beauden Barrett, Aaron Smith; Joe Moody, Dane Coles, Owen Franks, Patrick Tuipulotu, Jerome Kaino, Liam Squire, Sam Cane, Kieran Read (captain).Replacements: Codie Taylor, Ofa Tuungafasi, Charlie Faumuina, Scott Barrett, Ardie Savea, TJ Perenara, Aaron Cruden, Malakai Fekitoa.IrelandJoe Schmidt has named an impressive line-up with veteran Rob Kearney getting the nod at full-back. That selection means Jared Payne will start from outside centre in a backline that features familiar faces Jonny Sexton, Conor Murray, Simon Zebo and Andrew Trimble. The pack also boasts plenty of experience with captain Rory Best and No. 8 Jamie Heaslip leading the charge.Rob Kearney, Andrew Trimble, Jared Payne, Robbie Henshaw, Simon Zebo, Johnny Sexton, Conor Murray; Jack McGrath, Rory Best (captain), Tadhg Furlong, Donnacha Ryan, Devin Toner, CJ Stander, Jordi Murphy, Jamie Heaslip.Replacements:Sean Cronin, Cian Healy, Finlay Bealham, Ultan Dillane, Josh van der Flier, Kieran Marmion, Joey Carbery, Garry Ringrose.Key matchup: Beauden Barrett vs Jonny SextonWhat in the world happened to Barrett in Auckland a fortnight ago? While his inaccurate goal-kicking came as little surprise, Barretts lack of timing and poor execution of fly-half play was unlike anything weve seen from him this season. Rather than condemn Barrett -- a fancy for World Rugby Player of the Year despite his Auckland shocker -- to the pine, Hansen has decided that performance was an aberration and backed Barrett to regain control of the All Blacks juggernaut. If Barrett can rediscover the form he has shown in just about every other match hes played this year, Ireland could well be in for a long night.Sexton doesnt possess the same attacking brilliance or the turn of speed as Barrett, but he is arguably more adept at steering a Test side around the paddock given his 64 Test caps. He knows what it takes to win the big games, too, as evidenced by his efforts in the British & Irish Lions 2-1 series win in Australia and Irelands back-to-back Six Nations triumphs of 2014 and 2015. Sexton will likely go to the air with regularity early, but he must take the line on himself as the match progresses - an area where the Wallabies Bernard Foley enjoyed success a fortnight ago.Key stats- Ireland have never beaten New Zealand, with their most recent encounter in 2013 ending in heartbreak after Aaron Cruden was allowed to retake a match-winning conversion after an 82nd-minute try.- Julian Savea will bring up his 50th Test cap; he has scored 45 tries to date.- This is just the second time Ireland and New Zealand have met on neutral ground, the first coming at Rugby World Cup 1995 when the All Blacks triumphed 43-19.WeatherChicago is set for a clear, sunny day throughout Saturday, with the temperature set to hover around a cool 12 degrees (Celsius) come kick-off.What they said:I listened to Joe (Maddon), the Chicago coach saying that curses and such things arent what make sport, its actually the process of getting across the line that makes it. So, I know that this Irish side is a good team, last time we played them they should have won and theyve only gotten better since then. - New Zealand coach Steve Hansen.Its really exciting, there was quite a buzz on the flight over. We were out getting coffee and met come Cubs fans, and Bears Fans, they were asking are we the Irish team, and they know about the game. Were expecting a huge crowd, a lot of Irish here and a huge sports town. All the guys are excited to play in such a cool city, and hopefully they come out in numbers and make a lot of noise to aid us. - Ireland half-back Conor Murray.VerdictIreland are capable of ruining New Zealands season of perfection, but that challenge will come when the two sides meet in Dublin in a few weeks time. Put simply, the Irish wont have had enough time together to trouble an All Blacks side that has been humming all year. No-one has got within 14 points of the world champions this season, and Ireland wont improve on that margin in Chicago this weekend. The Cubbies may have ended a 108-year wait for World Series glory this week, but this Test wont follow that same drought-breaking script.New Zealand by 17. New Balance 996 Heren .

R.J. Umberger scored twice to lead the Blue Jackets to a franchise-record for consecutive wins with a 5-3 victory Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Kings.LATROBE, Pa. -- At 5-foot-7, LaRod Stephens-Howling doesnt feel out of place during some of the Pittsburgh Steelers more size-oriented training camp drills. The running back has held his own during short-yardage and goal-line exercises and has looked right at home in "backs-on-backers" protection drills. It has helped that playing for the Steelers has made Stephens-Howling feel like hes home -- even if he didnt join the team until just this past off-season. A western Pennsylvania native who played at Pitt, Stephens-Howling is awash in familiarity during his first season with Pittsburgh. His hometown of Johnstown is about 45 minutes from the training camp site at St. Vincent College, and Stephens-Howling shared a practice facility with the Steelers while in college at Pitt. Even his new home stadium, Heinz Field, also is his old home stadium. Pitt and the Steelers share the venue. "Its a great feeling -- a homecoming feeling," Stephens-Howling said between workouts Saturday. "But after all that excitement gets out of the way, were still at training camp and were working hard to get a job on the 53. It doesnt matter where youre at, thats it." Stephens-Howlings roster spot would appear to be safe, even in a crowded backfield. A fifth-year pro, he was brought in to compete for third-down back and kick returning roles. Both are tasks he showed a proficiency for over four season (57 career games) with the Arizona Cardinals. A seventh-round pick in 2009, Stephens-Howling has amassed 4,067 yards and three touchdowns in the kick return game over his career in addition to seven touchdowns off plays from scrimmage. "Hes definitely given us some versatility," said Isaac Redman, who broke last seasons camp as the starting running back. "He can catch, and hes pretty quick. When you get him out in space hes hard to tackle. Youre not going to catch him from behind." Speed has always been the hallmark for Stephens-Howling, who led Pitt in rushing his freshman and sophomore seasons but backed up future NFL All-Pro LeSean McCoy late in his college career. Pure speed is what has made him such an attractive option as a returner. On offence, while lack of size has shied NFL teams away from considering Stephens-Howling as an every-down runner, an ability to catch balls out of the backfield helps make him an ideal third-down back. Lacking prototypical options at both kick returner and third-down back after last years 8-8 season, the Steelers signed Stephens-Howling as a free agent in April. "When I visited the Steelers, they talked about the opportunities they had at third-down back stuff and in return," Stephens-Howling said. "It looked good for me to come here and have the opportunity to compete for those jobs. At the same time its closer to home; Ive been across the country for four years so its nice to be closer to home." Stephens-Howlings father took him to the Steelers annual training camp night practice at Greater Latrobe High School when he was a kid. While in college, Stephens-Howling remembers frequently watching the Steelers practice froom a window in the practice facility Pitt and the Steelers share. New Balance 980 Fresh Foam. Although he has yet to appear in a regular-season game at Heinz Field, his first preseason game as a professional was there in 2009. Just four years later, hes the player at his position on the Steelers with the most NFL tenure. "Hes brought a lot of experience and helps out a lot already," said Jonathan Dwyer, Pittsburghs leading rusher last season. "Hes having a great camp so far. He brings a lot of exciting things to the table in the passing game and the running game. "Dont let his size fool you; hes a tough guy. He doesnt shy away form contact. Hes not scared of anybody." Stephens-Howling proved that Saturday when he was given the ball during short-yardage and goal-line drills. During one goal-line play he absorbed one of the most vicious hits of the practice, protecting his quarterback and allowing a touchdown pass. During individual blocking drills earlier this week, coach Mike Tomlin audibly enjoyed how the 185-pound running back was frustrating linebackers who often had six inches or more and at least 50 pounds on Stephens-Howling. "Blockings something I work on, and I try to get better everyday," Stephens-Howling said. "Im definitely not satisfied with my blocking right now, but as the games go on Im going to get better." In order to ensure a role in the backfield on third downs, he knows hell have to prove he can block as much as he will need to show he can catch. A career-high 17 of Stephens-Howlings 56 career receptions came last season. Coaches have talked about getting him the ball in space to take advantage of his speed. "Hes fast and he can also run the ball up the middle," Redman said. "Mostly, though, hes a good guy -- a genuinely good person -- and thats what we needed in our running back room. Personality-wise, he clicks right with us." The hope is he will on the field, too. Notes: The Steelers signed veteran OT DAnthony Batiste on Saturday and placed OT Nik Embernate on the waived/injured list. The 31-year-old Batiste had 10 of his 14 career starts last season for the Cardinals. He has appeared in 37 games over seven NFL seasons for six teams. The 6-4, 314-pound Batiste opened last season as the Cardinals starting left tackle and adds to tackle group that lacked depth behind projected starters Mike Adams and Marcus Gilbert. Embernate is an undrafted guard from San Diego State who sustained a knee injury earlier this week. ... Among the myriad players who sat out Saturdays practice for injury or personal reasons were TE Matt Spaeth, DE Brett Keisel, LB Jarvis Jones, RB LeVeon Bell, CB Cortez Allen, CB DeMarcus Van Dyke, CB Terry Hawthorne, LB Jason Worilds and LB Lawrence Timmons. "Im not going to get into the details on (minor injuries)," Tomlin said. "Many of these guys will be working their way back here in the next 24-48 hours." ... Tomlin ran another physical practice, saying the abundance of youth on the offensive and defensive lines has necessitated a camp with more live tackling and contact. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Shes only the second woman to sweep the three longest freestyle races at the Olympics and the first one to do it since the 1968 Mexico City Games.After winning four gold medals at the Rio de Janeiro Games and looking unbeatable, Phelps finally ran out of steam in what was the final individual race of his career -- unless he decides to come out of retirement again.The frenetic finishes in the swimming pool capped a day that included a big escape by the U.S. mens basketball team and a stunning loss by the womens soccer squad.Phelps was seeking his 23rd Olympic gold medal and his fourth straight in the 100-meter butterfly, but he was denied by Singapores Joseph Schooling, who got off to a blistering start and built a lead that even Phelps couldnt overcome.With Anthony Ervin winning the mens 50 freestyle and Maya DiRado taking gold in the womens 200 backstroke, the Americans would have had a clean sweep were it not for the silver by Phelps, the most decorated Olympian in history.Ledecky finished well before Jazz Carlin of Britain touched the wall for silver.

I strongly and firmly believe that.Said Sweden coach Pia Sundhage, who once coached Solo when she was in charge of the U.S. national team: Its OK to be a coward if you win.Carmelo Anthony, Kyrie Irving & Co. survived their second straight strong challenge at the Rio Games, fending off Serbia 94-91 when Bogdan Bogdanovic missed a 3-pointer from the left wing with 2 seconds left that would have tied it.Kevin Durant grabbed the rebound to keep the Americans unbeaten 48 hours after they barely escaped against Australia.On a day that began with another round of rain, South Americas first Olympics lingered under clouds of grief, doping and disrespect.-Brazils government declared a day of official mourning for a Rio Olympics police officer who died after being shot in the head making a wrong turn into one of the citys slums.-A Chinese swimmer, Polish weightlifter and Bulgarian steeplechaser have been sanctioned for doping offenses , which are being handled by the Court of Arbitration for Sport for the first time.-And in a serious breach of judo etiquette with political overtones, an Egyptian judoka refused to shake the hand of his Israeli opponent after his loss.Other highlights from Day 7:CLOSE CALLS : Rafael Nadal, the singles champion at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and Spain teammate Marc Lopez won the mens doubles title. Nadal also reached the semifinals in his bid for a second Olympic singles gold, overcoming his Brazilian opponent and a raucous flag-waving home crowd.BRONZE BOXER : Nico Hernandezs chance for a gold medal ended Friday when he lost to Uzbekistans Hasanboy Dusmatov. With a gnarly gash over his left eye, Hernandez had blurred vision and needed stitches. His consolation: his bronze medal in the light flyweight division ends a medal drought for the American boxers that stretched to 2008.PUIGS PUSH : Tennis player Monica Puig is one victory from Puerto Ricos first gold medal in Olympic history. Puig continued her surprising run by reaching the womens singles final, eliminating two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic 6-4, 1-6, 6-3.

SAN MARTIN, Calif. -- When Gerina Piller hit her tee shot into a hazard and double-bogeyed the ninth hole at CordeValle Golf Club on Friday during the second round of the U.S. Womens Open, one interested and knowledgeable member of her gallery wasnt worried.Shell find a way to get it back, said her husband, Martin, who plays on the PGA Tour. I dont really get nervous watching her. Her game is pretty good.Indeed, it is. While Martin looked on in shorts and a T-shirt, protecting his fair complexion with a sun umbrella, Gerina did what she has done often recently: get in contention to win a tournament. Piller rallied quickly after making a 7 on No. 9 with two birdies on the next three holes. Two bogeys on the closing stretch gave her an even-par 72 and 36-hole total of 142.Being 2-under, I dont think Im far off, Piller said. There are some tough holes out there, and the wind can switch at any second. Thats the great thing about the U.S. Open. It keeps a lot of people in it.Piller, 31, is within striking distance of her first LPGA victory and also giving herself a shot at moving into the top 15 of the Rolex Rankings, from her current 16th position, and making the U.S. Olympic womens golf team when qualifying is finalized on Monday. Lexi Thompson (No. 4) and Stacy Lewis (No. 8) have locked up berths on the U.S. team. Jessica Korda (No. 24) is in position to make a big move after shooting 4-under for 36 holes, while Brittany Lincicome (No. 25) hurt her chances for a late surge after a 75-72 start.With a strong finish, Piller can also vault past Bo-Mee Lee of South Korea, who entered the weekend ranked No. 14 in the Rolex Rankings but missed the cut with a 6-over 150I think it would be a really big deal for me, personally, Piller said earlier this week of the Olympics. I love my country. I love America. And nothing gives me more honor than to put on the Stars and Stripes. And to have that honor, to represent your country at an event like that, would be pretty awesome.The highlight of Pillers career came last fall at the Solheim Cup, when, with a dramatic American comeback hanging in the balance, she sank a 10-foot par putt to beat Caroline Masson as the U.S. rallied from far behind to defeat Europe.Thats something shell remember the rest of her life, Martin said. Anytime youre playing for your country, it just means more. It was a time where she clutched it up and did something. Not only was it great for her but it was great for all the other girls. For them to come back from that deficit was pretty remarkable.Buoyed by coming through under extreme pressure, Piller has had three top-three finishes -- and four other top-10s -- this season, but is still looking for her first-career win. Martin, meanwhile, hasnt experienced victory on the PGA Tour yet, but has five career Web.com Tour wins.I wwish I knew what that secret sauce was, Martin said. Nike Roshe Two Mujer. It seems like when you win a tournament, you save shots that you would normally waste. You get a ball up-and-down. Between finishing 10th and finishing first, theres not a ton of difference. Its frustrating when youre close to lead and dont pull it out, but at the same time, youre playing really well. And shes done a really good job of reminding herself that. Youre playing against the best in the world -- its going to be hard.Piller is trying to keep things simple and not let the Olympics situation complicate her mindset.That [the Olympics] is on the line, but thats something I cant control, Piller said. I cant control where I finish. I can control the process. And so thats kind of my main goal this week is just sticking with the process. And even with trying to win this tournament, thats obviously an outcome. And if I come in here giving every shot my all, with my ability I think that Ill be in contention and hopefully get my first win. And if I do, then that will definitely take care of that world ranking.If she does qualify for the Games, will she play given the concerns about health and safety in Brazil? She hasnt made up her mind yet, Martin said. Its kind of been like if she makes the team then shell cross that bridge. I dont know what shell decide. Knowing her, shell probably want to go and represent her country.The Pillers are spending the week at Juli Inksters home in Los Altos, California. Inkster, who captained the 2015 U.S. Solheim Cup team, is more than a Hall of Fame golfer and inspirational leader, according to Gerina.Shes actually a really good cook, believe it or not, Gerina said. I havent had a bad meal over there. Her chicken parm is pretty money.The murder of five Dallas police officers Thursday night was particularly tough on Gerina. The Pillers live near Dallas, where Martin was born. Gerinas step-father, Alan Stevenson, has been on the police force in Roswell, New Mexico, Gerinas hometown, for two decades.Its heart-wrenching, because police officers are humans, Piller said. Theyre not perfect. There are some who may do something wrong. They have less than seconds to make a decision. Im 100 percent with the police. My father retires this year. Im super excited for him. Hes done everything from working on the streets to doing polygraphs. Right now, he works on the task force. Hes a commander.On the weekend, playing a game, Piller will try to be in command of her skills.I think shes already kind of a star now, Martin said. The only thing thats missing is a victory somewhere. Shes good enough to play with anyone. Its just a matter of walking through the fire and doing it. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
Last fall, during the American Association championship series between the Winnipeg Goldeyes and Wichita Wingnuts, Amos Ramon was the hero so often, he was named playoff MVP. Custom Toronto Blue Jays Jersey . Wednesday afternoon at Shaw Park, Ramon was a hero once again. Ramons sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth scored Nick Liles with the winning run as the Goldeyes came back from a 3-0 first-inning deficit and beat the Wingnuts 4-3. With the win, the Goldeyes improved to 14-12, stole the rubber-match of this three-game series with Wichita and won their first three-game set since taking two-of-three from Laredo back on May 27-29. "It was a good win for us," said Goldeyes leadoff hitter Tyler Graham, during the post-game show on Safeway Goldeyes Baseball on Shaw TV. "We fell behind early, but we just kept chipping away and our pitching staff did a great job. We just kept grinding away and thats how you come back and win games like this." The Goldeyes fell behind in the top of the first inning as Abel Nieves and John Rodriguez singled and then Cole Armstrong, who is from Surrey, B.C., hit a three-run homer off Goldeyes starter Mark Hardy, who is from Campbell River, B.C.But Hardy settled down and the Goldeyes started to chip away at the lead. In the bottom of the first, the Goldeyes scored a run without a hit. Leadoff man Tyler Graham struck out, but reached first on a passed ball. He stole second, went to third on an errant throw by catcher Armstrong and scored on a ground out by Ramon. In the third, Graham and Ramon singled and on a double-steal they both moved up 90 feet. Graham scored on a ground out by Josh Mazzola. In the sixth, the Goldeyes tied it. Mazzola was safe on an infield hit, stole second, went to third on a ground out by Leonard Davis and scored on a two-out single by Fehlandt Lentini. Then, in the bottom of the ninth, the bottom of the order got the job done. With one out, No. 8 hitter Nick Liles singled, and then No. 9 hitter Nate Samson doubled to put runners at second and third. Graham walked and then Ramon hit his sacrifice fly to right to win it. "Throughout the game, there was plenty of life on the bench," said hitting coach Tom Vaeth, who took over as manager after Rick Forney was ejected for arguing a close play at first in the top of the seventh inning. "We believed we could come back and win this one." Forney became the third member of the Goldeyes to be ejected in the series – Vaeth was chucked in Game 1 and Mazzola was tossed in Game 2. Meanwhile, Vaeth was pleased with Ramons heroics and the bottom of his lineup. "Anybody who knows me, knows that the guys who are struggling and working hard, the guys at the bottom of the order, are my guys," he said proudly. "I feel for them more than anybody else when theyre struggling and I cheer for them hardest when things are going well. Today, they were the catalysts in this game. "And Amos? What can you say? He had good swings for the whole series. You have to have patience in your guys and we have patience. Were not where we want to be yet, but were getting there." Closer Patrick Keating (2-0, 0.84 ERA) came on in the ninth and earned his second win of the series, while Wichita reliever Lincoln Holdzkom (1-2, 3.09 ERA) suffered his second loss of the series. Goldeyes starter Mark Hardy pitched six strong innings, despite allowing three runs in the first. He pitched shutout baseball from the second through the sixth. Relievers Chris Kissock, Brendan Lafferty and Keating shut down the Wingnuts the rest of the way. Three Goldeyes had multi-hit games: Graham went two-for-four with two runs scored; Mazzola went two-for-four with a run scored and an RBI; and Liles went two-for-four and scored the winning run. The Fish will have Thursday off and then open a three-game weekend series with the Quebec Capitales on Friday night at Shaw Park. Russell Martin Jersey .

And its coming to your living room.In its latest foray into non-athletic sports -- does the name Chris Moneymaker ring a bell? -- ESPN has reached an agreement to broadcast the Drone Racing League (DRL) season. An introduction to drone racing will air Thursday night on ESPN2 and competition begins Oct. 23.Its must-watch TV, Matt Volk, director, programming and acquisitions at ESPN, said Wednesday. Were always exploring ways to deliver quality and exciting content. We see this as being an emerging sport with an emerging audience. Were excited to see how it does, but we feel good about its growth potential.Sky, which broadcasts to the United Kingdom and Ireland, and 7Sports, a sports business cluster in Germany, also will air 10 one-hour episodes of the five-race 2016 DRL season, including a winner-take-all world championship Nov. 20.Drone racing is simply the latest so-called extreme sport in this digital age, and ESPN and the DRL are banking on the rising popularity of the craft worldwide.We dont come with a built-in audience. Theres no hiding that, Drone Racing League CEO Nick Horbaczewski said. They see a long-term opportunity here. They know how engaging the content is. Its very attractive for a younger audience. The reaction is something very visceral for people.Theres a huge emergence going on right now of people who fly drones. This sport is all about that.Horbaczewski, who founded the DSL a little over a year ago, said drone racing has all the elements of auto racing and likens it to a real-life video game with a real scientific element to it.The tiny craft used by the DSL will be unlike the more than one million consumer drones out there buzzing around. They will be custom built by the DRL so that all are identical with the same power output. That means all pilots will be racing on a fair playing field, and they will be doing the actual flying -- not some pre-programmed GPS system.We want it to be a test of pilot skill rather than drone design, Horbaczewski said.Among those behind the controls once the season starts likely wont be that hot-shot kid next door who buzzes the treetops in the neighborhood. The DSL will select juust 12 elite pilots from around the world. Paul Molitor All Star Jersey. The winner of the championship will receive a contract to be a full-time professional pilot in the league next year with a salary.We find incredibly talented pilots, people who are very, very good at flying drones, Horbaczewski said. But sometimes they just cant manage their nerves. Theyre not a performance athlete. People who are emerging are real performance athletes who can perform under pressure.Each event will include a series of races around complicated aerobatic race courses over two days in a bracket-style elimination format. Heats will be one to two minutes long, and fans who tune in likely will enjoy them. Horbaczewski says about half the drones crash every heat, and onboard cameras will offer a birds-eye view of the action.You get a real rush, he said. Its a weird mix of the NFL and Formula One. You get that motor racing appeal.Without the human trauma.The amount of the carnage that goes on when youre slamming into walls at 80 mph when you miss a turn -- its exciting, Horbaczewski said. But theres no moral hazard like there is when theres a crash in an auto race.So far, drone racings Jeff Gordon has not surfaced. Whoever emerges as this years champion promises to be someone of that mold, though.This sport is exhausting for the pilots, Horbaczewski said. We only run a certain number of races because we cant push them beyond a certain point. It is physically and brain-powerwise a very intense sport. It takes unbelievable concentration and physical discipline. Its not totally non-athletic.Motor sports in America have been struggling to attract younger fans. The DSL is hoping to buck that trend.Our audience we know is younger, Horbaczewski said. I love Formula One, but watching the Monaco Grand Prix came down to one pit stop and one pass.Still, drone racing on TV?No way! Ive been trying to get them to broadcast what we do for 30 years. Theyre not interested, said 67-year-old Gene Soucy, a champion aerobatic pilot. I know why its going to work and why what we do doesnt. The average guy can go out and buy a drone and anybody can fly one.---Follow Kekis on Twitter: www.twitter.com/Greek1947 Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
