game with a fractured ankle suffered in practice

AUSTIN, Texas - Facing rapid-fire and persistent questions about his future, Ferraris Fernando Alonso would only smile and say hes making big plans and ready to win again. [url=]Nicolas Lombaerts Jersey[/url] .What they are exactly, hes not ready to say.Alonso on Thursday acknowledged speculation that the former two-time world champion could leave Ferrari after this season, his fourth with the most famous brand in motorsport.But other than calling it unlikely that hed do something as radical as take a year off, the 33-year-old Spaniard wouldnt budge when repeatedly pressed to give a hint of what hell be doing or which team hell drive for.I have a very ambitious plan in my head for my future. I think this is the best thing for Ferrari as well, Alonso said before this weekends U.S. Grand Prix. People will be very, very excited as I am. Im extremely happy.Late-season announcements of driver moves are nothing new in Formula One. But this season the series is awaiting announcements from two of its biggest stars in Alonso and Red Bulls Sebastian Vettel, the four-time defending world champion.Vettel has already announced hes leaving Red Bull. He has yet to say where hell drive in 2015, although there have been reports of a pending deal with Ferrari. Alonso is still under contract with Ferrari through next year, but has been the subject of a rumoured move to McLaren, where he spent one stormy season in 2007.Alonso seemed to enjoy the sparring with reporters probing for a hint of his destination. At one point, he scolded one who asked him why he was leaving Ferrari.I didnt say that. You are saying a thing that you dont know, Alonso said.But he also reflected on his years with Ferrari as a time for personal and professional growth. And he still wants to win a third world championship. McLaren is partnering with engine designer Honda next season in a bid to be competitive again in the new era of the hybrid turbo V6. McLaren and Honda had a dominant partnership in the late 1980s and early 1990s.Alonso won world titles in 2005 and 2006 with Renault, and came close to titles in 2010 and 2012 with Ferrari. But he hasnt won a Grand Prix since May 2013 and hasnt factored in the title chase in two years.At the end of the day, winning or not winning is a matter of being in the right place at the right moment. Getting the respect of everyone sometimes has more value, Alonso said.When I joined Ferrari, I didnt have the respect I have now. I didnt win and it was difficult, but I grew up as driver and a person as well. Definitely I want to win. I want to win a third title. Im sure I will have the opportunity in the next years, he said.

[url=]Jan Vertonghen Jersey[/url] . They find themselves trying to knock each other out in the Western Conference finals for the second straight year. The Blackhawks prevailed last year on their way to the Stanley Cup, and they have the early lead this time after taking the opener, 3-1. [url=][/url] . The post-season, Pierce said repeatedly, is no time to panic. And the Heat, apparently, are nothing to fear.For the first time since 1986 the “Battle of the QEW” is what will decide who wears the CFLs Eastern crown. The Toronto Argonauts (11-7) look for an opportunity to repeat as CFL champions when they host the surging Hamilton Tiger-Cats (10-8) on Sunday. (TSN, Noon et/9am pt). Over the season Rogers Centre hasnt been quite the advantage for the Boatmen, as they only boast a 4-5 record at home. The Ticats have had the Argos number, winning two of the three matchups between the clubs, which included a home-and-home sweep late in the season (33-19 in Toronto and 24-18 at Alumni Stadium in Guelph). The Argos play their first game of their postseason without their leading rusher Chad Kackert, who won last years Grey Cup MVP. Kackert, who only played eight games as he battled numerous injuries this season, will miss the game with a fractured ankle suffered in practice. His absence leaves the spotlight on quarterback Ricky Ray. Ray, who has yet to lose a playoff game as an Argo, is the 2013 Eastern Division nominee for Most Outstanding Player. He made the most of his limited appearances, putting up 2,878 yards, 21 touchdowns with only two interceptions and setting the CFL completion percentage record, by completing 77.2 per cent of his pass attempts in only 10 games played, having missed eight due to injury. Aside from the absence of Kackert, the Argos have a bevy of toys for Ray to utilize, including a pair of sub-six footers at thhe slot (say that five times quickly if you can) Andre Durie and Chad Owens, last seasons CFL Most Outstanding Player. [url=]Thomas Vermaelen Belgium Jersey[/url]. Ray also has the dazzling Dontrelle Inman and John Chiles making plays on the outside at receiver. The Argos defence has often been their strength but at other times their Achilles heel; they will certainly have their work cut out for them. The rotating quarterback carousel between Henry Burris and Dan LeFevour with a pinch of Jeremiah Masoli has worked for the Ticats as of late. Burris especially has been on the money against the Argos. In his three duels he threw for a combined 985 of his CFL-leading 4,925 yards, along with six TDs and only two picks. The Ticats look to exploit an Argos defence that is susceptible to damage on the ground. Running back C.J. Gable has rumbled through with a total of 325 all-purpose yards in three contests against the Argos. LeFevour looked to be a secret weapon unleashed against the Montreal Alouettes in the Eastern Semi-Final gaining 61 yards including the go-ahead score with a two-yard plunge into the end zone. Samuel Giguere, Andy Fantuz and Bakari Grant have been a physical and efficient group of receivers, all having snatched at least five catches against the Als defence in the Eastern Semi-Final. So who is going to win the Eastern Final and gain not only a chance at the Grey Cup, but bragging rights in what could be another classic in the history of these two teams? As always, its Your! Call.
