The story of Leicester winning it is

CALGARY - Latvian pilot Oskars Melbardis made the race for the two-man bobsled World Cup crown a tight one early this season. [url=]Montravius Adams Jersey[/url] .Melbardis and brakeman Daumants Dreiskens won Friday at Canada Olympic Park in a two-run time of one minute 49.60 seconds.The Latvians moved into a tie atop the overall standings with Francesco Friedrich and Martin Grothkopp of Germany, who were second and just three-hundredths of a second behind the winners.First run there were some mistakes, but we focused on the second run, Melbardis said. It was a great run I think. We need to work on a better push, but its good and well see what happens in Europe.Olympic silver medallists Beat Hefti and Alex Baumann of Switzerland were third in 1:49.66. Melbardis and Dreiskens were second behind the Germans in last weeks season-opener in Lake Placid, N.Y.Justin Kripps of Kelowna, B.C., and Bryan Barnett of Edmonton were the top Canadians in ninth.I had a pretty rough week in training, Kripps said. Not driving super well, but I put together my two best runs in the race. Thats all I could do this week. Its better than last year.I was 13th here last year so at least Im moving in the right direction. I never find the speed on the home track. I have a love-hate relationship with this track.Calgarys Chris Spring and Lascelles Brown were 12th. Spring was Jesse Lumsdens brakeman when they won bronze last year in Calgary.Brown and driver Pierre Lueders won Olympic silver in 2006 and Brown was also part of Lyndon Rushs crew that won four-man bronze in 2010.So Spring, an Australian who earned his Canadian citizenship in 2013, was frustrated with their result Friday.I had full intentions of winning a medal here today and its just a terrible result for me, Spring said. That second run was terrible by my standards. Were well back from winning a medal here.Nick Poloniato of Hannon, Ont., and Alexander Kopacz of London, Ont., didnt qualify for the second run.Olympic womens champion Kaillie Humphries will race the two-woman sled Saturday and then make her World Cup debut as a four-man pilot with an all-male crew.Kripps will also pilot a Canadian sled. He and crew Barnett, Tim Randall of Burlington, Ont., and Reginas Ben Coakwell were fourth in Lake Placid. Browns will join Krippss crew Saturday because Randall injured his hamstring racing in Lake Placid.

[url=][/url] . -- During a players meeting following the All-Star break, Jermaine ONeal promised his teammates to play the rest of the regular season like he would never play again -- because he very well might not.Paul Merson believes Leicester winning the Premier League title at Old Trafford would be embarrassing for Manchester United and Louis van Gaal. The Foxes can clinch the title with a victory on Super Sunday, which would leave Manchester Uniteds hopes of finishing in the top four in tatters.Merson has, however, backed Louis van Gaals side to triumph in his predictions, and thinks it will be fitting if Leicesters remarkable story ends with them winning the trophy at home against Everton next week. If youre a Manchester United fan you dont want Leicester winning the Premier League there on Sunday, that would be the last thing you need, Merson told Sky Sports.If youre the manager of Manchester United and that happens youre in severe trouble. Louis van Gaal is under pressure as it is, I know theyre in the FA Cup final, but if this team get beat at home and Leicester win the league in front of 75,000 of their fans? They arent going to be happy with that. The pressure could increase on Louis van Gaal if Leicester win on Sunday They had it a few years ago [in 2001/02] when Arsenal went there and won it, and that was bad. But this would be even worse for them in my opinion.No disrespect, but little Leicester going to big Manchester United and winning the Premier League - its embarrassing Im afraid. I dont think it will happen, though, and I think Manchester United will win this game. Arsenal won the title at Old Trafford in 2002 I was very impressed with them in the first half of the FA Cup semi-final, and with Wayne Rooney playing a bit deeper theyre a betterr team.

Honestly, Ive thrown the book Im reading into the sea because of Leicester. Its been extraordinary, but this would be the ultimate story of all time. It would be unbelievable. Ander Herrera hopes Manchester United can spoil Leicesters title party Whats happening this season is an absolute miracle. If youre reading a book and it says a 5,000/1 shot wins the league, then all of a sudden youre on the last page and you win it at Old Trafford? You cant write that, its impossible.If Im being honest, though, youd like to see them win it at home against Everton. Their fans have been great this year and they deserve it.
