Speed was on full display for all CFL fans to enjoy in Week 2 of the 2014 season. [url=http://www.diamondbacksapparelsshop.com/paul-goldschmidt-jersey-c-6/]Paul Goldschmidt Diamondbacks Jersey[/url] . What had me thinking about this was the 108-yard interception return by newcomer Antwaun Molden. Truth be known, it was his first interception in his first start of his CFL career that peaked my interest. Initially, Molden was beat on a climb route by Brett Swain, the first year receiver for the Riders. Thats when we were introduced to Antwuans explosiveness and speed. He got on his horse and tracked down Swain to make a spectacular interception. Without his make-up speed, Saskatchewans offence is in the endzone, and at that time of the game, Moldens show of speed could very well have changed the complexion of the contest. Later on, with the Riders offense on the move, Molden was at it again. This time, he broke on a ball that Darian Durant should have never thrown, and this is coming from a guy who threw 211 picks, so I should know. Cant fault Durant, that happens. In this case, it was more about great anticipation and break on the ball timed perfectly. Then it was off to the races with Durant trying his best to maintain his angle, eventually making the speedy linebacker to ever so slightly alter his course to the endzone. Talk about changing the complexion of a game; Moldens incredible performance was a 14-point swing at the very least. I guess former CFL receiver Jason Armstead was right when he had tattooed SPEED on one calf and KILLS on the other. Molden was not the only player on the weekend displaying the ability to run fast. We saw a glimpse of what RB/REC Anthony Coombs brings to the table; raw-fluid speed. Im extremely disappointed to hear that Andre Durie is out with a broken collarbone for 6-8 weeks, but this Coombs kid is going to be fun to watch in his absence! Chad Owens was doing his thing whenever he touched the ball for the Argonauts. He is not only loaded with speed but tremendous quickness to boot; so dangerous and difficult to contend with. He put up phenomenal numbers that others only dream about but with Owens, its become the norm. Theres nothing normal about it, its special to be able to watch this guy play the sport of football. I enjoy everything about this guys approach, as should all CFL fans, young and old! The young ones can aspire to be like Chad and the older ones, like myself, can only dream about it. Taj Smith, the speedy wide receiver for Saskatchewan, got in behind the Argo defence for a touchdown with his speed, and was quickly tracked down by Molden, who showed his wheels once again. He walked down Smith and showcased what kind of speed he brings to the table. Now I know Smith will probably say he was shutting it down before he reached the endzone and thats why Molden walked him. I say to that, never let up and it wont appear that way and he was walking the speedy receiver down anyway. Friday Night Football made its 2014 debut this past Friday, and Gord Miller and myself witnessed speed by last years defensive player of the year, Chip Cox, on one of the coolest plays you will ever see. Scott Paxson, a second-year player from Penn State, picked off Kevin Glenn and instinctively optioned the ball over to No. 11 himself and it was a walk-in touchdown by one of the fastest in the league. Heads-up play, filled with athleticism from both defenders. When you were watching the RedBlacks take on the Bombers, I know yall had to see the speed of what could be the fastest player in the CFL, Chevon Walker. Although he did not break off a long one, you still witnessed brilliant speed on his 29-yarder. On the same play, watch the man responsible for Walker and you will see one of the most promising players in the CFL in Ian Wild. The second year linebacker has speed himself as he had to go fetch Walker and help usher him out of bounds in a hurry. Of course, Wild had fear as a motivator because Walker had leveraged him out of the backfield and like I said, Wild was in a trail position, but not for long. I know about fear and running fast. I ran for 5,031 yards in my time and most of those yards, I was running scared because at least one, maybe two or three big-bad dudes with bad intentions were coming and coming fast. Fear will make you run really fast and for me, speed varied depending on who was chasing me! Sometimes I was my 4.57 self and other times I was 4.1, like Raghib "Rocket" Ismail, who was the fastest of them all... or was that Marcus Grant or Waddell Smith??? So all this talk about speed, the speed that we witness, week in and week out in the CFL, where did you see speed this past week in the CFL? Whos the fastest today and whos the fastest of all time? Debate amongst yourselves!!! Ready Break!!! [url=http://www.diamondbacksapparelsshop.com/curt-schilling-jersey-c-16/]Curt Schilling Jersey[/url] . The Rangers announced after Thursdays 4-2 loss to the New York Yankees that they would purchase Williams contract from Triple-A Round Rock. The 32-year-old Williams was released by Houston earlier this month after going 1-4 with a 6.

Coach Jorge Sampaoli resisted naming any major surprises in the list published Tuesday at the site of Chiles football association. Chile is pinning its hopes on the recovery of Vidal.CHICAGO -- The Washington Nationals hit the halfway point of the season tied with Atlanta for the NL East lead. Adam LaRoche will take that. "I like our position in the standings and I like how our team is playing," LaRoche said after Washington swept a day-night doubleheader from the Cubs on Saturday. LaRoche and Wilson Ramos homered, Blake Treinen earned his first major league win and the Nationals beat Chicago 7-2 in a rainy nightcap. Gio Gonzalez pitched two-hit ball over seven innings in the opener for a 3-0 victory. In the second game, Washington tagged Jeff Samardzija (2-7) for six runs over five innings to salvage a four-game series split. LaRoche led off the second with a long drive to right for his 11th homer, and Ramos connected to start the fifth, sparking a four-run rally that made it 6-2. Making his fifth major league start, Treinen (1-3) allowed two runs and four hits in five innings. The right-hander was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse as the 26th man on the roster for the doubleheader. "It means a lot," he said about the win. "Im definitely excited, thats for sure." Ross Detwiler pitched three perfect innings for his first career save. The only runs for the Cubs came on a two-run homer by Luis Valbuena that tied it at 2 in the fourth, right about when the rain started falling. With two outs in the inning and Nate Schierholtz batting, play was stopped for 55 minutes. Once the game resumed, it didnt take long for the Nationals to regain the lead. Ramos connected on the first pitch of the fifth for his second homer, and Washington sent up nine batters in the inning. With two outs and a man on first, three straight singles by Anthony Rendon, Kevin Frandsen and Jayson Werth resulted in two more runs. First baseman Anthony Rizzo then let LaRoches hard smash get by him for an error, bringing in Frandsen to make it 6-2. "Coming out of the rain delay they jumped on me right off the bat, and then they hit some fastballs over the plate and hit them up the middle," Samardzija said. "Made me keep throwing pitches. Like I said, they did a good job. They were ready out of the break." In the first game, Gonzalez dominated in his third start back from the disabled list, outperforming Dalllas Beeler in the rightys major league debut. [url=http://www.diamondbacksapparelsshop.com/curt-schilling-jersey-c-16/]Curt Schilling Diamondbacks Jersey[/url]. Rendon had three hits, including a two-out double against Beeler in the sixth before scoring the games first run on a wild pitch. Rendon added an RBI triple off Justin Grimm and came home on a sacrifice fly by LaRoche against Wesley Wright in a two-run eighth. Denard Span chipped in with two hits and scored a run, and the Nationals snapped a three-game losing streak. Gonzalez (5-4) struck out seven and walked two while improving to 2-0 in three starts after missing a month because of inflammation in his pitching shoulder. Tyler Clippard worked the eighth and Rafael Soriano finished for his 19th save in 21 chances. "Obviously, coming (off) the DL and trying to work your way back is going to be a process," Gonzalez said. "Its not going to happen overnight. Its good to see, little by little, using fastball and changeup at the same time. Its good to know when you need them theyll be there." Beeler was about as good as Gonzalez. Called up from Triple-A Iowa as the 26th man, he pitched four-hit ball while allowing an unearned run in six innings. Beeler also singled in his first at-bat when he lined the first pitch he saw up the middle in the third, drawing big cheers from the crowd. "I was a lot calmer than what I thought Id be," he said. "I walked out there, took a deep breath, threw my warmup pitches, kind of looked around again, exhaled and I was like, All right, same game Ive been playing for the last 20 years." NOTES: Nationals OF Bryce Harper hit three homers and drove in five runs in a rehab game for Double-A Harrisburg. The 2012 NL Rookie of the Year is working his way back from a torn ligament in his left thumb. He went 4 for 5 as the DH against the Cleveland Indians Akron affiliate. Washington manager Matt Williams said hes not sure if Harper will play another game for Harrisburg on Sunday. The Nationals are optimistic he will return early in the week, if not Monday, when they open a three-game series against Colorado. ... The Cubs have their first scheduled Sunday off in 82 years because of the annual Pride Parade in Chicago. The last one was on June 19, 1932. Chicago played the Giants in New York on a Saturday and then went to Philadelphia on a Monday.
