Well see where he is at the end of that and

Got your draft outfit picked out? Not yet, not yet. Authentic Utah Jazz Jerseys . I kind of got a taste of being able to pick a suit with the draft lottery, I went with the bow tie. I have to see my options and see what Im working with. Are you a big fashion guy? Yeah, Im into fashion. You know, I dont know how extreme Ill go for the draft but I think it will be something memorable at least. Do you remember the first time you realized you could make it to the NBA? I really never doubted myself making it to the NBA. When I realized it last year, we were in a hotel and the whole team was watching ESPN and they put up kind of draft board with the top ten players who were going to be available, and they had me going to the Lakers and right when that happened everybody started texting me and saying "when you going to L.A?" thats when I realized Im going have to think about it and make a decision. Being from Canada, are you a hockey guy at all? No, not really. I played lacrosse when I was younger and [Calgary Flames forward] Sean Monahan was one guy I played with. Hes probably my favourite player in the NHL, or [Buffalo Sabres forward] Tyler Ennis [laughs]. (Ennis shares the same name as this Buffalo Sabre/photo: Bill Wippert/NHLI via Getty Images) Was it tough leaving Syracuse this year? Yeah it was tough making a decision. It would have been easier if I didnt enjoy my time in Syracuse but they just embraced me there when I got there. I loved my teammates and the coaching staff and loved the city. It was tough to leave but for my career and my best interests I think it was best for me to enter the draft. Who will be your first text to after you get drafted other than your parents? Well, my parents will be there so I wont text them. I guess the last person who texts me because theyll be at the top [laughs]. Nah, my closest friends and family will be there with me in New York, so the first person at the top of the list will get the reply. Whats it like being in the NBA environment? Its interesting. To see the business part and the business side and all the media and all the things you have to do, Ive got a taste of it at Syracuse, but for the most part nobody really knows what goes on behind close doors. Just to see what players have to go through, not only what happens on the court, is a little bit different for me. Are you nervous at all? I am a little bit. Im just anxious to find out where Im going to end up.Authentic Joe Johnson Jazz Jersey .40 metres at the Drake Relays. Drouin, from Corunna, Ont., bested his own record of 2.38 metres set in Aug. Authentic Rudy Gobert Jazz Jersey . The 26-year-old Sobotka injured his left leg playing for the St. Louis Blues in a 3-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday. The Blues said he would not recover from the injury in time for the Olympic tournament. Every 30 seconds when a hurricane threatens, a U.S. Air Force Hurricane Hunter sends a burst of data to computers tracking the storm.

An Air Force C-130 was the first to signal that Hurricane Charley had become a category 4 powerhouse on Friday. The planes make multiple passes through the storms eye, dropping probes into the air to measure wind speed, barometric pressure, and the temperature of the air and the water below it.

But despite the technology available today, Charley proved how difficult the art of forecasting can be.

With hurricanes, each one has its own personality, said Lt. Col. Ron Marx, pilot of a hurricane hunter flight out of Keesler Air Force Base in Mississippi. Even if we fly in the same one multiple times, every time we go its different.

Hurricane Charley was a stern reminder of that. As late as Friday morning, some forecasts said there was a good chance the storm would hit Tampa, Fla., directly. But at the last moment, it made a slight turn to the right.

The storms path only shifted about 50 miles, but to people in that path, those 50 miles were crucial.

I never thought it was going to come right straight across and hit us like this, said one storm victim.

‘Well Never Have a Perfect Forecast’

Forecasters themselves know better than to be surprised by the last-minute surprises every storm offers. They issued hurricane warnings for the entire west coast of Florida thee day before landfall. Authentic Karl Malone Jazz Jersey.

Hurricanes make these kinds of wobbles all the time, said Ed Rappaport, a meteorologist at the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Its another reason why the warning area is larger than the storm itself.

The hurricane hunters send data from the storms center, while satellites provide views from above. The information is analyzed by more than half a dozen different computer models.

In Charleys case, probes from the C-130s reported that the waters of the Gulf of Mexico were in the high 80s — unusually warm, even for August. That probably boosted the storms strength.

But a hurricane is infinitely complex. If it changes course or intensity, meteorologists with todays technology may never know why.

After 18 years of flying through hurricanes, your respect for these things continues to grow, said U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Valerie Hendry, a hurricane hunter weather officer.

The National Hurricane Center said its predictions improve by a few percent every year. Still, the best computer models tend to miss by 40 or 50 miles — 40 or 50 crucial miles.

I wont tell lies and say Adrian is playing as well as Michael because clearly, he is not. Relive some classic encounters between MVG and Jackpot The likelihood is that Michael scores more consistently, not better. There will be legs where theyre both sitting on 41 or less after nine darts, and Adrian must put Michael under pressure. He must let Michael know that he cant run away with it.Adrian needs to take out the 104s and the 88s - if those combinations are not at their best hell get beaten. Michael is the one to stop, and thats no shock. Michael van Gerwen hits a bullseye checkout The extra legs benefit Michael. The longer format gives the better player a bigger chance of winning. If its over one leg, I would have a chance against Van Gerwen. Over 21 legs its unlikely, over 101 legs I would have no chance.Prediction: 10-8 to Van Gerwen.

Gary can go from average-to-brilliant in a leg-and-a-bit, whereas Phil gets stuck in a rut. Gary Andersons win over Raymond van Barneveld If Phil starts off in a rich vein of form and has a swagger, he will be hard to stop.Prediction: 10-9 to Gary, on the basis that Phil is not as composed as he once was. At the end of these long matches, you need composure.

Kenny Miller scored from the penalty spot and Camilo Sanvezzo came off the bench to add two late goals as the Whitecaps kept their playoff hopes alive with a 3-0 victory over the sagging Impact on Saturday afternoon.DENVER -- Early on, Stephen Strasburg didnt have his best stuff and yet the powerful right-hander tried to bear down to keep his team close. Almost paid off, too. The Washington Nationals loaded the bases in the ninth before falling 6-4 to Jorge De La Rosa and the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday. Strasburg (7-8) settled in after a shaky start, giving up four runs -- three of which were in the first -- and nine hits over 5 1-3 innings. "Giving up three runs early, I couldve easily shut it down," Strasburg said. "I didnt want to do that. I wanted to keep it as close as possible. Give the guys a chance to come back -- anything can happen here." And almost did. Closer LaTroy Hawkins got the first two outs in the ninth, before allowing RBI singles to Jayson Werth and Anthony Rendon to make it a 6-4 game. With the bases loaded, Hawkins struck out Ian Desmond to end the rally. "You have to tip your cap sometimes. He did a good job," Desmond said. "He made some pitches on me. "We did a good job battling back right there. We kept on grinding away. Ill take us in that situation a lot of times." Denard Span had four hits for the Nationals, who finished the season series 5-1 against Colorado. He was one of the few to have success against De La Rosa, who gave the Rockies a badly needed boost as they snapped a seven-game skid. "Jorge, another great outing. He did it again," manager Walt Weiss said. "Were scuffling like crazy and he takes the ball and gives us a great performance and wins the game." The Rockies tried a little bit of everything to break out of their funk. They wore their socks high and even engaged in a pregame staring contest. Turns out, the best cure for their slump was simply the left arm of De La Rosa. De La Rosa (11-6) struck out a season-high 11 as he pitched efficiently into the eighth inning. He kept the Nationals guessing by effectively mixing in a changeup with his 89-mph cutter. "All my pitches were working really good today," said De La Rosa, who allowed two runs -- one earned -- before being lifted for a reliever with one out in the eighth. Latrell Sprewell Warriors Jersey. "My command of all my pitches was really good today." The Rockies decided as a team to wear their socks high, just to try something new. Even Weiss followed the trend. This helped ease the tension, too: Prior to the first pitch, Rockies outfielder Brandon Barnes and Nationals reliever Aaron Barrett engaged in quite a stare-down, with both players standing near the dugout holding their hats over their chest to see who would blink first. After several minutes, Barnes finally gestured toward Barrett that they settle it with a game of rock-paper-scissor. Right after De La Rosas warmup pitches, home plate umpire Paul Emmel told Barnes go into the dugout, with Barrett throwing his hands up in triumph. "Well do any stare-down to win games, for sure," joked Nolan Arenado. Once again, De La Rosa mastered a park that typically isnt friendly to pitchers. Hes 42-14 lifetime at Coors Field. "This is the perfect park for me," he said. Usually, its the hitters saying that. De La Rosa had his pitches dancing all day. He struck out Bryce Harper three times. The Nationals were just 1 of 14 with runners in scoring position off De La Rosa. "He knows how to pitch here," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "Hes got a surprising fast ball when he needs it, but he relies on his changeup a lot. Thats a great strategy here. "Hes a good pitcher. He pitches well." The Nationals were without infielder Ryan Zimmerman, who went on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a strained right hamstring. "Its a pretty substantial strain of the hamstring," Williams said. "You never know how its going to react, so well just take it day by day. Its going to be a couple of weeks at least. Well see where he is at the end of that and go from there. He pulled it good." NOTES: Werth wasnt in the starting lineup because of a tender right knee. ... The Nationals are off Thursday before opening a three-game series in Cincinnati. Cheap NFL Jerseys nfl jerseys china ' ' '
