#1
Two Canadian snowboarders who were critical of Shaun Whites decision to pull out of the Olympic slopestyle competition were among eight riders who qualified Thursday for the events final. Custom Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys . Max Parrot posted the days best score, a 97.50 in his second run. Sebastien Toutant also made it through to Saturdays final as the Sochi Olympics opened with one of the new events debuting at the games. White, the American star known for his daring halfpipe tricks, withdrew from the event on Wednesday, saying he wanted to concentrate on winning his third straight gold medal in the halfpipe. He hurt his wrist during a training run on Tuesday but initially indicated he would not miss the event. His decision to withdraw was mocked by Parrot and Toutant on social media. In a since-deleted tweet, Parrot said he thought White was "scared" to compete and "knows he wont be able to win the slopes." "I just think me and Seb said something all the other riders would have loved to tell, but maybe are scared to tell," Parrot told TSN on Thursday. "He choked a couple contests this year with not really good reasons. With him here he has the potential to be...Why choke on it for nothing?" Toutant tweeted, "Its easy to find excuses to pull out of a contest when you think you cant win." Toutant also deleted his message, but clarified his stance after his runs on Thursday. "I think its sad for all Americans who trained hard for that spot," he added. "Cant replace him - pretty sad. If you think its too dangerous, go do something else." The slopestyle course drew criticism as being potentially dangerous and was modified after Norways Torstein Horgmo broke his collarbone on Monday. The event, making its Olympic debut, features riders doing tricks over rails and jumps, like skateboarders in a city park only down a snow-covered trail. Parrots first run was smooth, but for a dragged hand at the end of one of his jumps, and drew a score of 91.75. The reigning Winter X Games gold medalist was better on his second run, which had few obvious flaws. Toutant scored a 74.25 on his first run and qualified through his second with a score of 87.25. Canadian Mark McMorris, a two-time X Games gold medalist, fell on his first run and will have to qualify through the semifinals. McMorris, who suffered a broken rib at the X Games last month, pulled off a triple-cork on his second run but earned an 89.25, not among the four best riders in his heat. Americans Sage Kotsenburg, Ryan Stassel and Charles Guldemond will also have to try to qualify through the semifinals, which are Saturday. Moving directly to the final with Parrot and Toutant were Norways Staale Sandbech and Gjermund Braaten, Finlands Peetu Piiroinen and Roope Tonteri, Great Britains Jamie Nicholls and Swedens Sven Thorgren. Jackie Robinson Jersey . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell. Sandy Koufax Jersey . "I had a pretty good year," the soft-spoken Granberg told TSN.ca with a grin from the teams annual rookie tournament in London. A fourth-round selection in 2010, Granberg is worth keeping an eye on with NHL training camps rolling around in less than a week. The six-foot-two, 200-pound defender may not possess the wow-inspiring theatrics of fellow prospect Morgan Rielly, but nonetheless has a chance to contribute with the Leafs when all is said and done this season. http://www.ladodgersprostore.us/Maury-Wi...rs-jersey/ . The game marks the rare occasion when two homegrown running backs, Jon Cornish of the Calgary Stampeders and Andrew Harris of the B.C. Lions, will start in the West Divisions battle for a Grey Cup berth.SAN DIEGO -- Colin Kaepernick looks ready for his first full season as a starter. Mike McCoys San Diego Chargers look as if they could use a few more weeks of training camp. Kaepernick threw a touchdown pass to cap his only drive, and the San Francisco 49ers roughed up the Chargers 41-6 in the preseason finale for both teams Thursday night. Kaepernick faked an inside handoff and then threw a short sidearm pass to Quinton Patton, who deked rookie free agent Marcus Cromartie and completed the 43-yard scoring play. Coach Jim Harbaugh started the first-team offence of the 49ers (3-1), while McCoy sat his first-team defence. The Chargers (1-3) had a bad night. Backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst was sacked four times in the first half and third-stringer Brad Sorensen threw two interceptions in the second half. San Francisco linebacker Cam Johnson sacked Whitehurst twice and blocked a punt by Mike Scifres and recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown late in the third quarter. The defending NFC champion 49ers open at home against Green Bay a week from Sunday. The Chargers, whove missed the playoffs for three straight seasons, open at home against Houston a week from Monday. Chargers wide receiver Robert Meachem, who has a guaranteed $5 million salary, had four catches before sustaining a concussion. Hes been a forgotten man since dropping a potential touchdown pass in a 7-6 loss at Cleveland last season. Niners free agent pickup Lavelle Hawkins had a spectacular 45-yard touchdown play in the fourth quarter. A short pass from B.J. Daniels bounced off Hawkins hands and into the air, but the receiver grabbed it before being hit by rookie safety Jahleel Addae. Corey Seager Jersey. Addae didnt wrap up, and Hawkins swept to the left and finished the scoring run for a 34-6 lead. Kaepernick is heading into his first full season as a starter after making 10 starts last year and leading the 49ers to the Super Bowl, where they lost to the Baltimore Ravens. With Harbaugh playing his starters, the mismatch paid off as the 49ers moved 77 yards in seven plays for the score. Kaepernick completed 3 of 4 passes for 64 yards for a rating of 156.2. He didnt have any carries. Colt McCoy, selected as the backup last weekend after he restructured his contract, replaced Kaepernick and played into the third quarter. McCoy also threw a touchdown pass, a 5-yarder to Anthony Dixon in the second quarter. McCoy completed 8 of 15 passes for 56 yards. Daniels also threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to rookie Chuck Jacobs. Daniels had a 36-yard run on that drive. Whitehurst was 9 of 12 for 86 yards, with one interception. Max Starks, who apparently has lost the competition for the starting job at left tackle to King Dunlap, was repeatedly beaten and gave up three sacks. The other sack was allowed by right tackle Mike Harris, who played left tackle last year as a rookie. Brad Sorensen, San Diegos rookie third-string QB, was intercepted twice. San Diegos Nick Novak kicked field goals of 41 and 48. Chargers rookie linebacker Manti Teo was back in his walking boot as he watched the game from the sideline in a sweatsuit. Teo sprained his right foot in the exhibition opener against Seattle on Aug. 8. He Teo was out of the boot Tuesday, although he hasnt been cleared to practice.
