Week 17 is a chaotic time in the NFL. Luckily for viewers of the Chiefs’ win over the Chargers on Sunday, CBS announcer Kevin Harlan offered a helping hand.Kansas City entered the day needing a win over Los Angeles and a New England loss to Miami to clinch a first-round bye in the AFC. With both games coming down to the wire, Harlan chipped in to provide play-by-play updates of both games as they unfolded.

Moscow, Russia | AFP | Former Russia coach Leonid Slutsky has some blunt advice for the World Cup hosts: admit that you are not a “footballing nation” and move on.Slutsky’s stark assessment came in the wake of two humbling home defeats to Brazil and France last month.Pundits and the media appeared ready to shrug off the 3-0 beating by Brazil as something Russia might expect from the five-time world champions.But the mood soured considerably following a listless 3-1 loss to a French team that were not at their best.Slutsky appeared on a football programme on Monday to defend his assessment that Russia were simply not very adept at the sport.“When I say that we are not a footballing nation, I do it so that we can figure out why,” Russia’s Euro 2016 manager said.“The fact that we are not the strongest team in the world is obvious to everyone. It is very important to admit this in order to move on.”Slutsky then took the unorthodox step of comparing the state of Russian football to alcoholism.“This is like in Alcoholics Anonymous, when you come in and say: ‘I am so and so and I have a problem’,” the 46-year-old said.“This is where the recovery and some sort of progress begins.”Slutsky is a genial personality who gained a strong following among fans when he led CSKA Moscow to three domestic titles between 2012 and 2016. But his Russia side were knocked out of Euro 2016 in the group stage and he was replaced by Stanislav Cherchesov that same year.The pressure on Cherchesov to — at the very least — secure Russia a place in the last 16 of their first home World Cup is immense.A new crisis in relations between Moscow and the West has only added political significance to the occasion.Cherchesov has done his best to lift team morale and find the silver lining from Russia’s latest losses.The former Spartak Moscow goalkeeper said on Monday that Russia needed to play former world champions to figure out where they stood.He also reminded supporters that Russia lost just 1-0 to Argentina and drew 3-3 with Spain in November.“We accomplished the things that we had set out for ourselves,” Cherchesov told Match TV.“It is just a shame that our third game with Brazil did not come right after the Spain one.”Russia and Uruguay are considered favourites to progress from a World Cup Group A that also includes Saudi Arabia and Egypt.But Slutsky said Russia should set themselves longer-term goals.“I have spent a lot of time thinking about how we can use the legacy of the World Cup,” he said.Share on: WhatsApp
The Nelson Leafs just lost another Murdoch Division battle Saturday night.Tuesday at the NDCC Arena it doesn’t get any easier as the Murdoch leading Castlegar Rebels, a team the Leafs have yet to defeat this season, invades the Heritage City for a mid-week Kootenay International Junior Hockey League clash.The Rebels, losers of just six games this season, hold a commanding 21-point advantage over the Green and White.Game time is 7 p.m.
“Our team had a great season all around but we grew more consistent the more we played as a team,” May explained when asked about the remarkable seaosn.”Our pitchers did very well this year with Jordan McLeod being very consistent all year.”Benoit Thibault got the start for Nelson before giving the ball up to McLeod.The offence was led by Benoit Thibault and Chase May with Justin Lasichuk and Maida also providing offensive spark for Nelson.Nelson, which dispatched Castlegar in the semi final to reach the championship, finished the season with a 13-4-2 record, edging out Trail Athletics for the regular season title.Thursday’s win was also the first time this season Nelson was able to get the better of the Silver City squad.”We never beat the A’s during the regular season so this was a great win for our team,” said May.”Although we struggled in a few games our hitting was pretty consistent all year,” May added. Nelson combined the strong pitching of Benoit Thibault and Jordan McLeod with a timely offence to stop Trail Athletics 11-5 in the final of the West Kootenay Babe Ruth Baseball Championship Thursday at the newly-refurbished Queen Elizabeth Park.The victory snaps what some baseball historians believe is a 20-year drought for Nelson Baseball.”Someone mentioned about the 20-plus year slump Nelson against Trail, but I have to admit I don’t know the dates or anything but it still feels good to beat Trail because they always have strong teams,” said Nelson coach Roger May.With the Nelson leading 5-4, Justin Lasichuk drove in a run with a double to center field. Jayden Maida then reached back before coming around to axore and increase the lead to 7-4.Nelson then put the ball in the hands of pitcher Jordan McLeod who silenced the Trail bats the rest of the game.

MOST READ Hong Kong tunnel reopens, campus siege nears end Hiromura designed 50 pictograms for 33 sports. Some sports will use more than one pictogram when the Olympic open on July 24, 2020.The ’64 Tokyo Olympics came up with the pictograms, partly because the games were the first in Asia and held in a country where the language was inaccessible to many international visitors.Unlike other recent Olympics, construction projects are largely on schedule. The new National Stadium, the centerpiece of the games, is to be completed by the by the end of the year at a cost estimated at $1.25 billion.That’s not to say these Olympics are problem free.Costs continue to rise, although local organizers and the IOC say they are cutting costs — or at least slowing the rise.ADVERTISEMENT A picture system to illustrate sports events was used in the 1936 Berlin Olympics, and 12 years later in London. Other Olympics sporadically used some drawings for the same purpose.But the ’64 Olympics originated the standardized symbols that have become familiar in every Olympics since then.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine football chiefSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesJapanese athletes posed with the pictograms and their designer, Masaaki Hiromura.

About 75 percent of this is public money, although costs are difficult to track with arguments over what are — and what are not — Olympic expenses. That figure is about three times larger than the bid forecast in 2013.Tsunekazu Takeda, the president of the Japanese Olympic Committee and a powerful International Olympic Committee member, is also being investigated in a vote-buying scandal that may have helped Tokyo land the Olympics.Takeda has denied wrongdoing and has not resigned from any of his positions with the IOC or in Japan.He is up for re-election to the Japanese Olympic Committee this summer and could face pressure to step aside.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next 1 dead, 3 injured in Quezon road crash PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss
About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Liverpool assistant Lijnders: Klopp impact like Cruyff at Barcelonaby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders has compared Jurgen Klopp’s impact at the club to that of Johan Cruyff at Barcelona.Klopp has been credited by many for restoring a winning mentality and positive atmosphere at the Anfield club.They won the Champions League last season and came within a whisker of the Premier League title.And Lijnders believes that Klopp deserves all the credit for those successes.When asked about Klopp winning the Best Manager award at a FIFA gala, Lijnders said at a press conference: “[It is a] big compliment for our structure, I think. For our owners to have faith in Jurgen from the start, giving him a six-year deal. That helps with the trust, to build.”Big compliment for our team, because without success the individual prizes will never come. Then of course a big compliment for Jurgen himself. I’m really proud. It says a lot.”He is not only the face of the team, he’s the face of the club and not many foreign managers in a different country made the impact he has made.”An example I always say is that Cruyff at Barca had an impact in that it’s not only about now, but about the future also.”He [Klopp] created a real identity about the way we play, the way he wants to play, and that could last for a long time.”
