adidas nizza black 2016 Staten Island Half

The Staten Island Half Marathon will send an estimated 10,000 runners to the streets Sunday morning, beginning and finishing in St. George.

The new race starting line is on Bay Street at Slosson Terrace, approximately a half mile from the ferry terminal and the Richmond County Bank Ballpark.

Local marathoner Mike Cassidy (New York Athletic Club) placed 10th overall with a time of 1:10.58, while Victoria Pontecorvo (Staten Island Athletic Club) turned in a solid women’s time of 1:26.46.

I caught up to both distance running standouts at the water logged finish line and will file a story this afternoon.

Cassidy tweaked his left hamstring recently at a race in Philadelphia and this was his first real test since that injury. Half Marathon three consecutive times (2011,

Should be at the finish line within a half hour or so. Olympic Trials marathon qualifer) and Victoria Pontecorvo are out on the extremely wet and windy 13.1 mile course.

I’ll try to meet them at the finish line.

THE LONG WALK TO STARTING LINE

More on, than off. Just grabbed a egg and cheese sandwich at John’s Gourmet Deli across the street from the ballpark, where runners are seeking shelter from the storm. A couple of guys from Brooklyn said they just received an e mail a day or two ago about the new starting line, which is in the direction of Victory Blvd.

adidas gazelle size 3 2016 Major League Soccer SuperDraft

It’s also the first major stage for Earnie Stewart as the Union’s sporting director; and Brendan Burke as the head coach of Bethlehem Steel, the Union’s USL affiliate. We will see what kind of influence both men have on today’s proceedings as they look for players who can contribute at the major and minor league levels. In addition, the console below has a pick by pick tracker and breaking news updates from reporters covering today’s proceedings.

Right out of the gate, the Union made a big move, trading cash to the Colorado Rapids for their No. 2 overall pick. The Union now have three of the top six picks in the draft.

No. 2: D Joshua Yaro, Georgetown

No. 3: D Keegan Rosenberry, Georgetown

No. 6: F Fabian Herbers, Creighton

All three of those players are clearly among the top prospects in this year’s draft pool. Yaro is by far the top central defender, Herbers is a versatile and dynamic attacker, and Rosenberry is a resolute right back. Yaro and Herbers come with the added bonus of being Generation Adidas players, so their salaries won’t count against the cap.

You’ll have surely noticed, though, a name that isn’t listed: Stanford left back Brandon Vincent.

Why the Union took Rosenberry at No. 3 instead of Vincent is a big question. We will find out after the Union finish their picks for the day, as that’s when manager Jim Curtin will address reporters.

Vincent ended up going to Chicago. The Fire drafted Wake Forest midfielder Jack Harrison at No. 1 overall, then traded him to New York for the No. 4 pick and took Vincent.

adidas all black football boots 2015 Topps Major League Soccer

Topps loads its hobby box for 2015 Major League Soccer with autographs and relic cards there are five big hits promised in each and in a low end product, that pretty good.

More on that soon. First, the basics.

The base cards are distinguishable by three different logos. Most of the cards have the club crest in the upper left hand corner, while All Star and Under 24 logos are also part of the checklist. Included within the club logo cards are photos of players as shown during the MLS draft. These cards have a vertical design and feature each player wearing a scarf with the logo of the team that drafted them. I think that was a nice touch, and I found 17 of these cards; the one of Orlando City Akeil Barrett depicts the Jamaican born forward sporting a sharp red and white bowtie. Nice.

Of those base cards, 146 had the club crest, while 24 of them carried the Adidas Under 24 logo in the upper left hand corner. These are cards of players who began their MLS careers before turning 24. An additional 21 carry the 2014 All Star logo for a total of 191 cards. Unfortunately, there are 12 doubles that prevent the base set from being complete.

The parallels are hard to find (look for the number stamped in gold foil on the back of the card). The one I found was a gold parallel of Sporting Kansas City midfielder Paulo Nagamura. Is it my aging eyesight, or are the A and R in the font used by Topps in this set almost indistinguishable? Especially when they are placed next to each other.

There was one variation short printed All Star card of Sporting Kansas City forward Dom Dwyer. The base card shows Dwyer in a striped shirt, while in the variation he is wearing a black shirt.

For the design in this set, players are shown in sharp detail against a soft focus background. The layout is mostly vertical on the card front, and while I am not a big fan of horizontal design for base cards, the ones included in this set work well. For example, card No. 91 shows Chicago Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson stretching to stop a shot; the horizontal shot works perfectly here. Galaxy midfielder Marcelo Sarvas (No. 75), delivering a scissors kick, were the best of the lot. Some of the others had some curious crops (it always helps to get the feet of a soccer player in the shot), but overall the idea worked.

Topps is promising two autograph cards, two relics and an auto/relic card per hobby box.

The first hit was a Kits of the Game relic of Seattle Sounders forward Obafemi Martins, numbered to 85. This is one of 40 relics in this subset, and the design is horizontal with a nice green uniform swatch. national team at the World Cup in 2014. The card is numbered to 35, and the signature is on a sticker on this card, whose color scheme predominantly green.

The third hit was another Kits of the Game relic card. United goalkeeper Bill Hamid and also was numbered to 85. Another green swatch, this one a little darker than the one on the Martins card.

More green was apparent in the fourth hit, a sticker autograph card of Chicago Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson. That because Johnson is wearing a green uniform. The card, however, qualifies as a black parallel numbered to 10, because of the black background behind the ball in the action photograph.

This hobby box had a bonus. In the final pack, I pulled a 1/1 magenta printing plate of Orlando City SC goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts.

There were three different types of insert cards I pulled. The first was Presence of the Pitch, which depicts player emotion as they run down the pitch. The photos are tightly cropped and there are 25 in the set. They generally fall every six packs; I hit the average by pulling four of these cards.

The second was called Gameday Heritage. This is a 10 card subset that focuses on the atmosphere and fan enthusiasm. The final insert consisted of 15 mini cards sketches. These are not minis in the traditional way Topps has used for its baseball sets, for example. The height of these cards are the same as the base; its, the width that is shorter.

adidas f50 adizero trx fg 2015 prep track and field preview series

She’s the state record holder, but Lauren Ellsworth enters her senior season as a darkhorse, a long shot. The Highland star posted the fastest time for an Arizona high school girl last May while winning the Div. I title in 2:07.61. What makes Ellsworth the long shot is an ACL injury that she suffered in October. Ellsworth is back to running, but only in short spurts, and her status for the season remains doubtful. It would be a minor miracle if she returned to competition this spring and the BYU commit won’t jeopardize her running future by trying to come back too soon, so she likely has ran in her last race as a Hawk.

Next tier

It’s ridiculous to put Desert Vista senior Danielle Jones under the header of next tier, but here she is. She is the 2013 state champ in the 800 and will make a run at trying to knock Ellsworth down to No. 2 on the all time chart. Her PR is 2:09.24 and if the University of Colorado commit gets into the right race this year, she has the speed to go under 2:07.

On the rise

Some of the best racing will probably be found in the 800 among Desert Vista’s Mason Swenson (a junior), Baylee Jones (sophomore) and Mandy Davis (sophomore) and Chandler’s Alexis Nichols (junior) as well as Corona del Sol’s Renee Clary (sophomore) and Red Mountain’s Taryn Estavillo (senior). Those six runners have Personal bests between 2:16.21 (Jones) and 2:19.02 (Estavillo) and will be mixing it up to get to a spot on the podium.

Boys 800 meters

Top tier

Perry’s Cade Burks emerged onto the scene by winning the elite 800 at last year’s Chandler Rotary as a sophomore and he was the lone sophomore in the fast heat of the Div. I 800 meter finals. He emerged as the state runner up behind Corona del Sol’s Nate Rodriguez, posting a personal best of 1:54.22. Burks has a nearly 4 second gap on the rest of the returning field in Div. I and he’ll try to close the gap with the state’s top returning 800 runner, Rio Rico’s Carlos Villarreal, who ran 1:53.00 to win the Div. III title.

Next tier

His speciality isn’t the short distances, but Campo Verde’s Lucky Schreiner showed he does has some leg speed, running to a fourth place finish in Div. II with a time of 1:57.14. Schreiner missed all of cross country with a stress fracture in a foot, so the shorter distances may better suit him this year as he gets back into shape.

On the rise

Gilbert Christian junior Logan Pinkerton was the only underclassman in the top 4 at the Div. IV state meet. He finished third with a PR of 1:59.82 and will assume the role of favorite heading into this season.

Girls 1600 meters

Top tier

This season should look a lot like a Dani Jones victory lap. The Desert Vista senior has accomplished just about everything she’s set out to do in her career, but don’t expect her to slow down. She set a new state record in the 1,600 at the Div. I state meet in May at 4:48.73 and then ran to a 3rd place finish at the adidas Dream Mile in New York City, running a full mile in 4:43.40, which converts to a 4:41.76 1,600, more than seven seconds faster than the old state record of 4:49.11, set by Sara (Gorton) Slattery back in 1999. Jones will be after a return trip to the Dream Mile where she will eye a victory on the national stage before heading off to Boulder and the University of Colorado.

Next tier

Four returning girls runners ran under 5 minutes in the 1,
adidas flock hoody 2015 prep track and field preview series
600 and three of them are from Desert vista (the other was Lauren Ellsworth of Highland). Mason Swenson ran to a 3rd place finish at state in 4:59.47 and Baylee Jones was right behind in fourth at 4:59.85. Both had strong cross country seasons and should be fast enough to beat just about anyone in the state not named Dani Jones.

On the rise

Chandler has had a strong grip on points in the sprint events, but Alexis Nichols should help the Wolves grab some distance points. Nichols was fifth in Div. I a year ago and will have to fend off runners like Desert Vista’s Mandy Davis, Red Mountain’s Taryn Estavillo and Highland’s Allyson Girard for the fourth spot behind the strong Desert Vista trio.

Boys 1,600 meters

Top tier

Lucky Schreiner emerged as a superstar last year for Campo Verde, winning the 1,600 in Div. II and running a PR of 4:13.45, the No. 2 returning time in the state. Schreiner, who will attend Columbia University in the fall, will be very motivated to run well on the track this year after missing all of cross country season with an injury.

Next tier

Corona del Sol senior Marcus Wheeler last competed on the track as a freshman at Hamilton. Wheeler transferred to Chandler as a sophomore and sat out the cross country and track season. Then, he ran cross country at Corona del Sol as a junior and sat out the track season. This year, he won the state title in cross country and is back on the track for the Aztecs. Wheeler showed in cross country he can run with anyone in the state, so it will be interesting just how fast he’s become in two years away from high school track and field.

On the rise

Cade Burks has the top returning time in Div. I, but the Perry junior didn’t run the 1,600 at state, deciding to focus on the 800, where he was second. This year, Burks will look to improve greatly on the 4:20.38 he ran as a sophomore as he plans to run more 1,600 races.

Girls 3,200 meters

Top tier

Dani Jones ran the 3,200 meters just twice last year and both times were good enough to be the best time in the state. Her 10:34.16 at the state meet helped lead a 1 2 3 Desert Vista sweep in that event (a feat that the Thunder could repeat in 2015). This season, expect Jones to run the 3,200 at the prestigious Arcadia Invitational in April and make a real run at the all time mark of 10:15.94 set by Sara (Gorton) Slattery in 1999. Arcadia is known nationwide as the best meet to run the 3,
adidas flock hoody 2015 prep track and field preview series
200 in with a deep and fast field. Last year six runners ran under 10:15.94.

adidas jamaica 2014 World Cup most lucrative and expensive in FIFA history

financial success we have it, it is done, FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke has said. ticket sales success is there, we have never sold so many tickets. satisfaction is not shared across Brazil.

Taxpayers are picking up the biggest bill, with the country of 200 million people running up costs several times more than FIFA to stage the world most watched sports event.

The $14 billion total is the predicted spending on building and renovating 12 stadiums, upgrading federal, state and city infrastructure, plus security plans to welcome the 32 teams and around 600,000 expected visitors.

The spending fueled unrest in Brazil, especially during the Confederations Cup last June, among those wanting better schools, hospitals and less government corruption.

Brazil bid for the World Cup they had the budget to do so, Valcke said.

FIFA forecasts it will spend $2 billion on the 2014 tournament, including the local organizing committee costs.

Still, much of that bypasses Brazil. Even if the host nation does earn the winner check on July 13, the remaining $323 million in FIFA prize fund goes to the other 31 nations.

Graphic News/ Brazil and the World Cup

The federations also share $48 million from FIFA to prepare for the tournament, and $70 million goes to (mostly European) clubs whose players are selected.

The $35 million first prize is less than 1 per cent of the governing body revenue banked directly from its marquee event over a four year commercial cycle.

Broadcasters and sponsors pay most of FIFA $4 billion income.

European television networks have paid the majority of the nearly $1.7 billion, so far, in rights fees to FIFA, according to the past three years of financial reports.

Six top tier partners Adidas, Coca Cola, Emirates, Hyundai, Sony,

Eight second tier sponsors Budweiser, Castrol, Continental, Johnson Johnson, McDonalds, Moy Park, Oi, Yingli collectively pay $524 million. About $120 million has been earned from Brazilian sponsors, according to the 2011 13 financial reports.

As street protesters in Brazil know, FIFA revenue is untaxed there. World Cup sponsors and media also receive exemptions for their operations as a condition of Brazil hosting bid in 2007.

FIFA, however, has spent significantly in Brazil.

FIFA already gave $221.6 million to the embattled organizing committee, and more should follow in last minute wrangling over paying for essential services.

In February, FIFA settled a nearly $20 million bill for power generators needed for broadcast operations.

In 2010, the Spain Netherlands final was watched by 530.9 million people according to the reliable global in home audience measure. More than 900 million people watched at least one minute of the match at home, and the overall total likely topped 1 billion when public viewing places are added.

Spending by FIFA on ticketing, accommodation and IT services has also helped Brazil economy. Draw ceremonies for the qualifying groups in Rio de Janeiro in July 2011 and the finals tournament in Costa do Sauipe last December added several millions more.

This year, the Miller on Sports team chose to follow the younger set of runners. In the 2012 Junior River Run, there were two major youth races: boys and girls nine years old and under, and boys and girls ten through thirteen years old.

The runners ran west on Duval Street and then circled back along Duval Street to finish the mile race inside the fairgrounds just north of the starting line. The weather for the races was breezy and cool,
