except one on Wednesday.Lynch came out

Liverpool - ever hear of it? Most of you have known it as the home of The Beatles. New Balance Donna 574 . The one Im talking about is the home of country and western singer Hank Snow (Hank, who died in 1989 would have been 100 this year). Im talking about the other Liverpool - the one in Canada - Atlantic Canada - on the south coast of Nova Scotia 90 minutes south of Halifax. Its nice, cute and quaint - almost a flashback in time look-type of town. Population of about 2,000, bolstered by the adjoining communities of Milton and Brooklyn. So you the idea that this is small town Canada, even very small town. Needless to say, Liverpool doesnt make national headlines. But it has in recent years and it wasnt for good reasons. Over a year ago the big White Point resorts main lodge went up in flames, putting a tourist hub out of work. And then the industry that gave this area its birth - the Bowater paper mill - closed and put hundreds of others out of work after 83 years. Yes, its been tough times. But a decision was made almost four years ago to build a recreation centre and arena - to the tune of $21 million - and its this centre that is the star of Liverpool today. And this tiny town is hosting a big national sporting event as the Canadian Junior National Curling championships are being held here. Of course, TSN - which is accustomed to broadcasting in small towns as shown by the Kraft Celebration Tour - is here. They made it to a neighboring town of Bridgewater for one delightful Sunday afternoon on last summers tour. But Bridgewater at 20,000 people is a metropolis compared to Liverpool. This is by far the biggest event ever held in Liverpool going back to 1759, and it all comes back to the new arena which, like so many places in Canada, is the centre of a town. Before this event, one has to go back 50 to 60 years in the days of the H&D Baseball League when Moe Drabowsky came to town to get big provincial coverage. Remember Moe? He was an American baseball player who came to this region to play semi-pro ball. Moe Drabowsky pitched in Liverpool on his way up to a decent major league career. He pitched in the majors for many teams, but is remembered for his days with Baltimore. He still holds a major league record of striking out 11 batters in a relief appearance in the 1966 World Series and his six consecutive strikeouts of the Dodgers - tying him with a mark set in 1909. Moes Orioles beat the Dodgers winning four straight. No NHL hockey players or CFLers have ever come from Liverpool. There are some provincial highlights, but not national ones over the decades. The local legion held the National Cribbage tournament in 2013, but that doesnt count as it really was confined to legions across the county and crib is not a spectator sport. We as Canadians talk a lot about our love for hockey and arenas across Canada and this building has given this area that has suffered so many hard knocks over the year a great showcase. The reason this national curling event is here - and the reason the TSN mobile trucks are in town - is Queens Place. There is no other reason. The curling will be underway with the womens finals on Saturday and the mens final on Sunday afternoon. If you thought the Kraft Celebration Tour was big in nearby Bridgewater five months ago, you have to see this event. Its nothing for the NHL and CFL centres to get national coverage. Its a much bigger deal for when a very small community gets, even for just a few hours, the national spotlight for a sporting event. Queens Place, in its second year, still looks like new. There was a little resistance as the hockey rink changed to a curling venue, but most of that dissipated when folks realized what an economic boom this national curling event was to this area. Signs of "Welcome to our House" are all over the place, along with "Liverpool Rocks." The folks in this area have battled back from many debilitating blows over the last few years and have staged a great national curling event. This weekend will showcase the building and the town on national television on TSN. Its a good story - maybe even a great one. This is my 25th year affiliated with TSN - 12 of them on television reporting from every nook and cranny in Atlantic Canada. And six years ago I moved to the Liverpool area. In my 25 years of covering stories in Atlantic Canada, this is my first shout out from here and Im glad – and proud - to do so. For TSN.ca, Im Alex J. Walling.

Rodgers has spent the best part of three months ducking and diving from the questions about pressure and his sides title bid. Nike Free Run 2 Prezzo . That will give them plenty of time to savour Robyn Regehrs first career overtime goal and try to figure out how to score more often.PHOENIX - Marshawn Lynch found a new way to say nothing.A day after giving the same one-sentence response at Super Bowl Media Day, the Seattle Seahawks running back had another scripted answer to any questions.You know why Im here, Lynch replied to every question except one on Wednesday.Lynch came out to a podium instead of his original assigned spot where a large group of reporters and cameraman had gathered. He stayed for five minutes before leaving.The only time Lynch had a different answer was when he was asked what music hell listen to pregame before facing the New England Patriots on Sunday at the Super Bowl.He said: Its a new song. Marshawn. You know why Im here.On Tuesday, Lynch repeated: Im just here so I dont get fined while talking to reporters at the US Airways Center.Some of the questions Lynch refused to answer Wednesday included:— Why do you have to be a jerk to all of us?— Do you have a message for your fans?— Can you talk about your charity foundation?— Isnt this whole act a selfish move?In November, the NFL fined Lynch $50,000 for violations of the leagues media policy in additioon to collecting the $50,000 fine that was imposed against Lynch for violations last season. Nike Air Max 90 Uomo Essential scarpe nere/bianche. The fine from 2013 was held in anticipation of future co-operation from Lynch.The Professional Football Writers of America complained to the league about Tuesdays session and Lynch had been apprised of a potential fine.A league spokesman declined comment.Teammates continued defending Lynch, saying hes a different person off camera and away from microphones.The Marshawn that we know obviously tries to be different to media, centre Max Unger said. Unfortunately you guys dont get a really good picture of who he is in the locker room and as a guy. He is the best. I think if you ask anybody in that locker room they will say the same thing, one of the best guys to be around. He has his own relationship with the media and you just have to leave it at that. He gets up there and says something and thats what the NFL wants. You cant regulate the quality of the response and thats the thing.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org___Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_RobMaaddi wholesale stitched jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale nfl jerseyscheap nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys china ' ' '
