Does any NHL team have to submit whatever uniforms they plan to wear during the regular season before actually being allowed to play in them? (Or was that the NFL or something?)I recall that the Leafs once wore the Ballard designs during warmups for some reason.The shells for the pants look too shiny.

I believe the origin of the name came from the fact that many of these guys had played earlier for the Renfrew Creamery Kings who were sarcastically dubbed “Millionaires” by the press in other cities because the owner (Ambrose O’Brien, a gent that had a reputation for having more money then he knew what to do with) signed a group of all star players to essentially buy himself a Stanley Cup championship in 1909/10 and 1910/11. (They failed)Most of the guys (Patrick brothers, Cyclone Taylor etc) came over from that team in 1911/12 to Vancouver.

Man United forward agreed terms with club ‘weeks ago’, Red Devils…

first_imgWith actual football now a thing of the past in Italy after Serie A dramatically shut its doors for the summer at the weekend with Atalanta and Inter securing the last two Champions League spots, transfer stories are filling column inches on Tuesday. The nerazzurri take Gazzetta dello Sport’s front cover thanks to Antonio Conte, who is in line to replace Luciano Spalletti, which means the obligatory story about Manchester United’s Romelu Lukaku.However, this one isn’t just your usual tepid update about how wages could be difficult for Inter to match.No, this one has actual interesting detail in it.We’ll start with the claims from Gazzetta from last week, who explained Inter tried to include Ivan Perisic in a deal for the Manchester United forward.Embed from Getty ImagesUnfortunately, that didn’t work out as the Croatia international was a target for José Mourinho, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants nothing to do with the ageing winger.The Red Devils are said to only want cash for Lukaku, and they’ve set the bar at €70m.That’s the main problem for Inter, as the wages are apparently already sorted, according to Gazzetta, after the Belgian star travelled to Milan ‘a few weeks ago’ and met up with members of the Serie A side’s board.Lukaku reportedly agreed to lower his wages in order to potentially ‘marry’ the club’s project, which is when the Italians started probing Manchester United for information about getting a deal over the line.Now unable to use Perisic as a makeweight, things have suddenly got a bit more complicated for Inter, and unless they find the cash to meet the Red Devils’ demands, convincing Ed Woodward to sell could prove difficult.They already know how stubborn the CEO is from their attempts to sign Matteo Darmian over the past 12 months.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a Beautiful City and Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comFind out where single guys are hanging out in Tung ChungDating.comUndoPerfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?Perfect-Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoMisterStocksThese Hilarious Photos Were Captured On The SubwayMisterStocksUndoLoans | Search AdsNeed a loan?

Mullaghmore Equestrian Centre named overall winner at CARA National Inclusion Awards as Pony Tales Stables also honored

first_img Mullaghmore Equestrian Centre named overall winner at CARA National Inclusion Awards as Pony Tales Stables also honored Home  »  General  »  Mullaghmore Equestrian Centre named overall winner at CARA National Inclusion Awards as Pony Tales Stables also honored 11 January 2017, 13:45 Mullaghmore Equestrian Centre in Co Monaghan has been named Hyundai Best Overall Winner and Adventure Category winner at the 2016 CARA National Inclusion Awards, while Pony Tales Stables in Co Kerry has also been honored, receiving the runner-up award in the Adventure Category.Eddie Guyett from Hyundai Ireland (on left) and Pat Flanagan (CARA/Tralee IT) present Marese McCarra of Mullaghmore Equestrian Centre, Co Monaghan with the Hyundai Best Overall Winner Award at the CARA National Inclusion AwardsCARA is a national organisation which provides a collaborative and partnership platform throughout Ireland, to impact on enhancing sport and physical activity opportunities for people with disabilities. The CARA National Inclusion Awards recognizes organisations and people who contribute to enhancing participation opportunities for people with disabilities in sport and physical activity. The purpose of the awards is to highlight and acknowledge best practice in relation to provision for people with disabilities in sport and physical activity.Mullaghmore Equestrian Centre in Monaghan provides horse riding courses and training to riders of all levels and abilities and has been in operation since 2007. The proprietor, Marese McCarra, has been increasingly involved in the provision of specialized training to persons with a wide range of disabilities and behavioral issues. Arising from this experience and increased demand for this type of accessible equestrian experience that can be enjoyed by all children and adults,Marese decided to pursue a qualification in Therapeutic Riding Instruction (one of 12 nationally). Based on her experience and the evidence of progression by participants as a result of accessible equestrian opportunities (specifically sensory stimulation), Marese applied for and successfully received funding from the National Lottery to develop an outdoor Sensory Trail which allows adults and children with particular sensory processing disorders associated with their disability (Autism, Down Syndrome, Dyspraxia), to fully enjoy the full equestrian experience.Speaking after receiving the awards, Marese McCarra said: “I am absolutely delighted and thrilled to have won not only the Adventure Provider category but also the Best Overall Award, I would like to acknowledge and thank the extremely hardworking bunch of volunteers who assist me at the centre, and without them we would not be able to deliver this level of service to our clients”Mullaghmore EC provides opportunities for physical activities through horse-riding animal care and stable management (mounted and unmounted riders). Specifically, it provides a physical exercise experience for people who cannot participate in other sports and exercise on account of their disability. In addition, it promotes the mental health of participants through the use of equine assisted learning which encourages social interaction, self-confidence and other educational benefits (including speech progression, motor skills, hand-eye coordination etc)Marese McCarra added, “The health benefits of physical exercise are well documented, and experience shows that people with disabilities can experience many barriers to engaging in and enjoying physical activity. Barriers are mostly presented by society and not on account of a disability. We at this centre feel that we are addressing these barriers by developing our facility in particular with the development of our sensory trail which is specifically designed for use by our riders with a disability. Many people with physical and learning disabilities display issues related to sensory processing disorder.“Our sensory trail allows opportunity to enjoy the physical activity while stimulating the senses. Sensory processing disorders can significantly impact on a person’s ability to engage in and enjoy a physical activity. Our sensory trail provides stimulation through sight, touch, smell, sound and taste. Similar to a sensory garden, a sensory trail allows participants to experience sensory stimulation on horseback. The sensory trail provides therapy that is complimentary and recommended by early intervention services. This fully accessible sensory trail not only accommodates the needs of people with a disability but can be enjoyed by all the community. We feel this project promotes inclusiveness and integration by providing the opportunity for everyone to participate regardless of their abilities.”Pony Tales Stables which is based at Faha, Killarney Co Kerry, was named runner-up in the Adventure category for the excellent work they do with disabled and special needs clients that attend their therapeutic riding programme .Tim Clifford from Pony Tales Stables said: “We were delighted to be honored at the CARA National Inclusion Awards.. The award is not only for us, the award is for our riders that face simple life challenges that most of us take for granted . This award will help us to promote awareness that horse riding is for everyone. We work with groups and individuals with all kinds of challenges such as wheelchair users, those with autism and people with visual impairments.“Those with visual impairments benefit from being able to touch and feel the horse, as well as feeling the motion of the horse whilst riding, and those with autism not only benefit from the way they engage with the horse, but also from the instructions given by our experienced instructors and volunteers. Our goal is to help these riders understand that their disability is a challenge and not a limitation of life’s activities, in a fun, encouraging environment.”Horse Sport Ireland would like to congratulate Mullaghmore Equestrian Centre and Pony Tales Stales for receiving such prestigious awards.

That left him almost six seconds faster than the only other double clear round which came from Mexican rider Nicolas Pizzaro with Fabrice DN.“The first round course was tough, there wasn’t so many clears but it was a good jump off my horse really felt on point. I’ve only had him (Romeo 88) for five months but I think the sky is the limit.” – Darragh Kenny on his horse Romeo 88.The victory was Ireland’s second of the week so far at Spruce Meadows, coming on the back of a win for Derry’s Jordan Coyle on Wednesday.

Ireland drawn first to go in vital Polish Nations Cup in Sopot as Rodrigo Pessoa names team

first_img Tags: The Irish Show Jumping team have been handed the toughest possible draw for tomorrow’s (Sunday) hugely important Longines FEI Nations Cup at Sopot in Poland, with Rodrigo Pessoa’s team drawn first out of the hat – meaning they will be the first team to enter the arena when the competition starts at the earlier than usual time of 9.30am Irish time.The home team from Poland will be second into the arena, followed by France, Brazil, Germany, Belgium, Austria and The Netherlands.Ireland, sponsored by Devenish and The Underwriting Exchange, will line out as follows:Limerick’s Paul O’Shea with Skara Glen’s Machu Picchu – owned by Machu Picchu Partners LLCCork’s Shane Sweetnam with Alejandro – owned by Seabrook LLCWaterford’s Peter Moloney with Chianti’s Champion – owned by Team HarmonyWexford’s Bertram Allen with Harley VD Bisschop – owned by Ballywalter StableSpeaking ahead of the competition, Rodrigo Pessoa said his team are focused on delivering a positive result.“This is a very important round after our fourth place finish in La Baule. This is only our second round but we need to score big here and everyone is aware of that. We are testing Harley VD Bisschop and Alejandro for the first time – these are horses we have seen a bit of. We are looking for a good result here tomorrow and we will give it a go,” Pessoa commented.Ireland will be hoping to add to the 70 league points they picked up on their first points-scoring outing at La Baule (FRA) in May, knowing that following Sopot, Ireland have just two more opportunities to gain points – at Hickstead (GBR) in July and Dublin in August.Pessoa and his development team manager Michael Blake have used several different combinations in Nations Cup competitions during the early part of the season, in order to build a wide pool of horses and riders and are now entering a crucial period – not least in relation to all important Olympic qualification.Pessoa has stated from the outset that the main focus for this year is to gain Olympic qualification at the European Championships in Rotterdam (NED) in August. Three Olympic places will be on offer at the Europeans for teams not yet qualified, but along with Ireland, the list of nations still looking for a coveted ticket to Tokyo includes France, Great Britain, Belgium, Italy, Spain and Portugal.There will be one final Olympic place on offer at September’s Nations Cup World Final in Barcelona, which is one of the reasons why tomorrow’s outing in Sopot is so important. Ireland must finish among the top seven teams on the Nations Cup league table after the last round in Dublin to make the Barcelona final, meaning every league point will prove vital.The Longines FEI Nations Cup of Poland in Sopot starts at 9.30am Irish time on Sunday and is live on FEITV.There was success for Ireland in the individual competitions in Sopot on Saturday evening when Cork’s Billy Twomey scored an impressive win. He partnered Chat Botte E.D to victory in the 1m50 two phase competition, finishing half a second ahead of Belgian runner-up Gudrun Patteet and Sea Coast Crystal de Leau.Meanwhile in the five-star Longines Global Champions Tour 1m60 Grand Prix at Stockholm in Sweden, Mayo’s Michael G Duffy and The Irish Sport Horse Lapuccino, owned by Carl Hanley Sporthorses, recorded an excellent sixth place finish. One of 10 combinations to make it into the jump-off, they completed a double clear round, crossing the line in 38.58 seconds. Victory went to to home favourite Peder Fredricson (SWE) with H&M All In with a blistering round in 33.95.BREEDINGLapuccino 2 (ISH) – 2008 stallion by SIEC Livelllo (HOLST) out of Cabaret III (BHD).

Ali-Mohamed, Pestano-Belle guide GCC past Rising Stars

first_imgHalf-centuries from national player, Ronaldo Alimohamed and Martin Pestano-Belle, saw Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC) beating Rising Stars by seven wickets on Sunday. Playing at the former international venue, Bourda, in an invitational match to prepare for the upcoming season, Essequibo-based, Rising Stars won the toss and opted to bat in the 30-overs-a-side affair, posting 147 all out in 29.5 overs. GCC, in reply, reached 148-3 in 23 overs.Alimohamed took the fight to the Essequibians with a belligerent 50-ball 85 that included five fours and five sixes, the first of which went over long off to bring up his half century.The 20-year-old forged a 108-run third wicket partnership with Pestano-Belle who seemed a mere spectator to Alimohamed’s assault. However, Pestano-Belle got to work later on to end unbeaten on a run-a-ball 50, decorated with four fours and one six. Andy Ramnarine (1-17), Ottis Roberts (1-28) and Ravindra Narine (1-31) were the wicket takers for Rising Stars.Earlier, the visitors were indebted to a 68-run third-wicket stand between Robert Latchman (43) and Roberts (34) after left-arm spinner, Stephon Wilson (2-24) removed both openers.Latchman finessed four fours and two sixes before edging to the wicketkeeper off of Alimohamed while Roberts hammered three sixes and two fours before suffering the same fate, this time off of left-arm spinner, Devon Lord (2-23). Bernard Bailey (2-26) then rocked the middle order before Zachary Jodah bowled Ramnarine and a run out ended Rising Stars’ innings.last_img read more

Police: Cincinnati nightclub shooting that killed 1, injured 15 started as a dispute

first_imgCincinnati Police Department(CINCINNATI) —  Cincinnati police have yet to make arrests in a nightclub shooting early Sunday morning that killed one person and wounded at least 15.Police said the violence started as a dispute between “local men” who were caught up in an argument.The victim who died was identified by authorities Sunday as 27-year-old Obryan Spikes. Another victim is in critical condition, police said.The shooting at around 1:30 a.m. at Cameo Nightclub created an atmosphere of “chaos,” said police, who described the 21-and-over nightspot as one frequented primarily by young people.“The bar was very crowded” at the time, with hundreds of people inside, police said.“People were going to have a good time and ended up being shot. That is unacceptable,” the city’s mayor, John Cranley, said at a press conference Sunday.Police early on in their investigation ruled out terrorism as being behind the attack, but Cranley said that didn’t diminish the tragedy.“To the victims, what difference does it make?” the mayor said.Cincinnati Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate initially tweeted that only one person was responsible for the violence.But at the press conference later in the day, police said more than one shooter was likely involved.Police Sgt. Eric Franz told ABC News that investigators are working through “a large and complicated homicide scene,” and that “at this point we have multiple witnesses we’re interviewing and we have nobody in custody.”Police said Cameo has had violent incidents in the past, and that despite efforts by the club to bolster security, several firearms were brought into the club prior to the shooting.Mayor Cranley asked that members of the public “come forward and help us solve this crime. We must bring the shooters to justice.”Gov. John Kasich tweeted that he was “saddened” to learn about the shooting.Kelly Martin, a spokeswoman for University of Cincinnati Medical Center, told ABC News early Sunday that it admitted eigh people early this morning, three of them in serious condition and 1 in critical condition.A spokesman for Bethesda North Hospital told ABC News it admitted two patients related to the shooting, but did not provide their conditions.At Christ Hospital, a spokeswoman told ABC News it admitted two individuals with minor injuries from the shooting.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
