Hopefully he can help the U21s with qualifying.”I’m not ruling out the fact that he could play at Euro 2020. It would be foolish to say that he will not go.”There will come a time when we have to look at the different pieces and see who is in the picture.

USA Today Ranked Michigan’s Botched Punt As The Worst Play In Sports History

(Photo by Stacy Revere/Getty Images)There’s no doubt that Michigan’s botched punt this past Saturday was one of the most poorly timed mistakes in sports in recent memory. But is it the worst play in sports history? According to USA Today’s Mike Foss, it was. Monday, Foss, who writes for For The Win, ranked the 20 worst plays in sports history. Michigan’s blunder was No. 1, ahead of Bill Buckner’s error in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series.1. MICHIGAN PUNT.It seems cruel to say this was the worst play in sports history only two days after it went down, but sometimes the truth is a cruel mistress. This is unfathomable, and likely will cost Michigan a shot at the College Football Playoff this year.You’ve probably seen the play by now. If not, here you go:ICYMI: Still haven’t seen the wildest finish, perhaps ever? Here it is! http://t.co/8wVWGMIi7t— Big Ten Network (@BigTenNetwork) October 17, 2015Personally, I have a hard time putting this anywhere near Buckner’s error. Michigan vs. Michigan State, while important, was a regular season college football game. Buckner’s blunder took place in the World Series for a team that hadn’t won it all since 1918. But hey, we’re all allowed opinions – that’s part of what makes sports great.<img src="http://c66.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/C2066/IMG5707.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm8102"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

When the cameras shut off, Saban apparently got even more animated with Finebaum – which a number of nearby reporters listened in on.It looks like the two are ready to hash it out again – or bury the hatchet.

Belo Horizonte ghosts brushed asideAt the scene of their 7-1 mauling at the hands of Germany in the 2014 World Cup semi-finals, Brazil found a way – and got some luck. Argentina hit the woodwork twice, but Brazil did enough to reach their first Copa America final since 2007.Brazil continue Argentina dominance thanks to JesusBrazil have never lost a competitive game at home to Argentina and that record was maintained, thanks largely to Jesus. The Manchester City forward was exceptional throughout, scoring once and assisting the other while causing constant problems.Messi’s wait goes onNow 32, Messi’s wait for a first senior title with Argentina continues. The star struggled to find top form at the Copa America, although he looked threatening against Brazil.Key Opta Facts:- Brazil have never lost a competitive game at home to Argentina, winning nine and drawing two.- They have eliminated Argentina the past five times they have met at the Copa America (1995, 1999, 2004, 2007 and 2019).- Brazil have not lost a Copa America game after scoring the opening goal since 1979.- Argentina attempted 10 more shots than Brazil (14-4).- Firmino has had a hand in five of Brazil’s 10 goals at the 2019 Copa America, scoring two and assisting three.- Alisson has kept a clean sheet in each of his past nine games in all competitions for Brazil and Liverpool, last conceding on May 4.What’s next?Brazil will face either Chile or Peru in the final on Sunday, while Argentina meet the loser of that clash in the third-place play-off a day earlier. read more<img src="http://b49.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/B2049/IMG254.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm8099"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

New Zealand defeated India by four runs in the third and final Twenty20 International (T20I) to clinch the series 2-1 here on Sunday.New Zealand captain Kane Williamson was a relieved man after his team defeated India in a thrilling match at the Seddon Park in Hamilton on Sunday to clinch the three-match series 2-1.India failed to chase down a 200 plus total for the second time in four days and lost the T20I series to New Zealand. Set 213 to win the decider, India managed 208 for 6 thanks to a spirited bowling effort from New Zealand.”What a brilliant advertisement for T20 cricket. It’s great to get across the line tonight. It was a fairly short series. The first performance was our best, and there were some learning in the second one.”For it to go to the last couple of balls, I knew India would come back strong, and it was a great series to be a part of. The nature of international cricket is such that we have to play Bangladesh at home now, so looking forward to that as well,” Williamson said at the post-match presentation ceremony.Williamson’s side had posted 212 for 4 after being put into bat with openers Colin Munro and Tim Seifert adding 80 runs for the first wicket which set the tone of their innings.advertisementMan-of-the-match Munro top-scored with 72 runs while Seifert, who was adjudged Player of the Series, made a quickfire 43 off 25 balls. Colin de Grandhomme (30) and Williamson (27) also made significant contributions to the total.India in reply, lost opener Shikhar Dhawan in the first over but Vijay Shankar (43) and Rohit Sharma (38) then steadied the innings by adding 75 runs for the second wicket.Shankar fell in the 9th over but Rohit carried on and added 40 runs with Rishabh Pant. But once those two departed in quick succession, India’s innings lost momentum with MS Dhoni also departing cheaply.Dinesh Karthik and Krunal Pandya made a valiant attempt to take India within touching distance but some outstanding bowling by Daryl Mitchll (2/27) and Tim Southee in the death overs helped the Black Caps to victory.Mitchell Santner returned with 2 wickets as well while Scott Kuggeleijn and debutant Blair Tickner picked up a wicket each.Also Read | Lots of positives and a few mistakes, says Rohit Sharma after T20I series defeatAlso Read | I am a big fan of Mr Kohli but bigger fan of Mrs Kohli: Banner spotted during Hamilton T20IAlso Read | Pandya brothers are only 2-over bowlers in T20Is: Sanjay ManjrekarAlso Read | MS Dhoni falls for 2 in 300th T20 match as India lose narrowly to New ZealandFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

This is a big thing. Going by this performance, we can gauge how well they will do in the Olympics. I am really hopeful we will get medals in Tokyo,” Geeta told IANS.”Now these wrestlers have one year to prepare, see other bouts and develop overall. So I hope more wrestlers qualify from the upcoming events.

Shop Class: Context in Madison, Wisconsin

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://a36.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/A2036/IMG18322.jpg" alt="first_img" /> The Best Father and Son Matching Outfits Hang Like the Rat Pack at These Old School Vegas Steakhouses A Guide to Raw Denim Jean Selection and Care The Most Unique Collaboration Beers in the U.S. One thing we pride ourselves on at this site is our constant search for all of the good and great around the country, not just in the big cities of NYC and LA. One store that blew our minds is Context based in Madison, Wisconsin.Founded in 2005  by two friends, Ryan Huber and Sam Parker,  who have a mutual love of heavy metal and good looking American made clothes, the store started out  focusing on denim. As Ryan explained, “We are right in the middle of the country and there haven’t been any stores around us specializing in hard to find raw denim. We knew there was a customer for it here because if you live in his area you will drive to find something you want.”Wisely, they decided to open online in 2007 when the menswear online world was just getting going. Through the years, Context has evolved into a full men’s lifestyle shop and is getting noticed around the globe for creating and stocking goods produced in historic American manufacturing plants. They have had a loyal following of guys from 28-35 as well as some 50+. “One client is 71 and a great customer,”Huber told us. But it isn’t just the older clients who are spending, “What blows our minds is how many guys call up and tell us what size Chuck Taylor they wear so we can relate it to a pair of Alden’s. That is a big step up from a $30 pair of sneakers.” One of their specialties is leather products. They are all hand made by artisans in the First Settlement District of Madison, Wisconsin using leather from some of the world’s oldest tanneries. There is a core collection of wallets, belts, card cases and briefcases as well as special items such as the shell cordovan wallet. If you didn’t know, cordovan is horse hide and there has been a serious shortage recently (since fewer and fewer people are eating horse meat!). Regardless, this biker wallet will last a lifetime and look better and better with age. A collab that is sending sparks through the menswear market is the new CXL 113 jacket which Context created with Schott and Horween Tannery.  It’s an ode to the 1928 Perfecto jacket designed by Irving Schott. The natural Chromexel horsehide is hand made at Schott in Union, New Jersey and will last for eons. Look out for some new projects with Alden rolling out later this year. If you aren’t near Madison, peruse the newly launched website that is easy to use and has great interface on all platforms. The boys pride themselves on excellent photography and offering as much information on each product as possible. Carrying lines such as Faherty, Gitman Vintage, Shinola, Strong Suit and Barton Perreira, Context is giving Cheese heads a serious makeover.  Editors’ Recommendations The McMenamins Effect: How 2 Brothers Helped Start Beervana <img src="http://a36.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/A2036/IMG8768.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm8088"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

CHADHAUS’s Farmhouse Cupboard Took 45 Hours to Make

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://a23.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2023/IMG10314.jpg" alt="first_img" /> Sip On the Original Stormtrooper Beer While You Wait for the Next Star Wars Movie Chad and Emily Robertson helm a small artisinal furniture company based in Seattle called CHADHAUS. One day, they got a request: “Can you make a tall storage cabinet that looks like your credenza?”  “We made about four cabinets that met this brief, in different variations, before launching this version of the piece,” said Chad Robertson. “What we found most appealing about this final design is that the cupboard can be used in bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, living rooms, and even professional offices – housing linens, pantry items, garments, supplies, electronics and beyond.”The final piece, a space-saving cupboard, is versatile and can function in large and small rooms alike. Use it in the kitchen as a pantry. Have kids? It can also be placed in the kids’ room or playroom to hide all the toys once they’ve had enough fun each day. In the bathroom, it can serve as a linen closet and a place to store toiletries. Don’t have a proper closet in your bedroom? Put it there so you have a place to store that pile of clothes that’s sitting all over your bedroom. “We really like the fact that the piece can be put to work in so many different ways, and looks great,” said Chad.Each made-to-order piece takes a painstaking 45 hours to make. According to a release from CHADHAUS: “Building each cupboard begins by selecting materials —  CHADHAUS chooses which board will be the left side, which board will be the right side, and most importantly which boards will become the doors.The boards for the doors are re-sawn into super thick veneers and pressed onto a plywood core —  combining the stunning appearance of the original board with the stability of plywood, which is essential for this scale of piece to avoid warping and twisting. Each wood is sourced from multiple locations throughout the Pacific Northwest — primarily the Willamette Valley. High levels of naturally-occurring glacial sediment (glacial till) throughout the region influence the grain pattern and color variation of the wood. The unique nature of subspecies and hybrids in the Pacific Northwest also contributes to these variations, sometimes casting hues of grey, purple, or red.”The beautiful piece stands out in any room.For more information, visit store.chadhaus.com.

New Music Monday: Deradoorian

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://B46.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/B2046/IMG1401.jpg" alt="first_img" /> The Absolute Worst Movies to Watch with a Date Learn Guitar (and Don’t Give Up) With the Fender Play App For much of the first decade and a half of the 2000s Angel Deradoorian seemed perpetually to be the bridesmaid but never the bride. She was a longtime member of Dirty Projectors, performed with Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, and collaborated with artists like Björk, Matmos, The Roots, and Vampire Weekend without releasing a full album of her own. 2009 did see the release of her EP, Mind Raft, so to say that Deradoorian released nothing under her own name would be inaccurate. This year—this coming Friday, in fact—will change that fact. Deradoorian’s The Expanding Flower Planet will be available digitally and on CD and vinyl through anticon. on August 21.Fans of Dirty Projectors will find in the album a likemindedness to Dave Longstreth’s idiosyncratic pop experiments. The Expanding Flower Planet bubbles with psychedelic energy while Deradoorian’s vocals glide from high to low and back. Though their presence is not immediately apparent, noted influences on the record include Alice Coltrane, Can, Dorothy Ashby, and Terry Riley. Their place in Deradoorian’s music comes through on tracks like opener “A Beautiful Woman.” The song’s rhythm section propels it forward, giving it motion, all while allowing space for the vocals to weave their way into the listener’s ears.Deradoorian also cites ancient traditions for their influence on The Expanding Flower Planet. East Indian, Middle Eastern, and traditional Japanese music all fell into a cosmic alignment of sorts with Deradoorian’s own musical direction. Like the jazz and krautrock influences, the traditional influences are most audible in the rhythm section. The foreboding “Komodo,” The Expanding Flower Planet‘s third early-released track, features a powerful beat backing a serene melody.Though it has been six year since Angel Deradoorian’s last release under her own name, it is clear she has been anything but lazy. Sessions for what would become The Expanding Flower Planet began in Baltimore as far back as 2011. The album is proof that Deradoorian’s patience and selectiveness has paid off in full. Though her vocals’ sheer power and range put them front and center, they work gorgeously in conjunction with the album’s rhythms and melodies.The Expanding Flower Planet will be out August 21 via anticon. and is available for preorder on the label’s site, Amazon, and iTunes.

Zach Goldstein’s search for the perfect sweatpant took long enough that he decided to craft a solution himself. Frustrated with the fit and look of traditional sweatpants, Goldstein was forever looking for a slimmer pair of tapered sweats. Eventually, that led to the formation of Public Rec Apparel, where Goldstein & his team worked for well over a year on a prototypes of a product that eventually raised nearly $180,000 on Kickstarter — the All Day Every Day Pant.Available in three colors (Heather Navy, Heather Charcoal and Black), the All Day Every Day Pant takes a style that’s traditionally been unflattering, and updates it for the guy on the go. In a mobile world, that’s noteworthy.“We set out to make a better-fitting pair of sweatpants by using waist and inseam sizing,” Goldstein said via email. The brand also uses a blend of nylon and spandex for comfort and a more formal look. All things considered, it’s a style move that’s drawn attention across the menswear community as “more comfortable alternative to jeans,” according to the brand.Hitting the sweet spot between comfort and style is a goal that can be quite tricky for most guys, but the brand aims to solve that conundrum — the All Day Every Day Pant can certainly work in an athletic setting, but it’s geared simply toward leisure activities.Related: OLIVERS Introducing New Movement KitWith the lines blurring between casual and formal, it’s a product that makes sense in today’s marketplace. And the brand isn’t stopping at sweatpants — they plan to introduce three more styles for the fall and winter season. For those who want new product sooner, they’ll also be releasing a T-shirt this summer.The tapered bottom keeps the silhouette clean, while the colors are muted enough that they should work with other like-minded style staples — like a slim pocket tee or even a blue Oxford and a grey crewneck sweater. For those wary of taking the leap into a style that’s not denim or chinos, Goldstein suggests reaching for a sharp bomber jacket.If Public Rec Apparel keeps getting positive feedback, plenty more might soon be wearing the All Day Every Day Pant — and other gear the company plans on churning out.Pick up your pair here.<img src="http://C60.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/C2060/IMG6252.jpg" alt="center_img" /> 1.
