Cam Ward zog sich aus den Hurricanes zurück

Ein Star-Spieler zieht sich normalerweise an seinem ruhmreichsten Ort zurück, wie zum Beispiel Cam Ward aus Kanada. Obwohl er in der vergangenen Saison für die Blackhawks spielte, war seine schönste Zeit, als er ein Carolina Hurricanes Trikot trug. Er spielte 13 Saisons für die Hurricanes und half ihnen, die Meisterschaft 2006 zu gewinnen.

Als legendärer Torhüter wurde er bei den Hurricanes sehr gelobt. Nachdem er sie 2006 zum Stanley Cup geführt hatte, wurde er auch zum MVP für die Playoffs des Jahres ernannt. Daher hat er ein tiefes Gespür für die Mannschaft. Deshalb unterzeichnete er einen Eintagesvertrag mit ihnen, bevor er sein Günstige NHL Trikots auszog. Er wollte sich als Hurricanes-Spieler zurückziehen.

Gleichzeitig stimmten die Hurrikane seiner Entscheidung zu. Ihr General Manager, Don Donald, kommentierte ihn in einer offiziellen Erklärung: „In den letzten zehn Jahren war er der Eckpfeiler unseres Teams. Er hat nicht nur sein Bestes auf dem Platz gegeben, sondern auch Anleitung für unser Trainingslager gegeben Es ist eine große Ehre für unser Team, dass er sich hier zurückzieht. „

Zweifle niemals an der Entschlossenheit eines Veteranen

Es ist nicht zu leugnen, dass Radfahren eine Sportart ist, die viel Energie erfordert. So haben junge Radfahrer einen deutlichen Vorteil gegenüber älteren Radfahrern: Sie haben in der Regel mehr Energie. Diese Regel gilt jedoch nicht für Alejandro Valverde, der gerade das Vuelta a España Radtrikot gewonnen hat.

Valverdes Karriere ist eine Legende. Seit er 2011 dem Movistar-Team beigetreten ist, hat er viele Auszeichnungen erhalten, darunter die Meisterschaft bei der Spanien-Rundfahrt 2009 und die Weltmeisterschaft im Radsport 2018. Selbst jetzt denken viele, dass er sein Movistar Team Radtrikot ausziehen und in den Ruhestand treten sollte, aber das tut er nicht kümmern sich nicht um diese Vorurteile. Er glaubt, dass er immer noch die Fähigkeit hat, mit jungen Radfahrern zu konkurrieren, und das tat er auch: Er gewann die siebte Etappe der diesjährigen Tour of Spain.

Zweifle niemals an der Entschlossenheit eines Veteranen. Vielleicht sind sie nicht so energisch wie junge Radfahrer, aber sie sind viel entschlossener als sie. Und nach Jahren des Trainings und Wettkampfs haben sie mehr Erfahrung und nüchternen Verstand. Zum Teil sind sie in der Lage, die Meisterschaft zu gewinnen.

Ne doutez jamais de la détermination d’un ancien combattant

Il est indéniable que le cyclisme est un sport qui demande beaucoup d’énergie. Les jeunes cyclistes ont donc un avantage distinct sur les cyclistes plus âgés: ils ont généralement plus d’énergie. Cependant, cette règle ne s’applique pas à Alejandro Valverde, qui vient de remporter le Maillot Cyclisme Tour d`Espagne.

La carrière de Valverde est une légende. Depuis qu’il a rejoint l’équipe Movistar en 2011, il a remporté de nombreux honneurs, notamment le championnat du Tour d’Espagne en 2009 et le championnat du monde de cyclisme en 2018. Même à l’heure actuelle, de nombreuses personnes pensent qu’il devrait retirer son Maillot Cyclisme Movistar Team et prendre sa retraite, il ne vous souciez pas de ces préjugés. Il pense pouvoir encore rivaliser avec les jeunes cyclistes, et il l’a fait: il a remporté la septième étape du Tour of Spain de cette année.

Par conséquent, ne doutez jamais de la détermination d’un ancien combattant. Peut-être ne sont-ils pas aussi dynamiques que les jeunes cyclistes, mais ils sont beaucoup plus déterminés qu’ils ne le sont. Et après des années d’entraînement et de compétition, ils ont plus d’expérience et sont plus sobres. Dans une certaine mesure, ils sont plus capables de remporter le championnat.

Non dubitare mai della determinazione di un veterano

Non si può negare che il ciclismo sia uno sport che richiede molta energia. Quindi i giovani ciclisti hanno un netto vantaggio rispetto ai ciclisti più anziani: generalmente hanno più energia. Tuttavia, questa regola non si applica ad Alejandro Valverde, che ha appena vinto la maglie ciclismo Vuelta a España.

La carriera di Valverde è una leggenda. Da quando è entrato a far parte del Movistar Team nel 2011, ha vinto numerosi riconoscimenti, tra cui il campionato del Tour of Spain nel 2009 e il campionato mondiale di ciclismo nel 2018. Anche ora, molte persone pensano che dovrebbe togliersi la maglie ciclismo Movistar Team e ritirarsi, ma non lo fa ci tengo a questi pregiudizi. Crede di avere ancora la capacità di competere con i giovani ciclisti, e lo ha fatto: ha vinto la settima tappa del Tour of Spain di quest’anno.

Pertanto, non dubitare mai della determinazione di un veterano. Forse non sono così energici come i giovani ciclisti, ma sono molto più determinati di loro. E dopo anni di allenamento e competizione, hanno più esperienza e mente sobria. In una certa misura, sono più in grado di vincere il campionato.

Cam Ward päätti jäädä eläkkeelle Hurrikaanit

Tähtien pelaaja jää eläkkeelle kaikkein loistavimmassa paikassaan, kuten Cam Ward Kanadasta. Vaikka hän pelasi Blackhawksissa viime kaudella, hänen loistavin aika tuli, kun hän käytti Carolina Hurricanes Pelipaita. Hän pelasi hurrikaaneilla 13 vuodenaikaa ja auttoi heitä voittamaan vuoden 2006 mestaruuden.

Legendaarisena maalivahtina hän sai paljon kiitosta Hurrikaanien luona. Saatuaan hänet Stanley Cupiin vuonna 2006, hänet nimitettiin myös MVP: ksi kyseisen vuoden pudotuspeleissä. Siksi hänellä on syvä tunne joukkueesta. Siksi hän allekirjoitti heidän kanssaan yhden päivän sopimuksen ennen kuin hän riisui NHL Pelipaidat. Hän halusi jäädä eläkkeelle Hurrikaanien pelaajana.

Samaan aikaan hirmumyrskyt olivat yhtä mieltä hänen päätöksestään. Heidän pääjohtaja Don Donald kommentoi häntä virallisessa lausunnossa: „Viimeisen vuosikymmenen aikana hän on ollut joukkueemme kulmakivi. Hän ei vain antanut parhaansa kentällä, vaan antoi myös opastusta harjoitusleirillemme. Joten se on suuri kunnia joukkueellemme saada hänet eläkkeelle täällä. „

Cam Ward valgte å trekke seg fra Hurricanes

En stjernespiller trekker seg vanligvis tilbake på sitt herligste sted, som Cam Ward fra Canada. Selv om han spilte for Blackhawks forrige sesong, kom den herligste tiden hans da han hadde på seg en Carolina Hurricanes drakt. Han spilte for Hurricanes i 13 sesonger og hjalp dem med å vinne mesterskapet i 2006.

Som en legendarisk keeper vant han mye skryt da han var med orkanene. Etter å ha ledet dem til Stanley Cup i 2006, ble han også kåret til MVP for sluttspillet det året. Derfor har han en dyp følelse for laget. Derfor signerte han en dagskontrakt med dem før han tok av seg nhl drakter. Han ønsket å trekke seg som en Hurricanes-spiller.

Samtidig var orkanerne enige om hans avgjørelse. Daglig leder deres, Don Donald, kommenterte ham i en offisiell uttalelse: „I løpet av det siste tiåret har han vært teamets hjørnestein. Han gjorde ikke bare sitt beste på banen, men ga også veiledning for treningsleiren vår. Så det er en stor ære for teamet vårt å få ham til å trekke seg her. „

New Balance FuelCell Propel Performance Review

The New Balance FuelCell Propel is the first neutral cushioned every day runner using New Balance’s FuelCell cushioning technology. FuelCell was previously featured on the shoe Kawhi Leonard was wearing during the NBA playoffs, the New Balance OMN1s. Previous iterations of FuelCell, including the OMNI1s, had a reputation as a bouncy but very firm cushioning system. So has New Balance tweaked the formula?

FuelCell is a nitrogen-injected TPU foam. The nitrogen part is what makes it unique versus Adidas’ Boost or Saucony’s Everun. Normal air is 78% nitrogen which means it’s not a huge departure from using air. New Balance’s scientific explanation is that nitrogen doesn’t expand/contract as much as air. It’s similar to the air in your tires and why using nitrogen to fill car tires is now a thing. So how does FuelCell work when running multiple miles on varied terrain? Let’s find out.

Jodi: Snappy is the word we were throwing around in Chris and I’s detailed look video a few weeks ago. Once I laced up the New Balance FuelCell Propel, I always felt like I had an extra spring in my step. And it was a feeling I had from mile 1 all the way through mile 9. You can’t say that about all cushioning systems. I love a good bouncy cushioning setup, especially when it’s ample and equally tuned from heel to toe like the FuelCell used in the Propel.

Drew: As Jodi mentioned, FuelCell has great bounce and energy return. I noticed that propulsive feeling you get with the bounciest cushioning setups. FuelCell also provided a nice responsive ground feel. It doesn’t feel high off the ground even though there’s ample cushion. Initially, I questioned if it was enough cushioning for long runs. But when I did a few 10+ mile runs in them the cushion didn’t ever bottom out or feel flat. And the FuelCell in these packs a great bounce for 200s, 400s, or other speed work on the track. This nice implementation of FuelCell has me looking at buying other models utilizing the tech (like the Tekela and Rebel).

Jodi: I spend most of my runs in your typical suburban neighborhood. The rubber outsole was not only flexible but durable. The lugs are spaced out enough to allow rocks and other rogue tree debris to shake free when I’d run across them. And the rubber looks like it’s going to last quite some time. After 50+ miles, I’ve lost some texture but all of the lugs are still accounted for.

Drew: My traction is wearing away faster than Jodi’s over the same amount of miles. I’ve almost lost the 3 lugs closest to the forefoot flex point. That may partially have to do with where I land. Overall, it’s not a ton of wear and I’d expect to get the typical 300 miles out of this shoe. The traction itself worked great in all conditions. Trails, gravel, and driving rainstorms didn’t cause any issues.

Jodi: I felt like the New Balance FuelCell Propel has support covered. The heel is very structured but padded. It swoops away from your achilles so there’s no weird pressure points (for me). The midsole wraps up around your foot a bit so you’re tucked in nicely. There is a nice little swooping design stitched into the upper along both sides. At first I thought it was just for looks, but the design also served the purpose of giving the upper a bit more shape and structure.

Drew: I did have a couple pressure points on the collar of the shoe but I’ll touch on that during the fit section. I felt the support was awesome for a neutral runner. Jodi’s right about sitting inside the midsole. It really helps lock your heel in place even with the laces tied fairly loose. The other part of the support I thought really helped was the wide base. The base flares out on both sides of the forefoot and heel so you end up with four large outriggers. It’s something I’ve never considered including on a running shoe but it made a noticeable difference in a bunch of circumstances. If you’re the type of runner who needs support but doesn’t need an actual support shoe, try out the FuelCell Propel.

Jodi: The Propel has a very traditional build as far as running shoes go. It did get a more modern touch with the collar arching away from your achilles. Good old-fashioned open celled mesh is the primary body material. It’s not fancy but it gets the job done. It’s worth noting that the tongue is semi-attached. This particular feature didn’t bother me at all and you can’t tell that they were trying for a bootie upper at first glance. But it is something to look out for if you’re one of those runners who despises attached tongues.

One of my favorite parts about the shoe is the laces. They’re flat and have the perfect amount of stretch. I was able to tie them once, NOT double knot them, and never give them another thought. That almost never happens and it’s sincerely appreciated.

Drew: I have to give those stretchy laces some love too. They’re just always a welcome addition to any running shoe and New Balance as a brand is as devoted to them as I am. Jodi already covered the mesh body (nicely breathable) and semi-attached tongue (didn’t notice it all) so I’ll focus on the back third of the shoe. The ankle area is made of a sort of t-shirt material. It’s not cotton, more like a tech fit t-shirt. It does retain moisture and get stinky in humid climates. The stinkiness went away with one cycle in the washing machine but I know that sort of thing can be a pet peeve for some runners.

Jodi: This is a runner that I felt was made for my specific foot type. I didn’t have a single blister or inkling of a hotspot arise on any of my piggies. I never had a run where I felt like my feet were being suffocated. I didn’t have to think about what socks I was going to wear due to space issues. And trust me, that is not something I can say about most runners given my wide feet. For me in particular, the fit category can be a struggle for my foot type. So for all the wide footers out there, New Balance has taken care of us with the FuelCell Propel.

Drew:  So we’re just casually calling toes “piggies” in reviews now? SMH. I can’t support this. Sigh. Back to our regularly scheduled programming…

I have a narrow foot and had plenty of room for foot splay. The FuelCell Propel didn’t feel too wide or like there was too much space. It’s often hard for brands to please both wide and narrow footers but New Balance achieved that balance here.

The only Fit problem I had was with the collar area. There were two small hotspots on the left side of each collar. Which is weird because the lack of symmetry is unusual for shoes. There are two small knots of thread on the left side of each shoe. They’re located right at the top of the collar underneath the tech fit type material. On my right foot, this didn’t bug me at all. On my left foot, I got two blisters. One on the underside of my ankle and the other along the backside of my ankle. Whether these hotspots affect you is wholly dependent on your ankle shape. My ankle sits low and that’s why they hurt me. Luckily, they’re not huge hot spots and wearing socks that covered my ankle solved the problem.

Jodi: I’ve spent the last couple weeks basically gushing about the New Balance FuelCell Propel to anyone and everyone who has asked about what kind of runner they should pick up. At $110, it doesn’t break the bank and you’re getting your money’s worth. This air jordan 1 is definitely staying in my current running rotation.

Drew: This shoe is a great value at $110. It’s super versatile and will likely become a key part of your rotation if you buy it. Check and make sure you don’t have the same hotspot issue as me because if you don’t, you’re about to get a really awesome cushioning setup and a traditional upper that will tackle whatever training you have planned each day.

Thanks to New Balance for sending us pairs to test. New Balance was not given any editorial control of the review. This review is based on our weartesters’ experiences using the shoes for speed workouts, trail runs, treadmill training, long runs, casual wear, and more.

Derby Los Angeles Cityja zaslužuje očekivati

Los Angeles Clippersi prošlu su sezonu plasirali u play-off bez All-Star igrača, što je možda i razlog zašto se Kawhi Leonard, FMVP, pridružio timu. Kad je Leonard ovog ljeta skinuo Toronto Raptors dres i pridružio se Clippersima, svi su bili šokirani njegovom odlukom.

U međuvremenu, još jedna momčad iz Los Angelesa, Los Angeles Lakers, također je dobila pojačan učinak u izvansezoni. Jer Anthony Davis odlučio je obući Los Angeles Lakers dres. Davis je jedan od najboljih centara u ligi. Stoga, unatoč porazu Lejkersa u bitci za Leonarda, imaju snage natjecati se za prvenstvo, nakon što su istovremeno imali dva All-Star igrača, Lebrona Jamesa i Anthonyja Davisa.

Kao rezultat, lokalni derbi sljedeće sezone u Los Angelesu može se radovati. Lakersi i Clippersi trenutno imaju jednaku snagu i siguran sam da će biti fantastični. Njihova bitka bit će kao da Mars udari o zemlju.

Los Angeles City Derby ansaitsee odottamisen

Los Angeles Clippers teki pudotuspelejä viime kaudella ilman All-Star-pelaajia, minkä vuoksi FMVP: n Kawhi Leonard liittyi joukkueeseen. Kun Leonard riisui Toronto Raptors Pelipaita ja liittyi Clippersiin kesällä, kaikki olivat järkyttyneitä päätöksestään.

Samaan aikaan toinen Los Angeles -joukkue, Los Angeles Lakers, sai myös vauhtia muuttokaudella. Koska Anthony Davis päätti käyttää Los Angeles Lakers Pelipaita. Davis on yksi liigan parhaista keskuksista. Siksi huolimatta Lakersin tappiosta taistelussa Leonardista, heillä on voimaa kilpailla mestaruudesta, kun heillä on kaksi All-Star-pelaajaa, Lebron James ja Anthony Davis samanaikaisesti.

Seurauksena on, että ensi kauden paikallinen derby Los Angelesissa on asia, jota odotan. Lakersilla ja Clippersillä on nyt sama vahvuus, ja olen varma, että he ovat fantastisia. Heidän taistelunsa on kuin Mars lyö maata.
