HOMESTEAD, Fla. Daniel Castro Jersey . -- Nearly five years after an intense battle on the racetrack for the Sprint Cup championship, Carl Edwards found himself in the middle of a different kind of firestorm.The afternoon show on Boston sports talk radio station WEEI was broadcasting live from New Hampshire Motor Speedway. A day earlier, the hosts of the show started plugging their trip to the racetrack. The hosts, including a former major league baseball player and former NFL player, debated whether NASCAR drivers are athletes.They had some harsh words, with former NFL tight end Christian Fauria saying Carl Edwards is not an athlete.Right off the bat with Edwards on the air, the hosts came clean about what they said the day before about Edwards, who got to hear some of the comments. Fauria, one of the hosts, also said a day earlier that Joe Gibbs was the worst football coach he ever played for in his 13-year NFL career. Fauria and the other hosts laughed about that comment as well in welcoming Edwards to the show.Edwards, nearly on cue, smoothly joined the brofest: My god ... and this is the best Boston has?And then he rationalized with them: No. 1, you dont have to be an athlete to drive a race car. ... I might argue that guys in both of your sports are probably not the best athletes. Edwards explained that he believes his fitness level helps him on the hot, taxing days -- that it allows him to relax and focus instead of feeling worn out.Its hand-eye coordination, you have to be somewhat brave. There are a lot of risks, Edwards said. You have to be pretty technical. ... Its a semantic thing.Heres the deal: You want to get in my car and give it a shot? Its a skill set. Lets say Im the best athlete in the world, the decathlete gold medalist, I cant go line up in an NFL game and do it.Afterward, as he walked back to his hauler to get ready for qualifying, Edwards said he enjoyed the segment.It was great, Edwards said. At the end of the day, its cool for those guys to come to the track. Theyre not race savvy and ... to be able to talk to a new crowd and have those guys ask those questions and talk like that and bust right through the door, I think thats cool.In other words, Edwards appreciated the opportunity to promote his sport and perform at his best in a public setting.Now four months later, he gets to do that on the track. Just like that radio show, he appreciates the opportunity he has to add a Sprint Cup trophy to his mantel and participate in what could be an epic finish to the season.Hes had championship opportunities in the past, ones that ended in epic disappointment. He finished tied for second in points behind Tony Stewart in 2005. He was second behind Jimmie Johnson in 2008. And then in 2011, he finished tied with Stewart, losing the title on a tiebreaker as Stewart had five wins in the Chase. The final Stewart victory came with Edwards on his tail at Homestead-Miami Speedway.Edwards is one of the four drivers with an even shot at the title Sunday at Homestead. Whoever finishes best among Edwards, Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson and Joey Logano will be crowned the champion.Its an opportunity to go do that again, to go be a part of that weekend with everything on the line -- thats as good as it gets, Edwards said. When that race was over in 2011, I wanted to line it up again and do it again. Obviously I wanted the outcome to be different.I really enjoyed that competition, leading up to it, the whole week, qualifying, it was great.The 37-year-old Edwards ranks fifth among drivers with the most wins (28) who have not won a title. He is one of three drivers who have finished second multiple times in the standings without winning a championship.That could feel demoralizing, but its not too shabby for a driver who once passed out business cards looking for a ride before he got his start on a part-time basis in a truck in 2002.He can remember those days and what they taught him. Hes no Busch, who drove for Roush Fenway Racing at age 16. Hes no Johnson, who had some backing from Chevrolet to break into NASCAR and then joined Hendrick Motorsports at a time when it was one of the top teams in the sport. Hes no Logano, who signed a major NASCAR deal before he turned 18.Edwards crew chief, Dave Rogers, also knows what its like to struggle. His initial Cup crew chief job, with Jason Leffler in 2005, ended in 12 races, and he wound up in the Xfinity Series before working his way back atop a pit box in Cup.We have two things in common, Edwards said about him and Rogers. We have experience. We understand how to do the job.Because of everything weve done, were really grateful for the opportunity. We really value this chance to go win a championship. Thats cool. Its pure racing.Rogers, crew chief for Denny Hamlin last year and for Kyle Busch from late in the 2009 season through 2014, has never had a chance to win a title at Homestead.Weve both been in situations where weve come up short, and we know what its like to lose, Rogers said. Now we want to go down there and try to figure out how to win it. ... I know Carl was disappointed last year that he fell short.The 11 [team of Hamlin] was disappointed last year that we fell short. But now were teamed up together, our first year together, were going down there with the option to win it, and were just excited about it.If Edwards learned any lessons from his past championship runs, especially from 2011, hes not detailing them.I learned a lot [in 2011], he said. Not going into specifics about my mindset, Im really grateful for that experience. Yeah, I wanted to win just as bad as I want to win every year. But that experience -- I wouldnt trade it for anything else.Edwards wouldnt, however, say that he had to lose a championship in order to win one.You dont have to, he said. We happened to. One way to look at it is in 2005, we had a chance and I was like, Oh we will win it next year. In 2008, I was like, That one hurt a little bit.In 2011, I was like, I want to go again right now. [It means] I will be really appreciative of the championship. It will mean a lot to me because of those battles.Edwards and Johnson are the two drivers among the four who have not competed in the elimination-style Chase championship event. In each of the last two years, Edwards has been knocked out in the semifinal round.He has the best average finish of any of the finalists at Homestead as he tries to join an elite group of drivers -- Busch, Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski and Bobby Labonte -- who have won titles in both the Cup and the Xfinity Series.Really, this whole thing for me is simple: We have a shot to win the championship and weve got the team to do it, Edwards said. Im excited for the opportunity. The last two years ... you go to Homestead and youre like, Damn it, I know if we just were in that group we could have a shot at this.So now we get the chance. Thats as good as it gets. Its like passing out those business cards saying, Somebody just let me drive the car, please. Now we get to be a part of it. Its cool. Nolan Arenado Jersey . The visitors took a deserved lead in the 16th minute with midfielder Yohan Cabaye curling the ball beyond Adrian from inside the penalty area. Ryan McMahon Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.rockiesgearproshop.com/Rockie...is-Kids-Jersey/ . -- Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Alrdridge were again the go-to duo for the Trail Blazers against the Kings.With training camp under a month away, Canadiens coach Michel Therrien took time to talk to TSN 690 about the teams key players and off-season additions. The second–year bench boss shared his thoughts and expectations for the upcoming season on P.K. Subban, David Desharnais, Carey Price and George Parros from his first annual golf tournament in Terrebonne, Quebec. Hired by new Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin prior to the 2012-13 season, Therrien led the Habs to a worst-to-first turnaround as the team won the Northeast Division and secured the second overall seed in the East a year after having finished fifth in the division and dead last in the conference. Despite the impressive regular season, Canadiens fans and players were left with a bad taste in their mouth after a first round upset loss to the seventh place Ottawa Senators. Following the season, Bergevin and Therrien looked to address a key area of concern and added former Florida Panthers enforcer George Parros to both improve the teams toughness and take some of the burden off Brandon Prust. “Hes a presence, hes a good teammate, hes a good leader, hell stand up for his teammates like we all know,” Therrien said of the addition of the 6-foot-5, 228-pound Parros. “We filled a need because we didnt have those types of guys last year.” Besides Parros, the Canadiens made an addition off the ice that they hope will benefit them on it, in the hiring of former Chicago Blackhawks goaltending coach Stephane Waite. “Hes a guy who brings instant credibility,” Therrien said of Waite who won two Stanley Cups in the last four years with two different starting goalies in Antti Niemi and Corey Crawford. “I believe hes a guy thats going to help Carey. He brings a different voice, a different weight of words.” Coming off the third coonsecutive season in which Price has seen his goals against average increase, while his save percentage and win total diminished, Therrien admitted the Canadiens wanted to go “in a different direction” in order to get the best out of their young netminder. Greg Holland Jersey. “Carey‘s a guy who cares,” Therrien said. “I learned with Carey last year that hes a guy who cares for his team, a guy who cares for his teammates and Im convinced with the addition of Stephane Waite, its going to help a lot.” Therrien said he has “no doubts” that Price along with centre David Desharnais – whos point total dropped from 60 in 2011-12 to 28 last season have the ability to bounce back and that it is the responsibility of the coaches to help them do just that. On the blueline, the play of 24-year-old P.K. Subban was a big bright spot, as the defenceman was the first Canadien since Chris Chelios in 1989 to take home the Norris Trophy. “I think he matured a lot last year and he ended up having a great season and ended up winning the Norris Trophy, so you cant ask for a better season from P.K. Subban,” Therrien said. “But the good thing is that he is still young, still has room to improve his game…The thing I like about P.K. is that he wants to get better.” Therrien was also encouraged to see Lars Eller looking healthy, after the young centreman was lost for the remainder of the playoffs after taking a dangerous open-ice hit from Senators defenceman Eric Gryba in Montreals playoff opener. Coming off a career high in points, Eller was a pleasant surprise and filled a need in the middle of the ice. “Lars had a great season last year and he improved a lot from day one until the end of the year. He became an important player for us. I believe he learned a lot last year.” Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
