first_imgEllis explained that the USWNT players started their recovery the night of the Sweden game.”After the huddle, I just said to them, ‘The MVP right now is going to be your recovery and your hydration and your attention to detail,’ in terms of making sure they do that,” Ellis said. “I think our players are fantastic with that, in terms of knowing that the next game starts as soon as that game is over.” For comparison, USA had five days off between its final group game and first knockout-round match in the 2015 tournament.”I would have taken an extra day or two,” Kelley O’Hara said of the Spain game. “But no, it doesn’t matter. It’s all about getting the job done, whoever we’re playing, focus on that.”The winner of Monday’s game will play the winner of Sunday’s game between France and Brazil in the quarterfinals Friday in Paris. Women’s World Cup 2019: Full bracket, dates, times, TV channels, results for every match “We’re very used to a three-day rhythm,” Ellis told reporters Sunday. “It’s what we’ve done in certain tournaments, specifically for (that) purpose of having a consistent rhythm in what we do. And we can’t control, obviously, what our opponent has.” Related News The U.S. women’s national team enters the first round of the knockout stage with significantly less rest than its opponent, Spain, but coach Jill Ellis is unfazed by the quick transition. The Americans finished up their group stage finale with a 2-0 win over Sweden on Thursday and had just three days to rest before facing Spain the round of 16. Spain, on the other hand, played its final group game against China last Monday. Both of those games took place in Le Havre, and Monday’s match will be in Reims with temperatures in the 90s.last_img read more

first_imgBut it just makes sense to go ahead and “tank” by rebuilding through lottery picks and all of the first-round picks the Thunder just acquired from the Clippers.UPDATE: Wojnarowski reported later Saturday afternoon Westbrook and his agent are speaking with Thunder GM Sam Presti about Westbrook’s future, “including the possibility of a trade prior to the start of next season.” The report adds the two sides “understand that the time has likely come to explore trade possibilities for Westbrook.”Wojnarowski adds building around Westbrook and Steven Adams is an “unlikely scenario” for the Thunder. Before the Woj Bomb of the century dropped in the early Saturday morning hours, a different type of Woj Bomb was apparently ticking behind the scenes.If you don’t know by now, the Clippers were able to sign Kawhi Leonard in free agency and immediately after made a blockbuster deal for Paul George. But a similar deal was almost sent to the Raptors, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. In Woj’s story recapping the deal, he reports the Thunder were willing to trade Russell Westbrook and George to the Raptors, assuming Leonard stayed in Toronto. The deal was centered around Toronto’s Pascal Siakam.MORE: NBA players react to Kawhi Leonard, Paul George dealsFrom Wojnarowski:Had Presti been able to strike a deal for George with Toronto — and Leonard was willing to stay — George was believed to be willing to join the Raptors, sources said. Presti pursued a package of Russell Westbrook and George to the Raptors — with the NBA’s Most Improved Player, forward Pascal Siakam, as the centerpiece of a broader, asset-crippling deal — but Ujiri couldn’t keep up with the Clippers’ willingness to unload unprotected first-round picks into the middle of the next decade, league sources said. Simply, Toronto didn’t have the depth of picks it needed to get a deal done — nor the certainty that getting George would make Leonard stay with the Raptors, sources said.The Raptors could have been looking at adding Westbrook, with four years, $171 million left on his deal, and George to a roster that Leonard still might have fled. Toronto extended itself as far as it could for Leonard, but Ujiri could never be sure that the Thunder even wanted to do a deal with them — and perhaps were just using the Raptors to squeeze more out of the Clippers.Woj hints at the end there that Oklahoma City could have just been bluffing. But other reports indicate the Thunder are still looking to deal Westbrook, especially after losing George. With the West gaining two strong teams in Los Angeles, it seems unlikely the Thunder will be able to compete like they have in years past.So a complete rebuild could be on the way as ESPN’s Royce Young indicates.From Young:Now, like after Kevin Durant’s departure in 2016, all eyes are on Russell Westbrook, though this time, circumstances are different. The Thunder are comfortable embarking on a rebuild rather than trying to retool. But they will evaluate their options going forward, which include seeing what this team looks like with Westbrook leading the charge alongside Gallinari and Steven Adams, trading current pieces to try to add to the roster, or hitting reboot on the roster completely and trading Westbrook. The last option appears to be the most likely scenario.MORE: Kawhi Leonard free agency winners and losersThere’s also this report from Alex Kennedy.Don’t be surprised if the Thunder trade Russell Westbrook. A number of NBA executives believe it’s a possibility. Oklahoma City could decide to blow up their roster and completely rebuild.— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) July 6, 2019Westbrook turns 31 in November and has two years remaining on his contract. He’ll earn $38.15 million in 2019-20 and $40.6 million in 2020-21. While he’s no doubt a star player, that salary will make it difficult for most teams to try and make some cap space available for a deal to happen.A few teams that make sense from a salary cap position and assets position include the Timberwolves, Heat and Pistons. Miami seems like a strong contender considering Jimmy Butler just joined. Plus, the Heat have an expiring deal with Goran Dragic, and reportedly had a deal that involved him fall apart.There haven’t been any official reports as to what teams are interested in Westbrook. Those will likely come later as the Thunder decide what they want to do with their roster. As Young mentioned above, OKC could just play out this season and see how Westbrook works with Danilo Gallinari and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.last_img read more

first_imgThe official ticket sales for the qualifying match between B&H and Israel begin this morning, but the most persistent fans from Zenica have already begun a row in front of the branch of Centrotrans in Zenica.In their usual tradition, the first fans of our national football team, “armed“ with patience and food and drink,  arrived yesterday afternoon and took their places in front of the branch where the ticket sales began today.A group of several fans from Zenica decided to spend a night in front of the branch in Zenica in order to buy tickets at the regular price, considering that the game is of great interest. We believe that the number of fans will be much larger before ticket sales begin.Fans are increasingly faced with the problem of ticket prices, given that tickets are being resold, and sometimes prices are extremely high compared with the regular price at the Centrotrans branch.(Source: read more

first_imgThe German Michael Brockers wholeheartedly supported the national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina last night.Michael was born in Moenchengladbach, but the life path took him to BiH. He was in Sarajevo with the army in 2005 and eventually he decided to stay because he liked what he saw. While others are looking for opportunities to escape from BiH and go to western countries, he had a different vision.“People in BiH are amazing. Of course that the situation here is not the same as in Germany, but the warmth of people made me stay. I started seeing then as my own people, I liked what I saw and felt in Sarajevo,” said Michael while walking in the center of Athens, wearing a fan scarf of BiH.“I have been following the national team for years. I went to many matches, this year I was in Brussels, Luxembourg, I have been to every match in Zenica… I love this national team and this country,” Michael said.Michael said that he cannot answer the question which player is his favorite.“I cannot answer that. I love them all equally, regardless of their position or the club they play for. I am not one of those who love only Džeko or only Pjanić, or someone else.” Michael revealed that he also got to love one club in BiH. “Sarajevo! I love that club,” the German added, while showing his membership card of the Bordeaux team. “That doesn’t mean I hate Željo, though,” he added, laughing.Michael said he had the most beautiful experience in Kaunas. “I have been to many matches, but Kaunas was a special night. “That was the first time BiH qualified for a major competition and I was thrilled.” Michael said that he volunteers in the daily center for children and adults with special needs in Visoko. He travels every day, at his own expense, to help others. He is a big fan of BIH and has one message for people in the country:“We are all the same and we must look forward. We must be clever and lead this country towards better times.”(Source: read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington City Council established new rates for water and sewer for city customers starting July 1 in hopes of reversing the continuing depletion of its utility reserve funds. The council approved two ordinances at its regular scheduled meeting Tuesday evening. The measure passed 4-2 and required the vote of Wellington mayor Shelley Hansel for their passage. The Wellington mayor only casts a vote in order to break a tie or has the option of voting if an ordinance does not muster a majority.The city electrical rates were not addressed at this time.The new water rate structure is as follows: •The minimum charge for all water sold to individual customers within the city limits will be $15.50 per month for the first 2,000 gallons used and an additional $5.42 per thousand gallons used thereafter. Currently, the rate is $10 per month for the first 2,000 gallons used and $3.39 increase per thousand gallons used thereafter.•The minimum charge for all water sold to customers outside the city limits will be $16.40 per month for the first 2,000 gallons and an additional $6.03 per thousand gallons used thereafter.•Customers buying water in bulk from water and sewer system of the city shall be charged $10 per 1,000 gallons of water.•Rural customers of Rural Water Districts 1, 2, 3, and the City of Mayfield will be charged 1.25 times the rate established for customers being served within the city.•For all bills for water service that become due and payable on or around January 1, 2017 and annually thereafter will have a standard escalator of 2.25 percent which will take effect on the existing rates. The governing body may take action, by resolution, to adjust or eliminate the escalator for that particular year.The new sewer rate structure is as follows:•The base rate will be $14.59 each month, plus $7.61 for each whole thousand gallons of average monthly water use by such customers for the months of December, January and February. The old structure with a base rate of $7.56 each month and $5.58 for each whole thousand gallons of water used by customers thereafter.•••••So what does this mean to water and sewer customer in Wellington?The city released a comparison figure table with the current Wellington water and waste water rates, the future rates (2016 proposed) and comparisons with Mulvane, Kingman and Burlington. Click here for table. According to this table, if individual city customers use the minimum of 2,000 gallons of water per month in Wellington, they would be charged $10. Starting in July, they would pay $15.50 which would give them rates higher than Mulvane or Kingman but less than Burlington and Derby.For city customers using 20,000 gallons of water in Wellington, they would pay $113.06 per month instead of $72.02 per month. That would put them higher than Derby, Mulvane and Kingman but not as high as Burlington. On the highest echelon of 300 gallons of water, Wellington would again be lower than Derby and Burlington but higher than Mulvane and Kingman.The sewer rates most certainly puts Wellington on the high end of the four communities.Hansel, Kelly Green, Kip Etter and Jan Korte voted for the rate increase ordinances. Vince Wetta and Jim Valentine voted against the rate increases.The passage of both ordinances came after considerable debate.Sumner Newscow will provide what was said at the meeting in an impending article.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
