ng Jeff [Gordon] for most wins [at Hendrick with 93]. I thin Antworten

Collingwood legend Peter Daicos hopes the pressure to live up to the family name will drive his son Josh to great things in the AFL.The Magpies added to their long list of father-son recruits in Fridays draft, snaffling Josh Daicos and Callum Brown, the son of former captain and premiership player Gavin Brown.Few are more beloved at Collingwood than Daicos Snr, a 250-game premiership player and five-time leading goalkicker whose highlight reel is overflowing with freakish goals.But hes confident the weight of expectation wont be too much of a burden for Josh, who was taken with pick No.57.Its going to earn you a couple of opportunities and it can either be your greatest ally or your greatest foe, Daicos Sr said on Monday.Pressure sometimes is a good thing because it will make you probably work a little bit harder to live up to that pressure. I think it can be a good thing for him if its used the right way.A small midfielder who can drift forward and kick goals, the younger Daicos has been likened to Western Bulldogs star Caleb Daniel for his clean hands and intelligent ball use.But while hes determined to forge his own identity as a footballer, hes no stranger to his dads boundary line heroics.Id be lying if I didnt show him a couple of the tricks, sitting off the boundaries, Daicos Sr said with a grin.Its like any of the kids growing up, they want to take the big mark, take the speccy and run to the boundary and kick that goal.I think hes more in tune with football today, contemporary football, and thats centering the ball. Thats something I didnt think about too much.Neither Daicos nor Brown will wear the same guernsey number as their famous fathers - in line with their requests.Daicos will wear Gavin Browns No.26, while Callum Brown will wear No.17.The Magpies were forced to take Brown a little earlier than they might have hoped at pick No.35 after a bid from North Melbourne, ironically the club where his father works as a development coach.When I left work (on Friday) they sort of didnt give me any inclination at all, Brown Sr said.I thought hang on a minute, thats North. It was a bit of a shock to be honest.The Magpies used pick No.30 to take utility Sam McLarty, who was born profoundly deaf and wears a bionic ear implant.Collingwood also drafted small forward Kayle Kirby, who says he was inspired by the success of other Aboriginal footballers.I didnt just do it for myself, I did it for my family and my mob, he said.Theyre more proud than I am, to be honest.China Shoes Wholesale . Despite the cost, effort and an improved steroid test, its possible that very few -- if any -- positives will be detected, Dr. Richard Budgett told The Associated Press in an interview. "We just dont know what the results from Torino will be," Budgett said. China Shoes Cheap . -- Matt Ryan needed one of the best games of his career to lead the Falcons and their depleted offence out of their three-game losing streak last week. . 31, the CFL club announced Monday. The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but took over the offensive co-ordinators duties in July. Cheap Shoes From China . LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59. China Shoes Free Shipping . -- Josh Sterk scored once and set up two more as the Oshawa Generals edged the visiting Belleville Bulls 3-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action.MARTINSVILLE, Va. -- Chad Knaus swears his team, and his driver Jimmie Johnson, dont obsess over Johnson potentially earning a record-tying seventh championship.He says they worry about winning the next race, earning Johnsons 80th career victory after No. 79 came Sunday at Martinsville Speedway.But he must not read Johnsons Twitter account. Johnson has no hashtag about the number of wins. But he often puts in his tweets:#Se7enOn Twitter, a person cant add emphasis to a hashtag. But after Sunday, Johnsons #Se7en will take a new meaning over the next three weeks.His Goodys Fast Relief 500 victory propelled him into the true championship conversation as he earned one of the four berths available in the Homestead finale for the eight remaining Chase for the Sprint Cup drivers. Johnson, any Chase drivers who win upcoming events at Texas and Phoenix and then those best in points will fill the remaining four spots.Tying Dale Earnhardt and Richard Petty with a record seven career titles would seem a ridiculous notion for Johnson years ago when the off-road racer made a nondescript entrance into NASCAR as a good-but-not-great Xfinity Series driver.Id love to do it, Johnson said. Honestly, just thrilled to have a shot at it. Thats all you can hope for, is just have a shot at it.Johnson never dreamed of winning seven titles. While he did guarantee potential sponsors back in the day he would win in Cup, that was more youthful enthusiasm and not a prediction. But once he was paired with Chad Knaus and put in cars that required his excellent car control, Johnson became unstoppable as he won five titles from 2006-2010 and then another in 2013.Johnson also has enjoyed a ridiculous turnaround in 2016 alone. He had a 15-race stretch where he posted just three top-5 finishes starting in April at Bristol and running through early August at Watkins Glen.Sometimes youre not as good as you look, youre not as bad as you look, team owner Rick Hendrick said. I dont think we were as bad. Now, we were pretty terrible back April, May.We started picking up speed, getting to the front, leading some laps. We could see it coming. ... I felt like we could be at Homestead, but theres no guarantee. There are a whole lot of people in the garage that thought theyd be at Homestead that wont be at Homestead.Hendrick played a role. He spent more time with the team, its engineers, its crew chiefs and its drivers.The turnaround, Im way impressed with, especially from where we came from to where weve ended up, Johnson said. Its one thing to see progress, but to advance and go back to leading a lot of laps and contending for many wins is very, very impressive.We couldnt have done it on our own. It took all four teams, then it took all the departments at Hendrick. Honestly, it took Rick Hendrick showing his commitment. For him to sit in the wind tunnel for a 24?hour shift with all the teams, his commitment. He couldnt help being in that wind tunnel, but his presence there, the message that sent to the organization.Even the win Sunday had its ridiculous moments for Johnson. He seemed surprised when Denny Hamlin slammed into him to make a pass, feeling as if he was racing hard but not worthy of such an aggressive move. The dammage, luckily for Johnson, just needed a little bit of fixing.ddddddddddddIm puzzled that he had to move me like he did, Johnson said. The inside is a preferred lane. I gave him the inside.I had a little something working on the top. Theres a line of cars behind him. I just cant roll over.Then with about 140 laps to go, Johnson was among four cars that had not pitted during a lengthy green-flag run when Carl Edwards blew a tire and slammed the wall. Struggling to make sure he had enough fuel, Johnson accidentally stalled his car on the backstretch.He realized he had hit the wrong switch, turning off the electronic control unit for the fuel injection system. Johnson lost only three spots because only a few cars remained on the lead lap, and he got the car re-fired before he lost a lap. Somehow his car had enough fuel to make it around for several circuits before NASCAR opened pit road as it tried to get the scoring figured out.Johnson restarted fourth -- his team thought he should have started a little higher, but after nearly 20 minutes and 29 caution laps of NASCAR confusion in its scoring tower, the team didnt have time to create more of a ruckus -- and then owned the final green-flag segment of the race.its unbelievable were here with the trophy, Johnson said. We were parked on the backstretch with a hundred [or so] to go.Thankfully, we had some track position at the time, so the pace car didnt come to me and put me down a lap. That would have been a huge problem for us.It took Johnson 23 laps to motor to the front, where he remained for the final 92 circuits. A hard-charging Brad Keselowski finished second with three frustrated Joe Gibbs Racing drivers -- Hamlin, Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch -- finishing third through fifth.That JGR trio remained ahead of the Chase bubble. The ones currently outside: Joey Logano (ninth), Kevin Harvick (20th), Kurt Busch (22nd) and Edwards (36th).While the JGR and Toyota drivers dominated the regular season, Johnson could now have the last laugh in his Chevrolet.Its not about the numbers, Knaus said. Its not about seven. Its not about tying Dale. Its not about tying Richard. Its not about beating Dale or Richard, beating Jeff [Gordon] for most wins [at Hendrick with 93]. I think you guys miss what were about.We want to go win Texas. You follow me? We want to go win Homestead. We want to go win Phoenix. Then, guess what, in a few months Daytona is rolling around, we want to win that one, too. Thats the way we approach every single race. Its not about what were eclipsing.Knaus can keep saying it, but he will convince few of it. Of course, lets be clear: Johnson doesnt need to win a seventh to cement him in NASCAR history. It only will enhance it.Seven is a number to a lot of people, but to me hes already one of the all-time greats, four-time Sprint Cup champion Jeff Gordon said after what likely was the last race of his career. I think that number would maybe just solidify that in the history books maybe for some others, and maybe it would be really special to Jimmie personally.Im sure it would. Thats amazing. Seven. ' ' '
