lready been forewarned: `You better be prepared when you come in that team meeting room.Competiti Antworten

A year ago, if you were to make a bet on whether or not legendary South Korean player Kang Ambition Chan-yong would make his first World Championship or retire, the odds would have most likely sided with the latter. Today, however, Ambition has not only made the World Championship on his new club, Samsung Galaxy, but hes possibly playing some of the best League of Legends of his career, captaining these upstarts from SSG to the quarterfinals as the top seed coming out of the Group of Death.ESPN spoke to Ambition following the teams 5-1 group stage run that was capped off by a 23-minute blowout of Europes Splyce.Generally speaking, coming into the tournament we first thought that the group stage was going to be really difficult, Ambition said. But we finally made it through, and were hoping to reach the semifinals, at least.Ambition has been a part of some of the most talented teams in South Korean League history. He was famously the mid laner for the MiG/Azubu/CJ Entus Blaze squad that won the first domestic league in South Korea and were always considered a threat to make a deep run in a tournament. Unfortunately, through his four years of playing on the Blaze/CJ Entus roster, he was never able to make it to the pinnacle of international competition.Looking at the record weve been making, I think Samsung Galaxy is the strongest team Ive been on [in my career], he said.Transitioning has been a key part to Ambitions renaissance in 2016. Not switching teams from CJ Entus to Samsung Galaxy, but switching positions, too, as Ambition was a mid laner for the first few years of his career before becoming a jungler in the 2015 season on CJ Entus. After having a limited champion pool and so-so play through his first year as a jungler, hes come into his own, taking over the responsibilities of being Samsungs veteran leader this year.There are a lot of factors that made me change to [becoming a] jungler, he said. The [number] one thing was that I was pretty confident to play as a jungler. I was confident I could become a really good jungler, and from a longtime perspective, I thought I could perform better as a jungler [than a mid laner].When asked if he feels whether he is one of the best junglers in the world currently, he said yes.Samsungs road to Worlds wasnt an easy one. After being terrorized by KT Rolster throughout the entire year without picking up a single map win, KT once again thwarted SSG by eliminating them in the summer domestic playoffs in a one-sided sweep. In the Korean Regional Qualifiers, however, Ambition & Co. were able to strike back with a best-of-five victory that pried the KT Rolster monkey off their back, opening the doors to the World Championship.Samsung [started] from the bottom, Ambition said. People could watch us grow, and I think thats why [they] think were such a fun team [to watch].Honestly speaking, I dont care who we meet in the [quarterfinals], he said. But I think Edward Gaming is the strongest out of the second-place teams from groups.A domestic champion, IEM world champion, and on the road to a Summoners Cup title, Ambition has nearly completed everything possible. However, one moment still sticks out: Lee Faker Sang-hyeoks debut game in the spring of 2013, where he solo-killed Ambition in the mid lane and almost instantly took the title of the worlds best mid from that second forward. Three years later, he might finally have a chance to make amends.Of course I want to get revenge against Faker, he said. But I think its more important to win the game than focusing on [revenge].I think its not just luck [were here], Ambition said. I think Samsung is one of the top teams among the 16 teams here. Were proving ourselves by our performance. Hines Ward Youth Jersey . Brazilian national coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has confirmed that the veteran goalkeeper is set to join Toronto on loan, saying it will help him be ready for the World Cup. Donnie Shell Womens Jersey . Jane Virtanen scored two, and Alex Roach and Elliott Peterson rounded out the offence for the Hitmen (40-15-6). Brady Brassart chipped in with three assists.

According to a report from the Winnipeg Free Press, the Bombers will name Acting GM Kyle Walters to the post full time. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Coach Mike Mularkey warned the Tennessee Titans 10 draft picks.They better study hard because he planned to call on them during a team meeting the next day to test their knowledge of the playbook and didnt want any rookie embarrassed.Sure enough, Mularkey brought the rookies in front of their teammates where he pulled a surprise by asking them to spell instead of questions about pass protections and quarterback blitzes.A spelling bee in an NFL team meeting?Titans defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau had never heard of such a thing in his 57 years in the league, but Mularkey got what he wanted.The spelling bee left the Titans laughing for days, especially the memory of one rookie misspelling physical, while also ensuring Tennessees newest players pored over their playbooks.I think outside the box all the time of what can I do differently that will keep them constantly on edge and keep thinking, Mularkey said.Being hired as an NFL head coach even once isnt easy.And third chances are pretty rare, and Mularkey and his career 18-39 record has gotten just that in Tennessee after two seasons with Buffalo and one in Jacksonville.Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk saw enough of Mularkey as he finished the final nine games last season as interim coach to give him the job after interviewing a handful of coaches in January.Her decision made Mularkey the 16th man hired as a permanent coach of three or more NFL teams since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970. He joined Seattles Pete Carroll and John Fox of Chicago as the leagues current coaches with their third different team. And both Carroll and Fox have coached in multiple Super Bowls.I must be doing something right that people believe in me and trust in me to take over their team and lead it, Mularkey said. And Im very confident in my ability. I think Im very good at what I do regardless of records or personal comments from people that dont know me very well.A ninth-round draft pick in 1983 out of Florida who played nine NFL seasons at tight end for Bud Grant in Minnesota and Chuck Noll in Pittsburgh, Mularkey believes his diligent note-taking kept him around much longer than skill or his surgically repaired knees should have allowed. When Strunk fired Ken Whisenhunt on Nov. 3 last season, one of the first things Mularkey did was start checking the notes taken in meetings.After a full offseason, Mulaarkey is seeing better answers to his questions.ddddddddddddIn team meetings, I call it rapid fire. ... Ill pop them a question that they need to know immediately in front of their teammates without looking at their notes, and its been pretty impressive, especially the rookies, Mularkey said.Ive picked on them a lot this offseason, and I think theyve already been forewarned: `You better be prepared when you come in that team meeting room.Competition starts every morning during the team meeting usually pitting receivers versus defensive backs, offense against defense and special teams.Whatever he has in store for us, we never know, wide receiver Kendall Wright said. Were just ready for it. It makes you think. It makes you go home and study stuff because you never know what hes going to do.Linebacker Wesley Woodyard, who said NFL players love to compete even at rock, paper, scissors, understands what Mularkey is trying to achieve.If you have the mindset `I have to compete against this guy across from me and I have to beat him and I have to win, it definitely translates onto Sundays, Woodyard said.Me, I can only speak for me just being a linebacker thats made his career off of competition. It brings the best out of everybody, and we welcome it.Yet as a head coach, Mularkey has only one winning season to his credit -- his first when he went 9-7 in Buffalo in 2004.He resigned after going 5-11 in 2005 and was fired in Jacksonville after going 2-14 in 2012 with a new owner who wanted to rebuild. Now hes trying to turn around a franchise that has had one winning season since last reaching the playoffs in 2008.Mularkey believes the Titans are the right team at the perfect time for him.Im happy with whats going on here, Mularkey said. Theres a lot of good things that are different than any of the previous two places Ive been a head coach, and Im excited.Im a little bit different in the sense that if theres anything Im trying to have a little more fun with the players, that they enjoy coming into work every day. We work hard, we work really hard, but we also are going to have fun doing it.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Teresa M.
