on.After the Olympics, Zhang plans Antworten

DETROIT -- Mark Sanchezs screen pass was intercepted and returned for a touchdown -- by a rookie who didnt start playing football until the year after Sanchez was drafted. It was an immediate flashback to the problems Sanchez has had over the last couple years, but at least this time, he bounced back. "I know Im getting better at that," Sanchez said. "I think it comes with maturity and experience. You cant beat yourself up for a mistake." Sanchez threw a touchdown pass before leaving New Yorks exhibition opener, and the Jets went on to lose to the Detroit Lions 26-17 on Friday night. Geno Smith, the rookie who is Sanchezs main competition this preseason, left in the third quarter with a right ankle injury. Lions rookie Ziggy Ansah made an immediate impression when he intercepted Sanchezs pass and ran it back 14 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter. "Its not going to stop there. I think he has a lot of great natural talent," Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh said. "He has great instincts for finding the ball and making plays." Sanchez went 10 of 13 for 125 yards. Smith was 6 of 7 for 47 yards but did not lead any scoring drives. Detroits Matthew Stafford played two series, going 3 of 8 for 58 yards and leading the Lions to a field goal. All three of his completions went to Calvin Johnson. Ansah grew up in Ghana, playing soccer and basketball. He put on football pads for the first time three years ago, and now the Lions hope hell become a big part of their defence. Detroit took the 6-foot-5 defensive end with the No. 5 pick in this years draft. Ansah was able to get his hands up quickly when he intercepted Sanchezs pass, and his return to the end zone made it 7-0. "Weve got a lot of work to do," Jets coach Rex Ryan said. "We had 11 penalties, and you cant win if you keep playing first-and-20. We had two turnovers and we didnt get a takeaway. We have to stop the self-inflicted problems pretty quickly." Sanchez looked sharp at times, completing an 18-yard pass over the middle to Clyde Gates on third-and-10, shortly after the interception. The Jets trailed 10-0 when Sanchez led them on an 80-yard scoring drive that ended when he found Jeff Cumberland for a 26-yard touchdown play. Sanchez is coming off two mistake-prone seasons in which he led the NFL with 52 turnovers in that span. His early interception against Detroit did not inspire confidence, but its still not clear what the Jets have in Smith. "I thought all three quarterbacks looked good when the protection held up," Ryan said. Smith was able to walk back to the tunnel under his own power, and Ryan said hed be looked at Saturday. There was only one major injury in the game -- Jets running back John Griffin fractured a leg. The Lions didnt answer all of their questions. The Stafford-to-Johnson connection looked as good as ever, but Detroit needs other receiving threats. Nate Burleson didnt catch a pass, and Ryan Broyles -- who is recovering from a right knee injury -- didnt play. Reggie Bush, who signed with the Lions in the off-season, contributed one highlight on his first carry. Bush slipped to the outside and jumped over cornerback Kyle Wilson, who missed completely on a diving tackle attempt. That play drew some ooohs and ahhhs from the crowd. "He was already low, he was already short, so he just made it kind of easy on me," Bush said. "It was an easy decision." Detroit must finally replace longtime kicker Jason Hanson, who retired. David Akers made a 47-yard field goal in the first quarter, and Norwegian sensation Havard Rugland added kicks of 49 and 50 yards in the second half. Rugland became a hit because of a YouTube video he posted last year that showed him kicking a football to a friend on a boat in a lake, among other tricks. Shaun Hill, Detroits backup quarterback, went 11 of 18 for 136 yards and a touchdown. NOTES: The Jets were without WR Santonio Holmes, who has been out with a foot injury. RB Joe McKnight was also out -- hes been going through the leagues official concussion protocol. ... Lions S Louis Delmas (left knee) did not play either. ... Detroit WR Matt Willis had three catches for 51 yards, including a fine grab in the back corner of the end zone for a 15-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Custom Kansas City Royals Jerseys .

The front entrance to Citi Field was already crowded with hundreds of cheering fans hours before a Mets-Braves game in June, watching a dozen intense competitive eaters devouring stacks of hot dogs on stage.Among the audience for the Nathans Hot Dog Eating Contest qualifying event were Team USAs table tennis Olympians. They arrived early for their appearance, at an invitation from the Mets to throw the first pitch of the days game. Alas, Olympians or not, their presence was completely overshadowed by ... people devouring hot dogs.That is the reality for many years, said U.S. Olympic coach Massimo Costantini of the teams moderate profile. Costantini represented Italy for 23 years as a player and competed at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, South Korea.In Rio, Costantini will oversee Team USAs six players: three females (Jiaqi Zheng, Lily Zhang and Yue Wu) and three males (Yijun Feng, Tim Wang and Kanak Jha).The 16-year-old Jha, an Indian American, is the first U.S. athlete born in the 21st century to qualify for the Olympics. He was selected to throw out the first pitch that Sunday.I was a little bit nervous, he said, speaking of the difference between swinging a paddle and pitching.It was a good pitch. The baseball made a perfect landing in teammate Lily Zhangs borrowed glove. These two, along with Zheng, were individually coached by Costantini. They were trained at India Community Center (ICC) in Milpitas, California, a town just north of San Jose.Table tennis used to be a basement game in the United States, especially among Asian immigrants, but it has grown significantly more popular during the past decade. According to USA Table Tennis (USATT), a nonprofit group promoting the sport domestically, about 19 million Americans play table tennis recreationally at about 250 table tennis clubs in America. Each year, more than 350 tournaments are organized.ICC, one of the largest clubs in the country, has 30 match tables and 14 full-time coaches. It claims to be North Americas largest dedicated table tennis center. Another Olympian -- Tim Wang of Houston -- trained there.Team USAs other coach, Lily Yip, is perhaps the best curator of table tennis in America. A retired professional, she began playing the game in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou at age 7. She moved to the U.S. in 1987 and represented Team USA at the 1992 and 1996 Olympics. Aside from her commitments to the national team, she has been coaching in New Jersey for more than 20 years.I have witnessed the development of the sport in America firsthand, Yip told ESPN.com.For years, her table tennis club in Dunellen, New Jersey, has been a household name for plenty of northern New Jerseys Asian immigrant families, many of them Chinese and Indian. The club serves as the regions breeding ground for the sport, since many of Yips students come from these local families.For Yip, table tennis is a family business. Her husband Barry Datteel also coaches at the club, along with her son Adam Hugh and daughter Judy Hugh.ddddddddddddYips son-in-law, Cory Eider, is the high performance director for USA Table Tennis. He can proudly pull up a video clip archived on his cellphone, showing a 2009 ESPN feature on the family that calling them the first family of table tennis.A day before the Olympians trip to the Mets game, they had a fundraising exhibition game at Yips club, a curtain raiser that allowed local table tennis enthusiasts to witness Team USA up close. With more than 200 people packing the venue, the six athletes took the challenge from promising youths in friendly matches. The event ended up raising $25,000.In the past, table tennis made headlines when Ariel Hsing -- who competed in the London Olympics -- was invited to play against Warren Buffett and Bill Gates. The fanfare surrounding that event turned into a lasting force to shore up the influence of the sport. After all, for most Americans, it is known only as pingpong.Here we are, we are hungry for sparks, said USA Table Tennis CEO Gordon Kaye.In Flushing, the six athletes shared a total of $1,000 prize money.Its not much, but better than nothing, said Yue Wu, a Beijing-born former professional player who came to New York in 2008 at age 17.Last November, Wu won the Pan American Games in Toronto to qualify for Rio. She trained in the basement of her uncles house in Fort Lee, New Jersey, for six hours a day, six days a week. During weekdays, she would board the bus to Manhattan, where she coaches at a club. Her famous students include Judah Friedlander, the comedian and actor of NBCs 30 Rock.It is very hard to find quality opponents to train with, and it is also hard to maintain conditions, Wu said. You only have yourself, so you have to be mentally tough enough to survive.She makes about $40,000 a year by coaching. After the Olympics, she plans to play in France, where she hopes to make more. Eventually, she wants to save enough to open her own table tennis club in New York City.Tim Wang and Lily Zhang both played at the London Games four years ago, both losing in the first round. Americans have never won an Olympic medal in table tennis, and this is unlikely to change in Rio, as it remains nearly impossible for any country to challenge Chinas domination.After the Olympics, Zhang plans to go back to school to pick up where she left off. A sophomore physiology major at the University of California-Berkeley, she took a year off to train for the Olympics.Feng, a native of Nanjing, China, will be a freshman at the University of Georgia in the fall, majoring in business. And the youngest Olympian of all, Jha, will return to high school.As for Wu, Wang and Zheng, they will continue to play and coach, waiting for their next opportunities.
