ve driver. He was one hell of wheel man." Doug Elkins is a former race announcer who now writes about the sport. He had known Wa Antworten

Any top ten has some sort of explicit or implicit criteria. Jordan 1 Retro High Og For Sale . Top ten dunks: flare, power, finesse, levity of the moment. Top ten goals: style, creativity, dare I say panache. With names the parameters of selection would seem subjective, but Ill boldly predict that I get a bunch of head-shakes with the proceeding list. 10) Rasmus Ristolainen – Finland World Junior Hockey Player The suffix “lainen” is as prevalent as the recent onslaught of “D”s and “L”s followed by apostrophes in basketball and football. The alliteration is nice, but giving it that extra boost is the hockey-punnable “risto”, like a wrist shot. And LOOK AT THE HAIR! 9) Barkevious Mingo – Cleveland Browns Another suffix gaining prominence – “ious”, “ius” or “eon” – Jadeveon Clowney (future NFL first-round pick), Latavius Murray (Oakland Raiders running back), Latavious Williams (former NBA second-round pick). The long “e” and “uh” that follows simply flow off the throat. Add the “bark” required of an angry linebacker with a unique surname and youre making the top 10. 8) Tie: Luke Kuechly (pronounced “keek-lee”) - Carolina Panthers, and Kiko Alonso - Buffalo Bills Coupled “k” sounds are kooky, cool and make a nice combination. 7) Starling Marte – Pittsburgh Pirates You got a first name that includes the word “star” and is a mix of “starlet” and “darling”. Nearly trumping the first half of his full name is the last name itself – you cant get any better than a non-French person with an accent aigu sound, even when there isnt actually an accent aigu there. 6) Chael Sonnen – MMA Fighter I suppose the UFC fighters prevalence as a loud mouth helped him garner the sixth spot. But reputation aside, “Chael” is a freaking fighters name. The composite syllables are punchy and fit the profile of a great pugilist. 5) Nerlens Noel – Philadelphia 76ers Theres that alliteration again. Also that French elegance of “Noel” kicks the former Kentucky superstar into our top five. 4) Anderson Silva – MMA Fighter Ive always had a thing for last names as first names: Brady Quinn, Carson Palmer, Carter Ashton, Cooper Manning, Connor McDavid, Grady Little, Harrison Barnes. 3) Kentavious Caldwell-Pope – Detroit Pistons When you add a hyphenated last name youve increased its brilliance potential by 50 per cent. Im pretty sure Kentavious fate to become a pro athlete was determined at the baby-naming, as I wouldnt foresee any Kentavious Caldwell-Popes working at the local Canadian Tire. 2) Johnny “Football” Manziel – Texas A&M A classic nickname for a guy who fits the bill. A superstar quarterback, playing for a team called the “Aggies” in a town called “College Station” – so beautifully old school. Rounding out the names appropriateness is the attitude off the field. The guy was invited to Peyton Mannings QB training camp for kids and (allegedly) got too drunk in New Orleans to fulfill his duties. The masses have jumped on Manziel for being too much of a partier, meanwhile every one of us would have done the same thing at his age. 1) Ha Ha Clinton-Dix – Alabama Football Does this really require an explanation? Authentic Online Jordan Stores . Numbers Game looks into the Wild getting Matt Moulson from Buffalo. The Wild Get: LW Matt Moulson and LW Cody McCormick. Cheap Jordan 1 Retro Yellow .com) - Tonight will go a long way in determining the two wild card spots in the Eastern Conference. http://www.cheapjordan1retro.com/cheap-jordan-1-retro-gold/ .com) - Many people at Eastern Washington are waiting to see if star quarterback Vernon Adams Jr.PORT LEYDEN, N.Y. -- Kevin Ward Jr. was crafting a reputation as a wheelman, the kind of driver who could race vehicles on any track without fear. Hed sit up on his seat, floor it, and zip his way through a maze of cars straight toward the front of the pack. For points. For fun. Often for little money. "He would go to tracks that a lot of other drivers wouldnt go to," Chuck Miller, the race director and president for the Empire Super Sprints circuit, said Monday. "If we had co-sanctioned races with other organizations where we really werent giving points or anything, but it was a deal where you wanted to see how you stacked up against the other competition, the Wards were willing to go and do that and see where they were at." Ward began racing go-karts in 1998 at age 4. In 2010, he moved on to sprint cars and was Empire Super Sprint racing rookie of the year in 2012. The 20-year-old raced mostly on dirt tracks a few hours from his home in Port Leyden, a village of 700 in northern New York. Ward was killed Saturday night about 140 miles away at a clay track in Canandaigua. NASCAR champion Tony Stewart was the big name in the field, racing with the young guys while he was in the area for a Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen the next day. Ward and Stewart tangled, and Ward hit the wall. Ward walked on the track apparently to confront Stewart, and was struck when Stewarts vehicle seemed to fishtail. On Monday, several cars were parked in front of the Ward home in Port Leyden. A police officer stood across the street, politely asking reporters not to park on the roads shoulder. Helen McHale has lived across the street for 30 years and remembers hearing the noise when Ward raced go-carts. Kevin Ward Sr. runs a successful painting business, and locals thought his son might make it big in the racing world. "His dad goes to every race," she said. "Hes a good kid, polite, big smile, and theyre a good family." Stewart and Ward shared a love of racing sprint cars: high-powered, winged cars built for running on short oval or circular dirt and paved tracks. Drivers have to hit the gas to turn, not necessarily use the wheel. After the crash, Ward was standing to the right of Stewarts familiar No. 14 car on the dimly lit track. According to video and witness accounts, Ward was struck by the right rear tire and hurtled through the air. Authorities questioned the 43-year-old Stewart once on Saturday night and went to Watkins Glen to talk to him again Sunday. Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero said that investigators dont have any evidence at this point to support criminal intent. Povero said Monday there were no plans "at this time" to talk to Stewart again. "At this time, there are no facts that exist that support any criminal behaviour or conduct, or that any probable cause of a criminal act, in this investigation," he said. Povero said the autopsy was completed Monday and found Ward died of blunt force trauma. Cheap Jordan 1 Retro Black. Stewart said Sunday "there arent words" to describe his sadness over Wards death. Stewart hasnt announced whether hell drive in this weekends NASCAR race at Michigan International Speedway, but his short track "hobby" is on hold. He wont appear Saturday in a race in Warsaw, Indiana. "It is still an emotional time for all involved, Tony included. He is grieving, and grief doesnt have a timetable," spokesman Mike Arning said Monday. Canandaigua Speedway promoter Jeremie Corcoran said the track has cancelled Wednesdays event to give "my family, staff, fans, and racing teams time to grieve and process all that has occurred." Driver Matt Tanner, a friend of Wards, was a few cars back from the collision. Ward had been a good friend for years, a member of a small, tight group of drivers who travelled to various races around New York state, parts of Canada and Pennsylvania. "I saw his car sitting there and when the ambulances pulled up I realized what was happening," Tanner said. He hasnt watched the video and doesnt plan to. "Your emotions are running so high. Stewarts known for being competitive, and Kevin was just as competitive," said Tanner. So competitive that hed take his life into his own hands by stepping into traffic in a black firesuit on a dark track? No one will know for sure why Ward made the treacherous decision to stalk Stewart. But perhaps he was inspired by Stewart himself. Known for his volcanic temper, Stewart is among the drivers who made highlight reels by tossing helmets at windshields or throwing punches at competitors. The action captivates fans and is part of NASCARs allure -- and inspires the next generation to mimic the bumping and brawling of their heroes. What better way for a young driver to make a name for himself than being the one that stood up to Smoke? Driver Cory Sparks, a fellow driver in Saturdays race, said he and Ward became friends five years ago. He said Ward was aggressive and competitive and that the two men had "had our feuds" but that he was proud to call him a friend. "I dont want Kevin Ward to be remembered as a victim in a Tony Stewart accident," he said. "He definitely had a future in this sport. He was a very aggressive driver. He was one hell of wheel man." Doug Elkins is a former race announcer who now writes about the sport. He had known Ward and his father for several years. Elkins said he expected rules prohibiting drivers from getting out of their cars during races will be better enforced around the country. He hadnt heard of any bad blood between Stewart and Ward. "Anyone would want to beat him, Elkins said, "hes Tony Stewart." Memorial services will be held Wednesday at the Trainor Funeral Home in Boonville, New York. The funeral is Thursday.
