"Should the cooperative bid ... not satisfy the technical bid requirements, the bidding process will be re-opened to all Member Associations under the conditions set out by the FIFA Council", the North American officials wrote in their letter.
The 82-game marathon that ends tonight. There's some irony in that the Habs may have actually done better if this game was in NY. With grit and physical play stymieing Montreal's usually fluid offense, any sort of early momentum gained by the home team at Bell Centre from the crowd was snuffed out.
And five-time major victor Phil Mickelson, two months shy of his 47th birthday, will try to replace Jack Nicklaus as the oldest champion in Masters history. "No, that's not really cool", Thomas said.

There was even a surprise shuffle at the top in the East with the Celtics taking over the first spot after the Cavs struggled in the last few games.

It also turns the tie on its head, with the red-hot Nick Kyrgios due to take on John Isner next before Saturday's doubles rubber.

It's a completely different story for Utah. A win would be their first in the playoffs since 2010. That led to the Trail Blazers eliminating the Clippers in six games. Blake Griffin is the top performer in Clippers averaging 21.6 points. There can be a case made that he's in the running for Most Improved and Defensive Player of the Year, both astounding accolades that he could add to his young career.
Since picking up three points in their first away game of the season (2-0 at Swansea City), Hull City have won just two points in 14 Premier League away games since (W0 D2 L12).

Midfielder Mesut Ozil was also targeted by the vocal group of fans, who accused the Germany global of not doing enough for the cause.

Finland's Valtteri Bottas took his first Formula One pole position in the final qualifying session at the Bahrain Grand Prix to end Mercedes' team mate Lewis Hamilton's bid for a seventh in a row. When I got the time I was a bit down to be honest, because four-tenths was a lot more than I expected, also given how good the lap felt. "It could be his first win, and if it's not he will get a win".
Indeed, in an interview with the Mail on Sunday last week, midfielder Mesut Ozil said: 'It's not just important for me but for the whole club. He continued: 'But we must also accept that modern life has changed a little bit. He did say that his relationship with owner Stan Kroenke had not changed and that any division at boardroom level was nothing to do with him. "I think every club and every player has to make decisions", Wenger said, giving his strongest warning yet against taking the ...
When it was back on the feet it was apparent the stand-up battle was one of skill against power, as Whittaker showcased movement and a clean jab, while Souza winged power shots over the top in hopes to scoring a home run blow. He circles out and then comes in with an uppercut that lands. Whittaker (19-4) fought off a pair of early takedown attempts from Souza, one of the world's most unsafe grapplers, and showed incredible poise to pick the Brazilian apart via strikes without making any ...
That's my first one, guys", Bottas proudly told his team over race radio before adding he is finally starting to feel comfortable with the auto. "Valtteri's been right there with us from the beginning, so nothing changes", Hamilton said.

The marquee matchup of the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs is an Original Six series between the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens. And this may seem unusual when they're playing a team that beefed up as much as the Canadiens did at the trade deadline, but the Rangers are going to have to play some smashmouth hockey here.
The Square is busy on a nightly basis this season with the Toronto Maple Leafs also making the playoffs. Getting back to this season, it's been a back-and-forth debate primarily between Harden and Westbrook. The Bucks have won just 1 of the last 8 meetings between the two teams. But they were schooled by a Bucks squad Saturday that started a pair of rookies in Thon Maker and Malcolm Brogdon and is led by the 22-year-old Antetokounmpo, nicknamed the "Greek Freak".

Slaven Bilic has shrugged off the speculation surrounding his job as West Ham manager and insisted: "My head is clear". " I go to every board meeting and in the board there have been no discussions over Slaven, he is our manager and we all like him, he is a great guy ".
And Ibrahimovic, 35, has likened himself to the fictional character, played by Brad Pitt in the film of the same title, who gets younger in appearance with age. And that's only because they beat Sunderland on Sunday. We've done everything to win today , we knew that it was not going to be easy. The Black Cats lost Bryan Oviedo to injury in the 37th minute, and Sebastian Larsson in the 43rd minute to a straight red card.
The Atlanta Braves played their first game at the new SunTrust Park on Friday, and it was pretty ideal. The Atlanta Braves' new stadium is ready for its first real unveiling. "Now with 85 down, everyone is taking 285, so that's sort of the main drag for everyone now anyways so I think it would be monumental if they got this in time", said another Braves fan.
City's array of attacking talents had been well-marshalled by Southampton until Leroy Sane, unlucky to have a first-half penalty appeal waved away, converted Kevin de Bruyne's pass to finish a superb counter attack in the 77th minute.

Some brilliant soccer skills from Franco Sabato brought Argentina level at the break though, after he broke away to score from 60 metres out.

They were bounced from the conference finals in 2013 and 2014 by James' Miami Heat teams. Kawhi Leonard is better, the Spurs overall are better. These teams tied the season series 2-2.

An 11-0 Pacers run had Cleveland on the ropes, but the Cavaliers' much-maligned defense clamped down just enough to get the win, with Kyrie Irving making several key defensive plays.
Rask was anything but lonely at the Canadian Tire Centre on Wednesday night, where he was instrumental in Boston skating off with a 2-1 win, in a game the Senators are ruing they let slip through their fingers.

Barcelona have been rocked by the news that Brazilian forward Neymar will miss this month's El Clasico against Real Madrid after being handed a three-match suspension.

If more than one player can reach 20 goals this season, it will really help the team. Captain Troy Deeney was among the substitutes , with manager Walter Mazzarri claiming the forward is tired.

"Many things have happened in almost three years [since I joined Spurs]", he added.

That's the goal: To go to a team, have success and be able to sign a big second deal. I was hoping he would be out of Tennessee a couple years ago just to experience something different.
