100 relay squad kept 100 champion Schippers in the hunt for a second gold when it qualified for Sundays final.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Adam Vinatieris reunions usually consist of a personal trip down memory lane. Dallas Stars Jersey .At least there he can take a few moments to reflect on the six AFC championship teams he played on, the four Super Bowl rings he won and all those famous kicks he made along the way.One day, the Indianapolis Colts seemingly ageless kicker figures hell finally be able to participate in some of those memorable halftime celebrations, such as the one taking place Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.Until then, the leagues oldest player at age 43 will focus on what he does best -- making kicks -- and those former teammates enjoy the showThere have been a few (missed reunions), the Colts kicker said Wednesday. Some in New England, too. Yeah, they gave me the token invitation, knowing that I couldnt go because I was still playing.Forty players, nine coaches and Hall of Fame executive Bill Polian are all expected to attend the 10th anniversary of Indianapolis Super Bowl title.Some of the household names -- Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne and Jeff Saturday -- are expected to attend.Some of the postseason stars -- Joseph Addai, Marlin Jackson, Dan Klecko and Dominic Rhodes -- also are coming back. Even a handful of forgotten players, such as Rocky Boiman and Bo Schobel, have made plans to attend.There will be several noticeable absences, too.Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy will miss the reunion because of his Sunday Night Football duties. Hall of Fame receiver Marvin Harrison, 2007 NFL Defensive Player of the year Bob Sanders and record-setting defensive end Dwight Freeney, now with the Atlanta Falcons, are not on the current list of confirmed guests.Then there are Vinatieri and Robert Mathis, the only remaining players from the title team still on the Colts roster.While they may try to sneak out for a team dinner Saturday night or find a few spare moments to meet with some old pals, they know this is a working weekend that may force them out of most of the festivities around town.Its a good problem to have, Vinatieri said.While Vinatieri and Mathis are still focused on collecting another ring, their paths have taken divergent paths this season.The 35-year-old Mathis was slowed early by a bad knee and he has struggled to round into form in the final year of his current contract. Through nine games, the Colts career sacks leader has 19 tackles, only two sacks and four tackles for loss.Vinatieri, meanwhile, has thrived . Hes made an NFL record 44 consecutive field goals, including his past nine from 50 yards or longer.Regardless of where their careers stand now, neither has forgotten the lessons from their postseason success.Just four weeks after allowing 375 yards rushing to Jacksonville in mid-December, the defense completely shut down Kansas Citys Larry Johnson, the leagues No. 2 rusher. In the divisional round, Vinatieri made five field goals at Baltimore -- in a 15-6 win that featured no touchdowns.In the conference championship game, the Colts used two touchdowns from linemen to rally from an 18-point deficit to defeat their biggest nemesis, New England.And they capped off their title run by pulling away from Chicago in rainy Miami.Basically it was our time and we just followed our leader, Tony Dungy, Mathis said. He drove the point home that it was our time and stayed the course. Faith is a powerful thing when you believe you can get things accomplished.Now, like then, the Colts (4-5) are trying to defy those who have been counting them out. The quest continues Sunday against surging Tennessee (5-5) .But while other guys spend the weekend retelling stories, rekindling friendships and relaxing, Vinatieri and Mathis will happily spend this weekend working.Its for them and we were part of that, Vinatieri said. But for me its about trying to win a game.Game notes Three players missed Wednesdays practice with injuries -- right guard Denzelle Good (illness), defensive end Kendall Langford (knee) and cornerback Patrick Robinson (groin). ... Defensive tackle Henry Anderson (knee), left guard Jack Mewhort (triceps) and right tackle Joe Reitz (concussion) all were full participants at practice. ... Andrew Luck was selected as the Colts Ed Block Courage Award winner after returning from a lacerated kidney that forced him to miss the final seven games in 2015.---AP NFL website: and Craig Hartsburg Jersey . Lack made 20 saves for his third shutout of the season as the Canucks blanked the St. Louis Blues 1-0 in the first post-Olympic game for both teams night. Dallas Stars Hoodie . -- Patrick Reed got an early start in golf. . Catch all the action on TSN2 at 11pm et/8pm pt. The nine-time Big 12 champion Jayhawks are positioning themselves for another title, as they have run out to a flawless 6-0 mark in conference play thus far. AMSTERDAM -- Kenyan-born teenager Yasemin Can clinched a long-distance double for Turkey at the European Championships on Saturday, dominating the 5,000 meters with spectacular running from the front, much as she had done during the 10,000 three days earlier.Can, 19, was only cleared to run for Turkey in March and made the most of this with a devastating kick after two kilometers -- and never letting up -- to win in a slow 15 minutes, 18.15 seconds, beating defending champion Meraf Bahta of Sweden by 2.39 seconds. She had won the 10,000 in much the same style.Can qualified for both Olympic events but said the daring front-running tactics would change when she faced the best in the world, mostly from her continent of birth.I am not going to run alone there. I will follow someone, Can said.It was the fourth gold for Turkey at the championships, and all won by athletes who were foreign-born. With Russia not competing because of a doping ban, the medal table was bound to look different. But few would have expected Turkey to do this well, especially after finishing the Euros two years ago with a single bronze.In the pole vault, Greeces Ekaterini Stefanidi wiped the championship record of Yelena Isinbayeva off the books by 1 centimeter, clearing 4.81 meters when gold was already assured. The Russian is still trying to make it to the Rio games under a special exemption. Custom Dallas Stars Jersey. Anouk Vetter gave the Netherlands a third gold medal at the championships with victory in the heptathlon.Vetter dominated the two-day, seven-event competition and won with a national record of 6,626 points, breaking the old mark of heptathlete turned sprinter Dafne Schippers. Antoinette Nana Djimou of France was second.The Dutch 4x100 relay squad kept 100 champion Schippers in the hunt for a second gold when it qualified for Sundays final. Schippers skipped the first round of the relays because of a tight hamstring and is still unsure to run Sundays final. Schippers is a favorite for Olympic gold in the 200 and also stands a good chance in the 100 next month and does not want to endanger her fitness now.Can was not the only 19-year-old to win Saturday. German Max Hess did likewise in the triple jump with a Europe-leading effort of 17.20 meters. Hess already proved his credentials when he took silver at the world indoors in March.In the biggest upset of the evening, double Olympic javelin champion Barbora Spotakova failed to successfully defend her European title and finished fifth, well behind winner Tatsiana Khaladovich, who won with a Belarussian record of 66.34 meters.
