Dick Vitales fight against cancer is nearing a major milestone. Brad Kaaya Womens Jersey . Vitale expects to top the $10 million mark with his eighth annual celebrity gala in Sarasota, Fla., on Friday night. The event will honour former Florida State football coach Bobby Bowden, former Connecticut basketball coach/cancer survivor Jim Calhoun, and Kansas basketball coach Bill Self. The gala raises money for the V Foundation in honour of the late Jim Valvano. Net proceeds go to pediatric cancer research. "It should be really, really special," Vitale said in a phone interview Thursday. "It has gone way beyond my dreams." More than 70 sports celebrities are scheduled to attend, including Florida coach Billy Donovan, Indiana coach Tom Crean, Kentucky coach John Calipari, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo, Miami coach Jim Larranaga, Villanova coach Jay Wright and Florida State coaches Jimbo Fisher (football) and Leonard Hamilton (basketball). The guest list also includes former major leaguer Gary Sheffield, former NFL running back Ricky Watters and 2000 Heisman Trophy winner Chris Weinke. Vitale has a few special guests planned, too. He will have Michigan State junior forward Adreian Payne and his friend, 7-year-old Lacey Holsworth, in attendance. Holsworth has cancer and is scheduled to have a bone-marrow transplant soon. She has become close with Payne over the past year and met Vitale before the Indiana-Michigan State game in February. "She just got clearance to join us," Vitale said. "I guarantee there wont be a dry eye in the place." Vitale also is flying in the parents of Justin Miller, who died April 3, less than three weeks shy of his 21st birthday and after a five-year battle with epithelioid sarcoma. Miller continued playing the drums even after having his dominant arm amputated in 2011. Vitale will present Millers parents with a grant in Justins name for $250,000. "Nothing pleases me more now," Vitale said. "Im selfish. I have five grandchildren. Im about to go watch the kids play tennis. Thats what every kid should be doing. Instead, we have so many doing chemo and radiation. Its just not fair." In total, Vitale will have 11 families of cancer survivors, including eight of the survivors, on hand at the Ritz-Carlton. Everyone there should witness a record-breaking night for the event, topping the $1.8 million raised last year and reaching the $10 million milestone over eight years. "People have been great to me," Vitale said. "Ive got goose-bumps thinking about it." Jarrad Davis Youth Jersey . Fellow centre Pavel Datsyuk remains out because of a concussion. Zetterberg has 11 goals and 19 assists for a team-high 30 points, and Datsyuk has a team-high 12 goals and 11 assists. Kenny Golladay Jersey . -- Matt Rupert scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the London Knights extended their win streak to nine games by defeating the Owen Sound Attack 4-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. . Durant finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds, Jackson matched his career high with 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting and Lamb scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting, lifting the Thunder to a 94-88 win over San Antonio and snapping the Spurs 11-game winning streak. While some might think its unfair to label players as free-agent busts three-quarters of the way through the season, the NFL is a bottom-line business, and results matter.If players?arent performing to the level of the deals they signed this offseason, judgments have to be made.Twelve poor games doesnt mean the player is a complete bust, though. Theres still time to bounce back from rough starts. Those who receive big money have the remainder of their contract to live up to expectations, as long as the team that signed them doesnt release them.Fans complain if their teams arent aggressive in free agency, but teams cant build only through free agency. They have to build through the draft and supplement their roster with free-agent signings. Sure, the 8-4?New York Giants deserve credit for spending more than $200 million in?free-agent money over the offseason?and improving their defense. But not all of their issues are fixed. The New York Jets invested heavily last year in free agency and came out with 10 wins, but now they are sitting near the bbottom of the league at 3-9. Kenny Golladay Womens Jersey. Heres my ranking of the most disappointing free-agent deals from the 2016 offseason, taking into account the value of the deals they signed:1. Brock Osweiler, QB, Houston TexansThe Texans signed Osweiler to a four-year, $72 million deal this offseason, hoping to bring consistency at the quarterback position. Osweiler has been consistent -- consistently below average. He has 14 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions. Hes averaging a dreadful 5.8 yards per attempt. Anything below 6.4 is considered terrible. The Texans are averaging only 17.3 points per game, which is 3.9 points below their numbers from last season, when?Brian Hoyer?was playing quarterback. Houston has scored 24 points or more in only three games this season. Osweiler is 1-5 on the road. Whats worse: His slow start has allowed the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts to catch up to the Texans in the AFC South.
