of dealing with pressure.Rapinoe said she has adapt

Before Simone Biles became a MEGASTAR, she was just your typical (super talented gymnast) teen who fangirled over the members of the U. Marc-Edouard Vlasic Jersey .S. gymnastics team just like everyone else.While you probably cant remember a time when Biles?wasnt dominant in the sport, we got proof that it existed. In 2013, Biles received her very first text message from Aly Raisman. Her reaction is adorable and without chill -- and was thankfully documented on Vine by her sister Adria for all the world to see. A fan reposted the video on Twitter, and you really need to see it right now.Biles shared the video as well and commented on just how far her relationship with Raisman has come.And, needless to say, Raisman felt pretty cool about the whole thing.Just how all great friendships start, right? What a difference three years makes.See something entertaining on social media that you think deserves to be shared? Let me know on Twitter, @darcymaine_espn. Maurice Richard Jersey .B. - Sebastien Auger made 44 saves as the Saint John Sea Dogs edged the visiting Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2-1 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Roberto Luongo Jersey . Irving scored 23 points, Tristan Thompson had 20 points and 10 rebounds and the Cavaliers beat the Denver Nuggets 117-109 on Friday night. . "Four now," Carl Gunnarsson told the Leaf Report proudly following a 5-2 victory over New York on Tuesday night, the clubs fifth straight at home. BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil -- Megan Rapinoe knows this is a different Olympics for her.Forget about playing in every game and being a leader on the field. The attacking midfielder will have to find a way to contribute more with her words than her skills.Rapinoe isnt fully fit after undergoing surgery on her right knee and will be on the bench as the Olympic tournament kicks off on Wednesday. She arrived in Brazil already knowing she would have a limited role as the U.S. womens team tries to win its fourth straight gold medal.Obviously Im not going to be a 90-minute player in this tournament, she told The Associated Press on Tuesday. Ill have to work my way back in. I think that getting into the knockout round Ill be able to come off the bench and make an impact that way, being more of a role player.Rapinoe, who helped the U.S. win the gold at the 2012 London Games and clinch the World Cup title last year in Canada, hasnt played with the U.S. since tearing her ACL in a training session in Hawaii before a scheduled World Cup victory tour match in December.Ill be as ready I can possibly be, but with the understanding that its a different role than Im used to, a different role than I had last year, said the 31-year-old Rapinoe. I dont know how many minutes Ill be able to play. Theres always an element you only get in the games and you only get from playing. Physically I feel good and I feel confident.There were doubts about whether coach Jill Ellis would include Rapinoe in the Olympic roster because of her fitness. The players addition to the team despite her lack of playing time came as a surprise to many.A big part of the selection is that she is a game-changer. And a game-changer can come in for 15 minutes and make a difference, Ellis said. Her and I had many conversations with the meddical team, just in terms of how to use her in this tournament, and how we have to build her as the tournament evolves. Jay Bouwmeester Jersey. llis said the coaching staff already knew ahead of the games that Rapinoes playing time would be limited, especially in the first few games. She said having Rapinoe on the team was important because of her set-piece brilliance, her crossing and her specificity in certain situations.The other thing that Megan brings is just this personality that puts people at easy, Ellis said. And this helps the teams as a whole, just to have a good balance and base in terms of dealing with pressure.Rapinoe said she has adapted quickly to her new role.I think theres a lot I can bring off the field, she said. Im one of the older players on this team, this is my fourth major championship, so I have quite a bit of experience. I think its a balance of giving what the team needs but also making sure that Im getting what I need in coming back from this injury.One of Rapinoes replacements has been 18-year-old Mallory Pugh, who is making her debut in a major competition and is trying to take advantage of the veterans advices.Off the field she has been great, Pugh said of Rapinoe. She just brings this positive vibe to everyone. In the last World Cup I just watched her a lot and looked up to her in the way she played.The U.S. makes its tournament debut on Wednesday against New Zealand at the Mineirao Stadium in the southeast city of Belo Horizonte. The Americans then face France and Colombia in Group G of the 12-team competition.---Tales Azzoni on Twitter: His work can be found at Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
