Almost 13 years ago, the Sandra Schmirler Foundation was created by a group of the late curlers friends with the support of the Canadian Curling Association and Scott Paper. Wholesale Jaguars Jerseys . The idea came about just over three years after Schmirler was standing on the podium in Nagano 1998, signing our national anthem after capturing the Olympic gold medal in womens curling. Unfortunately, it was also just 14 months after she passed away from a rare form of cancer at the young age of 36. Much like the success Schmirler enjoyed on the ice, the foundation started in her name has been a winner at providing hospitals with funding for the care of premature and critically ill newborn babies across Canada. Despite all the big curling shots she made over the years, including the famous in-off at the 1997 Olympic Trials, Schmirler said giving birth to her only daughter at the time was her best delivery. It was clear that Schmirler never lost sight of what was important in life, which makes her name a perfect fit for the foundation, which bears the slogan Champions start small. Currently, over 30 hospitals benefit as a result of funding from the foundation and last year, almost $300,000 was made available to those hospitals through grants. And over the 13 years the foundation has been in existence, almost $2.5 million has been allocated to 34 different hospitals Also, six junior curlers received $5,000 each in the first annual Spirit of Sandra Scholarships last year, including Kristin Streifel, who skipped Schmirlers home province of Saskatchewan in this years Canadian Junior Curling Championships in Nova Scotia. Sunday is Sandra Schmirler Day at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Montreal and TSNs Vic Rauter will be hosting the annual telethon for the foundation.

Inter Milan ended its five-match winless streak in all competitions by beating 10-man Bologna 3-1 on new manager Claudio Ranieris debut, while injury-plagued AC Milan edged Cesena 1-0 with an early goal from Clarence Seedorf.CHICAGO -- No Chicago White Sox were more maligned than catcher Tyler Flowers and the teams bullpen in the early months of the season. So when they flipped the script Friday night, they could only hope it was the sign of better things to come. Flowers, who entered with a .218 batting average, drove in the go-ahead run with a seventh-inning double, and four pitchers combined to retire the final 22 batters in the White Soxs 3-2 victory over the Houston Astros. "Yeah, its a good time," Flower said. "Ive been feeling better for the last 10 games maybe. I havent had a whole lot of success statistically, but Ive been seeing the ball a lot better." Alejandro De Aza singled off Scott Feldman and stole second before Flowers delivered the game-winning hit. He entered the game with only 12 hits in his last 116 at-bats. "There were some good things that happened that you like to see coming out of the break." manager Robin Ventura said. Namely, the performances of Daniel Webb, Ronald Belisario and Zach Putnam, who were flawless out of the bullpen. Webb (5-2) retired six consecutive batters in relief of Jose Quintana to earn the victory. Belisario and Putnam pitched a scoreless inning apiece, and Putnam earned his second save. After Quintana allowed a pair of unearned runs, he set down his final 10 batters. The left-hander allowed three hits and two walks in five innings. Houston didnt have a baserunner after Jose Altuve singled with two outs in the second inning. "Q did a great job. Webb and Bel did great jobs," Putnam said. "We hit the ball and made some plays. It was a good way to get back in the second half. "The four days (off) couldnt have come at a better time. We recharged and just hit the ground running." Feldman (4-7) took a four-hit shutout into the sixtth inning, when Dayan Viciedo hit a two-run homer into the left-centre field bleachers to tie it. Cheap Jaguars Jerseys China. Three batters earlier, Feldman was struck on what he called the back "right cheek" by a smash off the bat of Alexei Ramirez, but said that had no effect on him. Feldman allowed three runs, seven hits and three walks in seven innings. "I just hung a curveball there, and Viciedo didnt miss and put a good swing on it," said Feldman, who figures to be the subject of trade talk this month. "More times than not, if you go deep in the game like that, our guys will come out on top." Aided by a two-base error, Houston took a 2-0 lead in the second inning. After Jon Singletons single eluded Viciedo in right field, Matt Dominguez scored from first base while Singleton continued to third. Robbie Grossman followed with an RBI groundout. Adam Eaton tripled, and Jose Abreu doubled in the first inning, but Chicago failed to take an early lead. Grossman threw out Eaton at the plate on a shallow fly ball to right field, a call upheld by video replay after a White Sox challenge. NOTES: Newest Chicago Bulls members Pau Gasol and Nikola Mirotic threw out first pitches. ...
