Following his first start after being traded to the Edmonton Oilers, goaltender Ben Scrivens posted a series of tweets to his verified Twitter account (@scrivens_30) that were critical of a blog that the Edmonton Sun ran on Thursday, along with some of the comments it received. P. J. Williams Saints Jersey
. The blog, written by columnist Anthony Vasquez-Peddie (@AVPreports), took aim at selective tweets from Scrivens wifes Twitter account regarding her feelings about the weather in Los Angeles. "The big loser in Wednesdays trade that sent goalie Ben Scrivens from the Los Angeles Kings to the Edmonton Oilers may be Mrs. Scrivens," Vasquez-Peddie wrote. "Ben, who was born in Spruce Grove, is used to crippling Alberta winters. "Based on her Twitter feed, Jenny Scrivens, a native Californian, clearly is not. Jenny couldnt have been happier after her husband was traded to the Kings last off-season after spending three years in Toronto with the Maple Leafs. Now that shes headed back to the Great White North, however, she has to deal with awful things like fall, snow and ice." Vasquez-Peddie pointed out a series of tweets from Jenny Scrivenss Twitter feed first published by The Sporting News. "Exactly!," she tweeted just after the Leafs-Kings trade. "I paid my dues with 3 years in Toronto and 4 in New York. And I will never complain about weather again. Ever." Scrivens, who was acquired in a deal from the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday, was quick to defend his wife with his own response on social media. "Hey @AVPreports, classy move writing a slam story by cherry-picking tweets my wife sent to make it seem like she doesnt like Edmonton," he wrote. "Youre gutless. And to those of you who commented on the article or tweeted at her about how shes lazy (even though shes not in Edmonton now because she has a fulltime job in LA she cant just up and leave) or that she married rich (even though we got married while I was playing in the AHL) or that shes dumb (shes an Ivy League and graduate school grad), just know Im embarrassed that you are an Edmontonian. "Way to make my family feel welcome." Vasquez-Peddie responded to Ben Scrivenss tweets later in the evening, explaining it was just a tongue-in-cheek feature. "A few things first," he wrote. "1) The blog was not an attack on Jenny Scrivens. She wrote tweets about how happy she was in L.A., in particular ... How much she enjoyed the weather as compared to Toronto. "Now that her husband is moving to Edmonton, shell be forced to experience...Bad weather again. Complaining about the weather is something everybody does. The way she did in the first tweet shown in the blog...Was something many people poked fun at. Sort of an Uh oh, here we go again moment. The idea of the blog was based on that. Is it gossipy clickbait? Absolutely, and thats how it was sold. We have plenty of beat writers for analysis, I wanted to provide levity." Cameron Jordan Saints Jersey

.S. Open. The fourth-seeded Russians rallied after losing the first set to beat Hingis and Flavia Pennetta 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 on Saturday night.Eight-time champion Rafael Nadal, last years runner-up David Ferrer and Wimbledon titlist Andy Murray were a trio of fourth-round winners Monday at the French Open. The world No. 1 Nadal improved to a remarkable 63-1 lifetime at Roland Garros by crushing Serb Dusan Lajovic 6-1, 6-2, 6-1 on Court Chatrier. The lopsided affair saw the ruthless Spanish great assume set leads of 5-0, 4-0 and 5-0 on Day 9 of the clay court fortnight. "I played with no mistakes and having the control with the backhand, with the forehand from the baseline," Nadal said. "Sure, you never know whats better, but in theory, the theory says that its better win like this than win longer matches." The 13-time major champion Nadal is trying to become the first man to capture five straight French Open championships. Music superstar Prince was in attendance Monday, nearly hidden in the stands, sitting in the very back row of the presidential box at Chatrier clutching a shiny cane. When the Nadal match ended, Prince rose to leave then paused and paid his respects by applauding. The fifth-seeded Ferrer, meanwhile, had a hiccup in the fourth set in an otherwise routine 6-3, 6-3, 6-7 (5-7), 6-1 victory over 19th-seeded former University of Illinois standout Kevin Anderson of South Africa. Ferrer will now appear in his 10th straight Grand Slam quarterfinal. He reached his first and only Grand Slam finall here a year ago before getting whipped by his fellow countryman Nadal in an all-Spanish title tilt. Bobby Hebert Saints Jersey
. . The two will meet in a rematch of that match in a quarterfinal on Wednesday. Nadal, who will turn 28 on Tuesday, is 21-6 lifetime against the 32-year-old Ferrer, including 3-0 at Roland Garros. Ferrer, however, upset Nadal on some red clay in Monte Carlo back in April. "I look forward to playing against David (Ferrer), it is going to be a very difficult match," said Nadal. The seventh-seeded Murray, seeking a trip into only his second-ever French Open semifinal, humbled 24th-seeded Spanish left-hander Fernando Verdasco 6-4, 7-5, 7-6 (7-3) on Court Lenglen. The British star improved to 10-1 lifetime against the hard-hitting Verdasco in reaching his 13th straight Grand Slam quarterfinal. Murrays quarterfinal opponent will be 23rd-seeded French crowd favorite Gael Monfils, who cruised past Spaniard Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, 6-0, 6-2, 7-5. The 2008 semifinalist Monfils is now into his fourth career Roland Garros quarter. The quarterfinals will commence Tuesday when second-seeded 2012 runner-up Novak Djokovic takes on eighth-seeded Canadian Milos Raonic and sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych encounters 18th-seeded Latvian Ernests Gulbis. The former world No. 1 and six-time major champion Djokovic still needs a French Open title to complete a career Grand Slam.
