MADRID, Spain -- Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso expects to return to the field soon as his recovery from foot surgery nears its end. http://www.jordan11uk.com/men-s-nike-le ... 5-100.html
. The Spain international has yet to play this season after undergoing surgery on a broken bone in his right foot. Alonso says hes started to kick the ball around but there are still a few things to test before full training at Madrid can begin. The former Liverpool player says "I dont want to rush back and set myself back. I dont want to set a date." Alonso underwent back surgery in the summer only to pick up this foot injury in training as he prepared to return from the back problem. Madrid is five points behind Spanish league co-leaders Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. http://www.jordan11uk.com/women-s-nike- ... -gold.html

. Carey Price didnt, but he still came out on top against one of his rivals for the No. 1 job at the Sochi Games. The Anahim Lake, B.C., native was stellar in making 39 saves in his home province and Lars Eller got credit for a bizarre short-handed winner as the Canadiens defeated the Canucks 4-1. http://www.jordan11uk.com/men-s-air-jor ... white.html
. The Americans, skipped by John Shuster, seized the advantage in the eighth end by scoring five points for a 7-3 lead. The Czechs pulled two back in the ninth, but Shusters team of third Jeff Isaacson, second Jared Zezel and lead John Landsteiner ended with another point to secure the last Olympic berth on offer. MINNEAPOLIS -- The Vikings released punter Chris Kluwe on Monday, bringing an end to his colorful and outspoken eight-year stay in Minnesota. Kluwe announced the news on Twitter shortly after meeting with Vikings GM Rick Spielman, a move that had been expected ever since the team spent a fifth-round draft pick on punter Jeff Locke at the end of last month. Kluwe said he knew what was bound to happen as soon as he saw Locke come off the board and he was pleased to get his release earlier enough in the summer to give him a chance to catch on with another team. "If that was the direction the Vikings wanted to go, it gives me a better chance to go to another team," Kluwe said in a phone conversation on Monday evening. The 31-year-old Kluwe averaged 44.4 yards per punt over his career in Minnesota, including a career-high 39.7 yard net average last season. But he ranked just 17th in the NFL in punting and was due to make $1.45 million this season, making him a prime target to be cut. He said he thinks he has four or five good years left in his playing career before he heads off to other endeavours, of which there are sure to be many. During his time with the Vikings, Kluwe earned a reputation as one of the most opinionated players in the league. He criticized union leadership during the lockout, wore a patch on his uniform to protest the lack of punters in the Hall of Fame and, most notably, became a vocal supporter of gay rights, penning a number of thoughtful, and occasionally profane, columns on the issue for various websites. He also plays in a rock band in his spare time and is an avid video gamer. "Whenever I was in the locker room or on the football field, I was focused entirely on football," Kluwe said. "It was my one and only focus. When I left the locker room to go home, I lived my life." Kluwes release means the leagues two most vocal advocates for gay rights are now out of work. Linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo was cut by Baltimore in April. Vikings special teams co-ordinator Mike Priefer made it clear later last season that Kluwes headline-grabbingg nature was wearing thin with him. http://www.jordan11uk.com/305889-110-ai ... 24007.html
. When Kluwe was fined more than $5,000 for putting a message reading "Vote Ray Guy" over a patch on his jersey commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in December, Priefer voiced his displeasure. "Those distractions are getting old for me, to be quite honest with you," Priefer said. "Do I think Ray Guy deserves to be in the Hall of Fame? Absolutely. But theres other ways of going about doing it, in my opinion." Kluwe said he couldnt say for sure if his off-the-field pursuits contributed to his release. "I dont know," he said. "I wasnt in those meetings." When the Vikings drafted Locke, Spielman was asked if Kluwes outspoken nature would factor at all into the decision to keep him or cut him. "I have no issues if Chris Kluwe wants to express his opinion," Spielman said then. "Thats his right. Thats his freedom of speech. This is just a football decision to bring in a guy and come in and compete." In the end, Kluwe didnt get much of a chance to compete. Locke attended the teams first rookie camp over the weekend, and Kluwe was out a few days later. It was a move similar to last season when the Vikings drafted kicker Blair Walsh in the sixth round and quickly released the more experienced, and more expensive, Ryan Longwell. "So sorry to hear about (Kluwes release)...one of the best legs Ive seen and best teammates I had in all my years," Longwell tweeted. "Do you believe in deja vu??" Also factoring into the decision is the Vikings will be playing their final season in the Metrodome before moving outdoors to the University of Minnesotas TCF Bank stadium while their new stadium is built. Kluwe seemed to have a more difficult time punting outdoors and the Vikings hope the move to the younger Locke will help them in that area. The Vikings also waived rookie receiver Nicholas Edwards and signed two other rookie free agents -- Minnesota State, Mankato receiver Adam Thielen and Northern Iowa tackle Brandon Keith.
