• Though cleared, Redskins will go easy with RG3

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Robert Griffin III put on his knee brace and passed the perfunctory Washington Redskins conditioning test on the eve of training camp, then declared he has ”nothing left to prove” – at least physically – in his return from major knee surgery.

    That’s doesn’t mean he’s all the way back.

    Griffin said Wednesday he won’t participate in 11-on-11 drills in the early days of camp and likely won’t play in any preseason games. The quarterback who likes to keep the throttle wide open is going to have to exercise a bit more patience as he and coach Mike Shanahan – who have shared blame for how Griffin got hurt – try to work together to get him on the field for the regular season opener Sept. 9.

    ”They want to make sure we’re not doing anything too soon that we don’t have to do,” Griffin said. ”Let some of these other guys get ready for the preseason. If it comes around that I’m ready to go, then maybe in the third preseason game, but as far as my understanding goes, preseason’s really not even in the air. … I think Coach feels like I can play without any preseason, so there no need really for that. Patience is the key.”

    Griffin had reconstructive surgery on two ligaments in January after injuring his right knee multiple times in a playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Team doctors and coaches cleared him for practice within the last week, setting a remarkable pace for a rehab that can typically take a year or more.

    ”In my mind there’s nothing left to prove,” Griffin said. ”And that’s the way you have to approach the game when you’re coming off of an injury. If you pass the test, then in your mind, you feel like you’re ready to go.”

    But Shanahan is determined to play it safe with his franchise quarterback, having said he wants to make sure Griffin is 100 percent before playing in a game. Shanahan will meet with reporters Thursday, but Griffin appeared to lay out the key points in the latest important conversation between player and coach.

    ”I think we’re on the same page,” Griffin said. ”When we sat down and talked about what I was going to do in training camp and the weeks to follow, it was a good moment for me because of all the hard work had paid off. And they’re going to allow me to get back out there and do what I do, and that’s play football and just have fun with the guys.

    ”We all made mistakes last season. We all understand that. We all talked about it, and it’s time to move on. … Me and Mike Shanahan‘s relationship is paramount to this team being successful.”

    Shanahan was not only criticized for leaving Griffin in the Seahawks game too long, but there was also scrutiny over whether the Redskins’ offense – along with Griffin’s aggressiveness – left him too vulnerable. He led the team to its first division title in 13 years, but he missed all or parts of four games with various injuries.

    ”The goal is longevity in the league. You also want to win,” Griffin said. ”And so, as a quarterback, I don’t like to conform and say you can’t win outside the pocket. I think you can win outside the pocket. You’ve just to be smart about it. And that’s what I’ve learned over the past six months about myself and what we need to do to win. Maybe that’s keeping me in the pocket a little bit more. Maybe that’s throwing the ball away a little bit more.”

    Griffin said he’s been an ”overachiever” his whole life, so the thought of being eased back into the practice routine and skipping the preseason isn’t part of his nature.

    ”If they want to me to patient right now and ramp it up later, then I’m willing to do that,” he said. ”And they know that I’m going to be – I wouldn’t say compliant – but I’m going to follow those rules, follow those guidelines, do as much as I can within that, and when it’s time to go full-go, then I’ll be ready to go.”

    ”If you talk to a lot of the vets, they don’t like the preseason,” he added. ”That’s a well-known fact. Even I know that – and I’ve been the league only one year.”

  • Cycling-Strict testing means cycling cleanest sport, says Froome

    Comments Off on Cycling-Strict testing means cycling cleanest sport, says Froome
    May 31, 2020 /  Racing, Sports

    PARIS, July 22 (Reuters) – Stringent drug testing means cycling is now probably the cleanest sport, Tour de France champion Chris Froome said on Monday.

     Froome is the first rider to win the Tour since American Lance Armstrong was stripped of his seven titles for cheating and, perhaps unsurprisingly given cycling’s drug-tainted past, the Briton found the finger of suspicion pointing at him during the race.

     “The way the sport is now and the way the testing is, it is so, so strict. Each rider has a blood passport where almost on a monthly basis, readings are taken,” Froome said in an interview with Reuters TV the day after his triumph.

    “People don’t realise the amount of testing we actually go through. I am confident to say that cycling really must be one of the cleanest sports, if not the cleanest, just because of the way it’s policed and controlled.”

    The Team Sky rider had to endure the inevitable questions about doping from the media during the three-week race.

    “That did add an aspect, a different aspect to our race that not only were we thinking about the race and the challenges that presented but also that aspect off the bike of having to answer questions about our legitimacy and what we did to get to this point,” the 28-year-old said.

     “I completely understand those questions, it’s normal given the revelations from Lance Armstrong’s era. I am just happy that I have been able to answer those questions and to show people that the sport really has changed,” Froome added.

    Kenyan-born Froome now has his sights on September’s world championships in Italy but believes this year’s Tour win could be the first of many after he dominated the 100th edition of the race.

     He became the second successive British winner of the Tour after Bradley Wiggins when he crossed the finish line on the Champs Elysees on Sunday to finish four minutes 20 seconds ahead of Colombian Nairo Quintana in the overall standings.

    The mountainous route on this year’s race suited Froome, who is a fantastic climber and a good time trialer, and he finished with three stage wins to his name.

     “It is still a little bit early to be talking about that but the Tour de France is a beautiful race, it is the pinnacle of our cycling calendar and I would love to be back again to try and target future editions,” he said. (Writing by Alison Wildey in London; Editing by Clare Fallon)

There are numerous reasons behind slow drains but the most common cause is debris accumulation in the sewer lines. Have experts flush the sewer line in order to effectively remove all those build up and once that’s done, all your drains should easily flow again.

    Lower Chances of Clogs
    Clogs can be a mere nuisance in your house but if it happens to your place of business then it may likely cause considerable disruption. Ensure that things are constantly running smoothly by having professionals clean the sewer line on regularly scheduled times. Maintain its cleanliness by clearing away grease, rubble, dirt, and other materials that clog pipes.

People who try to remediate sewage issues should definitely wear protective clothing and gloves. It’s also crucial that they open windows and doors to let in the fresh air as well as turn off electrical power in the property. The best option would be to let experts handle the sewage flow; they are experts and thus know exactly what they’re doing.

    Factors to Consider when Searching for a Drywall Contractor

    It is normal for every individual to try to get the maximum value of his or her money. As a result, most people want the best quality but affordable solutions when it comes to constructions. Most people have opted to go for drywalls as opposed to plastering when it comes to the interior of their homes and offices. Among the benefits of using drywalls include affordability as well as durability. One may also need to note that drywalls tend to be easy and fast to set up and maybe amazing in a case where you work with a competent contractor. Talking of the contractor, you may need to know some of the aspects you may need to consider when searching for a drywall contractor.

    When searching for a drywall contractor, the experience is not something you can under look. You would need to take the years of experience the drywall contractor has been working as one of the first considerations. You would need to remember that experience tends to come with expertise. The longer the contractor has been on the job, the higher the chances that he or she has been perfecting his or her skill, and the higher the chances that he or she will yield better results to your project. You would also need to note that many years in a given field tend to come with skills and knowledge. In a case where you get the right drywall contractor, you would be sure that he or she knows what to do as well as how to do it within only a short time.

    The reputation of the contractor is yet another aspect you would need to consider when searching for a contractor. In most cases, years of experience tend to go with a reputation bearing in mind that businesses with a bad reputation never survive in the business world. You would need to ensure that you conduct your research well, ask around, and also read online reviews. You would need to take note of the quality of work by the drywall contractor as well as other aspects such as on-time deliverables, and communication. You would need to take note of the aspects the former clients liked as well as aspects they did not like about the drywall contractor in question and weigh your options well.

    You would also need to consider the cost aspect of drywall installation in question. In a case where the contractor offers you free estimates, it could be a good sign that you are dealing with a genuine drywall contractor. A good drywall contractor tends to help you plan your budget well and tends to make sure that there are no hidden costs. He or she tends to put everything on the table so that you can adjust your funds appropriately. You would also need to ask for a breakdown of the budget to better understand the cost of the whole project bearing in mind that most people tend to think that they have been overcharged whenever everything is not put on a paper. Once you are done with shortlisting, you can give the drywall contractor a call for further discussion.
