EDMONTON -- Odell Willis is the happiest man on the Edmonton Eskimos who cant control his rage. Matias Fernandez Jersey . Hes the ever-smiling great teammate who has become a CFL vagabond due in part to self-centred behaviour. In other words, the newest Eskimos rush end is a walking enigma -- with 200 pairs of size-13 sneakers. "Show me the mawnnnnaaaay!!!" Willis -- in his six-foot-two, 255-pound frame -- shouts as he walks amongst his teammates in the Eskimo fieldhouse, a mile-wide grin on his face, mimicking wide receiver Rod Tidwell in the movie "Jerry Maguire." Eskimos camp is the fourth stop in five years for the 28-year-old import. "Sports is one of the things you can get a clean slate at in life," said Willis. "So were just ready to start clean, start fresh, new team, new look. Give this city something to smile about and be proud of." It has been a long journey. He was born in 1984 in Meridian, Miss., two decades after the area became the nationally infamous dark heart of racial hatred for the murder of three civil rights workers. He starred at the University of West Georgia, then went on to dominate arena football, prompting the Calgary Stampeders to give him an audition in 2009. He played half the season for Calgary, then got traded to Winnipeg. His sack total was 10 that year. The next two years in Winnipeg were the high point, when Willis became an outsized, outspoken media darling, the self-styled "Mayor of Swaggerville." He registered 11 sacks in 2010 and 13 in 2011 to earn CFL all-star recognition. His big game was matched by a big heart. Sitting out a practice with a bad hip one time, Willis became the teams roving ambassador to a group of young fans, escorting them around the field, introducing them to players, making friends for life. His big game was also matched by big talk. "Whos Brent Johnson?" he once asked in a public war of words with the B.C. Lions legendary sack leader. He made highlight reels for lightning-fast end runs, turning offensive tackles into turnstiles, followed by devastating hits to the quarterback. But there were penalties, many penalties: facemasking, roughing the passer, unnecessary roughness. Midway through 2011 his indifference to defending the run relegated him to passing downs only. He was not pleased and during the Bombers preparations for the Grey Cup tweeted hed rather be at home eating Thanksgiving dinner. The end came when he demanded the Bombers release him from his contract so he could try his luck in the NFL. Instead, they shipped him west to Regina. "Sometimes you have to make decisions based on more than talent alone," sighed then Winnipeg head coach Paul LaPolice at the time. Riders GM Brendan Taman rationalized it the other way. "If they can help you win games, provided theyre not being a total idiot off the field, you have to look at bringing them in," Taman said in March 2012. Two weeks later, Willis was arrested for alleged drunk driving in the pre-dawn hours in suburban Atlanta. In Riderville, he saw his sack totals fall to six in 2012, while the penalties continued to mount. "Hes going full speed trying to kill the quarterback, and its not about killing the quarterback," Saskatchewan coach Corey Chamblin told reporters last season. "He just has to find more control and more balance." When free agency arrived on Feb. 15, Saskatchewan stood by as Willis headed further west, this time to Edmonton, a team that has been bottom feeding for years and makes no secret of its willingness to adopt the leagues reclamation cases (see Eric Tillman and Jerome Messam). He joined the Esks three minutes after free agency began, an obvious violation of rules prohibiting teams and free agents from negotiating beforehand. The Eskimos were fined $10,000 for tampering. The team paid up and wouldnt discuss it further. Eskimo head coach Kavis Reed said hes had a heart-to heart-with Reed and the message is clear. "Swaggerville will not be coming west," said Reed, who coached Willis in Winnipeg. "Odell is a phenomenal talent. He is a young man that his teammates are going to absolutely love. "He loves to go to work and when he goes to work, he goes to work. But he also loves to make things fun. Thats a good trait to have as a teammate -- but for us its all about the team." Willis agreed, to a point. "The mayor (of Swaggerville) is here, but were going to be more professional about ourselves this year, try to lead these young guys to a Cup," he said. But the Odell Willis who mugs for the media, jokes with his teammates and lauds the "shoe connoisseur" who tracks down Michael Jordan sneakers for him from all over North America doesnt plan to change. "Youre going to see this 24/7, because this who I am," he said. Notes: The Eskimos beleaguered offensive line took another blow Tuesday, when the team announced that Orrin Thompson has been lost for the year with a knee injury. The six-foot-six 320-pound tackle was injured on the first day of camp Sunday. Lucas Ocampos Jersey . Thousands of fans at Mosaic Stadium will be cozying up to each other in an effort to stay warm in chilly temperatures and block the Prairie wind that locals say can knock your socks off. Lucas Biglia Jersey . Paul Pierce couldnt believe he missed at the end. Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the leagues most productive bench, and Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night after blowing a 27-point lead. http:///...milan-fc-jersey.aspx . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U. CINCINNATI -- The Chicago Cubs best regular season in 106 years came to an end Sunday as their final game, a 7-4 victory over the Reds, highlighted a remarkable year.Down 4-3 with two outs and no one on base in the ninth inning, Chicago rallied for four runs to take the lead.It was the Cubs 103rd win of the year. They were the only team in Major League Baseball to reach the 100-win plateau this season.The boxes have been checked in the regular season, manager Joe Maddon said before Sundays game. We won the division, we stayed relatively healthy, weve played well. ... All this stuff we talked about in camp regarding embracing the target and dealing with the pressure, weve done all those things.In the process the Cubs will have multiple candidates for multiple awards. Starting pitcher?Kyle Hendricks may have hurt his Cy Young cause a little Sunday as he gave up six hits and four runs over five innings, raising his ERA to 2.13. Its still good enough to win the ERA title by a wide margin. Left-hander?Jon Lester finished second in ERA at 2.44, making them the first teammates to finish 1-2 in the stat since the 2005 Houston Astros?Roger Clemens and?Andy Pettitte.With Cy Young candidate Max Scherzer?of the Washington Nationals seeing his ERA rise to 2.96 on Sunday, one of the two Cubs could take home the top pitching honor.I dont know which one deserves the Cy Young Award, catcher Miguel Montero said recently. Maybe they can split the award. Leonel Vangioni Jersey. .At the plate, its a similar situation between sluggers Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant. They combined for 71 home runs and 211 RBIs while each hitting .292. Bryants 7.6 WAR led all National League players while Rizzo ranked fifth at 5.8 going into Sundays finale.Bryant is considered the front-runner for MVP after being named minor league player of the year and rookie of the year over the past two seasons.There were other major team accomplishments, including the pitching staff leading the league in ERA, while the Cubs top four hitters all produced on-base averages above .380. But as Lester noted Saturday, the past 162 games will have much less meaning if the Cubs dont go far in the postseason. Their last championship came in 1908.This season isnt anything unless we do what we showed up at spring training to do -- win a World Series, Lester said.The Cubs will have four days off to prepare for their second consecutive postseason appearance. Last year, they were the fun underdog and upset two teams that finished ahead of them in the standings. This year, they enter the playoffs as the team to beat, a near wire-to-wire winner in the division, sporting the best record in baseball for much of the season.Its go time, Lester said. Now we have to live up to the expectations and hype. Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys NFL China Cheap Jerseys 2019 NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
