Happy Thanksgiving to all. My best wishes to each one of you and your families. Enjoy the day while I watch the Raptors take on Real Madrid at the ACC.  A few quick NBA thoughts.     1. Stephen Curry and Andrew Bogut (Warriors): Good health! Thats what Warriors fans are hoping for from these two guys. If they can be in the lineup on a consistent basis, the Warriors will have an opportunity to make nice strides this season. Playoffs? I think theyre a bit too young and inexperienced yet for that in a good conference but theyll be entertaining and a load to deal with every night for most teams. Curry has a good feel for the game and shoots it quite well and Bogut is a skilled a big man as youll find with a nasty streak. Mark Jacksons got to be thrilled to have these guys available. 2. Al Horford (Hawks): I know the Hawks lost Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams and Kirk Hinrich (Johnson in particular overwhelmingly) but with the addition of a guy like Lou Williams who can fill it up, theyll still be battling for a playoff spot in the East. Might be a lower seed but they still have enough to make it. I doubt theyll be as good a team in terms of talent but they might have a little better chemistry. Horford makes a big difference. Forget the numbers for a second, just watch him.  Hes a true pro; consistent, skilled, tough and produces on both ends. They missed him big-time last year. Steady in his approach and will allow the newcomers to get adjusted in time. 3. Jeff Green (Celtics): Glad that hes got the heart issue behind him that caused him to miss last season. Hes a good all-around player that wont wow you in any way but will be a significant/versatile player for Doc Rivers.  Can guard multiple positions and score inside and outside. Will he ever be your leading  rebounder, scorer or assist guy? No. Can he be one of your top 3/4 guys and contribute to winning? Yes. Chatting with Celtics folks last season, they really missed him and are very high on him as evidenced by their commitment to him all through last season and with the contract extension. 4. Flopping: Like the stance that the NBA took on this and I think it will be administered in a solid/common sense fashion. Will it completely go away? No. But with fines that will be publicized after a warning for the first offence, the word will be out on the street who the repeat offenders are and referees, teams and fans will be all over the players who walk the fine line to clean up their act. Bottom line is better officiating in a pro-active sense where the official basically tells the actors that, Hey, Im on to your act and dont try that nonsense on my watch. It will start to lessen if a no-nonsense approach is consistently in effect. 5. Alan Anderson (Raptors): Not sure how many minutes hell get this season for his team which will have lots of competition (talent level good enough?--still a significant question mark) at the 2/3 spots but when I watch him, I can tell hes an intelligent player whos been well-coached. Hes got solid shooting mechanics and makes all the high percentage/fundamental plays and plays within himself. When I look at a guy as someone youd like to have on your roster in one of the final five spots that can fill in when needed and wholl bust his tail everyday in practice and be reliable, thats nice to have rather than some young guy who takes the professional opportunity for granted and doesnt approach his work with passion each moment. Every spot, 1-15, means something. Wed all like better talent on our rosters yet the back-end of your roster is significant in how its handled and the type of character guys you have. Makes a difference over a long season. Garrett Graham Jersey .Y. -- Doug Marrone is set to try to turn around an NFL team after improving a college program down the road. Kareem Jackson Jersey .

Haas took advantage, beating three-time champion Novak Djokovic in the fourth round of the Sony Open 6-2, 6-4 on Tuesday. The upset snapped Djokovics 14-match winning streak at Key Biscayne, where he won the tournament in the past two years. Eight days shy of his 35th birthday, Haas became the oldest man in 30 years to beat a No. 1 player. "Playing against someone like Novak and coming out on top at this time of my career, its unbelievable," Haas said. "This is what I play for." Haas improved to 2-14 versus No. 1 players. The Germans only other win came against Andre Agassi in 1999. The top-ranked Djokovic has lost two of his past four matches after winning 22 in a row, including the Australian Open for his sixth Grand Slam title. "All the credit to Tommy," Djokovic said. "He played a great match and he was the better player, no question about it." The oldest player in the top 50, Haas is making his 13th appearance at Key Biscayne and advanced to the quarterfinals for the first time. His opponent on Wednesday will be Gilles Simon of France, who rallied past Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia 5-7, 6-2, 6-2. With Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer skipping the tournament, Djokovics defeat clears a path for Andy Murray, the 2009 champion and 2012 runner-up. He beat Andreas Seppi of Italy 6-2, 6-4 and was to play Wednesday against Marin Cilic of Croatia, who defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-5, 7-6 (4). No. 3 David Ferrer will play unseeded Jurgen Melzer on Wednesday. No. 4 Tomas Berdych will face No. 8 Richard Gasquet on Thursday. On the womens side, five-time Key Biiscayne champion Serena Williams advanced to Thursdays semifinals and tied the womens record for career victories in the tournament by beating No.dddddddddddd 5-seeded Li Na 6-3, 7-6 (5). Williams opponent on Thursday will be defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska, who hit a desperation shot behind her back for a winner en route to a win over Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium 4-6, 6-4, 6-2. Djokovic appeared out of sorts from the start of his evening match. During his second service game he became annoyed at fans shouting as he was about to serve. "Its definitely the worst match I have played in a long time," Djokovic said. "I just didnt feel good on the court. Conditions were really much, much different from what I have played in previous matches. Balls didnt bounce at all." For the final few games, Haas wore a lavender shirt, a red sweatband, black shoes with lime trim and a blue cap. In other words, he won ugly. "Yeah, Im pretty pathetic I think when it comes to colour matching," he said. "Sometimes I look at myself in the mirror before I go out and Im like, Jeez, what was I thinking? I guess if I maybe had a clothing contract it would be different." Haas, who is ranked 18th, has been as high as No. 2 -- way back in 2002. He tumbled to No. 373 at the beginning of 2011 after requiring hip and elbow surgery. The German closed out the victory with a forehand winner, then shared a warm exchange at the net with a gracious Djokovic, who gave the crowd a wave as he left the court. "I was fighting," Djokovic said. "I was trying, all the way up to the last ball. There are days where you just dont feel good on the court. Nothing really goes your way. This is one of those days. But all the credit to him for making me play this bad." ' ' '

When, in 1951, the regulations changed and it became compulsory to obtain chronometer swiss watch replicas certification from an official body, Rolex went further and made sure its movements obtained swiss replica watches certificates bearing the citation “particularly good results.” This distinction gave rise Swiss Replica Watch to the famous phrase still inscribed on Rolex watch dials today: “Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified”. Since the creation of the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute) in 1973, special best replica watches citations are no longer given on the certificates. But the signature on Rolex dials is a reminder that since the early 20th century, Rolex has played a central role in the development of the modern precision watch.
